About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Resort

Welcome to Maui Kamaole (MK). This modern, low-rise, low-density complex consists of 13 two story units spread over 23 beautifully landscaped acres and is considered to be one of Maui’s premier condominium resorts. It is the highest rated condo in Kihei in the 2014 AAA Tour Guide, a 3 Diamond rating. The resort is meticulously maintained.

It has 2 pools/2Jacuzzis, 2 tennis courts and many BBQ areas. All of the first floor units are one BR units (except a few which have converted a den to a 2nd BR) and all of the second floor units like ours have 2 BR’s. Most of the 2 BR units (114 of 158 = 72%) are ~1052 sq ft of living space with the remainder a little over 1200 sq ft. The larger units also have significantly (~20%) larger Lanais. Ours is one of the 1200+ sq ft units. The 20% larger units provide a more comfortable stay. If a listing doesn’t mention its size, it is probably a smaller unit.

The location of Maui Kamaole in sunny south Kihei is ideal. It is an upscale property that bridges the casual charm of Kihei and the elegance of the many 5* resorts in Wailea just two blocks away. It is close to the restaurants, shops and the championship golf courses of Wailea and Makena. The spectacular Wailea Ocean Walking Trail is a short walk south. Across the street is one of Maui’s finest beaches, Kamaole Beach Park III, with picnic areas and a beautiful sandy beach where you can swim, snorkel, boogie board, surf or just relax in the sun or under one of the many shade trees. Lots of turtles frequent the waters around this beach. Kahului Airport is only 25 minutes away. The resort offers an on-site check-in agent with concierge services with brochures of activities and restaurants.

Our Unit

When we purchased this non-smoking unit in mid-November of 2009, it was totally empty, allowing us to designer decorate and furnish it with all new items. We completed furnishing the unit in May 2010 and performed additional upgrades in June 2011, May 2012, Aug 2012, Dec 2012, Nov 2013, June 2014 and Oct 2014. This year in addition to replenishing items having minor wear and touching up the paint and carpet cleaning several times we added a HDTV DVR so you can now record your favorite programs and added a subscription to a lot of full HDTV programs. Most units only have analog channels even if they say they have a HDTV. In early August 2012 we also upgraded our clothes washer and drier. Previously, ours like most units come with a small combo washer drier which had only a 1.5 cu. ft washer and a 2.5 cu. ft. drier. We have just added a new Samsung stackable front load washer and drier which have 3.5 and 7.3 cu ft capacity which lets you spend less of your vacation time doing laundry. In Dec 2012 we got a new 55 in Panasonic HDTV for the great room and put a 52 in Sharp HDTV to the master BR and a 37 in HDTV to the other master BR. Our smallest TV is now larger than most units big TV. In looking at all the other 2 BR units on vrbo, I found no other unit with larger than a 44 in TV. In June 2013 we again totally refreshed the unit and added a new larger Stainless Steel Refrigerator and added even more sports equipment. In Oct & Nov of 2013, June 2014 and Oct 2014 we replaced the water heater, installed a new SS Dishwasher, added a new kitchen faucet and did numerous preventative maintenance upgrades.

Unlike most MK units built in the late ‘80s, this unit was completed in 2002, lived in only 2 months per year until Jan 2010. Many units say that they have been remodeled, most don’t say when! This unit has 2 Master Bedroom Suites and has been newly painted, carpeted and designer furnished and appointed with all the comforts of home. It is in a quiet location with very convenient parking. It has three private lanais. The main lanai, with a large retractable motorized awning (less than 30% of the 2BR units have this), provides a view of the lovely gardens, the ocean to the west and spectacular sunsets. The unit is close to the nicer of the two pools (the tropical pool), and close to the two tennis courts and it is away from the noise of the very busy Kihei Road.

The great room is open, spacious and bright. It includes living room, dining area and kitchen. Features that set our unit apart from most other MK units include:

· Totally refurbished in 2010 including new carpeting, all new Black Label Beautyrest beds, new bedding and all new furniture and kitchenware, with numerous upgrades since then.

