Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Hale Kai O’Kihei Walkway Update (July 10)

The tiling has started and it looks to be a lovely addition!

The breezeway between the parking arena and the pool deck is still to have its surface removed in preparation for tiling there, too. This may interfere with access to the laundry facilities, but I suspect that based on the rate of progress — and how fast debris is removed — the access won’t be hindered for long.

As always, our resident manager Francine has kept on top of site cleanliness and care, and as soon as the contractor has completed an area, Francine has worked her magic, rendering any residual signs of their presence virtually invisible. The sidewalk upgrade is limited to the parking-area side of Hale Kai O’Kihei; the ocean side and the pool are unaffected, and are being enjoyed by all.

The project remains on-track to be completed by mid-July, while I'm on-site: Life has intervened on our visit, as it still often does, and this time, it's Michelle who needs to be back on the ground, at home. She leaves today.

A communications error at the Board level meant that owners were not advised that this work was starting, or its schedule. This meant which meant a surprise to guests, as well as caring owners, when it did. Our guests showed kind understanding and gracious acceptance of our compensation measures. Sometimes, while you might not be able to manage an issue, you can manage your response to it, and every one of our guests has been terrific. As have those who have chosen to stay at Hale Kai O’Kihei with us since we’ve started providing these updates.

In other news, we’ve been fortunate to create a relationship with L’Occitane products. Starting with guests arriving this month, guests will now be able to experience some lovely L’Occitane verbena natural skincare and bodycare products supplied for their use. And I have to say, our L’Occitane verbena liquid hand soap, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are a perfect and elegantly fragrant addition to each suite. What a lovely way to end a day at the beach, or to prepare for the day’s adventure ahead!

So, all’s quite well in the walkway-improvement effort, and the noisy part is largely done. The quiet, delightful, and rewarding part where new tiles are installed has started, and the beauty of this boutique resort property is taking another big, progressive step.

Neither of us is happy with Michelle's departure today, but as we're both still very busy with work, that's the way of it. Still, we've accomplished a great deal in ensuring both suites are equipped and renewed to provide the exceptional guest experience we’re committed to delivering. I can also say with great satisfaction that Hale Kai O’Kihei and its grounds are clean, so very green, and in every way stunningly beautiful and peaceful, as befits an ocean-front respite. We purchased the first apartment in 208; the second in 2011. Never have the property and grounds been so well attended to.

A high point of this visit was our enjoyment of the sunset from both apartments a few days ago, after several days of renewal and attention to details in each, assessing how each greets the eye, and meets expectations. I think a great credit is owed to our many guests — their use and enjoyment of the apartments has been sensitive and caring: these apartments still sparkle, ready to deliver the exceptional experience promised.

I'm going to sign off for a few days, but will re-emerge if there is new news to report on the walkway-improvement project. I was up at 4:45 this morning, had a good long run down south, and was back in time to to enjoy morning coffee with Michelle as the day started to unfold. A sad day, with her leaving, but for all others here, surely one of the most peaceful places to be found, with nothing falling upon early morning ears than the welcome, restorative sounds of waves gently washing ashore, the morning birds greeting another day, the blue Pacific right in front, and all that’s possible just out there at that horizon.

_____________________

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 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 its possibilities directly ah

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

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.

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.

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

HONEYMOON HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We would like to express our sincere appreciation for making your condo available so people like us can experience the wonders of Maui. Our getaway Honeymoon was perfect. Thank-you for the Hawaiian flowers and champagne — most thoughtful — and we so enjoyed them. The condo was so beautiful and warm that we felt so very at home. Thank you for the tips on places to visit. We explored every one...truly beautiful. This is the most memorable vacation ever.

Owner's Response: What a delightful title — “Honeymoon Heaven”! Those two words give us all a moment’s pause, and in that, perhaps allow us to put things in perspective, or to strike the balance that keeps us going. Yes, there’s much in the world that troubles, and which requires our thoughts and actions. But in that world of complexities, the good and nice things in life — the things that bring comfort and a smile to us all — are also unfolding, as they should. Sometimes we can forget to notice them; other times they’re simply overshadowed, but they’re there. That you made the commitment to each other, to experience together the promise that lies ahead, that you travelled all the way to Hawaii and Maui, and that you found honeymoon heaven along the way restores us all, and I thank you for the reminder that good and fine things are happeing all around us.

And to the core of your review, I say this: No, the pleasure was all ours, and we’re the better for our experience with you and for sharing in this so significant event in your lives. How you treat others, and interact with them is a good measure of how you also treat each other. Michelle and I know you’ll have a grand journey together, and hope your travels take you far and wide, with similar affirmative impact on all whom you encounter. And if these new adventures should bring you back to Maui? Well, please know that you’ll always have a home with us at Hale Kai O’Kihei. Thank you so much for staying with us. Adam

WONDERFUL AND EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I researched Maui accommodations for several months before finally deciding to reserve HKOK #208. Many of the reviews from previous guests helped cement that decision. From our first e-mail with the owner, we were even more confident we had made the right choice. Adam was very communicative and attentive to our questions. The invoicing and payment processing were very professional and secure, furthering our confidence even more.

Once we arrived, we were so happy to see that the condo was exactly as described. Updated, clean, well decorated, kitchen essentials, beach supplies, etc. It is a lovely and comfortable place that definitely gives you the "home away from home" feeling. The view from the lanai is beautiful! And we were lucky enough to be there during whale season (thanks for having two pairs of field glasses in the condo!). We saw whales several days while we were there.

The condo is very centrally located for easy access to all of Maui. This was great for us, as we tried to cover the entire island (hiking, biking, scuba, surfing, running, exploring, etc). Convenient shopping is near by, along with numerous local and chain restaurants. Surf and scuba shops are not far away and the marina is a short drive as well.

