Stellar views, kitchen, amenities
My wife and I spent a week here in October. We had a fantastic time here and were surprised every day by the pleasant touches and design of this unit!
First, the kitchen. We like to cook together and this is one of the best vacation rental kitchens we've ever used. Abundant with useful tools and thoughtful touches, you could easily cook for a family in here while enjoying the stellar ocean view. There were some minimal food staples but plan to supply your own ingredients.
Second, the supplies. Plenty of beach towels, a foam cooler, good chairs and umbrella, even ice packs in the freezer. Laundry soap for the coin-op down the hall, plenty of pillow choices, it was stocked. (A bit short on extra TP though.)
The location, central and quiet, was just right for us. 20 minutes to most things in central and south Maui so we had lots of options for where to go. And that view! We barely left the unit some days and felt like we had everything at our fingertips.
The property managers were helpful and responsive, providing plenty of information and were good communicators on the phone. When we booked the unit it had 0 reviews and we felt like we were taking a chance, but it turned out better than we expected at nearly every turn. Would love to come back!
YSK: The beach out front is quiet and great for long walks, ok for swimming/snorkeling/boogieboarding (can't beat the convenience though). It does get a bit windy in the afternoon/evening esp. on the north end. There is some decent snorkeling up by the Kihei Sands. The roosters across the street crow incessantly in the morning, bring earplugs.
Some opportunities for improvement:
The mattress is a bit saggy. When we called about it they brought a foam topper but it didn't end up helping. We slept ok regardless, but it stood out compared to how nice the rest of the unit was.
There aren't many locations to hang wet things. We ended up draping our stuff over the chairs on the lanai. Some hooks would go a long way.
The A/C seemed loud and had to run almost constantly. It kept the unit comfortable but at some noise cost.
The wifi given in the welcome packet didn't work, but the one on the ISP-provided device in the condo was fine.
