We are all saddened by the devastating wild fires in Lahaina. It was an historic town with many good restaurants, galleries, and shops. The harbor was busy with sightseeing boats and whale watching boats in the winter. Cruise ships always stopped there for a day. It was also a vibrant town of 12,000 residents who worked in the restaurants, galleries, shops, and boats. It was the economic hub of West Maui. While all of the structures are gone and too many lives have been lost, the survivors go on. They need the support of the locals and the visitors. There has been a tremendous outpouring of help. Visitors are reporting the gratitude expressed by locals for coming and spending money as well as donations of goods.

Kihei is centrally located in South Maui and is home to many condos and residential areas. The Road to Hana, Haleakala, the resorts in Wailea, the lava fields on the way to Ahihi Preserve are an easy drive from Kihei. Our building is directly on the water with beaches adjacent to our lawn. Experience paradise as you sit on your lanai with nothing but sweeping views of the azure waters of Ma'alaea Bay and the Pacific Ocean with the gentle sway of graceful palm trees in the foreground. Watch the sunset every night on our lanai or meet fellow guests and owners on the roof with a beverage and cook on the grills.

Our large, light and bright, beautifully appointed condo is situated on the 4th floor in Menehune Shores, Kihei. It features 3 large bedrooms (2 oceanfront bedrooms with queen beds and 1 bedroom with twin beds facing the imposing Haleakala volcano and the Maui sunrise) and 2 full baths. All linens and towels (bath and beach) are provided. An updated fully equipped kitchen, hairdryers, great room, 2 flat-screen TV's and separated laundry room with full sized washer and dryer -- all the comforts of home are yours as you experience the wonders of this magnificent island. We are directly on the water and generally have sea breezes that cool the condo - we do not have A/C and reduce our rates in the summer.

Amenities include a heated pool with gas grills and picnic tables nearby, waterfront access, shuffleboard court, and free parking (one car during high season). FYI - the POOL IS CLOSED THE WEEK AFTER LABOR DAY for annual maintenance and the nightly rental rate is reduced accordingly. There is a rooftop garden complete with gas grills and picnic tables which serves as a place to gather with others to enjoy magnificent sunsets and whale watching in the winter. If you are hosting a large gathering, a full kitchen is available to rent for your event. Menehune Shores is a very well maintained building with lush lawns and beautiful tropical plantings.

We engage Tracy Keenan as our on-island agent for our rental guests. She provides cleaning, maintenance, guest information book, and pre-rental inspection of the unit to ensure everything is in working order.

From the moment you step off the plane, the loving "Aloha Spirit" envelopes you for the time you spend with us.

We had an amazing time at this Kihei condo. Was the perfect size for our family of 5. Really appreciated all of the extras…lots of towels, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers. Plenty of ocean breeze coming through the lanai door that we didn’t mind no a/c. Great location. Close to airport and Wailea. Only about a 40 minute drive to Kaanaapli beaches. Very close to stores and restaurants. Many within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from our stay in Maui and this property was absolutely perfect for our family. The water views were picture perfect. We saw whales and sea turtles almost everyday. The beach was steps away and relatively shallow so any water activities were easy to do. I highly recommend staying for sunset each night if you can because it is like no other view you will see. You feel like you’re at the edge of the world. We will definitely be back!

The ocean view was awesome! Being able to sit on the balacony with full ocean view was the best. The condo complex felt safe and the beach was not busy at all, felt private. We appreciated the condo having a cooler, beach chairs and floaters.

December 2023
Location was great - next to a small sandy beach and large ancient fish pond. Lovely protected and safe area for salt water swimming, toddlers splashing, and for observing the giant sea turtles. Easy access to beach (lovely morning walks), and nearby public park with tennis and pickleball courts. The structure was built in 1976. Unit was as described, with many elements updated. Kitchen was well equipped, though a tight space. A few things needed attention - the property manager was responsive and friendly. The layout of the 3 bedrooms was good, though the actual living space felt a bit cramped for 4 adults and 2 teens. The listing was clear that there’s no AC. Would have been a welcome option for a couple of the nights as the unit directly faces the afternoon sun. The building’s small pool was cold (waiting for replacement parts). No hot tub. But the building’s rooftop, with grills and picnic tables, provided an amazing open space for watching sunsets or star gazing. Communication with the owner was best we’ve had with VRBO.

