Wonderful Stay in Maui
We loved the condo. It had everything we needed for a 2 week stay in Maui. The location was great - close to other cities and across from the beach.
Beautiful and relaxing. Perfect place to get away with family or friends.
We have always loved staying at Kao Resort and this place did not disappoint. The beds were so comfortable and the Lania was our favorite spot every morning to have coffee and listen to all the birds. We can’t wait to come back.
We constantly strive to make each guest’s visit both pleasant and memorable. Receiving such a positive review gives us great joy!
Kihei stay at KOA resort 5B
First off, wanted to say a big thank you to Beverly for opening up her home for us to use for our first visit to Maui. My husband and I travel every year to a hot destination, but this was our first time visiting the islands with our two children aged 10 and 7. On arrival on the 1st ( we arrived finally around midnight) we had a bit of trouble finding the condo in the dark. But once we did, entry to the property was easy. Key code worked great, condo was stifling hot as no air flow. AC wasn’t on and fans weren’t operating. Was stuffy but we opened windows and managed to cool it off quite quickly. Overall, we were happy with the condo. It was very well equipped for a family of four. Beach chairs, boogie boards, beach cooler, sand toys and umbrella for beach were a HUGE perk for our family. The ground floor location was very close to the pool which our kids enjoyed a LOT. The outdoor BBQ were close to and we used them often. Grounds were well kept. Tennis courts were fun. General area with ping pong tables were a disappointment as we couldn’t locate paddles and balls for kids to play. Pool was fantastic. Our building was getting re roofed on our week there which was annoying during the day as lots of noise and garbage etc. Location of condo was across the street from the ocean. Short 5 min walk to the beach. Beach area isn’t the best. But Kamole Beaches 1-2-3 are a short 5-10 min drive south.
As far as condo itself, the bathroom was recently renovated. New walk in tile shower. Nice. Bedrooms were good size, beds comfy. Lots of pillows and extra bedding if needed for pull out in living room area. Wooden shutters in both bedrooms were rough shape. Needed replacing. Carpet in rooms. Gross. Very dated. Needed a good cleaning. The entire condo needed a good cleaning. Our light fixtures in kitchen were absolutely disgusting with dried food splattered on them ( we didn’t dirty them). Cupboards are white and show ALL the trim around knobs etc. Which were very dirty as well. Second bedroom had peeling wallpaper. Again very dated. Some tile in rooms would be a huge perk as well as new paint and shutters would make a world of difference. We had a tour of another condo. 2 F, I believe it was. And we were blown away at the cleanliness and how modern it was compared to ours. I would stay in that one next time. Our AC unit ( we only had the one in master Bedroom) was very old and the knob broke while we there. But our first experience was good overall! Mahalo!
A wonderful family-friendly suite just a stone's throw from the ocean
I stayed at this suite for a vacation with my wife and two young children, and this was our second stay in Kihei.
This is a clean, well kept, comfortably furnished suite that had everything we needed for a pleasant vacation. The unit is spacious and easily accommodated the four us with our gear.
The living/dining space is very nice, and the big TV with impressive cable package was perfect for rainy evenings in. There is a nice lanai space with patio furniture to enjoy the resort complex's beautiful greenery. The kitchen has all the basics for preparing meals, and there was a good range of kitchen essentials in the cupboard so that you didn't have to run out and buy absolutely everything.
The bathroom appears recently remodelled and is very nice and big, with an especially nice shower. The bath towels are nice and fluffy, and there is a good array of beach towels too. Having a washer and dryer was a big plus in our eyes too.
There are two bathrooms with comfortable beds and nice bedding. There is no central air conditioning, but as is often the case in Hawaii, the breeze coming through the windows and the ceiling fans are more than enough to keep the temperature comfortable. There is a window AC unit in the master bedroom which we used at night more for white noise than anything else. (The windows are not hermetically sealed the way they often are in colder climates which means sound can come through... this could be an issue for very light sleepers but we were always exhausted when we went to bed so it wasn't a problem for us.)
Wifi performed very well from all corners of the suite, and we were able to connect with no problems. The suite has a keypad for keyless entry which makes getting in very simple.
The complex itself is very nice, lots of lush greenery on the grounds, and there are nice recreational facilities including a nice, big swimming pool, hot tub and tennis courts. There is plenty of free parking, and the complex is a short 5 minute walk from some wonderful beaches. There are not many shops or restaurants within easy walking distance - other than one restaurant across S. Kihei Road, pretty well everything else is driving distance. But the location in Kihei is generally very good, with area attractions being a short drive away.
Dealing with the proprietor was very easy as she was always very courteous and welcoming. We appreciated the extra mile that she went for us.
We would definitely consider returning on a future visit.
Thank you Walter for the kind review. We strive to make each guests visit a happy and memorable experience and reviews enable us to sharpen those skills necessary to attain our goal. Your patience and kindness in the care of our unit is much appreciated. It would be our pleasure to recommend you as a future guest to any owner. We hope to be able to serve as your island hosts again on future visits.
Great place to stay, Close to everything. The place with clean and nice. It had everything of family needed and more. Thanks
My Condo experience
Overall a wonderful condo to stay in. The beds were all very comfortable, even the couch that made into a bed. Beautiful shower. Everything was there that we needed. Lots of toys for the pool and snorkeling, including beach chairs and umbrella.
Internet was great, no problem. The only thing that could be better was the lack of air conditioning. Only the larger bedroom had air conditioning. The other bedroom, kitchen and living room only had fans. On a couple of days, this was not enough to stay cool. We just left the air conditioning on in the one room and all the fans and kept the doors closed when we were gone and that helped keep the condo cool when we got back.
Overall, a nice place. We would stay there again.
Working with you to arrange your stay on island was both pleasant and enjoyable. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback. Our aim is to achieve a memorable experience for all our guests. Looking forward to the next opportunity of hosting you again.
