Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
About Cheryl Peterson
I live in Washington State, near Seattle. I first came to Hawaii on my honeymoon and knew I wanted to be able to spend more time here. Then when my parents were coming here often in the 70's for the agriculture business they discovered that Menehune Shores was being built, and they took advantage of the opportunity to pick a choice unit and they purchased this three bedroom unit located on the ground floor and central in the building away from the road and on the water. Now my husband and I along with our two married children and four grandchildren visit often.
Why Cheryl Peterson chose Kihei
As you come to realize when you stay here is that Menehune Shores is uniquely located on Maui. It is central to be able to access the major sights but still relatively private and away from the hubbub of crowded spots yet near grocery and other shopping and restaurants, golf, everything you might want. It is on the desirable west side of the island but not far from the airport; it is convenient to the major sights such as Haleakala, Hana, Lahaina, Wailea, some of the best beaches, and more. You will truly love the location. .
What makes this Condo unique
From your own private lanai (remember to take your binoculars!) you look out at West Maui, Kaho'olawe, Ma'alaea Bay, Lanai, and Molokini. During whale season you can see the humpbacks for a real treat. A unique aspect of Menehune Shores is that it is located directly on one of the ancient fishponds that was built for royalty (called the Ali'i) literally hundreds of years ago. It is truly a treasured cultural heritage and this one happens to be one of the best that is maintained. You can go to the website mauifishpond.com and learn more. It covers an area of three acres and is so large that today it offers the benefit of shallow wading and safe swimming for children and for everyone to practice their snorkeling techniques. We spend a lot of time right at the condo taking a brisk beach walk, playing games, swimming, snorkeling, boogy boarding, enjoying the beach, playing shuffleboard, or we simply enjoy being together in the wonderful warm weather and Hawaii atmosphere. We also like to take a day and go to Lahaina. That's an easy drive. Or we may drive to the top of Haleakala; we need to have brought our jackets for that one. Or we may elect to take the infamous, interesting, and extremely beautiful 'Road to Hana.'

Family Christmas vacation
Perfect location. Loved the “quiet” side of the island but easy to get anywhere. Fireworks on New Year’s Eve we’re beautiful. Loved the Indian restaurant on site. We will come back!
Mahalo for your kind words. The location is one of the best points of Menehune Shores. It's in the center of the island so convenient to get wherever you want to go whether it be Lahaina, Hana, Wailea, or Haleakala it is reasonable to get there. We look forward to your return.
Wonderful property with a great location
Beautiful condo, all amenities you need to enjoy your stay. Snorkeling and fishing right outside the door. We were thankful for the experience and would highly recommend this property.
Mahalo for all your kind words. We, too, think it's a uniquely great location and are pleased you enjoyed it.
Lovely location and views for days
This home was perfect for a restful getaway and would be terrific for a long stay. Cheryl is a dream to work with and the home is filled with everything we needed. Thank you for the soothing sounds of waves, beautiful sunrises, and memorable sunsets!
Aloha! Thank you so much for the dream review! That is very nice of you to say. I enjoyed having you stay at my condo and would love to have you back.
Well-stocked, quiet, comfortable condo.
Condo was comfortable, parking was easy, good location close to everything you want to do. Good for kids. Lots of beach toys. Great kitchen, newly redone bathroom.
Thank you for your kind review. Yes, everything that you say is the case, we're glad you found it that way.
Menehune Shores is in a wonderful location, central to sightseeing and not far from the airport. It is very convenient to be able to go up to Haleakala or to drive around to Hana. It is near Wailea for golf and to great beaches for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and having beach time. Great restaurants and shopping are nearby, too.
