About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4. Beautiful ocean & mountain views.

ALOHA!! Welcome to our 1 bedroom condo. Yes we have FREE INTERNET!! Bring you laptop. This condo has both mountain and ocean views from our large lanai. We are on the 6th floor #629, and yes there is an elevator. There is no road between us and the beach. We love sitting on the Lanai (balcony) and enjoying the scenery and watching and listening to all the beautifully colored exotic birds as they flutter here and there. In the winter you might catch a glimpse of the whales as they play in the surf. You can also see some amazing kite boarders when the trade winds are blowing. You are truly welcome to share our "home away from home" with us.

Our unit is only one of two in Kihei that has central air conditioning. We also have a large flat screen TV in the Living room and a small one in the bedroom. There is a king size bed in the bedroom, and a sleeper sofa in the living room.

Kihei is centrally located to everything Maui has to offer including some of the best beaches in the world, and all the water sports you can imagine! We are a 20 minute drive from Kahului Airport and 2 minutes from downtown Kihei with grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping aplenty. We are within 4 minutes of the world famous Kamaole I, II, and III beaches and are within 10 minutes of beautiful Wailea and the upscale "Shops at Wailea" shopping center. Come stay with us!

About Larry or Joan Laity

Larry & Joan Laity live in Mariposa, California in the foothills of the Sierras just south of Yosemite. We enjoy camping and riding our quads and like being outdoors. In our younger years will liked backpacking and snow skiing. Before we moved to Mariposa in 1981, we spent a lot of time sailing in Southern California We especially enjoyed our trips to Catalina Island. We have been retired for several years now, after having run our own business in Mariposa for more than 25 years.

Larry or Joan Laity purchased this condo in 2014

Why Larry or Joan Laity chose South Maui

When looking for a vacation property we wanted to find something that had an ocean view and easy access to the beach. Kauhale Makai (which means Village by the Sea) seem to be just right for us. The property is beautiful, and was what we were looking for. We purchased this property in December 2014, so we are new to the vacation rental business. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

I think the view from the lanai is what made me feel that this was the place for us. It is so easy to get to anywhere on the island from Kihei. It has 2 pools, a wadding pool for smaller kids, and a full size for for the rest of us. Also a jacuzzi pool, outdoor shower, putting green, shuffleboard, and tennis is available at the park next door. (the office will loan you rackets & balls).

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo for 8 nights in mid-June 2017. Everything was perfect. We loved the top floor of this condo, views were great and it was quiet and peaceful on the lanai for our coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening. While there isn't a washer/dryer in the condo it is literally across the hall (but there was no noise from others coming and going from the laundry). We used it a couple of times so we could pack less 🤗? and there was never a wait. Location of this condo was easy to everything in Kihei and all around the island. We had a rental car so we ventured out every day. We recommend this condo and would definitely stay again.

Kitchen fully equipped with pots pans dishwasher. Reserved parking spots. Only downside was small bathroom.

5 Night Stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the end of February. The condo had everything we needed in terms of cookware, the knives could use a sharpening otherwise it was great. We loved the beach chairs / boogie boards and used them often. Clean, tidy, and well appointed. The beach in front of the condo was excellent for walking, you can go for miles if you walk South. It is a little rocky / coral covered for swimming so if you have children you will likely be driving to a better suited beach for them. The pool was cold, but it felt refreshing on hot days. The hot tub only runs (heated & bubbles) from 4 pm - 10 pm, which I have never seen before. That was a bit dissapointing especially on overcast days when it would have been nice to use. Overall a great stay, although I think we would stay further South for a better beach location in the future.

Paradise at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic unit with all the amenities one could ask for. From sitting on the lania to listening to the birds it was great. Sunsets on the beach were spectacular. Every aspect of this stay was wonderful. We can't wait to return next year

Owner's Response: Just want to say that we swim in the beach out front every time we go. We were out there swimming one time when a sea turtle swam by. It is not great for snorkeling because there are no large coral reefs out there where the fish like to hang out. There are other snorkeling beaches not far away.
