This condo was our home for 3 years. We have recently made it available for others to enjoy at very reasonable rates. You will see the love we have put into this great Maui vacation spot. We're looking forward to sharing it with you. Aloha, Ed & Cherie

About Edward Frankel
We(Ed & Cherie) have been married for 43 years and have 3 children and 12 grandchildren. We grew up and were married in Southern California, and after Ed's graduation from UCLA, we moved to Grants Pass, OR in 1976. Ed was a teacher at Hidden Valley High School for 32 years; Cherie was a daycare provider and monitor for the USDA. After several visits to the Hawaiian Islands, we moved to Kihei, HI, where we lived for nearly 5 years, then moved back to Oregon to spend more time with our family.
Edward Frankel purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Edward Frankel chose Kihei
We first rented a condo at Pacific Shores, but soon fell in love with the complex. Beautiful landscaping, a great pool area with 4 barbeques, and only 900 feet from the ocean. The life-style was perfect for us: warm year-round sun, afternoon trade winds, walking distance to our favorite beach, and close to shopping and restaurants. Pacific Shores was in the perfect location for us. In August of 2011, we were blessed to buy an ideal 1st floor condo with nearby parking. So there was never a need to haul groceries and supplies up stairs or an elevator! After several years of making this our home, we moved back to Oregon to spend more time with our family. We recently decided to make the condo a vacation rental for others to enjoy and be available for our personal use as well.

This was our family's 1st trip to the Islands and we had a blast! This condo was super comfy had everything we needed and more! Ed & Cherie were great in communication and making us feel very welcomed. The complex is very well maintained, close to everything...you can hear the live music from the Poolside cafe (down the street/ across the wooded area near the patio) but not so much that it is intrusive... ( FWIW...great place for happy hour...starts @ 3 pm!) the 5 of us slept well...the girls loved the water pressure in the shower ( its the little things..lol) The washer/dryer came in very handy after a day at the beach. Pool and tub were nice to have also. You are super close to everything...the beach is across the street 5 mins walk tops!!...there are places to eat and shop all within walking distance..my wife and I already are missing the morning routine of grabbing coffee and walking back along the beach. If your looking for a great place to stay with owners that go above and beyond at a great price.you couldn't ask for a better place than Ed & Cherie's condo @ Pacific Shores..we sure hope to be back soon!
We loved our stay in Kihei. The apartment was close to many delicious restaurant and fun shops. The apartment was well stocked. We also loved that there were beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkle gear and a cooler available. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean and welcoming. Thank you for the wonderful stay! We will be back.
Thank you, Jennifer, for taking the time to write a review. We were so glad to hear you loved your stay in our condo, and thank you for being our guest.
Perfect location. Quiet, clean, comfortable.
Just returned home from a 12 day trip to Maui where we stayed at Ed and Cherie’s condo. It is located across the street from one of the best beaches in Maui which had calm morning waves and beautiful sunsets. Walk a block south to ABC store, coffee shops, restaurants, shave ice. Walk a few blocks north to playgrounds, more great restaurants (Paia Fish Market is a must try), Foodland to pick up groceries. Condo was clean, nicely furnished, and very well equipped. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom set up was perfect for our family of 4. Condo was cool with a nice breeze when you open up the windows, had overhead fans in every room, and AC in the living room. My 4 yr old also loved the pool and was really sad to leave as this felt like a home away from home. Communication was quick and simple. Thanks Ed and Cherie!
Thank you, Allen, for taking the time to write a review on our condo. You have summarized well the wonderful tropical vacation travelers are experiencing by staying in our condo.
Mahalo and Aloha!
Great location with key extras
We had a very enjoyable stay in Kihei. The location was ideal for a quick walk down to Charley Young beach. We had planned on driving out to other beaches but simply made no sense with the 5min walk. It was also very easy access to the highway to get in and out.
The extras included with the rental (beach chairs & towels, umbrellas, small cooler, snorkel gear, body boards) were much appreciated and allowed us to do whatever we felt like without having to worry about rentals. A few minor issues came up and Edward was quick and efficient at responding to our needs. He even got us brand new snorkel gear when we had issues with some of the other gear. We managed to comfortably fit 5 people in the place with space for everything we had. We also made good use of the washer and dryer, and the kitchen. Thanks for the hospitality Edward! Aloha.
A Very Nice Stay
Our party of 6 (grandparents, kids, and grandkids) stayed at this small Pacific Shores unit December 29-31, 2017. It was very clean and well equipped with all you might need in the kitchen, and we especially enjoyed the very nice beach chairs and umbrellas. The unit is located in the building that is the fartherest from the ocean in the complex, and the exterior is quite spartan, but just a quick walk takes you to the complex pool or across the street to one of Kihei's finest beaches-the Charley Young. Our grandkids loved the very nice HEATED pool and hot tub. The two bedrooms were ample sized with plenty of room for clothes. The pull-out couch was ok, but not really comfortable for 2 people. As an added bonus, Maui has a feral cat problem with way too many on the island; however, there were beautiful (yes, really) feral cats that entertained us as they played outside near our patio. Even though some in our party are not particularly cat fans, we enjoyed them.
Thank you, Julie, for being our guests in Kihei, HI, and thank you for taking the time to write your review.
We are glad to hear your entire family of six were able to enjoy your vacation and be together in a single, clean, comfortable, well-stocked condo for a reasonable price.
We are also glad to hear how you enjoyed the pool area and hot tub (a one minute walk from our condo), and one of the best family beaches in Maui (a five minute walk from our condo), and had an ample amount of beach supplies available.
One clarification I would like to make for our future guests: the couch is a queen-size pull-out sleeper.
Ed & Cherie
Comfortable Kihei condo
Great location with short walk to beautiful beaches. Simple check in. Great amenities in kitchen and excellent to have access to beach equipment, including umbrellas, chairs, snorkels and sand toys for our daughter. One minor issue dealt with immediately with no inconvenience to us. Very accommodating regarding check-out time. Comfortable stay for the 5 of us. We appreciated the highchair and pack and play. We hope to stay here again.
