You won’t find a better place to stay in Kihei! A gorgeous unit steps from the beach, but still quiet and quite private. A beautiful view from the lanai, living room, dining room and master bedroom. The kitchen is well outfitted, and all of the rooms are decorated very tastefully. A fantastic stay, and the owner is very responsive. Great sunsets and the waves will lull you to sleep. I hope to return someday!

This condo is centrally located in Kihei. Shops and eateries are within walking distance. The condo is beachfront and has amazing views. Kimberly was helpful with booking and sent communication to us prior to our stay. Condo was clean and well stocked with the basics. We loved having access to beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and boogie boards. Great snorkeling to the right of the condo. We were thrilled to have found this place!

My family had a great time staying at Kamaole One! It was the perfect location, very centralized on the island in Kihei. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom were perfect for my teenage daughter and her friend. The bathroom upstairs was a little tight, but my husband and I made due. Also, changing clothes was sometimes a challenge - forgetting to close the top blinds! I think we only used the beach out front a 2-3 times, but we loved sitting on the lanai drinking our coffee and playing games with the view. The condo had what we needed for the week, except the snorkel gear probably needs to be replaced. We couldn't find a complete set for an adult. But, renting for about $10/day down the block was not a problem. The only hiccup we had was connecting to the internet, but Sharon was very responsive and got us all set up in no time. Would consider staying here again when we go back to Maui.

The access to the calm and beautiful beach was unbeatable. In addition, the balcony overlooking the nearby beach was shaded by a beautiful old growth tree. If we weren’t on the beach, we were reading under the shade of the tree on the balcony. Heaven. Took our college age kids and had a blast on Maui.

Love this condo. This is the 3rd year we have rented number 11. It’s a great location. Many eating options within walking distance. Love walking the beach in the morning, then having coffee on the balcony. The unit has beach chairs, an umbrella and boogie boards.

Couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to stay with my wife and 2 daughters. Direct beach access with incredible sunset views every evening. Great restaurants are within walking distance as well as an ABC store to grab anything you need. The property was super clean and quiet. It was stocked with everything we could have needed for a 6 day stay. Can’t recommend this place enough and will be back again in the future.

We have stayed multiple places on Maui and in Kihei and this one takes the cake. The first thing we noticed (besides the breathtaking views) is that it was more stocked than any rental we've ever stayed at anywhere in the world. Maybe it was good timing from the previous renters, but there was plenty of sunscreen, condiments, and even some beer. There were so many beach supplies too (chairs, umbrella, snorkels, fins, toys, etc.). The AC worked better than other Hawaii rentals we've stayed at, and the electronic shades gave privacy with still being able to view the ocean. The kitchen is modern with a dishwasher, trash compactor, and a huge fridge. Sharon was communicative, check-in/out was a breeze, parking was easy, and the beach is so close. Highly recommend!

Location is the best on the beach. But rent from a different owner. Sharon has no concern for her guests, only how things affect her. She lied to us about the AC (it is a swamp cooler downstairs) and thought we couldn't read directions when cable & internet were dead on our arrival. Took over 24 hours to hear from her that she's sending the PM, who read the same directions we did and got exactly the same results—nothing. Another 24 hours and WE have to schedule the technician—but forgets to give us her passcode. So it's another round of texting and our first 3 days are sh!t. Both cable box and modem needed to be replaced. No apologies, in fact no communication at all from Sharon. Last thing we got was her passcode. (Happy to share by the way) Okay, let's try to hit the reset. Time for a good breakfast—oh heck no, frying pan is dirty, full of old scrambled eggs!! Sent Sharon a photo... crickets. Then the construction started next door. I kid you not! Jackhammer tile demo. Sharon's husband Richard is on the board of directors for the condo complex. We find this out from the Property Manager when he came on day 2. If you're on the BOD, you know when someone is getting work done on their condo—especially at a 12 unit complex! Sharon's response? "Oh, she didn't tell anyone, and contractors are so hard to find..." That was the last we heard from Sharon... hm, I hope she's okay. Go to Maui, buy local, over-tip!! Just stay with a different owner!!

We loved our place. Had everything we needed. Washer and dryer was a big plus. The location was so convenient to everything. Could lay in bed in the loft and see the ocean. The sunsets from the view off the patio were spectacular. Would highly recommend this condo. Well worth the cost. Can sleep 6, we had 4 adults staying there. So glad we chose it. Great memories.

We had a really great stay in this condo. The location was 10/10…being able to step out your back door and have the beach at your doorstep was priceless. The condo is well appointed with a full kitchen (including super sharp knives which is a rarity at holiday properties), laundry with powder available, two full bathrooms and living area. It was very conveniently located to restaurants and other beaches. Communication with the owner was great and they allowed us to check in earlier as our flight arrived in the morning. There is a cupboard full of snorkeling equipment, coolers, chairs and beach umbrellas which are available to use. This was very handy! Overall, a perfect stay in Kihei.

This beautiful place was right on the beach. We could not have asked for a better location. Every morning we were either on the beach or walking to get breakfast and coffee. The unit had everything including both a Keurig and regular coffee maker. The owner thought of everything. We’ve been to Maui five times, staying at both resort hotels and condos. We liked this place the best.

This is the second time we stayed in this unit. It is still wonderful…the location is fantastic. Yes, it is not as fancy and updated as other units, (our family was in another unit in same complex). Adjusted check in times would better, 4 was a bit late and 10 a bit early. Communion with Brittany was great. Look forward to returning again. Aloha.

