Overview

About the property

Make this your new 'home away from home' for two, while vacationing on Maui.

Welcome to Kihei Garden Estates (KGE) and your new “home away from home”! This is a beautifully maintained property with attractively manicured grounds, and a very quiet resort complex, which will allow for a great vacation and peace of mind and body.

This low-rise development is favored by those who enjoy the ease of moving about the property, from parking, to condo, to pool, to beach. Our home offers a garden view from a spacious lanai. KGE boasts a family-friendly gathering area, seating for up to 25 people for your Bar-B-Q feast under the covered pavilion. Enjoy this full outdoor kitchen with two common gas grills, large swimming pool and over-sized hot-tub/Jacuzzi.

Kihei has the most sought-after resort addresses on Maui because of its location, weather and affordability. This is a place where you can relax in a family-friendly location, with the added convenience of shopping centers, bars and restaurants, and activities, all within walking distance. Kihei boasts many beautiful beaches, shopping, and golf. Times Supermarket is only steps away, for your groceries and necessities.

The condo complex is just a short 2 minute walk to Waiohuli Beach, where you can see the most magnificent sunsets imaginable, and the occasional whale or turtle-sighting. Our beach is great for running, walking, strolling, kayaking, paddle-boarding, watching sunsets, catching some rays, and whatever else you may have in mind.

Our ground-floor home, on the west side of the complex, has been completely renovated with new paint, furniture, décor, hardwood floors, granite counter-tops, and a beautiful travertine walk-in shower. Our one-bedroom, one-bath unit is spotlessly clean and decorated in island-style, painted in neutral colors; and is perfect for your relaxing, restful and comfortable vacation.

Our kitchen is outfitted with all-new Samsung stainless steel appliances in 2015 – a French-door fridge with drawer freezer and ice bucket; convection oven with Ceran five-burner cook-top and digital controls; over-range microwave; a full-size dishwasher and a garbage disposal. Also included is a Nespresso Citiz Espresso Machine and capsules provided for your first seven days (instructions on how to reorder for yourself are provided); a Mr. Coffee coffee-maker with basket filters; a Kitchen Aid mini food-processor; a George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Grilling Machine; a Ninja Ultima Blender; a 4-qt. crockpot, a toaster, and a wine rack, complete with a complimentary bottle of wine. We provide all dishware, cookware, glassware, bakeware, utensils and cutlery. The dual ceiling fans in the kitchen help to keep you cool while you create your tropical feasts and cocktails; and the windows at either ends of the condo will allow the gentle trade winds to cool you after the warm afternoons.

Our bedroom was recently redecorated in January 2017, with a comfortable Cali-King bed, new low-style dresser, night stands and lamps. In early 2018, we plan to replace the existing Jalousie bedroom window. At the same time we'll be installing an air conditioner in the bedroom, making it more comfortable for sleep after your day adventuring on Maui.

We’re up to date on technology, too – our home is equipped with a 42” LED TV; cable television; Blu-Ray DVD; Bose iPod/iPhone Sound-Dock; free, secure WIFI and a wireless laser-printer.

We also include, for your use while vacationing here, a beach bag, beach towels, cooler, backpack-style beach chairs, boogie-board, and beach mats.

Maui Trade Winds

In Maui, the northeast trade winds, averaging 12 mph, occur about 90% of the time in the summer and about 50% of the time in the winter. They keep humidity at a minimum and ensure moderate temperatures, especially on the windward side, unlike other tropical islands closer to the equator.

Maui’s south and west coasts provide almost year-round sunshine, dry weather and fantastic beaches along the resort areas of Makena, Wailea, Kihei, Lahaina, Ka’anapali and Kapalua.

***Please be assured, we practice fair business practices. Under no circumstance would we cancel your reservation to accommodate another longer staying guest. Conversely, if you are considering a longer term stay, please check our on-line calendar for availability – we strongly suggest you book early or we will not be able to accommodate your long-term stay request due to other guests reservations.***

About Chantal McIlveen

Aloha! We're Rick and Chantal. We bought our Kihei home in August 2009, when we decided that we had finally found our “place in the sun” that we’d been searching for. Kihei was the perfect fit, with its small-town feel, yet with all the essential and wanted amenities that it has to offer, and being on the “dry side” of the island guaranteed us more sun than rain. We love how relaxed we immediately become when we step off the plane on Maui. It’s a real joy to be able to share the place we love so much with guests who may return year after year. We look forward to welcoming you.

