Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much again to Patricia and Jefferson, for our wonderful stay in the newly remodeled Little Grass Shack! It is indeed an Ocean View Penthouse that is so comfortable and affordable in Kihei. This is our 4th stay here since 2012 and the updates are fantastic. The new look is very fresh and modern, but the condo still feels very inviting and has that little grass shack feel....still comfortable and clean with all the comforts of home.Thank you for your welcoming touches of fresh flowers and gift basket upon arrival, it feels like we've come back to our home away from home. We love the corner unit, with the tradewind breezes coming through, even in August we've never used the AC. The lanai is perfect from sunrise and a morning coffee and listening to the birds sing, to afternoon happy hour, very quiet and private and a little oasis from the sun when needed. It's just the right combination of ocean view and you can also see the morning mist upcountry on the slopes of Haleakala! The beach at Kamaole II is a two minute walk away, fantastic for swimming, snorkeling and lots of sunshine and fun in the sand. Also lots of shopping, and great restaurants within easy walking distance. Although we rented a car and ventured Upcountry to Surfing Goat Dairy and the Lavender Farm and up past Lahaina and Kapalui to Honolua Bay and enjoyed different areas of Maui, our favourite beach is still Kamaole II. As always, for me, one of the highlights of my vacation is seeing the turtles, either snorkelling, or swimming and this year we tried stand up paddle boarding and went to Turtle Town...amazing!! The condo is fully stocked with everything you need to feel right at home, from the kitchen, bathroom, and super comfy king size bed and all the beach gear you might need.We love to cook and mostly eat in, and the updates to the kitchen are fantastic! Lots of cupboard space and countertops, and modern lighting and flooring all make it so user friendly and comfortable. We love Jefferson's artwork, it's so whimsical and quirky!! And it's a bonus that Patricia is just a phone call away for any questions about the local activities....we love the luau at the Grand Wailea, it's one of our favourites! Maui is truly magical and we just can't say enough how much we enjoy our time in Kihei, we love the sun and beach and the aloha spirit and staying in the Ocean View Penthouse aka the Little Grass Shack makes it perfect!! Mahalo Patricia and Jefferson and hope to see you next year.

Amazing Condo Steps from the Beach

Thanks so much again to Patricia and Jefferson,

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo is 200 meters away from the Kamaole beach II, also closes to stores and restaurants.

The king size bet is good for us and our 4 yeras old son. Like other guests mentioned the condo has kitchen stuff for cooking , and all stuff for enjoying the beach.

Site office maneger answered all our queations,gave us lots of useful travel information.The owner Patricia responded to our request very quickly. She allowed us to stay late on our last day.(normal check out is 11am, our flight was 11PM, we left the condo at 8:30pm).

All in all , it's a good place to stay! Thanks Patricia and your husband!

Friend to Maui,

  • 5 of 5

Simply the BEST...Close to the safe Lifeguard Beaches, excellent restaurants, best beach food tacos, and scenic beauty abound. While reading a book on the lanai listening to the sound of the waves and watching the snorkel boats pass naps come rather easily. We consider this our "Hula Home" and after over a decade of visiting we will continue to call this our "Hula Home." The onsite manager Debbie welcomes you with the true Aloha Spirit her welcome package is total and complete with her Smile.

Great Kihei Kai Nani condo

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at a couple different rooms in Kihei Kai Nani, and this one is now my favorite. It's right across from the pool, and just a quick walk to Kam II. It even has a small ocean view.

The room was well stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, snorkel gear and a nice beach umbrella.

The bed was enough for both my pregnant wife and me to sleep comfortably. Although there is no AC in the bedroom (I think that's a rule by Kihei Kai Nani), there were 3 fans that were available to use and the corner cross breeze kept the room cool. (I should add that there is AC in the living room).

The kitchen had all the basics that were needed for our entire 2 week stay.

Patricia was gracious and responsive to any needs we had. We will definitely try to book this condo again.

Lovely South Kihei Condo

  • 5 of 5

The Kihei Kai Nani condo is centrally located in South Kihei. It is a short walk to the beach (Kamaole II), and is bright and airy, and well laid out. We found the condo to be very well-equipped and included such items as beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. The bed and pillows were really comfortable and the nighttime breeze through the open windows was wonderful. The complex has a large pool and the water temperature was perfect for afternoon swims after a day of hiking or snorkeling, and late evening dips. We really appreciated Patricia's added touches with flowers in every room and a gift basket upon arrival.

Love this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo and will be back again for the seventh time next year! It may not be fancy but it has everything you will need for your vacation and the location is great for those who want the beach and proximity to shopping and restaurants. We have never used the AC as the trade winds blow nicely through this corner units windows. The lanai has a really good view of Haleakala and a partial view of the ocean which is enough to see if it is a good day to snorkel. We keep the binoculars handy and often see whales from there. Thanks so much Patricia and Jefferson. We look forward to next year!
