Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, wifi, washer/dryer, pool, BBQs

Two bedroom, two bath, oceanfront condo: gorgeous ocean views are amplified by mirrors and invite the dramatic beauty of Hawaii into the comforts of relaxing at home. This non-smoking condo is excellent for families or two couples.

Menehune Shores is a peaceful, oceanfront condo on the ground floor close to the calm sparkling bay of North Kihei. Your patio overlooks the seashore, grassy slopes and over the ocean, along with a distant island. You will often see spectacular wind surfing and fantastic, dramatic sunsets. Humpback whales can often be seen from the condo December through April. In addition to this exclusive serene ocean view, the unit contains ceiling fans in each room, a fully remodeled kitchen and a washer/dryer in the unit for convenience.

Time at Menehuni Shores: ''It's a beautiful location with a million dollar view of the ocean and beach. You have provided everything that your guests could possibly need. The ground floor location worked out fine for the wheelchair. We have come home with great tans and feeling very relaxed and renewed. I hope we can use it again in the future...''

Menehune Shores Beach:

Menehune Shores is steps from the beach. There are no roads or buildings in the way of the gorgeous ocean view. The beach is calm like the bay, the water is shallow, great views, beautiful sunsets, and perfect for walks. This beach is secluded; you'll not see a lot of people.

About Michael Gach

I am an author of seven books on acupressure, which uses the same points as acupuncture, but I teach how to relieve stress and pain with your hands instead of needles.

My wife Barbara and I love Maui. We want our guests to fully enjoy Maui's beauty. I know Maui like the palm of my hand, and offer to give guests detailed guidance to find wonderful places and great restaurants.

We go out of our way to make our condos especially nice. For instance, we pay extra to have Hope host all our units. Hope does a fabulous job making sure that everything in the condo is clean and our guests have what they need. She is known to go out of her way to get our guests what they need and she does it from the heart with aloha.

Michael Gach purchased this condo in 2002

Why Michael Gach chose Maui

I fell in love with Maui in 1983 and vowed to always return. I actually wrote most of my books on this island, which fills me with inspiration.

I have always been gifted to have an eye for places and people who have potential for beauty and greatness. This is how I created and developed my healing school for over 32 years, and its also how I chose to buy this vacation rental.

When I enter the condo, I always get a overwhelming sense of peacefulness and a natural high from looking at the ocean view. This condo is positioned in a wonderful place, with a view that's straight down the beach. Its protected by the wind and the sun - the location is rather amazing to be steps from the beach.

The Menehune Shores building is curved like a horseshoe. Each condo has a very different location, feel, and faces a different angle. We are far enough away from the road, so you don't hear any traffic. We are on the other side of the pool and restaurant which makes it so much quieter and you do not get the smells of the restaurant.

I have been in units that are facing the ocean, which you would think would be better. However, these units actually face right into the harsh afternoon sun. Also, when I looked at the view, straight out to sea, I felt like I was on a boat. Seeing the coast line in our condo and how the gentle waves wash up to the beach is a picture I love to see.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is unique because of the beautiful oceanfront view, which is 'steps from the beach'. Its in the perfect location, facing south west with a wonderful view of palm trees, beach, ocean, and islands in the distance. Plus, our comfortable condo is protected by the sun and wind in afternoons. For a vacation - its ideal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Michael and Barbara:



I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on Maui and how much we enjoyed your lovely condo. I especially enjoyed waking up to the cooing of the doves and falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean. Your condo was very comfortable and the kitchen equipped with "just enough dishes" so as to not get carried away making gourmet meals. (My daughter is an awesome cook.) We ate in quite a few nights and that saved us some money...found some great restaurants as well. The beds were very comfortable too. I know that the trip and the condo were a great birthday gift for my daughter.



I also want to mention what a wonderful asset Hope Marie is and she is a delight to work with.

I will return next year 2011 in the spring... this time the trip will be FOR ME. I will contact you about coming in May. I need to organize some dates with my family.



Mahalo and much aloha.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I realized i had never left a review until i re-visited the vrbo listing to book for 2016! We seriously had the best trip! the unit was very clean and in a perfect location for us! First floor was great for our kids, and so was the small beach that was just north of the unit. Hope kept in touch and left us treats during our 2 week stay, i even received an email from he the day we left thanking me for washing the towels and sheets :) i really can't say enough good things about the unit. Air conditioning would have been ideal but we were ok without it. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear that all the upgrades and effort to make our condo a great place to stay, has enhanced another family vacation. We're so lucky to have such a beautiful oceanfront view from our condo making it perfect for two couples or a family of four.

The first floor setting and location in the building is the best for views of the ocean and sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

We love the condo. Spent another 3 weeks there this year.

Love the sound of the water from the front bedroom with the sliding door.

Many walks on the beaches out front and cooking and sunsets

on the roof. Quiet and private. Hope Marie as gate keeper and Michael and Barbara

as owners are the finest you could ever hope for!!!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to Maui. Heaven! Hope Marie is an amazing host. She is very helpful, and was on standby if we needed her. The condo is well-stocked with all of the essentials you would need: paper products, laundry soap, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach cooler, etc, etc. The treats upon our arrival were a very pleasant surprise! Most importantly, the view....the view is spectacular with a small private beach just yards outside the door! We fell in love with Maui! Thank you Hope Marie and the Gach's for an amazing stay!

Owner's Response: It's wonderful to fall in love with Maui. I'm so glad you enjoyed our condo, decor, furnishings, conveniences and its beautiful oceanfront view with islands in the distance. We now have a new washer/dryer, dishwasher, large flat TV, and upgraded furniture throughout. I'm so glad you loved our condo. The oceanview on our patio is so peaceful -- just like being in paradise.

Paradise

This condo and location are wonderful. Everything you need for your stay is provided. Hope Marie, the condo hostess, checks on us several times during our stay and leaves us wonderful treats. We love having our meals on the lanai and watching for whales. We walked the beach every day. We have stayed here six years in a row we love it so much. Best location in Maui!

It was wonderful being right by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our condo. Beautiful location, being on the ground floor was so nice because you could just walk right out to the beach.

I wish we had more towels for the bathroom.

The unit could have been cleaner.

We still had a great family vacation and will come back.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this great condo, end of January and first of February 2016. The condo was perfect for two couples. The scenery was great and excellent access to the beach which we would walk every day. It was the perfect place to relax when we weren't on excursions. Shopping and restaurants were close by. We enjoyed every minute in the paradise of Maui. We would recommend this condo to anyone and hope to come back ourselves someday.
