We stayed five nights in the Ginger Suite in early November and were very pleased with it. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, kitchenware, and a dishwasher. The bathroom appeared to have been recently remodeled and looked like something from a fancy hotel. There were plenty of linens along with beach chairs, an umbrella, and boogie boards. A washer and dryer were available on site. If you are going to the grocery store, ask Jackie and Larry for the code to get the club discount.
The property is small – just three units on the ground floor – the owners live upstairs and are very nice. It’s just a few steps from the property to the sand of Kamaole I Beach Park. If you tire of the beach, the shady patio has plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and our room had a nice selection of paperback books.
Note that the Ginger Suite’s only view of the ocean is from one window. It also has a private lanai and the lanai has a better view of the water. The only negative is that the Ginger Suite is in the back of the property, so it is closer to S. Kihei Road, which is noisy at times. To deal with the noise at night we closed the windows and just turned on the air conditioner.
