Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 BD/1 BA, Ground Floor

Kihei Resort is located across the street from Kalepolepo, a lovely protected beach which connects to Three Mile Beach, Maui's longest continuous sandy beach, ideal for early morning or sunset walks, swimming and sunning. Minutes from the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, the lush tropical gardens and peaceful lava rock fountains of Kihei Resort are a Hawaiian oasis.

Our ground level condo is designed for your vacation needs. Air conditioned and non smoking it sleeps 4 comfortably. With 621 sq. ft. of living area this condo is roomier than most in its price range. High speed wireless internet, a 42” flat screen TV, and DVD player are included.

Your vacation home is situated in a small resort with all of the units facing a lovely Japanese garden; in one corner of the complex is an inviting swimming pool with a Jacuzzi and shower, the other corner has a barbeque area. You are only a very short drive from shopping, grocery, and restaurants.

The living and dining area is about 300 sq. ft. with a feeling of spaciousness that welcomes you to make it your home away from home. The living room has a new air conditioner and ceiling fan plus a comfortable queen sleeper couch with 3 ottomans that open for storage. The kitchen is fully equipped, including all the amenities a cook will appreciate plus basic spices. The bathroom has been remodeled with tile flooring and a beautiful wood vanity with granite counter top. The bedroom has a king size bed which will provide you with a good nights sleep after an active day at the beach plus a new ceiling fan.

For your beach excursions, choose from 3 sizes of ice chests, 4 folding chairs, 2 umbrellas, 1 boogie board, 2 sets of snorkeling gear and 4 beach towels. No need to pack a lot of clothes as there is a washer and dryer with soap provided.

Located in north Kihei, less than 15 miles from the airport, the location is situated to easily explore the wide variety of all that Maui has to offer. A mile to the south is Azeka Shopping Center and Piilani Village Shopping Center to handle all of your shopping and dining needs. Included are activity centers, restaurants, post office, bank, and medical center. Nearby are a farmer's market, gift and craft fair, and Kalama Village featuring local shops and food.

Beyond the shopping is a stretch of some of Maui's best beaches, Kamaole Beaches I, II and III, some of the best body surfing beaches on Maui. Very close by is Wailea, one of the finest turtle-spotting beaches for snorkelers. Whale watching boats leave from a harbor 15 minutes north, just past the bird sanctuary and aquarium. The road to Haleakala Crater starts 15 minutes away.

You have a reserved off street parking space when you stay at Kihei Resort. Our calendar is up to date. E-mail or call us to confirm your reservation and secure your Maui vacation.

About Sheena Grannis

Christopher and I love sunshine, sandy beaches and snorkeling in the warm ocean. We live in Bellingham, WA, the Evergreen State, a lovely state with majestic mountains, many green trees and lots of rain. Seeking sunshine, we have vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands many times and decided that Maui is our favorite island with its many beaches, hiking and friendly locals. We are both semi-retired and decided to buy a condo in Maui so that we could spend more than just a few weeks enjoying the sand, sea and surf. We welcome you to our Maui home and want to help make your stay memorable and comfortable. We invite you to explore all that Maui has to offer, it truly lives up to its common name, The Magic Isle.

Sheena Grannis purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sheena Grannis chose Maui

What attracted us to Kihei Resort was the well-cared for, beautiful garden along with the general pleasant atmosphere of the well designed 64 unit condo complex.

What makes this condo unique

The resort is located in North Kihei, which we find quieter and more relaxing than South Kihei. The location lends itself to easily exploring other gems of Maui like Lahaina and Paia.

This home is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Sheena and Christopher are the best! We needed a little aloha after staying with family and they were so awesome! The property was filled everything you might need. It was very clean and welcoming. The pool and hot tub were great especially after a long day in the ocean. Also it was never crowded. You aren't going to find anywhere this nice on Maui for the price. It is a steal and I will definitely be returning. The beach across the street was also great to watch the sunset and at the right time you can find tons of turtles swimming in the waist deep water!

Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

Unit was clean and had all the amenities required for a fun week. No surprises. Easy to get to shopping and restaurants. Beaches are everywhere, from across the street or pick a new one to drive to. Very safe. Kihei is layed back but their is a spot with bars a short Uber drive away. If you're looking for night life go to Vegas. But if you want sun, beach, surfing and a drop in blood pressure this is a great spot. Eat the Poke from the Foodland as well.

Great location; wonderful condo complex

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this ground floor condo in the Kihei Resort. This location in Kihei is great; just a short drive to the busy and happening South Kihei action (tons of restaurants and great swimming beaches), but just far enough North so it felt more like a retreat and like we weren't crammed in with all the other tourists. We weren't really familiar w/ best spots to stay, as it was our first time on Maui, and so we felt that we really lucked out with this great condo. The complex is across the road from the ocean; you can walk out to a beautiful beach in just a few short minutes. The grounds of the complex were lush and superbly maintained; the rock fountains and beautiful trees and flowers were so nice to enjoy while walking to and from the condo to the parking lot. We enjoyed the tranquility of the complex... no congestion in the parking lots and not much noise. We did not feel on top of of our neighbors, whom we barely saw at all. We were the only ones in the pool on the day that we ventured over there... nice jacuzzi, and pool was nice and clean. It's clear that the complex takes pride in the maintenance. Compared with the two condo complexes that our other family members stayed at, we felt like we'd lucked out with the best setup.

The inside of the condo is well appointed; we especially liked having several coolers to choose between, and some nice beach chairs with backpack straps. There are beach umbrellas and beach towels, too. When we realized that the only A/C unit was in the living room, we were initially a little nervous about whether the bedroom would be too hot to sleep comfortably, but it wasn't an issue at all. The wi-fi worked well. We enjoyed a few snacks and meals out on the lanai (ground floor balcony). The breeze in the afternoons felt wonderful. You'll see these funny little lizards scampering around everywhere in Maui-- watch them long enough, and they'll put on quite a show, fanning out their throats like a frog, some with bright red color! Amazing.

Sheena had told us that the shower was going to be redone the week before we arrived, and it turned out beautifully. The bathroom looked great.

We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this complex, and this particular condo, to vacationers looking to experience Maui. Sheena was great to deal with; very courteous in her emails and promptly refunded our security deposit after our departure. A+! Thanks Sheena!!!

Luv this rental!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Kihei Resort. We love to cook and so we were able to shop for groceries and make some very delicious meals in the beautiful kitchen. We also enjoyed having our own w/d and the fact that beach towels, a cooler, and lots of other things were supplied for our use. The beaches are w/in walking distance and there is a swimming pool with hot tub just around the corner from this unit. I loved that it is on the 1st floor and we had a reserved parking space..The only somewhat annoying thing was the a/c window unit (which we were glad to have) was very loud and we couldn't really watch TV and hear it very well....However, there is a DVD player and a couple of really good movies that are for your use too. I love the location and the way it's in the middle of beaches & shopping but not all that overcrowded with people....All in all it was a wonderful experience.
