About the property

Condo 2 Bedroom / 2 Bath (sleep 4 Adults)

Menehune Shores unit 601!!! Penthouse top floor apartment with high living room ceilings, wonderful views of Ma'alaea Bay and Maui Komohana (the West Maui Mountains) and recent upgrades has everything necessary for a relaxing stay on the Valley Isle.

Our unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, excellent views, high ceilings, and a layout which provides privacy to each of the bedrooms. The kitchen and baths have been upgraded and last year we added new carpet, drapes and ceiling fans.Our unit does *not* have central air conditioning, but the ceiling fans run off the rooftop solar panels and we think they do a good job of moving the air around the apartment. There is a stacked washer/dryer unit conveniently located in the hall closet near the master bedroom.

There is one California king bed in the master bedroom and two twins in the second bedroom which can be converted to a reasonable facsimile of a king bed, making the unit ideal for four people. The unit includes a fully equipped kitchen, cable television, free local phone service, high-speed internet, and a private lanai. This lanai, accessible from both the master bedroom and the living room, has Ma'alaea Bay and West Maui Mountain views, and that is where we end up spending most of our time. We think you will, too.

Menehune Shores is an oceanfront complex in a low density, peaceful area of North Kihei, twenty minutes from the airport between Maalaea harbor and Wailea. Truly oceanfront, the complex is adjacent to a protected swimming and snorkeling beach and also the five mile long Sugar Beach which extends from the property north to Maalaea, and is perfect for long morning and sunset walks.

A heated pool and BBQ area are located in the tropically landscaped seaside grounds, and a rooftop BBQ and dining area provides stunning views of the ocean, Haleakala, the West Maui Mountains, Molokini, Kahoolawe, and Lanai. It is an ideal place to watch for whales in the winter and relax and enjoy Maui’s breathtaking sunsets each and every evening of the year.

The property features an immaculately kept lawn area, a shuffleboard court, an on-site restaurant, a swimming pool and two BBQ areas. It sits next to the historic 16th century royal fish pond of Kalepolepo. The property is an excellent location for stunning sunsets, swimming, romantic beach strolling, and seasonal whale watching.

The complex is located minutes away from shopping and dining areas that will take care of all your vacation needs. Additionally, an authentic Indian restaurant - Monsoon India - with a full bar and spectacular views is conveniently located on the ground floor of the complex.

Menehune Shores offers:

-roof BBQ area


-ground level BBQ area

-free on site parking

-fully equipped kitchens

-washers & dryers

About Malinee Kruasing (RS61555)


We are long-term residents of central Japan (now in our 22nd year) but we're originally from San Francisco, CA and West Yarmouth, MA. It is an understatement to say we like to travel. We have been fortunate enough to see some of the prettiest places on the planet and yet we always seem to return to the Kihei area so in 2013 we bought this apartment which we hope to someday make into a more permanent home.

Local Rental Agent:

I’m the on-island property manager from RE/MAX Resort Realty with five years of concierge experience at Four Stars Maui resorts. Always available, I’m just a phone call away to answer your questions and make sure that you have everything you need during your stay.

Maui…True Paradise!!! You will enjoy your vacation in our unit and will want to come back again!!!

Malinee Kruasing (RS61555) purchased this condo in 2013

Why Malinee Kruasing (RS61555) chose Kihei

We chose this top floor apartment because of the bright and airy feel created by the high living room and master bedroom ceilings. It has an excellent layout, wonderful views of Ma'alaea Bay and Maui Komohana (the West Maui Mountains) and a very convenient location. Small but efficient, we think #601 has everything necessary for a relaxing stay on the Valley Isle.

What makes this condo unique

Though the apartment is on the smaller side, it has a layout which provides privacy (and separate bathrooms) to each of the two bedrooms. The property may have been built in 1976, but our HOA takes great pride in keeping the building and the grounds (including the pool and ground floor barbecues) well-maintained and very clean. The views from the rooftop bbq area are also absolutely spectacular.

Great spot in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family! The condo had everything we needed. This is the very last unit at the end and so we wondered what the view would be like, but the view was absolutely glorious. It’s a perfect spot for watching the sunset while having a cocktail on the balcony or reading a book with your coffee in the morning. We could even see the pool so the girls could just go down and swim in the pool or jump into the protected area of the ocean and we felt very secure. The condo is also on the north end of Kihei so it’s extremely convenient to get to other parts of the island and also a super short drive to the best shave ice in town… The original Ululanis

A wonderful place to spend 8 days in Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we were looking for. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and everything is clean and well maintained. Kitchen is well equipped (except no pizza cutter 😄?) - everything from coffee pot or French press for your coffee needs to blue ice packs in the freezer for your picnic lunch. This was the perfect place to call home while in Hawaii.

Hawaii Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Mahalo to Malinee for our stay at Menehune Shores. The view was everything we had hoped for. My Mother grew up in Maui and wanted to come home for a visit. My Mom, husband and sister stayed at the condo. It was spacious and well stocked. The rooftop area was amazing, we spent many nights watching the sunset enjoying our evening dinners there when we weren't sitting on the lanai enjoying the view. The photos were not deceiving, in fact the photos did not do justice to the view. The complex was just the right size, it had all the amenities as the large resorts without all the resort fees and crowds. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because there was no air conditioning and I am from Washington state and not accustom to the humid weather, I am also very spoiled with my bed and wish the beds were just a little more comfortable. That being said we felt at home and would come back in a minute.
