Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This Menehune Shores Condo is unit #620 and is an oceanfront/oceanview penthouse, which has 880 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom is on the oceanside of the building and has a King-size bed. The second bedroom has a Queen bed plus a pull out twin trundle and there is a sofa bed in the living room. Towels and linens are provided. Since it is a penthouse condo, it has higher ceilings (than the lower units) which provides a very spacious feeling. All rooms have ceiling fans.

The kitchen has all the amenities including microwave, cookware, coffeemaker, and dishwasher. The dining area is between the kitchen and the living room. For your entertainment there is a 55 inch LED TV with cable and Blue Ray & DVD player in the living room. There ia also a 46 inch LCD TV with Cable in the master bedroom as well as a 20 in LCD TV in the second bedroom with DVD player only (no cable or broadcast). There is a washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.

There is a spectacular view of the ocean and shoreline from the lanai (outside balcony). The view includes the southwestern slopes of Haleakala Crater, three islands, and possibly humpback whales swimming along Maui’s western coast between the months of December and May.

The grounds at Menehune Shores are well kept and the complex has elevators and a roof-top garden that is complete with barbecues, picnic tables, and lounge chairs. The heated, oceanside pool has an additional seaside barbecue area and is adjacent to the ancient Hawaiian fish pond which forms a great protected swim and snorkel opportunity.

The Hawaiian Humpback Whale Sanctuary is our immediate neighbor and information on the seasonal whale population can be obtained there. It is also a great place to view the leaping, blowing mammals that visit us each year to give birth in the warm waters.

This beautiful condo is centrally located for easy access to all activities on the 'Valley Isle'. The front yard is six miles of pristine beach to run, walk and explore, true Maui style. There are six world-class golf courses a short drive from Menehune Shores. The Pacific Ocean Center Aquarium, where you can view the ocean's inhabitants through a walk-through glass tunnel, is a few minutes up the road on the way to the old whaling port of Lahaina. The exclusive hotels and shops of Wailea are just south of Kihei.

You will find a stay in this condo to be a better value than in an expensive hotel! Please See Calendar for Available Dates.

Why The Owner chose South Maui

We have traveled all over the world, however, we keep coming back to Maui. After about 10 trips to Maui, we decide this is the place we really want to be.

What makes this condo unique

We bought the property in June of 2011, while in Maui. I wanted to make it tropical and homey. I outfitted the kitchen as I would of if I was living there, and I love to cook, so I am constantly buying new items for the condo. We have collected a wide variety of staples that reside in the condo. We like to encourage our guests to use them, and feel free to leave your left overs for the next guest.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I were married in Maui and spent our 1st & 2nd Honeymoons at Bob's place at Menehune Shores. Truly an Ocean View Paradise! The bedroom and lanai overlook the beautiful ocean - great for whale watching & walks along the beach! The condo has been currently upgraded with new furniture throughout and is absolutely beautiful and immaculate. The very nicely well-equipped kitchen is a huge plus. The owner Bob is very helpful and accommodating and was very helpful in suggesting some wonderful fun activities - Old Lahaina Lua, Mama's Fish House and the Maui Theatre play U'lalena in Lahaina, and Kamaole Beaches are among our favorites. I would highly recommend this property to my closest friends & family and anyone else who would enjoy a prime location in Maui. We were just back home for a couple of weeks and already booking our next flight to return. Truly I cannot say enough about this wonderful condo. Mahalo Bob for providing a true Hawaiian Paradise for us to enjoy. Aloha Rick & Karen

Beautiful beachfront condo with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved this place! We walked in and headed straight for the lanai. The view is breathtaking! The beach was right outside our window, and it was beautiful. Other than sleeping, we spent more time on the lanai than inside the condo itself. We ate breakfast on the lanai and watched the moon glowing over the ocean at night. The next best thing to taking in the view from the lanai was falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean. Loved it!

