Overview

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.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

First, the photos are exactly what you can expect when you arrive. The condo is very nicely decorated, clean and welcoming. My new husband and I felt "at home" immediately! Upon arrival, the office was closed so we couldn't get a parking permit, so we just put our name and unit # on a piece of paper and put it on the dash. Luckily, there is a combination lock on the door so no key is ever needed! We went into the condo and after dropping our bags, walked straight for the patio. Pulling back the curtains revealed an incredible ocean view that I only dreamed of. There is a lovely table with 4 chairs for your dining and wining pleasure. If you open the front door and kitchen window along with the patio door, you will get a gorgeous cross-breeze that all but eliminates the need for a/c. The kitchen was full stocked with every gadget you could want, but for one- no cutting board. In the bedroom, clever storage under both sides of the very comfy king size bed make unpacking a piece of cake. There are lots of hangers, ironing board and iron and extra blankets. The bathroom is roomy and the shower has great water pressure and there are plenty of linens and towels! Having a washer and dryer available was an added plus. Next time, I will bring fewer clothes! Paulette was very nice to work with and promptly handled a small accounting error we encountered early on in our reservation process. You won't regret staying at this lovely place, which is in an outstanding location- close enough to local life, but far enough to be quiet! We are already talking about a return trip for our anniversary! Mahalo Paulette & Terry!

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Azure Bay. Condo is wonderfully decorated and was outfitted with everything we needed for our trip. Bed is very comfortable and the view is amazing. Saw lots of turtles in the fish pond. Had a wonderful time meeting Paulette and Terry at the Kihei Canoe Club. What a unique experience being able to paddle an outrigger with them. Highly recommend it!!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Perfect stay! Fantastic rental and even better host.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! The rental was exactly as advertised (with a more comfortable bed and a better view). Location in Kihei is perfect; close enough to the action, but still very quite.

Paulette’s communication was also amazing. She was very prompt with booking/payment details, clear rental agreement, and instructions for use of the rental.

She would reply to questions very quickly and even installed a safe, for valuables, during our stay when we inquired if something was available. Amazing!!

A+ stay and we will definitely be back, if we are lucky enough to return to beautiful Maui.

Mahalo!!

This was my now husband and my first trip to Hawaii. We were blown away! Everything was so pretty!!!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this unit/property! It felt like a small piece of paradise as we not only enjoyed the inside of our unit but, even more, the breathtaking views from our lanai!!! The breeze we felt every day was amazing!!! We needed little air conditioning! The owner of the unit was very, very nice and our place was beautifully decorated! We had everything we needed and wanted! The location was perfect as well as it was central to a ton of restaurants as well as being only a short distance to the airport or any other of our desired destinations! We would highly recommend this unit/property to anyone!

Come to Maui- Rent a car & stay no where else other than Azure Bay

  • 5 of 5

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
