Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)


Kindly consider our beautiful, spacious ocean-view Maui Kamaole condo, located on the sunny side of the island. We fell in love with Maui the first time we visited and we have been going back often ever since.

This gorgeous, newly-remodeled, air-conditioned condo is one of only six 1244 square-foot condos at Maui Kamaole! All other ground-floor condos are 850-1061 square feet. You can really tell the difference in the living room, which nearly twice as big as other 1-bedroom condos. The condo has two bath rooms, a newly-tiled private lanai with ocean-view & a private sunning porch off the bedroom. There is a comfortable, new king sized bed in the bedroom & a new queen sized sofa bed in the living room. Two fold-out cushion-style 'futons' & a fold-up playpen are also available. A 40', brand new HD flat screen LED TV with swivel mount can be viewed from anywhere in the living room and even from the lanai. The just-remodeled kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, garbage disposal, range, oven, dishwasher, blender, refrigerator and freezer plus all the dishes & utensils you will need. Barbecue grills are available at both pools & outside the condo. For your convenience and enjoyment the unit has a washer and dryer, 2 flat-screen TVs, free high speed & wireless Internet, DVD/CD player with bluetooth and phone with answering machine. Beach towels, beach chairs, coolers & boogie boards are all available for guest use, so pack light--this condo has everything you need!

See additional photos of the condo at the link below 'Owner Information.'

The air-conditioned condo is right across from the Kamaole III Beach Park & within walking distance of many shops and restaurants in Kihei and Wailea. Kamaole Beach was voted Kihei's top beach. Two sparkling pools and spas are available for your pleasure. Maui Kamaole is on the far south end of Kihei, right next to Wailea. Hi-rise buildings are not allowed on this side of the island. The condo is in a quiet area, so you will not be kept awake at night by noise and music from bars, restaurants or night owls that condos in central Kihei experience.

World-class, ocean-front golf courses are located nearby. Maui Kamaole has its own tennis courts on-site for your use. There are also public courts in Kihei. You can snorkel & dive in reefs & lava flows all along the coast in front of the condo. Turtles are EVERYWHERE! Learn to surf or stand-up paddle board at the Cove right in Kihei or drive to Paia or Hana to experience the big surf of the North Shore. Hike through thick bamboo forests with cascading waterfalls into fresh-water pools or take in the sunrise, sunset or moonscape at Haleakala Crater. Walk the ocean-front path that begins at the boat ramp in front of the condos & enjoy seasonal (winter/early spring) whale watching right from shore. The path stretches from the condo in South Kihei all along the beaches and Wailea resorts and ends at Polo Beach in Makena. Or simply relax at the condo and enjoy your own slice of Paradise. From the condo lanai (patio), we have watched whales breaching, boats sailing and outrigger canoeists paddling.

The beautiful Wailea Resorts & Shopping Village are nearby. Kihei has supermarkets, shops and restaurants, as well as a Farmer's Market selling local fruit and crafts. There are local grocery stores in Kihei plus Costco, a new Target, Wal-Mart and K-Mart near the airport. You will find excellent restaurants near the condo and all over the island. The resort hotels offer several gourmet restaurants. Or barbecue at the pool or condo & enjoy peaceful meals on the condo lanai.

Whatever you choose to do, or not do, you will love this spacious, beautiful, newly-remodeled, tropically decorated condo. Please contact me if you have questions or would like to book the condo.

Sincerely, Yvonne 'Sam'

About Sam

Our family fell in love with Maui the first time we visited the island in the 80's. We've been coming back ever since. Over the years, we bought 6 condos & have gradually sold all but our favorite one, Maui Kamaole I-117. It has the best view, is the most private and quiet and is one of only 6 Maui Kamaole ground-floor condos with 1244 square feet. All other 1-bedroom condos have only 1061 square feet. The extra square footage allows our condo to have large, square rooms, whereas other MK units have smaller, narrower rooms. We visit a few times a year and rent the condo out the rest of the time. My parents enjoy walking on the beach and relaxing and reading at both pools and on the newly-tiled lanai, where they can look out at the ocean and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. My siblings, nieces, nephews and I enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and diving all along the coast from the condo to LaParuz, surfing at the Cove in Kihei (and other surf spots around the island), boogie boarding and body surfing at Kamaole III beach, hiking throughout the island, sightseeing and shopping in Kihei, Wailea and Paia and exploring the island. As a family, we are scattered from coast to coast on the mainland, but we all look forward to wonderful family reunions in the Paradise that is Maui.

