** 8/26/18 TS Lane Update**

Aloha! Seeing is believing! If you want to know what the current conditions are at my condo you should do a search for “mauirealestate dot net Charley Young Beach at Kamaole I Beach in Kihei” (I cannot provide a link, VRBO won't allow it posted here). This live web cam is exactly 1.9 miles away from my condo. We are very lucky that we are located on the dry side of the island!

Today's update is a happy one for our condo. Hurricane Lane downgraded dramatically into just a tropical storm before it decided to come visit the island of Maui. The wet sides of the island took most of the brunt of the rainfall. My dad's place in Haiku is still without power, internet, and landline phone service, but they are all safe and in good spirits. But Kihei located on the dry side has received very little rain, and in fact the rain that has arrived was welcomed and came slow and gentle. Most days people were still visiting the beach there because that was where they found the best weather through the whole ordeal. Zero impacts upon our condo! We had guests who were there the whole time and they were so confused by all the newscasts too because they kept waiting and waiting and bracing and were prepared for a very nasty storm that never actually arrived for them.

For other areas of Maui and Hawaii in general, yes the wet side did receive lots of rain. There was a road closure on the way to Hana (I don't know if it has been reopened yet). But on all islands the dry sides were where you saw lots of visitors still hanging out on the beach and playing in the ocean, they just didn't get hit at all. Hawaii & Maui is VERY resilient and will quickly recover, this was not their "first rodeo" afterall.

There was also a freak fire that happened out in Lahaina. Apparently they basically had NO RAIN at all! I didn't think there was enough fuel up in those hills to cause such a blaze but unfortunately some homes were lost. The wind was very unpredictable and would gust strongly in multiple directions which just fanned the flames. The terrain was such that it was difficult for them to access all the areas that needed assistance. They still to this day do not know what actually caused the fires (multiple ones) and are still investigating that.

I know specifically some of you have had experience with the devastating hurricanes out in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, New Jersey .... I was watching footage of those and it was really really bad. I wonder if hurricanes that touch down on our mainland are in fact worse? There is so much more land mass to hit after all so effects are much more wide spread. With the islands so much of the storm happened out on the ocean which was able to absorb everything it had... we are so extremely glad and lucky that our normal weather patterns with our trade winds were able to do the job the forecasters were hoping for, predicting, and relying upon... that the trade winds would "shear it"... basically tearing it in half and ripping that storm apart before it reached our islands.

So that is all the info that I have so far, please let me know if you have any questions I'll do my best to answer.

Mahalo!

Tracy

--------------------------------------------

Welcome to Waiohuli Beach Hale ~ a beautiful oceanfront complex in Central Kihei. We've just purchased and completely remodeled our 2nd floor unit and invite you to come enjoy the ocean view, sunsets on the beach, and whale watching in season.

Our beach is very secluded and private. There are no public facilities here (bathrooms, showers, parking lots, etc.) which keeps the crowds located at other beaches. It is also considered a "baby beach" which means it has little to no waves (unless there happen to be strong wind conditions or storms) and the water is shallow for a very long time until you reach the reef. There are SO MANY different amazing Maui beaches, and we want you to see them all! Some are perfect for boogie boarding, snorkeling, surfing, kite & wind surfing you name it... our beach is better suited for escaping the crowds, children enjoying the calm shoreline, swimming, sunning, paddle boarding, relaxing, walking, and enjoying stunning sunsets!

Meanwhile, just a block or two away, are many convenient amenities including Times Grocery Store, Long's Drug, numerous restaurants, retail shopping, nightly musical entertainment, live local theater, a health club, medical clinics, “Kihei 4th Fridays” Town Parties, and much much more. It's just a 10 minute drive to Wailea and 20 minute drive to the Kahului airport (OGG).

Kihei is home to some of the most fabulous beaches on Maui! We provide everything you will need for beach comfort: Tommy Bahama Beach chairs (2), Tommy Bahama Beach Umbrella (1), LARGE beach towels (4), igloo cooler (1). If you wish to rent SUP's (Stand-Up-Paddle) or surf boards, boogie boards, snorkel equipment there are many rental vendors located nearby.

