Great Unit with a Private Lanai

Bedrooms 1
Space 780 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)







Unique qualities of this unit are its central location within the complex and the fact that it is a ground floor unit. This provides for easy access to the pool, the barbeque and the

road to the beach (which is 1 block away) and is helpful for unloading groceries, loading and unloading luggage and items for day trips around the island.


A screen door, an upgraded window in the bedroom and a patio door, all of which are lockable, provide a cool breeze which keeps the unit comfortable most of the time. There is an air conditioner in the living room and ceiling fans in the kitchen, living room and bedroom to supplement the breezes.


The very private lanai has a garden view comprised of plumeria trees, a flowering hedge and an adjacent field filled with an abundance of green folliage.


We have rented units in Kihei Alii Kai many times and love the size of the units (700 sq feet in the one-bedrooms plus a 150 sq ft lanai). We have viewed units in many of the surrounding properties and none can compare.


The fully equipped kitchen is a pleasure to work in. It has been upgraded with maple cupboards, granite counters, and new flooring. A newly renovated bathroom with tub and shower is a beauty. The smooth-top stove has a self-clean oven and the microwave is over the stove. 2015 and 2016 saw us re-texture the walls , re-paint the living room, kitchen and halls, install new carpet in the living room and bedroom, replace the drapes, dishwasher, and air conditioner .

Sleep in the luxury of a queen size Simmons Beautyrest pillowtop mattress in the bedroom and a new sofa bed in the living room which has a queen size deluxe spring-filled mattress with a pillowtop.

Furniture has been upgraded with new queen size sofa bed, occasional chairs, dining suite and bedroom suite. A full sized washer and dryer allows for fresh clothes changes in a sweaty tropical climate

The beautifully tiled lanai (porch) has a chaise lounge and a table and chairs and opens onto a lawn with a plumeria tree.

Beach towels, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a cooler are provided.

Long distance calls to Canada and the USA are free as is the wi-fi internet access.


While car rental gives visitors the luxury of touring the island at your liesure, it can be expensive. If you would prefer an alternaitve mode of transportation, we can recommend the Maui Bus. Details for using the Maui Bus are available on-line and in the the Visitors Binder in our condo. Shuttle Services are avilable for getting to the condo from the airport in Kahului.

About Rod, Lois and Brad Tomlinson

Rod and Lois have rented units in Kihei Alii Kai on many visits to Maui and always loved the spaciousness of the units and the closeness of the beach. Our family (children and grandchildren) spent Xmas 2010 at the complex and our son Brad got excited about having a winter retirement home in Maui in the future. So we casually started looking at property and the more we viewed, the more Kihei Alii Kai came out on top! When we found this ground floor, upgraded and private unit, with its perfect location in the complex, it sold itself!

This is now our comfortable tropical home away from home. We hope that you will love it as we do, and that you will treat it as carefully as you would your own home. Enjoy!

Rod, Lois and Brad Tomlinson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Rod, Lois and Brad Tomlinson chose Kihei


South Kihei has the best weather, most sun and three of the most popular beach parks in Hawaii. Unlike self-contained hotel resort settings, it has a folksy “village-like” atmosphere. You can walk to restaurants, shopping, beaches, a health-food store and internet café. There are six championship golf courses within 15 minutes and easy access to the Pi’ilani Highway for fast trips to other places on the island. Early morning on South Kihei Road is a jogger/walker's paradise. It is few minutes drive to central Kihei with three supermarkets (including Safeway), Longs Drug Store, hardware store, local theater productions and other shopping amenities.

What makes this condo unique

Kihei Ali’i Kai is a popular condominium complex with its own access road to ample parking for guests and visitors. Some of the parking is covered.

It is clean and well managed. The concrete and building block construction makes for quietness between units. The layout, designed with lanais located so they do not look at each other, creates a sense of privacy.

The pool is one of the largest and the pool deck one of the most spacious in the area. A large Jacuzzi complements both pool and deck. Showers for removing beach sand are located at the entrance to the complex. Two tennis courts complete the recreation facilities.

Two BBQ areas provide a place for guests to meet and visit after the sun goes down

A nice unit

  • 4 of 5

The amenities are nice, I like the open feel of the living area, the condo is well equipped and comfortable. Having breakfast out on the lanai facing vegetation instead of staring at people was very enjoyable. Having all the sheets, towels, cooking appliances and utensils you could need is nice. The owners clearly want you to have a pleasant stay. I would recommend the condo.
