Second stay even better than the first, third stay already booked for 2019!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing experiencing renting 509 in 2017 that we had booked this recent trip before the last was through......and did the same thing again this trip! The condo feels more like a home away from home than just a rental. The location is perfect as we adore Kihei's beaches, its shops and restaurants and just its overall laid back and friendly vibe.

The owner manages communications directly herself and makes sure you have everything you need and more every step of the way. She really cares about sharing her home with her guests so they have a perfect vacation. The kitchen is so well stocked that even my picky husband and I have what we need to create delicious meals just like we would in our own kitchen. Then you can enjoy your meal at a full sized table on the huge lanai just yards from the ocean as you watch the waves crash......or even better, watch turtles and whales....we've seen both!

We love that one of Kihei's best beaches is steps from the back door, as well as some great snorkeling. We love taking advantage of the manicured back lawn and giant beach chairs when we're not feeling in the mood for sandy toes :-)

Did I mention that it's a fabulously stylish condo with a comfy bed, large bathroom, indulgent shower and every beach item you could ever need? We just can't imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Mahalo Stacey and Asher and we'll meet again in 2019!

Cannot wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the most relaxing 11 days ever, and we have already booked again for 2020! Stacey has thought of pretty much everything to make her place a home away from home for anyone who stays here. Her responsiveness to our questions in the days leading up to our trip was fabulous, and she was readily available again once we were here. This condo is just perfect - very nicely decorated and comfortable. The ability to open the glass doors the entire width of the lanai to bring the ocean air and view inside is the best part! Until we return, we will miss the sound of the ocean, watching turtles and whales from the lanai, sipping wine at sunset, and waking up to the gorgeous soft light at sunrise.

Not quite what we expected

Key to rating—Stacey “A”, Condo B-, Housekeeping F

Having been to the Royal Mauian before and having a wonderful experience we anxiously looked forward to returning. We love Kihei and its walkability. The Royal Mauian is an older building but it is extremely clean and well maintained. Stacey was excellent at prearrival communication. She had all information to us in a timely manner and responded to all our requests within a few hours. We arrived after 14 hours of travel just wanting to get comfortable and relax for our 1 week stay in Maui. Our disappointment started here. The condo was freshly painted and well maintained but just had a cold feeling to it. There really was no decor to speak of except for some oddly scattered items and an abundance of pillows. The sofa was covered with one of the non-descript brown protectors that you buy at Bed,Bath and Beyond and the bed had a weathered yellow comforter with more pillows. Needless to say the condo did not look anything like the pictures in the VRBO listing.

Well, OK we could deal with this. It was a disappointment from the unit we stayed in prior but it was comfortable and the views were great.

The housekeeping was a disaster. There were 2 dead plants sitting on the kitchen counter as we walked in. Other plants were unwatered and in need of attention. We were left half a roll of paper towels, one extra roll of toilet paper, no tissues and one detergent pod for the dishwasher. The oven was dirty. Soap dispensers were unfilled. Towels were damp when my wife went to use them after her shower and we were left 3 washcloths for a week stay. There were other problems but there is no need to go on. We found out that someone who had never been to the unit had the cleaning responsibilities prior to our arrival and was unfamiliar with Stacey’s standards. And to Stacey’s credit she was again responsive and was willing to have any deficits corrected. But after 2 additional visits from the cleaners we did not want to spend our vacation time dealing with what should have been done correctly the first time.

We know that Stacey was truly sorry for our inconvenience and certainly was very upset by what was going on. We believe that she handled the situation to the best of her ability. We would not dissuade anyone from staying at the condo. Minus the housekeeping deficits it had everything for a comfortable stay and we are sure that Stacey will be more careful in the future.

Fantastic location! Fantastically beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Royal Mauian 509 was the greatest vacation we have ever had. The condo is beautifully appointed with everything that you might need and executed in perfect taste. You would think that staying in such a pretty place could not get any better, but then you look out the window at the world class view of Kamaole Beach. We loved to slide the floor to ceiling doors open and bring the beach indoors to us. Sitting on the deck at sunset with a cocktail in hand you think to yourself "life could not be any better".

