About the property

Oceanfront Ground Floor 2BR2BA at Great Beaches. Across from Many Shops.

You fly thousands of miles to be at the ocean. So why not stay at Beachfront condo where you can walk to the beach in less than 1 minute! Many other condos are located across a busy street, a long walk from the ocean. This ground floor oceanfront condo went through complete renovation this fall. We are completing the project as we write. Check some of the new pictures!

Check the available dates on our calendar now. If dates are not available, check my other recently renovated ocean front units (VRBO#390074 or HomeAway#987523) or beautiful beachfront condo in South Kihei at Mana Kai. (VRBO #351904 or HomeAway #388061).

Dive boat leave from Kihei Boat Ramp. There are championship tennis and golf courses nearby. Many shops and restaurants located around the condo or in Wailea are very convenient.

About Tomoko Takami

Hello. I am Tomoko. I grew up in Japan, and I live in San Francisco Bay Area. I love to travel. I have visited many different places. But, Maui is my favorite place to be. I think you will soon discover why.

Tomoko Takami purchased this condo in 1997

Why Tomoko Takami chose Kihei

Oceanfront on the desirable ground floor. Beautiful swimming beach if in your backyard steps from our lanai. Many shops and services are located right across the street from our condo.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo at Royal Mauian is situated right next to one of the best swimming beaches in Maui. When I go, I enjoy sitting at our lanai eating, reading or looking at the Ocean. I love the morning walk by the beach. Kamaole 1 Beach is just steps away from our condo. Being on the ground floor, you don't have to take an elevator or go around the building. I also like to walk across the street to shop and have lunch or dinner. Nice not to drive everywhere. I hope you will enjoy our condo as much as I do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am sorry we have not written sooner to thank you and to tell you how much we enjoyed using your condo in September. It was everything we expected and more! Your suggestions and information about the island was a great help. We were really able to relax and enjoy the beaches and especially the sunsets... in fact we were all set to eat at several of the restaurants but ended up cooking on the grills on the roof and just relaxing at the condo. We have decided to return in a few years and would hope to stay at your condo again. I was a wonderful trip. Thanks again.

Ideal relaxing Maui experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The condo has felt like our very own beach house: plenty of comfort and convenience, the ocean at our doorstep (complete with turtles!), but no useless frills. Just our style! We made good use of the kitchen, the lanai and the grass and beach just outside. The natural foods store across the street, fantastic snorkeling only 15 minutes away at Makena, easy drives to the airport, Paia, the start of the Haleakala road and Hana highway, surfing lessons for the kids just a few minutes away, the many restaurants, the Aloha spirit of owner Tomoko and her right hand Keiko during our preparations - I could go on and on about the factors that helped make our time in the Islands magical. Mahalo!

Lovely vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

It was everything that it said it was. The owner was friendly and flexible with our arrival and departure dates. The owner went out of her way to make sure we knew about all the area had to offer. The condo was well stocked with everything you might need to feel at home. The grounds are lovely. The sunsets are breathtaking.

We love the Royal Mauian!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was last in Maui in 2013 and just after this condo was renovated. We were dying to get back and when we arrived it was worth the wait! The renovation was amazing and the condo was as beautiful as ever. The ground floor location and view can't be beat. The condo location is great too. We can't wait to return!

Perfect Sunset views Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo is in great location in Kihei, walking distance to shopping & dining. The Royal Mauian also sits right between two great sandy beaches. Easy walk to either one. The unit has nice finishes throughout and the hosts have provided everything you will need. Washer/Dryer is in the unit. We used the rooftop grill one night to cook dinner, they have 4 nice new Weber gas grills, a full kitchen, and plenty of tables and chairs on the roof for guests use. Great views from up there as well. The best part for us was the ground floor location and the walkout to the beautiful lawn. The lawn is seriously like a golf fairway, really well maintained. And perfect location to watch the sunset, right on the lanai or out on the lawn. We will be back.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

The Royal Mauian is in a great location in Kihei, and this unit is perfect if you need 2BR / 2BA. Ground floor, only a nice grassy lawn between you and the ocean, killer views and great sunsets enjoyed from the patio (or lawn). We never used the pool (but it looked nice enough), opting instead for the short (less than a minute) walk to the beach for swimming. Before breakfast, we got into the habit of snorkeling right in front of the condo, seeing plenty of fish, turtles and eels. From the condo, you can walk to much of what Kihei has to offer (you can also drive to some of it, if you like). From this unit, you can also walk to another couple beaches that are between a couple minutes to fewer than 10 minutes away. Our family of 4 could not have been more pleased with our decision to book this condo!
