Enjoy awesome ocean views from almost every room in this ocean front, three bedroom, 1126 square feet, fabulous unit! Living room, dining room, kitchen, Master bedroom and second Master offer 'front row' spectacular views of the Blue Pacific, West Maui mountains, Maalaea Bay and the islands of Kahoolawe and Lana'i. From this condo witness the beauty and serenity of the setting sun. Listen for the soft sounds of the Conch shell announcing sunset. Fall asleep listening to the calm, rhythmic sounds of the ocean waves.
Maui's beauty is everywhere and viewed DIRECTLY for this condo without any obstructions, such as other resorts, condos or hotels. This unit has it all including DELUXE CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING with SEPARATE THERMOSTATS in EVERY ROOM. No noisy window units here. Just cool, quiet comfort. The gorgeous views, granite, tile and marble appointments, HDTV in the living room and wall mounted flat screens in each of the three bedrooms add luxury to easy living.
The sandy beach is just outside the door and stretches for miles to the north and south of the building. The building sits in front of the ancient Hawaiian fishpond of King Kamehameha and is registered historical site. The relatively calm, warm waters of the pond make for a wonderful swimming and snorkeling experience for children and adults alike. Exciting wind and kite surfing action, monk seal, sea turtles and wintering humpback whales are visible directly from the condo. The rooftop deck, complete with Weber gas grills, picnic tables and lounge chairs offer a sweeping 360 degree view of the ocean, Mt Haleakala and south shore of Maui. The property grounds are manicured and immaculately maintained. Swim in the heated pool or access a small public swimming beach from the pool side gate.
Located in the heart of Kihei, Menehune Shores central location offers easy travel travel to six world class golf courses, the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and Maalaea Harbor. The wailea Resort hotels, shops and restaurants are just 20 minutes away. The historic seaport of Lahaina is a mere 30 minutes to the north. Kahului Aiport is 15-20 minutes from the property.

My wife and I stayed in this condo January 24-31, 2015 with 2 other couples. The condo was comfortable for all 6 adults. Kitchen has all necessary cookware and we did eat in a few times. The condo is right on the beach, great view from the balcony which had a table with 4 chairs. Complex had a very nice heated fresh water pool and nice outdoor cooking facilities. The rooftop balcony is very large with 4 gas grills, picnic tables and lounge chairs. It is very nice. The complex is in the heart of Kihei and Safeway grocery store is close by along with other shopping and restaurants.
There are 2 things to consider:
1. The condo is right above the Indian restaurant. We knew that going in. Some reviews mentioned the smells (which were minimal) but did not mention the noise. The restaurant has a lattice roof so you can hear all restaurant conversations, dishes banging and the Friday entertainment if you are sitting on the balcony. This is between 6 and 9 PM.
2. If you have 2 cars, and are staying there during high season, one of them has to be parked overnight off the property about 2 blocks away.
If these 2 issues do not bother you, then I would recommend staying at this condo.
This condo was fabulous. Our family of five was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Wonderful lanai with perfect views. Very well taken care of and the agency that we worked with in regards to rental was very professional and informative. We would stay here again. Thank you to the owners for sharing your beautiful condo with us.
My husband, two young kids (3 and 4) and mother enjoyed this 3 bedroom condo immensely! The condo itself was close to the stairs/elevators that led to the pool and lawn/bbq area. There were turtles in the protected waters a night. And we would start out mornings with a 5km run along the beach that was easy to access. Also the Indian restaurant below was excellent! The real bonus of this place is the great ocean views and breeze!
The condo itself was very clean and accommodating (they let us check out late in the day). Everything we needed was there! Towels, beach toys etc...(we left some kid stuff as well!). The pool was a great hang out area for kids and adults alike. A very social and friendly environment.
Not much noise. Very quiet at night. We would go back in a heart beat!
This property has it all. The price is unbeatable for the amenities, location, and comfort. Me and my girlfriends booked this unit for a week. We arrived in Maui ready to hit the town, got our rental car, easily drove to the property within 15 minutes, and then BAM! We walked into the unit and were awestruck with the magnificent view. I mean, it's just incredible. We never wanted to leave! The place is open, airy, has tons of storage, a nice kitchen, and a lanai to die for. We spent so many sunsets on that lanai enjoying a cocktail listening to the waves crash in. And so many mornings enjoying Kona coffee watching whales breech and play in the distance. (YES, you really can see whales playing in the ocean from the lanai!!)
Parking was easy, never a problem in the lot. The pool was great, no issues grabbing chairs to relax on. Beach access was a breeze, you don't even need to use the pool key to get to the beach which makes packing light with a bikini and a towel even more carefree. The lagoon in front was great for a warm shallow area of beach (great for kids), but we snuck around the corner of the beach to the powdery sand on the other side and soaked up rays there.
Location is great, you can walk or drive to Kihei shops in a mile or two, and it's a great jumping off point to get to the road to Hana, or Mt Haleakala for sunrise. Even Lahaina is only about a 30 minute drive away.
We had a small issue with one of the bathrooms but the property manager took care of it immediately when we called her. The only other things missing were an ipod dock or cd player to play music (so bring your own), and it would have been 10x easier if the couch was a fold out sofa bed. But we made do. Also, there's an Indian food restaurant on the ground floor, so the smells of spices and curry can permeate the air, but we were all okay with this, it smelled great and wasn't constant.
I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone visiting Maui, and I would certainly rebook with the same unit. Aloha and Mahalo!
We stayed 10 wonderful days in this PERFECT unit from the 3rd until the 13th of December, 2012.Clean, well kept, up to date furnishings..Perfect for 3 couples or family..Grounds were like astro-turf and they kept the pool area very clean..Excellent walking beach just on south?? side of the property for at least 1/2 mile..The view of the bay was fantastic and several mornings we caught sight of the whales swimming and breaching in the bay..My wife and I had been to Hawaii 7 times before, and this unit is right at the top of our list for perfect..(and the price was right)Would recommend it to anyone going with family or friends.
