Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2, Beautiful Decor, Newly Remodeled

Kihei Bay Surf complex is conveniently located for easy access to the best Maui has to offer. It is specifically located across the street from Kalepolepo Beach Park and the Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary. This 450 square foot first floor air-conditioned unit at Kihei Bay Surf is newly painted, has new flooring, brand new furniture and linens, and many more updates throughout. The decor has a boutique/Bohemian flare and is incredibly tasteful and comfortable. Save money by cooking meals at the condo. There is a refrigerator, stove, microwave, plenty of cupboard space as well as dishes, pots and pans, bake ware, and utensils. The complex includes a shared coin-operated laundry room, tennis court, pool, hot tub, and BBQ area. Everything in Maui is within a reasonable distance, and many of the best beaches in Maui are less than a 15 minute drive. The airport is 20 minutes away, plenty of restaurants, bars, and shopping are less than a 5 minute drive away. This is truly a great way to enjoy Maui at an affordable price, have the convenience of a kitchen and home amenities, and still enjoy a romantic and stylish place to stay.

About Jessica Carpenter

Hello! My name is Jessica, and I grew up and still live in the small Eastern Washington town of Chewelah. There are about 2000 people in Chewelah, and I like to think our town is one of the world's best kept secrets. I love the four seasons; I love swimming, boating, hiking and camping in the summer, and skiing, sledding, and snow shoeing in the winter. I went to pharmacy school at Washington State University and graduated in 2010. My husband, Mike, was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma in April 2011. I left my job as a full-time pharmacist to take care of him and he passed away less than 6 months later in September 2011 at the age of 27. After he passed away, I took more time off work and traveled around Hawaii, Australia, New York, St. Lucia in the Caribbean, the East Coast, Tanzania, and Amsterdam. Most of my time traveling was spent alone. Maui held a special place in my heart, and I made it a goal to own a condo there that I could use as a second home as well as an investment. This goal was realized when I purchased this condo in August 2012, at 28 years old.

Why Jessica Carpenter chose Maui

On my second trip to Maui, I looked at a number of condos, but honestly, a studio was the only thing I could afford. This unit was within my price range and showed potential. With little hesitation, I purchased it. I didn't come back to Maui to see it again for 5 months, at which point I panicked because it was in worse shape than I remembered. I was only scheduled to be in Maui for two weeks, and I had my work cut out for me. With no experience in remodeling myself, I was blessed with the help of so many friends and family living in Maui who were willing to donate their time and experience to my project. I met a lot of people, learned a lot, and had fun in the process, but it was a lot of work and stress. The two week deadline proved to be insurmountable, so I returned to Maui about a month later to finish furnishing and decorating the condo. I feel very happy with the outcome, and am thrilled to have accomplished such a goal.

What makes this condo unique

What makes this property unique, is I had a vision and it turned out exactly as I imagined. There's something about Hawaii that makes me feel like I need less in life. A space that is comfortable, somewhere to sleep, eat and shower, and somewhere to store stuff. That's all I really need. For me, the space is perfect for all that is needed in Maui. I designed the interior of the condo to be charming and inspire a sense of adventure. I hope you feel inspired by the space, but mostly by the way of life in Maui.

Awesome Place in Maui

Loved the condo for our Maui vacation. Accessible to everywhere we wanted to go, comfortable and clean. Beach park across the street is a major plus!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Jessica's place in January 2016 for one week. Jessica was very fast to answer any questions we had. We were able to check in early. Everything is like the picture, clean and great location. There was enough ustensiles and dishes. The only negative point would be that the condo is very dark, there is no sun coming into the condo at all. Thank you for our wonderful stay. Maui will be a good souvenir for us.

Great location, easy access to all areas on the island, lovely, well-equipped studio

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable in Jessica's apartment; she has it well furnished for sleeping well, and we were able to make our own meals there. She responded quickly to our communications and to any suggestions that we made. All in all, we would recommend this rental for a couple of any age.

A perfect pace to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you - your Maui home was all I hoped for and more! It was as charming and cared for as it had appeared in the pictures; the bed was very comfortable and the studio had everything we could possibly need during our stay (having laundry facilities and a pool to lounge by until laundry was done was a huge plus!). The beach across the street was perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee and a quick swim before we headed off to explore the beautiful island. Centrally located, Luaus, shopping, snorkeling, whale watching and more were just a short drive away. Sunrise at the volcano and biking down to sea level is something not to be missed!

Jessica, thank you again for sharing your home away from home, and thank you for your quick responses and gracious flexibility with our travel schedule. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to continue our adventures!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Close to the beach and centrally located in Maui, it was perfect for us. My husband and I used this condo as our home base for exploring all of the island, and found the location to be perfect for it. Great beaches nearby, lots of restaurants and nightlife, and friendly neighbors were a bonus. The bed is super comfy and the shower head is great, the two most important things for us. Thanks, Jessica. We'll be back for sure!
