About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Maui Kamaole is rated 3-Diamond Property by Triple A (American Automobile Association) and has an A-1 stars by reviewers. Maui Kamaole Resort is truly a premier South Kihei property.

The owners of Maui Kamaole F 102, Steve and Laura Strehlau try to spend as much time as they can at their Maui home, but they are delighted to share their condo with you.

Located in the South Kihei-Wailea area, across the street from beautiful Kamaole III beach and the nearby romantic Keawakapu Beach, Maui Kamaole is an upscale low-rise condo complex featuring 2 swimming pools and hot tubs, cabanas with tables and barbecues, a waterfall, manicured tropical gardens and grounds and tennis courts.

The bright, spacious 1 bedroom with new Eastern King bed, 2 bath condo is a ground floor unit featuring both a tiledlanai off the living room with a partial ocean view and a private tiled courtyard off the master bedroom. This configuration allows the Trades to flow through with constant cooling breezes. In addition, both the living room and the bedroom have ceiling fans and air conditioning.

The condo comes equipped with outdoor toys for your enjoyment: snorkels, boogie boards, tennis rackets and balls, sand toys and beach chairs, cooler,umbrellas, two sets of right hand golf clubs w/bags, and virtually everything you could possibly need. The white sandy beaches are just across the street from the complex.

After a long day on the beach, the fully equipped kitchen with brand new appliances and new cabinets and granite counters make it easy to create a gourmet meal. Entertainment system includes flat screen tv, with sound system, DVD/CD player and a portable IPOD player. Plenty of games and a nice library round out the experience.

This building is the newest (2001) complex at Maui Kamaole and is located away from S. Kihei Road, so the condo is extremely quiet. And yet, within a half mile walking distance are convenience stores and restaurants such as Maui Taco, Fred's Mexican Restaurant, Cafe O'lei, and Moose McGilly Cuddy's. A movie theatre and grocery store are within two miles of the condo. South of Maui Kamaole are the beautiful Shops at Wailea with high-end stores and restaurants. Several World Class golf courses are also within a few miles of Maui Kamaole.

Maui Kamaole will delight you. This ground floor unit provides privacy while allowing you to take in the beautiful tropical setting.

We hope the beauty of Maui, the friendliness of its people and our truly comfortable and convenient condo will make you want to return to the island every year.

Our condo is managed by Maui Rental Group in Wailea. Their phone number is 808-874-0001 for more information.

About Laura Strehlau

Owners, Laura and Steve Strehlau love coming to Maui especially when the weather in the Pacific Northwest is less than ideal. We also like to come in spring and fall...summer is fun too! There just isn't a bad time to be in Maui.

We are avid travelers and have filled our condo with reminders of our travel. Being an enthusiastic cook, Laura has filled the kitchen with handy utensils, cookware, and dishes.

Laura Strehlau purchased this condo in 2007

Why Laura Strehlau chose Kihei

We love the Kihei area because the weather seems to be the best throughout the year. We love the Maui Kamaole because it is near shops, restaurants, beaches, and golf courses, but it is very quiet and private.

What makes this condo unique

The landscaping at the Maui Kamaole is very lush and tropical. The courtyard off the bedroom is very private and it is a wonderful place to relax with your morning cup of coffee.

The waterfall,palms and flowering bouganvillea make a perfect setting to relax poolside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love walking through the door of the condo and knowing we're home, away from home. This condo truly makes us feel we've arrived in Maui. It is so easy to relax here in the quiet, tropical setting with cool breezes blowing through. With such a comfortable condo, somedays, we never leave, but relax on the lanai or spend a few hours at the beautiful upper pool. Our life slows down. We have time to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us and

so when it is time to return home, we truly feel like we've have had a relaxing vacation.

Thank you.

I love everything about this place

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. Perfect decor. Very clean. Very beautiful. Amazing amenities like the pool & hot tub. Washer/dryer in suite. So many extras - towels, beach toys, sandals, everything!! The most comfortable chair in the world. Soft and cozy bed. Beautiful linens and towels. Gorgeous lanai and glimpses of the ocean. Secluded outdoor area off the bedroom. I would stay here time and time again. The owners are a delight. They have thought of everything and more!! Right across from a gorgeous beach but quiet so no sound of traffic or noise. Great location - close enough to walk places but far enough that you don't feel like you are right in Kihei. I appreciated the beauty of this home very much. It is obvious everyone involved cares about this place and puts love into making it so comfortable and amazing. Deep gratitude. Highly recommended. Wonderful value and well worth the investment.

The only thing missing is recycling and composting facilities. That would make this place A+++.

Property was beautiful. Well maintained

Condo was very nice. Owners provided immediate attention for a couple of small issues. Disappointed there was no phone in the condo, as advertised. Enjoyed the pool and BBQ areas.

Perfect 75th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Okay, negatives first. We forgot, upon arrival, to buy tissues and napkins when we went shopping. Beyond that, there are absolutely no complaints. The condo was just beautiful, the decor was lovely, and extremely updated. We loved having it on the first floor because of the beautiful lanai which we used each morning. So many other families had to walk a great distance from their parking slots carrying luggage and groceries. Ours was practically at the entrance to the condo. The weather was perfect and the beach very accessible as well as gorgeous. A car is a must though. We felt bad saying goodbye to "our home away from home", but we are talking about returning.

Updated unit, excellent choice in South Kihei

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice unit - recently updated top to bottom (we stayed here September 2016). Beautiful tilework, granite, stainless steel, furnishings, etc. It's a ground floor unit, so you can walk right out of the livingroom onto a big patio and grassy area, facing west with a 'glimpse' of ocean.. The bedroom at the other end of the condo also has a small patio. Lots of beach chairs and toys, snorkel gear etc. in the cupboards.

Great location - two-minute walk to the pool.. five minute walk downhill to Kamaole 3 beach (good), and a four minute drive to Keawakapu Beach (arguably the best on Maui).

A few minor concerns - the king mattress in the bedroom is very soft - not great for bad backs. And the sofabed mattress might be okay for kids but don't expect an adult to sleep there. Also the design of the buildings means the unit upstairs from you is set back about 10 feet, so their sliding lanai door is right above the middle of your livingroom ceiling - kinda noisy opening and closing. And the coffeemaker had problems - looked like someone had overheated it.

Overall a great stay - can't wait to get back!

At ease

  • 4 of 5

The Maui Kamaole neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. Especially enjoyed the upper pool and spa area. The Strehlau unit is lovely, comfortable, and equipped to encourage exploration of the area -- boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, even extra flip-flops -- a life saver! Enjoyed morning coffee on the patio gazing toward the ocean. Proximity to good food, amenities, and spectacular beaches! It will be even better when the upstairs neighbor trades in her clogs for something with soft soles. Thank you for terrific accommodations!

Perfect for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo! Maui Kamaole is in a great location in the south end of Kehei. The condo is perfectly stocked with absolutely everything you might need (and may have forgotten!). We loved the quick, easy access to the upper pool! Both pools were chilly on the windy days, but perfect when the sun was shining and the wind died down. Our kids, ages 3 and 1.5 loved playing on both lanais and watching all the geckos! This condo was more than big enough for our family of 4. We loved that the location was close to so many great beaches, too! The layout of the complex is such that you don't feel like the place is swarming with people. We could tell that the owners take great pride in their condo and keep it very clean and up to date. We really appreciated the washer/dryer and two bathrooms. We also appreciated all the beach gear available for our use. The parking space is right across from the entry door for quick, easy access. Close to the beach, well stocked, and big enough for our family of 4! Thanks for a great stay - we hope to return one day!
