Great location, condo could use some TLC
Location was amazing! Favorite location ever in Hawaii! You can literally walk to anything from surfing to groceries to souvenirs to happy hour music and great food! Great shave ice stand right below the pool! The place its self was very accommodating, especially for our 23 month old. They provided pack n play, high chair and a great stroller for numerous walks around Kihei! Not to mention tons of beach toys! The building is a bit aged, but very well taken care of by the on site property manager Brian. We cannot say enough great things about Brian, he works very hard to keep the condo in top shape and is eager to satisfy all owners and guests! The unit we stayed in was the best location in the entire condo. Corner unit, one floor above the pool, which my 5 year old utilized almost daily! Great clean pool, very well maintained. The unit had some great upgrades, loved the floors and the adoreble remodeled kitchen. As there are an abundance of great things to say about our stay there were a few flaws. The climate of the unit was very uncomfortable. It was an average 90 degrees outside every day and the window air conditioner had a hard time cooling the main living area of the unit, making it dreadfully hot in the 2 back bedrooms! So, sleeping conditions were not the greatest. I literally put my kids to bed with frozen water bottles in a sock so they could sleep more comfatbly. My husband slept on the floor every night in the living room, as the couch/convertible bed was much too uncomfortable. The master bathroom sink clogged a lot and the shower always had cold water. Maintenance did come to fix it once, but I only fixed it for about a day. Luckily, it was so hot that the cool shower felt ok, except for our 23 month old and 5 year old, and they would just use the other shower that oddly always had hot water. The garbage disposal was always getting stopped up, and we rarely used it. The duct tape holding the face of the microwave came undone a few times, we added some new tape to keep it together! I guess you could say the unit could use a bit of TLC, but still very happy with our choice, only because the location was so great! We utilized Maui Wave Riders for surfing lessons and board rentals, great company! Great people all around Kihei, really great location, highly recommend it if your willing to "rough it" a little bit!!
