About Barb Exton

My husband & I have both been on Maui for over 35 yrs. We met here in 1981 and were married in 1984. We've both spent many years in the service industry & John is a certified arborist with extensive experience in landscape maintenance. Our home is in Haiku, but we've always dreamed of having a condo in South Maui where we could walk to the beach. We have been very fortunate and now will be able to realize that dream. Some may wonder why there are just a few reviews for this property. The condo was already booked when we made the purchase & we didn't want to use the previous owners reviews. Welcome back to those of you returning, & for our new guests, we hope you'll come, stay & enjoy the beautiful sunset view as much as we do. Fondest aloha, Barb Exton & John Barker

Barb Exton purchased this condo in 2013

Why Barb Exton chose South Maui

Location, location, location! The proximity to the ocean and amenities made this complex a winner for us. It's also a smaller complex with mature, well maintained landscaping. If we wanted to spend a couple days in Kihei, it was always in the area of South Maui.

What makes this condo unique

We had been looking for a condo seriously for almost three months & and when we walked into this one and saw the view, our search was over. The place also had a comfy, well taken care of feel. It did need some upgrades & we did an extensive remodel in May of 2014. We wish we could stay more !!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Stop thinking about it. If you are going to Maui, need a place to stay, and Barb's condo is still available, stop thinking about it and book it.

If you are considering going to Maui and the cost/value of available accommodations is a concern, and Barb's condo is still available, stop considering and book it.

It is a slice of paradise. The location is perfect, the view gorgeous, the condo itself warm and welcoming and well kempt and well furnished. It has everything you need for a day at the beach, from the coffee maker to wake you up early (remember, snorkeling starts when the sun rises), to the beach chairs and umbrella and boogie boards and beach towels and frisbee, to extra books (a great collection at that) and comfy chairs upon which to read them, to a prime spot to view sunset and great proximity to a high quality beach (Kam 2) if you want to walk rather than drive to others.

Stop thinking. Book it. Best vacation of my life, and Barb's condo made it possible.

And, for what it is worth, Barb is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Alternatively, don't book it and leave it available for me to book again as soon as I possibly can.

Owner's Response: Aloha dear guests, Wow, how do I respond to this glowing review. Thank you so much! I appreciate that you pointed out the cost/value ratio of our accommodations. This is a most important factor for us. Being a professional in the service industry for 35 years & a traveler myself, we realize how important this is. Everything else is just icing on the cake. It was a sincere pleasure working with you as well & we hope you'll be back soon. A hui hou! Barb

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location on the island and a very nice condo unit. We loved having all of the beach gear for our use. My only qualm was that the bedroom was a bit warm with the AC only in the living room.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, at times we have periods that are hot with no trade winds. You might have experienced that. I'm sorry if the ceiling & tower fan didn't help in the bedroom. We do have a great location & I'm glad you enjoyed the beach supplies. Mahalo for staying with us.

Great value and location

  • 5 of 5

It was easy to make arrangements and communicate with the owner. The condo was in a great location and offered a nice ocean view at a very fair price. The condo was in a well kept community and was clean and well stocked with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. I would stay there again and would recommend it to others visiting Maui.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love the location of the Kihei Akahi and have stayed there several times. Our three week stay in D-309 was very pleasurable. We found the condo to be well stocked as far as appliances, cookware, linens, beach supplies. The condo is well kept, remodeled and shows that the owner cares for the comfort of their guests. The overall booking process was quite easy and the owner is easy to reach for any questions or concerns. Even though the unit is right by the elevator, it was relatively noise free. We will definitely be open to staying there again.

Owner's Response: Aloha & MAHALO for your kind words. We are lucky to have that location. Thanks for mentioning the elevator not being an issue & that we are well supplied. Two important items. We'd love it if you made it back for another visit. Let us know!

Our condo has been a delight. It is very nicely appointed and well supplied with everything we needed. The ocean view is wonderful.

The owner has been very accommodating and gracious and we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Yes! This VRBO is a great value with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in D309 Kihei Akahi for 2 months. The owner was so agreeable and allowed us to book early and keep the quoted rate fixed even as our Canadian dollar kept falling. The unit had no carpeting so made cleaning easy. It had been renovated and all the utilities worked well. We made huge use of the lanai and made most of our meals in the well appointed kitchen. Barb was very accessible and responsive to our every query. The three beaches are so close, as are all the moderately priced restaurants. We miss the sunsets and the conch blowing already.
