Property type condo

About the property

2bd / 2bath. Great ocean and mountain views

Thanks for checking out our Maui paradise! To start, we'd like to make it known that there is a construction project at the complex, slated to finish at the end of 2018. Kauhale Makai strives to keep both buildings looking brand new, so right now all of the concrete balconies are being resurfaced. As of March, construction is in the building next door. They will start in our building in June. We are renting throughout construction- please inquire about special rates!

It's a 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 every year. The bathrooms and kitchen were recently renovated and include granite countertops 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, as well as any gadgets you may need.

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 have 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, hot tub, kiddie pool, putting green, shuffle board, and volleyball 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.

The Kihei location is ideal. It's the 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 Kihei

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.

The condo was great! It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The condo was outfitted very thoughtfully with everything we could possible need. From the fully equipped kitchen to beach chairs and umbrella and cooler, it was all there. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen were nicely renovated and we loved the terrace with its ocean view. The pool and jacuzzi were great too. The people in the office were friendly and helpful. Jeff, the owner, communicated well beforehand and even checked in with us during our stay. We had a fabulous time!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a nice stay overall. Hawaii has specific lighting regulations to prevent light pollution at night and save energy. For any guests who may need more assistance in the parking lot, I keep a high beam flashlight in the tall kitchen cabinet. This is the first time I've had a complaint about the BBQ or pool area. I'm going to reach out to you directly to get more detail on this. I can relay your comments to the HOA. The last time I was there I purchased a new set of eating utensils. I actually left the old set there too. I'll check on this again when I'm there later this month. I do my best to stay on top of these things! Thanks for your feedback.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just loved Jeff’s condo. The view is spectacular. Every morning we would sit outside on our balcony and eat breakfast while looking at the beautiful ocean. The condo is clean and very inviting. The beds are very comfortable as well as the sofa and chairs. Restaurants, stores and entertainment was very close as well. We definitely will come back!
