SWAYING PALMS, GOLDEN-SAND BEACH, AND THE WARM PACIFIC JUST FEET FROM YOUR DOOR

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Thank you so much for considering Hawaii, Maui, and Hale Kai O’Kihei for your vacation. With so many wonderful and exotic holiday destinations to choose from, the Internet bringing access to them right to your home, and vacation time and dollars so precious, we appreciate you taking the time to visit our site.

In finishing, furnishing, and maintaining our apartments 208 and 203 (www.vrbo.com/241190), we started from a simple premise: what do we like about where we stay when we’re on holiday? Whether we’re doing a home exchange, staying in a reciprocal private club in another city, or in an apartment or condo booked through VRBO, we want a place that speaks to intimacy and individuality.

We don’t like cold, impersonal, one-size-fits-all experiences, where the bare minimum is what’s provided. We want to stay in places where our needs are important, where our time spent travelling to the destination and the cost of getting there is understood and appreciated. We want to stay in homes and apartments where the human touch of the owner abounds — where the owner’s attention to detail and focus on our experience are always top of mind.

It’s all about passion. Your experience with us needs to be exceptional. From the moment you walk in the door, we want you to experience an ocean-front home away from home that is warm and welcoming. Perhaps it’s the colours, the cleanliness, or the carefully selected artwork. Maybe it’s the fresh flowers and wine, or the L'Occitane en Provence toiletries. Or perhaps its one of the dozens of other little touches — like the beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, binoculars — that make arriving and getting started on your time off and time away just that much quicker and easier.

We spend a great deal of time listening to our guests and tailoring our efforts to their needs. The personal touch infuses all that we do, and that passion is fuelled each time a guest returns, or recommends our apartments 208 or 203 to family members and friends.

Again, thank you for choosing Hawaii and Maui, and for considering our apartment 208 at Hale Kai O’Kihei. We’d like you to stay with us, and experience our efforts to make your stay exceptional and to keep you coming back, whenever work schedules, family commitments, or the need to ‘just get away’ allow.

Now, information about what awaits you at Hale Kai O’Kihei and apartment 208 . . . .

If you're looking to stay in one of the nicest oceanfront apartments available at Hale Kai O’Kihei, then you've found it! And whether you are staying in our Unit #208 or #203, Hale Kai O’Kihei offers the Hawaiian experience you've dreamt of.

If “perfect” is the best word to describe the location of Hale Kai O’Kihei — on a palm-tree bordered golden-sand beach on a quiet residential street off busy South Kihei Road — then “stunning” is the only word to describe Unit #208, a fully renovated, no-expense-spared one-bedroom oasis on the second floor of this Kihei beachfront jewel.

From gorgeous cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen and bath with silent closing drawers, elegant granite kitchen and bath countertops, Kohler fixtures, Grohe faucets, exquisitely designed and tiled shower with glass block and found-pebble floor, virtually seamless 18” x 18” tile from the front door to the outer edge of the lanai, top-end appliances including flat-glass cooktop, ultra low-sound dishwasher and compact clothes washer . . .

. . . to a work-of-art ‘glass wall’ to the lanai with feather-light centre-opening doors, a peaceful but high-efficiency Fujitsu Halcyon 18,000 BTU split air conditioner, and yes, even an electric sunshade on the lanai allowing full-lanai use and ocean views, even at the height of the afternoon sun . . .

. . . and backed by only the highest quality and thread-count linens and beddings for refreshing tropical sleep, unit 208 builds on the perfect beachside location of Hale Kai O’Kihei and puts you in the picture in one of the most luxurious and fully outfitted units this jewel of a building has to offer.

And when you add this stunning unit to the perfect location? The Hawaiian experience you've dreamt of, matched by few other units in HKOK.

Relaxing in unit #208 on the second floor of this beautiful Kihei beachfront property, the stress and pressures of hectic Mainland life are all but forgotten. Offering privacy and calm amid the sight, sound, and feel of gently breaking waves, swaying palm trees, and soothing ocean breezes, Hale Kai O’Kihei, with just over 50 units on three floors, delivers South Maui’s best boutique accommodation and oceanfront experience.