Chantal McIlveen purchased this condo in 2009

Why Chantal McIlveen chose Kihei

Kihei Garden Estates has the resort feel to it, that we love to spend time at. There are 84 units in this complex, so it's not huge; but it affords plenty of owners and visitors staying here at any given time, so you can make as many, or as few, friends as you like. And there's always someone walking by to bid you a 'good morning' or 'ev'ning'. Many people walk down to the beach each evening, with their drink of choice, to enjoy the 'sunset ritual'.

What makes this condo unique

Our home was definitely a 'work in progress' when we purchased it, and that was to our benefit - we could fix it up as we wanted. We got to work almost immediately, replacing the worn-out carpet with new hardwood floor. From there, we did a little work each time we came back, with the brunt of the bathroom and kitchen renovations being done in early 2015. We now have our beautiful, comfortable home in Kihei.

A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The condo is in a nice quiet location but also close to shopping, restaurants and the beach! Its beautifully reno'd and decorated and seems to be equipped with all the extras you might need for the beach.. coolers and beach chairs, as well as a very well stocked kitchen. The bed was super comfy and we found the foot wash feature in the shower so handy for sandy feet!

Chantal was a pleasure to communicate with and responded very quickly to emails, if we are fortunate enough to return to Maui we would definitely hope to stay here again!

Great location and wonderful condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed your spot in paradise. The condo was well furnished and filled with thoughtful items to make our stay easy. Our only issue was a shelf in the closet fell when we were handing up clothes. I think it was a laundry basket shelf? The iron turned out very useful for my husbands shirt. We attended our niece's wedding and found Maui to be beautiful. We had never seen so many chickens and roosters walking around. The beach was close. The pool was lovely and we enjoyed eating breakfast on the lanai. Thank you for the bottle of wine. We will celebrate our 29th anniversary this month.

Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of our vacation home - we strive to ensure that our guests have the best possible stay at our home while on Maui. We try to think of everything you may need while staying here, and provide it for you. The closet shelf that you mentioned must have been dislodged somehow, as they're usually quite firmly locked into place. I'll get my housekeeper to check on it when she's there. Again, thank you for your review, and we welcome you to stay with us again, if you're ever back on Maui.

Great Location, Exceptionally Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We've been travelling with VRBO for years and have never stayed at a property that is as thoroughly and thoughtfully equipped as this one.

Pretty much every kitchen gizmo you could ever want is there, plus a bunch of other thoughtful touches such as beach chairs, a beach umbrella, even Tupperware-like containers, a freezer pack, and cooler for taking your own food along! I can't say enough about how pleased we were with these thoughtful details.

The location is great, too. There's a grocery store right behind the property, a good gelato place next to that, and restaurants and a dive shop all within a few blocks walk. Plus, there's a small and peaceful beach just a few minutes walk away. Bigger beaches are just a few minutes drive away and we found it easy to get from the property to places further afield, e.g. the Hana road.

We loved the outdoor patio and ate breakfast and dinner out there every day.

The air conditioning and multiple ceiling fans allowed us to keep the temperature exactly where we wanted it at all times.

The bed was very comfortable and warm and we loved having so much storage space in the dresser and bedroom closet.

All in all a perfect place for us - thanks for sharing!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very considerate review of our vacation home. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We truly strive to think of everything that you might want or need to make your stay satisfying and stress-free. The last thing you want to do is purchase items that aren't available when you need them. Our proximity to the grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants and beach were all taken into account when we decided to rent our home to others. We thought that other people would enjoy it as much as we do. So many places are within easy walking distance. We would definitely welcome you to stay at our home again, should your vacation travels bring you back to the island paradise of Maui.

Condo / Property review

  • 4 of 5

The property was amazing, always kept clean. The condo we had had everything we needed. The only thing was the bed was too soft but that is a personal preference not a complaint. Would definitely choose this again.

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at this beautiful, renovated condo! The unit and the grounds are impecable and it is in a great location! Very quiet but close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. The unit is equipped with everything you need.

We highly recommend this unit and if we are fortunately enough to return to Maui we would most definitely rent this again!
