“Amazing Stay!” Our stay at Steve and Marie's condo was amazing! They have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. All of the extra things (snorkels, chairs, towels, beach toys, books, coolers, and so much more) you need for your time at the beach is all right there for you. The kitchen is well stocked for your morning coffee or for any meals you want to make. The washer and dryer mean you can leave lots of room in your suitcase for all the souvenirs you want to take home. We loved being able to go and grill out by the pool. The staff at Maui Banyan were so kind and helpful and they keep everything looking beautiful. We loved being able to walk across the street to the beach to swim and watch sunsets. At Maui Banyan you are close to several great restaurants and shops. We used Maui Sights and Treasures and they did not let us down and we loved all the extra insight Maui Revealed gave us. If you want a relaxing, worry free place to stay, this is the place for you! Be sure to read the guest book at the condo and sign the surfboard. Mahalo!

MAUI ELDORADO RESORT- Apt I-101 Kaanapali

Ka'anapali apartment

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Paradise on the Beach” We have enjoyed our stays in Maui for 12 years and found this condo to be a perfect fit for our family of four. We have just renewed our reservation with the owners for our fourth consecutive year. We love all the extra space and that it's a corner unit with lots of windows to view all the beautiful surroundings. Having the large heated pool beside the apartment is very convenient. It is located just a 5 minute walk through the garden to the beach cabana. The condo is stocked with all the amenities of a home. We love the convenience of having a shuttle to take us to and from the private beach cabana when the kids are tired from all the play on the beach. The restaurants and shopping at Whaler's Village are within short walking distance. Kaanapali has a shuttle service which provides transportation throughout the village. Grocery shopping and Golf courses are within a very short drive from the resort. we will continue to return to this comfortable resort - and apartment! Doris

“This Place Has Everything You're Looking for on Maui” We really enjoyed staying at Maui Kai 806. The setting suns and moons as well as the layout of the unit, and the extremely helpful staff (especially Rowena) made our stay wonderful. We would recommend this place to our closest friends and relatives. It is ideally situated with access to all that Maui has to offer. Close to terrific beaches (snorkeling, sunning, etc.), close enough to beautiful sightseeing around Maui, and access to wonderful Lahaina, this place is simply amazing. It was my first trip to Hawaii and definitely a 5 star stay. This place rocks!

Maui Kai 807 Deluxe Oceanfront Studio, NO FEES

Lahaina apartment

“Fabulous 2 person beachfront condo” We really enjoyed the Maui Kai and the condo was fabulous. It was a junior suite. It had a nice, well stocked clean kitchen. The daily maid service was awesome as well. The staff at the Maui Kai were very friendly as well even giving me a shipping box for packing my bouquet and shipping things we left. The pool and hot tub area were really nice and private. Our favorite part was definitely the lanai, nothing beats the ocean front view.

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Best Vacation” My family and I truly enjoyed loved our stay at Aloha Kai Suite and the Wailea Beach Villas. Beautifully decorated, clean, kitchen had everything you needed, and of course the view was amazing. We loved being so close the sandy beach, the two pools, and close to the shops and restaurants at Wailea (especially the ice cream shop which they visited nightly). The staff at WBV was outstanding, very friendly and there if we needed anything from reservations to beach chairs! Susan the owner of Suite J205 was very prompt to answer any questions I had prior to booking our vacation and before our arrival. I would definitely book this unit again for our next trip to Maui!

“Spectacular in every way possible!” My husband and I travelled to Hawaii for the first time and we could not have been more pleased with our Mahana condo. The view is beautiful beyond words - and you don't have to leave the lanai to whale watch! The sound of the ocean all night is heavenly! All the comforts of home including a fabulous kitchen, shower and top notch hotel bed! We cant wait to go back!

Hale Kamaole #309 -Spacious 2+ bdrm Kihei Condo

Kihei apartment

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Hale Kameole #309 - A great find!!” We ust returned from a glorious holiday to Maui (10 days) and the Molokai (4 days). This is our 7th trip to the Islands, and I fall more in love every time! Maui had last been a destination in 1995 and although we found a lot of changes - much has stayed the same. We stayed, for the first time, in #309 (Hale Kamaole) - a 3rd story condo with an ocean view - renting the unit through Vrbo. This was a very clean and well appointed condo and allowed the four of us (2 couples) ample room and comfotable surroundings. The owner (Brenda) was easy to deal with and always helpful and honest. We loved so much about this location - it's proximitiy to Kamaole 3 Beach (right across the road, and a really great beach in it's own), shopping, dining and, of course, the beaches in Wailea (Ulua and Big Beach). The condo was extremely clean and...well, comfortable - the kind of place that you're anxious to return to after a long and tough day of beaching or shopping. Do not think we missed having cocktails on the lanai one day, watching the sun go down to the tunes of other residents performing their "conch" ceremony (not to be missed). We all loved this place, and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Honeymoon Beach Condo/Kihei-Incredible Views! Only Steps to the Sand! #227 WBH

