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)!

About Teri Ram
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
Why Teri Ram chose Kihei
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.

Had a great time! You will too!
We arrived around mid-night and had no issues getting access to the condo. It's a very nice 2 bedroom accommodation that we shared with our favorite travel buddies. The pictures on VRBO don't quite do it justice. This is a very nice part of Maui with less wind and cloud (at least during our stay). The walled in beach area is actually a 500 year old fish pond that had turtles in and around it every day. Lots of fish to see if you're into snorkeling and the water inside the wall was always quite calm. A short drive to groceries and shopping. Everyone was really nice, including the full timers. We gave our extra groceries away at the end of our trip, so if you have some left, pay it forward. Shout out to Teri Ram, the owner Thank you! We had a great time!
Thank you so much for all of your nice comments and helpful commentary. Love the pay it forward comment! It was a pleasure having you stay in my home and I'm glad you had such a good time. Please come back again!
Amazing Property Not to be Missed!
Teri's condo was amazing! It was everything you thought you were getting in the pictures!
The view is INCREDIBLE all the way around from the lanai. We even saw some whales from it at the beginning of April.
The building is easy to get to from a few different ways.
Having lived there before I can say this entire property is extremely well cared for and maintained. No roaches were seen, minus the ones we carried along with us in the rental car, lol. And fearing the typical ant problems that everyone has there, I preached to my kids about no crumbs getting left anywhere and all food needs to be sealed tight. Well, there were no ants to be seen anywhere anyway.
The condo was very clean upon arrival.
The cross breeze is great and we only used ac at night time.
There were more than enough beach towels, bath towels and bedding.
The kitchen has pretty much anything you may need to cook with. We felt a couple things that others could use.
Washer and dryer work perfectly and a blessing to have in the unit.
The unit and building itself is very quiet and friendly. From what we heard there usually aren't many families with kids that stay there and the ones that were there were very well behaved it didn't feel like anyone had to leave the pool area because kids were there.
Having the best of all three swimming options was nice. You have the regular beach, you have the sea-walled enclosed area and then the pool. The regular beach is not very sandy, it is more thicker coarser sand and hard to walk out into the water in for kids. But the enclosed area is buttery smooth, fine sand.
We felt very safe there that we let our girls, 9 & 12, go down alone in the morning to walk and splash on the beach while we sat and drank our coffee on the lanai watching them.
There are plenty of places to eat & shop farther down on S.Kihei Rd.
Sandy park beaches are a few minutes drive down the road also and some within walking in the other direction.
The only "bad" thing I could say is that the beds could get replaced soon. They weren't that uncomfortable that it made for bad sleep, and I have back problems that easily get triggered with poor mattresses, so they definitely aren't a deal breaker. And the couch bed would be a no go for any adult as you feel every spring. We tested it just to see, glad we didn't need it.
Can't go wrong with this unit!!
Can't wait to visit again and will definitely book around this unit being open! Thanks Teri!
Thank you so much for your kind, comprehensive review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the condo and all that comes with it!
I'll be traveling to Maui soon and will definitely check out the mattresses. They were brand new in 2014 but maybe they are just tired.
I look forward to having you back to either one of my Maui properties!
Nice and completely refreshed as advertised.
We had a great time at this property. There was great shallow ocean with calm waters for the kids and only 10 minutes to great diving for me. Very convenient location with groceries, restaurants, and all the ammenities close by. The unit was in excellent shape with an amazing lanai is with a perfect view of the ocean. The property was also very well kept and you could even have a great view of Haleakala from the roof deck or a great spot for sunset photos.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and it sounds like you took advantage of all of the great water activities Maui has to offer.
I hope you're able to get back to Maui at some point in the future. If so, you're always welcome at Menehune Shores!
We enjoyed our stay here.
You're a man of few words Bart, but I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to have you stay again if you make it back to Maui.
Clean, close and comfortable
This unit was modern and nicely furnished. We felt very comfortable staying here. A few downsides are that the elevator is quite slow (being on the 6th floor) and that there are large air handling units on the roof that create a mechanical white noise, which could affect a light sleeper.
Other than that, we were pleased and felt at ease using the kitchen, TV and dining room. The view from the lanai was serene.
White Sandy Beach
Mahalo, Teri, for sharing your vacation home with us. We found the unit to be clean and comfortable with all the kitchen tools we needed. We so enjoyed listening to the waves from the lanai and loved how quiet the area was. Perfect for our goal of relaxing!
