About the property

This 1960's Hawaiian House/Cottage 2 bedroom/2 BA (Slps 4-6) Beachfront Property

Private home, approximately 75 yards across spacious lawn with palm trees to a low dune and sandy beach.

The house is adjacent to a 4-bedroom house also available for rent (see HomeAway Listing No. 281823 or VRBO Listing No. 73607).

Quiet residential area, with a hand-cut lava-rock wall ensuring privacy, but only a short walk to shopping and restaurants.

The home is built on one level and made of redwood, with beamed ceilings and large windows. A large lanai faces toward the beach.

The yard contains lemon and banana trees and other tropical plants. The large lawn area between the house and the beach (shared with the adjacent house) is State land. The property is, however, maintained meticulously maintained by property owner. The beautiful property has over 40+ of palm trees and a huge Banyan Tree that is over a hundred +years old. Kids love to climb this one also is great for photos.

Just a short walk across the lawn area and you are on a peaceful beach, on a shallow lagoon with a fringing reef, where locals fish and gather seaweed in the tidepools. Beyond the lagoon is the open water, facing west to beautiful sunsets. Whales can sometimes be seen and heard beyond the reef during the whale season.



We recommend you rent from a licensed and permitted property. You do stand the chance of loosing your reservation and fees paid, if property is not properly permitted.

To the northwest the West Maui mountains dominate. The area is also used for surfing, windsurfing, kayaking or paddle-boarding. Also great small waves (depending on the weather) for bodysurfing.

What makes this house unique

We find it is very difficult to find a legally permitted beachfront home in Kihei Town.

The home is located in a nice, quiet, residential neighborhood. You can walk for approximately 6 miles, on a sandy beach. This makes it so nice to runners and children to have so much room to roam around on. Our home has by a handmade Lava Rock Wall, to add to your privacy. Property has over 40 palm trees adorn the property, making the property very shaded for sitting on beach chairs reading a book or watching the family play.

We have listened carefully to our guests over the years, and taken their suggestions seriously. We are happy to hear your suggestions to make our home more appealing to our treasured guests. We really do care about your vacation and your suggestions to improve our property. Thank you for considering our home for your vacation.

Note: We do not allow weddings and/or wedding receptions on our property.

Best place on the island

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and so well maintained. Has everything you need for a relaxing, fun vacation and you can't beat the sunsets on the back lanai. We have been on maui many times. This is centrally located on the perfect side of the island. Not to touristy, but walking distant to restaurants and shops. One of the best things about this trip was meeting the owner Brian. What a nice guy! He made sure we had fresh coconuts and knows the best places to go around the island. If you are considering this place, book it soon, it fills up fast for a reason.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and particularly the grounds. It is very private and beautiful. Kihei is in a great location to access all of the island. We found Brian very helpful and responsive. I think this property is very unique in that it is a house on the oceanfront. You see mostly condos in such locations. It is a gem!

This property is magical: right on the beach, an incredibly lush and huge yard and a genuine host. I can't say enough great things about this property and our stay. We will be returning.

Sehr schön gelegenes Starndhaus mit sehr viel Provatsphäre und fast menschenleerem Strand, an welchem fast täglich Schildkröten abends zum schlafen an Land kamen. Das Haus ist zwar etwas in die Jahre gekommen, aber sauber und gepflegt. Einfache, solide Ausstattung. Strandstühle, Bodyboards und einige Strandschuhe, Taucherflossen vorhanden. Boccia Spiel vorhanden. Wundervoller Palmengarten mit direktem Strandzugang. Gern wieder.

The perfect beachfront Hawaiian cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in quiet residential neighborhood. Loved the convenience of literally walking out the back door, across the grass to an incredible private beach for morning walks, postcard sunsets and turtles sleeping at night. Tons of nearby restaurants, shopping, snorkeling, many within walking distance. Being able to cook meals at the house was not only cost saving, but added to the ability to wind down and actually relax. The house was stocked with everything we needed: pots, pans, dishes, beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, indoor and outdoor games. Location was perfect for day trips all over the island. We can't thank you enough for making this home a memorable part of our trip!

The beach is on a shallow lagoon with a fringing reef, where locals fish and gather seaweed in the tide pools. Depending on time of the year and the weather. Beyond the lagoon is the open water, facing west to beautiful sunsets. Whales can sometimes be seen and heard beyond the reef during the whale season. To the northwest the West Maui Mountains dominate. Our beach is very private with very few tourists. As it is located in local neighborhood. You are able to walk, within 4 minutes to many local shops, grocery stores, restaurants, McDonalds, Taco Bell, (and more), churches, drug stores, Kaiser, many rental companies for snorkeling, biggie board rental, surf boards, paddle boards and more. Safeway is located 3 blocks from the house and a local market, (great for fresh caught fish and local foods) There is a local Kihei Aquatic Center just 3 blocks away, that has free swimming in their 4 swimming pools. Our grandchildren love the High Dive Boards! There is also a wonderful toddler pool with big mushroom waterfall, the toddlers love it! Many fresh fruit and local fruit stands are near by. The last 5 years, the large sea turtles have come to lay their eggs at the end of the lawn area. If you come at a time when the turtles are hatching, you with see an opportunity of a life time. Watch the newly hatched babies make their way to the ocean at night. It is a sight to behold. Ocean waves can be heard and whales slapping their tails in the ocean, from the house. Especially, at night. we would suggest bringing binoculars. The Whale Foundation is located just blocks from the house. Many charter boats for Ocean fishing trips, whale watching boats, tour boats, snorkeling boats, all located close to the house. No need to drive around the island for catch a good tour. There is a large community park just a couple of blocks away with many activities, great for children. Skating park, volleyball, picnic areas with BBQ'S, skateboard park, children playground. Great family fun for all located on Kamaole Beach. One of 3 Kamaole Beachs. Locals note them as the Best Beaches on Maui. Many local golf courses are near by, including the beautiful Wailea Golf Courses. You might get luck and watch a Professional to the public.

As you drive to the house from the airport, you might find it helpful to stop by Costco, Target, Walmart and more, to get your groceries and personal needs.

Kihei Town area is a very small, local town. Easy to get around, has really anything you could want during your visit. House is conveniently located for your convenience. Our guests love being able to walk to local shops and restaurants. Please let us know if you have any questions about your stay. We are more than happy to help you.
