My beautiful condominium is located in South Maui, on the Wailea/Kihei border. The area is populated with beautiful luxury resorts, shopping, restaurants, golf and beaches. My condominium is directly across from the popular Kamaole III Beach and State Park. swimming, snorkeling, surfing and wave riding are excellent here; this park is also THE place to watch sunset - a festive atmosphere enjoyed by locals and guest to Maui alike: kites, frisbees, footballs, dogs, Mai Tai's with the spectacular, crystal blue Pacific as a backdrop!
My unit is located in a 23 acre complex which is low-rise and low-density with extensive lawns and tropical landscaping in its dramatic hillside setting. My smoke-free condo is located in the most desirable oceanview 'A' building of the Maui Kamaole Condominium complex. There are no buildings or obstructions in front of my condominium, assuring you of stunning and UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN VIEWS, sunsets, stargazing and whale watching from the privacy of your own lanai.
The unit is a very spacious 900 square feet on the ground floor (no stairs to navigate, so handicap and wheelchair accessible). It is a very sunny, modern, comfortable and very well equipped unit. Being a New York City interior designer, I've selected the furniture, art and finishes to reflect an island serenity and theme without resorting to the tacky cliche` of tropical pastels prints found in so many hawaii rentals. This condominium was remodeled in 2015 - stone floors throughout (extending to the ocean view and Haleakala view lanais as well); the kitchen has new stainless steel appliances including a French door refrigerator with freezer drawer, maple cabinetry, granite counters, cookware and dishes; two sumptuous custom baths with marble showers (both large enough for two - hint!hint!), undermount basins, imported light fixtures, bamboo hardware and uber-luxurious Ralph Lauren bath linens.
The bedroom is large with a new king-size, pillow-top bed outfitted with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, a sumptuous 100% down comforter outfitted in a high thread count duvet, an en suite master bathroom with dual sink vanity & walk-in shower, two large closets, Indonesian teak and bamboo furniture and an enclosed lanai !! The living room / dining area has an open, airy feeling decorated with earth-toned upholstery, teak and koa wood accents, a wool Safavieh area rug, an antique Chinese wedding cabinet houses the entertainment system (stereo with CD & AM/FM, Bose iPod sound doc and 50-inch, flat-screen color TV), bamboo wall coverings and original artwork (from Hawaiian artists) all blend harmoniously with the unimpeded ocean view from the 22 foot-plus expanse of glass composed of new, insulated and soundproof, double sliding doors.
This is not a standard rental condominium. It is a chic and comfortable island home. In fact, I use this as my Maui residence three to four months annually. I limit my rentals to a MAX of two adults and children over 14 who will care for my property, and enjoy it as much as I do. It is the perfect place for the extended, comfortable, romantic stay on Maui. I welcome honeymooning or anniversary couples (champagne gift baskets and in room couples massages can be arranged in advance for an additional charge). Additionally, I enthusiastically welcome seniors, singles and gay travellers.
Amenities at the condominium complex include multiple tennis courts, two swimming pools (one with a waterfall), two hot tubs, poolside gazebos with eating areas and gas barbecues for guest use. Excellent shopping at the Shops at Wailea - numerous art galleries and clothing stores as well as Tiffany's, Gucci, Versace, Louis Vuitton & Prada. Area restaurants include: Spago at The Four Seasons Resort, Morimoto at the Andaz Resort, Sarrento's on the Beach, Capische at the Hotel Wailea, Sansei Sushi, The Five Palms, Gannon's, Cafe O'Lei, Matteo's, Monkeypod Kitchen, Bistro Meme and others. For you golf enthusiast, there are five championship golf courses are located within a two mile radius. AND, the best for last: the best beaches on all of Maui are only minutes away on foot, by bike or car ( Keawakapu, Kamaole I, II & III, Elua - these five are all walking distance - Wialea, Polo and Makenna Beaches all have public parking and are less than 5-10 minute drive away). The historic whaling town of Lahaina & world famous Ka'anapalii Beach are 24 miles (45 minutes)away; horseback riding at Makenna stables is 9 miles away (20 minutes); the Maui Ocean Center & Aquarium at Ma'alea Harbor is 10 miles away (20 minutes). Additionally, necessities such as grocery stores (Safeway, Foodland and the Star Market), pharmacies, dry cleaners, gyms, hair/nail salons, the post office, gift shopping, etc. are all a stone's throw from my unit.
Make your Maui vacation the BEST it can be by choosing the BEST condo on Maui!!! ALSO: I am in touch with the owners of the units next door to mine (both 1 BR/2 bath ocean view units)and often they have similar availability, so please ask if you need more room to accomodate your group!! Finally, my on-island Estate Manager is happy to stock your fridge with coffee, fruit, etc prior your arrival (additional charge).
ADDITIONAL AMENITIES IN MY UNIT INCLUDE SNORKLE MASK AND FINS IN ASSORTED SIZES, TOMMY BAHAMA BEACH CHAIRS, RALPH LAUREN BEACH TOWELS, BEACH UMBRELLAS, BEACH BAGS, PICINIC BASKET with THERMOS & OUTDOOR BLANKETS (TO MAKE YOUR HALEAKALA @ SUNRISE TRIP BETTER - BRRRR!), COOLERS IN ASSORTED SIZES, WOODEN HANGERS IN ALL CLOSETS & A BOSE iPOD DOC (SO YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN TUNES)!
