"This was our second visit to Kihei; our first stay at Menehune Shores. The condo was as advertised. We found it to be clean and very well stocked in the kitchen and also with beach chairs, toys, body boards, snorkeling equipment. Working with the owner was easy and she was very responsive. The beds were comfortable, and it was nice to have the two bathrooms. There is access to the beach going south for quite a distance if you enjoy just walking on the beach. There is a man-made stone fish wall that spans the length of the building in the ocean. This keeps the water in front of the building very calm, which means you won't hear crashing surf and it's quite easy to swim and just play around in the water there without any waves. It's very sandy in the water. This unit is on the very end of the building closest to the main road that runs through Kihei. It means you have extra windows and more cross-ventilation in the unit, but also means you hear continuous traffic noise, and because the water is so calm at this part of the beach, you don't have the crashing surf to drown out the noise. The lanai didn't have a completely straight on view of the ocean because it was at the end of the building, but still had a lovely view and we enjoyed several wonderful sunsets there. The building is towards the northern part of the city which means that you're not necessarily within walking distance of a lot of the commercial part of the city, but also means it's not as crowded and easier to get from there to other parts of the island. Kihei is very centrally located on the western side of the island to a lot of other places to visit and is relatively affordable. We really enjoyed our stay at this condo and our experience in renting it."
