About the property

Garden view level, 1 bedroom, freshly decorated with many upgrades, comfy.

LOCATION IS EVERYTHING for this one bedroom condo, facing west over the ocean and directly across from Cove Park Bay. You have a MILLION DOLLAR UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW of not only the ocean, but also the neighboring islands of Kaho’olawe, Molokini and Lana’i AND sunsets every night from the lanai or pool deck with other guests who congregate for happy hour.

Approximately 630 square feet, this unit is ideally suited for 2 people, there is a queen sofa bed in the living room for a 3rd person. The unit was purchased in 2013 and immediately received some freshening up and a full remodel in 2015:

• all new fans in living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom

• full remodel of kitchen and bathroom

• new fridge with ice maker and dishwasher

• new Bosch washer and dryer

• new king-size bedroom suite

• new wall hangings – turtles and whale themes

• complimentary Wi-Fi, private and secure internet, and free long distance calling anywhere in North America

Situated in the south western central part of the Valley Isle, this location has the least rainfall of anywhere on Maui. Did we say “location is everything”, connected to Cove Park north end, is Kalama Park, a large ocean front park (about 4 blocks long) that has expansive grass areas, BBQ’s, playground, roller skating rink, skate park, tennis courts and much more. Within 2 blocks you can take surf board or paddle board lessons, shop at Foodland or an outdoor market for souvenirs, and you are a quick stroll to over 8 restaurants in the area. So, park your car and enjoy everything a vacation should be at your fingertips. Turn south instead, and you are within walking distance of Charlie Young Beach, and the start of the Kamaole Beaches, more restaurants and more shopping.

Unit has:

• air conditioning unit in the living room

• new thermopane lanai door and bedroom windows and frames

• warm, comfy and very Hawaiian furnishings

• key-less coded entry off parking lot

• 2 TV’s – living room and bedroom

• New DVD player with blue tooth capabilities

• Fully stocked kitchen with coffee maker, rice cooker, blender, salad spinner, dishes for eating in the unit, and acrylic dishes for by the pool

• Desk in bedroom and large counter in living for computer work

• Ample seating to visit with friends

Complex has:

• Free parking with easy access to your unit (parking lot completely repaved October 2014)

• Tennis court

• Fully tiled 20 x 40 ft. solar-heated pool and gas heated Jacuzzi, flagstone decking and deck furniture

• 3 propane barbecue grills in pool area, and a 20’ long, tiled and covered outdoor picnic table

All of this and only 20 minutes from airport – and Costco.

About Rod and Diane

Our first visit to Maui was 1997, and we have returned every year since - sometimes twice a year. The Shores of Maui is truly our home away from home. We love Maui.

Rod and Diane purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rod and Diane chose Kihei

The Shores of Maui is the ONLY property we were interested in when we bought. It is the community that we bought into and the aloha spirit that exists in this small, 50 unit complex.

What makes this condo unique

When you sit on the lanai, and overlook the ocean - you can't help but be mesmerized by the sound of the surf, and at peace with the view as you look west towards the sunsets. We never tire of this view, and the surf is continual - 24/7.

Fantastic vacation rental property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at SOM many times and always leave there looking forward to our next visit. This visit was by far our best yet! Unit #121 was an amazing vacation from the moment of booking until the day we left. Diane was a dream to work with and went out of her way to make sure we were happy and well taken care of. Unit #121 was sparkling clean with high end amenities and equipped with everything we needed for our best vacation ever! We can't wait to return!

Our Stay at the Shores of Maui

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 121 at The Shores of Maui for about 10 days. We really enjoyed our stay there. The owners, Diane and Rod were so to nice to deal with. The unit was very clean, which made our stay so comfortable. Also it was so well equipped with everything you need. The pool area and BBQ area was also very clean and well maintained. We would like to give a special shout out to our condo contact Kathleen. Such a dear person and so friendly. We found that we could walk to so many places within a short distance. We would recommend unit 121 anytime.

Owner's Response: Thank you Larry for your comments, and "yes", Kathleen certainly is The Shores of Maui "star". She is so helpful to owners and their guests, and as she lives there, she knows everything that is going on at The Shores. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. When our guests are happy - we are happy. Aloha Friday.

Great Accommodation and Location in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with Unit 121 which was comfortably decorated, well equipped, and

located to give beautiful sunset views from the lanai. We also enjoyed the tennis court, barbecue facilities, pool area and the friendliness/helpfulness of the residents and other guests. The location in Kihei is very central and convenient with beaches, stores, and restaurants all within easy walking distance. We've already booked for next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you Laurie & Shirley for your kind comments. We try very hard to ensure unit 121 is a "home-away'-from-home" environment and are so happy when our guests are pleased. Thank you for your booking this year, and I'm happy you are returning - with family - next year. Aloha

Great Condo, Great Location, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Shores of Maui Condo complex and the first time we stayed at Diane and Ron's beautifully renovated first floor condo (we styed for 11 days). The kitchen was incredibly well equipped and the overall accommodations were excellent including plenty of towels and full array of beach supplies. The first floor lanai provides great sunsets every night and easy access to the wonderful pool and brand new grills. The condo's location in Kihei guarantees dry weather and a convenient location to good restaurants, great beaches for swimming and snorkeling, a County park, and golf courses. The owners were helpful and enjoyable to work with. We highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in an awesome Maui vacation.
