I stayed 5 nights. The place is newly remolded, loved the cabinets especially. Everything clearly labeled. Well stocked. 2nd floor just a few steps, Great Great view of both the beach and the ocean and green space. Loved walking across the street for coffee or natural grocery store so close. Comfy bed and sleeper sofa.

This property was amazing! We loved all the space and how all the sliding glass doors opened up the entire room. Michael was very helpful with getting us checked in and getting all the little extras that made it easier on my family as well as the beautiful welcome gifts! We all had enough space to relax and watch the sunset every night. The proximity of the beach just can’t be beat!! We just love Maui and have stayed in Kihei many times and we will be sure to rebook this property our next family trip.

The condo was exactly as advertised - very comfortable, clean, well stocked, and easy to access, with Brittany being a gracious and very communicative host. The location is just a few minutes of a lovely walk through the Banyan complex's gardens away from Kamaole II beach as well as restaurants/shopping in Kihei and one of the two pools is very close to the unit. We had a great time and hope to be back!

Anchor Cove is as oceanfront as a Maui condo can get. While located at a mid-size condo property, this unit feels private. It's plenty spacious for two couples - fully equipped, comfortable, and with a view that can not be beat. Already trying to plan a return!

This is our second time staying in this condo and we will continue to come again and again. It's perfect! Nicely decorated, very comfortable sectional, beach chairs and umbrella provided, gorgeous views, ocean front on one of the best beaches. Paradise!

The property is absolutely gorgeous and is on the beach. The sunset and sunrise views are breath taking. The property owner, August, provided excellent communication and was very welcoming. It is very clean and has every comfort of home. I would recommend to anyone to stay here!

The condo was perfect. So clean and updated with every amenity you could need. Our favorite part was the location with easy access to a beautiful beach (steps away from door to the sand) and everything you could need for a day at the beach. Plus, it was right across the street from some delicious restaurants that we took advantage of on lazy days when we didn't want to hop in the car. The facilities we're top notch and guests at the complex we're quiet and respectful. Aside from the condo and location, Anita was one of the best rental hosts we've ever worked with. She made a point to call us upon reserving to say hi and get to know us. She checked in with us ahead of our trip to make sure we had everything we needed and offer flexibility for check in / out times based on our flights. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND with the extensive condo packet and Maui visitor guide that we used often, plus the welcome champagne and congratulations card (it was our honeymoon). Multiple times throughout our stay my husband and I discussed when we could come back and stay in the same condo. We truly loved our stay and cannot wait to return. Thank you Anita for the warm aloha hospitality! It was a trip we will never forget.

This was our second time staying at Anita's condo. It has everything you’d need and more and you can’t beat the location !t really is a beachfront paradise. The view from the lanai is amazing. We will definitely return again and again!

We've been going to Maui and staying in Kihei in the same place for 20 years. We'll never stay in this unit again. Moved after 2 days. Condo was lacking... just about everything. 18" of closet space only after we cleared out a vacuum cleaner, step stool, ironing board and brooms. Had to use the ironing board as a table because there was no place to put anything down. Had to request kitchen towels, a bath mat, ant killer, a laundry basket, swiffer, entry rug, etc. There are no hooks around for towels, bathing suits... No ice maker. The bed was super uncomfortable and when I asked them to rotate it, they flipped it instead. So the 2nd (last) night we slept on the underside of the mattress (not designed to be flipped). We've never stayed in a more poorly equipped condo on the island. The only good thing is customer service was quick to respond to emails and texts and refunded our money for the duration after the 2 days.

We had a wonderful vacation! The condo had amazing views and was very clean! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed and more. We loved having the beach chairs and other supplies. The location was idea as well. We did have a little problem with the WI-FI but it was resolved. Thank you again August for your hospitality!

We really enjoyed the condo itself - really attractive, very comfy beds and all the amenities. The air conditioning was a fabulous addition, as we had spent a week near Keahou on the Big Island without air! That said, this is a high rise complex in a busy area, and we very much preferred the calm, peaceful spacious low level building we were in on Keahou. If you want beaches close, great food (we loved Moose McGillicuddy's and Fred's Mexican) this is the place for you. If you prefer a quiet getaway, look for something with more space between units and a calmer vibe.

