Perfection Stayed: June 2014 Submitted: July 9, 2014
We rented this condo for a week in June. Amazing place to stay and great communication with the owners. Extremely well-equiped from the basics to the snorkeling equipment, and the view from the lanai is wonderful. We really liked the location--a bit out of the busy Kihei area, but an easy walk. And a great place to start sunset walks down to Wailea. If this condo is available just do it.
Cozy rental with a view Stayed: May 2014 Submitted: May 29, 2014
Condo has a view of the ocean from the lanai, large living room, well stocked kitchen and comfortable bedroom. It has a large t.v. in the living room, smaller one in the bedroom. Beaches for snorkeling are close to the unit
A beautiful condo with a beautiful view!! Loved watching whales and dolphins jumping from the lanai. Pools and barbecue are close and beautiful beaches within walking distance. Condo had everything you would need and more. Thank you Craig and Jill for sharing your condo with us and we will be back!
I come to Maui every year and always stay at the Maui Kamaole. My 23 day stay at J115 this year was like living a dream. This condo was spotless and the best stocked condo I have had the pleasure to stay in. Not only is dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, saran wrap, and many other things supplied but they also have beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and other beach toys as well. You really only need to bring your bathing suit. And the view.................the view will take your breath away. It is panoramic. I loved every minute I spent in this condo and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to find 5 star accommodation in Kihei.
Clean, great view, quiet complex, great kitchen, comfortable living and bedroom areas, etc... Would definitely stay again. Only complaint we had was would be nice to have a larger TV in the bedroom and upgraded cable TV service - but those are minor at best. Overall, it was a great place to call home for 11 nights. Highly recommend.
The description of the property was perfect, and the photos give a very good representation of the property. We loved the keyless entry system that Maui Kamaole offers. Not having to worry about a key going to and from the property was a relief. The condo unit was very clean when we arrived and offered many amenities that made our stay most enjoyable. Since we were travelling with a large party (12 of us were staying in various units around the complex), we were able to visit a few of the units our friends and family were staying at. Our unit was one of the nicest due to all of the renovations the owners had done, and was a very short walk across the parking lot to the pool. The view from our lanai was also very nice as it had a nice size of ocean in view. We would absolutely recommend this property to both friends and relatives who are travelling to Maui, and we would definitely stay in this unit again should we return to Kihei. The beach (Kamaole III) is about a 5 minute walk, and there are a few restaurants / pubs within walking distance. We had a great time a Moose McGillycutty's, good food at Fred's (below Moose's), and excellent sushi at 5 Palms (1/2 price off the menu after 9 pm). We did rent a vehicle while there and everything we needed or wanted was within a short drive. We drove out to Buzz's Wharf near Lahaina (about 30 mins drive) and did a snorkle tour to Molokini through Trilogy Excursions. They were fantastic! Though we didn't golf, there were several golf courses near by Maui Kamaole. The owner's welcome gift basket was very nice, and the welcome binder is full of information that helped make our stay stress free.
We've stayed at Maui Kamaole before and liked it. This was the first time we stayed in this unit. It is perfect for a couple. Updated and comfortable; close to the pool and barbeque. It was very easy to deal with the owners. I would highly recommend it.
Condo was very convenient to beach and restaurants. It was also very well appointed with a lot of extras such as coolers and beach chairs. Great view of ocean. I would stay here again!
We were looking for a place to stay with our two kids (ages 9 and 12) that would give us more room than a hotel and a nicer experience. This condo surpased our expectations - it is very well maintained and is stocked with about everything that you could possibly need! Boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs,umbrella, cooler for the nearby beaches. All the cooking utensils and supplies you could possibly need. The views from the lanai were amazing- we enjoyed having dinner or drinks there almost every evening. Could see whales spouting/breaching out in the water! Barbecues throughout the complex were great to use. The complex has very nice and wel maintained pools for the kids as well. We think that it is the nicest looking complex in the Kihei area that we saw. The owners Craig and Jill were very responsive, welcoming and easy to deal with. We would stay there again next time and would highly recommend the place!
