About the property

2bd / 2bath. Great ocean and mountain views

Two bedroom condo that has been updated thoroughly over the last few years. We just installed new bamboo floors in each bedroom and the unit is repainted once/ year. The bathrooms and kitchen were recently renovated and include granite counter tops and new sinks. The kitchen appliances were replaced in 2015.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all the tools you need to cook a great meal. There is a large assortment of pots and pans and dishes. We just replenished the oils and spices in June 2017, and bought a new set of knives.

There is a king size bed (purchased in 2016) in the master, two new (2017) twin beds in the second bedroom, and a brand new (2017) queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Two full bathrooms- one with shower and one with shower/tub combo. Both bathrooms have new tile and granite.

Flat screen TVs, cable and free WiFi -- if you just can't disconnect! We've also got beach chairs, plenty of towels, a cooler, and an umbrella for your beach adventures.

Kauhale Makai (Village by the Sea) is a well maintained complex. Quiet and family friendly. Pool, spa, kiddie pool, putting green, shuffle board, horse shoes all on property. Tennis courts right next door.

The complex is situated on a large grassy field that runs right to the beach. Great for morning walks along the coast. THERE IS NO SMOKING ALLOWED ANYWHERE IN OUR COMPLEX, INSIDE AND OUT. If you are a smoker, we suggest another location.

Kihei location is ideal. Halfway point between Lahaina and Wailea. The town of Kihei has many affordable dining options as well.

About Jeff

Kauhale Makai is our second home. Though Tillie Doo (shown above) has never been, she highly recommends our condo. Everyone knows that dogs don't lie, right?!

Jeff purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jeff chose South Maui

We are always updating and improving our condo. Wear and tear is a part of rental life, but we make sure that the place looks great for all our guests. From new towels and sheets to pots and pans, we keep the place fresh. We have a management company attend to any and all issues when we are not there. To that end, we welcome guests who will treat this condo as they would their own home.

What makes this condo unique

Being on a higher floor is a great benefit. We have views from the mountains to the sea and are located right at the corner of the building, closest to the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay here in unit 433. The location is perfect. We felt very comfortable here, all the basics were covered and very easy to keep clean. It was our first trip to Hawaii and we can't wait to come back. Hope this place will be available! Thank you very much Jeff and John for sharing your home.

Great location / condo as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great experience in this condo. View and interior of condo were as exactly as advertised. Only "con" is the master bathroom/shower is really small, but otherwise very clean and had every supply we needed. The central location in Kihei was better than we expected, not being too familiar with Maui. Plenty of dining and grocery options nearby. Easy access to airport and larger shopping areas (Costco, Target, etc) for any forgotten household items.

The adjacent beach is not the best for swimming/playing - it's too rocky and waves aren't that impressive. But it's an excellent beach for strolling in both directions and the sunsets were great. Easy drive to other beaches south, west, and north for snorkeling, boogie boarding, etc. Good pool onsite and the large open space allowed for our kids to expend any left over energy during our vacation.

Beautiful views, comfortable & great value!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week before Memorial Day and enjoyed our time in this cute 2 bedroom condo with its amazing view of the ocean from our lanai. It was a very quiet place to spend our vacation with local amenities very conveniently located nearby. We arrived late on Saturday & upon arrival we had everything we needed to get through the 1st am, a single serving of coffee, tea bags but no sugar lol not a huge deal but noticeable when you go to make that 1st cup of coffee super early in the am. We were very pleased overall with the unit as well as the ease of everything including check in, wifi and checkout- literally if I had a question about something I referred to the App and it was all there. We would happily stay here again on another vacation! Mahalo for a great experience!

Felt like home right away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kauhale Makai #433 was comfortable and we settled in as soon as we arrived. The condo is well equipped with all you need and we were able to stock it easily with grocery stores and retail nearby. We found the location convenient and central for exploring Maui. The amenities were clean and we used them daily and grounds were immaculate. Being beachfront and having central AC was a must for us! Jeff was easy to communicate with and quick to respond. Highly recommend!

Perfect place for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights in May and everything was great! The condo is decorated with cute island-themed things that make it feel like home. The kitchen appliances and counter tops are all updated and in great condition, cooking was fun and easy, loved the open floor plan. Bathrooms were very clean and also updated which was nice. We enjoyed breakfast on the Lanai every morning watching the birds and the ocean. The building is in a great location. After visiting Ka'anapali we are so glad we stayed in Kihei. Much more low key and with a relaxing vibe. Grocery store and shops nearby to get everything you need. The master bed was super comfortable! I am really picky with mattresses and have a bad back and I liked it more than my brand new mattress at home. The pool was also nice after long days at the beach. There is a large lush lawn area outside where you can relax or walk over to the beach. We walked up to the beach often at sunset, it's so quiet and serene. I would definitely stay here again!!

Amazing lanai, great location, lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 nights over New Years and had an awesome time. The condo was lovely. The lanai was our favourite part! We enjoyed watching the sunset and whales, having afternoon drinks in the sun, and breakfast to the birds sing. Great view, south west facing so lots of sun and ocean with little to no wind. The kitchen was well stocked, no spices or oil which it says on here but all the appliances and gadgets you need. The pool and hot tub are lovely, though the hot tub doesn't warm up until well into the evening. Spiffy BBQs. Th owner is helpful and quick to respond. We enjoyed the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler for our many mornings on the beach (however there was no boogie board, and the snorkel gear isn't very good, we ended up using what we brought and rented what we were missing). Clean, comfortable and well stocked. We would stay here again.

Great location and condo!

  • 4 of 5

The four of us had a great time here. Plenty of room for a family of four, nice to have two bathrooms. We appreciated plenty of bath towels and beach towels! It was nice to have the pool to relax in in the evenings as well. The kitchen is nicely stocked, we were able to cook meals at home rather than go out for every meal.

I'm sure it will get fixed, but the flooring in the small bedroom was buckling and would've been a tripping hazard for anyone with mobility issues or toddlers.

The view from the condo is breathtaking! We will definitely consider going back to this one in the future. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: We brought a contractor in after you left to fix the buckling floor. It is now back to normal! Thanks for bringing that to our attention.
