About Charles Emmons
We love Maui! For more than twenty years, my wife Merrie and I have enjoyed the wonderful air and beautiful beaches of Kihei. Since we met on Oahu in the '50s, we have considered Hawaii and Maui specifically our second home. I am retired and spend my time supporting my family and Merrie in her many projects helping people in our town. In my spare time, I often play the ukelele and have recorded over 50 songs -- many about the beauty and the life on Maui. I would love to have a chance to share my music with you!
Charles Emmons purchased this Condo in 1983
Why Charles Emmons chose Kihei
We first visited Kihei Kai Nani more than twenty years ago. It was so lovely, so relaxing. The next year we returned and decided to invest in a little piece of Paradise ourselves. We think you will love our condo. It is bright, clean, and fresh. As an end-unit in our building, its extra windows bring in wonderful light and soft Hawaiian air. It makes a fantastic place to relax and enjoy oneself any time of day -- but especially after a great day at the beach!
What makes this Condo unique
Wild and colorful birds visit us each morning while we breakfast on the lanai with fresh papaya, lime juice, toast and coffee. At night we can hear the ocean. The condo has everything to enjoy the beach: beach chairs, mats, beach towels, and more. Restaurants and shops are close by. We often enjoy stopping for drinks in the evening at the larger hotels, and it is easy to take in performances at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in Kahalui.

Very Disappointed - Would not recommend to this condo
This location is totally misrepresented. When we booked this condo, we specifically asked if it was on the ground level as it states, as we have a family member with a heart condition and cannot do stairs. We were told this would not be a problem as the condo is on the ground level and it will be perfect for what we need.
This condo is NOT on the ground level, you must go up 27 stairs to get to that ground level.
Upon arrival the key would not work, we contacted the emergency number, and the lady was very irritated she needed to come let us in.
We made several attempts to contact the owner regarding the stairs, all his emails were returned and we had to contact VRBO to get in touch with him. His response was you can cancel. He did however, arrange with the office for a wheelchair. Of course there is no code approved handicap ramp, so the wheelchair was little help. There was no vacancy in Kihei and we were not guaranteed he would refund us. Which now after requesting a refund and being totally refused, I realized we would have lost our money.
It is advertised new remodeled bathroom, the towel racks were coming off the wall. It is also advertised the preference of a/c is ceiling fans, this is true, of course they do not work very well and it is so tremendously hot you could not even stay in the condo and relax. It is advertised with washer and dryer, these are not in the condo they are down in the complex facility. It is however nicely located with a short walk to the beach.
My mother is from the islands, this was her last trip home and it was a horrible experience, to which the owner of this condo did not care in the slightest. When I contacted him upon our return home, I was told my mother was a liar, she did not speak to anyone regarding the handicap accessibility and it was our own fault we rented his condo. He in no way took any responsibility and very unprofessional.
He is very willing to accommodate at the time of scheduling and responds to all emails, until after you book and arrive, then you are on your own.
VERY DISAPPOINTED and would not recommend this condo to anyone.
I regret that your mother's heart condition did not allow her to enjoy her visit to Maui; but your characterization of our condo and of my response to your situation is neither accurate nor fair.
First, to be clear, the condo is located on the ground floor of Building 8 at Kihei Kai Nani. It is approachable by a sloping walkway without any steps (designed to help guests with rolling suitcases) on the right side of the building and by two sets of stairs on the left side of the building. In total, the approach on the left side of Building 8 involves 14 steps that lead to the condo front door. If a guest chooses to use the sloping path, it is not necessary to climb any steps at all. Because the path I describe is not ADA compliant, I have clearly designated on our VRBO site that the condo is NOT wheelchair accessible.
My wife and I and our condo partner have always maintained our condo at a high standard, which has been appreciated by many, many of our guests -- as noted in their many positive comments.
If you and your mother had used the VRBO.com communication system, I would have responded immediately, which is my practice. I did not receive an email from you prior to or during your visit.
When I did learn about your mother's inability to walk up the path to the condo entrance through a phone call from our local representative, I arranged for the office to support your mother as well as they could. They responded immediately by providing a wheelchair without charge.
Again, I regret your mother's health did not allow her to enjoy her visit to the island; but I believe that our condo is well represented on the VRBO.com website; and we will continue to welcome guests to our Kihei home, so that they can enjoy its proximity to the beaches and wonderful ambiance as much as we do.

Our first time on Maui.
Loved the condo and location. Everything we needed in the condo and for the beach.
Perfect. Thank you
Very spacious and comfortable. Perfect for our family. Thanks Chuck, Jack and family.
Great place to stay with the ocean across the street, so many shops and food places in walking distance. Place was perfect for me and my 2 friends! Would definitely stay again and recommend to those considering :)
1st time VRBO
Usually I think you get what you pay for but for the price I paid for this thing it was absolutely astonished Lee and lazy beautiful location beautiful facility beautiful condo . The kitchen even had condiments which meant all I really needed to bring with the basics. I would definitely come here again
We are located in Building 8 of Kihei Kai Nani, a comfortable and convenient condo complex in relaxed South Kihei. From our lanai, the fantastic swimming at Kamaole Two Beach Park is no more than two minutes' walk away. Snorkeling is excellent. Restaurants and shops are close at hand, including The Cinnamon Roll Place, where one can pick up fabulous macadamia nut encrusted cinnamon rolls any morning of the week and walk home to enjoy them with the morning coffee. All of Maui is easily available from this location. Parking is free immediately in front of the condo, and we enjoy a strong wifi signal throughout the unit. Make this your home base for a visit to Maui!
