Menehune Shores condo description

Enjoy sunsets all year round in our two-bedroom, two-bathroom, oceanfront condo with a beach park next door. Gorgeous ocean views are amplified by a mirrored wall. This non-smoking condo is excellent for families or two couples. There is a queen bed in each bedroom and a new queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room with an extra thick mattress, for a maximum occupancy of six. Two full bathrooms are an added convenience. The unit was completely remodeled in 2007, newly furnished at the end of 2009, plus a new sofa bed in 2013. It has free, reliable wi-fi internet access, an in-unit washer/dryer, two televisions and an iPod/iPhone player. The kitchen is fully equipped and all linens are provided, including beach towels.

MENEHUNE SHORES is a peaceful, immaculately tended, oceanfront complex located on the beach in Kihei, a twenty minute drive from the Kahului airport. Shopping, surfing and excursion opportunities are just minutes away. Our third floor lanai overlooks the pool and the ocean, with views to West Maui and the island of Lanai. Our unit does not look out at other condos like many other complexes, just green and blue space. The solar-heated oceanfront pool, barbecue grills, and shuffleboard are located next to a small beachfront park which is perfect for young children. More grills and tables are located on the roof deck which provides a 360-degree view of Molokini Crater, Lanai and Kaho’olawe islands, and Haleakala Volcano. The best views in Kihei! Protected swimming at the King’s Pond Beach is a plus for visitors who want shallow ocean swimming without strong currents or large surf. Humpback whales can often be seen from the condo December through April, and the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary headquarters and lookout is right next door.

We are confident you will enjoy our well-equipped vacation home and the beautiful island of Maui. Aloha!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We are an adventurous family of five from Encinitas, California. We love camping, surfing, skiing, hiking and traveling as much as our work, school schedules, and finances allow.

              Why the Owner Chose Menehune Shores:
              We bought this property when we had an opportunity because of our love of the islands and Maui in particular.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Menehune Shores is ideally located on the north side of Kihei, where it is quiet and more peaceful than in town, yet only a mile from shopping, restaurants and all the activities Kihei offers. It is also convenient to get just about anywhere you want on the island without a long drive, whether it's Wailea/Makena, the North Shore, Lahaina/Ka'anapali, or Kahului and the airport. There is a small, quiet beach adjacent, the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary headquarters next door, then green space and miles of beach to walk beyond that. We love that the unit looks out onto ocean, bay, and green space, not other condos! Plus the beach next door is mellow and kid-friendly.
