Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Doug purchased this House in 1977
Why Doug chose Kihei
As you can see from the photos, this is a very unique Maui Beachfront property -- a beach house that many of our guests have returned to year after year.

Beautiful oceanfront property!
Absolutely thrilled with our choice of vacation rental for our first trip to Maui! The ocean views were incredible, we spent so much time enjoying them from the lanai (especially the amazing sunsets)! The location feels like you're completely isolated, but you're just a short walk to the nearest market. Loved staying in Kihei; for us, it was a great central location for all we wanted to see and do. The owners recommended Coconut's and Fork & Salad for food, which were close, and both were delicious! We got take out from both more than once. Also, loved Paia Fishmarket for fresh fish. One thing that I was concerned with when booking was no air-conditioning, however, after the first day or so we acclimated to the warmer weather, and the afternoon/evening winds really helped to cool things down (and there's also a fan in the upstairs room). And, the trade-off of a fabulous location and incredible views made the lack of air-conditioning a non-issue for us. Highly recommend this property!
Had a great time for a week here. Very well appointed, they have everything you need (some rental properties don't supply things like paper towels or sponges or laundry detergent, but they have all those little things that you won't want to buy). Only suggestion: curtains for the living room to help it stay cool in the afternoon/evening, as well as the east window in the upstairs bedroom--the sunrise hits the pillows early!) Doug was very responsive and helpful and a pleasure to do business with.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely house in the perfect setting. The view and proximity to the beach are ideal. The arrangement of the rooms, the light, then breeze, the furniture inside and outside and of course those magnificent sunsets made it perfect. Our goal was to find sunshine and R & R... Mission Accomplished! We were able to easily rent paddleboards and use them right off the beach out front. We also sunbathed, walked this lovely stretch of sand and, were also lucky enough to see sea turtles come ashore one evening. It was magical. We have never experienced this part of Maui before and it is very convenient to everything the island has to offer, yet, when you are in the house or on the deck you feel like it is your own island. Thanks for opening your home, it is one in a million. We hope to come back soon. Thank you!!!!!
Quiet, rustic beachfront beauty in Kihei, Maui
Doug was excellent to communicate throughout the process, very responsive and accommodating !
The property is a duplex half, basically right on the beach. We loved the fact that we weren't in a condo complex, surrounded by lots of others, the property is quiet and very relaxing. A previous reviewer mentioned homeless people nearby, we didn't have any issues in this regard. While there is a grassy vacant public space adjacent to the property, we felt safe at all times. Day beach visitors do walk through the vacant area to access the beach.
The property has a lovely, rustic feel and you can tell that it is a favorite vacation spot for the owner's family.
The master bedroom is light and bright and it is possible to lay in bed and listen to the waves on the shore if you leave the sliding door open. It does get light early, so bring an eye shade if you like to sleep late.
There are three full bathrooms, one on each level so that worked great for our family of five. The master bedroom is on the top level, with the kitchen, living and dining area below it, while the second bedroom is underneath, meaning that the bedrooms are well separated which is great for noise and privacy.
We found lots of turtles sleeping on the beach each night not far from the property which was a bonus ! There is also excellent stargazing on the beach at night.
Good coffee can be found at Akamai which is about 2 blocks walk and there is a decent supermarket about a block away. There are an assortment of restaurants within a 5 minute walk but we mostly cooked our own meals and ate in or on the beautiful front deck. There is a great charcoal grill right out the front on the beautiful grassy area that we used a lot for meals.
What a lovely vacation we had a Doug's place.
Hawaiian Beach Oasis
Loved our stay at this Maui Beachfront townhome! We have been to Maui several times and this by far was our BEST place we have ever stayed! We loved waking up to the sound of the Ocean waves and taking morning and sunset walks along the beach. We would definitely recommend this place!
fell in love with the place. No complaints at all. Everything met or exceeded our expectations.
Kayaking with the turtles!
