Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

E Komo Mai! Welcome to Kamaole Beach Royale, our home away from home.

We enjoy a spectacular view of the beach, the ocean, and the neighbour islands from the fifth floor of Kamaole Beach Royale, a six-storey, building situated right across the street from Kamaole Beach #1. Kamaole Beach #1 is one of three famous beaches within walking distance, and was voted Maui’s #1 swimming beach by Maui Revealed, (2012 Edition).

Our condo, which we purchased in March, 2011, is tastefully furnished and decorated, featuring original Hawaiian artwork gathered over the many years our family lived on Maui, Hawaii’s “Valley Isle”.

In the last few months we purchased high-quality linens, bath towels, beach towels, and “Hawaiiana” designer dishes. We installed luxurious, durable 'Smart Strand Silk' carpeting in our living room and bedroom. Our kitchen is fully-stocked with everything you need to enjoy home-cooked dinners on our ocean-view lanai. We keep pantry essentials stocked for our guests, including tea, coffee, spices, olive oil and vinegar.

Our master bedroom has a television, telephone, and queen-sized bed with 800 thread count sheets and custom, designer bed spread. If you need extra sleeping space, we have an electric, queen-sized air bed for your convenience. A five panel shoji screen (stored under bed) provides a private sleeping space.

We are pleased to offer our guests the use of our many beach toys, including two quality snorkel sets (man’s and woman’s mask, fins, and snorkel) beach chairs, umbrella, frisbees, various beach balls, and coolers and “cold bags” - great for picnics on the beach or for hiking up Haleakala. We have binoculars on hand for whale-watching from the lanai during whale season (December - April).

We provide complementary high-speed Wi Fi and toll-free calling to the US mainland and to Canada. Our condo is maintained on an ongoing basis with assistance from our on-island representatives and cleaners, Eric and Cathy, who make sure everything is in place prior to your arrival. They are available to provide any assistance you might need during your stay.

The views from our private lanai are especially spectacular at sunset. At sunrise the tiny island birds will greet you from the palm tree fronds that reach the lanai, and, if you provide even the slightest encouragement, they will be on the lanai with you.

Kamaole Beach Royale is a beautifully landscaped, concrete-frame, and, therefore, incredibly quiet building. Take advantage of the lovely pool and surrounding gardens, and, as a special treat, visit the KBR rooftop garden which is equipped with tables, lounges and commercial grade BBQ’s. Enjoy the 180 view from the rooftop garden and meet other KBR guests over a sunset drink.

Or, just chill out on your private lanai in # 509 and watch the sun slowly set over the ocean and the neighbour islands. If you like, try our conch shell on the lanai: it's a Hawaiian tradition to blow the conch at sunset. If you need a conch lesson, take in the free hulu show and torch-lighting ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Wailea. (Ask the torch lighter for some insider tips;-)

We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much we do.

With much Aloha,

Wendy & Bob

About Wendy Watson

Owners are Bob & Wendy Watson from

Langley, British Columbia. We are pictured on an evening at Five Palms Beach Grill - one of our favourite spots.

We have a long history with Maui, Hawaii’s “Valley Isle”. Wendy's parents lived in Kihei for twenty years; our now-grown children have fond memories of Christmases with Nannie and Poppa, learning to boogie board at the Kamaole beaches when they were little and, when they were older, learning to surf at Charlie Young beach, just up the street.

In 2005, after Mom and Dad moved back to British Columbia, Kamaole Beach Royale became our new family vacation home. In March, 2011, we were thrilled to be able to buy our beautiful condo here at KBR and to share it with our family, our friends and our guests: you!

“E Komo Mai”. Welcome to our home away from home!

Much Aloha,

Wendy

Wendy Watson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Wendy Watson chose Maui

Kamaole Beach Royale, located at Kamaole Beach #1 in South Kihei, Maui, is one of only 3 concrete-framed apartments in Kihei. As a result, our apartment has exceptional views and is also exceptionally quiet.

What makes this condo unique

My husband, Bob and I loved this apartment as soon as we walked in. It has a breathtaking view and is furnished in a tasteful yet comfortable style. Since buying the apartment in 2011, we have updated our already lovely 'home away from home' to ensure we have provided everything a guest might need on a vacation to the 'Valley Isle'.

We are pleased to offer our guests high-speed wireless internet connection and free long distance to U.S and Canada.

