Aloha, this is Sigi and Dorli the delighted owners! We are originally from Austria but call San Diego our ‘home base’ for almost 30 years now. (“Ja wier sprechen noch Deutsch”.) With each passing year we are craving warmer climate, gentler oceans and the healing effects of that so very reliable sunshine nurturing our maturing bodies. We fell in love with Maui about 12 years ago and explored, investigated and mingled with locals to learn and understand this beautiful island from every angle. We discovered that the South Side has the most sunshine on the island, (which includes this South Kihei area) so we knew this is ‘just what the doctor ordered.’ Here are some of the most asked questions and unfortunately this site does not give me any room where to post this: ** What does it mean 'flexible CHECK OUT TIMES:?' *Standard Check-in is No earlier than 3:00 PM on arrival date. Check-out: NO LATER than 10:00 AM on the departure date. Please continue reading for more details.

Our resort does not allow luggage storage, sorry it's a liability issue
Dorli purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Dorli chose Kihei
1.Safety: The water of the beaches near the condo is calm (no undercurrent or big waves) and you can see the ground, which is SUPER important for me! (That would be Dorli and I need to know what I am stepping into!) Yes I am proud to say that we have tried ALL the beaches before investing in this location as there are so many options to choose from. We have been dragged out by a current or slammed with a surprising wave. Or should I say I have. Sigi took it like a man (no surprise there as he is from the same town then Arnold Schwarzenegger; and NO.. we never had a housekeeper so no worries but, I get ask this all the time ) To Sgi’s delight he can now leave me in the water alone attending to his rejuvenating 'power brake' (nap) under the beach umbrella while I frolic in the appealing ocean near the condo. He doesn’t miss the harsh awakening of my screams or the unsuccessful searches for my lost snorkel mask that got ripped off in a surprise ‘attack’ from an unsuspected wave. The water is save here. Yippee! It truly is paradise for all of us! * We love CONVENIENCE. The location of our condo allows us to walk to everything we need. Many top ranked beaches, visit stores to buy the perfect gift and splurge on many local and enticing restaurants, or just get that tempting mango ice cream . * WE LOVE the open floor plan of this condo, with top to bottom glass in front, it allows for the outdoors to come into the unit. * Private: Sometimes we just like to stay home and read a book or sun bathe in privacy and being up on the top allows for that. * I come here often by myself and feel completely save in our neighborhood as a 'single' lady. * It is pure bliss with a ‘don’t worry be happy kind of feeling in the air.’ Just wait once you are hear you will be humming it too.
What makes this Condo unique
This unit has one of the most UNIQUE floor plans open, friendly and you feel like on top of the world. As one guest put it, ‘you can’t stop smiling’! Complete privacy and incredible unobstructed views of the ocean and shoreline are so astoundingly striking and put us in awe still, every time we stay here. *We DON’T LIKE CROWDS! Our condo is just far enough north, to be away from the huge timeshares and resorts, which makes 'our' beach the least crowded. * Our unit is not facing S. Kihei Rd. so you will not be bothered by that street traffic plus with the bedroom is tucked away nicley in the back and super cozy and quiet. * We enjoy the safety of this building, as many of our neighbors are living here full time. There is always somebody home, doors and windows are open and the brake-ins you hear about Maui do not happen in a building like ours. * 4. I love doing yoga in the grass across the condo early mornings with the waves calming my mind while the first sunrays over Haleakala extend their golden rays along the horizon painting spectacular colors over the coastline. It's absolutely stunning and you have to come and explore on your own. It would be so lovely to see you here and we promise you the best service possible. By renting with us, you are keeping our dream alive and in return we will try our VERY BEST to offer you as much guidance, and service as possible to make your stay comforting and enjoyable from the moment you are planning this trip. We can provide you with valuable Maui insights especially if traveling for the first time. Meanwhile have a great Aloha Day and Malama pono.

Lovely Maui stay
The property is well situated in Kihei, with a short walk or drive to great beaches for sunbathing, swimming, paddle boarding, snorkeling or turtle watching. Great views from the balcony.
Nice place with a great view. Beware of owner.
The place has a good view and is in a great location. Really well stocked kitchen as well.
A few minor things could be improved. Some dishes in the shelf were soiled, there wasn't any bath soap stocked..
The kicker though was we got blamed with a nasty email from the owner for a pre existing clog in the bath tub.. And I got no concrete response or an apology from the owner even after she realized it was her fault. So please beware.
I expected a low review after all I gave him a 1 Star ranking and stated I would 'definitely NOT welcome him in my condo again!" (This is the first time in 14 years, which made me truly sad, but hopefully I can spare others.) My 'nasty email', was a friendly suggestion to remove their hair after completing a shower'. After all these years we have learned the importance of keeping plumbing maintained regularly as diverse guests have varied habits often related to their culture. To avoid unpleasant interruptions we inspect and snake our plumbing monthly. This guest reported a slow drain after spending a day in the unit and we responded within 2 hours while guests went out. My service removed a few handful of long black hair from the drain which resolved the issue right away. No tools other than a plain hand were needed! I was glad to inform guests via email of our 'repair'. Since knowing guests ethnicity and him not connecting the large bundles of hair with a slow drain I took the liberty to suggest that removing the hair after a shower will guarantee a perfect drainage. This was too offensive to him and he kept harassing and insulting me almost daily ever since. This continued into days after his departure even though I refunded him 100% of his Damage Deposit.
(Very odd since I reassured him the day after the hair removal, that we never charge for issues like that and I just wanted to make sure he understood what the problem was that caused the slow drainage and how to avoid it.)
Unfortunately this was inadequate and I assumed it was a language issue but reading his review we are all truly buzzled.
Because of his continued odd emails we were curios and we snaked the drain after his departure. We found absolutely nothing in there and appreciate that he understood our suggestion of ‘removal of his hair’ after all. They left the shower in perfect and clean condition and we are thankful for that.
With Warm Aloha and thank you for taking the time reading my responds.
Our first impression upon entering this cozy condo was "ADORABLE"! It felt very loved, and homey. and that's what we like when travelling! The view was great, got to see the sunset every night. There were beach chairs, snorkels, towels and boogie boards available to use, as well as condiments and the little things you'd need around the house. Thank you for letting us stay in your cute little place. :)
Great location & amenities! We would definitely stay here again. Mahalo Dorli & Sigi.
A little gem with a great view
We had a great time in this property which is perfect for a couple. Great views onto the ocean from the balcony and the living room, just a short walk or drive to nearby beaches, any beach gear you need is available in the condo, we really felt at home and wish we could have stayed forever there. The contact with the hosts via email could not have been better; they gave us lots of good advice and were simply very friendly. We warmly recommend this place (and from reading the guest book in the property, we are not the only ones since several guests have returned there many times).
Great location, and everything you need is provided.
You are walking distance to lots of cute little shops/restaurants (three brothers had an amazing happy hour menu), close to beaches, sitting on the lanai watching the waves in the mornings and evenings was the cherry on the cake.
The condo itself has everything you need - cooler, boogie boards, cutlery, playing cards, towels, honestly there wasn’t a single thing that we needed that wasn’t there. The condo was clean, having laundry in unit was great, there is a/c which was great on days there wasn’t much breeze. Most days though always a cross wind to blow right through the condo.
This was our first vacation rental and we were more than blown away by the properties.
tropical island yes but at the same time you can find all the comfort you need, from organic health food stores to great local restaurant and shops in any price range. My mom needs a hairdresser once a week, no problem there is one on the ground level and a masseuse as well. )
