Kihei Garden Estates D-101
Aloha and welcome to the Hale Kai Uli!
What exactly is the Hale Kai Uli? In the Hawaiian language hale means house, kai is the ocean and uli means blue. The inspiration for our vacation rental came from a trip to Baldwin Beach. The day was beautiful, barely a cloud in the sky and the sun was shining at just the right angle; that angle which produces every shade of blue the ocean knows. Add in a scattering of crisp white foam from a passing wave and the warm sand on your toes and you have a color palate that can’t help but soothe and relax the soul. It was there that our dream of the Hale Kai Uli, the House of the Deep Blue Sea, was born. The cool greys, whites and blues of our unit convey a modern beachy feeling.
The Hale Kai Uli is adjacent to a quiet stretch of sandy beach in sunny Kihei, Maui… just 500 feet from lanai to toes-in-the-ocean!
Our 2 bedroom/1 bath condo can sleep 4 guests and was fully renovated with all new furnishings in October 2016.
Bedroom 1 offers a plush queen-sized gel-infused memory foam mattress and luxuriously soft sheets. Windows facing both east & west provide great cross-ventilation and a large wall-mounted oscillating fan will keep you cool as you sleep. A black-out curtain on the west-facing window will help keep the afternoon heat at bay or block the courtyard lighting for light sleepers. There is extra counterspace and a large mirror for dressing with easy-to-access outlets.
Bedroom 2 offers 2 twin-sized memory foam beds, a large dresser and an oscillating floor fan. A 32” SMART TV is set up with a BlueRay DVD player. Cable is not available on this TV but it is connected to the wi-fi so you can use your Netflix or Hulu accounts.
In the bathroom you’ll find plenty of storage for your toiletries and hooks for wet towels or toiletry bags (there’s also additional hooks behind the bedroom doors). A large niche in the shower provides space for soaps and shampoos. A towel rack installed in the shower is the perfect place to drip dry wet swim suits. A hairdryer is provided.
Our kitchen comes fully equipped with stainless appliances and all the cookware, tools and gadgets and serving dishes you would need to make a quick breakfast or a full dinner. You can also take advantage of two gas grills and full outdoor kitchen at the pavilion area near the pool.
You’ll find a dining table inside for those rare rainy nights but Hawaii living is all about being outdoors so we’ve provided a patio set large enough to accommodate 4 adults for a full dinner. A retractable shade will keep the lanai cool in the afternoon. And once the sun fades beyond the horizon, flip on the twinkle lights, pour a glass of wine, sink into the comfortable chairs and relax well into the night.
The driftwood-look tile flooring throughout helps keep the unit cool and the east & west facing windows allow you to take advantage of the breezes when the trade winds are blowing. There are fans in the living room, dining room and both bedrooms but when the humidity requires A/C, our brand new high-powered unit will cool off the condo quickly.
Kihei Garden Estates is a lush property. Enjoy swaying palms, fragrant plumeria and exotic tropical flowers throughout. From your lanai, you can watch geckos and iguanas and listen to the song of the Hawaiian Mynah Birds. A combination of permanent residents and vacation rentals creates a quiet, relaxing atmosphere you won’t find at larger resort complexes. You’ll always find an open chaise at the pool and a spot in the hot tub. There is a shared laundry room for each building ($2.50 to wash/dry) and we have provided a laundry bag for guest use.
We’ve supplied 4 Tommy Bahama “backpack” beach chairs with cooler pouches, a soft-sided Coleman cooler, 1 medium and 1 large boogie board, a small kickboard, 2 pool noodles, a beach ball and an assortment of pails, shovels and molds so your family can build an epic sand castle.
And finally, for all the techies that stay with us…you’ll appreciate our unlimited high-speed wifi and the numerous (8) USB charging ports throughout the condo.
