Kihei House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Private Home With Incredible Pool, Spa And Garden (Sleeps 6)

Kihei Oasis is a legally permitted vacation rental home just opening it's doors for rentals in June 2013! Permit #STKM 20130014. The home is the only structure on a 1/2 acre of manicured tropical landscaped property. When you rent this property, you and your guests will be in your own private fenced hotel style Oasis. The home accommodates 6 guests.

There is on-site parking for four vehicles.

There is a monitored security system for guest use.

The master bedroom suite is located on the North side of the home with an attached bathroom and walk in closet. The master bathroom has a walk in glass shower. Bath towels are supplied for guest use. The bed is a California king size Tempur-pedic mattress. All bedding has 400 thread count or higher sheets and high end colorful cotton quilts and blankets. The furniture through out the bedroom and entire home is teak, sea-grass, and bamboo, giving the home the plantation island style setting. The french doors of the master suite, open to the back lanai, which is around 1000 sq ft. which opens to the lavish Oasis garden with over 80 palms, orchids, ferns, succulents, fruit trees, tropical plants, and an organic herb garden available for guest use.

The custom 40,000 gallon, 800 sq ft saline pool beckons you in with the 10 ft tiled attached saline spa to relax your muscles after a long day of exploring the island. The pool is heated to 82 degrees by an electric heat pump in cooler months, and can be requested warmer with an additional security deposit. There is a custom 14 ft. gazebo that sits between the pool and spa for guests to gather that comfortably seats five. A rinse off shower is next to the gazebo for rinsing before and after pool use. The gazebo is a wonderful place to receive a massage, and has two waterfalls that spill off the roof into the pool. Folks say the falls sound like a strong waterfall flowing in Hana. The yard has more that 30 LED landscape lights to bring stunning night time ambiance to the Oasis. The pool and spa are lite by LED lighting that can change colors.

A fire pit is located off the back end of the pool for cooler Kihei winter evenings, temperatures under 70 degrees. There are two hammocks for relaxing in the yard, one in the back corner, under the shaded thatched umbrella, and one on the lanai off the master bedroom.

Located in the lawn is another seating area that is in a shaded area, giving a spectacular view of the spa waterfall, and pool deck area that seats five comfortably. Four chaise chairs are available for sun basking and the chairs can easily be moved around the yard to enjoy.

The kitchen appliances include a refrigerator with filtered water, (a second refrigerator in the garage, so stock up at Costco), dishwasher, microwave, Vita-mixer, 12 cup coffee maker, coffee grinder, 4 slice toaster, electric tea kettle, electric 4 burner stove and oven, full size rice cooker, mixer, and knife sharpener. The kitchen is stocked beautifully with utensils, knives, glassware, plastic ware, bowls, serving platters, Pyrex, bake ware, and Circulon pots and pans. The pantry is stocked with coffee, white sugar, brown sugar, flour, spices, green tea, Lipton tea, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and few other fun items. The kitchen is an informal setting, and is open to the living area. There is a dining table that seats four, and the large island has seating for four also.

The living area also has french doors which open up to the 1000 sq ft lanai and Oasis backyard. In the living area there is a tiki sitting area with a 60 gallon tropical freshwater aquarium to sit and relax around.

The 46' LED TV is enclosed in a teak cabinet, which has a Samsung blu-ray/DVD player that can stream Netflix, and is run through a Yamaha receiver with both indoor and outdoor speakers for the back lanai. You can stream your music from your iPod, iPad or any MP3 player through the system. There is free wireless internet.

Original artwork is hung through the entire home. Central air conditioning for keeping cool. Ceiling fans are in each bedroom and in the living area. Games and puzzles are available for guests, along with a number of Hawaii themed books to read. There is a wall safe available for guest use.

The home is child proofed for the safety of small ones with items such as, plug protectors, cabinet restraints, pantry lock, and wooden gates are available for guest use for doorways. We have a high chair, 2 portable pack and plays, a Joovey room large play pen, bed rails, and bouncer for guest use also.

