The condo is situated on the preferred 'interior' side of the Plumeria Building with easy access to the swimming pool, Jacuzzi, gas bbqs and putting green. Nicely landscaped gardens surround the Resort. The Kamaole Beaches are a short two mile drive South of Kauhale Makai. Guests are welcome to use the tennis courts adjacent to the resort. Kauhale Makai is centrally located near several golf courses, diving spots, restaurants and shopping. For those interested in windsurfing, kitesurfing or stand-up paddling this is a GREAT location, launch in front of the property (weather permitting). Your personal concierge is available in the Lobby to assist with booking your Maui activities.

No Reviews since 2015 as we had a Long Term tenant.


Late Fall 2017, Kauhale Makai Resort (Village by the Sea) began a major infrastructure repair and improvement project. Work hours are approximately 8:00am - 4:30pm Monday - Friday. Currently work is being done in the building adjacent to where our rental condo is located. At this time we do not know the exact start date for work in our building.

everything we needed for a great maui stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice,clean.bright condo. We especially enjoyed the short stroll to the beach, the great sunrises, and the T.B. beach chairs and umbrella. My wife and I are pickelball fans , and discovered that the public tennis courts about a 5 min walk own the coast have a very active pickelball scean. We enjoyed walks along the beach in both directions. Would definitely come back.

Great condo, it was everything it was advertised as.

  • 4 of 5

The construction was a little annoying but not overwhelming, and we had a little trouble with the codes to the laundry room but other than that our stay was great. The staff was helpful as well when seeded.

Great convenient location. Very clean with all the amenities needed to enjoy the beach.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a great time; the condo was very clean and in a great condition. Bed was comfy and air condition worked well although we barely had to use it. Complex was quiet and we saw turtles each day on the beach front. Highly recommend and we will book there again.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the condo, everything was ready and set up for an amzing vacation in that wonderful condo. Indications and instruction were well explained and we couldn't ask for a better condo and location. Alex and Buzz made sure we were well taking cared of and were available if we had any questions. The condo is well equipped and perfect.

Thank you for everything, we hope to visit again.

Clean and cozy in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at Buzz and Alexandra’s condo from October 8 to October 23. My friend met Buzz at the condo (as I landed later in the day). Check in was easy, the condo was spotless and fully equipped, including a full kitchen. King size bed in bedroom, A/C, internet access and it’s on the ground floor. Access to laundry facilities and a reception/concierge on site. The condo is steps away from the pool and hot tub and a minutes walk to the beach. Buzz and Alexandra are lovely people and they made sure that any questions we had were answered and were very accommodating. Kihei itself is fairly central for Maui, cute town, gorgeous beaches. It was also an easy launch point to get everywhere and we explored the whole island! Maui was beautiful and it was a huge relief to have had the place we had for our stay. I would not hesitate recommendating this place to anyone!

Relaxing & Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a great relaxing & refreshing location/great condo and we found it here! The owners were most accommodating and considerate. We arrived 9/18 and Alex met us and was a Godsend! The condo is well equipped, beautiful and very comfortable. Everything was perfect! The location of the condo makes it easy to travel everywhere on Maui. We went on the Road to Hana and toured every rental car accessible road (some are not paved, not covered by rental companies). We even took a plane ride to see the Molokai sea cliffs and highly recommend it. We enjoyed our evenings at Alex & Buzz's condo and viewing the gorgeous sunsets! If we have the opportunity to visit Maui again we will definitely stay here!