Enjoy the ocean view from your private lanai. Walk across the lawn beneath the swaying palms to swim in the warm, breathlessly blue Pacific. Stroll the quiet and largely undiscovered beach and return re-connected and renewed. Linger in the pool taking in the green lawn, the golden-sand beach, the Island of Lanai, and the sky that goes on forever. Watch the sunset from the warm sand at the edge of the beach, the palms behind you, the future and all its possibilities directly ahead.

This one-bedroom, second-floor oasis will be your ‘home away from home’ with all the amenities you will need for the Maui vacation for which you've been waiting. And Kihei, located on the sunny, southern shore of Maui, is only 20 minutes from the airport in Kahului.

This is one of the very nicest units in HKOK, and offers you the Hawaiian experience you;'vie dreamt of. But have you checked out the calendar only to find that apartment #208 isn't available for the period you'd like to visit? Don't worry! Just have a look at our listing for HKOK 203 at www.VRBO.com/241190 -- and check the calendar for your chance to enjoy an exceptional Maui experience from our second apartment, itself one of the two very nicest available in this lovely property on the ocean's edge.

About Adam Leamy, Owner

We're like many of the guests we've met at Hale Kai O' Kihei over the years -- we've got demanding jobs, and put a lot of effort into our work. So there are times when we just want to get away from the stress for a few days, and get to a place where living is just easier, the demands less.

That philosophy guided our renovation and redecoration of our home in Hale Kai O’Kihei #203 when we purchased it in 2008. And the same approach influenced the additions and touches we've added to this stunningly renovated unit #208, which we purchased in 2011.

We've added more “Maui” colour though a restfully exotic paint palette, thoughtful furnishings, finishings, and appliances, and additional locally sourced vintage Hawaiian artwork. We don’t like to pack too much when we come to Hale Kai O’Kihei, so those hassle-saving details from 203 have been added to this unit as well, from snorkels, fins, and masks, boogie boards and beach chairs right down to binoculars and tropical CDs.

We’re always learning more about what makes a stay at Hale Kai O’Kihei an outstanding experience for ourselves and our guests. And with #203 and #208, two of the nicest units in Hale Kai O’Kihei -- itself the best in boutique accommodation in South Maui -- we’re perfecting the delivery of the Hawaiian experience that we and our guests have dreamt of!

So join us in the great Maui adventure at Hale Kai O’Kihei! Come and visit and discover the Hawaiian holiday of your dreams!

Adam Leamy, Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Adam Leamy, Owner chose Kihei

We’ve been visiting HKOK since 1997, and bought #203 in 2008. This remarkable place, and the experience it offers, gets in your blood. Departures for us and our guests aren’t the end -- they’re just the start of planning for the next trip. And that’s the best way to finish a holiday -- making plans for the next one.

Each time we visit, HKOK delivers. Sometimes we’re doing errands and chores; other times, we’re true ‘guests’ ourselves, relishing the chance to do blissfully, decadently nothing. Just taking in the sights, the sounds, and the beauty of it all. And the great thing is that it’s all there, visible from the private lanai or for direct interaction by way of a few paces across the lawn, through the palm trees to the beach.

In March 2011, on a beach walk from HKOK, past the oceanfront estates on Halama St. through Kalama Park, and over a coffee at Kihei Caffe, the decision was made to buy a second unit. Why? Because in a world of sometimes wearying change HKOK is a welcome, restorative constant. And therein lies the HKOK charm: Shopping and services are a block away and those farther afield run the gamut from Macy’s to Tiffany’s. For us, the real draw continues to be this simple delight: Once we get in the door of #203 or 208, and put our groceries away, we're set, and can experience much of what we want from Maui, even whale watching, from our own lanai or our own front yard and beach.

The lure of Maui’s beaches, restaurants and places to watch the world slowly go by remains. But units 203 and 208, uniquely renovated offer a wondrous Hawaiian experience, all day long -- one many of us dreamt of in childhood on ‘sick days’ in colder climes, when game-show hosts Bob Barker or Tom Kennedy whisked winners away to Hawaii, affording us all a Technicolor glimpse of this exotic paradise.

