Location was fantastic right on the water. Place needs updated furniture has been used and kitchen is pretty old But functional. Beds were decent. Bathrooms need some updates too. Overall a good place to stay I would stay again just might look for a more updated unit in the building.

We so enjoyed our vacation in Maui and the condo was everything we wanted. It was well equipped and comfortable and all correspondence with the owners was timely. We fell in love with Maui and the location of this condo was amazing. We were able to have this place as our base and explore the island. The place was lovely and comfortable and we enjoyed having the pool and beach right there. I would definitely recommend this condo and hope to come back. Thanks for being a big part of making a dream come true 🙏❤️

The Maui Moon Oceanfront Condo is a very lovely condo and was just as pictured. The location was great. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the lanai in the evenings. Absolutely beautiful view!! The condo is stocked with most everything a person could want. We would definitely return to this condo if we are lucky enough to make it back to Maui.

Location was fantastic cleanliness was fair. My wife found a juice bottle in the couch and the floors were a little dirty. The box spring on the king bed needed replacement and the bathroom shower was leaking.

Our family really enjoyed our ten day stay. The property is right on the beach as advertised and is in a great central location on Maui. The beach has a shallow, rock enclosed “fish pond” area that is great if you have small kids. There are sea turtles that sun themselves on the rocks every day and they also swim in the rock enclosure. You can also walk miles in either direction on the beach. The condo had everything we needed. The a/c worked well but you can also open up the windows and let the fresh air pass through. We did not hear any noise from any neighbors the entire time. There is also an excellent Indian restaurant (Monsoon Bar & Grill) right at the bottom of the elevators. There are BBQ grills both on the roof and down by the pool, which I saw them cleaning daily. The property staff were very nice and helpful. Parking was free and all you have to do is get a window permit from the office. We highly recommend this property.

Second time staying in this unit and it was as nice as we remembered from the last time. Great location and nicely appointed and maintained. Will very likely be back again.

We LOVED it! The bay was quiet and not too deep so it was perfect for all ages! It is a nice central location so easy to drive to Paia or Ka'anapoli for the day. We spend many days in Kihei as well. The VRBO was perfect and we could literally hear the ocean waves from our bedrooms. It was beautiful and I have already recommended it to friends!

Amazing trip at a wonderful location. This condo was in a perfect spot to access everything in Maui. The condo was clean, very quiet and had an amazing view of the ocean. The property owners were easy to communicate with and provided great recommendations around the island. We would definitely stay here again. Mahalo for a great trip!

My husband, aunt and I stayed at this beautiful condo for 10 days. We wish it had been longer! This condo is exactly as described and pictured but honestly, even more stunning in person! It was absolutely spotless upon our arrival and provided so many essentials that most rentals we’ve stayed at are missing, which we really appreciated. Our aunt slept on the sofa bed which worked out perfectly. She said it was very comfortable and the owner provides additional sheets, blanket and pillows! We all loved our having our coffee on the large balcony every morning, listening to the ocean waves below, taking in the magical view while my husband thoroughly enjoyed whale watching and spotted numerous whales every single day! One of my top priorities when searching for a rental was finding a condo located on a beach for our morning walks. I was so pleasantly surprised that the beach in front of this complex actually stretches for at least 2 miles! We stumbled upon several large turtles resting on the sand, which was such a treat, and one was sunning itself on the beach area right next to our building. We dined at so many fabulous restaurants in Wailea which is only a 15 minute drive from the condo. There’s an upscale shopping mall there as well! The location of this condo is perfect and loved that the condo complex was meticulously maintained as well. We look forward to reserving this beautiful condo again when we return to Maui! Thank you for an incredible stay!

We had such a wonderful stay in Maui. Jackie was great! She was easy to communicate with and made sure we had everything we needed. The property is just as described. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and drinking our morning coffee and then taking a walk on the beach. It was great having a private beach. We saw sea turtles on the beach several times on our walks. I highly recommend Jackie and this property. Thank you!

