Aloha and thank you for considering our ocean view Penthouse suite.

Our luxurious suite has been recently remodeled and upgraded to provide you with exceptional value and comfort. Every room has a sculpted high ceiling with recessed lighting and ceiling fans in every room (7 total). There are two air conditioners, all new top of the line appliances, granite counter top in the kitchen, tile floor throughout, Hawaiain rug in living rooming, new couches Sept 2015, two large flat screen HDTV'S. We take pride in offering you a fresh, exceptionally clean condo with upgraded linens and furnishings. The master bedroom has a posterpedic memory foam pillow top mattress....700 count sheets - not common for vacation rentals!

Our Penthouse features stunning panoramic ocean views and breath taking sunset views. The suite is located on the top floor (5th) of the building (building B (unit B507) -which is NOT right on busy S. Keihei Road). It is cozy and comfortable and a great place to spend your vacation. This is one of the only penthouse units at Haleakala Shores to have insulated and finished ceilings to help keep the unit cool. The suite has lots of windows and is airy and light. Kamaole Beaches II/III (2 of the best beaches on Maui) are all located across the street from this great location. There are many other beaches within walking distance (Kamaole Beach I, Charlie Young and Cove Beach). You can walk back and forth from your convenient Penthouse suite to the beach all day long without having to use a vehicle.

Our suite has an open floor plan with 16' vaulted ceilings, 1200 square feet, with plentiful windows, abundant sunlight along with refreshing breezes. The living room is the center of the suite and a great area to enjoy playing games, reading or watching your large wall-mounted HDTV. Make yourself at home and relax in the upgraded furniture while enjoying the surrounding artwork including a beautiful Hawaiian rug, turtles on the wall, and other tropical scenes which provides a touch of the local ambiance. This central hub of the suite provides a great place for bonding and making memories of a lifetime.

This two bedroom, two bath suite sleeps four guests and the beds are very comfortable. The bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the living room, with a separate bathroom in each bedroom suite, providing great separation for privacy. The master bedroom comes complete with upgraded linens, and a very comfortable California King-size posterpedic memory foam pillow top mattress....700 count sheets - not common for vacation rentals!. There is an amazing ocean view from this room. The master bath has a large shower, built-in seat and a pebble floor. The bathrooms have soft, clean upgraded towels. The second bedroom has an ocean view of its own. This room is elegantly furnished, lockable (actual solid doors-not a screen) and includes a comfortable Queen-size pillow top bed.

The "5th" person is for a small child that would use the pack n play be in the parents bed. The couches are not for sleeping.

There are beautiful new granite counter tops in the kitchen making this a fabulous place for cooking your vacation meals. The kitchen is well equipped with new top of the line cooking appliances. There is a variety of small appliances, cooking utensils, dishes, bowls, pots/pans, baking dishes, etc. available for your use. The dining area is conveniently located next to the kitchen and is furnished with a beautiful dark wood dining table and seating for four. There is a new washer and dryer located in the laundry closet next to the kitchen.

Enjoy our private pool area which is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, it is quiet and relaxing. You may spend some time by the pool swimming, relaxing and/or reading a book. After a long day on the beach you can grill your favorite meal on one of four gas barbecues. Assigned carport parking is conveniently located steps away from the elevator and the suite which provides for ease of unloading your belongings.

This is a non-smoking complex and no smoking is allowed in the Penthouse suite or on the lanai. No pets are allowed in the suite or the complex.

We have an on-island manager who lives minutes away from our complex. Our manager is available for any questions or concerns regarding your stay once you have arrived. The manager provides oversight of our housekeeping and maintenance staff so that any concerns that arise can be resolved immediately. Haleakala Shores has an on site manager as well.

See our reviews since October 2014 when we purchased the unit and here are three reviews from previous guests provided by the last owner:

'The condo was spacious, spotless and well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The furniture was very comfortable including the beds. Kamaole Beach III is wonderful and very close snorkeling. You feel like you are experiencing living in Maui rather than being a tourist; I really like Kihei. Neighbors were nice and welcoming; we were included in the monthly bar b que. Nice pool. Kono on the Green is a fabulous restaurant where we had a magic evening. We had a great time. Thank you.'

'This is our 3rd stay at this wonderful condo. It has every convenience one could possibly want or need. The view of the ocean from the lanai is spectacular! The covered parking is great, you never need to get into a steaming hot car! The beds are super comfy! The kitchen is so well equipped, its a pleasure to fix dinner and relax and watch TV on the big screen. I guess you can tell, I LOVE THIS CONDO!'

'In essence, our vacation began when I located your listing on vrbo months before our arrival to Maui. After booking our dates with you, I frequently went back to the website and looked at the pictures of your condo, imagining sitting on the lanai and enjoying the beautiful view. After all that dreaming ahead of time, one might think seeing 'the real thing' would be a let down - Not so!!! Your condo is by far the best location at Haleakala Shores. The view is spectacular. The extra window over the bed in the Master Bedroom gave an additional view of the ocean. Your beautiful artwork, well equipped kitchen and comfortable furniture made our stay enjoyable. As a former Maui resident, it was a pleasure having our friends visit since it truly felt like our home. Mahalo.'

There are many things to do in Maui: Golfing, tennis, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, down hill biking, paddle boarding, wine tasting, horseback riding, taking the road to Hana, hiking in Iao Valley State Park, and the viewing of beautiful waterfalls. Visiting other areas like Maalaea Harbor, Lahania, islands of Molokai, Molokini and Lanai, upcountry towns, the shops and beaches of Wailea, the Pacific Whale Foundation, aquarium, Makena State Park, and Mt. Haleakala.