Sitting on the edge of the beach with a glass of wine, long after the sun has disappeared? Still a star-gazer's paradise, and an awesome way to end any day.

What makes this condo unique

We love walking the beach first thing in the morning, before the sun peeks out over the edge of Haleakala, when ours are the first footprints in the sand.

We love the way that in the mid-morning, the water just off the shore is dead calm, and is as many shades of blue, blue-green, and turquoise you can count.

We love watching the horizon out past the shallows, where the water turns a deep, alluring blue, when the breaching Humpbacks send plumes of bright white spray into the air.

We love the midday when beach walkers and sun bathers take a break from the waves and the sun, seeking shade and sustenance, and a quiet falls over Hale Kai O’Kihei.

We love the mid-afternoon awakening when the wind picks up, the waves are more playful, drawing windsurfers and kite surfers to the shore and the challenges beyond.

We love the late afternoon, when the sun accelerates its race for the far side of Lanai and the lawn is a velvety canvas of yellows and greens, set against the dark slope of West Maui to the north, and a still-clear sky speaks to the promise of stars and far-away dreams to follow.

We love when the sun finally winks out behind Lanai, and those who have assembled on the lawn and beach to watch its farewell hug, kiss, or squeeze hands, in that knowing gesture which acknowledges that this one moment, this one sunset, experienced together, was what called them to Maui, and which they will use, in the years ahead, as the touchstone to remember their trip here, and why it was so special.

And then we love when darkness falls, and the two of us head down to the beach, lie back in the sand, and take in the enormity of the clarity and depth of the wondrous night sky.

Owner's Response: I’m a worrier. When I started with our first apartment at Hale Kai O’Kihei in 2008, I wondered, “Who would find our apartment on VRBO, and feel so strongly that it was right for their needs that they’d travel such a great distance and put such faith in a stranger to deliver the most essential component of their stay on Maui?”
Some six years later, and now with a second apartment at HKOK, and having had the privilege and responsibility of welcoming close to 260 guests, I still have the worry. Providing accommodation is an onerous responsibility, and rightly so.
With each and every guest’s arrival, right down to the minute that they’re expected, a part of me acknowledges that “it’s show time”: All the preparations, considerations, all the purchases, all the supplies, the arranging, all the little touches and nuances — and in no small way, the efforts of our on-site team who have the last critical look that is all in order before they close the door for it next to be opened by you — come together for that crucial moment where, your flight landed and your arrival at Hale Kai O’Kihei completed, you open the door and step across the threshold to your Maui home . . . and deem your trust in a stranger to have been worthwhile.
Many years ago, like you, our arrival at HKOK was after sunset. Tired after a long trip, we settled in, and went to bed. Michelle was first up the next morning, and woke me with an urgent whisper, “You have to see this!” She took me down the hallway, and immediately I heard and saw what she meant: I could hear the waves gently breaking on the beach, could see those lovely palms, and the gorgeous blue Pacific right in front of us. We were right on the ocean’s edge! Right on the beach! On Maui! Us! I’ve never forgotten that moment, how special it was to us, and I know how special it is for guests, too.
We wondered if you’d have the same early morning revelation we did. And then arrived your lovely, kind note, penned early on your first morning. It’s not the job of guests to make me feel that the effort is worthwhile, but for this worrier, your note made all the difference in the world.
The generosity that prompted you to write is, I suspect, but one of the reasons you find yourself there, celebrating your 25th anniversary. Delighted for your achievement, I hope the rest of your stay on Maui, in every good way possible, marks the continuation of the grand partnership and fine journey you’ve experienced, together. Adam

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing experience at Adam's place so I will try to keep this short.

We came to Maui on our Honeymoon and were delighted to arrive at a pristine apartment with a BEAUTIFUL view. And not only that, Adam had a bottle of champagne waiting for us! The first thing I noticed was how amazingly equipped this place is. It has EVERYTHING you need from kitchen tools, to beach chairs/umbrellas/snorkles/etc. to toiletries.

