GORGEOUS MAUI OCEANVIEW: 2 BR/2 BA CONDO - STEPS FROM THE BEACH!

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, wifi, washer/dryer, pool, BBQs

Two bedroom, two bath, oceanfront condo: gorgeous ocean views are amplified by mirrors and invite the dramatic beauty of Hawaii into the comforts of relaxing at home. This non-smoking condo is excellent for families or two couples.

Menehune Shores is a peaceful, oceanfront condo on the ground floor close to the calm sparkling bay of North Kihei. Your patio overlooks the seashore, grassy slopes and over the ocean, along with a distant island. You will often see spectacular wind surfing and fantastic, dramatic sunsets. Humpback whales can often be seen from the condo December through April. In addition to this exclusive serene ocean view, the unit contains ceiling fans in each room, a fully remodeled kitchen and a washer/dryer in the unit for convenience.

Time at Menehuni Shores: ''It's a beautiful location with a million dollar view of the ocean and beach. You have provided everything that your guests could possibly need. The ground floor location worked out fine for the wheelchair. We have come home with great tans and feeling very relaxed and renewed. I hope we can use it again in the future...''

Menehune Shores Beach:

Menehune Shores is steps from the beach. There are no roads or buildings in the way of the gorgeous ocean view. The beach is calm like the bay, the water is shallow, great views, beautiful sunsets, and perfect for walks. This beach is secluded; you'll not see a lot of people.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Aloha Michael and Barbara:



I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on Maui and how much we enjoyed your lovely condo. I especially enjoyed waking up to the cooing of the doves and falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean. Your condo was very comfortable and the kitchen equipped with "just enough dishes" so as to not get carried away making gourmet meals. (My daughter is an awesome cook.) We ate in quite a few nights and that saved us some money...found some great restaurants as well. The beds were very comfortable too. I know that the trip and the condo were a great birthday gift for my daughter.



I also want to mention what a wonderful asset Hope Marie is and she is a delight to work with.

I will return next year 2011 in the spring... this time the trip will be FOR ME. I will contact you about coming in May. I need to organize some dates with my family.



Mahalo and much aloha.

I am an author of seven books on acupressure, which uses the same points as acupuncture, but I teach how to relieve stress and pain with your hands instead of needles.

My wife Barbara and I love Maui. We want our guests to fully enjoy Maui's beauty. I know Maui like the palm of my hand, and offer to give guests detailed guidance to find wonderful places and great restaurants.

We go out of our way to make our condos especially nice. For instance, we pay extra to have Hope host all our units. Hope does a fabulous job making sure that everything in the condo is clean and our guests have what they need. She is known to go out of her way to get our guests what they need and she does it from the heart with aloha.

Michael Gach purchased this condo in 2002

I fell in love with Maui in 1983 and vowed to always return. I actually wrote most of my books on this island, which fills me with inspiration.

I have always been gifted to have an eye for places and people who have potential for beauty and greatness. This is how I created and developed my healing school for over 32 years, and its also how I chose to buy this vacation rental.

When I enter the condo, I always get a overwhelming sense of peacefulness and a natural high from looking at the ocean view. This condo is positioned in a wonderful place, with a view that's straight down the beach. Its protected by the wind and the sun - the location is rather amazing to be steps from the beach.

The Menehune Shores building is curved like a horseshoe. Each condo has a very different location, feel, and faces a different angle. We are far enough away from the road, so you don't hear any traffic. We are on the other side of the pool and restaurant which makes it so much quieter and you do not get the smells of the restaurant.

I have been in units that are facing the ocean, which you would think would be better. However, these units actually face right into the harsh afternoon sun. Also, when I looked at the view, straight out to sea, I felt like I was on a boat. Seeing the coast line in our condo and how the gentle waves wash up to the beach is a picture I love to see.

Our condo is unique because of the beautiful oceanfront view, which is 'steps from the beach'. Its in the perfect location, facing south west with a wonderful view of palm trees, beach, ocean, and islands in the distance. Plus, our comfortable condo is protected by the sun and wind in afternoons. For a vacation - its ideal.

A PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
The condo was excellent. it had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay and then some. All inquiries to owner and property manager were quickly responded and very helpful. You feel welcome the moment you step into the condo.
The location was perfect. I could've spent the whole time on the lanai just watching the ocean and the beautiful scenery but there's so much more to do. The rooftop BBQ's are a must. Even if it's just hot dogs, you've never experienced such gorgeous scenery bbq'ing.
Everybody did a great job to make our holiday exceptional.

