Bring your binoculars so you can watch Humpback Whales in season, easily keep an eye on the kids at the pool or sheltered beach. Enjoy the gorgeous Maui sunset every evening....All right from our lanai (porch).
65 to 85: Why was this location chosen by the Royals of old Maui as their home? Perfect weather. Our high and low temperatures are almost always 65 degrees and 85 degrees - year around.
North Kihei is on the sheltered dry side of Maui, close to the airport and all of the amenities that Maui has to offer. Why waste your valuable vacation time driving??? We are 25 min. from the airport, not 90 like other locations on Maui.
Ma’alaea harbor is 5 min away and features a full range of activities including snorkeling, dinner cruises and whale watching. It also features The Maui Ocean Center (aquarium) and some of the best restaurants in Hawaii. Shopping and sports activities to suit any taste are right here for you as well.
We are on a beautiful beach but some of Hawaii’s world-class beaches and snorkeling areas are just south of us and if you love the high surf, the fabulous north shore is about 30 min away. Night life in Laheina and Ka’anapali is also available.
We offer a fully updated condominium with all of the features you expect. In-unit washer/dryer, all tile floors and excellent natural cooling located on the 5th floor, north wing of the building.
The park-like grounds feature a heated pool, beach, restaurant, roof area with BBQ, whale watching and gorgeous sunsets, off-street parking and a quite environment.
We employ an on-call local professional management company (Maui Menehune Aloha LLC) who is available if there are any issues with the condo. We want to be sure that every minuet you spend in paradise is spent on your terms.

About Jim and Diane Ogann
We are from the Midwest have grown children. We have owned this unit since 1999 and have completely renovated it. We enjoy using it when it isn't rented and usually get over to Maui twice a year to make little additions and insure it is ready for your stay. We hope that you will enjoy our second home as much as we do. The website linked below includes a few of the comments our previous guests have left and a photo of our family. Mahalo (thank-you) for looking.
Jim and Diane Ogann purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Jim and Diane Ogann chose Kihei
Maui is one of the best places to vacation in the world and this area is one of the best on Maui. It is quiet, dry and close to everything. Winter or summer the temperature is almost always between 65 and 85F. The Ancient Hawaiian Royals chose this part of the island to live and built the fish pond that is still there today in front of Menehune Shores. Menehune is unique in that it is right on the water. 150 steps from our unit to the Pacific. No streets or parking lots to cross so you can send the kids to the pool and watch them from your lanai. Our unit faces west and north so we have the sunset view and the cool shade while overlooking the pool, the ocean and the park-like grounds. Our 5th floor vantage point allows us to whale watch right from our lanai so bring your binoculars.
What makes this Condo unique
We have many friends here and the complex is staffed by an excellent on-site team that can take care of any issues that arise. (Mauimenehunealoha dot com) That applies to both owners and guests. This extra advantage provides you with the peace of mind that your stay will not be interrupted by issues that are not addressed immediately. For first-time condo guests, this is especially important. Our unit has everything we need to entertain guests and we visit frequently to insure it is all in tip-top shape. HDTV, WIFI and DVD player are provided.

Property was very clean. Well equipped. Excellent location
A wonderful place to stay!
Great location, amazing view, we highly recommend staying here!
Just what we wanted!
We really enjoyed the condo, and Jim was very patient and helpful with straightening out some potential payment issues when I clicked on the "submit payment" button a couple too many times (oops). We loved the central location of Menehune Shores for heading various directions around the island. Yes, it would have been a bit more convenient if you could quickly walk to some nearby stores/restaurants but with that comes more people/noise so we gladly drove the mile or 2 to wherever we needed to go get something, and enjoyed the peaceful condo/beach/neighborhood the rest of the time. The building itself was very quiet - quite contrary to the place we stayed in Hana one last night where you could hear every footstep of your neighbors (although it was also a nice place). The view was fabulous and everything also was just as advertised. Would definitely stay here again!
Thanks Mike. We appreciate your business and the time you took to write a review. All the best. Jim
Just what we are looking for
Kihei is a nice smaller town than Lahaina yet has plenty to do and beautful beaches, our hosts were very nice and accommodating and provided us with detailed workings on all things condo. Lovely place with pool, outdoorf grills and picnics tables, beautiful sunsets, and well kept inside, would stay again! thank you
Well equipped, relaxing rental
We loved our stay! We love to cook and were so happy to find cookbooks, kitchen supplies and grills on the property. It was so comfortable and central to a lot of the things we wanted to see in Kihei. The beach was literally our backyard.
We were quite happy with our stay at Jim and Diane's condo. The condo complex is in a great location, right on the beach. A special feature is the old Hawaiian Fishing Pond just beyond the perimeter of the complex. It made for a fairly shallow area to swim, almost feeling like you had a pool in the ocean. This would be great for families with smaller kids. A safe place for little ones to enjoy the ocean. As a bonus, the rock walls surrounding the pond attracted sea turtles that we encountered daily. This was probably one of the highlights of our stay- to wade out, watch the turtles swim and sun themselves on the rock walls.
The condo itself was clean, bright and had all of the things we needed for our stay, including beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, and even sand toys for the kids. The master bedroom and living room have a wonderful view of the pool and ocean. It was quite lovely to listen to the waves. The complex is well maintained. I regularly saw maintenance people cleaning the pool, the grounds and the various barbeque grills available to residents and guests. It also has a large roof deck where we grilled, ate and watched the sunset.
Additionally, Jim and Diane were quite responsive which made it easy to book our reservation. I was looking for a condo with a reasonable cancellation policy in case we had a change in travel plans, and theirs was very fair. They were flexible with requests which allowed our stay to be so relaxing. Staying at Menehune Shores truly felt like a vacation. My family was sad to leave, but we will be back. Thank you, Jim and Diane, for sharing your home.
Thanks Catherine. We appreciate your wonderful comments and look forward to seeing you again.
Whale watching, Dinner cruises close by, Whale conservation, Winery, Rainforest - North, Lava field just South New Zip-lines are now operational.