We spent every sunset on the Lanai taking in the sunset as it is possibly the best feature of the whole place. The condo is totally redone and everything is thoughtfully designed from the beautiful kitchen to the lighting of every room. Again, I can't stress enough how well equipped this place is with extremely high quality stuff. If you're coming to relax, it's a great place to be. We really were only here during evening and nights, but it is also a great place to spend the day.

In regards to the location, Kihei is the perfect home base on Maui. We were gone all day exploring Maui and found that we were in the best spot to cut down on travel times between the North and South. And the beauty of staying in Kihei is that it has the best weather on the island along with beautiful trade winds that roll in every afternoon.

I would recommend this spot to any friend or relative coming to Maui. We were very happy with our decision to stay here, a beautiful place where you have everything, and to avoid the touristy spots where it takes away from the beauty of Hawaii in my opinion. Furthermore, we saved so much money by staying here that we were able to stretch out on excursions, great dinners (definitely recommend Pacifico's!) and general fun.

So thank-you Adam for a great stay and overall experience!

Best,
Adrian and Aleks

Owner's Response: You know, in addition to providing accommodation, were I also the editor of “Hawaii Magazine,” or with the Maui County or State tourism agencies, I’d be delighted to read your note each and every day. Surely your experience of Maui, Kihei, Hale Kai O’Kihei, and of your apartment is precisely what we all live and work for in the different roles we’ve taken on, and the common purpose we share to provide guests with an exceptional Hawaii experience. Your note will be just that kind of touchstone for me.
What readers won’t know, is that the morning of your first day, you sent me an email. I cannot tell you how much that note meant to Michelle and me as, here we were, almost 20 years after our first visit to Hale Kai O’Kihei, receiving a note expressing exactly the same delight we felt upon our first morning on our first visit, after arriving after dark the night previous. No texting then, no email, and no one to call, really, we just kept pinching ourselves — we simply could not believe we’d found such a place, right on the ocean! Us! In Hawaii, on the beach! And you found it, too! Rest assured that our delight for you was as great as the delight we shared ourselves all those years ago. Michelle and I are still talking about your wonderful email received that morning. An unexpected reminder that delight and wonder abound. Best to keep an open mind, then.
Anyone reading your note would, I think, quickly pick up that you are the very best sort of travellers; that you bring a joy and delight, and a keen sense of adventure to your journey, and that somehow, you leave far more behind than you take.
And that bodes well not just for more grand adventures, but a journey for you, together, of the strongest and most enduring quality. And on that path, we wish you both the very best of travels! Adam

Perfect quiet location, perfect condo and very attentive owner

  • 5 of 5
I knew from the moment we booked this place that we would be assured of a great stay. Adam the owner contacted me within 1 hour and answered all questions that I had. Little did we both know that we had to deal with the onset of two hurricanes (Iselle and Julio). Adam kept us updated about the impending storms. Francine, the on site manager, did a great job organizing the facility and preparing for Iselle. In the end, we ended getting 2 hours of light rain with 40 mph winds. For those concerned about hurricanes for future bookings, I can tell you that Kihea is located on the leeward side of the island and both Haleakala and the big island protect Kihea well.

The condo is stocked to the max with everything you need. We packed the car for day trips and just kept everything in the trunk. This included the beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and the cooler. During the mornings and evenings, we left the sliding doors and screens open to view and hear the ocean. Midday, we had the AC on.

Shopping is located within 2-5 blocks of the condo. We did the majority of our shopping at Safeway. Make sure you bring the discount card with you for tremendous savings. We ate breakfast in the condo everyday and most of the time had lunch while we were out. Typical lunch bill with two beers was around 30.00 for two. We are not into "fine" dining, so most of our evening meals were around 50.00-70.00. Gas was 4.37. We rented a Nisan maxima from Dollar for an amazing 253.00 for two weeks. So far we put about 500 miles on it. Needless to say, we did lots of exploring. We liked "eye of the needle". Lahaina was nice for shopping and restaurants. If you plan to drive the " whole western loop" be advised that it turns into a one lane road on the edge of sheer cliffs. You will be forced to back up or pull over to let people through. I felt our Maxima was too wide for this trip, but we did survive.

