A few steps further and you reach The Cove surfing beach, and the premier South Maui swimming/snorkeling beach, Kamaole I.
Our deluxe unit is located a short walking distance to Kihei's best restaurants, shopping, and movies. A large grassy oceanfront area in front of condo is ideal for bocce ball, soccer, sun bathing, and sunset watching. You can't find a better location in S. Maui.

We lived on Maui for 15 years, and in this condo blissfully for the past three years. A few years ago we went through a life-changing family tragedy. We lost our son, and felt the need to be near our daughters, so we moved to the East Coast. It was difficult to leave our beautiful little place in Maui, but we were glad we were able to put our condo on the rental market, and come back to visit as often as we are able. We hope others will find the rest, renewal and refreshment here that we loved and that is such a special part of life on Maui. Our condo is filled with all the luxuries we like to live with, and we hope our guests will enjoy just as much as we do.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2005
We had a lifelong dream to live on the ocean, and when this rare opportunity came up, we jumped! We love the weather of South Maui, almost perpetual sunshine, and the fact that we are walking distance to so many enjoyable things: the market, restaurants, the park and the movies. We spend so much time outdoors just soaking in the beauty in front of us. The beach is our favorite morning and evening walk, and the view outside our windows is an ever-changing slide show of enchanted island life with surfers, paddlers, whales, families strolling together. We never tire of it. There is nothing like breakfast on our lanai, in the quiet of the day; or the sunsets out sitting on the wall at the edge of the ocean. It is a one of a kind, magical place, and Maui's best kept secret.
We stayed here for 6 nights and it was very comfortable. There were 3 adults and two kids (age 6 and 4). We had plenty of room to spread out. The kids shared the downstairs bedroom which had two large (double/queen) beds. My mom had the master bedroom with an amazing corner view of the ocean. My husband and I stayed in the 2nd bedroom which had the two twin beds converted to a king. The living room furniture is very comfortable, the kitchen is very well stocked (coffee makers, crock pot, blender and plenty of dishes, pots, utensils, and spices, plus a community gas grill outside). The outside dining area was great for morning coffee and breakfasts and inviting for dinners and sunsets. The condo overlooks a big grassy area and easy access to sandy beaches on the left and right. There are lots of people wandering by to get from place to place so we had fun people watching. Also a lot of people migrate to this area for sunsets which were fantastic! My kids loved the pool and hot tub, and it was a nice feature to have after a day at the beach. They had lots of beach gear including towels, snorkel equipment (saw turtles just below our unit), and chairs. At the time of our stay there were also 3 hair dryers, a couple of curling irons and a flat iron! Wish I would have known this, although we were at the beach so often, I rarely styled my hair! We met the owners when they were stopping by to check the hot tub and work in the yard. They are a very nice couple and asked for our feedback. They really want to make this place comfortable! This property is gated, which added a nice secure feeling. We had the pool and hot tub to ourselves all week. We have already booked this condo for 2016! Can't wait to go back.
It doesn't get any better than this. The unit shares a hot tub and pool with only 3 other units, so we had the pool to ourselves the whole time. The pool is one of the better pools I've seen because the bottom is completely tiled - no raw feet after a week of pool time. The unit had a box of shared snorkel equipment, and boogie boards so that saved us some rentals (lots of masks). Note - the pool has a vacuum gizmo that must be avoided while swimming but it keeps the pool clean. (It's about 7 ft deep in the deep end.)
The unit has water views nearly everywhere. The kids slept downstairs in the double-queen room which is below ground so it stayed dark and upstairs noise didn't bother them.
The beach is just through the gate and to the left. Snorkel early (8am) out front and you'll most likely see lots of sea turtles, but do it early. This region of the island gets windy from 11am to 5pm so that reduces snorkeling visibility (and bigger waves). The grassy area out side the gate is a public park but doesn't have much traffic.
It was nice to have a parking area behind a private gate (the other car parked on the street). Everything is very well maintained. The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking equipment and spices.
The rental company (Rentals Maui) even has it's own app that has useful info!!!
We recently returned from almost two weeks at this condo and were so satisfied that we have already booked for 2014. The booking process and correspondence with the owner and property agent went smoothly, and all features were as advertised. Without knowing Maui very well we were taking a chance on location but this spot is perfect for almost anything. The beach - and an excellent one at that - is less than a minute out the back gate. Our son turned three while we were there and the calm surf along much of the beach plus the pool at the condo helped him make great progress in his swimming and comfort with water. Being able to spot countless whales from the lanai and living room windows was a special thrill for all of us landlocked Albertans.
We were appreciative of the convenience of nearby grocery stores, restaurants and kid's play park. The condo itself is well-appointed and very comfortable; it also has all of the gadgets and utensils we needed. We took advantage of scuba diving at Molikini Crater and full-island helicopter tour - both of which I'd highly recommend. Our routine usually involved a trip to the beach, then a rinse off at the shower tree by the back gate (the sand is so fine you'll need to work at it), a dip in the pool and then some time in the hot tub. The days tend to fly by, which we hope is true for the interim months until we return. Many thanks to the owners for making this home available to renters - based on a scan of hundreds of other properties and locations, a home of this calibre at this price is very rare.
We stayed at hale Ili Ili A for 10 nights over spring break and had a wonderful time! There were 6 of us, including a 2 year old and a 7 month old and had everything we needed! The kitchen is very well equipped as is the rest of the condo. They had everything from extra lighbulbs to kids' books to games to movies.....there was so much here! I can't say enough about the location. It was a tiny walk to the beach with a beautiful green space right outside the door. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved sitting on the lanai! We could easily walk into Kihei for groceries or coffee and there was a great children's playground nearby as well. We would gladly return to Kihei and stay here again, and will be recommending this place to our friends as well! Thank you!
We have just returned from 3 weeks in Hale Ili Ili with 3 generations - my parents, ourselves and my kids (7, 10). It was awesome. The photos do it justice. The 3 bedrooms were great with ceiling fans, or if you really wanted air conditioning. The living area was a comfy place to relax in the after lunch heat and the kitchen was really well appointed (spices and such were a great bonus). We loved the lanai dining area and we all alternated between the beach (less than a minute walk), pool and hot tub. We really appreciated being able to walk to Foodland and all the shops and restaurants in Kihei - especially Alexanders for fish tacos. The agent was very friendly and helpful. The luck of a new friend for my son was just an added bonus!
Mahalo for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!
Our family of six visited Hale Ili Ili in June, 2010 and had a wonderful time. We snorkeled in the morning with the fish and turtles on the reef in our own back yard, relaxed by the pool in the afternoon, watched the sunsets from the hot tub in the evening and enjoyed movies on the big flat screen TV at night. The house, furnishings and amenities were all first class; tremendous hospitality. The location was ideal. Grocery stores, swim shops, clothing stores and restaurants are all minutes away, yet the off-street location gave us complete quiet and privacy. The adjacent beach was perfect for swimming and sunnning and never too crowded. Kihei is also a centrally located so trips to Haleakala, Hanna, and Kanapali were grand adventures, not headaches. Be sure to stop at Eskimo Candy for the Opakapaka fish and chips; awesome!
Our property is close and convenient to the best beaches, and all activities, restaurants and shopping in the South Maui area. It is an easy 45 minute drive to all other Maui attractions on the west and south side, except the volcano summit. That is a 2 hour drive from all points on Maui.
