Overview

Kihei House Rental Photos and Description

House - sleeps 6, Studio - sleeps 2-4

Welcome to Plantation Bungalows Maui – a place where time stands still for a few days! Plantation Bungalows, with 2 separate, private vacation rentals offers ultimate flexibility very close to Kihei's beautiful beaches.

HOUSE: Sleeps 6 in beds; 1 Full Bath; $295-$375 per night; See VRBO Calendar (House availability only)

STUDIO: Sleeps 2 in beds; 1 Full Bath; $115-$145 per night; Email for Calendar for Studio

BEACH BATH: 1 Full Bath, common to all units

COTTAGE: Sleeps 4 in beds; 1 Full Bath; $150-175 per night; VRBO listing #41601

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.

Beaches

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.

Amenities

Cable TV; DVD player; wireless Internet (Wi-Fi); home entertainment system for iPod/iPhone/iTouch devices; A/C; fully equipped kitchen; dishwasher; microwave; washer and dryer; hot tub; BBQ; premium mattresses; extra Beach bathroom (shared); off-street parking

Beach toys and other amenities: ocean kayak; chairs; mats; cooler; boogie boards; snorkels, masks, and fins; beach towels; bikes; tennis racquets; Bocci ball.

If you don't see your preferred dates, please call or email us. The calendar for the main house is displayed on this site. Contact us for studio calendar access. We look forward to sharing our Aloha Spirit with you!

Mahalo nui loa,

The Holmes Family

About Kristin Holmes

Our family; my brothers and their wives own this delightful property together. Each of us appreciates the quality, character and the sense of place that is evoked from this property.

Kristin Holmes purchased this house in 2011

Why Kristin Holmes chose Kihei

Our family has roots on Maui dating to 1883. This home and the setting captures an era that speaks to us in a way that you can only experience. It reminds us of the carefree lifestyle associated with the islands.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite comment is that you'll feel like you live here...even it if is just for a short time. We love it when our guests share how much they appreciate staying in a home rather than a condo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had the pleasure of spending four days at this lovely home in Kihei. Beautifully furnished and decorated, it was also very clean, comfortable and relaxing. It was close to the beach and to tons of restaurants, grocery stores and shops. I stayed in the blue bedroom with twin beds, which were very comfortable. It had a huge closet, and a private outdoor area for relaxing and unwinding. My only regretis that I didn't have time to use the hot tub! I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends who are interested in visiting Maui. It would be a great option for a group of friends or a family to stay at.

Plantation Bungalows

  • of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Plantation Bungalows. There were nine of us (6 adults, 3 children) in the main cottage and studio and were very comfortable. The nearby beaches gave us great access to the warm Hawaii surf especially with the use of the equipment supplied by our hosts. We hope to be take advantage of the accommodation again in the near future and highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing visit to Maui.

Exceptional Find!

  • 5 of 5
What a quaint amazing rental in Kihei! This property is perfect for families or a group of friends, the three bedrooms easily accommodate up to 6 adults easily. The kitchen is full size, which we enjoyed and were able to save $$ by preparing the majority of meals at the house. The property manager was delightful to work with and was very responsive to any questions or concerns we may have had, and even checked with us to make sure everything was just perfect, which it was!!

Excellent choice for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I rented the studio during the time the rest of our family stayed in the plantation house. We were all so pleased with how it worked for our group & how comfortable the outdoor spaces were for relaxing & dining. The main house has been lovingly updated (kitchen) & maintained throughout respecting the original architecture.
The studio while separate & of more recent construction was nicely decorated & equipped with everything we would have needed if we chose to be an entirely separate party. There are lovely porches & private spaces so that guests can find their favorite spot to sit with a book, beverage or have an intimate conversation. Each night we had lovely dinners around the common outdoor table in the courtyard enjoying the comfort of the trade winds cooling & calming us after hot days at the beach. We especially enjoyed the shower room & bath accommodation near the courtyard. Also we had many fine memories of mornings & afternoons gathered together on the plantation porch talking story. Very convenient & much used by all of us! It would have been nice to have use of the spanking new bicycles for trips to the beach if we had stayed longer & were more ambitious. Access to the water was just a couple blocks & a comfortable walk for an easy entry swim which we did many times. Mahalo for all the loving touches and your kind attention during our stay. We will be back again!

Plantation Bungalow , Kihei, Hi

  • 5 of 5
THE BEST ALL-TIME FAMILY TRIP. Our 5th trip to Maui and this hidden treasure of a house is our favorite. This house is lovely, warm, safe, roomy, comfortable and generously supplied. The neighborhood is quiet and we enjoyed sitting on the big beautiful porch at the end of each day. We will return. Mahalo Kristin and to the Holmes Family....we could't have wanted any more!
