Had to move to another unit due to discovery of bed bugs

  • 2 of 5

Checked into this unit, but did not stay long due to our discovery of what appeared to be bed bugs. We killed one in a tissue and quickly headed out to buy spray, which we doused the bed/ bed area in as we had just unpacked all of our things. I commend the property manager for quickly getting us into another unit in the Whaler that same night. We ended up feeling comfortable there for our 8 night stay. However surprised there was no follow up with us after that, given the severity of the issue. The complex is great and in an ideal location. My concern would be the cleanliness for units not managed by the Whaler themselves. For this reason can’t say I would recommend

Owner's Response: Having interviewed all the parties involved in your recent experience we learned from both the Whaler management and our Maui Beachfront Rentals Management that EcoLab who serviced the unit after your departure determined they could find no bedbugs or insects at the time of their inspection. The island has been experiencing more than usual beetle-like pests that appear mostly after sunset. We suspect that this is what you most likely encountered. These are quite typical in tropical locations and in no way indicate substandard cleaning. We encourage our guests to keep the screens closed especially after sunset. MBR also takes extra measures and ensures that all bedding (mattress, box springs, sofa mattresses) are enclosed with bed bug protectors. As you may recall you did indeed receive 2 separate follow up communications from our office manager after you were relocated to an upgraded full one bedroom ocean view unit to be sure you were comfortable. We are unaware of any severe issues that you implied that would have required any additional communications with you during the remainder of your stay.

good location but out dated and scary bathroom

  • 3 of 5

The property is in a good location. The kitchen is outdated and many things broken-drawer, counter top..I can put up with an outdated kitchen. But broken things should have been fixed. The worst part is the bathroom. Did anyone look up on the bathroom ceiling. There are so many fussy things (asbestos?, mold? ..)growing in it. It makes me feel very uncomfortable. I can send you a pictures if you want! Dirty bathroom is not acceptable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, Regine. We also always look for what we're doing right, and where we can improve. We can assure you there is no dangerous mold in this unit, or asbestos. We have since your review, gone into the unit, and made sure there were no signs of mold, and this is the first time we've heard of anyone encountering this in our unit. The ceiling tiles can tend to get dirty, but we do have a note to our cleaning staff to concentrate on keeping up on it. We feel our pictures are very current, and display our condo appropriately, but we will take your recommendation for doing some updating into account. Thanks for staying with us. Maybe we can get you back for a better experience. Mahalo!

Very Impressed

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Maui Beachfront for taking such good care of us on our recent trip to Maui. Booking, checking in and out, and even answering a few dumb tourist questions, you guys were great (and helpful). The condo was nice, clean, and kept, exactly what we'd hoped for. This resort's location is prime. While we lounged most of our stay, it was nice to have some many options for fun surrounding us.

You're doing it right

  • 5 of 5

My better half and I came to Maui for a little winter vacation and stayed here. Condo was superb in its condition and offerings. Location was perfect. The Rental company was very easy to deal with. Some nice views and sites to see very close to the resort, and the golfing at the nearby course was sublime. Wish we didn't have to come back so soon.

Very happy and satisfied guests!

  • 5 of 5

This condo worked just magnificently for us. We came for our honeymoon, wishing to stay somewhere relaxing and romantic with maybe some touristy things to do nearby. Check, check, and check. This condo was clean and professionally looked after, quiet, and stocked with the amenities we needed. As much as we liked the condo, the location was as almost awesome. There is much to do within easy walking distance of the resort. Multiple restaurant options, shops, golfing, jet skiing, luaus, all very close and all very fun. The nearby beaches are some of the best we've ever laid out on. Soft sand, gentle waves, plenty of room to lay out without having folks right next to you or stomping through. This place was absolutely ideal for us and I would highly recommend.

March 2015 vacation

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your Maui condominium. I would advise other travellers that this is comfortable accommodation but somewhat tired and dated; not a problem unless you are seeking a more "upscale" unit. The suite was clean and very functional and we found the shady lanai a convenient respite from the sun and heat. My only suggestion to the owners is that the bathroom ceiling tiles over the shower are desperately in need of cleaning! Otherwise this is a great value unit!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review, Hootie. We are glad this unit worked out so well for you. It certainly is a great value to be so near the beach. We will look into getting those bathroom ceiling tiles cleaned. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. It was pleasure having you as our guest. We hope you do consider staying with us again in the future.
