Enjoy awesome ocean views from almost every room in this ocean front, three bedroom, 1126 square feet, fabulous unit! Living room, dining room, kitchen, Master bedroom and second Master offer 'front row' spectacular views of the Blue Pacific, West Maui mountains, Maalaea Bay and the islands of Kahoolawe and Lana'i. From this condo witness the beauty and serenity of the setting sun. Listen for the soft sounds of the Conch shell announcing sunset. Fall asleep listening to the calm, rhythmic sounds of the ocean waves.
Maui's beauty is everywhere and viewed DIRECTLY for this condo without any obstructions, such as other resorts, condos or hotels. This unit has it all including DELUXE CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING with SEPARATE THERMOSTATS in EVERY ROOM. No noisy window units here. Just cool, quiet comfort. The gorgeous views, granite, tile and marble appointments, HDTV in the living room and wall mounted flat screens in each of the three bedrooms add luxury to easy living.
The sandy beach is just outside the door and stretches for miles to the north and south of the building. The building sits in front of the ancient Hawaiian fishpond of King Kamehameha and is registered historical site. The relatively calm, warm waters of the pond make for a wonderful swimming and snorkeling experience for children and adults alike. Exciting wind and kite surfing action, monk seal, sea turtles and wintering humpback whales are visible directly from the condo. The rooftop deck, complete with Weber gas grills, picnic tables and lounge chairs offer a sweeping 360 degree view of the ocean, Mt Haleakala and south shore of Maui. The property grounds are manicured and immaculately maintained. Swim in the heated pool or access a small public swimming beach from the pool side gate.
Located in the heart of Kihei, Menehune Shores central location offers easy travel travel to six world class golf courses, the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and Maalaea Harbor. The wailea Resort hotels, shops and restaurants are just 20 minutes away. The historic seaport of Lahaina is a mere 30 minutes to the north. Kahului Aiport is 15-20 minutes from the property.

Our family of six stayed here from 3rd to 10th August. The condo was clean and well-furnished with A/C, fully-equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, private parking, and wireless internet. The three bedrooms and two full baths were clean and comfortable.
The views of the Pacific Ocean, mountains and sunsets are truly breathtaking! This condo is right on the beach, so the kids could go down to play and we could conveniently watch over them from the lanai. We also saw turtles inside the fish pond while strolling on the beach.
The Indian restaurant downstairs has decent food and turned out to be very convenient for our family.
The rental agency was great to work with. Our family was very taken care of and and had a wonderful time.
This condo was the perfect place for me, my wife, and three adult children to celebrate my retirement on Maui. First, its central location was ideal for various day trips covering the coast of the entire island and up into the mountains, as well as whale watching tours and snorkeling\scuba diving. These adventures occurred between relaxing rest times in a roomy and convenient condo whose large deck gave us gorgeous views of the ocean, mountains, sunsets, and moonlight. Two bedrooms with deck access fronted the ocean, and I fell asleep to the sound of surf with a pleasant breeze blowing through open windows. The immaculate green lawn beneath palm trees, the pool, and the beach access made us feel very pampered. There were ample grilling facilities when we wanted to eat outside, and the pleasant weather in Kehei is consistently sunny and dry We felt like we were in another world, but we also had the security of renting from someone whose office was next door, who was always very responsive to our questions and needs. As first time visitors to Hawaii, we found this very helpful. For all these reasons, adventure, relaxation, and security, I recommend this condo.
My wife and I stayed in this condo January 24-31, 2015 with 2 other couples. The condo was comfortable for all 6 adults. Kitchen has all necessary cookware and we did eat in a few times. The condo is right on the beach, great view from the balcony which had a table with 4 chairs. Complex had a very nice heated fresh water pool and nice outdoor cooking facilities. The rooftop balcony is very large with 4 gas grills, picnic tables and lounge chairs. It is very nice. The complex is in the heart of Kihei and Safeway grocery store is close by along with other shopping and restaurants.
There are 2 things to consider:
1. The condo is right above the Indian restaurant. We knew that going in. Some reviews mentioned the smells (which were minimal) but did not mention the noise. The restaurant has a lattice roof so you can hear all restaurant conversations, dishes banging and the Friday entertainment if you are sitting on the balcony. This is between 6 and 9 PM.
2. If you have 2 cars, and are staying there during high season, one of them has to be parked overnight off the property about 2 blocks away.
If these 2 issues do not bother you, then I would recommend staying at this condo.
This condo was fabulous. Our family of five was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Wonderful lanai with perfect views. Very well taken care of and the agency that we worked with in regards to rental was very professional and informative. We would stay here again. Thank you to the owners for sharing your beautiful condo with us.
My husband, two young kids (3 and 4) and mother enjoyed this 3 bedroom condo immensely! The condo itself was close to the stairs/elevators that led to the pool and lawn/bbq area. There were turtles in the protected waters a night. And we would start out mornings with a 5km run along the beach that was easy to access. Also the Indian restaurant below was excellent! The real bonus of this place is the great ocean views and breeze!
The condo itself was very clean and accommodating (they let us check out late in the day). Everything we needed was there! Towels, beach toys etc...(we left some kid stuff as well!). The pool was a great hang out area for kids and adults alike. A very social and friendly environment.
Not much noise. Very quiet at night. We would go back in a heart beat!
This property has it all. The price is unbeatable for the amenities, location, and comfort. Me and my girlfriends booked this unit for a week. We arrived in Maui ready to hit the town, got our rental car, easily drove to the property within 15 minutes, and then BAM! We walked into the unit and were awestruck with the magnificent view. I mean, it's just incredible. We never wanted to leave! The place is open, airy, has tons of storage, a nice kitchen, and a lanai to die for. We spent so many sunsets on that lanai enjoying a cocktail listening to the waves crash in. And so many mornings enjoying Kona coffee watching whales breech and play in the distance. (YES, you really can see whales playing in the ocean from the lanai!!)
Parking was easy, never a problem in the lot. The pool was great, no issues grabbing chairs to relax on. Beach access was a breeze, you don't even need to use the pool key to get to the beach which makes packing light with a bikini and a towel even more carefree. The lagoon in front was great for a warm shallow area of beach (great for kids), but we snuck around the corner of the beach to the powdery sand on the other side and soaked up rays there.
Location is great, you can walk or drive to Kihei shops in a mile or two, and it's a great jumping off point to get to the road to Hana, or Mt Haleakala for sunrise. Even Lahaina is only about a 30 minute drive away.
We had a small issue with one of the bathrooms but the property manager took care of it immediately when we called her. The only other things missing were an ipod dock or cd player to play music (so bring your own), and it would have been 10x easier if the couch was a fold out sofa bed. But we made do. Also, there's an Indian food restaurant on the ground floor, so the smells of spices and curry can permeate the air, but we were all okay with this, it smelled great and wasn't constant.
I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone visiting Maui, and I would certainly rebook with the same unit. Aloha and Mahalo!
