Menehune Shores condo description

Do you really want an OCEANFRONT view? This unit at Menehune Shores is only a few feet from the water and has a DIRECT VIEW that is totally private. Some units are listed as oceanfront, however they have side views, looking at lots of grass, trees, and a distant view to the ocean. IF the view is as important to you, as it is to me, this is the place for you! You can view my website below, to really get a feel for what an OCEANFRONT unit should be! IF this is booked, we also have a penthouse (top floor) oceanfront one bedroom in the same building. See on website.
Aug 2013, this unit just had a brand new bathroom remodel, for over $10,000. Beautiful tub/shower, with glass tile decos, granite counter with under-mounted sink, and LED lights, you can leave on when you retire, and have a nice night light.
Menehune Shores is a tropical oasis, with beautiful oceanfront grounds to roam. This is a romantic one bedroom oceanfront Kihei Maui condo for 2 persons, all remodeled and only 35 feet from the water's edge. We have a private lanai at this accommodation, with teak dining table a chaise lounge; incredible 180 degree view of great surf, brilliant sunsets, turtles, whales in season, rainbows; this is definitely a unit for someone who wants to be close to the ocean.
Sitting directly on the beach, only 3 miles from Wailea, and 9 miles from the airport, you have a great location with lots of beaches, golf courses, shops, restaurants, snorkel, surfing, fishing, farmer's markets, and activities nearby.

                        This condo was even better than we anticipated, the view is even more stunning than in the photos and the location was ideal for exploring the island of Maui. We absolutely adored our "home base" at Meneheune Shores, a little piece if paradise for these Québécois :)

                        We walked into the Condo and the view took our breath away. Exactly how it was described. It was wonderful sitting on the deck and counting how many whales, we can see. The owners personal touches and comfortable furniture made the condo all that much nicer. They have thought of everything that you might need even down to a crock pot, cooler, beach chairs etc. The unit was very clean and well maintained, and that speaks volumes that the owner cares. I would not hesitate to recommend renting this condo, and will be telling our friends and family. The owners are personable, fair, and prompt in any correspondence you will have. Many thanks,for sharing your home, and look forward to a return visit

                        At the outset, Gayle was professional, timely and very helpful responding to us. This was our first VRBO experience and we were very grateful to Gayle in providing us such an excellent place to stay for our two week vacation. The listing was as described and the view from the lanai was incredible. Breakfast every morning on the lanai accompanied by humpback whales visible in the back ground, we loved it! Having a ocean front view was the highlight, just breathtaking! The condo provided all the amenities needed to make the condo feel like home. The condo was clean and organized as pictured and described. Menehune Shores is very well managed and maintained, very clean and the grounds are meticulously maintained, it is absolutely beautiful, lush and green. We also enjoyed the natural ventilation of the Hawaiian breeze keeping the condo very comfortable, and much better than having to use air conditioning. Gayle provided a list of her favourite things to do while on the island, and we had fun "ticking" off her list. The restaurants, shopping, fruit stands, and farmer's markets in the area were so much fun to visit, plus exploring the island and whale watching were highlights. There are plenty of great places to eat in the area and the food stores such as Safeway are close by. All necessities are close by. We will return someday to Menehune Shores and would highly recommend to our friends and relatives, we can hardly wait!

                        We stayed in Gayle's condo for two weeks and it was perfect! There is nothing I could say to describe the view except unbelivable. We were there to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and had a wonderful time. The condo is very cozy and romantic. The best part about it (other than the view) is that Gayle provides you with all your beach supplies, from a CD for the road to Hanna to snorkeling gear, we had everything we needed and more! The location of the condo is convenient. There are lots of great eats, nice beaches, and reasonable prices. If you want to go to Old Lahaina and Front St is 30 min away. We do reccomend you rent a car to get around. Gayle was very helpful and prompt in answering all our questions. We definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great time in Maui.

                        My husband and I had the most relaxing vacation at this beautiful condo in Kihei. The area is quiet but close to everything, and the view from this unit is a 10; the most incredible I.ve had the pleasure of enjoying. There is no a/c but really, if you want to enjoy the ocean breezes, hear the surf, and feel like you are in Hawaii, who would want to shut those floor to ceiling doors anyway. Ceilng fans are in every room! We swam at the property, there are some sea turtles right out front, but we also explored the many great beaches along the Kihei-Wailea coast. One day we did drive to Lahaina, but it is very crowded, definitely worth a one day trip though. Farmer's Markets are all around, we love the BIG swap meet on Sat mornings (go early it opens at 7 am) over in Kahalui at the community college. It's great for gifts to bring home for friends and family. Gayle lists it on her fun things to do, which we used daily for ideas. There are also a lot of books in the condo with activities and attractions. Down by the office, where you get your free parking pass, there is a brochure on all local activities. The unit is as beautiful as the pictures, and there is absolutely everything you need for a great vacation..........unit and grounds were very clean and well taken care of. You can tell the owner cares about this place. When we return to Maui, this is the first place we will check on for availability.

