Property description

My FABULOUSLY LUXURIOUS OCEANVIEW 1 bedroom / 2 bath condo is located in the Maui Kamaole Condominium complex: South Kihei's finest first class property. It is located in South Kihei, on the Wailea border with beautiful beaches, all of the Wailea resorts, shopping, restaurants and championship golf courses close at hand. My condo is directly across from the most popular Kihei beach, Kamaole III Beach and Park; swimming, snorkeling, surfing and wave riding are excellent here, this is also the 'Mallory Square' (ala Key West) of Maui. Take a few of my 'beach' wine glasses and a fabulous bottle of wine, and celebrate the end of, yet another, PERFECT day in PARADISE; surrounded by locals and guests alike - all thanking their lucky stars that they're on Maui (also known as Heaven).

Maui Kamaole's 23 acre condominium property is a low-rise and low-density complex with extensive lawns and lush tropical landscaping enhancing its' dramatic hillside setting. My smoke-free unit is located in the most desirable oceanview 'A' building. There are no obstructions in front of my condo, assuring you of stunning and UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN VIEWS, sunsets, views of the island on Lanai and Molokini Crater, stargazing and whale watching from the privacy of your own lanai.

My unit is a very spacious 900 square feet on the ground floor (a ramp from the parking area and no steps into the unit make it handicap accessible). It is flooded with sunlight, modern, comfortable and very well equipped. Being a New York City interior designer, I selected the furniture, art and finishes to reflect an island serenity and theme without resorting to the tacky cliché of tropical pastels and prints. The entire condo was completely remodeled in 2010 - 18'x18' stone floor tiles throughout (extending to both the ocean and mountain lanais, as well); a new kitchen with new appliances, maple cabinetry, granite counters, cookware, dishes and glassware; two sumptuous custom baths with marble showers (both large enough for two), Grohe fixtures, granite basins, imported light fixtures, bamboo hardware and Ralph Lauren bath linens.

The bedroom is large with brand new, pillow top king-size bed outfitted with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, an en suite master bath with dual sink vanity & walk-in shower, two large closets, Indonesian teak furniture and a completely private, enclosed lanai. The living/dining area has an open, airy feeling with earth-toned upholstery, teak & koa wood accents, an antique Chinese media cabinet (which houses the entertainment system complete with AM/FM stereo, CD & Bose iPod sound doc, DVD and 32-inch, flat-screen color TV), bamboo wall coverings and original artwork (from Hawaiian artists). All of these elements blend harmoniously with the unimpeded ocean views from the 22'+ expanse of glass composed of new, insulated and soundproof, double sliding doors.

This is not a standard rental condo; it is a chic and comfortable island home. In fact, this is my Maui residence three to four months annually. I limit my rentals to two adults and children over 16 who will care for my property, and enjoy it as much as I do. It is the perfect place for the extended, comfortable, romantic stay on Maui. My welcome goes out to honeymooning couples (champagne gift baskets and in-room couples massages can be arranged in advance for an additional charge). Additionally, I enthusiastically welcome seniors, singles and gay travellers.

Amenities at Maui Kamaole Condominium complex include multiple tennis courts, two swimming pools (one with a waterfall), hot tubs, poolside gazebos and gas barbecue areas. Excellent shopping at the Shops at Wailea - numerous art gallerys and clothing stores as well as Tiffany's, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Coach (the BEST managed Coach store in the world, BTW), etc., movie theaters, restaurants (Spago at The Four Seasons, Sarrento's on the Beach, Joe's Bar and Grill, Maui Taco, Longi's, Roy's, Cafe O'Lei, Sansei Sushi, etc.), championship golf and the best beaches on all of Maui are literally steps away (I've spent thousands of hours on Keawakapu Beach - a 5 minute walk as are Kamaole I, II & III; and my all time favorite - Wailea Beach in front of the Four Seasons Resort - is a 5 minute drive with ample parking). The historic whaling town of Lahaina & world famous Ka'anapalii Beach are 24 miles (45 minutes) away; horseback riding at Makenna stables is 9 miles away (25 minutes); the Maui Ocean Center & Aquarium at Ma'alea Harbor is 10 miles away (20 minutes). Additionally, necessities such as grocery stores, pharmacies, dry cleaners, hair/nail salons, post office, Starbucks, Blockbusters, etc. are minutes away. Whale watching in the winter is excellent from the comfort of my direct oceanview lanai.

Also, I have regular contact with the 1BR/2Ba unit next door to mine, so ASK if you need more space - as often both units are available at the same time!! Finally, my on-island Assistant is happy to stock the fridge with essentials like coffee, fruit, etc., prior to you arrival upon request (additional charge will apply).

Feel free to call with any questions you may have.

MAHALO!

ADDITIONAL AMENITIES IN MY UNIT INCLUDE SNORKLE MASK AND FINS IN ASSORTED SIZES, TOMMY BAHAMA BEACH CHAIRS, RALPH LAUREN BEACH TOWELS, BEACH UMBRELLAS, BEACH BAGS, A PICINIC BASKET with THERMOS & OUTDOOR BLANKETS (TO MAKE YOUR HALEAKALA @ SUNRISE TRIP BETTER - BRRRR!), COOLERS IN ASSORTED SIZES, WOODEN HANGERS IN ALL CLOSETS & A BOSE iPod DOC (SO YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN TUNES!

Great Maui condo with ocean views! 07/29/2010

VRBO Bear stayed here:


I just got back from a very relaxing vacation in Maui. I stayed at this beautiful condo in Kihei. Kihei is such a nice town - quiet and peaceful, yet lots of fun things to do within walking distance. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and even a club or two with live music for evening entertainment. There's a beach just steps across the road and many more within a very short drive. I swam on the beach and snorkeled, and relaxed by the very nice pools that the condo community has to offer.

Maui is a gorgeous island and this condo is centrally located in Kihei so that you have quick and easy access to things like helicopter rides or driving up the volcano for the incredible views of the island. I highly recommend the helicopter ride. It was the best! You are also a very short drive away from Maalaea where you can catch a sunset cruise, deep sea fishing or snorkeling cruises.

The unit itself is nicely decorated with local island flair. It has everything you need to have fun on the beach, including beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach mats and towels. It's situated at the front of the complex facing the ocean so you have an amazing view. I spent time out on the lanai just watching the ocean and relaxing.

The owner was gracious and helpful. He even provided a book in the condo with restaurant menus and recommendations as well as activities to help you plan a great time while you're here.

I highly recommend Maui for your next vacation and this condo is the place you want to stay in Kihei when you go!
