We are currently staying in Maui Kam J118. We stayed in the J complex before and really enjoyed it....BUT there is MAJOR construction going on across the street and it is noisy from 7:30 am to 4:30. Think of sitting almost in the middle of a construction site. The new buildings may also block your view when completed. This is not a bad condo and previously we just enjoyed the great views and peace and quiet. Everything is a bit worn out but the charm is still there. The management is in transition and all of this is not COVID related.
great location for a family holiday - close to great beaches and easy to walk to restaurants and coffee shops. 2 pools at the property - always able to get a chair by the pool. very quiet resort. Our unit was very spacious and updated - the only concern was no a/c in the 1 bedroom as it was awaiting repair. Nice green space for watching the sunset. shower off facilities by the car park for easy removal of sand before entering the condo.
Warning: If you're interested in Maui Kamaole Condo's - do NOT book with Maui Condo & Home LLC. The property mgmt company already has two negative reviews with the Better Business Bureau (in both 2018, and 2019) specifically regarding their booking practices. This will soon be the third. Maui Condo & Home has a zero cancelation policy, and will not even accept a cancelation fee - regardless of whether the reservation for 6 months in advance and the cancelation request was made within 48 hours. Now the company is currently aggressively working to re-book this apt. unit on VRBO/HomeAway without refunding us, thus working to double their profits by keeping our money and getting someone else's. Steer clear of them!
Aside from the traffic from Kihei to Hana there is little downside to Maui. at least for me. Maui Kamaole condos are conveniently located, close to shops, restaurants, and just a hop away to beaches and site seeing opportunities. We stayed in a well-appointed second story ocean condo that provided us with an unobstructed view of the ocean, evening sunsets, and cool afternoon breezes. Keep this in mind when selecting any of the plethoras of sites available. Having a view from the covered veranda was the respite we looked forward to as the sun set and settled. Selecting a place can be a daunting undertaking and as I mentioned there are plenty to choose from. Units are priced based on what they have to offer, proximity to the beach and of course the "view". The view extends the enjoyment 20X, so the added expense is a well-spent option. Mahalo. …
First time staying right in Kehei and this was a great choice. The unit we were in was clean and in very good condition. We were at most a five minute walk to Kamaole 3. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops etc.
