Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Exquisite one bedroom, one bath oceanfront apartment on the ocean's edge

HKOK Improvement Project Update — Thursday, Oct. 27th, 8:30 AM HST.

As visitors to our listing might know, we shut down our apartment over August and September, the promised window for the initiation and conclusion of the significant and welcome improvements to the ocean-side of the building. Our view then, as now, is that if HKOK isn’t exceptional in every way, it’s not what we’d want for our guests.

The undertaking includes the installation of showers for HKOK guests at either end of the building to wash off salt and sand, a new deck the length of the building, and the installation of an elegant flagstone surface above. It’s a welcome modernization, and I cannot wait for our guests to enjoy the enhanced experience it will provide.

Those of us with a keen eye to detail and timelines realized that the project was in some trouble in August. The Board confirmed the delay on September 19th; tiling was to have started on September 1st. Some false steps by the Board early on, and poor transition to a new owner by the on-island property management firm were the flapping wings of the butterfly.

First off, tremendous credit to our guests who, when notified of the upset, and provided with options and assured of proper compensation, remained calm and allowed us to get answers and provide relief. Guests need accurate information, so I reached out directly to the contractor, 3D Building and Design, headed by Don Roth, who was receptive and responsive to guests’ needs.

3D Building and Design does excellent work, and has done the lovely improvements at the achingly beautiful Hotel Wailea, a Relais & Châteaux property, and one of our very favourite places on Maui. Indeed, our guests know about the Hotel Wailea through our 'welcome package' materials that encourage them to spend time there, particularly at the magical “Restaurant at Hotel Wailea” (formerly “Capische?”), which is surely one of the finest locations for a sun-down experience . . . after Hale Kai O’Kihei, of course!

Significant pressure was put on the Board by me and other owners to dramatically improve its project management of the undertaking; the Board reacted well, including agreeing to start the tiling at the south end of the building; the pool is at this end of the building, and tiling here first means it will be operational as soon as possible. Indeed, 3D Builders and Design have secured the services of one of Maui’s premier fencing companies, now ‘on-call’ to respond the moment they are advised of pool-tiling completion to install the fence in order that the pool can be drained, refilled, and opened.

Weekend work has started, with additional crew brought in from other jobs to speed progress on weekends and during the week. There will continue to be adherence to our “Quiet Hours.” Morning coffee and afternoon sunsets can be enjoyed free of noise from tile cutting and the like. If there is noise after 5:00 PM, it’s to ‘finish’ the job properly for the day to complete a row, or to take advantage of prepared tile-setting materials, i.e., tile mud or grout. 3D Builders and Design, alive to this special time of day at HKOK -- and its significance to our guests -- is taking great care.

At this point, the full tiles have been laid from 101 to 110. And laying of the more complicated tiles at the lanais from 101 to 108 — which require the electric tile saw to cut them — has finished! In fact, with only final cuts to be made for the complicated pool-deck tiles, sealing has started at our end and will soon finish. This is good news, and means that most of the noise at our end of the building -- from the tile saw itself -- is very, very close to being behind us.

The drive is now on to move similarly quickly along the north end of the building, again using additional weekend and weekday labour as earlier, and still honouring our “Quiet Hours.”

As the project moves north of 110, the noise of any tile cutting heard down our end of the building will diminish. And because the middle part of HKOK juts out towards the beach -- starting at the north end of our 208 lanai -- this affords the 208 lanai an additional structural buffer to noise as the project moves north to 120.

After that, a double-back of sorts to cut and put in place edging tile along the length of the face of the 300-foot deck at the lawn.

The lounge chairs are out, and guests are enjoying sunning on the lawn. The BBQs are being enjoyed at each end of the building. Access to the beach is unfettered. Guests of 208 usually access the deck, lawn, and beach through the mid-building breezeway at 110. This will continue to be the case until the tiling occurs at that access, at which time, for a day or two, Resident Managers Sue and John will post kindly notices requesting that guests use the north- or south-end entrances to the deck, lawn, and beach. Foot washes/hoses are located at the breezeway access point to wash off sand and rinse snorkel and other water gear, and will be accessible at other access points as tiling requires.

