Guestbook comments from the owner


I just wanted to send you a short note letting you know how much myself and Matt enjoyed your condo. Aside from it being so beautifully decorated, the loacation was absolutely perfect. Matt liked it so much that it was hard to get him to go outside!!

We will definitely pass along your site to anyone headed out to those parts.

Thanks again.

Perfect Maui condo

  • 5 of 5

Unit #403 was perfect for our visit to Maui. Centrally located in Kihei, assigned parking, a lovely lanai with ocean and mountain views-- it had it all! The Kauhale Makai grounds are immaculately maintained and beautiful, with a well used BBQ area and pool. Kristy at the front desk was so welcoming and helpful, and Jeannie was easy to reach and very helpful in working out a website problem with VRBO. The condo was tastefully decorated with a tropical, plantation motif and is very attractive and comfortable. There was ample closet space, extra linens, an awesome tiled walk in shower and a very comfortable King bed. The unit is completely stocked with everything we could have needed. This included kitchen appliances and utensils, beach towels and fins, beach chairs, lunch bag and ice pack , even sunscreen. The lanai was large with 3 chairs and 2 small tables, perfect for breakfast overlooking the ocean. We simply could not have found a better spot to stay! Check out 95.5 FM for contemporary Hawaiian music, and remember your key when you go down to the pool!

amazing view, great location, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. We loved the pool and direct access to the beach! The view on the ocean from the balcony is amazing. The check in was super easy, the condo was clean and spacious! We like when it’s cold during the night so we used the air conditioning and it was working perfectly.

Beautiful - as pictured!

  • 4 of 5

We showed up at the time we were supposed to check in, and the place wasn’t cleaned (garbage/recycling, dirty sheets and towels) which was a little disconcerting since it was a Friday afternoon! However, we called the onsite manager, as well as Jeanie and left messages with each of them. Jeanie called back within minutes and within half an hour someone was there to clean. Jeanie was incredibly responsive, professional, and stated this had never happened before.

The apartment was as pictured, with a nice view and a short walk to the beach. If we make it back to Kihei, we’d stay here again.

Was better than staying at a five-star hotel. The owner was unbelievable, sweet, communicative, and very fair. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone coming to Maui

Love, love, love this condo!

  • 4 of 5

Wow, we could see the ocean right from our condo and balcony! The condo is designed and furnished very nicely. We felt so comfortable staying there. Great ceiling fans and A/C if you want to turn it on. Location in Kihei is amazing. Close to many great beaches and so many awesome restaurants. Donna at Reception is quite the gem and provided some great suggestions. The pool area is wonderful. There are 5 BBQs for guests/residents to use -- very well kept and cleaned every morning.

Why not 5 stars? We were prepared for noise from construction but not for the inconvenience of having to be out of our suite (or staying in) from 8 - 5 on 2 consecutive days as they resurfaced the walkways on the 4th floor. We understand the need to renovate aging condo buildings but it was inconvenient for it to happen during our week in Maui. However, we got ourselves up and out by 8 to experience all the beauty, relaxation and fun that Maui has to offer!

Owner's Response: Aloha Anna & Dave, Thank you for selecting our condo for your stay in Maui and the review of our unit. We are very sorry your days were interrupted with construction or repaving of our walkways. The construction process has been extremely stressful for me and other owners as well as we want our guest to have a pleasant experience. Should you make it back to Maui our complex will be completely updated. Best Regards & Mahalo! Jeannie Lawrence

Well appointed and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this well appointed condo during the month of April. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home! The online photos are an accurate representation of what you can expect. The unit was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, dishes, and cookware needed to prepare meals. The bed was especially comfortable - I need one of these mattresses at home! There is a great BBQ area outside near the pool that turned out to be a nightly meeting place. We met a lot of interesting people while grilling our dinner or sitting by the lovely pool. Other reviewers have mentioned the construction. Yes, we had construction and most of the work on this unit's lanai took place while we were there. Jeannie let us know about this well in advance, so we knew what to expect. The workers were respectful of our privacy and we planned our outings to explore the island or time at the pool while they were present. It was not a problem and I believe the work on this building is mostly complete now anyway. We found the location of this condo development to be perfect for our day trips and close to restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. One restaurant we can highly recommend is Paia Fish Market with locations in Kihei, Lahaina, and Paia. We went several times and enjoyed the grilled Ono, our favourite! We found the weather to be much more pleasant in the Kihei area than other places we visited on the island. Jeannie was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with from our first inquiry to booking and beyond. The condo is a gem and we look forward to our return visit!
