About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

We put careful consideration while remodeling our condo and made it as eco-friendly as possible so you can be kind to the environment while relaxing on your vacation.

Here's what we have done:

1. 80% of the wood used in the renovation came from sustainably harvested sources (Forest Stewardship Council Certification).

2. We removed walls to maximize outdoor lighting and help eliminate the need for interior lighting during the day.

3. We installed low flush toilets and water-saving faucets.

4. We installed a reverse osmosis water filtration system and supplied stainless-steel water bottles so that you don't have to purchase plastic water bottles.

5. Our bedroom set is made from Teak wood that was sustainably harvested in Indonesia.

6. The queen size mattress is made from natural rubber and organic cotton & wools.

7. Bed linens and bath towels are made from 100% organic cotton.

8. Our comfortable pillows are made from 100% natural rubber.

9. Our hot water comes from solar-hot water heaters on the roof.

10. We supply eco-friendly yoga mats made from Jute fibers.

11. Both the living room and bedroom have a combination of high-efficiency lights and dimmable lights to maximize energy conservation without compromising lighting options.

We are centrally located and within walking distance to beaches, grocery stores, a movie theater, surfing, bars, shops, beach volley ball, tennis, soccer, roller-blading rink and basketball courts. By staying at this condo, you don't need to rent a car!

Why Ryan Logtenberg chose South Maui

We chose to purchase in this location because we wanted to be right in the heart of everything that is great about Kihei. a quarter mile south is Kihei's nicest and largest beach (Charlie Young/Kamaole 1). A quarter mile north is Kihei's best surfing spot. North of us is grocery stores, movie theatres, Kalama Park, shops, restaurants, bars etc. South of us is more beaches and shops. If we bought a place any further south, it would be unpractical to walk up to the places I described, and if we bought a place any further north, the beaches would be to far to walk to. We wanted to be able to walk everywhere we needed to go for day to day activities and being off of busy South Kihei Rd on a dead end street, this location fit the bill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The benefits to your condo were greatly appreciated.  The reverse osmosis system was invaluable!  The television was wonderful, especially while watching the Olympics......even though the broadcast was so Americanized.  The kitchen was well stocked as indicated on your web site.  Adding a blender may be a good idea.  Some people may appreciate an iron and ironing board.   The design of the shower is excellent.  Glass blocks.....great idea!  We took advantage of the free calling to Canada....Fantastic! 

We very much enjoyed Virginia's company and help.  She is a definite asset as a neighbour.  She was hilarious!  What a sense of houmour. 

We certainly don't intend on overwhelming you with the above suggestions for improvements.  We very much enjoyed our stay, and will return to Canada with numerous memories of this beautiful island. 

Take care,


Marcy and Tom

-------------- Because of Marcy and Tom's suggestions, we have done the following:

1. Bought an electronic Iron

2. Bought an ironing board

3. Bought a 650 Watt CusineArt Blender and Food Processor

Mahalo for the feedback Tom and Marcy!

Sun-filled and peaceful abode

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Kihei Rental March 31-April 4. It looked just like the photos and had everything you'd need to relax at the beach and at home. The location is ideal: it's a few minutes walk to Kamahole 1 Beach, which is a family friendly beach with shade. Also, it's a few minutes walk to good restaurants and to our favorite grocery store - Hawaiian Moon, where we stocked up on organic produce, eggs, and smoothies.

The apartment has all the gear you'do need for a fun day at the beach - umbrella, towels, boogie boards and chairs with storage packs and cup holders. The chairs have straps so, you can carry them like backpacks. It made walking to the beach with them easy.

A quick note - bring an eye mask and ear plugs if you wake up easily in the mornings and are wanting to sleep-in. The sun shines in and a local rooster starts cock-a-doodle-doing around 6:30-7am.

Great Priced Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had the opportunity to experience staying in a few places on Maui during our trip. A hostel with 3 beds, a friends floor, and this wonderful condo. Compared to the Hostel this was amazing, and only 30 dollars a night more. We had 4 people stay and it was very comfortable. Their is no view of the beach from this Condo, but it really is a short walk to the beach. The beds were comfortable, and the amenities what they advertised. We had problems with getting the in unit stereo going, but had a speaker box that was bluetoothed to tide us over. The instructions were clear and the owner very responsive. We emailed him late one night about the check out time and he got back to us promptly. The shower is great. the stones like a small massage on your feet.

Centrally located, well-equipped, and comfortable atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in and cooked many breakfasts and dinners, the kitchen has many pots and pans, gas stove and necessary utensils. My sister slept on the hide-a-bed and was very comfortable, I stayed in the main bed and slept very well. I LOVE the shower, wish our home had one the same as everything about it. There were hooks and closets in very convenient places. Really liked the set up for outside bar and chairs and mirror to see behind view. The condo location is central to many different destinations on Maui, so we could have schedule such as morning hike on north volcano and then drive to top of Haleakala for sunset and then drive back to condo for a not too late dinner. It was an affordable price for location, amenities, and comfort. I would go back to stay at this condo every time, Thank you so much Ryan and Carole.

My girlfriend and me came to this appartment and it is really really awesome. It was so clean and the balcony has a view where you can see the ocean and on the other side you have the beautiful view on the mountain. The contact with Ryan was really cool and he is nice and very helpful. Thank you very much and I hope that we will come soon to Mauii and your appartment ;)

Great combo of price, location, and quality.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is part of an older property but the unit has been updated well--it's super clean and comfortable, feels well cared for. The square footage is small but the furniture is just right so it is not crowded, and the huge TV screen is a plus. The location is great, just a block from the south Kihei beaches but enough off the road that you don't hear traffic noise. Another plus is that the owner, Ryan, is really nice and is responsive if you need anything. I'm sure we'll go back here--you can't beat the combination of price, location, and quality.
