Nice view, nice grounds
We stayed here for about 2 weeks, we had a wonderful time. It is a nice central location, quiet area and you can drive to the tourist high traffic areas if you want to. We love the harbor as well, and the aquarium and that it is walking distance away.... and of course Beach Bums. All that being said, this unit we stayed in had issues with the front door, if you are in a hurry to get inside you will be disappointed as even on our best attempt it took several tries to get the door to open. Maintenance came out and did not improve the functionality of the door. Also the carpet in the living room was old and stained and faded, the place was not cleaned prior to our arrival, dust everywhere, dirty windows, dirty coffee table and a bad smell from the pipes could be smelled in the bathroom. As it turns out the toilet was leaking and they fixed it, but the smell returned maybe the pipes are getting old or the recent storms caused the vapors to backup the pipes. We did not let any of this ruin our trip, we had a great time and who spends their vacation on Maui cooped up in the room anyway? I could have slept in the parking lot and still had an awesome visit. I did research the place before hand and noticed in the pictures it had carpeting and figured it may be worn. But the pictures also show a sandy beach which was next door and really not a good area for snorkeling or any kind of off shore swimming, or for kids as it was very rocky in the shallow water,(maybe a good spot to launch a raft or canoe but no direct beach access from this property). there was also views in the online pictures that were not from this unit... FYI. The BBQ area was very well maintained, as was the pool area in general. I would give the property manager 5 stars in the care of the grounds. The view is also 5 stars, and one of the lanai was awesome, nice and roomy and a nice table to sit and watch the whales from. I really wanted to score the room higher, but the fact they rented out the place and did not care to prep it properly made us feel like we were not that valuable to whomever owns or runs the place. Too bad, if the place was remodeled or updated it would be a great place to stay or adjust the price to reflect the condition of the unit.
