To start with my wife and I and another couple rented this condo (H-201) from VRBO and talked to the owner on the phone. She was very pleasant and had lots of advice for us in Maui. The condo is great and when compared to hotels or other condos it was a great price. We were one block from the beach but had a great sunset beach waiting for us. Plus lots of whales seen from the beach. Good stand up surfboard spot too.
The condo has a garden courtyard with a pool and spa with plenty of friendly people staying there. The area is mostly locals and longer stay people, many 4 or 5 months at a time. It was less a tourist trap area but with that you get some culture and locals. Now for those who demand service (maids and pampering) this isn’t your area but if you like the local scene and lots of shops around this is a great spot.
The owner has lots of things in the condo, including an Asian style of decorating. She also had snorkel gear, some outdated but worked, floaties for kids, a boogie board, etc… the unit had lots of dishes and pans for cooking home meals. Go to the Farmers market on the north edge of Kihei and get your produce at half the cost. Yummy banana bread too.
All in all, we had a great time at the place. The streets in Kihei are loaded with cars so some noise in mornings but where can you escape the throngs of people on this island??? Not to many places.
