Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Pool / Spa
Great location. Needs maintenance.
Great location. Comfy beds and plenty of linens. Nice decorations and furniture TV could be a few sizes bigger☺
Condo is run down and needs some TLC. Like paint, carpet shampoo, fix ceiling fans, repair leaking kitchen faucet, repair stove burner tray so pans sit level, repair patio slider screen doors, get rid of rusty fridge. That would be a good start. I own a VRBO myself and the condition of this unit would not be acceptable to me.

good value for the cost
I stayed in this unit for 1 week, and the only downsides were that there was no air conditioner (at least I didn't find one) and the patio was a bit small. But for the price, it was a GREAT location and value (on the beach!) and the woman who checked me in was a blast! I'd stay there again, though I might spring for the extra cost and a more direct ocean view.
Mahalo for being our guest and sharing with us about your time at the property. The Nalu is in such a great location and this unit is a wonderful value. None of the units at this property offer AC, but those trade winds helped keep the place cool I'm sure. We look forward to welcoming you back to the island!

We rented 2 units in this resort. The resort itself was very clean and the maintenance guy was very professional and courteous. As for the unit... My adult children and mother in law stayed in this unit as my wife, son and I stayed in another one. This unit definitely has some dated finishes that could be upgraded to make it more desirable. The location and views make it not as big of a deal for ocean front views of the sunset etc. The staff that checked us in were also wonderful to work with. Neither units we rented had AC, was not a big deal in January.
Aloha and Mahalo for taking the time to post a review. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your time on the island and hope to host you again in the future. This unit is a great value to place you ocean front in popular South Maui, and while none of the units at Kamaole Nalu offer AC, the ceiling fans and trade winds do help keep you comfortable.

We stayed at this dump for 2 weeks. The photos on the Web site must have been taken 30 years ago, because this place CANNOT have been upgraded since then. The furniture, carpet, appliances, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. are functional but completely run down and in poor shape. More importantly, the entire place was filthy. Where do I start? The master bedroom: the ceiling and ceiling fan were coated with a 1/4- to 1/2-inch layer of dust, none of the screens in this air-conditioning-less unit fit properly in the windows, the indoor/outdoor carpet hasn't been steam cleaned in many years, and the mattress had bedbugs. We stripped the filth-stained comforter from the bed before we would sleep in the bed. The master bathroom: run down and filthy with tens of tiny gnats--no doubt allowed in by the poorly fitting screens. The kitchen: full of tiny gnats and filthy. The guest bedroom and bathroom: more run down and just as filthy as the master bedroom and bathrooms. The old plastic bathroom shower curtain should have been replaced 10 years ago. On top of all of this, the noise levels from the street are unbelievably high--forget about sleeping past 4:20 a.m. due to the street noise. All of the parking spaces are incredibly narrow. The bottom line: you could not pay us to stay in this dump again. Mahalo.
Aloha and thank you for leaving a review and we are passing along your comments to the homeowner. We are saddened to hear of your experience regarding the cleaning and appreciate that you reported it immediately. It’s unfortunate that our repeated attempts to contact you during your stay to coordinate and address these issues were not fruitful. The carpets were cleaned one guest prior to your arrival and the rest of the unit was cleaned by our in house housekeeping team and inspected by one of our greeters the day of your arrival. As well, the mattresses were professionally inspected and confirmed to be bedbug free. We feel that this is a fantastic value for a two bedroom two bath oceanfront in prime south Kihei and hope to have the opportunity to meet your expectations another time.
