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 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!

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!

Another fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several condos over the years and this is, by far, our favorite. It's clean, updated, well appointed, comfortable for our party of 6 adults, and has an amazing location and views. Cheryl, the owner, is helpful and easy to communicate with. This was our second year staying and we plan to return again next year.

Owner's Response: Mahalo!! You are great guests. Like us, you appreciate the location of Menehune Shores being central to the island and also uniquely situated away from busy Kihei Town and yet near enough that it's easily accessible for all the shopping and good eats you could want. We look forward to having you again next year.

Outstanding family wedding experience

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect vacation and the condo was perfect. The location of the condo was very convenient to everywhere we wanted to go and on the part of the island that I prefer. Walking into the condo and being able to look straight out at the ocean was such a great feeling and being on the ground floor is so nice.

There were 6 of us there and not once did we ever feel like there wasn't enough room. Appreciated being able to use the 3 boogie boards and the skim board, they got quite a bit of use.

First day there, first time in the water we saw a turtle which so much for all of us.

The kitchen is well stocked with all the dishware, cookware you need and they have TV and electronics with very easy to follow directions to use them. There is air conditioning but really don't need it when there is a breeze, we only used it the last two nights as it was extremely warm and no breeze. Most of the time we never found a need for it. Little things like having a drying rack were great as we had a place to hang outside to hang out wet suits.

The master bedroom, bathroom was wonderful, comfortable and there was plenty of storage for a week in the master bedroom. The second bedroom and the back bedroom were also nice sized and the kids never felt crowded. And the furniture, would love to know where the furniture came from would love to have some for my home.

Overall the vacation was absolutely perfect and the condo was a big part in making our vacation a success. Lucky are those that get to stay here and I hope we are able to go back.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having you as guests. You took advantage of the things we like, too, that are within easy reach, like the beach for the kids and morning beach walks and enjoying the ocean view. We look forward to your return.

We all were very happy with our accommodations. The perfect beachfront condo. The lagoon was great for swimming when the tide was in and there were always sea turtles either resting on the rocks or swimming in and out of the lagoon. All the rooms had air conditioners that worked great when it was just to hot out. The kitchen had stainless appliances and was well stocked with all that you may need for cooking. The condo slept 6 comfortably but the futons supplied so it could sleep 8 were really only fit to sleep children maybe 10 years old and under. We had a 16 and a a 19 year old and they were not comfortable. The condo also supplied beach chairs, beach towels, floating mattresses etc., which were all used daily. The grounds of the building were immaculate, plenty of parking and the pool and surrounding area was great. We would recommend this condo to anyone and hope to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Aloha! I am glad you found so many things to enjoy about our condo and its location. You've done a nice job of writing about the particular attributes that make it unique; the waterfront location, the turtles, the lagoon, the AC, the kitchen and the grounds, etc. I feel badly that your teenagers were uncomfortable on the futons, and I can't say I blame them. The person that I talked with when your family was considering booking the unit said that they wouldn't mind. I thought I had made it clear what we offered, that there were beds for six and after that those futons, and I described them. I do specify eight because I have a lot of families that include young children that have no problem with the those sleeping arrangements, so it does work. I do always do my best to specify what we have. Unfortunately, VRBO doesn't give the opportunity to clarify better on the number that it sleeps, that is why I always try phoning, and if that doesn't work, I email the description of the situation, and then I leave it up to the people making the decision. You were good renters, and now that you know what to expect, I would love to have you back. Mahalo, Cheryl

Beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Worked perfectly for our multi family trip. We had a family wedding in Maui and about 5 families rented at menahune shores. I will say that our unit #115 was one of the nicest of all. Being So close to the beach was Undescribable. The owner was over the top helpful in our preparation for our trip. We will never rent another place when we head back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. Maui is a great place to "Get Mauied!" and Menehune Shores is a great place to stay when an occasion like that is planned. We look forward to your return when maybe it will be a little less hectic, though that made memories that will last forever.
