Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description
Studio for two with 2 double beds, one minute's walk from the beach
If you love to swim or snorkel in the ocean, if you want to stroll on a beach as the sun sets, if you want to spend evenings relaxing in the on-site hot tub while not spending a fortune, then our well-equipped, clean-and-comfy condo at the Maui Banyan in Kihei, across the street from the Kamaole II Beach Park, is your ideal headquarters.
Our air-conditioned studio unit comes with all the beach paraphernalia you might want - beach umbrella, portable beach chairs, boogie board, beach towels and more.
You have access to all the Maui Banyan amenities, such as the tennis court, outdoor grills, two swimming pools, jacuzzi spas and more.
You have two double beds, a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, private bathroom with shower and a private lanai (patio).
You're within a 10-minute walk of at least nine restaurants - Mexican, Hawaiian, sushi, tacos, pizza, steak/seafood, Indian, natural food, a bistro/deli and more. (Indeed, so convenient is the location that some of our guests have managed quite well without a rental car.)
Maximum occupancy for the studio unit: 2 people. It is perfect for either a couple or two friends traveling together.
The unit is cool and quiet, with blackout curtains that allow you to sleep late, a lighted lanai where you can sit out on at night (without bugs!). The lanai is always shady and cool. With a ground-floor location, you won't need to lug stuff up and down stairs or wait for an elevator.
Daily maid service is available for an additional fee.
We have on-island management so you can enjoy a carefree Maui vacation.
We offer secure online booking with credit card or echeck and respond to all inquiries within 12 hours. If you select the 'Book It' option, please tell us about yourselves and your vacation plans so we can make sure there's a good match.

About Marcia Yudkin
We live on a lake in Massachusetts, where we swim every day we can, and were looking for a spot where we could swim other months of the year. Hawaii was the 50th state we visited and Maui turned out to be perfect for us. Our Maui Banyan location is across the street from the best swimming beach in Kihei - no rocks, expansive, manned by lifeguards 7 days a week. If you love to swim, bodysurf, snorkel or make sand castles, this is the beach for you. We love the fact that our unit is just a one-minute walk to the ocean, close enough to hear the waves when we are in bed, and yet far enough back from the road that traffic noise is not a major annoyance.

Why Marcia Yudkin chose Kihei
Maui is an island with many microclimates, and our location gets much less rain and less wind than spots even a mile or two away. We were lucky to discover the Maui Banyan on our first trip to Hawaii, and while we looked at many other condo complexes, we didn't see any others with its convenient unit layout, quiet tropical setting and unsurpassed beach access. Some more high-end complexes require you to navigate a steep hill to get to and from the beach or offer distant ocean views but no walkable beach access at all. Also convenient are all the shops and restaurants within an easy walk that remain open till 8 p.m. or later. Within the Maui Banyan complex, our location on the ground floor of Building F is perfect for visitors without the energy or ability to climb a lot of stairs, who want to be far enough away from the road to enjoy a good night's sleep yet close enough to get to the beach in no time. Whereas some Maui Banyan units get miserably hot because of their placement relative to the sun, ours faces north, so that the lanais stay cool all day, every day.
What makes this condo unique
Be sure to bring binoculars! During the winter months, you can see whales with the naked eye at the beach across the street; the binoculars show you the whales' antics more clearly. And you'll be entranced by the breathtaking sunsets at our beach. Almost every night, the sun turns the sky orange, yellow and pink in a dazzling display of nature's beauty. We have even swum with giant gentle sea turtles here. And it's a joy to observe families bonding over the construction of architecturally complex sand castles. You are sure to bring home a treasure chest of memories from your Maui Banyan vacation.
