Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

HAWAII TAX ID#W15016390-01

Our Maui home has wide open ocean views, is steps from Kamaole I Beach and is packed with 'extras' to ensure your stay is all about comfort and R&R. Kamaole Beach Club is located in South Kihei, on Maui's sunny southern shore. Our location offers picture-perfect views of Molokini Crater and the islands of Lanai and Kaho'olawe. So much is within walking distance....some of the island's best beaches, great restaurants and shops. With the ABC store right next door and a natural foods store just up the street, you'd never have to get in your car if you didn't want to!

Our unique property is directly across the street from Kamaole Beach I. It's literally just steps from your front door until you reach the spectacular, soft, sandy beach. Kamaole Beach I boasts generally mild surf, and perfect conditions for swimming and boogie boarding. It's the first in a string of idyllic beaches that are renowned as some of the best on the island....and all are within easy walking distance of this condo! Because they are state parks, they're much less crowded than beaches with sprawling resorts lined up side-by-side that you'll find in other locations around Maui. Maui Dive Magazine recognizes Kamaole Beach 1 as having some of the best snorkeling on Maui. You can snorkel at two rock outcroppings at either end of the beach, where sea turtles are frequently spotted. During one of our vacations, we were thrilled when a monk seal decided to spend a day and a half on Kam I beach - it is one of our favorite memories of Maui. We've also spotted a family of rays, LOTS of whales with newborns, and many, many sea turtles while relaxing on the soft sand and soaking up the rays of sunshine. The lava rocks on either end of the beach offer great tide pools that are fun to explore at low tide. Lifeguards are on duty seven days a week at Kam I Beach.

Our two-story, corner unit is located in a smaller sized, low-rise complex that is surrounded by lush tropical gardens. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms the condo sleeps up to six,including the queen size sofa bed in the living room. If ocean views are what you are looking for - this is the place for you! Our condo has huge walls of windows in every room, offering amazing views of the Pacific Ocean.

Enjoy a glass of wine or your favorite refreshing beverage while you watch the sun set from one of two furnished, private lanai's (patios). Dine in or eat out? It's a difficult decision! With our fully equipped kitchen and new stainless steel gas BBQ's on property, it's fun and easy to prepare a meal on site. The dining room has large windows and a sliding glass doorwall that offers you amazing ocean views while you dine. Or, choose to walk to one of the many restaurants Kihei has to offer. There are world-class restaurants offering gourmet cuisine, as well as many casual, moderately priced eateries - all within walking distance or a short drive.

Choose our truly special home for your vacation stay and we think it will exceed your expectations.

Aloha and Mahalo!

About Linda Selbert

We searched for a long time to find the perfect place to call home during our retirement years. After vacationing on Maui many times, (and house-hunting each visit) we finally found it. This condo was the first that met all our criteria. At the top of the list were that it had to be steps to the beach and have wonderful ocean views.

We are excited to be able to share our future retirement home with others so they may experience Maui's feeling of 'Aloha'.

Make your reservation today and experience for yourself that what they say is really true.....'Maui No Ka Oi!' (Maui is the Best!) - Al & Linda

Linda Selbert purchased this condo in 2009

Why Linda Selbert chose Maui

'Location! Location! Location!' Awesome ocean views from every window. No peek-a-boo ocean views here! Have you reserved a 'beachfront' resort or a condo with 'ocean views' and when you arrive you find you have to walk down long hallways, take an elevator or steps up/down to ground level, trudge through the lobby, down long paths that wind through more buildings, etc. - and it ends up taking you FOREVER to get to the actual beach? We have! And that's why we were so thrilled to find a place that is literally STEPS TO THE BEACH. Less than 90 steps, in fact! And not only is our complex just steps away from beautiful Kamaole Beach I, you can easily walk to Kamaole Beaches II and III as well. All three are picture-perfect, beautiful beaches that offer mild surf, great snorkelling and the safety of lifeguards. The complex is also located such that a variety of restaurants and shops are also within easy walking distance. We love Kamaole Beach Club because of the smaller size in comparison to other developments in the area. It's steps to the beach, steps to the pool, and a short walk from the parking lot when you have to load/unload groceries and luggage. The condo itself is larger than most vacation rentals. With approx. 1,033 sq. feet of living space, there is plenty of room for the whole family! There are lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. A bus stop is convenient as well, making it very easy for older kids to venture out on their own. If you have young ones, it's so nice to have such a short walk back from the beach to the condo when it's time for an afternoon nap, lunch, or a dip in the pool. The location and features of this condo make it perfect for couples and families alike.

What makes this condo unique

Our home-away-from-home is located on Maui's south shore - which is often referred to as the sunny side of the island. Once you've vacationed here, we think you will agree with Conde Nast Traveler readers who have voted Maui the 'Best Island in the World' year after year!

