Overview

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.

About Michael Gach

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

Why Michael Gach chose Kihei

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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.

Loved our stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the ground floor at Menehune shores. We had a great view of the ocean from one of the bedrooms and the patio. There was enough room for the whole family. We loved that there were extras like beach towels, beach chairs and boogie boards for our use. We took advantage of the grills that were available for many dinners. The pool was great and the beach areas wonderful. All of this was close but not too close to our condo. The kitchen had everything we needed. Hope Marie left us a few goodies and made us feel very special.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you and your family loved staying at our condo and enjoyed Maui. We're glad you took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen, beach chairs, BBQ grills, the wonderful pool that's so close to the ocean, our beach towels, boogie boards, and of course the great ocean view.

Great place to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

There are several units in Menehune Shores available on VRBO, but I'm so glad we chose this one! After staying on the ground floor & being able to walk steps to the beach, I would never consider any other unit that's not on the ground floor! The location had the closest access to the beach while still being not too close to the pool & restaurant noise. It faced southwest & made for wonderful sunrises & sunsets every day. It costs a little more than units on higher floors, but totally worth it. Plenty of space for my husband and I and 2 kids (11 & 13). There's no A/C, but we never missed it. So much cross breeze, I was actually cool in the evenings! We saw a lot of whale action while just sitting on the lanai. We visited just about every beach from Kihei to Makena and glad we did. Each had it's own special flair from paddleboarding in Makena to surfing at Kalama to just hanging out on bobbing in the water on our beach at Menehune. We also spent a day with Trilogy on their catamaran snorkeling at Molokini & whale watching & it was a quick 10 min drive to Maalaea Harbor to catch the boat. Also a nice 30 min drive to Lahaina for lunch, shopping & beaches. Just a great location to experience the south side of the island. Hope was a great hostess, checking on us every couple of days & leaving us treats like chocolates, juice, water and Chinese crackers (cookies).

Owner's Response: Wow thank you for leaving such a detailed, informative review which will actually be useful for future guests. I hope you enjoyed the beautiful oceanfront sunset view from the master bedroom. Since all of our guests love staying in our condo, it books up fairly consistently. We live just 10 minutes away (unlike most owners who live on the mainland) which enables us to take care of details for the unit and make it special for our guests to fully enjoy.

Our Maui home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here five years in a row and already have a reservation for 2016. This condo is perfect for us in every way. It's very clean and well furnished. The view is amazing. Hope Marie, their condo hostess, leaves us wonderful treats and takes the time to call to check on us during our stay and answers our questions quickly and completely.

Owner's Response: You're one of our best guests. You and your husband are like two peas in a pod when you are staying in our condo. I think you were surprised this year to see that we completely remolded both of the bathrooms. The new granite counters make a statement. I love the beautiful view of the ocean with the islands out there. I'm so happy that you love to stay in our condo.

Menehune Shores Property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our 2 week stay in this property. The condo itself had everything we needed and more as far as appliances, dishes, towels, bedding and cooking utensils. We especially appreciated finding the beach chairs which came with us when we went on any driving excursion. The rooms are comfortable and well lit. The view is spectacular! We appreciated being so close to the beaches, literally steps away. We saw many whale spouts on the horizon and watched the beautiful sunset almost every night either from our lanai or from the roof top. The pool is clean, warm and well maintained. The building itself is very quiet with many friendly people and we felt safe in the area. Our 'Hawaii Helper' Hope was ever accommodating. Although we did not need to ask for much, she was helpful with all we needed. We did have to drive for shopping as there was no shopping within a walking distance. Which was just one very minor downfall of this picturesque and comfortable property. Cab service in the area is available and accommodating. We will be returning to beautiful Maui again and we will gladly rent this property again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We're thrilled you enjoyed everything about our condo. I tell people that our Oceanfront view is beautiful, peaceful, romantic, and it's just steps from the beach. We're different from most condo owners who live on the mainland and have a management company who deals with 250 other units. Instead, we live just 10 minutes away, in the same town, and take care of the details that make the condo comfortable and nice. We love Maui so much and want our guests to be supported to enjoy this beautiful tropical island.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were staying at this condo with our 2 toddlers and the grandparents. This condo was clean, fully equipped with everything we needed for the beach and to cook our meals. We were very pleased with child accesibility to the pool and beach (with awesome rock lagoon).The lanai had a beautiful view of the ocean and we could watch all the evening sunsets. The host was very thoughtful, dropping off gifts during our stay and arriving with juice, water and chocolate. If you made me write one con it would be that the condo is not really walking distance to restaurants and shops, especially with kids. There are areas with no sidewalks and the main road gets a lot of traffic. That being said, we would come back to this condo in a heartbeat! The ground floor condo unit is a huge plus while coming and going, for kids and adults.
