A delightful Hawaiian experience
Reviewed on Saturday, February 11, 2017
We had a wonderful time at Pacific Shores unit A204. It is quiet and located steps away from the beach and restaurants (e.g. Maui Thai Bistro, Maui Fish n Chips and the wonderful and friendly Maui Gelato). We did our grocery shopping at Foodland and Hawaiian Moons. They have a very good selection of organic fine foods. It is possible to walk along the beaches to go to Wailea. The unit itself was very clean, modern and well-stocked - it had everything you could need such as washer/dryer, detergent, kitchen utensils, spices and beach gear. The kitchen appliances felt brand new. There were plenty of garbage bags to dispose of our daily rubbish. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. We had a good sleep every night. The decor was very nicely decorated - it definitely had a Hawaiian feel. We would love to come back and stay here again. Highly recommended for future travelers. Mahalo

It was a pleasure to rent from Maui Condo and Car. They were very easy to work with from beginning to end. The condo was very clean and well equipped. It was a perfect fit for our family of five. Thanks for a great experience.

We had four adults stay in the condo, and we had the experience of a lifetime. The entire trip we were excited to go back home. The property was welcoming and clean. It was nice to have two separate bedrooms and bathrooms. Having the beach a walking distance away as well as the pool, made our beach/pool days amazing. The location of all of the resturants and any stores you may need was also helpful. Our rental car needed a jump start, twice while we were there towards the end of our stay and the other residents and staff were wonderful and tried to help whenever they could. Everyone was friendly around the pool area, and we never had any problems while we were there. The only inconvience we had was how small the parking stalls were. (As this has nothing to do with the rental property, but the grounds). Everytime we would go somewhere, one person had to get in and pull out for everybody else to get in, due to having vechicles on both sides. This condo was everything we could of hoped for and more. We all hope to visit again.
Warmest thank you's!

It was a clean and nice condo with all necessaties, close to the beach all well. Has all the beach wear, umbrella, surf board, beach chair, towel. The bedrooms are smaller than they appear, the bed are soft if you prefer more support. But the management team is very nice and friendly. We asked for late checkout and got reply right away.

Great 2 bed condo. Quiet air conditioning in both bedrooms & main living a plus. Most other condos in this complex have old window shakers. End unit close to the pool. Pool area needs more umbrellas. . 1 king bed super uncomfortable, other king bed ok. Great location, close to beach, shopping& restaurants.

Location was excellent. Good beaches and restaurants within walking distance. Short walk to a beach with sea turtles! Unit was clean and perfect for two couples traveling together. The hot tub on the property was a bit on the hot side but that's our only complaint. We loved the unit!
Awesome family time on Maui,

We have stayed for a week in Pacific Shores, Apartment 204 at the beginning of August. We have found the place very clean and very functional. We had 4 beach towels to our disposal (the only minus since there were 6 of us, but it didn't really matter), beach chairs, 1 boogie board and couple of snorkels. The place is located just across one if not the best beaches in Kihei. The place is clean, modern and very secure. Swimming pool is just steps away, which was great when we wanted to go for an evening dip. There are many coffee shops, shaved ice places and restaurants within walking distance. The management was very prompt in their responses whenever we had questions. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and are already thinking about coming back.
Mahalo to the owner and the Maui Condo management.

We enjoyed our stay and the condo had provided everything you'd need. I wasn't to pleased with the dust and dirty floors. And the dryer broke down on our arrival. Repair man came to fix it, left, and it stopped working again. We had no dryer, clean towels, clean sheets for 2 weeks. It was under a warranty so had to wait several days for repair man to return. The manager did compensate us with a check. The location is great. Friendly complex. The grounds, pool area and BBQ's are well maintained. I would stay here again. I know the dryer was a misfortune and inconvenience. I would definitely have someone sweep and clean the floors.

Maui Condo and Car provided a wonderful experience for us. We loved the location, across the street from a beautiful beach (Kam I/Charlie Young Beach). Our parking spot was right outside our window, an easy walk down one flight of stairs right next to condo or an elevator a few doors down. It had convenient keyless entry which was so easy to use and we didn't have to worry about losing the key. Beautiful new hard-wood floors. New, quiet, cold ac with remote controls, a separate unit in each bedroom and one in the living room. Well furnished with a nice island feel. We loved our stay here!

