About the property

Spacious 3BR/2BA Condominium With Ocean And Mountain Views

Our spacious, airy, cathedral-ceilinged condo is centrally located in the town of Kihei, in sunny South Maui. It's in a great location, 200 yards to Kamaole I Beach Park, and within walking distance of many activities and restaurants. A rental car is not necessary, but by all means get one if you want to explore farther afield.

PLEASE NOTE: Our condo is NOT wheelchair accessible, and access may be difficult for anyone with mobility limitations. There is an elevator to the fourth floor, but you also must climb a flight of 9 steps to get to the elevator, plus 3 sets of 6 steps (a total of 27 steps, divided over 4 stairways) to get to our front door, because of the unique way the complex is terraced up a hillside. Once inside our condo, the only stairs are from the great room to the loft.

The condo is a roomy 1145 sq. ft, plus two lanais with ocean and mountain views. The large main lanai opens from the great room (living room/ kitchen/ loft); it has a dining table and seating for eight people. The second, secluded lanai opens from the master bedroom.

There are two private bedrooms. Each has air conditioning, ceiling fan, king size bed, large window, and large closet. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and the second bedroom is next to the hall bathroom. The third bedroom is an open loft over the great room (living room and kitchen). It has air conditioning, a full-height ceiling, a full size bed, a twin-over-twin trundle bed, and a flat-screen LCD TV. It is accessed via a straight flight of 12 carpeted stairs. The living room also has a queen size sleeper sofa.

There are two recently-remodeled full bathrooms with granite counters and travertine marble tiles. One bathroom is en suite to the master bedroom, with a large vanity and separate room with toilet and double-size shower stall. The second bathroom is in the hall adjacent to the second bedroom, and includes a full tub/shower combo.

There is air conditioning in each bedroom and the great room/loft; a well-equipped kitchen; full size clothes washer and dryer in the unit; all bedding/linens, bath and beach towels; free, secure Wi-Fi internet; three flat-panel TV's with cable; three iPod dock/radios; and a home phone with unlimited calling to the US, Canada, Mexico, and US territories (Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Northern Marianas/Guam, American Samoa).

The grounds include a pool, hot tub, sauna, two tennis courts, two gas grill-equipped BBQ areas with picnic tables, lush landscaping, and free parking.

The complex does not allow pets.

Our condo unit is completely non-smoking, including the lanais. In the condo complex, all of the common areas/public areas are non-smoking, except for two designated smoking benches, one in each parking lot.

The condo association enforces 'quiet hours' between 10 PM and 8 AM, which makes for very peaceful evenings - a good thing, since there are so many available daytime activities, you'll want to be well-rested!

I invite you to check out my other Maui vacation rental condo, located at Wailea Ekolu Village, HomeAway/VRBO Property ID #4361387.

About Joy Faber

After 17 years of vacationing in Kihei, we finally took the plunge and bought our condo in April, 2014! My husband and I hope you will love this place as much as we do.

Joy Faber purchased this condo in 2014

Why Joy Faber chose South Maui

The location is great, the complex is well-maintained, the view is phenomenal, the neighbors are nice, and the spacious and airy feel of the condo is unique. The fact that it has two lanais, and the main one is much larger than the usual, is a bonus.

Joy has done a great job with the condo by adding central air and having plenty of beach accessories (chairs, umbrellas, cart, toys, and towels). The condo is well-supplied and very clean upon arrival. Joy is a pleasure to rent from - fair, quick replies to any emails, and super accommodating! We've rented twice from Joy and whenever we go to Maui, this condo is where we will stay!

Perfect location, perfect host!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough positive things about renting this condo and working with Joy! From the start of making arrangements she has been helpful and quick to respond. We walked in the door to a perfectly situated condo for our 4 adults and 4 children. She has thought of EVERYTHING! All the accoutrements needed for a beach vacation and a stay in a home - beach towels, portable umbrella, beach chairs, tote bags, tennis rackets, etc. were among the many things in the "beach" closet. Everything is clearly labeled in the condo so it is easy to navigate. We had four kids in the loft, which was cool and comfortable with plenty of room for all four (we didn't have any issues with not having a bathroom up in the loft contrary to the comments of another reviewer). Whenever we had questions, Joy responded quickly. The photos simply do not do justice to either the home or the view. We were delighted to be so close to a beautiful beach (just a block away), close to locally owned businesses and restaurants and to have a good location for sightseeing trips. There are quite a few stairs, but we took that as an opportunity to walk off all the shave ice we ate from Maui Gelato down the hill! Like many others have commented, there is a rooster in the tree-filled lot next door, but I defy you to find any place in Maui without roosters crowing!! It's a thing - we found it charming. Whenever we came back to the condo, it felt like home. Truly a fantastic vacation - we would come back to this condo in a heartbeat!

Perfect place for a larger family to stay... beds were super comfy, decks are gorgeous and very close to the beach and stores. We don't want to leave but if we are ever back in Hawaii we will book this condo again!

Kamaole I
Car: recommended

Walk to beautiful Kamaole I ('Kam I') beach, just at the end of the condo complex driveway. It's a golden sand beach that usually has gentle waves, especially in the mornings before the afternoon trade winds; it's great for swimming and snorkeling, or try stand-up-paddling (SUP) or surfing. Go scuba diving in the calm waters inside Molokini Crater or the wilder waters on its back wall; you'll spot sea turtles and many fish that are endemic to Hawaii. Watch the sunrise atop Mt. Haleakala, then bicycle downhill with a local tour operator. Drive the Heavenly Road to Hana with its famous waterfalls and one-lane bridges. Go shopping in Kihei or the nearby towns of Wailea, Paia, Makawao or Lahaina. Take in a luau. Go on a winery tour and sample the sweet local pineapple wine. Visit the Sugar Museum, O'o Farm, Surfing Goat Dairy, or the lavender farm. See Iao Valley and its famous Needle. Go zip-lining. Maybe even just relax in the pool or hot tub - you will never run out of things to do! And after you've watched the sun set from your lanai or from Kam I beach, walk to numerous restaurants and bars for a well-earned dinner and a cool libation.
