Home away from Home
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this clean, comfortable, well equipped and maintained condo. It was a great first impression. The kitchen was well equipped with all the needs for meal preparation. I usually bring coffee filters, they were there also. The appliances are top of the line. The bathrooms were well appointed as well. The living area was spacious, comfortable. The decor was elegant, the lighting impressive with spots on art work. Nothing was overdone or underdone, a very well thought out renovation. The bedroom was equally nice. The bed could have been somewhat more comfortable in comparison to home bed. The laundry room, stacked front load washer, dryer was great. Although I brought laundry detergent, it was provided. I did bring dryer sheets. The AC worked well in both living area and bedroom. We turned it off during the day while we were out. It cooled very rapidly when we returned. The view was perfect. The location of the complex was convenient. We cooked most of our evening meals, often using the outdoor grill, and kitchen facilities. Dinner at Tommy Bahama restaurant at the Wailea Shops was excellent with great service. (somehwat noisy inside, outdoor seating probably better). Lunch meals were all on the go. We especially enjoyed Fork and Salad restaurant on So Kihei Rd. Kamaole Beach III across the street from the complex is a great spot for snorkeling. Often sea turtles can be seen near the rocks right from the beach. We snorkel most of the areas on the Kihei side of the island. We encountered over 50 sea turtles total during our snorkeling over the 9 day period of our stay. Honolua Bay, Black Rock are great snorkeling. Hookipa to watch windsurfing is amazing. We were somewhat surprised that we received the invitation to download the Home Away app for information on arrival at our location. The app provides info. but did not provide access information to the unit. The unit is privately owned but managed through a management company which did not notify us of access information prior to arrival. You can't reply to the confirmation e-mail. I subsequently called the company prior to arrival and was e-mailed the necessary information. Several minor issues during our stay were resolved by this company graciously and immediately. Finally, we loved our stay in this condo. Toaster needs upgrading, but that is minor compared to all the great features of this condo.
