Do you really want an OCEANFRONT view? This unit at Menehune Shores is only a few feet from the water and has a DIRECT VIEW that is totally private and absolutely oceanfront. Some units are listed as oceanfront, however they have side views, looking at lots of grass, trees, and a distant view to the ocean. IF the view is as important to you, as it is to me, this is the place for you! You can view my website below, ( to really get a feel for what an OCEANFRONT unit should be!
Aug 2013, this unit just had a brand new bathroom remodel, for over $10,000. Beautiful tub/shower, with glass tile decos, granite counter with under-mounted sink, and LED lights, you can leave on when you retire, and have a nice night light.
Menehune Shores is a tropical oasis, with beautiful oceanfront grounds to roam. This is a romantic one bedroom oceanfront Kihei Maui condo for 2 persons ONLY, (we do not put in sofa beds); all remodeled and only 30 feet from the edge of the ocean. We have a private lanai at this accommodation, with teak dining table a chaise lounge; incredible 180 degree view of great surf, brilliant sunsets, turtles, whales in season, rainbows; this is definitely a unit for someone who wants to be close to the ocean and enjoys upgraded finishes.
Sitting directly on the beach, only 3 miles from Wailea, and 9 miles from the airport, you have a perfect location with lots of beaches, golf courses, shops, restaurants, snorkel, surfing, fishing, farmers markets, and activities nearby. Amenities include an oceanfront pool, (heated), 2 shuffleboards, gas barbecues oceanside and on the rooftop with 360 degree views, ceiling fans for cooling (we do not have a/c), but rely on those great ocean breezes; plus free parking and free fast WIFI. Unit has been completely remodeled, cable 42 inch HD TV (smart TV) in the living room, DVD with movies, fully equipped kitchen, granite counters, tile floors, washer/dryer, literally all the comforts of home. Rent from owners directly and save. Cancellations will be refunded for all night's able to rebook, minus $200.

Nearest Airport

Car: Recommended

KIhei, Wailea area. RIght on the beach on South Kihei Rd. So close to the ocean, you can't find another building that is closer!! Very convenient too, only 1 mile from Safeway Marketplace, all shops, restaurants, very close by. Walk on the beach for miles, right off the property!

Other Activities: Shuffleboard, Whale Watching, Body Surfing, Surfing


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have been married 40+ years and have had a place in Kona for many years. Loving the ocean, we decided it would be great to go from the high surf of Kona (VRBO 6909) with all the lava rock, to the quiet sandy beaches of Maui. Kihei is a perfect spot, looking out to Molokini and Lanai, watching whales in winter, and enjoying the sunsets. We'd love to share our place with you. You can probably tell, we love the water!

Why the Owner Chose Kihei, HI, USA:
Menehune Shores was built in the 70's, when they allowed building close to the water. So many places are far back, or across roads, but not this one! We feel at home with nature when visiting here. Very close to shopping, airport, art galleries, farmer's markets, aquarium, and harbor; just very convenient.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Whale watching up close and personal from the private lanai (winter season). Long walks on the sandy beaches, right from the property. Swimming on site as well! Watching windsurfers from the lanai. Peaceful,relaxing, private atmosphere. Washer/dryer in the unit for doing up your clothes. Close to all the activities in Maui; no parking or traffic problems like in Lahaina or Kaanapali. We used to own a place in West Maui but it just got very crowded so we sold and purchased in Kihei. For us, it's the perfect peaceful location.
