Recent Royal Mauian Reviews


This was our second time to Maui but our first time in Kihei. We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Mauian and felt it was a great location to beaches, shops/cafes, restaurants and daily excursions. Anita’s condo was very clean and well equipped. We really enjoyed the great view of the beach and sounds of the ocean while eating out on the lanai. We had a great time playing with our grandkids at the beach and were grateful for the chairs & umbrella provided in the twin bedroom. No A/C was not an issue for us, because we kept the fans on and windows & slider cracked a bit to create a draft for the breeze to go through. The grounds are well kept and quiet. Our only issue was for a “heated pool,” it was still a bit too chilly for swimming. That said, we would definitely consider staying here again if we return to Kihei. Thank you Anita for opening your place up for others to stay at.

We stayed at this condo for a week and absolutely loved it. The kitchen was fully stocked and beach items were available. We took full advantage of the snorkeling gear. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This was our first stay in Kihei and we thoroughly enjoyed the location. We liked being directly on the ocean with wonderful views of the ocean and the whales. We also enjoyed having the grassy area around the condos and the adjacent park where we could enjoy the evening sunsets. My only suggestion is that the kitchen could use a few additional non-breakable serving dishes to take outside for those sunset picnics. Otherwise the condo was well furnished, comfortable and enjoyable. Would definitely stay again.

This condo is wonderful, it's the perfect location between Kamaole 1&2, with nothing but ocean view out your window! The kitchen is well stocked and the washer/dryer is very convenient. There are beach chairs, coolers, and an umbrella. We loved sitting on the lanai and watching the sunset and the whales. The AC units work well and are very quiet. We spent three weeks here in January 2024,we will be back!

The condo is freshly updated and we loved being close to the ocean and hearing the waves roll in. With the high humidity the AC and ceiling fans in all rooms kept us super comfortable. I highly recommend this condo to everyone.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We are residents of the Big Island and wanted to revisit Maui after many years. This condo was our base area. It has been totally redone and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen has every detail handled. Good bed and nice linens. The unit is truly ocean front. Roof top pavilion is perfect for sunsets. The management staff was very responsive and courteous. Very easy to work with. Highly recommend this rental.

We were able to walk to restaurants, shopping, and beaches. This also means lots of road noise. The pool is very lackluster but the grounds are lovely. Spotted several sea turtles and humpback whales, and enjoyed beautiful sunsets. The condo itself is tired and needs updating. The sheets would not stay on the mattress during the night so every morning the bottom sheet would be crumpled and pulled away. Not a huge thing, but an annoyance.

AC not cool enough

The location is A+, right between two terrific beaches (Kamaole 1 and 2), with beautiful ocean views. It's directly across the street from numerous restaurants and shops, so you don't need to get in the car if you don't want to. It's on the top floor, so there's no noise from people above you, and it's on the beach side of the street, so you hear the ocean instead of cars. The condo itself is clean and modern and up to date. Air conditioning and fans keep it nicely cool. Kitchen is nicely outfitted. Plenty of things you might need like beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. Property owner was very responsive and helpful with all of our needs.

We had a great visit to Kihei. The condo was lovely. Updated, well-stocked, and clean! The view was fantastic! Enjoyed watching whales right from the Lanai. We had a concern about the fridge and Barbara addressed it immediately and got a repair person out to the condo. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

First of all, the view was incredible. The property was clean. The building itself is older (50 years), but the unit was updated. There was only one small working elevator. One suggestion: Instead of putting a sign above the bathroom sink that it drains slow, why not just fix it?

From start to finish we had an amazing stay at this lovely 2 bd 2 bath condo. Our hosts were fabulous and made everything extra special for us. The unit is pristine and well laid out. The kitchen in equipped and modern and the bedrooms and living areas are stylish and comfortable. The bathrooms are clean and contemporary. This location in Kihei is our favorite allowing for beach walks and great dining and shops near by. We can’t say enough about how wonderful our hosts were. We are truly grateful to have found this spot and will definitely return.

This was our third time staying at this unit of the Royal Mauian. Please see my past reviews for more details. Overall the Condo is excellent and is exactly as described and shown in the pictures. It has been nicely upgraded and had everything we needed. The location of the complex is amazing with wonderful ocean views and a short walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Communication with the owner is always very prompt and helpful.

