This worked well for our visit with two teenage boys. Condo was well appointed and it was nice to sit on the patio. The office staff was helpful, giving us advice and lending us clubs for the putting green. We enjoyed using the outdoor amenities (pool, grill) and it was great to snorkel in the vicinity where we saw several turtles. Everyone was friendly and we would stay here again.

This unit is a comfortable stay at the best beach in South Maui in our opinion. My family owned a condo for years at the adjacent property so we are very familiar with the location and Keawakapu beach which we love. The unit was perfect size for our family of 3. Yes, it is outdated but how much time are you spending inside and you have absolutely everything you would need especially in the kitchen. Laundry in-unit was especially helpful! You can access Wailea easily as well as Kihei proper for groceries, etc. The large lawn/state park out front was great for bocce (which the property has to loan out) as well as the incredible sunsets. We hit the pool after hours at the beach and used the BBQs to grill up dinner. My mother-in-law stayed in one of the 1 bedroom units as well and it was very nice. Definitely recommend for location, location, location!

I was nervous at first when I noticed that there was no A/C. However, it is not needed! Open the windows and enjoy the beautiful views and cool air. Just close the blinds during the day to keep it cool upon your return. Though it may be a little outdated, the beds were extremely comfortable and bathrooms were beautiful. We look forward to visiting this unit again in the near future!

This was an older condo, but was clean and a great place to stay. On the beach with decent views, and a beach in front to watch the sunset. A great place to base yourselves for a week while you explore Maui. One note I would add, is that there was no air conditioning a the time of our stay, but the open windows and fans were more than enough to keep us cool at night.

When we first walked in, we were a bit disappointed. I didn't know I had to look for these as amenities: A/C and a hot tub. It was really hot in the place (in January). They are working on putting A/C in. I also had the impression that we were oceanfront, due to the pics, but we are actually tucked in the corner, we couldn't see the sunset from our balcony. But I did appreciate the view of the mountains. The pool was nice, never very crowded. It was a bit farther in town than I thought. It is right next to a park and two beaches are a very short walking distance. They give you wristbands to wear in the pool. However, I never once noticed a person wearing them so neither did I. A woman in 114 came over and demanded to know where they were and insisted that I wear one. She also pointed at the pool rules and invited me to familiarize myself with them (my son had jumped in the pool). I'm pretty sure she doesn't work here. The next day, as we were BBQ'ing and sitting at the pool, at *6:55pm* a guy told us to remember that the pool closes at 9pm. What? We are white, most of the residents are white and older, I hate to think about how people of color must be treated.

So thankful for our family stay over Thanksgiving week! Spectacular view to wake up to every morning (worth the annoyance of rooster crows) and amazing sunsets each night! A short drive to Kihei restaurants and rentals made for a fun week of snorkeling, surfing and day trips. Friendly, considerate guests, and great beach spots with beautiful pool and grill setting. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and quiet ceiling fans provided a very pleasant experience.

What an amazing resort!! Amazing location!! You will not be disappointed. My wife, daughter and a friend plus myself stayed for 9 days in 514. Let me tell you it straight from the start. I wasn't sure about this place as some of the reviews were not too good. Do not let any of the reviews throw you a curve. There are 1. bugs everywhere in Maui you are visiting an island. 2. Dirty floors are because of the wind. Keep the windows and doors shut and you will reduce the dirt, but you will also reduce the experience. The photos were amazing, so I reached out to the management team, and they responded quickly and reassured me that the condo was being upgraded with new items. It is an ongoing process as the whole resort is being upgraded. The work at the resort will not interrupt your vacation and they are very good at making sure that you know what is going on. The open concept in the condo makes for socializing with everyone easy. The views are amazing from condo balcony, and you also get views of the mountains which on one night held an illuminated evening with a lightning storm that we watched for hours. Below the balcony is an open green space which is manicured and the place to be everyday soaking up the rays of the sun or doing yoga or a personal workout. The pool is a great spot to split up ocean snorkeling, swimming and just relax. From the green space turn right and follow a trail to a small beach that in the afternoon you can see Sea Turtles beach themselves for an afternoon nap. Turn left on the green space and followed in front of the next resort and walk onto the beach that goes on for at least a 30 min walk. I could go on forever. What a beautiful spot and we will return!!! Mahalo Doug, Leigh Anne & Stella

