About the property

Koa resort condo community has 5 tropical landscaped acres with 5 low rise buildings surrounding an Olympic sized pool. Ground floor unit completely remodeled with all the comforts of home. Private entrance, a private lanai with a view straight to the pool makes this a quiet, relaxing place to explore all Maui has to offer. You never will feel like your crowded here. 54 units share all the grounds and amenities, so you may have the pool to yourself. It is all about comfort and convenience. Buy too much at the farmers market? Use the golf cart to drive your treasures from the parking lot to the unit. Let the kids play tennis or ping-pong while you grill the fresh fish on the grill at the cabana complete with free wi-fi as well so the kids can connect with games and you can down load e-mail while dinner cooks. Let the trade winds gentle breezes lull you to sleep in your choice of King, Queen or one of the two twin beds. Soak those tired muscles from the day of ocean kayaking in the hot tub while the kids play in the heated pool, while the plumeria blooms pinwheel past you. Or walk across the street to view sunset just a minute away. You can experience a vacation of a lifetime here. Relax, heal, regroup and renew!

About Debbie

Debbie is an event videography who produces in conjunction with capturing moments video iphone travel applications for the islands. In the itunes store you will find her app “Virtual Maui Guide” a complete travel book on your phone. Debbie and her husband Jeff, lived here at Koa for 5 years. Betty Ann, my cousin that enjoyed visiting us to vacation for the last 5 years, decided to invest in Koa resort to retire in some day. So sit back and relax with your own “insider local” tour guide to the islands. We really enjoy seeing the island through new eyes when you visit. This condo has been totally remodeled by us to fit all your needs on vacation. Our condo home in sunny Kihei and is the perfect place to call home while you explore!

Debbie purchased this condo in 2002

Why Debbie chose South Maui

Kihei is centrally located to the island. If it is raining in Kihei, it is raining all over the island. Very dry area of the island, it is perfect for all water sports. My husband, Jeff is a scuba diver great dive locations here close as well as great places for me to kayak out to watch whales! Not to mention the best beaches on Maui!

What makes this condo unique

Love the mix of residents, from young and old alike. Some retired living their dream retirement, some working on the island, some coming to enjoy the island for the first time, some coming to marry or honeymoon. The property is build with a pool that never gets crowded. Property promotes activities with two tennis courts and cabana for parties or just grilling with the family. Shuffleboard is a family favorite around the hot tub and pool area. Always something to do with plenty of wide-open space so you never feel like you are in a condo complex. Central parking lot means no one drives up to your door. Beautiful winding tropical walk ways back to the buildings, with so many plumeria trees and other Hawaiian tropical’s blooming year round, scent the breezes as you make your way back to your private unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The following was sent February by way of a text message to my iphone!

"Just wanted to say the condo is fabulous!! Beautifully done...Thank you for a such a wonderful place to stay...."

The following message was left in our condo upon their departure:

"Paradise found!"

We stayed here for two weeks in February and loved it! Debbie went above & beyond to make sure we had everything we needed/wanted for a wonderful stay. The condo is beautifully decorated. The attention to detail is amazing. The pride of ownership shows!! We saw several other condo's in the complex while we were here, and this was far the nicest one. Location is great as well. Hopefully we'll be back soon...Mahalo Debbie!!!

Make it six stars!

  • 5 of 5

I really don't want to give a great review so the property will remain my little secret, but alas, I must. The accommodations were wonderful. Steps to the pool. Less than a five minute walk to the beach. The resort is quiet and the full time residents will let you know if it gets too loud. Convenient location to go to west Maui, Haleakala, Hana and Weiela. Plenty to see, do and eat in Kihei. The unit is well stocked for preparing meals. Spacious side-by-side stainless steel refrigerator and freezer. Book today, unless I want to return on those dates.

Lovely weeklong stay during kids' spring break

  • 5 of 5

Our family came for a week and this place had all we needed and more! Great location - less than a mile from Safeway and plenty of shops/restaurants. Tasteful, fun decor suitable for families with kids. Wonderful large pool - our children (ages 9 and 11) went swimming almost every night. The house is chock full of practical items - cooler, ice packs, boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, picnic mats and more. Debbie (host) is friendly and responsive with great trip/restaurant suggestions for value-minded travelers. We'd definitely come again!

Amazing accommodations with friendly owners who really want you to have a good time

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing!! Had everything we needed and more. It was such a cute place that really made you feel at home. Very clean, organized and equipped with whatever you needed. My kids loved the pool and the comfy beds. Deb was amazing to deal with. She gave us lots of awesome advice on what to do, see and eat. She really cares about people and takes a lot of pride in her property. The people at Koa resort are so laid back and chill. They have rules and expect you to follow them but also trust in people's judgement which makes you feel at home. My only complaint is that me and my husband forgot to leave the cleaning lady a tip!! We both thought the other person was going to do it and we left her nothing. She was amazing at her job. Had the place spotless when we arrived and had fancy personal touches when we arrived. We feel bad that we forgot her tip. This place is better than anything we could have imagined and we will hopefully return one day when our Canadian dollar gets a bit better. Thanks Deb for your amazing hospitality. You really made our time in Maui amazing!!

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your lovely condo! It was so well equipped with everything we needed. Debbie has truly thought of everything you might need. The kitchen was perfect for making breakfasts and lunches, and we took advantage of the 2 BBQ's for cooking dinner. The lanai was large and private, and gave us the feeling we were sitting in a tropical garden. Our only complaint was road noise from South Kihei Road. If the windows were open at night, we were awakened early with commuters. But other than that we were very happy with "Eat, Drink and Be Maui!"

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear of your complaint. Let me see if I can explain as sounds are a very local part of living on island. Maui is an early-morning place. While Living in Kihei I was always amazed at how alive everything becomes quickly in the morning. All ocean activities begin at sun rise, when the ocean and wind is at its calmest. Things wind down early as well with only a few places that remain open late. I would suggest if you like less activity on Maui to stay off the beaten path in Hana. If you want a really quiet island off grid stay on the Big Island or a sleepy rainy place tucked in on The island of Kauai. But then you might also be awakened by the wild Roosters or peacocks! I have also been jolted awake by the little franklyn hens screams or noisy mynah birds. They can be much noisier than traffic! Something I am afraid , can't be helped unless you shut windows and run the A/C. Please keep these things in mind next time you would like to stay up late and sleep in. Maui is an early morning place. One of our favorite breakfast spots Kihei caffe opens 5 am! Embrace your morning person side and get out there and enjoy.
