This condo has magnificent views from both the living room and the bedroom. We watched the sunset on the lanai (balcony) and had dinner outside almost every night and every morning. There is a beach right in front of the condo and 5 bbq grills with tiki torches. All the amenities are here, we loved it, couldn't ask for anything else.
This 4th FLOOR CONDO has been remodeled and refurnished with new appliances, furniture and amenities including stereo, I pod docking station 2 TVs and DVD players and Free Wireless Internet. Enjoy beautiful sunsets each night from the private lanai. This unit is located in the courtyard side of Kauhale Makai (Village by the Sea).
Once you stay in this condo, you will never stay anywhere else
The view is remarkable!: Life on the island of Maui is simply wonderful - and spending your vacation in Village by the Sea #426 will be an unforgettable experience. The view from this condo is something you will never forget! In the winter months you will witness Humpback Whales in the water just offshore for our beach. The condo has been fully remodeled and decorated with island themed furniture and amenities. From the moment you arrive until the day you leave, you will be amazed at the beauty of this very special condo.
ALSO FOR RENT: I also have a 2bd / 2ba condo in the same complex for rent. The information and photos are contained in this link:

About Stephen Roberts
One of my greatest passions in life is travel. This is such an amazing planet with boundless cultural diversity and stunning geography. Planning my next trip is a endless passion for me. I live in San Francisco and consider it one of the greatest cities in the world. In addition, I have two beach condos in Maui, HI. I love to share these beautiful places with other adventure travelers.

Excellent location, condo layout is very comfortable, and we really like the shower.
Location in north Kihei gave us convenient access to all the local facilities, and friends and relatives with whom we went to spend Thanksgiving. We really like the condo's layout compared to others we've stayed at in Kihei. We specifically liked having a shower rather than a bathtub. Our only (slightly) negative comment is that the unit is getting a little down in the dumps and could use a little maintenance: kitchen cabinet facings are starting to peel off, and a few spots need some spackle and paint touchup. And if you ever get to replacing the toilet, we strongly suggest a modern "comfort" height unit.
Perfect location to visit Maui
We really enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable and convenient. Would suggest for an affordable vacation in beautiful island.
Great condo and location
Great condo in good location in Kihei. No issues, other than the bed could be a bit bigger. Stephen was wonderful to work with, and the unit is all it's cracked up to be.
Good Location and Nice View
Overall, this is a good place to stay, but we were somewhat disappointed, considering its very positive reviews. The gardens, pool, and spa are clean and well-maintained, and the view from the lanai is nice; however, the beach is quite a distance away from the unit, and nearby road noise tends to drown out the surf. The unit is in need of some maintenance and a deep clean, as it had damaged lanai screens, burnt-out light bulbs, dirty wall mirrors, over-use of air freshener, and an inoperable a/c unit thermostat control (always cold, even when turned to "warm", so it had to either be turned on or off). The couch bed is fairly uncomfortable for adults and had crumbs under the cushions and on the sheets. Although the unit has plenty of kitchenware and a dishwasher, simple additions such as coffee filters would be helpful. Also, the dryers in the laundry room on our floor did not work, which was inconvenient as departure instructions state that beach towels should be washed prior to check-out! In spite of these issues, we had a great time during our two-day stay at this condo, especially since it is very convenient to Kihei groceries, shops, and restaurants, and to Makena's Big Beach and La Perouse Bay (our favorites!).
Thank you so much for your feedback. I am grateful for your very constructive information. I take great pride in my condo and I will act on every item that you mentioned. I depend on guests like you to report any cleaning issues to me. Please be assured that I will be speaking with my housekeeper today! I do not accept excuses for any type of cleaning issues. There are no excuses for any type of cleaning issues!! Again, my housekeeper should have taken care of most of the issues you outlined...and I assure you that these issues will be addressed TODAY!
With regard to the air conditioner. We are at the mercy of the building hardware on this one. There are 2 fan speeds...low and high. We can't really control the temperate of the air...as it is delivered from a chiller on the roof of the building. So, yes, when it's on...it stays on the cool side. I guest cooler is better in the tropical sunshine.
The laundry rooms are controlled by the Owners Association. I will be emailing them today to understand why the dryers were out of order. As you know, there are laundry rooms just outside of the elevators on the other floors.
Again, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay...and I assure you that the items you outlined will be addressed by me ASAP!!
My stay at Kauhale Makai was a dream. Very peaceful and convenient to everywhere. I will stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay in this condo. It is big enough for two people and provided all the amenities that we needed. It was clean and well maintained. The view of the ocean and pool area are just as the photos show them to be. The balcony provided a comfortable location for enjoying our morning coffee. However, there is no privacy while sitting on the balcony, due to the proximity of the balconies of the adjacent complex. The complex grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. The beach was nice...not large and we enjoyed walking it. The air conditioning worked well when we needed it during the late afternoon and night. The bed was a little too firm for our liking. There were extra pillows, sheets and blankets if needed. The TV is high quality and worked well once we figured out how to control it (directions in the guest information book). We did not turn on the TV in the bedroom. Wi-fi worked very well. The lighting in the bath room sink area was a little low for our liking, but not too bad. The kitchen cabinet doors and drawers are starting to show their age and could use an upgrade. Overall...the condo was a good choice for our first visit to Kihei. Thank you Stephen for sharing it with us.
Kauhale Makai (Village by the Sea) is located in the town of Kihei on the sunny side of Maui. We're located approximately 9 miles from the Maui airport on South Kihei Road. This 4th floor condo is on the ocean side of the road, so there is nothing separating you from the ocean - except beautiful tropical grounds and the beach. The town of Kihei has everything you'll need while on island including shopping, golf, snorkeling, hiking, tennis or long walks on the beach. Golf: There are 5 golf courses within 5 miles of the condo. Visit the concierge desk in the lobby for reservations and greens fees.
