The place was clean, well-kept and beautiful. We had the whole 1 BK place to ourselves. The kitchen was very well stocked and it was a comfortable stay.
We really enjoyed staying at Karen's Deck View Ohana for Two. The place is perfect for 2 people, with a full kitchen, dining area and deck. Everything is well kept, clean and organized. The deck is very spacious and has a table with 4 chairs, plus lounge chair and couch. Sitting outside for breakfast in the morning, and cocktails at night was a great way to soak in the Maui weather.
The apartment is as advertised, very conveniently located and well maintained. The lack of AC is not really an issue as Maui's climate is mild enough and fans do the rest. We really enjoyed our stay in one of the nicest and most quiet residential areas of Kihei and felt like locals for a week.
The only negative note is that the sheets had a few little stains that made us a little uncomfortable at first. It was clear that they had been washed, but still we were expecting better. (This is the only reason we don't give 5 stars)
Loved our stay at Deck View Ohana.The lanai(deck) is a real treat.Fresh air and lots of space.Enjoyed all our meals outdoors,The bed is very comfortable,which is important.Internet worked no problem.Close to beaches, shops,restaurants,etc.I would recommend this spot to friends.
This was our first time in Maui. And we spent 5 nights at Karen place.
The apartment is a two minute drive to the main street of Kihei. The deck is enclosed by trees and the view is of neighbouring homes, nice area. Snorkeling equipment and boogie boards were provided, so in general there is everything you need, that was great.
The cleaning situation wasn't very good: we saw some ants especially in the bathroom and in general furnitures were pretty old. The apartment was really hot, yes we are in tropical, true. But even with the ceiling fans, table fans (too noisy for us) and air from the windows, it wasn't enough.
Karen was nice and available, great host.
The place was nice to stay at, we had access close access to the areas we wanted to go and was quiet and calm in the evenings.
This apartment was pretty good. It's a two minute drive to the main street of Kihei although "deck view" is a little misleading. The deck is enclosed by trees and the view is of neighbouring homes. The lack of A/C was mostly made up by the abundance of fans. Everything was provided, including snorkeling equipment and boogie boards, and was in good order. In-unit instructions told us to be careful of attracting ants by leaving food out, which is reasonable given the climate but not noted in the Airbnb description, and there were a few cockroaches in the kitchen. Again I thought that was reasonable given it's Hawaii.
There was one bad thing that happened. I had bites and found bed bugs. Karen hadn't had this occur before and refunded my money for the remaining nights to turn the place up and clean everything. I'm confident she'll have them taken care of. I'd stay here again.
Karen was a fantastic host. Living in the neighborhood made us feel at home and like locals.
Exactly as described... this was perfect for our time in Maui! Although it definitely is within walking distance to the beach, we found it easier to drive down with all the beach gear. The personal fans kept us plenty cool at night, and we appreciated having access to WiFi. Overall, a great experience! :)
A very good location to everything you would ever want to see in South Kihei, I enjoyed my stay immensly. Karen had a lot of extras in the Deck View apartment that came in handy. The flowers and trees in the yard were beautiful and I enjoyed my meals on the breezy deck. To be able to have filtered water from the pitcher in the fridge was an added bonus as was the ability to walk to the beach in about 20 minutes time (for me, anyway). This cozy cottage really became home to me for the 12 days I was there and it made my stay on Maui very memorable.
