Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We bit the bullet and in 2010 went all out in creating a professionally custom designed spectacular unit! You will not find another unit like it in Menehune Shores, and especially the fact that it is 3 bedroom, all of Kihei. As you walk in, you know right away that the color scheme and decor are special. We moved walls and increased the sizes of both bathrooms, without sacrificing adjoining rooms, a big plus.

We welcome those who appreciate quality and comfort. The unit accommodates six, and as guests stay here, we are finding they want to return.

The unit is located on the ground floor in the center front of the building offering convenient accessibility from parking on one side and access to beaches, the manicured lawn, and the pool on the other. It is the closest you can get to the ocean to view and listen to the surf. A plus is that you are away from any road noise. As you sit on your own lanai, you are looking at the historic 16th Century Alii (royal) fishpond of Ko'ie'ie, and during whale season (Dec-Apr) you can watch the humpback whales in Ma'alaea Bay. You also view the islands of Lanai and Kaho'olawe and Molokini crater. From the lanai, it's a treat to step out at night and enjoy the starry skies.

The unit is outfitted with free wi-fi, a 54 inch widescreen TV, home theater/entertainment surround system with Blu-Ray player and Netflix access. The kitchen has been updated with modern high-end appliances, new cabinets and counters throughout, king size beds in two bedrooms and twins in the third.

Next door is the Kalepolepo Park and Beach, and then the Hawaiian Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary and Learning Center that offers talks on a regular basis. It is a very short drive to various restaurants, grocery shopping, plus a complete variety of shopping. Excellent golf courses are nearby. Tennis courts are within walking distance. The Pacific Ocean Center with a wonderful aquarium is a short drive away. You are centrally located to the whole island. You view Haleakala one direction and the Pacific Ocean in the other. It is a true Maui paradise!

Take a look at the pictures of the condo and of things to do while on Maui. Many of them were taken recently by a guest that stayed for a month, Gail Alcock, and we thank her for sharing those!

About Cheryl Peterson

Our family purchased this property when the building was being built in 1977, and we have enjoyed it ever since.

Cheryl Peterson purchased this condo in 1977

Why Cheryl Peterson chose Kihei

It is wonderfully located on the island for accessibility to Maui's major sights such as Hana and Haleakala plus many of the island's best beaches.

What makes this condo unique

We spend a lot of time right at the condo taking a brisk beach walk, playing games, swimming, snorkeling, enjoying the beach, playing shuffleboard or all piling in the car and going to a nearby beach to boogy board, and we simply enjoy being together in the wonderful warm weather and Hawaii atmosphere. We also like to take a day and go to Lahaina. That's an easy drive. Or we may drive to the top of Haleakala; we need to have brought our jackets for that one. Or, we may elect to take the infamous, beautiful, and extremely interesting 'Road to Hana.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 2 children and 4 adults had a fabulous 10 day stay at #115 during a family wedding in Maui! This spacious 3 bedroom unit is even lovelier than the photos indicate with a particularly lovely kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. It was also sparkling clean when we took possession! Thank you Richard! The first floor location less than 40 feet from the ocean was ideal for unobstructed views of the humpback whales, breathtaking sunsets and for falling asleep to the waves at night!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This visit is a return to one of my most favorite places and the third time to this unit; it's as charming as ever and I don't think there could be a more gracious and helpful owner. The location on the north edge of Kihei is convenient and yet quieter than the central part of town and yet is within 3 to 5 minutes by car to shopping & services. The condo is beautifully kept and decorated and, with its ground floor lanai, a beachfront paradise. From watching for whales, gazing at the sunset over the bay or listening to the surf, there isn't a more perfect spot to be than in this unit. Additional amenities include the fishpond just on the other side of the seawall with it's adjacent park of grass and shade, the NOAA Humpback Whale Sanctuary next door, and the ability to take beach walks in both directions from the door of the condo. I've never been disappointed!

