About the property

HOUSE 4 BDR. 2.5 BA(Slps 8-10) RENT W/ADJOINING 2 Bdrm home & slp 16 GUESTS!

Welcome to the beach! We open our home to you, your family and friends. This home and property was originally built as a family, beachfront vacation home and our intent is to share this wonderful home for years to come. This home has 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and Air Conditioning in all of the bedrooms. Not to mention, the perfect beach right outside your back door. (In the event you need more room, we also have a unique Hawaiian cottage on the 150' wide property. It is a very special Hawaiian home built in the 1960's. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and sleeps 6 guests. If you would like to rent both houses together, you will be able to sleep 16 guests.) The property is in a quiet residential neighborhood. One block away is the heart of Kihei Town. Local Restaurants, Pubs, Fast food, Music, night life, drug store, Kaiser and so much more.

Beautiful tropical plants adorn the property, including 40+ palm trees and a 100+ year old Banyan Tree. Banana trees, lemon tree and coconuts (if you are lucky enough to visit while the coconuts are being trimmed from the trees.

The house is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath home that sleeps 8 (up to 10, with children). Two of the bedrooms have king-size beds, a third has 2 double beds and the 4th has 2 twin beds. The house has beautiful maple flooring, granite counter tops and maple kitchen cabinets. All 4 bedrooms are located on the 2nd story with a large deck (12 x 24) that overlooks the ocean. Both of the king bedrooms have sliding glass doors that access the large Lanai. Morning coffee is a must from this location as you watch the Ocean awake. It's like sitting on top of the world!

All of the beautiful furnishings are comfortable, making it easy to feel at home, relax and enjoy your vacation. The kitchen is fully stocked (including a blender, toaster oven, microwave and Hawaiian dish ware, rice cooker, coffee pot), The kitchen has great counter space and the dining table expands to seat 12 guests.

Relax on the large lanai facing the lawn and beach beyond, or lounge on deck chairs on the lawn. This home has everything you will need to enjoy your vacation---you feel at home the moment you walk in. You would never know you are one block from the main road of Kihei Town.

There is a hand built Lava rock wall that fronts the property. There are a few reasons we decided to have the wall built. Reason one, we want our guests to feel comfortable and secure and also for our guests can enjoy the wall and discover the beauty of fabric of our Island. The Lava.

The house is adjacent to a 2-bedroom house under common ownership, which is also available to rent. (See VRBO Listing No. 180360.) A grounds keeper lives on site and can be reached by phone.

We do not allow weddings and/or wedding receptions on our property.

Why MITZI REED PROPERTY MANAGER chose Kihei

We are a legal vacation rental property.

OUR HAWAIIAN TAX I.D: #W007911451

What makes this house unique

It is very difficult to find a legal Beachfront vacation rental. But to find a property that is 150' wide with a huge lawn area that will lead you to the white sandy beach., very difficult!!

You are able to rent just the 4 bedroom home, if that is all the room you need. Your home is still very private and neither home can see each other from their respective lanai's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 4th year visiting this property! It is wonderful! We usually stay for 2+ weeks and never want to go home when our time is up. The home is large, lots of windows, very comfortable. Very private, it feels like you are on your own private Island!! Owners are very concerned and will help in anyway they can to make your visit the best it can be! We have already booked for next year!! Great price for this home, should be more, but don't tell the owners that!!

The best place to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house on our trip to Maui!!!! Our group consisted of 2 families totaling 8 people and there was plenty of room. The view from the 2 bedrooms off the upper deck was my favorite part because we loved being so close to the water. We stayed for 10 nights and it was the perfect amount of time after our LONG flight from the east coast. Everything was at the house that we used frequently: grill, beach towels, laundry, outside patio, beautiful lawn, beach/water, beach chairs, loungers, kitchen appliances, internet access, and the bedroom air conditioners. Since we stayed during the summer, the humidity in the afternoon was high, so being able to sleep in cool bedrooms was a life-saver. The location of the house in Kihei was within a short distance to restaurants and shops so it was always easy to run out to get anything, and yet we didn't feel like we were in the middle of a city. It was on a quiet neighborhood street. At night we witnessed large sea turtles coming to rest on the beach which was pretty special. During the day we ventured out to the numerous beaches on the island (which were beautiful!!!), road to Hana, Lahaina, Costco, snorkeling trip, jet skiing, learn to surf lessons, or when we wanted to just hang out at the house, the beach was right there!!!! The owner, Brian, was easily accessible through email before our trip with any questions that we had. There was no need to contact him while we were at the house, because we had everything we needed, but his contact information was at the house too. We would definitely return to this place and highly recommend it!!!!! The overall feel of Maui was so relaxing and this house/property made it feel that way too.

Closest you can get to the beach without being in a condo or hotel!!

