About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Ocean and Mountain Views, 1000 sq. ft.--Steps to the beach

This top story unit at the Shores of Maui offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean and is located on the sunniest part of the Island. It’s about 50 yards from the sand, directly across from Cove Park, a fun surfing and paddle boarding beach. It’s a one block walk to Charlie Young Beach (as a reference, it's the north end of Kama'ole Beach I), one of the finest swimming beaches on Maui!

The complex is minutes away from the resorts and shops of Wailea as well as championship golf and world class restaurants. It’s also walking distance from charming local Kihei cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries.

The condo is on the second floor of the two story complex, accessible by stairs but not elevator. The unit was recently remodeled including the kitchen with new stainless appliances, hardwood bamboo floors in the living room/dining area and bathrooms, Samsung "Smart" 32” flat screens in each bedroom, all with DVD/BluRay players attached and free Netflix; and in July, 2016 a brand new 60" Smart Samsung flat screen in the living room.

In July, 2016 I stayed at the condo and added these new items:

In the kitchen--new KEURIG 2.0 PLUS SERIES single serve coffee maker (includes 4 K-cups per party)--guests can purchase additional K-cups of their preferred brand at the local CostCo or grocery outlet. There is also a standard electric coffee maker in the kitchen.

New electric FLIP BELGIAN WAFFLE MAKER--makes excellent waffles!

New -- THE ORIGINAL GREEN PAN--healthy, ceramic, non-stick skillets.


The bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated--one has a king bed, the other has two queens. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

There are TWO FULL BATHS in the unit.

The unit includes a spacious lanai (balcony) with spectacular OCEAN VIEWS, wonderful for sunsets and whale-watching. There is a table and chairs to sit and relax on the lanai.

The unit has 2 NEW AIR CONDITIONING UNITS, a fully equipped kitchen with a brand new full size Kenmore refrigerator and includes a dishwasher, microwave, toaster and rice cooker. In June, 2017 I also added a THIRD COOLING/VENTING A/C unit to bedroom #2, th room with the 2 queen size beds. All areas of the unit can now be well-cooled.

FREE High Speed WIFI Internet is included (private for guests in unit only)

400+ digital channels of FULL HIGH DEFINITION TELEVISION in living room.

Cable television in both bedrooms.

Free NETFLIX. (code distributed prior to check-in)

Includes TELEPHONE with unlimited local calls as well as free calling to all of the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong and India.

Brand new full size LG WASHER AND DRYER in the unit.

On-site amenities include a heated spa, swimming pool, tennis court, outdoor gas grills and covered outdoor eating area.

Note that there is a mandated state of Hawaii room tax of 13.41% added to the daily rate. Contact owner if you have a question or would like to discuss the minimum number of nights stay.

Also note that VRBO charges a small percentage "service fee" at the time of booking. VRBO does not refund this "service fee" if the reservation is cancelled.

About Sam Powers

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended the University of California at Berkeley. I loved San Francisco but moved to Los Angeles to attend graduate school at UCLA. I then began my career directing and producing educational television series for broadcast on PBS as well as projects for the South Korean Ministry of Education and the government of Singapore. I currently work in public education in Los Angeles and also develop multi-media interactive learning games and apps. Some of the work I do can be seen on our company website at www.inglesya.us/educators. I have been blessed with a wonderful 9-year old son who also loves the ocean and the beaches of Maui.

Sam Powers purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sam Powers chose Maui

Since I was a child, my parents took me on vacations to Maui as well as the other Hawaiian islands. I loved the ocean and the beaches and the diving, surfing, whales, dolphins, sea turtles, sunsets and amazing hikes. None of that has changed. As an adult, I particularly enjoy Kihei and the Shores of Maui because I can sit on my lanai and enjoy a beautiful sunset every night, a glass of wine in hand--walk to excellent coffee and breakfasts in the morning--walk 60 yards to the ocean and take a swim--sit by the private pool on property or on the beach--then head over to one of the excellent local happy hours. Or we grill steaks and seafood on the gas bbq's on site and sip our home-made mai-tais and relax in the jacuzzi. Or if its a family and kids trip, we all swim and boogie board every day at the beach, walk to the park, or take a hike.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing ocean view from the lanai where you can relax and hear the waves.

Walk everywhere!

Plenty of room for couples in the two bedroom, two bathroom condo--or for family or extended family.

Pool, heated spa, tennis court and outdoor gas grills and tables

It was 100% as advertised, (perhaps even better)

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy. The condo we rented was perfect in every way. Pool was very nice, used the grills almost every night. Beaches were close. TV and DVR worked fine with very easy to understand instructions left by the property owner. I truly can't say anything bad about the experience.

Relax in Kihei!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very comfortable with a great location and relaxing views. The overall color and family style condo was a welcoming find. The condo was just as advertised only better with a fully stocked kitchen, games and toys for the beach. The view of the pool and the beach from the lani was beautiful. The location of the condo was within walking distance of many shops and eateries. My family looks forward to returning again. Thank you Sam for allowing us the pleasure of your Hawaiian home.

Lovely place by the beach

  • 4 of 5

This condo is located in a perfect location. It is so close to all sorts of different types of beaches and snorkeling areas. It's walking distance (or very short drive) to lots of different restaurants and shops. There was enough beach gear for us to use and it made it so easy to have long beach days. We loved being able to just walk our family across the street and play on the beach. The condo complex had a view of some of the most gorgeous sunset views. We enjoyed grilling at the BBQ and watching the sun set from the pool/jacuzzi. The condo itself is so quaint, cute and quiet. I misunderstood and thought that the AC unit was also in the second bedroom. My in-laws ended up having to sleep in the living room because it was extremely warm and uncomfortable in that room even with the windows open. An AC in that room would make it ideal. The other AC units worked really well and cooled the condo quickly after a long hot day. We did battle some unwanted guests (ants) but it is a common thing on the island, and if you just keep everything cleaned up, it isn't too bad. Other than that the condo is a really great place and I would stay here again. We had a wonderful trip. Also, Sam was very responsive to any questions I had and was very friendly. Mahalo!

Cozy condo in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo was great for our family of four, and could easily have accommodated more. The location was perfect, right across the street from a wonderful beach and next to businesses that rent paddleboards and surfboards. Easy walk to restaurants and coffee shops (even for my 4 and 6 year olds), and a short drive to other yummy restaurants and beautiful beaches. Having a keyless entry was nice too, never having to worry about forgetting/losing keys. The kids loved the pool, which gets deep fast (starts at 3 feet, ends at 8). Sam (the owner) was great, very accommodating. We would definitely rent this condo again.

Perfect for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

On our second trip to Maui we returned to The Shores for its unbeatable location. This condo was ideal for our family's needs: spacious, clean, comfortable and up-to-date, with everything we needed for our holiday. It can be challenging to find accommodation for a larger family which offers everyone enough "personal space" - we definitely appreciated 2 bedrooms plus the sofa bed in the living room. Our young adult son was with us for part of the vacation so he used the sofa-bed, while our 2 teens had plenty of space in the 2nd bedroom and my husband and I had the master. We walked across the street to the beach every day - Charley Young was great for boogie boarding (- 4 boards supplied with the rental.) At The Shores we enjoyed barbecuing and eating on the lanai. We particularly appreciated how cross-breezes between the lanais helped cool the condo's interior. Sam, the owner, was great to communicate with - he answered questions in detail and devoted effort to making sure everything was taken care of so we could enjoy a stress-free holiday. While The Shores is not a new complex, I would highly recommend renting this renovated unit. We have explored the island...we still think sunny Kihei is THE best place to stay in Maui, and we hope to return to Sam's condo on our next visit!
