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..

Maui Condo # 612 was ok, but not bad for the money

The condo was easy to find on the drive over from the airport. I came in at night....so if you arrive during the day it should be even easier. The complex is nice, and right on the ocean! The beach is not all that great but it is a great walk and view. The condo is new, with an updated modern kitchen and appliances....unfortunately the carpet is very old in the bedrooms and dirty.....ceramic tile throughout the family room and kitchen. Beds are nice, but need to be updated with new mattresses... After two nights of sleep it was a rough sleep and could use more pillows. The bathrooms are nice, but a leak in the second bathroom by the toilet. Plenty of towels and that was a huge plus ! The ocean view from the bedroom is very nice and the sounds of the birds in the morning was incredibly awesome! Pool area was very nice, many friendly people you'll meet throughout the complex.....a very nice office staff as well. The location is great with many places to walk to or a short drive to almost any choice of restaurant and a few small shopping malls. (The location all in all was great) It surely is not worth over $200 per night but under $160 would be appropriate for the condition and all around cleanliness. I was able to find a good deal so I'm not complaining too much. I would recommend to all friends if the price was under $160 per night, or if it was much cleaner with updated bedrooms/carpet $230 would be excellent.

Short walk to a couple fast food restaurants and a mall....but a longer walk to better night life and dinning.

Kihei Keeper

This was our second stay at Kauhale Makai, and it was even better than the first time, mostly due to the room being on an upper floor. (the 6th) This time I came to Maui with my parents and my brother with his wife, we travel separately living in different cities, and all booked different rooms. We all loved the rooms as they are close to the beach, (150yds) just up the street from downtown Kihei, (walking distance) but I like best that the rooms I have seen are 1 bdrm condo's rented out by the owners, and the staff do a great job of maintaining them. If I don't stay with family when I come to Maui, I will stay at Kauhale Makai in the future.
