Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath ground floor condominium home underwent a complete renovation. It has a gorgeous decor and has air conditioning.

Conveniently located on the ground floor, this unit is on the south corner of the building farthest away from the street. It is very easy to park near the home and come into the end without having to go through the entire building each time you come and go. We are only a few short steps to the pool and grassy lawn, and a few more to the sandy beach and ocean beyond. The view is as shown in the photos and is considered a partial view. You can see the ocean from both the master bedroom and the lanai. We enjoy breakfast and lunch on the lanai and usually have dinner on the rooftop deck to watch the sunset.

The master bedroom has a California King-size bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV and walk-in closet. The windows have with louvered shutters and the bedding is Tommy Bahama. The ensuite master bathroom is remodeled and enlarged.

The second bedroom features twin beds that can be bound together to make a comfortable second King-size bed if desired. (We have a top of the line converter kit with a mattress topper and will have it all ready in this is the configuration you wish - we have slept on it and you can not tell it was not a king-size mattress - very comfy). The bedding also includes Tommy Bahama quilts. The second bathroom includes an extra deep bathtub with shower.

The kitchen has been enlarged and features tile flooring, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is an eating bar with pendant lights and counter stools and a wide selection of small appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster, coffee grinder, rice maker, etc.) to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

For entertainment, this suite includes a flat screen television in the living room complete with DVD player. There are also flat screen televisions in each of the bedrooms. In addition, there is an IPOD dock in both the living room and Master Bedroom.

We have wireless internet service and a secured router. There is also a small safe for you to secure your valuables if you wish.

We have been adding some wonderful local artwork to our home. We are using many local Hawaiian artists. You may recognize Mark MacKay's ceramic koi or Scott Green's metal honu or even a couple of Alex Arthur's exciting and colorful local photographs.

We purchased our home in September of 2011 and completed a full remodel mid-December. We love the area and even if you are not staying with us, we encourage you to stay at the Royal Mauian. It is a beautifully maintained resort and has the best location in Kihei. It is the only resort that I know of that has that fabulous roof top garden with BBQ grills and tables and a spectacular view of the ocean, nearby islands and the Haleakala volcano. The guests are also very friendly enjoying a glass of wine together in the evening or watching their children and grandchildren play together.

About Susan Sipe

We are the Sipe Family (Al, Susan, Parker & Spencer) from the Seattle area. We are always thrilled when our family can get together and enjoy a few days on Maui. We feel so fortunate to have a place like Royal Mauian to spend our time. This photo was from December 2016, when the boys and I were able to visit while AL was on a business trip.

Susan Sipe purchased this condo in 2011

Why Susan Sipe chose South Maui

As our two boys have gotten older, we wanted a place where we could all meet, relax and play together. It took us nearly 2 years to find the ideal property - Royal Mauian. This gorgeous beach-side condominium is well-maintained and walking distance to everything. There is so much to do for all generations. We can walk to a variety of restaurants and shops. There are several beaches within walking distance depending on what we want to do - swim, paddle-board, surf,snorkel or just lay in the sun. We were lucky enough to be able to do a complete remodel when we purchased it including all new walls, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. making it feel like a brand new home. Since we are not in a position to be there full-time, it made sense to share it and we are so glad. We have made many friends and have many repeat Guests that now feel like family.

What makes this condo unique

While Seattle is beautiful and green in the summer - it can get pretty gray and dreary from the fall through the spring. We love to come to Maui for a 'sunshine break'. It really improves everyone's mood. The water is great for swimming and other water sports. Royal Mauian is perfect for us - the sandy beaches are right there and the lava outcropping is great for snorkeling and scuba diving - a hobby we all share. Recently we started naming the turtles that live off the shore. We also love to watch the mama whales and their babies during whale season, but we have not started naming them yet...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning. Josh and I wanted to thank you for letting us use your home. It was clean, updated and so comfortable. The location in town made it easy for us to walk to dinner or to get shave ice or for my son to surf.

We moved to the Grand Wailea after your house and although it was BIG, oceanfront rooms,we missed the low key, laid back ease of your place.

Thank you so much. We wish we had stayed the entire 10 days there!

Owner's Response: We are so glad Angela had a perfect vacation. Surprisingly, summer is a great time to visit Maui. The average annual temperatures are a high of 82 degrees F in the day and a low of 68 degrees F at night. In the summer months that only raises to 86 degrees average in August and September - still very comfortable.

Perfect Maui Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! We were lucky enough to have found the Royal Mauian unit #119 for our Maui vacation. My husband, myself and our best friends visited Maui in May 2017. Maui was a first for all four in our group and the trip was terrific. Sue was extremely prompt with communications and very helpful when asked for suggestions and recommendations for local businesses. She also ensured that we were able to have an early check-in and a late check-out to coincide with flight times. The condo was updated and very well stocked with anything you would need for a beach vacation. It is a just a few steps from beachfront where you have your choice for two beautiful beaches to enjoy. Everything you would need is in walking distance, great restaurants, groceries, beach equipment rentals. Not sure what we enjoyed more watching the sunset on the wonderful rooftop deck, watching the turtles frolic at the shore, snorkeling or just relaxing on the beach. The grounds are well maintained and you can tell that Sue takes pride in her Maui home. If you are considering Royal Mauian unit #119 for you Maui vacation I would say "BOOK IT IMMEDIATELY" you won't be disappointed! Mahalo Sue, for allowing us to stay at your lovely condo and for being so very friendly and accommodating.

