Great view

         
Review by Ronnie N
Everything was perfect with this studio. Everything you needed and the washer and dryer was a nice bonus. Watched the turtles all day, every day and of course the sunsets too. Will use Chase n Rainbows again in the future, very easy and simple. Please keep the rates low so regular people like us can afford ocean front in Maui.

Great oceanfront condo at an even greater price.

         
Review by Kevin Purcell
We saw whales from the lanai 5 minutes after arriving and sea turtles are an everyday occur acne just below at the sea wall. Location is great with many restaurants and grocery stores close by. Also the local Farmers Market is less than 2 miles away and open 3 days a week. Parking is also included in the price.

If you love to watch turtles all day, this is the spot

         
Review by Needed some island time
Property is very quiet...nothing like a resort with beautiful amenities and tons of people running about. You feel like you're living amongst locals, because you are! Sea wall was only about 20 feet away so the sound of the ocean is constant and there are several turtles right in the rocks all day long. (just walk down to the grassy area and sit on the wall) The actual unit is good. The bed is very comfortable. Small washer and dryer that worked great. Shower that delivers hot water quickly. Now the bad: We've stayed in lots of condos in Maui and this one was pretty poorly stocked. The beach chairs were ripped. Kitchen was the most sparse of anywhere we've been. Knives were horrible, nothing extra like foil or ziplock bags, etc. We even had to go buy a spatula/flipper to turn our burgers. (I know they're not required to have this stuff. Just letting people know what to expect.) The Internet was fussy. We had to keep trying to reset and eventually just tapped into another unit that was unsecured. The screen and sliding door were in need of repair. We resorted to just opening and closing once a day because it was such a pain. The lanai is so close to the water. Relaxing to sit out there and drink your coffee in the morning but the unit is old, thus the wood railings make it impossible to see well without standing up to see over. Several other units have patio sets that are bar height which enables you to see over the railing. We reported all these things to prop mgr, so if you go they should be fixed. Bottom line, don't stay here if you want anything fancy. Even the pool is across the street and mediocre at best. But, if you want quiet, relaxing, clean and to just feel like you're blending in with the local scene for an affordable price...this is the place for you!

Review by Amy & Felix

Loved it! Very nice. would refer a friend here definetely. great location too, close to everything

Great place but there were bugs!

         
Review by Terri G
We were really happy with this condo and the nearness of the ocean, however there were lots of tiny little ants and another kind of bug in it. We arrived to a note on the door saying they were having a pest inspection on the upcoming Wednesday so I called the Chasing Rainbows maintenance to let them know. I also had to put any food that we had in the refrigerator. They assured me they would let the pest control know to spray. It didn't make any difference after the treatment. The ants were getting on my open soda can after I set it on the nightstand and I couldn't leave anything out. I asked maintenance about it and they said it was common. I don't agree because this is the 4th time in 5 years we have been to Maui and we have never had to endure ants. Our friends were staying in another condo about 300 feet from ours and they had no bugs. I can handle having ants and I know it can happen but it sure made me feel creepy crawly the whole time because sometimes I found them crawling on my arms or legs. Other than that the condo was very nice and clean and we loved the location. I never got a response back from Chasing Rainbows though about the pest issue, so either they don't care or don't want to deal with it.

Manager Response:
Aloha and mahalo for you the time you took to write and post this review. We are very sorry that you had an ant intrusion during your stay. According to our records when you phoned to report the ants, it was confirmed that the resort was in the process of providing the schedule pest control service at the resort that day. Our maintenance team took the extra step to phone the AOAO office to make sure that special attention was given to this particular condo. We are sorry you felt our handling of this situation was "unresponsive".Unfortunately because this is a tropical island pests are a common occurrence which is why we specifically mention it in our rental agreement:Guest also understands that Hawaii is located in a tropical climate, and that insects, rodents and lizards flourish in this environment. Although Manager will use its best efforts to hold to a minimum your interaction with these pests during your stay, Guest understands that any contact by Guest with such a pest within or outside the unit does not constitute a breach of this Agreement or give Guest any right to any refund or rental adjustment

Great location, interior space and balcony!

