About chris john maune
We are three families who purchased this home back in 2014. We have been coming to the Hawaiian islands together since 2006, sometimes multiple times a year. Given our love for this place, we finally decided to purchase a place of our own. This home is special to us, because it means our families can continue to come to the island and enjoy time together. We hope you fall in love with this special place too!

Why chris john maune chose Halama Street
Our house is located in Kihei, which is one of our favorite towns in Maui. If you like sun and beach, this is the house for you. The town itself is a great beach town, with lots of shops, local flare, and next to all of the upscale amenities in Wailea. There's great golf courses all less than 5 miles away, and there is easy access to activities like snorkeling, snubba, surfing, biking, hiking, lounging on amazing beaches, etc. The house is also on a great safe street, with no traffic, and right across the street from the ocean. There is also a large park two blocks down with tennis courts, a roller skate rink, soccer fields, running paths along the ocean, etc.
What makes this House unique
Central and close to virtually everything you'll need for a memorable and great family vacation.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great house for families with kids
We had a great time staying at this house. We enjoyed the great kitchen, loft (“man cave”), beach towels and chairs etc, large TVs, ample parking, eating areas, and more. Thank you!
Perfect family vacation
This was a perfect vacation home for our family of 10. Everyone had their own space and large spaces to gather together as well. The owners provided everything we needed. It was clean, well-stocked, and even had things we could use for beach excursions. Lots of little touches that just made our stay that much more pleasant. The owners were available to us, helpful, and a pleasure to work with. We had easy access to a nearby beach and every member of the family had a great time. We would definitely rent again if ever in the area.
Beautiful home, lovely visit!
We loved everything about our visit. Chris is fabulous at communication & making sure we were settled and checked in. The beautiful home was even lovlier than the pictures. The light & open floorplan made for a great family vacation.
There were 9 of us & there was so much room to relax & spend time together. We loved having the windows open with the wonderful Hawaiian breeze & happy sounds of the wildlife.
The rooms were fabulous with an air conditioner in each one for the nights the heat was high & the breeze was gone.
Beach towels, chairs & umbrellas for relaxing at the beach were so appreciated as was the outside rinse off hoses/shower. There were even washers & dryers available!
A short walk to the lovely beach with turtles resting in the shore every night. Another 1 mile short walk to the Kamala park & paddleboard/surfing lessons in the cove. We had a great visit driving to different locations around the island but were always happy to come back 'home' to this centrally located gem.
I look forward to our next visit to Maui & hope to be able to stay RIGHT HERE!! I recommend this lovely home 100% and I only hesitate because I want to keep it my very own secret spot!! Thank you Chris for welcoming us into your home so we could create such wonderful memories! xoxo
Great house in Kihei a short walk to a nice beach.
We really enjoyed our stay. Experience Maui in a quiet, high end, beach neighborhood. Open floor plan with plenty of room for several families. Walking access to restaurants, bars, shopping in Kihei ( about 3/4 mile). Chris, one of the owners, was very helpful before and during our stay. This is a very different experience from staying at a resort. Feels more like being a local.
AMAZING property that exceeded our expectations!
Chris was a great and responsive host. Very wonderful to work with in advance of our trip, responded to questions within 24h. the house far exceeded the picutures. The porch was great to spend time visiting and drinking coffee or just listening to the waves. The beds were comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed. Excellent home and well recommended!
Location, Facility, Owner
I was hesitant to stay in Kihei as our other trips we stayed in West Maui. The location of the house exceeded our expectations. Such a quiet neighborhood. The sounds of the wildlife made it seem like we were in a forest. The local beach was so nice for sunset and turtle watching. We had 15 to 20 minute walks to several good restaurants and bars so we didn't need to Uber or have a DD. Few minute drive to Kamaole 1 which had great swimming. 10-15 minute drive to nice restaurants in Wailea.
The house itself is very spacious. With 10 people we never felt crowded. Kitchen has all new appliances and is large enough for several people to prepare food in. There are so many dishes, cups, wine glasses... that we never ran out. Table was a little small to seat all 10 at the same time. But some could sit on the bar stools close to table. The tables and all the chairs on the outside patio were wonderful. The patio provided shade and sun areas. It was very convenient for the owner to allow us to use the large cooler, beach chairs, and beach towels. I hope all renters respect the borrowing of this equipment. The 2 washers and dryers were wonderful as clothes gets dirty at the beach. The house was fully stocked with essentials like TP, garbage bags, paper towels... That is hit and miss when renting a house. Made it so nice not to have to spend vacation time shopping for supplies.
Having access to Chris via text or call was very valuable. Usually you have to deal with a management company with slower response. The water valve broke in one bathroom and Chris had it fixed within a few hours. No inconvenience to us after we told him.
Chris also had nice recommendations for restaurants, snorkeling... He was the owner and concierge.
Many water hoses to wash off before entering the house. Plenty of parking.
Very positive experience renting this house from Chris. Since he stays there occasionally he is very familiar with how everything functions.
