About Steve & Cynthia Van Kleef

We met here on Maui through a mutual friend. We are now married and loving every day together. Our mission at our condo is to provide a space where couples can come to fall in love with their spirits, each other, their passions and nature. We live, work and play here on Maui.

Steve & Cynthia Van Kleef purchased this condo in 2006

Why Steve & Cynthia Van Kleef chose South Maui

Our condo is where we developed our relationship, created the beginnings of our adventures together and where we formed a deep and lasting bond. We've spent hours down at Charley Young Beach playing in the waves, laughing, loving and dreaming about future plans, all while we caught waves body surfing - yes! We feel so blessed to have met in our mid-40's, we thank the Divine daily for our meeting.

What makes this condo unique

What we love about our condo is the 'reverse sunset' - where we watch the ever-changing colors of Mt. Haleakala as the sun sets. The pinks, blues, purples, whites and oranges never cease to amaze us, especially when the full moon is rising as the sun is settting. When there is a full moon rising, we turn off all of the lights and we watch the moon rise as it illuminates the condo, all from the private comfort of our home. Truly breathtaking, touching the spirit in a a way that only nature can. You will see only nature and not large condo buildings from the living room.

Wonderful Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot to spend a few days on Maui. The condo is clean and well appointed. Having full sized washer/dryer in the condo and leftover condiments in the fridge were both nice, and not something that all places have. The beach across the road is great and easy to walk to. Condo is an easy drive from the airport, and there are some good restaurants just down the road. We would love to come back!

Great Maui Vacations

  • 4 of 5

The unit was clean and functional and reflected the pictures and descriptions made by the owners. The waether was really hot during our week in Maui and it was difficult to keep the condo at a cool temperature but everything else was perfect.

We enjoyed the location which provided easy access to Haleakala, road to Hana, snorkel to Molokini, the aquarium and more crowded and commercial cities such as Lahaina, Kaapalani and Wailea.

The Charley young beach is a short and easy walk from the condo. Beach chairs, boards, umbrella and towels were provided with the condo. The beach was great with ample space, the sand was soft and the waves were gentle. We've seen turtles everytime we went to that beach and the kids enjoyed their surf lessons at Maui Wave Riders wich is about 0.5 mile. If you're looking for big waves, Big beach is a 15 minutes drive away.

So if you're looking for a great relaxing place to stay away from the crowd but yet only 45 minutes to the commercial area of Lahaina and Kaanapali for shopping and restaurants, this is a definitely one to consider.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need for a wonderful island stay. Perfectly located to go do and see many activities. Beach a short walk away. Many restaurants and shops close by. Many thoughful touches from the owners. There was construction going on in the unit next door during our stay which made sleeping in out of the question, but clearly that is a short term situation. I would recommend this home for a relaxed island stay.

Perfect location and comfortable, cozy accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Grand Van Kleef it had all we needed to make our vacation enjoyable! The location was perfect easy walking distance across the road to Charlie Young beach and restaurants, shops and grocery stores were close by too. We were very pleased with the condo and the complex kept very clean and the condo was cozy and 'homey'. The only air conditioner was in one of the bedrooms but it kept the condo cool at night with the help of ceiling fans. We definitely would come back again!

Everything we could have wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Maui and our first VRBO experience unsure if it was going to be for us. This property changed our minds in a big way! The four of us were so taken with this place: a quiet home with close access to the beach and all the amenities Kihei has to offer. None of us had anything remotely negative to say about our stay. The parking spot is near the back of the Pacific Shores lot but has quick access to the stairwell that leads to the 3rd floor apartment. On entering, you're greeted with a well ordered entryway, a kitchen stocked with absolutely everything we needed, a nice dining area, and comfortable living room. The two bedrooms have very comfortable beds and plenty of storage. They are separated by the two bathrooms (one ensuite and one with the entry off the living room). During our stay, we were amazed with the quietness of the neighbourhood (sleeping with the patio door open and air conditioner off) it was really nice. Mornings, we didn't even hear the other couple wake or shower because of the layout. Sunrise over Hale'akala wakes the multitude of birds that reside on the property and the adjacent lot to the south that seems to be a small bird sanctuary. No significant traffic can be heard at any time in this place. The suite is adorned with cute little notes that point out the workings of the apartment and the conveniences that are spread throughout the place. It's like a scavenger hunt of unexpected bonuses: local guidebooks loaded with suggestions, stocked kitchen complete with plastic set for pool-going, beach towels, beach chairs, boogey boards, beach bag, green laundry soap for super handy laundry set, dishwasher (also with soap), ice maker, little treats you can give the fish, hints on how to keep the apartment cool (which worked and was comfortable the whole time), and more that I'm forgetting.

The Charlie Young Beach is a quick walk away and is a great beach with decent snorkelling on a calm day and never overcrowded - we saw a turtle within 4 minutes of entering the water the first time on our first day: really cemented our opinion of the place. Café Olé is just down the street and was a favourite for great food at super prices.

We loved loved loved our time here and hope to come again!
