"I have vacationed in Kihei many times, mostly in South Kihei, close to Wailea. That was before I found this lovely vacation rental at Menehune shores! The properties where I've stayed in the past have become price-prohibitive for me, but I really, really, really want an ocean front vacation, 'on the beach.' This is the one!
Lisa's condo is clean, cute and very well-maintained, with updated kitchen and bathroom. The unit is stocked with towels, linens, beach chairs, and kitchen supplies. How great not to have to pack or purchase beach towels! A great PLUS is the in-unit washer and dryer. This allowed us to PACK less, wash clothes as needed, and save ROOM in our bags to bring home treasures from the local markets and craft fairs. Go up on the roof for great viewing of sunrise over Haleakala or the wonderful Hawaii sunsets. Save money by stocking the fridge with local bakery items and heavenly fruit for breakfast, and using the kitchen or the rooftop grilling facilities. Do not overlook the Indian restaurant downstairs! They will graciously help you choose something wonderful if you aren't familiar! The Kihei area has some great restaurants and food trucks. Use the unit's wireless access and search your smart phone/device for "best pizza (shrimp, fresh fish, vegan, whatever you want) in Kihei."
If you are looking for a conveniently located, relaxing, quiet retreat, this is it! Great for relaxing on the beach, on the grass, at the pool or on the lanai! Lisa, the owner, was prompt, helpful and professional to work with! As a flight attendant, she has learned how to make guests comfortable, and this is very apparent in the way she operates her vacation rental. I hope to come back during whale season next year!"
