About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Why stay in a costly hotel when you can enjoy the comfort of this inexpensive one bedroom/one bath condo in sunny Kihei? This remodeled condo in the Kauhale Makai (Village By The Sea)Complex sleeps 2 and has a fully stocked kitchen. Upgrades include ceramic tile flooring, custom color paint and custom tile/glass block shower. The Unit (#108) has one free assigned parking spot just steps outside the lanai. You don't have to carry all of your heavy luggage and beach equipment up the stairs!! All linens are provided as well as beach towels. For those hot days and nights, you have CENTRAL air-conditioning to cool you down! Flat screen TV (39') and FREE WIFI IS ALSO AVAILABLE. The bedroom has a comfortable mattress and the queen size sofa bed has an upgraded mattress.

There are many other condos with high-end amenities priced MUCH higher per night. Our philosophy is simple..... we offer low-cost, clean and comfortable accommodations. Why spend lots of money on a condo rental when you spend such little time inside? This is the beautiful Island of Maui! Spend your time and money exploring all the sights and adventures that Maui has to offer!

Roomy and homey

  • 4 of 5

Full disclosure: They were in the middle of renovating the exterior of the building when I stayed but that had minimal effect on my experience. What it DID affect was the parking situation. While I could easily find parking nearby, I was not able to park in the designated stall which is literally right outside the lanai doors. GREAT parking location in general.

Size: Spacious for one, perfect for two

Bathroom: Really old and dated. There's no tub and the shower stall has no door or curtain. It's partially obscured by a glass wall so you have to step into the shower and in the way of the stream in order to turn the shower on. Be prepared to get hit with cold water if you're showering first thing in the morning. The water warms very quickly though and stays hot for quite a while

AC: OUTSTANDING. It gets cold really fast and the room stays cold for a while, remaining pleasantly cool even after being off all day.

Kitchen: New microwave and stove. The fridge and freezer are quite old and the dish washer is old enough that it's rusted inside. I didn't use it so not sure if it works.

Entertainment: Nice, big, flatscreen tv and awesome channels. Free wifi but the connection's a little sluggish for streaming sometimes. Not reliably consistent. There's a pool and the beach is maybe 150 yards away but I wasn't able to enjoy either of those things. There are 4 BBQ grills right next to the pool so ample space for grilling out.

Surroundings: Local eateries and shopping are in easy walking distance so I didn't even have to worry about whether there might be parking when going out on busy weekends.

Overall, I'd stay there again. I'd give it 5 stars if the place were given a few more upgrades/modernization (the shower, internet speed and the dishwasher, for example).

affordable, clean, convenient and quiet,

  • 5 of 5

This property was great! Centrally located, and cost effective! The ocean is steps behind the property and couldn't be a better fit for us. There was minor construction going on, but nothing that got in the way of our amazong vacation. This place was cozy and simple, exactly what we needed with so many activities planned during our stay. If you want a place thats affordable, clean, convenient and quiet, this is it. The host was very gracious and responsive to our questions and needs. Would def stay here again.

Enough Bang For Our Bucks

  • 4 of 5

First, the property itself has a good location on a relatively busy street, but one which takes you straight into the town of Kihei with its shops, stores, restaurants, parks, and beaches. Its landscaping is good enough with the inerte courtyards more lush and better cared for then then the outer perimeter of the property. A short walk across a grassy field takes you to a small but accessible beach that you can take long walks on in either direction. The shore is a little rocky, not easy to sunbathe or swim in. The pool facilities are very nice as is the barbecue area.

Our unit was worth the price we paid although a little rundown. If you are looking for high quality matching furnishings, you won’t find them here, but the bed is very comfortable, the couch and chair are good enough. The tv and cable service are fabulous! The fans in both rooms keep them reasonably cool, and the air conditioning works very well in both rooms. The kitchen has all you’ll need to prepare and store food. There are beach towels and chairs to take with you on outings.

Parking is adequate, although when we were there they had suspended the reserved parking policy, so there was a first come, first served approach that forced us at times to park further away from our unit than we liked. No real view from the two lanais because it is a first floor unit that only kind of faces the ocean. I did not like sitting out there because it is right next to the parking lot and a path taken by many people to the lot. If you want to sit and relax in a quiet, pleasant setting you’ll need to go to the pool areas the grassy field.

There are currently renovations on the outside of the buildings taking place. The work did not bother us because it was just far enough away that we didn’t hear much of the sanding they were doing, but we encountered equipment in various locations around the property. They are apparently behind in the work, so if you’ve been told the renovation work will not impact your unit, as of this writing, take that with a grain of salt.

We found the mangers of the complex to be very friendly and helpful. The same is true for the property management employees.

Now for the $64,000 question. Would we stay there again? Answer, most definitely If the rate was the same or slightly higher (once renovations are completed).

Good escape from pricy resorts

  • 4 of 5

This condo is a great accomodation option for travelling on a budget. Nothing fancy, just what you need and what you’d expect for this price range. You’d definitely need a rental car when staying at this condo as the beach isn’t really ideal for swimming and the pool area isn’t inviting; so driving to other beaches and areas of Maui is ideal. Unfortunately for us we couldn’t get the tv to work during our stay and the door to the patio wouldn’t open. There is limited natural lighting due to no windows and only two sliding doors which leaves the condo feeling quite dark. The two doors also face the car park so everyone can see you and into the condo if you have the curtains open. I’d recommend this condo if you plan on adventuring out everyday, it’s a good place to sleep and that’s about it. Mike is a great host and was very informative and helpful. I’d recommend this condo to a friend looking for cheap Maui accomodation for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for staying at my condo! I really wish you would have informed me or my Property Manager about the TV and the door to the patio. I would have had that repaired immediately so you were not inconvenienced during your stay. Mahalo for your rental Mike

Great Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

I have been going to Kihei for a long time and spending a varied number of months there and this stay had the best consistent weather that I have experienced in a long time! No rain to speak of and "just right" temperatures with not too much humidity!

Michael was always very quick to get back to me whenever I had a question or a concern that needed attention. This was my second time staying in this condo and I find it fits my needs very well! I am hoping to return to the same spot next year!

Great Lodging/Price

  • 5 of 5

The cost to stay here was very affordable and had everything we wanted. The location is right on the beach. Parking was 30 feet away from room. Room had plenty of towels and all the items you need in the kitchen. Although we barely use it but it was so nice to know that we have the option. Would stay here again. Owner was very responsive to questions and provided great customer support!
