|Minimum Stay||5 - 6 nights|
If you're looking for a beautiful, comfortable 'home' to come home to after enjoying all that Maui has to offer, this is the condo for you. Very conveniently located in popular Kihei, on the sunniest, driest side of the island, this 6th floor unit in the popular Menehune Shores condominium complex has everything you need to make your stay special. Completely gutted and renovated, and completed in early 2015, all appliances, furnishings and décor are brand new. Although the cross-breezes are amazing on the sixth floor, the condo been outfitted with air conditioning units 'just in case'. A short 20 minute ride from the Kahalui airport, this home is centrally located and easily accessible from Kahalui, Wailuku, Maalaea and Wailea.
From the moment you enter the unit, you will be drawn to the spectacular view of the ocean from almost all areas of the condo. Once you're done taking in the views, take a moment to peruse the place you'll call home for the next few days: the California king bed and custom closet in the master bedroom with the separately controlled a/c unit, the newly outfitted en suite bathroom with brand new washer/dryer, the queen bed, custom closet and separately controlled a/c unit in the guest room, the fully-equipped kitchen with views of the ocean, the newly outfitted guest bath, the living area with a queen sofa sleeper and dining table and separately controlled a/c unit and the lanai where, if you're anything like me, you will spend most of your time!
From the lanai you have an unobstructed view of the ocean with the island of Kahoolawe in the background, as well as the beautiful mountain of Haleakala in the other direction. The grounds are beautifully maintained by the on-site property manager and his crew. There is a rooftop deck area with dining tables, Weber bbq grills and 360 degree views including the West Maui mountains and the island of Molokini. Sunsets views from here are unparalleled. The pool area is near the ocean with a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. There is a protected enclosed ocean area in front of the pool and small parks on each side of the complex, a great place for kids to play. There is a beautiful coral reef just in front of the complex, great for snorkeling. We also have Weber gas grills and tables next to the pool and ocean, along with shuffleboard courts for passing some down time.
Amenities of note:
* Washer and dryer in unit
* Hi-def TV's in living area and bedrooms, with cable
* Hi-speed wifi internet
* ceiling fans in living area and bedrooms
* separately controlled a/c units in each bedroom
* iron & ironing board
* hair dryer
* beach towels and two beach chairs
So you can choose to go out to see some of Maui's fabulous attractions or stay 'home' and enjoy a day poolside or visit some of the amenities nearby. But no matter what you do, I hope you come to feel that this unit is a comfortable home away from home and that Maui no ka oi (Maui is the best)!
I live in St. Louis with my husband and two children and we try to get to Maui as often as possible. I hate to say it, but I've been coming to Maui for almost 40 years and it really is my second home. With one child entering college and another not far behind, my husband and I look forward to the time when we can become Maui snowbirds and enjoy the wonderful island life for as long as possible.
Teri Ram purchased this condo in 2014
When I was in high school (a long, long time ago), my parents purchased a house in Kihei, so I spent a number of vacations on this beautiful island. My parents retired to that house in the '90s and began investing in real estate shortly thereafter. This is one of the investment properties I inherited and it's come to be my family's favorite.
Aloha! My husband, our two children and I flew to Maui to celebrate my husband's 40th Birthday and bring our children to Hawaii for the very first time. Our trip was nothing but magical from start to finish. Teri's condo was absolutely perfect in every way, with simple yet stunning touches that made us feel at home. We were in awe of the sea turtles found on property at our beach, found the roosters to be funny being that we never get to see them at home and enjoyed the chill atmosphere in Kehei where the condo is located. Being able to cook our own meals from home was key, and a/c was essential for our family's comfort being that we aren't use to the humidity. Teri did a stellar job sending us notes prior to our stay, including everything we needed to know about the condo, as well as things to do in Maui and much more. I will openly admit as much as we miss sunny AZ, it was hard to leave this one of a kind condo and beautiful Maui tonight. We would certainly book our stay with Teri should we choose to visit Maui again. Mahalo!
This well-appointed, well-located, ocean-view rental condo was the perfect landing spot for our fabulous Maui holiday vacation. Being first-time Maui visitors, Teri was the perfect hostess and promptly answered all of our many questions before arrival. The condo was definitely all and more that we had hoped. It was spacious, modernized, and well-stocked. We will definitely return to this beautiful island and cross our fingers that this property is available. Thanks, Teri, for everything! We loved it!!

This condo is on the 6th (top) story of a very nice condominium complex in Kihei. There is great view of both mountains and ocean. The Lanai is a beautiful place to watch the sunset, although when we visited in November a palm tree perfectly blocked the sun so we preferred to watch it either from the beach or the nice rooftop deck. The condo is very nice and well kept. The location is great. It is about 8 miles from the airport and a fairly easy trip to the north shore area (we did a bus/mountain bike tour of Mount Haleakala one day and the Road to Hana another day). The owner is very responsive and accomodating. We would definitely recommend it to others and will book it again if we ever make it back to Hawaii!
We had a wonderful stay in this Kihei condo. Our group consisted of 4 adults and an infant. The condo is nicely updated and the open layout makes it feel more spacious. You can take advantage of the cross breeze or use the AC to keep the place nice and cool. Although another guest complained about the kitchen sink, the sink was a highlight for our 9 month old daughter who loved getting her nightly bath in the large sink. She loved the sink as much as the pool and ocean. The kitchen had all the necessities including many spices and condiments. Another nice feature was that there are tvs in each room with cable. We took advantage of the fact that the living room tv is a Smart TV so we were able to connect to our Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon accounts to watch/rent movies with ease. The ocean view was great from the lanai...sunsets and all. The protected beach right in front of the condo was super convenient to be able to let our daughter sit and play in the sand/water without any big waves. In terms of location, it was a short drive to many restaurants, grocery stores, and other beaches. It was also only 10-15 minutes from the harbor where there are plenty of boat tour options. The owner was very quick to communicate and easy to work with. We would definitely look to stay here again the next time we're in Maui.
There are a lot of condos for rent in this building, Menehune Shores, I would advise at looking at any of the others, not this one. It's not cause I found old clothes, dirt and wrappers under the hide-a-bed, or that the sheets on that bed had not been washed; nor is it cause the blinds in the master bedroom don't work that well.
The problem starts in the kitchen. The layout is poor. The sink is flat bottomed and drains poorly. My son and I noticed immeadiately that the faucet was not properly secured where it enters the counter. I didn't report this because it didn't seem that important and at least it worked.
All of these things probably wouldn't prompt me to write this review. But, several days after getting home I got an email from my travel (property) protection plan stating that a claim had been made by the owner for the kitchen faucet.
I was both shocked and angry about this. The condition of the faucet was the same as we found it when we left. It looked more like poor workmanship rather than damage.
The owner gave me a long story about what the cleaner (perhaps the one who doesn't check the hide-a-bed) found.
Someone is not being quite honest here.
Very disappointing. I guess I can't prove my own case, it's my word against theirs....but if you have the choice, I would rent elsewhere.
We were very happy with our stay! It had everything we needed for our stay. The beach was very nice, clean and we saw several sea turtles next to the shore. The condo was great!
