Recently returned from beautiful Maui after a 10 day stay of pure relaxation and beauty. My son recently transitioned to Maui and booked this condo for us (Unit 433 two bedrooms) through cbislandvacations.com. Major updated renovations were recently inputted on this site. Central air throughout and wide screen TVs in every room. Cute turtle decor theme. Couch accommodates more sleepers.. Wonderful unit..spotlessly clean with kitchen packed to the nines with all updated accessories. Very attentive add-ons...books...games. Long spacious lanai with access from both master bedroom and living room. Second bedroom closet stacked with all you require for fun, fun, FUN in the sun. Towels...beach chairs...snorkeling gear...golf clubs...you name it!!! We called it the giving closet! Only thing missing was an umbrella but hey! ...that's a small price to pay in picking your battles in pure paradise. Bought an umbrella and an extra chair and put it right back in that "giving closet" for someone else to enjoy. Stunning panaramic views lounging on the lanai from Haleakala Summit to the left to full frontal views of the ocean....to a peek of another glorious volcanic mountain off to the right. You will not be disappointed so try and reserve this particular unit waaaay early if you can. I certainly will on returning. You will not be disappointed.

Do not, DO NOT , book unit 528! We’ve been coming to Maui for years and always stay at at Villages By The Sea because we love it! We booked this unit on 1-14-21 and on our day arrival (9-3-21) we were told the unit was “unrentable!” Unbelievable!! We had all our luggage standing at the front door, ready to begin our Hawaii vacation. The rental company did a great job in re-locating us last minute but without explanation, we could only assume the unit owner of 528 had someone else to use the unit because we saw other people in the unit!! Do not, DO NOT book this unit!!!

If I could give this place a 0 star I would. We stayed here May 27-Jun 2 at Kauhale Makai by Maui Condo and Home. Im writing this to warn everyone how disgusting this place can be. We walked in the 1st day, the receptionist was very nice and very informative with where to find our room, the code and pool. That’s about the last positive thing I can say about this place. Our room smelled like an old grandparent’s place where they havnt cleaned in months. It just smelled “OLD” and dusty. Every counter, every surface was so dusty. ITS LIKE THIS PLACE WAS NOT TOUCHED IN YEARS. The A/C vent was full of molds and apliances were ones you would find in the 1980s, like old vacuums and old blender. They had a VCR and a DVD player. That’s cool and retro and not up to date. Our child played in the curtains for just one second and he was full of dust when he came out. I swiped my hand over the curtains and had dust on my fingers. There is someone’s hair left on the certain of the shower. After complaining to the manager. They agreed to cleaning up the place. But not until the next day. So we had to sleep in this dusty old looking place over night before they addressed the problem. The next morning, two people came and started cleaning up the place. They did removed the old smell by straying disinfectant everywhere and wiping the surfaces and sweeping the porch, but the dust was still there. I pointed out the dirty A/C vent and they said its mold and they couldn’t do anything about it. WOW. UNBELIEVABLE. That’s how you treat your guest. What is funny was that their ad shows they do enhance cleaning. Ya….right enhance cleaning After complaining to management again. He offered to give us a refund for the remaining days or deep clean the room, which would take two days. THIS PLACE SHOULD BE READY BEFORE WE ARRIVE. But the problems was, its hard to find a descent place at a good price in MAUI that day. It was too stressful and too much of a hassle to go through that and we already spent a lot on this trip. We sucked it up and stayed the rest of the time in this place. But that does mean this place does suck. I will no longer consider staying at hotels and motels. Ill be going pure AirBnB from now on.

We absolutely love this condo. The condo is modern and beautifully decorated with hardwood floors and marble tile. The kitchen is well stocked with high-end cookware. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Big screen TV with all of the viewing options. Beautiful ocean front condo steps from the beach. We had to extend our stay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Denise, graciously accommodated our needs. A+ owner. We will define be back.

We stayed in this condo with our adult children for 6 nights. We were surprised that it needed major repairs & renovations. The photos do not show all the defects but there are broken mirrors, broken tiles, venetians falling apart & just an older tired condo. We enjoyed the position but the price was very high so we felt it did not represent value for your money. AA Oceanfronts manage this accommodation & they were helpful & understood our issues but there is only so much one can do without renovations.
