Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This is our Maui home, a 4th floor penthouse. We recently put in new furniture, carpet and paint. This condo has been a part of our family since it was new in 1974 and we have carefully remodeled it for maximum comfort and enjoyment. There is a new flat screen (4K, HDR) that will give you convenient access to your Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and other accounts.
The large living area has vaulted ceilings reminiscent of the Hawaiian royalty. We have the most open bathroom areas of any unit in the complex, with built in cabinets and ceiling fans. We have a lighted lanai where we take all our meals and watch the ocean or check out Haleakala crater. We can even watch the whales from there! Kamaole Beach Park III is just across the street, with a wonderful park that has swings and a large grass field for running or flying kites. You can watch the sunset from the Lanai or bring your beverage with you to the beach for an even better view.
When the complex was built, my father, the architect of the complex, had the opportunity to buy any unit he wanted. He chose A-404 as having the best exposure and view, without being right on the street. We believe that, with the remodeling we have done, it is the most comfortable all-around condo there. We have tried to maintain an atmosphere consistent with the islands with our furnishings and artwork.
The master bedroom has direct access to the lanai. It has a king bed, TV, dresser, nightstands and everything you’d expect in your own home. The master bath has plenty of storage and lighting. We even have a rod over the shower/tub to hang snorkel/scuba gear from when washing in the tub.
The second bedroom has a queen bed. The fully remodeled bathroom has more storage, an overhead fan and a shower enclosure. With the Shoji screens stacked to the side, you have a very impressive 'great' room.
The kitchen has all the usual appliances, including the necessary blender for your favorite island drinks. We try to leave the refrigerator stocked with most of the usual condiments you hate to buy for a week or two: mustard, mayo, catsup, salad dressings, etc. Don’t be surprised if someone has left drinks and other non-perishable items for your enjoyment. There is often something in the freezer, too. We encourage you to use them and leave something for the next guests. The condo is “hotel” clean for your arrival and then cleaned up when you leave. We even have a separate filtered water spigot at the sink so you don’t have to buy bottled water!
We have full a sized washer & dryer in the utility closet, along with coolers, beach mats, towels, and everything you need for the beach.
There are three air conditioners, SIX ceiling fans (one in each bedroom, bathroom and kitchen), one large and one small tower fans will keep you comfortable. Try using the fans & opening the windows to get the true island experience.
Enjoy the common pool area, the BBQ with tables and chairs & the covered gazebo at Haleakala Shores.
Walk to restaurants, and shops.

About Alan Nobler
We live in San Jose, California and have traveled to exotic locations around the world, but keep coming back to Maui. We have owned this condo since it was new and have done extensive remodeling.
Alan Nobler purchased this Condo in 1974
Why Alan Nobler chose Kihei
We have owned 2 other condos on Maui, but keep this one as the best of all. It has all the amenities you might need for your vacation. You can walk to restaurants, the beach is convenient and provides both snorkeling and boogie boarding as a break from your tanning.
What makes this Condo unique
This is our 2nd home. We have treated it as such and have the things there we expect to enjoy as part of the Maui experience. We can be in the water before most hotel guests can catch an elevator. Contact us for our restaurant and activity recommendations. Hawaii License #W40832872-01.

Another Amazing Vacation
We have stayed here for the past 4 years because of the comfort, cleanliness, view, and easy access to the beach.
Roomy, comfortable, clean, and amazing location! Everything you need is right at hand.
We chose this condo because of the price, the size, and the location. It is a little over 1000 sq ft with two large bathrooms, both a king and queen size bed plus a pullout bed in the sofa, very comfy mattresses and bedding, plush towels, and all we needed in the kitchen. And not a single bug anywhere except a few little flies if we left food on the lanai table. We would recommend this condo highly and even looked at several units for sale in the building as we enjoyed the location so much. The lanai is more covered than I had hoped, and the trees and condo next door do block some of the potential view. Still lovely though. It is directly across from Kameole Beach 3 with its beautiful sand, an excellent slope to the beach so the waves break nicely for playing in the water, very good snorkeling in the lava beds to either side, and a large park with both shaded and sunny grass and bathroom facilities. One of the nicest features to the beach area is the trail that takes off to the south and continues for maybe a mile and a half over easily traveled paths, hotel lawn and another expansive beautiful beach. Gorgeous!
The condo is very comfortable and could easily house a family with three or even four kids (two on the pull out bed though...). The bed pillows are a bit firm so I was glad I brought along my favorite from home. The kitchen has full sized appliances (including a dishwasher) though is tight on counter space, and as the ceilings are so high the lighting is dim. I brought over a nightstand lamp to put on the bar above the sink and that helped (plus my husband replaced a missing bulb in the overhead fixture). The washing machine is older but works just fine. There are beach chairs, boogie boards, pool noodles, several beach mats, and some beach towels. Really the only thing we missed was not having access to Netflix as the tv wasn't allowing any streaming to be used. The local and cable stations available were okay and we did find a couple movies worth watching on the several nights we stayed in. We didn't miss it much though - we were in Hawaii!
There are excellent restaurants/cafes within walking and driving distance, grocery/drug stores all within a few miles, and easy access to the Piilani Hwy which gets you on the main thoroughfare to everywhere else on the island. We loved this condo and would readily stay here again. Thank you, Alan and Barb, for opening your tropical home to the rest of us.
Large, bright condo in a great location
This top floor condo is in a great location, across from the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. The unit could use an upgrade but it was well stocked and everything worked. The lanai is a decent size with nice views of the ocean and Haleakala. Our only real complaint is there was a lot of road noise. Overall it’s a decent condo in a great location.
Very nice,clean and roomy
Great Location, Great Price!
If you want a luxury condominium, feel free to find and pay for one. This is not it. But this condo IS the best deal on Maui. The location cannot be beat! And the price also cannot be beat! Just across the street from some of the best beaches, and in walking distance to great food, great coffee, great gelato, great ice cream, great shaved ice, great shopping, everything you could want! And the price of the condo allowed us to splurge on these other things instead of spending all our money on a luxury condo. Has amenities like beach towels, boogie boards, noodles (great for snorkeling with kids), sand toys, etc. The onsite property manager is also a very nice guy and was sweet with our kids. We LOVED our stay and will likely be back. Thanks Barb and Alan for being great hosts!
The room was probably one of the nicer ones to stay in at the Haleakala Shores. Being on the top floor with vaulted ceilings and a very nice view of the ocean off the lanai. 2 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to get a shave ice or ice cream. Well equipped kitchen, lots of linens, beach chairs and umbrellas. Very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Sarah has just stayed with us for the first time. We hope she comes back soon.
