About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sofa Bed. (Sleeps 2-4) 1 Bath

You will love this easily accessible, meticulously maintained Kihei Kai Nani condo. Consider: new kitchen, updated bath with walk-in shower and sparkling accessories. King-size bed that is firm and comfortable. Our condo is fully-equipped with everything you need to enjoy a fantastic Maui vacation. The Wi-Fi signal is strong throughout the unit and allows easy connection to the Net.

We love the fact that as a ground floor unit, our lanai opens onto a green lawn that allows us and our guests to spread out on the grass and enjoy the sun. The lanai and lawn are an "extra room" in our Maui home.

Most important, we have maintained our condo in exceptional condition. It is cleaned carefully after each guest's stay and receives a deep cleaning at least twice each year.

Only one minute's walk down the driveway, we love the Kamaole 2 Beach Park. The beach and water are spectacularly clean and make for great swimming. At Kam 3, only minutes further on, the snorkeling is excellent. It is common to watch sea turtles within feet of the shore as they feed on the seaweed near the point.

Kihei Kai Nani itself is so convenient. Parking is plentiful, free, and convenient to the condo. The large freshwater pool is open all day and into the evening for guests. Shops and restaurants are close at hand, including a well-stocked natural foods grocery and exceptional cinnamon roll bakery.

We have tried in all ways to create the Maui home that we love to visit when we use the condo ourselves. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

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, snorkels, 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.

Great family vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

Dad: First of all, all my family liked the location of the condo very much. It is conveniently located across street of the Kamaole beach II. We had a lot of fun at the beach. Near the condo, there are quite a few restaurants, grocery stores, and ice cream shops. We were delighted to find that the owner of Cones on Kihei Ice Cream, a nice ice cream place near by, was a Guinness world record holder of golf!

We were thankful to Charles, the owner, for providing beach umbrella, chairs, and 3 boogieboards! The boards were the most fun part of my vacation--we used them almost everyday and on the near by beaches.

The condo was clean, with one king size bed and 1 hide-away sofa bed. They were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with many pans, nice plates and utensils. We liked watching TV there at night. We will consider the condo again next time.

Daughter: I like the TV. They had a LOT of different and various channels to view, and there were tiny cute little geckos in the bushes. :) :) :) :) :) There were also a lot of spare blankets, which was super handy. ALSO, they had a HUGE collection of plates, silverware, and even ketchup and many condiments. :) LOVE IT! Also, it was a superb place because there were about 5 beaches in a 1-mile range or so, with 3 right next to our room/condo/place. :) :) I liked the hide-away bed. :)

Outstanding location - next to many shops, restaurants. Lighted crosswalk to beach at end of driveway. No car needed if you've been elsewhere in Maui. Well stocked with array of condiments. Great updated shower. Friendly check in lady. Nice breeze blows thru end unit windows. I hope this place is available next time I get to come to Maui. Highly recommend for peaceful simple stay.

Great location and great value

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our 2 year anniversary. It was overall a great experience. The condo is across the street from a great beach. It’s walking distance to a number of great restaurants, a few bars, and a mile away from a food-land. It’s easy to get to from the airport and is only a 20-30 minute drive.

The condo itself was very clean. The bed was a queen size and pretty comfortable. The condo has a full kitchen and everything you need in regards to household needs. There was plenty of plates, utensils, etc for bigger groups or families. There is also beach chairs, an umbrella, boogy board, etc that are available. There is also a iron and board as well as a TV with cable (you shouldn’t need it). There was no hair dryer so you will have to bring that (my wife).

The condo grounds were very nice. Plenty of parking. There was a pool we didn’t use it so I’m not sure if it’s nice but it looked ok. The laundry facilities are nice, a little expensive, but not bad.

Overall a great condo and highly recommended. Great location, easy access, clean, and the owner was easy to communicate with.

15 Miles
Kahului Airport (OGG)
Car: recommended

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!
