My family and I enjoyed our stay at Michael's condo. It is modern, clean, stocked with plenty of useful items, and has a beautiful location and nice layout.
We slept well in the comfortable bed and silent A/C. We had no problems with the TV or wireless. All kitchen appliances worked well. Our baby found a lot of great toys to play with and the giant beach umbrella got a lot of use. We loved relaxing on the lanai and enjoying the beautiful view.
There was a lot of noise from the pool area that carried easily to the unit.
Coin-op laundry was a big hassle, especially with no change machines.
More serious complaint:
There were some communication issues with manager Linda as she did not provide us with the access code to the condo on the date indicated (one week prior to arrival). I sent her several messages and she did not reply until after I contacted airbnb's help desk (with less than 48hrs before arrival). Airbnb's customer service was outstanding, and Michael contacted me right away.
Also, as of 7pm the day of check-in, the unit had not been cleaned after the previous guests. Again, it took some effort on our part to have Linda take care of it but all was well in the end. Linda promised to waive our cleaning fee as a result. We will see if she comes through.
We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. I don’t know how others on Maui compare, but we were really impressed by how clean and quiet it was, and how breathtaking the view is! It was such a pleasure to wake up every morning and look out over the lawn to the ocean.
Everything is thoughtfully provided: plenty of towels, soap, plastic cups that you can take to the pool area, even a couple of pac-a-macs in case of rain. The shower is very good and the bed is comfortable. Everything is in excellent condition. There are washers and dryers just across the corridor.
The shared pool and hot tub are lovely - not too crowded (at least when we were there, in late September) and open until late so you can swim under the stars. We didn’t actually go in the ocean as there were so many nicer beaches to visit, but there is a stretch of sandy beach right in front of the building.
Location-wise, we ended up doing a lot of snorkeling so I think we should have stayed on the West coast in retrospect; but the location is great if you want to be in the Kihei area. Although there aren’t really any grocery shops or cafes within walking distance, it’s an easy drive to lots of places.
Overall the condo has a really nice feel to it, and the view is just spectacular. I would highly recommend it!
I highly recommend staying here. Michael had everything well mapped out and we found it very easy to get settled in when we first arrived. The unit is very clean and well equipped with all the niceties. The pictures in the listing are very accurate; the unit is up-to-date and has a gorgeous view of the water from the lanai. I think we had breakfast out there every morning. The pool isn't all that crowded and it's less than 50 yards to the water. If you're looking at places to stay in Kihei and come across this unit, I would recommend putting it near the top of your list for view, comfort, convenience and cleanliness. Can't wait to come here again! Thanks Michael!
My stay was excellent. The apartment was clean, kitchen was well equipped, and the view was great. They had a ton of towels, though we weren't able to use the laundry since it closes at 10pm. Would stay here again definitely!
Stunning! This was exactly what we wanted! Thank you Michael! The apartment is immaculately presented with sensational views! The reception staff were lovely and we felt so relaxed.
The only word of advice is to hire a car! We thought about not hiring a car and just walking around, we are so glad that we did though as the beaches near this apartment are best for walking on rather than swimming.
If you get a chance, go to the free yoga (Wed and Sat) near the tennis courts to left of the building.Its run by a local yoga teacher. It was the best yoga we have ever done!
Finding a great condo at a great price in Maui is very difficult. Most of them are outdated and still pricey. Michael from the very beginning was reponsive and answered my questions. The moment we stepped into the condo, we were so happy. It is BEAUTIFUL. Newly redone. The condos near are quiet and you cant help but smile as you eat your breakfast on the lanai looking at the ocean. I would gladly book this condo again. In fact, a relative has already booked it! Oh and the AC, is ICE COLD! :)
Do not hesitate to book his condo, we already miss it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "penthouse" and even extended our stay to be there 11 days! The view was gorgeous and we were up high enough to get away from the pool noise down below while still being able to watch the activity while my husband and daughter were in the pool or playing shuffleboard! The correspondence with Michael and Linda (Airbnb) was quick and very satisfactory. The penthouse was nicely remodeled and it was great being able to close the door from the bedroom and bathroom into the living room for privacy and noise reduction with our daughter sleeping in the living room. Although we made our own arrangements, the concierge was very friendly and provided great suggestions for fun family activities during our stay. The location in Kihei provided access to many beaches and activities if you had a rental vehicle and there were good restaurants nearby. It was away from the hotel resorts which worked fine for our family. Overall, we would stay here again on our next trip to Maui!
Oceanfront Penthouse was beautiful and as it appeared in the photos...newly remodeled and gorgeous. Michael the host was very accommodating and accessible via text, e-mail and phone. Check-in process was easy and quick. The view from the condo lanai is stunning and the neighbors are friendly. This location has easy access to shopping, grocery stores and restaurants and trips to Lahaina and Kahului are easily accessible. Would definitely stay here again....thanks, Michael!
