The Resort
Maui Kamaole (MK) is a low-rise, low-density complex consisting of 13 two story-building complexes, spread over 23 beautifully landscaped acres. It is one of Maui’s lowest density and premier condominium resorts. Each unit is more like a townhome than a conventional condo. The resort is meticulously maintained and beautifully landscaped and is by far the nicest resort in Kihei. MK has 2 pools/2Jacuzzis, 2 tennis courts and many BBQ areas. All of the first floor units at MK are one BR units (except a few which have converted a windowless den to a 2nd BR) and all of the second floor units like ours have 2 BR’s. Most of the 2 BR units (114 of 158 = 72%) are ~1052 sq ft of living space with the remaining 28% a little over 1200 sq ft. Ours is one of the larger units (1214 sq ft) and also has significantly (~20%) larger Lanais. The 20% larger units provide a more comfortable stay. If a MK listing doesn’t mention its size, it is surely a smaller unit. Over the last 17 years we have had nothing but 5* reviews

Maui Kamaole is located in south Kihei, an area most guidebooks describe as the “Sunny Gold Coast”. It is an upscale property that bridges the casual charm of Kihei and the elegance of the many 5* resorts in Wailea that begins just two blocks away. It is close to the restaurants, shops and the championship golf courses of Wailea and Makena. The spectacular 1.5 mile long Wailea Ocean Walking Trail begins just a short walk or drive south. Across the street is one of Maui’s finest beaches, Kamaole Beach Park III, with picnic areas and a beautiful sandy beach where you can swim, snorkel, boogie board, surf, picnic or let the kids play or just relax in the sun or under one of the many shade trees. Lots of turtles frequent the waters around this beach. Kahului Airport is only 25 minutes away from our unit. The resort offers automated check-in with concierge services with brochures of activities and restaurants. The owner will provide you a code to check so you can proceed directly to our unit, with parking just a few steps away.
Our Unit
Maui Kamaole is a great resort and nearly all of the units here are nicer than those found at other resorts. However, as each unit is individually owned, furnished and maintained, there are considerable differences among units in desirability and upkeep. Additionally, MK was built in 3 phases over 13 years. Ours in the newest phase with the nicest features. Below is a list of features of our unit that we believe sets our unit apart from other MK units. We suggest you use this list to compare our unit to others at Maui Kamaole (MK) or other resorts:
• 70+% of the Maui Kamaole 2 BR units are ~20% smaller (200+ sq ft). The extra space will enhance your comfort and enjoyment
• The main spacious private lanai has a motorized 8 x 18 ft retractable awning to allow comfortable seating on even the hottest days. It has a patio table that will easily seat 6 and a comfortable reclining chaise lounge. Less than 15% of MK units have a retractable awning and most have small 4 person tables.
• In July 2023 we replaced the sofa bed, performed major maintenance re-painted much, added new artwork, etc. In Nov 2019 we replaced all the carpeting with high-quality all nylon carpeting (3X the weight of the carpeting used in most condo’s), repainted the unit and replaced or refinished all the chairs
• Over 80% of MK units have the noisy window style A/C units in the bedrooms. Ours are the much more expensive “Split” type where the noisy condenser is outside and the inside units are very quiet. If you have stayed in other MK units or motels with noisy window units you will greatly appreciate our ultra-quiet Mitsubishi Mr. Slim A/C’s
• We have a designer quality dining table that seats 6 inside and another 6-seat table on the patio. Most units have tables that only seat 4
• As it was difficult to buy quality furniture in Maui (as the on-island stores cater to rental units buying budget furniture), we bought all of our furniture at an upscale store on the mainland and had it shipped to Maui. Look closely at our photos vs those of other units to compare the differences. In Oct 2021 we upgraded the King mattress in the upstairs bedroom to a Casper foam, which is really comfortable.
• Having been in many MK 2 BR units, I can say that ours is the only one I know that has added a door to the upstairs BR for both privacy and to make it possible to keep this BR cool on hot days/nights. We also increased the A/C size in this BR from the 5000 to 9000 BTU found in nearly all units to 12,000 BTU, making it easy to cool the upstairs.
