"We stayed for a week during the end of July, and every expectation was exceeded by the accommodations, the development itself, and location in Kihei. The unit is well appointed, clean, and spacious... Traveling as two couples, we felt as if we were right at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and utensils, so feel confident in stocking up at the grocery store! The back patio, or lanai, is perfect for meals at any time of the day, and a short stroll from one of several grill stations that you find throughout the Maui Kamaole development, including both pool areas, and in each parking lot as well. The grills are gas and of high quality, so we really enjoyed cooking steaks and burgers during our stay, and will plan even more home cooked meals during our next stay. It should also be noted that the unit is stocked with towels, sheets, and nearly every imaginable amenity that you would stock in your home, even down to the best beach chairs that we have experienced- not exaggerating, the chair has a head rest and great storage... We're buying a set ourselves for our house. Speaking of beach, the unit is a 10 minute walk to a series of beaches across the street, so you will be able to easily enjoy the ocean. We recommend taking the car down the street 30 seconds - literally- to the Mana Kai Maui hotel with its public beach access parking. There are two restaurants within a stone's throw of that location and the parking makes it easy to carry chairs and all the supplies that you need to enjoy the beach without lugging everything down the street. If beach is not your thing, the two pools at Maui Kamaole are terrific. Both are closely located to the unit itself, so you will be able to easily debate which one is your favorite. When traveling as two couples, you should note that the second bedroom was converted from a space that appears to have been an office. It is very snug, but as the bathroom is directly across from the doors, it works. If you're traveling with children, this second room is ideal. I'd like to conclude with a note on the location- it is superb! You are centrally located to the charming strip of Kihei, which felt like a very inviting and low key beach town where you can completely relax, as well as to Wailea, which is definitely more upscale and offers some strong shopping and dining options. Both areas are within a 2 minute to 10 minute drive. A huge thank you to our hosts- we cannot wait to return next year!"
