About David and Franca Rivera

We got married on Maui 20 years ago, and have always dreamed of having a home here. Our wedding was just down the road on Makena Beach. Since then, we have returned each summer with our children, friends and extended family. Maui is a slice of heaven!

David and Franca Rivera purchased this condo in 2014

Why David and Franca Rivera chose Kihei

We are so excited to own this property in the Maui Kamaole development. The South Kihei area is ideal, with its beautiful beaches just across the street, and great variety of restaurants just up the road. If you go south a few miles, you are in Wailea, with world-class shopping and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

When you enter our condo, you will love the view from the lanai. It's the perfect place to start your morning listening to the birds, and end your day with an unforgettable sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Returned home yesterday and already miss your wonderful rental. Wanted to say thank you for such a welcoming, relaxing place. Everything about it was perfect: the location across from the beach and close to shopping, the cross breeze through the condo, beautiful grounds with the stalking egret we saw in the morning, very comfortable bed upstairs, the loft itself, well-stocked kitchen with the sturdy blender which was well used for frosty drinks! If i ever return to Maui it will be to h209.

What an awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in H-209. The pictures were just like the condo... you know exactly what you are getting when you arrive. The condo is in an amazing location on the island. Very close to great restaurants and great beaches. Would love to stay again!

Great condo with nice location and amazing sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully updated, we especially loved the artwork, with nice amenities and a fully stocked beach "goodies" closet. The configuration, with 2 separate beds in the downstairs room, was perfect for us--a family travelling with 2 young kids, and the lanai was a perfect place to top off the day with a sunset. The condo grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The pools are very nice; we liked the upper family pool best. The location was a good jumping off point for exploring the island, beach going, and convenient for shopping as well. Our only minor complaint is about all of the condo complex "rules"--these were given to us beforehand, a reminder sheet at check-in, and posted all over the grounds. While we didn't have any issues, it was a little less relaxing to have to continually be aware of noise in the condo (no a/c after 10, which could be a problem in the hotter parts of the year) and at the pool (even our kids kept asking if they were being too loud). Nothing to do with David, Franca, or Kelly, who were all great. Overall, a wonderful place and we would definitely stay here again.

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Many great comments have been left regarding H209 and I will echo them all.

The pictures of the unit in the listing are exactly what you get so there shouldn’t be any big surprises for anyone. The 2nd bedroom is a loft and any noise from the living room below can be heard above. The AC units work very well to bring the temps down at night. It has been remodelled very nicely and is more comfortable that most “big business” resort villas that we’ve stayed at. Two major things that stand out in my mind:

- Communications from David and Franca are 1st rate - I think they must have a phone by them at all times. From booking through to the stay they were quick and prompt to reply, which counts for a lot to me as someone with a busy schedule. They informed us the dishwasher was broken on our arrival and promptly had it replaced two days later so as to not inconvenience us, with lots of communication to arrange a time to do so. We also had to call them to reset a door lock and because the code locks are internet enabled - they were able to remotely reset them instantly.

- The attention to little details shows that this is someone’s home and not just a investment property run by a property manager. The kitchen plugs have USB ports. There’s a pineapple corer in the cupboard. The fridge has an ice maker and filtered water. There are spices and lots of little food stuffs that haven’t been plundered by the cleaning crew like at other places. I think I saw a booster pack in case your car battery dies. All these little things were noticed and appreciated by me.

The only negatives are of no fault of the owners. As mentioned by other commenters, the HOA here has a “No Fun” policy at the pools that forbids inflatable items and any games that make noise (ie Marco Polo). Noodles and flotation devices for kids are permitted though. Also - the complex is on a hill and has a flight of stairs to get to the unit - so keep that in mind if you are mobility impaired or have a heavy stroller that you have to lug around.

This was a great experience and we certainly hope to return to this property in the future. Mahalo.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

While it's difficult to mess up a trip to magical Maui, staying at this lovely unit made our first time in Hawaii just perfect. Aside from the missing guest book - totally not a big deal! - we can say nothing bad about this place. Franca was very communicative from the beginning, emailing clear access instructions (the keypad means no keys to lose on the beach or dig for at the bottom of a bag - awesome!) and a thorough info packet as well as answering a few questions I had before arrival.

The unit itself is clean, comfy, updated (beautiful bathrooms and kitchen), and such a convenient launch pad for Kiehi and beyond. Totally possible to walk to a new Kiehi dinner spot every night. The open, two-floor/loft-style layout makes the space feel much bigger than it is. Multiple decks would provide good areas for alone time if traveling with a larger group. Parking is easy and close, i.e. minimal lugging of beach paraphernalia to and from the car.

Every morning we enjoyed coffee, breakfast, and some reading from the large, breezy lanai overlooking the water before quickly popping down to Kam III beach with a medley of provided gear in tow (chairs, boogie boards, masks and snorkels, umbrellas - you name it and it's in the gear closet!). The complex itself is pristine and very quiet, with a warmed pool perfect for a bit more post-sunset fun; many families took advantage of this space for grilling dinners. Private grills, which we used, are also scattered around the property, including right around the corner from the unit. The kitchen has everything you need (a better $20 Costco non-stick fry pan wouldn't hurt), bed and pillows are just right, and lounging around on the plush sofa for a movie with the evening air blowing in couldn't have been any more relaxing.

We scoured countless Kiehi properties before booking this place and are so glad this is where we ended up - could not recommend it any more highly! The next time we stay in Kiehi, this is where we'll be!

Mahalo for such a wonderful time, Franca!
