Kihei Studio Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

Beautiful Oceanfront, Ocean view Condo steps from the beach: sleeps four! Brand new condition with high-speed DSL Internet access. Immaculately kept unit, grounds and gardens. Ten miles from Kahului Airport (OGG).

Kauhale Makai is The Village by the Sea:

This beautiful, family-friendly, oceanfront property is located in North Kihei and offers breathtaking ocean and garden views. The palm-dotted white sand beach fronting the property is popular with windsurfers during the summer and offers exquisite sunsets. Located on the longest continuous white sand beach on Maui, Kauhale Makai is just steps from the ocean, with public swimming beaches and lifeguards minutes away.

A central common area includes five gas barbecue grills, three picnic tables, a pool with sundeck, a hot tub, and a children’s pool. The grounds also include a sauna, putting green, shuffleboard, and laundry facilities; and parking is free. Our guests are welcome to use the six public tennis courts and volleyball nets located to the south of the grounds.

Unit #102: Truly the Best!

Located on the ground floor at the very corner of this beautiful resort, offering you the very best in privacy and views, our studio unit has been thoroughly rebuilt and refurnished inside and out. Brand new cabinets, ceramic tile, and paint throughout. Brand new appliances and TV, DVD player, and stereo sound system; furniture including a queen-size Murphy bed and a futon couch that also opens into a queen-size sleeper.

The unit has complimentary high-speed DSL Internet access for your laptop and unlimited U.S. and Canada phone calls. Best of all is the central air conditioning that will allow you to enjoy your tropical paradise in comfort. Or sit on your own private lanai enjoying the fabulous ocean view and the swells breaking over the reef where the green sea turtles play. You can even whale watch in season (October through April), or watch the windsurfers in the summer months.

About Mike and Rie

We purchased this condo in 2010 from the former owner while we were staying in the unit, however, we just listed the unit on VRBO Sep, 2013. We met in Hawaii, got married, lived in Japan, and now we are living in Maui with our baby girls. Mike is a United States Marine Corps Veteran who has lived in Hawaii for more than 20 years. Rie speaks Japanese and English. She is originally from Saitama, Japan. We both attended Hawaii Pacific University where we earned our Masters Degrees in Business. We enjoy the beach, tennis, golf, snorkeling, driving around the island, and eating out. Our new additions; Maya was born in January 2013 and Nina was born in December 2014 are now our main hobby. We would be happy to help you with anything you would like to know about the islands.

Mike and Rie purchased this studio in 2010

Why Mike and Rie chose Maui

Like you; we came to visit or find a place in Maui. This is the first place we stayed. Clean, cozy, central A/C, fully furnished, steps to the beach and you can see the ocean from the unit. There is a nice pool/jacuzzi and a sauna. One great benefit is that the complex provides a concierge at the front desk area to help you with all the island activities you are interested in. We enjoyed it so much, we ended up buying this unit. This unit is in close proximity to great beaches, grocery stores, and restaurants and is only a 20 minute drive from the airport.

Perfect Kihei condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfectly located in Kihei, with everything a short drive (or Uber ride) away! Everything you could need is right there on South Kihei Rd. We felt like we knew where everything was in a day. The beach that is right behind Kauhale Makai has amazing sunset views. Even from the ground floor, the views all day long are simply beautiful. The unit is conveniently located as far as the entire complex goes as well. The actual condo has everything you could need from a big screen TV, full kitchen, iron, boogie boards, extra towels, and all the amenities. Our favorite though, was the double shower head in the bathroom, and the chocolate left on the bed for us was a nice personal touch. The owners were easy to get in contact with, and the front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this condo for anyone looking to have a good time in Maui while still feeling like you're at home! Thanks for a great stay!