The view is amazing, sitting on the deck watching the ocean and activities was a great way to pass time in between activities. The beaches were nice to walk daily and watch the turtles. The pool was a great place to cool off. The condo and building is very well taken care of and accommodated our family well.

The ocean view was spectacular. Condo was dated but clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and good quality cookware and knives. Bed was super comfy. Could have used more towels and the beach towels were great for the pool but not for the beach. Thanks for providing beach chairs, umbrella and cooler! We would definitely stay again!

Great condo for a family stay. Much quieter location than right in town. Nice to have the chairs and coolers etc….plus all the extra goodies left by previous groups. Does not have A/C but the breeze does blow through the unit. Note check out time in 10am which seems quite early I think. 11-noon seems to be the standard. Overall great spot, great condo, great manager.

Stayed for 12 days at this location in Kihei! First time staying at this condo complex. Place was perfect for us and our two adult children. Perfect location on beach with a great view off our deck. Walking along beaches was outstanding (turn left to walk along Sugar beach, or right to walk along beach into central Kihei). Two bathrooms worked perfectly between 4 adults. Will happily stay here again!

The moment we walked into this condo and saw the view we felt instantly relaxed. The view is INCREDIBLE! So is the location as the complex is situated one two nice beaches. One of the beaches has an ancient Hawaiian fish pond that blocks the waves and is perfect for young children and turtles, who we saw there daily. Unit could use a fresh coat of paint but has everything you need for a dream stay. Totally recommend.

It was fabulous to have both beachfront access and a nice pool to be able to choose from each day. We also saw whales from our balcony one morning which was a special surprise. The property was well maintained and the one night the property lost power, they were able to fix it in a relatively short period of time.

Thank you James, for allowing us to stay at your condo in Maui. The kids enjoyed the beach very much and it was great for kids as the waves were just right. The beach in-front of the condo is good for kids! We took our morning walks along the beach then hung out on the beach the rest of the morning. There was plenty of room in the condo and all the things we needed to get us started was there. James is a great host and very helpful and great communication! Above and beyond! Thank you again for sharing your place and we would not hesitate to go back there again in the future. We love Maui!

Feb 23-28 2024. This condo was perfect for us! The decor was in my favorite beach colors - even the dishes/ coffee cups were a beautiful turquoise. The king bed was heavenly. The linens/ towels were exceptionally nice. Everything was in working order and very clean. The washer and dryer in the unit were helpful. We literally watched whales from the lanai. It was perfect for sunset! All that being said, May was a super host! She communicated quickly and was very thoughtful. I wouldn't choose anyplace else if we are lucky enough to return. Thank you May!

This was the perfect stay in Maui! This apartment was well stocked from the kitchen to the beach toys/gear. Location was perfect with the only small complaint being parking can be hard to find(especially with a larger vehicle) in the evening. Host was amazing. Quick to respond to messages both before and during our stay. This was our first trip to Maui and we hope to come back and stay here again.

Our stay here was awesome! Super easy check in process, the condo was very clean with all of the amenities, including everything you need for the beach. Just a few steps to the beach, and the lanai was lovely for morning coffee watching the water. We had an amazing time here!

This location is amazing because you are so central. You are never more than an hour from any excursion you want to do. The condominium is really nice and has a nice beach as well. The only downside is this area is very windy

The beach right outside has so many turtles it was great! Wish there was a hot tub but the unit was easy to get into which was so nice and not too far from activities!
Casey C.
March 2024

The location is fantastic. The supplies in the suit are limited. We didn’t have the pool code and the TV didn’t work. With trying to communicate with the property manager - we actually didn’t get any response to any questions until after we had checked out 5 days later - which meant we couldn’t use the pool. Otherwise the space and location were great. Thank you. 😊