Paradise--without a doubt!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything and more that it was described to be! The kitchen is well equipped with all the tools you need to prepare meals in the kitchen or barbecue on the 7th floor--a great place to meet other tenants as well. The view is unbelievable--we were fortunate to be able to watch the whales along the coast, and the views of the beach and the sunsets are gorgeous. The location is perfect with access to reasonably priced restaurants right across the street. The beach is nearby as well and the condo provides all the beach chairs, towels, and equipment needed to enjoy the your time in the sun. Love falling asleep to the sound of the ocean--we will definitely return!!!

Great location, beautiful view, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

The condo is as easy as can be. Checkin and checkout were a breeze and Wendy was great with communicating when we had some questions before our stay. The place was clean and had everything we needed for a week in Maui. We loved having the washer/dryer so we could pack light, and enjoyed coffee on the lanai in the mornings and sunset from the lanai in the evening. The beach is very close, we were able to walk there with our three year old and carry our chairs (provided at the condo) and snacks no problem. The beach does get very windy around lunchtime so make sure you get there early to enjoy it. Thank you Wendy for a wonderful stay!

Excellent condo, view and location

  • 5 of 5

What a delight! The location was perfect, close to a favourite coffee and cinnamon roll shop, grocery store and the beach was fantastic. Many excellent restaurants are conveniently located within walking distance of this condo. The condo is beautifully and comfortably decorated and in particular, the kitchen had everything we could have wished for. Since we enjoy preparing many of our own meals, we pay particular attention to the kitchen and were not disappointed. Wendy and Bob have thought of everything including dining tips, guide books, music and art by local artisans. It was a joy call it home for a week and highly recommend it to others. Thank you Wendy and Bob for a sharing your Maui home with us.

Great View, Great Beach, Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, the comforts of this apartment and views from the lanai made for a wonderful stay. If you like to see spectacular sunsets and hear the surf at night, this is the place for you. The apartment is set back far enough from a main road and high enough (5th floor) to give enough of a sense of seclusion. But we also appreciated being close to "town" where you can walk for fabulous coffee and morning cinnamon rolls or a tasty meal at night. The owners' personal touches - like Wendy's suggestions for dining or numerous Hawaii-oriented guidebooks - made you feel very taken care of. We plan to go back someday!

One of the best vacation rental experiences we've had

  • 5 of 5

We've used VRBO/Homeaway and AirBnb for years, and I have to say this is one of the best places we've ever rented. The view is spectacular and visible from almost everywhere in the condo. The place is immaculate. The amenities can't be beat (A/C, washer/dryer, dishwasher, coffee maker & grinder, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, parking, etc. etc). We have never stayed in a better equipped place. As an added bonus to all you techie types (like me), the internet connection is EXCELLENT. The place even has a Chromecast in the livingroom, so we were able to stream our own Netflix and Hulu accounts to the TV from our phones.

Another bonus to this condo is the location. It is centrally located across the street from two beautiful beaches, and a short walk to others. Big Beach is about a 5 minute drive away. There are a ton of restaurants within walking distance, and many more with a few minutes drive. In fact, it is easy to get to about anywhere in Maui from Kihei.

Although we never met in person, Wendy was absolutely lovely to speak with and very organized. She is quick to respond and has detailed out almost all questions you may have in advance. I know her responsiveness and attention to detail were a big part in how smoothly and enjoyable our stay was. Mahalo, Wendy!

In short, I would highly recommend Wendy's place! We will definitely rent from her again if we are ever back in Maui.

Arguably one of the best values on Maui

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd stay here at this unit, and once again, I had an outstanding stay, in one of the best condo units I could ask for. It is ideally located across from Kamaole 1 beach (90 second walk), it has all of the amenities included (beach chairs, snorkel/fin sets, beach towels, beach coolers, boogie boards, etc.) and all of the necessities of being at home , including a well appointed kitchen, washer & dryer, good A/C, and very nice ceiling fans on the lanai, the living room, and in the bedroom. I travel a lot, and this is quite honestly one of the cleanest units I've encountered.

There are coffee/latte shops within a few minutes walk in the AM, and plenty of great food, drink and pub choices close by in the PM. And for the nights you just want to stay in and relax, some of the nicest Weber bbq's up on the rooftop that I've ever cooked on.

And if that sounds surreal, wait until you interact with the property owner. She covers every detail of your upcoming trip, nothing is left unaddressed, and if you have any special needs/requests (specific restaurant types, local shops/amenities, etc.) she is quick to respond with recommendations. An absolute pleasure to deal with.

I will use this property/unit on my next Maui vacation, no questions asked.
