About the property

Please read entire listing before proceeding with booking.


Watch the striking Maui sunsets from your private, partial ocean view lanai (terrace) on the fourth floor of this updated, and centrally located condo. There is no better place to enjoy your morning coffee, a happy hour cocktail or an evening glass of wine. Come bask in sun, stroll the lush garden areas, and enjoy the resort like amenities and beautiful beach this property has to offer.


The Kauhale Makai Association is conducting lanai (balcony) repairs and general construction on the complex from mid October 2017 till Summer 2018.

The work will be ongoing daily from 8 am to 4 pm, from Monday to Friday, except on the weekends and holidays. Some lanais may be inaccessible due to safety concerns.

Our rates are reflecting a discount compared to the otherwise offered going rates for the duration of the project.

If you are looking to be out and about to be exploring beautiful Maui, this project will likely not impact your stay.

This one bedroom, one bathroom unit is 686 square feet of scenic living. Equipped with a queen-sized bed and a queen sleeper sofa, this space is perfect for up to four people. Enjoy traditional Hawaiian decor, cooling ceiling fans and an oversized private lanai.

ROOM AMENITIES: Smoke Free environment, AC, Free WiFi, Fully Equipped Kitchen (Cooking range/oven, Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Microwave, Blender, Coffee maker, Dishes & silverware) Cable television, DVD/CD player, Ceiling fan, Private lanai, Iron and ironing board, Additional linens and towels, Complimentary starter kit of laundry detergent, shampoo, soap etc. Hair dryer, Beach gear (beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler and a beach umbrella) Free parking.

Located oceanfront in North Kihei, Kauhale Makai (in Hawaiian, “Village by the Sea”) is the ideal location for a family or couples retreat. Two buildings with 168 units stretch towards the ocean on tropical grounds. The complex provides shuffleboard and volleyball courts, a pool, a children’s wading pool, hot tub, a putting green, gas barbecues and even a sauna. Each well-appointed unit includes its very own private lanai (balcony). The complex also has coin-operated laundry facilities on property for your convenience. Kauhale Makai’s location on South Kihei Road makes it the perfect base for exploring this magical island. Just minutes away are some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, superb shopping, renowned restaurants, and world-class golf.

I am always available to be reached via email or phone. We have a Housekeeper on call, and an additional cleaning could be arranged at a $50 fee. Generally our long stay guests take advantage of this service. Our Maintenance crew is on call and can assist at any time. Check-in and Check-out are very simple. We send you a pre-arrival email that has all necessary information on how to get to the condo, what the electronic door lock code is, pool and laundry access codes, etc. We recommend you print the email prior to the trip or saving it on your smart phone to easily access it when you arrive at the complex. A private Concierge is always standing by to help with any activity bookings, island recommendations and restaurant reservations.

Maui’s unique and varied terrain offers a multitude of activities. From relaxing on some of the world’s most beautiful white sand beaches to the more adventurous undertakings of zip-lining and paragliding. Kauhale Makai's location is such that there are many activities and attractions right at your finger tips. Some of Maui’s top attractions are: Maalaea Harbor - 6 miles - Many boats leave from Maalaea on snorkeling trips, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, whale watching (in season), sunset cruises, and more. It is much faster to leave from Maalaea Harbor than Lahaina Harbor when taking trips to Molokini Crater and Turtle Town. Other attractions include Maui Ocean Center, Haleakala Volcano, Shops at Wailea, Iao Valley, Wailea Golf Club, King Kamehameha Golf Club, Maui Tropical Plantation, and the Whale Sanctuary. The town of Kihei is a quant, laid-back beach town boasting some of Maui’s most pristine stretches of white sand and turquoise waters. South Maui is fun for couples and families alike. You can find anything you need in Kihei from McDonald’s, to local favorites such as Coconuts Fish Cafe to the fine dining of Sarento’s. There are several shopping areas with familiar grocery stores such as Safeway and others with local markets like Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods. Maui’s south side offers calmer ocean conditions than the North Shore making it great for swimming, boogie boarding, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, tide pooling, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, and whale watching (in season).

