Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 6 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, wifi, washer/dryer, pool, BBQs

You'll find our "Condo Video Tour" under Photos (it's the last image) which shows you how nice this condo looks & the Oceanfront view. Two bedroom, two bath, oceanfront condo: gorgeous ocean views are amplified by mirrors and invite the dramatic beauty of Hawaii into the comforts of relaxing at home. This non-smoking condo is excellent for families or two couples.

Menehune Shores is a peaceful, oceanfront condo on the ground floor close to the calm sparkling bay of North Kihei. Your patio overlooks the seashore, grassy slopes and over the ocean, along with a distant island. You will often see spectacular wind surfing and fantastic, dramatic sunsets. Humpback whales can often be seen from the condo December through April. In addition to this exclusive serene ocean view, the unit contains ceiling fans in each room, a fully remodeled kitchen and a washer/dryer in the unit for convenience.

Time at Menehuni Shores: ''It's a beautiful location with a million dollar view of the ocean and beach. You have provided everything that your guests could possibly need. The ground floor location worked out fine for the wheelchair. We have come home with great tans and feeling very relaxed and renewed. I hope we can use it again in the future...''

Menehune Shores Beach:

Menehune Shores is steps from the beach. There are no roads or buildings in the way of the gorgeous ocean view. The beach is calm like the bay, the water is shallow, great views, beautiful sunsets, and perfect for walks. This beach is secluded; you'll not see a lot of people.

About Michael Gach

I am an author of seven books on acupressure, which uses the same points as acupuncture, but I teach how to relieve stress and pain with your hands instead of needles.

My wife Barbara and I love Maui. We want our guests to fully enjoy Maui's beauty. I know Maui like the palm of my hand, and offer to give guests detailed guidance to find wonderful places and great restaurants.

We go out of our way to make our condos especially nice. For instance, we pay extra to have Hope host all our units. Hope does a fabulous job making sure that everything in the condo is clean and our guests have what they need. She is known to go out of her way to get our guests what they need and she does it from the heart with aloha.

Michael Gach purchased this condo in 2002

Why Michael Gach chose Kihei

I fell in love with Maui in 1983 and vowed to always return. I actually wrote most of my books on this island, which fills me with inspiration.

I have always been gifted to have an eye for places and people who have potential for beauty and greatness. This is how I created and developed my healing school for over 32 years, and its also how I chose to buy this vacation rental.

When I enter the condo, I always get a overwhelming sense of peacefulness and a natural high from looking at the ocean view. This condo is positioned in a wonderful place, with a view that's straight down the beach. Its protected by the wind and the sun - the location is rather amazing to be steps from the beach.

The Menehune Shores building is curved like a horseshoe. Each condo has a very different location, feel, and faces a different angle. We are far enough away from the road, so you don't hear any traffic. We are on the other side of the pool and restaurant which makes it so much quieter and you do not get the smells of the restaurant.

I have been in units that are facing the ocean, which you would think would be better. However, these units actually face right into the harsh afternoon sun. Also, when I looked at the view, straight out to sea, I felt like I was on a boat. Seeing the coast line in our condo and how the gentle waves wash up to the beach is a picture I love to see.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is unique because of the beautiful oceanfront view, which is 'steps from the beach'. Its in the perfect location, facing south west with a wonderful view of palm trees, beach, ocean, and islands in the distance. Plus, our comfortable condo is protected by the sun and wind in afternoons. For a vacation - its ideal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Michael and Barbara:

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on Maui and how much we enjoyed your lovely condo. I especially enjoyed waking up to the cooing of the doves and falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean. Your condo was very comfortable and the kitchen equipped with "just enough dishes" so as to not get carried away making gourmet meals. (My daughter is an awesome cook.) We ate in quite a few nights and that saved us some money...found some great restaurants as well. The beds were very comfortable too. I know that the trip and the condo were a great birthday gift for my daughter.

I also want to mention what a wonderful asset Hope Marie is and she is a delight to work with.

I will return next year 2011 in the spring... this time the trip will be FOR ME. I will contact you about coming in May. I need to organize some dates with my family.

Mahalo and much aloha.

