Ok, so its been a few years since my last visit but I can tell you that the Maui Kamaole was truely a nice place to stay. Understand that all the condos are individually owned so the interiors vary from unit to unit. We stayed in the Anthurium cluster, #115, just as you drive in. We had an ocean view off the front lanai. Table, chairs, lounges and a perfect view. Ours was clean and nicely furnished including all the needs in the kitchen. One bedroom, two full baths and a private patio in back as well.
Staying in Kihei is cheaper than staying in Wailea with the resort rates. In the past I have stayed at the Rennaissance Wailea and absolutely loved it but it can be very pricey compared to the Maui Kamaole. The nice thing about having a condo compared to a hotel room is the kitchen. You can save much $ cooking your own breakfast/lunch and then go out for a nice dinner in the resorts or any of the many places along Kihei Road. Maui Tacos and Alexanders are two of my favorites for lunch or an inexpensive dinner.
You are on the edge of Kihei with a short drive into Wailea to use the beaches. We parked at the Renaissance and walked through the lobby as if we were guests and never had a problem.
As for the Luas, once youve been to one, youve been to them all. I dont bother anymore. Check to find where Jamie Lawrence is playing in Wailea. Beautiful acoustic Hawiian music to enjoy with a cocktail and sunset. Very romantic. Dont bother with the snorkle rentals at the resorts either. Check into Snorkle Bobs or some of the other dive shops. Rentals for the week are inexpensive.
Bugs? All my trips to the islands and I remember seeing one bug...and that was on Front St. Yes it was big!...but its the tropics. Bugs are part of the deal.
If you want to stay in a great location and save some money, I recommend the Maui Kamaole. Ust the cash to upgrade your rental car to a convertable! Its worth it.
