Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea studio description
You will love this beautiful, directly oceanfront unit on Maui's picturesque south shore. From every angle of this condominium you will be awed by the beauty of the Pacific Ocean, with swaying palms in the foreground and the West Maui mountains as a backdrop. The condominium features a very effective air conditioning system (many Kihei condos do not) for your comfort.
Go for a sunset stroll on the beach, watch the whales from the lanai, wander down to the local shops and restaurants of Kihei, take a refreshing dip in the pool or the warm Pacific ocean, fish on the beach, or sit in the hot tub and gaze at the stars.
Kihei is a wonderful vacation destination on Maui as it boasts very sunny, dry weather, and avoids the frequent rains of the Northern, Western and Eastern parts of the island.
Our building is ideal for a relaxing getaway, a family vacation, or as an action-packed home base from which to enjoy the wealth of attractions and activities that this gorgeous island has to offer.
We have also gone out of our way to try & set the condo up with lots of extras that you will need during your stay, so that you will not have to purchase these items. For example, there are beach chairs,boogie boards, tourist guide books,small & large cooler, &basic kitchen items:spices,oils etc.
SOFA BED FOR SLEEPING FOR UP TO 2 EXTRA GUESTS: The unit is officially listed as having accommodations for 2, but we can have a sofa bed which can sleep an additional 2 people. If you have more than 2 guests in your party, there will be a one time $50 charge. This covers the costs of having the extra linens put in the unit and the extra cleaning and laundry expenses. There is no extra per night charge for the extra guests.
NEWLY RENOVATED and TASTEFULLY DECORATED: We are pleased to offer you tropical finishes with bamboo and rattan furniture with tropical print upholstery. We offer a modern kitchen with flat top stove, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator, under cabinet mount microwave, coffee maker and toaster oven. The bathroom has been repainted and decorated but does feature the original tub/shower combination. It is clean, but showes the scuffs of time ... don't we all! We also offer Complimentary wireless Internet Access in-suite. It is important to us to provide you with a pleasing experience in every way, and this is reflected in the furnishings and decor.
GREAT BUILDING and LOCATION: We cater to couples and families with children, as this best reflects the clientele at our resort. If you are a young adult and want to have a rowdy, spring break type of experience, you will be disappointed with our building. Please look elsewhere. Our building has a very inviting pool and BBQ area, and lots of amenities. Best of all, it is in a great central location-close to all of your likely island destinations.

About the owner: This is my husband and I. We got married on Maui in 2008. This photo shows us on Makena Beach, just after the ceremony. It was magical. Wishing that your Mauidreams also come true!
Why the Owner Chose Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea: Maui has been voted best island by Conde Nast for over 10 years in a row for a reason. It is beautiful, unspoiled, warm, and home to some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. It is a haven for humpback whales, birds, and tropical fish, and boasts world class surfing, windsurfing, kite boarding, snorkeling and deep sea fishing. The lush vegetation, and perfect, sunny weather in Kihei is what attracted us to this side of the island. We selected this particular condo, because it is one of the few directly oceanfront buildings in Kihei, and we did not want a road between us and our ocean view. We also like being in Central Kihei within walking distance of bars, restaurants and shopping, but without the high traffic and activity of South Kihei. We get a kick out of seeing whales breeching in the ocean and coconuts growing, directly from our lanai!
