Dated and needing attention
Over the years we have stayed at over 50 short term rentals in 11 different countries. We even have one that we manage ourselves.
"Wishes come true" was our hope for another wonderful stay in Kihei but the accommodation fell short on several fronts. While its location is ideal, the unit itself is dated and in need of repairs and upgrades.
The sliding glass door that allows access to the lanai was very difficult to move as the wheels were worn down so much over time. The screen door wasn't much better. When you did get outside the mat on the lanai was always wet either from a recent rain shower or from condensate from the old AC unit that vented on the lanai. Other condo owners neighbouring the unit have taken steps to have the rain water drain away from their lanai and have replaced old AC units. For us the result was we always re-entered the unit with wet feet on a tile floor.
Only three of the 9 sets of louvered window actually opened. The mechanisms on the others were seized up or broken. This significantly reduced ventilation while we were away from the unit.
One beach chair was an old aluminum lawn chair with plastic webbing. Some of the webbing was broken rendering it useless. The single Tommy Bahama chair was old and dirty, but functional. The umbrella worked well. We were told the snorkelling masks etc. were really for children. So was the boogie board.
Other frustrations included the limited number of drinking glasses, and being able to locate an ironing board, but no iron.
The couch is near the end of its lifespan.
While the condo was functional and in a beautiful location it is the little things that provide for a first class experience. Most of our short term rental experience has been first class.
This was not.
We are glad that our guest thought our condos location was ideal. It does rain in Hawaii and we cannot control that. AC units have condensation, the unit two above ours is either broken or they never empty the plastic container and it drips on to our lani. We have talked to the association about this on several occasions, including again this month. We are hoping they will address this situation.
We generally do not rent to children because we had damage in the past. People who speak to us personally about their children we will rent to them. While there is some snorkel gear available for guests, it is not something we advertise. Each year we get rid of any gear that is broken or faulty. Since we do not live there, we have only so much control over what is left in the closet.
We just got back from our condo December 16. There were 6 clear glasses, 4 blue glasses, 4 green plastic glasses and 2 tall plastic glasses. We are not sure how that constitutes “limited glasses”.
The iron was on the top shelf of the hall closet. Last year one of our guests stained the couch cushions and we could not clear it, so the couch in the condo was purchased new in 2019.
We were in Maui this month to oversee new tile being put in the bathroom, and we replaced the wheels on the sliding door. We do our very best to keep our unit in excellent condition. We are sorry this guest did not have that experience.
Best Vacation Ever!
Let me start off by saying this condo is in the best location on Maui! Kihei is centered allowing you to easily access all parts of the island by car, and the condo is perfectly located within 10min walking distance to beaches, shops, and dining! The condo is exactly as advertised - with the living room now tiled instead of carpeted. We particularly enjoyed the extras such as beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, snorkel gear, and pool noodles. What an awesome vacation and would definitely recommend this condo to anyone staying in Maui!
Natalie & Cole
We loved staying at Ed and Kathys condo! It had everything we needed. Snorkel gear, beach chairs, towels, small cooler, washer/dryer etc. It was nice and clean. Had everything we needed in the kitchen as well. Even a bbq area right outside the door in the courtyard. Fabulous location in Kihei. We could walk across the street to the beach or in any direction for shopping, and dining. I would definitely stay here again.
Best trip ever
Stayed for 2 weeks. Did so much stuff I need a vacation. The food on this island is outstanding. The condo we stayed in was in great shape and in a great location. The owners even checked in on us to make sure everything is going all right.
Thank you Scott, we would love to have you back and glad you had a good time.
Perfect condo for our family trip!!
We had an amazing stay at the condo! It was perfect for our family and had everything we needed to enjoy our time in Maui!! The location was awesome and was a quick 5 minute walk to the beach! We liked being able to walk into town and enjoyed the nearby restaurants! I would highly recommend this condo and appreciate all Ed and Kathy do to make it a wonderful vacation get away!!
Amazing vacation in an amazing location!
Thank you Kathy and Ed for sharing your beautiful condo with us! It was clean and had all the amenities we could have needed for our vacation! It is in a great location very close to the beach! The condo has beach chairs and all kinds of other great gear to use on the beach. We loved being on the ground level and the other units were quiet so it was a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. We would definitely recommend your condo to our family and friends and look forward to possibly staying there again in the future! Mahalo!!