· The main spacious private lanai has a motorized 8 x 18 ft retractable awning to allow comfortable seating on even the hottest days. It has a patio table that will seat 6 and a comfortable chaise lounge.

· Three 1080P LCD HDTV’s including a 55 in Panasonic in the great room, a 52” Sharp in one master BR and a 37” in the downstairs master BR, and a third 37 in HDTV in the second master bedroom. Unlike most units which have at most basic analog tv channels ( less than 70) with at most 7 HD channels with no real channel guide, we have just added a new Digital Video Recorder (DVR) recorder and over 300 channels of TV, including 35+ in full HD. Most condos provide analog service only (Why have HDTV with no HD channels)? With the DVR you can also record your favorite shows while you are out at the beach or doing other activities.

· A Sony PlayStation 3 with several games and over 125 stored movies (most in HD) and a BluRay HD DVD player

· An additional Sony DVD player with an additional library of 65+ movies on DVD. Includes whale watching DVD and a CD for car use which narrates the Road to Hana.

· High speed secure wireless internet (WiFi) as well as an Ethernet port.

· Two stereo's (one with IPod/IPhone docking station) and one with an MP3 player input with a large library of CDs (35+), including a good Hawaiian music library.

· A safe to secure your valuables

· A supply of books, guidebooks, jigsaw puzzles and games.

. 2 porta-cribs, baby swing, baby bath tub and two Booster chairs for young children, with trays to make them like a high chair.

· Most MK units have window type A/C units that are noisy. Our BR’s are cooled by a modern split A/C unit where the noisy compressor and condenser are outside, making for a much quieter system.

· Our sports utility closet is truly exceptional, greatly exceeding most if not all other condos. We have provided 6+ beach towels, 14+ sets of snorkels/masks/fins, 3+ boogie boards, 6 sets of various size beach shoes, 4 noodles, 5 quality beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas + 1 beach tent, lots of beach toys for kids & toddlers, 5 tennis and 3 badminton rackets, 4 beach SmashBall racquets, Frisbees, 3 different size ice chests and a full size backpack for serious hikers.

· There is a wireless telephone/answering machine with free local and long distance service (US, Canada and Mexico).

The fully equipped kitchen has a coffeemaker, blender, mixer, waffle iron, Wok, toaster oven and rice maker as well as all new dinnerware, glasses, pots/pans and utensils. Glasses includes sets for white wine, red wine, champagne, martinis and Mai Tai's.

The dining set seats 6+ and there is also a large 6 person table for dining on the lanai while you are watching the great sunsets. Of course there are also amenities such as a hair dryer, washer/dryer, iron and ironing board, etc.

The upstairs Master Suite is beautifully appointed with a King-size bed, 52 ”flat screen HDTV with remote control and DVD player, and private shaded atrium. In Oct 2014 we added a door to the upstairs MBR to make in easier to keep cool. The bathroom has a spacious shower and twin sinks. The main level Master Suite has 2 twin beds, which can be converted to a king bed, if you prefer, and a 37 in HDTV. Both bedrooms have black out drapes which allow you to sleep in if you want, most condos have just sheer drapes. The bathroom has a tub/shower and the stacked washer/dryer. A queen size sofa sleeper, inflatable queen bed, a thick twin sleeping mat and two portacribs are also provided. ALL THE BEDS ARE NEW AND COMFORTABLE!! Bedding and linens are luxurious and comfortable.

We have tried to think of everything to make your stay (and ours) comfortable, and memorable. As the locals say, “Maui no ka oi” or Maui is the best!

In comparing our unit to others here are some of the big differences:

o 70+% of the 2 BR units are ~20% smaller

o Less than 30% have a retractable awning to keep the patio cool

o We have a dining table that sits 6 inside and another 6 seater on the patio. Most have tables that only sit 4

o All of our furnishings are upscale and really nice, not 'Rental Unit' quality. Look closely at our photos vs those of other units.