• Most 2BR units (>80%) are of the open loft type where the entire wall overlooking the Great Room is just an open lattice. Coupled with most units having no door and an underpowered window style A/C, these factors make the upstairs BR almost impossible to cool and the open wall also allows any noise from downstairs to disturb those in the upstairs BR. Ours has a window with shutters that mitigates these issues. When comparing units, look closely at the photos of the upstairs BR to see this significant difference
• Our BR’s are both equipped with new blackout drapes to let you sleep in if you desire. Most units just have shear drapes that make the BR's very light.
• Our building is the newest building at MK, 12+ years newer than most of the units. As a result it has nicer features and is in a better state of repair
• We provide high quality kitchenware including service for 6, a good selection of glassware with glasses for red & white wine, champagne, martini's etc. and plastic glasses for pool use. All kitchen utensils and silverware are of high quality with knives that are kept sharp. In addition to all the standard kitchen necessities we supply both a toaster and toaster oven, Belgium waffle maker, rice cooker, large Wok as well as a full selection of utensils (see photo’s)
• We have a new 2022 full size LG front-loading clothes washer and dryer, 3X the capacity of most MK units, making doing laundry much faster and reducing the number of loads you will need to wash.. These large capacity units also allow us to frequently wash the bedspreads and pillows, not possible with the standard washer/dryer in most MK condos. If you care about getting a unit where the bedspreads, pillows and blankets are kept clean, this is a major benefit of our unit (e.g., if a unit doesn't have a washer/drier capable of washing the bedspreads and blankets, how often do you think the owners take them to a commercial laundry to get cleaned?).
• We have 3 HDTV's (58, 55 and 37 inch) making for more pleasant viewing. Both the 58” 4K set and the 55” are Smart TV’s set up to allow you to preview all your photos and connect to streaming services. The main 2019 58” TV has a new Digital Video Recorder to allow you to record shows and watch them later. All TV's have a DVD player (2 are BluRay). Unlike most MK units which have at most basic cable package with few if any HD channels, we have over 300 channels of TV, including dozens in full HD. Why have HDTV with no HD channels, as is the case in most units which have elected for the minimum cable package?
• We have a large library of movies (280+, many kids favorites), all in HD. Most of our movies have an over 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning that the movies we provide are actually worth watching, many of which are rated as in the top 100 of all time.
• We have a large CD music library featuring Hawaiian music
• We have a Sony PlayStation 3 to play games (6 games provided) and BlueRay DVD's
• We provide a huge collection of snorkel gear, boogie boards, ice chests, beach toys, tennis racquets, badminton sets, smash ball, etc to help your family enjoy your stay at no additional cost
• We have lots of infant and toddler items like a 2 portable cribs, an umbrella stroller, baby swing and bath, high chair, kids toys, kids movies, water floats and vests, small kids pool, etc
• Everything is tastefully designed and decorated
• Everything is kept new, fresh and meticulously maintained and clean. At least twice per year we perform extensive preventative maintenance to minimize any disruptions to your vacation.
• Our entire building was recently painted and was tented for termites in November 2019
• Multiple sleeping options if you have more than 4 people or young kids
• In over 14 years we have had nothing but 5* reviews (over 100). We know of no other condo at MK that can claim they have had all 5* reviews
• High speed 300 Mbps secure wireless internet (WiFi) as well as a wired Ethernet port.
• Two stereo's (one with IPod/IPhone docking station) and one with an MP3 player input with a large library of CDs (50+), including a good Hawaiian music library.
• A safe to secure your valuables
• A Digital bathroom scale, make-up/shaving mirror, hair dryers, iron and ironing board are also provided
• A large supply of books, guidebooks, jigsaw puzzles and games.
• Our sports utility closet is truly exceptional, greatly exceeding most if not all other condos. We have provided 6+ beach towels, 15+ sets of snorkels/masks/fins, 3 boogie boards, 9 sets of various size beach shoes, 4 noodles, 6 quality beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas + 1 beach tent, lots of beach toys for kids & toddlers, 5 tennis and 3 badminton rackets, 4 beach SmashBall racquets, Frisbees, 5 different size ice chests and a full size backpack for serious hikers.
• There is a wireless telephone/answering machine with free local and long distance service (US, Canada and Mexico).

