Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea condo description
Imagine enjoying your morning coffee as whales play in the ocean that lies just yards away. Or watching the sunset over the island of Lanai as you sip your choice of beverage. These pleasures can be experienced from either of the two lanai’s of 'Le Penthouse' at Kauhale Makai (Village by the Sea). This luxurious TWO BEDROOM, TWO BATH, sixth floor OCEANFRONT condo has gorgeous, uninterrupted panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the west Maui Mountains and neighboring islands. The beachfront of Kauhale Makai is excellent for long morning walks. Don't be fooled by some 'oceanfront' claims. Ours is the straight-on West facing OCEANFRONT condo with the best ocean and sunset views on Maui!
Our condo is located on the sixth floor of the Anthurium building at Kauhale Makai. It is the largest unit in the complex. It has been COMPLETELY REMODELED. There are two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. The kitchen has all new appliances and is, of course, fully equipped. There is a dining area, which seats four. There are lanais off the living room and the master bedroom. Our condo, which has TWO-ZONED CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING, contains a TV with DVR so you can record your favorite shows and watch them at your leisure, DVD player, CD player and has a high-speed Internet connection with Wi-Fi - (you bring the computer). There are washers and dryers on every floor.
Kauhale Makai is located on the leeward side of Maui, in the town of Kihei. The mountains protect this area from the storms and rains of the northern and eastern parts of the island. The complex consists of two six-story buildings, each with two elevators. It features a pool, hot tub, kiddie pool, putting green, shuffleboard, gas barbeques and volleyball court. Public tennis courts are just a short walk away. Many of Maui’s world famous beaches and renowned golf courses are located just minutes away. Our central location is convenient to many of Maui’s natural attractions, not to mention restaurants, shopping, grocery stores and entertainment. Be sure to check out The Wailea Shops from 6:30 to 9:30 every Wednesday evening for free entertainment and The Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s website. Sorry - Our complex does not allow pets, and our’s is a NON-SMOKING condo. Our street address is 938 S. Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI.

ReviewsWrite a review
Our experience at Le Penthouse was great. We (a couple in our 30s/40s) stayed at Le Penthouse for 5 nights in August, and we would love to stay again on our next trip! First of all, the views are amazing. It was lovely having coffee and breakfast on the balcony, with an unobstructed view of the ocean. Secondly, it was SO clean. We're kind of sticklers for cleanliness, and Le Penthouse did not disappoint. We didn't see even one bug inside, and it was very, very clean. Also, it's very quiet - you can easily forget that you're in a building with other people. Le Penthouse is in a great location - close to gorgeous beaches and great restaurants. Staying at this place was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We hope to be back!!!

Owner response: Mahalo Kathryn for your very nice review of our home on Maui. We love it, also. In fact, my wife and I are counting down the days until we return to it. We too enjoy the early morning coffee and on the balcony in the morning and the adult beverage on the balcony at sunset.
This was our first time staying at Le Penthouse. We loved every moment we spent there! The balcony was great for viewing the ocean and the sunsets. The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed and very clean. It is a wonderful place and we would love to go back to it sometime again soon. Thanks Paula and Carl for the chance to experience Maui in the best way

Owner response: Aloha Volker. Thank you for your very positive review of your stay in our home on Maui. It gives my wife and I pleasure to know our guests love it as much as we do. I know what your saying about that view. The palm trees in the foreground. The blue Pacific. And those sunset's every night. Each one different than the last. I have a collection of about a thousand photographs of those sunsets should you care to see them.:-)
Fantastic Condo in Kihei

Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful home on Maui. It has everything you need for a great vacation. The views are fantastic.....the condo is clean, comfy, and quiet. We have been to Maui several times but this was without a doubt the best condo we have stayed in. We are planning our return trip for two years from now. There is a reason this condo is booked solid. Thanks Carl!

Owner response: Thank you Larissa, My wife and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our home on Maui. We take pride in our condo and continue to do what is necessary to make it the best place to stay in Kihei. You will always be welcome back. Let us know when your dates a set for your next visit to our magical island and we will reserve your dates at Le Penthouse.
I can’t say enough great things about our trip to Maui and “le penthouse”. It was our first time to hawaii and we felt like we could not have done better. It really is the best view on Maui. The place was beautiful, we used tons of kitchen stuff because we require gluten-free meals and had everything we needed. The grounds were so well-kept too. We bbq’d every night at sunset. We have two kids and they loved their room very much! I especially enjoyed the big palm tree outside the bedroom. We will be back every year. Hopefully for longer! The TV would not turn on no matter what tricks we tried, we followed the directions on the little note there too! We didn’t care though because we don’t really watch TV at home anyway – I just wanted to mention that to you. Lisa

Owner response: Thanks Lisa for the kind words about our home on Maui. I am sorry you had a problem with the big screen T.V. The "guest" that followed you did not have any problems with it. When next time you come I will talk you through it. You will always be welcome at our condo on Maui. Mahalo and Aloha.
This beautiful location was really perfect for us. Thank you!

Owner response: Aloha Evelyn, My wife and I are always pleased to find out that our guests enjoyed our home and the beauty of our island during their stay on Maui. Mahalo, Carl
This by far an away was a great location on Maui. The condo is probably the best condo location on the property, and was very clean. Our family had everything we needed to call it home. For the price you won't find a better location, more convenient rental process, and spectacular views each morning and night. If I were to provide any negative feedback it would be the pool was a bit small; but heck...you're in Maui; you should be spending your time at one of the several magnificent beaches just a short drive away. Other than that...you can't go wrong staying at "Le-Penthouse". It's no wonder this condo rents out fast and has return customers. Overall a great experience. Mahalo!!!

