Recent South Kihei (Kamaole I & II Beaches Area) reviews

  • A wonderful place

    "We LOVED our stay at Lily's in Kihei! Hopefully we will get to return one day. The location is just PERFECT - perfect spot on Maui and there is no better spot on the property. We loved the little touches - having cold water available when we arrived (because it was HOT and HUMID), having beach chairs/towels/boogie boards available, fans in the rooms plus ceiling fans (and air conditioner, but we tried not to use that too much). This was our first Maui booking and we couldn't be happier."

  • Soo awsome we cried when we left...

    "OK, if this condo is available and you're looking for a 1br with an AMAZING ocean view just steps from world-class beaches in Kihei in a fantastically remolded condo with a terrific it NOW before someone else does!! For starters, the owner Anita is a joy to work with during all phases of planning, payment, questions, and follow-up, and helped us out not only with the condo but with our trip overall. The condo itself...even nicer than the pictures, one of the classiest and most comfortable condos I've ever been in (vacation rental or otherwise). Felt like my dream condo. The sunset we watched from the lanai on our last night blew away the photos, and my girlfriend and I agreed it was different but easily equal to the sunset we'd seen on top of Haleakala the previous kidding! Equipped as if we lived there in terms of beach stuffs (mats, chairs), kitchen stuff, etc. The complex is nice: pool was good, and the roof deck awesome (our 2nd night we grilled on one of the 2 amazing gas Weber grills and were the only ones on the roof deck). Parking was easy. I can't overstate just how fantastic the condo is, it felt more like we were staying in a friends home than a vacation rental. The decision of where to stay in Maui for some/all of a vacation is too wide to cover here, but with this my 3rd stay in South Kihei' (which I love for central location, walk to stores, and swimmibility), a few notes about this exact location: DIRECTLY across the street from Kam I beach, a beautiful, long, friendly swimming/sunning beach. I went barefoot from condo <--> beach, it's really just a few hundred feet down a sidewalk then across the road. Less than a mile north is Three's Bar/Grill (banana/mac pancakes!) Paia Fish Market, Foodland, and "The Triangle" where the younger folks dance to dj's (the Tiki bar is great too). Moreso, ABC Store is about 500 ft north of the condo, and 2-3 minutes south is a great health food store, da Kitchen Express (affordable huge lunches), Cafe O'Lei (nicer dinners and food equal to Wailea places but cheaper), a Whalers store and other shops. I can't understate how great is is to not have to jump in the car all the time. I honestly can't say enough good things about this condo, the owner, or the location...already dreaming of our next stay!!!"

    "LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION--if you want the beach and a wonderful vacation, you MUST stay here!! I rented this condo for my parents, brother and my fiance last week, and this was SO perfect in SO many ways!! Upon our arrival, we met Patty and she was amazing! She gave us really great suggestions on where to eat lunch/dinner and so helpful!! The property manager, Jeff, was also very great (we want his job! LOL)! He cleaned the pool everyday, turned over the chairs and just kept the whole place looking great! One of our favorite activities was to join the owners on the 'green' grass by the water and watch the sunset with our favorite cocktail. At the end of the grass is rocks, and its so awesome because you can see so many TURTLES!! We even bought a snorkel set so we could check them out. There is a VERY SHORT path down to the beach, im talking like 50 feet to put your feet in beautiful sand and crashing waves. My mom and I snorkeled every morning and saw TONS of sea turtles, various fishes and a super mini octopus! AWESOME. We loved the Lanai (patio). I took several naps in the red chair, just listening to the ocean and enjoying the day. The Condo was PERFECT--they had a blender, and plenty of plates/cookware! Even though there is no AC, there was plenty of wind to come through the other side that provided a wonderful breeze and just enough for on the Lanai to not blow everything away but still stay comfortable! In my opinion, if you have to have AC in Hawaii, then you might as well go to Alaska! Hawaii is perfect temps ALL YEAR LONG. This location was great--every time we left the condo it rained wherever we went, so we spent SO much time at the condo, and it was fabulous! It was really like our own backyard oasis! People in other reviews complained about the pool and noise... ummm, YOUR ON VACATION, HAVE SOME FUN and join in on the fun!! We never had any complaints!! Across the street was Cafe O Lei, and its delicious and really reasonably priced! FREDs is close and we loved it there too. Liquor store is also across the street, along with a general market and SHOPS! You must also try the Cinnamon Rolls that are across the street too!!! YUMMO! If you want to save some $$, GRILL OUT, they have 2 grass grills which are PERFECT for dinner/lunch! We grilled every day--and the condo is stocked with plenty of supplies!! To the Owners--if you ever want to sell, call me! :)"

  • Love This Place Perfect Condo Wonderful Owners

    "Aloha! This was our second visit to Maui and our second visit to this amazing Condo! The condo is a perfect size .Very clean ,very comfortable and has everything you need whether it be a day at the beach with your boogie board and beach umbrella or staying home to cook in the well equipped kitchen or BBQ at the lovely pool! The bed is so comfortable we had the best sleep after our busy days exploring the island. Our hosts of this condo were exceptionally attentive and provide all the info you need and are quick to respond to all your questions and needs. The location is perfect just a short stroll down the driveway to the beach and close to many good restaurants.We highly recommend Cafe o Lei which is just a short walk up the street and Fred's which is right next door. The grounds are kept beautiful and the pool is great!! We made a couple of trips to Lahaina and Kaanapali don't forget to visit Leoda's Pie place on your way to Lahaina (great Lime Pie). We visited Hookipa Beach where we watched the surfing and at sunset watched the Sea Turtles come up to rest on the beach (Amazing!!) There are just too many things to do I wouldn't have enough room to write. We love your Condo Drew and Amelia Thankyou for being such gracious hosts. This is our home away from home in Kihei 😊"
