About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This ground floor, tropical oasis is only steps from the ocean and lies between two beautiful beaches with another protected beach in front. The sunsets and 180 degree ocean views from your lanai are amazing!.

Our well equipped kitchen features sunset and ocean views and even has a cappuccino machine and grinder for your use.

Our updated bathroom features a jacuzzi tub as well as a shower with good water pressure.

We just got a brand new queen sleeper couch in the living room that is very very comfortable and easy to work.

1. Large oceanfront lanai with eating and sitting area with great ocean view. Fronting the lanai and before the beach is a smooth, green lawn with chaise lounges for those who want to sunbathe without the sand.

3. Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom.

4. Comfortable bedroom with king size bed and TV for movies and DVD/CD player.

About The Owner

I have been living in Maui for 15 years and loving every one of them! I am a Maui artist working with jewelry and carved stones showing my work twice a month under the banyan tree and inside the Lahaina Arts Society Courthouse Gallery. I've published five books and have also recorded over 18 music and guided imagery CD's. I live upcountry in Haiku where I have a small macadamia nut and tropical flower farm surrounded by palms, ferns, trailing vines, and lush, green, nature. I also spend lots of time at the beach where I love to swim, snorkel and catch waves. When you're visiting, feel free to ask me for recommendations about my favorite places on the island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Kihei

I chose this condo because of it's fabulous location. It's hard to find a condo that's any closer to the ocean than this one is. Not only that, but it's close to all of Kihei's restaurants and entertainment, but well away from it's noise and activity, so you've got the best of two worlds...privacy, peace and quiet with amenities!

What makes this condo unique

I stay at this condo myself when I want to get away from the rain in Haiku. It's almost always warm and dry. Since I love to be in the ocean I especially enjoy being able to just step off my lanai and into the water. I especially like the sunset views and the rooftop deck. There are only two Maui condos that I know of that have the rooftop deck. From here you can see all over the island and it's great for having gatherings. Every evening as the sun sets someone blows a conch shell for the most lovely sunset 'salute.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to begin! First off, Uma wasn't kidding when she said that the pictures don't even do the view justice. These aren't stock photos of a perfect Hawaiian sunset, taken from SOMEWHERE on the island of Maui; they are in fact EXACT pictures taken RIGHT from that Lanai. You could not possibly get any better- we woke to that sunrise and that sunset every day, and we left the island feeling 10 years younger. Uma's place is super clean, super convenient, and comfortable. The house was very well stocked with cooking supplies/utensils, allowing you to dine in in case you didn't want to eat out every meal. This property wasn't lacking in anything, and we were certainly overly satisfied and would recommend her whole-heartedly to future guests. Uma also took the time to suggest nearby gyms, restaurants, and other things that she thought we would enjoy, as well as extending the invitation to meet her at her art shop up the road. All in all, it made for a very personalized, very intimate, very PERFECT father-son trip; I have to say this is the BEST father son trip we've been on- have done Alaska, two other of the Hawaiian islands, etc- but the setup here was ideal for an older guy who didn't want to go up and down stairs to access the water. 62 size 10 steps from being able to drop your cellphone into the water, I'm not kidding you on that. Still gushing about this place, again, would recommend without a second's hesitation.

Beautiful property!! Amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Menehune Shores!! It's the perfect spot to relax, and sit on the beach, or on the lanae , and watch all the happenings on the ocean!! The pool was also great! And we loved the rooftop views as well! A big Thank You to Uma Silby for allowing us to stay!! Beth

Uma's Condo Checks All Of Our Boxes

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a December 2017 9 day stay in Uma's condo. This is our 3rd stay at Menehune Shores and the 2nd stay in this unit. Our perfect Maui getaway includes: oceanfront, ground floor, nice grounds, great bbq/grilling location, and close proximity to the best beaches in South Maui (Kihei, Wailea, Makena). Uma's unit fulfills all of our greatest needs for a fabulous tropical vacation. She is responsive to emails and questions and easy to book with. Thanks again Uma for a great vacation! We will be back and have shared this special place with friends.

Good location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week. The location, for our needs, was perfect. Diving and golf was close by. Getting into the condo was easy and unit was ready for us when we arrived. Enjoyed the view of the sunset each night.

Perfect spot - so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Uma's condo is just perfect. It had everything I needed and more. The location was absolutely wonderful. Loved sitting on the lanai watching the sunrise. It was easy to get anywhere I needed to go and parking was always available. Would highly recommend renting her unit. (Stayed 7/2/17-7/9/17)

What a nice view, and ocean sounds to wake up to :)

  • 5 of 5

Uma has created a true "home away from home"... well appointed, well setup with "every thing" you should need, just bring some food to prepare.

Get some "water shoes for the beach next door"... rough bottom, a little ways out there...protected waters, so to speak.

Took a night "to get used to the no A/C, (hey, we're from Texas :)... but, yes adjusted, and were comfortable.

Would we book again?....well "I left a quarter buried out there....so we are gonna have to come back"...hopefully stay here again :)

PS, the sunset picture has to be a winter picture....June, it sets behind the portion of island to your right... with beautiful clouds to add to the colors.... just mentioning for clarification.

Stayed on 3 islands...this arrangement was our favorite place :)

GREAT EXPERIENCE....THANKS