         
Review by Mary H.
We appreciated how organized everything was from the preparation emails, beach towel rentals to having the basics stocked up and waiting for us. The space itself was decorated nicely and what we had in mind when looking for a tropical Hawaiian getaway. We loved that there was a kitchen and laundry facilities inside - we made use of it by cooking our breakfasts and most dinners and feeling like we were lucky to "live" in the islands for a week. The windows at both the front and back of the unit allowed for the breeze to come in so we didn't even need to use the a/C on our trip. It was also nice to have the DVD player since the RedBox rental was around the corner at the gas station - another convenience! My only confusion was that we couldn't find the pool, although it was referenced in the welcome binder. It's okay because we were able to find great beaches within walking distance!

Majestic!

         
Review by Tarra Rose
Wonderful place to stay and take in beautiful mornings and evenings. They are not lying when they say you can see the sea turtles from your lanai. This is a great place to stay for as long as possible! I do recommend they invest in a mouse/rat proof screen because we had some problems with rodents chewing through the screens to get into the condo (that was pretty horrific!) Other than than the unwelcome guests, the condo is spectacular for the price!

Aloha and Mahalo for the time you took to post and write this review.Here in an excerpt from our Rental Contract: Guest understands that Hawaii is located in a tropical climate, and that insects, rodents and lizards flourish in this environment.

We can confirm that the screens including the lanai screens were recently replaced and/or serviced. We look forward to seeing you in Maui again soon.

Our First Hawaii Stay

         
Review by Ryan & Suzette
This was our first Hawaii vacation and I'm so glad we found this condo and it was recommended to us. The location was perfect, the view was incredible and the accommodations so comfortable. The breeze coming through the condo was so great, we didn't even need the air conditioner. The kitchen was just perfect for the two of us and it had everything we needed to make meals. The condo was decorated nicely and everything was very clean. We were able to watch sea turtles off the balcony on the edge of the ocean every day, what an experience. We will definitely be back!

Review by David and Cindy
This was our first time in Maui and staying Here made it perfect!! We really enjoyed the turtles and the ocean right at the door!! Very quiet place to stay. Great little kitchen, very clean

The Pacific Ocean is very relaxing

         
Review by G & D
The room was exactly as illustrated on site, very welcoming with updated decor. The location is walking distance to 7 different places to dine. Our favorite was Dollies Pub & Cafe. A convenience store and gas station is in the same area. Also a coffee shop is nearby to enjoy a latte or smoothie. Lahaina is only a 10 minute drive. No sandy beach facing the ocean, it is rocky with a sea wall. Unfortunately repairs were being done to the sea wall which blocked off the entire frontage of the building. No where to lounge outside, you have to find a beach.

great value

         
Review by srb
This is the second time i've used chasenrainbows. I find their website to be very good. You can check availability and rates without having to leave any personal information so somebody can "get back to you." As far as the property itself, we found it a fantastic value. You can't get any closer to the water and it's an end unit, so it's quiet. Clean and comfortable with a full functioning kitchen and in unit washer and dryer. Close to stores and restaurants. I liked best being able to sit on our lanai and see the sea turtles feeding in the reef with Molokai and Lanai in the background. Great for couples. If you're bringing the kids, this may not be the place for you as you'll all be sleeping in the same room. It was just my wife and I and for us, it was perfect. The only negative is that the gas grill could use a little work. If we return to Maui, we'll definitely come back here. I've paid far more to stay at the Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn.

Loved every minute

         
Review by Bekki
I stepped into this unit and about wept with joy. So welcoming and bright...and being spitting distance from the ocean was magical. It was easy to prepare meals and just 'be' in that space. I had fun venturing out on the bus (I didn't have to rent a car all week!); while Pohailani Maui is a little off the beaten path from the more busy areas of Lahaina, it was a nice balance of access and seclusion. Bed was comfy, bathroom was awesome, everything was clean and bright and not cheesy. ­čÖéThere are several things I would suggested offering/adding: 1) a cutting board 2) a colander 3) a notebook/guidebook for how to get around by bus, how far to get to the airport for a rental car, how many minutes/miles to Lahaina, where the grocery store is, etc. Luckily I had my computer to look things up, but it would be great to offer guests a customized resource guide for that unit/complex. I would have appreciated knowing how/where to catch a cab when the bus stopped running, how much the cab fare might be, etc. Also, how to get to the nearest beach. Just a thought.This trip to Hawaii - my first ever - was amazing. I was so grateful for the experience and for having such an incredible place to call home for that week. Wonderful.
