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 is a fun bar 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 need a constant AC 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!
There is a $95 cleaning fee.
No Smoking inside or on the grounds.
Check in time is 2PM and check out is 11AM but somewhat flexible when requests are made.
My family and I enjoyed our stay in the kihei condo. It was right on the beach and perfect to watch sunsets. We didn't spend much time in the condo or kihei itself, but it was a comfortable stay with plenty of kitchenware and beach necessities. It also proved to be a very central location-easy access to the airport, wailea, and a little closer to Hana than if you were to stay in lahaina. You can park your car if you have a rental in the lot or at the side of the building. We had some difficulty finding the condo number because we arrived late at night, but it's the one right by the pool as the picture shows. Overall a fuss-free and pleasant stay!
I and my family had a wonderful time staying at your apartment. It is clean, quiet, comfortable, and near the sea. Your neighbors are supper nice. We were invited to the potluck dinner to celebrate the Christmas.
Not need to mention how incredible Maui is. I can't wait for my next time visiting.
Thanks you so much!
This is a great deal, a few steps from Sugar Beach, a calm beach for swimming, SUP, walks, not crowded. We hardly wanted to leave the immediate area at all although it is a good location from which to explore other parts of the island. We saw whales from the beach immediately by the condo. It was perfect for 2 people and we appreciated being able to cook for ourselves. There are supermarkets as well as farmers markets and restaurants nearby. And awesome shave ice.
The instructions for getting to the condo were very handy since our GPS didn't take us to the right place initially. The location of this condo was fabulous! It had all the amenities to make you comfortable and the managers of the complex were extremely friendly and accommodating.
My girlfriend and I had a really good time at Todd's condo. It's the perfect size for a couple looking to save money and enjoy an easy walk to beach. Although Todd was not in town when we stayed at his condo, Paula did a great job of making us feel welcomed to Maui. Paula and her husband Ron are two people that are passionate about taking care of their guest. What I like most about this condo is the diversity of people that stay there. Everyone from young to older couples, families with young kids, singles and folks that enjoy alternative lifestyles. One of the events we all enjoyed was sunsets on the beach, you either brought your favorite beverage or beach towel. There is a great bakery, shaved ice shop, farmers market and ABC market walking distance away. We were at the North end of Kihei so Lahaina was close and everything in Kihei was an easy drive. We took advantage of the swimming pool and the AC was a plus, we had 75+ degree weather at night. I would recommend Todd's place for one to maybe two plus a small child at most. Thanks Todd.
This is my 2nd year in a row staying here and it felt just like a home away from home.
The unit is perfectly located and has a great view of the ocean, not to mention just steps away from it to.
Todd was very responsive via email. His place was nice and clean, very close to the beach and centrally located for access to other parts of Maui. The condo can get hot but there is very little rain on this part of the island, so it is a tradeoff.