o We provide real glassware with glasses for red & white wine, champagne, martini's etc. All kitchen utensils and silverware are of high quality with knives which are kept sharp

o We have a full size washer and dryer, 3X the capacity of other units, making doing wash much faster

o We have 3 HDTV's (55, 52 and 37 inch) making for more pleasant viewing. The 55 in is set up to allow you to preview all your photos and is connected to the internet and has a Digital Video Recorder to allow you to record shows and watch them later. Each TV has a DVD player (2 are BluRay)

o We have a large library (200+) of kid and adult movies, many in HD

o We have a large music library featuring Hawaiian music

o We have a Playstation 3 to play games and BlueRay DVD's

o We have a huge collection of snorkel gear, boogie boards, ice chests, beach toys, tennis racquets, etc to help you enjoy your stay with no additional cost

o We have lots of infant and toddler items like a 2 portable cribs, baby swing, 2 high chairs, kids toys, kids movies, etc

o Everything is tastefully designed and decorated

o Everything is kept new, fresh and extremely clean

o Multiple sleeping options

o All of our reviews are 5* and we have never had a complaint

About Walt Goede

About us

We are retired seniors who travel a lot. We enjoy an active lifestyle of snorkeling, biking, skiing, kayaking, hiking, dancing and playing bridge. Maui and Maui Kamaole in particular provides us easy access to all of the things we like most and allows us to do most of these things in a beautiful relaxing environment. We try to spend at least 3 months a year in our unit. I also enjoy doing home repairs and upgrades and at each of our 2+ visits per year we always add something and repaint the unit where needed, and do a super clean of the unit. If you read our reviews you will see that everyone who has stayed here says this is the best equipped, best maintained and cleanest unit they have ever stayed in. We both take pleasure in making your vacation a most memorable experience. For our renters I also provide our own 100+ page list of Recommended Things To Do in Maui with emphasis on the local area. This is a comprehensive guide that contains our personnel recommendations as well as compiles the recommendations of the many guide books we provide in our condo. It not only tells you who the best providers are for each activity but also tells you how to get the best price for activities and real discounts (not by attending time share presentations). Nearly all of our past renters single this guide out as having been extremely useful to them in planning their holidays without the need to buy and read several guide books.

Walt Goede purchased this condo in 2009

Why Walt Goede chose Kihei

Before we puchased here, we visited all the Hawaiin islands frequently. When we came to Maui we always stayed on the west shore near Kaanapali, Kapalua or Napili, which are all very nice. Then in Sept 2009 we decided to try the south part of Maui. What a difference. This area has by far the best weather on the island (approx 10 inches per year, whereas just 15 miles from here they get 400 inches per year). It is so dry here they don't even have a weather station nearby, so often if you type in Kihei to your weather forecast web site it will say it is raining, but these forecasts are normally wrong. They are giving you the forecast from about 15 miles north of here where thet get considerably more rain, as does the west shore. We visit the Hawaiian Islands frequently. In the sunny South Kihei/Wailea area we especially enjoy the mild climate, the gentle warm trade winds, the stunning sunsets and the beautiful sandy beaches with some of the best snorkeling in the world. Championship golf courses, great shopping and restaurants are all nearby. We love the natural beauty of the islands and we want to share it with our family and friends. We have stayed in many locations and found that Kihei’s great weather and location is the best. Many readers have rated Maui Kamaole one of the best places to stay in all of Maui. It is also one of, if not the lowest density condo units on Maui. The beautiful landscaping and maintenance done on this property makes it truly unique. But remember, each Maui Kamaole unit is individualy owned and maintained so they are all furnished and maintained differently. If you read our reviews or this vrbo site, you will see that EVERYONE who has stayed here has given us their highest marks. Not one neagtive comment ever. You can find less expensive places but I'm confident you won't find a nicer or better maintained unit. Maui Kamaole has the highest condo association dues in Kihei, but once you visit it you will see why. It is kept beautiful.

