Before you set off for a fun family day, enjoy a tropical breakfast on your lanai with a lush garden below, blue ocean in the distance, and singing birds in the background. After a day of adventuring around the island or relaxing at a special beach or the tropical pool 1 minute from your condo, retreat to J205. Sooth your senses with a glass of wine and a beautiful island sunset from your lanai. End the day with an easy and relaxed dinner of grilled island steak or chicken or fresh fish; your bbq grill is only 5 steps away from the condo. Savor your delicious dinner out on the lanai with a complementary island breeze, stars overhead, and your festive lanai lights turned on. ..... Another special and perfect day as you take your deserved break from a busy life, you can depend on J205 to be your home-base of comfort.

Our guests share their experience most succinctly …… “Your condo is so spacious and comfortable. The large lanai with beautiful views of the grounds and ocean and magnificent sunsets made for a relaxing experience. Waking each morning to the sunrise at Haleakala shining through our bedroom windows was a great way to start each day.” Cathy, Tim, Maggie, Jill, and Jakob, Snohomish, WA. “Your Maui home is spectacular! The spacious rooms, the “technology,” the 3 lanais, the incredibly equipped kitchen, the boogie boards, portable picnic basket, & beautiful surrounds inside and out! As I am writing this on my last day here, the sun is rising on one side of the lanai and the full moon is setting on the other with a beautiful ocean view in the distance – how can you top that!” – John, Wendy, Meghan, Ben, and Liz, Chagrin Falls, OH “We have fallen in love with the condo and its location. We love the sound of the birds in the morning and during the day, and the quiet nights on the lanai. We enjoyed breakfast each day and had several dinners on the lanai. The dinners were especially nice with the candle light that John provided with the rope lights. Having a glass of wine in the evening watching the sunset is just a little piece of heaven.” – Harry and Margie, Cranberry Township, PA. “Your wonderful home away from home exceeded our expectations! Thank you for maintaining a truthful website. The view will remain in our hearts & memories always. The fragrance of the evening blooms is one of the best experiences as we enjoyed the moon & stars every evening & the lush gardens during the days. Mahalo!” Dorothy (Todley), Burnaby, BC. “Your housekeeper brought us a beautiful bouquet of flowers from her garden! The condo looks great and is spotless. Love the new recliner in the living room and the flat screen in the bedroom and the new stove in the kitchen, you guys truly take care of this place and it shows, explains why you have so many repeat clients. Well its 3:30 so off to the beach, we already hit Safeway on the way in and loaded up with groceries, nothing left to do now except let the beer get cold!” – Chris, Kathleen, Asha, and Naia, N. Vancouver, BC

We care about our guests and we want your Maui experience to be special! J205 welcomes you, the perceptive, quality-oriented guest, and our valued partner, to your relaxing retreat with much Aloha.

About Gregg Steuart

Gregg and Connie have been coming to Maui Kamaole since 1993, visiting and always hoping to eventually owning a condo in the complex. They held out hoping a unit would become available in the Jassmine (J) complex, which is centrally located in the complex with ocean views, but up high enough on the hill to enjoy wonderful ocean breezes and peaceful serentity. Although we’ve traveled all over, we still find the beauty and magic of Maui unparalleled. Maui is both adventure and sanctuary, exotic yet relaxing, exciting yet peaceful, magical and enduring. J205 is very special and we invite all our guests to share it with us and be our attentive partners in keeping J205 nice and comfortable and a gift for all who stay here.

Gregg Steuart purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gregg Steuart chose Kihei

Maui Kamaole is indisputably the most beautiful property in South Kihei with wonderfully kept sweeping lawns, surrounded by lovely tropical setting (no less than 70 species of plants). It is low density, low rise, and uncrowded; a third of the property is lived in year-long by owners, a third lived in partially by owners, and only a third of it is rented out exclusively year long; the owners who live there all year-round keep a dedicated eye on things and everyone is committed to keeping up the quality of the complex. It is also close to the boat ramp for any fun excursion, within walking distance to some of the best beaches in South Maui for swimming, snorkeling, as well as a wide variety of restaurants and shops and also great walks and jogging and world class golfing to the immediate south in Wailea. It is simply where we love to live ourselves ....

