Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
My husband and I live in Oregon. We both have a love of the ocean and we have purchased condos in great beach towns along the beautiful Columbia River. As a means of satisfying our desire to live near the water. Maui has always been at the top of our list of places we enjoy so it was natural for us to find a home on the island we have come to know so well. We definitely believe that 'Maui no ka oi' Maui is the best!
Owner purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Owner chose Kihei
We have always enjoyed the beaches of South Maui and fell in love with the beautiful grounds of Maui Kamaole. Even today, when I walk into H-208 I say WOW as I look at the view!
What makes this Condo unique
The sunsets are truly spectacular. The close proximity to one of the best snorkeling/family beaches is awesome. The property has 2 pools and a tennis court. It's within walking distance of restaurants and shops.

Wonderful and Quiet
Condo was well appointed. The only issue was owner required us to be lectured for 10 minutes over the phone on VRBO etiquette before giving out access code over the phone. If I arrived later due to flight time etc this would have been a issue. Also, cleaning staff arrived at 9 am for 11 am checkout time. Check in process could have gone much smoother if the owner just got out of the way.
This our third stay in the Maui Kamaole complex and we love this location. This second floor unit had a terrific view of the ocean from the lanai and the master bedroom and it was a very quiet unit. Some of the furniture and carpet could use an update, but the kitchen is so well stocked with dishes, glassware, pots/pans, utensils, and the view so nice that we would definitely stay here another year. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lush landscaping.
Great location, a few updates could give it 5 stars
This condo is in a great location. An easy 5 minute walk to the beach or 1 minute drive away (parking is easy and spaces were always available when we parked at the beach).
If you are looking to explore all of Maui, this spot in Kihei offers a great central location to get everywhere. The space is clean with a fully stocked kitchen with all sorts of cookware. If you are a coffee lover it even has a coffee grinder.
We did not do too much cooking as we wanted to explore the food scene in Maui.
For the $587/night after taxes and fees a few upgrades would be appreciated. We realized the island is expensive overall and for the money the space was good, location great and the condo even has a nice large washer/dryer and pretty views of the ocean.
A few things that would make this spot 5 stars would be to purchase new sheets/comforter/towels. We found the bath and beach towels to be old hotel towels, small and some fraying. The sheets and comforters seemed older and were thin and the elastic worn, every morning we had to remake the bed.
Wen was a great host however, a quick communicator and offered a flawlessly smooth checkin process. Overall, great location, fully stocked kitchen, easy parking and beach access and pretty views from the balcony.
Beautiful condo - Beatiful ocean view
The condo was awesome and had everything we needed. It was very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was an extensive amount of beach toys, snorkels, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, and towels for us to use. BBQs just outside the unit. The views from the balcony were spectacular. Very easy and short walk to the beach. The owner Wen was great and easy to work with. We'll be back!
We loved it! Family of 5 (3 kids)
We had a wonderful stay in your condo! We are a family of 5 (3 children ages 10, 9 and 8) and felt very comfortable! This was our first time to Hawaii and we didn't want to ever leave!
Big positives for us regarding the condo itself:
-In addition to the king bed upstairs (and downstairs too), they have an air mattress which came in handy for our youngest child. Lots of extra sheets/ pillowcases too.
-Kitchen had all of the pots, pans & appliances we needed (and we did a lot of cooking)
-The grill is clean and very close to the condo
-Washer and Dryer were large and looked to be new
-Balcony overlooking the ocean was a highlight!
- Thankful for the beach towels, small cooler, sand toys, boogie boards other outdoor activity equipment provided.
- VERY easy walk to the Kamaole beaches and to stores/ restaurants nearby. We walked the beach most mornings and evenings.
-The sun sets are breathtaking from either the balcony or the beach
-The condo grounds were beautiful and well-kept. Easy to walk to the pool.
-Really it is the BEST location to drive anywhere on the island! We visited 7 different beaches, drove to Hana, up to the volcano, to a Luau in Lahina and to the port for a snorkel boat trip.
- HIGHLY recommend the city of Kihei! It is very residential and everything is convenient from this area of the island. We visited so many areas and loved ours the best.
We had one issue with the coffee pot, but the owner was responsive and had a new one to us within the same day. Thank you from these two huge coffee drinkers!
Recommendations for restaurants/snacks:
-Maui Brick Over Pizza
-Maui Bread Company (we probably went there every day- get the POG bread)
-Coconuts(Fish tacos and poke were great!)
-Paia Fish Market (inexpensive, but yummy fish tacos)
-The Cinnamon Roll Place (huge cinnamon rolls and good Kona coffee)
-Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice (we tried several companies and this one was the best)
-If doing the road to Hana, stop at the coconut Ice cream shack about 1/2 way there. It was worth the stop/ money.
We would definitely stay here again! We loved waking to the beautiful view. The condo has plenty of space for a family to enjoy a week or more on this amazing island.
Thank you again!!!