                        We were instantly pleased when we opened the door and saw the most amazing view! The second you walk through the door all you can see is OCEAN! Is is absolutely breathtaking. The kitchen was very nice as well. The cooking utensils are plentiful, and all of our desired spices were in the cabinets. We found ourselves cooking often because we wanted to enjoy our beautiful view. The only downside to the condo was the bathroom, but we were told that that is going to be renovated next month.

                        My wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to spend 15 days in the Maui to celebrate both her 40th birthday and our 20th anniversary. We absolutely loved our stay at Gayle's condo. Staying here isn't like staying at a hotel. It's like staying in someone's home that they have lent out to you and so after a day or two it feels very much like a home away from home. It also seems like the majority of other suites are occupied by permanent residents so the building tended to be very quiet and peaceful because there weren't many vacationers (like us) coming and going. All of the residents we met were friendly and gracious and welcomed us to Maui. One of the best features of this condo is the spectacular view of the ocean. You could literally throw a rock off the balcony and have it land in the water. This made for a feeling of being at the beach even when relaxing at the condo (eg, watching free Netflix which is a nice touch) and being on the 4th floor meant we could keep the glass doors and drapes open at all times of the day with no sacrifice to privacy. Nobody can look in from the ocean side. We also really liked that the beach by the property isn't one of the "hot spot" beaches of Maui as it was almost completely deserted all day long and made for great romantic walks or for just a nice relaxing time on the beach. When we wanted to go to the hot spots we could drive down the road but it was nice to have our own quiet escape when we wanted it. You can snorkel in the water by the condo but there isn't a reef right there so better snorkeling can be had at other beaches. Although, sea turtles have been spotted swimming in the little lagoon out front and I also saw several eels and other tropical fish in the rocks. I have to say that Gayle is a great manager of her property. She is very fast with communication and often answers questions within a few minutes. She is gracious and understanding and I would have no problems staying here again or recommending the property to friends and family. If you're looking for the ultimate in posh, luxury accommodations, this condo isn't for you. However, if you want a comfy cozy, down home feeling place to kick up your feet during or after a long day of adventure, this is your place.

                        Not only is the view outstanding but the inside of the condo is totally redone. The owners were just the best you could ask for. We had every amenity you could ask for. Its extremely comfortable and stylish. We went to 2 restaurants for happy hour and realized the view here was so much nicer. We ended up cooking and staying in. What an amazing view to have coffee in the morning. Thank you so much Gayle for your hospitality. We will definitely be back!

                        We've stayed in many VRBO's and this is one of the best. Great condition, amenities, and the owner provided many nice touches as a list of what to do, best places to eat, etc. Had many book on the area and even the Hana road CD to listen to while you were driving the Hana Road. When making the reservation over the internet, you could tell that the owner was interested and not just going through the motions. We would definitely recommend the condo and we'd go back.

                        We just returned from a wonderful week's stay at this unit and it couldn't have been any better! The owner (Gayle) was extremely helpful from the initial contact to the date of arrival and everything was exactly as represented. The views are magnificent and the privacy is awesome! Everything that you need is right there. We were particularly pleased with the rooftop and poolside grilling set ups for the community - made it very fun and easy to enjoy a home meal after a busy day touring. The Netflix availability on the tv was also a bonus that we enjoyed after many dinners. The location seemed perfect as well being very central to all of the island activities. It's a nice residential community area, easy for runs or walks and handy to many fine beaches (especially south). The highlights for us were; private kayak tour with Hawaiin Paddle Sports, drive to Hana, drive up and hiking down into summit crater of Haleakala, drive to La Perouse bay and walk in along lava rock trails to our own deserted beach! A truly memorable vacation place and home away from home! We certainly hope to return!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We have been married 40+ years and have had a place in Kona for many years. Loving the ocean, we decided it would be great to go from the high surf of Kona (VRBO 6909) with all the lava rock, to the quiet sandy beaches of Maui. Kihei is a perfect spot, looking out to Molokini and Lanai, watching whales in winter, and enjoying the sunsets. We'd love to share our place with you. For those wanting a month in Southern California, check out our VRBO 375793 in Oceanside.

                      Why the Owner Chose Menehune Shores:
                      Menehune Shores was built in the 70's, when they allowed building close to the water. So many places are far back, or across roads, but not this one! We feel at home with nature when visiting here. Very close to shopping, airport, art galleries, farmer's markets, just very convenient.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Whale watching up close and personal from the private lanai (winter). Long walks on the sandy beaches, right from the property. Swimming on site as well! Watching windsurfers from the lanai. Peaceful,relaxing, private atmosphere.
