About The Owner

We first set foot on Maui as young honeymooners. Too poor to rent a room, we hiked across Haleakala and camped. It was cold up there! Eventually we made it to a beach, Kamaole II in our Rent-A-Wreck. Lying on our fraying beach mats, we gazed back at the Kihei Akahi and dreamed of our own place one day. Fast forward 35 years, two careers and 3 kids later....

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose South Maui

Hubby and I were dreaming of and window shopping for a sunny getaway to escape the rain for decades. Whenever we returned to Maui, it felt like home. When the Canadian dollar was strong, we took the plunge and began to shop in earnest. We wanted friendly Kihei with a walkable neighborhood and excellent beach. Nothing felt right until we entered D514 and saw that amazing view. It was love at first sight. But the Aloha was missing. So we gutted the place and renovated with Hawaiian ecology and culture in mind: bamboo cupboards, Hawaiian artwork, and mirrors to bring the outside in. A final touch was the conch shell to blow at sunset and the dried pineapple art box on the kitchen wall, a symbol of hospitality. Now we share our love of Maui and Kihei with guests near and far.

What makes this condo unique

Guests return year after year for the personalized and complete comforts of a 'second home'. Absolutely clean and stocked with everything you could need for a beach vacation. Just unpack, get some groceries and begin enjoying a setting with a real Aloha feeling.

It is a beautiful property in a fantastic location on Maui's south shore

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this Maui property. Everything was beautiful and the condo was in excellent condition. It had many extras that made our stay feel like being at a home away from home. The sunset view from the balcony each night was memorable. The location was fantastic with delightful local restaurants like the Kihei Cafe and Coconuts. Our family would highly recommend stating at this property.

Great Place in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were exceptional with everything you need to relax and enjoy Maui. Within a short walk are several restaurants and food trucks with quality seafood. There's also pizza, Mexican food, and other options available too. The beach across the street is well-maintained and family friendly with life guards on duty. The condo property includes two swimming pools, BBQ grills, easy access to parking, and botanical-like gardens. Highly recommend this property!

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This unit has more than met our expectations. The Owner has been amazing from the original inquiry to our next to last day (we're still here).

The unit is clean!! Lovely welcome gift - thanks Diane. The bed was amazingly comfortable with a memory for a topper - I usually prefer a slightly firmer one. We had all the kitchen implements we needed, some spices to start off with and all the beach gear we could use.

We shop specifically for the view and without a doubt our time on the lanai in the early morning and later afternoons/evenings is more than worth the price of admission. (So wish I could add our pictures!!!) We have watched the whales, can hear the ocean - early morning is best and the sunsets - beyond amazing. The back walk up area is wonderful for the sunrise over the mountains. There are no condos behind - a parking lot, road and single family houses on large lots. Bedrooms off the back can be concerning although we had no issues as there is a fairly large green space between the building and the road (never heard traffic). Quiet time is very well respected so people coming and going are rarely heard back there and the unit sits closer to the end so very few people need to walk by.

Unit is updated - furniture is comfortable, artwork, granite counters, etc.

Kameole Beach II is at the end of the driveway and has been a favourite beach for the last 7 years.

Given our location we have watched the maintenance workers in the morning at the pool / BBQ area. They test the water, clean the entire area and the BBQs are meticulously maintained.

All good things seem to come to an end and this will be a very cherished 2 weeks.

I would highly recommend this condo and certainly look forward to returning!!!!

Maui is now my favourite place

  • 4 of 5

This unit is very beautiful with lovely updates. We enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrella. The view is very beautiful and we were not disappointed with that even if the picture shown in the ad is better. Maybe trees have grown taller. The unit is a fourth building in the complex and the furthest from the beach. It's very close to one of the complex pools so to and from that is very easy. One of the details in the ad information caught my attention was that this unit is at the quiet location in the complex. The very noisy bird that screeches at 6 am and on hasn't been notified. The unit next door had their door to the open walkway open and had loud company that were as clear as though they were standing in the room. Don't get me wrong, we did love it there I just want to set appropriate expectations. Our departure ended on a sour note as the code to enter our room was changed well in advance of our 11 am check out time. The on site office couldn't gain us access. The owner was unavailable by phone or email. We finally found information through the office for an off site rental manager whom when we reached gain us entry to get our belongings and bring relief to our sweating in the stagnant hallway air. This contact number could have been included from the owner and I would have had it on my smart phone and we would have gotten in much sooner. I never got a response from the owner. Unfortunate end to a lovely week. Yes, with these expectations I would recommend renting this unit. The many pluses out weighs the negatives.

Owner's Response: Aloha! It's unfortunate that your vacation ended as it did. I do send my personal cell number to each guest as well as the number of my on island contact who usually contacts me within minutes. Thirdly, the office does have access to each unit for emergency purposes. And I do inform guests in the arrival information that that door code does sometimes stop working a few minutes before check out time. So your experience was a first, but my biggest apologies. Sometimes nearby guests can be heard, but I find if I discuss the situation nicely, people are happy to be respectful of others. As for birds and trees, I'm afraid they are out of my control. Lol! Glad you had a good time despite these issues for you.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days and what a great location close to everything. Quiet environment, very clean well equipped to go to the beach. Very cooperative and flexible owner Diane. My wife at time would of like an AC.

Thanks again Diane would recommend in a heart beat

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your nice words and I am happy you had such a great time. We do not have A/C for a few reasons. Having allergies, I am concerned about mold in the A/C units and breathing chilly air. With the cross breeze up on the 5th floor, the ceiling fans, and the sun shade on the lanai, the place to us feels just right. But honestly, the most important reason, is that I love to hear the birds and the ocean and smell the plumeria trees through the open windows. We discovered that at sunset, some plants emit a fragrance. I thought I was imagining it, but it turns out, it is true. I love the natural Maui and I try to help my guests experience that, too. My Aloha, Diane
