VBRO Guest Comments:


The condo is beautiful, well laid out and very well equipped and maintained. Ideally located with easy midpoint access south to Makena and north to the roads to Hana and Lahaina. We think this place is a terrific value.


The location was worth the rental by itself, but there were many other excellent things about the condo! We ate dinner on the lanai several times, and enjoyed the lovely sunset as we ate. Cooking was a snap due to your fully-stocked kitchen, which we took full advantage of after visiting Costco!


The 180 degree ocean view was incredible and we enjoyed morning walks along the beach in front of the condo.


We saw a humpback whale breach from the lanai, and loved our ocean view. The owner communicated with us promptly and efficiently, and I would definately recommend this property.

Recent Renovations: New tiled floors throughout condo. Completely renovated bathroom with new bathtub. New double white doors seperating the bedroom from the living room.

Christine and Ingrid welcome you to our centrally air conditioned condo on beautiful Maui.

Our condo in Kauhale Makai also known as Village by the Sea is located on the third floor in a six storey building at 938 South Kihei Road, Kihei, Maui.

Our condo has a king-size bed in the bedroom, a brand new queen size pull out couch in the living room and there is also a roll-a-way bed (single) which can be set up anywhere in the condo. As of June 2016 we have replaced all of the dining room and living room furniture with brand new furniture.

We now have Wireless high speed Internet access in our condo at no extra charge to you as well as free local and long distance telephone calls at no extra charge.

There is a beautiful ocean view from the lanai as well as from the interior of the condo. The Kauhale Makai complex includes an adult pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, miniature putting green and we share the beachfront tennis courts with the Luana Kai complex next door. There is a concierge in the lobby with lots of fun suggestions for you as well.

About The Owner

I have been in the Maui condo rental business for over twenty five years and have, over the years sent thousands of happy guests to our condos.

We're located in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada (just outside Vancouver). We have been married for thirty eight years and have three children with whom we spent many happy holidays on Maui and continue to do so now as well. At one point we even talked about packing up and moving to Maui but that did not materialize.

Our hobbies are cycling (especially around our gorgeous seawall here in Vancouver), walking, yoga, social ballroom dancing, reading and going to the cinema.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1980

Why The Owner chose Kihei

Our in-laws had bought a condo in Kihei and were always telling us about the fabulous beaches, good weather (far less rain than on other parts of the island), casual atmosphere and great location of Kihei and that is how we ended up buying a condo in Kihei as well.

What makes this condo unique

Kauhale Makai has beautiful tropical gardens, a kiddies pool as well as a large pool, Jacuzzi and sauna baths, shuffleboard, BBQS and Central A/C in all units as well as an ocean view from each unit.

I spent a long time looking for the best price/value for my families trip to Maui. I first looked to price line at resorts, then vrbo, then craigslist where i found plenty of people fishing for money with no safeguards to guarantee i'd get what was offered. Very scary. I know there were at least 3 different properties i inquired about wanting cash via Western union up front, a huge red flag. Then I went to homeaway and found this gem. This was my first time booking through homeaway and I was paranoid of getting scammed after talking to people from craigslist. When I talked with Ingrid and she walked me through the process I felt safe as can be. I paid with a credit card and was given everything I needed for when I arrived right away. Needless to say I slept easy. The property was absolutely amazing. The beds were comfortable, nice lcd tvs in each room, tiled shower with good pressure, the internet WiFi was fast and there was even condiments and spices left by previous guests for us cook with. The kitchen was well stocked and even had Tupperware we could use in the coolers.. There were also plenty of towels, boogie boards, and beach chairs. Sitting on the Lanai at night watching the sunset we had a breathtaking view. We were also in the hot tub every night after long days at the beach cooking out on one of the 5 gas grills. This place really has it all. I felt like I got the bargain of the year with this one. Everything on Maui is expensive so I wasn't expecting this to be this good. Sometimes you really do get more than you expect. Don't pay tons of money for a small room at a resort. I don't know about other units in the building but in my book this is the best deal on the island. Here is the only thing missing that the $600.00 a day places had... a beach good for swimming. Kannapalli is 45 min away. Wailea 15 min and big beach 20 min. You need a car to get around. But that is such a small price to pay. Do you really want to stay at the same beach every day? This is centrally located. It's better.

Very enjoyable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Kauhale Makai (Villages by the Sea) is a wonderful complex located ocean side along a long walking beach. It is centrally located with swimming and snorkeling beaches only 5-15 minutes drive from the complex. There is a pool, hot tub, wading pool and BBQ grills on site with access to tennis courts and shuffle board. It is close to many shops and restaurants. Unit 307 is situated on the desirable inside V section of the complex. The lanai provides a wonderful view of the ocean and mountains, which was perfect for viewing sunrises and sunsets. We enjoyed many meals on the lanai. Unit 307 is spacious, clean, quiet and furnished nicely with comfortable furniture and king size bed. It contains WiFi and 2 TVs. The kitchen is fully stocked, which is great for eating-in. The owner also provided beach equipment, such as beach chairs, beach umbrella and coolers. These came in very handy for our trips to the beach! The owner, Ingrid, was wonderful to deal with and made certain that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. Unit 307 is a great value and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would return again. Nadia and Tom

Kihei Delight

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the condominium was the best we have encountered during our two island tour. The condo was very clean and well appointed. The ocean view from the lanai was just as pictured in the VRBO description and a joy most mornings as we ate breakfast outside. The owner was very responsive to emails and by telephone to address some issues mostly involving the construction that was going on at the complex and in front of the lanai. The owner was quick to offer some accommodation of the rate to mediate these issues. The condo was very quiet and the king sized bed was very comfortable. Once the construction is finished this condo would be an exceptional place to stay and very affordable.

Beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the place it was easily accessible although there was re-construction going on in N Kihei road and at the condo complex. We were hoping it would have not been occurring near the room. The room was well equipped with basic necessities, although we needed more it was nice to have all of the basics. The King bed was extremely comfy! The Queen pull out wasn't as comfy. We enjoyed the coolers and the older beach chairs. The place was equipped with two beach towels which was fine for the two of us traveling. Every morning we enjoyed waking up with the birds and the VIEW of the water and weather for the day. I usually stay on the other side of Kihei but this unit was very enjoyable. Thank you!

Wonderful place to vacation !

  • 4 of 5

We always enjoy staying at this condo. Very relaxing location for those not craving the busy beaches and nightlife but close enough that you can get to any all locations within minutes. Condo is very well equipt with beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and a fully equipt kitchen. Our favourite home away from home in Maui !
