A classic plantation-style home built in 1926 is the premier accommodation on this large 1/2-acre property. This 3-bedroom, 1-bath home (with extra beach bath available) sleeps 6 comfortably. A separate studio is ideal for a couple. You can rent the house or studio, or rent them both for that large family gathering. If you need even more space, a 2-bedroom cottage which sleeps 4-5 sits across the courtyard. (See VRBO 41601). The Calendar on this site is for the main house only; email or call for studio calendar access.
This beautifully restored and charming plantation-style home will transport you to the charm of yesteryear with large and airy rooms, 10-foot-high ceilings, and ceiling fans in every room. The house also includes A/C for those really hot summer days. The studio, which has a separate entrance and private bath is very spacious and has vaulted ceilings, ceiling fan, and A/C.
The house, studio, and cottage are very private, surrounded by a mature hedge, shade trees, and palms. Even so, you're just a short walk to the beach or shops. The home has a private front-yard patio and BBQ area and a shared courtyard with hot tub and additional BBQ. Relax surrounded by lush mature palms and other tropical plants with a large Royal Poinciana tree towering overhead.
Kihei has some of the best beaches in the world. Neighborhood beaches are a 5 minute walk and public beach parks with facilities are about 1/4 mile away. The house is just 300 feet to the ocean so you can grab a mask, snorkel, and fins (provided as a complimentary service) and head down first thing in the morning to swim with the marine life. You’ll probably see large sea turtles while you snorkel. In the winter months, you can view whales from the shoreline as close as 100 yards offshore. Or grab a beach chair and a cold drink and take a very short walk to a private and sandy beach (suitable for small children). Kihei faces west so the sunsets here are amazing. If you’re looking for more excitement, take advantage of the multitude of beaches nearby for body surfing, surfing (you can take lessons at “The Cove” nearby), snorkeling, paddle boarding, or virtually any ocean activity you can think of!
The Town of Kihei
Kihei is a great tropical beach town and everything you need is within walking or cycling distance (cruiser-type bikes are available as a complimentary service). In fact, you may decide to just park the car. Kihei and nearby Wailea are also known for their fabulous golf courses. The property is just a couple blocks from Kalama Park, which has tennis courts, an in-line skating rink, a skate park, and play ground. Restaurants, grocery stores and souvenir shops are within walking distance.
