Kihei House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Located in South Maui along the shores of beautiful Makena Bay, the Makena Bay House is a private, two-story residence located in an island paradise. The Makena Bay house's size and location make it an ideal choice for couples looking for a tropical getaway!

Newly built in 2005, the Makena Bay House has all the modern conveniences for a care-free vacation. The ground floor has an outdoor cabana that features a sitting area, a TV with DVD player and VCR, a wet bar with refrigerator, a gas BBQ grill, and a full bathroom. There is also a heated outdoor shower and hot tub in a perfect spot to enjoy a gorgeous Maui sunset.

The upstairs interior has many special touches including vaulted ceilings, granite throughout, bamboo floors, upscale faucets, and accent lighting. Large sliding glass doors open to two decks, one off the kitchen and one off the bedroom, with views of the neighboring islands of Molokini, Kaho'olawe, and Lanai. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed to comfortably sleep 2 people.

From the property, you can watch turtles in the surf just a few feet away and during the winter months you can see humpback whales as they migrate along the coast. Some of the islands best diving and snorkeling are directly in front of you. A clear night will treat you to amazing star gazing. The Makena Beach and Golf Resort is a short walk. You can enjoy Maui's finest restaurants as well as world-class shops and spas in Wailea; golf, tennis, and pristine beaches are close by. Makena is considered to be one of the more beautiful areas of Maui and there's no better place to experience Maui than the breathtaking, peaceful setting of Makena Bay House!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, lovely, lovely. The longer we stayed the more we fell in love with the place and surroundings. We wanted a getaway spot to celebrate Grace's 50th birthday and this was it. We took a trip into busy Kihei to really appreciate the calm, the view, and the privacy. Your home has all the amenities We found whale watching best between 4:30-6:00pm. You have some great beaches nearby but we enjoyed the bluff and the deck more. Thank you so much.

  • 4 of 5

We only left once to go out to lunch

Otherwise the peacefulness and tranquility were worth staying for

The home had everything

Wonderful decks

Great spaces to relax


Only thing one bedroom is just a bit small

But sure tolerable with that view

Thank you Lisa for a great experience

We loved our 7 days there

I would recommend this home to any couple looking for some private beautiful ocean front home

I hope to return someday

Makena beach is the best

Away from crowds

Great beaches

Great morning walks

Wonderful hot tub

Thanks again for sharing your home

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This perfect ocean front getaway was just what the Dr. ordered. All the amenities you could ever ask for and more. Beautiful views from very window, crashing waves all day and night. Sea turtles and snorkeling just steps away off a small private beach. This is the ultimate getaway. Oh and the hot tub, perfect after an active day, lay back and enjoy the stars. Mahalo

Maui birthday trip

Already miss our home on Makena Bay! Literally steps from the water and turtle cove! I've never been to Maui so this place was more than I imagined.

Let's put it this way... Spent a week laughing at all the tourists that weren't lucky enough to find and be staying where we were!! Then we felt sorry for them... Enough said!

Amazing Maui Escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing time visiting Maui! The house was perfect for our needs. The beach is a minute away, and the snorkeling is great! There were boogie boards and snorkeling equipment provided at the home which was fantastic! When it rained in the afternoons, we were able to enjoy the AC and the full functioning kitchen. This was great because going out for every meal can get pricey! The home owners were very quick to answer any questions we had, and left a binder full of information about the home and the surrounding area. We will definitely be back! - Mahalo!