Our favorite beach was "big beach" located in Makena park. We liked most of the beaches to our south. Just drive along until you see one you like. Most drivers are very courteous and laid back. We did the rode to Hana in one day. It helps to keep your windows open and honk your horn on some of the tight corners. Lots of food stands to visit! We watched the sunrise and then rode bikes down from the Haleakala volcano. In my opinion, that was too early to get up. We had to be at bike place at 3 am.

We would not hesitate to recommend this condo and Adam the owner!

Owner's Response: What a thoughtful insight to so many of the practicalities of enjoying Maui and Kihei. Michelle and I saw many of our experiences reflected in your tremendous note, and I think others — whether it’s their first visit, or a welcome return — will benefit, too. Demanding jobs, and busy lives with family and other commitments make travel time, i.e., down time, precious. Anything that allows us to quickly master the fundamentals of a place so we can spend more time on the unique and wondrous aspects of a location and ensure we recharge our batteries, and freshen our perspectives along the way, is invaluable.
It’s the ‘thoughtful’ aspect of your contribution to Maui that I want to expand upon. You’ll know, as will guests who have visited us before, that on each of our lanais in both apartments, hangs a hand-carved mermaid. The carver is Jac, and he and his partner Tricia, in Virginia Beach, are each gentle souls. We looked hard and long to find the right mermaids, and the right carver. Mermaids are funny things; carved by the wrong hands and, well, they’ll provoke embarrassed stares more than they’ll inspire appreciation and contemplation. Jac is a skilled craftsman and gifted artisan, and he has created the perfect mermaids — evocative of delight and wonder; each has this expression upon their countenance that bespeaks optimism about that which lies ahead. They each face west, looking out over the blue Pacific; they’re very special to us.
As you and I phoned, texted, and emailed on the tracking of Iselle and Julio, and what action you’d take to keep yourselves safe, up popped a text from you advising that you wanted to bring in each mermaid from the threat of the storm; the one on your lanai and the mermaid in apartment 203. And you did, purchasing the tool required to effect the removal. Then, after Iselle moved out to sea, you replaced the mermaids to their watchful positions.
A thoughtful, considerate, and kind action, for which we are deeply grateful. Thank you.
Yes, your note conveys helpful information to those contemplating a Maui visit. Some might simply let it go as that — the recounting of one’s experience. In fact, it’s emblematic of a caring, thoughtful, and empathetic nature, and that, to me, is at the core of the elusive and, all too often, ephemeral, Aloha spirit.
Please return to Hawaii and Maui, and I hope, to Hale Kai O’Kihei. Visitors like you make this place so much more than a lovely location on the ocean’s edge. Adam

Another five-star visit!

  • 5 of 5
This is a gorgeous, top-end apartment, with every comfort we could have wanted. Like last year, we stayed in both your places at Hale Kai O’Kihei and were delighted that we’d booked a year in advance in order to ensure we had them this year, too. We’re doing the same right now for next year — others have clearly discovered the effort you put into making a stay in your places perfect in every way. Our review of your other apartment says it all, and our experience here was exactly the same — the L’Occitaine toiletries, the fresh flowers and Prosecco that greeted our party’s arrival, and the superb sheets and towels you provide are just some of the features that set you and your apartments so far apart from others, and make a stay with you a perfect, unbelievably amazing Hawaii experience. We can’t wait for next year, our third stay with you!

Owner's Response: I cannot tell you how thrilled I am when guests discover Maui and Hale Kai O’Kihei and fall in love with both. I’ve written elsewhere in this section, and in responses to comments on our other Hale Kai O’Kihei apartment, that even after almost 20 years of visiting Maui and HKOK, and being able to visit when I choose, I find, remarkably, that I also tend to live more than a little vicariously through each guest whose travels plans bring them to this lovely part of the world and so very special property on the ocean’s edge. I suspect that’s why we tend to put a lot of focus on the nuances, the little touches that respect the very special places that Maui and Hale Kai O’Kihei are, and in so doing, make our apartments themselves very special places in which to stay and through which to explore all that surrounds, on water, in the air, and on land. I am delighted that you’ve found your muse in Maui, and that we’ve helped to make the accommodation component one that hits a high mark; we’re thrilled at your discoveries here, and are honoured to have you back again. You are always welcome.