Progress is now being made rapidly. Great credit to 3D Building and Design, and Don Roth for driving hard, while being sensitive to guests' needs. I think the schedule for completion is building some substance; a month late, but the end is in sight.

So, significant progress through the past several days was required, and has been achieved. No completion date has been announced, so it's irresponsible to speculate; local rental agencies have been doing this and it's a tremendous disservice to guests who travel a long way and are expecting a completed job on arrival. But I am very pleased at the tiling progress.

All that matters is the interests of current and arriving guests. While this project has shown that Boards and rental agencies often cannot be counted on to provide accurate information to guests, that's not the approach I take. For our guests, it’s a package of support, empathy, assistance, and compensation that is the order of the day. And from me, that's what they're receiving. Full stop.


Thank you so much for considering Hawaii, Maui, and Hale Kai O’Kihei for your vacation. With so many wonderful and exotic holiday destinations to choose from, the Internet bringing access to them right to your home, and vacation time and dollars so precious, we appreciate you taking the time to visit our site.

In finishing, furnishing, and maintaining our apartment 208, we started from a simple premise: what do we like about where we stay when we’re on holiday? Whether we’re doing a home exchange, staying in a reciprocal private club in another city, or in an apartment or condo booked through VRBO, we want a place that speaks to intimacy and individuality.

We don’t like cold, impersonal, one-size-fits-all experiences, where the bare minimum is what’s provided. We want to stay in places where our needs are important, where our time spent travelling to the destination and the cost of getting there is understood and appreciated. We want to stay in homes and apartments where the human touch of the owner abounds — where the owner’s attention to detail and focus on our experience are always top of mind.

It’s about passion. Your experience with us needs to be exceptional. From the moment you walk in the door, we want you to experience an ocean-front home away from home that is warm and welcoming. Perhaps it’s the colours, the cleanliness, or the carefully selected artwork. Maybe it’s the fresh flowers and wine, or the L'Occitane en Provence toiletries. Or perhaps it's one of the dozens of other little touches — like the beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, binoculars — that make arriving and getting started on your time off and time away just that much quicker and easier.

From gorgeous cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen and bath, elegant granite kitchen and bath countertops, Kohler fixtures, Grohe faucets, exquisite shower with artist-designed cast-glass panels and found-pebble floor, virtually seamless 18” x 18” tile from the front door to the outer edge of the lanai, top-end appliances including flat-glass cooktop, ultra low-sound dishwasher and compact clothes washer . . .

. . . to a work-of-art ‘glass wall’ to the lanai with feather-light centre-opening doors, a peaceful but high-efficiency Fujitsu Halcyon 18,000 BTU split air conditioner, and yes, even an electric sunshade on the lanai allowing full-lanai use and ocean views, even at the height of the afternoon sun . . .

. . . and backed by only the highest quality and thread-count linens and beddings for refreshing tropical sleep, unit 208 builds on the perfect beachside location of Hale Kai O’Kihei and puts you in the picture in one of the most luxurious and fully outfitted units this jewel of a building has to offer.

This one-bedroom, second-floor oasis will be your ‘home away from home’ with all the amenities you will need for the Maui vacation for which you've been waiting. And Kihei, located on the sunny, southern shore of Maui, is only 20 minutes from the airport in Kahului.

This is a licensed vacation rental, so book with confidence. As well, in renting this unit, you are renting directly from the owner, not an agent or third-party representative. The owner has an Internal Revenue Service Tax Identification Number and a Hawaii Tax Identification Number (111-920-3328-01) for the collection and remittance of State of Hawaii Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT) and State of Hawaii General Excise Tax (GET).

Again, thank you for choosing Hawaii and Maui, and for considering our apartment 208 at Hale Kai O'Kihei.

About Adam Leamy, Owner

We're like many of the guests we've met at Hale Kai O' Kihei over the years -- we've got demanding jobs, and put a lot of effort into our work. So there are times when we just want to get away from the stress for a few days, and get to a place where living is just easier, the demands less.

That philosophy guided our renovation and redecoration of our first Hale Kai O’Kihei apartment when we purchased it in 2008 (and have just sold). The same approach influenced the additions and touches we've added to this stunningly renovated unit #208, which we purchased in 2011.

