Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea condo description

Aloha... Let us invite you to our stylishly remodeled Kauhale Makai oceanfront condominium with 'top of the world' ocean and mountain view. With warm, tropical colored paints, cool floor tiles, and amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen, entertainment center, central air conditioning, and WIFI wireless Internet, our condo will make you feel right at home. The penthouse location of our condo allows for breathtaking, panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and hills from the bedroom, living room, kitchen and lanai. Relax and sit in the lanai with a cool drink, and when in season, see frolicking whales. The condo is conveniently located; just a 20 minute drive from Kahului airport. Surrounded by Maui's great beaches, you only need to walk across our lush lawn to feel sand on your toes. It's within walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants, and a short drive away from Wailea's boutiques and high end shops. At the end of the day, enjoy the famous Hawaiian sunset. During October to April, you can even watch whales frolic (please feel free to use the binoculars that we have supplied in your condo).

In short our condo is HOME away from HOME.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: I moved to United States in 1986, married my childhood friend and have 2 older children.

                          Why the Owner Chose Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea:
                          There are a myriad of reasons why my husband and I chose to purchase a condo in Maui, but the basis of almost all those reasons would be our upbringing in a tropical country. The flora and fauna of Maui are reminiscent of a purer version of the island where we grew up, as do the local arts and crafts, while the cities and shopping centers of Maui offer the urban comforts that we have grown accustomed to. Also, Maui is home to many varieties of exotic, tropical fruits that aren’t found very easily on the mainland, such as breadfruit. Having grown up eating these fruits, getting to taste them again in Maui is like reliving a little slice of our childhoods. Our favorite thing about Maui, however, would probably be the temperate climate. Of all the places we’ve visited, Maui has the no-contest best weather. During the summer, it is comfortingly warm without being too humid or dry while during winter one would never need more than a light jacket. Finally, we decided to purchase our condo because we have realized that even beyond vacationing in Maui, we would enjoy living there after retiring. With all the island activities, such as snorkeling, kayaking, hula lessons, and even simply relaxing in the beach, there is no shortage of things to do; and the welcoming nature of the locals means that Maui already feels like home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          My husband and I live in the city, amid all its hustle and bustle, so while in Maui we love being able to relax at the condo while still having the opportunity to work from our laptops. The main difference is that we get to see the breathtaking views of the ocean, and if we’re lucky, maybe even whales in the wintertime. One can also go for walks in the evening to watch the sunset or simply enjoy it from the lanai. The condo and the surrounding complex have so much to offer, from the swimming pool to barbecue grills, to a complete and modern-looking kitchen in our condo, where one can enjoy preparing simple meals while watching the waves crash upon the shore.
