Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 48' Smart TV, 1 Bath, Sofa Sleeper, Sleeps 4

Welcome to my modest, tropical island retreat. The charming vacation condo is conveniently located in sunny Kihei, across from a stunning, white sand beach, Kamaole Beach Park II, a short 550 foot walk from the condo front door.

If you are looking for a convenient location, coupled with an affordable price, this is the place to be.

The Kihei Kai Nani condominium complex, which is a magnificently-landscaped, low-rise condominium resort on the leeward, dry side of Maui, is the perfect place for a relaxing and fun packed vacation.

Great for a romantic getaway or fun packed vacation, the designer-decorated interior features cool tile floors, ceiling fans, and a Polynesian theme. Comfortable furnishings from all over the world provide the look and feel of a time gone by in a South Seas haven. Just outside are lush flower gardens and palm trees that are home for colorful tropical songbirds.

The bathroom and kitchen are not modern, but they are clean and functional and the rental price and location make all the difference.

After a day of swimming, surfing, or relaxing on the beach, stroll to the many nearby shops and restaurants. Dine out at over ten locations near by or pick-up groceries without having to get in your car at the local Hawaiian Moon Natural Foods, just a short 352 yards walk from the condo door.

You can prepare your own meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. All of the tools and utensils needed to make the most elegant meals are provided. Several outdoor gas barbecues are available, two just a few feet outside the condo door. Cook at home and enjoy twilight dining on the lanai, a perfect setting to enjoy a tropical evening in paradise.

The large swimming pool with lounging deck nearby (approximately 150 feet) as are paths, parks, and beaches for walking, jogging, and cycling. Secluded beaches for snorkeling and sunbathing are just minutes away, walking and by car, as well as several golf courses such as the world-renowned Wailea Golf Club. To unwind and pamper yourself there is the Wailea Massage and Body Care.

For those who enjoy dramatic scenery Haleakala National Park, Iao Valley State Park, and the breathtaking Hana Highway offer memorable sightseeing, hiking, and exploring. In the winter months humpback whales can be observed frolicking right off of Kamaole Beach Park II, across the street from Kihei Kai Nani.

With the many entertainment opportunities and plentiful natural wonders available on Maui, our comfortable, affordable, convenient tropical retreat is a wonderful destination for a family holiday, a romantic getaway, or physical and spiritual rejuvenation. For your next holiday, please make your reservations with us and let us share our vacation condo with you.

About Melodie Miller

My grandmother took me to Hawaii when I was 10 years old and I fell in love for the first time, with a place. Maui is still my first love and I visit every year.

Melodie Miller purchased this condo in 2003

Why Melodie Miller chose Kihei

The Maui condo is my sanctuary. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The beach across the street is named Kamaole II and is one of the most beautiful spots in the world.

What makes this condo unique

Kihei Kai Nani is a central location on the Island of Maui. It is affordable, quiet and a short walk to the beach.

Owner's Response: Aloha Future Guests: I'm sorry to hear that Richard H. had hoped for a newer condo, but the price and location are excellent, so I find those benefits make a trip to Maui possible for many people who are looking for an economical option. My condo may not be new, but the location and price make it worth it. The condo is professionally cleaned by a Kihei Kai Nani authorized service and I know they work hard to keep it clean and orderly. The soil on Maui is a red clay, that easily transfers as a fine dust onto tile floors and shower grout , carried by the daily winds blowing off the near-by Pacific Ocean. Rust, red dust and bugs are a constant battle on the Island and part of Island life on Maui. The condo complex rules do not allow air conditioning units to be installed in the bedrooms, so there is a very strong fan installed in the ceiling to help keep the room cool, which was available to the guest during his stay. I do my best to keep the condo up to date within my financial budget since I am not a wealthy person, a remodel at this time would not be possible. A remodel would raise the rental rates, which would eliminate the opportunity for many people looking for an economical option to visit Maui. The newly remodeled units on the Island are somewhere upwards of 1.5x - 2x the rate I charge, and the hotels are 3x - 4x my rate, much more expensive than my place during low season, which was the time of this visit. Since my condo is conveniently located and reasonably priced, I think it makes it an all around great opportunity for people traveling to Maui on a budget. I have hopes to remodel some day in the future, without having to raise rental rates. Stay tuned. Mahalo

