The room we received was some what of a disappointment, while not the worst place I've ever stayed. but the Maui condo company wouldn't respond to multiple calls all ending in leaving a voice mail, and an email. Cons Smoke detector was clearly missing a battery as the door was wide open. The provided coffee pot didn't work when we...

We rented 433 through vrbo. The condo was a little less clean than I like, but a simple vacuum of the unit fixed that fast. The condo building is near the outskirts of Kihei which is both good and bad. I liked that it was quiet and private but we constantly had to hop in the car and drive to...

We pre booked unit 201 at this property. Unit was clean and communications with owner went smoothly. Unfortunately, for the cost, the condo is poor value. The owner appears to not reinvest in property or spend $ to maintain the property. The swimming pool was cold. Colder than the ocean. We were not sure how this was possible. This was...

The condo we rented was well stocked for visitors. We had a nice view of the beach and it was only a short walk down to a beach. We could easily drive to other surrounding beaches. It was close to grocery stores and shops. We felt like it was centrally located to many places we visited.

We were not in a condo that is managed by the on site management company, but is privately owned and rented through VRBO. The condo was very clean and well maintained ans is the property . The Management company offers some very good deals for you to use when you are there for tours and that type of things. The...

I have been spending two weeks in a sixth floor unit of Kauhale Makai as a gift to myself for retirement. I don't know what more I could ask for...pool, jacuzzi, ocean views, beach, grills, balconies, concierge, clean, security present. Location is easy access to immediate shopping and roads to other parts of the island. Elevators are always available.

Our friends have stayed here before and booked this condo - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in a tastefully furnished place with air con (in our bedroom) but broke the 2nd day in our friends' bedroom. We were gone a lot of the time but it was stuffy (except in our meat locker bedroom) when we returned. Kitchen was terrific as...

The unit had a musty smell, that to me is somewhat expected being on the ocean. The unit was clean with the exception of needing a new shower curtain due to mold. The pool, hot tub, and barbaques, were cleaned every morning. As far as the beach was concerned you really don't have control over the ocean and how the...

This is the worst place I have ever stayed in. The rooms were filthy, smelly, & we could not wait to get out of there! Since we were only staying 1 night thank god, we left without talking to anyone as no one was there. There price quote of $115 per night became $301.68. Over priced & nasty!

I've stayed at a few different condominium complexes around Kihei and this has been my least favorite. The beach it's on is so disappointing. It's rocky and full of dead broken coral. I never even got in the water because you can't see the bottom and you'll probably cut up your feet on all the ruble. The only people using...
