About the property

'E komo mai, nou ka hale' is a traditional Hawaiian greeting meaning 'Welcome, our house is yours'. Welcome to Hale Makani Aloha, a gorgeous 1 bedroom and 1 bath condo located conveniently just steps away from the longest stretch of sandy beach on the Island of Maui. Given our excellent location in the heart of Maui, you will enjoy convenient access to all of the island’s must-see beaches, shopping, recreation and activities. Living in this wonderful condo you will enjoy the beautiful bamboo flooring, contemporary island design, a well equipped kitchen and living room with AC and a bedroom with a new luxurious bed and another AC unit. Enjoy the soft Maui breezes on the lanai that overlooks the beautiful landscaped grounds, pool and BBQ’s. Awake each morning to a soothing symphony of birds including an island favorite – the Zebra Dove. Free off-street parking is available directly behind the building.

Hale Makani Aloha is situated right in the center of the Island on the outskirts of Kihei. Just a quick 10 mile drive south of the Maui Airport will have you at the ocean's doorstep in no time flat. Being centrally located allows quick and easy access to other parts of the Island including Wailea, Maalaea Harbor, Lahaina and Kaanapali and the wonderful town of Paia and the breathtaking drive to Hana. Maui is blessed to have some of the best restaurants, shopping and art studios as well as the best recreational opportunities including snorkeling, surfing, standup paddling, hiking and golfing for both beginners and experts alike. Take a snorkel adventure out to Molokini Crater, a 3 hour bike ride down to the bottom of a dormant volcano - Mount Haleakala. Take a helicopter ride over the island and witness some of the tallest and most majestic waterfalls in the world or make your way to the town of Hana and stop along the way to take in the beautiful views and the banana bread.

Kihei is without a doubt one of the best places on the island to vacation. It is a top destination for visitors who want to spend time on Maui without breaking the bank. Kihei is the sunny side of Maui with the best weather year-round and some of the most beautiful beaches on Maui.

About Jim and Pamela Babbage

Jim is a Commercial Banker and Pamela is a Wedding and Event Floral Business Owner whose primary residence is in the North Tustin area of Orange County, CA. They have two beautiful grown daughters and love Maui, standup paddling, surfing and snorkeling.

Jim and Pamela Babbage purchased this condo in 2017

Why Jim and Pamela Babbage chose Kihei

We fell in love with Maui on our first visit in 2013. As we became acquainted with the island and the various places to surf, snorkel, hike, dine, shop and explore and the accessibility of each of these places, we determined that the central location of Kihei was the most optimal. We love the quiet, quaint town of Kihei and all that it has to offer and we love the central location that makes getting to our other favorite locations so much easier. After returning several times a year we were blessed with the opportunity to purchase a little home here in the summer of 2017. Although we come as often as we can, it is a blessing to be able to share our home with you - our friends and our family. Our home on Maui is a beautiful refuge, a peaceful place to reset, recharge and be refreshed.

What makes this condo unique

The Condo is located in Wailana Sands which is a small, quiet complex of only 10 units with easy access, easy parking and beautiful landscaping, swimming pool and BBQ's. With the beach just steps away, a spontaneous mad dash into the refreshing ocean is always an option.

A great time in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here on our 30th wedding anniversary. We had a great time. The condo is in a great location in the middle of great little restaurants , all our excursions, and of course 1/2 block to the beach. The grounds were quiet and the pool was very inviting after a day at the beach. We will definitely stay there again and hope to make it every year.

Beautiful quiet location, clean charming Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and was stocked with alot of extras. It was a short walk to beach and the sunsets were beautiful. We enjoyed the short walk to the Fruit Market in the mornings. The grounds were well maintained and the pool was very nice. It was what we were looking and soon felt right at home there. It was great working with the Home Owners who met our every expectation. If you want that high end luxury spa type accommodation this may not be for you, however if you want a great place to stay to enjoy Maui, this would be the place. We would recommend staying here and hopefully maybe someday return to what we began to feel like our little Maui home away from home. Blessings

Great little place

  • 4 of 5

Loved this place. They had everything we needed from beach towels to beach bags and beach chairs , boogie boards and coolers. Quiet, quaint little place with the sound of birds and rooster crows to wake you up every morning. We will definitely stay here again. The food trucks here are amazing, definitely my favorite dinners on the island.

Very Clean, great location, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and the condo was a perfect location. Literally you can walk to the beach across the street and 5-10 mins from lovely beaches along Kihei. 20 mins from Wailea, Makena/Big beach. 30mins from Lahaina. Lots of local eats and grocery stores along the way. The condo was very clean, felt like a real home, and was equipped with everything with WiFi, cable, full kitchen for cooking meals, beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel sets, beach bags, and cooler. The AC at night was definitely a bonus and worked well, we actually had to turn it off because it was too cold. Quiet area and always a parking spot available. We didn’t use the pool because we were at the beach the whole time, but the pool was pristine. Definitely will stay again when we come back. My daughter said it this was on Yelp!, she would give a 5 (gotta love yelpers) Thanks so much for everything, Jim and Pam

This condo has been recently repainted, redecorated and freshened up with a Hawaiian Boho vibe. Also a new Sealy Posturepedic queen bed in the bedroom and a fold out bed in the living room.
