Our 1-bed/1-bath condo on the top floor (3rd), offers the best and most amazing views from Hale Kai O'Kihei condo and is perfect for two! (although can sleep 4). From the private lanai, sip your morning coffee or your evening cocktail, while being lulled by the soothing sounds of the ocean, enjoying tropical breezes, and viewing whales (in-season) or magical sunsets. Right out your door are the beautiful beachfront resort grounds, along with instant access to miles of sandy uncrowded beach (great for morning or evening strolls), swaying palm trees, and the beautiful Pacific. This unit is perfect for a couple, but can accommodate a maximum of 4 guests.

The air-conditioned bedroom is on the mauka side (the side opposite the beach) of the condo with a comfortably firm Cal-King bed, high thread count sheets, a Tommy Bahama quilt, ample closet and dresser storage, and an overhead fan. The living room also offers a separate AC, a TV, and an overhead fan. The kitchen features a new dishwasher and fridge, and is fully equipped for our guests to easily prepare delicious meals. The condo decor is "tasteful beachy", and features original art from both Maui and mainland artists. Depending on surf and weather conditions, you can enjoy stand-up-paddling in front of the condo complex, or windsurfing and kiteboarding nearby. HKOK's amenities include a pool, shuffleboard, lawn furniture, and gas grill barbecues. We provide two Tommy Bahama beach chairs for our guests (these are for our condo), beach towels, a beach bag, a cooler, and some beach games. Laundry facilities are conveniently located on the property.

The condo includes free wired and wireless high-speed (15meg) internet service. (This is NOT 'hotel service' internet with separate login screen every time you go online.) Our unit also features keyless entry, so no more worrying about keys!

Hale Kai O'Kihei offers the privacy and quiet of a residential street, but is within easy walking distance of a grocery store (Times Market), pharmacy (Long's Drugs), Azeka Shopping Centers, several great restaurants, a fitness center, Kihei Aquatic Center (lap swimming & water aerobics), scuba diving shop, scooter rentals, bank, and post office. Kihei Rent-A-Car is nearby and they offer shuttle service to and from the airport. Public transit is one block from the complex, and the condo is only a 10 minute drive to Wailea and a 20 minute drive to Kahului International Airport (OGG).

Lovely small condo right on the water in Kihei, close to stores.

  • 5 of 5

Great location with great views and close to restaurants. Only downside is that it’s on the 3rd floor without an elevator. But it was good exercise!

The owners were fabulous with great recommendations. Thank you Anita!

Comfortable condo with view of the sunset!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the condo for our honeymoon. It was everything we hoped for and more! It was clean and had everything we needed from the moment we walked in. Towels, bedding, fully appointed kitchen, masks and snorkels, beach chairs, the works! The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning works great, although we did not need in much. We didn't watch any TV, too busy! But we did enjoy listening to our music on the IPAD dock! We used the fridge, microwave, dishwasher, stove and coffee pot - all worked great. The owner, Anita, sent full instructions for details about the condo, and gave us a contact on the island any case any problems came up (none did). She was super efficient about answering any questions we had before our trip, and all our emails were promptly responded to.

The view from the living room through the storm door, and from the lanai is just beautiful. We enjoyed the sunset from the lanai two of our nights. The grassy area under the palm trees is perfect for lazy sunning or playing toss. The beach is just a few steps away and we walked on it every day. There are sea turtles in the water right in front of the condo, and one night we walked a ways down the beach after sunset and a mama turtle had come ashore to lay her eggs. So cool!

We really appreciated the detailed notes Anita provided on activities, shopping, and places to eat. We had two amazing snorkeling experiences; one close to the condo in Wailea at Ulua Beach, and one further south at Ahihi-Kinau Reserve. We enjoyed trying to paddle board right in Kihea, but were not too skilled at it! We took a whole day to experience the Road to Hana and enjoyed a 4 mile hike at Haleakala National Park through a bamboo forest to the base of the 400 foot Waimoku Falls!

