Searching for 'Paradise?' You've found it! A perfect Condo, ON a perfect beach, on the perfect island. Maui's sunniest corner enjoys more than 300 days of sun each year. Kamaole One (#8) is located on the secluded end of Charlie Young Beach, which the locals consider to be one of the finest on Maui. From the lanai you can view the islands of Lanai and Molokini. It's ideal for swimming. Snorkeling, and boogie-boarding. A four mile walk along the beach takes you to the luxury hotels of Wailea.
This is not your typical condominium complex. Kamaole One has only 12 units, and they are all right on the beach. Second floor units such as ours view the ocean through two stories of ceiling to floor, wall to wall glass. The view is equally spectacular from the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and lanai. You not only see the ocean but you can hear it. It would be impossible to find a deluxe hotel room this close to the beach.
Our kitchen has all the amenities for gourmet cooking. We also have an electric grill on the lanai. We have a large flat screen TV in the living room. Wood floors in driftwood white are used throughout the unit including the kitchen and bathrooms. The loft master bedroom boasts a double sink vanity with hollywood lighting and corian countertops and shower, three way mirrors, ceiling fan, and the same sweeping views of the beach and ocean as seen from the lanai.
This is our home and we are looking for individuals who will appreciate the peace and beauty of our home and who will leave it exactly as they found it. A maximum of four adults may rent our unit- no children allowed. Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the Condo or lanai.
Great getaway. Lovely condo with beautiful well equipped kitchen. Comfy beds. Location is awesome. No rental car needed if you are a good walker. Kihei has fun restaurants and bars. Beach steps from condo is awesome. Great place to getaway from it all. Looking forward to coming back.
This was our 5th trip to Maui and it was, by far, the BEST place we have ever stayed. This beachfront condo is located on one of the best beaches in Maui; and we know because we always go to different beaches during our stay. We love that there are only 12 units which keeps it more quiet and private than larger complexes. The designated, covered, close parking spot (which is included in the price) makes loading the car for day trips and grocery runs very easy. The layout of the condo gives a spacious feel and the wall of windows facing the beach makes the most of being a beachfront property. We enjoyed breakfast, cocktails, sunsets and just lounging on the lanai with the absolute perfect view. The central air worked very well; it was quiet and set just enough to keep the humidity down, but not too cold. This condo is very well stocked. The kitchen has everything you need, all the appliances, big and small worked well. There's an electric grill on the lanai. Having a FULL size washer/dryer makes doing laundry quicker and easier. We really appreciated the great quality beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels. The bed is very comfortable and being able to look at the beach from the bed every morning was a great way to start the day. Thank you, thank you for the hand held shower heads and great water pressure; we rarely encounter those on vacation. We love Kihei because we can walk to all the shops and restaurants and great beaches and staying at this condo made it 10 times better. Thank you for making our 25th wedding anniversary vacation perfect. It truly made us feel at home as if we lived there, which is a great feeling. We'll come back again and again.
I highly recommend this delightful vacation destination! It had everything we could have wanted in a beachfront condo, just like the description promised. Our first impression was of relief that we had found such a perfect place. Our unit was on the second floor of a small (12unit) building. The reserved parking spot was directly across from our condo making it very accessible and convenient for carrying baggage or groceries. The condo itself was spacious, bright and immaculate. From the back entrance door you walk directly across the high ceilinged room to the sliding doors leading out to the lanai, giving it such an indoor/outdoor feeling. The lanai is where we spent so much of our time watching the incredible beauty beyond...pretty gardens, white sand,rolling surf.
The condo had all the conveniences of a beach holiday, fully stocked kitchen with modern gleaming appliances, open living room area for meals or reading, clean bathrooms with amenities and lush towels, large comfortable beds. I particularly liked the loft bedroom overlooking the lower level providing privacy and a greater sense of space. We found it all so well designed, we preferred mostly to cook our meals at home enjoying them on the lanai rather than going out.
The other very attractive feature for us was its central location. Mornings could be spent walking down the white sandy beach for as far as you could see, or heading out on foot onto S Kihei Rd to visit local markets and shops or restaurants if desired. So much to do, although sitting out on the beach under the warm sun was hard to beat.
We hope to revisit this wonderful place soon, to savour once again Maui's best!
The location and condo where really nice. The beach was really great. However, the air conditioning did not work and even with all the windows and doors open 24/7 (which I wasn't really comfortable with) it was still 82 degrees inside. It was cooler outside than inside!!! It was very hard to sleep, especially with a sunburn! I contacted the owner the day after we arrived and b/c it was a Friday a repair company could not come until the next week. She said they would come on Tues but did not need access to the unit. We happened to be there and they did need into the unit. They were in and out for over 2 hours and still could not fix it. It was an inconvenience that the a/c did not work and also hanging around for 2 hours while workers were in and out of our bedroom. They wanted to come back the next day with more workers but it was our last full day and we didn't want to spend it inside while they were trying to fix it again. Other than this problem the unit was nice and right on the beach which was very nice. I would recommend this unit to a friend ONLY if the a/c was in working order. As it was WAY too hot inside and not comfortable.
What a beautiful property & unit! Small, quiet, intimate, but spacious and airy. A perfect location on one of my favorite beaches on Maui. This condo had everything we needed for a week of blissful ocean breezes and relaxation. The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable. Nice towels in the 2 bathrooms as well. Kitchen utilities fully stocked, we wanted for nothing. Covered parking too, much appreciated on hot, sunny days.
Every day we walked downstairs right onto the Kamaole One / Charley Young beach and enjoyed the surf & sun. This beach has sweet waves but also an easy incline for those with trouble getting in and out of the water. It's a great place to walk especially at dawn or dusk, peaceful, serene. On our laid back days we'd sit on the lanai, sip cocktails fresh from the blender and watch all the action. Swimmers, dogs, kids, surfers, paddle boarders, outriggers and everything Hawaii right in front of us. That included the whales playing just off shore (winter only). The unit has a convenient washer/dryer combo and central AC, but we liked opening up the windows to let the trade winds through. It's also close to shopping and some great restaurants. Free wifi worked great, flat screen TV in the living area, small electric BBQ grill on the lanai (George Foreman style), ceiling fans, two story views of the ocean, etc. Across the beautiful green ocean front lawn there's also a nice outdoor yet private shower for when you come up off the beach. Very picturesque all around. My only complaint, the drapes could have used a cleaning, but everything else was immaculate. Open those drapes to take in the spectacular sunsets while sipping a Mai Tai or Lava Flow. Perfect.
The owner was very responsive via emails & phone. The listings photos don't do justice to the property, it's even better in person. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a memorable getaway.
