About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath, oceanfront, lanai, full kitchen, washer/dryer

If you come to Hawaii for the warm breezes that seem to kiss your skin, then this unit -#203 - is just waiting for you. The trade winds that love our area keep you cool and comfy. We've just completed a small remodel/refresh in 2016: new tile shower and vanity in master bath, quartz counters & new paint in kitchen and AIR CONDITIONING! (Not that you need it that much but it sure is nice to have when the trade winds take a vacation!) New floors in the bedrooms and all appliances are new in the last year.

Relax on your private lanai where you can watch the ocean and maybe even some whales in the winter months. Kite surfers love the harbor and you can watch them from your perch on the lanai as well. Love the mountains? You can see those gorgeous views too. Go to sleep to, and wake up to, the sound of the ocean lapping at the beach - enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai as the sun wakes up and lights the West Maui Mountains. A glass of wine in the evening as the sun sets, the lights twinkling at Ma'alaea Harbor, and the breeze ruffling your hair, is pure perfection.

This two bedroom, two bath 2nd floor condominium will be your home while you explore the magic of the Valley Isle. In winter months, the Humpback whales provide a show you'll never forget - and yes, you can sometimes see them from the lanai!

This well appointed unit comes with a FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN, REVOLVING PANTRY, WASHER/DRYER, and 2 SLEEPER SOFAS (kinda tight for 2 people/sofa but good for a single).

***NOTE: if your party exceeds 4 people, there is an additional charge of $35/person/stay. This applies to all over the age of 5.

Also included is a Pack N Play for those little's you bring along. All of your linen needs are included; the master bedroom has a TV and the living area includes a 50' SMART FLAT SCREEN and DVD. WIFI internet is FREE OF CHARGE. ***THIS IS A NON-SMOKING UNIT***

In front of the complex is the Ko'ie'ie Fishpond - an ancient wall built several hundred years ago by local fisherman to snare their fish. This wall now creates a calm beachfront for swimming - perfect for little ones or older ones. Walk around the point in front of the National Humpback Whale Sanctuary next door and find a few bigger waves perfect for boogie boarding and watching the wind surfers out in Ma'alaea Harbor.

About Sharon Holbrook

NEW OWNERS: Lynn & Sharon

We have been coming to Hawaii every year - 2-3 times a year - since around 2000. The last 2 visits included considering the dream of owning a home here and with great luck we were able to accomplish our dream. If Lynn had his way he'd live here year round and none of you would be able to enjoy it, so we drag him home, kicking and screaming, until the next time we can make it back. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we love to be there.

Sharon Holbrook purchased this condo in 2014

Why Sharon Holbrook chose South Maui

Menehune Shores is so centrally located to all things you might want to do on the island. Only 15 minutes from the airport (and Costco!), 10 minutes from Maalaea Harbor, 5 minutes from Wailea, and 25 minutes from Lahaina & Kaanapali. Shopping malls are in Wailea and Lahaina; tours you might want to take are easily accessible and if you decide you don't want to rent a car, there are many restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. Golf you say? Of course! Many within a short distance.

What makes this condo unique

We think the weather is the best in Kihei. We've stayed in just about all parts of the island and find that we love the weather here best. We looked at probably 20 units to purchase and what sold us on this property is the lanai's - they all have ocean in the views - AND you can hear waves (my TOP priority). The sunsets from the lanai are spectacular! And rainbows?? Oh yes!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sharon,

We had a great time. A condo is so much better than a hotel or resort. It's nice that the kitchen contains the basic necessities and beach toys are provided.

Clean, modern and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this condo is great to work with. I had a few questions during my stay and Sharon responded immediately. The condo is modern and clean. All of the appliances in the kitchen work great. The countertops are new and look very nice. The flooring in the condo is new and there is no carpet, which I think is very nice since the tile and wood flooring does not trap dust, sand and dirt and is easy to clean. The bathrooms have been updated and are tiled beautifully. There are tower fans and ceiling fans plus ductless a/c. I run a little hot so having fans, tradewinds or a/c to choose from is a big plus. There are beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, snorkels, fins, masks, etc. in the unit so no need to buy or rent these items. I really appreciate the rotating pantry. We have rented dozens of condos in the past and most are completely deprived of any kitchen conveniences such as coffee filters, ketchup, mustard, salt/pepper and the like. The fridge had a little bit of everything. If you use up the last of an item, you replace it. We saved big $ on groceries by not having to stock the entire kitchen ourselves! The high point of the unit for us was it does not possess the tacky bamboo furniture and uncomfortable living room seating as so many of the units in Maui. The two futon/couches are modern and comfortable. Another thing that was appreciated is there is a small safe in the unit to keep your valuables. Would highly recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review! You both were such great guests and we so appreciate that. Thank you for the comments about the rotating pantry - I often wonder if that is appreciated. It's something I like to see in places I stay so it's good to know others do as well. Please feel free to return again and again!

Great location and amenities in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Aloha, our stay in Hawaii was very enjoyable due to our location. Staying in Kihei was the best choice we made and renting this condo was also a perfect choice. The amenities worked perfectly with my family and communication with Sharon and Lynn was excellent. Whether we wanted to take a road trip to Lahaina/Wailew or just hit beach/pool we could do it all from our condo. I especially enjoyed waking up early to do some surf fishing and having a choice of beaches to try. The kids enjoyed the calmness of the fishing pool in the ocean plus the pool. We would definitely rent from Sharon and Lynn! Mahalo!

Great Property! Centrally located to all activities/beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well kept condo with plenty of room for the family. Great ocean breeze to keep the rooms cool and comfortable. Master suite has a very large and comfortable king size bed. Room #2 has a nice queen size bed. Lanai has a great view of the beach and ocean with seating for 4. Grounds/pool are kept nice and clean. I was told the kitchen and master bath are going to upgraded, so its only going to get nicer. I recommend this unit for anyone looking to vacation in Maui.

Beyond Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This condo is centrally located to all the wonders of Maui. Walking distance to restaurants and beaches and a short drive to the harbor for boat tours. Our children (10, 10 & 7) wanted to spend everyday at the sheltered beach at Menehune. We enjoyed the presences of many turtles in the water, on the rocks and even sunbathing in the sand right next to us! More than half the nights we BBQ'd down by the ocean or on the roof top with amazing sunset views and calm winds. The condo supplied our family with endless fun of boogie boards, snorkel equipment, chairs and towels. We put good use to the washer and dryer (thank goodness for this amenity!!!). Our kids also enjoyed sleeping on the comfy couches in the living room, so the second bedroom wasn't used much. We will be coming back time and time again. Thanks Sharon & Lynn!

Wonderful place along the beach in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic accommodations. Everything you need for a great stay in Kihei. Renting a condo is definitely better than staying at a hotel or resort. A kitchen with all the amenities, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach towels, and beach toys for young children. The small sheltered beach is perfect for small children (or those afraid of waves), but there is easy access to numerous beautiful beaches close by. So nice (and economical) to be able to prepare your own meals, and have something more than a hotel room as a base for your daily activities.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable stay at Menehune Shores! Our Condo had everything you could possibly need and then some! Unit was very clean and lots of towels. There was five of us staying and not once was anyone in the way. Started my day on the lanai and ended my nights there. Was so wonderful to wake up to the birds singing and the waves crashing into the shore .Menehune Shores works very hard at keeping the grounds immaculate! Mahalo!
