Overview

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.

Perfect spot and so many extras!!! Your search is over!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED staying here and Joy was amazing! We had 7 of us - Grandma and Grandpa, my husband, 3 kids (9,9,12) and me. This place was the perfect set up for us. 2 king beds in each room makes it a bonus! There were so many extras you won't find most places - so many power strips, charging ports, night lights...I could go on. The kitchen was so well stocked (why we love VRBOs - because you don't waste so much - you share!). There was chairs, bags, boogie boards, towels etc. We ended up leaving 2 US Dive kids snorkel sets because ours were happier renting and had grown out of these :). It is clear that Joy takes pride in making this place the best it can be. You will NOT regret staying here. (Side note - we did read and laugh about an entry in the journal "do yourself a favor and kill the rooster day 1" true words!). When we go back to Maui - we will stay here again!

Great condo by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying here with some friends. All three bedrooms were spacious, and the master bedroom included a private lanai and ensuite bathroom. As an added bonus, there was all sorts of beach gear available in the condo for use, including beach umbrellas, chairs, and a boogie board.

Joy was a great host, leaving us some coffee and macadamia nuts as an arrival gift. Would happily stay here again if I find myself in Maui.

Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is fully stocked with everything you will ever need. It is well maintained and clean. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler and a few other water toys. The condo location is great, walking distance to several restaurants, coffee and breakfast shops and bars. Check in and out process was straight forward. Would definitely stay there again!

Amazing time in Maui at Kihei Alii Kai!

  • 5 of 5

Joy was absolutely wonderful to work with! The day we showed up she had just discovered the air conditioner wasn't working and had someone out that same day to fix it. She has set up helpful directions, labels and supplies to make sure when we got there we could just focus on enjoying our vacation. Her unit was clean and comfortable for all 8 of us. We loved how close it was to the beach and the property was maintained very nicely. We spent a lot of time at the beach across the street and preferred it to some of the other ones we visited. The sparkling pool and spa were great for us and our kids to unwind in at the end of each day. I can't wait to spend our next vacation there as well!

Beautiful view with a short walk to an amazing beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo. The location was perfect for our family. Our grown children liked that they could walk to the small shops and food right in front of the condo. My husband and I loved that we could get up and hit the beach first thing in the morning for a snorkel with the turtles! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and beach items such as chairs, umbrella, boogie board and much more are provided if needed. The condo itself is updated and cozy with a beautiful view. We enjoyed the sunset and some star gazing on the lanai. Do be prepared to climb a few flights of stairs, they were not a problem for our family. The pool was nice although our kids thought there were too many rules to follow! We definetly hope to go back soon!

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.