The condo was great! It was large, well furnished and came stocked with everything you could need. The owners were great at communicating with us and we really enjoyed our stay. We would definitely rent this unit again as it was perfect for us and we loved Maui.
The owners have certainly put a lot of pride and effort into upgrading this condo and what you see in their promotional images is what you get. It's loaded with every kitchen item you'll ever need plus beach chairs, sunshades, snorkel gear, tennis rackets and everything is in good condition. They are also service oriented. We received quick responses to our questions, and a missing saucepan was iimmediately replaced. We walked to beaches, boating, shops and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 weeks there and have already recommended this unit to friends. This was our 26th trip to Maui and yes we will definitely stay there again.
We had a wonderful stay in this condo and would definitely stay there again. The condo is very comfortable, quiet, and extremely well outfitted. Jill and Craig we absolutely wonderful to work with, and let us into the unit a few hours early due to the fact that my husband got the stomach flu on the flight over and needed some bed rest asap. Fortunately, he was back to normal by the next day and we were able to enjoy the rest of our stay. Oh, and the view is spectacular!
The contracting process was efficient and friendly, the unit was lovely and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and beautifully updated! Thanks for the Hawaiian hospitality!
We loved this unit and would diffinitely book it again!!! We have stayed in other units at the Maui Kamaole but this would be our favourite. The unit has a great view plus comes really well stocked. We are trying to convince our daughter, her husband and their young family to book it for their next trip to Maui as it has everything a family would need including high chair, booster seat, plastic plates, beds & bedding and all the beach toys. The unit was very clean and came with a thoughtful welcome basket. The owners were wonderful to work with and they kept us well informed of renovations they were making which are beautiful. We hope to be back to Maui soon and look forward to staying in J115 again. Thanks, Steve & Denise
My spouse and I arrived to a perfectly clean condo, loaded with a fun (and very convenient, too!) gift basket, a spacious kitchen with all the necessaries, and an overall very comfortable condo. Walk to Kamaole 3 (awesome beach) is 5 minutes at a relaxed pace. Lovely being a 5 minute drive from Kihei for excellent food, fun shopping, and another handful of beaches. Head south 10-20 minutes to Wailea and get the ritzy beaches and super upscale stuff. Lots of 4 and 5 star restaurants very close to this property. We were the first guests after the newly renovated tile floors - they're very nice. Quiet area, loved the new lanai area and ate breakfast (and the provided coffee) on it every morning. Grilled out and ate dinner on it many nights. 30 second walk to beautiful pools. Never heard anyone from the pool or any of the neighbors. It was a beautiful view from the lanai, too. A little glimpse of the bay and the mountains across it. Bottom line - more than comfortable stay, owners make sure you have what you need and are comfortable and satisfied.
This place is great! We stayed for our honeymoon. Condo is beautiful, brand new tile throughout that extends to lanai. Kitchen is amazing, has everything, all you need is the food and drinks. Condo has everything you need for the beach, towels, boogie boards, snorkel gear, chairs, coolers and umbrellas. This condo is everything that it says it is. Place is extremely quiet, we didn't even notice anyone above or on either side of us, as if they weren't there. The pool and BBQ's are just across the parking lot! We believe the views are even better than the pictures, they don't do it justice. We loved this place and would love to stay here again on our next trip!
My husband and I and our teenage son stayed at this lovely condo for a week. It didn't take long for us to feel at home! The kitchen is beautifully remodeled with everything needed to create meals, and the beds - including the sofa bed my son slept on - were very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome gift basket from the owners, and appreciated the binder with menus and information about local restaurants, as well as the guidebooks. It was great to have the beach chairs, straw mats, scuba equipment, and coolers already there and ready for use. We also loved the door-code entry so we didn't have to carry keys, as well as the free wi-fi. The tile floors were great, and LOVED the washer/dryer as well as the easy walk to both the pools and the beach. The entire rental process was straightforward and easy, and the owners were a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend this condo!
