In the evening sit on the large lanai with a Hawaiian cocktail and watch the sunset, cook on the BBQ just steps from our condo, then head for the pool, sauna or jacuzzi and meet new friends, or head out to one of our favorite places for evening music.

About Elaine or Don

I was raised in Oregon and made my first trip to the islands in 1967. I immediately fell in love with Maui and after many more trips knew I would one day have a 'second home' on Maui, which happened on one of my trips in 1999! My husband and I were married on the beach in front of Mama's Fish House in 2005 and come over every year to enjoy and update our condo. I manage all bookings personally and love talking to my future and especially returning guests. We have made many friends over the years and they 'welcome us home' each time we arrive. They are truly our 'second family'.

Elaine or Don purchased this condo in 99

Why Elaine or Don chose Kihei

I was visiting with friends in 1999 when I started looking for condos and fell in love with C-307 at Kihei Alii Kai. While boarding the airplane to come home, I received a call that the owners accepted my offer and I was going to own 'my condo in paradise'. I have traveled to many places and the people in Hawaii are by far the warmest, most friendly, loving, people I know. We make new friends on every trip.

What makes this condo unique

We love sitting on the lanai, it is very large, nicely furnished and so quiet and peaceful with a lovely view. Since the BBQ is on the same level, we prepare some dinners in. There are many wonderful restaurants close by, and the KAM I beach is so beautiful for walking, snorkeling, and sunning and just 150 feet from the condo. In the evening we enjoy sitting in the Jacuzzi meeting new friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On Wed, Apr 25, 2012 at 9:33 PM,


We had a great time in Maui (after Hope's first day of "I never burn Grandpa" sunburn quit hurting her). We both loved the condo and everything that went with it. I hope to visit Maui again in the near future and staying at the same place would work well with me. I'm sure that after our visit everything was left in as excellent condition as we found it and that my deposit will be refunded as soon as you get the word from the care takers of the property assuring you the same. You have shared with myself and my granddaughter a piece of your paradise, we are grateful and will never forget our wonderful vacation! Thanks!

New 50' HD TV and CD/DVD player. Nice Hawaiian decor. VERY quiet street, sit on Lanai with coffee or your laptop using the free WiFi. Condo kitchen is fully equipped for preparing gourmet entrees, if you chose. Refrigerator has ice maker and there is a blender for your Hawaiian cocktails. There is also a gas BBQ available 25 feet from the front door of the condo and another one by the pool. Check the cupboards for leftover spices, etc. before shopping. Elevator within 10 feet of parking. The tradewinds keep the condo nice and cool, but there is an exceptional air conditioner if needed.


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

  • 5 of 5

We were in Maui for 18 days in may June This was our fourth stay in this condo .

The Condo has everything you need and more The location is just a short walk to the beach and the bbq is just 20ft from the door .

Their is also a large parking lot for your car with easy access The beach furniture supplied was of a very good quality we used it every day The lanai is in the shade and we enjoyed sitting out in the afternoon with a glass of wine We have always the owner Elaine to be very accommodating I would recommend this condo if you are going to Maui Wayne and Lena Vancouver

Noisy bedroom

  • 1 of 5

The bedroom headboard is next to a window that is on a walkway that many people use since this unit is close to the elevator. Their voices are very loud in the bedroom even when these people talk normally. Parents calling after their kids is worst. And of course there is little privacy.

This host is terrible at communications. It took several e-mails and two phone calls on the 2 days before our arrival to finally get the lock box number. Her 4-page contract (which you have to sign) says she will send that information 2-weeks before arrival. She did not do that.

She also charges the credit card fees so be sure to add that $35 to you total cost.

There are many good places to stay in this area of Kihei. We will not be coming back to this place.

Owner's Response: Bob I am sorry you did no enjoy your stay in our condo. When you informed me your wife was in a wheelchair I told you there was an elevator right from the parking lot to my condo and we do have a 10PM quiet time. When we spoke I let you know I would be taking whatever fees Homeaway charged me, for using VISA, out of your deposit., which was for you $35. This is also stated in my contract that I ask all guests to sign. I did goof and didn't send you the lockbox code 2 weeks before and apologized for that mistake. Good idea to try a different complex for your next stay. Elaine

Wonderful stay in Kihei

  • 4 of 5

We love Kihei and visit at least every other year! We were very happy with our stay at Don and Elaine's place! It was perfectly located to all of our favorite places! It had all the amenities that we needed - including beach chairs and an umbrella (things we normally would need to rent). The accommodations were great, and the kitchen was spacious. We were careful not to use the air-conditioning much (since we knew it was expensive), but that made it rather warm at times. We would definitely recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Toni and Brett it was our pleasure to have you as guests in our condo and we hope you will be back next year. I am happy you found that we still had many "beach toys" there for your use and pleasure. Thank you for choosing our condo. Elaine and Don

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for our daughter and her family who were visiting from Sweden. The condo worked very well for young children. It was clean and well-equipped. It is set back off the busy street, yet within walking distance of the beach and restaurants. We had a wonderful time.

Car: recommended

Kihei is located in the chosen area of fine restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, evening entertainment, plus 150 feet from one of the “top rated worlds finest white sand beaches in Hawaii”. A 10 minute drive South takes you to Wailea where there are “world class” shops such as Tommy Bahamas, restaurants include Cheeseburger in Paradise, Ruth Criss Steak House, one of our favorites for entertainment is Mulligan's on the Blue, and many art galleries with original Artists on site. Continuing on are fabulous snorkeling, ocean kayaking and mega beaches to die for. The 'crowded resorts' of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua are a 45 minute drive North or there is a metro bus that will take you there. The Majestic Haleakala is a 2 hour drive or you can stop in the quaint little town of Paia on your way to Hana, where there are black sand beaches, water caves, bamboo forests, numerous waterfalls, all ending at the 7 Sacred Pools where you can take a dip before starting your trek back to the condo. So much to do, so little time
