I love to share the fabulous island of Maui with their guests!
We had a great stay in Kihei, and this apartment was perfect for traveling with a two-year-old. Just a short drive from a beach (Kamaole III) that's often very calm, great for wading with babies, and full of sea turtles. We used the gas grill quite a bit for fresh fish, and the covered porch was a perfect place to eat dinner--very few mosquitoes in Kihei, it seems. Yes, there are dogs and children upstairs, but that didn't bother us. It's small, but clean, well-stocked with cooking equipment, and the large porch more than makes up for a rather compact indoor space. You can borrow the snorkeling equipment, coolers and beach umbrellas that are sitting right there on the porch.
The directions were very easy. The apartment had everything we needed and more. The lanai was my favorite with the tropical landscape and gecko visitors. The unit was very clean and street parking was never a problem. Great central location and within walking distance to the ocean!
I would definitely come back!
The location was tied with the lanai. It was minutes away from so many great beaches and we put the snorkeling gear to use every day. It was a huge bonus to have the gear, beach towels, and coolers available.
Instructions to get to the Property was very well documented. With Host's Instructions it would have been very Hard to find the house when its Dark. Never meet the host but everything was well documented. Property is well maintained and all appliances worked perfectly and was helpful. Neighborhood is very quite but people living up stairs where a little problematic as they kept banging the Floor during the the Morning hours but during night there was no noise so we got proper sleep. Wood Floor leading up to the Property needs a little maintenance as me and my wife both tripped few times during our stay. Would rent again if we visit Maui again.
Great place! Close to everything. Stores/beach/restaurants all walkable. The apartment is good size and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The family upstairs is a little noisy but nothing out of the ordinary for someone who lives in a city apartment building. All in all a great experience.
We absolutely loved our stay, so close to the beach without having a lot of tourists right outside your door ... Amazing place !!!!!!!
The room was as described, and very comfortable. Our favorite feature was the deck, private and a great place to sit and relax, especially when it rains out. Didn't meet Karen, but email communication was fast and instructions clear. The apartment is well stocked with all things, shampoos, towels, spices, and all things you need to cook at home. We also used beach toys, snorkeling gear, beach mats. Thanks! Things we didn't like: the family upstairs. The woman was mildly rude / annoyed at us parking in the driveway to unload the car. The dogs run around on the upstairs deck so anything left on our deck table overnight was covered with sand and dog hair falling through the cracks. One night we had to move the table in a hurry when we saw a rain of sand and hair descending on our food. Yak! AC would also be a huge improvement. We understand the electricity cost, etc., but even with all the fans the place got stuffy, especially at night when we had to chose between cool air or sleeping (3 fans make a lot of noise).
The unit was exactly as advertised: located on a not so busy street for privacy and just 10 minutes walk from the beach. We enjoyed a lot of items available for our use (saved a lot by cooking at home :) ).
Great time, really like that it had a lot of items there for our use. Great location!
Comfortable and clean place with all the essentials. Very good location and nice neighborhood.
Nice place, well equiped and close to the beach.