My husband and I stayed in this lovely condo for 8 nights recently. It was very nicely furnished and extremely well equipped. The kitchen is beautifully remodeled, and has everything you need for preparing meals including high-end cookware and knives. We especially enjoyed the filtered water pitcher in the fridge. The owners welcomed us with a gift basket which included coffee, pancake mix, chocolates, and snacks -- a very nice touch! There were hair dryers in both bathrooms, as well as shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The linens were very nice and the furniture was comfy. We enjoyed the beach equipment every day, especially the fold-out beach chairs and straw mats. They even had coolers and beach bags for our use. The view from the lanai is great! We really loved the door-code entry so we didn't have to carry keys or key cards with us, and the free wi-fi was a big plus. The owners, Craig and Jill, were very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
My husband and I stayed here with our newborn and 2 year old for a week. It was just as described on the site. The kitchen is completely set up with all the utensils you can imagine, they had movies and beach equipment for the kiddo, and a washer and dryer in unit that made our stay comfy. It was a perfect place if you wanted to do your own cooking. It is across the street from the best beaches. You can walk across the street to the park or view the sunset from your lanai. The condo grounds and pool are spectacular. I highly recommend this particular unit to anyone! The bed was cozy, location great, and amenities within the unit and grounds made it. Thanks for making our stay wonderful!
The Condo was more than comfortable, in a very quiet area,clean,super equipped with all things you need-we can recommend it for all following users!!!! There is everything available for families with kids-we don't have some,but have seen the Equipment -super
Aloha! We had a great time staying in this property for our holiday. We were there for 3 weeks and the place felt like home to us. It has all the amenities that you would want/need for either a short or long stay- nice kitchen, washer dryer, 2 bathrooms with a shower in each, Wifi,free long distance calling, and enough space to feel like you aren't living on top of one another. The BBQ area is nice and close (20 second walk), and the upper pool is a 30 second walk. The lower pool is only a 3 minute walk. The beach is walkable (Kam 3 Beach is closest), but if you have little ones, driving down is a better (and easier) call. The owners have lots of extras in the unit- coolers, beach bags, lots of beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys, 2 boogie boards, 3 snorkel sets, pool toys, local guide books, etc, so we really didn't have to spend any time (or money) getting these kind of things and were able to use them right away. The owners were also very professional in answering any questions we had via email and phone (promptly!) and the transaction was processed smoothly and without a hitch. The pictures they have are 100% accurate and reflect the quality of the unit. If anything, the view from the Lanai is better in person than in the pics- we could watch whales every morning while having breakfast!. All in all, a great place to stay. We would highly recommend it and will plan to stay again in the future. Mahalo!
This was a fantastic place to stay. Had everything a family would need and more. Close to pool, everything in walking distance. Beach for sunset across the street is fantastic. The welcome basked was over the top and we loved it. It has been renovated and they did a fantastic job. We did not want for anything as the owners supplied it all. Every detail was taken care off. We would go back again and again.
My husband and I have just returned from staying in this condo. What a GEM!! A brand new kitchen and new porcelain tile throughout. Very spacious with absolutely everything you need. A beautiful view of the ocean from the lanai, and from inside the unit as well. Two full bathrooms (1 ensuite) and a large bedroom with a very comfy king-sized bed. The owners are very professional to deal with. We have stayed in 4 different condo's in Maui and would definitely return to this one without a doubt.
We loved our time at this wonderful Kihei condo in Maui. The size was right for our family of four, spacious enough, yet cozy like home! After 17 days here, it felt like home! Amazing views, saw several whales splashing in water just out front. Complex was quiet and peaceful, yet our kids could be kids and have fun. Great lanai for meals outside, easy kitchen, well-stocked, nice to have laundry facilities. Fans and air conditioners kept our temperature perfect (white noise ensured we slept great each night... as did the comfortable king bed with soft linen!! The pool was one of the most beautiful we had seen in the neighboring condo complexes, with a pretty hot tub. Lots of foilage and colorful flowers around the pool to remind you you're in the tropics! Easily walked morning or night across park to beach, along to Kihei restaurants, or down new Kihei beach path to Mona Kai for breakfast or yoga. Overall great location, great condo, wonderful owners who ensured we had all we needed to enjoy our stay! Easy to contact for any assistance needed and very responsive. Thanks Jill and Craig, we cannot wait to come back to J115!