Kihei apartment

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 3

“Wonderful stay in Maui” I just came back from my second trip to Hawaii and the first one to Maui. It was a wonderful experience. For our trip we stayed at one rental in Hana, a resort hotel in Kaanapali and also this condo in Kehei. Among the all, we love the oceanfront condo the most. This is the first time we were that close to the beach which is only steps away and it is quiet and beautiful. From the balcony we watched the beautiful sunset with beer and watch people swimming and walking along the beach occasionally. It is in a quiet area but close enough to everything from restaurant, groceries, to any other services. Also, it is easy to go places such as Lahaina, Waileal or the Haleakala national park. As for the condo itself, it is super good. We love it as it is well kept and with everything you need for the trip. We didn't do any cooking as my wife wanted to have some relaxing days. But you do want to do it, you will find everything you need or even more than what you have at home. You also find things for beach time like beach chairs, beach umbrella boogie board, towels etc. The facility itself has a nice pool with barbecue ,a laundry room and parking area. It is definitely perfect for honeymoon or couples and great for kids as well. The owner has done a great job to keep the condo in great condition and respond to any questions and issues right away. We did have a minor issue with toilet and I called Lucy, the owner and she took care of it and got it fixed when we were sight-seeing. I talked to Lucy a couple of times before the trip and she was nice and always gave me all the info I needed right away and I feel very pleased with her service and also enjoyed greatly the stay at her condo. Thank you Lucy!

Maui Island HIdeaway

Maalaea apartment

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Maui Island Hideaway” You cannot go wrong with the Maui Island Hideaway. Because the "Hideaway" is so close to the water we could hear the sounds of the water literally 24/7. Our day began with a wonderful walk on the beach and back to the lanai to have our morning coffee. Many mornings we saw the whales dancing, along with a group of turtles peaking their heads out of the water. The breeze coming through the condo was wonderful and it made sleeping so comfortable. This condo is well taken care of and nicely decorated. The location of the "Hideaway" is very central to the west and south side of the Island which for us was perfect. We had a wonderful 2 weeks at the Maui Island Hideaway and we will be back.

“Amazing trip” First trip to Maui and hopefully not our last. Perfect family trip getting away for the first time with our 2 year old. The condo met all our needs, and the whole booking and service was great. The complex worked so well for us with good access to the beach and selection of pools that we all loved. Amazing memories of watching our son progress at swimming everyday with a massive smile on his face. This was a holiday that I was worried about, as it is way more than what we normally do budget wise, camping is our normal holiday time. I was worried that we would regret the increase in what we where spending. All I can say is it was totally worth it, and I hope we are able to do it again in the future.

“Wonderful Beach Front Condo!” We enjoyed our week in this beautiful beach front condo which was in a perfect location! The condo is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you need for a fabulous vacation in Maui. Watching the sunsets as we looked out at Lanai and Molokai was the highlight of each day! We have been traveling to Lahaina since 1965, and this is our new favorite place!

“Excellent Choice” You will not be disappointed if you rent this condo! It has close proximity to the beach and pool, a great view and privacy. Maps of Ekahi can be deceptive as some of the buildings appear close but are actually up a steep hill. Your friends will be envious as they drag coolers, chairs & boogie boards up the hill. The unit has been fully remodeled and tastefully decorated with high end finishes. The owners have thought of your every need & the kitchen is fully stocked & even has sharp knives. The large covered lanai with ceiling fan allows you to sit outside even when the sun is hot. The owner is easy to work with and provides a wealth of information. We would not hesitate to rent this unit again and will be recommending it to friends & family.