We have equipped this as our second home, used both by us and our 4 kids and 6 grandkids. Many Maui Kamaole and other condo units are owned by realtors/investors and furnished with minimum conveniences and least expensive furnishings, making a maximum return. Instead, we have tried to think of everything to make your stay (and ours) comfortable and memorable. As the locals say, “Maui no ka oi” or Maui is the best!

The condo is one of the best furnished and beautifully decorated and view is amazing. The owners very informative and quick to respond. Our daughter and family stayed in the unit as we had four other condo’s with 17 total family staying at the complex. The location is so close to so many beautiful beaches and hiking trails. Everything you needed they furnished. Highly recommend. Just one thing to note. Quiet pool hours are 6-9 pm. Which for a group with young kids who even after a full day at the beach like to have fun at the pool was hard to keep them not too rowdy. Good BBQ areas. We ope to be back soon.

This was a perfect place to stay with my family while we were in Maui. We were in Maui for a wedding and all the other people were jealous of our place. Not only less expensive but much nicer than what other families had during their stay. This condo was in a very nice community with friendly people.

The good: The pictures showed the condo as it is. The guide book was spot on and the email updates from the owner was great. Good communication from him to us. The beach gear was great to have to save money on buying new stuff. Good cross breeze with all 3 balconies open. There was tide pods to wash clothes left for us, soap, dish soap, dishwashing pods and TP. Some changes needed: The kitchen was good, but needs updated pots and pans to handle a bigger family ie: bigger frying pans and pots with proper sized lids. All plates, glasses, and utensils were just fine. The upstairs bathroom toilet screams a high pitch all night and runs constantly, so it’s hard to sleep in the loft. The loft bed will break your back off and it will take about 2 hours to recover in the morning. The parking space was constantly used by a maid company for other condos being cleaned, so there were times we could not park in our assigned space and had to walk 50 yards carrying groceries or beach gear up a hill. We informed the owner but he was unable to take corrective action. The internet was out for the building and we were told to call spectrum ourselves, they couldn’t help us as we were not the account holders, so no homework was able to be done. The towels were “sour smelling” once you used them to dry off, but didn’t smell when dry. Otherwise it was a good stay.

My family and MIL stayed here for 1 week. The place was perfect with a good layout, plenty of kitchen supplies, brita filter, working AC in 3 areas, large lanai, lots of beach gear, great pool that wasn’t busy and decent beds. We did not have a car for the whole trip so the only downside is that the condo is in the far back of the property. It takes about 7-10 min to walk from the condo to the street which was not a big deal for my husband and I but my MIL is 78 and 6 y.o. this was a big challenge as it was on a slight hill. Other than the location of the unit, the place was fabulous. We had a great stay

The pool and grounds where the condo is located are stunning. It's a short walk 5 min walk to the closest beaches and 5 -10 min drive to amazing snorkeling. The condo was so clean when we arrived. It was comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, plenty of towels and sheets, pillows, etc. There's a closet full of anything and everything you'd need for the beach. Towels, beach chairs, tons of snorkel gear, boogie boards, shovels, pails, etc I recommend reading Walt's 3 ring binder with information about the area and snorkeling. It was very helpful.

A wonderful stay for our family, which included grandparents, and a 6 month old baby. We had everything we needed and more, including a pack and play crib, baby bath, beach towels, a cooler, and beach chairs! The closet is well stocked as advertised. A special mention to say the beds were extremely comfortable! The air conditioning was a wonderful comfort. Walt was very responsive and helpful to us during our stay. The location was good for us, as it was quiet, and off the busy S.Kihei road, but we wished we had a better view of the ocean. Not a huge deal given that we were in short driving distance to some amazing beaches. Would definitely recommend.

Our family of 4 adults and 1 child had a wonderful stay. The condo was very clean, comfortable, and well situated for access to beaches, restaurants, and other outdoor adventures on Maui. The grounds around the condo are lovely and well cared for. Walt always responded quickly to any questions and provided an overwhelming amount of information about the area which we referred to often. There is a whole closet of beach gear including boogie boards, umbrellas, masks and snorkels, ice chests, etc. My only complaint is that the snorkel gear was not good quality and we had difficulty finding a set up that didn't leak. A couple of us resorted to renting gear which wass easy and relatively inexpensive. If you have a favorite mask and snorkel at home, I would suggest bringing it with you if you have room.

