Overview

About the property

1 BD/1 BA, Ground Floor

Kihei Resort is located across the street from Kalepolepo, a lovely protected beach which connects to Three Mile Beach, Maui's longest continuous sandy beach, ideal for early morning or sunset walks, swimming and sunning. Minutes from the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, the lush tropical gardens and peaceful lava rock fountains of Kihei Resort are a Hawaiian oasis.

Our ground level condo is designed for your vacation needs. Air conditioned and non smoking it sleeps 4 comfortably. With 621 sq. ft. of living area this condo is roomier than most in its price range. High speed wireless internet, a 42” flat screen TV, and DVD player are included.

Your vacation home is situated in a small resort with all of the units facing a lovely Japanese garden; in one corner of the complex is an inviting swimming pool with a Jacuzzi and shower, the other corner has a barbeque area. You are only a very short drive from shopping, grocery, and restaurants.

The living and dining area is about 300 sq. ft. with a feeling of spaciousness that welcomes you to make it your home away from home. The living room has a new air conditioner and ceiling fan plus a comfortable queen sleeper couch with 3 ottomans that open for storage. The kitchen is fully equipped, including all the amenities a cook will appreciate plus basic spices. The bathroom has been remodeled with tile flooring and a beautiful wood vanity with granite counter top. The bedroom has a king size bed which will provide you with a good nights sleep after an active day at the beach plus a new ceiling fan.

For your beach excursions, choose from 3 sizes of ice chests, 4 folding chairs, 2 umbrellas, 1 boogie board, 2 sets of snorkeling gear and 4 beach towels. No need to pack a lot of clothes as there is a washer and dryer with soap provided.

Located in north Kihei, less than 15 miles from the airport, the location is situated to easily explore the wide variety of all that Maui has to offer. A mile to the south is Azeka Shopping Center and Piilani Village Shopping Center to handle all of your shopping and dining needs. Included are activity centers, restaurants, post office, bank, and medical center. Nearby are a farmer's market, gift and craft fair, and Kalama Village featuring local shops and food.

Beyond the shopping is a stretch of some of Maui's best beaches, Kamaole Beaches I, II and III, some of the best body surfing beaches on Maui. Very close by is Wailea, one of the finest turtle-spotting beaches for snorkelers. Whale watching boats leave from a harbor 15 minutes north, just past the bird sanctuary and aquarium. The road to Haleakala Crater starts 15 minutes away.

You have a reserved off street parking space when you stay at Kihei Resort. Our calendar is up to date. E-mail or call us to confirm your reservation and secure your Maui vacation.

About Sheena Grannis

Christopher and I love sunshine, sandy beaches and snorkeling in the warm ocean. We live in Bellingham, WA, the Evergreen State, a lovely state with majestic mountains, many green trees and lots of rain. Seeking sunshine, we have vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands many times and decided that Maui is our favorite island with its many beaches, hiking and friendly locals. We are both semi-retired and decided to buy a condo in Maui so that we could spend more than just a few weeks enjoying the sand, sea and surf. We welcome you to our Maui home and want to help make your stay memorable and comfortable. We invite you to explore all that Maui has to offer, it truly lives up to its common name, The Magic Isle.

Sheena Grannis purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sheena Grannis chose South Maui

What attracted us to Kihei Resort was the well-cared for, beautiful garden along with the general pleasant atmosphere of the well designed 64 unit condo complex.

What makes this condo unique

The resort is located in North Kihei, which we find quieter and more relaxing than South Kihei. The location lends itself to easily exploring other gems of Maui like Lahaina and Paia.

Very clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here in early August. The condo was the perfect size for us, and had everything we needed. The beach equipment was great, and I really liked the keyless entry (no losing/forgetting keys). The condo complex was quiet, but friendly. It was a great home base for us as we explored the island. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maui.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Easy access to town and beach. Very quiet, place was clean and cute! Coolers, umbrellas, chairs and snorkel gear/fins were all supplied! Pool and hot tub were very nice too! A/C was only in living room, not the bedroom, but it cooled the whole place. Would stay again!!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for our 10 year anniversary with our 8 month old baby and had a wonderful time. We had practically everything we needed, especially for fun at the beach. There were plenty of food condiments, beach gear including chairs, umbrella, beach towels, snorkeling gear, and even a few toys for our little one. The grounds were beautifully maintained and quiet and the bed was super comfortable. I wish we lived closer so we could come back often! I was worried it would get too hot with only a small a/c unit in the living room but we didn't have any problems. Great location for getting around the island too. Thank you for welcoming us into your home away from home!

Comfortable & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here - great accommodations, clean, close to the beach! Sheena was very helpful and easy to communication with both before and during our stay. The perfect place to stay if you're looking to experience Maui in a less 'touristy' way, or if you are. Close to both small beaches and larger ones with more people, great food around, and their guide to Maui in the condo is extremely helpful.

Unpleasant Experience After Check Out

  • 1 of 5

We booked this apartment after reading positive reviews and getting good rate. The apartment is lovely. We enjoyed our stay. We checked out Sunday evening as we had a late evening flight. 6 days later we received an email from the owner that we left their condo very dirty and caused some damage to the wall, so they would be retaining our security deposit. We asked for a picture of the damage to the wall. No picture was sent to us. No details were given regarding the nature of damage. The owners sent us report from the cleaning crew, which was highly exaggerated and nasty. Owners decided to keep the entire security deposit "to pay the cleaning crew well". The cleaning fee was in low 3 digits (VRBO won't allow us to write the amount) and the security deposit was 1.5 times the cleaning fee. Did it really cost that much to clean the apartment? Why claim wall damage first? We would have been ok if the owner had calmly explained that extra cleaning was required which cost x dollars more. The whole incident and communication from the owner has left unpleasant memories for us.

Owner's Response: We have owned our Maui condo for almost four years and I feel very grateful that our guests have taken such good care of it. We live off island so rely on our experienced and trustworthy cleaning company to clean the condo well and to let us know the condition of the condo after guests leave. The cleaning company informed us, providing photos, that the condo was left in very poor condition and that there was surface damage to a wall. After my initial communication with the guest letting her know what the cleaning service had said and that I would be retaining her deposit she was shocked at the report. I contacted the cleaning service again and explained that the guest was shocked and she said, "I am very surprised that they are shocked because they left the place really messy and dirty. Honestly, the dirties place I have ever seen a guest leave a condo." I sent the guest another email quoting the cleaning woman's comments. The cleaning service will be charging for the extra travel time to return and the extra time it took them to finish cleaning. The guest's deposit will cover the extra cleaning fees as well as repair the surface damage to the wall.
