Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

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.

My Favorite Place EVER to stay in Maui!

  • Submitted: Dec 17, 2010

I've been going to Maui many years and have stayed all over the island. A few years ago I settled on Kihei because of the "at home" feel. Everyone is so friendly and helpful in Kihei. I stayed at Diana's condo 17 delicious days--it's my favorite place ever! You can hear the ocean from the master bedroom as well from the lanai and living room. The Royal Mauian sits right on the ocean--all that separates you is a beautifully manicured lawn. You can decide to go the beach to the right--Kamaole Beach I--or to the left--Kamaole Beach II. They are my favorite beaches in all of Maui--never crowded and full of friendly people.

Diana's condo had everything we could ask for--high end appliances and wonderful cookware, dishes, blender, mixer--even a bundt pan! I cooked Thanksgiving Day dinner and had more than I could ask for to prepare the meal. There were even lots of spices. We didn't sit at the beautiful granite bar and stools to eat--we always sat on the lania and enjoyed the wonderful view.

Diana has lots of beach stuff--plush beach towels, high end beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, balls, boogie boards, noodles, and sand castle building stuff.

The condo has lots of very nice towels, sheets, blankets, etc. The washer and dryer work great too!

You won't be disappointed...Diana's place at the Royal Mauian is indeed a piece of paradise!

You will not be disapointed!

This was my first time renting a private condo and I have to say it was a fantastic experience. The communication with Diana was outstanding and everything was as featured. I have learned to book trips/travel based more on travellers reviews and tripadvisor as I find them to be more accurate. You could not ask for a better location! You walk right out of the building and you have a beach on either side of you, the convenience is perfect! This condo is beautifully renovated and has all the comforts of home. We packed snorkle gear, beach towels, coolers, DVD's, books etc. only to arrive to find they had all of this, right down to beach bags! The kitchen had everything you could need (including ice maker) and the televisions and DVD players in each room and IPOD dock and internet connections were a bonus. There was also free long distance calling to the US and Canada. I can honeslty say that I have travelled a lot so my expections are high and this condo did not dispoint, they had literally thought of everything. We arrived late and our check into the condo was seamless. The view from the lanai and bedroom is outstanding and a visit to the rooftop patio is a must. If you are travelling to Maui, I highly recommend this location and unit. Thank you allowing us to stay! We mostly cooked in the condo so I can't recommend many restaurants but I was a bit disapointed with the Wailea luau (although it is close and convenient). Hope this helps if you are considering this condo.

Great stay with wonderful views!

The view from this condo is gorgeous. Wonderful to watch the sunsets. Condo is nicely appointed with about everything you could possibly need. Not large, but spend all your time on the lanai. The rooftop deck with the grills and tables is a very nice feature also. The pool was quiet and comfortable great access to beaches and the water. Like the kihei and wailea area - plenty to do and access to wonderful restaurants. easy access to the rest of the island. Would definitely stay here again.

The best condo in Maui

We had the pleasure of sharing 10 gorgeous days with another couple at Jack and Diana's beautiful condo in May 2010. My wife and I have been coming to Maui for over 30 years and even shared ownership of another condo in Kihei for 17 of those years. We have always loved Kameole Beach 1 and wondered what it would be like to stay at the Royal Mauian right ON that beach. Well, now we are totally spoiled, this was by far the best place we have ever stayed at in our 30+ visits to Hawaii. The pictures don't convey the sense of luxury we found staying here, the view and sounds of the ocean from nearly every part of the unit enhanced our stay. We made use of the beautiful and wonderfully equipped rooftop barbeques about 4 times. The unit was stocked with everything we needed and plenty more! The location and parking were very convenient to everything. The communication and information from Jack and Diana was always prompt, useful, and courteous. I can't recommend a stay in this condo enough. By the way if you go, don't miss seeing Willie K, a marvelous local musician who plays at Mulligan's on the Blue in Wailea, his beautiful voice, unbelievable guitar mastery, enthusiasm, and humor are a must see. Thanks so much for our short time in paradise.

WOW! We stayed in this beautiful condo for 12 glorious nights. The views are breathtaking. My husband is a Veteran, on crutches, and both showers are walk-in. We were finally able to give our friends the Master Suite. Thank you Diana and Jack.

We spent a week in Jack & Diana's wonderful condo and I can't wait to go back again soon! The photos are exactly what their home looks like, beautiful and comfortable. We sat on the balcony every day and evening and watched the turtles in the ocean. A better sunset view could not be found on the island. I highly recommend this condo.

We have stayed at the Royal Mauian several times in the past & this unit was by far the best - we loved everything about it & the remodeling could not have been done better. The view from the lanai is beautiful & we were able to spend every evening enjoying our dinner & watching the spectacular sunset - Mahalo
