About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Aloha to paradise. Our unit A204, is considered to be one of the finest locations within the complex with a direct ocean view! Can you imagine yourself having breakfast out on a large lanai while enjoying that fabulous ocean view! The boats pass by on their way to Molokini for a snorkeling adventure. The whales, when in season, are also viewable from our Lanai.

We have upgraded our kitchen with granite counter tops with a tumbled marble back splash. All Whirlpool appliances make cooking and cleaning an ease should you desire to do so. We have just completed the remodeling of our upstairs bathroom. A walk in shower with a tropical glass pane. New vanity, fixtures, mirror and tiled floor. We have just purchased a new couch, 3 chairs, turtle cocktail table, and end tables to enhance the tropical atmosphere. We also just installed hardwood bamboo floors in the upstairs bedroom and built a 1/2 wall with louver doors for more privacy and ease of use. We recently upgraded our AC units that are whisper quiet and resort quality.

Maui Kamaole is a low density complex on 23 acres of one of the most beautiful tropical gardens in all of Maui. It is considered to be one of Maui's premier condominium luxury resorts.

Our unit is situated on a small hill across the road from Kamaole III Beach, one of Maui's finest beaches for all water activities. It is a great family beach. There are two swimming pools and hot tubs along with two tennis courts. It is a very quiet complex away from the usual noise.

Our non-smoking unit is a generous two bedroom, two bath, 1052 square feet. It also has three lanai's for an additional 225 square feet. The downstairs bedroom has two twin beds, that can be pushed together if desired. The upstairs bedroom has a California King with a full private bathroom. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room, queen size with sheets and pillows in the linen closet.

There are six ceiling fans, along with three air conditioners. However, with both lanai doors open the ocean breezes generally keep the unit quite cool!

About Jack Goodwin

Karen and I purchased this property in hopes of retiring in Maui for at least 3 or 4 months out of the year in the near future. We have been coming to the islands for over 30 years and Maui of course is our favorite. We feel it has everything we need to relax and yet there is still plenty to do to keep us entertained! We love to walk the beaches in the morning, and in the evening have a glass of wine on the beach or on our Lanai to watch the sunset.

Jack Goodwin purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jack Goodwin chose Kihei

We looked at numerous properties before deciding on South Maui and Maui Kamaole in particular. We wanted something very tropical and spacious, so Maui Kamaole fit the bill perfectly. We consider our location as one of the best in the complex, because we sit up on a small hill with a direct ocean view with little to no noise from South Kihei road or the pool areas. Yet we are a quick 1 minute walk to the main pool and a 3 minute walk to Kam III beach. The boat ramp is very convenient for snorkeling adventures.

What makes this condo unique

A204 is an end unit, so we only have 1 neighbor to our left and nobody above us. It is a very peaceful location. The beaches in South Maui are not nearly as crowded and the snorkeling is great just about all times of the year. We are close to the grocery stores and restaurants, yet far enough way that we don't get the congestion. We are just across from KAM III beach, which is regarded as the best family beach anywhere. (Boogie boarding, snorkel, tide pools, swimming)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful condo. Our daughter was married just down the road on a gorgeous beach. The groom and his parents stayed in the unit across the hall, which was also a great place to stay. We had a good time with the beach toys, took the Pacific Whale snorkel cruise and the drove the road to Hana. The wedding supper was at Sorrento's on the beach, just a short walk from the condo.

The apartment is positioned directly across the road from the ocean and has a spectacular view from the main lanai. We could sit on our lanai and spot whales swimming by, how amazing is that!

The apartment is very clean, spacious, and every comfort of home is provided. The space was perfect for our family with two young boys. The relaxed tropical decor is very welcoming and the apartment complex is beautifully maintained.

The apartment is close to great beaches, Kamaole 3 being the closest where we swam with turtles and the kids enjoyed the use of the boogie boards provided by the accommodation. It was a gorgeous spot to enjoy a sunset beach picnic! The apartment is also close to shops and to some great restaurants, both in Kihei and Wailea.

We had such a fabulous time here and would love to return. It was our honeymoon so perhaps we can plan an anniversary trip in a few years!

Jack was very prompt with communication and super helpful with recommendations. We had clear instructions on how to find the apartment and how to gain access.

We are now back in Sydney and dreaming of Maui!

Sending our thanks and best wishes.

Great accommodation in kihei.

  • 5 of 5

Great views from the lanai. Nicely decorated in a good development. Comfortable for up to 4 people. Some minor repairs would make it that much nicer. Well supplied with beach gear and entertainment with good Wi-Fi. A great break in spite of heavy rain showers this time. We will come back.

Paradise on Earth!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at Maui Kamaole, and our second time to rent this amazing unit A204. We would have rented it on all three visits, but it was not available during one of our trips. We plan to return next year with our family, and hope we can once again secure this unit. The ocean front view is amazing and the decor is elegant, yet "beachy". The air conditioning units are new and are whisper quiet. There are just too many wonderful things to say about this unit, this complex and this location in South Kihei, bordering Wailea. The owners are easy to communicate with and responded to our emails within hours (quite a feat considering the time change between our home and theirs). Overall, an excellent stay and we can't wait to return!

Great Ocean Views all day!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo with full ocean view. Beautiful sunsets. We especially liked the large lanai, full kitchen and plenty of room for the four of us. Well located within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and beach. Fast check in with easy entry. Clean and comfortable. Enjoyed large flat screen and quick wifi. Will recommend this condo to our friends and family.
