The expanded kitchen remodel was recently finished. This remodel stands out from the others at the complex. The old style half wall in the kitchen was removed to allow full view of the ocean from the entire kitchen while cooking and sitting at the counter bar. This opens up the whole modern kitchen and living area. The remodel includes new cabinets, appliances, and a amazing granite counter. Custom designed lighting was added to the kitchen, lanai, and bedroom areas to enhance your dining and romantic experience. This condo has it all!

Anniversary vacation in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well appointed with a lovely view of the ocean. Kihei has more windy days than our previous visits to Maui (Lahaina area ), but still beautiful. Once the exterior work on the complex is complete, it will be peaceful and a great place to slow down and enjoy. We walked the beach daily and then into town for some great coffee. Thank you Laurie for having such a great place to stay!

Property in need of maintenance!

  • 2 of 5

This property is in desperate need of maintenance. The outside of the building could use updated to include new entry doors to the units. Our particular unit was quite the disappointment. The living room and dining room furniture was old and in bad condition. The ventilation cover in the living room was covered with dust and rust. The mattress on the bed was so broken down it was difficult to get a good night's sleep. A foam pad had been added but it was also very old, yellow and broken down. The ceiling fan in the bedroom did not work. The drapes in the bedroom were pinned together with a large safety pin and had holes worn through in places. Many of the lights in the unit were either burned out or did not work. The bathroom was extremely small and dated. The overall unit could use a good cleaning and fresh paint. We actually took photographs of some of the issues. The pool area was beautiful!

Owner's Response: I was sad to have received this disappointing review. It is the first review that was not a 5 star review on any of my websites. I do understand that the pull out bed on the couch was broken from the guest prior to this stay. We did not think it would be a problem for this guests stay as it was a couple stay and believed only the king bed would be used. We are returning to Maui in the next week to replace the couch and will certainly address any other issues at the condo. We have been very proud that 60% of our guests are return guests that come back year after year. We have received wonderful feedback from most of our guests currently and over the years. We take pride in keeping the condo in the best condition. Our return trip this time will again make more new upgrades as we do on every stay in Maui

Beautiful view and Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was more than amazing. It was clean and well prepared for us. To look at this view everyday from all angles of the condo was more than I could ask for for a relaxing wonderful experience in Maui.

The condo had everything we needed and was clean and updated. Decor had a tropical theme and made us feel at home in our Maui Paradise.

I would love to come back again and stay at this same condo!!

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at this condo. I did a lot of looking around prior to selecting this unit. Once we got to Maui I saw the other condos I was checking out and this unit is a bargain. So many places that say ocean view or ocean front are across the rather busy street with telephone poles and lines in the way of the view. The view at this unit was great and it's really ocean front and the pictures are exactly what you get. The layout of the unit is great with both the bedroom and living area having balconies and sliding glass doors. The location was great to explore Maui. We couldn't hear any noise from any neighboring units and the complex was usually very quiet after 10. The pool and grounds were maintained on a daily basis. I couldn't use the Wi-Fi but I think that may have been to do with my cell phone dying two weeks later. Would have been helpful to have a TV guide. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook, but with so many great restaurants on Maui, who cooks?

Exactly like you see here

  • 5 of 5

You know how you look at some of these ads and wonder "Does this unit really look as good as these pictures?" Well, this unit looked EXACTLY like these pictures!! We stayed for 11 days and it was perfect for what we were looking for. Very nicely maintained, a FULLY equipped kitchen, and even Wi-Fi that seemed pretty speedy. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone - it doesn't get much better than this for the price.

Booking was smooth and easy, the management company was very helpful, and the entire transaction and process was as easy as can be. Overall, a very happy and positive experience.

Great condo in Kihei!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay for 9 days. The condo was clean and well equipped. The complex including pools and grounds are very well maintained. King size bed was comfortable, laundry was convenient. The only complaint we have is that the couch is not very comfortable. Other than that everything was great!!
