What makes our unit different?


Sometimes I feel like our guests say it best.

Here is one of my recent guest book entries:

'We just enjoyed two weeks of complete relaxation at this wonderful condo unit in the best complex we have stayed at in Maui. The view from the living room and lanai is outstanding, and allowed us to witness the best whale-watching we have seen in over ten years of visiting Maui. We found everything we could possibly want or need in this condo and Dorli has thought of everything to ensure your stay is easy and relaxed. Right down to the key less entry system which is perfect for those long beach walks and no pockets for the keys! I would definitely recommend this condo to my friends and family.

Our charming and inviting condo is located in sunny South Kihei, right on the border of Wailea in the 4 Star luxury Maui Kamaole Condo complex. The 2 pools are heated and the spas allow perfect relaxations after a long day on your feet.

You can relax on our private lanai, which extends out into a beautiful tropical landscape of green grass, gentle swaying palm trees and colorful and aromatic flowers, while being serenaded by tropical birds and calmed by the ocean waves. Sit and allow yourself to feel the logo of Maui, 'Live is Good.'

This condo is our favorite ‘home away from home’ and we share with you everything we appreciate at our vacation.

Besides a fully equipped kitchen we include some of our favorite books, CDs, Maui maps and tour guides, snorkel tips and activity guidebooks.

Also beach chairs, ice chest, sun umbrella, boogie board and some snorkel gear.

We provide you with beach towels and also warm blankets for visiting Haleakala Mountain.


Our master bedroom has an upgraded super comfy double pillow top CAL. KING Size mattress.

Designed for comfort but support at the same time, which is

a MUST for my ‘achy’ little back. Without a good restful sleep my vacation mood

will drop into the ‘nagging zone’. (My husband’s words, not mine :-)

so he didn't mind spending the extra money there!

Off the bedroom is a small secluded lanai for some outside seating enjoyment, while listening to a tropical bird concert. Great also for drying off your beach gear etc.

Our spacious living area besides offering fabulous ocean views also has a full second bathroom with a walk in shower. (I love my own bathroom! ) We can provide you with a roll-a-way bed or a play pen if needed. Just to make sure everybody is comfy the condo is best suited for 2 adults and one and maybe 2 smaller children.


The washer/dryer in the unit is convenient and loved by everyone.


++one important note, as per request by our utilities company due to our outrageous usage history, we do have a 2 hr. timers on our AC units. They can be restarted anytime when you are home.

You are a short walk to our large heated Pools, Jacuzzi's, waterfalls and tennis courts,

all in luxury lush tropical setting.

A convenient distance and just far enough so noise from other guests will never bother you

when you are at the condo trying to relax! Or take a 'power brake, (as Sigi likes to call it)


We also have a nice BBQ area a few steps outside the building.

Conveniently located away from our condo, so therefore smell and noise will never be a bother either.

It’s these little details that add up to make us appreciate the convenient location of our condo so much more! It is important to us and I know our guest enjoy it as well.


You can stroll along the white sandy beach of KAMAOLE BEACH 3, which is only a few comfortable steps away. Yes you have to cross the street, (there is a crosswalk) but it’s only a 20 mph speed limit and mostly there are just as many walkers as cars on the road. No long or steep hills to climb, ever from our location!

There are also many great snorkel spots for beginners, and you can start in about 4 feet of water and see colorful fishes.

For the advanced swimmer, there is no end for you to explore the many caves and rock-formation right out there. (Detailed info is in the unit.)

You can walk conveniently to many great nearby shops and restaurants or you can explore and splurge through the world famous Shops, hotel bars and restaurants at WAILEA.

For more details and pictures about this condo please email me.

I can also provide you with *** discounted car rental info and many Maui activities links.

I am prepared to help you make this vacation as enjoyable as possible and will guide you all the way through.

All questions are welcome!

Mahalo for your time,

Dorli ^__^



Feel free to let me know if I can assist you with any additional questions.

I love to help and I am ready to share many inside tips about reasonable car rental, best snorkel beaches, restaurants etc. with my guests, just to make sure that your vacation on my favorite Island is absolutely perfect for you.

