Say Aloha to this beautiful oceanfront property and Hawaiian style studio apartment perched on a bluff overlooking Charley Young Beach. Perfectly accommodates 2 guests.

The space
True Hawaiian style is based on informality and lacks pretense. That's exactly what you’ll find here, a humble home situated on a spectacular oceanfront parcel of land in an old neighborhood. The studio apartment is in the back of the main house on the 2nd floor. The building is a weathered wood-frame structure and the interior is beautifully appointed with an heirloom-style dining table and 2 chairs, Queen bed with an ensemble of crisp Hotel Collection linens, and a couch that pulls out into a full bed.
There are ocean views throughout the apartment and a screen door that opens up onto a small balcony with a garden view and just beyond that, a sandy beach. Private entrance, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with bath and beach towels. Amenities include air-conditioning, WI-FI, flat-screen T.V., 2 beach chairs, umbrella, and 10-quart cooler.

Guest access
The beach is a 30 second walk from the apartment. The front of the house has a spacious, lawn with palm trees overlooking the ocean. Feel free to use the front yard, hammock and lounge chairs anytime.
The backyard is off limits, it is the work facility & storage area for our housekeeping and landscape maintenance.

Other things to note
BEFORE YOU BOOK WITH US: Please read our listing description in its entirety so you can be sure that what we offer matches up with what will make you comfortable during your stay on Maui.

Please take notice of our cancellation policies. We STRONGLY recommend that you get travel insurance to protect your financial investment in case you need to cancel your stay with us. Your careful planning and consideration in this matter are very much appreciated.

And lastly, remember that Hawaii is located in the subtropics where plants, birds, and insects are all a part of this thriving natural environment. We go through great lengths to clean and keep the studio bug free. Still, you may see an occasional critter. If you stay with us, you can help by emptying your trash every day and not leaving any food out.

E Komo Mai! Welcome! We hope that our guests will appreciate the studio's vintage charm and the incredible uniqueness of this beachfront property.

Location

Kihei, Hawaii, United States

Charley Young Beach is a hotspot for locals. Located in an old neighborhood on Kai’au Place in Kihei, the Hawaiian word Kai’au translates in English, “swimming sea” or “a nice place to swim”. It's revered for its gentle surf, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, stand up paddle and miles of sandy beach for walking. If beach activity is what you are after, the location just doesn’t get any better than this. Most everything is a short car ride or walking distance to the beach house- grocery stores, farmers markets, coffee shops, cafes, restaurants and fine dining, shopping, entertainment, and all the accouterments you can think of to be comfortable during your stay.

We are happy to get to know you and hope to accommodate you as best we can. My husband Derrick was born and raised on Maui in this very house. He is a professional Chef and has also been in the hospitality business for many years, he loves people and really understands this business from the heart. I have lived on Maui for 34 years and have a background in sustainable land use and Hawaiian environment. I'm currently at home teaching Pilates on the lanai. We both love to hike, cook & entertain, farm & garden, and watch movies in each others arms.
