About Court Roberts

I grew up on the west coast of Southern and Northern California, I LOVE the ocean and sailing. Ever since I visited Maui I have been going back to vacation as often as I can. As our family traveled, I found Hawaii to be the perfect place. I couldn't get enough of the ocean. I was just amazed as a kid the first time I went snorkeling - I thought, 'Cool, it's like swimming in giant fish tank!' There was no question, someday I would live and vacation in my own 'Hawaii beach house.' I hope you'll enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer. I sure do. I think You'll want to keep coming back too!

Aloha and Mahalo nui loa

Court Roberts, Arizona/California (623) 363-8000 Direct Line

Court Roberts purchased this condo in 2007

Why Court Roberts chose Kihei

The perfect location. The floorplan layout of Village By The Sea rooms are not long rectangles like most Kihei condos – much, much better in terms of feeling like you’re in a home and not a box. You’re oceanfront on a sand beach also. Close to shopping and dining and a great oceanfront and mountain view right from the condo. We take great pride in providing our guests with a high quality, clean, comfortable and well stocked accommodation. You will feel very much at home during your stay. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hearing from you. The Weather in the resort areas of Maui (Kihei, Wailea and Kaanapali) is warm all year round. Winter high around 81 low around 64 ocean water 75 Summer high about 88 low about 69 ocean water 79 The most rain is in December and January, while the least rain is in June through September. When it rains in the resort areas of Maui, it sometimes only lasts 15 minutes, though it can rain all day in the winter. However, the weather can be completely different on another section of the same island. Each island has a windward side that gets most of the rain. On the chance that you might get a rainy day, you could bring a small umbrella or light raincoat. Call 866-944-5025 for Maui weather. Try many of the dozens of beaches. Go to Beach in the south part of Kihei, where it rains much less and If it is raining even in Kihei and Wailea, go further south, past the Makena Beach, to Big Beach (Makena Beach Park), where it practically never rains. Lots to see and do so try something new every day while visiting Maui Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

Views!! The views from this unit are some of the best. Whale watching anyone? Close to Shopping, restaurants and amazing snorkeling and diving. Amazing Sunsets and Maui Hawaii Ocean Views.


Maui is composed of two half-islands (east and west), joined by a wide valley. Maui is 48 miles long and 26 miles wide, or six miles at the narrowest point of the valley between the bays (728 square miles). The population is 155,000 residents, plus 42,000 tourists. The largest city is Kahului (population 20,000). Maui is the second-largest Hawaiian island. Over 2 million tourists come to Maui each year. The airport you will fly into is in Kahului (airport code letters OGG), in the northeast corner of the central valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had a wonderful time on Maui! Court's place was a comfortable and quite place to stay and we enjoyed many GORGEOUS sunsets from the lanai. We loved staying In Kihei and it made a great home base for exploring the island. Excellent restaurants and beaches near by, without all the traffic. The beach on the condo property was nice for a morning dip and beach walks in the evening. Everything we needed for cooking and going to the beach was available in the condo. We had a wonderful wonderful time here.

Not very happy

  • 2 of 5

There was a big noisy bucket lift right accross from the lanai and workmen working on the building with jack hammers. Very noisy!! Had we known about this before we could have made an informed decision about renting or not. Instead we arrived and had to deal with this all week. Better communication from Court would have helped.

The condo itself was nicely renovated and clean. The overall property will be lovely when the work is completed. Awesome ocean views.

Would consider staying here again but not until all renovations to the building are done.

Beautiful oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place that was spotlessly clean and had everything that you need. The kitchen is very well stocked if you plan to do any cooking. It has a very nice pool area and a beautiful beach. Some reviews said it wasn’t much of a beach but we really enjoyed morning walks on it and it’s about 3/4mile long. You get beautiful sunsets every evening.

There was some construction going on in our building but it really didn’t bother us since we were gone during the day. We had one small issue with our code to get in and it was quickly resolved. Would definitely stay here again. It was a great location and easily accessible to many places. Many beautiful beaches a short drive away. One couple told us about Ulua Beach which was one of our favorites for snorkeling. We had turtles swimming right up next to us. We also loved Makena State Park and Ahihi Bay. All of them not too far of a drive. Also there are lots of great restaurants that are very close. We had an amazing week in Maui and really loved where we stayed!!

wouldn't stay here again

  • 1 of 5

It was our first time to Hawaii, booked this place, realized we had the dates wrong so we messaged Court (the owner) on the app and iCloud to see if the dates could be extended, took quite a few days for him to reply before he suggested we book his other place that was more expensive. In hindsight very glad we did not extend an extra day. The final amount on our Canadian Visa after all the service fees, cleaning fees etc and the exchange rate, was over double the listed price per night! (maybe we could have afforded Kanappali after all!). Prior to our arrival we texted Court to confirm the door code (his email suggested it would be the last 4 digits of our phone number), again no reply, absolutely nothing. We go there and the door code obviously didn't work, luckily the property manager Alana (or whoever she is) was able to get us in, apparently the door lock has been having problems and Court was supposed to fix it (regardless the suggested door code in his email was unconfirmed & wrong). The condo is as the pictures suggest, clean and presentable. Unfortunately clean and presentable doesn't make it worthwhile, on the day before checkout, for some reason we got kicked out of Netflix, we couldn't get into the laundry room with the code, the same code also would not let us into the hot tub, we had to go talk to the neighbour to get their code just so we could do some laundry. We're definitely glad we didn't pay for any more nights here, we would not recommend this place especially since there are plenty of other locations and condos within the area....lesson learned. What a terrible communication experience with the owner.....or lack of communication.

** can't figure out how to change the "heart" from loved it to not really**

Poor communication from the owner about construction

  • 2 of 5

The property and Court’s condo is beautiful. We enjoyed that part. What was concerning for us was the lack of communication from Court about the construction and lack of AC that would happen during the week of our stay. We were here from a Tuesday to Tuesday. Saturday and Sunday were the only days we didn’t have the grinding of walkway floors from 8 am to 4 pm. The dust was horrible. I text Court about what was going on and he never responded and still hasn’t. We are so disappointed on his lack of communication with us about the construction.

We felt this wasn’t normal from Court as we are repeat guests in his condo. This is the only reason why I am giving the rating of our stay a 2 instead of a 5.

We hope in the future Court will give his guest ample notification to make changes or a discount for such inconveniences we had to put up with. After all, you go to Hawaii to relax and unwind, not to feel like your in dentist chair all day.

To top it off a thunder and lightening storm came through last night and knocked out the power at 3:00 am, it’s almost 7 am the day of check out and still no power. That’s not Court’s fault...but with all of the above it’s really heart breaking.
