About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath ground floor condominium home underwent a complete renovation. It has a gorgeous decor and has air conditioning.

Conveniently located on the ground floor, this unit is on the south corner of the building farthest away from the street. It is very easy to park near the home and come into the end without having to go through the entire building each time you come and go. We are only a few short steps to the pool and grassy lawn, and a few more to the sandy beach and ocean beyond. The view is as shown in the photos and is considered a partial view. You can see the ocean from both the master bedroom and the lanai. We enjoy breakfast and lunch on the lanai and usually have dinner on the rooftop deck to watch the sunset.

The master bedroom has a California King-size bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV and walk-in closet. The windows have with louvered shutters and the bedding is Tommy Bahama. The ensuite master bathroom is remodeled and enlarged.

The second bedroom features twin beds that can be bound together to make a comfortable second King-size bed if desired. (We have a top of the line converter kit with a mattress topper and will have it all ready in this is the configuration you wish - we have slept on it and you can not tell it was not a king-size mattress - very comfy). The bedding also includes Tommy Bahama quilts. The second bathroom includes an extra deep bathtub with shower.

The kitchen has been enlarged and features tile flooring, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is an eating bar with pendant lights and counter stools and a wide selection of small appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster, coffee grinder, rice maker, etc.) to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

For entertainment, this suite includes a flat screen television in the living room complete with DVD player. There are also flat screen televisions in each of the bedrooms. In addition, there is an IPOD dock in both the living room and Master Bedroom.

We have wireless internet service and a secured router. There is also a small safe for you to secure your valuables if you wish.

We have been adding some wonderful local artwork to our home. We are using many local Hawaiian artists. You may recognize Mark MacKay's ceramic koi or Scott Green's metal honu or even a couple of Alex Arthur's exciting and colorful local photographs.

We purchased our home in September of 2011 and completed a full remodel mid-December. We love the area and even if you are not staying with us, we encourage you to stay at the Royal Mauian. It is a beautifully maintained resort and has the best location in Kihei. It is the only resort that I know of that has that fabulous roof top garden with BBQ grills and tables and a spectacular view of the ocean, nearby islands and the Haleakala volcano. The guests are also very friendly enjoying a glass of wine together in the evening or watching their children and grandchildren play together.

About Susan Sipe

We are the Sipe Family: Al, Susan, Parker and Spencer, from the Seattle, WA area. This photo is from September 2012 when we had the rare opportunity for all of us to vacation together. In this photo we are 'On the Road to Hana'.

Susan Sipe purchased this condo in 2011

Why Susan Sipe chose Maui

As our two boys have gotten older we wanted a place where we could all meet, relax and play together. It took us nearly 2 years to find the ideal property - we believe that the Royal Mauian is it. This gorgeous beach-side condominium is well-maintained and walking distance to everything. There is so much to do for all generations.

What makes this condo unique

While Seattle is beautiful and green in the summer - it can get pretty gray and dreary from the fall through the spring. We love to come to Maui for a 'sunshine break'. It really improves everyone's mood. The water is great for swimming and other water sports.We have just started to paddle-board - it is harder than it looks. Royal Mauian is perfect for us - the sandy beaches are right there and the lava outcropping is great for snorkling and scuba diving - a hobby we all share. Recently we started naming the turtles that live off the shore. We are eager to get to know the whales that well also!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning. Josh and I wanted to thank you for letting us use your home. It was clean, updated and so comfortable. The location in town made it easy for us to walk to dinner or to get shave ice or for my son to surf.

We moved to the Grand Wailea after your house and although it was BIG, oceanfront rooms,we missed the low key, laid back ease of your place.

Thank you so much. We wish we had stayed the entire 10 days there!

