About the property

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

Steps to the beach from this clean, efficient 1 bdrm condo. You can watch the sun set into ocean from the lanai. Stroll next door to the BYOB Bistro 808 after a day on the beach and a dip in the pool.

You can pack just your carry-on luggage! With a washer/dryer, boogie boards, masks, snorkels, beach chairs, and portable coolers provided, you don't need to bring anything else. We've even got beach reading for those 1-99 tucked on the shelf.

It has been recently renovated and equipped with things that are important to us: comfortable beds with good sheets, functional kitchen for cooks (sharp knives included!), double paned windows in the bedroom for quiet nights, lots of beach gear (even a sea kayak is available for a little extra), books, board games, & movies. Wifi available.

We've got lots of repeat guests, so be sure to book today!

Our condo is located in building two.

About Carolyn Hornell

We are a young family of 4 from North Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Warren is a heavy duty mechanic, Carolyn is a marketing manager for a community college, Jacob is 13, and Piper is 10.

We all love the water and all the weird and wonderful things living in it!

Carolyn Hornell purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carolyn Hornell chose Kihei

We are lucky enough to come to Maui a couple of times each year, often with Granna and Poppa who stay nearby in Wailea.

It's affordable for young families and couples on a budget, and still offers first class beaches and activities.

We love the fact that everything is so close by!

What makes this condo unique

What we love about our unit is that you can sit on the lanai and see the ocean, even after the kids go to bed! Kids can play on the grass out front while we enjoy a couple of drinks either before or after dinner.

Carolyn also loves that it is super clean and easy to keep that way!

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. It is located steps away from a world class beach and some of the best restaurants on Maui. I would highly recommend you book this place!

Beautiful, clean spot located in the heart of Kihei.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved staying at Carolyn's place at Kihei Kai Nani. I was doing a clinical rotation there for 2 months and I could not have picked a better place to stay at. The apartment was extremely clean when I arrived. Everything was available to use, including: multiple beach chairs, snorkel equipment, pool noodles, body boards, beach towels, movies, books, and much more. The bed was extremely comfortable. The location of Kihei Kai Nani, could not be better. It is perfectly centralized near many restaurants and bars, and has Kameole 2 beach right across the street. Has many shops nearby as well. The management office is extremely helpful whenever needed; they were fast and efficient. I would stay here again without a doubt; I highly recommend it!

paradise that is practically perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little piece of paradise! everything was so comfortable and accessible- we had a lovely beach view for breakfast outside - ground floor can't be beat! Would love to see wifi added but the Denny's next door does have wifi for those in need as we were from time to time. Perfectly appointed place in every other way and a pleasure to deal with the owners to make the arrangements. Highly recommended. Do expect a bit of traffic noise (it's Kihei) - not a lot - and it didn't bother us at all.

My bride (of 32 months) and I stayed here from 9/9 to 9/16. Over the years I've stayed a many condos both in Kihei and West Maui. Well this time I was pleasantly surprised. Most condo owner seem to furnish their rental units with left-over furniture from Grandma basement, dishes from thrift stores and towels and bedding from home( worn out) and fry pans and pots that are warped. But Carolyn and Warren have changed all that! After 23 hours of travel time we arrive bushed and crashed into the most comfortable bed on the island. Not only was it a comfortable, thick bed BUT it was coved in soft high thread count bedding. The kitchen was fully equipped with high quality dishes, pots and pans and cutlery. Everything thing we needed was there and more. The living room and dining room furniture are great.Bonus was a new washer and dryer, microwave and 2 air conditioners. This home was SPOTLESS! We were so happy with this home that we are coming back here in Nov. for 14 days. The biggest advantage for us is the fact that we are within walking distance to our favorite restaurants (Cafe O'lea, Moose, Freds, 808 Bistro and Cinnamon Fair) across the street from a great beach and a pool that holds more than 8 people at a time.Can't wait till we get back Pastor Tony and Aurelia

In the heart of Kihei, everything is at your fingertips. Great restaurants (many BYOB with live entertainment), activity centers, fantastic snorkeling and boogy-boarding beaches, babysitting services, yoga on the beach, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, whale watching, etc.. I recommend a car so you can get around the island at your leisure, but there is a local bus service with pick up outside your door so you can run for the heavy groceries without a car if you need to.