This was our first family trip after the pandemic. While there was extra stress involved with the travel, our stay at this wonderful condo was amazing. The amenities were wonderful, our kids loved the pool! And the condo itself was clean and well stocked with all the basics a family of five needed for a week on the island. We would definitely stay here again!

I had some work to do during this vacation, and the space allowed both of us to not impose on the other's personal time. This was the perfect place in all respects. Everything was as described, and the condo was exactly as photographed. The location was wonderful - everything we wanted to do was nearby. We hope to return to Maui next year and the Goede's condo is our first choice if it is available on our chosen dates.

We were a party of six and found the condo spacious and close to everything. The only thing that is needed is a new ironing board. It wouldn’t stay up and the pad is nonexistent. I know I know, we are on vacation and who irons!! Well after the airport gets a hold of your luggage, things shift and get wrinkled, and you can’t go to a nice dinner wrinkled. Overall, we all would recommend this place. Walt is great at communication and giving info. Walk to the beach or down the road for some great restaurants.

Well equipped condo in an excellent development.

December 2021
The home was just as listed. We had everything we needed and more, the house was well stocked. We had use of a full kitchen including some oils and spices. Many cooking tools and cookware were available. The beds and bathrooms were perfect. The toy closed was well organized and very well equipped. Our stay was during a major rain storm and we were very comfortable in the condominium and secure in our safety. The grounds were beautiful and added to the Maui experience. Loved it .

Our family enjoyed our time at the Maui Kamaole in the Goede's condominium. The space was clean, spacious, and family friendly. We also liked that there was a really nice pool close to their condo and that it is quite close to the beach as well as many other amenities. Check-in was the only thing that we found to be a slight inconvenience because it is not being done face-to-face currently due to Covid, but after checking in we received a response from the front desk quite quickly. Overall, we would highly recommend renting from the Goede's. We felt like they took very good care to make sure we enjoyed our time in their space! Thank you Walt and Carol!

Our family had a great stay in this unit. It was well furnished and everything that Walt had in the detailed write up was true. We like the MK location and have stayed here several times since it is close to beaches in Kihei and Wailea and this unit is the nicest one that we have rented. I was really impressed with the Sports Utility closet and it was full of a lot of very useful items (chairs, umbrellas, mats, cooler, beach equipment, etc) that made our beach trips more enjoyable. The guidebook that Walt has is also very informative and would be really useful for visitors new to Kihei. We definitely enjoyed our stay here!

Walt and Carol's place was exactly what my husband and I were hoping for during our vacation stay. They are so intentional and thoughtful in all they do, and really remember every little detail. From a fully-stocked kitchen with all the appliances and cookware needed, the various beach gear, and all the different media that is available. Our most favorite thing, was a 3-ring binder full of all their recommendations, guides and tips!! It was sooo helpful to get their point of view for all the things available on the island. We absolutely loved our stay, loved how close it was to everything, and that it truly felt like a home away from home. Walt and Carol were so responsive and helpful, and we cannot wait to stay again. Looking forward to being back in Kihei!! Thank you soooo much Walt and Carol! Your home is a dream! <3

This amazing condo is in a great condition, fully matching the description. Nice location, fully equipped with everything you need. And of course Walter did an astonishing job writing a full book of instructions, giving you any possible idea of what to do in Maui, what to see, where to go and so on. Seriously, Walter, you may think about publishing this as a book or a travel website, as that was by far the largest collection of information - we didn't even have to google for anything, every morning we would just open that folder and pick something to do that day. Wow! Highly recommend, that's an amazing place to stay!

Everything you need and in a wonderful location. The owners have thought of everything. Great beaches are walkable. You won't be disappointed if you choose this home!

December 2012
We were so lucky to have found Walt & Carol's fantastic condo for our Family Vacation. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, our son's graduation from college, our younger son's 18th birthday, and my 50th birthday. This condo had everything we could have asked for! The dining room table had really comfortable chairs, the big screen TV was awesome, the beds were really comfortable, and my husband "the cook" was glad to see the BBQ so close to the unit. Although we barely used the A/C, it was nice to have an A/C unit in each bedroom as well as one in the dining/living room area. The full sized washer & dryer made keeping up with laundry a breeze. Lots of "nice" dishes, glasses, silverware, utensils, pots & pans, bowels, and wine glasses. Everything you needed for cooking was there! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone, and when I go back to Maui I would love to stay in this unit again. Walt & Carol - thanks for your contribution to our spectacular vacation.

