First time using VRBO and first time in Hawaï.
2 adults and 3 teenagers 13-15-17 years old.
Found everything needed.
Everything is close (supermarket right at the corner).
Beach is ok but easy to find others nearby.
We recommend this place.
Overall it fit our needs and the location is great with access to so many beaches nearby. The owner was responsive with my questions and how everything worked. They were very organized! Property was clean too!
Our stay was fantastic. The communication from Ray and Carole was excellent and answered any questions we had quickly. Ray responded to a call within a minute when arriving at the condo. The condo has a cozy atmosphere, and convenient location making it a perfect choice for a relaxing and memorable vacation. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a private and comfortable retreat in Kuai. Except giving such high reviews will make it harder to reserve on our next visit.
Booking and check in were easy. Nice location near grocery store and restaurants. Owners had nice communication. We enjoyed our stay. Mahalo
Property is great. Can’t beat the view and the access to the beach. A short walk down the beach the turtles come up at sunset. The location has quick access to groceries, coffee shops and quick stop restaurants but is away from the busyness of the hub of Kihei. Property was spacious enough for family of four. Beautiful pool on site.
My family really enjoyed the property we stayed at in Kihei! The property was easy to find, very clean, and within walking distance to the ocean. We would definitely book this property again❤️
The view from the balcony was beautiful. Great location!
Very clean. Nice location. Unit has Window a/c not central air, but window units kept us cool enough. Great place and value.
We brought the family out with us for Christmas vacation absolutely loved our stay here. The owners definitely put a lot of thought into the amenities and even put a binder together for local Fanfare and great places to swim and snorkel. Will definitely be staying here again
Location on Pacific is great.
Condo is spacious for family of five.
Beds were comfy.
Kitchen is big.
Floor extremely dirty.
Electrical outlets in bathrooms didn’t work.
Cockroach found in master bath.
Things to keep in mind…
Too many trinkets. Felt cluttered.
Air conditioning rules. We had two nights with absolutely no breeze. Very stuffy.
Area has many homeless and the area is quite rundown for walks/runs.
Great property next to beach and sown the street from Maui Brewing. Wish we had more time - will stay here again next visit
The property is in a prime location. Peaceful at night, near a lot of stores, restaurants and shopping. Condo is very nice minus the water pressure in the hall bath is very weak, the A/C unit in the master bed isn’t strong enough for the size of the room. The fan in the master bed did not work. It would be nice if 2 hours prior to a guest arrival the condo would have the A/Cs on along with the fans to get circulation and lower the temp. By 3-4 pm it was hotter inside than outside and I was dripping sweat quickly. We really liked it, but wouldn’t stay again. I like to be honest with people so the next person can have a better experience.
In all honesty I needed a place for one night for our group because I found out late that our trip had to be extended by one day.
Found this unit and the price/location was right. Communicated with the owners and was very happy.
It was clean with a pool and very short walk to the beach.
If I had to give one honest criticism it would be that it is very hard to keep the place cool within the parameters that the owners suggest. This is not entirely their fault. There was a storm coming up from the South which made the area unusually muggy with no wind. When it gets to the high eighties, even in the evening with no wind off the ocean there is no way, outside of air conditioning, to cool down enough to sleep.
There are 2 air conditioning units but the owner suggests only running the units for 2 hours to cool down enough to go to sleep. That information isn't forwarded until you've already booked and you're about to check in.
My good faith suggestion would be to slightly raise the overall cost of the rental or give individual renters the option of paying extra so they can run the AC to their hearts content without without hurting the owner's bottom line.
Again, I have to point out that most of the year, with the usual trade winds, this is probably not an issue and I would absolutely consider staying here in the future
Great property. It was clean and we loved the proximity to the beach and the views. We also enjoyed the Hawaiian decor throughout the condo. It was well stocked with coffee, coffee filters, and the basics. We had a bit of traffic noise late at night coming in through window in smaller bedroom but overall a wonderful place to stay.
It was clean ,nice, comfortable, it had everything we needed in order to cook. It was very nice. I will rent the place again coming back to Hawaii.
We loved our stay. It was amazing being right on the beach. It was cozy and convenient. The home was so well stocked for families
The beautiful sunrises that represented new beginnings every morning we woke up there. There's something magical about seeing your footprints in the sand. Let's not for get the gorgeous sunsets and the beautiful hues that represented a magical feel all over the island.
Our family of 6 enjoyed this spacious, comfortable, well-stocked home overlooking the sandy shore. We borrowed the sand toys and body boards and walked 2 minutes before we were in the water. Back at the house we had everything we needed for cooking & dining.
I can't say we felt "at home" because it was so much cleaner and well decorated than my own home, but definitely appreciated the personal touches from the owners. 😊
Our family just returned from ten days here and we just loved it. Clean, roomy, great decor and character, and a great location right by the beach and grocery store. A perfect place from which to venture out to Maui and a perfect place to return to at the end of the day. Check in/out could not have been easier and the property facilities (laundry, parking, pool) are great, too. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
We didn’t really know what to expect but were blown away. The view from the lanai is great. The beach is literally right over the berm. The condo’s atmosphere was quiet and peaceful despite having all the amenities. We saw sea turtles every day on the local beach.
