About this listing
If your particular dates aren't available or if you are traveling with a group, please contact me, anyways, because it may be possible to book one of five other units I manage in the same complex. They are all within 100 footsteps. :)
WELCOME TO MY PARADISE....
This air conditioned, upper floor, 500 SF Studio is spacious, comfortable, peaceful, uncluttered, and full of light. The vaulted ceiling adds an open and airy feeling.
There is a new, extra thick, Queen size Memory Foam Mattress that was purchased in late 2014 for $1899. The mattress is super plush and extra comfortable, it is on a Murphy Bed. There is also a Queen size sofa sleeper.
This unit is extra special because it is one of the only units in the complex that has a double lanai (deck patio) spanning two full lengths of the condo. There are also additional windows, plus all the floors are tiled.
From the extremely spacious lanai, you will have a beautiful view of the on-site tennis court, the colorful courtyard with plenty of vegetation and tropical flowers, a very clean swimming pool complete with an outdoor shower area, an extra large jacuzzi, outdoor restrooms, plenty of gas grills, and even picnic tables. In addition, there is a peek a boo view of the ocean (directly across the street) and an incredible view of Haleakala. There are 3 separate sitting areas on the lanai for you to enjoy.
Other amenities inside the condo include an extra large 26 x 20 inch safe, keyless entry, beach towels, beach chairs, bath towels, snorkel gear for two adults, tennis rackets and balls for two adults, a large cooler, a beach umbrella, an iron and ironing board, and even a First Aid Kit. For your convenience, there is also an affordable coin operated laundromat with 10 new washers and 10 new dryers on site. The cost is just $1.00 per load to wash and $1.25 to dry.
Your condo is within walking distance (less than 1 mile) from grocery stores, churches, restaurants, shopping, a gym, nightclubs, the post office, Fed Ex, medical facilities, hair and nail salons, and even banks/ATMs. For added convenience, the bus stop is just steps away from your front door.
Your daily price includes free parking, free WIFI, air conditioning, ALL mandatory Hawaii state taxes (13.42%), and a 32" Samsung Smart Flat Screen HDTV which also allows internet viewing.
There is also a Blu-ray HD DVD player, 2 ceiling fans, a stocked kitchen with appliances (including an ice maker in the freezer), a Brita water filtration system, plenty of cookware, plus lots of extras like a blender, coffee maker, toaster, a microwave, and even a hair dryer. Please note, there is not a dishwasher inside the condo. I do, however, supply paper towels, dish soap, large garbage bags, toilet paper, hand soap, cleaning supplies, individually wrapped kitchen sponges, and bin liners for small wastebaskets. There is also a "Pay It Forward" shelf where guests are welcome to leave their unused, non-perishable grocery items.
The complex is located in North Kihei. My condo is directly across the street (about 250 footsteps) from the OCEAN, Kalepolepo Beach, Kalepolepo Park with tables and outdoor showers, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, and the ancient Menehune fish pond.
Kalepolepo Beach Park also offers easy access to great beach walks, kiteboarding, swimming, romantic sunset views, and incredible whale watching.

We had a lovely stay at Marco's apartment. It was very clean, easy to find and comfortable. He had a great book of information for guests about the local beaches, restaurants and things to do!
Très bien situé cet endroit est idéal pour profiter de la côté Sud de Mauï. Tout est fait pour s y sentir à l aise et chaque fin de journée se finissait par un tennis un grand merci à Marco
Excellent place and a lovely stay. Description was spot on, and the location was ideal for exploring Maui. Also, that was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on at an AirBnB!
Thanks again, and we'll definitely book here again the next time we come to Maui!
Easy arrival, great location, simple yet very comfortable. The communication from Marco was EXTREMELY quick - his response rate was record setting!
As for the home, it was a great value and had all of the amenities necessary (plus a few extra) to make for a fabulous vacation. Such a great space, comfortable and very conveniently located. I would absolutely stay here again.
We had a great time staying at Marco' studio. Marco was very responsive, which made the booking process really smooth and easy. We enjoyed having breakfast and dinner on the very large Lanai. The complex is quiet and well maintained (just don't park under one of the trees that have some super sticky little flowers ;-) ). The location in Kihei was great as it made for fairly easy day trips to most parts of the island (but if that's not your thing, there is actually a lot to enjoy right there).
The recently bought mattress was indeed very comfortable, we slept very well! The sets of battery powered candles and nice lighting is a nice touch and made for a romantic atmosphere.
We would highly recommend the studio to any couple wanting to spend some sweet vacations in Maui (maybe less suitable for a family as this really is a studio).
We had a superb time at Marco's place. The place is exactly as described, very close to the beach, and easily fitted the three of us. There are even recommendations for things to do around (we tried some of them out and did not regret). Speaking of which, don't miss breakfast at Kihei Cafe! It was delicious!
The free wifi and free parking are also big pluses, as we rented a car to drive around the island.
If you are ever in Maui and are looking for a place to stay, choose this apartment and you won't be disappointed.
It was a nice small place but was disappointed that I really couldn't unpack since there is no place to but anything unless you want to hang shirts. However it served its purpose with a decent place to sleep. I left an extra beach towel along with pretzels in the pay it forward cabinet & ice cream popsicles in the freezer. The best part of the condo for me was the a/c!! I never used the pool or laundry facility, so I can't comment on that. Overall it was small & cozy & served its purpose.
