Menehune Shores condo description

Our second home, is on the 5th floor (505) facing north-west toward the sea and is truly Ocean-Side, not just “Ocean View”. 120 steps and you are in the pool or the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Not down the street or across the parking lot.

Price Quotation: The VRBO 'Instant Quote' is generated automatically by the site so please complete the info requested there and allow us to provide you with a custom quote for your particular needs.

Bring your binoculars so you can watch Humpback Whales in season, easily keep an eye on the kids at the pool or sheltered beach. Enjoy the gorgeous Maui sunset every evening....All right from our lanai (porch).

65 to 85: Why was this location chosen by the Royals of old Maui as their home? Perfect weather. Our high and low temperatures are almost always 65 degrees and 85 degrees - year around.

North Kihei is on the sheltered dry side of Maui, close to the airport and all of the amenities that Maui has to offer. Why waste your valuable vacation time driving??? We are 25 min. from the airport, not 90 like other locations on Maui.

Ma’alaea harbor is 5 min away and features a full range of activities including snorkeling, dinner cruises and whale watching. It also features The Maui Ocean Center (aquarium) and some of the best restaurants in Hawaii. Shopping and sports activities to suit any taste are right here for you as well.

Some of Hawaii’s best beaches and snorkeling areas are just south of us and if you love the high surf, the fabulous north shore is about 30 min away. Night life in Laheina and Ka’anapali is also available.

We offer a fully updated condominium with all of the features you expect. The park-like grounds feature a heated pool, sheltered ocean swimming, restaurant, roof area with BBQ, whale watching and gorgeous sunsets, off-street parking and walking access to great beaches.

Please E-mail us even if our condo is reserved when you need it or if you need more then one condo for that wedding, golf outing or family reunion. We work with several other VRBO owners here and will help you make your visit to Maui a success.

We employ an on-call local professional management company (Maui Menehune Aloha LLC) who is available if there are any issues with the condo. We want to be sure that every minuet you spend in paradise is spent on your terms. (Link below)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: We are from the Midwest have grown children. We have owned this unit since 1999 and have completely renovated it. We enjoy using it when it isn't rented and usually get over to Maui twice a year to make little additions and insure it is ready for your stay. We hope that you will enjoy our second home as much as we do. The website linked below includes a few of the comments our previous guests have left and a photo of our family. Mahalo (thank-you) for looking.

              Why the Owner Chose Menehune Shores:
              Maui is one of the best places to vacation in the world and this area is one of the best on Maui. It is quiet, dry and close to everything. Winter or summer the temperature is almost always between 65 and 85F. The Ancient Hawaiian Royals chose this part of the island to live and built the fish pond that is still there today in front of Menehune Shores. Menehune is unique in that it is right on the water. 150 steps from our unit to the Pacific. No streets or parking lots to cross so you can send the kids to the pool and watch them from your lanai. Our unit faces west and north so we have the sunset view and the cool shade while overlooking the pool, the ocean and the park-like grounds. Our 5th floor vantage point allows us to whale watch right from our lanai so bring your binoculars.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We have many friends here and the complex is staffed by an excellent on-site team that can take care of any issues that arise. (Mauimenehunealoha dot com) That applies to both owners and guests. This extra advantage provides you with the peace of mind that your stay will not be interrupted by issues that are not addressed immediately. For first-time condo guests, this is especially important. Our unit has everything we need to entertain guests and we visit frequently to insure it is all in tip-top shape. HDTV, WIFI and DVD players are provided.