Our family vacations in Kehei every couple of years. This is the first time we've been in this unit and it was wonderful. The views are fantastic and Lucy was wonderful to communicate with. It's not the nicest accommodations you can get but it's all about the view and convenient location. The Kamaole beaches are wonderful for sunning, swimming, and snorkeling. It's an affordable place with a million dollar view. We hope to come back!

This place was paradise found. The view from the lanai and the central location to beaches, pool, shops, restaurants… could not have been more prefect. The unit is a bit dated but was nice, clean and well-stocked with most anything you might need. The hosts were very nice and responsive. I would love to come back again and stay here for sure.

Bucket list family vacation achieved! This experience was flawless. The condo was perfect for our family of 4. We were situated in the perfect location for walking and driving, whatever our mood. Everything we needed was in the condo and more! Tammy is an excellent host and we will be back!

January 2024

We have stayed at several units in this building and 516 was hands down the most updated with modern and special touches. Location is everything, and, while we usually stay on the 6th floor, one big advantage with the 5th floor is you don't get noise from chairs being moved around on the rooftop deck. The unit has A/C, but we never used it once, the unit kept plenty comfortable with just the windows and doors open, taking advantage of the ocean breeze. Everything is high tech, including state of the art TV and sound system, and automatic / electronic window shades. The owner is very communicative, attentive, and easy to reach. If you're looking for a well-designed, modern and comfortable condo in Kihei, this is the one!

We have rented lots of vacation homes and this condo was one of the best stocked we have had! The location was close to all we wanted and easy to get across the island to other activities. Watching the whales off the balcony was a definite bonus. Grills on the rooftop were very clean and well maintained. Thank you for the use of your condo!

We had a great stay at the condo. The location is the best we have had in the area and we’ve stayed at several other locations through the years. The condo was well appointed and had everything we needed. We will definitely try to stay here for future trips. The location is walking distance to all sorts of spots for shopping/food/drinks and right between two great beaches. Gretchen was very great to work with

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: Perfect location for a 2 BR condo on Maui. Unparalleled views from porch and MBR window. Walking distance to plenty of small food places, Auntie’s snorkel rental, and ABC market for the items you forgot. Very easy 30 minutes drive to airport. Much easier to do day trips from this location than the resorts on northwest coastline.Very clean unit w/updated fully stocked kitchen, including a few spices.Each bedroom has a king and were very comfortable. Not much storage in the MBR, one hanging rod with plenty of hangers, but no drawers or dressers other than the nightstands. We had to get creative for storing clothing they couldn’t hang. This drawback would not keep us from renting again, just a good heads up going in.The condo is situated in between 2 beaches and within walking distance to many be try good food spots, and is across the street from Auntie’s Snorkel rental and an ABC market for everything you could need they you forgot to bring.Everyone at Rentals Maui was super friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo itself was very nice, and, as many have mentioned previously, the gracious and welcoming hospitality of Kevin contributed greatly to our enjoyable stay. The reservation process was easy, and information and instructions were excellent. The condo is extremely well-located. We could walk out the building door to the beach a few steps away, or, in the other direction, along a walking path that stretched all the way to Wailea. It has been updated, yesterday from all appearances, as everything appeared fresh and new. The kitchen was VERY well furnished, and we greatly appreciated the olive and other cooking oils, herbs and spices, and salad dressings and condiments. Very much appreciated, too, were the grocery shopping bags. Make sure you look in all the cabinets--we found some bags immediately, but on the last day we opened a cabinet we had not looked in and we found more. Honestly, there was nothing we needed that was not there, including that the host supplies a beach umbrella, 2 boogie boards, 2 nice lawn chairs, 2 noodles, and a lovely lanai for sunsets. Cleanliness and comfort were excellent. Because of the way the building is shaped we did hear a little street noise from the bedroom and we could hear people walking by, but overall noise was not a problem. In sum, this was really a great place to stay and we enjoyed our time there very much.

This is the perfect location facing the ocean right between two beaches and shops/restaurants just a short walk away. We had a very relaxing stay and would definitely come again!

