Amazing location and delightful hospitality
We spent 4 lovely days at this place and had a great time. The apartment is clean and well appointed and super convenient to the beach and many other things in Kihei. We (2 adults and a kid) were very comfortable. But even better than the apartment was the warm welcome we received from Arlene and Derrick with whom we shared meals, games and sunsets. We felt like we made new friends and had that great experience while traveling, when you get a good feeling about what life is like living and working in that place. We hope to return soon. Thanks for a great vacation!
Misleading and disappointing
I have stayed at a lot of VRBO properties and this one was disappointing for what I was expecting according to their description and pictures. This is an ocean VIEW property which is different than ocean front. The view from this apartment is mostly the roof of the owners home. You can see the ocean but if you're hoping to potentially see whales or turtles from your room then bring your binoculars. It is also not air-conditioned in which I was perfectly fine with except that you can't leave the windows open at night due to the street noise that is directly below the window. It is indeed located DIRECTLY above/beside the very busy entrance to Charley Young Beach therefore it is very noisy from 5 a.m. (garbage truck beeping) to midnight. Even with the windows closed, there is a lot of street noise. Perhaps their adjacent apartment is quieter but view would not be any better. TINY deck for standing only. If you sat you wouldn't see ocean anyway.
The owners view from where they live directly below would be amazing and that is where the pictures of the hammock are taken. You are free to use the hammock but I wasn't comfortable being in their front yard. It also would have been helpful to have beach chairs to take to beach. I didn't feel like they would want sand in the only 2 beach towels brought into the apartment. There are also very, very few amenities. No microwave. No paper towels. Only 1.5 rolls of toilet paper, 1/2 a small box of tissues. No kitchen washcloth. Only one dish towel and only one washcloth. There are also teeny, teeny, tiny bugs that you see occasionally running across the counter tops in kitchen and bathroom. I am not sure if that is common or just this particular vintage apartment. Many of these things can be improved except for the noise and view.
I felt we would have been better off staying at a hotel. The bed was the best part. The sheets were very quality and bed was soft. Depending on what time of year you go, you aren't going to see the sunset either. You will have to walk to an opening in the trees. Also, couldn't keep
counters clean because no washcloths and then used the one wash cloth that was meant for bathroom to wipe the counters. They were always dirty due to wind coming through windows even when shut because of their age and louver type). I love VRBO's but definitely NOT this one.
We strive to make sure that every guest feels welcome on the property and is very comfortable in the apartment so in response to this review we stocked the bathroom with more toilet paper and the kitchen with more paper towels.
And in all fairness to ourselves and our prospective guests I might add that we have over 87 positive, joyful 4 & 5 star reviews (here on VRBO as well as one other popular vacation rental platform that we use) boasting of the view, the beach, the property and the hammock, the apartment decor, the hospitality and on and on. Our listing description is very transparent, it’s detailed in all honesty, if it’s read through in it’s entirety there is nothing misleading; we offer simple, authentic accommodations next to a busy beach park. It all depends on what you are looking for, this place is best suited to those who interact with gratitude in the natural world and who value the island spirit of Aloha more than a long list of amenities offered by your average condo complex. There is no shortage of condo's in Hawaii but our place happens to be one of a kind. If your interest is peaked by our lovely photographs, please read all of our gracious reviews and read the listing description in it's entirety so you can make an informed choice. Mahalo nui loa.
Maui ocean view
Amazing and hate to leave, love the ocean so close it has been an amazing journey on this island. First time, not as much to see and do as Kauai where we are headed but good place to rest and take in the beauty.thanks for offering your home and all the extras and the nice clean island flare.
We loved the Vintage Beachfront Studio. The owners were wonderful and full of knowledge about the area. You can lay in bed and look at the ocean and the whales breaching. We could walk everywhere and Charley Young beach was two seconds away from the apartment and it is a great swimming and walking beach. The little kitchen had everything we needed and we had tons of nice towels for the bathroom and beach.