Owner's Response: We loved having Corrine at our home. Our condo is so perfect for two couples to share. People love the fact that there are two full bathrooms and lots of separation between bedrooms to give privacy. The great location is one of the main reasons that we purchased it. Fifty steps to Kamaole Beach II and even closer to the pool. We have had a few Guests that don't even rent a car because there is so much available within walking distance - restaurants, stores, and of course beaches! We feel very fortunate that others are enjoying our condo as much as we do. It has been a wonderful experience to be able to share it through vacation rentals with great people like Corrine. I look forward to seeing her back again very soon!

Perfect for any family and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo with us!

Maui is our annual family vacation place and we always stay at the Royal Mauian - it's the best! This was our first stay in this condo and we loved it. We had a toddler with us so I was a little worried about the sliding doors but the screens are secure and safety was no issue at all. We chose this condo because we needed an easy location for our 74 year old mom and it worked out very well. The condo is very nicely decorated, well stocked, and in the perfect location. We will stay here again! Susan was fantastic to work with, it was like staying at a friends condo. Our favorite memory of the condo is walking right out the sliding door to enjoy early morning walks on the beach or enjoy the sunsets.

Susan, thank you for making our stay so easy. You are so personable and generous. We are already planning next years stay!!!!!

Owner's Response: We loved having Aundrea and her family stay at our home. They took great care of it and were excellent communicators. That is what we call "perfect Guests". I agree with Aundrea when she said it was a good location for her 74 yr old mom. My mom is 85 yr old and it is terrific. We can park right beside the condo and then she just has to walk around the corner to go in. It is also close to the lawn and pool. If she had to go to the center of the building to take the elevator and then walk the length of the hall she couldn't do it. There are no chairs or benches along the way where she could rest. We look forward to seeing your family again next year. We love the fact that about 25% of our Guests each year are repeat Guests and another 10% are referrals from repeat Guests. I feel like we are sharing our home with a big extended family.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our teenage daughters stayed at Susan's condo recently. True, it doesn't have an amazing water view, but we actually LOVED the location on the ground floor. It was conveniently located on the end of the building on the ground floor so our busy family could come and go without waiting for elevators, etc. It didn't even feel like we were in a condominium complex! It is conveniently located near shops and restaurants. We found it tough to choose between the two beaches that straddle the condo on either side and the convenient grassy area with lounge chairs in front of the condo.

Susan's condo is beautifully appointed. It is probably the best rental experience we've ever had. Often, rentals are equipped with worn out linens/furniture and tacky wall decor, but NOT this condo! Susan's condo feels like a true home. We would definitely stay here again!

Clean cozy condo by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! Having a condo on the first floor, steps from the pool and beach made everything so convient and easy. The condo was clean and well stocked with beach essentials, including a host of chairs, toys and unbrellas, which was great! The inside of the condo was well decorated and updated and was a great place to retire to after a day outdoors. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the fact that all the doors (bedrooms and bathrooms) were not soild doors but louvred doors, sort of like shutters, so they offered no privacy or sound protection. They allowed great circulation and air flow through the condo, which I understand is their purpose, but especially staying with other family members, (and ones with a small child) it was unfortunate to not be able to retreat to private/quite place within the condo. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the FIVE STAR review Briana. We have only stayed at the home with other adults or adult children so I really did not notice a lack of privacy with the doors. I choose them for their tropical look and for the air circulation as you mentioned. I can see that having a small child with you might increase the noise level in the home. I am glad that you enjoyed your vacation and hope you will visit again. Susan

A few steps to beautiful beaches!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this Maui condo!

We also loved the pool/lounge area right next to the ocean and rooftop bbq area. The views day or night are stunning! Susan (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. Mahalo Susan!

Owner's Response: Thank you Maggie. We are so glad that you enjoyed the fabulous location - you can walk to everything that you need. We also love the roof top deck and spend most evenings there watching the sunset, enjoying happy hour or barbequing dinner. Come back soon Maggie!

Sun bathing, relaxing, snorkeling is right off the end of our grassy lawn. Also very fun and relaxing is the Ocenafront Yoga at the Nalu right next door. The Royal Mauian has a spectacular location - it is a short walk to many wonderful restaurants and shops. If you like to walk - you can take the beach down to the Shops at Wailea (We like to go in the morning for coffee). Snorkling is very good off of the lava flow in front of the resort. Also I have heard the whales are already beginning to arrive, but have not seen them myself. It is spectacular to watch the mother whales and their calves swimming right in front of the resort. there are also green sea turtles that call this area home.
