Overview

About the property

Amazing private 4BR House with Pool, just blocks from the Beach!

Unit: Hale Makai | Maui Guidebook

Summary

Hale Makai is bright, open and airy – high ceilings, and tons of windows. Super clean and meticulously maintained with enough space for the whole group to spread out and be comfy, both inside and out.

The home was recently redone top-to-bottom and boasts quality furnishings, game room, multiple bedroom configurations, outdoor shower and a great pool – a family-centered gem.

Details

Aptly named, Hale Makai (ha-lay ma-kai) in Hawaiian it means “Ocean House”; it’s just a short walk from the beach. Warm and inviting inside, and has a whole lot of what makes vacationing in Hawaii so exceptional: outdoor living, relaxing and playing seamlessly integrated into the home.

The large swimming pool is the centerpiece for the outside space, and seating and lounging options around the pool are many. Soak up the rays, or chill out in the shade. Pool loungers line one side of the pool, with a large shaded covered lanai with seating and tables at one end. Another smaller covered area with table is toward the opposite end of the pool – perfect for teens or other members of your group to break off into their own poolside space. Tropical privacy fencing and lush landscaping surround the pool area keeping it very private.

The gas BBQ grill is located next to the outdoor covered lanai, close to the pool, inside dining area and kitchen.

Back inside the house, the master bedroom is on the first floor, and has an ensuite bathroom with a large bamboo, glass block and pebble lava rock shower. The room also has a sliding glass door with private walk to the driveway, the back yard and outdoor shower. The three remaining bedrooms are upstairs. The first has a king bed and each of the other two can be configured prior to check-in either as 2x twin beds or 1x king at guest’s request.

Although most of the time guests will be appreciating the masterful design around outdoor dining, there is also a small dining area and a couple comfortable stools at the kitchen bar-style counter, so guests can hang out together while preparing meals or cocktails. (The setup also really comes in handy for corralling and feeding excited kids!)

The indoor dining area opens right up into the outdoor lanai, where there are two additional outdoor dining tables. The living room also has a sliding door open to the lanai, which brings a fully open flow between the entire common living area and the outdoors.

There is a new game room/hangout area on the first floor away from the bedrooms. With ping-pong, a large TV, futon, table and chairs, this is another great place for guests to chill when they’re not at the pool. The game room is a converted garage with a large two-car size door on one side, which is fun to pop open and let the tropical sun and air in.

The owners just installed an outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach or pool – or for the more adventurous, take your morning shower outdoors in paradise!

Location

Hale Makai is located in central Kihei, tucked away in a very quiet cul-de-sac. Non-touristy and quiet residential neighborhood, but also very close to stores, beaches, restaurants and shops. Mellow and miles long Waipuilani Beach is just two blocks away, and many more of the worlds best beaches are just minutes away. There are also three different shopping centers within 4-5 blocks.)

Other places of interest: Beachfront roller skating rink and skate park is 1.5 miles, Cove Park (best place for surf lessons) is 2 miles, Kamaole Beach Park is 2.2 miles, Keawakapu Beach is 3.5 miles, Wailea is 3.75 miles, Big Beach/Little Beach is 8 miles. The airport is 10 miles.

Privacy & Space

The house is set back down a long driveway, and the strategic use of fencing and landscaping keeps the home self-contained and very private.

The extra-wide and long driveway also allows plenty of space for groups with multiple cars and, of course, playful children!

The owners are concerned with preserving Maui’s environment, and since our island’s electric grid is largely powered by huge diesel generators, the house was recently upgraded to be powered by our tropical sun. Maui thanks you for being green!

There is a separate cottage at the front of the property where the resident manager lives. Debbie is super sweet, responsive and helpful – and she always gives guests full privacy. (Note: the pool and yard are completely privacy fenced from the manager cottage and the neighbors.)

Hale Makai is really one of those places I absolutely love to tell friends and family about – great memories are made here.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Pool was a hit with the grandkids. House was centrally located to see all the sights. There were beach chairs, bogie boards and noodles for the beach. The house was very clean.

Great location, very nice house.

  • 4 of 5

Only complaint was charged $100 more than the advertised price. Location was awesome. Nice beaches within walking distance. Many stores and restaurants within a few miles. House was very nice. Well stocked with basic condiments and cooking needs. Had a nice collection of things for the pool and beach. Rooms were good size and ping pong table in the garage bedroom got a lot of use. House was a little loud. Could hear people moving around upstairs.