There is a full size washer and dryer inside the home, and we supply unscented laundry soap, Oxy clean, and dryer sheets for your use.

In the garage there are extra tables and chairs available for guest use. Beach chairs, pool toys, floats, and coolers are also stored there and available for guest use.

The second bathroom is a full bathroom with a bath tub. Located on the South side of the house with the other two bedrooms, the bathroom has a door that opens to the back lanai which makes it great for folks to easily use without walking through the house.

The guest room located at the front of the home on the South side, has two brand new queen size beds.

The last bedroom on the South side is a smaller bedroom, with a brand new queen size bed, and also has french doors that open to the back Lanai and yard.

The back lanai is a 1000 sq ft, and has seating for 6 in comfortable relaxing chairs and rockers. There is a full size stainless steel radiated heat gas grill for BBQ's. There is a large teak cooler on the deck for ease of storing cold drinks. A peek-a-boo ocean view can be seen from the lanai.

The lanai can be completely child-proofed off to keep small ones on the deck and away from the pool area for easy adult supervision. Please request us to childproof the lanai before your arrival.

Kihei Oasis is a private, peaceful, relaxing atmosphere that will shed your cares away. Come for a romantic retreat, family gathering, or with a group of friends and discover the Oasis!

About Amy Bond

Welcome! My name is Amy Bond, and I'm the owner/manager of Kihei Oasis. I live in Kihei, just a few miles from the property I named Kihei Oasis. I grew up in Park Ridge, IL, and lived in Chicago until 2001. I took a trip to Maui after learning how to scuba dive. While diving here, I decided Maui would be my new home. I've been here 14 years now, and I still feel as though I just moved here yesterday!

Amy Bond purchased this house in 2007

Why Amy Bond chose Maui

The property was bought in 2007, and in 2008, the custom designed pool, spa, gazebo, and palm trees were added to the property. All the landscape was designed by me, and over time, I've added more gardens as the tree canopy shades new areas of the property.

I recently have moved from the property to convert it to one of Maui's first legally permitted vacation homes, as I feel the property is one meant to be shared with others. The home feels like a 'home' not a vacation rental. Folks who have come to visit are always in awe of the beauty of the home, the gardens, the pool and spa, and the immediate feeling of completely being away in a sanctuary, hence, why I named it 'Kihei Oasis'!

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this home immediately. At the time there was no pool, spa, gazebo, or gardens. I looked at it as an opportunity to design the yard I've always longed for. My idea of the perfect home in Hawaii is a smaller home on a large lot. A home that brings the outside in and the inside out.

My favorite areas are the gazebo for relaxing and spending time with my family and friends in the pool and spa. My favorite space inside the house is sitting in front of the fish tank reading a good book. Taking a nap in the master bedroom with the french doors open, listening to the trades blow, is also another favorite!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amy, Our stay at your home was truly amazing! After a long day traveling all over Maui, we often looked forward to returning home to take a dip in the pool & hot tub. Our kids have decided to stay in Maui at your house forever! You really provided an excellent atmosphere for rest and relaxation we were seeking. Many Thanks & we'll see you again, I'm sure!

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding! Kihei Oasis is an incredibly beautiful property and the pool is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed for 2 weeks in July, didn’t want to leave and cannot wait to go back there. I can’t say enough good things about the owner, Amy. She goes above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be. We loved her! I could go on and on about this amazing place but the previous guest reviews have covered pretty much everything. In a nutshell, the place is beautiful, we had a fabulous time and will definitely be back!

Beyond words, but I'll still try and use some.

  • 5 of 5

Epic! There's our first word. The outdoor area is one of the finest private tropical retreats we've ever encountered in Hawaii. Here's another word: hospitable That describes Amy. Talk about an owner that goes 110% in every way. Our next word is: stocked the cupboards had everything imaginable so that we only needed to buy perishables and meats, and not spices, sugars, soaps, etc. Next word: quiet Sit in the tranquil pool or enjoy a cup of coffee in the many seated areas you can experience. And our final word: return. That's something we would love to do as soon as possible. Nice job Amy, we were blown away!