We also rent out our family cabin on pristine Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho. National Geographic named McCall #1 secret ski town for light powder skiing and families. The VRBO # is 372615. Check it out if you are looking for a mountain lake or ski vacation.

Sam purchased this condo in 1990

Why Sam chose Maui

We wanted to be on the sunny side of the island, away from the high-rise hotels and rainy weather in Kanaapali/Lahaina. The beaches in South Kihei and Wailea are some of the best on the island (See Maui Revealed--a great visitors' guide to the island). We enjoy being close to restaurants and shops without being in a noisy city. We enjoy the snorkeling, boogie-boarding, surfing and whale watching right in Kihei and Wailea. We love the tropical pool, sand-bottom jacuzzi and on-site tennis courts. And we adore being in a quiet, ground floor condo with a lawn and beautiful view of the ocean and West Maui Mountains.

We have looked at, owned and stayed in other condos, and ours is truly the nicest and most spacious we have seen in Kihei. We are fortunate to have bought one of only 6 ground-floor Maui Kamaole condos with the larger floor plan. Ours has as much square footage as the MK 2-bedroom condos and, because of the large, ground-floor lanai and lawn, actually offers MORE space than the 2-bedroom units! The sofa-sleeper and cushion-style 'futons' provide more sleeping spaces, so Maui Kamaole I-117 was a no-brainer.

Because Maui Kamaole has its own artesian well, the grounds are lush, tropical and immaculate. We love the morning calm. Just as the day begins to warm up in the afternoon, tropical breezes begin blowing to cool us off. We leave the windows open most of the time and rarely use the air-conditioning. The south end of Kihei is peaceful and quiet, yet within walking distance of shops and restaurants. We really feel like this is paradise.

What makes this condo unique

The best part of our condo is the view, the spaciousness, the privacy and the location. We love waking up to a beautiful ocean view and taking walks along the beaches. We often see whales right from shore in the winter and early spring. While we're drinking coffee and eating papayas on the newly-tiled lanai, the birds come begging for bread crumbs. Mornings are great for beaching it so we spend many hours snorkeling, boogie boarding, whale watching, body surfing, surfing and diving right in front of Maui Kamaole and all along the coast. Afternoons are for adventures--hiking to waterfalls, exploring the Haleakala crater, sea kayaking, tennis or golf. Shopping at the island-style boutiques and open markets is fun, too! Then it's happy hour on the lanai and barbecuing at the pool, bidding farewell to the sun with a blow of the conch shell as it sinks into the ocean (watch for the green flash), enjoying delicious island food in the condo and settling in for an early slumber so we can do it all over again the next day.

We owned Maui Kamaole condos in the A and G buildings and have stayed in other Kihei condos, but we enjoyed the larger floor plan, spacious living room, gorgeous view and quiet privacy at MK I-117, so we kept this one and sold the others. We recently learned that I-117 is one of only six 1-bedroom Maui Kamaole condos with this larger floor plan. It has 1244 square feet, which is as big as the 2-bedroom condos at Maui Kamaole! The ground-floor lanai and expansive lawn creates even more space to enjoy, which is perfect for our extended family.

We just returned from Maui, where we remodeled the kitchen and both bathrooms. It turned out beautiful, with quartz and quartzite countertops and mahogany cabinets. We can't wait to share it with you!

Spectacular place topped with a tremendous owner!

  • 5 of 5

After 3 times VRBO'ING in Maui we finally found a place and a time of the year that we loved (August). Sam, the owner, was a true delight to deal with. She replied to our emails in a flash and gave us all the info needed for our stay. Her place is fresh, bright and has a great Maui ecological vibe (supper well equipped). Our morning's breakfast were energized by the spectacular view of the ocean. Our favorite beach, Kamale III, is 2 minutes walking across the gorgeous condominium garden. At Kamale III we daily saw sea turtles gliding peacefully in the warm clear water. I personally loved the quietness of the place; I needed this moment away from freeways, busy work, and noise neighbors. Finally I can say that finding Sam's place was like find that mechanic, doctor, or dentist that you have been searching for years. Yes..we are that happy!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We really do love sharing our slice of paradise with guests, especially when they are as gracious as you are! You enjoy the same things we love about our condo, the peaceful, gorgeous ocean view, the proximity to Kamaole III beach park and ocean, the turtles and the birds. We plan to return in May and we are already counting the days. We are so glad you found our place and hope you will return soon!