What makes this condo unique

There are many benefits to staying at J205 for our guests, all of which do not incur a premium in rate and all of which we also love and enjoy ourselves when we are at the condo:

- unquestionable value in having an ocean view from your own lanai

- unquestionable value in having a spacious condo (only 25% of all two bedroom condos at Maui Kamaole are of this size or larger)

- unquestionable value in having a much newer condo

- unquestionable value in dealing with owners who care about their guests and care about refreshing and upgrading the condo based on the needs and comforts of the guests, so the condo is always kept nice (this can easily be ascertained by reading through the complete set of Guest Comments)

- unquestionable value in staying at a better-managed condo, with a team of the best people on island who help to make your stay a great one

- unquestionable value for staying at the nicest and one of the very few low-density complexes in South Maui with manicured lawns and lush tropical gardens (no less than 70 species of plants) and pools and Jacuzzis, grills, and a tennis court

- unquestionable value in the location and easy access to some of the best beaches, boat ramp for excursions, shopping, dinning, jogging, walking, golfing, entertainment, and more

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Wen-Lin,

We just arrived home from Maui last night. Had a great trip with mostly good weather. We really enjoyed your condo- it is so clean and comfortable. I hope we can stay with you again someday.

Great condo! Beautiful surroundings, but complex was not as family friendly as past visits

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Gregg's condo at Maui Kamaole. The condo was spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed. The location is wonderful, right across the road from our favorite beach. We stayed with our 12 year old son, my husband, myself and 6 year old twin grandsons. The fold out futon was perfect for the twins and we never felt cramped or crowded. Gregg was wonderful to work with, communicated well and answered any questions we had very promptly.

That being said, I would like to explain why I only gave 4 stars instead of 5. This is our third time staying at the Maui Kamaole. In the past it has been super family friendly, fun and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. However, on this stay, that was not the case. On our first trip to the upper pool (our favorite), we took our son and grandsons. Within five minutes, my husband was confronted by another guest telling him they were no "loud noises" allowed. The "loud noises" were our grandsons saying things like "grandpa, watch me!" They were not being particularly loud, just excited and happy. On another visit, a rainy afternoon when we decided to skip the beach, we arrived to find one of the managers scolding another group of kids (older, probably 10-14) for being too loud, telling them someone had called the front office and complained. During this same trip to the pool, a guest who wanted to lap swim told us the complex was more a "retirement community" a fact that has never been mentioned in the past. We offered to stay to one side of the pool so he could swim, but he declined and walked off. We never felt like we could really relax during our visits to the pool and were constantly "shushing" our grandsons, which took away from the experience. Another family told us their 4 year old child was chastised by a guest for jumping in the pool and splashing her while sunbathing right next to the pool. This was very disappointing to us and so different from our past visits to Maui Kamaole. Fortunately, we do love the beach, and spent most of our time there.

This is in no way a reflection on our accommodations. As I stated earlier, the condo was stellar, but I think when we return to Maui in two years, we will search out a more family friendly environment, which is sad, because we love the location so. I highly recommend to couples or families with older children, ones who do not squeal with delight and/or joy while swimming in the pools.

Owner's Response: We apologized to our guest and spoke to the property manager about the incident. We were assured by our property manager that Maui Kamaole is not and never will be turned into a retirement community. Our property manager stated that Maui Kamaole is a kid friendly and a family orientated community.

Maui Kamaole J205

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the condo in Feb, 2017. Gregg, the owner, was extremely nice and considerate. Several phone calls which were exchanged, prior to our arrival, made me comfortable with renting from him and answered questions that I had. The condo was very clean and spacious. I would rent from him again!

The condo was really nice and clean and it was very spacious.

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

we have rented many units in Maui Kamaole including owning a unit ourselves and this is the best unit we have stayed in. The unit is large, two bedroom in a central location on the property. The place is very clean, new TV's ,entertainment system and a lot more goodies. Plenty of beach equipment and the nice thing is all the equipment is usable. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of glasses, cutlery and dishes, you do not need to wash between meals because you ran out of an item. They supply bathroom essentials along with laundry soap for a long stay. The owners have definitely looked after this unit and take pride doing it. We will be back.

Great property and property owner

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in an excellent location,quiet and very clean and comfortable,We stayed for 4 days and on the last day we left for the beach and forgot the binoculars for whale watching and went back for them to find out the door lock broke and we were unable to get in,so we called the on island contact and within 30 minutes we were off to the beach and came back later to a fixed door lock,Now that is Service!

The owner has a very nice clean and well equipped condo,great kitchen and plenty of beach toys,chairs,umbrella and coolers. When staying at J205 all you need to bring is food a swim suit and sunscreen. Our next trip back to the island we will be staying at J205

Four time repeat visitor

  • 5 of 5

We love This unit and won't consider staying any place else. This last trip included my husband, myself, our daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters ages 4 and 1. The condo is the perfect unit for us. Its central location (we love Kihei), the beautiful grounds, the lovely decor, and well stocked beach equipment all make the stay a true paradise experience. The Steuarts have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and memorable. We highly recommend This condo for your Maui vacation.
