About the property

Our 654 sf. garden view condo is 1 Bedroom king size bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our comfortably furnished Kihei Kai Nani vacation condo will be your home away from home. Located in a lush tropical setting; palms, vibrant flowering trees, and the sweet perfume of plumeria and hibiscus will surround you. Afternoon tradewinds and interior fans keep our condo comfortable year round.

Our furnishings are tropical as is the wall art, and we offer all the amenities of home including a kingsize bed and full size Bosch washer and dryer. The kitchen is complete with all large and small appliances and plenty of table ware. You will enjoy watching the 42' Samsung Smart TV & DVD player, complete with film library, and we provide free cable, WiFi, and Canada calls. Dine indoors or out on the lanai and enjoy the antics of the many varieties of birds in the nearby trees, or lounge with a good book at Kihei Kai Nani's large beautifully renovated swimming pool. Of course we provide beach chairs, umbrella, towels, cooler and mats for your beach use.

Don't forget we are a NON-SMOKING RESORT.

Beautiful Kamaole Beach II, only a five minute stroll from our front door, awaits you for a morning swim or snorkel in its warm, blue waters with sea turtles and tropical fish; and at sunset to bask in the glow of a radiant sky while the gentle surf teases you to return for an evening dip, or to take a barefoot walk along the surf-line. In the winter months, humpback whales will entertain you as they frolic in the nearby sea.

Kihei is centrally located for all of Maui's activities. Shopping and restaurants are an easy walk away, and Wailea, the home of elegant resorts and world-class golf courses, is just minutes away by car. The famed Maui ocean center with our acquarium is located in nearby Ma'alaea, where you can also book your whale watching and boat adventures.

About Carole Eiserloh

We are both retired; Lothar as a San Francisco, CA juvenile probation officer, and Carole as a high school English/history teacher/librarian. We have 2 wonderful sons and 4 fantastic grandchildren living in Hawaii. We split our year between CA and HI, enjoying spending time with family and friends in both places. We also enjoy traveling to far-away places. In Maui, we ocean swim and snorkel every morning at our lovely Kameole Beach, just across the road. We also enjoy water aerobics and long beach walks, especially at sunset. Carole loves to cook and entertain family and friends in Maui and San Francisco. We both love to read and watch good films, and enjoy listening to both classical and folk music- especially if we can sing along!

Carole Eiserloh purchased this condo in 1984

Why Carole Eiserloh chose Kihei

We bought our KaiNani condo in 1984 on our first visit to Maui. We fell in love with the beautiful gardens, fabulous Kamaole beaches and the warm aloha feeling on the property. KaiNani really is like a small village. People here really care about their environment and neighbors. We use this unit as our rental unit and for family and friends visits. Our grandchildren have grown up visiting us here and love 'our' beach and pool. We can't imagine a better vacation for them (or us).

What makes this condo unique

We hope you'll enjoy dining on our lanai, watching our visiting birds and enjoying the beautiful blossoms of every hue, as well as the tropical scents they send to remind you that Maui no ka oi! (Maui is the best!). Our winter guests have the added benefit of watching hump back whales blowing and leaping right from our Kamaole beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for your very nice review. We're so glad your stay was a good one. We try to make all our guests feel welcome and feel it is their home away from home. Hope to see you again!

With Aloha,

Carole & Lothar

Nice quiet condo in the heart of Kihei right across from Kam 2 Beach. Awesome!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was about as far away from the main street as possible so that you did not hear any street noise which was great. The condo is very quiet and on the top floor so it felt very private and secure. There's no AC in the unit but it comes with ceiling fans so it was totally fine for our stay which was the last two weeks in December. Might be a bit more challenging to sleep during the August and September. The unit was also well equipped with beach stuff and had an awesome front loading washer and dryer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Glad our condo met your needs well even without AC. Actually, we haven’t required AC, even during the summer, because we are faced North-South, thus always have cross breezes, and we never have direct sun in our condo, as those facing East-West do. Our ceiling fans have seemed to do the job well even for our summer guests. We wish you a happy and healthy 2018. Carole and Lothar

Perfect Place in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect from initial contact through our entire stay! Easy access and check in- no key needed. Walking distance to best beaches and restaurants. Condo literally has EVERYTHING you could need from kitchen to bathroom to the books of hand written suggestions of things to do around the island. Also has beach chairs, towels, cooler, noodles on the launi. Condo itself is clearly full of love and was the perfect getaway for our honeymoon portion in Maui. Kihei is the perfect location as it is the same distance from all other sights on the island that you'll want to see. (about 20-30min drive to west/central/east Maui).

Mahalo, Carole and Lothar!

A place where you can feel the love

  • 5 of 5

Carole and Lothar's condo is one where you feel instantly at home. The detail that went into each room when setting it up makes the stay so convenient, it's amazing. We haven't missed a single thing and the kitchen brought smiles on our faces as everything you can think of is there, making cooking easy. The location of the condo is great, a short walk down along the complex, cross the street and you are on Kam II, great for snorkeling or a quick morning swim before breakfast on the balcony ... the sunsets on the beach are stunning and definitely not to be missed. Kihei is perfect for exploring the island as well as for shopping, not to forget some really nice restaurants within walking distance.

Carole was very quick in her responses and all the information we received prior to arrival and while being there were great and we felt welcomed from the very first contact. Thanks again for sharing your place with us.

Two Wonderful Vacations

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying in Carole & Lothar's condo on two occasions, first for three weeks in April 2014 and the second for a month in April 2015. This was our first experience going on vacation without our RV or staying in a resort, and to be quite frank, we were apprehensive. Our initial contacts with Carole quickly alleviated any concerns we had, and once we saw the property, we knew we had made the right choice. Kihei Kai Nani is well situated to enjoy everything Maui has to offer. The gorgeous views of Haleakala, the pristine Kamaole Beach, central to venture out to Wailea, Lahaina, Kahului, easy access to the Road to Hana, and many more activities make this a perfect location. The condo itself is cozy and very comfortable. Carole and Lothar have certainly equipped their home with all the necessities to make staying here feel like being at home. Extras including accessories for spending the day at the beach such as beach chairs, coolers and an umbrella ensure you will enjoy activities without buying stuff you can't or don't want to carry on the plane!!! And while we wouldn't recommend planning for rain days (think we saw about 10 drops on 1 day out of the two trips), there's a new smart TV, books and games to occupy anyone. In summary, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly both times in Maui. Staying in Carole and Lothar's condo made us immediately feel at home and free to lay back and be ourselves. If the Canadian dollar had been a little less beaten by the U.S. greenback, I'm sure we would have been back again in 2016!!!! The only downside is both our trips have coincided with Carole and Lothar being away on trips of their own, and we have yet to actually meet them face to face, something we sincerely look forward to!!!

Great location, great condo and great stay

  • 5 of 5

I will not repeat what's already been written (very useful by the way, thank you all past reviewers) but rather complete it. My husband Marc and I are just back from Maui and we wanted to share how much we appreciated our stay at Carole and Lothar's condo. First, thank you you both for your kindness, you are a lovely couple. Second, we stayed two weeks and loved it. We also agree that Kihei is the best place to stay in Maui (weather conditions), but also this condo is very quiet, clean, with a very pleasant and private balcony, absolutely fully equipped (beach towels, cooler, diswasher, washing and drying machine etc, everything that you can think of). Nice to know that the resort has a very nice pool, and there are many cute little shopping centers nearby (when I say nearby, it's a one minute walking distance). Finally it's just in front of several beaches & close to many great snorkeling areas.

Also very easy from Kihei to reach all parts of the island. We definitely recommend this place and would stay here again if we were to come back to Maui.
