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.

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.

In the last year, we renovated the kitchen and both bathrooms. New mattress in the master.

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.

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.

Perfect for our family!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved sleeping with the sliding glass doors open. The beautiful sound of the ocean at night (and occasional toad) and the bird singing in the morning. The kitchen was well equipped but a little on the small side. It was nice having two tv's. Would have been nice to have a little more privacy in the master bedroom but we knew that going in. The grounds were well kept,There was laundry rooms on each floor with two coin operated washers and two dryers , the gas grils were nice and clean. The pool was also nice even when it was to windy at the beach. The beach area was not our favorite but it was nice to walk and collect shells and rocks. My boys and I enjoyed going out at night and looking for toads and huge snails.We liked how centrally located we were only 20 minutes to Costco.

Nice enough

  • 4 of 5

Overall, accommodations were adequate for our family of four. On the plus side, the view was lovely and the condo complex was pleasant. The staff were helpful, especially Malia from Concierge. No need to book activities ahead of time...you can get better discounts when you get there than the online specials.

Our favorite nearby beaches were Wailea and Keawakapu. All had a good time snorkeling most mornings. The area was relaxing, minimal traffic noise and loved the tropical birds in the morning along with the frogs in the evening. It was nice to have beach towels, chairs and umbrellas in the condo. As far as the condo itself, the master bedroom was a little awkward being right off of the living room and only having shutter doors which didn't allow a lot of privacy when dressing, and if someone was watching TV later at night, the lights and sound easily invaded the master bedroom. The secondary bedroom is in need of new mattresses. Adults sleeping there were uncomfortable. Also, the light switches were broken and an unsuspecting child could stick a finger in there and possibly be harmed. This was reported to management. The master bathroom/shower was very small. The kitchen cabinets were kind of grimy, I tried to clean them but didn't have proper supplies. Also the bedspreads felt dirty, like they hadn't been washed in a while. And I am still wondering why the heavy duty comforter in the master....lovely, but way too warm, yet a sheet was not enough. Overall, for the price, it was acceptable. We spent most of our time sightseeing. Do not plan to swim at the beach there...it's rocky, but morning walks at low tide were pleasant for seeing what washed up on the beach overnight.

Favorite activities-visiting the local farm market down the road, the SUNSET trip to Haleakala, the submarine ride out of Lahaina, and a hike to see the Twin Falls. We did the luau at the Wailea Marriott...it was nice and the food and drinks were delicious. The dinner cruise on the Quicksilver was fair...the food was ho-hum, I think the cake for dessert came from Costco, and the "cruise" consisted of slowly meandering out along a nondescript cliff and then bouncing up and down in one spot for an hour or more waiting for the sunset, which was behind the cliff. Then speeding back to the harbor so they could call it a night.

Great vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

Great property with a beautiful view of the ocean. We went for a morning beach walk each day. The condo had some nice extras including beach chairs and a boogie board for the kids. The location was nice and quiet and very clean. We had a great vacation!

Good place to stay, close to water.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five days, had a great time, the view is beautiful from the balcony, looks out over the grounds and Palm trees to the water. Just a short walk over the grass to the water. Beds were good, the condo had everything we needed. Will come again if I can. Close to town and restaurants, my spouse played golf and I was able to ride the bus to visit all the sights, very easy. I would recommend this condo .Thanks, Connie from California
