Experience a slice of heaven...
Bask in the breathtaking views and sounds of the lapping waves from the lanai, living room, and master bedroom. Fall asleep and awaken gently to the sounds of the surf. Sit up in bed and gaze over the ocean, as easily as if you were on the beach. Soak up the spectacular views of West Maui Mountain, the island of Lanai, stunning sunsets, humpback whales breeching (December - April) and sea turtles feeding close to shore.
This luxury 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 5th floor condo was completely remodeled down to the studs in 2009 with no expense spared! This condo is our pride and joy, and we are happy to share it with our guests-- Travertine floors and granite counter tops throughout, stainless steel, top-of-the-line Kitchen-Aid appliances, LCD TVs and DVD players in each bedroom, built-in entertainment center with Bose 3-2-1 entertainment system in great room, free high-speed wireless Internet, ceiling fans in each room, 2-zoned A/C, in-unit washer/dryer, glass block and Italian marble-walled showers in both bathrooms, double sinks in master bath, new designer furnishings and linens ...
But the irony is that you may not be able to pry yourself from the sights and sounds of the words-cannot-describe lanai.
The Royal Mauian is built on a lava pour, adjacent to long sandy beaches on each side (Kamaole I and II). The Royal Mauian features a heated oceanside pool, and newly renovated rooftop garden equipped with 4 brand new gas grills, fully equipped kitchen, and a stunning 360 degree view, which includes 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala and the most amazing sunsets on Maui! Do not miss the opportunity to grill and enjoy dinner here!!
Available activities are too numerous to mention, given Royal Mauian's superb location, just 2 miles north of Wailea with its renowned shops and Robert Trent Jones golf courses, and an easy drive to Haleakala summit and the unforgettable Road to Hana. Snorkeling is excellent directly in front of the condo, as well as numerous other places on the island.
We are Minnesotans who love to escape the harsh northern winters. We chose Maui as our vacation/ retirement home because it has great, dependable weather, exotic scenery and the constant sound of surf, no matter how calm the sea. Every time we arrive on Maui we are filled with the wonderment of an 8 year old arriving at Disney World. That feeling absolutely never fades, no matter how many times we return to the island! We feel homesick when we leave and count the 'DTMs' (days 'til Maui) when we are back in Minnesota.
Unlike many condo owners, who have the misfortune of only visiting their condos once or twice per year, we are fortunate enough to be able to stay at the condo every 3 months. While we are there, we completely re-stock the condo and make sure that all appliances and amenities are in perfect condition. From the well-stocked spices, kitchen staples, paper supplies, soaps, detergents, cleaners, dishes, high-end cookware, small appliances and kitchen gadgets to the beach chairs, umbrella, tent, mats, coolers, towels, boogie boards, hair dryers, DVD's, board games, high-end linens, etc, we are confident that you will not find a more fully-stocked or better-maintained condo anywhere on Maui. You will not feel like you are in a rental unit, but rather, staying in the home of good friends. We are delighted to be able to share our home-away-from-home with you, and would like to count you among the many guests who have become new friends and returning guests.
Kihei is nearly alway sunny, has spectacular sunsets with lovely views of neighboring islands, a ringside seat for watching humpback whales in December to April, and is close to virtually anything a person would want to do on Maui. The Royal Mauian is a well-maintained property, with friendly staff, and is one of the few places on Maui where one can fall asleep and awaken to the sound of the surf just outside one's bedroom window... (I'm homesick just writing this.)
Enjoy walking the gorgeous sandy beaches - they extend from about a half-mile north of the Royal Mauian to over 5 miles south. Along that stretch to the south, is an open-air bar at the 5 Palms restaurant, where a person can sit and enjoy a cold drink while contemplating life on the beach. There is a good deli (and other shops) just across S. Kihei Road. Anything requiring a car is generally no more than a 10 minute drive, but you can leave the car alone. The ocean, the beaches, and lounging on the lanai are the focal points of this experience.
