Why Robert Brede chose Kihei
My Hawaiian Ohana (adopted son, Robert) is my manager. Having Robert and beautiful wife Hulali live in Maui is a great asset for me, and our guests.
What makes this Condo unique
Quiet secluded area, Morning walks up to 3miles on the beach viewing of gorgeous sunsets and views of various ancient fishponds, Turtles Humpback-whales, Roof top observation of panoramic ocean views island of Kahoolawe and Lana'i small little island off maui Molokini and the Beautiful west Maui Mountains and the great Volcano Haleakala
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
Great location with simple access to beach and lagoon. Needs to be cleaner, though.
Excellent location for staying in Kehei. Close to everything. Access to beach, pool and lagoon were great. Property was well stocked with essentials. Could have been cleaner though. We had to clean the air vents in both bathrooms and the floors, which we Swiffered, need a deep cleaning. A cleaning service should be brought in on a regular basis to keep the place clean from top to bottom. You cannot rely on all guests to clean the place properly. Also, on Muggy days, the condo gets really hot and sticky because of lack of air conditioning. Plenty of room for four (4) guests. Overall. three stars.
Older but doable
4 of us stayed in this location for 2 weeks. It is a comfortable location being on the 1st floor and the complex is managed well. The turtles are steps away from the condo and the pool, grounds and beach nearby are very accessible and clean. The condo itself is older and could use a thorough "deep" cleaning but it was doable for the time we were there. We did some of our own housekeeping while we were there and in turn left it cleaner than when we arrived. The 2nd bedroom (2 twins) converted to a king size bed was manageable but not necessarily a perfect solution......but what the heck ..... you're in Maui ..... we made it work. The most frustrating aspect of this condo is not having good access to Robert, the manager of the condo. We contacted him, as requested, upon our arrival to the airport and left him a voicemail advising we had arrived. We never heard from him during our stay and when we attempted to contact him regarding issues at the condo, we were never able to leave him a message on his phone because his mail box was full. We should have attempted to text him instead of calling -- he says it's an easier way to keep in touch with him. I texted him when we left and have exchanged a few emails with him through VRBO after we arrived back home. All in all we had a marvelous time on Maui -- got to see whales, turtles, amazing scenery and ate great food. It will be a vacation we will remember for years to come. Thank you Aunty Pili for sharing your home away from home with us.
Menehune Shores is complete paradise
We as a family with young children, including an infant, cannot rave enough about this place. This was our first stay in Kihei and at Menehune Shores and our second visit to Maui (first time was in Kanapaali). I didn't know much about the location coming in, but now I am certain Kihei is the perfect place to be. So accessible to Malaalea boat harbor (15 minutes max), about 30 to Lahaina, 30 to road to Hana, and just a short drive to Wailea and Makena that offer beautiful snorkeling spots. Specifically Menehune Shores is just 2 minutes from a large grocery store, Ono Gelato (delish), Coconuts fish tacos (a favorite), coffee shops, and Ululanis Shave Ice (you have to go!). Aside from the location, now let me get on to the even better part...the unit and grounds itself. Wild birds wake you up in the morning (but it's Hawaii you want to be awake!) The breeze coming through made the temperature perfect as we were never too hot. Step on to the Lanai or look out your masterbedroom and see the beautiful ocean and maticulously cared for lawn area and pool. Barbecues were clean and all guests were friendly - we grilled out almost every single night of our weeklong stay while our kids played on the lawn or watched the sunset. We went up to the 7th floor rooftop almost every night to watch the sunset and there are 4 grills and 8 picnic tables up there to enjoy the panoramic view. It is HUGE! We watched New Years Eve fireworks up there and were able to view them from all over the island. As a guest you have access to the rooftop from early in the morning to 9pm at night. This is an amazing feauture! The pool was clean and a favorite for our kids. Shuffleboard game right out our door is available to all guests was really fun. And the BEACH. Let me just tell you - it is perfect! Never over-crowded. Literally steps away from your door. If you forget something...who cares! Make 10 trips it's so easy and close! We swam literally with the turtles every day that would frequent the calm, pristine beach. Snorkeling was amazing. We did explore 5 caves in Makenna and Black Rock in Lahaina, but other than that we stayed right on our beach to snorkle because there was that much to see. The unit was amazingly stocked: umbrella, beach chairs, cooler, high-quality snorkles, boogie boards, towels, sand castle toys. We loved every minute of our stay and can't wait to get back.
We are Happy that you were able to experience our island which we call Ohana, your kids to remember and educated about our culture and what our life style is.
A Hui Hou
Lots of room for our family of four.
Condo was well stocked with everything we needed for our two week stay. Ample dishes, towels and little things like laundry soap, tin foil, etc. Lovely to walk out the door to the beach or to watch the amazing sunsets in Kihei. There was a fair bit of street noise and the locals like using the next door park to ‘have a few’ so we did sleep with windows closed but fans were enough to keep us cool in December. Pool is not heated so very cold & wasn’t used much by anyone. Nice & easy to book and check in - Robert was quick to answer questions we had. Mahalo!
Our family loved our stay at Menehune Shores. The condo really did have everything we needed. It was comfortable and nice, but not so nice that I had to worry about my kids breaking or damaging anything expensive. It felt like home. Unit felt very private and secluded and we loved being on the ground floor. All the employees at Menehune Shores were very friendly. We hope to come back next year!
It's always a leisure to hear that families that stay with have a great experience at Home away from Home.
Please Come back.
Wonderful condo with everything you need! Loved it!!!
We enjoyed our time in Kihei & very nice condo in Menehune shores. It has nice kitchen, comfy beds, living room with patio, pool & beach. Every moment there was wonderful!!!