What makes this condo unique

Our non-smoking, spacious, 2nd floor unit at Maui Kamaole has a lovely balcony where we enjoy the view of the ocean to the west and beautiful sunsets. Note that ours is in the newest building. Most (7 of the 13 buildings in this complex) were built in 1988-1990, the remaining units were built about 10 yrs later and are more modern. Ours was completed in 2002 and only occupied about 8 weeks per year thru Nov 2009. What we liked was the large size of this unit (1214 sq ft interior plus 265 sq ft of Lanai), making for a spacious comfortable stay. Over 70% of the other 2BR units at Maui Kamaole are over 20% smaller than ours. The nicer of the two pools (the tropical waterfall pool and jacuzzi) and tennis courts are just a few steps away, as is the parking and a barbecue. It is a short walk across the road to the beautiful shaded sandy beach and snorkeling spots. The property is beautifully landscaped and well maintained. We like the townhome design that allows us to park close to our front door. When we purchased our unit in Nov 2009 it was totally empty. Beginning in Dec 2009 and ending in late Aug 2010, we have completely refurnished and decorated. We also just completed a thorough update and cleaning in Oct 2014, where we had the carpet cleaned, serviced all the A/C's and electronics, new sheets, repainted walls where needed and touched up all scuff marks, and generally did a major cleaning, It is like new: new paint, new carpet, new designer furniture, new beds, new linens, ALL NEW!! We also employ an excellent housekeeper who keeps the unit spotless. If you want a luxury unit, not furnished like a typical rental unit, this is the place. It is also very quiet. However, if you are looking for a place to throw a party with lots of friends, please go elsewhere.

Our sports closet is especially nice. We have quality equipment and our snorkeling gear will fit just about everyone. You probably will not need to rent any water equipment. Lots of kids stuff

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your lovely condo. Much better equipped, much better quality items for inside and out than other condos in the complex. Your attention to detail was so appreciated. The kids were comfortable right away and slept well making for happy parents.We love Maui and hope to return. As always, our time here is way too short.

Great place to stay in South Kihei

  • 5 of 5

In our view, this was definitely a 5-star place. Everything about the condo met or exceeded our expectations. In addition to the condo itself, the grounds, landscaping and two pools of the Maui Kamaole complex were beautiful and well maintained. The listing description and photos were entirely accurate and quite informative.

The condo was very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with everything one might need for cooking (probably the best of all condos we've rented in the South Kihei area) and it was great to have items like paper towels, hand soap and new sponges on hand so that we didn't have to go out and buy those things on the first day we were there.

All of the beds were comfortable and had high quality bedding on them.

Barbecue grills were close by and the upper pool was just a couple of minutes walk away.

The quality and variety of beach and pool gear the condo had available for guests was impressive.

We would highly recommend this condo to all of our friends and relatives.

The owners were always quick to get back to us from our initial inquiries to questions we had during our stay. The notes they provided for guests covering everything from hiking trails to restaurants to zip lines were informative and well appreciated.

Thanks, Walt and Carol, for letting us stay at your great condo. Hopefully, we'll be back in the future.

Better than Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We don't travel to Hawaii often, but when we do, we appreciate a beautiful, well-appointed, conveniently located condo. Our experiences have typically been good, but have found property descriptions and photos are not always accurate... until now. My husband and I, along with my sister and her husband, just returned from a 10 day stay in Walt and Carol's condo. We could not have been more pleased with their condo. Maui Kamaole is an amazingly beautiful condo complex and their condo was just as described in words and photos... just beautiful. You will lack for nothing, from very comfortable beds and quality linens to kitchen appliances and dishes and utensils, to beach chairs, snorkel and tennis gear and beach towels and umbrellas... to their location just minutes from the best beaches and restaurants. Walt and Carol also provide a wealth of information prior to your trip and in their condo. I hope that we will always be able to schedule our trips to Maui in the future around the availability of Walt and Carol's condo. Mahalo, Walt and Carol, for sharing your home away from home with us and making our 2017 trip to Maui our best yet!

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has just returned from spending two wonderful weeks in Walt and Carol's condo and it is truly a Home away from Home. It is not your typical condo rental. From the personal touches throughout, the massive amount of beach gear, quality bedding etc. I could go on. The amount of information provided by Walt is outstanding. It is super quiet, yet close to the top pool and within walking distance of great beaches and restaurants. We would highly recommend, Cafe O'lei, Fabiani's in Wailea, Coconuts Fish Cafe, (opening a second location above the Whalers General Store just a few blocks away) the best fish tacos in Maui! Thank you once again Walt and Carol for sharing your lovely piece of paradise with us.

