About Lisa Baskin
I love Maui and have been vacationing there for over 30 years. I have family members who have lived there for 40 plus years. I have seen many changes to the island over the years. Kihei has pretty much remained the same. It has a much more Hawaiian feeling, a truly aloha spirit, which is prevalent in south Maui. My dream has always been to own a wonderful ocean view condo on the island. I fell in love with the complex because of it's great location to everything! We literally leave our car in the parking lot and walk to the beaches, market, fabulous restaurants, cafes, movie theater, boutique shops, live music and the best shave ice on the island! The complex is all opened air and the nicest/friendliest people live and stay there.
Lisa Baskin purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Lisa Baskin chose Kihei
I have always loved Maui and dream of some day living there all of the time. I chose my condo because I would love to live in it throughout the year! I enjoy sharing it with others and appreciate the positive feedback that I have received.
What makes this Condo unique
In the winter you can see whales passing by from either of the 2 lanais. The sunsets are spectacular. Charlie Young is my favorite swim beach, there is a turtle crossing, and great snorkeling too.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This property is priced fairly and is located in a great area. However, there is a need for some attention in critical areas. Our family was eating our dinner on the lanai. After we finished eating, we couldn't move the slider door to return inside. My son, who is an amazing athlete, scaled down the second story, and came back in the front door to let us back in. The door after it closed became locked, for most this would be daunting. In addition, our last day, after driving to Hana and back, we could not enter through the front door. The keypad was malfunctioning.The handyman for this property was able to get in touch with the local manager to let us back in. Lisa, the owner is always available, and answers her phone. We were grateful for this action.
Great location and all the amenities
This was a perfect condo for our family of 5, including 3 adult children. It had a nice front porch to leave our shoes, large back balcony with a view of the ocean and table for 5, and all the necessary amenities inside. The condo was decorated very attractively with a beach theme throughout. We were able to walk to the beach, sushi, awesome breakfast. Parking was easy and we were also very close to the Kiehi boat ramp where we caught our snorkeling tour the first day. I highly recommend!
We stayed for 10 nights at the Shores of Maui, and honestly, easily could have stayed 10 more! The location of the condo is incredible...blocks from shops and restaurants as well as across the street from the beach. The view of the sunset from the pool area was worth the price of admission along. Breakfast on the lanai, overlooking the ocean and pool was breathtaking. We traveled with 3 adults and 2 young kids, ages 5 & 7, and couldn’t have been happier. This truly is a tropical paradise! The owner had boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella available for use and we sure enjoyed! My boys and I enjoyed watching for snails and lizards on the path between the condo and the pool! I could go on for days on this property! Mahalo Lisa! We had a great time!

May/June 2019 visit
This is a great property for families. We traveled with our two young adult children. The location is great with numerous shops and restaurants within walking distance, as well as beaches. The condo was comfortable and very well stocked. The decor is a little dated, but everything was clean and the space was perfect for our needs. Would definitely stay in this condo again.
Needs some cleaning. Not the best ocean view. Great location for walking and beaches! Good restaurants close by.
I'm so sorry you found the condo had cleaning issues? As you stated, the broiler under the oven needed cleaning, I have asked my cleaner to be sure to have it cleaned. As far as the views, I and most of my guests, find them stunning! The nightly sunsets over the ocean, as seen from the condo's lanais, are breathtaking.
Maui is the best!
Fabulous stay at Lisa’s place in Kihei - Condo had a great floor plan/layout. The big lanai’s were a bonus. Our beds and pillows were so comfy, lots of great places to eat close by (Kihei Café, Fabiani’s & ami ami’s) and very nice pool area. Charley Young beach was beautiful and a short walk away. Kids did surf lessons just down the street as well! Lots to do, lots to see ... a beautiful island paradise. We love Maui!
Thank you for the lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed my condo as much as I do. It is a great place in a wonderful location on a beautiful island.
I look forward to your return.
Wonderful snorkeling areas close by.
