About the property

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

E Komo Mai! Welcome to Kamaole Beach Royale, our home away from home. Across the street from the beach.

We enjoy a spectacular view of the beach, the ocean, and the neighbour islands from the fifth floor of Kamaole Beach Royale, a six-storey, building situated right across the street from Kamaole Beach #1. Kamaole Beach #1 is one of three famous beaches within walking distance, and was voted Maui’s #1 swimming beach by Maui Revealed, (2012 Edition).

Our condo, which we purchased in March, 2011, is tastefully furnished and decorated, featuring original Hawaiian artwork gathered over the many years our family lived on Maui, Hawaii’s “Valley Isle”.

In the last few months we purchased high-quality linens, bath towels, beach towels, and “Hawaiiana” designer dishes. We installed luxurious, durable 'Smart Strand Silk' carpeting in our living room and bedroom. Our kitchen is fully-stocked with everything you need to enjoy home-cooked dinners on our ocean-view lanai. We keep pantry essentials stocked for our guests, including tea, coffee, spices, olive oil and vinegar.

Our master bedroom has a television, telephone, and queen-sized bed with 800 thread count sheets and custom, designer bed spread. If you need extra sleeping space, we have an electric, queen-sized air bed for your convenience. A five panel shoji screen (stored under bed) provides a private sleeping space.

We are pleased to offer our guests the use of our many beach toys, including two quality snorkel sets (man’s and woman’s mask, fins, and snorkel) beach chairs, umbrella, frisbees, various beach balls, and coolers and “cold bags” - great for picnics on the beach or for hiking up Haleakala. We have binoculars on hand for whale-watching from the lanai during whale season (December - April).

We provide complementary high-speed Wi Fi and toll-free calling to the US mainland and to Canada. Our condo is maintained on an ongoing basis with assistance from our on-island representatives and cleaners, Eric and Cathy, who make sure everything is in place prior to your arrival. They are available to provide any assistance you might need during your stay.

The views from our private lanai are especially spectacular at sunset. At sunrise the tiny island birds will greet you from the palm tree fronds that reach the lanai, and, if you provide even the slightest encouragement, they will be on the lanai with you.

Kamaole Beach Royale is a beautifully landscaped, concrete-frame, and, therefore, incredibly quiet building. Take advantage of the lovely pool and surrounding gardens, and, as a special treat, visit the KBR rooftop garden which is equipped with tables, lounges and commercial grade BBQ’s. Enjoy the 180 view from the rooftop garden and meet other KBR guests over a sunset drink.

Or, just chill out on your private lanai in # 509 and watch the sun slowly set over the ocean and the neighbour islands. If you like, try our conch shell on the lanai: it's a Hawaiian tradition to blow the conch at sunset. If you need a conch lesson, take in the free hulu show and torch-lighting ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Wailea. (Ask the torch lighter for some insider tips;-)

We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much we do.

With much Aloha,

Wendy & Bob

About Wendy Watson

Owners are Bob & Wendy Watson from

Langley, British Columbia. We are pictured on an evening at Five Palms Beach Grill - one of our favourite spots.

We have a long history with Maui, Hawaii’s “Valley Isle”. Wendy's parents lived in Kihei for twenty years; our now-grown children have fond memories of Christmases with Nannie and Poppa, learning to boogie board at the Kamaole beaches when they were little and, when they were older, learning to surf at Charlie Young beach, just up the street.

In 2005, after Mom and Dad moved back to British Columbia, Kamaole Beach Royale became our new family vacation home. In March, 2011, we were thrilled to be able to buy our beautiful condo here at KBR and to share it with our family, our friends and our guests: you!

“E Komo Mai”. Welcome to our home away from home!

Much Aloha,


Wendy Watson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Wendy Watson chose Kihei

Kamaole Beach Royale, located at Kamaole Beach #1 in South Kihei, Maui, is one of only 3 concrete-framed apartments in Kihei. As a result, our apartment has exceptional views and is also exceptionally quiet.

What makes this condo unique

My husband, Bob and I loved this apartment as soon as we walked in. It has a breathtaking view and is furnished in a tasteful yet comfortable style. Since buying the apartment in 2011, we have updated our already lovely 'home away from home' to ensure we have provided everything a guest might need on a vacation to the 'Valley Isle'.

We are pleased to offer our guests high-speed wireless internet connection and free long distance to U.S and Canada.

Our happy place

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed in Wendy's condo. The view is spectacular, the condo is well furnished, and everything is nearby--the beaches, the restaurants, and the shops. As always, it was a pleasure dealing with Wendy.

Beautiful condo! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first stay at this beautiful condo and it will definitely not be our last. The location cannot be beat - it is right across the street from the best swimming beach on Maui. Everything you need is walking distance - shopping, restaurants, swimming and snorkelling. The view is absolutely stunning and we even got treated to a show by a whale right on the lanai. The condo has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We cannot wait to come back!

Each day you awake in this lovely space knowing your day will be perfect ! Watch for the whales in season, plan an adventure or walk across the street to one of Maui’s fabulous beaches. The owners have insured that the condo is immaculate, stocked with all your basic needs, equipped for just about any activity you wish ( snorkel equipment etc) and there is all the information you need to enjoy your time on the island. IF you can discover any shortcoming rest assured it will be taken care of with a phone call. Wendy and Bob are a delightful couple who put their heart and soul into ensuring the best experience possible. Mahalo to them both for making this our ‘happy place’ in Kehei !

Our Stay January 2018

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and brightly decorated, with a wonderful view of the ocean. It is in a central location, with convenient amenities. It felt like "home". Wendy and Bob provided valuable information on shopping, dining, favourite walks and beaches. The condo is equipped with beautiful towels and all kitchen supplies one would require. We are returning for 4 weeks next year.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two week stay at Wendy’s delightful condo. The location was absolutely ideal. Steps from the beach and close to a wide variety of reasonable restaurant options. Wendy provides a fully equipped kitchen and everything you need for the beach. We enjoyed the lanai for all of our meals and for the beautiful sunsets. We highly recommend this condo and have already booked for next year.