Owner response: Aloha Bret, Thank you very much for the very nice review of "Le Penthouse", our home on Maui. It is true, my wife and I get quite a few "guests" coming back for additional stays. I think it's because of that view from our two lanai's, the best view on Maui, and the location of our complex, central to all the wonders of our magical isle... Maui. Please come back with your family. You will be welcome. Aloha
Steve and Mary Anne ( Los Angeles, Ca) We stayed in "Le Penthouse" from Dec 23 to Dec 31st. The pictures on the web do not due justice to the view from this condo. You will not find a better view. We ate every night on the lani at sunset and had coffee in bed every morning watching a whale go by almost everyday. The condo was perfectly clean. It has everything you need for picnics at the beach. The brand new giant big screen is great for movies and tv. You will miss out if you pass up this condo. Thank you so much Paula and Carl for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Owner response: Aloha Mary Anne & Steve, Thank you for your very positive review. Christmas is a very special time on the magical isle... Maui. Not only the lack of snow and cold, but also the mix of Christmas decorations around our complex and around the island with swaying palm trees, 80 degree temperatures, and whales out your window to the west and Haleakal?, the east Maui volcano behind you. "Mele Kalikimaka," which is "Merry Christmas" in Hawaiian. Mahalo.
This was our second time staying at Le Penthouse. Thank you Carl and Paula. The view is spectacular and can be seen from every room.. We never had to use the air conditioner, because we allowed the breeze to flow through the rooms, cooling the entire place. We could hear the waves lapping on shore at night. We did not want to leave. We watched the sunset from either balcony almost every night and then we would go out because the condo's view is better than most of the restaurant views. Next time we will stay longer. The condo has everything one would need. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, glassware and cookware. The condo is close to many beautiful beaches. We especially loved Mekenna Beach, just a few minutes south of Kehei in Wailea. The snorkeling there is fantastic. We saw the same fish as we did at Molokini plus turtles. This condo is very comfortable and spacious. We cannot say enough about the beautiful view. Wifi and dvr are also provided.

Owner response: Aloha Jack & Brenda. Paula and I could not be happier to hear that your second stay in our home on Maui was as good as the first time. When you return for your third stay, there will be a brand new and bigger big screen high definition T.V. And, although we not too long ago refurbished the entire condo, we will soon repaint it again. We want our guests to have the best Maui experience they can get and we want our home on Maui to be part of it. Be well. Mahalo for your review. Carl
The view was fantastic; the condo was spotlessly clean, very quiet, comfortable, and well-equipped. TV and WiFi reception was very good. Our security deposit was returned promptly, and the owner was very helpful when we were making the reservation. The location was great for our needs. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Maui is beautiful
Maui is beautiful
It was our first trip to Maui and enjoyed every minute! The condo was perfect and the views are absolutely breath taking. The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed and very clean. Our son loved the beaches and the Molokini snorkeling trip the most, along with my husband. My favorite part was having our morning coffee on the lanai and watching whales everyday!! We also took the road around the west end of the island and it was beautiful; then another day we drove to Hana and continued back to Kihei. Yes, you can drive the whole island but if I recommend anything go clockwise. We went to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. to have lunch and we all really enjoyed it. We also went to the Maui Ocean Center, but were a little disappointed on the size of the place. I guess we were expecting more for the amount of money we spent to get in. We did most of our grocery shopping at Costco and Safeway. I would recommend this condo to anyone going to Maui, we plan on going back and hope this condo is available.

Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: Aloha. My name is Carl Scheinwald and my wife of 30 years is Paula Roth. I was born and raised in the Fairfax area of Los Angeles and am a long time Los Angeles Dodger fan and Paula was born and raised in the Bronx and we know what baseball team she's a die hard fan of. We met on the Paramount lot in Los Angeles where she was a writer/producer of Laverne and Shirley. She later wrote and produced Happy Days, The Love Boat, Perfect Strangers and much later had a show on in Germany titled Mein Leben & Ich. Me, I've just been a Realtor all my life. But I've loved it and we've made some of our best friends when I've helped them either buy or sell a home. In 2003, we moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. We purchased a lovely, brand new home in the hills of Henderson. We love it here. So much to do and see. But it is hot in the Summer so that's when we do what we love to do, travel. Aloha and Mahalo.
Why the Owner Chose Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea:
Watch the sunrise atop the 10,000-foot Haleakala Crater; Spot a humpback whale on a whale watching excursion; Drive up the scenic, 53-mile Hana highway; Snap a picture of striking Iao Needle in Iao Valley; Spend a day browsing the museums, shops, and restaurants of Lahaina; Golf on Maui. At last count, there were about 14 courses on this little island. Bike on Maui. You can bike everywhere including down the side of Haleakala. Snorkel in the blue Pacific and see the beautiful tropical fish, turtles and coral reefs.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo has the best view on Maui! And the complex is well situated near the little town of Kihei with its good shopping and restaurants. It is also near Wailea with its high end retail shopping and fine restaurants. Speaking of restaurants, not to worry, there is something to eat for everyone. Whether it’s the exquisite meals being served at such restaurants as Roy’s, Seawatch and Mama’s or the more casual food being put forth at Fred’s Mexican Café, Alexander’s Fish and Chips and Maui Tacos, you’ll find you won’t go hungry. When we’re on Maui at our condo, “Le Penthouse” for three or so weeks, we’ll get to many of the fine restaurants on the island. But most of all our condo and complex offers a place to relax and relieve the stress one often brings to Maui.
