We had a good stay at this condo. The location is excellent. Right across the street from wonderful beaches and with easy access to every place on the island.
Something to improve upon, in our opinion, would be to include more than 2 kitchen garbage bags, additional toilet paper and tissues. For those interested, there is no coffee bean grinder.

Stayed at this condo for 8 nights in early December of 2016. Loved the place! Was a great location for us within walking distance of Kamaole Beach Park. The place was very clean and the beds super comfortable. Easily recommend it to others and if/when we return this is where we will want to stay.
One of the best things was having access to beach equipment as part of the condo. Having beach chairs, sand castle building tools, towels, etc was simply awesome. It made going to the beach SO much easier. Keyless entry was also a HUGE plus, no worrying about having to remember or losing one at the beach. Having access to free wi-fi was great too. Kept kids occupied when weather was less then stellar, and allowed us to save some roaming data on our phones.
Before our trip we called and spoke with a Jeff who was able to schedule a late checkout for us. Our plane was set to leave at 11 pm and he was kind enough to give us a checkout of 7 pm. REALLY made a huge difference to us. We were able to continue to enjoy the beach, eat dinner and have a shower before off to the airport. Thanks Jeff!
The weather during our trip was on the cooler and wet side and so we didn't use the AC all that much, but it easily kept the place cool when needed.
Neighboring units weren't always very quiet and there seemed to be smokers in units near by, but everyone we met was very nice. There is a rule book for how things are to be done while staying at the condo, nothing difficult, but we made sure to follow the rules. (Quite times, garbage disposal, don't leave things on the Lanai, etc) All really common sense stuff.
Great home away from home!

This property was the perfect place for me and my family to stay while on Maui. Centrally located in Kehei within walking distance to shops, restaurants and especially a great beach. Other than the small bathroom toilet needing a little better cleaning, it was all very clean and organized. Things were easy to find and use. It had all the necessary beach stuff too (chairs, boogie boards, towels, etc). Beds were comfortable. Was so nice to come back to an air conditioned condo after being out in the heat and humidity all day. Would definitely recommend or stay here again. Maholo!
Nice condo, enjoyed our stay

We stayed her for 12 day, my husband and I celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and we brought along our 14 year old daughter and her friend. The space was perfect for us. The condo is nicely remodeled and stocked with all of the things we needed for the beach: beach towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler. Location was perfect, right across the street from 2 wonderful beaches in case you don't want to drive anywhere, you can just grab you stuff and be in the sand in 2-3 minutes! It was also very convenient having our own kitchen and washer/dryer. If the resort scene is not your thing (it's not ours) this is the perfect condo for you. I only have 3 minor complaints, there was a lot of dust on the top of the fridge and inside the console under the TV (small lack of attention to detail by the cleaning lady), condo was not ready when we arrived at 315p for 3pm check-in, and the office management asked me to call the onsite manager when someone parked in our assigned parking space. The extra mile of calling our our behalf would have provided better customer service, but other than that, we had a wonderful experience.

Excellent location, 2 minute walk to the beach. Nice, basic rental. A/C is being fixed to cool the bedrooms, it was warm sometimes. Good supplies for the beach - towels, chairs etc. Pool area was nice and clean. Hot tub good. Limited area for any storage.. Closet was full of supplies, but that was only a minor inconvenience. Check out further away groceries stores, rather than convenient local one, to save a lot of money.
Very nice condo

We spent a week in this combo with 2 young kids (2 and 4 years old). It was very well maintained and furnished, very quiet as well. It is super close to the beach and could enjoy some sea view from the balcony. Very nice place to stay in Kehei!

We really enjoyed our stay in your clean and updated condo. Building in great location and was quiet and well maintained. We appreciated the beach gear you provided for our frequent visits to Charley Young beach, but wished some snorkelling gear was included. Also suggest you add a coffee grinder to the kitchen supplies. All and all a wonderful week in paradise. Thanks!

There were four of us staying in this wonderful condo for 8 nights, and we had a blast. The location was perfect, close to so many beaches, restaurants, and activities on the island. Quick access to the highway as well. We loved the condo - it was very clean, well appointed, and had all the amenities we could have asked for. I would definitely stay here over and over again.

This condo was as described, very clean and the best part is its location to Charlie young beach (4 minute walk). Very close to all the good restaurants
And grocery stores.
The complex is very very tidy, the maintenance crew keeps the grounds and pool area in good condition, the bbq area as well. Overall enjoyed our stay, Maui condo and car was a superb company to deal with, any and all questions were answered in a timely manner. The only minor thing that the owners should deal with is the air conditioner, it is loud and does not reach the bedrooms to cool them at night.

We were very impressed with this condo, nice upgrade and very comfortable for four people. We were celebrating a 50th birthday for one daughter and found this to be an ideal location. It was nice and clean well cared for, kitchen well equipped. We travel a lot and are very discouraged by many places we have stayed at that aren't clean and not well maintained. It was a real treat to stay here we thoroughly enjoyed the unit and our stay.

