About Kim Hembree

My husband Mack and I have visited beautiful Maui many times over the years. Finally, on our 25th wedding anniversary, we realized a long-time dream and purchased our first property in South Maui. We enjoyed hosting our extended family and friends so much, we decided to purchase additional Maui properties to share the aloha with island visitors.

Over the years, we've rented homes and condos all over the island, and experienced everything from nicely outfitted places to those that have seen better days. So we've taken great care to design and decorate our properties to not only meet, but hopefully exceed your expectations.

We look forward to providing a relaxing and luxurious home base for your island activities and adventures. As they say in the islands, Maui No Ka 'Oi! (Maui is the Best!)

Warmest Aloha,

Kim & Mack

Great Location, Great Property, Great Service

  • 5 of 5

We last visited Maui as a family at Christmas, almost 25 years ago. This time, my wife and I visited with my sister and her husband. Maui seems to be busier now - I did not enjoy the traffic jams in and approaching Lahaina, so, after two extended excursions there, we decided to focus on the northern and eastern parts of the island and the central highlands - good options for those who are looking for time away from traffic jams.

We were pleased that we had decided to stay in the Maalaea area as it offered just the right balance of "busyness" for us and gave us good access to other parts of the island. The harbour, which the property overlooks, is busy from dawn to dusk, with lots of whalewatching, snorkelling, diving and fishing excursions, and sunset cruises available for boarding within a 5 minute walk. There is a great sports bar (Beach Bums), two higher end restaurants (Seascapes was good, we didn't try the other) and two small grocery stores and the Maui aquarium within similar walking distance. There is access to the beach at the end of the street.

The property was quiet and the view from the lanai was great. While the building is older, I think the condo has been renovated recently - it is in great condition. It is well furnished, well equipped, well maintained and very clean. We used only two of the bedrooms - both were a very comfortable size, with good bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable. The third bathroom in the third bedroom was a good feature for our party of four. The air conditioning was very efficient and had seperate controls in each of the bedrooms and the living area - we were able to adjust temperatures quickly to our individual needs. The kitchen was very well equipped (including a "crockpot") and everything worked. There was a good variety of pots and pans and all were in good shape. And there was a good variety of oils and spices. Bottom line - it was a pleasure to cook in the kitchen!

The owner's representatives (Tom and Roland) were very efficient and responded quickly to any questions we had in advance of our trip and any issues (the battery on the phone wouldn't maintain a charge) which we had during the trip. They were also able to accommodate us on a late check-out request. And the congierge (Matt) very efficiently arranged for groceries and wine to be delivered and stocked prior to our arrival.

Thanks very much, Kim, for making your lovely vacation home available to us - we really enjoyed ourselves!

Above and beyond....

  • 5 of 5

This places lives up to it's reviews.

Centrally located, this is a quiet condo with private access to your 4th floor penthouse. Two parking spots for ultimate convenience, less than 5 minutes to the ocean center, put-put and harbor with a few restaurants in walking distance.

The service was unlike any other VRBO I have rented. John was exceedingly friendly, helpful and accommodating. Everything was clean and in very good condition.

5 stars! We would definitely rent again when in Maui.

Perfect location. Easy access to all the towns and activities. Upscale amenities without the resort crowds. Being the first time on the island we drove most of the island and this was a great location to come home to. Penthouse provides all the amenities you need: kitchen fully stocked and beach chairs/toys, etc. Beautiful unobstructed ocean view. We enjoyed watching the boat activity at the marina. We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers-----everyone was happy. Tom was very helpful-----

Wonderful stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at this beautifully decorated and very comfortable penthouse. It had everything we needed and more! It is with in walking distance to beaches, shopping, the Maui Ocean Center.

We really appreciated Tom's advice for stops on the Road to Hana.

The lanai was the perfect place to start and end the day - looking over the water in the morning and gazing at the stars at night.

It was a great place to spend our vacation!

This luxury penthouse is ideally located, giving you especially convenient access to both south Maui (Kihei, Wailea, Makena) and West Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua). Both areas offer world-class restaurants and shopping, as well as golf, spas, hiking opportunities, and all the water sports you can imagine!

Within walking distance from the penthouse is the Maui Ocean Center, one of the Zagat Survey's U.S. Family Travel Guide's Top-Rated Attractions in Hawaii. The Ocean Center provides an up-close view of Hawaiian marine life without the need to get wet!

Also just a stroll away is the Maui Golf & Sports Park, where guests can enjoy a tropical miniature golf course, bumper boats, rock climbing, and an extreme trampoline. Great fun for everyone!

Take a short drive and you'll find activities such as horseback riding, ziplining, historical sites, helicopter tours, and luaus. Many guests also enjoy biking down Haleakala Volcano or taking a day to explore the Road to Hana.
