About Dr. Paul and Mrs. Laura Gaertner

We are the Gaertner family. Paul works as an Emergency Room Physician and Laura is a stay at home Mom to Gabrielle (18) and Samuel (15). We live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Dr. Paul and Mrs. Laura Gaertner purchased this condo in 2008

Why Dr. Paul and Mrs. Laura Gaertner chose Kihei

We LOVE the island of Maui! We have vacationed on Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island of Hawaii, and we found Maui fit our family the best. We enjoy the relaxed island lifestyle as well as the shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities Maui has to offer. Our favorite part of Maui is Kihei. We love that Kihei is warm, dry and sunny as opposed to the rainier north side of Maui. This is why we chose to purchase a property in Kihei and we believe the Royal Mauian is located in the best possible place to enjoy Maui to its fullest. We love Royal Mauian 212 b/c of the full ocean view from it's central location in the building, it's short walking distance to 2 great beaches Kamaole I and II (great for kids), and close to shopping and restaurants. We've done our best to make Royal Mauian #212 luxurious and comfortable yet functional.

What makes this condo unique

Royal Mauian 212 has been fully renovated. You will enjoy keyless entry, zoned AC, as well as the up to date kitchen and bathrooms. We have gone to great lengths to try and think of everything our guests could need while staying in our condo. We placed TV's in the living room and both bedrooms with DVD players for wifi connection (YouTube, Netflix, etc.) We keep the condo maintained and the bedding clean and fresh. In October 2013 we chose to renovated both bathrooms. We think they turned out great! Our guests are sure to enjoy their luxurious finishes and Hawaiian flair. The roof top BBQ area and patio is also fantastic and the view is so spectacular it's hard to put it into words. You'll just have to go and experience it for yourself!

We love that from the Royal Mauian one can walk to the beach, swim and snorkel right out front of the building or just laze on a lounge chair on the ocean's edge. The heated ocean front pool is also very convenient if one would like a break from the salt and sand of the ocean/beach. If you don't enjoy snorkeling or water sports, you can still enjoy watching the turtles and the whales (Nov-May) as you sit on the 100 square foot lanai with your morning cup of coffee. The lanai faces west so is shaded during most of the day but from the lanai, one can enjoy the spectacular Maui sunset every evening.

Within minutes of the condo are great restaurants to eat out - Mexican, Thai, and American cuisine amongst many others. And who can forget SHAVE ICE shop right across the street! Or if you decide to eat in, there are grocery stores close by to purchase everything you need for quick lunches or to prepare dinner cooked in the gourmet kitchen or up on the roof top BBQ and patio area. It makes for a relaxing vacation amidst all the amenities that make this luxury condo and location a great place to come year after year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoy our vacation time. The

Maui experience--island, people, food, and particularly the

accommodations--were terrific. Your well maintained and equipped home met all expectations ... especially the view. I would also add that the concierge service, which

we successfully used a couple of times, is a hidden gem. Thanks again.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance, his 13-year-old son and I spent a wonderful week in this lovely condo. When researching places, must-haves were a nice, updated, well-stocked, quiet oceanfront condo near excellent beaches with snorkeling potential. This condo did not disappoint. The ocean views from the living room, master bedroom and lanai were amazing! The complex is quiet and nicely laid-out. It felt very private and uncrowded, whether we were at the pool, on the lawn out in front or on the rooftop patio. The condo is furnished with everything we needed and more--ample towels, beach towels, sand chairs, and a kitchen well-stocked with cookware, knives, appliances and eating utensils. The location is amazing, between Kamaole Beaches 1 and 2. We loved snorkeling right from Beach 2 in the early mornings. Snorkeling is one of our favorite things and I was concerned how good it could be right off the beach. It was very good! Our 13-year old had never snorkeled before, so it was good to have a calm beach entry and he mastered it in no time. Lots of fish, coral, and more green sea turtles than I have ever encountered on a single snorkel outing. It's fun to watch the turtles rolling in the surf in the evenings from the lanai or the rooftop patio. Grills on the roof were excellent. It was nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit. Security deposit was refunded quickly. Laura was very responsive and easy to work with. Highlights of our trip (other than this great condo): Best fish tacos ever from Coconuts right across the street, excellent snorkeling at Honolua Bay north of Kapalua (get there by 7:30am for one of the few parking spots and some amazing snorkeling), surfing at Cove Beach Park just north of the condo. We watched youtube videos on surfing basics, rented surfboards from one of the trucks parked there, and taught ourselves to surf! We would definitely stay in this excellent condo again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review and description of your stay in RM 212. Now we need to go try those fish tacos from Coconuts! We usually go to Fred's Mexican across the street for fish tacos! Thanks again, so glad you had a great trip! Come back any time! :)

