Well if you are one of those people who researches and researches about the perfect place well you found it. This best kept secret in Maui is located in Kihea minutes away from everything you need. This is my third trip to the island and by far my best. I've stayed in five star hotels and here are the reasons why I like this better.
You are a minute and 45 seconds away from the beach, you're not on the beach the Beach adjacent but is close As you possibly can get. The condo is immaculately clean and these two innkeepers thought of everything. This place has everything for a vacationing family, We had two teenage kids, Worked out perfectly.
The kitchen was well-equipped along with having Internet and Netflix available for the evenings. The reason I like this place so much is the the innkeepers: Cris and Phil Peacock we're extraordinarily helpful and buttoned up making the process very simple to rent. Mark my words if you're looking for a good vacation spot you found it.
Special thank you goes out to you both Phil and Chris for making our vacation unforgettable.
Beautiful accommodations would recommend the condo to all my family and friends. Their condo had everything you would need away from home. The welcome gift in the fridge absolutely perfect. The condo was a very quiet setting with quick access to the beach. The morning walks on the beach made my stay so peaceful and relaxing. I could go on and on. All I can say is the perfect condo for your stay on the island of Maui!
Our family of 3 just had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful condo. It is spacious, very clean, nicely furnished and has everything that is needed for a good time. The complex is located on a quiet street and right next to the beach. Beautiful view from lanai. Great big clean pool. Complex is small and most if the time there were just the 3 of us in the pool.
Walking distance from Ocean Center, nice restaurants and shops at the Maalea village. You can also book tours there. Easy access to freeway and great location to explore an island.
Amazing contrast to crowded Kihei and Lahaina, but just as comfortable and 10 minutes away from both. 10-15 minutes from grocery stores and Tropical Plantation with its farm stand where you can by fresh papaya and pineapples as well as vegetables and eggs.
Phil and Cris were very attentive, they sent us instructions on how to get to condo and how to go around and called about 1 day before the arrival to check if we are all set. They even left some food in the fridge when we said that we were arriving late at night.
If I ever go to Maui again, I will try to book this apartment again.
We loved staying at this beautiful condo. As this was our first family vacation via plane, I was a bit nervous to ensure we had everything we needed for the kid. Phil and Cris were amazing in letting us borrow toys and a lifejacket for him. The condo was more than well-equipped, and so appreciated, down to the laundry quarters and nail clippers. The condo itself absolutely gets 5 stars.
Everything else I'd rate at a 4 stars:
The location is central to the island, which is nice for day-trips, but is kind of hard if you just want to go down the street for food or to the grocery store, there's only 1 sit-down restaurant. We planned a simple menu ahead of time and cooked most of our meals at the condo.
There is a beach park next door, it was never too busy or noisy while we were there. There's enough sand space to build castles, but it's not an expansive beach. The waves were too big for our little dude (4yo) most of the time, and the wind can pick up quite a bit. It's the best beach on the island to take a long walk down.
The condo community is very quiet, or was when we were there. The pool was surprisingly unheated, so we didn't use it much.
Bottom line - this is a good place to just go hang out near the beach with a book.
The condo is just 10s of feet from the beach and nearly everything, except Hana, is within a reasonable drive. This condo was immaculate, everything you need to live comfortably, like your own home. We were amazed with all of the little details that Cris and Phil included: shampoo, beach toys/towels, and much, much more! We were absolutely blown away with the personalized card and goodies they left us too. I can't wait to come back and stay in their condo again!