Excellent experience for our family of 4 adults from beginning to end, starting with thoughtful and responsive communication, and finally, going above and beyond in response to a question/request. The condo was as expected from the listing. The views are incredible and the condo was clean and thoughtfully stocked for our weeklong stay. At first we were worried about no air conditioning but that was not a problem at all while we visited- opening the windows/front door (there's a lock on the screen door) created a pleasant breeze. There are also ceiling fans and an electric fan (we didn't need to use) in each room. Thank you for a wonderful stay Gail!

This condo has a awesome location and the layout is great. The view every morning and night is incredible. This is the place to come if u want to see turtles sleeping and swimming. We have stayed in the complex before and chose the 3 bedroom unit because my mom came this time. I think the beds could be updated but otherwise a wonderful place to stay.

Couldn't have loved this place more. Spent every evening on the balcony watching the sunset across the water. Great location close to several beaches, restaurants, and any other point of interest. Nice amenities in the house to get you started on your beach vacation!

This condo was absolutely perfect for my family of 5. It is in a great spot close to so many things. The condo was beautiful and the owners were always quick to respond back with any questions we came up with. Love the turtles in the swimming area just sleeping on the rocks. Thank you for letting us stay.

We stayed Aug. 2-16, 2023. It was a beautiful place and we absolutely loved it. The fires put a little damper on things but we still enjoyed our stay. Anyone wanting to know if the no Air conditioning will be a problem it will not be. The air flow through the whole condo was enough and we are air conditioning kind of people. The temp outside was 90ish degrees every day and we had no problems. It was warm during the day but not unbearable because of the wind blowing in. Things I wish I knew: They have a bunch of beach towels. (would not have brought ours) Didn't need a hairdryer. They have one but didn't need it. there were 4 of us girls with long hair. Beach hair didn't care. Gail and Bob do treat you like family. They checked in on us to make sure we were ok during and after the Lahaina/kula fires. This was our first vrbo and we picked a winner

My first reaction when going into the unit was WOW! Everything was wonderful. There was everything we needed and the island agent was very helpful with our rental items for our toddler. Very convenient location. Looking out over the ocean and seeing splendid sunsets every night was awesome as well as listening to the waves at night. Having a pool for the kids was a plus. We all would highly recommend this vacation rental.

The property was close to everything, beach access was easy for the kids. We would come back in the future.

Loved just about everything about our stay here. The spice cabinet was full of items, loads of towels and dish rags, etc. There were just a couple of times I wished there was an air conditioner... I'm glad I was there in mid-spring because the temps were pleasant. Both bedrooms in the front had fabulous views and the lanai was jusy lovely.

Easy check-in. Clean. We'll stocked with essentials. Our family of 6 enjoyed the stay. The 2 bedrooms facing the ocean were the best. The breeze and crashing sounds of the ocean waves. The bedroom facing the front hallway wasn't as pleasant though. The lanai was where we hangout and had most of our family meals.

Well equipped, specious, nice location within the complex. Two of the bedrooms face the ocean, along with living room and lanai.

We had an absolutely amazing time staying at Menehune Shores! This was our family vacation for the year and included my wife, daughter and two grandparents. We had plenty of room for everyone and everything was well organized. Additional information was provided beforehand as well as in a large 3 ring binder in the condo for info about the property, places to eat and things to do and see. They even provided beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers. The hosts were easy to get a hold of and answered any questions we had right away. A big thank you to the Hopper family for providing a wonderful vacation for my entire family that we will not forget. Thank you, The Smith Family

The condo is beautiful right on the beach. Nice pool and roof top bbq that was awesome! So many things to do and see in the area. We really enjoyed our trip. The only reason I gave this condo a four star is because there is no AC and this was not noted in the discription of the condo prior to us reserving and paying for the condo. It's was really hot at night and it's November I could not imagine how hot it is during the summer months. This may not be important to some people just thought I would mention it because it was important to me.

We had a wonderful stay at Menehune Shores. The condo was perfect for my family of 4 and my in-laws. The views of the patio are ones you will never forget. We spent our mornings watching the turtles play in the ancient fishing pond and the afternoons watching the sunset. I even swam out to watch the turtles one morning. The unit is mostly updated. We loved the newly remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. There are a couple of things we would change but overall our experience was great. I would suggest you definitely close the blinds before you leave. It can be hard to cool the place down if you don't. If you are looking for a 3 bedroom in Kihei look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely fabulous. This rental was amazing. The property had everything we needed, the location was central to everywhere we wanted to go, the view was breathtaking whatever hour day or night, the sand beach and ocean within steps of the back door, the sound of the ocean musical, and the tranquility and peace so very relaxing. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

This apartment was in such a great location. Just down the elevator to the pool, a few steps to the beach, and up the elevator to the roof for stunning sunsets. The accomodations are very basic and nothing fancy about things at all.