I always recommend renting a car. We have access to better rates with AVIS and BUDGET, please contact me so I can assist you with booking. If renting a car is not an option for you, the Maui Bus actually has a stop right in front of this complex. I would recommend visiting the Maui County website for transit information and bus schedules.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We appreciated the cooler, boogie boards, and chairs that we could use during our stay. I can't comment on the common areas at the condo (pool/hot tub etc.) since we spent almost all of our time off the property, but the trash chutes were convenient and the check-in staff were very friendly and welcoming. The views off the lanai were beautiful and the complex was pretty quiet. The mattress in the bedroom was very comfortable. Location was great, but I recommend having a car (you'll want to explore the rest of the island anyways!). A few grocery stores, many restaurants and shops are all within a 5 minute drive of the apartment. There are definitely stores and beaches within walking distance, but we found the best beaches a short drive away. We rented a jeep which was perfect for the beautiful maui weather! Parking was a breeze at the apartment (you get an assigned spot) and Viktoria has discounted rental car links you can use to get a great deal). Stay at Viktoria's place and you won't be disappointed!

Very clean and well stocked condo unit in a good beachfront location. The property is dated, but is well maintained. The condo management company, Sunny Maui, was very helpful and professional. Had a great time!

Great location, well-stocked and awesome lanai view

  • 5 of 5

Kauhale Makai is a beautiful property and the staff were super helpful. Unit 425 has great views of Haleakala and the Kihei Beach out front. Beach out front is swimmable, but you'll find nicer beaches down the road as you travel south. Unit 425 includes all your essential needs, and then some. Cooler and beach gear (flippers, mask, body boards, beach umbrella) and kitchen essentials were awesome to have. Mahalo!!! Two thumbs up! We'll be back, at some point!

Ok but wouldn't stay again

  • 3 of 5

First impressions. The front desk lady was unfriendly when we got there. I kept talking to her and finally she warmed a bit. I felt the office opening so late(9:30) was inconvenient. Condo was updated in some places, not others. Very stained shag carpet in bedroom. We re-mopped floors ourselves in kitchen and living room areas after noticing our feet getting dirty. Being over a parking lot meant listening to many car horns as people locked up. The hot tub was not turned in until 4 pm. I prefer to hot tub after my morning exercise.

On the positive side, the kitchen was well stocked. There were also many beach accessories and nice towels. There were nice outdoor barbeques. The office did not charge to print our boarding passes.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Mahalo for your time submitting your feedback. We were troubled by your comments and shared it with our teams since. Mahalo for the positive notes about the kitchen being well stocked and about the amenities the unit and the complex provides. Regarding the floors, I sincerely apologize. While it is not acceptable for the floors to be less than immaculate, I truly wish this was brought to our attention during your visit to have allowed us to address immediately. We have a team of dedicated guest service professionals standing by to assist our guests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thank you for providing details about your experience at the Front Desk, we will surely share with the association operating the desk on site. We apologize for your experiences at the complex. Thank you for staying with us. Warm Aloha, Viktoria

Lovely Kihei resort, great accommodations

  • 4 of 5

The resort is a bit of a walk from the beach, but we did have an ocean view from our room, which contained everything we needed for outings -- beach towels, chairs, a small cooler, even snorkel fins! Well equipped kitchen and a lanai with two tables and chairs. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Great place in a central location

  • 5 of 5

My gf and I stayed here for 5 days around Thanksgiving 2016. We really liked the place and it was exactly as pictured. Everything was spotless and organized. The host company was helpful and sent us an email with all the events that were happening in Maui during our stay. They also gave us good recommendations for restaurants, Luau, snorkeling, etc.

The location is very central especially if you plan to spend more time in the southern part of the Island. I would highly recommend eating at Coconut Fish Cafe (it's close by) and "Fork & Salad". BTW .. we used Maui Wave Riders for our surf lessons and would also highly recommend them.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Nice condo, a great value!

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I were very happy with the condo and its location (right on the beach and close to shopping). It was clean and cozy, and we loved that it had a well-stocked kitchen and beach gear! We made good use of the blender (making pina coladas to enjoy on the balcony), as well as the little cooler and beach chairs. My previous visits to Maui were spent at hotels, and after this experience I definitely prefer the convenience of being in a condo. The property overall was well maintained and the on-site staff were friendly and helpful. The property managers for this unit were wonderful---not only were they great at communicating and sending us information, but when I discovered I had left behind some souvenirs they very kindly mailed them to me! I would definitely stay here again.
