Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We bit the bullet and in 2010 went all out in creating a professionally custom designed spectacular unit! You will not find another unit like it in Menehune Shores, and especially the fact that it is 3 bedroom, all of Kihei. As you walk in, you know right away that the color scheme, furnishings, and decor are special. We moved walls and increased the sizes of both bathrooms, without sacrificing adjoining rooms, a big plus.

We welcome those who appreciate quality and comfort. The unit accommodates six, and as guests stay here, we are finding they want to return.

The unit is located on the ground floor in the center front of the building offering convenient accessibility from parking on one side and access to beaches, the manicured lawn, and the pool on the other. It is the closest you can get to the ocean to view and listen to the surf. A plus is that you are away from any road noise. As you sit on your own lanai, you are looking at the historic 16th Century Alii (royal) fishpond of Ko'ie'ie, and during whale season (Dec-Apr) you can watch the humpback whales in Ma'alaea Bay. You also view the islands of Lanai and Kaho'olawe and Molokini crater. From the lanai, it's a treat to step out at night and enjoy the starry skies.

The unit is outfitted with free wi-fi, a 54 inch widescreen TV, home theater/entertainment surround system with Blu-Ray player and Netflix access. The kitchen has been updated with modern high-end appliances, new cabinets and counters throughout, king size beds in two bedrooms and twins in the third.

Next door is the Kalepolepo Park and Beach, and then the Hawaiian Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary and Learning Center that offers talks on a regular basis. It is a very short drive to various restaurants, grocery shopping, plus a complete variety of shopping. Excellent golf courses are nearby. Tennis courts are within walking distance. The Pacific Ocean Center with a wonderful aquarium is a short drive. You are centrally located to the whole island. You view Haleakala one direction and the Pacific Ocean in the other. It is a true Maui paradise!

Take a look at the pictures of the condo and of things to do while on Maui. Many of them were taken recently by a guest that stayed for a month.

About Cheryl Peterson

Our family purchased this property when the building was being built in 1977, and we have enjoyed it ever since.

Cheryl Peterson purchased this condo in 1977

Why Cheryl Peterson chose Maui

It is wonderfully located on the island for accessibility to Maui's major sights such as Hana and Haleakala plus many of the island's best beaches.

What makes this condo unique

We spend a lot of time right at the condo taking a brisk beach walk, playing games, swimming, snorkeling, boogey boarding, enjoying the beach, playing shuffleboard, or we simply enjoy being together in the wonderful warm weather and Hawaii atmosphere. We also like to take a day and go to Lahaina. That's an easy drive. Or we may drive to the top of Haleakala; we need to have brought our jackets for that one. Or we may elect to take the infamous, beautiful, and extremely interesting 'Road to Hana.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 2 children and 4 adults had a fabulous 10 day stay at #115 during a family wedding in Maui! This spacious 3 bedroom unit is even lovelier than the photos indicate with a particularly lovely kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. It was also sparkling clean when we took possession! Thank you Richard! The first floor location less than 40 feet from the ocean was ideal for unobstructed views of the humpback whales, breathtaking sunsets and for falling asleep to the waves at night!

Thanks Cheryl for being wonderful to work with and the condo is beautiful. We loved the area and her place is so comfortable for a family, with activities, the beach, pool and shopping nearby. Would definitely stay there again!

Spacious, clean, with beautiful views right on the water! Many of the condos in the area sit far back from the ocean with minimal views, this unit couldn't get any closer! Loved the grass in the back of the unit for the kids to play and the fishing pond is perfect for little ones.

The owner couldn't be nicer or more welcoming. Thank you Cheryl, we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much. You are right about it being so close to the water unlike most of the condo buildings along Kihei. It is unique in that way. We enjoyed having you as guests and look forward to your return.

Outstanding value for the money!

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding rental. We have stayed at 7 other condo's, and 3 others here at Menehune Shores. This is by far our favorite! Very clean! Well laid out with 2 master suites. The view is amazing. Beach access is right out the slider. Very well stocked, no need to buy extra's. Everything is beautiful! We will be staying no where else on Maui!

Downshifting in Paradise - Nani Koki

  • 5 of 5

The rental was perfection personified! The condo is beautifully decorated and well appointed - equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Very clean, well stocked (beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear - a "beach all-inclusive!). The ground floor location made for easy access from the parking lot, and easy access to the beach from the lanai for leisurely walks on the un-crowded beach. Morning coffee on the lanai is a must! The roof top deck is also a must! Both the Lanai and the roof is the perfect place to unwind and take in the oceanfront view and the stunning sunsets. Great location - so easy to get to all the many sights that Maui has to offer (Road to Hana, Haleakala Crater, Paia, Lahaina, Alii Kula lavender farm, Nakalele Blowhole, etc) . I would highly recommend checking out Kai Kanani Sailing Charters for snorkeling & sunset cruises. The owner, Cheryl Peterson, was so easy to work with. She was the perfect hostess from the start to finish - from booking the unit, to calling upon our arrival to make sure everything was in order and to our satisfaction. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking to have an epic vacation.

Excellent Ground Floor Ocean View Condo

  • 5 of 5

We took our son, daughter-in law and two grandkids for a week and this unit was perfect. The ground floor worked out great for kids to play on the grass. It is very clean, modern, and well appointed. The view is fantastic and it is just a few steps to two different ocean beaches as well as the pool. We will return again. The owner is absolutely fabulous to work with!

Owner's Response: Oh, thank you so much. I enjoyed working with you, too, and so glad you had such a good time. I do try to make sure my guests are comfortable and their needs met. That part is my enjoyment. Looking forward to your return.

Over and beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

We feel so lucky to have found this condo. It was perfect for the five of us: each bedroom is nicely decorated and the two bathrooms fit our needs. This condo had been remodeled and we were very impressed how beautiful everything was. It was clean, well stocked and had everything we needed, including beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling name it! At first I wasn't too thrilled about being on the ground floor, but that ended up being the best part of it all. The location is fabulous! We often sat on the lanai, enjoying the oceanfront view. It was nice to be able to walk right out the back door and go for a walk. One of our friends actually went on a outrigger paddling trip, which they do every Monday, Wednesday and Friday right by the condo. You can also snorkel there and you'll see plenty of turtles. There is an Indian restaurant in the building if you don't want to venture out to eat. If not, there are plenty of good restaurants nearby (best to have a car, nothing really in walking distance). The owner, Cheryl Peterson, has been a pleasure to work with. She always quickly answered any questions we had before the trip and called us the day we arrived to make sure everything was okay.

We absolutely loved this condo and are so happy we ended up with it. This was our first time using VRBO and if every experience will be as positive as this one, then we have it made! We HIGHLY recommend this unit and hope to come back here soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for this wonderful review. We do happen to feel the same way you do, it is a jewel of a find because of location and location. First, Menehune shores is well located on the island to be able to get around and see the sights, whether it is to drive to Hana, go up to Halelakala, or to drive to Lahaina and enjoy what West Maui has. Then, our unit, #115, is conveniently located on the ground floor so you and the kids can go right out on the manicured lawn and to the beach and pool; also it is front and center in the building so away from the road and as close to the ocean as you can hope to be. We look forward to your return.
