Panoramic ocean views! Across from popular Kamaole Beach II in South Kihei..
Definitely not your typical rental unit. Flawless 2 bedroom 2 bath condo which has been owner occupied for thirty plus years and has been newly remodeled. Hardwood floors and wood louvered window coverings. Crown molding with undermount lighting. High quality kitchen and vanity cabinets. Top grade furniture, including a leather sleep sofa and solid wood cabinetry.
Amenities include boogie boards, beach chairs, a cooler, beach towels and beach toys. Kitchen has cooking gear and dining sets—and even a Ninja blender. Washer and dryer in the unit. Pack n’ Play for your little one. Air conditioning and fans in every room. All of the amenities are brand new—we just bought and furnished the unit.
Lanai has an ocean view and a bar area with fridge and sink. 7th floor community area has incredible views and barbecue facilities. Small, upscale complex with pool and plenty of parking.
This property is located in the heart of South Kihei. Grab your groceries at Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods or ABC Stores, get dinner at Fred's Mexican Restaurant, or pick up a shaved ice. Rent snorkels and surfboards. No need to drive, these are all within a five minute walk.
Best beach in Maui is steps away. It is sandy, kid-friendly, and has showers, bathrooms, and a lifeguard. Watch whales from your balcony or go see the turtles on the sand. The prestigious Wailea-Makena resorts, golf course, and the Shops at Wailea are a couple of miles away.

Loved having two bathrooms, washer and dryer, and the location was perfect! Great beaches and whale watching right across the street, convenient cafe, bakery, ABC Market a block or less away. We look forward to the next trip. Thanks Elliot!
We loved the location! A short walk to the best beach. Short distance to some of our favorite places to eat, moose Mcguilicuttis, Fred’s Mexican food to name a couple. Would stay here again for sure

Loved the place! Perfect location, so clean, so easy. We tried hard to keep things clean and tidy , which was not hard. Just a few comments for improvement - the sheets were old and pilled- a new set of good cotton sheets works be awesome. Also, there was no soap for showering so we bought that- not a problem. Wishing you the best and thank you for hosting us! Five out of five stars, for sure.
The condo was beautiful and the location was perfect!
Great location to easily access beach and restaurants.
The property was fine for a quick stay. The check-in was smooth and appreciate the prompt communication with Elliott on the delayed check-in due to the cleaners. The lanai seemed to be just the right size for two of us with a "peekaboo" view of water. I can see it could be tight for any party larger than 2 people.
The building location is absolutely the best feature... the convenience of walking distance to shops and just across from the Kamaole Beach can't be topped!
The beds were comfortable, but the living room seemed a bit cramp for the two of us - nothing that the owner could have done about it as it seems due to the design of the building.
One thing that was disappointing was the lack of any beach gears at the unit...no beach chairs, no beach umbrellas, or any beach towels.
Unit was very clean and newly refurbished, walking distance to several excellent beaches and local shopping/food etc. Plenty of on-premises parking and indoor space for family of 4 with teens.
Provided beach chairs, mats, towels, cooler were appreciated, though we could have used another chair (3 provided).
Kitchen had adequate pots, pans, cooking utensils and storage containers. Could have used a few more dishes and some larger mixing/serving bowls. It did not have any basic salt/pepper/spices.
Master bedroom mattress not comfortable, extremely firm/rock hard!!
Unit is on the 2nd floor so view is partially obscured by buildings, advertised photo of the view not quite accurate (but still pretty nice).
No AC: an AC unit was present, but the knobs were broken and unusable. We managed with open doors/windows and ceiling fans, was basically tolerable most of the time without AC, though also was more noisy from people at the pool and maintenance work outdoors.
Hot water tank on some sort of timer? seemingly random times with no hot water and limited availability when it did work. This needs to be fixed and/or explained if the hot water is to be limited.
Check in was easy, owner responded quickly . No check out instructions or any other household/neighborhood guide provided.
Overall, the condo was sufficient and it's in a great location. Two bedrooms and two clean and nice bathrooms.
The view of the ocean is very much obstructed but you can catch glimpses of the ocean, and even with said limited view we spotted some whale activity during our stay mid-March 2022.
The listing is very much intentionally misleading in that there is not AC in any room besides the main room, only ceiling fans. The AC unit in the main room is ancient and barely works, with no options for adjusting settings, it's just either on or off.
The owner had said that the room with two twin beds could be made up as one large (king sized) bed, but it was not. So we just pushed the two beds together, which was okay but not ideal.
The kitchen has sparkling brand new appliances, many of the utensils were still in their packaging and appeared to have never been used. There were sufficient dishes and eating utensils, etc.
Overall our stay was pretty good. The situation with the beds was disappointing and the lack of AC in the bedrooms would've been a total deal breaker had I known.
Very easy walk to a fantastic beach and multiple convenient amenities. (Shops and restaurants and snorkel gear rentals, etc.)
Directions to the place were somewhat confusing. Don't use Google maps with the street address but rather enter the name of the building. (Kamaole Beach Royale)
The place itself wasn't bad at all, it was clean and nice and reasonably comfortable. I just felt somewhat lied to about the amenities that I mentioned which was disappointing. I wish AC wasn't a deal breaker for me, but I am very overly sensitive to heat and I really need a reprieve from it in tropical climates. If the wording and communication were slightly improved, I'm sure this would be a great rental for others in the future.
