Our Penthouse features stunning panoramic ocean views and breath taking sunset views. The suite is located on the top floor (5th) of the building (building B (unit B507) -which is NOT right on busy S. Keihei Road). It is cozy and comfortable and a great place to spend your vacation. This is one of the only penthouse units at Haleakala Shores to have insulated and finished ceilings to help keep the unit cool. The suite has lots of windows and is airy and light. Kamaole Beaches II/III (2 of the best beaches on Maui) are all located across the street from this great location. There are many other beaches within walking distance (Kamaole Beach I, Charlie Young and Cove Beach). You can walk back and forth from your convenient Penthouse suite to the beach all day long without having to use a vehicle.
Our suite has an open floor plan with 16' vaulted ceilings, 1200 square feet, with plentiful windows, abundant sunlight along with refreshing breezes. The living room is the center of the suite and a great area to enjoy playing games, reading or watching your large wall-mounted HDTV. Make yourself at home and relax in the upgraded furniture while enjoying the surrounding artwork including a beautiful Hawaiian rug, turtles on the wall, and other tropical scenes which provides a touch of the local ambiance. This central hub of the suite provides a great place for bonding and making memories of a lifetime.
This two bedroom, two bath suite sleeps four guests and the beds are very comfortable. The bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the living room, with a separate bathroom in each bedroom suite, providing great separation for privacy. The master bedroom comes complete with upgraded linens, and a very comfortable California King-size posterpedic memory foam pillow top mattress....700 count sheets - not common for vacation rentals!. There is an amazing ocean view from this room. The master bath has a large shower, built-in seat and a pebble floor. The bathrooms have soft, clean upgraded towels. The second bedroom has an ocean view of its own. This room is elegantly furnished, lockable (actual solid doors-not a screen) and includes a comfortable Queen-size pillow top bed.
The "5th" person is for a small child that would use the pack n play be in the parents bed. The couches are not for sleeping.

See our reviews since October 2014 when we purchased the unit and here are three reviews from previous guests provided by the last owner:
'The condo was spacious, spotless and well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The furniture was very comfortable including the beds. Kamaole Beach III is wonderful and very close snorkeling. You feel like you are experiencing living in Maui rather than being a tourist; I really like Kihei. Neighbors were nice and welcoming; we were included in the monthly bar b que. Nice pool. Kono on the Green is a fabulous restaurant where we had a magic evening. We had a great time. Thank you.'
'This is our 3rd stay at this wonderful condo. It has every convenience one could possibly want or need. The view of the ocean from the lanai is spectacular! The covered parking is great, you never need to get into a steaming hot car! The beds are super comfy! The kitchen is so well equipped, its a pleasure to fix dinner and relax and watch TV on the big screen. I guess you can tell, I LOVE THIS CONDO!'
'In essence, our vacation began when I located your listing on vrbo months before our arrival to Maui. After booking our dates with you, I frequently went back to the website and looked at the pictures of your condo, imagining sitting on the lanai and enjoying the beautiful view. After all that dreaming ahead of time, one might think seeing 'the real thing' would be a let down - Not so!!! Your condo is by far the best location at Haleakala Shores. The view is spectacular. The extra window over the bed in the Master Bedroom gave an additional view of the ocean. Your beautiful artwork, well equipped kitchen and comfortable furniture made our stay enjoyable. As a former Maui resident, it was a pleasure having our friends visit since it truly felt like our home. Mahalo.'
There are many things to do in Maui: Golfing, tennis, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, down hill biking, paddle boarding, wine tasting, horseback riding, taking the road to Hana, hiking in Iao Valley State Park, and the viewing of beautiful waterfalls. Visiting other areas like Maalaea Harbor, Lahania, islands of Molokai, Molokini and Lanai, upcountry towns, the shops and beaches of Wailea, the Pacific Whale Foundation, aquarium, Makena State Park, and Mt. Haleakala.
Things we love to do when vacationing in Maui include: Going to the beach and building sand castles or paddle boarding in the serenity of the wide blue ocean, going to the pool, relaxing and having a nice cold drink, snorkeling in the reef and seeing the beautiful tropical fish and turtles, eating shaved ice, walking down the beach walkway, skating at the outdoor rink at sunset, shoreline walks, watching breath taking sunsets daily, and slowing down enough to enjoy life, and bond with our family.