The minute we walked into this unit it felt like home! We have stayed at the Maui Kamaole 5 times now and found this unit to be the first one we would book a return visit to. The photos posted are exactly what the unit looks like, and this unit is outfitted with all you will need to enjoy your stay. This location is a 'walker's paradise', whether it's just around the beautiful grounds or for hours along the beaches north to Kihei or south to Wailea...just slap on your suncreen, grab sunglasses and a few dollars for your 'turn-around treat' and walk to your heart's content! The owners are very professional with bookings, helpful with pre-trip info, and welcome you at their unit with gifts, maps & Maui guidebooks. My only hesitation in recommending this unit is it may not be available to me when I want to book our next trip!!
The super kid-friendly set up was amazing. The view was better than we imagined. The attention to detail was a luxury. We started to play the game of "I wonder if there is a ...?" We never stumped them. The condo was fully stocked with everything we needed: high chair, playpen, beach chairs, beach tent, beach umbrella, kids books, toys... Everything is child proofed, our 18 month old wandered freely and safely. The decor was great, as was the selection of movies. (which we enjoyed after we finally tracked down the DVD slot on the side of the cool TV). Our 4 year old son, Carter, loved the Spiderman ball so much he tried to fit it in our suitcase to no avail. Wilson, our 18 month old, spent the entire 8 days running back and forth from the sliding door to the master bedroom. We loved the pool which is a short walk from the condo and includes a small waterfall. The gravel on the floor of the Jacuzzi is an elegant touch. Worth every penny and we are counting the days until we can stay again. We came for a family wedding along with 20 other family members who stayed at other condos - they all agreed that ours was the best. We have visited Maui many times, and stayed at various places on the island - this is by far the best place we have stayed. If you have the opportunity, book it immediately!
We had a wonderful stay in this condo. It is private, clean, spacious, and very well equipped. Craig and Jill have thought of everything you will need- especially if you have little ones. Everything you need for the beach is there. Our favorite thing to do was walk to the grassy lawn at Kamole III and watch the sunset. It's also nice that the pool is very close to the condo. There is a great porch with a beautiful view of the ocean. I would recommend this condo to anyone.
We stayed in J115 July 2 - July 18, 2010. The unit is very well equiped with everything you would need. We were impressed with the quality of the items in the unit from the pots to the bed linens. The pull out sofa bed was very comfortable for our son during our stay. You have a wonderful ocean view from the kitchen while cooking. The only thing we would change would be to take out the carpeting in the unit. We would not hesistate to stay here again and look forward to next year! The complex is very quiet and there are two pools for relaxing. There are also tennis courts on the property.
We had a great stay in this unit. We spent 10 nights and could have stayed longer. We were welcomed with a wonderful basket of Hawaiian goodies; macadamia nuts, tea, pancake mix, etc. which was very nice after a day of traveling. The unit had everything we wanted and then some. It is well equipped with beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, cooler, and snorkel gear. There were also some items for children but since we were two adults we didn't use any of it. In addition, there were plenty of bath towels, fresh sheets, bathroom products (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel...which is not the norm for vacation rentals so that was a pleasant surprise), laundry detergent, dish soap, and dish detergent. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you can imagine: pots, pans, plates, bowls, wine glasses, kitchen gadgets, cooking utensils, toaster, coffee maker, blender, and acrylic/plastic place settings for using on the lanai. The lanai has an amazing view of the sunset and is a peaceful place to enjoy morning coffee as well. The unit is also located very close (but not so close you hear the noise) to one of the pools. The grounds at the complex are gorgeous, well manicured, and much more lush than some of the other complex's in Kihei. I honestly cannot think of one negative thing to say about the unit. We had a wonderful stay and I would recommend this unit to my friends without hesitation. Hopefully we will get the chance to return soon!
