Adjoining Charley Young to the south is Kamaole I Beach which has a volley ball court, BBQ grills and a long stretch of sandy strolling beach, then continuing south are Kamaole II and III. All have lifeguards on duty during the day. To make your beach trips more enjoyable, there are beach chairs, umbrellas, a beach bag, beach towels & mats and a portable cooler awaiting your use.

P102 was the perfect location in laid-back Kihei

  • 4 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed 10 days in this little condo. It is in a GREAT location! Charley Young beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. You do have to cross S. Kihei road which can be kind of busy, but there are nice crosswalks with flashing light signals to alert cars to stop. There was always plenty of room on the beach, and we went almost every day. There are parks, shops, restaurants and a grocery store within a half mile in each direction from the condo as well. We didn't drive to dinner once, and ate well every night. In fact, I was surprised at how many delicious meals we ate!

The condo is also VERY well stocked. We have been staying in VRBOs for the past 5 years, and very few are as well stocked as this one. I was able to cook complete meals for breakfast and lunch without having to improvise. Also had a blender for smoothies and frozen drinks! There were beach chairs, boogie boards, pool nooodles, snorkeling gear and tons of towels. The bed was also very comfortable!

The property manager, Lynn, was exceptionally welcoming and helpful. I would stay here again just to work with her again. She's great and the owners are lucky to have her. The groundskeeper/maintenance person can always easily be found cleaning up, painting or making small repairs to this and that. He was friendly and helpful, and the grounds are well maintained.

The only reason I didn't mark this as a 5-star rental was because of the noise. This condo complex is not boisterous or rowdy at all. In fact, it's very calm - quiet hours are even posted and upheld by basically everyone. I think it has to do with the layout of the condos. Each building is an L-shaped building, 3 stories tall. The front doors of all the units face the same direction (kind of like an old-school outdoor access motel). We slept with the windows open to enjoy Maui's nice evening temps, but that meant we heard every person that walked by the window, any cars coming and going at night and early in the morning, any conversations of people walking by our rooms at night, and any other noise that was slightly above normal from any nearby unit. The birds also start to wake up about 6:00 am. :) We did not try shutting the windows and sleeping with the AC on - this may have made a difference in nighttime noise.

I highly recommend this rental despite the noise issues I mentioned, as I think it's a good value and in a really great location.

okay but wouldn't choose again

  • 2 of 5

It should not be advertised as air conditioned because only the kitchen and living area are cooled by the small window unit. You have to have a fan for the bedroom and bath to make them tolerable at night.

It was really laid out well. It had everything we needed for a fun trip.

  • 4 of 5

The only downside was the fact that the condo had no sound proofing. We could hear other people’s conversations.

Nice condo, walking distance to beach and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

We’ve stayed in a lot of condos and this one was better equipped than any we have stayed in- even had condiments and toiletries to use. The manager for the condo is lovely and very helpful- had issues twice and she was there quickly both times, and came personally to make sure we were settled and knew where everything was. TVs could be updated and fan light in living room does not work or I would have given 5 ⭐️

Convenient & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for the budget traveler! Nothing fancy but super comfortable and in a great location! It was the perfect home base for our trip to Maui. The small kitchen had everything we needed to make some dinners and breakfasts. It was a 5 min walk to the beach for sunset and the best beaches in Maui are just a 10 min drive. It was also just a 10 min walk to some great restaurants. The internet was super fast and the AC worked well. It had all the beach toys we could want! Snorkel gear, chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards! Lynn was super great at making sure we had everything we needed! The only negatives are that there are no views and if you are a light sleeper the type of windows in the bedroom do not block sound well at all. Overall I would recomend this place and I would stay here again!
