Great Kihei Location
The condo was exactly as described and nicer than what you see in the photos! Rooms were very spacious, and our kids reported that the pull out sofa and chair were very confortable. It fit our family of 5 more than comfortably. The condo is only a few minutes walk from Kam 3 and a few more minutes to Kam 2! We utilized the ice chest and chairs every day - enough for everyone. Overall the place was well appointed and more than we expected. Management was very communicative as well. We plan to rent this unit again next year!

Nice condo close to great beaches and sunset viewlocation
A nice upgraded condo unit that has all you need to cook and drink for people of 8. This condo is walkable three Kamaole beaches and we liked the most among all other beaches we visited to. Makena a beach is 15 mins away from this unit but that beach didn't suit for our families due to strong currents plus you will have to pay fee per head and vehicle. We have paid the fee, spent only 15 mins and returned to Kamaole beach again. Fortunately we are able to see turle in beach 3. This unit also 15-20 min drive to Harbor where you board snorkeling tour boats and 45 mins drive to Kanapali beach and Luau we attended at Sheraton. Overall we have enjoyed a lot in Kamaole beaches.

Modern Maui Stay
This rental was perfect for our group (3 adults, 4 kids: 13 yr old, 11 yr old, 7 yr old, and 4 yr old). The rental is exactly as pictured. The unit was clean and comfortable. Very close to the Kamaole Beach Park III (about a 5-6 minute walk) and I like how they have an outdoor shower at the base of the property. It is on the second floor, so be prepared to carry your luggage up a flight of outdoor stairs. Both bathrooms are showers only, no bathtubs. There are plenty of bed sheets, pillows and pillow covers, as well as bathroom towels. The kitchen is fully stocked, even with glass tupperware of all different sizes. The beach gear was well equipped, although we did not have a cooler (which was listed as part of their beach gear). I contacted the owner about this, and within the same day, they brought over a brand new cooler. We arrived to the rental around 7-8pm in the evening, so when we stopped by the main office to pick up a parking pass, they were closed. The next morning, there was a note on our rental vehicle saying to stop by the office during their business hours to pick up the parking pass. Since we were going to be out and about before they opened, I contacted the owner to let them know this, and they kindly offered to drop off the parking pass along with the cooler. Regarding parking, we were able to park our vehicle very close to our unit every day. Some things that need improvement: The AC in the living room really didn't help to cool the room down. Even with the ceiling fan on, it didn't get as cool as we liked it to be. The AC units are really loud in both bedrooms, but they cooled the rooms just fine. Even the ceiling fans were good enough to cool the bedrooms down. The beach towels that are provided are the quick-drying type (4 are provided, plus 2 other "towels" but felt more like beach mats as they were much more stiffer). So if you prefer the traditional beach towel, bring your own. They provided powder laundry detergent, but bring your own laundry detergent pods if you prefer. Also, bring your own dryer sheets for the dryer as they do not provide these. Overall, it was a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Overall a great place to stay, excellent location, the spacious/freshly remodeled apartment! Air conditioning was a bit too loud, some of us had trouble sleeping with the sound. Also, the cooking pans/pots a bit too small for the crowd of six. We noticed broken beach umbrellas and reached out to the Management and they were super fast and helpful and brought replacements within 2 hrs. Same with extra sheets/blankets. We’re delivered on request. Highly recommend this place for a family with kids/for the party of 4-7ppl Only wish the kitchen had a few more pots/pans available.

We were very happy with the location, beach proximity, and condition of the VRBO. The unit was very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. The beach across the street was as perfect as it gets. We got to swim near the turtles every day. The grounds of the VRBO were meticulously maintained. There were grounds people every day cleaning the pool, and landscaping. The patio was nice to sit on in the mornings eating breakfast. The pictures on the website accurately represented this property. I would highly recommend this unit.

Host is the best
Had a great time and place was everything it said it was. Most impressed with his response time. Very clean I will list only cons which aren't big cons at all... need better pot set but we bought a new one and left for next guest. Wish had a bigger couch for family to gather around or add another chair to living room.We made it work.... but everything else is what you need! Plenty of chairs for beach gas grill and tons more. Overall the very best host you can ask for

Great Vacation Spot
We really enjoyed our stay. Location is great--right across the street from the beach, walking distance to lots of food, and beautiful pool in the complex. The condo itself is nicely appointed, and everything was first rate. Thanks for helping us to have a wonderful family vacation!

Best couch beds ever!
So location, amenities, decor are all top notch. The sunset view from patio….fantastic. The beach gear including chairs, umbrella, towels, boogie boards and even snorkel gear….couldn’t have asked for more. But the fold out couch beds….these were unbelievably comfortable! Tell your mother-in-law or teenagers not to worry, they will probably sleep better here verses their own beds! Thank you again for the stay! Ohh…and the website for recommendations is way cool as well!

Property came as shown. Beautiful, modern amenities. Few very minor things were quickly addressed by the super responsive owner. Grade A experience for my boys 12&14 first time. 6 of us total. 4 kids loved the downstairs pullout couch and love seat. Slept most every night there although had a great bedroom with a king bed. Would definitely come back. Mahalo

We love how everything is exactly how it's advertised. The condo is nicely renovated, decor & appliances are great, and beds are comfortable.Only a couple small issues... -The AC in the bedrooms are perfect but in the living room it wasn't as cold as we would have liked.-The remote for the ceiling fan downstairs also controls the fan upstairs. So, we were constantly having to compete with the room downstairs.-We love how much parking space there was but wish we were told upon check in to get a parking pass from the office. We found a paper on our windshield the 3rd night that we must register our car or risk being towed. Overall, we loved our stay and we will highly recommend it to our friends & family who visit Maui.

Our family enjoyed the location and the recent renovations. Very clean upon arrival. Lots of coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas. Everything was as advertised. Small issue for us was the loudness from the air conditioners and the kitchen and living room area did not cool down to our liking with cooking with the one there currently. Bedrooms were fine but loud as well.

First of all, the pictures are very accurate. We loved every bit of this well-kept updated condo. The view from the balcony was of the pool and you could see a little bit of the beach. It's in a great location off of S. kihei and close to everything. We were only a 5-10 minute drive to Wailea and 25 min drive from the airport. I loved the kitchen and the boys were quite comfortable on the pull out couches.The only issue we did have was with the AC unit in the living room. It was hot two nights and we couldn't get it to cool off the room. The room is too big for the wall unit.But other than that, it was great. Beach towels were offered and kitchen amenities were great.