Maui Kamaole vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days in this condo and it was our 1st time to Maui. I have to say it was the perfect vacation from start to finish. The first day I was up at sunrise and had not seen the view of the ocean from the patio as the sun came up it was a awesome view and wildlife sounds from so many types of birds. The central location of this property makes it perfect to maximize your Maui time. The condo is large clean and stocked well with beach towels chairs and books games etc. we can't wait to return. A big thanks to Sam the owner that took a lot of time sharing how to make the most of our Maui experience !

We hope you will return to Maui soon!

Just a note to say how much I enjoyed staying at this spacious and luxurious Maui condo. Everything from furniture to kitchen cabinets was up to date and beautiful. Much larger than the last condo we rented at a different complex. Owner was so helpful and easy to deal with. I will definitely be recommending this stay to my friends and relatives. Mahalo!!!

Beautiful condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Maui and because of this condo, it felt like home. It has everything you need during your stay: full kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, washer and dryer, and comfortable furniture! The condo also has beautiful pools and hot tub areas, grill areas and patios to relax by. It is also within walking distance of so many amazing sites! The beach and a great walking/running trail along the beach is right across the street! There are also restaurants within walking distance - my husband and I really enjoyed eating and watching the sunset while we sat at the outdoor tables at a little Mexican restaurant right down the street. I absolutely LOVED eating breakfast and drinking some coffee out on the lanai and watching the island wake up. The view is absolutely gorgeous no matter what time of day it is! Definitely an amazing experience and I will absolutely be renting this condo again!

All the comforts of home in paradise! This is an awesome Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family has the most magical Maui trip yet! This condo was perfect for us and our kids. The condo has an updated style, was super clean, and the Sam has thought of EVERYTHING. From island guidebooks to cups/wine glasses for use at the pool - there was nothing we needed after a quick trip to the grocery store. Our arrival and check in was easy, the location is awesome (right across the street from Kam 3) and there was easy access to walk to shops or coffee. We loved the easy access to the beach and saw turtles every day we were there!🐢 Sam is also great to book with because she is a wealth of knowledge on the island, and was great resource when needing suggestions for activities. I would definitely recommend staying at this condo! You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful stay, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Maui is beautiful and the condo is in the perfect location to take in all the sites. Beach across the street with huge turtles swimming next to us, whales to see in the distance, and spectacular sunsets that rival a fireworks display. The condo is comfortable, spacious, and well appointed. I love waking to the birds and sitting on the lanai with coffee and breakfast. The newly remodeled kitchen helps to keep travel costs low since we could eat in a couple days and make use of the grills.

I preferred the upper pool with its natural setting and tropical landscaping. Also took advantage of the tennis courts daily!

Great stay and will come again and rent same condo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for reviewing our condo. Glad you enjoyed all of the comforts and it sounds like you took advantage of all of the fun things to do close to the condo. We were just there in April & have never seen so many sea turtles! Some were laying on the beach right across from the condo & we saw more every time we snorkeled. We love to snorkel all along the coast. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review. Hope you return soon!

Pack light because this condo provides just about everything you will need to enjoy the island Paradise of Maui. We leave beach gear like towels, coolers, boogie boards, backpack beach chairs, sand toys, etc. in the closet for guest use. Enjoy the ocean-front walking path with seasonal (winter & early spring) whale watching that stretches from in front of the condo through Wailea and all the way to Makena. Hiking, mountain biking, zip lining, helicopter rides, sailing, cruises, an aquarium, world-class resorts and breathtaking views are all available for you enjoyment. The daily temperature doesn't vary much from 76-89 degrees, year round. A hat, sunglasses, swim suit, shorts, sun dress, sarong, sandals, light jacket/sweater/sweatshirt for evenings, sunscreen and a few t-shirts are about all you will need. We joke that you could arrive in Maui with nothing but a bit of cash & find everything you need at the ABC (convenience) store near the condo. Aloha!
