“Papakea unit L407 is great”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed in unit L407, rented through west maui condos. I have to say this was a wonderful unit. The oceanfront lanai view was amazing. Slate flooring through out except the loft. Nice appliances and furniture. Owners left many amenities for us, beach chairs, coolers, ice packs, golf clubs and balls for the putting greens, boogie board, and stocked cupboards of spices and paper products. Just wish the resort had a sand beach. But would highly recommend.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

We just got home from a amazing vacation in Maui.
We stayed in D-407. The owner was very easy to work with & answered all my questions before a contract was signed.

When we initially stepped into the condo I was surprised about how dated the walls looked, then again so did all the buildings on the property. The kitchen & bathroom looked like they had just been upgraded. The kitchen looked great.
The view from the lanai was breath taking. The staff was very courteous.

The unit was very clean, had all everything needed to make you feel at home. The kitchen supplies were fully stocked. There were tons of towels. It was very nice to have a washer/dryer. Chase N' Rainbows was very fast in taking care of any issues.

There were all the kids supplies, but we didn't use them as we didn't have small ones.
The unit only had scrabble, but you didn't come to Maui to play board games.
The unit got warm during the day so the fans & the a/c were nice to have to cool the unit down. The nights got cold so fans were not needed. The kids loved the beds upstairs & the room to spread out.

as for the beach supplies, the small kick board was broken in pieces & the only one adult snorkel set had a mask. I tried to let the owner know about these things, as she lived in Canada. There was no response (this only 4 of 5 stars)

Beaches, activities & restaurants are all within driving distance. We saw turtles along the seawall around 8:30am & 5:00pm.

We had an amazing time & would stay in this unit again.

We just spent a week here and it was a solid 3 star place. We stayed in c308 and the view from the "ocean view" room was great, definitely worth the upgrade. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. The bathroom and kitchen were recently updated, and all the floors are tile which is a huge plus. (Nothing worse than walking around on a dingy rug). The living room couch was kind of gross (old and very used) so we put a sheet over it. The bed was fine but the bedroom furniture needs an upgrade. The unit was spacious and fine for what we (two honeymooners) needed. Apparently many of the units are privately owned, so you don't really know what you're going to get. I'm under the impression they vary greatly. The biggest downside for me was that the complex is not a beachfront property, but there are beaches practically every two feet in Maui, and we went to one two minutes down the road a few times. The reason I stayed here in the first place was because I was able to exchange my timeshare here, and that would be the only reason I would stay here again, because I like beachfront property, but it's a decent place for the price. If you're used to staying at 4 or 5 star spots, this probably isn't the place for you, but not for nothing, if you're in Maui and you are spending a lot of time at your lodging, then don't bother going to Maui.

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth the price, but probably not ocean front. Ask for a room that has been updated...

I enjoyed staying at this property. Most, if not all, rooms have a great view of the ocean. Parking is so convenient. The location itself is also great - a short drive to Kapalua Bay, Whaler's Village, and much more. Our room was a bit dated but it had everything we needed, was clean, and worked well for us so overall, no complaints. If you are looking for an affordable room in a really good location, stay here.

Room Tip: Call ahead to request a ground floor unit.

Four adults plus three children rented a 3 bath , two bedroom plus loft unit. Convenient location, a short drive to Lahania, and Black Rock Beach. Recently redecorated, clean, well stocked. Closet full of vacation toys, snorkelling gear, beach chairs, beach towels, boogy boards. Enjoyed our stay. Balcony renovations on adjacent building was a downer.

Room Tip: Not all VRBO units are equal, check carefully.

The condo had everything we needed. A little dirty when we arrived, but hotel staff responded immediately. We were there during "Hurricane Iselle" and the staff was wonderful and kept everyone up to date on the happenings. Concierge could have been a bit more knowledgeable and helpful.

Room Tip: All units have water view so you can't go wrong.

Me and my Husband had a fun time at Aston. The location is amazing with easy access to beach !!!! The only problem we faced is when we arrived to the location, even when we had called 2 hours prior, the room was not ready. We had to wait almost 30 min past the check-in time for our condo. But the staff gave us a better condo facing ocean to make it up. So no regrets :)