None Better!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the island for 20 years, and have rented many places - ohanas, condos, as well as a house (in Maui Meadows). But Linda and Al's condo is THE BEST! If you are looking for a convenient location (anything you need is within walking distance), clean (Linda is meticulous), modern (updates always in the works), and comfortable (central A/C is a must for us) - this is the place! The beach is across the street, ABC Store is next door, Maui Gelato is a short evening walk (right after watching the sunset), and if you're hungry there's Cafe' Ole' (the blackend Mahi Mahi is outta this world!), Pizza Hut (next to Maui Gelato), a new Mexican eatery (same plaza as Pizza Hut/Maui Gelato), or Fred's (another Mexican place), or a short drive to Wailea to Monkey Pod or any of the restaurants along the hotel strip (Humu's is always our favorite). Seldom any rain - so you have a virtual guarantee of perfect weather.

Don't want to go anywhere? Sit on either lanai (of the dining room or the living room) and relax while you watch people or feed the Franklin birds (they'll eat out of your hand), and the mynas and cardinals. Out the lanai doors is the beach where you can watch the sunset, out the back door is the pool. How convenient is that? And oh, that Kuereg! Just like the one in the rooms at the Grand Wailea! Linda goes above and beyond as a hostess.

Hmmmm . . . maybe we'd better book it (again) before anyone else takes our favorite dates!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My self, husband, parents and 2 young children thoroughly enjoyed or stay in the condo. What an amazing place! Linda's condo is so comfortable, beautifully decorated and has all you need. The location is perfect! Right in the heart of Kihei, directly across the street from Kamaole Beach. At night you can hear the waves lapping on the beach. And the sunset view from the Lanai is AMAZING!! Great selection of restaurants & bars within walking distance. The pool was wonderful to have as well, especially when the wind picked up at the beach and the waves got to big for the kids play in. Already dreaming of our next trip back!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Took our four children (two teenagers) and two younger children for Spring Break. Wife and I stayed in Lahaina on previous visit and while I like to visit Lahaina, the area itself isn't the greatest to stay. The Kihei area is much more family oriented. The amenities were perfect. Kitchen big enough to make dinners or pack the ice chest with snacks. Short walk literally across the street to sandy beach area. Would recommend in a heart beat. We had a little snafu with the local manager but Linda was more than accommodating and did not hesitate to make things right. Almost a year later and looking for my next vacation but couldn't help to put in a review for such a great experience.

Great vacation in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Linda's condo for five nights in July. We were so sad to leave. The condo was just as described. Clean,neat and really cute. Linda added many personal decorating touches to make the condo feel inviting. We loved the efficient air conditioning, a godsend for hot humid July. We talked to folks at the pool who did not have air conditioning and we couldn't imagine sleeping without in in 90 degree heat.

The beach chairs and boogie boards were great and we even added two pool noodles. Sure it's close to the road but the proximity to the pool and beach more than makes up for that. So convenient.With the air conditioning on you barely hear the road noise.

The only thing we noticed that we would change is that for us the king/twin beds were not very comfortable. Too hard.Also a chest of drawers or dresser would be great for the second bedroom.

Maholo, Linda for allowing us to enjoy your island home.

Best Vacation in Maui for My Family from Philadelphia, PA

  • 5 of 5

After a very long trip from Philadelphia to Maui for our family, our entry in the condo was more than welcoming! The view from every window was great! My husband and 3 children commented on how great the accommodations were - everything we could have wanted or needed was provided and we did not feel as though we were on top of each other. The cleanliness of this condo was impeccable! The pool was great for the kids, and those also staying at the complex were friendly and nice. The location was great - we did many activities while on Maui - and the owner's left us much information and tidbits to help us make decisions, as well as be very responsive to all of our email questions. She even helped my husband contact the local Catholic Church (St. Theresa's) so that he could arrange for a surprise (to me) renewal of our Wedding Vows during Mass - the congregation and Father Watanabe made this a most beautiful heartfelt experience for us. The snorkeling and beach activities were great - everything we needed from chairs to boogie boards to sand toys and more was provided. When we did not eat at one of the many restaurants on Maui, we had every thing we needed in the very clean kitchen or at the grill to make great meals. We could not have asked for a better place. Our first night home here in Philadelphia and we miss hearing the pounding of the ocean across the street - we have so many wonderful pictures and memories. Thank you for allowing us to have the vacation of our lives!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 4 of 5

As soon as we walked through the front door we were very impressed. From all windows, you have a beautiful view of the ocean. The condo is well equipped with all the comforts of home. There is literally nothing we needed! You are located on a busy road, but the noise didn't bug us. There are some great restaurants located within walking distance, but we don't recommend Pizza Hut next door, it was a big disappointment. The ABC store next door is very convenient for little things, but pricey. Milk there was double the price at Walmart for an example, so beware. We had a fantastic time, the only negative to us is that the beds/pillows weren't very comfortable.

Linda is a very nice lady to deal with. We hope, someday to return to Maui and to this condo. Thanks Linda for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay - we look forward to your return! We had put new pillows in place in January and bought some on the advice of another owner who just loved the memory foam ones and she had such great reviews. We made the mistake of not sleeping on them ourselves as we put them in place and walked out the door for our flight home. I'm on island this week getting things for our summer guests and I have to agree that the pillows were not so great. Happy to report they have all been replaced and the new ones are great. Things like beds and pillows are a tough one for owners as everyone has their own preferences for hard vs. soft vs. somewhere in between. Hopefully you'll find things more to your liking next time around with the changes we'll be making in between now and then.
