A full bath with tub/shower, separate vanity sink area, in-unit washer and dryer and enough closet and storage space to un-pack, stash your suit cases away and totally un-wind.

The positives - studio was a reasonable size, kitchen well equipped and a few extra beach items provided for use which we didn't use but was a nice touch. It's also in a good location across from the beach and just a short stroll to the shops and restaurants.
What could be improved - the front door security sticks quite a bit so it's easy to mistake it for being locked when it's not. The kitchen cutlery and dishes need a good wash as we found they had not been cleaned properly and we had to rewash everything before use. The fan had a pull
cord which broke the first time we went to turn it on, as it had rusted through. And we found the lock box containing the key to the apartment unlocked when we arrived which was quite concerning also.
Overall we are sorry to say that we were disappointed with the experience at this property in Kihei.
I'm sorry...it sounds like you didn't really enjoy your very short 3 night stay in Kihei. We did receive your email regarding the maintenance issues that you experienced. It's very unfortunate that you waited until you departed to let us know! We would have done everything we could to fix things right away.We have had over 55 positives reviews of happy guests in the studio! These happy guests are often the ones to tell us when we have a issue with something. As I'm sure you can appreciate anything metal so close to the salty ocean air will need on going fixes. Chris made a simple adjustment on the screen door and a replacement pull chain has been installed on the ceiling fan. As for your issue with the dishes and cutlery, I'm afraid that the good intentions of a previous airbnb guest who washed up and put away in the kitchen may have come up short on doing the job to your expectations. We would never intentionally put dirty dishes or cutlery in the cabinets and drawers. We do take pride in our housekeeping skills.
We do hope that you will consider returning to Maui again.

We simply loved this Studio and would definitely book this again on our next Maui trip - it was perfect for us. Very clean, supereasy to find and fully equipped (Kitchen, Washing machine/dryer, beach equipment). Designated parking spot, grocery stores, restaurants/fast food places, beach access, surf school - all next to the location. Rosalie & Chris are awesome hosts - they answer immediately and help proactively when needed. Thanks for the nice stay!
This place was exactly as we expected. It was close to the beach and fully stocked with everything we needed. The condo had wonderful ocean views and was close to tons of restaurants and the beach. Thanks Chris and Rosalie for hosting us in your wonderful condo.
Apartment was exactly as described. Very close proximity to lovely beaches and great restaurants and food trucks. Convenient to most of the key sites in Maui. The apartment had many amenities including a cooler (great for the Road to Hana) and snorkeling gear! Host was very responsive.
숙소가 해변이랑 가까워 매우 편했고, 경치도 좋았습니다.
숙소내에는 비치용 의자, 스토쿨링 장비, 요리용 소스등이 완비 되어 있어서 불편함 없이 이용하기 좋았습니다.
단지 침대가 접이식이고, 조금 좁은 것 외에는 전체적으로 만족도가 높은 숙소 였습니다.
This condo is perfect for a Kihei visit! The pictures reflect the condo accurately. The bed is comfortable and, even though it pulls down into the living room, there is still plenty of space to move about. The kitchen has everything you need to make light or heavy meals; the refrigerator is plenty big enough for your groceries. The condo is right across the street from a great beach and close enough to many beaches on the south shore that you can beach hop to! Checking in was a breeze and all the instructions that were sent prior to our arrival ensured a streamlined arrival. Plenty of restaurants, bars and grocery stores within walking distance. It was also nice to have a laundry in the condo. Lastly, the condo comes with everything you need to take to the beach: snorkel, chairs, cooler. Would gladly stay here again!
My wife and I stayed here for 4 days. The place is clean, comfortable, and well-situated. We didn't meet our host, but we didn't have any problems and everything was prepared for our arrival.