Adam's customer service was truly top notch and I mean that sincerely. We loved our stay from the start to finish.

In a world of online reviews and feedback, I think the most telling is: "would you recommend this property"? My wife and I both agree the answer is YES! We would recommend this condo to family, friends and anyone searching on VRBO.

Thanks for a truly great place to spend our time on Maui!

Owner's Response: Look, I’m not going to dance about this one: Man, did you folks do Maui the way it’s supposed to be done! You came, you did, you left, and somehow, the Island just feels a bit, less, without you there. As we went through the booking process, we shared some good emails, so it wasn’t a surprise to me that we exchanged a few during your stay. And I have to admit that I shared a few of your day’s plans, or well-turned phrases, with colleagues and clients. By the end of your visit, after you’d gone worryingly quiet for a few days, I actually had a few folks call and email, asking, “Are they OK? What’s new with them? “What’s on their agenda today?”
The truth is, folks think we’re there all the time. And you’d think that’s the case. But we're still in the thick of it with work, so when we do get to Maui outside our vacation, it can often be just for three or four days to make sure all is the way we think guests would like it. Then back home, and right back at it. So I do tend to live vicariously through the fact that guests are there, enjoying themselves in that gorgeous place by the ocean’s edge. Turns out, others do, too, when good guests are doing it up right!
In a week of some rainy spring weather here, after months and months of rainy winter weather before it, your quick notes on your adventures were an absolute delight. Let it be said, you did Maui well, and I’m delighted you chose to stay with us and that we and Hale Kai O’Kihei were 'home' for your Maui visit. I think you created some grand memories for your first trip to Maui, and that is precisely the way to do it.
And if your travels should bring you back our way, you’d be most welcome at Hale Kai O’Kihei, and with us, too. Very, very well done. Adam

A VERY SPECIAL PEACEFUL PLACE.

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting this location for many years. The building and grounds having never looked better is a lovely and deserving credit to the very hard-working pleasant person, Francine, who enjoys her work immensely.

Our apt is clean with tasteful furnishings and a lanai which offers a wonderful view to the ocean.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. And for delving into the world of online participation!

Yes, "A very special peaceful place." Nicely put, and in a few short words, you've captured the essence and the power of Hale Kai O'Kihei.

And in that, one of the reasons we so look forward to your arrival: You’ve been making the trip to Hale Kai O’Kihei for many years, and, to me, guests who have visited often over the years have a keen eye for what’s working, and the progress that’s been made. And I think you are bang-on: Hale Kai O’Kihei has never looked so thoroughly lovely, cared for, and tended to.

Our Resident Manager, Francine, has not only renewed the building and grounds, but I think she’s rekindled in all of us the delight in a truly special and meaningful place we all found in our first visit, and that’s kept us coming back. And with new travellers discovering this beach-side paradise, we’ve found a good blend of guests seeking and finding the excitement and adventure that Maui offers, and who cherish the calm and tropical charm that has always defined HKOK, that always welcomes you home — when you’ve been away for months, and when you’ve just been out for the day.

Others may be different, but for me, the beauty of HKOK is that it offers everyone that which is required to meet their needs, and gives them the Hawaiian holiday they’ve dreamt of, or waited for. Whether you’re spending your day out and about Maui pursuing island adventures, or are confining your adventure to relaxing on the lawn or beach with that book you’ve been meaning to read, while the swaying palms and gentle easy waves test the writer’s skill in holding your attention to the page, Hale Kai O’Kihei is just the perfect place. We’re delighted that you choose to stay with us, and look forward to your return next year. Continued safe travels and good health to you both. Adam

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was a fabulous holiday, everything we were told.....and more. Nothing had been overlooked. From kitchen supplies to restaurant suggestions, it was just like home with a beach at your doorstep. Excellent location, within walking distance to supermarket and restaurant, with ample parking, and a quiet location. The beach is public, but felt like our own private beach. We checked out the other beaches, but why go further than your front door? We had a great trip out with Pacific Whale Foundation, but the view from our own lanai, with the in house high end binoculars, was equally as exciting.

Owner's Response: “Home with a beach at your doorstep” You have just described what we sought after our first trip all those years ago, before we discovered Hale Kai O’Kihei. Not across the street from the beach, not across the street and up a hill with no view of the beach. But a home with a beach at your doorstep. Beautiful, and exactly what makes Hale Kai O’Kihei the best place to call home, for all of us who are fortunate enough to visit Hawaii and Maui, if only for a holiday.
And you have absolutely nailed it in describing the beach; I am still amazed that when we need to get to Maui to clear our heads, that beach offers beauty, proximity, and the freedom from crowds and noise. It’s peaceful, mere feet from your door, and always seems to offer the right mix of pleasant, unobtrusive passersby and beach users, and welcome, restful solitude. It’s restorative that way, the beach at Hale Kai.
And the lanai! If you’re like us, there are more than a few days when it’s a bit of a chore to tear yourself away from four-hour morning coffee and the mesmerizing reverie provoked by the view of the ocean, the whales, that oh, so Pacific-blue horizon, and the sound of the gently breaking waves beyond the softly swaying palms.
Living in Victoria, we know that from many places in Canada (and the US, too), it can still be difficult to get flights to Maui when you want them; there are still many red-eyes. It’s why we make our two apartments easy to settle into, so guests can immediately start enjoying precious time on Maui. Should your travels bring you back, and should a visit include a stay with us, rest assured that we’ll continue to design, furnish, and equip our apartments with this in mind, so that every minute of your Maui holiday is the joy and delight you deserve.
A great note, and I thank you for visiting, and taking the time to share such important insights. Adam

Map

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.
