About Gloria Roman

Working hard in Silicon Valley, we purchased a second home in Kihei 16 years ago. Each year, it became harder and harder for Kihei to be our second home. It is now our FIRST home. We enjoy the slow pace and small town feeling of Maui and Kihei specifically. We enjoy family and friend gatherings away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Gloria is a licensed Realtor in the state of California.

Gloria Roman purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gloria Roman chose Kihei

Location, Location, Location. It doesn't get better than directly across from Kamaole Beach Park II. The central location allows you easy access for sight seeing, but most of all it provides a RIGHT HERE spot for filling your soul and spirit. Enjoy casual walk along the beach and easy walk to restaurants. It's the perfect spot to connect with others and YOU. The property itself is moderate in size to allow for an intimate setting.

What makes this condo unique

To us, a view and being close to the wonderful warm ocean is our priority. There is something soothing about sitting down and relaxing at the beginning and end of the day watching the surf. Each day is different. The sky, the clouds, the WARM surf, the whales, dolphins... ever changing.

Already Booked Again

  • 5 of 5

Gloria's unit exceeded our expectations. Her detailed emails in advance of us arriving giving information on the condo, the island etc reassured me that we were staying in the right condo. Once we arrived in Maui her thoughtful, and much appreciated, gift basket and how well the unit was stocked to the cleanliness as well confirmed that we had made the right decision. The unit looks exactly like the pictures. We relaxed (and listened to Hawaiian music on the lanai daily) and did not re-clean as I have previously had to do in other units. The kitchen had everything we needed and the products were clean and plentiful. We did not have to buy anything to make our stay in this unit easier for us. We loved that beach towels and chairs and coolers were provided so that our first morning was spent heading off to the beach instead of going to stores looking for supplies. We have already booked again for next year and can hardly wait.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Walk across the street to the beach, or go to either of the two pools in the complex. Nice condo. Ocean view. If you want a Hikei experience, this place is right in the midst of it. Don't forget the free concerts in the Wailea Shops, well worth it.

Awesome condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Gloria provided much info by email before we arrived which was very helpful. The condo is in a great location close to restaurants and any groceries you may need. Gloria and Rich are nice, helpful hosts and the condo is tastefully appointed, clean and also has a wonderful view of the ocean where we saw many whales in the distance from the lanai. Three excellent beaches are in walking distance with one right across the street. Would definitely stay again!

Great location. Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great location in the middle of Kihei. Condo complex was quiet but walking distance to everything. Across from the beach and next to many restaurants and shops. Walked to get a pedicure also. Gloria provided a nice welcome basket even with a personalized towel. Everything you needed for the beach as well towels, umbrella, beach chairs, coolers. We didn't end up cooking any meals but kitchen looked like it was well equipped. Would definitely return.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in December 2017. The location is great as it's across the street from a fantastic beach (with washrooms) and close to restaurants & grocery stores. The personalized towel and goodies were a nice gift from Gloria & Rich.

I did clean/wipe down the kitchen - stove, fridge was empty but had some debris and the microwave was dirty inside. Rich came to vacuum the floors when we first arrived and he was super friendly. We also ran into Rich on another occasion and he was friendly and helpful with ideas of places to visit. I called Gloria, when we first got to the condo, and I didn't find her friendly and felt like I was bothering her. I was surprised as past reviews reflect differently.

The knives were very dull and had rust spots on them. I tried sharpening them with the sharpener that comes with the knife set but they need to just be replaced. The chair and couch are very uncomfortable and even my young son preferred to go into the bedroom to sit on the bed. The a/c is very loud and you will need to turn the tv volume up to hear it over the a/c.

I cleaned the bathroom light switches as they were dirty and the vanity walls need a wipe down as they are sticky in places.

The beach chairs were nice to use. I didn't use the coolers as I only looked in one and it was dirty and I didn't feel like cleaning more.

I don't usually write reviews but thought I should to help other families as accommodations are not cheap in Maui and it's one of the big decisions you need to make for your holidays. The condo was not what I expected, after being there and all the good reviews I read prior to booking.

Owner's Response: I would suggest that future guests look at all reviews and interpret for themselves. When I got the call a few minutes after arrival, I had to insist that Rich immediately come back. You did not want him to come. I insisted and you seemed to have nothing really to show him. Wishing you the best.
