We had a wonderful 12 days in unit 117. it is ground floor so you really feel a connection with the ocean. It is one from the corner, so it has privacy. The unit is perfectly appointed if you want to enjoy meals in the condo. So many knives that actually slice and even a salad spinner! The kitchen and...

We have stayed here more than half a dozen times and will continue to come back. It is a beautiful property with assigned parking, a community pool in the centre of the grounds and has beach front access. There is a beautiful ocean view from anywhere you stay in the complex. The single bedroom units are on the ground flooor...

We stayed in Unit 112. Condo had everything we needed, was clean and even had boogie boards and beach chairs. Check-in was a breeze. There is slight noise from the road in the bedroom, which is at the front, but it didn't other us. Location is great. Lots of turtles feeding along the shore and we also saw whales from...

This condo is fairly decent. The stairs inside and outside are frightening, especially the ones inside leading up to the master bedroom. One misstep and you are in serious danger. Entry into the unit was flawless however once inside there was a pile of beach towels laying on the stairs. The inside of the condo was fairly clean, but don't...

polynesian shore condos is an older establish place. most of the units are occupied by the owners and some are rented out. Our unit is manageable but it's very old. the view is spectacular from our balcony. most of the guests i saw are elderly folks. i didn't see anyone under 40.

We found this condo on VRBO (334027) and the owner is very responsive and sweet. She gave us lots of information that would be awesome if you're new to the island. She had the place well-stocked with beach gear and chairs for fun in the sun. And, four of us (two couples) found we had everything we needed to cook...

My wife and I have made this our Maui "home" when we travel to Hawaii. We like the relaxed, family, non-resort lifestyle. There are many repeat guests and families. If the kids are a bit too loud, simply walk up and mention that to parents or to kids...We enjoy this wonderful facility and feel that it is a great value....

We were in unit 211, north back corner, nearest the road. First the bad: Because there is no aircon, the windows need to be open to cool it down. You hear a lot of interesting conversations in the morning and evening, and road noise at night. We like it dark and private, and there are plenty of windows without shades...

We stayed in #124. Lights burnt out in living room and bedroom, no wifi for our first 4 days, and very noisy. Kids in pool until after dark, and woke to very noisy neighbors upstairs every morning. The condo felt very small for the 2 of us. The view was obstructed by the condo to the left. However, the view...

We liked this place a lot. There is access to the water but better places a short drive away. Grills, a pool, great sunsets, nice on-site manager, and our place had a full kitchen. More like a vacation rental place than a hotel. My only complaint, no smoking on site - I like a cigar while on vacation.
