About Mimi

This condo was purchased by Murdock and Mary Ellen MacPherson over 30 years ago as their winter home. The MacPherson family has since grown to include children and grandchildren who all contribute to this vacation spots evolving character. We are all very excited to share this fantastic property and adventure with you! ALOHA!

Mimi purchased this condo in 1982

Why Mimi chose South Maui

Mac's Luau just finished an update of the kitchen and bathrooms and its absolutely beautiful, spacious and casual so that all members of the family can enjoy a wonderful Hawaiian vacation. Kihei Beach Resort and the beach area surrounding it is private, kid friendly, and feels like a home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is a corner unit on the second floor with unobstructed views of the ocean, beach, pool and amazing sunsets. Across the street from the daily farmers market, ABC Store, Sugar Beach Bakery and Ululani's Hawaiian Shaved Ice. Voted best on Maui. Great location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Shay in Seattle....Ladies and gentleman, I can truly say now that I LOVE long walks on the beach!The MacPherson Maui condo was AMAZING. I can honestly say that I had the best vacation ever at this spot! Ocean view, private pool, and the property staff were incredibly friendly.

Staying in a condo was definitely the way to go. You have a kitchen, unlike in a hotel room, so we were able to save loads of money by just buying groceries down the street and making food for all but THREE meals while we were there.

And not only was the condo cozy, but stocked full of fun things! Boogie boards, snorkel gear, a couple fishing poles, sunscreen and many more things you'll want to have while in Maui! My group also added to that list with 4 inflatable tubes and 4 bamboo mats for the beach. :)

I would recommend this MacPherson Prop on Kihei, Maui to any and all who will listen. SUCH a deal!

Go. Now. Book it. :)

We just spent 11 days at this property in Maui - it was everything we expected and then some! The location was excellent, the amenities were awesome, couldn't have asked for anything more! Can't wait to book it again next year!

Beautiful views and comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place. The owners are super quick in their response and very reasonable. We enjoyed our stay immensely. We appreciate the use of all the beach equipment. Gorgeous sunsets from the lanai. A lovely beach just out back. Whales breaching in the distance. This place was as described and we would definitely recommend. When we go back, we will look here as an option.

Most Relaxing Vacation I've ever been on!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this same condo previously with my children and 75 year old mother. However, this time I went with my fiance and we want to buy a condo here...that's how much we loved it! With children, it was great as it's easy access to Lahaina, the Aquarium and Wailea. Without kids, it was so relaxing! We swam every day, went to a couple different beaches and into Lahaina one evening for a nice dinner. Most of the time, we relaxed by the pool, in the lounge chairs on the beautifully groomed grass and roamed the gorgeous Sugar Beach right outside the condo. We left windows open at night so we could hear the lovely sound of the waves crashing and feel the tropical breeze...I haven't slept so soundly ever. Seriously, we want to move there! We are planning on having our wedding here as well. It's one of the most beautiful locations, easy and chill. Everyone is so friendly and we never heard anyone above us, under us or beside us. This is a beautiful corner condo, with a large lanai and 2 bedrooms. We ate most of our dinners at the condo as it has a full kitchen and everything you can imagine you would need. We can't wait to go back...sooner than later!

We Loved it so much, we can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I took my 73 year old mother and two teenagers to this perfect condo in Kihei…it was the best vacation my kids said they've ever had and can't wait to go back! We went over the 4th of July 2013 as my mom's birthday was on 7/3/13! We loved the Rainbow Shaved Ice place across the street from the condo. I think we went there at least once a day and sometimes twice. My mom is diabetic and they even had sugar free flavors! This Kihei location is easy access to Lahaina or if you want to head the other direction to Wailea. We went to different beaches every day but always came back to the condo to swim in the pool and walk on the beach during sunset. It's the perfect location!

If we could give this place six stars we would! Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My army husband, 75 year old mother, 3 year old daughter and 2 1/2 month old daughter and myself were planning our first ever trip to Hawaii and stumbled across this condo on the vrbo website and boy am I sure glad we did! Words cannot describe what a beautiful place this was to stay. It is in a quiet part of Kihei, the accessibility to the pool and beach are phenomenal, and the view is breath taking. We loved walking across the street to the farmers market, souvenir shop, and shaved ice shop. The area of beach is great too because the surf is not very strong in that area, so we felt comfortable having our three year old in the water with us. We will definitely be back! We can hardly wait!!!

just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

in my head, i'm still waking up to the bright sun filtering in and the waves crashing on the beach below, the smell of delicious kona coffee brewing at a ridiculously early hour in mainland terms. we had it ALL at mac's luau; plenty of room for 6 adults, unbeatable views in the morning of the rowers and at night of the spectacular sunset, a delightful pool, great kitchen for making family-style meals and a lanai worthy of coming home early from a long day at the beach for evening happy hours. the farmers' market JUST across the street was stellar from the fresh mangoes and papayas, to the fabulous homemade spicy pineapple salsa and chocolate chip banana bread. the toughest decision we made each day was which impeccable beach to bring our snorkel gear and boogie boards to every day (best for activities: big beach. best for relaxing: keawaukapu). the location couldn't be beat.

short drives to excellent meals out-- kihei cafe for breakfast/lunch (bring cash!), paia fish market, haile maile general store (bring credit cards!) -- made having a designated driver necessary. but cool quiet nights and a fully stocked bar at the condo was worth coming home to!

the owners were friendly and helpful throughout the rental process and i have passed their name along to everyone i can (though, as i plan on being back MANY times, i hope word doesn't spread too quickly...)

thanks, mac's luau, for indulging us in our inaugural trip to maui! cheers to many returns!!
