Our ground floor unit is located in the Melia "M" Cluster, and is among the newest and most private buildings in the Maui Kamaole complex. We recently completed an extensive remodel of our condominium, including - new tile floors throughout; new tiled, walk-in showers; new cabinets/vanities in the kitchen and bathrooms; new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen; new, much quieter split air conditioning systems in the living room and bedroom, upgraded lighting throughout, new kitchen and bathroom plumbing hardware, etc.
Our unit boasts a spacious lanai off the living room, as well as a private courtyard in the rear, off the bedroom. Since this unit was among the last constructed, the architect incorporated many improvements in the design of this cluster. Thus, the condo makes better use of the same amount of space compared to the condos constructed in the earlier years.
Our unit has a beautiful garden view. Unlike some other units in the Maui Kamaole complex overlooking South Kihei Road, we do not have the corresponding traffic noise (e.g., trucks rolling down the road or to the small boat harbor at 6 AM). You are also close to the upper pool area, but not so close as to be burdened with any noise. Likewise, you do not have to contend with a noisy parking lot, as some units directly overlook the parking lot.
We are just a short five minute walk to Maui Kamaole III Park and Beach. This beach is one of the best kept secrets on the island. The "Locals" love the park and beach. Each evening you will find them there to watch the sunset with their family and friends. When we're on the island, we make the short walk to the park to watch the sunset, adult beverages in hand.
We are also less than a ten minute walk to Keawakapu Beach, one of the nicest beaches on the island. When we are on the island, we visit Keawakapu almost every day.
Our family visits Maui several times each year to check on the unit and to ensure that the unit is well stocked and in top-working order. Since we live in our unit at least four months per year, we ensure that appliances and gadgets work.
We are aware of many condominiums poorly outfitted - for example, televisions that should have been recycled years ago, one pot for cooking, two coffee cups, five forks, phones that don't work, etc. The list could go on. Some owners never stay in their units and are only interested in maximizing revenue with minimal investment in their unit. This is a classic case of buyer beware when selecting a condo to spend your hard earned vacation dollars and vacation time.
The Living Room Smart HDTV is enabled to play Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and Amazon. Remember, we live in our condo for several months per year. In addition to the big screen HDTV, we provide free, wireless internet access within the condo and free long distance telephone access to the mainland and Canada. We have a full lineup of channels, including premium channels, from the local cable provider. Since Hawaii is two or three hours behind the West Coast, many of those live shows will broadcast several hours earlier than normal on the mainland. We also provide a Blu-ray DVD player if you want to watch your favorite movie.
We recently added a new, plush, pillow-top king size bed in the master bedroom. You will enjoy a great night's sleep.
We comply with the state of Hawaii in collecting and paying taxes. Our GET License and TAT Certificate ID numbers are GE (TA)-214-427-6480-01, respectively. We have posted copies of these documents together with our on-island representative contact information in our condominium and will provide that information to you prior to your arrival.
Please note that the Hawaii state legislature recently increased the amount of tax we are to collect and remit beginning on January 1, 2019. The new tax rate will be 14.66 percent, an increase from 13.62 percent. This is not currently reflected in our quotes for 2019, owing to limitations in VRBO's software.
In the very rare event that a guest has an issue, our contact person will handle any problems. Alternatively, you can contact us by phone, text message or email for a prompt response.
This is a non-smoking condominium. Maui Kamaole is a non-smoking complex. If you are a smoker, you are advised to seek accommodations elsewhere.