The condo is in a great location, right on the beach with a great ocean view from the lanai. It is also close to lots of great shipping and restaurants, and a short drive to assume great South Maui snorkeling spots. Condo is clean and well equipped.

Property was perfect! We'll be coming back to this place for many years to come. Michael was the best host from welcoming gifts, snacks, fresh fruit & drinks. The home is loaded with everything you need & more - by far the best VRBO we've stayed in! Thanks Michael & team!

Karen’s home was amazing! We were there for almost a week and it was the perfect home. Not only were we close to different food spots, we were literally on the beach. This home is perfect to relax and enjoy the beautiful views. Karen was so great. She made sure to check in on us and was always prompt in responding. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful home and who wants to have a relaxing vacation.

Amazing property. Very clean and comfortable. The amenities in the kitchen are very good if you enjoy cooking. Usually we eat one meal a day out so it’s nice to have the option. Great location if you enjoy walking and visiting the local area. Lots to do. This is my sixth time to Hawaii. Will be back. Our host was very approachable and attentive to any questions that we had. People on site in the office were also helpful as we had a package delivered. Everything went so smoothly.

This place is magical! We came with our family to get married and could not have picked a better place or location. Our host, Michael, could not have been more helpful. Michael is amazing, very quick to respond and helpful with all requests. Michael is extremely knowledgable about the island, where to go and how to have food delivered, etc etc. He really made this whole process with our wedding much easier - so, thank you, Michael!!! The penthouse is in an amazing location, the beach is amazing. We had 9 people, enough space for all of us and close to all the areas we wanted to visit. The views, the sound of the ocean, it really was just an amazing stay. Michael, thank you for all that you did for us and we look forward to coming back to see you soon!!

My husband and I have been visiting Maui for over 20 years consistently. This was our first visit to Kihei and we were blown away with this town. We usually stay at a resort on either side of the Island (we love being served a cocktail at a fancy pool just as much as the next). We knew we wanted to stay at minimum 2 weeks and wanted to just chill and do whatever we wanted to without the hustle and bustle of a resort. WE FOUND UR PARADISE! The acommodations were everything we had hoped for... the unit had everything we could ask for as far a kitchen supplies, linens etc. Walking out to our beach steps away was magnificent. Many great restaurants within walking distance of anything you needed... including a little grocery store across the street. Amazing sunsets from our Lanai every single night. Karen was very easy to communicate with and was able to help us with anything we needed.Hoping to return sooner than later.

Great location & condo! The owners (Karen & Lloyd) were great to work with on renting their condo & very responsive to any of our needs during our stay. Thanks again & we'll be back.

Fabulous views, plenty of room. The ability to open up the sliding doors along the entire patio area was so much fun. Management very responsive. The only downside was the property is a little older, and is on very busy street.

Fantastic condo in one of the best complexes we've stayed in on maui and we've been to Maui dozens of times. Great views from the balcony, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable king bed, nice L shaped couch, AC. Can't beat the location, right on the beach and walkable to many restaurants. Extras like beach chairs, umbrella and snorkel gear are a big bonus.

My daughters and I loved this condo. It's in a great location South Kihei and walking distance to the beach and some great restaurants. The pool is well-maintained, and we cooked at the communal grills several times. The condo itself is updated, well-stocked, and has incredible views of the mountains and ocean - we could see whales from the lanai!!! Check in/out was easy as was communicating with the owner. We hope to return soon!

We had an amazing trip to Maui! This condo at the Maui Banyan was a perfect place to be able to explore the island and was a centrally located home base. The owner, Brittany, was very easy to communicate with, especially when we had concerns about a deleted flight and later arrival. The condo is exactly as it is pictured and is in immaculate condition . We spent a lot of time by the pools and on the Lanai, watching the whales splash just out from Kamaole 2 beach. We are already planning our stay for next year. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants a beautiful rental in Maui!
