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.

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!

Dull and Dreary

  • 3 of 5

So disappointed. The condo was dull, dark dirty, dreary and depressing. The lighting was so bad we had to move lamps around to see our dinner plate. Everything felt unclean to the point that we had to wash things before we used them. The only coffee pot was a a plunge type so we had to go out and buy a proper coffee pot (good for the next renters I guess). When you rent a condo like this, you expect some basic supplies to be there, ie. Salt & Pepper (no pepper) so that you don't need to stock up on every single thing. The furniture was uncomfortable. The air-conditioning only cools the one bedroom that it is in and is of no use to the rest of the area or the second bedroom. Now I know you don't go to Maui to watch TV, but there isn't a lot to do at night in Kihei, so basic cable would be nice, if only to keep up with the news etc. but only WiFi - Netflix etc. The one good thing is that this condo is central to most beaches in the Kihei and Wailea area.

Owner's Response: Maui has had a lot of cloud cover lately so more lighting is a great idea, we will be adding in more floor lamps. We will be talking with the cleaners too. This is a good reminder for others to read details of the condo so they see in our description it does say A/C only in one bedrrom, only a French press and only wifi/internet TV. Thanks for the heads up.

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many places in the Hawaiian islands , but this beautiful condo has to be my favorite. From the views of Haleakala to the sunsets at Charlie Young beach, the location is perfect for a quiet getaway. Located at the back of the property, the traffic is very low and yet within easy walking distance of central Kihei with numerous shops and restaurants . It is short walk to the ocean and an extensive string of beautiful beaches running both north and south. Swimming and snorkeling are excellent throughout the Kihei area with an abundance of fish and sea turtles to keep you company.

The unit is very luxurious as the photos indicate. There were no surprises as everything was in top working order . The ductless AC was used only occasionally , but did a great and quiet job when operating. This type of unit is the industry best and I was not surprised that the owners installed it , given the quality of all the other upgrades here. The kitchen was nicely designed and very efficient as well as well equipped . Everything is easy to reach and the granite counter tops and cherry cabinets are beautiful. Kudos to the kitchen designer.

When all is said and done the best thing I can say about the Grand Van Kleef is that I will be back next year without a doubt!