Clean cozy condo by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! Having a condo on the first floor, steps from the pool and beach made everything so convient and easy. The condo was clean and well stocked with beach essentials, including a host of chairs, toys and unbrellas, which was great! The inside of the condo was well decorated and updated and was a great place to retire to after a day outdoors. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the fact that all the doors (bedrooms and bathrooms) were not soild doors but louvred doors, sort of like shutters, so they offered no privacy or sound protection. They allowed great circulation and air flow through the condo, which I understand is their purpose, but especially staying with other family members, (and ones with a small child) it was unfortunate to not be able to retreat to private/quite place within the condo. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the FIVE STAR review Briana. We have only stayed at the home with other adults or adult children so I really did not notice a lack of privacy with the doors. I choose them for their tropical look and for the air circulation as you mentioned. I can see that having a small child with you might increase the noise level in the home. I am glad that you enjoyed your vacation and hope you will visit again. Susan

A few steps to beautiful beaches!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this Maui condo!

We also loved the pool/lounge area right next to the ocean and rooftop bbq area. The views day or night are stunning! Susan (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. Mahalo Susan!

Owner's Response: Thank you Maggie. We are so glad that you enjoyed the fabulous location - you can walk to everything that you need. We also love the roof top deck and spend most evenings there watching the sunset, enjoying happy hour or barbequing dinner. Come back soon Maggie!

Royal Mauin #119, Kihei, Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had our first visit to Maui and could not have selected a better place to spend our vacation. The condo was a perfect fit for our family and friends who were also staying near us. The roomy and nicely furnished condo provided a great space for gathering and the privacy of not being directly ocean view kept the condo quiet from neighbors and beach goers. The beach access was easy and the snorkeling was great right off the shore. Grocery stores and restaurants were within walking distance as were outdoor shopping. It really was a great value and we hope to visit again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad Linda's family enjoyed their stay. Different Guests look for different things in their accommodations. I agree with Linda that while we do not have a huge ocean view, our home is quiet and much cooler than the front row units. It is also much more affordable. We will look forward to having Linda's family back again soon.

Great location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

The unit is tucked away on the side of the building on the bottom floor - if you are traveling with a lot of stuff, it is easy to run back and forth to the car. The host is wonderful, giving personal advice on many things and being very accommodating when it came to flexible check in and check out time. Some advice for future renters - no need to stop at a store near the airport - there is a Safeway near the condo and a Foodland. If you are in to craft beer, walk one mile north along the beach and go to What Ales You - nice uncrowded place for some good quality beer (and wine). If you head south to the resort area to go to the public beaches - get there by 9am to get a parking spot.

Owner's Response: We are so glad Tom and his family enjoyed their vacation on Maui. Also very glad he discovered "What Ales You". Windy is a friend and it is a great spot - great brats and salads. This condo does have a terrific location - between two gorgeous beaches and walking distance to over a dozen restaurants, great coffee shops and some darling boutiques.

wonderful condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our time at Susans condo.

It is beautiful, has everything you need, including beach chairs and an umbrella, and the location is awesome, right between two beaches. Everything was sparkling clean, well stocked and very centrally located. Great morning coffee and milkshakes right across the street, and lots of places to walk to for drinks and dinner.

Snorkelled and bogey boarded right on the beaches at the condo, saw lots of turtles!

Would highly recommend this as a great place to stay and we hope to come back. No problems getting in and we were allowed a late check out which gave us a full day before our trip home.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great vacation. We try to be flexible with early check-ins and late check-outs if it will not inconvenience the subsequent Guests. Our cleaners do a terrific job and we are so glad that you noticed. :-)

Sun bathing, relaxing, snorkeling is right off the end of our grassy lawn. Also very fun and relaxing is the Ocenafront Yoga at the Nalu right next door. The Royal Mauian has a spectacular location - it is a short walk to many wonderful restaurants and shops. If you like to walk - you can take the beach down to the Shops at Wailea (We like to go in the morning for coffee). Snorkling is very good off of the lava flow in front of the resort. Also I have heard the whales are already beginning to arrive, but have not seen them myself. It is spectacular to watch the mother whales and their calves swimming right in front of the resort. there are also green sea turtles that call this area home.
