Air Conditioned Beautiful Oceanfront Condo Ground Floor #115

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,126 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 14 nights


About the property

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

We listened to you and added air conditioning, and there are four air handlers. They are in all three bedrooms and one 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 three 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 in beds. We can also supply futons with bedding for up to two children under about the age of ten that would not mind sleeping on the floor. 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 as close as you can be to the ocean view and be able to listen to the surf. A plus is that you are away from 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. Public tennis courts are within walking distance to the south. 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.

Please note that our cancellation policy is a fee of $250 at the time of booking up to 60 days ahead of arrival and no refund after 60 days unless we are able to re-book; then you will be refunded for those days.

About Cheryl Peterson

I live in Washington State, near Seattle. I first came to Hawaii on my honeymoon and loved it. Then when my parents were coming here often on business related to agriculture they discovered that Menehune Shores was being built, and they had one of the first opportunities to be able to pick a choice unit, and that is what they did in buying this three bedroom unit located on the ground floor and central in the building away from the road and on the water. Now my husband and I along with our two married children and four grandchildren visit as often as we can.

Cheryl Peterson purchased this condo in 1977

Why Cheryl Peterson chose Kihei

As you come to realize when you stay here is that Menehune Shores is uniquely located on Maui. It is central to be able to access the major sights but still relatively private and away from the hubbub of crowded spots yet near grocery and other shopping and restaurants, golf, everything you might want.

It is on the desirable west side of the island but not far from the airport; it is convenient to the major sights such as Haleakala, Hana, Lahaina, Wailea, some of the best beaches, and more. We truly love it.


What makes this condo unique

From your own private lanai (remember to take your binoculars!) you look out at West Maui, Kaho'olawe, Ma'alaea Bay, Lanai, and Molokini. During whale season you can see the humpbacks for a real treat.

A unique aspect of Menehune Shores is that it is located right on one of the ancient fishponds that were built for royalty (called the Ali'i) literally hundreds of years ago. It is truly a treasured cultural heritage and this one happens to be one of the best that is maintained. You can go to the website Ko'ie'ie and learn more. It is so large that today it offers the benefit of shallow wading and swimming for children and for everyone to practice their snorkeling techniques.

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!

Simply breathtaking such an amazing property

  • 5 of 5

The owner Cheryl was the nicest person. She called us the first day and then continued to communicate with our family to ensure our family was having a great holiday. Her home was beautiful and spacious with lots of household products. The condo was clean and the grass area was perfect for our family. It’s surround by beaches and the layout of the condo was perfect so we were not on top of each other. When we return we would love to stay here again. Thank you Cheryl for making our stay so enjoyable.

This place was great. We have two young kids (3yr old and 15 month old) and this place was perfect for them with the grassy area out back and just a few steps from the beach.

The condo is stocked with everything you need and is close to “downtown” Kihei and only about 35 min from Lahaina.

The beach is great for kids - no waves, shallow water and sea turtles out in the rocks.

We will be back. The property owner, Cheryl, even called the first night to make sure everything was ok. Thank you Cheryl!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. It is a great place for kids the ages of yours to be able to run out on the lawn and to the nearby beach and swimming in the ancient Hawaiian fishpond right in front of Menehune Shores. We look forward to your return!

Great place...Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Thanksgiving and the week after. You will not be disappointed. The accommodations are wonderful. Spacious rooms, Air Conditioned, well supplied kitchen and many extras including beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, sand toys and scuba masks and snorkels. The view from the patio is spectacular, especially the sunsets.

We travelled with our daughter, son-in-law and 3 small grandchildren. They loved everything. The condo is in a great location, close to shopping, great restaurants (highly recommend 808 Cafe, Maui Brick Oven and Kihei Cafe) and of course wonderful beaches.

We highly recommend Menehune115 and look forward to returning soon. Thanks Cheryl for a great week of lifetime memories.

Family Holiday in Maui - Perfect Location - Extremely Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this condo unit with our family for a holiday in Maui - we found the main floor location to be perfect for enjoying the view, quick access to the beach and pool and moving between another condo that other family members had rented. The unit was well appointed and nicely updated with all items needed for cooking, relaxing and enjoying outdoor adventures. We also found the bedrooms and bathrooms to be well sized and laid out for 6 adults to enjoy.

The location of this unit in south kihei was also perfect for traveling to other areas of the island to golf, hike, go to the beach etc. Perfect! Thank you for such a wonderful holiday - we really couldn't have asked for more!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Menehune shores unit 115 was amazing. It is ground level, roomy, clean, nicely remodeled, and the ocean is just outside our door. Our grandkids loved it, the pool, the grassy area right out our door. The beach has a walled in area that was great for kids to play in and every morning there are always turtles swimming around. The kitchen had everything we needed, well stocked. We stopped at Costco and got groceries and there are also supermarkets in the town, not far from the condo. There are many BBQ's, never had to wait for one. We had a wonderful vacation with our kids and grandkids. We will be back!!!

Thanks Cheryl for the wonderful stay at your beautiful condo.

Great swimming beach access and pool!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The AC was nice to have and the pool and beach ammenities were all there. The beds were all very firm. Some might love that but none of us did. The kitchen was fully stocked. There were a lot of towels and linens but the beach towels were pretty used so maybe bring your own. We would for sure recommended this place to others and may stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests: I think that what you meant was that the bathroom towels were pretty worn, and you are right. We have been aware of that, and I just have had a terrible time finding suitable ones, I liked those old ones so well. Poor excuse I know. But now they have already been replaced since you were there, just in the past month. I am very sorry it took so long. Interesting about the beds being more firm than your liking; I have to say that is the first such comment, but that's okay, not everyone can like the same thing. I am very glad to hear you pretty much liked everything else and that you are recommending it and may return. We would welcome you.