This unit is as advertised down to the last set of snorkel gear.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I waited 20 years to return to Maui since we last visited for our honeymoon, and we came with three boys in tow (ages 11, 12 and 14). We could not be happier with our decision to choose Walt and Carol's unit. The location is exactly where we wanted to be which is across the street from the beach (away from the road, but close enough to walk), a short walk from large resorts as well as from the shops and restaurants in Kihei.

The unit itself was impeccably maintained with many personal touches, and it was loaded with all the items we would have otherwise had to pack for a beach vacation - beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, water shoes, snorkeling gear, toys, coolers, etc. That really saved us from having to bring anything but our swimsuits and suntan lotion. In addition, the kitchen had great appliances and all the utensils we needed to make some home-cooked meals, and the washer and dryer were top notch. Finally, there was plenty of room for the five of us to spread out and relax. The door and shutters to the bedroom loft kept that bedroom cool and provided privacy even when someone was downstairs watching one of the TVs. Every item Walt and Carol put in their description of the property and their unit can be taken at face value. They also provided in advance of our arrival a lengthy self-made guide of all the places they recommend which we heavily leveraged throughout our trip.

The weather was fantastic the entire week, and we will always remember where we were when the Cleveland streak of sports futility came to an end. Go Cavs!!! If I only knew over the last 45 years that I just had to be in Maui for one of our teams to win a championship! The boys are already asking if we need to go back in October since the Tribe is playing some good baseball right now.

We're hoping it doesn't take us 20 more years to get back, but even then, I know where we will be staying. Mahalo Walt and Carol for having such a great place and for making our trip hassle free!

Perfect stay for our little family !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Maui Kamaole before (3 times) and knew we would like the area as the location is very convenient, with lots of little cute restaurants, the beaches are amazing, the complex itself has two pools (we prefer the tropical one with hot tub as our little one can learn to swim there). But when we discovered Walter and Carol's unit, it was beyond our wildest dream. This unit is truly bigger than the other ones we stayed at, it is well stocked with pool and beach gear, wonderfully quiet, the deco is superb, plenty of space for our family of 4. We had a blast there. Walter is a very meticulous and resourceful guest and answered our many questions with interest and knowledge. The library at the unit is a little jewel with lots of very good books and travel guides, many movies and great music too is provided by the owners. Walter and Carol know Maui, love it and it shows! Kihei is a wonderful, sunny area to discover. We saw turtles munching on seaweeds from Kamaole beaches in the morning, explored the Macau mountainous area in the afternoon and did some stargazing on the wide lanai at the unit. Kihei is that central. Don't miss the Ocean Center, the Hana Road, or a snorkeling and dolphins cruise. We recommend Pacific Whale Foundation (especially their new catamaran Ocean Spirit- wow) as we had been snorkeling and sightseeing with them for over 10 years now and they are great and knowledgeable. Food wise, we highly recommend the MonkeyPod as it is close by (Wailea, by car), it is affordable, they cook with local food, there is a lot of space, nice deco and if you like sustainable food, this is the place to be. Sophisticated but yet accessible even for families. You can also book, 15 minutes prior online, How about that? The food is AMAZINGLY good and drinks are featuring local brewers. We thank you again Walter and Carol for all the tips and info shared on Maui and for your wonderful unit. It is truly a wonderful gem !

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you return again soon. We are glad you liked our suggestion about trying the PWF Whale trip even thought we hadn't tried it yet we had heard good things about it. Since your stay we have been out on this boat twice in Dec 2015 and we really liked it as well.

We rented this unit, as well as the adjacent unit for a family get together. We had a great time. This unit is in a great location and is furnished, way beyond what one would expect in a rental. It feels like you are in someone's home. We enjoyed the early mornings, watching the stars and hearing the birds awaken with the first rays of sun. The pool was awesome for the kids and the location near Kamaole 3 beach is ideal. This was our second time staying at this unit and I would like to thank the owners. The immaculately oufitted unit, along with the beautiful gardens, pools, and nearby beaches, helped make this a precious lifetime memory.
