About the property


Aloha! And Mahalo for choosing to spend your vacation at my cozy one bedroom condo, Maui Melia! It will now be your home for the duration of your stay on this magical tropical island . . .

Kalama Terrace is in the perfect location . . . it's a mere 5 minute walk to tickle your toes in the sands of spectacular South Kihei Maui beaches like Kamaole Beach Park I (AKA Charley Young Beach) and Cove Park, the hub of South Kihei.

Prepare yourself to embark on the vacation of a lifetime . . .

Upon arrival at Maui Melia, here is what you will discover:

* Charming, spacious 1-Bedroom/1-Bath condo just two blocks from the beach

* All bed/bath linens, beach towels, A/C, washer/dryer on site

* Clean, sparkling pool accompanied by BBQ grills in the community area

* Free Cable TV, DVD & CD player, beach chairs/mats/toys, & cooler

* Free High-Speed Wi-Fi

* Terrific views from the Lanai (patio) that overlooks the pool

* Stocked with most everything you'll need for your Maui Vacation

* Just blocks from restaurants, shops, night life, & amazing beaches

Perhaps start your day @ Kihei Caffe ~ it's been voted 'Best Breakfast' 6 years in a row . . . and it's less than 1/2 mile away!

Then after breakfast you can finally take that surf lesson you've always talked about! Kalama Beach Park is a quick walk up the coast, and the waves are perfect for beginner, as well as intermediate, surfers.

Hang 10, Dude!

After your invigorating morning, dry off, and head a few blocks south to dine at the 808 Deli. Great sandwiches (some gluten-free choices, too), yummy salads, and good prices . . . plus an ocean view!

It's been voted 'Best Sandwiches on Maui' by the readers of the Maui Time Weekly each year.

Maybe you feel like exploring this amazing island and want to venture a little further south. Treat yourself and stop in at the upscale Shops of Wailea. There you will find:

Everything. You. Ever. Wanted. : )

While there, be sure to stop at Lappert’s Hawai‘i . . . they serve locally made ice cream and sorbet, plus coffee, baked goods, and gifts. To die for!

Now that your sweet tooth is satisfied, continue your adventure until you reach the legendary Haleakala Volcano Lava Fields. They were formed by two big volcanic eruptions over a million years ago! Then keep winding your way south down to La Perouse Bay, it is a spectacular sight to see and experience.

Before dinner head back up north a short way and indulge yourself with a Lomi Lomi massage at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort. Ah-h-h-h, Maui . . .

Want to eat dinner where the locals dine? Then head to the Hawaiian-themed Cafe O'Lei . . . they have a raw bar, plus fresh fish, chicken, steaks, and even vegetarian fare! Savor their delectable cuisine as you watch the sun sink into the Pacific . . .

Feel like a little night life? Sweet! Make your way back to 1913 S. Kihei Rd. where you will discover several eclectic clubs, all with a different theme . . . one will most certainly be to your liking!

Back at the condo, you can retire, confident in knowing your dreams are coming true!

And that you can do it all over again tomorrow . . .

About Lynne Decosmo

With my first roots in Massachusetts, twenty four years ago I was compelled to move southwest towards the sun! I landed in beautiful San Diego, but, in my heart of hearts, knew I was eventually destined for Hawaii.

Six years ago, Magical Maui captured my attention, and my heart . . . it was then that I decided it was where I would spend my Golden Years. : )

I have been a middle school teacher for 39 years and really do love my job and the kids, but am so looking forward to retiring in June of 2016 and spending many blissful years on Maui!

My second profession is as a personal trainer. It's really my passion to both be active myself and to help others be healthy and strong as well. So, even though I will retire, I certainly won't be idle!

Maui is the perfect place to either participate in a wide variety of sporty activities or just kick back and watch the amazing sunsets! Guaranteed I will be doing some of each!

Come along and join me, won't you! : )

Lynne Decosmo purchased this condo in 2013

Why Lynne Decosmo chose South Maui

Right from the start, I knew I wanted to buy a place in Kihei . . . it is THE HOT SPOT on Maui! The beaches . . . a-a-a-ah, the beaches . . . they are wonderful, and just a five minute walk from my condo at Kalama Terrace. There's great shopping all up and down South Kihei Rd., it's in close proximity to amazing Wailea, there are endless places to explore, and tons of things to do.

I looked at a LOT of properties before finally settling on Kalama Terrace. When I stepped inside the unit I immediately had a feeling of 'coming home.' I couldn't wait to get to the lanai to check out the view. The sparkling pool with turtles tiled into the bottom was just three floors below . . . I'm on the top floor, so there's no noise from above.

I looked to the right and saw beautiful Plumeria trees . . . then to the left and was thrilled to get a peek of the ocean! Plumeria translates to 'melia' in Hawaiian, hence the condo name: Maui Melia.

My one-bedroom condo at Kalama Terrace is cozy, inviting, and well-stocked.

I know I found THE one!

