A wonderful vacation spot


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit is well appointed, comfortable and quiet. Perfect view of ocean sunset. Convenient proximity to beach and restaurants. We had two very minor requests that were addressed promptly.

The ocean view was amazing


The ocean view was amazing and the access to the beach. What would have been helpful is to have knowledge of what was available in the home such as toaster, utensils and beach equipment. I rented because I didn’t know til too late. The front room was way too hot to sleep on so we slept on the pullout. The dishes were dirty because the dishwasher didn’t work well. I think not having air is rough in the summer.

Pictures don’t do this place justice.


Pictures don’t do this place justice. The ocean view from the balcony is amazing and you’re steps away from a secluded beach. All of the beach gear in the unit (chairs, umbrella, boogie board) made it easy for us to check in and hit the beach as quickly as possible. We’d definitely stay here again!

Awesome place right in front of Ocean


Awesome place right in front of Ocean. We had really great time for 7 days. It was our honeymoon trip to Maui. Deb was quick to response and everything was clean. Proper instructions were provided before check in and during our stay. Thank you Deb

This is an awesome place to stay! Deb was a great host and provided us an extra pack & play for our little one. Two things that are worth to mention: The apartment was super clean and the sea view from the balcony is breathtaking!

Perfect Place


We stayed at Deb's place for 9 days and we couldn't have picked a better location. The place is on a little side street right at the Pacific and within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. We loved staying at Deb's place and would gladly choose it again. I also would like to thank Deb for all her help in making sure the reservation went though.

Beautiful condo with an incredible view!


Beautiful condo with an incredible view. You can watch the surfers in the bay right from the balcony; and the sunset view is amazing. Was also equipped with snorkel gear, boogie boards, and beach chairs, which was a nice surprise. Perfect location in the heart of Kihei, centrally located on the island. Check in/out was fast and simple and Deb was great. Would absolutely return! Our stay was amazing, thank you Deb!

I have never been closer to the ocean and....


You are paying for the location, and it's worth it! I have never been closer to the ocean and several beaches. Sea turtles sleep on the little beach right out front, and you can spend all morning watching surfers and SUP-ers in the Cove. If you are a light sleeper, the parking lot noise might keep you awake, and there is no privacy in the bedroom if someone is sleeping on the couch. But it is perfect for a couple, or if I go by myself I'll sleep on the couch and listen to the waves all night! VERY well stocked with lots of cooking supplies and even spices. Plenty of beach towels, 2 beach chairs, an umbrella, a snorkel set, even a fishing pole to try out! The lanai is heaven for breakfast, dinner, and everything in between. I could live here... Deb, this place was great!

charming condo overlooking the ocean


I had a wonderful stay in #202, which is a charming condo overlooking the ocean next to the Cove surfing area. The condo is decorated in a blue color scheme, with delightful conch and other shells around the place. The balcony provides a panoramic view of the south coast and of human activity. The kitchen is well stocked with tools for serious cooking. The bathroom and bedroom are very pleasant. My only complaint is that the shower water was not hot enough for my needs.

Wonderful Stay!


The Unit We have been staying at this condo for 9 years and have often stayed in Unit 202. This was our first stay since the owner renovated and I must say I believe it is one of the best units in the building! The kitchen has been re-done and they have stocked it with the high quality dishes, pots, pans and utensils. The bed is super comfy and we had overnight guests that said the hide a bed was comfortable too. There are all the beach necessities you would need, new umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards and cooler. The Service Deb was a DREAM to work with. She is very understanding (our 2nd payment was incorrect and had to be re-sent) and ensured we had everything we needed for a fabulous 21 day vacation. She was extremely accommodating for a late check out and when we couldn’t locate the coffee maker our first night, came over the very next day with a new one. (the missing culprit was later found) The Location You will never find a better location! Walking distance to all the best beaches, restaurants and bars but yet VERY quiet at night. There is a communal BBQ which tends to be busy right after sunset but also gives you an opportunity to chat with your neighbors on great places to discover. There is a very comprehensive guest book in the unit where you can access all the information you will need about the unit and surrounding area. Thank you Deb for a wonderful stay and we can’t wait to be back next year!

This has one of the best views on the island that you can enjoy from a decent sized patio. We loved watching the surfers and waves come in.

Perfect Place on Maui


I cannot say enough good things about this incredible place. It’s beautifully decorated and is outfitted wonderfully with everything from extra sun hats to a yoga mat to spices. The beach in front of it is amazing. We saw multiple sea turtles in and out of the water. The cool breeze coming off the ocean makes this apartment airy and comfortable for sleeping and spending time. The apartment was absolutely spotless and is very close to multiple amenities. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone looking for a home-like place to stay on Maui

Great Vacation Rental


This condo gets five stars. It was perfectly located between a seemingly private beach, a beach/nocturnal sleep site for sea turtles, and a large beach that was clean and never crowded. This condo was unique in that it was situated in a popular area with lots of vacation condos but lacked a touristy feel. It was quiet, peaceful and charming. The condo itself was modern without being new and tastefully decorated in beach themes without being glamourous. It had all necessary amenities and handy leftover toiletries for our use making purchasing large bottles of shampoo, body wash and suntan lotion unnecessary. It lacked air conditioning, but had ceiling fans and a great oceanfront breeze to make up for it. My husband is extremely well travelled and declared the location and beachfront view the best he has ever had. We would return to this unit in a heartbeat. Management were also very responsive to our needs. Go ahead and book it. You won't be disappointed.
