Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + fold-out sofa bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Enjoy sunsets all year round in our two-bedroom, two-bathroom, oceanfront condo with a beach park next door. Gorgeous ocean views are amplified by a mirrored wall. This non-smoking condo is excellent for families or two couples. There is a queen bed in each bedroom and a new queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room with an extra thick mattress, for a maximum occupancy of six. Two full bathrooms are an added convenience. The unit was completely remodeled in 2007, newly furnished at the end of 2009, plus a new sofa bed in 2013. It has free, reliable wi-fi internet access, an in-unit washer/dryer, two televisions and an iPod/iPhone player. The kitchen is fully equipped and all linens are provided, including beach towels.

MENEHUNE SHORES is a peaceful, immaculately tended, oceanfront complex located on the beach in Kihei, a twenty minute drive from the Kahului airport. Shopping, surfing and excursion opportunities are just minutes away. Our third floor lanai overlooks the pool and the ocean, with views to West Maui and the island of Lanai. Our unit does not look out at other condos like many other complexes, just green and blue space. The solar-heated oceanfront pool, barbecue grills, and shuffleboard are located next to a small beachfront park which is perfect for young children. More grills and tables are located on the roof deck which provides a 360-degree view of Molokini Crater, Lanai and Kaho’olawe islands, and Haleakala Volcano. The best views in Kihei! Protected swimming at the King’s Pond Beach is a plus for visitors who want shallow ocean swimming without strong currents or large surf. Humpback whales can often be seen from the condo December through April, and the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary headquarters and lookout is right next door.

We are confident you will enjoy our well-equipped vacation home and the beautiful island of Maui. Aloha!

About Vicki and Dave Williamson

We are an adventurous family of five from Encinitas, California. We love camping, surfing, skiing, hiking and traveling as much as our work, school schedules, and finances allow.

Vicki and Dave Williamson purchased this condo in 2003

Why Vicki and Dave Williamson chose Kihei

We bought this property when we had an opportunity because of our love of the islands and Maui in particular.

What makes this condo unique

Menehune Shores is ideally located on the north side of Kihei, where it is quiet and more peaceful than in town, yet only a mile from shopping, restaurants and all the activities Kihei offers. It is also convenient to get just about anywhere you want on the island without a long drive, whether it's Wailea/Makena, the North Shore, Lahaina/Ka'anapali, or Kahului and the airport. There is a small, quiet beach adjacent, the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary headquarters next door, then green space and miles of beach to walk beyond that. We love that the unit looks out onto ocean, bay, and green space, not other condos! Plus the beach next door is mellow and kid-friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guestbook: Thank you so much Vicki for a very comfortable and well-kept condo! We loved that it was centrally located on Maui. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee on the lanai to the beautiful ocean view, we greatly appreciated the well-equipped closet of beach gear, especially the beach chairs and boogie boards. There were sea turtles on the rock wall one day and we really enjoyed watching and photographing them. We spent many bright, sunny days laying out by the pool and ended them BBQing as the sun settled down. We visited many great restaurants and did lots of shopping on the island. A few of our favorites were 808 Deli, Da Kitchen, and for a good steak try Duo. We rented mopeds from Maui Scooter Shack and had a blast driving them around. We ziplined at Maui Zipline through an amazing Hawaiian plantation. Enjoyed snuba, hiking, and swimming the ocean. We also spent an evening at the Old Lahaina Luau. Enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by beautiful Hawaiian dancers sharing their cultural history through their dance and music. We had so much fun and can't wait to visit again. We would stay in your condo again in a heartbeat! Thank you for the accommodations.

Great Choice!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. All the cooking supplies you will need + spices, oils & condiments (things u don't miss until u don't have them at a vacation rental). All the beach supplies you will need to enjoy a day or two at the beach. Pictures and view are as described absolutely spectacular view. Beautiful place and quiet location, this condo is not as busy as other areas we saw nor is the beach crowded. I would Totally stay here again!!! Thanks Vicki

Excellent value! Comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this nice condo. We would recommend to others.

Cons- street noise, screen and sliding doors hard to open, blinds in master bedroom don't work. Electric stove.

Pros- Very clean. Well appointed kitchen. Great view from balcony. Lots of space for family of 4, great child-friendly beach just outside. Very well stocked with beach equipment - enjoyed snorkeling, boogie boarding, and the chairs! Lots of towels. Washer/dryer. Great location -near shopping, especially Ululani's Shave Ice. No need for A/C - this place is cool and breezy.

Would happily book this condo again if we return to Maui. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the amenities at our condo and thank you for the comments. Since we're not there very often we appreciate it when our guests let us know about things like the blinds and sliding doors not working properly. We're sending the handyman over there today to address those issues. Mahalo! Follow up comment: The large sliding glass door and both sliding screen doors were replaced in Oct. 2014, along with new blinds in the master bedroom. Gas stovetops are not an option in the complex, so that can't be changed, but the gas grills are wonderful and cleaned every day!

Very comfortable, all I needed

  • 5 of 5

This an extremely comfortable condo- great lanai with sunset views over the water, all the cooking equipment I needed(Osterizer for smoothies!) and the roof barbecues afford incredible views. Well located for south Maui activities. I used the local, free Olympic size community pool several times. Great access to beautiful beaches, excellent places to eat. The owners Vicki and Dave, and their local managers are responsive. The wireless was not working well and they were all over it. All that was needed was that it needed to be restarted. I was concerned that the lack of A/C would be a problem, but the air flow and ceiling fans did the trick.

Terrific Owners, well equiped 3rd floor unit, nice view!

  • 5 of 5

Vicki was fabulous to work with from my very first communication with her. Her follow up was very prompt and professional. Unit is on the North side 3rd floor and the view is exactly as pictured. It is a very well stocked unit. From every kitchen appliance, gadget, towels, beach gear too! The beds were very comfortable (we have stayed in places with miserable bed/mattresses and it can really wreck a vacation). We slept in the front bedroom and the fans kept the room very cool and comfortable. This unit works well with 2 adult couples. Plenty of room. The pool is a good size and chairs were always available. The small beach next door would be perfect for small children. Easy access to miles of walking/running beaches which we loved using every morning. The roof top garden is an added bonus. The views from the top are fabulous. We enjoyed our stay very much, many thanks!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Kihei! The owners were very friendly and helpful. The condo was equipped with boogie boards, lawn chairs, umbrellas, surf boards and snorkeling gear. Saved us some $$$ not having to rent them! Kitchen had all the essentials and we utilized the bbq by the pool a couple times. Beautiful view off the lanai and a nice breeze kept the condo cool, no a/c needed. Condo was clean, we would definitely stay here again!
