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. 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 24"' 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 Maui

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.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife stayed for 6 nights and had a blast! This is one of the only condos that has a/c in the living room and bedroom, so you can sleep without being super sweaty and hot! The apartment was clean and organized, and we would/will definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dallas, A/C is often not needed on Maui, but when it is, it is great to have the whole condo the ability to be cooled down, and not just the living room.

Extremely clean!

  • 5 of 5

It was remarkable how clean it was when we first got there. Quite often when you check into a rental of some sort, there will be tell-tale signs of previous guests. Not so here. It was decorated very nicely without being over the top. The extra cupboard added was ingenious and really helped with extra kitchen needs, which was necessary because it was stocked with everything you could need/want! Parking was right outside the door - so convenient! No lobby or elevators to use when you're wet and/or sandy. Cove Park and Charley Young Beach have always been our favorites, and are such a short walk away. Thank you for sharing your home with others - it was much appreciated!

Can't beat it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week here this Spring, and we'd be remiss if we didn't shout to the heavens how down-to-earth comfortable the McKibben's unit is!!! Strong wifi, clean accommodation, comfy beds, the BEST electronic air-conditioning in the complex, modern kitchen with ALL the things you need to cook/eat/clean/store things with, and decently quiet (considering it's central location)!

David gave us a great pre-arrival brief, answered all our "first-timer" questions, gave us a foolproof entry method (even if we arrived late -- which we did!), and really made us feel as if we were just making ourselves at home!

We will definitely put David and Kate's condo on the top of our "call list" the next time we're planning to visit Maui!

Owner's Response: Thank you Chris for the great review. Kate and I give a great deal of thought into making our "little piece of Paradise" as welcoming as we can. So glad you and your wife had a great time.

Exceptional Time

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week every year in Kehei and for the last 3 have been staying at the Shores of Maui. This year in unit 122. That unit is wonderful, clean and very convenient to all amenities. The host are caring and detailed in confirming your booking arrangements. I would recommend this unit as it is perfect for more mature couples, 50 years plus.

Wonderful Unit, Location and Grounds

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just completed our second stay at this unit. The accommodations are clean, nice and very enjoyable. The unit, grounds and amenities at the McKibben's unit in the Shores of Maui provide you with everything you need for an unforgettable vacation. Fantastic location in the heart of Kihei, ocean views of Cove Park and the surfers and incredible sunsets from your lanai. Great pool, BBQ setup and just steps from the ocean shores AND shopping and restaurants. Our favorite place to stay on Maui.
