Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the condo, everything was ready and set up for an amzing vacation in that wonderful condo. Indications and instruction were well explained and we couldn't ask for a better condo and location. Alex and Buzz made sure we were well taking cared of and were available if we had any questions. The condo is well equipped and perfect.

Thank you for everything, we hope to visit again.

Clean and cozy in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at Buzz and Alexandra’s condo from October 8 to October 23. My friend met Buzz at the condo (as I landed later in the day). Check in was easy, the condo was spotless and fully equipped, including a full kitchen. King size bed in bedroom, A/C, internet access and it’s on the ground floor. Access to laundry facilities and a reception/concierge on site. The condo is steps away from the pool and hot tub and a minutes walk to the beach. Buzz and Alexandra are lovely people and they made sure that any questions we had were answered and were very accommodating. Kihei itself is fairly central for Maui, cute town, gorgeous beaches. It was also an easy launch point to get everywhere and we explored the whole island! Maui was beautiful and it was a huge relief to have had the place we had for our stay. I would not hesitate recommendating this place to anyone!

Relaxing & Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a great relaxing & refreshing location/great condo and we found it here! The owners were most accommodating and considerate. We arrived 9/18 and Alex met us and was a Godsend! The condo is well equipped, beautiful and very comfortable. Everything was perfect! The location of the condo makes it easy to travel everywhere on Maui. We went on the Road to Hana and toured every rental car accessible road (some are not paved, not covered by rental companies). We even took a plane ride to see the Molokai sea cliffs and highly recommend it. We enjoyed our evenings at Alex & Buzz's condo and viewing the gorgeous sunsets! If we have the opportunity to visit Maui again we will definitely stay here!

Great unit and stunning grounds!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our Maui getaway! The location of the unit was great, it’s beautifully renovated and on the ground level so you have super easy access to the BBQ’s, pool and the beach is only a few hundred feet away where we watched the sunset every night. The unit was fully stocked with all the necessities; kitchen utensils, beach chairs, towels, freezer packs, coolers, separate water cooler and 1 snorkel set (we rented a second set from Boss Frogs for $25). The grounds are also beautiful and so well kept. The owners live in the same complex and came down to see how we were settling in, we didn’t need anything while we were there but Alex offered her help if anything came up. They were really great to deal with throughout the whole process.

Side note, there are a lot of owners in this complex and everyone was so friendly and offered their suggestions on where to eat and what to do while we were there which was an amazing touch. We will definitely be coming back to stay in this lovely complex and hope to get the same unit as well :)

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 nights and found this to be an exceptional condo. The owners are nearby and have completely equipped this place. They gave us good directions and appeared when we got into the parking lot to show us everything about the condo. It was 11PM. We wanted to go to the beach so we needed a cooler. Looked in the closest and there were three of different sizes. So what about ice? We looked in the freezer and there are three packages of blue ice. Virtually everything we needed was there. Great owners and place to stay.
