We had a great stay here. The beach which was within a minutes walk and one of the best in the area. Family friendly and very safe. Additionally, the main strip near by was filled with restaurants and a vibrant atmosphere. Romelle was very helpful and visited us after we arrived and made great suggestions that made the trip more memorable and fun. The apartment itself was clean and well stocked. If we were to go back to Maui, this will most certainly be the place we would stay. Highly recommend this unit for anyone who wants to visit the sunny side of Maui!
We really enjoyed the stay at this lovely condo. The host was very nice and very accessible. Her friend Heidi was lovely and recommend many local gems for us to check out. this location is ideal if you want get a verity of local food. Everything is with in walking distance. The beach across the street is beautiful and Calm enough for my young kids. One draw back is that the building is not wheelchair or stroller friendly since There are no alternative to the stair.
Listing was 100% as advertised and more - everything you need for the beach, and for cooking/grilling afterward - Romelle was a great host!
We had a great experience. The condo is located at some great beaches and Romelle was really helpful in giving us some tips for things to do. The condo was really clean and well maintained. There was a ton of beach gear to use and it is actually pretty nice beach gear.
Romelle was a wonderful host and her condo was perfect for us! There was everything we needed for our trip: guide books, snorkeling equipment, beach chair, towels, umbrellas, and a beach mat. The lanai is huge and it is where we spent most of the time we weren't at the beach. Romelle stopped by shortly after we arrived to help familiarize us with her place and the area. She made herself really available if we needed her, but we never did. If we return to this part of Maui it is very likely we'll rent her condo again.
Romelle is a gracious and lovely host. Her condo is very comfortable and homey. You are in the thick of Kihei, but the condo is quiet and right across the street from a beautiful beach and within walking distance of some amazing food. There are a lot of rules and paperwork to fill out aside from your usual Airbnb booking and you have to pay the taxes separately through paypal which charges you. It didn't bother us, but it might not be some people's bag. We would love to stay again!
Thank you Megan for your time and submitting the review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your honey! Please come back again, we would love to see you again in Maui.
Aloha & Mahalo,
Yes, Megan is right about the Hawaii state & transient taxes are paid separately to me, otherwise Airbnb reports it as income and I get taxed on the taxes! I'm very upfront from the beginning so you know exactly what you can expected, so there are no surprises.
Most people understand and it's a non issue. All the equipment I provide; snorkel gear, umbrellas, mats, cooler, noodles, boogie boards,etc. saves you money in equipment rentals.
About the Host, Romelle
I live in Kihei, Maui. I love Maui and the ocean! Especially since the water is warm year around, so I snorkel, swim, kayak, paddle and dive. I also love to hike. There are some great waterfall hikes here.
My job is a corporate meeting planner and travel director, which I love to do.
If you want to know places to snorkel or hikes, I'll be happy to share the special places with you!
