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 Kihei

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 !!!

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.

Our stay at Barb Exton's property in Maui # 495605 was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and our stay at Barb Exton's property in Kihei # 495605 was wonderful! The unit was impeccably clean and well appointed. We had everything we needed in terms of kitchen equipment, beach supplies, etc., and enjoyed all the little details in the unit. The location was also great and allowed for fantastic sunset views from the lanai. Thank you so much Barb, and we hope to come back again. Debbie & Rick Dube, South Bruce Peninsula, ON, Canada

All the comforts of home - and way more!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Barb for a wonderful stay.

The condo is clean, organized and well-stocked for everything from cooking to outdoor fun.

With the doors open, the breeze blows through and keeps the temperature just right. The lanai is the perfect setting for coffee in the morning or happy hour watching whales play in the distance.

The entire complex is in a great location and is very well-kept with beautiful grounds and overnight security (not that we ever felt we needed it).

Thank you so much! We can't wait to visit again.

Great condo in a well maintained complex. The sunset views from the balcony are amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Barb was great with communication and all the necessary details. The condo is well stocked for cooking, laundry, beach towels and beach toys. The place has been renovated so all modern. The wifi works great. There is always a breeze off the ocean so can get great air circulation through the condo so don't need to use the AC much. The condo is right across from Kamaole II Beach so a 5 minute walk from the condo, so no car necessary. There are restaurants and shops near by that you can walk to. We ate a Fred's Mexican and they have great food and drinks. The Foodland Grocery store is about a 10 minute drive with great discounts. The area is quite central for easy visiting of the island. We had Snorkel Bob's in Kihei book us a morning snorkel tour which was lots of fun. Also took a drive up to see the Kapalua Golf Course. The view is amazing even if you are not a golfer. Hope to get back to stay in this condo again at some point. Thanks, Karin
