About Jen & Matty
Aloha, Meeting great people and being able to share Maui is a lot of fun for me, I hope you enjoy your stay! A little about me...I grew up in Connecticut but Maui was always calling. I went to school in New Haven, CT. I became an Art Teacher and worked for many years teaching Preschool-8th grade, also as a Scenic Artist in NYC. In that time I would travel back and forth to Maui, making it my second home. Luckily I found myself a guy in CT who was just as obsessed with Maui as I am! We eloped on Wedding Beach, and now I'm the proud mama of Little Jordan. My days are filled with my making sure my sweet baby and my guests are Happy! Mahalo!
Jen & Matty purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Jen & Matty chose Kihei
Kihei Bay Surf kind of chose me! When I was looking at the property it was just a feeling that this was home. It's central to everything Maui has to offer. Just 20 min to the airport. About 30 min to Lahaina, Paia, Upcountry, and just next door to Wailea. North Kihei is a great mix of privacy but still very close to every amenity.
What makes this Condo unique
It's great having the tennis courts, pool, grills and laundry very close onsite. I also love the view of Haleakala from the front door in the morning. The sun rises from behind it, and in the evening it lights up with a purple glow from sunset bouncing off it. I loved walking into this unit and feeling the height of the ceiling seeing straight out to peek-a-boo ocean views. I hope you find the decor clean and airy with a tropical feel.

Great location on the Island
We loved our stay at Jen and Matt’s place. It had a cozy feel with convenient parking. Very clean with all the essentials. Very responsive owners when we had any questions or concerns. Overall great place to stay - cannot wait to come back to the island.
Wonderful place to stay!
This was a charming apartment. It was perfect place to come back to every night after exploring Maui during the day. Great location and centrally located on the island.
Thank you! It was our pleasure to host you and we appreciate meeting great people. Mahalo!
We really enjoyed our stay at Jen and Matt's condo! Jen was super helpful and accomodating prior to our arrival. The ad says king bed however it is only a queen.
Great!, Thank you so much we enjoyed having you.
I double checked my amenities list, just to be sure it was accurate for future guests. Queen bed listed, and memory foam futon....which is so comfortable!
The review prompted me to double check all the amenities listed so that was helpful! And, I will definitely consider purchasing a King bed when I do the next update.
Not great - serious ant and fly problem!!!
Close to beach
Loud and noisy, cars were constantly passing by at all hours on the road just to the back where the balcony is. Loud maintenence crews and their machinery going from as early as 8 AM most days.
No beach view, blocked by a road and trees
Seriously infested with bugs —I mean we had heard about the ants from reviews before heading in there and kept all the dishes and food off of counters and disinfected, but to no avail. By the end of our 12 day stay the bathroom floor, kitchen counter, and base of bed were crawling everywhere with ants. It’s seriously really hard to sleep at night feeling like you have the things crawling all over you, and also waking up with fresh bug bites every morning.
PROSPECTIVE GUESTS, PLEASE READ:
This review is very upsetting to me because it is gross distortion of the truth.
I spoke to Charlie throughout his stay, and he NEVER mentioned any discomfort, dissatisfaction, fear of bugs, or bites. In fact, Jan 8th, Charlie asked me if he could EXTEND his check-out time and STAY in the unit longer to wait for his late flight.
Charlie never contacted the management company to complain or change units.
The following is a report from my excellent cleaning crew, working with me since 5/17.
* cleaners reported a STENCH from the unit upon entering. Smoke and FILTH.
* Guests SMOKED cigars in my NON smoking unit. rules are posted.
half smoked cigars were found on counter, on the floor among garbage. Empty food packaging . ( I have PHOTOS)
* Guests left perishable trash everywhere. 3 LARGE GARBAGE BAGS FULL
were taken out of the unit by my cleaners. This is unheard of.
The counters were dirty and full of food and wrappers.
* Guests did not do laundry, instead went into my inventory and stained brand
brand new linens and blankets that were intended for the next guest.
Yet another house rule disregarded.
* Guests stained all linens on the bed.
My cleaner's response to Charlie's review- "OMG he is trying to get away with the mess he made."
The only "Ants" I have ever had in my unit are the size of a pinhead, and they are extremely common in tropical zones. They like moisture and sugar, so I have only seen these teeny tiny little ants on the counter if I spilled juice, or cut a lime...
NEVER ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE UNIT.
Never anywhere near the bed.
I have NEVER seen a fly in my condo...ever.
I believe that Charlie created a problem in my condo that didn't exist before, and he used previous negative reviews to excuse his bad behavior so that he would not be held accountable.
My photos and description are accurate and I would never misrepresent my condo because that would only lead to disappointment and it's unethical.
* lanai photos show the 2 lane road, the view of the ocean exactly how it is.
* title says "ocean facing" or partial views, while my neighbors say oceanview
and use photos of the beach down the road. I am honest.
In November, My baby slept in a travel crib directly on the floor. No concern of bugs, there was no noise loud enough to keep her from sleeping, and we enjoyed coffee on the back lanai every morning. We talked about how lucky we were to see the pacific ocean.
Very nice condo, great for couples. Good location close to the beach. I would stay there again.
Thank you so much! We look forward to your return.
Perfect Stay, Wonderful Host
We had a perfect week in Maui. The apartment is clean, cozy and fantastically located for those looking for a more self-led exploration of the island, not to mention steps away from beachside sunsets. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals (though it would be nice if it was stocked with essentials like salt/pepper, oil, spices...). Jen was a wonderful, expedient communicator and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.
Great idea, I'll get those essentials for the kitchen.