We've added more “Maui” colour though a restfully exotic paint palette, thoughtful furnishings, finishings, and appliances, and additional locally sourced vintage Hawaiian artwork. We don’t like to pack too much when we come to Hale Kai O’Kihei, so we stock snorkels, fins, and masks, boogie boards and beach chairs right down to binoculars and tropical CDs for our guests and us to use.

We’re always learning more about what makes a stay at Hale Kai O’Kihei an outstanding experience for ourselves and our guests. And with #208, one of the nicest units in Hale Kai O’Kihei -- itself the best in boutique accommodation in South Maui -- we’ve perfected the delivery of the Hawaiian experience that we and our guests have dreamt of!

So join us in the great Maui adventure at Hale Kai O’Kihei! Come and visit and discover the Hawaiian holiday of your dreams!

Adam Leamy, Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Adam Leamy, Owner chose Maui

We’ve been visiting HKOK since 1997, and bought our first apartment in 2008, selling it this spring. This remarkable place, and the experience it offers, gets in your blood. Departures for us and our guests aren’t the end -- they’re just the start of planning for the next trip. And that’s the best way to finish a holiday -- making plans for the next one.

Each time we visit, HKOK delivers. Sometimes we’re doing errands and chores; other times, we’re true ‘guests’ ourselves, relishing the chance to do blissfully, decadently nothing. Just taking in the sights, the sounds, and the beauty of it all. And the great thing is that it’s all there, visible from the private lanai or for direct interaction by way of a few paces across the lawn, through the palm trees to the beach.

In March 2011, on a beach walk from HKOK, past the oceanfront estates on Halama St. through Kalama Park, and over a coffee at Kihei Caffe, the decision was made to buy #208. Why? Because in a world of sometimes wearying change HKOK is a welcome, restorative constant. And therein lies the HKOK charm: Shopping and services are a block away and those farther afield run the gamut from Macy’s to Tiffany’s. For us, the real draw continues to be this simple delight: Once we get in the door of #208, and put our groceries away, we're set, and can experience much of what we want from Maui, even whale watching, from our own lanai or our own front yard and beach.

The lure of Maui’s beaches, restaurants and places to watch the world slowly go by remains. But 208, uniquely renovated, offers a wondrous Hawaiian experience, all day long -- one many of us dreamt of in childhood on ‘sick days’ in colder climes, when game-show hosts Bob Barker or Tom Kennedy whisked winners away to Hawaii, affording us all a Technicolor glimpse of this exotic paradise.

Sitting on the edge of the beach with a glass of wine, long after the sun has disappeared? Still a star-gazer's paradise, and an awesome way to end any day.

What makes this condo unique

We love walking the beach first thing in the morning, before the sun peeks out over the edge of Haleakala, when ours are the first footprints in the sand.

We love the way that in the mid-morning, the water just off the shore is dead calm, and is as many shades of blue, blue-green, and turquoise you can count.

We love watching the horizon out past the shallows, where the water turns a deep, alluring blue, when the breaching Humpbacks send plumes of bright white spray into the air.

We love the midday when beach walkers and sun bathers take a break from the waves and the sun, seeking shade and sustenance, and a quiet falls over Hale Kai O’Kihei.

We love the mid-afternoon awakening when the wind picks up, the waves are more playful, drawing windsurfers and kite surfers to the shore and the challenges beyond.

We love the late afternoon, when the sun accelerates its race for the far side of Lanai and the lawn is a velvety canvas of yellows and greens, set against the dark slope of West Maui to the north, and a still-clear sky speaks to the promise of stars and far-away dreams to follow.

We love when the sun finally winks out behind Lanai, and those who have assembled on the lawn and beach to watch its farewell hug, kiss, or squeeze hands, in that knowing gesture which acknowledges that this one moment, this one sunset, experienced together, was what called them to Maui, and which they will use, in the years ahead, as the touchstone to remember their trip here, and why it was so special.

And then we love when darkness falls, and the two of us head down to the beach, lie back in the sand, and take in the enormity of the clarity and depth of the wondrous night sky.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note to let you know we are at the airport waiting to depart. We had a great time and managed to criss cross the island by land, sea and air.

