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.

**UPGRADED BEAUTIFUL CONDO, TASTEFULLY DECORATED, EXTREMELY WELL STOCKED**

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.

WE DO NOT OVERLOOK THE PARKING LOT.

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 umbrellas! 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.

We stock a variety of travel books for you to use during your stay to assist you in planning your activities. There is also a concierge located in the lobby to assist you with activity information and reservations. If you choose to stay connected...FREE WIFI INTERNET and free long distance calling to US and Canada.

Mary Gibson purchased this condo in 2005

Why Mary Gibson chose Kihei

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.

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 condo in Kihei

  • 4 of 5

This was a great condo in Kihei that had all of the comforts of home with lots of little extras. It appears that nearly every condo in this property has a little ocean view. Mary was very easy to work with and was prompt with communication.

Comfortable, ocean view apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this Kihei, ocean view retreat. Both lanais have views of the ocean and the swimming pool. For me, central air and a full, modern kitchen are both necessities. The open living area with living room and dining room were comfortably furnished and complete. The bedroom and bathroom were separate from the living area by a hallway. The shower was luxurious. We were on the 4th floor of a building that had elevators. The bed was very comfortable. We couldn't get the new looking bedroom television to work. Both the owner Mary and the building staff were very helfpul and accommodating. It was a good value for the price.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the kind words. I was over right after you left and there is now a new TV in the bedroom, along with a couple of other new improvements. Hope to have you back as a guest soon!

Relaxing week in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our condo when we stayed last week. The view from the lanai was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting outside eating breakfast or sharing a cocktail in the evening. The bed was comfortable and we both slept well, thanks to a/c. Having the use of beach chairs, umbrellas and a cooler were an added bonus. The beach in front of the condo was narrow and windy, but still we enjoyed watching sunsets from there. Very convenient to the shops and restaurants in Kihei. We would definitely stay there again.

Great location and condo

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience. It did not disappoint! The condo was in a great location, with all the amenities. Unfortunately we were so busy trying to get in all the sites of Maui that we didn't get to enjoy the pool or outdoor grills or even the beach directly behind the condos!

The only issue was that the tv in the bedroom did not work at all and the main sliding glass door on the lanai was very difficult to open, otherwise a very nice place to call home for the week that we were there!

Definitely will return if/when we go to Maui again!

Thanks Mary for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: Thanks Liz for your review! I'm glad you had a nice time and I appreciated your feedback regarding the TV and the glass door. This is exactly why we visit Maui several times per year, just to make sure all is well. I am going over this weekend and already have the TV and the door on my list! Hope to have you as a guest again very soon. Much Aloha!