“Stop... don't even bother to look for other rentals!” I spent hours looking at rental properties. I had never been to Maui before, and had no idea what I was looking for. Guess what... I found it! The resort owners were wonderful to deal with.I had a couple extra travel challenges to deal with, and Barb was so helpful and accommodating. She took away so much of the stress that could easily have come with those challenges. When choosing the resort, we chose this one, because unlike many of the others, it had extra amenities like ping pong, tennis, foos ball, and a gym. I am glad that the resort had these amenities because it was what made us choose this one over others, and as a result we got an amazing home for a week. Our unit was perfect.There were five of us (2 adults, 3 kids aged 10, 14, 16), and there was plenty of space. As soon as we walked in the door after a very long flight,my daughter said,"I feel like I am at home already!" And that was exactly it for the following ten days... comfortable just like home! There was not one time that I said, "I wish the unit had..." because it had everything. Beach chairs, coolers, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, spices, a Brita in the fridge, everything! The grounds and the pool were beautiful and so well maintained. Make sure to take in the Wednesday Mai Tai parties by the pool! As far as location, you cannot get any better. One of the best beaches is right across the street. Great for snorkeling in the morning, and boogie boarding in the afternoon. Snorkelers here are very likely to spot giant sea turtles along the reefs near the shoreline. The weather here is amazing as well. We spoke to people who stayed on the north shore and they said they got a lot of overcast days. We didn't have any in our 10 days. You are also very close to everything here. So, take my advice, and stop looking at other rental units, and just book this one. I guarantee you you will thank me for it... both for the time saved, and for the amazing stay that you will have!

“Exceptional home away from home!” Just as described, the kihei oasis is an excellent vacation rental. The layout of the home, furnitionings and it's convenient surroundings, I would definitely recommend staying here. The jacuzzi was a hit, but the real bonus was the little amenities that you don't really think of until you need it. I opened the kitchen cabinets and found foil, oil, shoyu sauce and lots of helpful seasonings. The bathroom cabinets also had additional body wash, shampoo, lotion and for kids too. Although we brought our own amenities, I'm glad you have them available especially for large families. Also a garage wall dedicated to fun in the sun activities, boardgames and so much more. Mahalo to the Morts ohana for providing such a lovely home away from home, We definitely enjoyed ourselves!

BEST KEPT SECRET ON MAUI-Kihei-Little Peace of Paradise

Kihei apartment

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“In the Top 3!” We have been coming to Maui for over 30 years. In that time, we have stayed in many different condos and Ohanas(private cottages). This unit was definitely in our top 3. The location was perfect! We could easily walk out our door to grocery stores & post office or restaurants. The unit was a little more spacious than most. They have upgraded the kitchen & bathroom, doing an excellent job on the nice big shower. Being located on the ground floor, with a spacious lanai, & near the BBQs, offered us the opportunity to host a couple of gatherings for 10-12 people. The unit is pretty well stocked with almost anything you"ll need. We loved the king size bed and and the matching furnishings. Having a safe for our valuables was an added & well appreciated bonus.The grounds are well kept, with an excellent swimming pool and outdoor kitchen area. The beach is only a block away. The owners are very responsive to any problem that we had. There were only 2 negatives that we found but which we managed to work around. The w/d are not in the unit. Luckily, they are located right outside the door and there was a change machine at the pool, which helped immensely. The laundry so close, made it less of an inconvenience than we thought it would be & we were there for 6 wks, so we did do laundry. The most negative thing is that this complex bills itself as a nonsmoking complex but has no bylaws to enforce No Smoking on residents who choose to smoke on their lanais. All guests seem to follow the rules and restricted their smoking to the designated Smoking Areas. Unfortunately, the owner/neighbor next to us, even after implored by both the owners and ourselves to please not smoke because it drifted directly into our unit, persisted in doing so and was not reasonable when approached. Luckily, this will not deter us from returning to this unit. We had a mostly wonderful stay and sincerely look forward to more stays in the near future and for years to come.

LUXURY BEACH HOME POOL EXCELLENT LOCATION

Kihei house

“Wonderful stay in the perfect home. Great golf and beach locatio” My friends and I stayed in this high-end well-appointed home while we were on Maui. Our main purpose was to fit in as many games of golf as possible as our wives shopped and relaxed by the pools and enjoyed the beaches. This plan worked out perfectly since we were located right on golf course and a short walk from the beach. Everyone was more than happy with our accommodations and being able to rent a spacious home in the center of a luxury resort was ideal. This home was an exceptional value when you consider that most of the hotel rooms in the Wailea/Kihei area go for the same price for just one room. Everyone in our group felt as though this was our own home in Maui and we expect we will return again as soon as we can. We highly recommend this place and would like to thank the owners for extending us their every kindness. Sincerely, Don M