Our family just returned from our first trip to Maui. This was also our first time using VRBO and it turned out to be a great decision. Walt and Carol take great care in providing their guests with a great deal of information on activities around Maui. The condo is also in great shape and is very spacious with all of the necessary supplies for preparing and serving meals. Walt and Carol even checked in on our second night to make sure we had everything we needed. We had a great time snorkeling, visiting the Surfing Goat Dairy, ziplining, and sightseeing on the Road to Hana. I would definitely recommend this Kihei location to families traveling to Maui. Thanks Walt and Carol!

This F- 207 condo at Maui Kamaole is superb! It is new and clean and every detail has been thought of. The outdoor lanai has an ocean view, great for relaxing after a nice swim with the turtles. Yes Turtles! We went snorkeling right out in front of the condo near the yoga trail . We saw 5 turtles at about 2:30-3 pm, just before the wind picked up. Lots of coral and fish too! No need to drive super far for great snorkeling and beaches ...just walk right down! Also, the best Stand Up Paddle surfing is down at Kalama Beach Park ...a short 5 minute drive from the condo. Rentals across the street. Get there by 8 or 9 ( 7am they open) . This condo has all the equipment you could need, many snorkel sets, beach gear, games etc. We also noticed a brand new washer dryer great for lots of beach towel loads, great kitchen and big screen TV with tons of movies on the playstation. There's Tennis , a gorgeous Tropical Pool , and lush tropical grounds. Its sunny most days and a terrific location in Kihei, with lots of great shops and restaurants super close by. We love it here and will come back to F 207 again! No complaints....We LOVED it!!!

July 2012
This condo was wonderful. The location was ideal...close to town, beaches and dining...not very far from the airport or other interesting towns and sights. The sunsets were beautiful from the deck and we were awakened every morning by tropical birds singing. The condo was well furnished, elegantly decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes, pans, utensils and basic cooking supplies. We loved the tropical pool, which was never too crowded and was close to all the condos. The location was quiet and private. We have never had such a relaxing stay in the islands before!

January 2012
We were very happy with our recent stay at this beautiful Maui Kamaole condo. The unit was large and very well maintained with quality furnishings as well as a wide variety of recreational equipment available for our use. The website photos accurately reflected what we found in the unit as well as the views from the lanai. The owners were very helpful in providing suggestions for activities we might (or might not) enjoy during our stay. They even phoned us after a couple of nights to see if we had any questions or problems. I would definitely recommend this property and am hopeful that we will be able to return to it soon ourselves.

This beautifully decorated condo was clean, had comfortable beds, everything you need in the kitchen, etc. -- and it felt like home. It was exactly like the pictures and written description. We loved the South Kihei area and the beautiful grounds of Maui Kamaole. My son, daughter-in-law, and grandkids (ages 13 & 15) stayed with me the first week. They left, and the 2nd week my two sisters and brother-in-law joined me in the condo. Everyone loved the condo. Walt and Carol know the meaning of customer service and are a pleasure to work with. I'd love to return.

September 2011
The condo is beautiful, very comfortable and was well set up for our family. It had everything we needed at our fingertips (boards, mask etc) we felt like home. We enjoyed the sunsets on the terrace, the beaches close by with beautiful corals and the tennis just a few step from the condo. Thanks for everything

August 2011
We had the most wonderful Maui vacation. Your condo was perfect. Everything we needed was there and was of high quality. We loved the tropical pool and having coffee on the large lanai every morning. The information you provided on things to do and places to go was very helpful. The condo was spacious and very quiet it was also close to all that Kihei/Wailea has to offer. We can't wait to return.

January 2011
Everything you could ask for and more. Just returned from a 19 day vacation at Walt and Carol's piece of paradise in Kihei. I hate to write this wonderful review because that means that i will probably never get a chance to book this lovely condo again if i rave about it too much. I just cannot say enough about how wonderful this condo is, luxurious, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Close to wonderful beaches. We cannot wait to return!!!
