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!

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!

Good values & clean

We were nervous coming here but it all turned out really nice. This place operates like a time-shared. Each unit is own by different owner and some units are updated and some are not. Make sure you do a walk through before accepting. The ladies at the front desk has nothing to do with the condo. They are there to hand you the room combo, facility key, and the phone number of the condo management company. You have call to get any help. The room was really clean. It has all the beach stuffs for us to use (i.e. 4 chairs, umbrella, boogie board, beach towels, inflatable toys, beach ball, etc). It was a real plus. The only thing you need is to rent the snorkel gears from local shops for $1.5/day. There are no daily maid service. The location is not so great. The complex is next to the beach but it's separated by a football field - can't build on it for some reason. There are no one on this stretch of the beach. It's about 3 miles from the nearest tourist traps. Down the street in the other direction is little shady.

perfect little getaway!

We stayed for 9 days and enjoyed every bit of it. The putting green was a big hit with our 12 year old son, the hot tub was perfect at the end of a long beach or hiking day! The staff was super helpful and accommodating! Mahalo!

relaxing

this condo was very comfortable and user friendly. the condo was next to the pool and bbq area which was very convenient, however, i disagree with the desription that was given to us. they told us it was ocean front, but it really isnt. from our patio you cant see the ocean at all. you have to walk a little bit to get to the ocean. had i been told that i wouldnt see the ocean from my room then i probably wuld have booked a room on a higher level. also in this particular condo the sofa bed was not really comfortable. the underside of the bed has pillows taped to the mattress which caused the bed to be lumpy. all in all, the condo is centrally located and convenient.

Customer very poor and not helpful !

We could not use the beach,their was no shore. The grass ended from the Hotel/Condo about 100 yards,then a small drop of 10 feet to a rocky shore.Maked reservations for Zip Line three months in advance. This was not a nice place to stay. My wife triped as she entered the office and the employees started to laugh, my wife twisted her foot,which turned blue. Later we talked to the office lady and she told us everyone trips over the same step all the time. Later we talked to the lady at the front desk and she told us they would not pay for any medicals bills. We arrived a little early and the cleanning lady was about finished,we called the office person and she got mad that we were only put our suitecases in the condo but in a very rude way she then said it was ok to leave our baggage.
