Why Augie Brescia chose Kihei

We purchased this property as a getaway from our jobs in California. It is always a wonderful break from the hot, dry southern California climate.

Perfect condo with the perfect view

This condo had everything I look for in a condo. Roomy, well equipped, with ocean, island and mountain views from every window. Will definitely return.

Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent three terrific days in Kihei in early May and were blessed to have this unit as our base. I echo all the terrific reviews already placed - the unit was perfectly located, lovely, clean, cool, spacious, and very, very comfortable. It is has very efficient air conditioning which was welcome as it was fairly warm when we were there.

We did not use the laundry rooms - ended up just washing out a few things in the sink, as it was a super quick trip out to the islands and we didn't have much to launder, plus I am fairly sensitive to scented detergent which was what was available for use. If you plan on doing laundry and have the same sort of sensitivity, you might plan on bringing some of your own. The towels and sheets were not scented and there were no issues with scent in the unit.

We travelled with our 22 y/o son and 18 y/o daughter and so the twin beds in the second bedroom and the second full bath worked beautifully for our family. Again, it was very, very clean, super comfortable, and really overall the perfect place.

Check in was very easy and communication with the owner excellent. On the last day we asked for and received a late (3pm) checkout which was hugely appreciated.

There is no downside to this unit, IMO. As mentioned by others, ocean views from every room! Air conditioning! Beach equipment! We absolutely loved it and hope to stay there again. The after-glow from our visit lasted for several weeks :)

Views, views, views!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this unit- wished for a month! The basics- very clean, kitchen extremely well stocked, good appliances, bathrooms well stocked with towels (beach and bath), one bath with a jacuzzi tub, the other with a tiled shower. Furnishings comfortable and clean, beds very comfortable (including sofa bed). Tons of beach supplies- the boogie board and umbrellas ranking high on that list. Pool area clean and not crowded. There's a regular pool, wading pool and jacuzzi. Did not use them, but the BBQs were popular. Basic plastic table and chairs on the main lanai, which did not stop us for using them every day! The beach is fine for jogging, walking and enjoying sunsets. Plan on swimming and snorkeling elsewhere. Close to restaurants and shopping, but away from the busiest parts of Kihei and the unit is away from S. Kihei Rd. so is quiet. Loved the food at Paia Fish Market and the beer at Maui Brewing Co. Clean laundry rooms on each floor. Check in was easy and communication with the owner excellent.

The perks? Direct ocean views from every room! The master bedroom has it's own lanai and I woke up to the most incredible views from the bed every morning. The second bedroom also has a big window and the slider allows views from the kitchen,dining and living rooms. Ok, the bathrooms don't have a view- you'll have to deal ;). We loved it and will stay again on our next visit!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I definitely recommend this condo. The condo is beautiful. It is nicely stocked with everything you could possibly need from kitchen utensils and appliances to beach toys.It was very clean. Every room has a great view of the water. The owner was very prompt with replies and helpful. The beach within walking distance is sloped and narrow. Still great for swimming, snorkeling, and a morning jog. There are many beaches to drive to within 5-10 minutes. The pool was never overcrowded. My 15 month old daughter loved the kiddie pool. We had an amazing vacation! I would recommend Stella Blues for a nearby restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere was great each time we went. Also if you're looking for tasty BBQ go to Beach Bums.

Paradise Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this condo three times. What a treat. In our opinion this is one of the best locations on Maui -- both the building and the condo. The building is located with the ocean right in front of you, enjoy breakfast on one of the two lanais and watch the whales, the kite surfers, wind surfers and our favorite -- the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see in your life. You're not a block away from the water or across the street from the water you are ON the water!

You're not looking over the pool or the parking lot you're overlooking the ocean. Most of the time we haven't used the second bedroom. We spend the money for a two bedroom for the view and IT IS WORTH IT. Once you've experienced a true OceanFRONT property (not oceanVIEW) you won't go back. We're spoiled. We've stayed in other units in this building. Other units are oceanview with either the swimming pool or parking lot :-( as part of your view. They aren't bad -- this unit is just GREAT. Units on this end of the building offer you PRIVACY (within reason) from your lanai. If you face the pool you have all the units from the other building that face the pool able to see you and those down at the pool. If you face the parking lot...........well, enough said. We're not trying to be negative about the other condos or other buildings -- simply trying to point out the advantages of the oceanfront condos. And THIS oceanfront condo is as good as it gets on Maui, you are in the Penthouse. Treat yourself, stay here. You will not be disappointed!

PS this building does not allow pets. For us, this is a HUGE plus. No barking, no surprises to step in --- just sit back and RELAX! Enjoy the sights and (natural) sounds.

Wow, what an incredible value....and a wonderful home away from home~! Equipped to entertain~!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 10 day stay in this fabulous 2 bedroom 2 bath ocean front condo. Wi-Fi was fast, unit is totally equipped to entertain a family. You can tell the owners take great pride in attending to detail. Fresh, clean, and the five 0'clock sunsets are unbelievable. The only problem is there is so much to do on Maui that getting back to the condo for sunset is a challenge. Having a great pool, jacuzzi, and BBQ's on property make for a totally relaxing vacation. Seems more than one trip is necessary to take in all the activities, enjoy views, and still have time to just enjoy this wonderful condo and great location. This complex also has a romantic resort atomosphere and we enjoyed that fact that it had the elevator to the 6th floor penthouse level.
