Property description

Kauhale Makai is an exclusive beach front property with incredible ocean views just steps from the sand.

This 5th floor condo is situated perfectly to allow the intoxicating view to be visible even while inside the unit - from the large living room, to the comfy king-size bedroom.

This condo is one of the most spacious one-bedrooms on the island. It has central air-conditioning (uncommon for Maui), ceiling fans throughout, and will comfortably sleep four.

The condo has everything you will need for cooking, grilling, dining or entertaining. The kitchen, bedroom and bathroom are all upgraded, and stocked with quality products and kept to the highest degree of cleanliness.

You'll have the use of wi-fi, telephone, TV with DVD, assigned parking, a concierge desk in the lobby, laundry facilities, and many extras. The condo comes stocked with quality linens, appliances, beach chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie board, binoculars, and many other amenities that will make your packing easy and your stay enjoyable.

The grounds of Kauhale Makai are beautifully landscaped and include gas barbecue grills, putting green, shuffle board, volleyball, hot tub, children’s pool and a great swimming pool which is a popular area to sunbathe and meet fellow travelers from around the world. There are also public tennis courts a short walk along the grounds.

Kauhale Makai is family friendly and very centrally located on the island. This is a great starting place to enjoy all of the activities that Maui has to offer.

This condo has been a very popular rental with travelers for years. If you like the feel of tropical Hawaii, the gentle breeze, the sounds of native birds and lapping waves, the ability to whale watch from your own balcony, and a comfortable place where you can enjoy it all, then this is the vacation rental for you.

Kauhale Makai is centrally located on the island. It is a quick 20 minute drive to the airport, or about 30 minutes up-island to Lahaina or Kaanapali. Grocery shopping and restaurants are abundant and less than a mile away. No matter what your interests are: whale watching, scuba, snorkeling, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, biking, exploring, or just laying by the pool to work on your tan, you will find this location convenient to all.

Inside the condo you will find the Two Palms Properties Welcome Booklet with insider's tips on beaches, restaurants, shopping, activities, sight-seeing and the best happy hour offers on the island! A great tool for a fabulous vacation!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Jolene and Greg have been traveling to Maui for more years than they'd like to admit. Greg grew up surfing, and Jolene, despite an irrational conviction that she's sure to be eaten by a great white, likes to paddle out on a soft-top to practice her version of the sport also. It has been Jolene's dream to have a place on Maui. When the time was right - Jolene hired a realtor, Greg drained his retirement account and in 2013 they bought a place. Now Greg spends his time reminding Jolene that this was her idea! Luckily they bought a very popular rental and it fills up fast. It helps that all our visitors seem to really like the place!

Why the Owner Chose Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea:
We looked at a lot of complexes, but none had that 'tropical island' feel that Kauhale Makai does. The grounds are beautiful and the horizon is nothing but ocean and open space. Even though 'town' is very close, when you're here you don't feel like you're in the middle of it. Also, this unit has been a rental for many years. It is HUGELY popular with travelers. We feel very fortunate to have a vacation rental with so many repeat customers. Even so, we keep trying to make it better!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Views. The views from this unit are the best in the building! Whale watching anyone?