Have been to Kihei a few times before where we've stayed closer to main business area. This condo is a little further up S. Kihei Rd. Great thing about that is it is very quiet at night. Don't get the road noise/revellers/beach goers that tends to happen further down the road. Short 2 minute drive to shopping. Fanatastic set up. Lots of options for cooling; fans, AC etc. Breeze off the lanai is wonderful. Really well kept. Extremely comfortable bed. Great amenities and well stocked with all the kitchen/beach needs. Morning and sunset views are spectacular - whales early morning 500 yds off the lanai, turtles sleep on the aritifical reef that surrounds the mini beach right in front of the Menehune. Parking excellent. Owners really easy to deal well and are very welcoming. Will stay there again.

Nice condo with everything we needed for our stay , Condo was clean and appeared to be recently remodeled. Nice having beach chairs and boogie boards available.
Monte S.
March 2024

We absolutely loved this unit and all the amenities of the facility! We have 4 kids (age 7-13) so the ground floor unit was perfect for our family. It truly extended the living space with the well kept green space for lawn games. It is right off the pool and ocean access. The ancient fish pond in front of the resort made all of us enjoy the ocean so much more with a safe swimming area.. not to mention all the sea turtles that use its rocks for sunbathing every day!! The beds were beyond comfortable, even the sofa bed! The unit was supplied with more starter supplies than we have ever seen before.. beach chairs, snorkels, boogy boards, laundry, and kitchen essentials. We absolutely recommend this location and unit! Thank you so much for making Maui an unforgettable experience for our family!

As soon as we walked in, we were swept away by the view out over the water. I gave this VRBO a 5 star rating. However, I do want to mention that the stove top elements on the electric stove are not working the way they should, won’t simmer food until set to at around 6 or 7, which is very high. Also, the dryer doesn’t do a good job of drying towels, clothes, etc. Again, probably in need of replacing. I wouldn’t walk barefoot in condo, as our feet became dirty real fast. One other thing, the beds are hard spring mattresses. Difficult for a person who might be side sleeper. With all that said… very well stocked Kitchen, etc. Perfect area close to many things, and good communication with the owners. Yes, you could Whale watch from balcony. Overall very nice place, despite a few things needing replacement.

We have visited Maui before, but it was our first time in Kihei. We loved Joe’s condo and the location. The 5th floor view was amazing. It fit our family of 4 perfectly. We had everything we needed including 4 beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels. In addition the entire 7th floor is a viewing deck with picnic tables and BBQ grills. It offers a 360 degree view of Maui. Great for whale watching. In addition, there is a cove on the beach in front of the property which is great for turtle watching. We saw turtles swim by every day. Kihei is central to everything. Joe was an amazing host. He sent detailed information prior to our stay that included links to local restaurants. He also offered is a late checkout which was ideal since our flight home was at 9pm. We would definitely rent this condo again. Great memories.

This motel is a two story motel over the top of a restaurant that is also owned by the motel. As I arrived in the late Sunday afternoon and the restaurant is closed on Mondays I cannot comment on that part of their business. The motel room was plain with cinder block walls, but the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There was a step in shower in the bathroom and a TV with a router and included wifi. The wifi was adequate, but as I got in late and left early I really did not use much of the facility. It had a through the wall air conditioner that worked just fine and the motel reached out and contacted me the day of arrival and was friendly and professional at check in. I'd say it's overpriced for the facilities, but you have to take into account location, and competition. It was the most reasonably priced motel in an area of unreasonably priced lodging choices. LOL I would stay there again.

The property was well equipted, everything we needed was available. Our only issue was the condo was not completely cleaned prior to our arrival. Beds were unmade, bathroom sink dirty, laundry in the washer and if you walk around the condo barefoot like they ask your feet will get dirty. The view was fantastic!

This unit is in a central location. The oceanfront views and beach access were amazing. It was exactly what we had hoped for. Plenty of space for 5 adults to feel comfortable. Watching the turtles play in the water each morning, the whales playing about each day created memories of a lifetime.
