About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath ground floor condominium home underwent a complete renovation. It has a gorgeous decor and has air conditioning.

Conveniently located on the ground floor, this unit is on the south corner of the building farthest away from the street. It is very easy to park near the home and come into the end without having to go through the entire building each time you come and go. We are only a few short steps to the pool and grassy lawn, and a few more to the sandy beach and ocean beyond. The view is as shown in the photos and is considered a partial view. You can see the ocean from both the master bedroom and the lanai. We enjoy breakfast and lunch on the lanai and usually have dinner on the rooftop deck to watch the sunset.

The master bedroom has a California King-size bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV and walk-in closet. The windows have with louvered shutters and the bedding is Tommy Bahama. The ensuite master bathroom is remodeled and enlarged.

The second bedroom features twin beds that can be bound together to make a comfortable second King-size bed if desired. (We have a top of the line converter kit with a mattress topper and will have it all ready in this is the configuration you wish - we have slept on it and you can not tell it was not a king-size mattress - very comfy). The bedding also includes Tommy Bahama quilts. The second bathroom includes an extra deep bathtub with shower.

The kitchen has been enlarged and features tile flooring, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is an eating bar with pendant lights and counter stools and a wide selection of small appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster, coffee grinder, rice maker, etc.) to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

For entertainment, this suite includes a flat screen television in the living room complete with DVD player. There are also flat screen televisions in each of the bedrooms. In addition, there is an IPOD dock in both the living room and Master Bedroom.

We have wireless internet service and a secured router. There is also a small safe for you to secure your valuables if you wish.

We have been adding some wonderful local artwork to our home. We are using many local Hawaiian artists. You may recognize Mark MacKay's ceramic koi or Scott Green's metal honu or even a couple of Alex Arthur's exciting and colorful local photographs.

We purchased our home in September of 2011 and completed a full remodel mid-December. We love the area and even if you are not staying with us, we encourage you to stay at the Royal Mauian. It is a beautifully maintained resort and has the best location in Kihei. It is the only resort that I know of that has that fabulous roof top garden with BBQ grills and tables and a spectacular view of the ocean, nearby islands and the Haleakala volcano. The guests are also very friendly enjoying a glass of wine together in the evening or watching their children and grandchildren play together.

About Susan Sipe

We are the Sipe Family (Al, Susan, Parker & Spencer) from the Seattle area. We are always thrilled when our family can get together and enjoy a few days on Maui. We feel so fortunate to have a place like Royal Mauian to spend our time. This photo was from December 2016, when the boys and I were able to visit while AL was on a business trip.

Susan Sipe purchased this condo in 2011

Why Susan Sipe chose Kihei

As our two boys have gotten older, we wanted a place where we could all meet, relax and play together. It took us nearly 2 years to find the ideal property - Royal Mauian. This gorgeous beach-side condominium is well-maintained and walking distance to everything. There is so much to do for all generations. We can walk to a variety of restaurants and shops. There are several beaches within walking distance depending on what we want to do - swim, paddle-board, surf,snorkel or just lay in the sun. We were lucky enough to be able to do a complete remodel when we purchased it including all new walls, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. making it feel like a brand new home. Since we are not in a position to be there full-time, it made sense to share it and we are so glad. We have made many friends and have many repeat Guests that now feel like family.

What makes this condo unique

While Seattle is beautiful and green in the summer - it can get pretty gray and dreary from the fall through the spring. We love to come to Maui for a 'sunshine break'. It really improves everyone's mood. The water is great for swimming and other water sports. Royal Mauian is perfect for us - the sandy beaches are right there and the lava outcropping is great for snorkeling and scuba diving - a hobby we all share. Recently we started naming the turtles that live off the shore. We also love to watch the mama whales and their babies during whale season, but we have not started naming them yet...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning. Josh and I wanted to thank you for letting us use your home. It was clean, updated and so comfortable. The location in town made it easy for us to walk to dinner or to get shave ice or for my son to surf.

We moved to the Grand Wailea after your house and although it was BIG, oceanfront rooms,we missed the low key, laid back ease of your place.

Thank you so much. We wish we had stayed the entire 10 days there!

Great location, clean and comfortable condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 5-night vacation in Maui and 4 adults shared this condo. The property is very clean and comfortable. The location of the condo, while having only a modest peek-a-boo view, was none-the-less excellent. The pool and beach were steps from the condo making it very convenient. The bed was very comfortable and the unit was stocked with what we needed. Susan was extremely responsive anytime we emailed her and did her best to be accommodating to our needs. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance of this condo. Thank you, Susan!