This is a beautiful location. It is very easy to get to everything. The condo was perfect for our adult family of 5. Every morning and evening we enjoyed sitting on the patio looking out at the water. The beach is great for an early morning walk. We would suggest pulling the window coverings when you leave for the day. It cuts down on the heat.

We had an amazing time, the view from the lanai was stunning, especially to sit and watch the sunset. The property was close to many activities or you could step out and hang out on the beach or go for a stunning walk along the coastline. It had everything we needed and we all had a great time.

Overall a great experience at this property. Not the fanciest place, but the value and location were excellent. Had an issue with the facility outside of the property owners' control and they took care of it promptly and Is without any hassle. Would definitely come back.

From start to finish the process of renting this condo was absolutely as advertised. The Hopper family answered questions, gave advice and advised us who were nervous being first timers that they were there to ensure we had a great time. Boy did they NOT disappoint. From the views on the rooftop on evening cookouts to simply walking downstairs and being on an isolated beach with breathtaking views and sea turtles this spot is like nothing we have experienced ever. It’s location in Kihei is absolutely perfect. Safeway less than a mile away for all your grocery needs. Narus restaurant and Coconuts were are absolute favorites within a 10 minute drive. If you have a family like we do three adults, a 14 year old boy and an 11 year old boy this is the spot. We had plenty of room and dinners outside or sliding door on the Lanai were stunning! Makena State Park(Big Beach and Little Beach) were only a short drive away. This unit also had chairs and umbrellas along with a cooler as well. To the Hppper family thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our 8 day trip to Maui and unforgettable one. Maui it’s been fun but know we are jumping on a plane and heading to Honolulu. Aloha!!!!!

The location was great!! However, it never occurred to us there would be no A/C. There was plenty of ocean breeze so the temperature was still comfortable. Although having the windows opened all the time let in the red dust. A location garter from the beach probably wouldn’t have that. That is something the hosts have no control over but must be dealt with. And I’ll take the beach front location any day. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay. We would definitely recommend it.

After visiting Oahu last year, we decided to take a trip to Maui this year and this place did not disappoint! We loved this spacious 3 bedroom 2 bath and the gorgeous view from the balcony. The lagoon and pool was wonderful to have! My 6 year old was in heaven! Thank you Robert and Gail for sharing your wonderful place with us. We look forward to staying here again and creating more wonderful memories!

Only one word can describe this property for a family vacation, Excellent! We rented 2 condos at this location from June 9 - June 20th 2022 and both owners and properties were as advertised and perfect for a family vacation. My family and I want to thank the Hopper Family for being gracious hosts and being very accommodating. Thank You Bob Hurley

What a gorgeous location! Right in the heart of Kihei, just a mile away from lots of great bars/restaurants. The condo was fantastic. Plenty of room for our family and right on the water. We were able to see turtles and sea lions right from the balcony. Can't wait to go back.

The TV turned on sometimes but couldn't get anything to watch. The freezer broke so the door only opened 3 inches. Internet was spotty regardless of whether on Apple or PCs wifi would just stop. While there was a breeze to cool things down, never was able to get more than 3 hours straight to sleep each night at a time due to the heat and humidity. Couldn't hear the ocean because we needed to keep the fans on. Probably would have had the same problem if we had AC> Looking forward to a good night's sleep now that I'm back home. We received several very polite reasons, and rationalizations, things didn't work but nothing was fixed. Admittedly none of these things were deal-breakers. Just won't be doing this again.

Upon arrival, I was blown away! It was absolutely perfect! The condo was clean and well-maintained. The location was SPOT-ON! It was quiet and peaceful. Everyone was friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The overall facility was very well-kept with a beautiful lawn and convenient beach access. The restaurant downstairs was so useful after a long day exploring the beach. And I can’t say enough positive things about the owners… They were responsive, helpful, and so kind.