Gorgeous Maui Oceanview: 2 BR/2 BA Condo - Steps from the Beach!
average rating of 4.921875 based on 68 reviews

Just bring your clothes, this condo has everything!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 2 1/2 weeks on Maui where we stayed in 5 different places. All were lovely but this condo was home. Our 3 year old son keeps asking when we can go back to our condo-house. Truly this condo is perfection. It was spotless when we arrived and we were thrilled with the welcome snacks in the fridge. The view is amazing! There aren't many places that you can open your eyes and see directly to the ocean from your pillow. The layout of this condo worked so well for our family of 5. Our older girls each got a bed in the back bedroom and our 3 year old slept on an air mattress in the closet! He loved having his own "room". Plus the girls had their own bathroom so I didn't have to spend my vacation tripping over their clothes. The lanai is perfectly protected from the evening trade winds so we could sit and watch the sunset while the kids played in the grass.

After all that I have to rave about the extras in this home. The closet was filled with every little thing you might need. In addition to coolers, beach chairs, umbrella etc. there was a first aid kit, aloe vera, a stool so my son could reach the sink, even a big bag of toys. The kitchen has not only a full accompaniment of dishes and cookware but also all the standard spices, some condiments and even a few boxes of mac 'n cheese! These came in handy when our son woke up from a long nap hungry and cranky and we hadn't stocked up at the store yet. Also the host, Hope, is amazing! You couldn't ask for a kinder or friendlier soul. She truly spreads aloha.

Lastly my kids say that this pool was the best of all the pools we sampled. Mostly because it was really warm. They swam every afternoon and loved it.

I don't know if we will ever make it back to Maui, but if we do, this is where we will stay.

Owner's Response: MAUI Oceanfront Condo: Just Steps from the Beach -- Our condo is truly a wonderful place for families and couples to stay in Maui, just 50 to 60 steps from the beach. It has a beautiful ocean view with palms & the islands in the distance. As you can see, everyone gives our ground floor 2b/2b condo an excellent review. ALL of our appliances (washer/dryer, stove, refrigerator & dishwasher are new. ALL of our furnishings are newly upgraded. BOTH bathrooms are clean completely remodeled with granite counters. Plus, we hire Hope Marie, our excellent hostess, to make sure that everything is right. Since it's your special Maui Vacation - check out our photos again to see if you'd you like to stay here. -- With ALOHA!

Beautiful oceanfront apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at Michael & Barbara's condo. It is truly oceanfront and has a private feel since it is on the side of the condo building away from the trafficked pool area. You can walk straight out onto the beach or walk around to the right to a swimming cove with turtles where my 4 year-old was easily able to swim. Michael went out of his way to make sure we had a great trip since we had been concerned about recent volcanic activity on Big Island. Hope, the property manager, left us several treats and called to check in to see if we needed anything else in the unit during our stay. A/C was not missed given the strong cross breeze in the afternoon. We enjoyed driving out to Ahihi Bay for great snorkeling and visiting Makena beach! We got around Maui easily by car from the condo. The owners provide beach chairs, cooler and boogie boards. We also enjoyed eating out at 1054 Togoshi and Three's Bar & Grill in Kihei near the condo. Highly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: A fabulous condo review - that's true. We are so proud of how nice we've made this 100% Oceanfront view condo. We provide a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer for convenience, wifi, 3 flat TVs, plenty of beach chairs, a cooler, umbrella, boogie boards and two gorgeous remolded bathrooms. We perfectly understand that you're not coming to Maui for the granite in our new bathrooms. Instead, you may want to stay in our condo because its steps from the beach.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to provide an Oceanfront Condo that gets excellent reviews like this. We're proud of the great ratings that our guests give us. The ocean view is an A+ and its just steps from the beach. (67 steps!) Since most people only get to Maui rarely, staying in such a nice condo is so worth it. We think other families will enjoy it too. Ee provide beach chairs, an ice chest, umbrella, boogie boards, and a key to the roof top, which will give you a BBQ and 360 degree view of the whole island. As you can tell from reading our reviews, people love staying in this ideal 2B/2B Oceanfront Maui Condo.
