Historical Traveler Reviews Maui Kamaole Kihei
Very nice property, but condos vary widely...
We just stayed at the Maui Kamaole and the property itself is a very well-maintained, lush environment. The units are individually owned, and the quality varies widely. We reserved the top--of-the-line 2 Bedroom/2Bath Oceanview unit through Maui Condo & Home Realty. Our first night we stayed in an absolute dump of a unit (Unit I-214, for the record...) which had one A/C unit in the living room (none in either Bedroom), filthy carpets, broken electrical appliances and a list of other unpleasantries too long to list here. As it was a Sunday night, we were told we had to contact the off-site management office in the morning. When they did move us, not only were we not compensated for the nightmare of a condo, we were charged a "relocation fee" of $50.00 (reduced from the normal $100.00, what a wonderful surprise). The story had a happy ending, however as the condo we moved to was absolutely stunning. The decor and amenities were just gorgeous and the view was so beautiful that we didn't want to leave the place to do anything else. Overall, the property is very inviting, extremely well-located (South Kihei, right at the gateway to Wailea) and has gorgeous ocean and mountain views.
A nice place to stay on Maui
We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit during the last week of March, 2004. We were very happy with the accomodations, and would stay here again.
One thing that is nice about this property is that the buildings are not crowded onto a small piece of property. At Maui Kamaole the buildings have been carefully placed to maximize views on sloping property that is beautifully landscaped. Coming from the bare and downright ugly landscape of Minnesota at the end of the snowmelt in late March, I enjoyed the variety of trees and plants such as hibiscus and bougainvillea that were planted throughout the property. There is a lot of green space and the grounds are well-maintained.
Maui Kamaole has a convenient location - less than 30 minutes from the airport, and between grocery and other stores in Kihei and the resort restaurants and shopping of Wailea. Each unit has a reserved parking space very close by, which you would never find with the large resorts.
The two swimming pools are both nice - the newer one features nice landscaping, but the old one is also pleasant. There are two tennis courts in good condition. From our unit we had a nice view of the beach and the Maui sunsets. This property is across the street from a public boat landing and a good beach (Kam III). The only reason that someone might want a different property is if you want to be directly on the beach so that you can hear the surf at night. Our unit has been recently decorated. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was basic contemporary, with white cabinets. For the price range, I thought this was a very nice place to stay on Maui. I would definitely stay here again if I were to return to Hawaii.
A cut above
You will dig this spot. It's got Wailea quality at Kihei prices. Be sure to check out the upper pool. We got to talking to the guy who manages the place and he recommended spots all over the island. Quality units unlike some of the beat up condos all over Kihei. Our spot even got a bit of an ocean view and was completely brand new. Enjoy this bargain.
Love At First Sight
We were fortunate to spend almost 3 wonderful weeks on Maui in November 2003 staying at the Maui Kamaole. I can not vouch for any other units in this complex but the condo we stayed at was fantastic. The Unit number was J-216, a 2 bedroom ocean view, having all the amenities one could imagine. The owners have maintained their condo extremely well.
We arrived to a clean, seemingly freshly painted unit with all the comforts of home. I wouldn't hesitate a moment to stay again at the Maui Kamaole -- hopefully I could get J-216 again. Even as I write this review it seems I can hear the sun, sand and surf calling me back.
Flooded Condominium, Soured Carpets
We stayed in I-118 October 17 - 22. The condo flooded while we were there, due to a water filter installed by owner. We were forced to clean clean up the mess ourselves. They did come in later and wet vac the carpets, but it still soured. We had to put up with soggy carpets and the smell of soured carpets for our last three nights. The condominium management company, (Resort Quest) refused to move us to another condo or to refund any of our money.
Another thing about this first floor condo that was a problem - There were no privacy blinds, shutters or curtains on the windows. Anyone passing by could look into your rooms at anytime, including the landscapers who were outside my windows everyday!!!!
