My stay in Kihei

bethsoutherncolorado (Grand Junction, Colorado) on May 28, 2022

The things we liked about the condo was that they had good TV Channels and they also had 55 inch TV in the living room. Another thing we liked was that there were tv’s in both bedrooms and the living room. We also liked that it was close to the beaches and restaurants. We enjoyed the beach and sunset views from our lanai. We gave this condo 5 stars and would stay here again!

Had to cancel entire hawaii trip because of C607 double booking and 7-10 day refund time.

ExecutiveSpeaker on May 10, 2022

booked and paid for this rental, then at the last minute, 48 hours before my flight to hawaii, it was cancelled due to being double booked. Now my money is tied up in refunds, and I have to cancel my entire trip to hawaii. This is the 5th place to double book or misrepresent availability in kihei in the last week.

Nice unit, very noisy property

carljneef on Apr 17, 2022

This property is in a nice, central location if you want to spend time on south Maui without all the expense of Kaanapali, but be warned that this place is LOUD all the time. The walkways outside of the units are right along the bedroom windows so any talking is amplified and this is not helped at all by the sounds of children constantly screeching “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!” We are subject to slamming doors of the adjacent units and rental car alarms in the parking lot at almost all hours. There are two pools which are between buildings A and B, and C and D. The A/B pool seems to be more adult-oriented and the C/D pool has kids in it which cannot seem to enjoy the water without screaming. I’m fine with the sounds of the native birds and roosters crowing, which are plentiful in the morning. If you have a family and have little self awareness and control on your noise this property is good for you. If you are expecting quiet (and there are signs all over the property explaining quiet hours) this is not the place for you. Our unit D103 came with beach chairs, a cooler, boogie board and beach umbrella which was really useful. Everything was clean and worked just fine. Make sure you stock up on things like paper towels, coffee filters and toilet paper as there wasn’t much of that here. We probably would not stay here again because of the noise. This isn’t the fault of our Air BnB host but the property itself. If you want a little more quiet look at the Maui Banyan which is right next door.

D-613 Kihei Akahi

onnoaccount on Feb 23, 2022

Prepare to be disappointed. This unit could be a wonderful experience if anyone cared about it. Make no mistake: renting a Vacasa-managed unit does not guarantee a quality experience. They may say they have standards but they don’t enforce them. Theirs is a complaints-based system; there is seemingly no ongoing attention to inventory or conditions within the unit. The good news is that if you are prepared for the neglected state of the unit you will have a wonderful view in a very good complex in a perfect location. Our stay was marred only by the aggravations below and a few more not worth drawing out infinitum. It took a week before a Vacasa team arrived to inspect the unit; to repair the broken sliding door, ( for how many previous rentals? ) replace a missing dining room chair ( for how many previous rentals?), replace some incredibly abused and unclean pots and pans, and add to the inventory. The unit suffers from much neglect and the bed crapped out months ago but was tricked out with a plasticy foam topper. It is back-ache central and hot, giving a month of uncomfortable nights. The furniture looks good in the pictures, doesn’t it? You soon realize that you are sitting in holes and that you need to put cushions on the seats down. While we enjoyed dealing with the Vacasa crew, they were only marginally effective: they say that it is up to the owners to set the standards for the unit and this owner is “very particular” and seemed to refuse to allow them to even replace the one (1) old wizened and bent-up salad server. We had to buy our own frying pan and there was an inconclusive suggestion they would reimburse us but the month went on without any further outreach from Vacasa and we and D-613 were again off their radar. We have rented many units in the K.A. and we suggest you can do better elsewhere in the complex. That said, if you can gird your loins and go for it you’ll likely to have a good time on balance.

Not the best but not the worst

Trail24112269667 on Sep 20, 2021

Our main complaint was the bug/ant problem in the kitchen area. These bugs were crawling all over the items we left sitting on the kitchen island as well as in the kitchen and even went into our suitcases. There were bug traps set out, but either they were old or ineffective because the bug problem seemed out of control. Make sure to not leave any food out because these bugs will get into it.
