Maui vacation 2016
Reviewed on Friday, November 18, 2016
We had a lovely time in Kihei and also exploring the rest of the island. The location of this condo was very central and we walked a lot. Close to Charley Young and Kamaole beaches, shopping and a variety of restaurants. The barbecues at the pool were great.
There were four adults in our group and we would have liked more patio chairs to use on the lanai.
We appreciated the provision of dishwasher and laundry soap but a couple more of each as well as T.P. would have been nice. The property manager was very helpful and responded very quickly to any of our concerns, delivering a brand new beach umbrella when we noticed the one provided was broken for example.
We would have loved beachfront but this was close!

They thought of a lot of little things. Soap for dishwasher and washing machine. Beach towels and chairs. The pull out bed was not functioning properly, the fan in the master bedroom did not work and we found a huge cockroach in the master bed room. The Internet did not work initially. Had to call to reboot.

This was our second time booking A-105. Just as pleased with this unit the second time around. LOVE this location. So close to the beach and pool, and ground floor is very convenient. The kitchen was well appointed but could use a few more cooking utensils. The only real complaint that we had was that the tubs wouldn't plug for a bath. Last time we stayed, one tub didn't plug, this time it was both. No problem though, the showers worked great. We will definietly book this unit again!

The condo was clean, spacious and easy to find. The condo complex has incredibly good recycling bins. Condo is very close to the beach and within walking distance of many excellent restaurants and coffee shops (Fred's, Lava Java, Fat Daddy's BBQ, Kehei Cafe, Cinnamon Roll Place...). I appreciated having a designated parking spot.

We enjoyed a wonderful week together as a family as we gathered in Hawaii and had booked 4 condo units for our 4 households
10 days in Maui
Reviewed on Friday, September 11, 2015
I am a single Dad and I came to Maui with 4 kids. The unit had enough space for all of us and was a stones throw from the beach. The pool and BBQ facilities were fantastic. There is now a couch with a fold out bed which I found rather comfortable even though I am a 215 pound man. The kids loved it too. The A/C was a nice edition especially during our visit since the tradewinds were not blowing at all and it was a whopping 95F outside. The kitchen was great had everything you need and more. TIP: Take your favorite spices from home in little baggies. Saves a ton of hassle and $$ when wanting to cook a nice dish.
We had a great time during our stay on Maui and it was a pleasure to come home here. We'd do it again.
Great Place in Kihei

Our family enjoyed staying here a lot. It is perfectly located within walking distance to the town center of Kihei (FUN!!) and to the beach. Being on the ground floor was great and it is right across the parking lot from the pool and the BBQs (which we used several times and it was great). The unit is very cute, extremely clean and had everything we needed, including beach gear. Definitely recommend!
Excellent choice, very nice condo!

Very good position, close to beach, in walking distance (10 - 15 mins) to shops and restaurants. It was great that the condo came with chairs, towels and cooler for the beach. There were 2 couples and we had plenty of room and a bathroom each. This condo was well equipped with everything you need.
Kihei is a great position to start exploring Maui.

Staff very friendly and helpful. I requested bathtub mats and they were in when we returned later in the day. It was great having a handicap parking stall in front of the condo and ground floor entry, as my husband and sister-in-law are disable. But the can opener needs to be replaced!

Charming, Clean, Convenient

The unit was tastefully decorated, clean, and bright. Not much in the way of condiments (like coffee filters) and there were no wine glasses. Knives were really dull. Beds and furniture were very nice and the bathrooms were very nice with beautifully painted ceramic tile. The parking was convenient and appreciated the assigned space. Down side to this convenience is the property grounds were mostly parking space with little grass, trees or flowers. The lanai is very close to the walkway so not too private. Enjoyed the residents who live year around and meeting many others like ourselves from 'away'. Pool and BBQ grills were clean and very convenient to our unit.
Great Room for sure !

It was decorated modern, and very clean... an ensuite in one bedroom and walk-in closet... had a blw dryer and laundry soap and kitchen was loaded as well... the shampoo and soap in the bathrooms were a perfect touch, considering we came late and brought none of those things with us !! beach was right across the street, and 2 great breakfast places down the street, 5 min walk..

Newly renovated, very clean and in a great location. Loved that the parking stall was right outside the lanai, and the pool was a few steps across the parking lot. Only few small complaints: the bathtub plugs wouldn't work, so the tubs couldn't fill with water. And, there was some miscommunication with Maui Condo and Car and the cleaning staff. Came back to the condo at night just as a cleaning lady was about to enter. She said she was told we had left already and was going to clean the condo (at night?). We weren't scheduled to check out until the next day. Otherwise had a great stay. Would definitely rent this unit again!

Great place to stay for access to Kehei and the beaches. The grounds of this complex aren't as nice as some of the others but if you spend most of your time touring or beach walking it doesn't matter. The lanai in the unit we rented wasn't really much. It was at ground level with a parking lot view... otherwise everything was in great condition and reasonably priced for Kehei.

We were quite happy at A105. The place was clean and well set up. Internet worked fine if a little slow. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was well appointed. The only thing we were lacking were spices. Since we were dining out of food carts and grocery stores, we were looking for some simple salt-and-pepper level condiments. It might be nice to mention that there is NO food of any kind there, or better, add a few general spices and packets like soy sauce and hot sauce to the condiment cupboard. We'll be back.

