Perfect For a Family of Five

Location, Location for a family on the go, its not to far and not to close. For those times of rest the beach is right there, but not so close that you are a nervous wreck watching your kids. Very clean. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking. The only thing that threw us off was the TP supply. Other than that it was perfect!

Great Location

This condo complex is at the north end of Kihei, which makes driving to various location a breeze. Going down various beaches along Kihei, Wailea, and Mackena are all within 10-15 minutes, as well as going to Kahului and Lahaina is a short drive. Complex is a little older in appearance but kept in good shape and clean. Gas grills and jacuzzi are a plus for making dinners after a day out, and a good place to meet other friendly travelers. Condo condition and amenities vary according to owner usually.

Safeway and a complex of various shops including Hilo Hattie are just a short drive near the complex toward Pilani Hwy; it's a good way to avoid traffic going to Kihei Road to other supermarkets.

Good home away from home

It's a nice condo, close to Kihei beaches. The unit is on the first floor and the lanai is practically next to the parking lot. That makes for easy loading/unloading, but also made me feel a little unsafe. Very quiet, didn't hear the neighbors when we were in the unit.

Family getaway

We had a great time. The condo was more than we expected. The clerk and all staff were very helpful. The condo had great amenities with items we could use on the beach, which was nice since we did not have to rent or buy them. The concierge was very helpful. We plan on going back and will stay here again. Everyone we talked to.could not believe the real we got for a rental car, condo and airfare! Thank you again, it was a memorable family vacation!

Surprising

I didn't know what to expect but it was perfect for a Single traveler or a family looking for value. Positives: Nice room Kitchen with all utensils ( blender as well) as well As a oven,fridge, and microwave. DVD player Close to beach Washer/ dryer (able to wash and dry clothes) Consierge service Own parking spot Close to beach Main office friendly Very close to supermarkets when buying food Air conditioning Negatives: Front office available only to 6pm.. No computer service at main lobby. So I Couldn't print out my boarding pass. No hbo/show time/ Cinemax for those who stay in.. Do have cable channels. Residence not very talkative or outgoing Overall a great place to stay for the single or married Couple looking at something affordable. Not a 5 Star resort. But I would stay again. Also recommend To families on a budget..

Nice anniversary trip to paradise

The room is more than I expected. The view is excellent (we stay on the sixth floor, slightly facing inland, but the view of the garden, the pool, and the ocean are al clear). Since it was our first time to Maui, I did not know which area is best, but I believed our place in Kihei was perfect, as all the shoppings and restaurants are within 5 minutes drive. On our trip to Lahaina area, we saw terrible traffic against ours on the way back in the afternoon. Same thing happens when we took the road to Hana, we saw heavy cross traffic coming from Kahului, again on the way back. I wish we can stay longer, but well, back to the business of making a living !!!!
