Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6): Few Units This Large

We think our condo will be everything you are looking for to have a perfect vacation. #214 is located on the second floor; close enough to the ground to watch all the local bird and quail activity across the property grounds and yet high enough to offer extensive views of the boats on the ocean, colorful water sports and humpback whales breaching in season (Dec – April). Every sunset is different and can be seen from different vantage points from either of the private lanais off the living room or master bedroom.

This condo is the largest floor plan available; don't be fooled, but look at this closely - most 2BR/2Bath units at Kauhale Makai are 799 sq. ft. Only a few units like ours with both bedrooms directly looking out upon the ocean are 975 sq. ft. What you end up paying for a unit doesn't correlate with what you will get, so look closely at what size you are getting. We have done an extensive remodeling project involving the entire unit. You will enjoy the beauty, inside and out. It is so peaceful and private here.

This condo sleeps 6 with comfortable options for either two couples or a family. One bedroom has a King bed and the other bedroom has a queen-size bed. Both rooms serve as master bedrooms with views of the Pacific Ocean, West Maui Mountains, neighboring islands and Ma’alaea Harbor. Each has its own separate adjoining bathroom. For the family option, the King bed is prepared in advance as two twin beds. The queen pull-out sofa bed in the living room is very comfortable.

Experienced Hawaiian vacationers will appreciate the quiet, central air conditioning; a rare commodity in condo complexes in Kihei. This really makes for a more comfortable stay.

This is a perfect place to relax or to play all day. We supply boogie boards, air mattresses, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach towels and coolers. There is a wide range of restaurants and a farmer’s market within a mile of the condo. Nearby you will find shopping centers ranging from outlet malls to world class boutiques - and golfing in Wailea. Beaches known around the world are only minutes away.

Last, but not least, to rent this condo is a unique experience in service and communication. Margie, the owner, does not work through a managing agency through the reservation process but receives all communication herself before and during your stay. She has a fast response rate and as you can tell from the multiple rave reviews, having this connection with her makes a big difference towards having a wonderful vacation experience.

About Margie Olson

We are a married couple in our 50s with three grown kids. We live in Washington State and Glenn is retired but Margie is still having fun working as a nurse manager in a hospital. When we are both retired we hope to spend a lot more time at our condo being warm. We see this purchase as a family investment and want to make it as nice as possible for others to experience.

Something that makes a big difference for our guests is that Margie does not work through a booking agency to rent her condo. Because she personally manages her reservations and wants to receive all questions, she has a fast response rate and it is a personal experience for you as the guest if questions arise before or during your stay. As you can tell from reading her rave reviews, having this connection with the owner makes a big difference.

Margie Olson purchased this condo in 2009

Why Margie Olson chose Maui

Kihei is on the sunny-side of Maui. We wanted to chose a location that would be the best bet for great weather year-round. We also appreciate that the location is central to everything on Maui - everything you want to see or do is close.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is very large, almost 1000 sq. ft.; both bedrooms feel like master rooms with panoramic views and each has its own custom-designed bathroom. We are located directly on the oceanfront with spectacular views and direct, easy access to the beach but not so close to the water that beachcombers are underfoot. Lastly, we think the second floor location is perfect because it provides excellent views of all the property wildlife and the Pacific Ocean with a total sense of privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From email sent to owner: "The condo was PERFECT for me and my family! It was just the right size. The location was a great launching pad for our many day trips around the island. We enjoyed a couple of nights at the BBQs and swims in the pool. And of course after our days running around the island, retiring to the Lanai to relax and watch the sunsets.



The condo was nicely furnished. I can't think of anything that we needed?? Very comfortable.



We had such a nice vacation. Hard to come back to the cold weather. We will definitely consider another trip in 2010. My husband's sister lives in Kihei so it's a good excuse to visit again".

Best condo in the complex!

  • 5 of 5

I was maid of honor in a wedding whose 20 guests all booked condos at the 938 South Kihei complex. My friend and I booked Margie's place because it was a great deal and was facing the ocean.

