About the property

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

We listened to you and added air conditioning, and it's in all three bedrooms and in the living room. This is on top of having gone 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!

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!

Amazing accomodations, couldn't ask for better!

Cheryl was very helpful, easy to communicate with, very friendly, and offered us advice because this was our first family trip to Maui. Her updated condo is very clean, well-stocked, comfortable, and the ocean view can't be beat. The best part of the trip was enjoying coffee or wine sitting on the lanai, watching whales in the distance. We were very comfortable, even for a family of six. The condo has everything you would need; even extras like boogie boards, a cooler, beach chairs, and beach towels. The condo building is great as well- barbeques to use, the pool was never busy, and there is beach access right there! We snorkelled with the kids right in front of the condo, and saw lots of fish, crabs, and sea turtles resting on the rocks! I would love to stay here again!! Thank you Cheryl, for letting us enjoy your wonderful home!

This is a very nice condo and probably the nicest in Menehune Shores. It is perfect for a family especially with young children. Its great to sit on the lanai with coffee in the morning and in the evening to watch the sunsets.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. Very central to everything on Maui. Easy access to everywhere with a car. We enjoyed coffee on the lanai every morning, and the sunsets were spectacular! Being on the ground floor was wonderful. I miss falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The condo is very well equipped, including beach chairs and umbrellas, and even water toys. This unit was great for a family vacation and we had a wonderful time. Comfortably sleeps 6 adults, and great for a girls getaway, or a couple families sharing. Condo was well equipped with the basics (pots and pans and kitchen utensils.) We enjoyed the BBQ area, and eating on the lanai. Saw turtles in the fish pond outside, as well as other fish. Very sandy beach right out the front door. I would highly recommend this condo. Cheryl was wonderful to work with and responded to our request within an hour. She called on the first day to make sure that everything was okay. I will definitely be back, hopefully soon!

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Menehune Shores is a beautiful complex. And, unit #115 provides the best of Menehune. This unit has a direct view of the fish pond and ocean. We watched beautiful sunsets from the lanai every night. And fell asleep listening to the sound of the waves. We were there in November and never needed to use the air conditioning. The temperature in Maui was always comfortable. Especially in the condo with the beautiful trade winds off the ocean that kept the condo cool.

This three bedroom condo is perfect for a family stay. We were there with my sister and niece. The condo's owner provides everything you could possibly need. The kitchen has all the pots/pans, utensils, dishes, coffee pot, etc. All towels (dish, bath, beach, etc.) and sheets are provided. There is also a washer/dryer. The owner also provides beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkeling masks and flippers.

The Menehune complex has a number of gas grills on the ground level over by the pool and on the roof (where there are also picnic tables) for you to use until 9:00 p.m. We did a lot of grilling with family and enjoyed having the gas grills and picnic tables available.

The Indian restaurant on site has amazing food and even does a lunch buffet. Menehune is also conveniently located for getting around Maui. It's not far from the OGG airport. You're close to grocery stores and other shopping centers. And, you're close to a lot of the amazing sites and towns.

One of the best parts is that you also have your own beaches to stay at if you don't feel like going anywhere. We were a little early for whale season, but saw sea turtles on a daily basis.

Highly recommend Menehune and this unit to anyone staying on Maui! And, we hope to have the opportunity to come back. Thank you!

Owner's Response: You are hired!! :) Thank you so much for such a comprehensive and positive review. You touched on the best parts of our condo #115 at Menehune Shores. It's comfortable, well supplied, and beautifully located in the building for view and convenience, plus it's well located on the island to access shopping, restaurants to say nothing of the sights and beaches that Maui offers. We look forward to your return!

Our family had a great time at Menehune Shores 115! The air conditioning was a nice surprise!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Menehune Shores 115! The location was great due to the central location on Maui and having a ground floor ocean view condo was amazing! The owner was very helpful and gave us lots of tips for our stay. All of the amenities such as air conditioning, beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach umbrellas and boogie boards made our stay wonderful. The property manager was great, he came by and converted the two twin beds into a king for us before my son and his family arrived and he also called to inform us of an island wide boil water advisory long before we heard about it on the news. We saw sea turtles in the fishing pond right outside our condo and loved that the water was not too deep for our 4 year old granddaughter to play in. We would absolutely stay again when visiting the island of Maui!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Nui Loa!! We are so glad to hear that you tuned in to the value of the location of Menehune Shores being central to the island and also Unit #115 being central to the building. It was nice to have you as our first guests to experience the AC. We also will have a learning curve in helping our guests maximize the benefit while at the same time hopefully not overdo it. We enjoyed having you and look forward to your return.
