We parked right outside the condo and didn't need our car for days. The beach, pool, hot tub, breakfast places and dinner restaurants are all walking distance. We loved the modern fully outfitted kitchen because many times we cooked in. Most comfortable king sized bed too. The hosts welcome you with a little treat we enjoyed the first day. This location is the perfect home base for day trips to the rest of Maui, you can get anywhere on the island very easily.
We are a family of three with our little girl having just turned one.
This was our first trip to Hawaii and we couldn't be happier that we had chosen this property for our stay.
The condo is extremely well equipped - it had everything we could imagine - from beach towels&chairs and various beach gear to all kinds of kitchen utensils. The owner kindly provided us with a baby bed after we made a last minute request.
The place also felt very spacious for the three of us and our girl, who just started walking, was thrilled to explore around. I'm not sure if the coach in the living unfolds into a double bed so that 4 persons are accommodated, but for 3 the place is great.
We also felt to be in the best situated flat in the whole building complex - on the upper floor, just next to the beach across the road. We could enjoy the sunset from our balcony. Be aware if you have mobility issues, there is no elevator, there are a few steps to climb - from the ground to the first floor. We did it daily with the baby stroller, it wasn't a problem for us.
Location-wise, the place is just in front of a very nice beach, and within a few minutes walk there are other nice beaches with park areas. Also in the area there were many places to eat and several shops. It's a lively spot without feeling too busy or crowded. We could indeed hear the traffic from the road separating most of Kihei from the beach, but it didn't bother us throughout the 8 days we stayed there.
Overall, we feel we got lucky to spend our Maui vacation in this place, we loved the proximity of the beach and eateries/shops. We would love to come back and will definitely recommend to friends going to Maui.
