Overview

About the property

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

We'd like to invite you to our Klassy Kalama Terrace Condo on the island of Maui, Kihei, HI!

Our renovations were recently completed. We know you are going to love the Island of Maui, and you will enjoy staying at our condo.

Our condo is romantic, cozy, quiet and close to the beaches. We are centrally located to all activities and highway connections to all sites on the Island. It is an easy four minute stroll to Cove Park, where surfing and paddle board lessons are given daily. It is the same distance to famous Charley Young Beach where weddings are conducted regularly and you can watch beautiful sunsets. Walk another minute north to Kalama Park to join in festivals, jam sessions of drums and Ukuleles, skate boarding, softball diamonds and a constant volleyball game. A wonderful playground for the little one is there, also. Across from this park is a Foodland grocery store, superb restaurants, sidewalk cafes, a thrift store, and tourist spots bars. Venture five minutes south to the Kamaole Beach I next to Charley Young Beach. The beaches are connected. Get a 'plate' at the 'Da Kitchen' restaurant while riding our bicycles and continue south to explore the famous shops at the Wailea Mall. Golf is available within 15 minutes at numerous fantastic courses. We recently acquired two 7' surfboards which we offer free usage of while you are our guests. That is a savings of $25.00 per day per board! We also have a 12 ft. surf fishing rod and reel with line. Also 7x35 binoculars for whale viewing. You have your ownreserved parking space.

Kalama Terrace is located in beautiful South Maui in the town of Kihei where rain is a rarity almost assuring you of a warm, sunny vacation. The condo has locked gates for added security and a resident manager that is very vigilant. With only a 30 minute drive from Kahului airport, you could be basking on the beach sunning, swimming and just enjoying the tropical setting of Maui within a very short time of arriving on Maui. Since 'our' beach faces the western horizon, you will enjoy some of the most memorable sunsets you will see anywhere.

Our condo has everything that we found necessary for an exciting and adventurous life on Maui. Even a Pack 'n Play for the little one. Island breezes flow through the unit when the door is open and the air conditioner is rarely needed to cool the area. The coordinated living and dining room furniture are accented by the flowing curtains guarding the private Lanai. We also have an oak , full size, futon. Stay connected to home with the high speed WiFI and cable for the flat screen TV. An additional TV is situated for lazy bedroom viewing. The kitchen is fully equipped and not missing anything that we could think of for at home cooking of nutritious meals. We have stainless steel cookware. The bedroom is for lovers only! Custom Levelor curtains block out all night light and reveal the unique 'sky!' Come see for yourself. There are shared washer and dryer facilities at the complex. Come play with all the toys that are provided including our two new Maui Cruiser bicycles and you will have a super vacation in Maui. Unfortunately, we cannot supply enough time!

We just hope that you love your stay at this condo as much as we do!

Why Gerald & Meredith Johnson chose South Maui

We had visited Maui for three years and finally were fortunate enough to buy this condo. We completely renovated it and fell in love with it and the complex. We just hope that your stay here is as wonderful as ours is every year!

What makes this condo unique

We are impressed with the cleanliness of the complex, its flora, unique swimming pool, and how quiet and peaceful it is in the condo. The location is easy access to all points of interest. We have very friendly neighbors! In the evenings we stroll down to the beach to watch the beautiful Maui sunset every chance we get.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We will definitely recommend this place to our friends.

Mahalo!

Perfect Accommodations in a Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Going to Maui was a dream come true for us, so to have this condo as our home base as we embraced all of the sights and sounds just made our dream more unbelievable! We felt instant relaxation and tranquility upon taking our first steps into Meredith and Jerry's condo. They have done an incredible job bringing the serene, "Aloha" spirit of Maui into this very comfortable, homey living space. There is much attention to detail with tropical decor and amenities to fit your every need. The Johnson's have put together a wonderful binder for their guests that explains everything about the condo and activities on the island. This was extremely helpful! They provide all of the beach equipment you may need too. We loved being able to come back to the condo to hangout after going to the beach, sightseeing, and other fun things that you can do during your stay. We went to the grocery store the first day. We weren't totally prepared for the food prices in Maui. However, we figured out that if you tell the cashier that you are staying at Kalama Terrace that they give you the sale prices even though you don't have a card. The kitchen is stocked with cookware and other things needed to make meals. The condo is very well maintained and extremely clean! We enjoyed time at the condo pool--which is also well maintained. We found the complex to be quiet and secluded even though it is only a couple of minutes away from the main strip of Kihei. We rented a car from Kihei Rent A Car. (Highly recommended!) Kihei is in a great location to be able to get anywhere on the island in a little bit of time. The restaurants are fun and within walking distance. It is a family tradition to go to restaurants featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network. There are three of them in Kihei! One of our favorite things to do was go to Charley Young Beach to watch the magnificent sunsets every evening. Again, you can walk or drive according to your preference. There seems to be a beach to fit every level of water activity you want to do. It was fun to watch the surfers and paddle boarders at the beach connected to Kalama Park. It would be great to have a rating system higher than five because we would surely give it the highest rating. It would be easy to envision staying in this quaint condo again and working with Meredith and Jerry. Our experience was perfect!

