About Joan DeRoche
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. We welcome you to enjoy our home in Maui and come see why we love it so much.
Joan DeRoche purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Joan DeRoche chose Kihei
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.
What makes this Condo unique
Central Air, with ceiling fans. Not every condo on the island has a/c. Designated parking space. Great back yard Amazing Sunsets
Pool / Spa

Sports & Adventure Activities
There are some fabulous things like the pool and hot tub, proximity to the beach, wrap around lanai
Parts of the condo were updated and we enjoyed those: new king mattress, updated kitchen; air conditioning worked well, wrap around lanai was lovely.
However, had we known about the rotting, peeling water damaged ceiling in the bedroom that flaked daily, the moldy ceiling repair in the eating area, the moldy shower curtain liner and bathroom/tub in desperate need of a fan and remodel, we would have booked somewhere else. The general cleanliness of doors and walls were sticky and questionable too.
When we contacted Maui Condo and Home about the ceiling they said they would look into repairing it, but that was all we heard.
Also, there were deck and building repairs going on outside in the bbq area which made daytime poolside time very noisy at times. We were not notified of this ahead of time as were other renters.
We love the location and the condo has great potential.
A great bargain.
The unit and the building and grounds were all great. The condo itself was as advertised. It was on the top (6th) floor with 2 elevators right outside your door. The owner, Joan, was easy to deal with and very responsive. We walked about 100 yards and were treated to beautiful sunsets each evening. The unit was well equipped and very comfortable for the 2 of us. I would definitely stay there again on my next trip.
It is a place to change and sleep, nothing fancy
The pictures and description make the place seem much nicer then it is. While it was clean it needs some TLC.
Great location for exploring Maui
This condo was the perfect home base for our stay on Maui. To be honest, we were out hiking, walking, swimming, and snorkeling a lot so we didn't spend too much time inside-though we did eat dinner on the lanai and that was great. The location is very central so it was easy to reach Lahaina & Maalaea Harbors (for snorkeling and other boat tours) and it wasn't too far from Road to Hana and Haleakala Nat'l Park. The condo itself was clean and spacious enough for two. We cooked some meals here and had mostly everything we needed. The condo complex itself looks a little dated from the outside but the amenities inside (pool, laundry, access to beach) were wonderful. The only minor issue is that the hairdryer was broken. We reported it to Joan and she got back to us right away and offered to send a replacement over but the person who she scheduled to bring the new hair dryer never showed up. We let her know and she was going to take care of it. In general, Joan is very responsive to any questions and issues before and after our stay -she was a great host.I would highly recommend this space to someone who wants a central location for exploring Maui.
I am so sorry they did not bring you the hairdryer. Thanks for letting me know I called again today and hopefully it was brought over right away.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and it seems you really did get to see and do lots of fun activites. There's tons to do on the island no matter how many times I go I always find great things to enjoy especially the snorkeling. Come back again and check out the hair dryer. Again sorry it wasn't delivered I will check tomorrow to make sure it was delivered today
The property was perfect. It’s close to the beach and had all the amenities we needed.
It’s a short walk to the beach. 6th floor is perfect for viewing sunsets. Was a very unique view for New Years. In a residential area and was able to watch locals let off their fireworks. Good location for getting to other parts of the island. We very much enjoyed our stay!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. New Years is special there. The views are great with amazing sunsets. Come back again and spend more time.
We love Jan’s home! Would definitely stay again if we return to Maui!
Jan’s home is beautiful inside while the view is breathtaking outside. My family and I had a great stay! We didn’t spend much time at condo as we were there for a wedding and exploring but we always look forward to return at night. We were sad that we didn’t have a chance to explore the backyard beach more as it was so beautiful and peaceful. Thank you Jan again for opening your home to us. We appreciated all your helps and hospitality!
So glad all worked out for you and your family. I am sure the wedding was beautiful. Come back again and spend more time exploring now that you got a taste of Maui.
Happy New Year,
