Recent Koa Lagoon Reviews

We absolutely loved our stay here! This is our 4th time on Maui, and I think it was our favorite property. The lanai, and view from it, is absolutely amazing! The location was super convenient - not far from the airport and some of the best beaches just down the street. Close to everything we wanted! Also really liked the layout of the condo. We had one minor issue that was immediately resolved. The water heater wasn't working, but we contacted the owner (who was very easy to contact!) and we problem solved together and figured out that we just needed to reset the circuit breaker. Definitely would stay here again in the future!

Great location for ocean/whale views but NO sleep due to ROAD NOISE…bedroom is on the side of building as main beach road & no solid windows in this unit…just shutter glass. Take note of the neighbor…instal noise proof windows!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location with a fabulous view! It really needs updating, painting and a deep cleaning!

The Koa Lagoon Condominiums have the most beautiful views and the beach is wonderful. My room was very clean and comfortable - felt like home. I love that the pool was heated. This vacation has been such a fun and relaxing experience. I am hoping to come back again. I made a lot of great memories. 🏝️😎🐢

This was the third time we stayed at this property and the second time in this unit. Just as it was 2 years ago, it was a great stay. The unit is well appointed with everything needed for a wonderful vacation. Plenty of closet space. Games for families and beach chairs and toys for use in the sand. The whale watching from the balcony and sunsets - spectacular! My only suggestions: an extra rug in the bathroom and please clean the vent above the counter. We did have one minor maintenance issue, and Linda was quick to respond and appreciated the fact we figured out what was wrong. (She’s so friendly.) If you’re thinking of renting this unit - just do it. You won’t regret it.

Hello this property is beautiful and yes the view is amazing! That said we arrived at 11:00 PM, walked into the unit and first impression was not great. The floor grout was stained and made us feel uncomfortable to go barefoot . The bathroom did not feel very clean, the drain in the tub was broken (mechanical portion was not installed), the tub was stained and old, the walls in some areas are in need of a good scrubbing and paint, especially around the bathroom sink and trim. We did not feel comfortable to use the drawers or shelves in the bathroom. The kitchen is dated, but ok and stocked with everything you need, the living room was nice. The bedroom again is dated and did not feel the cleanest. The pillows felt old and the foam topper made the bed feel very hot to sleep in. There is a ceiling fan, but needs replacement. We did not use the dressers as there were were greasy finger prints all over them. There was lots of pluses here in the fact that they offer extra things to use for your adventures to the beach, however for the price you pay, they could be replaced when ripped and rusty. I bring this up because of the fees that are added had me expecting a totally clean unit. The next day when we looked out and saw the beautifully landscaped property and pool, it made things a little better. The deck and the view are definitely amazing, and we sat outside there at every opportunity, watching the whales breach. The beach has a few rocks, but you can’t control Mother Nature.

It’s difficult to decide what we loved most about this condo. Perfect size for two, for sure. Well stocked from the kitchen to beach accessories, yes. Clean and very well appointed, definitely. Pethaps

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo has a large lanai, with the most beautiful view, where we watched the sunsets and whales. The condo is old but everything was functional and was perfect for two people. The complex is very quiet with beautiful grounds and seems aimed at adults vs families. The beach is rocky and the water is swimmable, although we preferred to swim/snorkel elsewhere. There are a lot of restaurants and stores close by which is convenient.

very nice, clean, very comfortable one bedroom condo, conveniently located to many major attractions, not only in Kihei, but Maui itself. Condo was well appointed with some basics (oil, seasonings, tin foil etc). Grocery/liquor store as well as many restaurants within a couple miles. Awesome sunsets viewable from lanai with short stroll to beach as well as pool on property. AC units in living area as well as bedroom.

Overall a great stay. Roomy and great views of the ocean. There were some issues with the lock but they responded right away and got it taken care of. The only complaint is the primary bed is terrible! My husband and I couldn’t even sleep on it because it makes you roll into the middle, you can even see how tilted it is just when you look at it.

We loved staying here at the Koa Lagoon. The Lanai is huge and the view is stunning. There was a few blinds missing on the big windows and in late afternoon it gets really hot and the sun is blinding. We loved having beach chairs to use and having a washer and dryer was awesome.

We had a wonderful stay at this unit. We especially enjoyed waking up to the amazing ocean view and watching the beautiful Maui sunset from the Lanai. Condo unit had everything that we needed. There was a nice binder inside with recommendations for activities and restaurants. We found the beach right behind the building to be a bit rocky and quite windy. We opted to drive to Wailea beach (15 min drive away) on many of the days as it was much less windy and the sand was perfect for making sand castles. This building was close to a number of good restaurants in Kihei. We really enjoyed the breakfast bowls at Wow Wow Lemonade and loved the sushi from Miso Phat Sushi. We would recommend this unit to others wanting to stay in the Kihei area.

Can't say enough how much we loved this property. It was just perfect for all our Maui adventures. Just a short drive to all you need in Kihei. All the rest of the island is super accessible, too. And the views! We had breakfast watching the sun come up over the mountains and dinner watching it set against the ocean. It was magical.

