Kihei 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 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!!!

Wonderful first trip to Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing first trip to Maui. Wendy had wonderful information to share including great restaurants to go to and fun places to check out. Wendy had a nice surprise waiting for us some

Great coffee and chocolates. She had coolers

And boogie boards and snorkeling gear. Wendy's place was perfect for our honeymoon. The view from the lanai is amazing. We can't wait to come back

The place is conveniently located. and the view is amazingly beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The view is amazingly beautiful as advertised. The place is conveniently located. And Wendy, the owner, is very resourceful with informations, directions and all the stuff that you will need to enjoy the beach.

I was worried that I have to cross the Highway to get to the beach, but rest assure that the Highway is NOT the Highway where we are acustome to. This Highway speed is 40 or 45 speed MPH and you do have the button to push for the cars to yield for pedestrians.

The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of towels for the whole family even though just the two of us.

Wendy even have the welcome basket upon arrival. It's such a nice gesture.

The landscaping is beautiful and the flowers smell so wonderful. We were there for ELEVEN DAYS. MY husband and I feel at home and could live there for awhile longer. I would love to return soon and love to stay in a same place.

Owner's Response: Aloha, LeAnn, Thank you so much for your kind review. I generally do not respond to reviews on my VRBO site as I prefer to thank guests individually by email. However, I would like to provide a clarification here for the benefit of future guests: South Kihei Road is not a highway; it is a two-lane street next to the ocean with a 20-30 mph speed limit, depending on location. As you correctly noted, there is a pedestrian-controlled crosswalk right across from our condo. Bob and I look forward to your next visit as our guests on Maui. Aloha nui loa, Wendy

Spectacular ocean view

  • 5 of 5

The view is unobstructed and panoramic. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you needed both in the way of dishes as well as spices. We spent a lot of time on the lanai which is very private, enjoying the 180 degree view of the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves. The condo is clean, comfortable and centrally located near to a variety of shops, equipment rentals, and several good restaurants. Several beaches are nearby and the condo provides towels and all the equipment to enjoy the water and the sand.

We would recommend the free Hula show at the Wailea Shops on Tuesdays and Thursdays, especially if you have children.

We appreciated the attention to detail that Wendy and Bob provided--it helped make our stay memorable.

The basket of goodies to welcome us was a touch of class. We will be back

Views were wonderful and condo was very nice. Enjoyed working with Wendy.

  • 5 of 5

The beaches and water were great. The weather was a hot but we did visit during the hottest time of the year. The location of the condo was very neutral and we could easily travel to any location on the Island. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a nice and centrally located condo. Thank you Wendy for the delightful guest basket and for taking such good care of all of our needs.
