About the property

walk to everything, washer/dryer, pool, shared kitchen and bath w retired owner

Female retired owner is sharing her condo with another female guest ONLY! NO EXCEPTION! Sorry.

Welcome to our wonderful bright, sunny and super central located condo from a convenient starting location.

The unit has nice ocean and park views and is well suited for 1 female guests.

The living room has full ocean views that can be enjoyed even more from the outside lanai. It includes a comfy couch and coffee table, flat screen TV and a bar seating area for adjacent to the kitchen counter. We have installed a new Murphy queen size bed that can be folded away during the day if needed.

AC and ceiling fans will keep you comfy and cool. We provide free WiFi and free long distance phone calls to the mainland and Canada.

Your are sharing: kitchen and bath with owner who is a retired quiet lady.

A full size kitchen, with all the needed appliances from fridge, dishwasher, microwave and stove and all the essential small appliances from blender to toaster and coffee maker to make sure your stay is off to a good start in the morning.

The unit is equipped with washer and dryer which is tremendously convenient and will allow you to pack light.

It has a full bath with a new installed walk in shower.

Owner has own private bedroom on the other side of the condo, which allows plenty of privacy for you as a guest in the living room with a comfy queen Murphy bed.

Condo is located in a lively and bustling neighborhood and you can enjoy ocean views through-out the living and kitchen area. You are first row to witness all the activities that come with it. Like surfers getting ready to go out and catch some waves on a stand up paddle or surfboard. It will involve street and people noises but it calms down mostly after 3 pm and then again after sunset.

You can walk to one beach right across or explore 1 block south a wonderful wide open sandy Charley Young/Kamaole I Beach. From there you can walk for miles from one beach to the next all the way to famous resort beaches in Wailea. Or take the car and cruise the coastline for a few minutes to explore about 10 more beaches all the way to the famous Makenna beaches. Explore different snorkeling or scuba places and many more activities like a kayak excursion only a few minutes from the condo. Or how about a whale watching trip during the winter month, again tours depart closely by and some companies provide free shuttle services that leave from the condo.

You can walk to many stores for all your daily needs and / or for great local gift shopping. There are farmers markets nearby but all grocery stores sell local grown produce which makes things very convenient and simple. If you like to enjoy some time away from the kitchen you have many restaurants to choose from and for every budget. Some with great ocean views and local fish specialties or some simple ‘take out type dining’ that you can enjoy in many parks along the beaches here. There is great night life in walking distance and breakfast bars with fresh local Hawaiian coffees to taste through and everything you never thought of but can’t resist to try.

You can book activity tours right next door, rent scuba gear downstairs in building, get fresh squeezed organic juices, vegetarian raps, gluten free menus, mouthwatering fresh standard sandwiches and more in the building as well.

The studio truly is in the heart of one of the most desirable vacation spots of Maui.

I can provide more details later on during booking process.

And yes we do have some standard beach gear for you, like beach chairs and towels, umbrella and ice box.

With this simple and clean unit you can explore Maui on a ‘friendlier’ budget and we guarantee you outstanding service before and during your stay. (if needed)

Can’t wait for you to come and enjoy all the best that Maui has to offer, with its balmy tropical nights and its sunny Hawaiian days.

Mahalo for taking the time to read this.

With warm Aloha,

Dated but very clean.

  • 3 of 5

The only really bad thing about this place was the mattress. The furnishings were older but that didn’t matter. If they would’ve invested a little in the mattress I would’ve given this place A higher rating.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks so much for taking the time to share. We are glad to hear from your other email that you enjoyed the great location allowing to walk to many attractions. Sorry that the bed was not comfy for you. The $3500 wall bed came with a Serta, queen size mattress and was purchased in 2016. It is a top rated brand name, and a $600 retail value. We also have a $75 memory foam mattress cover on top of it and this is the first and only complaint. Also we know of one person who had back issues that slept on it several times and found it to be a comfortable mattress. We know beds are a very individual thing and we do provide an additional memory foam pad upon request. It saddens me that you didn't reach out to us while there. With gratitude and warm Aloha for choosing our studio Dori & team