Thanks for the hospitality; we really enjoyed the condo - the location and views were amazing.

Owner's Response: Thank you D & A for choosing Hawaii and Maui to start your married lives together. Your note from the airport certainly tells us all -- in no-nonsense terms -- that your time on Maui was well spent, indeed. You did the place well, and did it up right. Competent, responsible, and self-directed; your journey together is clearly going to be a grand one! Adam

My wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We love this apartment! It feels like home to us. I just have to share with you that I have always loved the Portmeirion dishware in your condo. Every time we go there I comment on them to my husband. So this trip he said to just order them!!! They were waiting for me when I got home. Just perfect in my Island home. I chose celadon and biscuit colors and also one large bowl. Not only are they lovely, but after all the use in Maui, no chipping. So thanks for the inspiration. I love them!

Owner's Response: A great note! I’ll respond to it in a moment, but first, a bit about your trip for others reading this page. Michelle and I just returned from HKOK. Now, one thing I quite enjoy about visiting is reading our Guest Book in which guests have taken the time to make an entry. The entries run the gamut, really: Restaurant advice is shared, a nice beach find is noted, but most frequently, a special moment about the trip is illuminated — from watching the turtles just off our beach, enjoying the front-row seats the lanai provides to stunning Maui sunsets, to special milestones reached or achievements celebrated during the stay. I was delighted to read of the wonderful time shared with your daughter and son-in-law on their 20th anniversary, with so many friends and family along for the celebration! Your lovely note in the Guest Book prompted me to re-read your entry from 2014 when you marked your 50th Anniversary. I have to say that your history with HKOK is as rich as any I’ve experienced or heard about — it’s perhaps one of the strongest guest ties to HKOK that I’ve come across. Thank you for adding so much to that very special place. Now, to your note above: We love that Sophie Conran dinnerware, too! The only pieces that have ever broken were in shipping from Macy’s on the Mainland or from here in Victoria, BC. They’ve held up so very well, I’ve often wondered if guests have ever used them. In truth, I’m the shopper; I fell in love with that Conran pattern, and the colours. This past weekend, I bought some lovely Hotel Collection towels in a blue-green ocean colour (“Aegean”). Once the Black Pearl (the darker Pacific blue currently in use) runs its course in the next two quarters and we use up the last sets, I’ll ship down twelve HC sets in mauve (“Lilac”), then move to the Aegean. If you think that sounds like a lot of back-ups, don’t even get me started on the Vera Wang toasting flutes! I kid ye not, I sourced 17 sets of those toasting flutes — I thought that with the Prosecco we supply, they’d be breaking all the time. Turns out, I was wrong: With you and all our guests, we’ve been very, very fortunate to welcome kind and caring people who take great care. And in just having returned from what was surely our best visit in years, all I can say is thank you to you two and to all our guests for all that you do to add to enjoyment of the apartment and that lovely property on the very edge of the Pacific. Thank you. Adam

Your Maui Stunner

  • 5 of 5

Still the best place to stay on Maui. The Hawaiian luxury of the unit, with everything you could possibly think of supplied, and, however much you've seen on your travels, you can never get tired of the palms-and-ocean view from Adam and Michelle's lanai. Thanks Adam, for setting up my late arrival with your prep crew on short notice. A too-quick visit, but perfect as ever. I'm always amazed that you and Michelle are able to improve on what already is the top-notch Maui experience. New chairs on the lanai, and the Hawaii magazines on the coffee table. (I've seen these in airports but have never really had the time to actually look at them. Got some good ideas from them for next time.) I travel a lot, and I'm always on the lookout for upgrades. In Maui, I've stopped looking, simply because I can't conceive of a more perfect Maui experience (short of paying three or four times the amount for a hotel penthouse). So, thanks for all your ministrations and attention to detail. It makes a stay, whether short or long, an event to be looked foward to, enjoyed completely without worry, and turn into the best of one's vacation memories. I'm already thinking about the next time I can get to your Maui stunner.

