Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
Kindly consider our beautiful, spacious ocean-view Maui Kamaole condo, located on the sunny side of the island. We fell in love with Maui the first time we visited and we have been going back often ever since.
Our gorgeous, air-conditioned condo is one of only six 1244 square-foot condos at Maui Kamaole! All other 1-bedroom condos are 850-1061 square feet. You can really tell the difference in our living room, which nearly twice as big as other 1-bedroom condos. Our condo has two bath rooms, a newly-tiled private lanai with ocean-view & a private sunning area off the bedroom. There is a new king sized bed in the bedroom & a new queen sized sofa bed in the living room. Fold-out cushion-style 'futons' & a fold-up playpen are also available. A 40', brand new HD flat screen LED TV can be viewed from anywhere in the living room and even from the lanai. The newly-painted kitchen is fully equipped including a microwave, garbage disposal, range, oven, dishwasher, blender, refrigerator and freezer plus all the dishes & utensils you will need. Bar-B-Q facilities are available at both pools & outside the condo. For your convenience and enjoyment our unit has a washer and dryer, color/cable TV, free high speed & wireless Internet, VCR, tape player, CD player, and phone with answering machine. Beach umbrellas, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers & boogie boards are all available for guest use, so pack light--this condo has everything you need!

Our air-conditioned condo is right across from the Kamaole III Beach Park & within walking distance of many shops and restaurants in Kihei and Wailea. Two sparkling pools and spas are available for your pleasure. Maui Kamaole is on the far south end of Kihei, right next to Wailea. Hi-rise buildings are not allowed on this side of the island.
World-class, ocean-front golf courses are located nearby. Maui Kamaole has its own tennis courts on-site for your use. There are also public courts in Kihei. You can snorkel & dive in reefs & lava flows all along the coast in front of the condo. Learn to surf or stand-up paddle board at the Cove right in Kihei or drive to Paia or Hana to experience the North Shore. Hike through thick bamboo forests with cascading waterfalls into fresh-water pools or take in the moonscape at Haleakala Crater. Walk the ocean-front path that begins at the boat ramp in front of the condos & enjoy seasonal (winter/early spring) whale watching right from shore. Or simply relax at the condo and enjoy your own slice of Paradise. From our patio we have watched whales breaching.
The beautiful Wailea Resorts & Shopping Village are nearby. Kihei has supermarkets and convenience stores that accept credit cards. There are local grocery stores in Kihei plus Costco, a new Wal-Mart and K-Mart very near the airport. You will find lots of good restaurants near the condo and all over the island. The resort hotels offer several gourmet restaurants. Or barbecue at the pool or condo & enjoy peaceful meals on the condo lanai.
Whatever you choose to do, or not do, you will love our spacious, beautiful, newly-furnished, tropically decorated condo. Please contact me if you have questions or would like to book the condo.
Sincerely, Yvonne 'Sam'

Our family fell in love with Maui the first time we visited the island in the 80's. We've been coming back ever since. Over the years, we bought 6 condos & have gradually sold all but our favorite one, Maui Kamaole I-117. It has the best view and is one of only 6 Maui Kamaole 1-bedroom condos with 1244 square feet. All others have 1061 square feet. The extra footage allows our condo to have large, square rooms, whereas other MK units have smaller, narrower rooms. We visit a few times a year & rent the condo out the rest of the time. My parents enjoy walking on the beach and relaxing & reading at both pools & on the newly-tiled lanai, where they can look out at the ocean & enjoy the beautiful sunsets. My siblings, nieces, nephews & I enjoy snorkeling & diving all along the coast from the condo to LaParuz, surfing at the Cove in Kihei (and other surf spots around the island), boogie boarding & body surfing at Kamaole III beach, hiking throughout the island, sightseeing & shopping in Kihei, Wailea & Paia and exploring the island. As a family, we are scattered from coast to coast on the mainland, but we all look forward to wonderful family reunions in the Paradise that is Maui. Yvonne 'Sam' Sandmire
Sam purchased this condo in 1990
Why Sam chose Kihei
We wanted to be on the sunny side of the island, away from the high-rise hotels & rainy weather in Kanaapali. The beaches in South Kihei & Wailea are some of the best on the island (See Maui Revealed--a great visitors' guide to the island). We enjoy being close to restaurants & shops without being in a noisy city. We enjoy the snorkeling, boogie-boarding, surfing & whale watching right in Kihei & Wailea. We love the tropical pool, sand-bottom jacuzzi and on-site tennis courts. And we adore being in a quiet, ground floor condo with a lawn & beautiful view of the ocean & West Maui Mountains.
We have looked at, owned & stayed in other condos, and ours is truly the nicest & most spacious we have seen in Kihei. We are fortunate to have bought one of only 6 ground-floor Maui Kamaole condos with the larger floor plan. Ours has as much square footage as the MK 2-bedroom condos and, because of the large, ground-floor lanai and lawn, actually offers MORE space than the 2-bedroom units! The sofa-sleeper and cushion-style 'futons' provide more sleeping spaces, so Maui Kamaole I-117 was a no-brainer.
Because Maui Kamaole has its own artesian well, the grounds are lush, tropical & immaculate. We love the morning calm. Just as the day begins to warm up in the afternoon, tropical breezes begin blowing to cool us off. The south end of Kihei is peaceful and quiet, yet within walking distance of shops & restaurants. We really feel like this is paradise.
What makes this condo unique
The best part of our condo is the view, the spaciousness & the location. We love waking up to a beautiful ocean view & taking walks along the beaches. We often see whales right from shore in the winter & early spring. While we're drinking coffee & eating papayas on the newly-tiled lanai, the birds come begging for bread crumbs. Mornings are great for beaching it so we spend many hours snorkeling, boogie boarding, whale watching, body surfing, surfing & diving right in front of Maui Kamaole & all along the coast. Afternoons are for adventures--hiking to waterfalls, exploring the Haleakala crater, sea kayaking, tennis or golf. Shopping at the island-style boutiques & open markets is fun, too! Then it's happy hour on the lanai & barbecuing at the pool, bidding farewell to the sun with a blow of the conch shell as it sinks into the ocean (watch for the green flash), enjoying delicious island food in the condo & settling in for an early slumber so we can do it all over again the next day.
We owned Maui Kamaole condos in the A & G buildings and have stayed in other Kihei condos, but we enjoyed the larger floor plan, spacious living room, gorgeous view and quiet privacy at MK I-117, so we kept this one and sold the others. We recently learned that I-117 is one of only six 1-bedroom Maui Kamaole condos with this larger floor plan. It has 1244 square feet, which is as big as the 2-bedroom condos at Maui Kamaole! The ground-floor lanai and expansive lawn creates even more space to enjoy, which is perfect for our extended family.
