About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath condo right on the beach with 180 degree ocean views

“E komo mai” (Welcome) to beautiful Azure Bay, on Maui’s sunny shore of Kihei. Located in the oceanfront complex Menehune Shores, it is steps to the beach. Here you will find oceanfront luxury in a gorgeously designed and professionally decorated condo. The unobstructed 180 degree views of Ma’alaea Bay are perfect for whale watching or enjoying a sunset cocktail on the lanai. Menehune Shores is in North Kihei, centrally located in one of South Maui's most popular destinations. Its prime location offers convenient access to shopping, beaches, restaurants, activities, beautiful Wailea and historic Lahaina.

Luxury is THE key word for this unit, as every detail has been meticulously thought of to enhance your experience here in paradise. From the moment you open the front door and feel as though you are hovering over the Pacific Ocean to the high end linens, we have anticipated your every need. The constant cross-breeze through the unit keeps it very cool and quite nice throughout the day, although there is air conditioning to your comfort.

Our guests tell us that our kitchen is stocked better than theirs at home, which pleases us! We have provided quality cookware, dinnerware and drinkware, and all the little touches to make your stay relaxing. If you want to prepare meals you’ll have what you need. Kihei has wonderful and diverse restaurants, including a fabulous Indian restaurant right on the property so it’s up to you whether you venture out or stay in.

Adjacent to the resort is the visitors center for the whale sanctuary, created by Congress in 1992 to protect humpback whales and their habitat in Hawaii. The sanctuary, which consists of the shallow waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands, constitutes one of the world’s most important humpback whale habitats. The visitors center offers an excellent opportunity to learn about marine life conservation. We feel privileged to have this visitor’s center right next door.

In front of the sanctuary and the entire complex is the historic Ko’ie’ie Fish Pond, also known as The King’s Fish Pond, dating back to the 1500’s. According to local legend it was built by the Menehunes, known for their strength and ability, and said to have built the pond in just one evening. The adjacent beach, Kalepolepo, is loved by locals and visitors for its safe and shallow gentle surf, ideal for children and those who enjoy the calmness.

As you enter the complex, there is ample complimentary parking. Majestic palms, lush tropical foliage lead you to a beach-front swimming pool with large sundeck. An on-site restaurant and lounge are conveniently located on the first floor, a popular place for sunset dining. There is a roof top area with a full kitchen and barbeques, an ideal spot for weddings, reunions, or your party. And the good news…as our guest there is no added fee for using this rooftop facility. Just reserve the space and enjoy your 180-degree ocean views.

In the true Aloha spirit, we welcome your visit with us. Our home is your home and we are here to help you have your time in Maui be the vacation of a lifetime.

Paulette Scheffer purchased this condo in 2016

Why Paulette Scheffer chose Kihei

We wanted to invest in Maui and create an exceptional vacation experience for our guests. This property with it's magnificent location and views was the perfect fit. We lovingly gutted and remodeled the condo to create a luxurious accommodation that we hope you will enjoy each time to come to Maui.

What makes this condo unique

This unit has 180 degree views of what is locally known as the "whale nursery." Ma'alaea Bay is where whales birth their young so you can expect to see whales frolicking in the ocean right from the lanai during whale season (November - May). You may also see turtles enter the ancient fish pond that is directly in front of the unit.

A small jewel ! Perfectly located if you dont want the hustle and bustle of the Kaanapali side this is the place to stay.

The owners have meticulously worked on the condo. You will not need anything.

Everything is world class quality and best options to avoid disturbance .

We just loved the place .

Thank you

Picture perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous condo! Amazing ocean view and sounds of the waves 24/7! Condo had everything we could need for our week there. The beach was steps away and perfect for our toddler! I also have so much appreciation for Paulette (owner) who was so responsive and accommodating!! I’ll recommend this condo to friends and family looking for Maui lodging.

Beautiful view, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Azure bay has not missed a single detail. It is clean, beautifully decorated, quiet and comfortable. We loved our stay here. We can’t wait to visit again. We finished our trip (company trip) at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua and my husband and I looked back at Azure Bay fondly and wished we could have stayed the whole week there! Great location, great amenities, great views, and so many little details provided to make it an enjoyable and stress free vacation.

A beachy beauty

  • 5 of 5

Paulette has thought of everything here. Gorgeous decorating in aqua but the show stopper is the location. The Hawaiian fishpond makes a perfect warm and shallow lagoon, safe for kids, no waves, complete with a few endangered green turtles. Best condo we’ve ever stayed in on Maui.

Amazing vacation in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Paulette and our stay at Azure Bay. Every detail was thought of and thoughtful. The condo is immaculate, beautifully decorated and has every comfort you can think of. The view from the Lanai is second to none but it was the special touches that made the most difference. We definitely would recommend Azure Bay to anyone wanting a dream vacation in a perfect location with all the luxury you could ask for. We will be back!!
