Our Maui condo is one of the finest condominiums within the Village by the Sea. We are located on the fourth floor on the INTERIOR of the complex.

Mary and Alex in San Diego
Alex and I live and work in beautiful San Diego.
Alex works in the restaurant industry as a bartender and I work for my families school photography company.
We have one daughter and she and her husband have blessed us with two beautiful grandchildren.
Our other loves are our two Springer Spaniels, Oliver and Lucy. They keep us very active and on our toes! VERY high energy!
Alex enjoys surfing and running. Each year he runs in the La Jolla Half Marathon. I love walking and currently participate annually in the Susan G. Komen 3Day for the Cure 60 mile walk.
We visit Maui as often as we can, most years 3-4 times per year. We also have a condo in West Maui that has a full time tenant. We hope to one day spend our time between San Diego and Maui, 6 months each.
We take great pride in providing our guests with a high quality, clean, comfortable and well stocked accommodation. You will feel very much at home during your stay.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Mary Gibson purchased this condo in 2005
We chose to buy at Kauhale Makai for so many reasons! The views are incredible, the complex is extremely well kept.
Kauhale Makai is located in the area of Kihei that is not 'hustle and bustle'. It's quiet, old Hawaiian ambiance is perfect.
There is a resident property manager onsite, lobby with concierge for guest services, oceanfront with uncrowded beach, views from all living areas, including the bedroom, I could go on and on!
Kauhale Makai is so centrally located on Maui. The location is just minutes from so many beautiful South Maui beaches. Sight see for the day and come home to a quiet, beautiful condo.
The condo was great! It was everything that we saw in the pictures plus much more. Not only was the condo very nice and spacious, but it included a lot of small items you wouldn't really think about that made our stay much more enjoyable. It's located on a main road with tons of great restaurants, bars, and beaches. But far enough away that your not fighting traffic to get in and out of your condo. Make sure you rent a car while in Maui though, everything is close but not close enough to constantly be using a taxi or walking, plus for a day on the beach you need to be able to carry your stuff around. Also the view in the picture does not do it any justice, me and my fiancé spent a good amount of time out on the deck watching sunsets and enjoying the nice ocean breeze. I would strongly recommend staying this unit! It was everything you could possibly want for your vacation plus more!
We loved staying in this apartment. It has a perfect location and is very beautiful. We even desided to stay an extra night, because we loved it there.
This condo met all of my expectations. Clean, conveniently located in Kihei. Far enough away from the strip malls to be quiet at night, but close enough to be convenient to many restaurants, beaches, and the Piilani Highway. The grounds are well manicured, pool and hot tub are well maintained and inviting.
The only problem that we encountered during our stay, ended up being a positive. When we arrived, due to a miscommunication between the owner and the management, our condo was not yet fully cleaned. Upon check in we had been given the phone number for the maintenance man the owners use. He was there within 15 minutes to start cleaning, and in less than an hour the place was totally clean. The owners then phoned me to apologize, and even refunded my cleaning fee. I am a firm believer that it's not how things run when everything goes right that is the measure of good management, but how problems are dealt with. I was completely impressed with how this situation was handled.
Overall, I could not recommend this condo any more highly as a place to stay on a nice Maui vacation. If you are looking for Four Seasons type luxury, perhaps it is not for you. If you are looking for a clean, hospitable home base for your Maui outdoor adventures, then this is the place for you.
Love the property, beach front, clean, cozy, close to everything, right price. Will stay again and again.
This condo has a classy feel with its decor and floor plan. The building and grounds with BBQ grill area and pool/hot tub are comfortable in every way. We immediately enjoyed the view from the lana'i looking over the pool out to the ocean and the mountains.
There is shopping, restaurants and a grocery within walking distance and nice beaches just a short drive away with plenty of parking.
Mary was so good to work with, always quick to respond and very helpful.
Thank you, Mary!
We truly hated to leave.
Till next time....
The condo was better than advertised on line. The view was magical and captured all the beauty Maui has to offer. The unit was very tastefully furnished and had everything anyone could want. My time there was very relaxing and comfortable. I felt very much at home. For any shopping l would recommend a car as the highway has no sidewalks and could present a danger. Mary Gibson the owner was kind, understanding and a pleasure to work with. I recommend the unit.
Many of Maui's finest golf courses are minutes away in Wailea. The exclusive Shops at Wailea are a 10 minute drive. There are several WORLD FAMOUS beaches within a 10 minute drive. Many restaurants and shopping areas are 3/4 mile from the condo. Central island location makes it easy to visit other areas of the island without long drives!