Things we love to do when vacationing in Maui include: Going to the beach and building sand castles or paddle boarding in the serenity of the wide blue ocean, going to the pool, relaxing and having a nice cold drink, snorkeling in the reef and seeing the beautiful tropical fish and turtles, eating shaved ice, walking down the beach walkway, skating at the outdoor rink at sunset, shoreline walks, watching breath taking sunsets daily, and slowing down enough to enjoy life, and bond with our family.

Policies: A deposit of 25% of suite rate is required to hold your reservation. Your remaining balance is due 45 days before your arrival date. Early and late check in/outs are available for an extra fee upon request. There is a $160 cleaning fee for all stays. Our condo maximum occupancy is 4, but we will consider 5 if they are a small child. Cancellation Policy: Please see our rental contract for cancellation policies. (this is different than the VRBO cancellation policy) .

About Steven and Patricia Schultz

We are the excited new owners of this fabulous vacation penthouse suite. My name is Patricia. My husband, Steve and I live in Sacramento California. We have been married for 29 years and often enjoy vacationing in the Hawaiian islands with our family. We are the blessed parents of five amazing children ages 36, 33, 30, 28 and 10. We also have a wonderful 8 year old grandson and 2 year old granddaughter. Steve works for a large construction company. I stay at home with our daughter and help with our grandchildren. Being older parents and needing lots of rest makes our vacations a definite priority to us. Our goal is to create many family memories here in our penthouse suite.

Steven and Patricia Schultz purchased this condo in 2014

Why Steven and Patricia Schultz chose Kihei

We have been coming to Hawaii for more than 20 years and since our first trip dreamed about how great it would be to have our own condo for family vacations. We have searched all over Oahu and Maui checking out the beaches and the towns. In 2014 we decided to make our dream a reality. After much research, we decided South Kihei, Maui was the best location for us. Specific reasons like many amazing beaches, restaurants and shops all within walking distance made it an easy choice. After looking at many condos we picked Kamaole 3 Penthouse because it has amazing views of the ocean and recently underwent a beautiful remodel. The penthouse also has two air conditioning units plus numerous ceiling fans which were a necessity to me. Haleakala Shores has a very comfortable and relaxing environment within the complex. This is truly a unique property which provides us with the perfect environment for rest on vacation. The previous owners did an exceptional job of keeping this penthouse clean and comfortable for all of their guests. It is our intention to maintain the same level and quality of service as has been provided in the past. We not only want to make this a very pleasant experience for ourselves but for our guests as well. Our favorite things to do in Kihei include: snorkeling, building sand castles, relaxing by the pool, dining at Cafe O'Lei or going to Maalaea Harbor for the best homemade ice cream sandwiches around.

What makes this condo unique

The panoramic ocean views you will experience from our penthouse suite are amazing. The color changes in the sky at sunset or in the water based on the weather for the day are incredible.

Two complete separate suites make this ideal for two couples.

The people living and vacationing at Haleakala shores are friendly and helpful. As you will discover Kihei is a town where everyone is up and about at 6:00 am in the morning when the sun rises. It is an opportune time to take a quiet stroll along the beach, or sit out on the lanai and enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee. Then you can spend your days on any one of the three beaches within walking distance, Kamaole Beaches I/II/III. Return to the penthouse in the evening, sit out on the lanai, relax and watch an amazing sunset. Our suite is centrally located and within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, beach gear rental stores, moped and motorcycle rental store, shaved ice and ice cream stores, nail salons, massage services, chiropractic services, coffee shops, liquor store and a grocery store.

We had a wonderful stay at the condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout, the space, and dinners on the lanai were a family favorite. The beds were comfy and the home was well finished with everything we needed. Top floor, but also kid friendly. Great location. Quiet yet close to everything we needed.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our week here in Kihei. Very convenient location with three beaches within walking distance. Shops and restaurants close, and other areas within a small drive. Condo was great, everything was as described. After visiting other parts of the island I was glad we chose to stay in this area.

Overall Great!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Kihei! The condo is nice, close to the beach (we all agreed a shorter walk than if we'd stayed at a resort), close to downtown Kihei (808 Cafe is sooo good) and the view from the lanai was gorgeous.

The beds were comfortable and the ceiling fans did plenty to keep the rooms comfortable. We did notice that the towels, while nice smelled a little bit mildew-y (perhaps just a result of the tropical Hawaiian air). We also were a bit inconvenienced by a planned cable installation that required my dad stay in the room with them for an entire afternoon. It didn't seem like something that a guest should be responsible for but I don't imagine this would be an issue for a future guest.

As mentioned by other guests, the condo has some wildly strict rules but from chatting with other folks staying in different complexes, this is very common in Kihei.

Overall a great stay and we'd stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and the feed back. We are checking with the cleaners on the mildew smell for towels. That should not be the case and we do take pride in having nice towels and bedding, so we will get on that right away. Mahalo, Steve

Great Place, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The apartment is perfect for two couples or a family with two kids. Two nice bedrooms with independent full baths. Great lanai looking toward the ocean and west Maui. We had breakfast there every morning.

They have done a good job of keeping the place nice for future guests, and it shows. The furniture was in good shape and very comfortable. The complex also had nice grill facilities and a nice pool, which our kids loved.

The complex is quiet, but an easy walk to the beach, to restaurants and coffee shops in Kihei, and a quick drive to Wailea for a splurge. This location was perfect for us.

We’d defintiely come back. Thank you for a really nice vacation base!
