Our family of 6 adults(Retired parents, 2 adult children with their spouses) stayed in this cosy condo.
The kitchen was very well stocked, probably the best stocked kitchen we have ever come across in a rental/time share.
We used the condo as a base for our adventures around Maui and found it well situated on the island for day trips.
The condo is close to an ABC store for quick runs for essentials ( like detergent) or a quick drive to Safeway for groceries. We never felt we were far from anything.
The location on the beach is perfect for early morning walks with a cup of coffee, watching the sunrise and just taking in the natural beauty. The beach here is never crowded.
The only thing we could have done with is having 3 true bedrooms. The bedrooms upstairs are open to the main living space below. The one bedroom has 2 twin beds and has more privacy, with a wall and door off the hallway and partially open to the living space below. The second bedroom is open to the whole loft area with a queen bed and the people staying in the twin bedroom must walk past the queen bed to reach the bathroom. We worked out a system that never had us running into each other to access the bathroom and in the end we adapted to our space.
Maybe this layout lends itself better to a young family or a couple with children staying upstairs. But 4 adults sharing that space was a bit tight. However, this is my opinion, as I do like my privacy.
Overall, for the price, quality of the accommodations, comfy beds, and quietness of the area, we ended up with a great find.
Thank You Kihei Sands for the memories!