What makes this condo unique

At the risk of being repetitious, the location of Kalama Terrace is perfect, in my eyes. It is tucked just off South Kihei Road, so it is quiet and peaceful. There are many full-time tenants here, which means pride of ownership, not your typical rental condo complex for sure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed at this condo for two weeks on our first Hawaii vacation. We were nervous booking something online, not knowing what may be in store. We were, however, not disappointed. The condo and Lynne lived up to everything that was advertised. Condo is in a great location and is just the right size for a couple. With the balcony overlooking the pool and shaded by beautiful trees it was the perfect place for morning coffee or evening relaxing. Lynne was in touch on a moment's notice and was very helpful with any suggestions or issues. Thanks Lynne- we will recommend you and your condo to our friends!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in January 2017 with our 1 year old. The apartment is well equipped, clean and comfortable. We loved the balcony for reading in the afternoons while our son napped - it's private, shaded, and has a view of the pool. You are a short walk to the beach, the Cove, and many shops/restaurants. The unit is 2 flights up, but we managed with a baby and stroller just fine. The building is a mix of renters and long term tennants. Laundry is coin operated and on the ground floor, but you are expected to have the towels washed before departure - found this to be a bit strange. Lynne was responsive to emails and accommodating. This was a fantastic place for us, and we would definitely stay here again.

Please come again the next time you visit Magical Maui! Warmest Mahalo, Lynne

Honeymoon haven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lynne's condo back in August 2016. As newlyweds ready to relax, we thoroughly enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner daily on the breezy balcony. We walked to and swam in the ocean every day but also enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at the pool. We had the pool to ourselves every time we ventured down! We made use of the guidebooks and highly recommend these three favourite things on Maui: tacos from Bruddah huts on the road to Hana, Warren and Annabelle's magic show in Lahaina (trust us, even if you think you don't Iike magic) and if you see ribs cooking on the side of the road, buy them!!

We highly recommend this condo for its value, location and all around comfortable and easy vibe!

Thank you Lynne for the excellent communication along the way and our apologies for this late review. If (when?!) we make it back to Maui, you can bet we will be booking this spot again!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Haley! I am so happy you had a wonderful honeymoon at Maui Melia! The lanai overlooking the pool really is a perfect dining spot! I agree about the Warren and Annabelle's magic show . . . so funny! Thanks for the other suggestions as well. : ) Please do come back and visit Magical Maui! Maybe on your 1st Anniversary! : ))) Congratulations & Warmest Mahalo! Lynne

Lynne's condo was perfect for our visit to Maui! The location was within walking distance to most downtown establishments. Each morning I was able to walk along the water's shore for my daily exercise while taking in the breath taking scenery. The beautiful beach was also only a short walk away. Lynne thought of every need and supplies were available for all daily living activities including laundry. There were beach chairs & towels too! I would definitely go back Maui Melia. The price was affordable for a Maui experience. Thank you Lynne - will miss Maui! Anxious to get back.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Laura & Rich! Thank you so much for your glowing review of Maui Melia! Walking the beach is just one of the things I love about the location. : ) I'm glad you were able to enjoy that as well as the proximity to just about everything. You are very welcome and I look forward to having you both stay here in Maui again soon! Warmest Mahalo, Lynne

Wonderful stay at the Maui Melia!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a week in Lynne's condo with my best friend and it was everything we had hoped for! The decor was cute, the bed and couch were so comfortable, and the kitchen and beach supplies had everything you could possibly need! The location was perfect for us, with great access to the beach and only a short walk to all the bars in Kihei (loved the South Shore Tiki Lounge). We especially loved the lanai and had great breakfasts out there every morning.

Prior to the stay, Lynne was incredible helpful and communicative. She sent many suggestions on what to do/see on the island.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay, no issues whatsoever, and would recommend Maui Melia to everyone!

Great location, perfect accommodations, price is right!

  • 5 of 5

The Maui Melia was a perfect home away from home. Lynne is great with getting in touch with us right away. Payment and booking was very easy. Her cute hawaiiana decor and cozy creature comforts will definitely have me booking with her again. Sitting on the lanai, in the rocking chair, drinking coffee was peaceful and relaxing. Myself and two other adults stayed. Two of us slept on the queen pull out with plenty of room. I'm actually headed back with my family in October, already secured the Maui Melia. It's a great deal for everything the Maui Melia offers. Mahalo Lynne!

Wonderful Place to Stay, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Maui Melia for 2 weeks in the middle of July. We are very grateful to have had it as our "home" during our stay. It was centrally located in South Kihei, within a block of South Kihei Road and only a short walk to Kalama Park and the Ocean. We found the Condo to be very clean, spacious, and comfortable, with a great view of the pool!

Lynne, the owner, was extremely helpful, and answered all of our questions. This was our first use of HomeAway, and Lynne made this a wonderful experience.

We highly recommend it, and want to thank Lynne for sharing it with us.

(Our only recommendation for others that are interested is to be aware that this is a third floor walk up if you have any difficulty with stairs, otherwise it is the perfect place to stay)
