This condo was perfect! We loved the spacious interior, the amazingly comfy bed and best of all the huge balcony with views of Kalama Park and the ocean. The lace was fully stocked with beach amenities and we really appreciated the thoughtful welcome gift of snacks and necklaces. The property is close to everything (restaurants, shopping, etc) but the best part is that I was close to the food truck gardens which was the coolest experience. Book this place, you won’t regret it!

We enjoyed our time in Kihei and this apartment had a great location. The good: location, lots of food choices around the apartment, surf shops, nice kitchen to cook meals, nice bathrooms, many beaches within walking and short driving distance Important items to know: the furniture and bedrooms are a little outdated and quirky. The beds were extremely hard. Overall we had a good stay, 4.3 stars!

The property is close to everything. Many restaurants, food trucks, coffee shops, beach, surfing location, sports fields, everything, convenience is the key word. Quite often there is live music and events in the Maui Gardens behind the condo, which is great for activities and fun but its ends early enough to not be disruptive. Front balcony is positioned overlooking the ocean with a great view but the downside is it’s also on a busy street so it can be noisy if sitting out for a coffee or view of the ocean. Location and view trump the noise though. The hosts are great and very receptive. The place is well set up with everything you’d need. We’d definitely stay again!

Very comfortable, full stocked pad close to the everything. Kids loved the games, park and the beach.Beautiful sunsets. Wasn’t a concern for us, but only a sore sight - hope the construction on north side completes soon. Thanks for everything!

Selfishly I want this place to stay a hidden gem but because Matt and Colleen were such fantastic hosts and we absolutely loved their space, I’m leaving this review for future guests. The condo exceeded our expectations. Everything from the location to the space itself, we found ourselves wanting to spend time just relaxing on the lanai, watching the sunrises and sunsets, and not to mention seeing so many whales. Although we had a rental car, it was a nice option having beaches and food nearby that we could walk to every day. I honestly have nothing negative to say about this place. If you’re considering staying here don’t hesitate, book now.

We have stayed here before and it continues to impress with location, roominess and lanai view of the ocean. Can't wait to get back here.

This condo had everything we needed for comfort, cooking, relaxing. The lanai looks out toward Kalama Park & Cove Beach, & we enjoyed dining, relaxing, watching whales, and people watching. Restaurants, South Maui Gardens with live music & food trucks, Foodland (with discount card on condo keyring), ABC store, etc. were all a short walk away. Mike (owner) was very responsive if we had any questions. Overall, great experience!

We really enjoyed our stay here so much! We loved sitting on the balcony especially in the morning watching the surfers and people watching in general. The food trucks right behind the property in the Gardens was so convenient as was walking to many choices for restaurants and shops! The beaches right on S Kihei were wonderful starting just steps across the street. We enjoyed having the pool also. The condo was spacious for just the two of us and had everything we needed and so much more. Super well equipped! We want to come back soon!

We had the BEST Maui trip to date (3rd time's a charm!). The location of the condo couldn't have been in a better spot. We had the beach across the street, multiple food and drink options within easy walking distance. We were shocked to discover a huge food truck garden very close by with options for EVERYONE in our group. The condo was spacious and had plenty of room for us 4 adults and our 2 children. It was hard to pack up and leave, but we will definitely be back!

We were on the fourth floor and from our balcony we could see the whales breaching, blowing, bringing their babies to the surface and fin's slapping on the water! Every morning we sat there with our coffee's. The location was central to so many beaches and shopping areas. The food trucks set up behind our condo were awesome, whatever you were craving to eat, it was there. The condo has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your vacation, beach chairs to wine glasses...we used the BBQ's out by the pool too. The pool was clean and warm to swim and the pool area had shade, to sit and read. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were super clean. The fold out couch was good to sleep on too! And Patty was available to help out if needed! She answered all questions we had for her. Bonus for us was having a phone in the condo - family from home called us some evenings. Thank you again!

February 2024

We keep returning to this immaculate condo. The size is perfect for our family of four. View is second to none. Beds are very comfortable, and you never have to worry about ghost ants or bugs as the place is so well maintained. Patty is excellent (and so easy) to communicate with. Location is in the heart of Kihei and close to all the amenities you need. The South Maui Gardens is directly behind the building and offers such tranquility and numerous amazing food trucks.

So convenient to beaches and restaurants. The condo is beautiful and the sunsets every night from the lanai were like a painting.

The best features of this property is location and view. I think this is the only 6 story building in the area and is designed with all units to have an ocean view. Since this unit is on the top floor, the ocean view was the best! We enjoyed watching surfers, both experienced and beginners in surf school, from our lanai. The location is adjacent to shops, restaurants, and bars. The building lower level has shops including a great deli and a convenience also has good off street parking. The owner was very responsive to questions or problems we had.

The property was quite roomy and the kitchen and unit was the best equipped condo/house that we have stayed at. Close to shopping and restaurants and right across the street from the beach. The street in front of the condo building can be a bit noisy in the early evening as people are heading out for the evening but it is quiet by eight. The bedroom is in the back of the unit, so you don't hear anything during the night.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband and I stayed here for two weeks in January. The pros: fabulous location in easy walking distance to restaurants, bars, grocery store, South Maui Garden, very clean unit, decent price. The only con is the daytime traffic noise on Kihei Rd. It is loud during the day. It does calm down nicely at night and sleeping was not a problem.

2nd time this unit with next year already booked! Love the central Kihei location and great views from the lanai. Nicely apportioned kitchen even with decent knives. :-)

The apartment was perfect. Really liked the key pad so we didn't have to carry keys. Very clean. We watched beginner surfers and whales from the lanai over morning coffee. The only thing some people may care about is the pool doesn't get much sun so doesnt seem to be used much. We were able to walk to all the Kam 1,2,3 Beaches. Also central to many restaurants and bars. Foodland 2 blocks away. Easy to get a parking place. Thank you very much. We recommend your place to people!

Best communication ever. Patty is very responsive and provides detailed information about the conso but also the area. This condo has all you need to stay in or use as a home base to explore. The sunset views from the lanai and stunning. Walking distance to shopping and dining. We will rebooked when we return to Maui. Patti - Thank you for sharing this awesome condo with us.

Superb location and the best ocean view I’ve had in Maui over multiple trips. Breathtaking view of mountains, ocean, street, sidewalks and daily life. Walkable to food, restaurants, shopping. We didn’t even need a car. Took Uber a few times to shop in Wailea and eat at Mamas Fish House. Condo is spacious, well appointed with all amenities -Even had plenty of detergent, garbage bags, dishwashing liquid and soap. Host is very responsive and easily accessible for questions. Thanks again. Will definitely try to book for future visit.

Very nice condo and stocked well of kitchen supplies. Made it easy to go to Costco for food and eat home sometimes! Lots of food choices within walking distance too! Central to drive to different beaches and activities! Love looking out the window at the water and beginner surfers. Would stay here again!

Perfect location for walking to restaurants and the beach. Easy communication, great view!

January 2024

Views and location were excellent, close to restaurants, food trucks and shopping. The only downside was the surf shop right across the street. They begin opening early morning and it’s nonstop people all morning. It’s really a busy place, this noise does come up to the lanai.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo across from the park and ocean for swimming, jogging, and just hanging out. Next door is a great collection of restaurants and cafes located in a semi-public garden (and downstairs a very nice local sushi spot). The street life can be lively which we appreciated but may not be for everyone but we'll be back.
