Excellent views, great Kihei location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit 12/28/17-1/4/18. We enjoyed the convenient Kihei location. The amenities were perfect for what we needed. The unit is away from the street noise, which was a plus. There are laundry facilities available in the building if needed, and there was an air mattress available when our kids argued over who could sleep where! We had an issue with the cable, a new company had taken over and with the holiday weekend the office was not able to get this handled before we left. We were kindly refunded some of our money for this inconvenience, and the kids learned that they can survive a week without television. Plenty of Maui sunshine for them to take in!

We downloaded an app called GyPSy Maui, that gave great narration on all the main thoroughfares on the island. We learned a lot about the area, culture and it gave great directions for Haleakala, Maalea Bay for snorkeling, the Road to Hana, and a trip to Lahaina. Our location was perfect to get to all these areas with ease and in a timely fashion.

We would stay in this location again. We really enjoyed our time in beautiful Maui!

Kauhale Makai Resort

  • 4 of 5

Great unit, fantastic view from the lanai. Unit still needs some more updating tho, showers need some updating and some sort of fans, for ventilation. Owner was excellent to deal with. Very helpful. Evenings down on the beach to watch sunset was incredible.

Great view from this condo

  • 5 of 5

When my husband and I visit Maui we always look for a beach front condo. This condo is practically on the beach. It was so enjoyable to sit out on the lanai or walk to the beach for each sunrise and sunset. We had a problem with sink backup and gaberator a few days in to our holiday so I called Dan the owner and he called a plumber right away. Fixed within a few days. This is a two bedroom condo so would be great for two couples. Each bedroom has its own bathroom but the toilets are not very private (not behind a closed door) but behind a short wall. Lots of amenities - beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkelling gear. Kitchen is very well stocked - blender, crock pot, lots of dishes, etc. Highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you Shelly for your stay and your suggestions...always appreciated! we hear you on the bathroom doors and they are on order at this time. Since the bathrooms are in the private bedrooms we thought the new system would work. but we now know people would like even a little more privacy. we are "on it" and it will be rectified. thanks again!!

We stayed at Dan's condo for 5 nights. We can say that it easily exceeded our expectations. Better than what pictures show.

Bedrooms : Both bedrooms are nice size and have nice ocean front views as does living room. Morning tea on master bedroom lanai was perfect to kick start our days followed by beach walk.

Bathrooms : Nothing great about bathrooms but have everything that you need to have shower after long beach days.

Living room : Decent size and plenty of furniture for a family of 4-6 people.

Kitchen : Excellent. It was well stocked.

Other : I liked the idea of extra air mattress Dan had arranged. It came very handy. Also, lots of snorkeling equipment, beach towels, chairs were nice to have. Kids were very happy with beach at few hundred feet ( as were we :-).

Overall, we had comfortable and memorable stay at his condo and would gladly come back on our next trip.

Amazing views - but lack of responsiveness really put a damper on it

  • 3 of 5

I was hoping to say that we loved our stay here in Dan's condo. I could have been that way but lack of responsiveness when there were some things that needed fixed in the condo put a damper on it. We were there for 6 nights and our room the main bedroom never did get fixed. Having to clean up after the repair guy did fix the 2nd bathroom was inexcusable. It took 2 days for the repair guy to get there in the first place and then he ignored what needed to be done in the other bedroom. We were told that they just had a terrible tenant, well I guess we paid the price for that. This was all after I informed Dan immediately of the issues. The plus to the condo was the amazing views. We enjoyed our time on Maui, its too bad my first experience with using VRBO/Homeaway couldn't have gone better. Dan did credit us back the cleaning fee but not until I had to follow up again with him as he had forgot.

Owner's Response: To our guests. This guest had every right to the review she wrote. I am ashamed to say I dropped the ball during her stay. I take great pride that our guest can write great reviews after a wonderful stay. Its not an excuse but I was severely ill and was not paying enough attention. Please know that I make every attempt to respond quickly to guests requests. again my apologies to Connie and her family. Dan

Nice condo with great facilities

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. The ocean views were beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking. The condo is really well supplied with everything you would find in your own home and more. Ample towels, kitchen appliances, water gear. Netflix included. Laundry on same level. Reserved car spot nearby. Pool is good enough. Only negatives: some upkeep needed: towel rails and toilet roll holders falling off walls. Not a fan of slate floors that are hard to clean. No broom supplied and vacuum ineffective. We bought a broom and left it there. Relatively small things though in the scheme of how great this condo is. Highly recommended.

North Kihei is a fantastically convenient central location for seeing all of Maui. If you really want to experience the whole island with the least amount of driving this is the place for you. But at the same time north Kihei is away from all the high traffic high congestion areas.
