My ground floor 2/1 beach themed & simply comfy condo is located on 8 TROPICAL acres in W. Maui Kahana. Conveniently located on the garden level & just steps to beach, you will quickly feel right at home. FREE WIFI, PARKING, WASHER/DRYER, pool, BBQ & tennis. Have morning coffee with a turtle or view whale watching in season across the street. Dining & shops nearby. GREAT for low-impact, less is more type of traveler. TAXES: Please read below about additional taxes owed and collected by owner.

The space

ALOHA! My 2 bedroom 1 bath GARDEN VIEW condo is on the GROUND FLOOR of a stand alone two story building. Access to uncrowded sandy beaches & sunset views are across the street. Rental includes FREE WIFI and FREE PARKING which makes visiting Maui more affordable than hotels. Appreciate the convenience of the Washer/Dryer. Refreshing deep pool, bbq & tennis courts are some of the amenities of the complex.

No air-conditioning. Past guests have said its comfortable and not necessary.
Fans and windows in every room.

-2 bedroom/ 1 bath
-641 sq feet under roof PLUS 144 sq foot private lanai.
-Clean, beach cozy & prepped for simplicity & comfort is what makes our condo affordable in a high end zipcode area.

MAXIMUM capacity: 5 persons (a child at any age is a person)

SETTING -The "POHAILANI" complex is located in Kahana between Lahaina and Kapalua in a tropical setting across from the beach. The condos are set up in twos, a ground floor unit and an upstairs unit. Units are arranged in a graceful oval surrounding a large garden area with two swimming pools, palms, other tropical trees & flowers. A bbq grill &large swimming pool is right outside the lanai. There is a sense of peace and privacy that is not present in the large resorts.

Begin your day with coffee on the lanai or a quick walk across the street to greet the turtles and fill your lungs with healing salty air. Be at peace viewing an unforgettable sunset or witness whales breaching during season at Kahana beach. Take a refreshing plunge into the deep, cool & shady pool. Appreciate the tropical landscape of Pohailani while barbecuing. Cook a homemade meal created with fresh Island produce from the local farmers markets. Salut the day with a toast of pineapple wine.
Our condo is a great place to relax & reflect over the days journeys & plan tomorrow's adventures.

This condo was located in a complex that was beautifully landscaped and maintained, as was the condo. It was within easy distance of markets for picking up last minute food items. The condo was clean and well appointed. It is a place we would happily rent again on a future trip to Maui.

Great directions to the condo, easy rules, easy to get in contact with the hostess. The pictures and description on the listing were very accurate.

We had a great stay at this condo. Fantastic location, very clean and comfortable, and a well stocked kitchen. Maile was very accommodating and flexible with our schedule. Everything was very organized and of our needs were met. We stayed at 4 different places around the island and this was the best! I would highly recommend it. The only downside was the people staying in the unit above us were a bit too noisy.

Aloha! Mahalo for your helpful comments. I am able to contact the owners of the upstairs unit which is also a rental - and they in turn contact their guests to ask them to be a little more gentle with the noise and aware of our presence. Most times this little effort has helped. Please do let me know should the noise be unbearable. I can only ask the owners to contact the guests for assistance. Cam - you were a GREAT guest! Cheers to you and your future travels!

The place had a great location to many beaches, and great snorkeling was just around the corner from house. Like stated before, there isn't AC, which we were aware of, but it still pretty uncomfortable in the house, even at night. The toilet leaked in the bathroom, the doors were a little dirty, and men's hair clippings were found around the bathroom sink. Most of the communication from the host is given through email including check-out procedures which I've never had at any other Airbnb. Guests are expected to wash their sheets and towels and empty out the trash before they leave, or may face a fine. Which seems excessive.

Response from MaileGuss:
We have had over 150 guests and each one communicated well! I was able to assist if anything went amiss during their stay. PLEASE SEE MY OTHER REVIEW .I also have 2 vacation rentals 4.5-5 star. It's sad I have to defend myself in this way but she chose to leave a comments as if I never sent her anything, The guest DID NOT READ or comprehend any rules or chose to book knowingly. This guest was terrible at communication, she did not read the details of our listing - or any of our rules and to do's. Very disrespectful to our condo. Thus I could not help them while here with the toilet (which was left to leak, and I had to replace the entire system). I called and texted DAILY to see when a good time would be to come over and if it was a handyman or plumber job. No reply til she was home on mainland. I also tell guests in emails and texts and verbally - let me know about any problems with condo while here so I can remedy including dirtiness - I cannot help after the fact. The check out list is posted on AIRBNB - thus her comment of excessive cleaning doesn't make sense. She should NOT have reserved with us if she had read the description thoroughly and didn't like it. LASTLY - and most importantly they left the FRONT DOOR key on the door window slat and we could not find it. Instead of calling me about the code - nope. They just left it there. Thus, we don't know who has it and have to change locks for security reasons. For the record - I charged the guest 30.00 for key replacement and DID not leave a review cause I did not have much to say. Aloha.

This is a great place if you want a peaceful location in a residential setting close to Ka'anapali and only a 4 minute walk to the water. For under $1000 for 5 nights for 4 people in July/August, it is very reasonably priced relative to units in a 5-10 mile radius. The host is wonderful: responsive and helpful. The unit has two bedrooms and a back Lanai looking over a green common area which includes the pool. My kids enjoyed the pool noting it was cold. The unit's interior is clean but well-worn, feeling like a beach house. It is not a luxury unit (no marble, new furniture, nor air conditioning) but then it doesn't charge $275+ per nigh, so a great option to consider. After all, it's in Maui!!

The condo was nice and it was a very short walk to a small outlet to the water. It had an assortment of supplies for us to use which was unexpected and completely appreciated. Our main concern is the neighbors on top made a tremendous amount of noise in the early AM. There must have been a couple of small children that ran around constantly after they woke up.

Response from MaileGuss:
Mahalo for staying with us and your comments. Future guests - I am able to contact the upstairs property manager (upstairs is a vacation rental as well) - and ask them to have guests be aware that we are downstairs. It has helped tremendously. I also asks guests to get a hold of me for any issues while you are on site - as I cannot help after you leave. There is a noise disclaimer in my description as well. Mahalo for your attention and we hope that you read our other comments as well.
