Overview

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. IF you see the calendar blocked, we also have a top floor PENTHOUSE and that one might be open, so please inquire. Look below under links ...more information to see the website. Click on Maui, 6th floor.

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 edge of the ocean. 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 perfect location with lots of beaches, golf courses, shops, restaurants, snorkel, surfing, fishing, farmers 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 (we do not have a/c), but rely on those great ocean breezes; plus free parking and free fast WIFI. Unit has been completely remodeled, cable 42 inch 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. You can probably tell, we love the water!

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, aquarium, 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.

Close to all the activities in Maui; no parking or traffic problems like in Lahaina or Kaanapali. We used to own a place in West Maui but it just got very crowded so we sold and purchased in Kihei. For us, it's the perfect peaceful location.

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,

This was our first trip to Hawaii and what a way to start! The condo was perfect, very modern, clean and with the best ocean view you could ask for. The kitchen was well stocked with the basics and the new appliances worked great. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, plenty of beach towels, and a small cooler. The four BBQ's on the roof worked great. Meeting new some people up there each night was fun and the views were incredible!

Whales were everywhere and we saw six sea turtles in the ancent fish pond out front. We enjoyed the direct access to the great beach and walked 6 miles along it to the south of the fish ponds most mornings. Sunsets from the lanai were amazing.

One thing that amazed us was that we never heard any sounds from the other condos, it was like no one else was there. So peaceful!

Parking was not a problem, even with the resturant located in the building. The staff was very friendly and kept the grounds and BBQ's very clean.

We would definitely recommend Gayle and Bill's condo to everyone. It would be a great place to spend your honeymoon or a special anniversary! We'd give this condo ten stars, if we could!

A wonderful stay in a super place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in January 2014 at the condo. It was perfect for us. Very nicely furnished and everything we needed to cook was in the kitchen. The view from the living room and balcony was totally awesome. We looked right down into the water and could see whales in the distance. A very large rooftop patio where folks gather for sunset, barbecue and meet other folks was an added bonus. Beaches on either side of the building offer long, very peaceful walks and are not as crowded at the beaches in town. You will not go wrong staying in this condo.

Exactly what we wanted & more

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time! We were impressed from the start of the trip planning until the end! Gayle was so easy to work with answering all our questions in detail. There was clear instructions and detailed information prior to going as well as when we arrived. We didn’t have to worry about losing a key as there was a key lock combination. We enjoy cooking on our vacations and having a well equipped kitchen with all the necessities exceeded our expectations. We also used the 2 grill areas located by the pool and roof top. Going to the roof for grilling, sunset or eating at the many tables is a must as views from there are breath taking. There is a swimming cove created with a rock wall out front of the complex as well as beach area. If you prefer swimming in the pool that is great too. The pool area is clean with plenty of lounge chairs. There is an Indian restaurant onsite if you are interested in that. I heard good reviews although we didn’t eat there. You will smell the occasional Indian spices but it was never annoying or too much. We drove from the airport and parking is free so getting here from the airport was easy. It is great that the condo is slightly outside the hustle and bustle of downtown. But you are close enough to walk to the grocery store. The unit was amazing! The patio view was outstanding just as it was pictured. We loved watching the wind surfers. The grounds were immaculate. It felt like we were living on a golf course. There were beaches to walk on either side and that became our morning routine. This place felt like a home away from home. When we go to Maui again this is the place we will stay hands down!

This condo is exactly what we were hoping it would be. I dont need to say much about it, just let the pictures do the talking. im sitting on the patio of 416 as im writing this review and looking at the exact same thing as i saw in the pictures before i booked my stay. This condo brings a feel to maui that i hope you dont miss out on. If you have a chance book this condo! if its not too late, extend your stay, you can thank me later.

Loved, loved, loved Gayles Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has the best view at Menehune Shores, in our humble opinion. Whale watching was fantastic and the sunsets were absolutely beautiful! The condo is well stocked from everything in the kitchen to all things for the beach...really loved that spices have been left for others to use and also condiments left in the fridge, so be sure to take a quick inventory before heading to the store. We spent most days eating in as we love to cook and it was such a beautiful view there was no point in going to a restaurant. We used the gas grills on the roof quite a lot and met some great folks while enjoying the fabulous rooftop views. The grounds at Menehune Shores are superb...these guys really take pride in their work and it shows. My husband runs a business and made the comment that he wished all of his employees took as much pride in their work as these guys do. The Farmer's Markets are the best place to buy your produce....fresh, fresh, fresh! Gayle is very professional and super prompt in her communications. We will definitely be returning to this condo. Thanks Gayle!!!

The view makes this place worth every penny.

  • 5 of 5

The minute you open the front door you are drawn to the balcony, and soon you will want a pair of binoculars. We felt at home here and and made it a point to watch every sunset from the lanai. The view is truly 180 degrees of ocean bliss. I was in barbeque heaven being able to cook on top of the building and watch humpback whales in one direction and breathtaking mountains in the other. Gayle's condo has all the comforts of home and we are definitely going back soon!
