Gorgeous Maui Oceanview: 2 BR/2 BA Condo - Steps from the Beach!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

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 Kihei

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.

Great location in Kihei!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo. It was very well equipped and suited two couples perfectly. We liked being at ground level where we could enjoy watching the sunsets from the lanai, and could be on the beach in no time from our back entrance. It was very quiet overall, being situated away from the "busyness" to the south. We were lucky to see the invitation to join in the Thanksgiving celebrations on the rooftop with a lovely group of people...turkey dinner with all the fixin's! Michael was very good to deal with, we'd certainly return if we were to visit Maui again!

Owner's Response: Your excellent review and description of our Oceanfront condo is so inviting; it brings out what I tell everyone -- "the condo is just steps from the beach". Such a great location to walk right out to the beach, whether it's for a morning walk or sunset. Inside the unit, you'll find ALL new appliances in the kitchen (new stove, new dishwasher, new refrigerator) plus new washer/dryer and newly remolded bathrooms. We also upgraded all the decor and furniture. A great place for a vacation.

Great condo with beautiful views!

Owner's Response: There's nothing like relaxing in front of an oceanfront condo with a few palms to frame it and a couple of islands in the distance. Our cozy condo is so nice inside with all of the brand new appliances: new washer/dryer, new stove/refrigerator, new flat TV, new dishwasher and two gorgeously remolded clean bathrooms. But I bet you're not coming to Maui for any of these condo improvements; its the fact that our condo is just steps from the beach and in the master bedroom you can prop the pillows up to see the beautiful oceanfront view from your bed. That will put you in the Maui Mood of Aloha. . .

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at your condo for 10 days. We were so pleased when we walked thru the door and saw the beautiful view of the beach. The home was very clean, well stocked with anything you should need. We used the beach towels and chairs on days we went to the beach. We also left behind beach mats and a couple of noodles. The pool was great to use a couple of days when the wind was blowing so hard we couldn't go to any beaches. Love the location, close to shopping, beaches, and great restaurants. The sunsets were spectacular! Hope Marie was so kind to check up on us several times and even left us some goodies! We definitely would stay here again.

Thank you Michael and Hope!

Owner's Response: Having a guest tremendous enjoy our oceanfront condo makes all the effort we put into making our condo so nice - becomes totally worth it. Recently we put in all new appliances including the new stove, refrigerator, flat TVs, and new washer/dryer within the condo plus we completely remodeled both bathrooms in a custom way. Truthfully, it's the oceanfront view that makes the condo so special, just steps from the beach. It's such a nice place to stay. Just prop the pillows up in the master bedroom and you'll have a direct sunset ocean view.

Owner's Response: Having a view of the beach, palms, grass and the ocean is a huge reason guests love our condo. We also hire a wonderful person to host our condo, Hope Marie, who really cares that our guests have a great stay. If need be -- she'll go out if her way to make things right. We have recently put in new appliances, flat TVs, new washer/dryer, and nicely remolded both bathrooms (which probably isn't the main reason you're coming to Maui). As owners who live on the Island and who care about the quality of the condo, we think you'll enjoy it if you stay with us. ALOHA!

Clean, airy, convenient and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Kihei is conveniently located to just about everywhere in Maui, except Hana. Our stay at 121 Menehune Shores was wonderful. Ground floor, oceanfront, lovely trade wind breezes everyday, well stocked with kitchen and beach stuff. And the beds...they slept so good. Hostess was easy to reach and very helpful.

Amazing ocean front condo with gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about this condo. The location is perfect for getting around town and there are great restaurants nearby as well. More importantly the beach is just a stone's throw away. Gorgeous sandy beaches are just down the path from this ocean view condo, with a huge rooftop grilling area complete with an amazing view. I'll definitely be coming back in years to come.

Owner's Response: Great review! So glad that you loved our oceanfront condo with new washer/dryer, new stove & refrigerator, up-graded furniture/decor and new flat TVs. We're sure that you didn't come to Maui for our newly remodeled bathrooms, so we're glad that you loved the location and the oceanfront view.