The property unit was nice, but I found a waxy type stuff on the back side of the shower curtains,Lots of dust bunnies under the beds, the phone did not work, if needed for use of 911.some kind of error because of net work usage. lack of kitchen pots and pans for cooking ( one skillet, one small one also , small pans for cooking . The dishes were all metal rimed so they could not be used to heat stuff in the microwave, ( fire danger) the bathroom fan was noisy and quit on the weekend, the light in the shower area would not work be cause of the fan.I reported it to maui condo and and car, the person was very professional and said there would be a maintenance person on site monday if i wanted it repaired. I told them we could manage until we left. also the key lock box fell off when we opened it the first time. It really to be replace with the new type of keyless lock box. The parking spaces need to be repainted so the can be seen at night !!. and guest parking closer to the middle of the lot for guest in the pool area. In all we really liked the mood lighting in the rooms at night.

This condo was in a perfect location; so close to shops, beach, restaurants, etc. Very clean and nice upgrades. We loved being across the street from the beach and having a pool and Jacuzzi so close to the unit. Easy access through the sliding glass door was also a plus. We all enjoyed ourselves. The TV remote did not work, but no biggie. I could only think of 2 downsides; sofa is not very comfortable and the living room could use more seating. Some small ants, but it never became a problem. Also, really appreciated Maui Condo and Car for providing the air mattress! Plus, so nice to have many beach accessories. Note: there should be some signage to remind people to clean out the dryer's lint trap and where to find it. Otherwise, a terrific trip!

We arrived late to Maui and was tired and jet lagged. Finding, entering and navigatng around the unit was easy. They provided a starter kit, which meant no need to go grocery shopping. Thanks for that, it really helped.
The Unit was fantastic, clean and very well managed. They provided us with everything we needed to have a great vacation.
The only thing I would change is they ask us to throw away all the food, what we should do is find a way to donate the food to someone that needs it.
Food is very expensive so I am sure you will find someone that will take away food you would throw out anyways.
Overall a perfect vacation, we will be back as soon as possible.
Great location, very clean! Would stay again for sure.

We've been coming to Maui and staying in Kihei for 7 or 8 years, but this was our first time staying at Pacific Shores. We LOVED the condo and the complex. The complex is in a great location and was very quiet and well maintained. We loved the walkout feature of A-105. The condo is well appointed (although, it could use a new sofa), a good size and had very comfortable beds. It felt like a new home away from home for us and we would definitely stay here again! Maui Condo & Car were very helpful, efficient and easy to deal with.

We stayed for a long weekend and found this unit to be well equipped and completely meet our needs. Two items of note:
It is situated at a main footpath, so people entering the complex do walk right by the glass slider pretty regularly and can see in if the curtains are open. This wasn't really a problem for us, but others might not like the foot traffic.
The bed in the second bedroom has a horrendous squeak that makes it difficult to get in/out of bed without disturbing your roommate.

The check-in procedure was easy with the lock box, the parking stall was right in front of the unit, and the pool was just 2 steps away. We would definitely go back - no complaints! Just one suggestion: bring your own coffee cups because they only have itty bitty fine china coffee cups - more like tea cups :)

This was a perfect little place for our 7-night stay in Kihei. The location was great; a walkable distance to the action (as little as there is), but far enough off the beaten path that it's quiet and removed from the busy-ness of the main road. I liked that the unit was on the ground floor as it provided more open space (ie, the lanai) to hang out in. The neighbors were also super friendly. The only thing I would say could be better is that the unit needed more of a comfort/human touch - there were no rugs on the tile floor, no pillows on the couch, no cute knick-knacks on the shelves, etc. It was clear it was managed by a rental company, so the place wasn't particularly homey. Maintenance guys also showed up VERY promptly at check out time and weren't particularly friendly since we were running a couple minutes behind (a little irksome since we had been there a week and had spent $1K+ renting the place... take a deep breathe and give us a couple minutes, please). But aside from that, this place was great, and a solid value. 4 stars out of 5.

Our Maui 2012 vacation

We stayed at this location for 21 days. We loved the location! Most people we met that lived at this complex were very nice. The night security guard was great. He helped us out with an extra parking stall for 24 hours when the kids rented mopeds.
We found once the kids came over that the condo was cramped for 5. Not enough hooks for hanging wet towels/bathing suits. Air conditioner leaked inside so we used it very sparingly. All ceiling fans were noisy and couldn't be used on full or they started rocking and we thought they were coming down.
I was sweeping the floor and barely touched the end table and a leg came off. The couch was a futon and does fold down into a bed albeit not comfortable. I tried calling your office to advise you of this but there was no answer. We didn't use the queen air mattress because of this.
Problem with small ants but not a biggy although we were told they had just sprayed for them. I do think the ants are nesting in the corner of this particular lanai so you may want to check on this.
A huge centipede managed to find its way inside even though they had just sprayed for them. I think it hitched a ride in on a towel from the pool area.
I would suggest owners purchase dishes that can be used in the microwave as their plates are decorated with gold (?) or some kind of metal that cannot be used in the microwave. Only 3 small plates could be used here or the casserole dishes. Also another pot would be good. Only has one large and one small one.
We purchased an umbrella for the beach and left it as they didn't have one but they had everything else you needed to enjoy your day on the beach.
My husband and I would stay here again if the ceiling fans could be fixed. For us it was just right but too small for 3 adult kids (18, 21 & 22).
