This review is specifically for the VRBO condo unit #110 at Paki Maui.
We are seasoned travellers and much prefer to experience new places fully, than merely stick to the 5-star all-inclusive bubble. So we approached this condo with an open mind, and were ready for anything. I had seen great reviews, about which I was somewhat sceptical, and scathing reviews of Paki Maui in general which I took with a grain of salt.
In the end, we were extremely pleased to find unit #110 was as good as we could have hoped. Nicely renovated, first floor, nice view of the ocean, clean, good kitchen, great location, very nice grounds. The whole condo building was a LOT nicer than I had been lead to believe by other reviews we'd seen. It provided a laundry room, had nice gardens inside, was generally kept well.
Our 2 kids are young (<10 years), and much appreciated the ocean front. We knew it was not pure beach, but there was plenty for them to enjoy on the shoreline, and they loved playing in the pools along the beach+shore and in the park next door. When we rented we were pleased there was a pool, but in the end we were so busy with activities and other beaches that we never even used the pool!
We made good use of the kitchen for breakfast and some dinners, nice bathroom for showers etc. We were happy to be at this part of West Maui; personally I think this quieter end is the nicest part from what we saw.
This is a great value place. The only downside is the pull-out couch is not great for sleeping on (the little kids managed with it). Other than that, it was very nice to have a place that was so well appointed with kitchen equipment, and even boogie-boards for the kids to play with in the sea.
The agent was great in helping us get everything orgainzed. We'd definitely stay here again.
