Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

This recently remodeled condo provides you with just about everything you will need for a memorable Maui getaway; beach chairs, towels, coolers, umbrella, boogie boards, snorkeling gear and ALL NEW furniture (including a sleeper sofa w/ 6' mattress). The modern kitchen is fully equipped w/ Stainless appliances, utensils and other 'must have' items (Blender, Toaster, Coffee Maker, NEW plates & glasses, etc.). There is a new, wall mounted 47' HDTV complete w/ cable TV & a Blu Ray player, in the living area and outdoor chairs for enjoying the sunrise and sunsets on the lanai.

Kihei Kai Nani is conveniently located within walking distance, to so many 'must see' sights and 'must do' adventures. No need to book expensive snorkeling tours, when 'Turtle Town' is close by. Just south of our complex lies a quiet beach and beautiful reef, known for sea turtles, while snorkeling along the shoreline, we have observed these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.

About Melanie Baughan

My mother's family is from Maui and I experienced it for the first time at age 18, and loved it! A few years ago I was able to go back and make my dream to have a piece of paradise come true. Now I love to share the beauty that is Maui with others. Let me know when you'll be here!

Melanie Baughan purchased this condo in 2012

Why Melanie Baughan chose Kihei

Great location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Melanie's condo Jan 13-29. The location can't be beat for proximity to beaches (Kamaole II) and restaurants, shops, etc. The unit is well set-up with everything you need for the beach (chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc.) which was greatly appreciated as it saves you from buying these items and then leaving them behind (as we have done when staying in hotels). The condo was clean and well maintained as were the grounds and pool area. We really appreciated the fact that is was a ground level unit since we were travelling with an infant and hauling a stroller up and down stairs can get old, and the fact that the lanai extends into a grassy area gave us ample room to relax close to home if the baby was down for a midday nap. We had read other reviews and were aware that due to it's location to both the neighbouring restaurant and condo's recycle/trash pick up some noise can be expected when the truck shows up. Because we were aware of this I don't knock any points from the condo but be warned that it might surprise you the first morning (as it did us). It was also nice to have Hope check in with us throughout the stay to see if there were any concerns or requests. All in all, the value can't be beat and the location is superb.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate your time in writing this thoughtful, honest review! The garbage pick ups are early here on Maui, that is for sure. I would love to have you back in the future, so keep me in mind!

Fun family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two weeks at Melanie's Condo at KKN. We loved every second of it! The condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen, and pool/beach gear. We spent many hours across from the condo at Kamaole II (just right across the street from the condo) snorkeling and lounging on the beach; we even saw a turtle sunning itself on the beach on one of our trips! The condo is roomy and has a large TV (if your spouse loves to watch football as much as mine does, you know that's important!) the Netflix access is an added bonus. The furniture is nice and the bed is comfortable. Hope (the property manager) sent treats and cards over a few times while we were there to say hi and check in on us- so thoughtful! You really can't beat the price for what you get. During our stay the AC unit kicked the bucket, but Hope and crew were very quick to get it up and running again. I definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is traveling on a budget, and anyone who's not for that matter! I would come back in a heartbeat. With the lows in the teens and the highs in the 40s, I'm wishing we were back already. Until next time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We have completely replaced the Air conditioner after your stay. Although the temps here in beautiful Kihei, Maui have been much less in need of A/C:) Hope to have you stay again on your next trip to paradise!

The condo and office were excellent. The place is located next to many good food places. Kihei is the quiet side of the island at night, but all places are pretty close. The beaches are sandy and swimable.

Absolutely Amazing! A perfect paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We really can't recommend this apartment enough! We spent 17 nights here and it was absolutely perfect.

The condition of the apartment is flawless, it has been maintained like a true home. It is also very conveniently located (only yards away from the beach where turtles can regularly be seen when snorkelling!).

The items provided in the apartment (snorkel gear, cooler, beach chairs/umbrellas, kitchen utensils, boogie boards & others!!) make your holiday that much easier!

The apartment hostess is very helpful, regularly providing us with key information about the island as well as providing treats ;)

I will be recommending the apartment to friends & family and hopefully returning ourselves in the near future!

Fantastic first stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic first time in Maui. Hope and Melanie contacted us before we we even left and gave us some great tips to start out. Much appreciated. The condo is really well located and very well stocked with beach gear. For ten days the four of us just brought a carry-on each. The pool was large and fantastic for the kids. It's a really nice unit and would not hesitate to stay there again. Thanks!

Tips: Walk up to S & Q's shave ice shack for your morning iced coffee. Don't bring much. Laundry facilities are right by the pool. Do your laundry, go for a swim.

Ideally located across the street from world famous Kamaole Beach II. We really enjoyed snorkeling with sea turtles from the beach a short distance away near Wailea.

There is also the Maui Ocean Center in Maalaea harbor for up close viewing of sea life.

Or catch a glimpse of them right from Kamaole Beach!