A wonderful house and a lovely host

  • 5 of 5

We had carried out some pretty extensive research on available houses in Maui before we approached Aimi (the owner). She was a pure delight to deal with and was able to address all our questions quickly. The house is ideally located to get around the island and easy to find. We were a family of two adults and two kids and the property was perfect for us but it could easily work for 6 or even 8 people as there are 3 bedrooms and four double beds.

The house itself has everything we would ever need in it for a vacation. We have rented many houses over the years but never been in one that was so well stocked with everything from cooking oil to a kettle (we are English!) and all sorts of equipment for the beach or pool. The outside area is the highlight of the house. The pool and hot tub were wonderful as was the landscaping and availability of loungers.

We would happily stay here again if or when we are back on the island.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The Oasis is even more beautiful in person. Amy has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The home was very welcoming and the backyard is like a private resort. We appreciated all the extra items she has available to use to make our stay more enjoyable.

The Secluded & Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

"Oasis" - a pleasant or peaceful area in the midst of a difficult, troubled, or hectic place. I found this definition online and it perfectly fits our review of this property. We just returned from a week stay and it's an amazing place in midst of Kihei. I'm not saying Kihei is a troubled/hectic place. It's quite beautiful. The property made you feel as if you were on your own little island with no one else around. If I had to quote my kids - "It's like we have our own secluded resort"....and we did. The house and property are amazing. The pool, hotub, and amenities are top-notch. They're so amazing that we spent two days not even leaving the property! Amy and Mike have done an amazing job keeping the house updated and the grounds perfect. It's furnished with brand new appliances and equipment. Including a kick-ass stereo system for indoor/outdoor use and a remote that controls the outside lights, pool, and spa. As for the owner, Amy is extremely accommodating and has thought of everything to make it the perfect stay. You'll need to shop but Amy has all the small stuff (utensils, condiments, etc) covered. I strongly suggest you check-in first before heading to the grocery store. She provided us a well-needed orientation of the place and really good eating recommendations. I'm still salivating over the Monkeypod Mai Tai's! You also have to try Tamara's poke....you'll be shocked at the location. In summary, we highly recommend the Kihei Oasis and we're sad that we had to leave. Thank you Amy for everything and wish you the best. I hope to be back soon.

Fantastic Relaxing Vacation in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Had a chance to stay at Kihei Oasis in June 2016 and had a fantastic experience. Amy's home is truly well kept, well stocked and she does a wonderful job making sure you have everything you need for your stay. I couldn't ask for more if I tried, what a great vacation home - everything exactly as described/pictured (even better). While the home inside is beautiful and well maintained, the back yard is truly an amazing sight. The pool, spa, yard, deck ... are an excellent place to relax and enjoy the tropical sun and breeze. It's well worth the stay for those features alone! I highly recommend Kihei Oasis for your Maui stay, you will not be disappointed with the home or Amy. If/When I make it back to Maui, no where else I will be staying. Beautiful beaches/water up north by Kapalua.

Kihei Oasis is conveniently located on the North side of Kihei town. If you're planning on doing lots of island sight seeing, such as visiting Hana, exploring upcountry areas such as Makawao, Kula, or Haleakala National Park, or driving to the West side of the island to Lahaina and beyond, Kihei Oasis is only a couple of blocks from the Piialani Hwy (31), but offers you and your guests your own private resort style vacation home, 3 bedroom/2 bath, on 1/2 acre property with a lavish custom saline pool and 10 ft tiled spa to spoil yourselves after you return from sight seeing. North Kihei is one of the drier areas with lots of sun and trade winds to cool the afternoons. Within a mile is Sugar beach, a five mile long beach suited for long walks or beach combing. It can be walked to, but most will want to drive, or explore beaches further South for swimming. Nearby activities such as batting cages, shopping, Kihei Canoe Club, Hawaiian Islands humpback Whale National Marine sanctuary, Isana Restaurant, and Monsoon India Restaurant are within a 1/2 mile to 1 mile away from the property.
