"My wife and I waited 20 years to return to Maui since we last visited for our honeymoon, and we came with three boys in tow (ages 11, 12 and 14). We could not be happier with our decision to choose Walt and Carol's unit. The location is exactly where we wanted to be which is across the street from the beach (away from the road, but close enough to walk), a short walk from large resorts as well as from the shops and restaurants in Kihei.
The unit itself was impeccably maintained with many personal touches, and it was loaded with all the items we would have otherwise had to pack for a beach vacation - beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, water shoes, snorkeling gear, toys, coolers, etc. That really saved us from having to bring anything but our swimsuits and suntan lotion. In addition, the kitchen had great appliances and all the utensils we needed to make some home-cooked meals, and the washer and dryer were top notch. Finally, there was plenty of room for the five of us to spread out and relax. The door and shutters to the bedroom loft kept that bedroom cool and provided privacy even when someone was downstairs watching one of the TVs. Every item Walt and Carol put in their description of the property and their unit can be taken at face value. They also provided in advance of our arrival a lengthy self-made guide of all the places they recommend which we heavily leveraged throughout our trip.
The weather was fantastic the entire week, and we will always remember where we were when the Cleveland streak of sports futility came to an end. Go Cavs!!! If I only knew over the last 45 years that I just had to be in Maui for one of our teams to win a championship! The boys are already asking if we need to go back in October since the Tribe is playing some good baseball right now.
We're hoping it doesn't take us 20 more years to get back, but even then, I know where we will be staying. Mahalo Walt and Carol for having such a great place and for making our trip hassle free!"
