About this listing
Relax on the lanai with a drink, put your feet up, and listen to the trade winds rustling through the palms of Kihei Resort's well-manicured Japanese zen garden.
Take a short walk out of complex & across the street to Sugar Beach for snorkeling, swimming & bodyboarding.
Let the breeze flow though the condo as the dual ceiling fans turn, or make use of A/C units in both the bedroom and living room.
Our 621sq. ft.ground-level one bedroom condo was completely renovated in May 2011.

Interaction with guests
I have a lock-box key system allowing for self check-in, so I may not get to meet with you face to face. I live right down the street, and work only ten minutes away, and I aim to respond to any problems in person within a couple hours. I'm happy to email back and forth to answer any questions about Maui activities.
Kihei Resort is a lush, quiet complex with a 50/50 mixture of residents and tourists. There is one restaurant across the street, Monsoon India, the best Indian food on Maui with mains at around $20.
The best way to get around Maui is with a rental car. Renting a moped/scooter can be a lot of fun for the adventurous types. The Maui Bus has a stop right by the complex. One can reach the airport via the Speedi Shuttle or Maui Airport Shuttle for the cheapest way. Taxis and Uber are available too.
