This was a new experience for me - my first solo trip - and Pacific Shores made it a great experience. The location was close to everything I needed and the facility was perfect for my needs. Thank you.
Amazing holiday; fantastic location

As a party of six adults it can be expensive to visit Maui from the UK but our Pacific Shores condo gave us all the flexibility and choice we needed at a great price. With four 'kids' in their 20s the condo was located just near enough to the surf schools, bars, bike hire and beach to keep them busy but also far away enough for us fifty-something's to enjoy the peace and beauty of South Maui. The car gave us extra freedom and we had a parking lot with the condo so never had to worry about parking. Condo was clean with all supplies - welcome pack was much appreciated after a long flight. Only downside was not being able to put ANYTHING on the lanai and threats of a $100 fine if you did on the windows. Slight smell of Fabreze in the room but otherwise everything was really, really good. Would definitely recommend and would certainly come back again if I get lucky enough !

This condo was located in a great location for our many outings and was withing walking distance of the beach which was amazing. My family and I loved our stay there. It did get a little warm as the one air conditioning unit was not quite enough to keep the place cool. The place was lovely with two nice bedrooms and bathrooms and a full kitchen.

We were quite satisfied with our stay at the condo. Everything was clean and organized. They left enough to run a load of dishes and a few loads of clothes. The only complaint we had was the air conditioning. It does not work well. We talked with some owners and the air conditioning is a common negative factor they have in common. We had a concern about the clothes dryer as the lint catch had a large build up of lint and I did not have a strong enough suction to take care of the problem.

Great stay at Pacific Shores! Although our unit had different/changed furniture from what was shown in the pictures it was still comfortable and accommodating for our stay. It is in an ideal location extremely close to the lovely Charley Young beach and walking distance to whatever else we needed for our stay. The rules are strict but not hard to follow and everything was functioning in the unit. Condo office was always available for questions and friendly. Will be coming back!

The condo was great. It is located in a quite peaceful Kihei near good and peaceful beaches. We enjoyed especially the provided beach gear (body boards, chairs etc.) We would definetly come back again.

This was a great size condo for three adults and a toddler, it was in a good location close to the beach and was very well stocked with things like body boards and cooler boxes for day trips. The curtains in the bedrooms could have been a bit thicker for better light blockage and although very clean elsewhere there was rubbish under the bed from previous occupants. Talking to the manager was easy and they quickly sorted it out when someone parked in our space. I would recommend a car for Kihei as it is all quite spread out.

The property was in a good location, just a short walk to the beach. Overall the condo was OK. The bedrooms were quite warm at night. The condo slept 6, we had 5 in our group. There was sufficient beds for 6 but bath towels and beach towels for only 4. There were a LOT of tiny ants in the kitchen, all over the cabinet with the range top and a good number of German cockroaches in the dish cabinets (Yuck). The broiler on the oven did not work so we had to toast English muffins one at a time. We also expected there to be a little more than just one bar of soap in each bathroom (for our 14 day stay with 5 people). Other condos we have rented on Maui in the past has sufficient shampoo and soap for our entire stay. We were happy to get a condo during the busy period on Maui but will likely not stay here again unless it's our only alternative.
Awesome location and price!

This petite 2 bed/2ba condo offered a relaxing, clean and budget-friendly home away from home. The pictures on this listing are dated so the smoked glass table, 1980's graphic chairs and overstuffed sofa are no longer there: replaced by a high sitting table with wooden chairs and a new comfortable pale green material sofa sleeper. The lights around the complex are quite bright during the night so we had to supplement the window coverings to be able to sleep and the kitchen could use a salad spinner and a rice cooker but otherwise fully stocked with appliances-the indoor laundry was a huge plus too. Tis condo can get a little stuffy while locked up for the day while traveling to Hana or Molokini but open the front door and the slider on the balcony and a refreshing breeze quickly cools the living spaces-the additional fans helped to increase airflow as well. Maui Condo and Car management was polite and quick to resolve the inoperable jacuzzi-nice an HOT by the next day! Enjoy!

Place was great.
THey provided chairs, towels, surf boards, kids toys and a cooler for the beach. Place was clean with plenty of bedding, towels and they provided laundry and dishwasher soap, which was nice to not have to buy.
Two blocks to the beach, we came home for lunch everyday it is super close. Pool area is awesome.
Two things that would have been nice to have were ice packs for the cooler on beach days and a drying rack, as you are not allowed to hang towels or anything on the balcony.
We will book there again!
Nice place. Sleep was a little rough. Review from 3 couples

PROS...The place was nice and exactly how the pictures showed. The layout worked well too. Parking stalls were close and convenient. Great for families. Kitchen was stoked w everything u could need! From zip locks to pots n pans. All appliances worked great. They even gave a complimentary laundry n dishwashing soap!
CONS... The guest beds a little rough to sleep on and the pull out couch is definitely rougher. Didn't have the greatest sleeps but we did get some shut eye after some sleeping pills. But that's what I would expect from a pull out couch. For the most part the place was clean. The floors felt like they still had residue sand or film on it. But not a big deal. I bet plenty of sand gets tracked into the apt from tourist.
All in all we had a nice vacation. Not sure if we'd stay here again but was a good price for what we got.
Cozy, but needs better A/C and a refit

We had a wonderful stay! the place is very affordable, easy to use, very clean and had a lot of general cleaning products to help us use the laundry and kitchen facilities. Other people staying there were polite, friendly and quiet. The beach is only a 5 minute walk across the street. The condo is located along the main street with lots of grocery stores, restaurants, and other shops. But, to get around the island Maui, it's good to have a car and I highly highly recommend Kihei Rent A Car:

We enjoyed our stay at Pacific Shores. The view off the lanai was wonderful. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The mattresses were also very comfortable. The kitchen was well equip. Although, might I suggest a rice cooker? The washer and drier came in plenty handy after those sandy beach days. A few things: the kitchen sink faucet was broken upon arrival (a note was left stating it was going to be fixed soon - we went grocery shopping and was fixed by the time we came back), the clock above the dining room table was dead, and the plug that the AC was initially plugged into was dead, but these issues did not affect our stay.