Beauty and History

  • 5 of 5

It was a special treat to spend the week in a lovely setting with sunshine almost the whole time. To add to the enjoyment, the ancient Hawaiian fishpond directly in front of the condo helped to create a special ambience. With Winter wave conditions elsewhere on the island, it was great to enjoy the fishpond for quieter swimming along with a couple of turtles nearby and later, to learn about its historical origins from the Pacific Whale Foundation, conveniently located almost nextdoor!

There are multiple "water toys" for maximum beach enjoyment and personal, artistic touches along with the most modern of kitchen appliances and lovely decorating. The lanai (patio area) is a great gathering spot for watching sunsets as well as the adjacent lawn which would be a great place for watching little kids! Adding in whale season and seeing periodic "blows" made for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. That is great that you found your way to the Humpback Whale Sanctuary next door. It is very informative and offers talks on a regular basis. You are right also about the Ko'ie'ie Fishpond right in front that is nice for all ages to swim in and feel particularly comfortable about the little ones to play in, and it has a really nice sand beach. We welcome your return.

Location perfection

  • 5 of 5

If you want to awake to the music of the ocean and sit on your patio to watch the sunset, the location is perfect. Really, from the kitchen to the master bathroom the view is yours. Beach walks are outside your door and an ocean swim is always safe in the ancient "fish pond," even when the surf is too high elsewhere. Menehune is centrally located in Kihei for easy access to up country, Makena beaches, airport, or West Maui. It is right next door to the whale center and the outrigger canoeing for whale watching. I LOVED my stay in unit 115. I felt so connected to my Hawaiian experience.

Excellent Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent vacation spot for families of all ages. Our family recently spent a fantastic week at Menehune Shores. The condo is beautifully decorated and was very comfortable for the seven adults in our party. Must see, must do suggestions...The Hana Highway is an all day trip, leave early so you can stop and spend some time at Keanae (huge waves breaking over the lava rocks); Waianapanapa State Park (Black Sand Beach); Oheo Gulch (Seven Pools) and don't forget to hike through the bamboo forest at Kipahula, Haleakala Nat'l Park. Snorkel at Molokini Crater or at any of the public beaches near Wailea. During our snorkeling we were able to hear whales sing under the water (we captured the audible on a GoPro underwater camera). Rise early and watch the sun come up from the condo's lanai with a cup of fresh ground homegrown coffee from Ka'anapali Coffee Farms; look for the Pioneer Mill Smokestack in Lahaina, check out the MauiGrown Coffee Company Store for free coffee sampling. While in Lahaina, check out the Banyan Tree which takes up an entire block, shop the many shops along Front Street ending at Bubba Gumps for dinner (be sure to sit close to the waterside for views of a beautiful evening sunset). Morning is the best time to see the turtles feeding along the fish pen walls out front of Menehune Shores; and the rooftop of Menehune Shores is the best place to see the sunset followed by a chorus of conch shells (or Pū) saying goodbye to the day and mahalo. You will not be disappointed...this is an awesome place to spend your vacation. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Nui Loa for a wonderfully written review!! You have done such a nice job of describing the fun things you did. You did a great job of getting around Maui, and now you have shared that for all who may read your review. And you prove that Menehune Shores is a perfect location to be able to do that! Thank you for finding us and we look forward to your return.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks at Menehune Shores, and it was fabulous! Unit 115 is wonderful - comfortable beds, enough room to lounge, and all the amenities, including things you need for the beach. The view and sunsets can't be beat either! The beach and Menehune pond that are just steps away are nice for families with small children or anyone who wants a low-key beach to lounge on. It is also a great place to stay even if you don't have small children. The hot spot for kite surfing is just the next beach over (they are fun to watch right in front of the condo), and it is conveniently located such that anyplace on the island is accessible by a reasonable car ride. I easily give it 5 stars! LOVED it!!

Menehune Shores is in a wonderful location, central to sightseeing and not far from the airport. It is a perfect place to be able to go up to Haleakala or to drive around to Hana. It is near Wailea for golf and to great beaches for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and having beach time. Great restaurants and shopping are nearby, too.