Owner's Response: Always nice to hear from the fellow traveller. And as usual, always the keen eye for detail, too. Yes, new Tropitones on the lanai. They make these amazing sling chairs, and for us tall folk, there is simply no better product out there. Pricey, like my Herman Miller Aeron, but there you go, just the way of it. But for lanai furniture, there's none better. I thought you'd like Hawaii Magazine. I've been reading it for years, and I like the care they take in what they include in each issue. A bit more discerning, made possible by their terrain -- all the islands, not just one. In the fall and winter -- the darker months at home -- there is no greater joy than seeing it's cover blast of Hawaii colour arrive through the post. Not as good as being here, but surely the next best thing. So a bit of a twist. This past month, I bought one-year subscriptions for our most recent guests, several regular guests, and all guests who will be arriving over the next year. About 25 or so; they should get their first issue in late August or September. For some, maybe it'll rekindle good memories of the trip, anniversary, honeymoon, or the simple 're-connect' to what's important that they experienced here. For others, perhaps it will assist in trip planning for their upcoming Maui experience. And for some, it might just inspire a return to Maui or for an adventure on another island that will afford them the chance to see Hawaii from a new perspective. All sound like good things to me. Michelle and I are just wrapping up our visit. And I have to say that it's been the best visit in years. HKOK has never looked better, the lawn and beach have been quiet, and our guests have done us the very kindest turn; they've cared for our place as if it were their own -- so a very heartfelt 'thank you' to all who have stayed with us for being such gracious guests. And to you, as well, fellow traveller. Whenever your travels bring you by Maui, whether for one night of several, you have a home here. It's always a pleasure to get word from you that you're heading this way, have checked our calendar, and look forward to an 'HKOK top-up.' I'm delighted when we can assist. Until the next time. Adam

We just returned from spending three weeks in Maui. It's our fourth time staying in this condo and I believe 13 times on this property. People ask why do u keep going back! Well it's easy! The condo itself itself has all the amenities of home, and the decor has a beautiful Hawaiian feel to it. The view from the lanai is stunning - 50 swaying palm trees and the soft rolling surf. It also has the best views for sunsets - no need to go out and find a place to have dinner to watch the sun go down when u can watch it from your own lanai. The beach is safe for swimming and it's a delight to watch the three large green turtles floating about during the day or riding in the surf later in the day.

We had a friend come visit who usually stays up in busy Kanapalli every year and after spending the day with us he said "is it always this quite and peaceful'. When we answered yes, he said 'you guys have something very special here'.

Thanks again Michelle and Adam for letting us enjoy this Maui paradise. Mahalo! Brian and Sue

Owner's Response: Brian and Sue, thank you for being such wonderful guests at HKOK through the years, and for staying with us. I get such a kick out of the notes we exchange as you set up your stays, in which you advise of the trip’s Grand Plan. Twice, you shipped your bicycle so Brian could explore the island. This time, it was an inflatable stand-up paddleboard which, for some reason, called to mind the old Dick Van Dyke Show episode in which Laura receives this package, with strict instructions not to open it (which, of course, she does). And yet, with all this excitement and organization, you find time to count the palm trees! Without doubt, you two have found the perfect balance in enjoying HKOK. I so look forward to your visits, as we’re so very pleased that you get so much out of Maui, HKOK and the apartment. I’m particularly touched at your note, above, and several of your emails this year in which you noticed upgrades and other improvements. When we get this feedback, it inspires us to do more to enhance the guest experience (and we’re guests, too!), so your visits and nuanced eye do indeed make this lovely apartment, and even HKOK, better for us all! Yes, in HKOK and this apartment — as your friend noted — we do have something special here. All of us who happen upon this oceanfront gem. That achievement exists, in no small way, through the visits and contributions made by you, and through caring and considerate guests like you who HKOK is fortunate to welcome. Thank you, for being such lovely guests and friends to HKOK. Without being presumptuous, I cannot wait to hear of your next trip and the Grand Plan you have in store for it! Adam

Spectacular location and a stones throw to the beach, ocean surf with stunning views every direction

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two weeks (April 23 to May 7) in unit 208 and had the best vacation ever !! Adam is a pleasure to talk with and offers unforgettable amendities during your stay. While visiting don't forget to spend at least two weeks to see and do everything Maui offers. Especially drive to Hakeakla summit, spend the night in Hana to visit the O'Heo Gulch (seven sacred pools) and visit Charles Lindberg gravesite, drive on ALL the roads on Maui as we did and fly with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters over the West Maui Mountains and over Molokai. Too many other joyful and relax full things to do in anything less than two weeks. We will be back again someday. Thank you Adam, Michelle and Barbara for a spectacular visit.