Honeymoon in Maui
We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was great. Stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed the large 1 bedroom, 2 bath, king size bed, washer and dryer, and the private lanai and courtyard. We had a rental car and made it all over the island. Can't go wrong when you are on Maui.
We stayed at the Maui Kamaole for 11 days in August. We were sorry to have to leave for stay in Honolulu! A well positioned, suberbly maintained property. We were in a one bedroom which had a ton of room for the four of us, 2 pools, a barbeque right outside available to all properties and very near some exquisite beaches South of us. The pools were so nice we had trouble going to the beach. Great golf at Makena, Wailea and Elleair all within 15 minutes plus many great restaurants one named Da Kitchen just up the road was 'da best'. The food and price were excellent. With all the things to do in Maui - Molokini, Haleakala, Lahaina, golf, Maui was great and Maui Kamaole a perfect fit. Being able to stock up at Costco, right by the airport for supplies, an additional savings and bonus
Loved the Maui Kamaole
We stayed at the Maui Kamaole for 7 days/6 nights. We had a 2 bedroom garden view. The condo was beautiful...very clean and spacious. It offers a loft bedroom that my daughter loved. Kamaole beach is walking distance across the street and the Wailea beach (gorgeous!) is a 5 minute drive. Every room had their own seperate air conditioners, so we set ours to individual preference. Our condo was in the back, which was great because it was very quiet at night. The concierge service was helpful getting activities set up for us because there is just so much to do and Kihei is in the middle of everything. We vacationed with 3 other couples who stayed at 3 different condos close by and the Maui Kamaole was by far the nicest. I would recommend it to anyone.
We enjoyed staying at Maui Kamaole for about 8 days. The 2 bedroom, oceanview condo was very comfortable, well decorated and furnished with enough kitchen stuff to make cooking easy. Having breakfast on the lanai is a good way to start any day! We were able to enjoy the ocean breezes due to the cross-ventilation and didn't use the air conditioners at all. The hot tub at the upper pool was relaxing and the beautiful flowers and landscaping really enhanced our visit. This is also a quieter part of Kihei since it is closer to Wailea than it is to Kihei town center. We were 5 minutes away from a luau in Wailea, but could still easily go see the views past Kapalua or Lahaina in a day's outing. Being so close to the 3 Kamaole beaches was great and it was also easy to go to Big Beach. If the maid had been a little more thorough before we arrived and if the towels and blankets were a little more luxurious, the ameneties would have been perfect, but still on a scale of 1 to 10, the overall experience was an 8. I would trust Maui Kamaole again.

... place is full on a rainy day. Took about an hour to check it out. It is like Monterey Aquarium only native for Maui so there is no kelp, just Coral. The water is clear here because it is a dessert with little life. Monterey has life and is not clear as a result. After the Ocean Center we drove to the Plantation down the road ...
... our first crop last year. We are waiting somewhat patiently for 18-24 months for the second harvest. After that, the plant is thrown away because the third and last harvest is a baby pineapple, too small to eat.
Cynthia had errands to run that were going to take the bulk of her day. I thought, BEACH TRIP! (Cynthia here: he had to take the "farm truck", our Ford F150 that is by now full of dents and scratches, so we had no worries about sending him off with it.)
Today we were due to check out of the hotel in Wailea at 12 but after some Melissa delays followed by the makeup attacking her contacts and causing havoc in the beautiful bathroom that we will soon miss, we departed about 45 minutes to an hour after the time we needed to depart in order to have a relaxing, but fun day. So that means we are going to be on another time crunch until we check in at the next hotel because we have no clue how long it will take us ...
... a stroll up the shore from our hotel. We scavenged for coral and other treasures on the beaches and took in the views from other properties. There are wild chickens and roosters here, and Owen just loves them. There was a group of them near the boat launch and Owen was in his glory. He was upset when we continued our hike. After we returned we promptly got ready for our BBQ supper plans and headed down to the ...
