Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Our Hale Kai O Kihei (‘ha-lay-ki o ‘kee-hay) condo offers breathtaking ocean views. On the private lanai, you can enjoy the tranquil sounds of the ocean and view the amazing year around sunsets. There are also miles of sandy, un-crowded beach directly in front of the condo, excellent for morning and evening walks.

The beachfront location, and amazing ocean views is comparable to what you would find at the nicest resort. But, at our condo, you will have privacy, your own private lanai, and is fully equipped for your comfort and enjoyment. Our condo has a private 1 bedroom with a queen sized bed and an updated bathroom with new tile shower and vanity with granite. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for all your cooking needs. The living room which opens to the outside lanai comes with a sleeper sofa, ceiling fan, & AC unit.

Hale Kai O Kihei’s many amenities include a pool, shuffleboard area, and gas grill barbeques. Laundry facilities are also conveniently located on the property.

The location of the condo is on a quiet residential street just one block from the Times Market (formerly Star Market) and the Azeka Shopping Center in Kihei. You are within walking distance of retail stores in Azeka Shopping Center, grocery store, shopping, and great restaurants (Nalu's, Pizza Madness, Coconuts, Fabianno’s, Fork & Salad, & Amigo’s – just to name a few). Also within walking distance, you will find 2 fitness centers to choose from, a yoga studio, and the Kihei Aquatic Center (lap swimming & water aerobics) for all your fitness needs. There are also beauty salons & nail salons within shopping complex as well as post office, dive shop, scooter rentals, ATM machines, and banks. You will find a farmer’s market open every Saturday as well as open air craft market & gift items available daily. Kihei Rent-A-Car is nearby and they offer shuttle service to and from the airport.

Depending on swell direction, you can enjoy surfing & stand up paddling in front of the condo complex, and with steady trade winds, wind surfing and kite boarding!

For any medical needs you may have, there are a few outpatient medical clinics, Kaiser clinic, Premier Physical Therapy, dental clinic, as well as pharmacies all within walking distance.

Public transit is one block from the complex. The condo is only a short 10 minute drive to Wailea & a 20 minute drive to Kahului International Airport.

About Ron & Susan Erickson

We are the owners & property manager for our condo, and we live in Kihei approximately 10 minutes away from the condo, so rest assured you can reach us if you have any questions or concerns, knowing you will be dealing directly with owners who live locally and not a large property management company. We have lived on Maui for 28 years, have a great love of the ocean and appreciation for Maui lifestyle, and we want you to have the Maui island paradise experience as well! Maui No Ka Oi! (Maui is the best!) Mahalo for considering our condo for your vacation destination!

Ron & Susan Erickson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ron & Susan Erickson chose Kihei

The reason why my wife and I chose to buy at Hale Kai O Kihei was due to our love of the ocean. This is truly what Hawaii is about, a beautiful coconut grove with a sandy beach on the waters edge, away from the hustle and bustle. Of course, facing West for the most amazing sunsets, we are truly blessed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found this condo to be absolutely perfect! The location is just great, so close to anything and everything a person could possibly need--full service grocery store, large drug store, many restaurants--from fast food to high-end. All this within walking distance, yet the condo is just far enough away to be quiet and secluded. The property is beautifully maintained, and the pictures and description are exactly what you will find. The kitchen is better stocked than mine at home! We loved watching the sunsets from the lanai in the evening and having coffee in the morning while watching the surfers and paddleboarders. Kihei is a great location in Maui; it rarely rains, and is only 10 minutes to Maalaea, with more shopping, restaurants, harbor, and the Maui Ocean Center. Lahaina and Kaanapali are just over 20 miles away and offer numerous tourist attractions. We couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy beautiful Maui,and highly recommend this condo--you won't be disappointed!

Good, not great.

  • 2 of 5

This place has stellar reviews, so I was shocked when there was a lot to be desired on our honeymoon.

Pros:

- you can’t beat the view on the lanai

- good location (depending on what you want to do)

Cons:

- the condo is quite small, even for two people.

- the AC unit is only in the living room. So if you want to cool down the bedroom, you have to leave it on til the living room gets freezing. There were no blankets, so I used a sheet to keep warm in the living room.

- the bed is not very comfortable.

- (probably the biggest con of all) the first half of our stay, we kept finding dead bugs on the ground. We would clean them up and alert the owner. She came by and said “it means the treatment is working.” Good enough for us. Near the end of our trip, we found more bugs alive and all over the ceiling. We took photos and videos and sent them to the owner, and they called to explain that there haven’t been trade winds so that’s why we have bugs. No offer to come and get rid of them. No offer to give us money back on the place. My husband had to kill them and clean them up.

We kept the lanai door closed for the most part (which was a bummer) so we weren’t sure how they were coming in. We then discovered that there’s a tiny window covered by drapes that never closes. So there was no way to prevent the bugs from coming in. Not the way we wanted to spend our honeymoon.

All in all, we probably won’t return. I’ve stayed in Maui many times before and have never had to deal with bugs INSIDE. There are plenty of other condos that have gorgeous views and are bug free.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry your expectations were not met and you had these experiences during your honeymoon stay. The size of our 1 bed/1 bath condo is 600 sq ft and a common size. We are sorry you found it small, no one has complained about that before. We purchased a new mattress in Nov 2017. We appreciate the feedback on it not being comfortable. We will purchase an additional pillow top padding to add. Also, there are usually extra blankets in the bedroom closet. They must have been removed for laundering and not replaced prior to your check-in, I apologize for that. As for the bug issue - unfortunately, we were experiencing no tradewinds during the week of your stay - which occurs about 5% of the time, very unusual. With no trades brings very small gnats. This problem was occurring up and down the entire coastline, a very unfortunate weather pattern during your stay. So, we hope you understand that the bug issue was not an isolated issue only with our condo, and we do apologize as we always wish for sunny trade wind weather for our guests, as it is key for activities and comfort. If we have unusual weather patterns in the future, we will better communicate to our guests what to expect in advance, before they feel it is a problem. This is a lesson learned for us to communicate better. Mahalo for your feedback. Sincerely, Ron and Susan

Amazing place to stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 week stay in Kihei and we LOVED this condo. Before our trip I think I read almost every single one of these reviews and I can now say that all the good things that everyone has said about this place are completely true. Ron and Susan were so nice and helpful. The condo was very clean, well decorated and stocked with everything you could possibly need. Particularly - having our own beach chairs/umbrella/cooler was really convenient. The location was great; close to the airport, grocery stores, restaurants, banks etc.

When we were planning our trip we didn't want to stay in a crowded resort which we have done many times, we were looking for somewhere to stay which was relaxing and quiet . This was the perfect choice! The best part of the condo was the lanai and it's amazing view which many people have already mentioned. No picture does it justice, you just have to see it to understand what everyone is talking about it. We didn't have the best weather during our stay but we were still always able to BBQ and enjoy the sunsets. We rented a car and loved exploring other beaches and areas in Maui, but it was also nice to have our own private beach that only ever had a handful of people on it. We also always saw turtles in the ocean. Would highly recommend this condo and we hope we can return soon!!
