    Great Kihei stay

    We stayed here on a recent visit and were quite happy with it. Although Kihei is not our favourite part of the island to stay in this was a nice location and we would certainly stay again. We rented through Air BnB and had a two King bedroom with 2 bath condo right by the pool on the ground floor. At first I was a little concerned about being SO close to the pool but it turns out that the condo was pretty well sound proofed and also this is a very quiet property overall so we never really heard much of anything from the pool. Also we were grateful that the owners of our unit had planted bushes and shrubs in front of their lanai which made it feel more private even though it was on the ground floor and right by the pool. We enjoyed our breakfasts out there every morning and usually a drink at night and never felt awkward. Our unit was basically clean although not as clean as I would ultimately like and did need some upgrading. However, the appliances were new, beds were comfortable, and the owners were very responsive. One downside of this property is that laundry is paid and shared and while we were there they were actually doing construction so there was no laundry at all in our building. The construction also didn’t look nice at all to walk in to but hopefully whatever they are doing will make the property even better. We enjoyed the big expanse of lawn and the steps away from the beach. It is not a swimming beach but it’s still nice for a walk or run or some yoga or just sitting and enjoying watching the sunset or the waves roll in. One morning we found a huge snail hanging out on the lawn and every morning we were woken up to beautiful bird song and usually visits from several birds while we ate breakfast. The pool is nice although we never really used it. We hopped in once for a quick dip but there are so many beaches and so much to do that we didn’t have any real need for a pool. I do like the whale murals in the pool though. I noticed a few young families over the week and think it would be a great location and option for young families. It was also great for us as couples since we each had our own space in our condo. Despite this being in Kihie and off a pretty busy street we actually did not hear much noise at all which was very nice as we always look for quiet spots for nights.

    Nice enough but beware

    We stayed in Plumeria on 4th floor and condo 424 was in pretty good shape. Our lanai was on the end with a full view of pool and ocean. We rented through VRBO. Our owner was very responsive and furnishings were nice enough. I began to wonder about security in the complex since on 2 occasions within 2 days I observed 2 different couples engage in sexual acts in the pool and once in the hot tub. I was disgusted by their behavior and felt offended since for the big pool event, in broad daylight, I was at the pool. The hot tub incident was another couple(the four of them were friends),and that was in view at nighttime. Later on I mentioned it to the front desk and they were polite and said they would “send it on”. Later in the week I saw some more very explicit sexual activity by a 3rd couple. But for my 10 day stay I never noticed a security guard. Perhaps if there was a presence this ludicrous behavior would be discouraged. Another observation is that there is no indicated accessible bathroom from the pool. Not ideal especially for families with young children.

    Lovely

    We rented a unit (607) here for two weeks at the end of June into early July. The condo showed better in person than the pictures on HomeAway which was a very rare pleasure for us. The unit was spotless when we arrived and Maui Condo even went so far as to allow us early (3 hours) access on check-in and late checkout (4 hours - for a small fee) on our departure day. The grills in the common area were kept extremely clean as was the pool area and grounds. We didn't really hang around much during the day as we were taking in all the sights we could on the island so I couldn't really comment on how invasive construction noise was during working hours. There are renovations going on, but for us that wasn't an issue at all. We would definitely plan on renting here again on a future visit.
