Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Our unit 'Paradise Found', is a quiet, deluxe, ground floor unit in a small, two-story building. The pool, front office and laundry room are a few yards from the front door. Out the back door (our lanai) we have a lovely patio set for outdoor dining. The commercial grade gas barbeque is twenty feet away from the lanai.
The beach, Kamaole II, is rated as one of the best beaches in all of the Hawaiian Islands. It is very clean and well supervised by professional lifeguards. We have boogie boards, beach towels and lawn chairs in the closet. The beach is also a wonderful location for a romantic moonlit walk.
The staff at the Kihei Kai Nani are fantastic. They really exemplify the 'Aloha Spirit'. Arnold, our maintenance man, will make sure that any concerns (not that we anticipate any)are taken care of promptly and professionally. Diana, our cleaning lady, is rated number one. She makes sure that the unit is immaculate prior to your arrival and that you have fresh linens and towels.
I installed a punch code lock system on the front door. I simply generate an access code via the Internet that will operate the lock during your visit. If you happen to forget the code, the folks at the office can retrieve it for you.

About Samuel Beaton
Aloha from Sam and Lea Beaton. We are both retired from the federal Government in Canada (Correctional Service). My wife supervised the security operations at a minimum security facility, while I was a Parole Officer working out of a medium security institution. The one thing common to everybody working in a prison is our long-term plans for retirement. Lea loves the slower pace, shopping and beautiful weather of Maui. I look forward to spending more time with the Kihei Canoe Club and being active on the ocean. We both look forward to being able to spend a lot more time on the beach in Maui!
Samuel Beaton purchased this condo in 2009
Why Samuel Beaton chose Kihei
Max, our thirteen-year-old son, decided we needed to visit Maui in April of 2009. The Make-A-Wish foundation sent us to a very fancy five-star hotel in Ka'anipali. It was wonderful and we fell in love with the island.
However, I don't really like being waited on. I'm the kind of guy that would pump my own gas even if if costs more than 'full service'. We actually found we prefer cooking what we want and eating when we want. Restaurants are nice once in a while, but I hate waiting around for a meal that I could have cooked better myself at a fraction of the cost; I prefer to spend my money buying food at Costco and 'going out' to have fun!
Our second visit (two months later) we came armed with pre-authorized paperwork from our banker. We looked from end of the island to the other for the very best location. We very quickly decided that Kihei, on the south side of the island, was ideal. Kihei receives very little rain. The water comes from the other side of the island. The temperature is always warm, not too hot, (twelve months of the year) and the ocean is always a very comfortable 72 degrees. The people of Maui are very friendly and helpful. There are no tourists. We are 'visitors' and are treated like very welcome guests. Portions of the island don't look like they have changed much in many decades, yet modern conveniences like Costco and movie theaters are readily available.
What makes this condo unique
We first selected the Kihei Kai Nani complex based on its excellent location, the high quality of its buildings and well-groomed grounds. We chose our particular unit for its unique location as well. We are on the ground floor at the end of a small two story building; no stairs and lots of windows. It is very quiet and yet centrally located within a few yards of the office, laundry room and pool. The beach is at the end of the driveway. We are just far enough away that we hear nothing but the birds in the morning and the crickets, geckos etc. in the evening.