I enjoyed this condo with my husband,son, daughter-in-law and grand kids 11 and 7 years old. This condo was as if a friend invited you to stay at their home in Hawaii. This condo was so inviting, everything was in perfect order, beautiful Hawaiian decorations, updated and remodeled. Everything you could wish for was furnished (small vacuum for sand, each room personal air conditioning ect.). The condo was better than the property
description. It was so easy to completely relax and enjoy our time together as as family. We were literally steps away from our favorite beach,(Charley Young) and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The condo was furnished with beach towels. chairs, umbrella and sand toys. Things that would have been difficult to pack from home. We found the kitchen to be perfectly stocked with utensils plus coffee maker, blender ect. We enjoyed all the informative Hawaiian
books. We loved the wall art. We loved
listening to the birds in the morning while
drinking our morning coffee on the lanai. We
can't say enough wonderful things about this
condo. This made our much look forward to
vacation extra special. Even though we have been home for less than one week we still all talk about this incredible home away from home. Would not have changed one thing about this condo. I looked for weeks at different vacation sites and this condo is by far the best deal ever. Can't wait for our next visit and stay at this condo.
Not a bad little condo

Maui Car and Condo seem to run things pretty professionally, from initial contact to accessing the property. We had no issues, checking in wasn't even necessary as they email you the passcode to the lock - which is very convenient by the way - not having a door key to deal with on a beach vacation with multiple people.
It gets a little hot if you don't keep the a/c on all the time, as it's not the most powerful unit. The bedrooms will heat up at night so you must leave the doors open, which somewhat restricts privacy. I understand they will be putting another unit in the master bedroom, which will help. I stayed in the master room which has a pretty firm, mediocre quality king size bed. It wasn't terrible, but neither luxurious. It was nice coming home to my nice bed. The other room also has a king, which seemed softer. I was initially concerned about noise from outside the unit, but the windows seem to be double glass, because they really cut out any noises, so that's a bonus. The pullout couch was good as far as they go - no uncomfortably bar in the middle. Overall, the place is pretty modern and clean. I can recommend it for up to 4 people if they don't need a lot of personal space while at the base. I really appreciated how they remembered and respected my accommodation request for no chemical fragrances. They took the trouble to use non scented cleaning products, which was nice, and very important for allergy sufferers like myself. The location is pretty good, with a great little beach across the street about 3 minutes walking. The parking stalls are a little tight, especially if your rental is an SUV.. we had about an inch on either side. Overall I can endorse this condo and especially Maui Condo and Car.
good location to the beach!

This was our first time using HomeAway and we had a very pleasant vacation. The beach was less than a 5 min. walk, the house had a very nice Hawaiian vibe, and had all the amenities that we needed. The entire trip was so smooth and we loved it. The only issue we had, but it wasn't a big deal was the AC unit. Even with the ceiling fans running at night it was just a little too hot. But other than that we loved the place and when back in Maui we will definitely consider this place again. Mahalo Nui Loa!

We stayed in this condo for 14 days and loved every minute of it. The condo was very clean and well kept. We had no trouble getting into the condo and all the rules were clearly stated. There were plenty of extras in the condo for us to use, such as beach towels, coolers, sand toys, snorkels, umbrella, etc. We were able to do laundry while we were there multiple times which was fantastic. We were close to many restaurants and shopping areas as well as within walking distance of several beaches. We were able to walk every evening for supper and drinks which was a big deal for us. This condo was plenty big for four adults and provided everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. We will be back to stay here again!

This is a very cute condo. Has everything you would need to vacation at the beach in Maui. Great location, walking distance to the beach and shopping centers. It's a home away from home. This unit has a window air conditioner, which makes it a little tough to keep the condo cool during the day. Our overall experience with this condo is an A++++. we highly recommend it!
Affordable unit at a very good location

Overall very satisfied with my stay. Kihei is a very good location -- close to the beach and many restaurants. Every place you want to visit in Maui is within 1-2 hours of driving.
The unit is well equipped (kitchenware, beach-related stuff) so you do not need to bring much. The only drawback is that there is only one window A/C unit in the living room, and there is no A/C in the bedrooms, so it can get a bit hot at night during sleep.
Lovely in Every Way!

Pacific Shores A-204
Of our several visits to Maui in the past, this was our first time staying in a condo. Family all agreed that we were pleasantly surprised. Not sure what our expectations were, but A-204 exceeded them. Well appointed and comfortable. New appliances, utensils and dishware. Linens were newer and nice - and above all: clean! Full-size Samsung washer/dryer - even had the laundry soap and dryer sheets. Master bath is nicely done with a new large shower complete with stone floor.
The hide-away sofa sleeper was very comfortable as well. Found that the kids fought over who got to sleep on it.
At first the little lanai didn't seem that appealing since it is relatively small and looks out onto the parking lot. However, we found ourselves sitting out there in the morning to enjoy coffee and the peek-a-boo view of the ocean, and up-country in the opposite direction. Even though it opens to the parking lot, there is generally not a lot of traffic. Occasionally one of the other residents would pass by below
The master bedroom window opens to the corridor leading to the other units. While the blind on the window provides sufficient privacy, it does a poor job blocking the light that comes in from the stairway and corridor making it difficult to sleep. Also, if you wish to sleep in, the morning light might wake you as well. Suggest putting a room darkening blind up (simple fix)

This property was described as a condo which gives the impression it is large or two storey however it is more the size of a unit, much smaller than a condo. Very happy with the condition of the unit, very modern kitchen and appliances.
