About Gregg Steuart
Gregg and Connie have been coming to Maui Kamaole since 1993, visiting and always hoping to eventually owning a condo in the complex. They held out hoping a unit would become available in the Jassmine (J) complex, which is centrally located in the complex with ocean views, but up high enough on the hill to enjoy wonderful ocean breezes and peaceful serentity. Although we’ve traveled all over, we still find the beauty and magic of Maui unparalleled. Maui is both adventure and sanctuary, exotic yet relaxing, exciting yet peaceful, magical and enduring. J205 is very special and we invite all our guests to share it with us and be our attentive partners in keeping J205 nice and comfortable and a gift for all who stay here.
Gregg Steuart purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Gregg Steuart chose Kihei
Maui Kamaole is indisputably the most beautiful property in South Kihei with wonderfully kept sweeping lawns, surrounded by lovely tropical setting (no less than 70 species of plants). It is low density, low rise, and uncrowded; a third of the property is lived in year-long by owners, a third lived in partially by owners, and only a third of it is rented out exclusively year long; the owners who live there all year-round keep a dedicated eye on things and everyone is committed to keeping up the quality of the complex. It is also close to the boat ramp for any fun excursion, within walking distance to some of the best beaches in South Maui for swimming, snorkeling, as well as a wide variety of restaurants and shops and also great walks and jogging and world class golfing to the immediate south in Wailea. It is simply where we love to live ourselves ....
What makes this Condo unique
There are many benefits to staying at J205 for our guests, all of which do not incur a premium in rate and all of which we also love and enjoy ourselves when we are at the condo: - unquestionable value in having an ocean view from your own lanai - unquestionable value in having a spacious condo (only 25% of all two bedroom condos at Maui Kamaole are of this size or larger) - unquestionable value in having a much newer condo - unquestionable value in dealing with owners who care about their guests and care about refreshing and upgrading the condo based on the needs and comforts of the guests, so the condo is always kept nice (this can easily be ascertained by reading through the complete set of Guest Comments) - unquestionable value in staying at a better-managed condo, with a team of the best people on island who help to make your stay a great one - unquestionable value for staying at the nicest and one of the very few low-density complexes in South Maui with manicured lawns and lush tropical gardens (no less than 70 species of plants) and pools and Jacuzzis, grills, and a tennis court - unquestionable value in the location and easy access to some of the best beaches, boat ramp for excursions, shopping, dinning, jogging, walking, golfing, entertainment, and more

We really enjoyed our stay at Gregg’s place. The place is very clean and is equipped with everything that we need. There was a rice cooker and a blender which we used daily. The place is very quiet and the beds are so comfortable! There are plenty of beach chairs, umbrella, toys that provided hours of fun at the beach. Gregg was very responsive and recommended great place for us to visit. We would stay here again!
Gregg and Connie's Kihei condo is by the far the best property on vrbo we have ever rented and we rent several places every year, so that says A LOT. It is in a great location and is so incredibly well stocked that there wasn't a single thing we "wished we had" that we couldn't find already provided. We really appreciated the coolers and ice-packs all ready to go on our first beach day as well as all the nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrellas. We also really appeciated all the information that was emailed to us the week of our trip and how easy everything was. Again, there wasn't a single question we had that wasn't already answered in the welcome letter we received.
The only thing we would change if we could was the ability to have the ceiling fans run at the same time as the air conditioner. We thought it was really smart and efficient to have the air conditioners on timers and wired so that they shut off it the doors were open. But we don't understand why the ceiling fans were also wired so that they could not be running at the same time as the air conditioners. It would have been nice if the ceiling fans and air conditioning could run simultaneously so that at night when the air conditioners in the bedrooms shut off automatically, there could still be air flow from the ceiling fans. It was a very hot week for Maui the week we were there and we would have liked to have been able to have the air conditioner run for a few hours while we fell asleep and not had to choose between that and the ceiling fans.
But that was the only downside to the place amongst SO MANY upsides. Seriously, you won't be sorry if you choose this property!
Thank you Gregg for letting us stay in your amazing condo. The condo itself is very quiet, you can not here the street, but you can see the ocean from lunai. We had all our meals there. The view is very good. The condo is very well equipped, you can find everything you can think of and even more :). Rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Aircondition we were using during the day in the room. Worked well. The condo was clean as we've arrived.
We 'very found 4 turtles on the beach ,which is 5 min walk from the condo. We were swimming and snorkeling there. Gregg is an amazing host. Hope to stay at your condo next time when we are in Maui.

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids) had a great stay at J205!
The condo had everything we needed and more. The location of the complex was excellent, walking distance to beaches and shops and restaurants. And the unit itself was a great location within the complex, quiet and close to the upper pool (which was definitely the nicer pool). We enjoyed the large lanai that had room for all of us to enjoy a meal together.
Gregg was an excellent host and provided us with helpful information prior to our arrival.
We will definitely be back and will stay in J205 again!
2 weeks in paradise
Gregg was awesome to deal with. Perfect communication and the unit was as pictured and as described. I Have stayed at this condo complex 5 times previous and I loved the Jasmine (J) buildings best. The view from J205 was perfect out to the gardens (immaculate) and the Ocean in distance and west Maui to the right... and the sunsets off the deck... PERFECT!!!! will be staying in this unit again for sure.
Outstanding Roomy Maui Condo
We loved our stay at the Maui Kaumole. It was exactly what we hoped for, a two bedroom suite with the privacy of our own bathroom. Both rooms were large with lots of space for our clothes and personal items. This condo is ideal for two couples traveling together. It was not only clean, but has tasteful updated decor. The amenities are what make this place top notch; available snorkels, masks, beach towels, beach bags, nice beach chairs, boogie boards, ice chest, hats and more. While went out at night we also cooked a couple meals in. The available pans are excellent if you enjoy cooking and we loved sitting on the lanai watching the sunset 🌅�. Landscaping at this condo is so beautiful, I would put it all the top based on other condos visible from the street. The birds would greet us each morning with their songs. We paid for an awesome trip snorkeling trip to Lanai, but the snorkeling in front of the condo was just as good, plus a bonus we swam with turtles 🐢� 2x. In the evenings, we would hot tub, so fun. The pool is gorgeous. I am officially hooked on Kihei for it’s relaxed beach style town, but I loved the option to drive Lahaina & Kaanapali for excitement. There are numerous beaches within 10 miles of the condo, our favorite being Big Beach. The whales were really active and were almost always visible from the shore. I give this place a superior recommendation. Gregg the owner is really prompt with responses and can answer any questions. We will stay again the next time we visit Maui!
