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.

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

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.

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.

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 :)

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

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!

We stayed in Gayle's condo for two weeks and it was perfect! There is nothing I could say to describe the view except unbelivable. We were there to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and had a wonderful time. The condo is very cozy and romantic. The best part about it (other than the view) is that Gayle provides you with all your beach supplies, from a CD for the road to Hanna to snorkeling gear, we had everything we needed and more! The location of the condo is convenient. There are lots of great eats, nice beaches, and reasonable prices. If you want to go to Old Lahaina and Front St is 30 min away. We do reccomend you rent a car to get around. Gayle was very helpful and prompt in answering all our questions. We definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great time in Maui.

Perfect spot for Vacation

My husband and I had the most relaxing vacation at this beautiful condo in Kihei. The area is quiet but close to everything, and the view from this unit is a 10; the most incredible I.ve had the pleasure of enjoying. There is no a/c but really, if you want to enjoy the ocean breezes, hear the surf, and feel like you are in Hawaii, who would want to shut those floor to ceiling doors anyway. Ceilng fans are in every room! We swam at the property, there are some sea turtles right out front, but we also explored the many great beaches along the Kihei-Wailea coast. One day we did drive to Lahaina, but it is very crowded, definitely worth a one day trip though.
Farmer's Markets are all around, we love the BIG swap meet on Sat mornings (go early it opens at 7 am) over in Kahalui at the community college. It's great for gifts to bring home for friends and family. Gayle lists it on her fun things to do, which we used daily for ideas. There are also a lot of books in the condo with activities and attractions. Down by the office, where you get your free parking pass, there is a brochure on all local activities.
The unit is as beautiful as the pictures, and there is absolutely everything you need for a great vacation..........unit and grounds were very clean and well taken care of. You can tell the owner cares about this place.
When we return to Maui, this is the first place we will check on for availability.