Sleeping for 2-4: Bedroom features a very comfortable Novaform Memory Foam Cal-King Bed. There is also a HD TV, and A/C located in the bedroom. There is a Queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room with additional bedding in storage ottoman.

There is a 43” Smart Samsung HD Television (4k) in the living room, with basic cable service, free Netflix, and DVD player.

There are ceiling fans over the sofa in living room, and also over the Cal King bed in bedroom.

The kitchen has been fully remodeled with new cabinetry, quartz counter-tops, eat in breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, water filter in refrigerator, ice maker in freezer, microwave, dishwasher, Cuisinart coffee maker, professional cookware, toaster, plates, cups, flatware, etc.

There is a bistro table with 2 chairs outside on our lanai area. This is easily our favorite spot to hang out.

The bathroom has new cabinetry with granite sink vanity. There is a hair dryer in the bottom drawer. Tiled shower enclosure. Shampoo/Conditioner/Shower gel provided in shower. There are hooks in shower to hang wet bathing suits.

Condo property has 3 BBQ gas grills and group picnic area located near pool, shuffle board area, a gated 60' x 25' solar heated pool with sun loungers in pool area, coin operated laundry near office (8am-8pm), poolside lounger chairs, and beautiful ocean views. Parking is free.

Come explore and enjoy the beauty of Maui while you make our comfortable condo your home base! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Our condo is a 2nd story unit. We unfortunately do not have elevator service to our condo.

About Tracy

Tracy has lived on Maui off and on for years in Hana, Haiku, and Honokowai and Lane lived on Lanai before we met in Lahaina and married in Napili over 20 years ago. Since moving away to the mainland we have always desired to come back to what we consider paradise. The beauty of Maui has us completely hooked. The sunsets are always amazing. The ocean waters are so clean and warm. We love the views of Haleakala and the west Maui Mountains. Recently we were able to purchase this condo and it has been a labor of love to remodel it and make it our own. Someday the plan is to move here and retire, but we have a few years before we are ready for that. In the meantime we return at least twice a year to this island we love so much to see our family, hug our son, fall in love with our condo again, and get recharged and excited about our future and present lives.

Tracy purchased this condo in 2016

Why Tracy chose Kihei

Having lived on Maui before, we picked Kihei specifically because of it's many beautiful beaches, easy access to awesome restaurants, amazing sunset views and whale watching. It's central location is easily accessible to all parts of the island... and you will want to see it all!

What makes this condo unique

We picked Waiohuli Beach Hale because this is so close to our other condo (just a short 3 minute walk away). We love this location being so close to the ocean, and close to Kihei town center of Azeka Shopping Centers with so many options for shopping, dining, entertainment all within a short walk away.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as described. The location was amazing and the beach, absolutely breathtaking. We saw several sea turtles on our last day! You have all the kitchen essentials you could possibly need. We had a little issue with the lock box (completely our mess up) and the owner reset the code for us within minutes!

Thank you Tracy!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! Perfect location near a beautiful beach with pretty well kept landscaped grounds. The condo was very clean and stocked with everything! We made the mistake of buying a styrofoam cooler at the grocery store before we checked in. Tracy has nice beach chairs and a cooler so it was not needed. We loved the view from our balcony. So peaceful! Thank you!

Nicely remodeled condo in a small and well maintained property on a quiet beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for and we were not disappointed. The condo was clean and modern, the bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedroom was a lifesaver during the summer heat. The ocean view was relaxing as we enjoyed all of our meals on the Lanai. We did a lot of cooking at the condo and it was well apointed with everything we needed to make meals, it even had things for baking if you so desired. We loved that this complex was small and quiet at night. The pool area was simple and well maintained. We enjoyed BBQing most evenings and there was a coin operated laundry on the premises as well. Easy access to the beach for walks and swimming. We saw turtles often on our walks. This area wasn’t very touristy or busy which we really loved.
