Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + fold-out sofa bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)

Enjoy sunsets over the ocean in our two-bedroom, two-bathroom, oceanfront condo with a beach park next door. This non-smoking condo is located in the desirable Menehune Shores in peaceful north Kihei at Kalepolepo Beach. It's excellent for families, two couples, or a small group of friends. There is a queen bed in each bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room with an extra thick mattress. Maximum occupancy is six persons. Two full bathrooms are an added convenience. The unit has been completely remodeled and the owners add and replace items every year to keep it up-to-date. It has free, reliable wi-fi internet, a washer and dryer, and two televisions. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy meal preparation and all linens are provided, including beach towels. There's also a closet full of beach gear, pool toys, a cooler, boogie boards, golf clubs and more for your outdoor recreation. Email the owners for a detailed quote and get your questions answered. Various safe payment options are available and you can book with confidence through us! Do a search for Menehune 304 to find ways to contact the owners and avoid unnecessary fees. We want to provide the best Maui experience for our guests at the fairest price.

MENEHUNE SHORES is a peaceful, immaculately tended, oceanfront complex located on the beach in Kihei, a twenty minute drive from the Kahului airport. Shopping, surfing and excursion opportunities are just minutes away. Our third-floor lanai overlooks the pool and the ocean, with views to West Maui and the island of Lanai. Our unit does not look out at other condos like many other complexes, just green and blue space. The solar-heated oceanfront pool, barbecue grills, and shuffleboard are located next to a small beachfront park which is perfect for young children. More grills and tables are located on the roof deck which provides fabulous 360-degree views of Maui, including Molokini Crater, Lanai and Kaho’olawe islands, and Haleakala Volcano. Protected swimming at the King’s Pond right in front of Menehune Shores is a plus for visitors who want shallow ocean swimming without strong currents or large surf. Humpback whales can often be seen from the condo December through April, and the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary headquarters and lookout is right next door.

We are positive you will enjoy our well-equipped vacation home and the beautiful island of Maui. Aloha!

About Vicki and Dave Williamson, menehune304@gmail.com

We are an adventurous family of five from Encinitas, California, with midwestern roots (Michigan and Wisconsin). We love camping, surfing, skiing, hiking and traveling as much as our work, schedules, and finances allow.

Vicki and Dave Williamson, menehune304@gmail.com purchased this condo in 2003

Why Vicki and Dave Williamson, menehune304@gmail.com chose South Maui

We bought this property when we had the opportunity because of our love of the islands and Maui in particular.

What makes this condo unique

Menehune Shores is ideally located on the north end of Kihei, where it is quiet and more peaceful than in town, yet only a mile from shopping, restaurants and all the activities Kihei offers. It is also convenient to get just about anywhere you want on the island without a long drive, whether it's Wailea/Makena, the North Shore, Lahaina/Ka'anapali, or Kahului and the airport. There is a small, quiet beach adjacent, the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary headquarters next door, then green space and miles of beach to walk beyond that. We love how the unit looks out onto ocean, bay, and natural green space, not onto other condos or a parking lot! An added plus: the beach next door is mellow and kid-friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, we had an awesome time. The condo was perfect :-) It had everything we needed and, as was said earlier, is very centrally located for everything. We mountain biked, snorkeled, paddle boarded, beach sat, swam, drove the Road to Hana and just had a great time.



A couple more things you can add to your suggestions are the place we rented paddle boards from and a place we ate at: We rented paddle boards from The Big Kahuna on Kihei Road. He was great. And we went to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp up in Lahaina. It was awesome and the wait wasn’t long.



The lanai was awesome and the people at the complex were great

Third times a charm!

  • 5 of 5

That's right, this is the third time I've stayed in this condo in the past 3 years. That goes to show not only will your Maui trip be enhanced staying here, but the hosts are beyond gracious when guests look to book #304. Every time we leave, we're mentally already booking the next trip before we've even left the OGG airport in Maui. Not much more to say that hasn't been said in my last 3 reviews but I promise, you'll love EVERY minute of staying here! Aloha

Great family stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Menehune Shores. The grounds are kept up well and the grills were very clean. Shuffleboard was a lot of fun. The fishing pond provided for a great kid friendly beach and it was fun to see all the turtles in it. Great location with a reasonable drive to many areas.

The unit was very clean and had everything we needed. The closet was so full of gear to try different activities. We really liked the extensive folder of information provided in the unit which provided great tips for your time on Maui.

Thank you.

amazing grounds, great location, stunning views and sunset watching!

  • 4 of 5

cannot say enough wonderful things about the grounds of this condo!! really is as beautiful (or more!) than the pictures show! the sunset viewing from the lanai is perfect!! the trade winds were wonderful for cooling the condo down each afternoon since it doesn't have A/C. needs a few updating and maintenance touches, but the owners are working on that.

the owners were wonderful to work with and very prompt with their replies.

SO thankful to have spent an amazing 9 days on the beautiful island of maui!!

Perfect place for four people.

Enjoyed watching the whales every morning while having coffee on the balcony. Very clean, comfy and filled with every need. Beach chairs, snorkels, towels, etc. Vicky was a gem to work with. Responded very quickly to my questions. Two thumbs up!

Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

The process to book was simple and seamless. This is our 2nd time in Maui and the first time in Kihei and I enjoyed the stay. It's so calm and relaxing. Parking is included with your stay (which many of the other properties do not offer), the condo is fully equipped with kitchen items, towels, beach items. The balcony was huge and we enjoyed breakfast every morning overlooking the ocean. The condo was a lot of windows for open air. Our deposit was returned promptly.

I highly recommend this place.

Mahalo!

Swimming with turtles in the Historic Hawaiian Fish Pond directly in front of Menehune Shores is a treat for all ages. The walled-in beach pond is protected from big waves and undertow, has a sandy bottom, and is warm and shallow.