You’re only a 1 minute walk away from a grocery store but we rented a car to enjoy the whole island.
This condo was perfect for our family of 4. Beautiful and quiet grounds and sunset view. We used the boogie boards, chairs, and guide book and saw turtles on the beach out front. Kihei has a great local vibe that is easy going. Ate at Nalu’s and Akami coffee, both short walks away, and enjoyed Kamaole beach park.
This was a great place. My kids and I really enjoyed it. The location and beach were great!
My family stayed a couple of nights at this property for a family vacation. Most of our time was spent out and about, but our time here was great. Very clean and comfortable, the kitchen had everything one might need, and there many great decorative touches throughout the property. The beach is also just a short walk away. Highly recommend.
this house is very clean and has everything you need. have very beautiful seaview from balcony. Definitely I am willing to come back again
The apartment has everything you can possibly think of . Its great location.
This unit is located in a very old condo complex. It has accordion walls between bedrooms and other rooms which we did not expect. The beach here is very close and beautiful but the view is half blocked by trees and there were homeless men sleeping there. Unfortunately the floors were dirty and we got no response from management after requesting they be cleaned.
This place was beautiful! It had everything we asked for and it was a prefect location. We couldn’t have been more happy.
Had an amazing time at this property. See turtles abound in the cove, and our night walks up the beach let us see them sleeping in the evening. Proximity to the beach was excellent
We enjoyed our stay at Beach Hale. Many beaches, restaurants, and shops are within walking distance or a short drive from the condo. It is also nicely centrally located and a great launching off spot for all of the many Maui adventures. The owners of the apartment are very nice and informative.
The only downside of the condo is that it does not have central AC. I am sure that most times during the year this is not an issue but the week we were there in August it was quite warm and the trade winds were not much help in cooling it down.
Overall we were very pleased with the condo and the view from the condo is stunning, especially at sunset!!!
We loved this condo in all respects! It's on the beach side of S Kihei Road, which means that it's one of the few condos where you can walk straight to the beach - across a short, grassy park. The view is uninterrupted, straight to the ocean - so the view from the deck is perfect for gorgeous sunsets. On the other side, it's a very short walk to a Times supermarket. The lap pool is great, lovely warm water - no diving, so perhaps less perfect for more boisterous kids, but we loved it.
Inside, it is amazingly well stocked - all the kitchen equipment you could want, and loads of little touches that made life easier - coolers and tupperware for eating out, blenders and juicers etc. Everything is very well organised and well laid out. There's even a couple of body boards, chairs and other beach kit for kids. The furnishing is modern and in good condition, beds are comfortable, and ceiling fans essential for cooling you ready for bed!
Ray and Carole were very easy to deal with, relaxed and helpful in all regards. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and such an enjoyable stay.
So why haven't you booked this condo yet?
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful condo!! We spent 10 days back in January of 2013 with our daughters and enjoyed everything about it. Some our favorite times were spent down at the BBQ grills, meeting some wonderful people. We really appreciated having the grocery store within walking distance. You have the kitchen so well stocked and enjoyed cooking many meals in the condo. Would love to come back again!
What a wonderful unit. Beautifully decorated, above and beyond with amenities. The view was the best ever, we have stayed in many other units on the property and this was first time in bldg. A. Very private and quiet. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
We stayed in Ray & Carol's beautiful condo for 4 nights over 4th of July week and I must agree with the earlier reviewers in saying that my entire experience was top notch. Right from the first contact with Ray to our departure, we felt extremely satisfied. The condo is located in a beautiful complex in Kihei that is close to amenities but feels so secluded and peaceful. And yes, the condo is actually even better than what it looks in the pictures. View from Lanai is beautiful. The condo is very tastefully decorated and the kitchen is fully equipped. We were traveling with two 1yr old babies and found everything we needed to cook meals for them. Swimming pool is clean, we enjoyed dipping in it with the babies. Will stay there again in a heartbeat. Mahalo Ray for the awesome experience.
The place was beautiful, very classy. I poked my head in a few other condo's there and they didn't compare. I loved the decor. They have everything you need and it is all neatly labeled. I loved the sunset from the patio. Even though we were only a few miles from major shopping, it seemed so quite and relaxing. The other guest were all very nice and who wouldn't be on vacation in Maui. The only surprise was I had to leave air on even in November.
We feel so lucky to find this newly remodeled condo with ocean view. The kitchen and bathrooms are fabulous. All rooms are artistically decorated. The owner is very responsive to my questions in the whole process. They have on-site manager as well.
We have 6 adults and there are plenty of kitchen ware, extra sheets, towels and lots of other handy stuffs. The condo is within walking distance to grocery stores.
WOW! The condo was great and the view was fabulous. We felt at home immediately and didn't want to leave! MAHALO NUI LOA!
What a lovely condo! The sunset views from the lanai to the ocean were fabulous! The condo was so comfortable, we felt like we were home. The decorating, with all the pieces of "island art", was awesome. We knew we were in a tropical paradise.
All the fun activities we enjoyed while in Maui; snorkeling, kayaking, and lying on the beach, were close by. It was a family vacation we won't ever forget! Thanks for sharing your condo with us!
