My wife and I celebrated 20 yrs. staying at unit # 310 in May 2008. The condo exceeded our expectations. First off, it was spotless. New bed, queen w/ 4 posts. Like sleeping on a cloud. Very well equipped kitchen, everything works fine. The only negative, the spices in the rack didn't like the humidity. Well lit double sink bathroom...

We stayed in room # 310 at the Kauhale Makai in September 2008. What a fabulous room ! We booked the room thru aaoceanfront.com - our second time using this company. Everything was perfect ! The condo is sparkling from top to bottom. It has two flat screen tv's , a beautiful kitchen, great balcony. The bathroom has a huge...

Watch the waves crash from the balcony! This was an amazing place to stay, ultra chic and fabulous! It feels like you are walking into a brand new condo and it is so comfortable. A close distance to a great nightlife and town in the day. I would suggest this place to anyone I promise you will love it. Come...

chose this hotel/condominium because this was my fifth time to maui and I really only needed a good place to sleep. I was not really looking for a resort with full services. The problem with this place, as with all condo hotels, is that the units are individually maintained by the unit owners so there is a lot of variability....

We stayed at the complex July 2008. We flew in to Maui late at night, and arrived in the dark. I had contacted the complex to find out whether they would be open when we got there - good thing since they didn't let us know we would be on lock box and would need a code. They left a...

Aloha, Expedia is to blame more than the Condo Managment. Expedia claimed their rooms have partial ocean view when all they had was 2 BR with ocean views. May be one or two 1 BR partial views which were booked up. Other than that the place was old and dirty. The linens were not so clean. Choose somewhere else if...

We stayed at "Village By The Sea" a few years ago, and I'm just getting around to reviewing it now! Honestly, I forgot the name of the place...but not because it was forgetul. It was probably the best extended vacation I've ever been on, and Kauhale Makai was a big reason why. I wish I could remember what room number...

When we walked in we looked for the bedroom, but all we saw was a living room with one of those wall-fold-out beds. the tv was incredibly small, maybe 11 inches and was only visible from the couch. the view was awesome though, from our room we saw a perfect view of the ocean with palm trees and waves and...

We returned to Maui and had a one bedroom unit at Village by the Sea. Just before our trip we got a letter that the pool would be closed but we could use the one next door (which was ok since that pool was nicer). When we got there they also had half of the parking lot closed off for...

We booked our stay through Expedia.com for a studio condo at Kauhale Makai but were upgraded to a one-bedroom condo once we actually arrived. The front desk women were friendly and talkative and we had no trouble checking in, we even checked in about two hours early. The condos are all privately owned so each one will be different. We...
