About the property

Luxurious 2-bedroom 2nd floor unit with great ocean view & superb Maui location

With a unique, luxurious remodel, you'll appreciate what has been described as the nicest unit in the complex. Don't settle for just anything when you can make that Maui vacation a truly lasting memory.

The unit has king- and queen-size beds and a sleeper sofa, robes for 4 guests, washer and dryer, HD TV with cable service, ceiling fans throughout, iron and ironing board, and new appliances to meet all of your needs, including filtered drinking water from the refrigerator. We have air conditioning, wireless Internet, beach towels, lawn chairs, snorkel gear & assorted aquatic toys, & cooler and ice packs. Kihei Holiday, a conveniently located complex only 15 minutes from the airport, has a beautiful swimming pool with numerous lounge chairs for sunbathing, sizable Jacuzzi, and 2 large BBQ grills and dining tables.

You'll have a terrific view of the ocean for whale watching from the lanai first thing in the morning as you sip on your cup of coffee. With less than a minute's walk to the beach, you can take your wine glasses and bottle of Reisling for that romantic sunset viewing. In the morning, you can also walk or jog upwards of EIGHT non-stop miles of spectacular beach, possibly joining early-morning tourists in giant Hawaiian canoes or watching a Maui local beat her drum and pray to the ocean god. Snorkel or SCUBA dive at sensational nearby beaches, or rent a canoe, stand-up paddleboard, or kayak for an invigorating trip.

Excellent restaurants nearby include Starbucks, Kihei Caffe, Sansei (maybe the best restaurant in Kihei--50% off on Mondays, but be there by 5pm), Antonio's Pizza, Coconut's Fish Cafe, Ono Gelato, Ruby Tuesday, Cuatro, 808 Deli/Bistro, and Pita Paradise, to name but a few. Great shopping (and live music) at The Shops of Wailea include numerous art galleries, Gucci, Coach, Swarovski, Louis Vuitton, Tommy Bahama, etc.

Activities in Maui can fill your entire day and night: golfing, tennis, helicopter tours, downhill bike rides from Haleakala National Park, tours of the Iao Needle (site of a famous battle), whale watching from a boat, trips to spectacular Hana and the sacred pools, Molokini snorkeling, luaus, ziplining, dinner cruises, fishing trips, jet skiing, submarine underwater tours, para-sailing, Lahaina Segway advenures, wind surfing, dancing, and live theater.

For those who marvel at nature, Maui seems to really come alive from November to May with the migration of over 10,000 humpback whales and the amazing sights they provide. Less than a mile from the condo is the Humpback Whale National Marine Visitor Center.

About Etelka 'Etty' Ginga

Matt and Etty live in California but consider Maui home. They are outdoor enthusiasts who know the importance of a great vacation in restoring balance to our everyday hectic lives. Let them help you in experiencing a fun and memorable vacation in paradise.

Why Etelka 'Etty' Ginga chose Kihei

Kihei offers the best weather on Maui! And with a mere 15 minutes to the airport and Costco, WalMart, and K-Mart in Kahului, you can stock up on food and supplies for that one- or two-week dream vacation. This condo is conveniently located with reasonable drive times to Wailea, Makena, Lahaina, Kahalui, Paia, and assorted other points of interest. Even the trips to Haleakala Volcano and the sacred pools in Hana, though a few hours away, are still spectacular. Don't miss the sunrise at the volcano!

What makes this condo unique

You wake up from a long, refreshing sleep, fully energized for the upcoming day. Put on that robe, grab your cup of coffee, and sit in the lanai to take in the amazing full-body breaches of humpback whales. Put on your walking or jogging clothes, and head over to the nearby beach for a one-hour walk or jog on the sand--unless you're in training for a marathon, you will not run out of continuous, non-stop beach. Come back and sunbathe next to the pool and hit the Jacuzzi before heading out for a full day's adventures in paradise. Or do nothing at all and just eat, drink, and relax. You will return to the mainland recharged ... eagerly awaiting your next trip to Maui!

Owner's Response: As an owner, I was very disappointed with having to deal with these guests and their alleged "issues." In three years of offering this vacation rental, we have NEVER BEFORE RECEIVED EVEN ONE COMPLAINT regarding its cleanliness because we work hard to ensure that it meets our high standards. For the first time ever, we received a complaint, with their claiming that the air conditioning filters were dirty. They also complained about not having enough toilet paper. We responded immediately to these matters by having our on-scene cleaning woman provide additional rolls of toilet paper and offering to clean anything in the condo that these guests were dissatisfied with. It almost seemed that these guests were hunting for anything even remotely amiss in order to obtain a refund. Lesson learned: we will not rent our vacation rental to these guests in the future.

Nice location. Every thing was clean and updated. Also furnished with everything you need like beach towels and beach toys. There was even a high chair for our baby. Would recommend.

Great condo and location. Beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This renovated condo was absolutely perfect. Great communication with the owner. Everything you need is in the condo. The pool and BBQ are spotless clean. Very quiet location and allows you to rest and enjoy peacefully Kihei. The beach is foot steps away. Would rent this unit again without hesitation!

beautiful condo!

  • 4 of 5

beautiful condo! We stayed there a week with 2 kids! Very well situated with a nice pool and barbecues. The condo is not ocean front, the ocean is across the street but you can see it very well from the lanai! The condo is very well furnished and very clean! We enjoy very much our stay. The only bad comment I have is that the internet is very poor most of the time or inexistant! You are catching the wi-fi from the pool area, there is no internet in the condo! That's the only negative point, coming from a another country and 3G roaming is quite expensive...a good wi-fi signal is very helpful specially if you want to plan the next day! Surprising in 2017....but other than that I recommend very much this place...

Perfect place to stay in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

When we go back to Maui, Jen and I will

hope Etty's condo will be available.

The location, the view from the lanai,

the extra bedroom, the bathroom and

the new kitchen worked perfectly for

our stay. We took our coffee every morning

and for sunset over to the beach, about 300 yards

away. Mahalo and Much Love to everyone at Kihei Holiday,

Dave Dickson

It really is paradise.
