Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-5)

Relax to the sound of the surf. Walk directly across the street to the best swimming beach on Maui. Have a BBQ on the rooftop garden or whale watch from the lanai. And of course the view, which will grab you the moment you open the door. This suite is on the 5th floor and is perfectly located so that you can see the sun and moon set over the Pacific Ocean every day of the year. You see the road to Lahaina past McGregor Point in the North and all the way past Little Beach in Makena to the South. You can see the islands of Kahoolawe, Molokai, and on clear days, Molokai. From the lanai you can see if the surf is up at the Cove. Located just a few blocks to the North, it’s Mau’s best place for a surf lesson. You can swim with the dolphins and snorkel with the green sea turtles nearby. “Everything under the sun” kind of outdoor activities as well as great restaurants and world class golf. Fine dining and upscale shopping can be found in Wailea, located a short distance to the South. Or, more moderately priced restaurants and shops, found in Kihei. Affectionately called, “the honeymoon suite,” with its beautifully appointed with Italian marble, granite and fine art it is definitely NOT your grandmother's condo! Very modern and fully furnished for all your vacation needs. Just bring your swimming suit. This property boasts the best ocean views in South Maui and is and is by far the best buy in its class. Once you arrive, you won't want to leave. You will want to come back again and again.

About Mary Malone

I knew instantly the moment I landed on Maui for the first time in 1978 that Maui would be my home. After law school, I became a resident of Maui and opened my law office in 1995. I started renting this beautiful suite in 2006 when I took a sabbatical year from my law practice and made a journey around the world to 29 countries. I enjoy hosting international travelers. I'm delighted to share this extraordinary suite with you and hope to make your stay here in magical Maui the best vacation of your lifetime.

Mary Malone purchased this condo in 2000

Why Mary Malone chose Maui

This property stands above others in the building as well as in the neighborhood as a truly 5 star experience, not only in the quality of upgrades and decor but also with the 5 star concierge services. I am happy to make any special arrangements for you at no extra charge. I can direct you to the best of Maui and assist with any special occasion to make it absolutely perfect.

What makes this condo unique

I searched from Maalaea to Wailea before I purchased this property. It was the unsurpassed direct 180 degree ocean view that sold me on this property the moment I opened the door. No other property on the mauka side of South Kihei Road has a better view. The County of Maui recently upgraded the property to ocean front in order to differentiate it from other properties with “peek-a-boo” views. This property is also superior to every other property on the mauka side to South Kihei Road because you hear the gentle sound of surf rather than road noise. The proximity to every activity you might want from renting a stand up paddle board on your way to the beach or the best golf experience on the planet makes this suite the perfect choice for your vacation, honeymoon, anniversary or family reunion. Come see, I'm sure you will agree

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing Value, Well Appointed and Awesome View!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Maui four times now (twice at the Kamaole Beach Royale) and this was by far the best condo we have stayed in so far. This is the first time that the condo we stayed in was such a cut above that I felt compelled to leave a review. I would call the Kamaole Beach Royale resort a great value already with its low prices, near beach location and awesome views. In general, the higher the floor, the better the view, with very good unobstructed views starting at about floor 4. Thus this unit which is on the 5th floor, and on the forward projecting portion of the building, has a truly spectacular 180 degree view of the ocean, the beach, and amazing sunsets. But the view is not all, as this particular unit was well furnished and had a very comfortable king sized bed. There was even a spotting scope and a bed on the lanai! The bed on the lanai was a very unique and wonderful place to relax and watch the world go by Maui style. The condo also had everything you needed to cook your own meals, pots, pans and dishes of course, but also little things that might go missing in other places, like plastic wrap, cooking oil, and newer appliances. Mary the owner was a pleasure to deal with, and is a good communicator via email or phone. She also kindly organized an early check in for us as our flight arrived about 3 hours before the official check in time. We loved the pool here too. It was always clean and didn't smell of too much chlorine the way some pools can and the water was very warm. I noticed a substantial solar pool heater at the back of the resort and I'm sure this helped keep the pool water comfy warm. We enjoyed the pool so much that we swam in it almost everyday. We had some friends who were staying at the Ritz in Kapalua and we visited them for the day and hung out at the Ritz pool. The room at the Ritz really amounted to a basic hotel room (no kitchen or separate bedroom) with a partial ocean view. The pool at the Ritz was nice, if a bit shallow, and we had fun swimming in it and the Ritz staff spritzed us once and gave us a frozen grape. But when we left, our friends returned to their basic hotel room and probably went out to an overpriced restaurant in Kapalua, while we went back and cooked ourselves a meal in our condo and enjoyed a Maui sunset from our lanai. Honestly for us, this room at the KBR was more fun and more valuable to us than a room at the Ritz. I highly recommend this unit at the KBR.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i stayed here for our honeymoon and valentines day. We loved how close it was to the beach, THE VIEW, and how close you were to the grocery store and great places to eat and shop. The bed was so comfortable i have never fallen asleep so quickly! i would highly recommend this place to anyone. Great experience for our honeymoon.

Beautiful days

  • 4 of 5

The sunsets are beyond compare. The building is friendly, mostly older people, but very welcoming. Vince at the front desk was lovely. Located right across from the beach, but there was no issue with street noise at all. ABC store very closeby. Great location to end our Maui honeymoon after a resort and a stay in Hana.

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

The Maui experience starts every morning with this incredibly gorgeous view when you leave the bedroom. It is exactly like shown in the pictures.

The apartment itself is very conveniently located just across the road from the beach. Shops and places to eat or take out are close-by.

You can watch the sunset sprawled on the daybed on the lanai. The apartment is furnished with everything from kitchen spices to cleaning utensils to beach umbrellas. It is your choice whether to be self-sufficient and do your cooking yourself or give the excellent restaurants on the island a try.

A wonderful place to stay and enjoy.

Absolute best location in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

It was my first time using VRBO but because were attending a wedding near Keihi and there weren't many hotel options nearby, we tried this service. The condo owner was very easy to work with. We called her with a quick question while we were there and she was happy to take my call and help me out.

The condo is right across the street from Kamaloe Beach 1 which is by far one of the best beaches in all of Maui. It takes just a minute to walk there and there is a crosswalk right there so you don't need to dodge traffic like you do on other parts of S. Kiehi Rd. The color scheme of the condo fits right in with Hawaii and is well laid out. The bedroom has a king size bed that is 10x more comfortable than my bed at home. The condo was clean and the kitchen was older but well taken care of.

Everything you need for hanging out at the beach is available in the condo. There are a couple of chairs, coolers and several quality beach towels.

If you are thinking of staying at Kihei Alli Kai which is just inland from this condo, choose this one instead. You don't have to walk up a hill and unlike most of the condos at the Alli Kai, you have an amazing water view.

I would recommend this place to anyone who likes to be within walking distance to everything, needs to actually see the water from their condo (that was important to us) and a very comfortable bed.
