About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Our 4th floor, elevator-serviced, spacious, cathedral-ceiling, fully-appointed vacation condominium, with three ceiling skylights, awning-covered lanai, indoor and outdoor dining tables, offers spectacular panoramic ocean views and splendid sunsets, and will be your home away from home.

Dine on the lanai and watch the changing sea and sky, stretch out by the pool or Jacuzzi with a good book and a cool drink, contemplate the future with a soak in the sauna, BBQ your dinner on the gas-fired BBQ's at either the tennis courts or the pool, play a game of golf at nearby Wailea and Makena courses, or better yet stroll across the road to one of the finest white sand beaches on Maui - the beautiful Kamaole I and II beaches, where the gentle surf will lure you in to swim and snorkel the reefs in the clear warm blue waters, then bask in the bright Kihei sunshine. As an added plus, from December till May, humpback whales will lure you shoreward to watch mothers cavorting with their calves.

Kihei's average daytime temperature is in the low 80's and evenings are always pleasant. Its central location allows you to reach all the wonderful activities available on Maui easily. Windsurfing, paddling, kayaking, and surfing are all easily accessible sports for the adventurous, and world class resort golf courses and fine dining are minutes away. A visit to our beautiful island paradise will unveil the true meaning of 'Maui no ka oi' or Maui is the best!

About Carole Eiserloh

Lothar was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and Carole was born in Brooklyn, NY, but we both spent our early years in Los Angeles, and went to UCLA. We moved to San Francisco in 1967 where Lothar was a Juvenile Probation Officer, and Carole a high school English and history teacher,librarian and community college instructor. We made our first trip to Hawaii in 1975 and decided it was where we wanted our vacation home. We have 2 sons, Eric, an educator and Kris, an architect, who has given us 3 lively grandsons and a beautiful grand-daughter, ages 24 to 8. The whole family loves swimming and snorkeling, and We spent many years SCUBA diving around the world. Now that we're retired we spend most of the year in Hawaii enjoying its beauty, the beaches, the weather and the wonderful Aloha spirit of the people.

Carole Eiserloh purchased this condo in 1991

Why Carole Eiserloh chose Kihei

We fell in love with our Kihei Alii Kai condo at first sight. Spacious rooms, a cathedral ceiling and the property amenities were many. We loved the spectacular ocean views and easy walking distance to the Kamaole Beaches - among the very best in Maui for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding, or just relaxing on the soft white sand with a good book. The property amenities, the ease of traveling to any point on the island and proximity to our shopping needs all made Kihei Alii Kai a perfect vacation home for us and our family. We now have a new hiking trail which begins at the Kamaole Beaches and continues all the way to Wailea. The path is easily traversed and is completely off the roadway. There are wonderful views and beach access is readily available. Restaurants dot the path in Wailea so stopping for a bite to eat or a drink is easy to do before your trip back home. Our son Eric enjoys paddling with local canoe groups and Kris has his choice of golf courses within minutes of our condo. Our grandkids race to the beach each morning and spend the day boogie boarding, swimming and playing in the surf. We also love to jump in the ocean each morning and snorkel to see the turtles and explore the reefs.

What makes this condo unique

Since our family uses this as our vacation home, we are very well furnished and equipped and share these amenities with our guests. We want them to have all the comforts of home, including a renovated kitchen, a 42" Smart cable TV and Wifi. We also provide beach chairs, mats and towels, beach umbrella, boogie boards, toys for the kids, and a library of good beach reads. Our covered parking, elevator and beautiful pool, jacuzzi and tennis court make this a true vacation getaway. We want this to be your home away from home too, and have made it as welcoming as we can. "Kihei no ka oi" = Kihei is the best!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We sure do NOT want to leave! We had such a great time in Maui. Staying at

your condo made it so easy for us. Having all the amenities was so

wonderful especially being here with our kids. It was just perfect for us & we

hope to return to your unit again.

Lothar . . . Thanks again for all your help - you were the King of emails!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two ten-year-old sons and I spent a simultaneously exciting and relaxing month at this condo.

It is as described on the website; large, comfortable, well appointed and within easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants, stores. and watersports rentals. The condo is also immaculately clean.

