About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This ground floor, tropical oasis is only steps from the ocean and lies between two beautiful beaches with another protected beach in front. The sunsets and 180 degree ocean views from your lanai are amazing!.

Our well equipped kitchen features sunset and ocean views and even has a cappuccino machine and grinder for your use.

Our updated bathroom features a jacuzzi tub as well as a shower with good water pressure.

We just got a brand new queen sleeper couch in the living room that is very very comfortable and easy to work.

Also just added a new 55" flat screen TV for your viewing pleasure!

Miles of warm, calm, shallow ocean right in front of you make this a great place for those who don't swim well, as well being great for snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking. You can see turtles, dolphins, whales and other interesting sea life. You are also close to great surf spots.

Special amenities are:

1. Large oceanfront lanai with eating and sitting area with great ocean view. Fronting the lanai and before the beach is a smooth, green lawn with chaise lounges for those who want to sunbathe without the sand.

3. Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom.

4. Comfortable bedroom with king size bed and TV for movies and DVD/CD player.

About The Owner

I have been living in Maui for 15 years and loving every one of them! I am a Maui artist working with jewelry and carved stones showing my work twice a month under the banyan tree and inside the Lahaina Arts Society Courthouse Gallery. I've published five books and have also recorded over 18 music and guided imagery CD's. I live upcountry in Haiku where I have a small macadamia nut and tropical flower farm surrounded by palms, ferns, trailing vines, and lush, green, nature. I also spend lots of time at the beach where I love to swim, snorkel and catch waves. When you're visiting, feel free to ask me for recommendations about my favorite places on the island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Kihei

I chose this condo because of it's fabulous location. It's hard to find a condo that's any closer to the ocean than this one is. Not only that, but it's close to all of Kihei's restaurants and entertainment, but well away from it's noise and activity, so you've got the best of two worlds...privacy, peace and quiet with amenities!

What makes this condo unique

I stay at this condo myself when I want to get away from the rain in Haiku. It's almost always warm and dry. Since I love to be in the ocean I especially enjoy being able to just step off my lanai and into the water. I especially like the sunset views and the rooftop deck. There are only two Maui condos that I know of that have the rooftop deck. From here you can see all over the island and it's great for having gatherings. Every evening as the sun sets someone blows a conch shell for the most lovely sunset 'salute.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to begin! First off, Uma wasn't kidding when she said that the pictures don't even do the view justice. These aren't stock photos of a perfect Hawaiian sunset, taken from SOMEWHERE on the island of Maui; they are in fact EXACT pictures taken RIGHT from that Lanai. You could not possibly get any better- we woke to that sunrise and that sunset every day, and we left the island feeling 10 years younger. Uma's place is super clean, super convenient, and comfortable. The house was very well stocked with cooking supplies/utensils, allowing you to dine in in case you didn't want to eat out every meal. This property wasn't lacking in anything, and we were certainly overly satisfied and would recommend her whole-heartedly to future guests. Uma also took the time to suggest nearby gyms, restaurants, and other things that she thought we would enjoy, as well as extending the invitation to meet her at her art shop up the road. All in all, it made for a very personalized, very intimate, very PERFECT father-son trip; I have to say this is the BEST father son trip we've been on- have done Alaska, two other of the Hawaiian islands, etc- but the setup here was ideal for an older guy who didn't want to go up and down stairs to access the water. 62 size 10 steps from being able to drop your cellphone into the water, I'm not kidding you on that. Still gushing about this place, again, would recommend without a second's hesitation.

Clean and cozy condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay here! Thank you for keeping the condo so spotlessly clean. I immediately felt comfortable and made myself at home. The place was so much more beautiful than I had imagined- I think mainly because the pictures for the listing are older and don't show some things like the nice new couches and TV. The kitchen was very well equipped and I cooked most of my meals. Spent most of my time outside, either on the beautiful lanai or out at the beach or pool. The sunset from the condo was just breathtaking. 100% would love to stay here again. It was amazing!

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks for such a great review. I will have to get new pictures! The condo is rarely without people staying there so I will have to wait until June when I have booked it for me and friends! Aloha, Uma

Our Maui Experience

  • 5 of 5

Maui was the 3rd stop on our two-week Hawaii vacation, and it was fabulous way to wrap things up for us. The property was beautiful and the unit was perfect. The beach was uncrowded and allowed for a local feel.

Our host was so gracious and very responsive. It was an amazing visit. Thank you!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a couple, don't have to go far if you want to leave the amazing views. Turtles are in the bay every morning, with only walking about 50 paces. Very well kept.

Great Rental in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Unit 117 at Menehume Shores is outstanding! It is well maintained and has an incredible view of the water. It’s on the first floor and opens out onto a lawn facing the ocean. The kitchen is well equiped. The furniture is nice and the bed is comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this unit and the owner Uma. We will be back!