About Dorli

About YOU:

Aloha, this is Sigi and Dorli the delighted owners! We are originally from Austria but call San Diego our ‘home base’ for almost 30 years now. (“Ja wier sprechen noch Deutsch”.)

With each passing year we are craving warmer climate, gentler oceans and the healing effects of that so very reliable sunshine nurturing our maturing bodies. We fell in love with Maui about 12 years ago and explored, investigated and mingled with locals to learn and understand this beautiful island from every angle. We discovered that the South Side has the most sunshine on the island, (which included this South Kihei area) so we knew this is ‘just what the doctor ordered.’

Dorli purchased this condo in 2006

Why Dorli chose Kihei

It is pure bliss with a ‘don’t worry be happy kind of feeling’. Just wait once you are hear you will be humming it too.


Sometimes our daughter loves to surf, so she goes a few blocks north and hangs ‘loose’ with locals and tourist alike. Or she rents a standing board 1 block south from the condo and explores the waters along the shores. Sigi and his cousins love to boogie board, which is great to do at Kam. 3 in the afternoon.

Stepping outside the condo I can walk for hours along the beaches and within a short distance I can leave the crowds behind. I can sit in harmony with the purest element of nature, getting energized and warmed by the tropical sun and refreshed and rejuvenated by the healing ocean waters within a few minutes. Come and sit with me, it’s magical!

We took the risk and invested in this beautiful condo right across from our favorite surroundings. Our dream is to one day (soon) to live here at least during the winter month and enjoy this enchanted climate day in and day out.

By renting with us, you are keeping our dream alive and in return we will try our VERY BEST to offer you as much service and insight info as possible to make your stay comfy and enjoyable from the moment you are planning this trip. By hiring one of the Best services we keep our condo clean and spotless and with e-mailing you maps and tour guide info, (including car rental, restaurant, snorkel and favorite beach tips) we try to provide you with valuable insights especially if traveling for the first time. It would be an honor to see you here soon. Meanwhile... have a wonderful Aloha day and Malama pono. (Take good care :-)

What makes this condo unique

This condo is so uniquely located (front row) and we waited for a long time to have one come available. We paid top price (which Sigi is still going to therapy for, just kidding) and there is only a few that have the privacy and views like ours. And even though we are front row, you will never be bothered by street noise or any other foot traffic from guests coming and going to the beach, pools and spas. The nights are incredible tranquil and quiet and we love to pull out chairs into the grass to gaze at the stars glistening for attention.

We have yet to have a guest who didn’t love it here so we know it was well worth the waiting and price.

Sigi ‘the accountant’ agrees hesitantly with a big smile! There has to be a Ying and a Yang in every relationship!

But every time we stay here we agree this is paradise with a bonus. We have the tropical climate with all the luxury from speaking the same language and knowing what food you are eating. It’s safe to drink the water and walk outside and talk to strangers. Life is Good!

Come and 'hang loose' with us. 'A hui'. (until we meet)

I am here to help you figure out the best way to enjoy Maui.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dorli!

Day two of our arrival home & still glowing with Maui sunshine. We arrived after sunset & very tired. It was 18 hours from the time we left home. With the time change, we were up by 4 a.m. waiting anxiously for dawn to see the view. We were delighted with our view of the ocean, from your beautifully tiled lanai. All the comforts of home were there & we knew we had made a great choice for our 3 week stay. Bed was comfty, unit clean & your accent on decorating in Hawaiian theme was appreciated. I did invest in a new frying pan which I could easily transport home & just for your info there is a pot there which is totally burnt & should probably be thrown out. There was enough other cookware, no problem. Disappointed with a safe that was not available for our use, but got over it. On day one, we went to Walmart & bought the very last two beach chairs as the Xmas decor replaced the summer stock. We paid $55 for them as they were top of the line, these we left in your closet for the enjoyment of your future guests. They are bright blue, with a design, very comfty & match your umbrella quite nicely.

