An overall satisfactory stay.
This beautiful, CLEAN, furnished, well-stocked, and comfortable condo was just what I needed for my Maui trip. It was a narrow little place suitable for a couple or small family. It had a lovely bedroom with a stylish functioning bathroom and comfortable bed with clean sheets and comforter. The living room had a good looking and sturdy murphy bed if needed, a comfortable stylish couch with a couple chairs. All smooth shiny tile. The kitchen was clean, functional, very well-stocked with cookware and cooking ingredients and condiments probably left by previous tenants, and the fridge was modern with working and spacious freezer. One other big plus of this place was it's building's- (the most requested building of the complex) convenience to the private code-access gate. It was directly across from K beach park III, and a few blocks walk from the nearest restaurant. I also really liked the complex' sense of security, like having a key-pad operated gate for cars and people via an access code, and the door the condo required keyless code which was given to me by the managers just before I arrived there. I loved this new method of condo access as it gave me less to worry about like holding and possibly losing a key. Now the minus: the lanai was decent and clean, but the other people around can be a problem. The lanais were built so if you walk to the railing you can see everyone around you and they can see you from their lanais, like a big community setting. Some may not mind it, others like me value privacy more and did not care for such an intrusive, boxed-in feeling. You are a few feet from the water fountains that run loudly from 9 AM - 9 PM, which may be good to blanket some of the noise of people nearby, but you'll have to stand the noise from the early mornings through the evenings. Fortunately most people seem to respect the quiet hours of 10 PM - 8 AM. Another unfortunate item about the condwas the treeline from the K beach Park was BLOCKING the famous Maui water view. No sunset and no west side view much. Just a view of the courtyard, the northern complexes and the road. Overall, this was a good place for me and I may consider staying at KS again, but I would look at other places in Kihei, perhaps something on the top floors to avoid that uncomfortable boxed-in feeling. Also, big props to Jim & Sandy for impressively managing and maintaining a classy stylish Maui condo. You helped make my visit to Maui a good one.
