We had a great time. The owner has made lots of upgrades. We stayed for eight days in May of 16. The weather was great for the most part.
Perfect location for a family holiday.
This was our second time renting this unit mainly because for us, there is no better location. Our teenagers could walk the beach or to shops on their own. Pool right off our lanai, loungers just steps away, Bbq's, beach and snorkeling right out front. When we were outside and needed something, whether it be a drink, food, washroom or just a break from the sun, it's like simply stepping inside from your own backyard. It's nothing fancy, in fact, a little tired, but it's well stocked and comfortable. The onsite manager is friendly and helpful.
Condo offered all amenities needed. It was wonderful having a full kitchen. The best part is the location. We were able to walk out of our sliding glass door and just steps from the pool and a few more feet to the ocean. The beach access is wonderful and never too crowded. Perfect spot to watch the sunset. Plenty of restaurants and stores within walking distance. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Grounds are spotless and quiet.
Fabulous location right on the ocean and next to beautiful beach
Lovely condo with everything we needed right there. Main floor walk out to the pool and grassed area right on the ocean. Beautiful sunsets! Stores close, right across the street. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Condo clean and well decorated. It was a wonderful place to vacation. We'll be back!
This was our 3rd time in unit 105.Had no concerns or complaints.
This visit. Although the floor looked clean my barefeet were black after only 2 hours of walking on it. I found a mop and washed the floor twice(a pail would have been nice)Noticeable dirty finger smudges on the microwave, fridge, cabinet door handles, oven door handle,and passage doors.Glass coffee table had noticeable rings and smudge marks. I wiped white marks and spots off the green cloth table chairs. The arm rests on the couch were sticky so they got wiped, also I wiped down the table chairs arms as well. The kitchen plastic garbage can had noticeable large brown spots on the outside. There were very noticeable shoe scuffs on the wall under the bar counter as well as on the walls in the second bedroom. The soap scum ring in the guest bedroom sink wasn't seen until I used the sink to rinse a wash cloth to wash my feet. I wiped down the front of the toilet tank because there was brown splash marks.
The dryer wasn't drying our clothes. Checked the dryer vent. It was completely full, 1 1/2inches of packed lint. Hate to think of the amount of energy lost. Guess I'm just at fault for not checking the vent before turning on the dryer then checking the wet clothes after 45 minutes. We then did a thorough vaccuming of the dryer.
I did phone ali'i management about my black feet who were great and sent a cleaning crew that afternoon who cleaned the floor and wiped down the wall below the counter, and anywhere else that I wanted cleaned.
This is a great location. Saw whales,dolphins and turtles. Beach and pool outside your door. Beautiful Sunsets from your lanai.The sound of breaking waves. Close to two public beaches. Stores and restaurants across the street. Easy access to the island of Maui. Very friendly caretaker.
Our Maui holiday was great! Always great weather in Kihei.
Definitely will return.
Perfect location with ocean view. pool and close to beach.
Service received was first class, including the provision of handicapped washroom facilities prior to our arrival. Upon arrival a welcome basket awaited. Home was very clean, well kept and tastefully furnished. Location was ideally located with easy access to ocean, with wonderful ocean views and sunsets from the lanai. Barbecue facilities made meal prep very easy. All in all nothing to complain about. Perfect vacation in perfect location.
We have stayed at this location 5 times. We always have enjoyed this part of Maui. Easy to explore island from this central location. Is on a great beach.
10 steps to the pool, maybe 30 to the beach, great view of the ocean, so nice to have the kids in their own room with their own bathroom too! We loved Maui and we loved the Kamaole Nalu and would definitely stay there again! Service was good: we noticed on the first day that the blender didn't work and the knives were dull. We asked about it and the next day a new knife and blender showed up. I think that's pretty good service!
Staying on the ocean in Kihei is paradise, so that fact masked any issues. The office staff were very nice, but the maintenance guy was a real killjoy. He banned my son from using his goggles in the pool and went out of his way to reprimand him until I finally had to have a word with him. We met the owners of #106 and really stuck up a great relationship. They had a 12 year old boy as well, and our boys became unseperable. Our unit had a real ant problem coming in from the ceiling above the refrigerator, but the office sent down someone to address the issue very promptly. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kam 2 is our favorite beach. We love Maui and specifically Kihei. We will try to get back again next year.
Terrific Ground Floor Unit
This unit is conveniently located on the ground floor near the pool and very close to the ocean. It has not been remodeled as nicely as some of the other Kamaole Nalu units but is quite clean and comfortable. The 2nd bedroom has 2 double beds instead of 2 singles like most of the other Kamaole Nalu units. I had a group; so the 2 double beds in the 2nd bedroom was a real plus for us.
