About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)


On the sunny side of Maui, our beachfront, one bedroom (sleeps 4), ocean view (From both the lanai and the bedroom) condo is right on the longest stretch of beach on Maui. This is four miles of uninterrupted beach, much of which is undeveloped and borders reserve and turtle nesting areas. There are no scary roads to cross to get there! It is a wonderful beach for walking and mellow for swimming and snorkeling as the reef protects the beach from most surf. A short snorkel out reveals colorful fish and sea turtles. Kihei Kai is a small, intimate complex on a cul de sac. The tropical landscaping is beautiful and the pool remodeled. There is a lovely grass area in front of the beach with grill, dining tables and reclining chairs. This is great for viewing the spectacular sunsets and watching the stars at night. In the winter, this is a whale birthing area, and you can watch whales frolic to your heart’s content!


Kihei Kai offers the ultimate in convenience, just fifteen minutes from the airport and the kite and wind surfing beaches, twelve minutes from Wailea with the famous Shops of Wailea and multiple world class beaches, walking distance to the farmer’s market for your produce (it’s open all day on weekdays and has the yummy tropical fruits) and the ABC store, and a short walk down the beach to Massage Maui, a sandwich bar and general store. Iao Valley with spectacular mountain vistas, whirlpool streams and hiking trails is only fifteen minutes away. In just 25 minutes, you are in the heart of Lahaina galleries and night life. The location also makes the drive up Haleakala Crater and the road to Hana more accessible than if you stayed in West Maui or further south.


Our 2nd floor unit has ocean views from both the large lanai and the bedroom. Mellow, lapping waves will sooth you to sleep in ultimate comfort on the Serta Perfect Sleeper Royal Comfort Plush California King Bed with high thread count sheets. This is the same quality bed the 5 star hotels, including Four Seasons use. It’s not too hard, not too soft—JUST RIGHT! We supply ultra plush towels. The condo is renovated and updated with Medeira Gold granite counter tops and tile flooring in the kichen and bath and high quality carpet in the bedroom and living room. The kitchen has an under mount sink for maximum cleanliness. The fully stocked kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances with a four burner smooth top range, dishwasher & microwave. The living room has a queen sleeper sofa as well as a Tommy Bahama secretary desk. The bedroom set is solid mahogany and you look at the ocean from the bed. With plentiful trade breezes you will rarely need it, yet there is AC in both the bedroom and living room. Laundry is close and Coin Operated. There is a safe for your valuables and laptops.


For your entertainment we have a state of the art Samsung 46” flat screen TV which not only has cable, it has internet video which can access sites such as Netflix and Blockbuster, Facebook, and the Pandora Music site. You can play Blue Ray, DVD’s, CD’s, select your favorite music, even design your own playlists. The unit has phone with free long distance for the US and Canada. There is high speed internet as well.


My husband, Chip, was the general manager of Stag Lodge, a ski in ski out resort in Deer Valley (near Park City Utah) for 12 years. We pay attention to detail and assure the highest standards of cleanliness.


We supply beach towels, a beach umbrella, two sets of adjustable snorkel gear, beach bag, two light weight folding beach chairs, and a portable play pen and baby booster seat and beach toys for your sand castles.

Charlotte McLaughlin purchased this condo in 2010

Why Charlotte McLaughlin chose South Maui

Sugar Beach is a sweet beach, with ample space for long walks, reflection and privacy. I like the intimacy and caring, friendly atmosphere of Kihei Kai.

What makes this condo unique

I love the sound of the ocean from the unit. I also love movies and the entertainment center is better than the one at our house! There's nothing like being able to walk about 50 feet to the beach for a sunrise stroll, a dip, sunset or stars.

Dream Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This property is only 10 miles from the airport, right on the ocean and only a 5 minute walk to the closest convenience store. In celebration of our 5th Anniversary, we wanted to visit Hawaii for the first time and make it as special as possible. We couldn't have picked any better place. The condo is cute and clean with all modern amenities, but what we liked best was sitting on the balcony and watching the sun set, and listening to the waves roll onto the beach. Our trip was unforgettable - truly a dream vacation! Thank you, Chip and Charlotte, for offering such a great place.

Everything You Need

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect location. Been to Maui numerous times and have always stayed on the Lahaina/Kaanapali side. Kihei is the best and will be our destination for future trips. Very relaxed, quiet, and it's like having your own personal beach. No crowds, yet central to shopping, food and entertainment. The Unit is everything you could ask for. Clean and quiet. The only noise you hear is the waves hitting the shore at night. Just perfect.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week stay at #12! The condo was very well appointed and the little extras like snorkelling gear, beach chairs etc. were very much appreciated. We loved the relaxed and friendly atmosphere at this little piece of paradise and looked forward to sitting on the front lawn each evening to watch the sunset. The location is perfect with miles of uncrowded beaches to walk and being right on the beach was great for swimming. After looking at other places in Kihei and Wailea, we are so thrilled to have found this nice, quiet area away from all the hustle and bustle. The owners were great to work with! We will be back!

The property is true to description. Can't beat the area. Right on the sandy part of the beach. Kind of private bc there's not a lot of public parking spaces around so the beach is not crowded. The bed is super comfy. Clean. It is an upstairs unit and there is no elevator. No problem for us but if u have a lot of big suitcases that could be a little bit of a workout. Communication with the owner is excellent! They're very helpful and fast responding. The neighbors are nice and quiet. Definitely not a party place which we Loved! There's no designated parking for the unit but there's plenty of parking spaces so we never had any issues. There's a small pool but nobody go to the pool so it's never crowded there either. There's beach towels and chairs and boogie boards provided with the unit. No washer/dryer in the unit but we brought plenty of clothes so that's not an issue for us. There is 2 AC unit one in the bedroom and 1 in the living room. It's a nice feature to have since the unit can get a little warm during the day when there's no wind coming thru the condo. Overall we truly enjoyed our stay and wish we didn't have to leave. Thanks for having us and we'll definitely recommend your place to our friends/family.

Great location with a nice quiet beach.

  • 4 of 5

This property has everything you need to have a great vacation in Maui. Located on the north end of Kihei, all parts of Maui are quickly accessed from here.

There aren't many units in this complex which means you have the beach to yourself most days. Fortunately Chip and Charlotte provide beach chairs, beach towels and an umbrella to make your beach time more enjoyable.

The only thing I would improve is the pillows which weren't the most comfortable. Other than that, this is a great beachfront condo and would definitely go back.
