I do not usually write reviews but I want to write a short one for this. This is my 4th trip to Hawaiian islands and second to Maui and this condo is the best condo i have stayed in islands so far. Chatten is an amazing host and took care of things pro actively and made sure we are comfortable in the condo. This is very close to the beach and has better ocean views than pictures show. I will definitely check with Chatten to see if this is available when i am in maui next time. Beautiful condo and amazing host. 5 *****. Thanks SC
Great location and views from the lanai, the place was also well stocked with everything you could need to have a great vacation. Owners were a pleasure to deal with and everything was very smooth from beginning to end. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
Response from the owner We love sharing our home -- after all, ALL we do for it is stock it with art, appliances and extras WE like -- that makes it fun! We look forward to hosting you again. Mahalo.
“Perfect Spot, Easy Transaction”
We are two couples who travel together at least once a year. The four of us used this as our home base for our 6 days on Maui. The location in Kihei was perfect for our planned daily excursions. This perfectly outfitted condo offered all the comforts of home. The unit is located on the top floor of the complex and has the closest point of view to the awesome beach just steps away. The owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with. All transactions were seemless and worry free. The descriptions of the condo were absolutely spot on, beautiful art work throughout and the unit was spotless upon our arrival on 5/18/2014. There are plenty of restaurants close by, many within walking distance. The owner was nice enough to give multiple suggestions on what to do while here and we took advantage of the local expertise. Chatten suggested we chose Ali'i Nui for our excursion to snorkel the Molokini Crater. We booked this trip and were very glad we did. We saw many boats leaving the docks were the customers were crammed on there elbow to elbow. The Ali'i Nui was the champagne of catamarans and they served excellent food and drink aboard and the crew was knowledgeable and very entertaining. Do yourself a favor and ask the owner for suggestions on what to do, you will be glad you did. Just some helpful suggestions here for you. When you arrive, try to park in the bottom lot and use the elevator to take up your belongings. Getting to the unit from the upper lot is not condusive to make for an easy arrival. When you enter the condo, it may be extremely warm inside due to the large sliders facing the afternoon sun. No problem, start the A/C units and go have lunch or dinner before you unpack. The A/C units do a good job of providing for your comfort. As other reviews have stated, everything in this awesome unit looks to be brand new. The owner provides an extensive welcome packet via email, read it thoroughly, you will be glad you did. It covers EVERYTHING. My last suggestion would be to stop searching and just book this place. The location is perfect, the beach across the street is very nice and the views from the two balconies during sunset are amazing.
Response from the owner We loved hosting you and working with you -- please come back!! It's a long way indeed, but how many palm trees surround YOUR home back there?? Cheers!
“Everything we expected!”
This was our second time staying here, everything was perfect. The condo has everything you need, location is great, close to the beach, shops, etc. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the lanai each evening, and listening to the waves crashing at night. Our only disappointment is that it's already booked up for next year.
Response from the owner ... and NOW we hear you have old high school pals at the other end of the building!!! Too funny. Come back anytime -- glad you loved it!
“Perfect Condo + Perfect Location”
My husband and I have been renting condos in Kihei for the last 13 years, and this is the best property everk, we stayed 3 weeks. The location is across the street from the beach, you can see the ocean, the surfers, and the beach umbrellas from all the windows in the condo. There is an elevator next to this 4th floor unit, and there is no noise from the elevator. The furnishings, art, and appliances are excellent. There are touches not always found in condo rentals such as: Plenty of beach towels, high quality beach chairs, coolers, high end linens, complete array of kitchen equipment including high end wine glasses and pots/pans. The keyless entry is a much appreciated touch. I cannot think of anything to improve this condo rental. While it will accomodate two couples easily, we found it to be the perfect size for two people as well. We will return every year. The owners have gone the extra mile to make this a fabulous accomodeation.
Response from the owner We love hearing that we go the extra mile -- thanks for your faith in us time after time. We even have a lovely new local Maui artist on display -- the whales are spouting good cheer back to you. Aloha!
“two weeks in paradise”
We recently stayed at the Maui alii Kai resort, unit a401. The unit is beautifully done, close to the elevator, with a good view of the beach. Located in Kihei, it is close to several good places to eat and a great beach. We snorkeled off the beach and saw sea turtles, eels, lobsters, octopus and every colorful fish you could imagine. There was also a great beach to surf at about a quarter mile up the road. The owner, Chatten, gave us several recommendations of places to see and eat at, all of which we loved. She was very helpful and easy to communicate with. We had 6 people there, including children, and never felt cramped. We will definitely be staying in this unit again when we return to Maui.
