About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our condo (Hale Kamaole #201) is located in one of South Maui's most popular resorts Hale Kamaole and has unobstructed views to the beach and Pacific Ocean. No looking over rooftops, between buildings, or through trees which is why we call it the 'Best View on Maui'!

Our condo is our home away from home and has been completely remodeled. We are located on the second floor (stair access only) with no one above you. It is a large open 2 level 1277 sqft (119 sqm) unit and can comfortably sleep up to six. It is fully equipped to ensure your stay is relaxing, enjoyable, and a great value. It has a full kitchen, washer & dryer, 2 bedrooms both with NEW king beds (one upstairs and one down), 2 baths and a separate loft area with two twin beds. TVs in living and bedrooms. Free wireless internet and free long distance calling to the US mainland and Canada.

If you enjoy the beach it is only a 30 second walk away! No need to drive your car and search for a parking spot. Just grab the keikis (kids), your towel, a good book, and walk across the street to one of Maui's nicest beaches and parks Kamaole III. We have boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, snorkels, masks, fins, and other beach items for your use.

Our location is a five minute walk to popular restaurants, bars, and shops. The boat ramp is a 5 minute walk too. Many of the popular aquatic attractions leave from here including the famous Molokini Crater snorkeling trip, scuba diving, kayaking, and other activities.

A $200 deposit is required to reserve the unit and will be returned within 7 days after checkout if there is no damaged or missing items. The total amount is due 60 days prior to your arrival date. To reserve, please send an email with your requested arrival and departure dates, name, address, and phone number.

Compare our view to others and see if you agree that we really do have the 'Best View on Maui'!

About Michael Wellborn

My husband and I honeymooned in Hawaii in 1987 and fell in love with the Islands. Maui turned out to be our favorite which is why we purchased our condo in sunny Kihei at Hale Kamaole. The grounds are beautiful, you are 30 seconds from the beach, and the view from our condo is stunning which is why we named it 'Best View on Maui'. We know you will enjoy your stay and leave with memories for a lifetime. Aloha, Lynn & Mike San Diego, CA

Michael Wellborn purchased this condo in 2008

Why Michael Wellborn chose Kihei

We have been to most of the Islands and Maui turned out to be our favorite. Kihei is a great town with a little of everything. Great beaches, a variety of resturants, shops, cinemas, grocery and drug stores, and not as 'touristy' as other places. You are 30 seconds from the beach at our condo and Kihei is always sunny.

What makes this condo unique

If you want to enjoy your coffee in the morning while watching the whales and the paddle boarders or watch the sunset every night from where you are staying our condo will not disappoint. In addition we have 2 beautiful pools, tennis courts, and barbeque islands for those of you who like to grill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was perfect! You had everything available that we needed; chairs, umbrella, snorkels, etc. Good location and a beautiful view. We truly enjoyed everything. We loved it and even with an 11 month old baby it was pleasant to go for a swim early in the morning. We are actually already planning our next trip. Thanks so much.

Best View in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas 2017and New Years 2018 at this beautiful condo. Besides the view being outstanding the condo was very clean and had great amenities. We could walk right across the road to the beach and there is a great pool and BBQing area. We will be booking this condo again on our next visit to Maui

Wonderful time at Maui Condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was very convenient to the beach. The views from the windows and porch were fantastic! We could watch the sunset from the condo every night!

There was a lot of traffic noise but the view and convenience out weigh this. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Maui Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The unit does have a great view of the ocean, however travel noise from the road does impact visiting on the lanai. With only AC in the bedrooms, it was extremely warm in the downstairs living/kitchen area even when we left the door open at night with both fans running. We were comfortable in the bedrooms at night, but very uncomfortable in the living space due to no AC. Perhaps we would stay in this unit during the winter months, but not in the summer!

Owner's Response: Aloha. I am delighted that you agree that we have a great view from our condo. I'm sorry that you were bothered by the road noise while sitting on the lani. Most of our guest are so pleased with our unobstructed view and evening sunsets that the road noise never really bothers them. Regarding the AC most of the condos in Maui do not have central AC because most islanders leave their windows open and enjoy the wonderful Maui breezes. On those rare days where it is not the usual pleasant 75 degrees we provide AC in the bedrooms and ceiling fans in every room to keep you cool. We hope to see you back in Maui soon. Mahalo!

Title of rental on target.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is right on the corner of the property, directly across from Kamaole Beach III. It was extremely convenient to walk across the street to the beach. You didn't even have to leave the condo to watch the sunset, although there is a big tree in the way of the sun so if you want to see the sun go down you need to go to the beach. I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. Since the buildings are old I expected to find some upgrades necessary, but the owners have kept up with the times. The bathrooms were updated and the kitchen was as well. The dish washer doesn't clean that well so we used it as a drying rack. You should be aware that there is no air conditioning in the main living area, which also includes the twin beds up in the loft. When the unit is closed up while you are gone it can get warm but once you open the patio door and the front door the cross breeze gets all the hot air out. This wasn't a big issue for us as we spent most of our time sight seeing or on the beach. There are some beach toys along with some masks, fins and snorkels. If you have five people like we did there aren't enough but they are cheap enough to rent for the week. Probably the best item for us were the beach chairs. Parking was always in front of our unit but I think we were a little early in the season so that may change later in the summer. The owner responded quickly with house key codes. Everything was clean and usable. The park across the beach can get busy in the evening with people coming to watch the sunset and playing their music loud but it was bearable. The unit is right next to the road so if you spend a lot of time in the condo you will have to deal with road noise. It's worse during the day and eases up in the evening. Getting to the local places along the trip was a short walk so you didn't hav to drive every where. 4 stars only because of the road noise. If I could give 4.5 stars I would.

Owner's Response: Aloha. I am happy that you enjoyed the view from our condo and its proximity and convenience to the beach and South Kihei shops, restaurants, and attractions. We too love the fact that you can walk to most of these activities. Thank you for the compliments on our condo remodel too! I see that you discovered opening the windows lets in the nice Maui breeze and quickly cools the condo down. We try to keep our lanai closet filled with masks, fins, snorkels, beach chairs and umbrellas but the inventory varies throughout the year which is why we ask our guest to please return the items after use. Kamaole III Beach and Park is a very popular location in Kihei to watch the sunset and people watch too. It's also fun to watch the traditional Hale Kamaole Conch Shell Blowers that perform each night at sunset. Ahhhh wish we were there now. Aloha! Mike & Lynn

Maui Trip

  • 5 of 5

The unit indeed has best view of the ocean in the complex. The location to the beach is perfect. It is conveniently located for side trips and sport activities. We definitely would like to comeback in winter to watch whales from living room and deck. Families with teenagers would love the loft. Several fan and ac units to keep place cool if needed. Several restutrants and grocery stores are close by.