First the listing should include that there’s no air conditioning. It was ridiculously hot and uncomfortable trying to lounge and sleep with no ac. The bedroom fan could only be used on the lowest setting because when it was turned up higher it make noises and sounded like it was about to fall from the ceiling. It was very disappointing. The property was not clean, I took a shower and walked to the kitchen and my feet were filthy. The kitchen definitely needs some updating with the dirty tile and rusty refrigerator. The kitchen was wreaking from what I later found to be water sitting in the dishwasher. The most disappointing and disgusting part of it all was the roaches found it the kitchen. We came in late one night and saw bugs scatter when the lights came on but couldn’t get close enough to see what they were before they disappeared. Then last night when I went to open the dishwasher a bunch came out. For the price I paid, a roach infested place is unacceptable. There was also construction going on at the property which caused noise and we weren’t able to reach anyone in the office. The office was closed due to the construction. The night before we left we finally just happened to run into the office manager and got wristbands for the pool for my kids. The place looks nice but its in bad shape. There’s little things that make a huge difference in the quality of someone’s stay, a leaky refrigerator, broken ice trays and broken beach umbrellas are small issues that should be fixed/ replaced when charging people this much money to stay in what essentially felt like a dump. Seriously, ice trays are a dollar.

This a a great condo property. The unit we rented was a bit dated however it was clean and roomy Check in was a breeze and the property manager was very good to deal with. The pool and grounds are awesome. You cannot beat the view. The property staff were all friendly and helpful

I would like to start by saying the view from this unit is amazing. You see the ocean when facing one direction and the mountain when facing the other direction. The property manager was extremely helpful solving the issues we had when we arrived. Also, it was great to have a washer/dryer in the unit. That being said this unit needs updating and some basic repairs. In both bathrooms the shelves in the showers where you would keep your toiletries were either missing or broken. In the Master Bedroom the dresser drawers wouldn't close all the way. In the living room the furniture was uncomfortable. The foam in the cushions of the couch and chairs was worn down. The kitchen was well equipped but the appliances are older and definitely show it. The whole unit could use a coat of paint to freshen it up. The unit does need to be cleaned better. The floors were not cleaned very well and we could tell because our socks were very dirty on the bottom after walking around just a little. I had to scrub clean the outdoor table before we could use it. We never complain but we were disappointed with the unit for the price we paid so while we would stay at the resort again we would not reserve this unit again.

This was a great place to stay while we were in Maui to attend a wedding. The unit was very spacious, especially the Lanai, which was perfect for enjoying the sunrise and sunset everyday. The unit did not have air-conditioning (none of the units in this location do) but there were plenty of fans to keep the air moving and a stiff breeze every afternoon coming off the ocean so temperature was not an issue. The only downside for us was the construction going on at the complex. The pool was not open until Tuesday and the dirt stirred up by the construction made it's way into the unit. However, we understand the need to make improvements to a property but would have been nice to know ahead of time. Overall this is a great place and we would recommend!

Lots of big windows make this condo open and airy. Loved the extra windows in the master bedroom and kitchen. The lanai is large and has a great view over the grassy area to the sea. The unit itself is quite dated. Only the bathrooms have been updated. It is functional but older. The onsite management was extremely helpful and friendly. Note that there are PLENTY of roosters -- wear ear plugs and shut the windows for best sleep. The location is great- just between Kihei and Wailea- with easy access to a long walkable/swimmable/snorkeling beach used mostly by locals. Also very close to all the local shops and restaurants in Kihei and the beaches in Wailea. Easy parking. Small washer/dryer in the condo was convenient. Lots of good beach towels and 2 beach chairs provided. We enjoyed our stay, but be prepared for an older condo.