This is it! Look no further. Our family of 4 had the best trip here. Gorgeous views, easy check-in, excellent dining options just across the street. Two beaches to choose from just steps from the condo. In fact, we booked a snorkel adventure (and while it was great), the snorkeling in front of the condo was just as good or BETTER. We saw sea turtles every day, colorful fish, and had a blast lounging on the beach. Coolers and chairs in the condo were a lifesaver, rented boogie boards across the street, and the full kitchen was amazing. We watched the sunset on the roof, ate breakfast on the lanai, and watched movies every night. The washer and dryer made the trip stress-free, and the shave ice and gelato across the street were enjoyed every night by the kids. You will not regret renting this place — we will be back! 🌺 Mahalo!

This was a very comfortable unit with some nice upgrades. Only a couple of nit picky items like one of the kitchen drawers wouldn't stay closed and was mostly left fully open, the hot water frequently stopped working, and only 1 of 3 screen doors actually worked. But the nice accommodations included the ultra-quiet microwave and dishwasher and laundry machines. Also, air conditioners in both bedrooms! The window shades were electric and always worked but it took a couple of tries before figuring out how to use it for an individual window. Overall, this place was really nice and I would definitely recommend it.

With easy access to great snorkeling, beaches, stores and restaurants, this condo was the perfect spot for our family vacation. We have stayed in the Royal Mauian before and it never disappoints. We loved that the condo provided beach towels and beach chairs. The decor is a bit dated, but this did not detract from our visit and even seems somewhat to be expected in a beach location. The kitchen was well appointed - could use a few more outdoor cups. Our only bit of feedback is that the mattress in the Master is memory foam and was not kind to our backs. If you plan to visit when the weather is at its hottest, note that there is no air conditioning. Luckily the evenings were on the cool side for our visit.

Our 93 yo matriarch was with us in a wheelchair and we did not anticipate steps would be required to get to the apt. Otherwise, it was very clean and well kept. We had a plumbing issue that the manager at first declined to fix over the weekend; but with a little cajoling they got an emergency plumb repair and we were only inconvenienced for a few hours instead of waiting until Mon.

The Royal Mauian is by far one of the best locations to enjoy your time on Maui, we have stayed here countless times, this time we were able to enjoy 608 for the first time. The location of this unit is direct ocean front~you can watch the turtles from your lanai. The unit is very well appointed, clean and comfortably. Thank you for allowing us to share your slice of paradise~we would love to come back! Aloha!

The Royal Mauian 311 is a very comfortable, clean room. It was more than adequate for 3 people and it is arranged so that both bathrooms can be private. Christine was very responsive and accommodating. The rooftop barbecue area has amazing views. We would definitely book this unit again.

This place will not disappoint! It really felt like a home away from home and Kevin really is a superhost. Kevin was incredibly kind , welcoming and responsive throughout our entire stay for anything we needed or questions we had. We watched the turtles and listened to the ocean every morning while we drank our coffee - what a treat! Beautiful sunsets from the lanai as well! The lawn and beach around would fill with people but we could just grab a mimosa and watch right from our own spot. The location was also fantastic as you can walk across the street for almost anything you might need (restaurants, grocery store, alcoholic beverages, clothes and souvenirs, bakery, etc). But if you’re up for exploring further it’s very central to almost anything. While it’s fun to explore other beaches, the beaches on either side of the property were great and we typically just took our towels, sunscreen and some beverages to Kamaole 2 and had a wonderful time. Would definitely come back, and may even do so next year!

December 2023

I've never left a poor review but based on the cost of the rental, I was very disappointed. Beautiful property and location but was greeted by paperwork on the counter stating the windows were due be replaced. This should have been done years ago as you couldn't open the master bedroom windows for fear they might fall out and you couldn't even see through them towards the beach at Kamaole 1 because they were so dirty and corroded from years of salt spray. On the first night we were there, the lights on the ceiling fan in the master bedroom blew out. No big deal as I reported it the next morning. I was told the property manager would take care of this...but no, the lights were never replaced and the master bedroom had no overhead lights the entire stay. The entertainment system in the main room works fine but (very useful directions supplied) the volume on the TV was maxed out or close too that and there was no way to turn it down. In the master bedroom, it was opposite...no volume whatsoever. Not that we wanted to watch TV 24/7 but with the equipment there it would have been nice to utilize when needed. As stated when deciding to rent, there is no A/C which is okay in the master bedroom but it gets very warm in the second bedroom. Water pressure in the showers are very weak but get the job done in the long run. The rest of the unit and lanai was fine enough but considering the amount charged...there are much better options out there. Pretty disappointed!
