YOUR SEARCH IS OVER! Our recent EXTENSIVELY remodeled condominium offers stunning OCEAN AND ISLAND VIEWS from the living areas as well as the bedroom! You won't find ocean views from the bedroom in many Kihei properties.


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. Our view is ABOVE the tree level and completely unobstructed. We are located in the much desired Plumeria Building, at the complex. In addition to fantastic ocean and island views we overlook the impeccably maintained tropical gardens, putting green and sparkling pool area.


Our condominium is only 100 yards from the ocean--NO CROSSING THE STREET to sink your feet into the warm Maui sand! The UNCROWDED beachfront at the Kauhale Makai is excellent for long morning walks, shelling and breathtaking sunset views.

Many of Maui's world famous beaches and renowned golf courses are located just minutes away! Visit the exclusive Shops at Wailea for an out of this world shopping adventure! Our central location is convenient to many of Maui's natural attractions not to mention restaurants, shopping, grocery stores and entertainment.

We have a fully stocked kitchen with everything you need for cooking. There are 5 gas barbeques located in the courtyard/common area adjacent the pool area. Enjoy a barbeque, swim and watch the sunset for a relaxing evening at home! This is an extremely friendly complex.

For your comfort, the condo is CENTRALLY AIR CONDITIONED. There are few properties in Kihei that have this feature. We also have ceiling fans located in the bedroom and dining area.

For your day at the beach we provide beach chairs, beach towels, coolers and umbrella! Just bring the sunscreen!

For your peace of mind, we added a safe large enough for your valuables and laptop or cameras. Simply set your own code.

For your entertainment enjoy a wide variety of DVD's or CD's and IPod stereo. We also stock a variety of travel books for you to use to assist you in planning your activities. If you choose to stay connected...FREE WIFI INTERNET and free long distance calling to US and Canada.

'The moment I stepped into your home I felt at peace...your home is decorated so peacefully and can not help but feel comfortable...the view from your home is beautiful.'

'Thank you so much for a beautifully decorated and well equipped condominium...most comfortable bed we have experienced too.'

'From the decor and all the amenities you have provided, it is obvious you love this place...your place far exceeded our expectations...should we return we will definately ask for this unit.'

About Mary Gibson

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

Why Mary Gibson chose Maui

We chose to buy at Kauhale Makai for so many reasons! The views are incredible, the complex is extremely well kept. It is a small complex located in central Kihei, away from the crowds in South Kihei.

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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the lovely condo providing all we needed for a home base.

Amazing Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great place to celebrate 40 years together

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was perfect for the occasion. The entire property was clean and well cared for. Getting up every morning and looking out the lanai was incredible. As usual, the pictures cannot catch the full beauty. The owner, Mary, was helpful with every question. We are beach people, and the beach chairs, umbrellas and chairs made available are top quality. We sat out in style. The only surprise we had, and it was minor, was the laundry is community and coin operated. They were available whenever we needed them. Loved our stay. We don't know when, but if we make it back, we know the first place to look.

Property was well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything you need including nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach towels and a packable cooler. The condo overlloks the pool, BBQ and putting green and still has a lovely view of the ocean. It is in a great location near many five star beaches. If going to Kihei you definitely should go for breakfast at Cafe Kihei. Even with a line it does not take long.

Our 3rd time back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Our 3rd time. We like the fact that it is a no smoking property. The people who smoke have to step off property. The beach is not great and you don't want to go in the water there but you can drive to other beaches. This unit is perfect for 2 people.