Response from the owner So glad you had fun. That's what we like to hear -- and that the sea creatures showed up for you -- we try, but can't guarantee. LOL -- see you next time.
“Most amazing vacation, great way to turn 60!!!”
The condo was pristine! A401! Has the best view in the whole complex. Beautifully decorated with an ocean feel. A kitchen any chef would love. And just a few steps from the beach. Close to all amenities! Easy highway access. Would highly recommend.
Response from the owner Happy birthday again (at sixty, you can take it all year, DR!) and come back again. We will keep the light on for you.
“Paradise Made Easy”
My family of 4 (2 couples) stayed in paradise over Christmas. Chatten and I became BFF (best friends forever) over the previous months as she provided incredible service even before we got to her condo in answering all of my questions, recommending activities and vendors in the area and being a general "go to" person about Maui. Once we got into the condo, it was even better than described. The condo was immaculate, everything worked, and there were plenty of supplies (e.g. toilet paper, detergent, ice, etc.). She labeled many items (the switches, pool key, garbage disposal, etc.) so you knew what they were. There were beach towels, chairs, coolers, and even a bucket and shovel to build sand castles. With all of her carefully planning, directions and labels, we were ready to get started on our vacation immediately. The condo was perfect for 2 couples since there were 2 separate bedrooms and 2 complete bathrooms. The master bedroom had its own balcony and there was a lanai off the living room. There was also a loft with another double bed. There were fans everywhere and excellent cross ventilation so we were never too hot. Each room had its own air conditioner so you could regulate them separately. The kitchen was beautiful and fully equipped. Chatten even bought a roasting pan so that I could cook Christmas dinner there and there was plenty of room for everyone. The condo was so centrally located that going to the beach, the pool, buying the best cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and eating at fabulous restaurants were all within walking distance. But every night you still had the sound of the rolling waves on the beach to put you to sleep. We have rented condos all over the world and Chatten and David's place was one of the best because it was the home you would have if it was yours: beautiful, comfortable, convenient and spacious. Chatten made living in paradise easy.
Response from the owner WOW, Ann, it was just as much fun for me having you a my guest -- knowing you loved every minute of your stay. Thanks for the tip about the Whale book -- I will add it to the book case. Next time, you will see it there! Malama pono (all the best) and come again!
This is a very comfortable apartment, extremely well-equipped and set up. We were a party of 4 adults who stayed 6 nights - all of us loved the location, lots of nice restaurants around, shops and a really good organic store.We didn't swim off the beach closest to the property because there were great beaches a very short drive away. Just one thing - the cooling unit in the second bedroom is not very effective - this didn't bother us since we visited in October and the weather wasn't too warm but perhaps it may be different in summer. Chatten, our host was extremely responsive and accommodating during the booking and payment process, thank you!
Response from the owner You travel an amazing amount and seem to know your stuff -- I'm glad we took good care of you. I love when I learn from guests and believe me, that unit in the second bedroom is on my radar. I want to have it work better for your next visit, and everyone else's. Safe travels always and come back to see us again. Mahalo!
“A delightful vacation home”
My wife and I did a lot of on-line research for a vacation home in Kihei, Maui. This was a second trip to the island for us, 1st in 2004, and with that experience we knew what to look for in accommodation location and features for our two-week stay. Even so, you work with photos, descriptions and, of course, guest reviews. Ali'i Kai a401 appeared to have what we wanted, near beach location, quality appointments and especially a clear ocean view to enjoy the famous Maui sunrise and sunset events. A401 has great ocean views with two lanais and is located at the very forward on the 4th, top, floor of the condo building, nearest the ocean. Ten minutes walk to the shore and one of the best beaches in South Kihei. I communicated numerous times with the owner, a delightful and responsive lady, making the booking and clarifying details of the condo. Our research was well-rewarded and ali'i Kai a401 was everything we hoped for. It is much more home-like than a rental property; clean, spacious, very well equipped with quality furnishings and appliances and the decoration scheme is apropos for the purpose and location. The entire condo complex, including a beautiful pool and hot tub, is clean and well maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation time and the condo was a large part of that pleasure. We are not young, but we were busy every day, some things we did on our previous trip and some new things. We did the Road to Hana, the Haleakala Summit for a sunset, The Old Lahaina Luau, La Perouse Bay and we hiked the Waihee Ridge Trail. We had a great time and hope there be another opportunity to visit Maui. We would without question plan to return to ali'i Kai-A401.
Response from the owner You are the BEST! Come back anytime -- it was such a pleasure working with you both and I appreciate all you did in just two weeks. Malama pono and much aloha. Until next time.
