About Tara McDivitt-Dodd

This one Bedroom, One bath, Ground floor unit was bought in the 1960's by my grandfather. Now, owned by my aunt, she shares the unit by renting it out to family, friends and friends of friends.

With my mother next door, my family (husband and 2 children) and I live on Whidbey Island and already know why island living is so special. However we sometimes do not get to visit this comfortable condo as often as we like. Because we all are living busy lives, my mother and I have agreed to help my aunt out by managing and organizing the renting of my grandfather's unit through VRBO for more people to enjoy.

Perfect location, best stay I've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and cute. Amazing location, steps away from the beach. The lanai view is outstanding! The unit has everything you could need, including all sports equipment for fun in the sun. When I am in Maui next, this is where I will look to stay again. And the people around the condo units are friendly and helpful.

Perfect Kihei base camp only steps from the water with all the necessities and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 10th anniversary at your condo (and kid free!). What first attracted us to it was the gorgeous sunset views, ground floor accessibility and what seemed like one of the closest condos to the water in the area. All of those expectations were met or exceeded. We loved how easy it was to casually stroll in and out for breakfast on the lanai, sunbathing in the grass or a stroll/swim at the beach. We loved the Kihei location because it was out of the main tourist path, but is centrally located which put everything from snorkeling and surfing to dining and shopping to cruising and exploring at our fingertips.

We loved how welcoming and relaxed the whole feel is. It really feels like you're visiting family. The "replace it if you use it up" vibe really makes you feel at home and the vast array of snorkels, fins, beach gear, boogie boards, etc. saved a ton of money and encouraged us to try some new things. A surfboard and a couple beach cruisers are the only things missing - ha! We cooked two meals in each day and while it may not be a chef's kitchen, it certainly had everything we needed. The condo isn't fancy, but it is clean, well appointed and exactly what we were looking for for our relaxing Maui vacation. Our visit was in October and the trade winds definitely kicked up in the afternoons, but other than when we first got there and hadn't yet opened it up, we never missed AC. The only thing that I wish it had was a curtain on the bedroom windows to block out the artificial lights that beams in all night long from the exterior lighting.

Thank you for being so welcoming and so generously sharing your condo with us! If we make it back to Maui we would most certainly try to stay there again.

Everything was great

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything one would need including an amazing view and access to the beach. Tara was amazing and very accommodating. We stayed here for 10 nights. Everything was perfect except for a couple of warm nights. We were with an 8 month old baby and air conditioning would have made things a little easier but again, it was only a couple of nights.

What a great location for a super clean condo.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very clean, and the location is superb -- you're a block off the main drag, so it's convenient to everything in Kihei. It's a very short walk to a grocery store, or to a nice coffee shop for a morning jolt. A longer walk, or a short drive, to many excellent restaurants.

The condo complex was quiet. The condo shuffleboard is right outside the sliding door of the condo, so a little noise from that but only occasionally, and never at night. Things quieted down very nicely at night. Close to the pool, too -- maybe 5 or 6 doors down? Pool was small, as far as I could see, didn't go it -- the ocean beckoned. Warning about the ocean: The beach is mostly sandy, but there are pieces of coral. Wear shoes in the water. It's easy for the waves to make you step onto a small piece of coral. Ouch.

We were there in June and it was a little warm in the bedroom, even with the ceiling fan, but I still slept well.

The condo was well-stocked with beach paraphernalia -- that we didn't use, because we were out driving around the island -- and the nice location of this condo made visiting any part of the island pretty easy.

One slight negative -- the decor is a bit dated. Well, who is there to admire the interior of a condo is what I say! I'm heading outside!

I would definitely go back.

Functional unit in a very good location with ocean and greenbelt/palm tree views

  • 5 of 5

Excellent ocean front location near stores and restaurants. Walk able beach with a mixture of sand and rocks. Can walk/run about 5 total miles on the beach out front round trip, which I did most mornings when not running Sugar Beach or south Kihei/Wailea. I ran barefooted watching carefully for rocks, but carried sandals which I slipped on in a couple of rocky areas on the beach. Easy, ample parking near front door. Hose in front of patio to wash sand off your legs.

Although unit is not luxurious, it is more than adequate, particularly for a solo traveler (like me) or a couple. I think it would be quite crowded for more than 2 people and it's perfect for one. Adequate kitchen although only two burners, no built in oven, and a large toaster/convection oven on the counter. I ate all meals in and had no problem. The owner has the kitchen completely equipped with nice dishes, stemware, pots and pans, knives, bowls, glasses, blender, electric kettle, crock pot, toaster, etc., etc. Everything you need to be self sufficient should you wish to eat healthy at home.

The bedroom has no drapes and gets the easterly sun early (around 5 a.m. mid year) so bring a sleep mask if you want to sleep in, as I did.

Nice patio with a table and 3 chairs plus a 4th rocking chair, plus a side table. Community chaise lounges in front of patio.

I enjoyed my quiet time at the unit although afternoon shuffleboard games by energetic families did ensue on several days outside in the patio area. Convenient if you play shuffleboard, not a real problem if you don't.

The unit was perfect for me and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, as I probably will. The owner (Tara) was easy to deal with and accommodating. She refunded my deposit in full within 3 days. Of course I took good care of the unit and treated it as I do my own home.