Our stay in Maui was overall a good stay. We had issues checking in due to not receiving the check in email. Also there is in inconsistencies in the checkout time. Some places say 10 AM while other places say 11AM. The beach gear was nice to use however the beach umbrella was cheap and small. If your a light sleeper and don't like noise when you sleep then I would suggest you brief earplugs. The AC unit in the room a=is quite noisy when it starts up and runs. Otherwise it was a good unit!

Great location and the views from the deck were fantastic. The condo could use some upkeep, for example several windows didn’t open, one sliding door would not open at all.

The unit was well appointed and has the best views! We were there for 2 nights and the proximity to Kihei restaurants and shops was perfect for us. Easy check-in and check out. Had a great short visit with the convenience at Koa Lagoon.

Gorgeous & comfortable condo! LOVED the sunsets and WHALE WATCHING from the balcony! The condo was clean and the rental company Maui Life provided an adorable welcome basket. Comfy bed! Super nice to have chairs, towels, and a cooler provided too! My only complaint was that I emailed the company 3 times with minor questions about parking, the WiFi not working, and if we could get a late check-out over the course of our stay and never heard back.

We enjoyed our visit … this was the first time during whale season … wow!! Great views of breaching whales from our lanai!! The unit was as described. As a short term rental host myself, I feel the policy of NOT providing the essentials should be reviewed. All in all- a wonderful visit and highly recommend.

We stayed here in February. We could have just stayed on the property and saw everything we came see. From the 5th floor (Took the elevator) we were able to see many whales everyday from the balcony. The kitchen we fully stocked (Didn't see too many bowls for cereal) for all our meals and family to eat. Many beach toys in the closet and the beach chairs were my favorite. I would stay here again every time I come to Maui. Thank you for the great place.

From the beautiful sunsets to the well-equipped kitchen, everything about this condo was ideal. The unit was comfortable, well-equipped, and served as a great base for day trips all around Maui. The view from the lanai is spectacular and the property itself was well-maintained and provided direct access to the beach. I highly recommend staying here regardless of your itinerary on Maui.

The property was clean and well maintained. Our only complaint is that emails sent prior to trip via VRBO link went unanswered by Maui Real Estate who manages this particular unit. However, when we reached out by phone, response was timely ( thank you Thomas!). We would stay again. The view is amazing

I booked this vacation for me and my children of which both are young adults. This condo accommodated all of us perfectly and had all the provisions as far as gear to enjoy snorkeling and laying out on the beach below. The condo itself was clean and beautifully maintained. We had a great time!

On the quiet end of the beach in Kihue, Koa Lagoon was the perfect place for our vacation! The complex was well maintained and the staff were friendly and conscientious. We will definitely stay here again the next time we go to Maui!

Large covered Lania separated from condo with glass wall with big sliding doors. Very nice relaxing setting. Watched the sunset over the ocean and saw whales. WiFi worked great too. Convenient keypad access. Bus stop right next door. Use the Maui buss app to see time to next buss. Parking also included.

Location and amenities of the condo were great. However it was in need of some updating and the bed was terrible. So much that we went to wallmart to get a topper to get through the nights. Would definitely return only if the bed is replaced.

Perfect balcony. Well-stocked kitchen. A little far from town, but it's quieter that way. Not particularly walkable, so I'd definitely recommend renting a car. No complaints at all. Thank you for a great first visit to Maui!

We decided to take a somewhat last minute trip to Maui, and our usual property in Kihei was booked. So we took a chance and booked this property and we are so glad that we did. The condo is in a great location, has incredible views, and is very clean and well appointed. It has everything you might want or need, and is super comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book here again. Linda, the property manager, is a dream to interact with. She is incredibly pleasant, efficient, and really embodies the "aloha" spirit.

This place is just as pictured , very clean, beach right at the balcony with amazing views , very serene. The place comes with anything and everything you may need , from kitchen utensils , to beach chairs , umbrellas , blankets in case you go to the summit at Haleakala. So grateful we chose this place , the balcony sunsets took our breath away. Highly recommend this place !

The condo was really nice. Felt like a home away from home. The management (Carol and Krista) was extremely attentive and hospitable. Located right on the beach in Kihei, this was a perfect spot. We highly recommend this to any and all coming here. Thanks for a memory of a lifetime. See you next year. John & Joie C.

This condo is everything! This condo is Maui! The pictures don’t even do it justice. Sunset and sunrise on the lanai is stunning. You basically have a private beach because the most people we saw down there was 4. Spent a day at the pool too when it was extra windy and even that was perfect! The property manager was helpful and so nice! If I had to be picky, I would say that it’s time for a new mattress as there’s a giant lump in the middle. But that’s seriously stretching it as we both slept FANTASTIC too even though it took some time to get comfy. The small washer and dryer saved my life. Close to literally everything. We can not wait to come back! Will spend our whole trip here next time! Made our dream vacation a reality!

Beachfront, nicely kept grounds and facilities. Smaller building, not overcrowded. Everything clean and up to date. The condo is roomy, lite colored, everything is in good working order. Floor to ceiling windows facing the ocean. Close to shopping and food but not overwhelming. Quiet and restful.