In addition it was very convenient to take a walk across the street to all the amenities that we needed (grocery, restaurants, coffee, general store), and we found Stacey to be a responsive and gracious host. She is on her game!

We would definitely stay at Royal Mauian 509 again, and in fact we are going again this year!

Great location and views.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was in excellent condition and just the best location for us. Views, convenient restaurants, and stores. Should have been made aware of the excellent snorkeling right in front of the condo. Two minor inconveniences - the last resident did not leave any laundry detergent & the TVs were not set up so we could get to available channels without scanning every channel (maybe some instructions - or maybe we're just geezers). Overall, next time we head for Hawaii, this will be the first place we check for availability!

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for staying with us James! Thank you so much for the feedback. The snorkeling right in front of the condo is world class - Please take a look at our TouchStay Welcome Book for more tips like this on how to make the most of your stay. This book also includes instructions on how to use the electronics. I’m so glad you had a great time and we look forward to hosting you again. Next time, please feel free to contact me directly if you are having trouble with the equipment, I’m happy to walk you through it. You definitely should have had laundry detergent for your stay – I’m sorry if you didn’t. Mahalo, Stacey

Stacey Kaplan purchased this condo in 2016

Why Stacey Kaplan chose Kihei

TripAdvisor has named Maui the #1 island in the World. We have traveled throughout the Hawaiian islands, but this section of Maui was always our favorite. We love the sun, powder sand beaches, warm swimmable ocean water, turtles, whales, magical sunsets, kite boarding, SUP (stand up paddleboarding), scuba diving, yoga, golf, hiking, and delicious food.

We decided to purchase a condo in Kihei so that we could spend more time in Maui and also to share our love for the area with our family, friends and guest.

We recently purchased our second Kihei Maui Beachside property, Maui Sunset B516 (VRBO 1221120). A full remodel was completed at the end of 2017.

What makes this condo unique

When we walked outside onto Royal Mauian 509's lanai (Hawaiian for veranda, patio or porch) for the first time and saw multiple Green Sea Turtles floating around we knew this was the one. It's location is perfect to stay put or jump around exploring the Valley Isle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My girlfriend and I stayed at Stacey's condo during our vacation to Maui and let me just say, the place was impeccable and exceeded all our expectations. My girlfriend is extremely picky since she's a person who cares a lot about the details of every place we've ever stayed at, but had nothing but amazing things to say about this condo. It's equipped with all the basic amenities to make anyone feel at home. The place itself looks brand spanking new (they did a great job remodeling it). We loved the oceanfront view and the glass sliding door from the living room AND the bedroom. The tall bedroom windows creates a spectacular view of the palm trees right outside, and the clear blue water. It really doesn't get any better than that. Their shower heads along with the heated towel rack in the bathroom is just the icing on the cake! My girlfriend goes crazy for those little details. We also loved the fully equipped kitchen (pots, pans, utensils...etc!). Not only that, as a tech guy, I truly appreciated all the generous outlets available around the house WITH USB ports as well! I mean, is this heaven? Speaking of heaven, their TV was fully loaded with Netflix, Apple TV, XBOX, and *drumroll* a sound bar for surround sound! Let's just take a moment to appreciate that shall we? Overall, this place was perfection! Stacey herself was super accommodating and attentive. We never had any issues communicating with her and appreciated that she took the time to check on us as well. I highly recommend their condo and I will definitely be back!

The grounds are beautifully maintained, with lounge chairs and a newly refinished and heated (approx. 83F/28C) freshwater swimming pool that overlooks the ocean. Pool is approximately 1 min walk. Snorkel with turtles, tropical fish, eels, octopus and rays right out front in the ancient lava reef. Go for a swim at Charley Young Beach (North part of Kamaole Beach I), boogie board, or paddleboard up to Cove Park for the best beginner wave surfing on the island. Countless other activities are close by including the road to Hana, Mt. Haleakala, kite surfing, zip lining, scuba diving, golf and yoga (oceanfront right next door).


Right across the street you will find excellent shopping, sport rentals and some of the best restaurants in all of Maui, including local favorite, Café O’Lei, Coconuts, Da Kitchen, Maui Tacos, Shave Ice, Cinnamon Roll Fair/Place, ABC store, and Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods (Grocery Store).
