About Mike and Rie
We purchased this condo in 2010 from the former owner while we were staying in the unit, however, we just listed the unit on VRBO Sep, 2013. We met in Hawaii, got married, lived in Japan, and now we are living in Maui with our baby girls. Mike is a United States Marine Corps Veteran who has lived in Hawaii for more than 20 years. Rie speaks Japanese and English. She is originally from Saitama, Japan. We both attended Hawaii Pacific University where we earned our Masters Degrees in Business. We enjoy the beach, tennis, golf, snorkeling, driving around the island, and eating out. Our new additions; Maya was born in January 2013 and Nina was born in December 2014 are now our main hobby. We would be happy to help you with anything you would like to know about the islands.

Why Mike and Rie chose Kihei
Like you; we came to visit or find a place in Maui. This is the first place we stayed. Clean, cozy, central A/C, fully furnished, steps to the beach and you can see the ocean from the unit. There is a nice pool/jacuzzi and a sauna. One great benefit is that the complex provides a concierge at the front desk area to help you with all the island activities you are interested in. We enjoyed it so much, we ended up buying this unit. This unit is in close proximity to great beaches, grocery stores, and restaurants and is only a 20 minute drive from the airport.

Great and inexpensive place to stay!
Mike and Rie were great and had the place equipped with everything we needed.
Awesome service - just as advertised
The listing was exactly as advertised. The unit is very well stocked - towels, chairs, cooler, beach toys, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, condiments and kitchen tools, blender etc. Unit was very clean. No concerns at all. I guess the only negative would be that the bed is a little uncomfortable.
There was some plumbing scheduled in the condo complex while we were there and Mike went above and beyond to make sure we were ok and accommodated us completely. He ended up putting us up at a different unit for the last few days of our stay. And honestly the unit we moved to was bigger and the location was better. So we very much appreciated the effort to make sure we were happy and comfortable. To be honest dealing with Mike was probably the best service through vrbo (or similar) we’ve ever had. Thanks!!
Honeymoon in Paradise
Our 2 week vacation/honeymoon from Nov 10-24 at this property was beyond amazing!! From easy checkin to absolutely everything you could need in a condo!!! This place was Amazing we have not one bad thing to say.. Maui and Kihea is a great place to stay. This area and our condo on the waterfront is Awesome!!! We BBQ dinner most nights and always ended our evening with a Hot Tub dip. Safeway Steaks are Golden!!! Communication with owner Mike was no problem before trip and when here we never had to talk to him, just an email telling him we were in and everything was Fabulous!! Enjoy your stay here and Do Not Stress the small stuff like condo renovations ongoing!!! This property is amazing and we walked beach, saw Huge Turtles on beach 2 properties over every night!!! We will definitely be back Mahalo Mike and Rie from Nova Scotia Canada
Happiness is... not having to worry about your accommodations in Maui! This is the place.
I really enjoyed my stay here, and would recommend this for any solo or duo travelers.
First, Mike and Rie are very responsive and answered any questions I had within the hour of asking them (usually within 15 min). When you’re traveling solo, this is especially reassuring.
The information was straightforward and easy to understand and was provided about a week or so before I arrived and then unit access was a couple of days before. The check-in process was a breeze (it did take me a couple of days to check in officially with the front desk as their hours are 10-4 and I was out and about during those hours), but the front desk didn’t seem to mind when I finally did catch them.
Second, the place is clean and exactly as described. The air conditioning unit is very easy to control. Linens and towels are provided. There is even a blow dryer (so no need to bring your own like I did and save the space in your suitcase). All of the appliances work so I was able to cook all of my meals and grocery shop to save costs.
Third, there is a pool and sauna and lots of barbecues so you have a nice outdoor getaway right in the central part of the property. There is even a sand volleyball court should you wish to play.
Fourth, free parking and great access to the beach! The beach is just a short walk across the property and it’s beautiful sand and not busy at all. You can head back and forth to the unit so you’re not having to pack and hail everything all at once.
Overall, having this place for the week as my home base was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for better accommodations for what I needed.
Thank you to Mike and Rie for sharing your place and making this an unforgettable week!
Love this condo
I loved being further north with less congestion. Great sunsets and a big back yard. Condo was immaculate and had everything I could possibly need.
Perfect for my stay.
Mike was the best person I've delt with in renting.
Had a question about something and he answered right away. Something was broke and he came within the hour to fix it. Even nicer in person, I can't say enough things about the owners.
Studio had everything I needed and more. Extremely well stocked .
Beach was our backyard!
I will definitely rent again from them again!