So lucky to have returned to this condo and to Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were really lucky to return to Maui and to this beautiful condo. Jerry and Meredith were so welcoming and attentive on email. The place was as clean and inviting as it was two years ago. We love the neighbourhood as everyone is so friendly. There were many residents at Kalama Terrace when we visited as well as returning renters like us. We spent mornings at the beach with the boogie boards provided and leisurely afternoons at the pool. Jerry and Meredith had everything we needed in the condo. Previous renters left their leftover spray on sunscreen and skin creams which came in handy as our children would not stop for reapplications of regular sunscreen so we had to spray them as they ran by us on the beach :). The weather was so warm and beautiful. We hope to return soon. Thank you for a dream vacation.

Exceptional hosts, awesome location, Mahalo! Jerry and Meredith♥

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our stay at Kalama Terrace #210. Jerry and Meredith were exceptional hosts from accepting and processing our booking, to arrival and then keeping in touch during our holiday the best! Well equipped kitchen, fabulous collection of condiments and other goodies that personal "homes" would provide to appreciative guests. The location is convenient, whether you have a vehicle or not. We valued your coffee table binder of tips, suggestions, tidbits and pointers. The sparkling pool, dedicated parking, BBQ's and relaxing lanai added to our Hawaiian experience." A home away from home" for a few days or a month that we were grateful for. Your neighborhood setting, near so many peaceful spots made this year in Maui complete. Thanks, RnR from Canada

Great condo, great owner, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Klassy Kalama. The property is clean. It is close to everything in Kihei. Jerry and Meredith were very welcoming, responsive and patience with all of my queries. The booking process from start to finish was a breeze and we were provided with clear instructions and directions.

The condo has everything you need. We have travelled to other Hawaiian islands and always stayed at places that have full kitchen because we loved getting local produce and seafood from the local markets to fix our meal. So, the first thing that I did was checked out the kitchen. I must say Klassy Kalama's kitchen is exceptional! The kitchen appliances works great, the utensils and dishes were clean. There were various sizes of pots and non stick pans, as well as various kinds of knives. All were good quality. The cabinets were well stocked with all kinds of condiments, herbs and spices, etc, and everything was well organized. And...I'm a fan of glass cookware :) As soon as I saw them in the kitchen cabinets, I was ecstatic! I knew then that I would enjoy cooking in this kitchen, just like at home! The condo also has everything you need for beach day. We used the beach chairs, beach mats, umbrella, cooler, beach towels, snorkel sets and boogie boards.

We really like Kihei. In my opinion it has more of a campy beach town feel to it compared to West Maui and you are around MANY more locals, which is perfect for us! Great location as starting point to drive around the island. We spent a lot of time on the beach and definitely appreciate that this condo is walking distance to many beautiful beaches in South Maui. Our favorites are Charley Young and Keawakapu Beach. They are family friendly beaches. Sunsets are beautiful at any of these beaches. Charley Young is 5 mins walk from the condo and is a turtle highway!! Some of them swam right up to us when we were swimming. The waves were great for boogie boarding. Our son said, "I hope Jerry will keep this boogie board forever so that it will always be here when we come back!"

The complex is well maintained. They were installing a gazebo in the BBQ area the day we left. Jerry and Meredith were easily contacted when we were at the condo and readily to assist. We certainly appreciate their professionalism.

From the Haleakala's peak to underwater Molokini -- MAHALO, Jerry and Meredith!

Klassy Kalama was our home away from home. We hope you are able to receive us again soon! Maybe Molokai next :)

Perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in this condo and it was absolutely perfect! Than you to Jerry & Meredith for not only allowing us to bring our "furry" kid with us, but for being so helpful and personable throughout the entire process. The location of the condo was ideal and the kitchen had virtually everything we needed. The boogie boards and beach chairs were our favorite beach toys though there was alot more to choose from. We would recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Maui, it was awesome, and you won't find owners any kinder and more helpful then Jerry & Meredith. Thank you again!

Awesome place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha and Mahalo Jerry & Meredith for an awesome place in Kihei! My husband and I had such a great time in Maui and this place made it even better. This place has it all - from a fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, coffee, spices, to a fully stocked closet full of beach amenities like coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, beach mats, snorkeling gear, just to name a few. This place was quiet and relaxing, very close to restaurants and shops and a short walk to the beach (Kam 1). The bed was cozy and comfy, bathroom had clean towels and full of bath essentials, even insect repellent and sunscreen lotion. Jerry and Meredith even emailed us when we arrived to make sure everything was okay. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family planning a visit to Maui. There is also a binder on the coffee table that has all the information you need to tour the entire island. I also loved reading the Klassy Kalama journal on the coffee table about the experiences of others before us. We enjoyed very much the Road to Hana and the back road (bamboo forest, Twin Falls, black sands beach, red sands beach, all the waterfalls along the road, country side), sunset at Haleakala, sunsets at Kam beaches, shopping at Wailea, Old Lahaina Luau, Maui Tropical Plantation, Ululani's Shave Ice at Front St in Lahaina, Mama's Fish House in Pa'ia, Cafe O'Lei, Joy's Place (great vegan/vegetarian restaurant that Steven Tyler frequents), snorkeling at Molokini and Turtle Town. There is just so many things to see and do in Maui, we didn't have enough time. Aloha and Mahalo again Jerry & Meredith!