We enjoyed the equally well maintained pool, hot tub and tennis courts.

It is also a convenient starting-off point for an adventure anywhere on the island.

The owners are very friendly and accommodating and answered my questions about restaurants, activities and just about anything else I wanted to know.

I, hesitantly, give this rental my highest recommendation (only hesitant because I want it to be available the next time I travel to Maui.)

Owner's Response: Thanks Paul, we're certainly happy you and your family enjoyed your stay in our condo at Kihei Alii Kai. We know you all enjoyed the pool and our wonderful Kamaole 1 beach. We always try to make our guests feel welcome and try to accommodate all their needs and answer all their questions. We do hope you will be able to return soon. Don't forget, as Mahalo to our returning guests, we always give the 8th night free on your next visit. With Much Aloha to you and your family, Carole and Lothar

First Time in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This condo is all it is advertised to be. Great view, facilities, and close to local beaches, restaurants and stores. There was a heat wave during our stay and the fans and window air conditioner were a must. The owners were responsive and professional. We appreciated their help as this was our first visit to Maui. We were 5 adults and had plenty of room to relax and enjoy our vacation home.

Ocean/Molokini View

  • 5 of 5

The large canopy covered lanai provided shade in the afternoon and excellent view of the ocean and Molokini. The condo was extremely clean and was equipped with every cleaning product and kitchen spice/gadget you could possibly need and enough cutlery and dishes to serve 8 people. The major appliances; refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/ dryer and flat screen TV are all new. The condo comes complete with beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs and an umbrella. Although there is an air conditioner we never used it, as the ceiling fans and vented sky lights cooled the condo off nicely. The elevator is handy but not close enough that you hear it. BBQ facilities were excellent.

Fantastic and Even Better the Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo about 15 years ago, and came back this year (2014) being older now with young adult children. It was a good place years ago and now when we are used to more comforts and amenities, this exceeded our expectations - with older children too. I won't spend time discussing most of the features because the photographs you see are accurate. (Perhaps they don't show the large flat screen TV.) I will mention, however, that the owner Carole is a gourmet cook so the kitchen is very well appointed. Your meals on the lanai with a view of the ocean and Molokai can be a better experience than many other places as an awning can block the direct sun.

Beach towels are supplied as well as beach equipment chairs and umbrella, and toys for young children. Snorkeling is available at many beaches, but across the street from the complex is Kamaole beach park #1 with some rocks hiding fish and even sea turtles large and small and safe so that was a real extra treat. No need to drive to others unless you like to explore. Recommend "Aunties" snorkel equipment about a block away from the complex for friendly knowledgeable service from Paul the owner and equipment including masks with vision correction at reasonable prices. The washer, dryer and dishwasher seem modern and work well.

For those who like tennis, the complex has two clean courts, no waiting when we were there. Free covered parking is available for guests. The complex has elevators for those with mobility issues.

I am not a fan of using air conditioning when reasonable alternatives are available, and although the condo has an air conditioner, it also has many ceiling fans, desk fans, a a large exhaust fan for the upstairs bedroom alcove, so we used those for a better tropical atmosphere.

My wife is not easy to please for beds, but she found the master bed at least as good as ours at home.

To be sure, we have not tried others in Maui recently, but I doubt you will find anything better equipped and more comfortable for the price.

For a lifetime dining experience, in every respect, food, ambiance, beach location and service, although expensive, I recommend Mama's Fish House across the Island about an easy 35 minute drive. For great breakfast try Kihei Cafe about a mile down the road.

Amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so kind and wonderful to deal with. Everything you see is there and more, this condo is centrally located and in the best area. So quiet!! Thanks Carole for making sure we had all we needed, everything worked in the unit so well. I love your washer, dryer unit. Thanks also for all the little things like laundry soap, dishwasher soap, towels, beach chairs, road to hanna cd, cooler for beach, Chinese checkers, and so much more. Will come back for sure. Also thanks for saving us on our last night with late check out. It was raining we couldn't have imagined sitting at the airport all day. The hot tub was also exceptionally hot! Thanks again.
