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 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 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.

Very Enjoyable Stay - Great View and Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week and were very happy with the condo and its location. The building that the condo is in is very well maintained, clean, and quiet. The condo itself is very tastefully decorated, and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We spent our relaxing time on the lanai - the view is beautiful. Hope made sure that we had everything we needed, and she provided some welcoming treats as well as some treats midway through our stay - a nice touch! We would stay here again.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful two weeks in this condo!

Well appointed, comfortable and bright .. our favourite spot was the lanai, overlooking what often seemed was our own private beach! Oh, the sunsets!!

On a couple of occasions we were delighted to find tasty treats from Hope on our door after returning from our excursions!!

We were very comfortable sharing this condo with another couple and would not hesitate to re-book.

Owner's Response: It's great to have such wonderful guests who appreciate the simple pleasures of a oceanfront peaceful view morning, afternoon and for sunsets. We do supply beach chairs, a cooler, beach toilets and boogie boards but when all you need is our lanai patio over looking what feels like a private beach and sunsets -- it will feel like you're really in Maui!

Very beautiful and peaceful property.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week ago and couldn't be anymore happy with our experience. The instructions were very clear on how to get into the condo for the first time- we didn't struggle finding the keys and didn't have to deal with the hassle of checking into our room (like hotels). The condo is beautiful and comes equipped with a full kitchen. The walls are also very soundproof so we didn't deal with loud noises from neighbors. We were very close to many shops and restaurants and, of course, the beach. You could get to the beach in less than a minute. The pool is also very nice and relaxing. Hope made sure to check up on us to see if everything was going well, and responded to us very promptly when we had questions. Overall, we had a very fun time in Maui as a family and we are so grateful to have stayed in this condo. We will stay here for sure on our next trip!

Owner's Response: It's so wonderful to hear how our popular Oceanfront condo contributed to make a dream come true vacation for families and couples. We upgraded all of our furniture, recently bought a new washer/dryer, new dishwasher, 3 flat TVs and completely remodeled both bath rooms. We also provide useful accessories like beach chairs, beach towels, an umbrella, and an ice chest. Our hostess Hope Marie, who is the best detailed support person ever, makes sure that everything is done right. Having that kind of responsible back-up can me a huge difference and guests so appreciate her. Since we live 10 minutes away, we start supporting guests by providing our personal list of recommended restaurants and places to visit. We hope you can sense that our hearts are into making your vacation especially wonderful. Our condo's oceanfront view, being just steps from the beach, with palm trees and islands out in the distance, symbolizes paradise and beauty beyond words. We feel tremendously grateful to share this remarkable vacation spot with our guests.

Amazing first time ever in Maui

  • 5 of 5

The condo was way more than we expected. It was extremely well equipped and perfectly located right on the water. The owners were very personable and helpful with local information and also took time to talk with us when we had questions. Hope was an amazing host. She made sure that we had everything we needed and more. She even left chocolates in the refrigerator and hand delivered some local banana bread that was delicious. These small touches made our stay in Maui even more than we could've hoped for. Kudos to the owners and Hope.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed our condo tremendously. This is what life is all about, especially when you travel thousands of miles to a tropical island - you want your accommodations to be very special. So we provide the beach chairs, a cooler, beach towels, and even boogie boards. When you step into our condo, you immediately realize that we've upgraded all the furnishings, decor, 3 flat TVs, gorgeous bathrooms, new dishwasher, new washer/dryer and Hifi for your convenience. Then you realize how wonder it is to not only have an Oceanfront view, but be steps from the beach. It's paradise.

Great place!

We had a great time at the condo. Pictures are very accurate. There are lots beach supplies like chairs, boogie boards and towels. It was very relaxing and we had a great time. Location is centeal. FYI this was not a problem just a note, the complex is elderly and quiet.

Owner's Response: So many of our guests love to return, just for the beautiful oceanfront view - steps from a 1/2 mile walk on the beach, where you'll see three islands in the distance. So glad you loved staying in our condo which now has totally remodeled bathrooms, a new dishwasher, 3 flat TVs, new washer/dryer, Wifi, and upgraded furniture and decor. We appreciate that our guests love returning to our oceanfront vacation rental.
