Our condo complex goes through a long term project which involves renovation of external surfaces of the buildings. So far all work is being performed on a neighboring building, but at some point, tentatively in May-June, the activity will switch to the building where our condo is located, and repairs will continue over the next few months. The work will be intermittent and there will be no construction activity on weekends and after 5pm on weekdays. Some phases of construction will result in elevated levels of noise. Most importantly, there will be a period of time, during this summer, perhaps 1-2 weeks, when exterior of our condo will be renovated. During this time the access to our lanai will be closed. The exact dates of these closures will be announced 3-4 weeks before the work starts, at which point we'll promptly share this information with affected guests. We recognize that these repairs will inconvenience our guests, and for all those affected by these repairs we'll offer a choice b/n 100% refund or a discount off regular rate, to compensate for the inconvenience. If you plan to stay in our condo during the period from May to Sep, please be aware of the possibility of construction activities, and talk to us if you have any questions.

Great location, amenities lacking

  • 2 of 5

Perfect location! Great view from the deck, however this unit needs many improvments. A table, dresser, comfortable sofa and chairs are all needed. Unit was stark and bare. There was only a hard futon and two chairs, and benches which we used for stowing our belongings. Kitchen appliances were nice but refrigerator was completely empty except a few bottles of water. No spices or condiments except for salt, red pepper flakes and garlic salt. Comfortable bed and sheets but only giant pillows. No washer or dryer in the unit. TVs required several calls to figure out how to turn on. Bathroom was empty except for one large bar of soap that we cut in half so we could have one at the sink and one in the shower. No place to put anything except for the 2 benches and chair in the living room where we kept our suitcases. Some hooks in the bedroom and in the hallway would provide a place to hang towels, clothes, hats, etc. With a dresser or hooks in the bedroom we wouldn't have had to leave clothes on the floor. There were 2 funky beach chairs in the closet and no ice chest, which would have been useful. A potentially great unit that just needs to be filled with some creature comforts. Not what I was expecting for what I paid

Amazing view for an amazing price!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our first 6 nights in Maui staying at Linda's place. We went for our 2nd year anniversary because we had airline miles for the tickets :). I sat on the lanai every morning for hours enjoying the perfect weather (we are from Texas, so the heat was mild compared to what we are used to), sipping coffee, and reading. The bed was amazingly comfortable - my husband spent the first 2 days of our trip catching up on sleep! We enjoyed having the DVD player available - rented a Redbox movie one night! We used the hot tub one night & it was nice to have all to ourselves (though the gate code didn't work, someone let us in). We used all the kitchen items for cooking 1 or 2 meals a day and then ate the other meal out - lots of great restaurants! The closest store was no more than a 5 min. drive away (though we chose to drive 15 min to Walmart for cheaper prices on groceries). We drove 15 min. almost daily to jog/walk the paved trail that goes from Ulua Beach Park down to Polo Beach (it's right between the resorts and the water for about 1.5 miles). There were beaches within walking distance or 5 min drive if you wanna carry supplies with you. We also enjoyed the drive up to Haleakala National Park - we saw the side with the volcano one day & another day saw the back side from the Road to Hana (that park fee receipt lasts for 3 days, so you don't have to pay twice if you take both those trips within 3 days- wish we would have known that before). We went to Wailea's Finest Honua'ula Luau because we got discounted tickets at Costco - It definitely wasn't worth the full price, but was a fun experience. Best part was wandering around before & after on the Grand Wailea resort gardens & grounds - definitely schedule in time for even if you don't do the luau! We used the beach chairs, umbrella, and beach towels that Linda provided. There were also some extra toiletries under the cabinet in case you forget something. Thanks, Linda, for a wonderful stay in Maui!

Property was nice. Loved the view!

  • 5 of 5

Really liked the place. Curtains looked really worn and the futon couch was not comfortable to sit on. But there was always nice views and great beaches to walk.
