Easily the best airbnb experience I've ever had. Carol was great, her house was gorgeous and clean with snorkel and boogeyboard gear and great beaches a short drive away. I can't recommend this place enough.
We had a great stay at Carol's place, she made us feel at right at home. Also, the room is spacious and has a wonderful view. Totally recommended!
We stayed in Carols A206 block in Lahaina and it was perfect. The place was very clean, rooms really spacious, bed very comfortable and had all the facilities/essentials you would need for your trip: good quality towels, utensils, blankets, beach balls even. We even arrived 1.5 hours earlier than check in but were still able and allowed to check in. Carol is very quick to respond to any queries you might have about the place. It was very close to shops and had a great location in Lahaina. Overall we were more than impressed.
Great place to stay! Great hosts and comfy bed. Stayed one night and I left early in the morning but appreciated my stay. We can see the ocean directly from the room and it's in a great location in Maui.
I would recommends this place anytime. Thanks Carol and Todd for sharing your home.
The Place was really nice and a lot bigger than the pictures make it look. There was also 2 bathrooms which i did not realize when booking. it Can get a little warm during the day as this unit does not have A/C just ceiling fans and a ton of windows. The kitchen and living room area were also good size. The location is great. Its right across the street from a ton of hotels and Airport Beach. There is also 2 smaller community pools in the condo complex. The complex seemed about half full and the pools were not crowded at all.
Beautiful setting and porch, great hosts, comfy family house. would recommends Carol's place anytime.
We stayed at Carols place at Aina Nalu for 5 nights with four adults and two kids! Loved it. It was really clean and completely baby proof. We stayed in i201. Carol even let us do a late check out so the little ones could take a nap. The only complaint is that the dishwasher was broken. Loved having laundry machines in the unit and the pool on the property was great. The parking is $20 and there is no on street parking available - it was always taken when we looked. If you have kids I would say just park in the lot.
Great place to stay on Maui for the price. I had two small children with me (4 and 6 year old) and I was initially concerned about staying in a private room in Carol's house. Carol and her family were so loving and open that my concerns were quickly erased. They were very open about using the kitchen, laundry and living room areas of the house. I could not have asked for a better place to stay before the rest of my family joined me for a stay at one of the major hotels. There is a small fridge in the bedroom which made it convenient to keep our food in. Carol invites you with open arms to use any of her kitchen utensils. The bathroom is outside of the bedroom and is dedicated to the use of the guests. We had one day where it was pouring rain and we basically had the use of the downstairs living areas to ourselves. This was great considering there was nothing outside that would have been enjoyable to do with the kids. We were told we could watch movies on their big screen TV using their Netflix and the kids had a blast. I can say nothing but thank you to Carol and Todd for enhancing our vacation in Maui. I will say that if you are a person who wants absolute privacy then this may not be the place for you. But with the schedule my kids and I had, along with Carol and her family's schedule there could not have been too much more privacy provided. That being said if you are a people person who enjoys getting to know others you could not ask for a more perfect place to stay. My biggest regret about the stay was not having more time to visit and get to know Carol and her family better. They will do anything they can to make your trip to Maui a fantastic experience. I was offered the use of various beach items to take on our beach excursions. Todd provided information on a fantastic beach for my two small children to practice snorkeling for the first time. The beach was so perfect with the water and lack of waves, compared to surrounding beaches, that the kids spent almost six hours straight in the water. There is a private entrance to the room which made coming and going easy. But it was just as walking through the house out the front door. My kids definitely thought so! And that was the beauty of staying there, no matter what you did you were made to feel like a valued and welcomed guest.
The family enjoyed our stay in unit G104! Perfect for a family of 4! The lay out of the condo was nice. As you walk in the front door, the kitchen and the living area is separated by a kitchen counter. There is an alcove as you walk in. The main bedroom is located to the left as you are walking in the front door, this has an ensuite shower. The 2nd bedroom is located to right as you walk in the front door. The 2nd shower is right across the 2nd bedroom along with the washer/dryer.
Carol was super responsive (via text) when I had questions about the condo. I would definitely contact her again for any Hawaiian vacation we will have in the future. Thanks, Carol!
We used the pools several times during our trip. I like it that they had 2 pools, one salt water pool with a hot tub next to it and a smaller chlorinated pool closer to our room. Plenty of towels to use for pool and or beach. There are two body boards in the main bedroom for you to use and my son donated his water canon to add to the fun. Neat and tidy was this condo and we were lucky to have stayed here.
The kitchen had the proper tools for us to use and some left over (spices) odds and ends which we added to when we vacated. The washer and dryer was very useful. The 2 showers were perfect for us.
The condo itself was super convenient to the main tourist area : Front Street and the Wharf and the Pier where you can book your sea adventures and outings.
Although parking was not included, we didn't have a difficult time finding street parking. If you don't mind walking 2 or 3 blocks from the complex. You can pay for the Aina Nalu parking which is $20/day...we did that on the last evening so it was easy for us to load the car.
The a/c unit in the 2nd bedroom was not working, but we were fine without as the other 2 a/c units were sufficient in cooling the entire unit. Other than that, this was a great location, close to a lot of local places. Foodland was close by and they have great poke!
The unit was clean and comfortable, and we felt at home. Carol was very helpful in getting us set up, and gave some tips as to where to go in the area. Plenty of towels and some beach / snorkel equipment are there, along with a small library of books, DVDs and games.
The highway noise did not bother us, but it is noticeable. The complex is screened from the highway by plenty of vegetation.
