LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! What makes the Shore of Maui so appealing is its prime location. South Kihei, the south western central part of the Valley Isle, has the least rainfall of anywhere on Maui. Which means it has the most sunny days.

GARDEN LEVEL OCEAN VIEW suite faces west and the setting sun, located directly across from Cove Park Bay. From the pool and most of the makai side, (oceanside), you have a MILLION DOLLAR UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW of incredible sunsets and the neighboring Islands of Kaho'olawe, Molokini, and Lana'i. Directly in front is Cove Park the premier surfing and paddle boarding area of Kihei and West Maui. Adjoining Cove Park to the north is Kalama Park, a large ocean front park (about 4 blocks long) that has expansive grass areas, BBQ's, play ground, roller skating rink, skate park, tennis courts and much more. Take surf board or paddle board lessons within 2 blocks to the North. Just south of Cove Park is Charlie Young Park and Kamaole Beach I, II, and III. Fully tiled pool and jacuzzi adjoin a 22 ft. covered tiled eating area, three gas BBQs and the tennis court, all within 100 ft of the Pacific Ocean.


Our A/C system is an ULTRA QUIET SPLIT AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM PROVIDING INDEPENDENT REMOTE CONTROLLED A/C IN BOTH THE LIVING ROOM AND BEDROOM. Other upgrades are: 18' floor tile diagonal pattern throughout, expanded kitchen with an eating bar, new thermopane lanai door and bedroom windows and frames, which when closed, keeps more heat out and the coolness in. Kitchen counters have just been upgraded to Corian surfaces with a new stainless sink and modern faucet (20150. New bath vanity sink, cabinets and faucet (2016). Living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath all have ceiling fans. Oak front door with key-less coded entry and locking security screen door. Flat screen HD TV's (46" Samsung Smart TV in the living room and 32"Samsung Smart TV in the bedroom) and free private and secure wireless internet in our unit. New (2013) living room furniture. Fully tiled shower with bamboo glass enclosure. Our parking lot was completely repaved October of 2014. Park right in front with direct access to the condo.

There are NO STAIRS to encounter and the entry to the pool area is ramped for wheelchair access.

We manage our own condo and our housekeeping staff is second to none. #122 is always fresh and clean for arriving guests.

We continue to make improvements, as this is our second home, not just a rental unit. We take pride in paying attention to details, having your comfort and satisfaction in mind. We are positive that you will not be disappointed and that you will want to return year after year to enjoy a great vacation in Paradise.

About David and Kate McKibben

This is the third unit at the Shores of Maui that we have owned and remodeled over the past 21 years.

David and Kate McKibben purchased this condo in 2003

Why David and Kate McKibben chose Kihei

Shores of Maui enjoys an unobstructed view of the ocean and 3 adjoining islands. Watch the surfers, paddle boarders, Hawaiian outrigger canoes, Humpback whales (seasonal Nov-April) from our lanai, the tennis court or the pool area. The two small beaches directly in front of us have come back over the past several years.

Our housekeeper is the best. #122 is always sparkling clean and fresh for your arrival.


What makes this condo unique

Shores of Maui is a 5 minute walk to a major grocery store, restaurants, and shops. The south end of Cove Park is just 100 feet from our property with two small sandy beaches. We are a small 50 unit complex and people return often to enjoy the friendly atmosphere. Join owners and guests poolside at 5:00 PM each Thursday at the PuPu party. We are a non-smoking unit AND non-smoking property. Smoking area is provided away from the building.

122 comes with a starter supply of kitchen/bath soaps, laundry supplies, paper towels and toilet paper.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful condo! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!

The Shores of Maui is the perfect place to stay in Maui and this Unit is great! Clean and bright, the A/C is a plus and the beds are comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom have been renovated and the decor adds an island touch. I recommend this Unit 100% and can't wait to stay there again soon!

Great little condo

  • 5 of 5

Shores of Maui has always been our favorite place to stay. This was the first time we stayed in 122 and we found it to be everything we needed. The kitchen was well appointed, the bed was very comfortable and the unit has a beautifully updated shower. The big plus is a very quiet very efficient air conditioning system that has a unit in the living room and a unit in the bedroom. I would highly recommend this unit. Also the rates were excellent!

Owner's Response: Aloha Laura, Yes, the split air conditioner was one of our better investments in making our condo guest friendly. When needed, it is great to be able to just have the A/C on in the bedroom for a comfortable and quiet sleep.

wonderful stay at the shores of maui for 7 nights

  • 5 of 5

Hi David!

We had a wonderful time in your apartment. It is really well equipped, you can find everything you need for perfect holidays, including children beach toys; we have left a few toys more. In the night it is really quiet, if the rooster nearby is not crowing!

The Shoes of Maui is very tiny and very well maintained, with a wonderful pool, jacuzzi and 3 free gas barbecues ..... We loved all this amenities and services, especially our 5 year old son.

I was at the shores 25 years and i will return for another stay!

Thank you for staying in your apartment!
