The Space

Aloha and welcome to this beautiful Oceanfront Maui condo complex on Sugar Beach! Tastefully decorated in an Asian motif. This is not your usual vacation rental fare. No concrete - just wood. The unit features hardwood floors throughout. There are ceiling fans on the lanai, in the living room, and in the bedroom. There is AC for those rare times when it is necessary. The unit is situated so the magnificent ocean breeze blows right through-keeping you cool on even the warmest days.

Located at Kihei Kai Condominiums and less than 10 miles from Kahului airport (OGG), it is centrally located to all of your island activities on Maui. There is a farmer's market just a short walk down the beach and across the street where you can get Maui fresh fruits and vegetables. I recommend the Maui onions and, of course, the pineapples. There (email hidden) and sandwich shop, Dina's, up the beach in the other direction along with a general store selling everything you need to get started.

There is free wireless internet, 32" flat screen cable TV, an iPod/iPhone docking station, and a Blu-ray/DVD player for when you need to get out of the sun.

The grounds at Kihei Kai are well maintained. The pool area and our lanai are newly remodeled and look amazing! There are lounge chairs beach front along with the BBQ area. With these beach front tables and the view from our lanai, I have never eaten indoors.

A couple of reviews mention walking into a hot box because, well, I'm fundamentally against air conditioning. This is why I have a place on the beach that has a cool ocean breeze blowing through most of the time. If you (email hidden) environment then probably Maui is not for you. Open the back windows and front sliding door and you get naturally cool Hawaii air. If this sounds good to you then please be my guest!

  • Todd was a very helpful host! We would definitely recommend staying here. It was very relaxing to sit on lanai and eat and listen to waves! Everyone there was very friendly.

  • Bel appartement au nord de kiehi. La terrasse avec la vue sur la mer est agréable, nous y avons pris tout nos petits déjeuner. Nous sommes partis tous les jour pour visiter l'île, le soir il faisait chaud en rentrant mais en ouvrant les fenêtres nous avons rafraîchit l'air assez vite le soir. Il y a une plage juste devant le bloc d'appartement. La chambre n'est pas très loin du carrefour à la sortie de kiehi il y'a donc du bruit. Nous avons préféré dormir dans le canapé lit du salon pour être plus au calme et être bercé par la mer. Le centre de kiehi est à quelques minutes en voitures avec commerces et restaurants.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Todd's condo in Maui- Todd always kept in touch and our stay went smoothly. The location was great, the beach even better- and the residents of the other units were all friendly and welcoming. Paula, who manages the compound was great too, always willing to help, even though Todd's was privately owned.... and to top it all off, we saw whales from our balcony!!

  • Wir waren 10 Tage in dem Appartement von Todd Rucynski und verlebten hier wunderschöne Tage. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut eingerichtet und sehr sauber.
    Die Lage - etwa 100 m vom Strand - ist sehr angenehm.

  • We travelled to Maui in mid-February to escape the Canadian cold and had a wonderful stay at Todd's condo! Close to the beach and a lot of other amenities, Todd's place was an awesome find at a great value. As a host, Todd was easy to communicate with and ensured that we had what we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Friends of ours are going to Maui later this year and based upon our experience, they have booked Todd's condo as their place to call "home" while on vacation! Thanks, again, Todd!!!

  • Oh Maui sweet Maui, you were so great to us! We loved Todd's apartment - close to the beach, clean, cozy, has everything you need. We enjoyed having roasted chicken bought along the road with some local chips and salsa on our balcony, looking out at the trees and the ocean. The location is great - a less busy part of Kihei, which we appreciated. Still a quick drive into town, walking distance to farmers market, shaved ice place, a bakery and a convenience store. At the same time, it is a quick drive from the airport, not to far from Lahaina in case you want to go explore the island. All in all, we would definitely recommend this place. We were lucky to find this place last minute. Todd was quick to respond and was available for any extra questions we had.

  • It was perfect, the condo is perfectly located in a quiet place. The view is awesome. Todd is a great host and he took care of us. He accomodated us for an extra night and even gave us a late check out. Our experience was exactly the same as the description.
    Aloha

  • We stayed at Todd's place for 7 nights, and the whole stay was wonderful. The condo was very clean and in good condition. It was well stocked with necessities, as well as some nice-to-have items (a rice cooker!).

    The location is perfect for getting to all the beaches that the south shore has to offer. It's a little bit outside of 'downtown' Kehei, but a car is pretty necessary to get around anyway.

    The building had a shared lawn area with grills that was just off the beach. It was interesting to talk to other people who congregated there to grill, eat, or relax.

    The condo is on the highway side of the complex. Between the traffic and the birds, if you're a light sleeper, you may want to get some ear plugs. I did after a few nights, and they worked great for me.

    If we make it back to Maui, this place will be at the top of the list of places to stay.

  • Great place! Really quaint condo community, literally steps away from a beautiful beach and perfect condo set up for a couple. Only reason I didn't get 5 stars was the a/c situation, we had to blast the window a/c in the bedroom to cool down the whole apartment, so it made the bedroom freezing! It also wasn't turned on before we got there so we walked in to a hot box, but it quickly cooled down and worked out fine! You're in Hawaii so you're not hanging out inside anyway! Todd was super easy to work with, quick communication. Would definitely recommend to stay here :)