The condo was perfectly situated across the street from Charley Young Beach. The condo was outfitted with beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, umbrella and beach towels. Everything was clean and all the appliances were in working order (except the kitchen faucet sprayer which is finicky and the garbage disposal which was laboring a it upon use). There is nothing fancy here, just a nice clean place to stay in a good location. We look forward to our return! But I do want to give a shout-out to Maui Condo and Car. They are wonderful people to work with. Very accomdating. Truly a pleasure. Thank you!!

The 2 bedroom condo was perfect for our family. We had the options to eat in or dine out every day. We did light grocery shopping so we had a few staples; that saved us money. The pool was immaculate as was the hot tub. We enjoyed the central location and access to several nearby beaches. The condo was a great home base, it had extra beach towels, beach chairs, a small cooler, and a few essentials. There were even a few spices, coffee, container with laundry soap, and dish soap.
The person before me left us a bottle of wine and we did the same, paying it forward.
The beds were super comfortable and having two bathrooms was great for 4 people.

Our stay in Maui was great, due in part, to the comfort we enjoyed at this condo. We arrived late at night, found the unit easily and were pleased to find a very clean, comfortable condo. It had everything we needed, two bedrooms and baths, cooling fans and AC, a fully stocked kitchen, towels, beach equipment and towels and was in a great location. Charley Young beach, directly across the street, was perfect, not crowded and quiet. Restaurants were within walking distance. The condo community was very quiet the whole week we were there. I would love to come back the next time we come to Maui.
Would definitely come back!

Mahalo for a great stay at Pacific Shores! It was just the right place for just the right price at just the right location :D Mahalo for the beach toys & cooler! Just a couple of inconveniences: as you (understandably) can't hang wet towels/bathing suits on the railing, there are not enough pegs &/or hangers to dry beach things. And couldn't find an outdoor shower or hose to rinse the sand from the beach toys. Lastly, it was a bummer when we unexpectedly ran out of hot water with a kid in each shower! Mgmt never called back to check on that. It's a small water heater but we'd been out all day & the kids were just getting started. Other than these things, it was a great stay! Mahalo!!

For us, this was the perfect place to stay 18 days on Maui! Kihei is a nice and relaxed spot itself - Charley Young Beach is right across the street, and we (43, 40, 6, 3) enjoyed the Beach almost every day. Other wonderful places and beaches (Big Beach, 5 Palm Beach, Haleakala etc.) can easily be reached by car. We had BBQ pretty often at the Pool belonging to the condo-complex and really nice talks to the residents. They often gave us precious advice where to go. We will definitively come again, thank you so much for this great time.

Overall we had no problems with this place. The location was perfect. The size was really nice for a family of 4. I really liked the smooth check-in and out process and communication with Maui car and condo was fantastic! The only downside is that this building is also residential. The residents are not friendly and literally watch every move you make. I get that they don't want a bunch of tourists in and out making noise and creating havoc but we weren't those people. Luckily our friends were staying at another condo close by so we spent most of our pool time at their place. I really love the value and large space of this condo and I would rent it again

This is a spotless apartment home. When I and my family first walked thru the door I exclaimed I feel like I am just coming home from work. It is a simple newly renovated apartment. The decor is not particularly Hawaiian style as you see in many other Hawaii resorts. The grounds are pleasantly maintained and while we chose the beach, there is a gated pool area with BBQs at the back of the parking lot. There is a peekaboo view from the small lanai. This unit is not on the road but is close to the main road in Kihei so if you are a light sleeper you might want to bring some earplugs. We really liked the location. The beach is a short 2 minute walk from the condo and its a nice sandy one, Charley Young Beach. There are also lots of great restaurants within just a couple of blocks. Don't go in expecting a resort, it is an apartment full of real people that actually get to live on Maui. The unit had 2 nice boogie boards, beach towels and we left an ice chest for the next guests. It has AC but it still got a little hot at night. To close out the road noise you had to keep the windows closed but the living room AC unit just doesn't reach back to the bedrooms, adding bedroom fans would be a nice touch. It was a great price for a two bedroom, close to the beach.

We rented this condo not knowing Pacific Shores Resort. We usually atay at Maui Vista, which borders Pacific Shores. Honestly we were a little nerveous but Jeff, the reservationist, gave us all the info to where we could make weight the pros and cons...and there were no cons! We LOVED this place! The pool and BBQ area are so nice, and theres a hot tub. Our condo was very conveniently located and we had an ocean view from our deck. The condo was so clean and had everything we needed. My only suggestion would be to get more colorful artwork on the walls but all else was absolutely perfect. We are very appreciative of being able to find such a wonderful place in our budget. We 100% reccommend this condo and this rental company to anyone looking for a condo on Maui. These folks are very honest.
