Kauhale Makai is centrally located on the island. It is a quick 20 minute drive to the airport, or about 30 minutes up-island to Lahaina or Kaanapali. Grocery shopping and restaurants are abundant and less than a mile away. No matter what your interests are: whale watching, scuba, snorkeling, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, biking, exploring, or just laying by the pool to work on your tan, you will find this location convenient to all.

Inside the condo you will find a Welcome Booklet with insider's tips on beaches, restaurants, shopping, activities, sight-seeing and the best happy hour offers on the island! A great tool for a fabulous vacation!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up on the west coast of Southern and Northern California, I LOVE the ocean and sailing. You may notice one of the properties of mine is in Maui. Ever since I visited Maui as a kid, I have been going back to vacation as often as I can. As our family traveled, I found Hawaii to be the perfect place. I couldn’t get enough of the ocean. I was just amazed as a kid the first time I went snorkeling – I thought, ‘Cool, it’s like swimming in a giant fish tank!’ There was no question, someday I would live and vacation in my own ‘Hawaii beach house.’ I hope you’ll enjoy all that our properties have to offer. I sure do. I think you’ll want to keep coming back too!

Why the Owner Chose Kihei, HI, USA:
We looked at a lot of complexes, but none had that 'tropical island' feel that Kauhale Makai does. The grounds are beautiful and the horizon is nothing but ocean and open space. Even though 'town' is very close, when you're here you don't feel like you're in the middle of it. Also, this unit has been a rental for many years. It is HUGELY popular with travelers. We feel very fortunate to have a vacation rental with so many repeat customers. Even so, we keep trying to make it better!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Views. The views from this unit are some of the best in the building! Whale watching anyone?
