Aloha … let us extend our warm Hawaiian to you and welcome you to our home away from home. Located on the charming and convenient town of Kihei on the Valley Isle of Maui, our beautiful two bedrooms – two baths ocean front condominium sits about 200 yards from the beach. Situated on the front side of the condominium complex where one can enjoy panoramic views of the beach, ocean, and the hills of Maalea. After a fun day exploring the island, come back to the condo where you can relax and sit on one of the two lanais, sip a tall cool glass of passion-guava juice, sample fresh tropical fruits (from our welcome basket), and, when the season is right, watch humpback whales frolicking in the ocean. The condo is equipped with all amenities one would want or expect from a well-equipped home. All comforts of home are at your disposal. Comfortable queen size bed with plush bedding in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second bedroom, a clean bathtub and a walk-in shower, well-stocked kitchen (including pots and pans, cutlery, tableware, coffee maker, rice cooker, juicer), central AC for warm days, state of the art video-audio equipment, free WiFi, and free local telephone calls. All you have to bring is tropical clothing (bring a jacket for the predawn trek to Haleakala!), sunscreen, camera, flip flops and, the spirit of Aloha. Being in Kihei means you are close to everything; the airport is only 20 minutes away, Wailea is just ‘nextdoor’, Lahaina is only half an hour of leisurely driving. Our condo is within walking distance to shops and great restaurants and yet you are close to all of the major beaches for snorkeling, swimming, windsurfing, paddle surfing, etc. Like elsewhere on the island, Kihei’s lifestyle is laid back with friendly people. All you need to remember is to smile and say “Aloha” and “Mahalo” (thank you). Simply put, Kihei is da best location in Maui.

About the owner: I moved to United States in 1986, married my childhood friend and have 2 older children.
Owning a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom front row condo at Kauhale Makai had been a dream come true for my husband and I ever since we purchased our first 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom condo there.
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, with their ALOHA spirit, 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 frolicking 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.