Owner's Response: When you wrote and said this was your first trip back to Hawaii in 30 years, and Mrs. M’s first trip, we thought your days would be long exciting ones — and from your lovely note above, they certainly were! And in your personable letter, you’ve identified one of the great things about Maui: It offers everyone the type of holiday they’re looking for. Some have a packed agenda, with tours around the island, and sojourns to those special, intimate places that Maui has in remarkable abundance. Others seek the chance to have a few days to enjoy a warmer, simpler life, free from the stresses of work and complexities of everyday life. As your note underscores, HKOK is perfectly situated for either type of stay. It’s the perfect base, convenient to all the island’s attractions and features. But it’s also a perfect home for guests, too, where enjoying Hawaii, seeing the water, the beach, and hearing the palms rustle as they sway in the wind means never having to leave the comfort of your own lanai! Thank you for making such a special trip, and for staying with us; we’d love to have you back, and hope that your schedule allows you an earlier return to Hawaii for your next trip than for your second! Adam

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Maui a few times and without a doubt this was our best experience. The condo is exactly as described and beautiful with all the amenities one could hope for. Close to the beach, quiet , unforgettable views and easy access to amenities .The unit is fully, and efficiently air-conditioned ,but even on the hottest days of our stay when the temperature was in the high 80's the prevailing breezes and electric sun canopy kept us comfortable as we sat and read our books and sipped our drinks. We appreciated greatly the in-suite and super quiet washing machine which enabled us to travel with minimal changes of clothing and yet have the appropriate "outfits" for special evenings out. This was our second trip to HOK and we are making plans for a return visit since we know that the will be no stress to our stay in this particular piece of paradise where the thoughtful owners have literally thought of, and done, everything to make the stay perfect

Owner's Response: Thank you for returning, and for writing such a thoughtful note. Without being presumptuous, I believe I have some idea of how essential it is for you both to have a place you can go where the stress and demands of the responsibilities left behind can be quickly shed. It takes planning and attention to create a place that facilitates that return to balance, and all I can say is that your words are what make the undertaking so very worthwhile. You are welcome any time, and rest easy that we'll never ease up on making sure that we do all we can to speed our guests' transition from stress-filled days to welcome calm and quiet. We know just how vital that is. Adam

A gently sloping sandy beach leads to rewarding swimming and snorkeling at Hale Kai O'Kihei (two snorkel sets are located in the bedroom closet), with low-tide opportunities to walk along the edge of the reef and experience small, beautiful aquatic life.

We offer guests staying 28 nights or more 10% off posted rates.

Year-in-advance reservations: Airlines generally don’t post their flight schedules more than a year in advance. For guests who have booked their stay with us in advance of airlines’ publication of their schedules, a difficulty has been created when airline schedules are announced, and flight options don’t coordinate with the dates guests have booked with us. And because we are often fully booked, we’ve been unable to change guests’ accommodation dates to match flights. This was very frustrating for guests, so we don't accept reservations more than a year in advance of guest arrival at Hale Kai O’Kihei. That said, we offer our current guests the first opportunity to book the apartment for the same time period in the following year. To take advantage of this, please make your reservations for the following year during your stay.

Lutron lighting switches control overhead lights in the bathroom, hallway and kitchen, allowing you to set the light level to create the right mood -- set the preferred low-light level, and with one tap, soft lights come to life for a romantic, spa-like atmosphere; with two taps, full brightness. Tommy Bahama “Pineapple Lane” fan with mahogany blades in living room, and Casablanca 'Capistrano' fan (also with mahogany blades) in the bedroom will evoke South Seas thoughts, while gently caressing with cool air. Outside, a lovely beachfront lawn, dotted with palm trees links you to the beach and blue waters beyond. When you want a break from the sun, but want to stay close to the water's edge, you can move your supplied beach and lounge chairs under the shade of rustling palms to read and relax, with the waves, whales, and horizon always in sight, and the beach just steps away.
