Our Maui home is a licensed rental registered with the State of Hawai'i. We'd love to host you in two bedrooms with room air conditioners, two full bathrooms, a spacious kitchen and roomy living room with high ceilings. We can accommodate four guests on high-quality queen beds; there are no fold-out sofas here.

We created our home on Maui to please us, and chances are you will like it too. Our art collection is very important to the feel of our condo near the beach --- local Maui artists, original underwater photography, marvelous pieces of island-themed art, vintage t...

Interaction with guests
We love to discuss Maui, and we have a lot of opinions! And some off-the-grid things that don't hit the guidebooks very often. Once you're here, our on-island manager will help you with anything you need (a home is a home, and sometimes things break) but she won't give you the key: we have a super easy keyless entry. Nothing to carry to the beach.

Year after year this condo provides us with everything we need for a fabulous stay. Each year the owner upgrades at least one thing that is still functioning, so we never experience broken or mal functioning appliances, etc. The custom framed art work is truly...More

When one experiences the comfort and relaxation of this "one of a kind" condo, one begins to search for those superlatives like: super clean, comfortable, great appliances, excellent location, stunning view, and a heaven away from home. It's just about being the best...5 stars here.More

Aloha! It's even more fun to know the names of those fish ... pleased to say we have met a few in person while diving with the photographers. (But are more partial to the kitties under our roof.) Glad you enjoy both! Mahalo (thank you)...More

About the neighbourhood
Central Kihei is convenient to shopping, dining and, of course, beaches! The trio of pretty Kamaole beach parks (Kam 1, 2, 3) are right across S. Kihei Road and extend south a mile or so; walk north one mile to Kalama Park, Charley Young Beach and The Cove (good for surf lessons). A401 is at the top of the front of Kihei Ali'i Kai complex, with on-site parking off a private access road. Within walking distance are a fine natural foods storeHawaiian Moons)
South Maui is closest to many of the island's top attractions, like the Hana Road, Upcountry (the slopes of Haleakala, the enormous volcano) and the main island city, Kahului, where the airport is. You will get the most out of your stay on Maui if you have a rental car; it can cost about $40-$60 to get to Kihei from the airport (...
Getting around
A car is VERY important on Maui unless you absolutely want to just sit on one or two lovely beaches in Central Kihei. And that's grand! But for all the fun to be had on your island vacation, you need a car.
