About Lori Dunnell Wheeler
My first visit to Hawaii was in 1986. I knew I wanted to come back, and someday live there. As I raised my children, my thoughts were to raise them on Maui, knowing that the education about the world they would receive would be far more than just books. As life would have it, that was not the case. I kept coming back, every trip I tool was better than the last. I knew I would return...and someday have a home. Life continued to show up for me and I never gave up my dream. Although I am still living on the mainland, I finally bought this condo, and after 26 years, was that much closer to my dream. I live in California, so happy that I can see the ocean, knowing that my next trip to Maui, someday, will be one way.....
Lori Dunnell Wheeler purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Lori Dunnell Wheeler chose Kihei
I looked at properties on Maui for several years. I made one offer in 2006, and it was not accepted. I kept looking. Every time I was in Kihei, I would walk the length of south Kihei picking which complex I wanted to be in. I never realized Shores of Maui was a complex that was NOT fully owner occupied. It looked so unassuming, more like an apartment building than like the other condo complexes. After a week of looking in March of 2012, our last stop was Shores of Maui #202. I spent 30 minutes inside, 25 of them on the balcony. I knew. It took me until my plane landed back on the mainland to call and start the ball rolling to buy this unit. I never looked back and look forward to sharing my view with you!
What makes this Condo unique
This unit is lovely inside, however it's crown is the view. Whether it is raining, (less likely on the south side of the island) or the trades are blowing, (highly likely at some point of every given day) the view from this unit is spectacular. Any time of day or night, sun rise, sun set, moon rise, moon set. The high ceilings make the unit spacious, the sound of the waves, divine. We are constantly making changes and upgrades. It only gets better and better. Come enjoy a paradise away from home.

Amazing view, great location!
We had a fantastic vacation in #202! The proximity to the beaches, shopping, restaurants...such a great value. In spite of the buckets of rain we experienced on several days, we had better weather than locales further south and north/east. Often we were dry when we could see those other areas were getting soaked. Each morning we watched the surfers learning how to stay on their boards while having our morning coffee on the lanai. We saw whales on several days! And each evening we watched sunsets - from the pool, beach, and lanai - each a perfect vantage point to see the colorful glory. We have 2 teenagers who were never bored because there's so much to do. We took advantage of the recommendation to rent snorkels and a boogie board from then Snorkel Store. The people there were great! Helpful and friendly with suggestions for some great, lesser known beaches. We enjoyed dinners at Three's Bar and Grill, just short walk away and Cafe O'Lei, also close by. Grocery and ABC stores are close by, and funky, fun shopping is also an easy stroll. The condo is very large and comfortable. It took a day or two to get used to the road noise, but it actually just became part of the active environment. As others have reported, the condo is spotless, well stocked and perfect for a family of 4 like ours. Everything worked well and exactly as advertised. The complex is relatively small which we liked. It was very quiet and kept up well. The pool and hot tub are great with a view of the ocean and often empty. We loved taking late evening swims with the stars shining above the swaying palm trees. Heavenly! We definitely recommend this condo. Mahalo for the great memories!
A great location!
In terms of proximity to beaches, restaurants, shopping, etc., I don't think this place can be beat! It is really accessible.
The communication with the owner is stellar. We had what we thought was one minor issue with the door to the lanai (turns out we just needed to work harder to open it!), and the owner and her team were incredibly responsive. We appreciated that so much!
The one thing worth noting is related to A/C. There is one wall unit in the large main room. The two bedrooms do not have it, though they have many fans, which was nice. We opened up the windows in the evening, and that helped some, but because the unit is above a busy street, we didn't keep them open long as we are light sleepers. It may not affect other folks, but we would have appreciated knowing that.
All in all, this is a great spot for a vacation to the island of Maui!
We had a wonderful time! The condo has everything you need and more! Beautiful Lanai to watch the whales and sunset! Highly recommend! Easy to book and easy to get a hold of someone.
The perfect spot!
Fabulous condo - ideal location for us (so close to the beaches as well as great food, etc), the view was lovely, and my niece adored the pool. The unit is very well outfitted with everything you might need, including the kitchen. The perfect home base for a memorable trip that we'll treasure. And the Snorkel Shop hook up - their gear is the best I've rented in 5 trips to Maui! Thank you Lori & Karyn for sharing your awesome space with us! We can't wait to come back.
Great location , nice condo with everything you need
We love the location, the condo is roomy and comfortable easy walk to shopping and restaurants , carry your boards across the street for fun on the water. Neighbors were also very friendly
We (two families, four adults and four children between the ages of 8 and 4) had a wonderful stay at this wonderfully located property. Watching the sunset each night on the lanai was just lovely and the kids loved the pool and the beach across the road. Such an enjoyable stay on Maui that we will be back one day for sure!
WHALE WATCHING! Sit on the lanai and watch the whales swim and play from November-March. We watched whales breaching while eating breakfast at the kitchen table!