We had many memorable meals, but standouts were the fish tacos at Coconuts, fancy dinner at Nick's Fish House, and sushi at Sansei. We also enjoyed checking out the Maui Brewery, which compared favorably to the many small breweries we frequent in Cincinnati, Ohio.

After we checked out on our last day, we spent the afternoon in upcountry Maui, visiting Makawao because of its relative proximity to the airport since our flight didn't depart until the evening. It worked out great because we had been so busy having fun on Maui we hadn't bought any gifts for our loved ones back home. Makawao has great shops and local art and crafted items and we were happy with our finds!

What a trip!

Relaxed and peaceful with the best location

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo in Kihei. Anita was a pleasure to work with when making our arrangements. The condo had everything we needed and more. We were able to walk to the grocery store, and several good restaurants, which is a huge plus for me. The area was nice and quiet, with a relaxed atmosphere compared to the Kaanapali area. The ocean view from the lanai, and great beach a few yards away, were, however, the ultimate in what I look for in a Hawaiian vacation. I hope to return again someday!

Beautiful condo! It was perfect for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights, and we didn't want to leave! The location is excellent, secluded from the big resorts so the beach was never crowded and there were always plenty of layout chairs available! We also had the pool to ourselves almost every time we got in. The view from the lanai is really as beautiful and close to the ocean as it looks in the pictures! Sunsets are so beautiful. Inside the condo, all was super clean, the furniture is all really nice and everything works great. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils. Our favorite meal in Maui was one that we made ourselves at the condo and ate on the lanai while watching the sunset. The bed is sooo comfortable! I checked the brand of the sheets because I want to buy some to have at home. :D There seemed to be people of all ages staying in the condos nearby- families, younger and older couples, groups of friends. Keep in mind that this is a place for vacationers that want to relax. Quiet time hours are respected, and I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a party place. For us it was great that it was quiet and we could hear the waves hit the shore. We took advantage of the snorkel gear in the condo and drove to a nearby beach and saw beautiful fish and sea turtles! The beach right outside the condo wasn't the clearest for snorkeling, but we did see sea turtles pop their heads out of the water from the lanai. There are plenty of things to do on Maui, I don't think you could ever get bored. The condo owners, Jim and Anita, are great hosts! Communication was great and everything went smoothly. The building managers at the condo were also really nice and friendly without being invasive. They even left a nice card on our door on our last day there congratulating us on our marriage, which I assume they heard about from Anita because we hadn't told them. :) All in all, I can't say enough good things about this condo! I can't wait to be back someday!

Great place to call home while on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Anita & Jim are terrific. So organized and thoughtful. Just down the stairs and over the dune to the beach. (I'd advise on surf shoes because of the rocks.) They have snorkel gear for you if you need it. First day, a couple of sea turtles joined our swim. Stayed the first week of August. If you are a morning person, be warned that the bedroom faces east and morning sun comes right through the door window at about 6am. Condo isn't huge, but there was ample room and closet space even with our son on the sleeper sofa. Location is great. Lots of beaches to choose from in the area (Maluaka was my fav). Only about 30 min to Paia and east side or Lahaina and West Maui. Complex is super quiet...not a lot of younger children. AC was a godsend as it was quite hot a few days, even in the 80s overnight a couple of times. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a little over week at this condo. It is a great little place equipped with everything you might need. You can see the ocean out of the living room or watch the sunset from the balcony. There is a large supermarket just around the corner and several great restaurants walking distance. Anita was a pleasure to to deal with. What we liked the best was the empty beach. We don't snorkel much and we didn't care that the water was murky with the fine sand. It was perfect for swimming. You could walk sooo far in the ocean in the morning and swim in the waves in the afternoon. We visited different beaches and they were gold and water clear, but they were so crowded. Our beach was like a personal paradise. We would book again if ever visiting Maui again.