Owner's Response: So glad Valerie and her family enjoyed their stay. I agree that the location is fabulous. Steps from the beach and pool and right across from a variety of restaurants and shops. We also enjoy our "partial" view. The Nalu next door has planted some palm trees which has impacted us a bit, but as they grow we should be able to see past them to the ocean again.

Wonderful Stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in #119 at Royal Mauian. It was beautiful and the owner was awesome to work with...especially when we got accidently locked out and she responded right away! Condo has been totally remodeled and is very convenient to everything. We love staying at this location because of all the amenities right across the street and the snorkeling is great right out front. We saw 6 turtles the first day we snorkeled and loved the shave ice right across the street! I highly recommend staying in this unit.

Owner's Response: Jan and her group were wonderful Guests. And they are not the only ones to rave about the shaved ice across the street. :-) I do try to keep my phone with me at all times. And we do have an on-island rep if there is a real emergency. You never know when some silly little thing like getting locked out will happen and if it took hours to get back in it could really impact a vacation. We work hard to be sure each Guest has an awesome time.

Great location and very comfortable

Very convenient to access beach, restaraunts etc. Nice roof deck as well.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that Ravi and his family enjoyed their stay at our home. We agree with him that the roof top deck is a fantastic amenity. The views are gorgeous - you can see lanai, the west Maui mountains, Kaho'olawa and the Molokini crater. There are also views of Mt Haleakela. Commercial grills, an outdoor kitchen and lots of tables and chairs make it the perfect spot for a sunset dinner.

Terrific Spot with easy access to the beach and come and go as you please

  • 5 of 5

We spent a terrific 7 days in unit 119 at the royal Mauian! The two bedroom space was terrific while the full kitchen allowed us to cook in many meals. We took our coffee each morning on the lawn above the beach, spotting Turtles and whales from the lawn chais'. Will definitely be back as time permits. Excellent, nicely appointed beach side property in South Kihei

Owner's Response: We appreciate the kind words from Chris and are thrilled he and his family enjoyed their stay. I agree with him on the location. While our home does not have a knock-out view it is budget-friendly and also has outstanding access to the lawn, pool and beach. We have had several Guests that stayed with us, then "moved-up" to a big view and then come back and stay with us because they missed the convenience of our location. Some have also told us they miss our super-cleanliness and all the little extras they found in our home. We look forward to seeing Chris and family again very soon!

Great choice for holidays in Maui

  • 5 of 5

After looking at hundreds of condos in Maui, I finally chose this one. We were 2 adults, 2 teenagers and stayed for 11 nights. I am perfectionist and attach a great importance to small details. I found that everything was perfect, even beyond my expectations.

The condo is spacious and well decorated, exactly as in the photos. The air conditioner in the living room is powerful enough to keep the whole condo cool with ceiling fans in each room. The kitchen is well equipped. The appliances are recent and in excellent condition. The bathrooms are nice and clean. All beds are comfortable and there’s a lot of storage space in the rooms.

The terrace is well oriented. You do not have a direct sea view, but is protected from the wind and from the sun at noon. It is a great spot for lunch. From the terrace, about 50 feet in each direction, you have direct access to the sea on one side and to the parking lot on the other side. The place is nice and quiet, very few people use this sidewalk and there is also almost nobody in the pool most of the time. The pool is fine and clean as the overall building.

Easy access by walk to the beaches on each side of the building. Beach towels and two good quality beach chairs are provided which were very useful. You can do snorkeling just in front of the building to see turtles and fishes. Basic snorkeling equipment is available, but I recommend you rent your own equipment in a rental shop to have clean and perfect fit masks and fins.

Restaurants, clothes shops, rental shops, small grocery, etc. within a minute by walk on the other side of the street. Two main groceries were at 5 and 7 minutes by car. If we return to Maui, we will definitely try to rent the same condo.

Sun bathing, relaxing, snorkeling is right off the end of our grassy lawn. Also very fun and relaxing is the Ocenafront Yoga at the Nalu right next door. The Royal Mauian has a spectacular location - it is a short walk to many wonderful restaurants and shops. If you like to walk - you can take the beach down to the Shops at Wailea (We like to go in the morning for coffee). Snorkling is very good off of the lava flow in front of the resort. Also I have heard the whales are already beginning to arrive, but have not seen them myself. It is spectacular to watch the mother whales and their calves swimming right in front of the resort. there are also green sea turtles that call this area home.
