This condo is in one of the most desirable LOCATIONS in sunny South Kihei.

Without ever driving, you are 1 block from Maui’s BEST (least crowded)

white sandy beach, CHARLEY YOUNG BEACH which turns into Kamaole Beach I.

* Kids will love the largest playground right across the condo and

* Teenagers will enjoy taking surf lessons right across or watch the lessons

being thought right from your lanai.

You are 5 min. from the world famous WEDDING resort, shops and restaurant of WAILEA, and

10 min. from the MAKENA Beaches (ranked # 1 in the World for many years)

The wide sandy shoreline allow for great walking or jogging.

It is also one of the safest beaches with calm waters to enjoy swimming

and snorkeling with some fishes and gentle sea turtles to observe.

We will provide you with local experiences on how to find the turtles,

and many wonderful hidden away beaches. (If you like to get away from it all)

We can also provide you with info on discounted car rental info.

You can rent surfing gear, bikes, kayaks etc. downstairs in building

We love it and so do my guests!!!

This e-mail below I just got last month and it summarizes nicely what you can expect when staying here.

Hi Dorli,

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Our family stay well exceeded our expectations. The locale of the condo was incredible, from the ocean views & palms, to the mellow local beach, kids’ playground & great places to eat & hear live music. We ate our breakfasts on the lanai every morning, with a cup of Kona Gold in hand, while watching whales spout & breach close to shore.

Big bonus, that all the amenities you would need, surf lessons, nail bar, local car rental, grocery, all just 5 minutes walk from the condo. We just flew in & chilled out on the local beach for the first week. Charley Young Beach is very sheltered, shallow & warm. Perfect hang for sandcastle building, jumping the big “Kahunas” & boogie boarding with kids. The second week, we ventured out to check out the amazing natural places & other beaches of the island.

The condo was very clean, nicely decorated & was well stocked with all that we required, from boogie boards, to the blender for fresh pineapple smoothies.

We enjoyed countless sunsets, rainbows & stargazing at night, from the lanai.

Thanks again.

'I got the pay pal receipt for the deposit. Mahalo! We had such an amazing time in Hawaii!!

I knew we'd have a great time but it was above and beyond what we could've imagined.

Our flight getting there was delayed for 14 hours (we had to make an emergency landing in LA), but it was well worth the wait.

We hope to make it back there one day! Many mahalos for your wonderful condo!

About Dorli

Aloha, this is Sigi and Dorli the delighted owners! We are originally from Austria but call San Diego our ‘home base’ for almost 30 years now. (“Ja wier sprechen noch Deutsch”.)

With each passing year we are craving warmer climate, gentler oceans and the healing effects of that so very reliable sunshine nurturing our maturing bodies. We fell in love with Maui about 12 years ago and explored, investigated and mingled with locals to learn and understand this beautiful island from every angle. We discovered that the South Side has the most sunshine on the island, (which included this South Kihei area) so we knew this is ‘just what the doctor ordered.’

Dorli purchased this condo in 2005

Why Dorli chose Kihei

After buying our 1 bd. condo 2 years before we saw that it was always booked when we wanted to come and guest responds was so positive, (they loved the view and location just like we did), we took the ‘plunge’ and invested in this beautiful condo so our whole family could stay together. This unit has one of the most UNIQUE floor plans and allows for complete privacy when sharing with other family members or friends. (See floor plan on website) 2 separate entries, a double lanai and incredible unobstructed views of the ocean and shoreline are so astoundingly striking that it still puts us in awe every time we stay here.


The water of the beaches near the condo is calm (no undercurrent or big waves) and you can see the ground, which is SUPER important for me! (That would be Dorli and I need to know what I am stepping into!) Yes I am proud to say that we have tried ALL the beaches before investing in this location as there are so many options to choose from. We have been thrown and swirled around by a surprising wave or dragged out by a current testing other areas.

But not at this beach. To Sigi’s delight he can now leave me in the water alone attending to his rejuvenating 'power brake' (nap) under the beach umbrella while I frolic in the appealing ocean near the condo. He doesn’t miss the harsh awakening of my screams or the unsuccessful searches for my lost snorkel mask that got ripped off in a surprise ‘attack’ from an unsuspected wave. The water is save here. Yippee! It truly is paradise for all of us!


The location of our condo allows us to walk to everything we need. This is a great area where you can explore many wonderful beaches, visit stores to buy the perfect gift and splurge on many local and enticing restaurants, or just get that tempting ice cream with mango flavor.

What makes this condo unique

1. We LOVE it UNCROWDED and CONVENIENT! Our condo is just far enough north, to be away from the huge timeshares and resorts, which makes ‘our’ beach the least crowded.

2. Our unit is not facing S. Kihei Rd. so you will not be bothered by that street traffic.

3. We enjoy the safety of this building, as many of our neighbors are living here full time. There is always somebody home, doors and windows are open and the brake-ins you hear about Maui do not happen in a building like ours.

