Kihei Beach Resort 410
Beachfront condo #410 is a 2 bed/2 bath corner unit in building 10, on the southern edge of the property. Corner units in end buildings like this mean, extra windows with a more expansive ocean view & extra light. In this case it also means an extra-large lanai that faces both west & south. Breakfast on the lanai and enjoy an extra bit of local culture when single & double outriggers launch from the adjacent canoe club for practice paddles and a colorful regatta of local races. Pick up fresh local food to prep in the full kitchen, finish on the gas grills, then dine on the lanai. In winter the whales put on a show for free, but all year round the sunrises & sunsets (also free) will stun you. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers. A king bed in the master bedroom, and in the second bedroom 2 twin beds. There is central A/C.
Tile flooring, flat screen TV with complimentary cable, WiFi, local phone. Central AC, ceiling fans, in-unit washer/dryer. The resort itself is a real gem. Nestled into a quiet and safe community, the vibe here is one of low-key local that lets you know you are in an authentic place, not some theme-resort. Centrally located in North Kihei, Kihei Beach Resort is a favorite of return travelers.1 vehicle per unit free parking. From here you can venture forth with low commute times (15-45 minutes) to enjoy most of the awesome adventures and attractions Maui has to offer. Two long & winding roads - one to the summit of Haleakala & the other through the rainforest heading to eastside Hana. These are longer treks to places remote, but places not to be missed if one can help it. On days you want to stay close to base, stroll the (almost empty) 3 mile stretch of white-sand shoreline north to Ma’alaea. The resort’s 1.3-acre grounds tempt you to stay and relax by the pool, sunbathe on the beach or claim a lounge chair under a palm tree and read a book. From the grounds & pool you have panoramic, nothing peek-a-boo-about-them coastline views that extend south to the Makena cinder cone, sweep out across the water past Molokini Crater, neighbor islands Kahoolawe & Lanai, then north to Maalaea Bay with its backdrop of stark white windmills marching up the sharp ridges of the West Maui Mountains. During high season (Dec-April) humpback whales (mamas, babies, and guardian males) find shelter in Maalaea Bay; the sight of them breaching is always thrilling. All year round you will savor spectacular sunrises and sunsets by day, and star-studded skies and silvery moonbeams glittering on the Pacific by night. It’s fun that Kihei Canoe Club is next door to the resort. Watching the canoes during practices or races is a cool diversion few resorts can offer. On Tuesdays & Thursdays the club offers visitors an opportunity to paddle out with them ($40 donation), so worth it! Across the street is a quaint collection of local treasures: a farmer’s market featuring local fruits & veggies, Ululani's Shave Ice Store, Sugar Beach Bake Shop & an ABC convenience store. You will find yourself there more often than you think, it’s one of those spots! And just down the road a bit toward Kihei, you will notice a most charming church painted 'plantation green' with white trim & exuding the Aloha spirit. Keolahou Hawaiian Congregational Church holds services in English & Hawaiian on Sunday mornings, open to all; on Thursday evenings they host 808 Uke Jam, a gathering of ukulele enthusiasts of all different levels who play, sing, learn & share aloha; it is free & open to the public. It is priceless. By the way, this condo is professionally managed by Destination Maui Vacations, an on-island management company with more than 40 years of history on the island. Our offices are located nearby with an easy-to-reach, courteous staff. We love to help & will do our best to ensure you have a wonderful stay on Maui! Free Parking 1 vehicle per unit.