We’ve been coming to Kihei for a few years and have always wanted to stay in these condos at our favourite beach. It didn’t disappoint. Wonderful to sit and have breakfast looking out to the beach and then a sundowner watching the sunset. Condo was clean and had everything we needed including equip for the beach. Would definitely stay again. We even asked to stay for one more night and they made it very easy for us to book.

What a fantastic place to stay! There are so many wonderful things about this place that I will not be able to mention it all. - Every evening you will be treated to a wonderful sunset, each one unique, from the comfort of your porch. - Wonderful location. On the back, you are steps from the beach and view of the islands of Lanai, Kahoolawe, a view of the West mountains and Molokini crater. On the front, you are minutes away from abc stores, gas stations, surf school and a short drive from the nice Wailea area. - The unit itself is very thoughtfully stocked. Plenty of books about the islands, all sort of beach gear and travel gear, and kitchen equipment. We spent a memorable fortnight in Maui filled with delightful sunsets!

Great location on the Charley Young beach in Kihei within walking distance of a number good restaurants. Very clean updated condo in great shape - we stayed for 17 nights never once turned the TV too busy enjoying the beach and having cocktails / meals on the lanai. All the beach accessories are there, chairs, umbrella, ice chest etc. Even used the electric grill a couple of times. Easy parking close to the unit. Kimberly was exceptional at communicating with us during the booking and any follow up questions - highly recommend this place and plan on returning. Mahalo! Bill & Tina

We had a wonderful trip. We have stayed at Kamaole One in a different unit in the past, and just love it here! This unit was tight for us as 4 adults, but it doesn't matter when you spend the day on the beach which is just out the door! We love the access to great local restaurants (Maui Taco and Coconuts being favorites) - and don't miss out on the Deli in the ABC store too! We hope to come back again! Thank you!

The minute you walk into the condo, you see the beautiful ocean in the very near distance. The condo was clean and ready for morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the rolling waves and swaying palm trees. Steps to the ocean was worth every penny. Just a short walk down the beach or the street is an abundance of restaurants, shopping, drinks and shaved ice. The location can’t be beat. If you like lahaina and ka’anapali, a picturesque drive awaits, about 35-40 minutes. We enjoyed staying somewhere different and exploring a new place. One local favorite is the cinnamon place, must try! Thank you brittany for sharing your condo with my family. We will be back

This was our second stay at Kamaole One. Just the absolute perfect location right on the beach in Kihei. Love hearing the ocean all day and night and there was more beach equipment this time (an umbrella and add'l chairs which was great). Brittany, the host, is always responsive, and would definitely recommend this unit.

Wonderful location. The beach is amazing and steps away. The condo is on the second and 3rd floors and is very comfortable. The master bedroom is a loft with views of the beach, but might not have the degree of privacy that most expect (there are curtains to the large windows, but then you miss the view). The kitchen is small but well designed and is functional. The washer and dryer are also a nice touch. There are some beach chairs and toys in the downstairs closet that we unfortunately only found on our last day. Overall, highly recommended and would definitely stay there again.

I brought my daughter and 7 year old granddaughter to Maui and searched endlessly for the right property. We forfeited a pool to be able to stay right on the beach and so glad we did! What a beautiful beach Charley Young beach is - very serene and literally steps away. I had my coffee on the lanai each morning at 5:30 and listened to the waves crashing and all the birds. So tranquil! I chose this condo also because I didn't want to be in a large property with too many people - this was more intimate and private. There was every beach toy we could have wanted: boogie boards, snorkels, flippers, umbrellas, towels, beach chairs - so much! The kitchen was completely equipped with everything we could have needed. As is the case with most vrbo's we left paper towels, laundry soap, condiments, etc, as did others who had rented the space. It was a challenge to keep the sand out but we sure worked hard at it. It's a beach house so we couldn't completely succeed. The location was perfect - accessible to groceries, restaurants, other fabulous beaches. We had a car so drove to other areas of the island but really had all we needed on S.Keihi if we needed to stay put. My only suggestion is perhaps a new coffee pot - I couldn't get a good cup of coffee - even with bottled water. I never had to contact the owner once we arrived - all went so smoothly - from directions from airport to accessing the key and combo lock. If I return to Maui, I hope to stay here again. Fabulous!

The place was perfect for our family of four. Can't beat the location... convenient to all parts of the island & right on the beach. Loved waking up to the view & sounds of the ocean. It had all that we needed for making breakfast every morning (eggs & Spam!). Saw turtles while snorkeling over near the rocks. Walkable distance to downtown & our surfing lessons. Thank you!

This property is right on the beach perfect for coming to and fro with small kids. The view from the upstairs bed is unreal, which is great when you’re stuck inside with napping kids. The only downside is the suite is getting a bit dated and run down, could do with a makeover. No beach equipment is provided either which would be nice.

We stayed for a little over a week. The property was exactly as described and worked perfectly for 4 adults. You can’t beat the view! We didn’t want to leave.

We shared this unit with our son, his wife and their 3 month old. There was plenty of room and privacy for all. The owners supplies absolutely everything for a great stay and was very responsive to emails, etc. The beach is right outside so you can relax on the lanai with a great view or head to the sand with the chairs, umbrellas and outdoor equipment provided. The location is quiet - only a few units in the building and no traffic noise - yet only steps from stores and restaurants. Our friend who lives in Maui was right - you won't find a better listing.

Beautiful place! It was the perfect place for my husband, daughter, son in law and new baby. Being on the beach is such a gift! The second bedroom is a bit small but seriously, it didn’t really matter to us. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone but being able to bring the baby back and forth made this so perfect for our family.

This place was perfect for our family of 5. It was better than expected. Everything we needed was there. The location was perfect and we loved having the beach just a few steps away.