Gail's condo was clean, comfortable, conveniently located, well equipped and nicely decorated, not mentioning the main advantage - the view from the balcony! It was really breathtaking - we couldn't have asked for a better location or view! With full view of the ocean and every sunset being different and beautiful, our overall experience was fantastic. The kitchen was well stocked; we also found a nice set of local fruits and teas upon arrival, on the table (thank you!) Washer and dryer were super-helpful as well. Overall, had a great experience with this property.

The apartment is fantastic! You can't beat the location. Perfect west-facing view for amazing sunsets. Direct view of the traditional Hawaiian "fish pond" for watching turtles all day long. Conveniently located for Kihei, Wailea, and West Maui. The apartment itself is spacious, with a nice new kitchen and bathroom, comfortable living room furniture, and a nice TV. We've stayed in this complex before, and this condo was even nicer than the previous one we stayed in. The only thing I'll mention is that they don't provide a starter supply of shampoo or tissues. They're up front about it, and there's a safeway down the block where you can easily pick up anything you need, but it's worth knowing about in advance.

The condo is exactly as described. It is clean, up-to-date, well appointed and equipped. It really lacks for nothing. The view from the balcony is beautiful. The location is only a short drive from many shopping areas, restaurants, beaches and sight-seeing stops. It is also a short drive to Lahaina and the airport. Communication with the hosts, Robert and Gail, is nothing short of outstanding! They are wonderful people who truly have your interests in mind. You will have no regrets staying in their "home" in Maui.

If you are looking for THE place with fantastic views and easy access to both ocean and a protected swimming and beach, this is THE place! Robert and Gail's unit very clean and comfortable, with every thing needed for a beach vacation. We enjoyed walks on the beach, swimming, turtle watching and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. When we return to Maui we will be returning to THE place.

Our stay on Maui was amazing. The property has a gorgeous view of the ocean, is beautifully updated, the kitchen is well equipped, and the location in Kihei is perfect. Close enough that everything is convenient but far enough away from the masses that it is quiet. We have rented condos and houses frequently for vacation and this one is one of the best we've ever rented. If we ever have the chance to return to Maui I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

The condo is just as described in the listing. The views from the lanai are beautiful. We really enjoyed being based in Kihei. Great location and easy access to anywhere else you want to go on the island. Much more relaxed, laid back vibe than in Kaanapali or Wailea. The only negative for us was that it was warm in the condo in July. However, I am not taking off any stars as we knew going in that the condo did not have air conditioning. Overall, it was fine and there are strong breezes, especially in the afternoon. But we sometimes wished we had a/c as it could get warm, which bothered me most when it was time to go to bed. The fans in the bedroom were loud so no hearing the sounds of the ocean inside the bedrooms when they are running (which was pretty much all the time when we were in the condo). I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this condo again, but maybe not in July. The condo is a great value, well-maintained, and in a nice location. If we were in the condo, we were usually out on the lanai enjoying the breeze and the ocean views.

It was nice to have 2 bathrooms for our family of 6 and the sleeping accommodations were comfortable. It did get warm some of the nights without air conditioning, but overall it was a good stay.

Aloha! We truly enjoyed our stay! This condo had the best location in the whole complex. It is the closest to the water and the 4th floor provides the best view. The balcony is the best part of the condo. We had 6 family members and plenty of room. We cooked and BBQed easily with a well stocked kitchen. Bathrooms are nicely updated. If we come back to Maui, we would stay in the Kihei area and this condo! Mahalo!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Upon arrival, we were greeted with fresh fruit and snacks in the condo. The layout is nice and open and the views can’t be beat. The kitchen was remodeled with great appliances and the second bathroom looked to be newly remodeled as well. The place was spotless. Very clean and inviting. Plenty of storage space for your stuff. They also had coolers, umbrellas and chairs available for your use. The only drawback to this condo is there is no AC. They do have plenty of fans for you to use and the were helpful. A couple of nights were really hot but most were fine with a cool breeze coming off the water. The complex is well kept and they have a small beach you can use. It has a sea wall so it’s great if you have little ones. The owners were super responsive and communicated well. That’s a real positive. The only other drawback was the parking lot. Very small spaces and folks weren’t great about staying in the lines. All in all, a great option for your stay in Maui.

We really enjoyed the location and the condo. The kitchen was very well equipped and the property is very well maintained. I was shocked that some of the beat snorkeling and turtle watching was in the protected lagoon at the property.
