About Mike and Rie

We purchased this condo in 2010 from the former owner while we were staying in the unit, however, we just listed the unit on VRBO Sep, 2013. We met in Hawaii, got married, lived in Japan, and now we are living in Maui with our baby girls. Mike is a United States Marine Corps Veteran who has lived in Hawaii for more than 20 years. Rie speaks Japanese and English. She is originally from Saitama, Japan. We both attended Hawaii Pacific University where we earned our Masters Degrees in Business. We enjoy the beach, tennis, golf, snorkeling, driving around the island, and eating out. Our new additions; Maya was born in January 2013 and Nina was born in December 2014 are now our main hobby. We would be happy to help you with anything you would like to know about the islands.

Mike and Rie purchased this studio in 2010

Why Mike and Rie chose South Maui

Like you; we came to visit or find a place in Maui. This is the first place we stayed. Clean, cozy, central A/C, fully furnished, steps to the beach and you can see the ocean from the unit. There is a nice pool/jacuzzi and a sauna. One great benefit is that the complex provides a concierge at the front desk area to help you with all the island activities you are interested in. We enjoyed it so much, we ended up buying this unit. This unit is in close proximity to great beaches, grocery stores, and restaurants and is only a 20 minute drive from the airport.

Excellent apartment and location !!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The apartment had everything we needed and more!. All kitchen supplies, beach supplies (beach chairs, towels and board), air conditioner, awesome balcony, and a super comfy bed! The beach is within walking distance, there is also a pool and laundry. Within walking and driving distance there are many restaurants, supermarkets, gym and bars. This is a great location were you can interact with both locals and tourists. Thank you Michael and Rae for letting us rent your place, we loved it!

Very nice with all of the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Our favourite part was having everything we needed. beach chairs, a pool noodle, several kinds of beach mats, an umbrella etc. It would've been awesome to have a boogie board or two but we just rented some with ease. We booked this knowing it was a studio with our one year old and thankfully the pack n play they provided fit in the bathroom! it was very tight though. Our daughter would not have gone to sleep in the common area with the rest of us still hanging out. So i would not recommend this place if you have small children that you plan on putting to bed before you. The unit is closest to the south kihei road so the traffic noise was a bit obnoxious on the patio. It was a trick to get the temperature not too hot and not too cold at night so the single blanket each bed had often left us chilly. The only thing I would suggest is to somehow put an outside lock on the patio door. It was such a treat to have our car parked right there but it ended up being a walk to get to the front door when the patio was oh so close. We all took turns making the walk around to the main entrance whenever we got back to the suite. I do give this place 5 stars because despite those minor things we loved it and would totally recommend it to a couple. Thanks for the great stay!