  • 4 of 5

Brian was great communicating with us before and during our trip.

The towels and linens were very clean...as my dad said "they are going for luxury quality here."

The house itself has all the basics you need and some essential extras for kids (highchair, safety gate and pack n play).

View is great. Sun is in a great location in October for Sunsets.

Location to town is perfect.

It does not however have other household items like snorkels, boogie boards, basket of baby toys or other random things 'homes' have, so in that sense it does feel like a rental and not like a home away from home. (The rental home we stayed at on Oahu had a garage full of 'toys' even kayaks and SUP boards). So here you end up spending initial day at beach rental places instead of heading straight to the beach.

Kitchen and baths were very very clean. Yay!

But as I said before, didn't have extras like other homey rentals I've stayed at (left over bug spray would have been really nice in the evening). Minimum dishwasher pods and washing machine detergent so we ended up getting that too (and when it's provided it really encourages cleanliness by renters). When the house is full of grandparents and grandkids there are lots of meals and laundry! On the plus side to minimal provisions there is basically no clutter at all!

It does get a little warm in the house, but all the bedrooms have top of the line a/c units that literally work in seconds. Downstairs can get toasty, but there are lots and lots and lots of fans.

Four stars because of ease of rental communication and transaction but not the fifth star just because the one thing we love about VRBO or AirBnb is the chance to rent a house that feels like a home and not a rental. But my dad would probably give it 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Aloha! Thank you so much for your honest and informative review. Our goal has always been to make our home feel like home for our guests and in most cases when reading other reviews, we have accomplished that goal. I am truly sorry that you left not feeling like you were leaving home. I will address the issues you mentioned that led you to feel the way you do. I will add some children's toys. We have always provided beach toys for children but haven't really provided household toys in the past. I have already spoken to our housekeeper about leaving more dish detergent, laundry detergent and insect spray. We do provide boogie boards and there should have been boogie boards in the second shed on the North side of the home. That shed was labeled boogie boards. We do not provide kyak's and surf boards because of the liability. I hope you will return some day so that you can then call our home your home away from home. Mahalo, Brian Reed

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house accommodations were perfect for two families. The property is well maintained, there are enough dishes, cooking equipment, bath and beach towels. The property manager is very responsive and extremely accommodating! The beautiful beach is a few steps away, no crowds and plenty of snorkeling (water shoes might be helpful to walk through the coral). We would definitely consider staying here again. Mahalo

Don't stay here. At least not the week I want to stay here.

  • 5 of 5

First, the pictures represent the place very well, yet it is still more impressive when you arrive.

Brian is very responsive, flexible and accommodating and really wants you to enjoy your stay in general and Maui specifically.

The location is very accessible to many of the best parts Maui has to offer yet removed enough that it is very quiet and not overrun with tourists.

I do understand two issues that people have. One, the beach has some sharp rock/coral in the water so precautions should be taken before entering by wearing foot protection to go in. Secondly, there seem to be several complaints about no air conditioning. It does get warm inside, but it really isn't the island way to use ac or heating for that matter. I know it is not much of a consolation to those who wanted it, but you will find many homes on any of the islands lacking ac.

Lastly, the home and the property are unbeatable. The kitchen is spacious and has more than you will need. There is a nice grill outside and huge tables in and out to accommodate large groups. Everything is nice and comfortable. And then there is the view and the lawn with path directly to the beach. You sleep to the sound of the waves and wake to a view of trees, plumeria, and the sea. There is a little grassy berm that separates the sand from the lawn which creates a natural barrier for a touch of privacy but also to keep kids within bounds of the lawn without wandering out of sight to the water.

I really can't recommend this place enough and will stay here the next time I am in Maui.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you so much for your kind review of our property. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return. I did also want to mention that even though the comments about not having a/c in the bedrooms are rare, I do take them seriously and as of 6/7/17 we now have air conditioning in all of the upstairs bedrooms. This will make our home even more enjoyable for those guests who require a cooler environment. Thank you once again and we'll see you again in "paradise". Mahalo, Owner

Private, comfortable, home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property to stay at. Our group of 9 ( 3 couples, 3 single adults and 1 toddler) fit well in the home. Location is excellent, especially for the south side of the island. Brian was great to work with and very responsive to questions. You have a lot of privacy and the beach was almost ours alone to enjoy. Others have said this, and I would confirm. To play in the water in front of the house , wear water shoes or something similar. As advertised there is no air conditioning. We were well aware of that and it worked out fine. It was consistently 90 degrees at peak each day the week we stayed. It cooled off in the evening and the house has plenty of fans. For us it was fine and I would do it all over again in again in a minute. It is simply something to be aware of if you need a break from the heat in the late afternoon. The house is well kept and comfortable to hang out in. If you have a large group that wants a comfortable home base and a a place to cook some meals in a house, this is an excellent option.
