Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a great location on Maui and a great unit within the condo complex. Chris and Rosalie made the process very simple and user friendly and commuicated well and in a timely fashion. Over-all this is a great value and a unit I would stay at again.

  • Stayed here for 1 week at the end of January. Really great location - view of the ocean and very short walk to the beach. We didn't know anything about Maui when we picked this place. After driving all around the island during our stay, we were very happy that we picked the best spot. Good balance of being somewhat in the middle of everything while also being by some wonderful beaches. We were completely lucky that we picked this place - after ready Maui Revealed, they indicated to stay at Kamaole Beach or further south due to HAB (harmful algal blooms) in Northern Kihei.

    The apartment was the perfect size for a couple. We used the kitchen for almost all our dinners and the washer and dryer to clean our clothes. It was such a comfort being able to wash our clothes and not having to overpack since we didn't want to check in any luggage.

    This place is within easy walking distance of a natural food store and a short drive to the closest Foodland (don't go to the Safeway, had rotting food and was not well stocked). It's also really easy to jump onto Piilani highway and skip over the Kihei traffic.

    The windy afternoons were nice to cool off the apartment. Since it's a corner apartment, we just had to open the windows on two sides to get a nice breeze.

  • Rosalie and Chris were excellent hosts to us, they communicated very fast by emails or phone calls, in particular when we arrived at the Condo and became a bit confused in how to find and get in the unit. We stayed at the Kihei Akahi Studio C301. From the balcony there is a stretch where we can see the ocean and the sunset among the palms and it is really gorgeous. The unit is very well appointed and clean. This is literally 5 min from Kamahoe II beach. Restaurants and malls within short distance. We highly recommend it, we found it as an optimal balance among budget, quality and facilities.

  • Well appointed condo, a little on the small side (had a murphy bed as the main bed) but more than adequate for our needs. A special selling point has to be the balcony which looks out onto the ocean, and on which we were able to watch some amazing sunsets. Can thoroughly recommend it.

    December 2013
  • The studio apartment is as described. Located conveniently on S. Kihei Road, it is directly opposite Kamaole Beach II and walking distance to food choices and shops.

    The condo is fairly secure and neighbors are quiet during the evenings.

    Chris was hospitable whenever I had questions and even kindly extended a late check out for us. You will have all you need for a day out at the beach except for renting snorkelling equipment.

    I would stay again if I do visit Maui again.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Rosalie and Chris's place. The location could not be more perfect, and the apartment was stocked with the essentials we needed for a week long stay. Rosalie and Chris were very responsive to any questions we had, and were nice enough to mail us an item we had forgotten. A great place to stay for a Maui getaway!

    September 2013
  • This is a great place in a great location. Just two minutes walk from the beach, five minutes from restaurants and shops, but still quiet. The apartment is fully equiped with anything you might ever need - full kitchen, fridge, wifi, lots of DVDs, washing machine including detergent... And you can really see the sunset from the balcony! Also it was really clean, you notice that the apartment is professionally managed.

  • We had a wonderful time in Maui and this was in large part due to Rosalie and Chris' Studio. We loved the ocean view on the Lanei. The 3rd floor is also the perfect height because of the landscape and close to the ground for carrying things up the steps. There are elevators (I guess) but we liked using the stairs.
    The studio had everything we needed. My wife reiterated this many times during our stay. It was so comfortable we didn't use the A/C once or the TV.
    The studio was a perfect location to the ocean, shopping, and nearby adventures. I loved having all the kitchen utensils right there: everything from a rice cooker to a blender. With the two fans in the studio and a constant breeze off of the ocean, that kept the airy feel of the studio.
    I ashamedly did not read the 11:00 check out time properly and it caused some inconvenience with cleaning the studio before other guests. Rosalie was patient with us and we thank her with that.

  • Rosalie and Chris' place was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for a week's stay in Maui. Conveniently located to most everything in Kihei, there's a nice snorkel spot (Kamaole Beach 2) just down the street and the Kihei Akahi is also nicely equipped with grills in the pool area and a rinse-off area in the parking lot (for when you come back from the beach across the street).

    The unit itself was very airy (best to shut the doors in the afternoon as it does get very windy from the tradewinds) and the murphy bed did not feel too big or too small. Perfect for a young couple like us. Included in-unit laundry was a godsend and let us get our clothes cleaned after our adventures - detergent and fabric softener sheets were provided. Also, some essentials were also included in the unit which was nice and we didn't have to buy a lot of things. Kitchen was well-equipped and we were able to prepare and eat most of our meals on Maui in the unit.

    The view from the unit is great and every evening we got to watch the gorgeous colours of the sunset set over the ocean. Great cozy unit to launch daily adventures in Maui from or to just relax at home in the evenings.

  • This place is exactly as advertised and has excellent value for money! We especially liked that the studio is on the 3rd floor because this gives you more privacy (and a very nice sunset view). Also big bonus points for the in-room WiFi. The studio is clean and airy: With two fans and several windows that can be opened we never had to use the AC. Kitchen and bathroom are well equipped, and there is also all the usual beach gear that we used on several occasions.

    The location is great: Several shopping places nearby (including a Snorkel Bob's), Malu'aka beach just a short drive away, and also a pretty good base for exploring all of Maui. The only gripe we had was that on the last two nights people were smoking in the ground floor apartment and we had to shut down the fans to stop the smell from drifting into our studio.

    We never had the chance to meet our hosts Rosalie and Chris, but they were very friendly and responsive to all our email requests. We were also allowed to stay an hour beyond checkout time, which saved us from a prolongued hangout at the airport.
