BE one of the FIRST to enjoy our GORGEOUS OCEAN VIEW, from our upscale, VERY GREEN, very sound proof, 2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Condo, just a 4 minute walk to the nicest Beach on Maui, Keawakapu! Also check out our newest condo right next door, Annie's Place #509234 Take a nap or read a book looking out on lawn, woods, and ocean as the living room patio doors 12ft x 8ft open a grand 8ft x 8ft onto the lanai and lawn. This is our dream home we have named 'Honu Place', and it will become yours.
The condo is appointed comfortably and tastefully with travertine floor throughout, granite counters in both the kitchen and bathrooms, and local artists work adorn the walls. 'Green' Columbia Cabinets and solid pine doors were used to keep the unit 'off-gas' free, along with other green products to furnish and renovate our condo. New soundmaster windows, soundboard dry wall, and pine extra thick 4 panel interiors doors provide a quiet environment.
KITCHEN: Enjoy cooking on a brand new stainless steel induction range, washing dishes gazing out at the ocean, preparing your vegetables on granite counters with plenty of light, and clean up is so easy with the ultra quiet Bosch dishwasher. You will find just about everything you need whether you want to cook or just go out, as the area is filled with many wonderful restaurants.
LIVING ROOM/ DINING ROOM: Relax on one of the ergonomic chairs listening to the Sony surround sound using your own iPod, play some cards on the Hawaiiana Ratan Dining Set, browse through our DVD library and select a 3D Blu-Ray, look through the many HDTV cable stations, or watch Free Prime Time On Demand to enjoy on the 55' LED LG TV. And any of these activities will feel like you are outdoors, as the new stacking patio doors open up the wall to 8 ft x 8 ft. of outside living among the tropical birds and plants..
MASTER BED ROOM: Fall into our Organic Essentia 100% Latex Memory Foam Mattress with no off-gassing. Google it to learn more. Two extra long twins make a western king, firmly connected and made up with King sheets and bedding, you will be very comfortable. By request the beds can be separated and made up with separate linens as well. Before falling asleep, watch the 42' LED LG TV with HDTV cable, or you can access your Netflix or Hulu accounts, along with access to Youtube, Pandora, and more.
HALF BATHROOM: And during the night, just walk into the half bath in the small master suite rather than leaving the bedroom. We are one of the only two units in Keawakapu that has a 1/2 bathroom which is very convenient.
GUEST BEDROOM / OFFICE Either sit down and put your feet up on the super comfortable Ekornes ergonomic chair or sit at the desk while you take out your laptop to do some work, catch up with email, or print directions to a local restaurant. If you prefer a larger screen, just connect to the 26' Samsung LED HDMI monitor/ TV and Cable. And if you need to make it a bedroom, just open up the Queen Size Organic Essentia (totally Green, no petro chemicals at all) Murphy Bed which is housed in a gorgeous cherry and woven bamboo motiff.
FULL BATH ROOM: When you are in a hurry to make that dinner reservation after beaching it, 2 of you can fit comfortably in our newly designed shower. Grohe shower heads on both sides maximize the efficiency for those who would like to share.
AREA: Keawakapu Beach is very much OLD HAWAII. Rent a kayak or go swimming across the street, or walk to the south along the beach for 3 miles passing a mile of private multi-million dollar homes, then stroll on a path at the ocean cliffs and beaches passing some of the nicest hotels on the island. Walk north to find Kamaole 1 Beach and fronting our building is a nature preserve and the Kihei Boat Launch where boats leave for snorkle tours and more. There are many shops and restaurants in Wailea and Kihei which are literally a few minutes in each direction. This area is also warmer and less rainy than other locations on Maui, and less windy than North Kihei.
There is one flight of stairs to the front door although the lanai is on the ground floor at the lawn.
This is a NO SMOKING building. Sorry we do not have an elevator or a pool.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Rick is in the computer industry, and Susie retired from Health Care Research when our 3rd child was born 21 years ago. Rick enjoys windsurfing, and both of us love walking the beaches, snorkeling, and the nature of Maui. With Rick still working, we can't spend all of our time on Maui, so we will be renting out our place approximately 6-8 months a year. After a total demolition and renovation, we want to share with you an apartment which is clean, mold free, green, and stocked to the fullest for a very comfortable stay!
Why the Owner Chose Keawakapu: We have been traveling to the Hawaiian Islands for 27 years visiting Rick's parents living on Oahu. During this time we always visited the Keawakapu area of Maui, and it became our favorite place in the world. Finally, May 2011, we closed escrow, purchasing our Maui dream home, Honu Place! August 2011 we demolished the entire apartment to its bones. Susie has managed and coordinated the entire project creating a space that we think you will love as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: This is a very unusual condo building for this area. It was built in the 70's to house the contractors building a very large resort up the hill. Only 16 units, twelve 2 bedroom, 2 one bedroom, and 2 studio apartments make up this complex. Because of its small intimate size and woodsy surroundings, it feels very private and secluded.It has a large lawn, woods, and a bamboo grove. The views are lovely with palms, mango, and a sweet ocean view above the trees creates old Hawaiiana. It is quiet, off the beaten path yet just minutes to many stores and restaurants, and the best part, just a 4 minute walk to the nicest beaches on Maui. Rick and I enjoy a walk daily either south, for a 6 mile round trip walk on the beaches, or to the north along the nature preserve and Kamaole Beach Park 1. Often we grab a cup of coffee at the lovely 5 Palms or Sorentos on the beach, or walk to the Four Seasons for one of their fresh fruit smoothies. Other days, we take our snorkels with us for a morning snorkel at Keawakapu or walk to Ulua for variety. Snorkeling is wonderful at these or many other beaches. When the waves are good, a little boogie boarding (supplied in unit) is great fun too. Besides some people who kite and windsurf in Kihei, it is only a 20 minute drive to Kanaha Bay, world renown windsurfing and kiting spot with nearby rentals. In the evening we enjoy the many bars and restaurants with good live music just a couple of minutes away.
