I love to travel but I call Maui home. I initially rented through Airbnb and had such a great experience, I decided to list my own little gem on Maui.

Sonya's rental was really delightful. The beach is a short walk through the manicured grounds, and there is a pool nearby. The place itself was very nice and well appointed, and we particularly enjoyed cooking in the morning and relaxing on the patio. Would love to stay here again.
My wife and I stayed late July - early August 2015. Wailea Ekahi Village, where the condo is located, is utterly impressive. Sonya's condo is far better than what the pictures indicate. Here are some pix of my own from our trip. While not many, the gallery runs through images of the interior/patio area, the area surrounding Sonya's condo including the pool that's a 5 second walk away, the road outside the complex, and the beach area that's a 10-15 minute walk (or a short 1 minute car ride with easy parking available):
The complex is great, and the condo is awesome. It's super quiet at night, but you don't feel a sense of being hushed. The grill on the patio seriously makes a perfect filet. It's something like a Forman charbroiler. LOVED it. The place feels big.
Walk in. To your right is the master bedroom, huge. The open shower is the best place to relax and unwind in a cool shower.
Smack dab in front of you upon entering, in the hallway, is the washer and dryer, storage, etc. Just off to your left is the long entrance into the main bathroom. Huge.
Off to your left, the living room and kitchen. Kitchen's just big enough. Everything you need in terms of fridge space ... coffee, all kinds of utensils for just about everything you need, spices, oils, etc.
Everything was just really comfortable, in terms of quality of furniture, etc. I think anyone would be hard pressed to be disappointed with much of anything.
The location, awesome. Just 10 to 15 minutes to the south is Big Beach. Head up the road just a bit and you're in Kihei.
For the rate Sonya charges, the place simply over-delivers.
My wife and I stayed in Maui for eight days and the Condo was perfect for us and was just as described in the listing. The community is very nice and well maintained. There is a pool right out the back door and the beach is a short walk. The location was ideal for trying out a multitude of great restaurants in Kihei and Wailea. The living area can get warm during the day since there is only A/C in the bedroom, but it really wasn't much of a factor since we were typically at the beach or by the pool. I wouldn't plan on just sitting in the living room and watching TV during the afternoon during the summer. The A/C in the bedroom was great and we never had an issue sleeping or relaxing in the master suite. I would be weary about using the murphy bed in the summer without A/C in the living room. The patio is secluded and a great place to relax. Overall, I don't think it could have been any better. We would definitely try to stay here again if we get the chance to travel back to Maui.

We had a great time in this apartment. Especially enjoyed the private lanai hidden behind the bougainvillea. The grounds here are very matured and make a beautiful walk down to the beach. We opened up all the slat windows to let the breeze pass through and never needed to use the AC. Would definitely be happy to stay here again.
We had a wonderful time. Sonya describes her condo exactly like it is. We loved the proximity to the quiet pool. Her pictures on Airbnb look exactly like her place is. It can get very hot inside with no AC, except for the bedroom, but we were able to open things up in the evenings. The surroundings are gorgeous! Sonya left good instructions as well.
The weather has been strange this whole year. We never had non breezy afternoons. While the mainland had a freezing winter we had rain and little wind. It's taking us all by surprise! Thank you for taking such good care of the unit.
Unit is huge! Nice to have a second bathroom. Easy check-in & out. Host was very responsive when contacted. The unit is right by the pool, but we never had any noise issues because of it. Easy to walk to the beach through the complex or there is a public car park right by the beach and outside the complex. Lovely spot to make your base for your visit to Maui.
My husband and spent 5 days in Oahu and then 5 days in Maui in this lovely condo. The location is perfect and the condo is exactly what you see on line. It is helpful to have transportation since you are in a residential area and the beach is just a short drive down the road. It is walkable, but you have to bring all your beach gear with you. The pavilion near this beach has a beautiful pool, linai an outdoor kitchen and ample seating so you have the best of both worlds. The other pool is right outside the patio area. The grounds of this complex are beautiful and well maintained. Lots of Palm trees and flowering bushes; very lush and tropical. The only disappointment was there is A/C in the master bedroom only, but there are several overhead fans in the living room. It was very warm when we first arrived but then cooled down once we opened all the windows and turned on the fans. All in all we had a wonderful stay here and highly recommend it; if we came back to Maui we would stay here again. Aloha!
Very nice and clean condo, with all the amenities of home. We were able to cook all of our meals with the fully equipped kitchen. The only thing I would review negatively is that the listing titled a beach front property. Although the massive condo complex is beach front, this condo isn't even close to the beach. I suppose you could walk to it if you didn't mind the long trek back uphill. We ended up driving down, and did our exercise on the beach. Sonya seemed very accommodating, and let us check in early and was very responsive to our questions. All, in all, I would give our experience a 3.5 out of a 5 stars. Mahalo Sonya!
Loved staying at Sonya's...perfect location, central to everything. It was the best way to experience Maui-- as if we were locals, enjoying a quiet week to ourselves. There were only two cons: the very rare occurrence of two hurricanes in a row (which caused us to leave two days early) AND the fact that there was no AC in the living room/dining room. Normally wouldn't have been an issue with tradewinds and lots of fans but it was particularly hot while we were there and was uncomfortable at times. Otherwise, everything we needed was there, great pool, great condo...