* 4. I love doing yoga in the grass across the condo early mornings with the waves calming my mind while the first sunrays over Haleakala extend their golden rays along the horizon painting spectacular colors over the coastline. It's absolutely stunning and you have to come and explore on your own.

It would be so lovely to see you here and we promise you the best service possible. By renting with us, you are keeping our dream alive and in return we will try our VERY BEST to offer you as much guidance, and service as possible to make your stay comforting and enjoyable from the moment you are planning this trip. We can provide you with valuable Maui insights especially if traveling for the first time.

Meanwhile have a great Aloha Day and Malama pono. (Take good care :-)

With much gratitude,

Dorli and Sigi

(I know it can get overwhelming out there and I am here to help!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we stepped in here, greeted by a very beautiful home immaculately kept and very tastefully decorated. We had a memorable stay and had a fabulous time on the island. Thank you for making our 1st anniversary so wonderful! Mahalo!P+J

Love this place! Location - Location - Location

Wanted to let people know that renting from Dorli was an absolute pleasure. This is an owner who cares about her property and it shows! This was a fabulous condo with an amazing view. Clean and neat, very well equipped! The beds were comfortable ... plenty of towels and soft and comfy sheets. All the kitchen "stuff" we needed. We ate in quite a bit and we spent most of our time sunning on the beach and swimming with sea turtles! Grocery store is close, also many terrific restaurant choices -- from inexpensive to big $$$ We certainly couldn't ask for anything more ...

Be prepared for beautiful sunsets from the patio.

Rent this condo from Dorli ... you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thanks Julie for taking the time to review my condo, that was very kind of you. I am glad you had a fabulous time. We love our condo too and my mom will just sit on the lani all day long and watch all the activities going on from high above. Hope to see you back some day. Dorli

Great location, condo and owner!

  • 5 of 5

All of the thoughtful communication from Dorli and the amenities shared along with the condo made our family feel welcomed and at home in this fabulous rental. The beach chairs and boogie boards were daily accessories, and the lanai is the perfect spot to enjoy coffee while watching the sunrise. The location was perfect to walk to anything we needed - food, shopping, and most importantly the beach! I can not recommend this rental and owner enough - mahalo Maui loa!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in Dorli's condo during our family vacation. The location was ideal for us and the condo was comfortable and met our needs perfectly.

My husband and I slept in the master bedroom, my 2 teenage daughter's slept in the 2nd bedroom (there's the option to have the twin beds arranged for you apart or together as a king bed), and my 9 year old daughter slept on the pullout couch in the living room (she said it was comfortable). There was plenty of room for all of us.

The lanai was roomy and had a great view of the surf/SUP shop across the street and we enjoyed having our coffee out there every morning while watching them set up and give surf lessons. You can even watch them progress into the water and catch some waves!

There were lots of nice beach spots close by. Within walking and driving distance. And Dorli had so much available for use at the beach, including a big cooler, beach chairs, towels, flippers and water shoes of all sizes, snorkel gear, and boogie boards.

It was really nice to have the comforts of a/c when it got too hot (although closing the curtains during the heat of the day and opening windows and doors up in the evening and morning kept things fairly cool). There were a couple of previous reviews that mentioned bugs, but having lived on a tropical island myself for a few years it's near impossible to keep the outside from getting in. Following Dorli's rule of keeping all food items in the fridge was great and we never had an issue with bugs while we were there. Wish I had known that trick when I lived on Guam!

We really enjoyed utilizing the pool and grill area. I was worried about the pool because of other reviews saying it was too small, but it was great for our family. Perfect for the kids to play in especially with the pool toys provided in the condo. The grill area is super clean with 2 really nice gas grills for use. There was hardly anyone ever using them.

We did not know much about where to stay on Maui prior to our visit but we were so glad we were staying here. We kept saying throughout our stay how glad we were that we stayed in Kihei and how great of a location the condo was. There were so many shops, and great restaurants within steps of the front door. The vibe in this area is much more local and less touristy, as it is in Lahaina. There were quite a few days while there that we didn't even get into our rental car.

Long story short, we were very happy we stayed in Dorli's condo!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you so much for taking the time to write such thoughtful words about your experience in my condo on Maui. It makes my heart smile and lighten up the rest of the day to see that efforts and hard work is rewarded in that your family was able to enjoy their long planned trip with such positive memories. I wish I would have the talent to write like that as it is a much better description then I could ever do on what to expect. You words encourage me to keep on listening to guests so I am can provide a comfy experience when they choose us. I know it makes a difference as when speaking with guest renting other units, they are surprised what I offer my guests. Maybe some of them get to read your words before they choose a condo and trust our name and words and even book with us directly. (despite all the scary stories and warnings out there) Glad you liked the 'bug' trick, I learned that by reading the guestbook in the condo and wondering why some guests notice our little tropical bugs. I have learned a long time ago that food left out is like a bait for them, and especially when traveling with kids, their little crumbs are often left behind to invite them . I figured I share and I am glad to hear that you did notice the difference With warm Aloha and gratitude Dorli.