The condo itself is very nice and well stocked with basic necessities. There are TVs in each room. Our 17-year old slept on the hide-a-bed and said it was very comfortable. Decorations are cute and the kitchen is nice! The pool is a welcome break from the sand on the beach when the wind picks up. The rooftop view is lovely! Definitely a fun place to bbq the steaks we picked up from Costco! The location is excellent, so that no matter which direction you are heading, you don't have far to drive.

A few of our favorite places: The ABC store - save your receipts because once you spent $100, you get a free mug. Ululani's Shave Ice - now I'm not a big snow cone fan, but this is different and SO good! The flavors are made from fresh pureed fruit. I highly recommend the coconut mango passion fruit shaved ice with coconut ice cream on bottom. Definitely deserves an 'ono! Kihei Caffe for breakfast is soooo good. Cash only, so come prepared! Our family of 5 spent $70 on breakfast there. Bodyboarding was best at Kamaole Beach 3. Great waves, lots of fun and sometimes turtles will swim by! The 808 Deli had great sandwiches. Monkeypod Kitchen is a tasty place for dinner. And for a special date night, 5 Palms is a great place for dessert at sunset! Their creme brulet is served in a pineapple and the lava cake is oh so good! One of the best burgers we have ever tasted was in Lahaina at the Cool Cats Cafe. We enjoyed walking the grounds of the Grand Wailea at sunset. It was spectacular! Can hardly wait to plan our next visit!

Magic location, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 days here in July. Plenty of space for a family of 4 with older kids. Hired a car at the airport and found it pretty easily. Picked Kihei because of the central location - easy to explore both halves of the island from here. Awesome spot! Top floor views over a beautifully kept grassland to a lovely sandy beach, fishing pool, and swimming pool on the other side of the building. Weather was great. The wind would come up in the afternoon, and then settle again for a peaceful sunset. Walking into the flat is a little like walking into the past - in a good way! It's old fashioned Island style decor, a little kitschy but kind of delightful. And it has so much going for it. I can't think of anything we needed that it didn't have. The kitchen was fully stocked, every gadget and pantry staple on hand, and you'd be hard pressed to ever run out of spices! The appliances were to die for, better than I have at home. Washing powder, beach towels, umbrella, heaps of stuff for younger kids for beach going. Not many shops are actually within walking distance, but everything is just 5 mins away in the car. There is an interesting looking Indian restaurant downstairs which we didn't get to try out. All in all, so glad we found this place. You get the idea it's the owners' pride and joy, and we loved the opportunity to holiday here.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 3 of 5

We had an awesome time in Kihei in this condo. The pool was really nice especially when it gets super windy in the afternoons. The beach is nice and mellow with some wild life close by the shore. The only draw back for us was the heat and we had to have all the windows open so it was a bit noisey, a little hard to sleep this way. Great location! Close to everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Sharon, So glad you had an awesome time in our condo. We love to see and hear the wildlife as well. We can actually watch the whales from the lanai during whale season. I am sorry you found it noisy at night with the windows open. The condo association and full time residents enforce quiet hours between 10pm and 8am. Generally all we hear at night are the waves crashing and the birds singing in the early morning.

A very nice place, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very pleasant, restful, and just plain fun. The condo is equipped with everything you need and the sleeping accommodations are very good. The view from the lanai and master bedroom are breathtaking. The afternoon winds provide a fresh breeze throughout the condo. We definitely plan on going again. For our family it was perfect!

Wonderful Island Paradise in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Chris & Randy for the absolutely wonderful time we had at your condo in Maui during the month of May 2017. We've been returning to this condo - Menehune 620 for many years and it just keeps getting better - The kitchen upgrade is beautiful - everything you could possibly need. The view from the lanai and and master bedroom are stunning. All the comforts of home, plus the sound of the ocean waves lulling you to sleep each night. It really doesn't get any better than this folks. I would highly recommend this condo to all family, friends or anyone looking for one of the best locations to stay on Maui. Aloha & Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Glad you had such a good time at our piece of paradise. We are so happy to have you as repeat guests. We welcome you to stay with us again! We are very proud of the kitchen. We did it in a little under 3 weeks. Replaced floors, cabinets, all of the appliances, added spice racks, and added the new lighting.