All of the guests and Bride and Groom visited each others condos throughout the week of celebrations. ****All of our friends in the complex commented that we had the best condo! **** Clean, airy, light filled, convenient, the best view (we loved the magnificent tree off of the 2 lanais), the most luxurious bathrooms, and all around most comfortable. Needless to say, Margie's condo became the most popular gathering spot for all of us during the week.

Thank you Margie for making this wonderful occasion even better!

Fantastic unit, very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven nights in the unit with two adults and two young children and had a wonderful stay. The views out of the living room and both bedrooms are breathtaking, particularly at sunset. The place was clean and well appointed when we arrived, with all of the towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, etc., etc. we needed for our stay. There was plenty of space and the second bathroom was a real bonus.

We had several questions for Margie during our stay and she responded almost instantly. She is a real professional.

The location is excellent for access to Kihei and the beach in front of the condos is nice for morning and evening strolls. The overall complex shows a little age, but the pool and grounds are cared for daily and the residents we met were friendly and considerate. Margie's unit was clearly renovated and really shines.

We hope to book this property again on our next visit to Maui!

Perfect location; comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 of us at this condo and there was plenty of space for us. The kitchen had everything we needed. The balcony was a wonderful place to sit - so relaxing to have breakfast out there listening to the surf and the birds.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just what we expected from the pictures and description. Great ocean views from both bedrooms and the living room/kitchen area. Nicely furnished. Beach items (chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc.) were very helpful. A full kitchen with everything we needed for meals. This is our third stay at Kauhale Makai (over a 15 year period), and the best unit we've stayed in, both in terms of the view and general ambiance of the unit. We like the central location in Kihei. About 15-20 minutes from shopping in Kahului (Costco, Target, Walmart) and from the start of the Hana and Haleakala highways. About 45 minutes to Lahaina and Ka'anapali depending on traffic. About 20-30 minutes to snorkeling beaches in Wailea (our favorite is Ulua beach).

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fantastic. From waking in the morning gazing over the ocean and mountains to a few drinks on the balcony in the evening the place was amazing. Fully stocked recreation cupboard was great. The kids (and us) had never played shuffleboard before and got right into it. Kitchen had everything we needed and shops were only a couple of minutes down the road. Condo was comfortable and well located as it was a bit more relaxed that some other tourist areas but centrally located so didn't take too long to get anywhere - I would highly recommend it.

BEST CONDO/LOCATION ON MAUI!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from my third visit to Maui and Margie's amazing Condo that has now become one of my permanent vacation getaways. Let me try to paint a picture for all of you considering where to stay in Maui. Maui has many places to stay around the island with popular areas of Lahaina to the West and Wailea to the South. Kihei is a less touristy area on the southern middle part Maui between these two location offering excellent access to both as well as a perfect starting point to the popular West Maui Highway, Road to Hana, and Haleakala. Kihei has great dining at countless restaurants and amazing uncrowded beach access. While Maui is almost always sunny, Kihei is the sunniest place on the island, even when its cloudy or raining everywhere else Kihei seems to have its own sunny weather system.

After arriving at the airport you take a short 20-30 minute drive to the Condo. The condo is located on the Northern edge of Kihei right on the beach. It the second story, beach side on the corner giving it 270 degree views of the ocean and mountains with two lanais to enjoy them. As I'm sure you can tell from the pictures the condo has everything you could possibly need from bathroom supplies, condiments, and countless beach toys (saving lots of time and money). The place has always been extremely clean (I'm very critical of this) and has a very homey welcoming feel about it.

During the day I love reading around the pool/jacuzzi, playing giant shuffle board, volleyball, walking the beach, snorkeling or even brushing up on my golf game on the putting green. Evenings are my favorite between the same day activities or watching the sunset, running around playing with the countless giant toads or just stargazing on the almost empty beach.

This is my first time writing a review for pretty much anything but I could go on forever about how much I love this location and condo but I'll spare you. I wanted to write a raving review after the first trip but didn't quite know how to do it justice in words. All I can say is you won't be disappointed, and you'll be back. Don't waste your money on an overcrowded, expensive hotel.
