*Views. The ocean view is enchanting. You're coming to Hawaii, why not rent a place with a million dollar view?
*Great value, affordable price. Enough said!
I grew up on the west coast of Southern and Northern California, I LOVE the ocean and sailing. You may notice one of the properties of mine is in Maui. Ever since I visited Maui as a kid, I have been going back to vacation as often as I can. As our family traveled, I found Hawaii to be the perfect place. I couldn’t get enough of the ocean. I was just amazed as a kid the first time I went snorkeling – I thought, ‘Cool, it’s like swimming in a giant fish tank!’ There was no question, someday I would live and vacation in my own ‘Hawaii beach house.’
I hope you’ll enjoy all that our properties have to offer. I sure do. I think you’ll want to keep coming back too!
Court Roberts purchased this condo in 2013
We looked at a lot of complexes, but none had that 'tropical island' feel that Kauhale Makai does. The grounds are beautiful and the horizon is nothing but ocean and open space. Even though 'town' is very close, when you're here you don't feel like you're in the middle of it.
Also, this unit has been a rental for many years. It is HUGELY popular with travelers. We feel very fortunate to have a vacation rental with so many repeat customers. Even so, we keep trying to make it better!
Views. The views from this unit are some of the best in the building! Whale watching anyone?
Quiet building with everything you need for a fantastic vacation.
The unit itself was nice. It was very clean and well-stocked from the kitchen to the beach supplies. It was easy to find and the condominium staff was friendly and helpful. The unit is second from the street, and it's a pretty busy street. We found sleeping with the windows open to be too noisy (though to be fair, we were there over New Year's Eve and fireworks are legal in HI).
The grounds are nice and well-maintained. Fellow guests and those who live full-time in the condos were polite though not particularly friendly.
The beach the condos is on is not the best beach in the world, but the water was safe for swimming for two younger kids. There were a fair amount of rocks below the water - we all kicked some while swimming.
A thought we did have was while the unit worked fine for our family of 4, I don't think it would be an ideal sleeping arrangement for 2 couples or even for families with teenagers. The bathroom is in the master suite, so privacy doesn't really exist.
My boyfriend and I had a great stay this December, and by the end of the week it really felt like our home away from home! The listing is accurate, and the condo had everything we needed, including boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, etc. We especially appreciated that there was a coffee maker, hairdryer, and clothing iron. The property was very clean and has been kept up nicely. The air-conditioning works SO well that we actually turned it down or off most of the trip and enjoyed the breeze from the balcony! We also enjoyed the grilling area next to the pool/hot tub/shuffle board court. Court was friendly and easy to communicate with via email, and it was a super easy process to request and have her grant us a late check-out. The location was great for us, and we found that Kihei was a central place to get to Lahaina, Wailea, and Paia, which makes this condo perfect for exploring all of Maui. There's also a Safeway down the road and an amazing fresh fish shop called Eskimo Candy, if you want to cook at home! We took a short Uber ride to the "Burmuda Triangle" to get a drink in Kihei as well. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay, Court. If we're ever back in Maui we'd love to stay at your condo again! Happy New Year!
The condo was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. It is a large one bedroom with a separate futon bed that our son used. We enjoyed being so close to the Pilani hwy which made traveling around the island a joy. I would highly recommend this Condo if you are looking to stay in Kihei.
Husband and I Loved Staying Here!!
I liked the quiet location, no street to cross to get to the beach which was great for walking, trekking, general exercise and catching beautiful sunsets . We saw locals fishing with poles right on the sand.
Kihei is warm & dry , not as touristy as other places on Maui.
Kauhale Makai is an older building but it has a certain 70's or 80's charm to it, and is well kept . Our unit was very well maintained with good vibes and the grounds at were Peaceful, clean, quiet & low key .
This is a perfect unit if you want to go to Maui and not be surrounded by too many people , cook your own meals and just simply relax.
This unit is on the 5th floor, with a long lanai facing the ocean that stretches from living room to bedroom , I loved the winds coming in all day and night! The angle of lanai was perfect for catching both the sunrise and sunset , we had the sun on our back in the morning while having coffee and enjoyed beautiful views of the sunset in the evening. The parking lot is below but I was so happy to see the ocean that it did not distract!
The kitchen was stocked with everything you need, we cooked all our meals on the grills in the evening, (also well maintained)
I used the blender for healthy smoothies every morning, fridge was great and spacious! Kitchen was easy to keep clean and we had zero bug issues. (tip we put no food scraps or food wrappers in trash, we used disposal or froze then took downstairs to trash.)
The cabinet near the door was stocked with all items you would need for the beach, chairs coolers etc.
I had to do some work on the trip , and it was nice that there was a comfortable spot at the bar for me to set up office , complimentary notepad sharpie etc etc.
The drying rack was a nice touch to sundry and air out clothes from our suitcase in the sunlit living room!
I swam almost every night in the pool which was really nice.
We will be back!
I Highly recommend unit 523, its hard to find a room this good for the price on Maui . The owner Court was very nice on phone and very helpful , He made sure our first VRBO experience and trip to Maui was a good one !

The condo was perfect for us with a great view of the ocean. I loved the fact that there was a pull out couch and a futon so both teenage kids could have their own bed. The facilities were great- clean and well supplied with linens and towels. The pool and BBQ area were also a nice addition. We met some very nice people hanging out at the pool. The location was quite central but a car is necessary as things are within 5 minutes drive, but not quite walking distance. Overall we loved it and would stay there again.
Kauhale Makai is centrally located on the island. It is a quick 20 minute drive to the airport, or about 30 minutes up-island to Lahaina or Kaanapali. Grocery shopping and restaurants are abundant and less than a mile away. No matter what your interests are: whale watching, scuba, snorkeling, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, biking, exploring, or just laying by the pool to work on your tan, you will find this location convenient to all.
Inside the condo you will find a Welcome Booklet with insider's tips on beaches, restaurants, shopping, activities, sight-seeing and the best happy hour offers on the island! A great tool for a fabulous vacation!