Thanks so much for the use of your home away from home. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

If we hear of anyone going to Hawaii, we will strongly recommend your place. We are off to Cuba in July where our best friends' son is getting married. Our November vacation will be spent in Florida with my sister & her husband.

Thanks again with kindest regards,

This condo is perfectly located with stunning Oceanviews, yet private and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Dorli this is our first time in Maui and first time using VRBO. We have been THRILLED!! with your condo; it's beautifully decorated, very clean, well equipped and perfectly located for both an Oceanview and yet privacy and quiet. Perfect location for divers using Kihei boat ramp which is only a few steps away. We appreciated having a safe and keyless entry where you take the extra step of changing the code for each guest.

Dorli and Sigi, we can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely condo. You were so sweet and patient with all my questions and so kind to take the time to find us a half day at another one of your condos, so we could shower and get ready for a very late and long flight home. We will definitely stay here again if/when we are able to return to Maui. We have been spoiled! We went snorkeling at the beach across the street and at Ahihi Cove, did several dives, went on a whale watching tour (we even saw one whale right from the lanai), and we are zip lining later today. We hiked Haleakala National Park with waterfalls and a bamboo forest, (so cool!) took a power hang-gliding tour, walked the long trail along the shore through the lava fields at Ahihi Kinaie National Area reserve, drove all the way to Hana & beyond and visited Maui Ocean Center. There weren't enough hours to do the other things we wanted to do, so ..... we have to come back!! Mahalo and Aloha!

Tropical Retreat * Gorgeous Ocean View Condo *

  • 5 of 5

As you enter this condo a stunning ocean view greets you. The owner, Dorli, provides a thoughtful tropical decor as well as all appliances for "home cooked" meals we enjoyed on the lanai watching "one of a kind" sunsets unfold. We will definitely choose this condo for our next vacation to Maui. We appreciate this owner's attention to detail on behalf of her guests' comfort and convenience. If you have the opportunity to rent this condo, you will love it as we did.

Owner's Response: Aloha Leilani and big Mahalo for sharing. All our appliances are in the 2 years range except for dishwasher and the washer/ dryer . Last one had a $1200 total tune-up over the last years and works great. Taste is different and we are limited to models that fit with the existing cabinets and I get disappointed on how limited the options are each time we replace them. So I might understand your suggestion and were it is coming from. Especially fridges have evolved but to fit one in would mean a major remodel and tear down. But thanks for agreeing that they are all in good working condition. Our sofa bed got a $ 600 new mattress bed upgrade last year so I thinks we are in good shape for now. But I will certainly evaluate everything in May when our annual 'tuneup' time is scheduled and I truly value all guests comments and opinions. With warm Alhoa and Mahalo for choosing our condo. Dorli

Great Condo, great location

  • 4 of 5

Spent the last week in this Condo. Location was amazing, and view was great. Condo was fully stocked and well laid out. only complaint I have is while it is great to have a king size bed the Mattress is definitely due for an upgrade.

Owner's Response: Aloha David and thanks so much for taking the time to post here. So sorry about your dislike for my mattress. (Funny not too long ago I got a comment on how comfy it was.I have guest comment included here below) I guess it's a personal preference but the mattress in only 2 years 'young' . I will 'test' and inspect it next month for sure. when I get to stay there a few weeks. With warm Aloha and Mahalo for choosing my condo. From: Jim P Sent: Thursday, January 12, 2017 9:57 AM To: welikemaui Subject: Re: MK late check out . MAHALO! BTW the bed and pillows are the most comfortable we have ever experienced. Since we are looking for new bedding we would be interested in the brands and model you have here, there great. Mahalo, Jim Sent from AOL Mobile Mail

Two peaceful weeks!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in this area of Kihei several times in the past, I liked the idea of a front row view but was a little concerned about noise. I had seen a review or two of this property that indicated that noise was not an issue, so I decided to give it a try. Couldn't have been happier with our decision. Spent much more time on the lanai than I would've ever imagined. The unit was also nicely appointed and had more of the essential supplies than needed. We found this unit to have every thing that we needed and then some.