I liked the layout and appliances, but the kitchen area was very dusty, the dishes were dirty and there were tiny ants on the kitchen counter when we arrived. Plus the AC unit worked good in the common areas, but the bedroom was an oven with the door shut even with the fan on and window open. Plus squeegeeing the shower every time is ridiculous on a vacation.

When we arrived at the condo the place looked exactly like the photos. It is located in building A closest to the road, but no noise can be heard inside. The only negative comment I would say is the window air conditioner does not pump enough cold air to make any difference in the bedrooms, and unfortunately while we were there, there was a heat wave. The master bedroom ceiling fan and light didn't work, but I am not sure it would have made any difference for cooling. The appliances are all new and worked great. The BBQ's located at the pool are very clean and they are close enough that you can grill if you want to. The 2 twin beds were nice since we have 2 kids who hate sharing a bed! Charley Young beach is across the street and just a short walk to get there. There were enough beach chairs, but only 3 beach towels, so plan on picking up a fourth if required during your stay. I would recommend this place to anyone, and when we return will consider staying here again!

The owner/management team was very communicative and provided all information up front including promo codes for discounts to car rentals and activities on the island. The condo was super clean, well-stocked, and matched the description (with the exception that the second bedroom has two twin beds, not full). We found Pacific Shores to be a quiet, very well-maintained complex and loved spending time in the pool. There are lots of wonderful restaurants, beaches, and shopping within walking distance. We loved our stay here and would definitely suggest this condo to friends.

This condo was just as described on VRBO, and we were very pleased with our stay. It doesn't look fancy on the outside, but it was perfect for us. It was clean on arrival, and stocked with basic toiletries and all the dishes, utensils and cooking supplies we needed. We were so pleased to also find beach chairs, coolers and towels for our beach trips.
The condo was very nicely renovated. The bathrooms had nice fixtures and cupboards. The kitchen has a stovetop and an oven, which is very handy.
The property is very quiet at night, with only the birds chirping to you in the morning. We often saw maintenance workers keeping the gardens and grounds clean.
The pool was small and cold, but we were so close to Charley Young Beach, we didn't mind. Loved the grills at the pool!
The owner kept in contact with me, and was easy to contact as needed. Very friendly & polite.
We very much enjoyed this condo for our family of four, and would definitely recommend it to others.

The housekeeping was immaculate! Everything was clean and new looking. The remodel was well done with no imperfections. The facility is in the heart of Kihei. 300 steps to the beach! A beautiful sandy beach without rocks or coral! The place is within walking distance of everything needed. Delightful fresh dining at Sansei Seafood Restaurant located in the same complex as the grocery store, Foodland. Also great dining was the tikki torch place right next door, reasonably priced with live music on the weekends. The facility houses a nice mix of locals and tourists. Great location!
Wish We Were Still In Maui

We arrived late in the evening, were tired and a little confused with the lock. There were two access code locks, one for a key box and one being a dead bolt. We tried both and could not get them to open. We finally figured it out.
This unit was great. It was clean, comfortable and suited our needs. The location was very good, being right accross the street from Kam 1. During the day with the unit being locked up, it did warm up quite a bit. When we returned from our days activies we opened the windon and screen door and the gentle Maui breeze quickly cooled the unit down. Rarely did we have to turn on the a/c.
While staying at Pacific Shores, we learned that the complex has only been available for vacation rental for the past 3-4 years. The grounds and property are well maintained by the on site and contract staff. There is evening securuty on site as well and management do ensure all residents are following the rules, which is not a bad thing.
Only one suggestion concerning the unit we had would be to upgrade the kitchen knives. Every knife had a serrated blade and instead of cutting, we were sawing.
Great Unit, Great Location and the people we met, both full time residents and vacation guests were all very nice. Mahalo for this.

The condo was clean, well equipped and the overall complex was well maintained. Handy location to Kamole beaches, main highway and shopping.
Inaccuracies of the description - uncomfortably hot and stuffy, only one small air conditioning unit in the window of the living room which didn't do much for cooling. Air conditioner also leaks all over the lanai chairs. Bedrooms uncomfortably hot with no relief.

The difference between good and great rentals are in the small details. The TV was big but didn't have HDMI, the cuttelry was from a dollar store, we had soap for 2 days (but rented for 15 days) and the air con was very noisy and not very effective for the master bedroom
The condo itself was great, the location was great and we really enjoyed our stay.
It wouldn't take much to be a 5*.

Jeff and his team at Maui Condo and Car were a joy to work with. They gave us several options to choose from bracketing our stated budget for our last minute trip.
The condo has been completely renovated by someone that knows what renters want and need most. The bed is wonderfully comfortable, there are beach chairs and a cooler for our trips to Charlie Young/Kam I beach a short walk across the street.
The condo is spotlessly cleaned and all of the appliances worked perfectly. The condo has two HD flat screen TV's and high speed internet dedicated to the unit.
Although we were just two adults renting this unit, there is a second bedroom and plenty of living space to a family of 4. Two Thumbs WAY up for this condo, owner and MC&C.

Only negatives were air conditioner was a window unit type in living room which was loud and unable to cool the entire unit evenly...either the living room was frigid to make the bedrooms warm, or the living room was comfortable making the bed rooms hot...also the parking lot was very tight. Overall, a very nice stay.