Another beautiful day in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Yesterday I saw a sign in a shop that said 'Paradise Found'. This is how we feel about the location of this condo and property. We are currently sitting on the Lani watching the fifty plus swaying palm trees, the blue turquoise water and the sound of the waves hitting the beach. This is Ouellet paradise - where we come to destress and heal. We have stayed at this property about 15 times now and have been fortunate to stay in this condo four times. We can sit here anytime during the day and NEVER get tired of the view or the sounds. Sitting on the lanai with a glass of wine, listening to some Slack guitar music on the stereo and watching the sun set is a perfect end to the day!! Thank u for your beautiful condo and also to the resident manager for maintaining the grounds. Perfect paradise!! We feel very blessed and are most grateful to be spending three weeks here this year and it won't be our last!

Owner's Response: How wonderful it is to find a place that, in its location, beauty, and its impact on our well-being, draws us back again and again. For some, Hale Kai O’Kihei might be one of any number of places in which to secure accommodation on Maui. For others, though, it is much more, as captured by your statement that HKOK is a special place where you come to de-stress and heal. I think, sometimes, folks come knowing that’s what they need to do; other times, it’s what they discover after they arrive, when HKOK works its magic on them, when they breathe, when they realize just how much of a toll has been taken on them by the pressures and demands of life.

That you’ve visited HKOK 15 times speaks to the quality of the experience you’ve had here. It also speaks to the contribution you’ve made to all owners and staff — your presence on the property is never taken lightly, your return is never taken for granted, and the role you and guests like you who decide to return play in driving all of us to make improvements to apartments and the property cannot be overstated. You have shaped the Hale Kai O’Kihei that you’re enjoying today and that others will enjoy tomorrow.

There are many choices for guests seeking Maui accommodation, and we will continue to make improvements that respect you, and others like you, who seek and deserve so much from this lovely, wonderful place. While auto-correct may have taken a liberty with one of your sentiments, I think you were writing that ‘this is your paradise.’ It is, and we won’t forget it.

Your words — and your worthy reference to the stellar commitment and achievement of Francine our Resident Manager — will assist others in making an informed decision about something that is critical to getting the best from their Maui adventure: making sure they select the accommodation that in location and standard offers quality, care, and attention.

Yours is our 20th review, and the first we’ve received in real-time, written perhaps, while you were sitting on the lanai, taking in everything that is Hawaii. No small feat, that — seeing the palms sway, hearing the waves break gently, feeling the caress of the warm ocean breeze, and in the midst of it, crafting a thoughtful note that might assist others to experience the same fulfilment. Thank you for 15 years of support for Hale Kai O’Kihei, for the privilege of being able to call you “our guests” for four visits, and for the inspiration you give us to continue to do better. Adam

A gently sloping sandy beach leads to rewarding swimming and snorkeling at Hale Kai O'Kihei (two snorkel sets are located in the bedroom closet), with low-tide opportunities to walk along the edge of the reef and experience small, beautiful aquatic life.

Notes:
Lutron lighting switches control overhead lights in the bathroom, hallway and kitchen, allowing you to set the light level to create the right mood -- set the preferred low-light level, and with one tap, soft lights come to life for a romantic, spa-like atmosphere; with two taps, full brightness. Tommy Bahama “Pineapple Lane” fan with mahogany blades in living room, and Casablanca 'Capistrano' fan (also with mahogany blades) in the bedroom will evoke South Seas thoughts, while gently caressing with cool air. Outside, a lovely beachfront lawn, dotted with palm trees links you to the beach and blue waters beyond. When you want a break from the sun, but want to stay close to the water's edge, you can move your supplied beach and lounge chairs under the shade of rustling palms to read and relax, with the waves, whales, and horizon always in sight, and the beach just steps away.
