About Joan

I live in New York City, but have been coming to Maui for the last 18 years. My friends ended up purchasing a home on the island and spend 6 months a year in Paradise. My husband and I came every year him for a month and I was able to sneak away for 10 days... Finally we purchased our condo. I loved it at first sight... but it needed some TLC. After a lot of TLC, one thing lead to another and the next thing you know I completely gutted the unit. It's fantastic and we love it. I spent 35 years in the fashion industry and I currently sell Real Estate in NYC. Ron is a former NYC policeman and retired from the NYFD- fire department.

Joan purchased this condo in 2007

Why Joan chose South Maui

This property is great... centrally located. If it's raining somewhere on the island chances are it's sunny in Kihei. The unit has great light and fabulous views, too. The sunsets are also fabulous and we enjoy watching them from the backyard, lanai or the hot tub. We are close to our favorite beaches in Wailea too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We enjoyed our stay here on Maui, as always. We were here to celebrate our 10th anniversary and also as a "pre-deployment" vacation for my husband.



Your condo is very nice and we were quite comfortable here!



We did most of the tourist type stuff like Hana, whale watches, surfing and zip line adventures. After surfing I found out that Dr. Candy at Kihei chiropratic is pretty darn good in case that helps anyone else while they are here. Tomorrow its home to Wisconsin and 2 degrees F, oh boy!

Elegant condo apartment...comfy bed...beautiful kitchen

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Maui for the first time. We chose this location from VRBO. It did not disappoint us and was exactly as shown on the pictures. Although, the pictures did not show the lush towels and great sheets. It also did not show the closet filled with chairs, cooler, snorkeling equipment and beach mats to use at the beach.

Joan was very kind to work with me and answer all of my questions. She was only an email away and was always prompt at responding. We are most grateful that we were able to have a late check out!

We went to several different beaches, took the road to Hana, went snorkeling to Molokini and Turtletown, and explored old Lahaina. Our weeklong stay started rainy but ended sunny! We were able to find plenty of things to do, places to shop and things to eat.

Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Hi Doreen, You and your husband were great guests! Thank you so much for staying at our condo. I am happy you got to enjoy the island and see and do a lot. Snorkeling is one of our favorites too. I must also admit Maui has some great food too. We tend to cook a lot.... but some of my favorite restaurants are on Maui. Glad you liked the bed, and the towels too. Happy we were able to accommodate a late check out for you. I try to do that for all my guests provided no one is coming in right behind them, so glad it worked out for you. Come again there is still much for to explore. Best Joan

Great view, nice place

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a couple. The top floor view is really pretty to watch the sunrise and sunset. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was really nice with everything you need. It was really nice to have a cooler, beach chairs, towels, etc. The shower was basic and clean. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and could even see a bit of the sunset from it. Very nice people in the complex. The TV was nice, although we didn't use it. Too many other fun things to do! We didn't use the pool or BBQ and tables, but they looked really nice. Nice grounds.

Really great quiet location, a bit away from the really touristy areas, but close to everything. Close driving distance to great restaurants, shopping, etc. in Kehei. Close to great beaches too! The lady at the front desk recommended Nalu's restaurant -- just a few blocks away with excellent fish, salads, poke bowls and burgers and great prices.

Joan was really easy to work with. We requested a late checkout since our flight was later and Joan was accommodating, but the management company got a late booking, so that didn't end up working, but she tried.

Only suggestion would be to have 2 sets of snorkeling gear. And one of the fins was broken on the one set. Luckily, we brought our own snorkeling gear. I broke a fin on mine, so I was able to use the one good one from the set there.

Owner's Response: Rachelle, So glad you had a great trip! We love the place too, it's a little bit of heaven in paradise for sure. I will get another snorkel set for the place. Come back again there's more to see and do. Thanks for staying with us. Joan

Okay ...turned wired and nasty

  • 2 of 5

Our stay was to be 7 nights. We picked this one as it boasted an ocean view and beach access too. My husband was quite disappointed as the view was over 80% parking lot but there was a glimpse of the ocean so technically it was an ocean view. The beautiful picture on the website 'view from the living room' certainly seems suspect - perhaps was shot with a telephoto. The beach is a long trek across the grounds, probably a good couple of hundred yards.