Central, great views

  • 4 of 5

The location was very central, close to lots of shops and grocery store, as well as surf shops and the best beginner surf spot. The apartment is a little older, but still clean and well kept. It was not the quietest location, as the beach volleyball courts across the street were usually busy every night until 9pm. The traffic on S.Kihei Road is fairly constant as well, and activity really picks up right around 6am, so if you’re looking for isolation and peaceful this would not be ideal. Great value for the location though, and the apartment was well stocked with everything you could need on your trip to Maui. Mahalo Dorli and team!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This studio unit is a very comfortable studio with comfortable furniture and a murphy bed. The kitchen has most things you need to prepare meals, a nice fridge, stove, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. There are pots and pans in good condition. Even little things like paper and pens, clips and rubberbands, extra batteries, and extra fans. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast on the lanai while watching the activities at the surf/stand up paddle board rental/school across the street every morning. You can see the people surfing and paddling the waves in front of the nice park across the street. We also enjoyed watching the volleyball players in the park in the evenings and walking over to the waters edge to watch the sunsets. There is a washer dryer in the unit which is very convenient and beach supplies on the lanai. The pool and deck area are very nice with tables and clean gas bbqs for eating outside or taking your bbq'd food back to your condo. We happened to hit a very warm week with no trade winds and the AC quite working. Carole, the onsite manager worked very hard to get us a new one and have it installed within 2 days, which is quite a feat there. The building hallways and elevators are kept spotless. There are cafes, a nail salon, a massage studio and home decor store on the retail first level. Restaurants, food trucks and shopping are all within a few blocks. All-in-all it was a great stay. There are six miles of great beaches to explore and this condo is right in the middle of it all.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

I didn't experience anything like the previous review. The condo is a clean and cozy studio space with a nice lanai. The furnishings and decorations were tasteful and the Murphy bed was comfortable. Many necessities for the kitchen, laundry and beach were provided and appreciated. I would like to rent this unit again as the rent was extremely reasonable compared to larger units or Maui hotel room rates and I'm already planning my return trip in 2017.

Tacky, outdated, and in bad need of an upgrade

  • 2 of 5

The pictures and description make this place sound a lot better than it is. We arrived to find a unit that hasn't been touched since the 1970s. Mold in the shower, gross carpet, towels so old they smelled musty, mismatched plates and pans, a very incomplete kitchen (no lids to pots, no oven mitts), an air conditioning unit that did not work consistently and would constantly trip the breaker, ancient mismatched linens and NO nice little touches (soap or toiletries). I had specifically told Dorli we were just engaged and she did NOTHING special for us (restaurants and the hotel we stayed in did). The location is super convenient, which was key, and I would stay in this complex again, but never in this unit. When I emailed Dorli during our stay to discuss the AC unit, her reply was abrupt and rude and she did little to help. Don't stay here.

Owner's Response: Aloha Anjulie, I am very sorry that you were dissatified with our unit. I agree that the unit is vintage style but all is clean and in great working conditions. The needed upgrades have been made, (brand new bed, comfy sofa, and new shower enclosure. Mold is a serious accusation and we know that it does not exist in any of our units, (we sterilize and steem clean them before each guest and if you forget to leave the door open and not airing it out, it will build up withing days since you are right across from the ocean. When you contacted me about the AC you did not meantion anything about the shower as we guaratnee our services and would have been in there within the hour to get it cleaned. We have meanwhile replaced the AC and offered doing it during your stay but you did not allow us to enter the unit. For replacing the AC during your stay my service had an appologie gift basket ready for you as well. For unforseen events we always try to make it right. I understand that you were disapointed since we didn’t make you feel special on your engagement but I know I try my hardest to be kind, fair and polite to all my guests. ‘Rude’ is not a charcter trait of mine and I apologize if you felt that way. It makes me very sad. Here is one of many emails I get, that one just came in ecently. (there are tons more on my website on all my other condos) From: Mike Sent: Monday, May 30, 2016 10:05 PM To: Dorli Ederer Subject: Re: IS condo Dorli, it has been a pleasure to rent from you and I do hope to come back to Maui one day. You have been very accommodating and your concern to our stay has been very appreciative. Mahalo
