CLOSEST TO THE OCEAN, 180 DEGREE VIEW, SUNSETS, FREE INTERNET, PARKING, & BEACH

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Do you really want an OCEANFRONT view? This unit at Menehune Shores is only a few feet from the water and has a DIRECT VIEW that is totally private. Some units are listed as oceanfront, however they have side views, looking at lots of grass, trees, and a distant view to the ocean. IF the view is as important to you, as it is to me, this is the place for you! You can view my website below, to really get a feel for what an OCEANFRONT unit should be! IF this is booked, we also have a penthouse (top floor) oceanfront one bedroom in the same building. See on website.

Aug 2013, this unit just had a brand new bathroom remodel, for over $10,000. Beautiful tub/shower, with glass tile decos, granite counter with under-mounted sink, and LED lights, you can leave on when you retire, and have a nice night light.

Menehune Shores is a tropical oasis, with beautiful oceanfront grounds to roam. This is a romantic one bedroom oceanfront Kihei Maui condo for 2 persons, all remodeled and only 35 feet from the water's edge. We have a private lanai at this accommodation, with teak dining table a chaise lounge; incredible 180 degree view of great surf, brilliant sunsets, turtles, whales in season, rainbows; this is definitely a unit for someone who wants to be close to the ocean.

Sitting directly on the beach, only 3 miles from Wailea, and 9 miles from the airport, you have a great location with lots of beaches, golf courses, shops, restaurants, snorkel, surfing, fishing, farmer's markets, and activities nearby. Amenities include an oceanfront pool, (heated), 2 shuffleboards, gas barbecues oceanside and on the rooftop with 360 degree views, ceiling fans for cooling, plus free parking. Unit has been completely remodeled, cable 42 ' HD TV smart TV in the living room, DVD with movies, fully equipped kitchen, granite counters, tile floors, washer/dryer, literally all the comforts of home.

About Gayle Smith

We have been married 40+ years and have had a place in Kona for many years. Loving the ocean, we decided it would be great to go from the high surf of Kona (VRBO 6909) with all the lava rock, to the quiet sandy beaches of Maui. Kihei is a perfect spot, looking out to Molokini and Lanai, watching whales in winter, and enjoying the sunsets. We'd love to share our place with you. For those wanting a month in Southern California, check out our VRBO 375793 in Oceanside.

Gayle Smith purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gayle Smith chose Kihei

Menehune Shores was built in the 70's, when they allowed building close to the water. So many places are far back, or across roads, but not this one! We feel at home with nature when visiting here. Very close to shopping, airport, art galleries, farmer's markets, just very convenient.

What makes this condo unique

Whale watching up close and personal from the private lanai (winter).

Long walks on the sandy beaches, right from the property. Swimming on site as well!

Watching windsurfers from the lanai.

Peaceful,relaxing, private atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jan 2012 Best view in all of Maui! We have had a wonderful time in 416 and couldln’t have asked for a nicer unit, and a more wonderful vacation. We made two tries to see the sunrise at Haleakala, and the 2nd try was awesome, beautiful and well worth it. The Road to Hana CD was very helpful as were all the books on the local area, thank you for those. We explored many beaches and loved he trip to the blowhole (northern shore of W. Maui) WOw, what desolate beauty. This is truly an island of extremes. We loved this condo, thanks for the beach towels, boogie board, cooler and all the essentials. The lanai is perfect, what a view. This is God’s country. Mahalo,

Clean, comfortable accommodations with all expected amenities available in condo. Well maintained. Grounds clean and nicely cared for.
Nice little pool for dipping/ sunning.
Right on the ocean. Wonderful ocean views from lanai. Great walking beaches on either side of property.
Terrific "home base" location for us to go to many beautiful beaches and car day trips to the various parts of Maui.

It was one of the best vacations I have had. The owner was responsive, the descriptions and photos are accurate. The condo is well equipped with extra touches to make it even nicer for guests. The location is superb for anyone who intends to explore Maui. The beach nearby is just ok, but there are better ones only a short drive away. What made this place exceptional for me was that after our activity for the day, we could come back to this condo and just enjoy the view until dark. We cooked in or got takeout most nights because we did not want to miss sunset from our private lanai. I would book again in a heartbeat, and heartily recommend it to others.

Excellent condo with fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic way to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary! Gayle's condo was everything we had hoped for and more, for our first vacation to Hawaii. We loved all of the suggestions for restaurants and activities around the island. Our hope was to explore other islands during our stay, but fell in love with Maui and didn't want to leave. One of the best parts…having breakfast and coffee on the fantastic lanai with that spectacular view!!! We found ourselves just staring at the ocean and enjoying the peacefulness. We even saw some whales while sitting there! 100% satisfied with our stay at Gayle's condo and would love to return someday.

Even better than we could have imagined!!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was even better than we anticipated, the view is even more stunning than in the photos and the location was ideal for exploring the island of Maui. We absolutely adored our "home base" at Meneheune Shores, a little piece if paradise for these Québécois :)

WOW!!

  • 5 of 5
We walked into the Condo and the view took our breath away. Exactly how it was described. It was wonderful sitting on the deck and counting how many whales, we can see. The owners personal touches and comfortable furniture made the condo all that much nicer. They have thought of everything that you might need even down to a crock pot, cooler, beach chairs etc. The unit was very clean and well maintained, and that speaks volumes that the owner cares. I would not hesitate to recommend renting this condo, and will be telling our friends and family. The owners are personable, fair, and prompt in any correspondence you will have. Many thanks,for sharing your home, and look forward to a return visit

A Fantastic Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
At the outset, Gayle was professional, timely and very helpful responding to us. This was our first VRBO experience and we were very grateful to Gayle in providing us such an excellent place to stay for our two week vacation. The listing was as described and the view from the lanai was incredible. Breakfast every morning on the lanai accompanied by humpback whales visible in the back ground, we loved it! Having a ocean front view was the highlight, just breathtaking! The condo provided all the amenities needed to make the condo feel like home. The condo was clean and organized as pictured and described. Menehune Shores is very well managed and maintained, very clean and the grounds are meticulously maintained, it is absolutely beautiful, lush and green. We also enjoyed the natural ventilation of the Hawaiian breeze keeping the condo very comfortable, and much better than having to use air conditioning. Gayle provided a list of her favourite things to do while on the island, and we had fun "ticking" off her list. The restaurants, shopping, fruit stands, and farmer's markets in the area were so much fun to visit, plus exploring the island and whale watching were highlights. There are plenty of great places to eat in the area and the food stores such as Safeway are close by. All necessities are close by. We will return someday to Menehune Shores and would highly recommend to our friends and relatives, we can hardly wait!
