Just listed on Jan 25, 2015! 1Bed/1bath vacation condo with full kitchen, the unit is newly renovated. It is centrally located is South Kihei, a cozy beach town in sunny South Maui.
Quiet end unit away from traffic with lots of privacy. This renovated unit is fully equipped with cooking and fun beach suppliers(Beach umbrella, chairs,towels,boogie boards...) It is right across street from South Maui's best smooth white sandy beaches. You can walk to several beaches, great shops as well as popular local restaurants/bars.
The complex has a cozy Hawaiian village feel with a beautiful pool area and gas BBQ grills. Plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing or just reading in a lazy afternoon.
3-5 mins walk to Charlie Young beach and Kamaole beach (These two beaches connect together, popular for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling,paddle boarding)
5 -7 mins walk to popular restaurants and ABC store.
5 mins walk to Cove park(surfing,paddling boarding, jogging) and Foodland(grocery store,open 24 hours).
7-8 mins drive to Shops at Wailea and world class golf course.
The Good: Great location, quiet, great pool, new kitchen, good beach set up with Tommy Bahama chairs, umbrella and boogie boards, nice size and layout.
The Bad: Mattress completely worn out, mismatched tile, unit is very tired (needs work). The couch has ripped edges with worn corners and the patio table is wobbly. There were no cleaning supplies other than soap. In a condo that has glass tables, windex would have bean great. The broom was fine but the dust pan was broken so it made sweeping up sand and dust difficult. The curtains in the living room did not close at all.
We have stayed in condos all around Kihei over the years and found this unit to be in very poor condition. We had friends staying in another unit in the same development and the contrast was amazing. For starters this development has cockroaches, I know this is the tropics BUT they were crawling out of our light switches! We are told they are spraying next month. We emailed about them and were told to take out the garbage and empties and to place any food in the fridge. We had been doing this already, but I wiped down the whole kitchen, washed the floor and was very diligent and by the fifth day they stopped showing up. The condo kitchen was not well equipped. This was a big contrast with places we stayed in the past including our friends unit in Kalama Terrace. They were welcomed with beer, toilet paper and a full spice cupboard. It would also seem that they don't take stock of kitchen supplies. There were four of us and we had to start getting creative with what we were going to serve food on (no salad bowls) and eat on (only three plastic outdoor plates). We also found the unit dirty, that said I'm not sure it was their fault as next door is an empty dirt lot and on windy days the unit gets covered in dirt. We also had a ceiling panel come down and coat our bedroom hallway In fine black dirt. This is not the owners fault as it was a very windy day, but it added to the dirt that we had difficulty in cleaning up. One of the reasons you rent a condo is you intend to spend time living there, unfortunately this unit needs some work. It's like someone has dropped off all their old worn out stuff that no one wants. Not a place you really want to spend any time in. I can say this freely because visiting other units in the development was just the opposite.
For out first trip to Maui we enjoyed our stay. The condo has a nice location within walking distance to shopping and plenty of food choices.
The pool was nice. The kitchen was stocked efficiently and a nice little deck. However the bed really needs and upgrade!
Everything was as described. We loved our stay. It's across the street from a beautiful beach and a great spot to explore Kihei and the rest of Maui. Great size apartment with a nice kitchen and comfortable pullout bed for my mom and a large bedroom for me and my husband. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Kihei. The owner was very helpful to us. She knew the cool local "non traditional" spots as well which were a bonus on our week stay in Maui. Kihei perhaps is one of the best spots to be it as it is equally distant to almost all the major attractions.
Most important to us, it is a quiet neighborhood. The beach is great for swimming, sunbathing and watching amazing sunset.
Thanks for letting us using your beautiful condo and your great recommendation on local restaurants. We tried all of them:) Cafe O'lei was fabulous, both lunch and dinner!
This condo is in a great location and well equipped. The complex was quiet and peaceful. We walked to coffee shops in the morning and across the street to watch sunset on the beach in the afternoon. I enjoyed swimming and sunbathing on Charlie Young beach while my husband walked to Cove park to polish his paddling boarding skills:) We had a blast! We cooked a few times. However we found barbecue area very fun to hang out because everyone seemed so friendly and had fun stories to tell. The pool area was relaxing too. Can't wait to come back!
We have been to Maui several times. However traveling with our 5-month old baby, we were a little concerned. The owner was very kind to help us coordinating everything from renting baby crib to supplying beach toys. The complex is quiet and peaceful. Our baby was cooperating too:) We like the convenience of walking to beaches, grocery shopping and fun restaurants. We had lots of fun on the beach. Barbecued a few times. The pool area was very relaxing too. The condo is well equipped except a dresser would be nice for the bedroom. Love to come back in Winter!
We were a wedding party of four. Glad the sofa bed was huge. Enough space for two extra adults. The condo is cute, very well decorated. It's comfortable and clean and so close to Charlie Young beach that we were able to find the perfect timing to take wedding shots. We were told that this is one of the most popular beaches here for taking wedding pictures. Came to the right place:)
The barbecue and pool area was very nice. We also enjoyed the spacious lanai. It was tastefully furnished.
We had issue with the mis-matched snorkeling gear. End up renting 4 sets from Snorkel Bob, which fit the shoe size better anyway and were very cheap.
Overall, we had a fabulous experience here. Will be back !