Quiet, close to the beach, good condo, great price, walk to shopping

  • 5 of 5

The condo is older so if you have to have brand new forget it. That being said of all the places we have stayed this had the best equipped kitchen, we love to cook. There is even a coffee press and bean grinder. The bedroom and living rooms ceiling fans are of great quality. Quiet and no need for the air conditioner and were from Alaska! We loved the floor tile. The furniture was great including the new couch. If you need to watch TV/movies great big flat screen. Great beach chairs. Along with an umbrella, toys for little ones, beach towels. We loved the secure key holder so no keys at the walk to beach. I could go on and on but we will come back enough said. Now for the owner, Melodie. She is great! She was very easy to work with and very quick to respond. In closing check the price, location, amenities, and you will agree this place rocks. Thank you Melodie for sharing your great condo with all who stay.

Delightful and convenient Maui abode!!

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Melodie's Maui condo. It is a wonderful location across from one of the very best beaches in South Maui. Love Kamole Beaches...there are actually 3 within walking distance. Entertainment, a fabulous natural foods store, and local restaurants conveniently located within walking distance or a short drive.

The grounds are very nicely kept up; the Office Manager is great and welcomed me with mangoes from her garden every morning. Such Aloha!

The condo is well furnished with all you could want for a comfortable stay including all kinds of dishes and cooking utensils, beach towels, boogie boards, and beach novels! Be sure to check out the lending library near the pool.

The pool area is very well kept and it is generous size, so you can actually swim short laps!

I am a frequent Maui and Hawaiian island visitor - I even own a library card. I highly recommend this condo for your next Maui island visit.

Unit 267

The location is PERFECT. Unfortunately the couch is totally worn out, and for the price having two 4" foams on top of the mattress is not acceptable.

Owner's Response: Aloha Future Guests, New Sofa sleeper delivered on 4.27.17. Photos to follow. My condo is the best price for the location on Maui. I'm sorry to hear my guest in March was unhappy with the previous sofa. It was only 18 months new, but my guests comfort is very important so I purchased a new hide-a-bed sofa. The foam mentioned in this review was used to add extra cushion to the sofa sleeper, but not required with new sofa, just additional cushion if desired. Mahalo, Melodie Owner

Wouldn't stay here again

  • 1 of 5

Been to Maui (Kihei) 9 times. This has been the most disappointing condo. Air conditioner doesn't work, plug in bathtub doesn't work, hot water lasts 5 min, shower taps are backwards, old furniture, broken floor lamp, overall condo needs updating and maintenance. But I will say kitchen seemed to be well stocked.

Owner's Response: Aloha Future Guests, New Sofa Sleeper delivered on 4.27.17. I'm very sorry to hear guest Sharon S. did not enjoy her 2 nights at my condo. Please know that I am always available to help. I have owned my condo for 14 years and make every effort to keep it affordable for guests and comfortable for your stay. Guest comments are very important to me. My condo at Kihei Kai Nani #267 offers the best price per night in the complex and I look forward to renting to new guests that are looking for a convenient location and a great deal, 150 feet to the beach. I have addressed all comments made by guest Sharon S. 1. The Water Heater temperature has been turned up to provide longer hot water time. 2. The AC has a 30 min timer and shuts off automatically which is not broken, but instead a feature to protect the guests from excessive electrical charges. 3. The condo was built in 1970, and perhaps that is the "why" for the Hot and Cold knobs positioning in the shower. 4. The TV is 18months new. The furniture mentioned are antiques from Asia, professionally decorated by a designer to provide a south-sea feel. The bed and mattress are not antiques, but modern and comfortable. New Sofa Sleeper delivered 4.27.17. Please contact me if you are interested in renting in the future. Mahalo, Melodie Miller Owner
