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 !!!

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

A very well maintained property

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.

Perfect Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here from February 17-21st. The condo looked just like the pictures - it was beautiful. But what doesn't do this condo justice is the view! The entire living room is lit up with the view of the ocean!! My husband and I arrived late on Friday night after our flight into Maui, so we didn't get to see the view until the next morning. Once we got up and went into the living room, we actually stopped short once we saw the view from around the corner of the bedroom/bathroom. It was spectacular! Additionally, the balcony is very cozy and a wonderful place to sit in the mornings with a cup of coffee (or really, at any time of day!). Barb also had beach chairs, a cooler, beach towels, and beach toys for use. We took advantage of the pool one day when it was really windy outside - another wonderful perk of this condo. Thank you, Barb, for your hospitality - we definitely plan on coming back!

Already booked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Barb. Your condo met our expectations in every way. The location couldn't be better. Close to the beach, restaurants and shopping without having to get in the car. The lanai and the view were fantastic as were the pool and gardens. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. We used the beach chairs, coolers and boogie board every day. We were very impressed with the thorough daily cleaning of the grills and the general maintenance of the buildings, gardens and pool. We very much enjoyed our first trip to Maui and your unit, so much so that we are coming back for 3 weeks next year. Thank your for your responsiveness whenever we had questions. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Aloha, I'm so glad you were finally able to make your trip to Maui! Thank you so much for your kind words about our condo & the complex. One of the reasons we were glad to find this unit was because of the care & maintenance of the property. We're so glad you'll be staying with us again. MAHALO!
