Our first room was so musty it reminded us of an old wet basement. The carpet, bedding, towels, etc all smelled musty, including the air conditioner. We called to ask of a remedy as soon as we moved in but all we received was "sorry". After another day of calling to look for a remedy we were offered another room. Yay! After we confirmed that we would take it, we were informed of a $95 room cleaning fee. Remind you, we called the management company as soon as we moved in! The room layout was not the best, but the view was pretty amazing I have to say. The rest of our family stayed at Maui Schooner down the road and for a better price. It was a much nicer place to be, I just wish they didn't sell out an hour before we completed our booking.
This was a good place to say to save some $, we liked the area we were in, but the condo wasn't anything really amazing. We were on a ground floor without a view so it was a bit disappointing. overall, a good place for the cost. I did like that it was stocked with the basics, as well as beach towels and chairs, boogie boards, etc, so that was nice.
It was a good deal that i got and we had a blast rite next to the beach and a nice bar triangle not so far away loved it overall!
My Girlfriend and I really wanted to do something adventurous so we booked a room here a couple weeks before time and for the price we paid the room was astounding. Although we didn't spend as much time in the room, it served its purpose, had a very nice lanai and close to the bbq pits/ beach to walk around. Very clean place as well!
I ordered up an Oceanfront and Got an Ocean view. The company did reimburse me though. The complex was having work done which was very noisy, but it was conducted during the day, which was okay, because I didn't plan to spend my day in, but rather away touring the island. My unit was a little on the rough side of being in need of a remodel. Parking spaces were very narrow.
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!
Excellent location, clean and mostly updated kitchen and bathroom. Bedroom and living room could be more updated
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.
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.
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!
It's not the most luxury place for a honeymoon. But we loved it. It was great for the price we paid. We were close to everything and we didn't mind the drive into lahiana and other town. Our stay was amazing, we enjoyed staying here. We would come back again and recommend people. One thing that I was not as happy about was there was no wifi. Unless you have a password that the lady on the phone told us only the owner property have it. My husband use up 90% of his Internet while we were there. We only had iPhones and iPad on us.
Everything was great, the beach in front, pool, jacuzzi, full kitchen and a great location.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The complex is always clean. Our particular room came with a nice assortment of items for the beach (chairs, umbrella, toys, boogie board, etc...). It is an older building, but they have done a good job keeping it updated. It was nice to have a foodmart club card left on the bar for us to use. It saved us nearly $100 off our original $300 shopping bill. Nice pool, kiddie pool, and hot tub on the property. There's also grass volleyball court, horse shoes, and shuffle board court on the premise. Also has a nice grilling area (unfortunately we didn't get a chance to utilize it). I gave it 4 stars only because it doesn't have all the (overpriced) ammenities of the upscale resorts, but has all the comforts of a regular home. I would certainly recommend staying here.
At first we were given a unit facing the parking lot and from the corner of the balcony we could see the ocean in the distance. We had paid for an ocean view and we were not happy with the room. However, after making a couple of phone calls we were given a much more satisfying room with nicer view of the facility and ocean. The complaint was that each night we were smelling cigarette smoke in our room (coming through the vent system). We told the office and they were aware of the issue and trying to find out who was breaking the rules and smoking in their unit. Also, we checked in on July 4th and no one was in the office due to the holiday. This made it difficult to check into a room and would have been impossible had we not had our cell phone with us. The amenities in the room we had were very nice (full kitchen with needed equipment), but all units are not equal so beware of that issue.
We had a great 7 day stay at this condo complex. Our room was very clean, modern & well stocked when we arrived. It had a keyless entry which made our late arrival very convenient. All cookware and appliances for cooking were provided, and there were beach items (towels, boogie boards, etc) in the closet. Tons of closet space & drawer storage! The interior was comfortable & nicely decorated. This is a ground level room located toward the rear of the courtyard. Not much of an ocean view, but the courtyard was beautiful! The room was convenient to the parking lot, and didn't require stairs or elevator to access. The courtyard was beautifully maintained daily, and had a putting green, swimming pool, wading pool, hot tub, volleyball net & dual shuffleboard court. The ocean was just a short walk across the lawn and dunes. The beach is a nice hard sand walking beach, with lots of washed up coral to investigate. It is not a swimming beach. The nice sandy swimming beaches begin about a mile south at Cove Park and southward from there. There are a series of gas grills in the center of the courtyard which were meticulously maintained. We cooked several meals on them during the week. I was a great place to cook & meet your neighbors! The condo complex has several laundry rooms available, and there is a concierge desk to help plan your activities (and get you good discounts too!) The condo complex is in a quieter area, away from the touristy areas, but is a central, convenient driving distance to just about everything. It is only 20 minutes from the airport & large shopping areas of Kahului. It is about 15 minutes from the Ma'alaea Harbor activities. Our favorite beach was Big Beach, all the way down on the south end of the island, and even that was only 20 minutes away. There are a number of local grocery stores, restaurants, craft markets, etc, just south of the complex, some even in walking distance. We took the Road to Hana Tour, and they conveniently picked us up right at the condo complex. This is a "must do" tour when visiting this island! If you are looking for a nice peaceful place to base your Maui vacation from, the Kauhale Makai - Maui Condo & Home is a great choice!
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!
The condo was excellent, some of the people were rude, some were not sociable, but my overall stay was a good
Everithing was great.Location,view,service,and very clean.
we booked this place for the price and location on the beach, and thought it would be cheaper to cook food ourselves rather than eat out for every meal. Loved the condo, very roomy. The beach it sits on is not nice, it's small and rocky and someone told me it was downstream from a sewage outlet. We ended up driving every day about 7 miles to a really nice beach. I think we saved money overall by booking here and driving to more expensive beach resorts on A public beach. We would probably stay here again if the price was right
The concierge in the lobby was a plus we didn't expect. They even called our room the day after check-in to see if we needed help with anything. Our room had all the comforts of home, groceries weren't too expensive as we stopped at WalMart in Kahului. Supermarket Times right up the street has DVD rentals when you want to stay in. The beach is a stroll, but it keeps everything quiet around the rooms in the morning. Assigned parking spaces and a pool/laundry key are +++. The staff was polite and very professional. Our only maintenance issue was handled promptly and without our having to stay around.