Owner's Response: We are so proud to hear that our guests are happy and enjoyed staying in our oceanfront condo. We know how beautiful and peaceful our view is - but when a family travels over 3,000 miles and writes about how much their party enjoyed it - from our lanai and from our roof-top - it's like music to our ears. Staying in a place that you purely enjoy is what a vacation to Maui is all about.

GREAT LOCATION AND AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and my nearly 2 year old toddler stayed at this lovely condo. We thought the location was excellent as it is very close to the water. We were able to paddle board every morning, catch some waves on the other side of the fish pond and had some great calm waters in easy walking distance for little ones to play with. The condo has a bunch of extra amenities that make your beach time extra special - beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, coolers and extra towels. We had a little internet issue but Hope and her team took care of it quickly which was much appreciated, as well as the treats! It is a bit outdated but clean and this just didn't really matter to us. We had a great vacation and would stay here again hands down.

GREAT MAUI HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time in Maui. The stay at Barb and Michael's condo was very comfortable. The facilities at Menehune Shores is very well maintained and the rooftop bbq area was a bonus for sightseeing! The condo itself, altho an older facility, was very clean and comfortable. The extras were very much appreciated (beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, coolers, beach towels, etc). So nice that is supplied. Also having cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels to start us out was another bonus. My brother and his wife stayed in a close by facility and they were envious on how well cared for we were. Hope checked in on us a couple of times to make sure all was well and I called her a couple times for recommendations and she was very accommodating. Blueberry loaf dropped off was also much appreciated! Was sorry we missed meeting her in person though. Next time Hope! Barb and Michael, thank you for keeping your condo in such good care so that us snowbirds can enjoy a relaxing and beautiful time in Maui. We really hope to make a trip back and will definitely want to stay at this facility again. Love the ocean view, which we were able to watch whales from, and having a stretch of beach to stroll down in the morning so close to us. If the travel day to get there was a bit shorter and easier we would be back a lot more!! Thanks again for a wonderful vacation!

SLICE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Well-maintained, older condo with an incredible view! The view is exactly as pictured - daily sunset view right from the living room, back bedroom, and lanai. Soothing sounds of ocean and breeze to lull one to sleep.

Well-equipped kitchen gave us the flexibility to prepare some of our own meals. Usually, kitchen knives in rentals make me wish I'd brought a set from home (but don't want to lose an expensive knife to the TSA). Although cheap and basic, the set in the kitchen had actually been sharpened and slicing pineapple was not a problem! The rooftop grills were clean and easy to use.

The condo location was convenient for exploring Maui, especially the beaches from Kihei to La Perouse (sp?) Bay. Easy access to shopping, dining, activities. Since this condo is on the first floor, it would be super easy access for anyone with a disability, too.

Beach towels, coolers, laundry supplies, W/D, hair dryer, other conveniences, made our stay quite comfortable. The only down side was NO air conditioning! I overlooked this detail when booking. Luckily, with all the windows and doors open, there was a good breeze much of the time, but it still was a little too warm during the day (fortunately, we were usually gone during the hottest hours) and for sleeping. I'm not used to heat at night and found it a little warm and sticky, but my friend from a neighboring island didn't think it was a problem, so it's entirely subjective. Plenty of ceiling and electric fans also helped.

Overall, it was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, home-away-from-home atmosphere.

Owner's Response: I read every word. I'm certainly proud of the 5 out of 5 rating and the title, "A Slice of Paradise" really says it all. I read every word, like a hawk, because I care what our guests experience and I can make any necessary changes and improvements quickly. You see, we live just 10 minutes away, unlike most condo owners on the "mainland" who hire a huge management company. My wife Barbara and I are very proud of this 100% oceanfront condo and we make sure our guests have everything they need to have a wonderful vacation in Maui.

ENJOYED THE LANAI

  • 5 of 5
First visit to Maui with my wife and two adult children, had a wonderful stay, most enjoyment was coffee in the morning sitting on the Lanai (quiet and beautiful). Loved the location, not nearly as many people as on the west side of the island. Central location close to everything. Would love to come back and visit again. Thank you.
