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 (19) 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. Both bathrooms are fully renovated and up to date. 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 or Cinnamon Bun Place 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.

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! :)

Great views! Great times! Great condo!

My family and I absolutely loved this place. So conveniently located to restaurants and shops within walking distance (across the street) but not too busy of an area. Of course, you are only required to walk across grass to reach some of the best beaches in the world. When we did spend time in the condo, we would sit out on the balcony to watch the turtles and whales.

Plus, the owners were so responsive and easy to deal with. Highly recommend to anyone interested.

This condo is simply, perfect! We enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to book here again. The bed in the master is comfortable and the AC worked very well. And best of all, the view! Wow it just doesn’t get much better. Laura Gaertner was great to work with and always responded quickly to any questions that I had. Until next time, aloha!

Wonderful stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend the stay at this unit and location. Ocean front location was beautiful with a number of amenities within walking distance. We had a hassle free experience right from the moment of making the reservation with excellent support / responsiveness throughout . Unit owners( Laura/Paul) were excellent to deal with. The unit we stayed in(212)was very clean, beautiful, modern and well maintained. Air-conditioning , free wi-fi and the washer/dryer within the unit was also nice to have . Building and grounds also well maintained. We enjoyed cooking meals on the barbecues provided on the rooftop especially at sunset. Outstanding views from unit balcony. Parking is convenient. Would like to see sight lines leaving parking lot improved on if possible.

Wonderful Place

Stayed at this building before, however this specific condo has many nice finishing touches that have been detailed in prior reviews. If you are looking to spend ample time by the pool, beach or just relax in the condo this is the place for you.
