About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Aloha and welcome to Maui Condos By The Sea

This is a terrific condo..not only is it located in a great, centrally located complex with a beautiful oceanfront pool, spa, kiddie pool, sauna and BBQ's, it has amazing ocean views, privacy and recently remodeled!

Watch the beautiful sunrise light up the West Maui Mountains..sunsets setting in the ocean...whale watching in the winter months...all from the lanai, actually two lanais since the bedroom has the same view. Even at night the lights of Maalea Bay twinkle in the distance and no need to pull the drapes as unit #308 is on the North side of the North building..not in the center prying eyes watching your every move and no noise!

When you're not being mesmerized by the view,

Sleep in your new Beautyrest king sized bed, on top- notch linens and 100% down pillows.

Cook in your fully equipped kitchen and serve meals on the large granite bar or on the lanai.

Relax on a brand new queen sofa sleeper (due mid Nov.) in front of a new 55' LED TV complete with WIFI, Netflix, Hulu, etc. Call your friends in Canada or the US mainland free. By the way, for that third guest... the queen sleeper is a memory foam mattress...most comfortable sofa sleeper I've ever laid on!

And, with that said, You're going to want to get out and explore all the wonderful things our Island has to offer...fabulous restaurants, art galleries, golf, snorkeling, and beaches everywhere so, freshen up in your newly remodeled bathroom..granite counter, vessel sink and tub/shower combo and stay cool with the quiet central A/C!! ( a must in the summer months)

Grab the furnished beach chairs, umbrellas and a cooler and head to the beach! Everything you'll need for a wonderful vacation is provided...just bring a suitcase!

As I said before, Kauhale Makai is centrally located, in the quieter part of Kihei and away from all the traffic, noise and people in South Kihei....and everything is closer. 3 min walk to our oceanfront public tennis courts...15 min to the airport and Costco, 10 min to Wailea golf courses, only 20 min to Lahaina and 5 min to Maui's great restaurants and shopping.

Come and enjoy the magic Maui has in store for you...the facilities, friendliness and location of Kahuhale Makai and the views, amenities, cleanliness, and quiet of your vacation condo!

PS We just purchased this condo in Oct 2013 and as VRBO will not allow you to transfer visitor reviews from one owner to the next, I have added the actual reviews submitted to VRBO through the previous owner.

About Rob Boettner

Don and I bought our first vacation condo at Wailea Ekahi in the mid 90's and escaped to Maui from Los Angeles as much as we could. Loved Maui so much that we retired here in 2000, designed and built a home in Maui Meadows, then moved to a real 'fixer' in Wailea and have spent the last year completely remodeling it. We have also remodeled 4 condos on Maui for friends.

Creating beautiful, comfortable and functional living space is our hobby and we love doing it. We must love it because we've been remodeling homes for the past 29 years!

We purchased this in Oct. 2013 and will constantly be making upgrades...New art and new furniture is due mid Nov!! New kitchen cabinet doors by end of 2013..and not because there's anything wrong with these...I just HATE white cabinets! Unlike many condo owners whose ONLY motivation is to make as much money as possible we take pride in our ability to make visitors happy with the decision they made!

Rob Boettner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rob Boettner chose Maui

Kauhale Makai is a great spot for vacationing visitors.

Oceanfront with great views, Beautiful pool and grounds, and friendly people all in quiet and peaceful surroundings and yet, still close to everything Maui has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

We live on Maui, in Wailea and only 10 min from the property. We take pride in our condo and EVEN do the cleaning! If there are any problems we are here to take care of them immediately...not 2500+ miles away. You aren't dealing with a property manager that has a ton of units and OTHER guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic location in the middle of everything. The apartment is beautiful.

We will be back shortly!!

Thanks Shirley!!!!Maui Forever!

In theory it would have been great but things were a bit off...

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was well furnished and supplied with essentials which was super appreciated. However, the atmosphere felt very damp. Not sure if this is due to the building or lack of ventilation in an apartment on the beach. The linens seem worn. I assumed they were clean but some of the bath towels had stains and the comforter on the bed seemed dirty. We also had an incident where bugs on the kitchen counter got into our take out box within a few hours of arriving. We threw out the take out and didn't see them again but I assume they came from the apartment.

Great unit with updated decor!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit met all of our expectations during our stay. The interior is updated and the complex is fairly queit. The location is also ideal for Kihei activities, and within a reasonable travel distance to surrounding areas!

BEST STAY out of our group!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this condo for about a week for my then-upcoming wedding, and we absolutely loved it. It was really nice and clean, along with a great view. They had everything you'll need, from kitchenware to beach towels. They even have Netflix!

Out of our entire group of friends' condos, this one was easily the most modern and nicest. Everyone always ended up in our room to hang out. Even after I moved to the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa's higher end room for my wedding, it really lacked in comparison to this condo.

I highly recommend to anyone who wants to come back to a nice and bright home after a long day under the Maui sun. Thanks Rob for the great stay!

Awesome views!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved the view, even if it was over the parking lot. We even saw whales a few times through our binoculars from the lanai while eating lunch. We used the beach chairs to enjoy the sunset by the beach just yards away. The office had an agent to help us book excursions, which was a nice surprise. Everything was as described. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Couple time in Maui

  • 4 of 5

I would reccomend this property.

It has all you need..

Yes, the lanai overlooks the parking lot, but it is still a great sunset view every night, and we were able to greet our neighbors as they came and went.

Had a few bbbq's down in the yard and met more couples chilling. Was not crowded and the bbqs all worked.

The owners had had a brand new fridge installed, but it wasn't working so we used a cooler and ice while waiting for the repair guy to come. He didn't show up till we left, but it wasn't the owners fault. He responded right away. It's a common problem with that model. I am sure the problem has been remedied by now.

The toilet is slow flushing. I would replace it and the bed could be upgraded to an actual bed frame with new mattress.

Otherwise, the place is as stated. Clean and comfy. There are beach chairs and umbrellas and coolers to use.

I would stay here again.