The unit itself was quite adequate - although again, the website claims it to be 'completely renovated' perhaps, but not in recent years. The air conditioner worked well and there were lots of towels and even snorkels and beach equipment - but we didn't use it. The bed was comfy but the bathroom could use a redo. After a couple of days my husband became so disappointed with the lack of view and beach access, we inquired if we could possible check out early after 4 nights. He had connected with friends up island and wanted to go there for our last 3 nights. And so we contacted Joan and she graciously agreed to allow us to do so even though "the contract" apparently has restrictions on this. We were so impressed with her cooperation we thought we would certainly be giving her a 'thumbs up' review. Then the communication began to break down, first regarding the amount of credit we were to get (We were to get 3 nights but she offered 2 until we pointed the math out to her) and then about the condition in which we left the apartment became an issue and is still ongoing. Apparently the management company reported to her that we were filthy people. Yes those exact words. WHAT! we were astonished and offended. What on earth is she talking about? Then we got an email saying she was going to charge an additional $100 because we were filthy. We have never been so insulted in all our experience as travellers. We asked for proof of this terrible accusation, but to date we haven't seen anything ....we went over and over in our minds what she could possibly mean? Granted, we used the bathroom and shower, we dirtied dishes but did load up the dishwasher. Granted, we did NOT make the bed and my husband left the towels in the bathtub as this is usual practice at hotels? Were we supposed to do more? Perhaps mop and vacuum? So besides feeling totally violated and depressed about or 'Hawaiian Experience' we are also out an additional $100.

If we EVER use VRBO again, we will take photos of everything and cover our tracks to

very clean and well-equipped property.

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy with our stay. We loved the kiddy pool since we have our 3 yo daughter. The location is great. Very close to everything from the grocery store, gas station, restaurants, Ulelani shave ice. The owner and management were very responsive and helpful. We definitely would consider using the property in the future.

Lots of pros and a few cons...

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

Great location

Easy access

Pool

Bbq grill

Free parking

Ice cold a/c

Beach chairs

Big tv with DVD player

Great for two people

Wifi included

Well decorated

Quiet

Cons:

Kitchen was lacking some of the basics (i.e. Non stick pan(s), limited quantities of eating utensils)

Shower water temperature cycles from warm, hot, to cold, back to warm.

In a perfect world the shower could use a remodel. Didn't seem to match the level of the rest of the condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. This is the first 3 star review ever in my unit. However thank you for letting me know there is a lack of utensils , are you referring to knives, forks, and spoons? As there was service for 8. I will have someone double check and then if missing I will buy a new set. Pots and pans, I am surprised also as all my pots and pans are non stick and there were plenty of them, more than I would use in my permanant home. Sometimes things have a way of disappearing so I will have my managment team on island check the status and replace what is has gone MIA. As for the shower... too many people ask if there is a tub so to change the tub to a walk in shower is probably not worth the expense. The tub and tile are new white and clean. If the water temp is changing while showering that is obviously something I cannot control Thank you again for your comments and staying in my home.

Beautiful little beach escape

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful island escape with a perfectly appointed kitchen, allowing us to enjoy many meals in. We enjoyed coffee, homemade breakfast and other delicious home cooked meals on the lanai!

Lovely decorations are up to date and themed perfectly throughout the condo. The comfortable king size bed, bedroom ceiling fan, cold A/C and the large flat screen TV in the living room made for cozy indoor relaxation. The grounds are beautiful with gas BBQ grills, pool, sand volleyball court and a short walk across the lawn to the ocean allowing gorgeous sunset photo ops. There were beach chairs and some other beach equipment in the condo to assist in making our stay wonderful!

The condo was on the parking lot side of the complex, allowing views of both the ocean and the mountain. While the view includes the parking lot, this worked out ok, as we were on the quiet side of the complex. Our friends that had nicer views overlooking the courtyard and pool area also had to deal with a lot of courtyard noise from festivities below. Our lanai was quiet in the evenings, providing a beautiful and peaceful ambiance.

The only additions we would suggest would be luggage stands for our suitcases, a fan or someway to move air in the living room as it gets hot with the sliding door open, and some Hawaiian themed CDs. We ended up using our phones with Pandora for music, which is a shame with all the great entertainment technology provided.

We were surprised and disappointed that the complex allows large groups of (non resident) families outside the complex to use the bbq area and pool, most nights it was hard to find room to bbq before dark and the pool was very crowded.

Other units had much more hands on owners, some even called during Tropical Storm Darby and included an Emergency kit, ours did not, which is fine. We're self sufficient people. I did enjoy the nice amenities and the proximity to the elevator and parking spot. Other than the somewhat disappointing view, (the one picture from the balcony has the parking lot cropped out) it was a beautiful condo. We did not have a great experience booking through VRBO so we will probably book directly through an owner next time.

All in all, We would definitely rent this condo again!