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay for our family. The view was spectacular from the lanai and master bedroom - you cannot get any closer to the water and the beautiful Maui sunsets. It was quite hot while we were there so the air conditioning was great to have when needed. The unit was clean and beautifully updated, few steps away from two beautiful beaches and a short walk across the street to shops and restaurants.

Great base for a Maui vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit. One thing up-front: the parking is great. Parking at vacation condos is wildly variable, sometimes so bad as to almost ruin a vacation. I was relieved when I saw the parking lot.

The unit has plenty of room for two people. The master bedroom has en suite bathroom with spacious shower (I really liked that) and there is plenty of room around the bed; you're not edging around things. The living room has a couch and a smaller chair, both comfortable. The dining area has some frankly uncomfortable chairs but this is by far the biggest quibble I have, and we weren't there to sit around the table and play cards.

Second bedroom has two single beds. It's a tad small but adequate. My wife told me that the couch also pulls out into a bed.

The kitchen is small; if you cook, you may feel a little cramped between the stove and the fridge. But it's not bang-your-elbow cramped by any means. It is well stocked with cooking utensils, pans, dishes, storage containers, as well as plates, cups, bowls, etc. The second minor quibble that I have is that all of the knives were terribly dull. I'm not surprised by this; most people are pretty careless in how they use knives. If you intend to cook during your visit, you may want to bring a sharp knife of your own. Fridge/freezer is huge, fairly new, and will more than serve the purpose. Too bad it wouldn't fit in my suitcase!

The electric stove and oven both performed admirably. I made two dinners and breakfast every morning and at no point was I cursing the stove. Heated up quickly and cooked evenly.

The lanai is spacious for two people. It has a tall table with tall chairs, so that your view is not impeded by the rail--we liked that. There are also four beach chairs here, and all kinds of beach toys. Also a small hard-sided cooler, and a soft-sided cooler. The beach chairs are very comfortable.

Although this unit has AC, it's not what you are used to. There is no temperature adjustment, just a dial that you turn for number of hours. If the AC was on in the bedroom, I found that it got a bit too cool for my liking. If we wanted the AC on at night, the solution was to turn on the living room unit and leave the bedroom unit off. When the breeze is strong, you won't need AC.

Location is great with beaches on either side of the resort. View from the lanai spectacular. The sunsets!

Overall we were very happy with this unit and if we ever come back to Maui, will probably try to get it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your favorable review. We agree with you on the chairs. The dining room chairs are on our list to replace this winter when we are in Maui. We do replace the knives regularly and there is a knife sharpener in the unit but knives get dull with use. Glad you still enjoyed cooking in the unit. We have purposefully set the zoned AC units up this way for ease of use for our guests. We were finding much confusion with adjusting the temperature with remotes, remotes getting broken, lost, etc so we decided to make it a bit easier for people. The temperature is set at a temperature comfortable for most guests on the advice of our property management and AC companies. We are happy that you had a great time and would choose Royal Mauian 212 again if you return to Maui! Mahalo!

This is our second time staying in this condo! We love it here! This condo is stocked with everything you need. It's located between two beautiful beaches that is perfect for snorkeling, swimming with the turtles or just relaxing on the beach. The ocean front view and sunsets are amazing! Location is perfect within walking distance of many shops, markets and restaurants. Laura is easy to work with and responds quickly. We Love Maui and this condo!
