About the property

Condo 1 Bedroom + Futon, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). Local agent Carlos Pacheco Pacheco


We have just finished extensive re-modeling, including new 18x18 Italian floor tile throughout, new kitchen and bath cabinets with granite countertops, and brand new teak plantation style furniture.

Our home away from home is located on the third floor, and has expansive ocean views from the bedroom and living room lanais. Our unit also faces the beautiful INTERIOR of the complex and/or overlooks the well manicured tropical landscaping and pool area (versus many other units overlooking the exterior and/or the mountain view/parking lot area).

Our condo is located in the Kauhale Makai Resort, and is also known as Village by the Sea. Our address is 938 South Kihei Road, #328, Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, and we are on the ocean side of Kihei Road. Our unit comfortably sleeps four with a brand new serta king size bed with luxurious 600 thread count sheets, and queen size futon in the living room.

Our condo complex features a manned lobby, concierge service for booking your outings, elevators, coin operated laundry rooms on every floor, newly remodeled pool area plus a kiddie pool and Jacuzzi, gas fireplaces adjacent to the pool, a putting green, a volley ball court, and shuffleboard. We also have the most incredible ocean side tennis courts immediately adjacent to our complex. And we have broadband high speed internet (the fastest speed on the island).

We are a 20 minute drive from Maui – Kahului Airport. We are 2 minutes from downtown Kihei with grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping aplenty. We are within 5 minutes of the world famous Kamaole I, II, and III beaches. And we are within 10 minutes of beautiful Wailea and the upscale 'Shops at Wailea' shopping center.

Maui is world famous for its beaches, and you will find that you can trek from the beach in front of our unit endlessly along the coastline.

We have an activity director in our lobby, which can assist you in booking endless fun, including: luaus, whale watching tours, sailing, horseback riding, snorkeling, golf, biking down a volcano, wine tasting, fishing, jet skiing, windsurfing, surfing, etc…, etc…, etc…

We take pride in our home away from home and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Aloha and welcome,

About Jim deDiego

We have owned this unit since 1983 and have remodeled our unit 3 times constantly bringing it up to meet the needs of our clients. We have been very involved in the property and on our six week stays, we make sure that everything meets our standards. We have been with VRBO since 1999, one of the beginning members. It is truly our home away from home.

Jim deDiego purchased this condo in 1983

Why Jim deDiego chose South Maui

We bought this property in 1983 because of its beautiful surroundings, great location on the water, close proximity to shopping, elevator, in unit air conditioning and beautiful view of the ocean. At night, the lights of Maalaea Harbor are lit up, and you can see the far away lights of cars coming and going to Lahaina. Whales are constantly seen from the lanai during whale season.

What makes this condo unique

Free whale watching from our lanai. A view of what is happening at the pool and BBQ area. Watching the sail boats stop in front of our complex to let their paying guests swim with the turtles. Watching sail boarders in the afternoon zipping to and fro from our lanai. Wading in and walking through hand made areas where fish reach maturity along our beaches. Letting go of life's complications and just relaxing and enjoying the birds and ocean views. Staying connected with love one's through our high speed wifi.

Great view!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed a week here after spending 3 weeks in other places in Hawaii. The condo is very comfortable ( bed especially and A/C worked great) and pictures are accurate. Parking space is good, kitchen easy to use, bathroom perfect, location OK. Now to the 2 things that cause me to rate this a 3 instead of a 5. One is fixable and one is not.

First the wind-it blows about 30mph almost every afternoon and this condo takes the brunt of it. One night we were grilling and the grill would not stay lit. Maybe June is a windy month but I did not get that impression talking to others. If the building was angled slightly different it would block the wind but it isn't. We literally had to put paper towels in the patio door to stop the windows from rattling 2 evenings. The pool area is the center of this wind tunnel so we spent no time there. Fortunately, it dies down at night so it is pleasant to have coffee on he lanai in the morning. We left each day to explore so I have no idea what time the big winds start.

The second item may be trivial but it was frustrating and I saw a reference in another review. We have stayed at 4 other condos on this trip and this is the first where there are no condiments. No salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil, coffee, foil, plastic wrap-not one thing. I fortunately saw this before I came so I brought spices but now having stayed all these other places I just question why these things can't be left when someone leaves. I asked the front desk and they said it is all up to he owners so I hope Jim changes his view going forward. To throw out an entire bottle of olive oil, mustard, coffee etc just seems a waste. Two other trivial points on amenities. The condo was very clean when we arrived and we only found 2 towels in the bathroom. It was sparse( no guidebooks, no spices) and we looked all over for beach towels and coffee filters and could not find them. Off to the store for a second time to buy filters and a towel. The next morning I found the coffee filter behind the toaster in a cabinet and the 3rd day we found extra towels under the bed!! For future guests please leave a note because who thinks to look under a bed?

We enjoyed Maui - it was our favorite island and we loved the view and our dinners in the condo. The location worked for exploring all the island and if the wind ever died I would come back.

Owner's Response: Sorry you could not find the towels etc, but they were there. All of Kihei gets the trade winds in the afternoon. There is nothing that anyone can do about it, it is usually welcomed by guests. We did provide condiments etc, but some guests do not take responsibility for these items and leave them down at the BBQ area etc. we have no control over that. Jim

BEST week ever!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded all of our expectations. We arrived in the dark and the next morning pulled the curtains back to be greeted with the most spectacular view! The photos are an exact replica of what you'll see from the lanai but yet they still don't do it justice. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one might need along with beach chairs, boogie boards and big beach towels. The king size bed is very comfortable and the air condition made coming home after a long day in the sun - great! The location is prime as it's close enough to everything to be able to walk yet far enough (and I use far loosely) that you're not bombarded with people everytime you step outside. The beach is beautiful to walk and relax on - although the water is a little murky and the sand a little rocky - water shoes helped fix that and was well worth it as it was much less crowded than most of the other beaches. The pool is fabulous and the outdoor BBQs worked great. I also really liked the fact that there is assigned parking so you never had to worry if you'll find a spot after a long day of being out. This was my second time back to Kihei and I would choose this condo over and over again. Would highly recommend staying here to anyone. Thank you Jim - this was a vacation we will never forget!

Great view.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our short stay at this condo. Wonderful view and great location. Very nice condo. All we needed in kitchen was provided. Plus, close to restaurants and shopping. Great to have a cooler and two beach chairs available to enjoy some time st the beach. To have a parking spot included is certainly a bonus. I definitely would consider using this condo again.

Perfect place in Kiehi

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at several condos at Village By The Sea and this condo is by far the very best! Everything is ideal. The bed is comfy (which is very important) and the shower remodel is brilliant. Hate to step over and into a tub.

Of course the ocean view is amazing and the property is always in tip top shape.

We love the Kiehi location as it is central to the entire island. We would never stay in Lahanai or above as the traffic can be a nightmare.

So if you want the best deal at the perfect location, stay at this condo!

We definitively will be back!!😚�😁�

Kauhale Makai #328

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in the condominium. It was a perfect location as our home base for vacation activities and island travels. The view was spectacular - especially for sunsets and whale watching from the lanai! We enjoyed the property amenities and landscaping and opportunities to meet and talk with other guests at the pool and grounds. The condo decor was lovely and the layout was comfortable. We would definitely stay there again!
