Great unit

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice 2 bedroom unit. It is located on the second floor with a great view of the ocean, the beautiful lawn area and the pool. Very clean and comfortable. The owner was nice and very quick to respond to our questions. We would love to come and stay in this unit again.

Nice condo, but...

  • 3 of 5

The condo itself is nice. Good location, clean, lovely view. (As you may note from the photos however, the second bedroom has no view.) We enjoyed our week in Maui.

Unfortunately I cannot give the condo a high review, however, because of my dealings with the condo owner both before and after our stay.

Before our stay, Leena agreed that we could have an early (11am) check-in, but when we arrived from overseas after 16 hours of travel, we were disappointed to learn that Leena had failed to advise the front desk or the housekeeper of our early arrival, so we had to wait outside with our luggage for several hours before being allowed into the condo.

Then as stated above, we 4 adults proceeded to have a lovely week in Maui. We took good care of the condo, sweeping it every day, taking out the trash & recycling, washing the dishes. (As despite paying a significant housekeeping fee, the housekeeper does not come during the week.)

After what was a relaxing week, I was devastated to return home to an accusatory email from Leena claiming that we had "left stains on everything" and that "2 beach towels were missing", etc., and that she was not refunding our whole deposit. Then I had to spend a couple weeks of back and forth emails explaining those 2 "missing" towels were not in the condo to begin with, that we did not have any parties or leave any stains as far as I was aware (besides some sand on a mat), etc. Finally she grudgingly refunded most of our deposit.

We are very well-traveled and have never faced these types of accusations before. It left me feeling embarrassed and wronged, and took away from what should have been a relaxing holiday.

I sincerely hope that if you book this condo, you are treated with more respect and consideration from the owner than what we experienced.

Owner's Response: Katherine, I'm happy to hear you had a nice stay in Maui. I would like to address your comments regarding the issues you state. 1. The early check-in is a courtesy - as I already did was apologize, but I don't have full control over the housekeepers schedules. If the condo is ready prior to 3pm I have no problem with guests checking in early, but sometimes emergencies come up and I am not in 24/7 contact with the housekeeper. 2. I was told by the housekeeper of the damages, hence the request to hold back some of the deposit. You and I had an email communication and I agreed to investigate it further with the Housekeeper. I did not 'grudgingly' refund you back what was held back, but agreed after my further investigation with the housekeeper that she did not know what happened to the towels. Again, I did the due diligence, communicated with you immediately and refunded you back the $$$. When items are damaged to the point that they have to be replaced as they can't be cleaned properly due to the stains - this is the exact reason why a security deposit is taken.

Great little condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Kihei!

The condo had all the amenities comfortable for our family of four. We loved how there were beach mats, chairs and sand toys for our little one. The view was spectacular and loved the close proximity to the grills and pool. Just an fyi, the condo right next door is doing major renovation so there was a lot of construction noise.

Owner's Response: Hi Janipher, So happy to hear you had a great stay, and I can only apologize for the noise next door - the notices said it would be completed around June 2nd which doesn't seem to be the case. The noise had been on and off during my stay but wasn't too bad. They do try and get the renovations done quickly, so i'm hopeful there will be less impact to future guests. Thank you also for the heads up on the breakage - always helpful when we know ahead of time what needs to be replaced. Mahalo and hope to see you again soon. Leena

What a sunset!

  • 5 of 5

My first trip to Hawaii and thoroughly enjoyed it. The condo was even better than expected. The balcony was thoroughly used. What a treat to sit out there with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. The kitchen was fully stocked and did like that the laundry was so close. Went there to relax and did. Just pop outside on stairs or elevator if needed and walk to beach. It's right there - no roads to cross. Stroll the beach or take a chair and read and relax. Doesn't get any better. Thank you Leena!
