Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Aloha to paradise. Our unit A204, is considered to be one of the finest locations within the complex with a direct ocean view! Can you imagine yourself having breakfast out on a large lanai while enjoying that fabulous ocean view! The boats pass by on their way to Molokini for a snorkeling adventure. The whales, when in season, are also viewable from our Lanai.

We have upgraded our kitchen with granite counter tops with a tumbled marble back splash. All new Whirlpool stainless steel appliances make cooking and cleaning an ease should you desire to do so. We have just completed the remodeling of our upstairs bathroom. A walk in shower with a tropical glass pane. New vanity, fixtures, mirror and tiled floor. We have just purchased a new couch, 3 chairs, turtle cocktail table, and end tables to enhance the tropical atmosphere. We also just installed hardwood bamboo floors in the upstairs bedroom and built a 1/2 wall with louver doors for more privacy and ease of use. We recently upgraded our AC units that are whisper quiet and resort quality.

Maui Kamaole is a low density complex on 23 acres of one of the most beautiful tropical gardens in all of Maui. It is considered to be one of Maui's premier condominium luxury resorts.

Our unit is situated on a small hill across the road from Kamaole III Beach, one of Maui's finest beaches for all water activities. It is a great family beach. There are two swimming pools and hot tubs along with two tennis courts. It is a very quiet complex away from the usual noise.

Our non-smoking unit is a generous two bedroom, two bath, 1052 square feet. It also has three lanai's for an additional 225 square feet. The downstairs bedroom has two twin beds, that can be pushed together if desired. The upstairs bedroom has a California King with a full private bathroom. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room, queen size with sheets and pillows in the linen closet.

There are six ceiling fans, along with three air conditioners. However, with both lanai doors open the ocean breezes generally keep the unit quite cool!

About Jack Goodwin

Karen and I purchased this property in hopes of retiring in Maui for at least 3 or 4 months out of the year in the near future. We have been coming to the islands for over 30 years and Maui of course is our favorite. We feel it has everything we need to relax and yet there is still plenty to do to keep us entertained! We love to walk the beaches in the morning, and in the evening have a glass of wine on the beach or on our Lanai to watch the sunset.

Jack Goodwin purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jack Goodwin chose Maui

We looked at numerous properties before deciding on South Maui and Maui Kamaole in particular. We wanted something very tropical and spacious, so Maui Kamaole fit the bill perfectly. We consider our location as one of the best in the complex, because we sit up on a small hill with a direct ocean view with little to no noise from South Kihei road or the pool areas. Yet we are a quick 1 minute walk to the main pool and a 3 minute walk to Kam III beach. The boat ramp is very convenient for snorkeling adventures.

What makes this condo unique

A204 is an end unit, so we only have 1 neighbor to our left and nobody above us. It is a very peaceful location. The beaches in South Maui are not nearly as crowded and the snorkeling is great just about all times of the year. We are close to the grocery stores and restaurants, yet far enough way that we don't get the congestion. We are just across from KAM III beach, which is regarded as the best family beach anywhere. (Boogie boarding, snorkel, tide pools, swimming)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful condo. Our daughter was married just down the road on a gorgeous beach. The groom and his parents stayed in the unit across the hall, which was also a great place to stay. We had a good time with the beach toys, took the Pacific Whale snorkel cruise and the drove the road to Hana. The wedding supper was at Sorrento's on the beach, just a short walk from the condo.

An Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing. It was quiet and very relaxing. Assessable to all the main points. Walking distant to some of the restaurants. Everything was as described. Absolutely perfect!

amazing ocean view!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for almost two weeks with our two teenagers who absolutely loved the condo. We went on excursions and the beach and pool every day and used the beach chairs and beach towels that the owner graciously supplied. We walked both norh and south of the condo to get shaved ice and try the three Kam beaches which so clean and had outdoor showers, and we also used the small foot outdoor shower on the balcony. We cooked in alot to save money and had ample pots and utensils and even was supplied dish detergent. We would love to go back to Kihei, which is central to all tourist attractions, even Hana.

Wonderful location and view!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the location near the beaches for snorkeling and walking, the ocean view from the lanai and the comfort and amenities of the condo. It's nicely furnished and has stainless steel appliances. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would recommend this particular condo and would stay here again without question. Kihei has a great local vibe with authentic Hawaiian food such as at Da Kitchen cafe and this was a really beautiful condo to return to each day. Mahalo!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our week in this unit! From the moment we walked in we were blown away by the view- lush landscaping and a wide ocean front expanse.The landscaping totally obscures the road, and we never saw the road or heard any cars, just tropical landscaping and water! So quiet. We loved sitting on the lanai with our family enjoying meals, long chats and beautiful sunsets. The furnishings are high quality, yet comfortable. The air-conditioners are new, work wonderfully and are whisper quiet. The location of the condo is also great, right across from the beach. However, we did enjoy exploring other beaches on Maui. Our favorite was Ulua Beach in Wailea, very calm surf and lots of parking. While this condo is in South Kihei, it borders on Wailea which is very upscale yet relaxed. We enjoyed the happy hour meals at 5 Palms and Gannon's, both beautiful settings with ocean views. We were so sad that our week came to an end. With all the choices for vacation rentals we were so happy we found this unit. The large front loading washer and dryer were also a bonus. We will definitely be back next year!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in our little piece of paradise. We too love the beaches in South Maui for their beauty and peacefulness. Wailea/Kihei have so many new places for Happy hours now. We especially like the Monkey Pod for the food and music. The 5 palms is very nice for the view and the easy walk from our unit. The new AC's are a great upgrade, that are cool and quiet. We truly hope you make it back to Maui.

Great Location - Great View - Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We were all really impressed with the place, the location and the view. The place was clean, organized and just well looked after. The condo complex itself is also very well maintained. I highly recommend this VRBO property to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We come over once or twice a year to do routine maintenance. We generally do an upgrade on a yearly basis, so our unit stays fresh and up to date.

Maui Kamaole 2 bedroom condo with ocean view

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our recent family vacation. We were in walking distance of Kamaole III beach and the beach chairs and toys were great to have available. The furnishings were very nice, really felt like we were at our tropical vacation home. Plenty of space to relax, prepare meals and sit all of us on the lanai. We really were happy to have a washer/dryer, kept everybody fresh. We had easy access to the entire island from this location and now understand the value of being based on the south side of the island. Sunny when the north and west had rain and cloudy conditions. VRBO provided great followup information of our reservation. We liked the ability to contact the condo owner to ask specific questions before we booked this address. His condo was clean with quality furnishings and accessories. Their website was very easy to navigate and find the best vacation condo for our needs. We will use VRBO to rent this condo again.
