About the property

New Luxury Beachfront Home with 3 private units that combine for large groups

Villa Moana Maui (vmmaui) is a $4.5 million luxury home tucked away on a quiet beachfront street, but is just blocks from downtown Kihei, allowing you to walk in moments to great restaurants, coffee shops, the gym or yoga studio, a craft cocktail bar or hip local shopping boutiques.

Enjoy staying on a quiet road, somewhat hidden from the easily accessible Kihei town and serenely situated directly on the beach. Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves, wake up to a symphony of birds, open the expansive sliding glass walls to bring the outside in, enjoy a glass of wine on the large lanai while watching humpback whales splash and play in the ocean.

Entertain friends or host your entire family. Have private spaces as well as large open spaces to gather together. Every amenity and need is supplied and included complimentary. You will never pay for parking, high speed internet, movies, laundry or beach equipment.

This large luxury villa can be rented in whole or in part; with the Studio, the 3 BR Beach Villa or the 4 BR Ocean Villa, or the bundled rate below for the entire villa with 8 bedrooms with 9 beds and 6.5 bathrooms. The entire villa will sleep a total of 16 adults in beds; plus we can add a roll-a-way bed (for that teen that refuses to sleep with their sibling any longer) and one or two cribs/playpens if needed. With children as part of the group, we can fit up to 18 guests total.

Smart Samsung HDTVs have premium cable as well as built in Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video services. Blazingly fast dedicated internet at 100mbps is all yours, there’s no hotel full of guests to slow down your connection. Wi-Fi is offered throughout the property.

We’ve made heavenly beds to match our heavenly location. Crisp percale linens cover new luxury firm mattresses with an assortment of pillows to suite your preference; whether down feather or memory foam. All our linens are ironed, so every sheet and pillow case is crisp and smooth. It makes for an amazing bed.

Our fabulous kitchens have been personally equipped by the owner; a gourmet chef who loves to entertain. High-end knives and flatware match the professional series cooktops, appliances and all-clad cookware. A separate wet bar is stocked with extra wine glasses and champagne flutes and includes a dedicated wine fridge and bar sink. All the tools to create a craft cocktail are at your fingertips and all the tools to create and serve a multi-course dinner are at the ready. Private chef services are easily available.

Three large capacity clothes washers and dryers are in the Villa and we supply eco-friendly unscented detergent.

Our cleaning staff never uses harsh chemicals and all laundry is done with unscented detergents.

There are three units:

The Ocean Villa sleeps 8 - It’s a 4 bedroom 3.5 bath with 1,900 sq. ft. on top floor - King/King/Queen/Twin beds

The Beach Villa sleeps 6 – It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath on the beach level – King/Queen/Queen

The Studio sleeps 2 – It’s a large studio apartment with separate kitchen, bath, a reading nook and dining area with a King bed.

All units have ocean views and open up to tropical ocean breezes.

I've traveled to more than 35 countries for pleasure or work. From being a student sleeping at a Madrid hostel to an adult at Skibo Castle in Scotland; I know what it takes to make a visitor feel like a cherished guest and for an accommodation to make you feel like you're being embraced by the location.

We have an amazing staff, a jaw dropping location and a lofty goal: to exceed your expectations and help you create an experience you will remember forever.

We have a dedicated local concierge on staff to make the standard activities great and to create the once in a lifetime experiences just for you. purchased this villa in 2014

Why chose Kihei

The History: We were paddle boarding and landed on the beach in front. The owner said hello and we chatted. The place was a rundown mess, but in the most amazing location, in what felt like a very sacred area. The owner was tired and wanted to sell. We wanted to redo the entire thing and have it fit with the location, which meant make it stunning. We think we created a peaceful, beautiful and ecological home that is in balance with the nature around it. It took two years and double the original budget, but it was worth every penny. Now it's ready for you to enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

You will be a moments walk to great restaurants and shops and grocery stores and cafes...but the home is tucked away on a back street that runs along the beach. You get the retreat quiet oceanfront location with everything you want in a resort town nearby.

Kihei is the one part of the island that is reliably sunny and warm 99% of the time.

This property is exceptional. With so many rundown homes full of second hand furnishings or mismatched items from the owners unwanted or surplus supply, this is an exception.

This home and everything in it is new, purposefully chosen, of the highest quality and orchestrated to create a cohesive and beautiful experience.

We've made a home for you here on Maui.

44 solar panels plus solar hot water help offset the carbon footprint of the Villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've stayed at many amazing vacation homes but this was the most luxurious. Truly nicer than 5 Star Resorts. Matt met us when we arrived & provided high-quality leis to our entire party of 12. Matt provided many Hawaiian snacks, fruit drinks, champagne upon our arrival. Everything in the house is ultra premium quality (beds, sheets, towels, robes, etc.). Matt is available to answer any question about Maui at a moments notice. Book all your excursions with Matt & you will be treated to the best experiences. Sea turtles climb onto the shore each evening directly behind the villa. Watch the whales from the deck with the binoculars provided. Check-out all the beach gear in the shed. We had an amazing vacation...thanks Matt. We didn't want to leave.

A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible. Everything was perfect. The location right next to the beach, the beautifully finished house and amenities and the conceirge service from the staff. It was more like staying at a friend's place (and one with excellent taste) than your typical VRBO rental.

Wyatt and Scott were also incredible hosts who thought of every last detail. They 100% delivered on everything we asked for and went well beyond the ordinary. For example, we had some board game fans in our group. I mentioned this to Wyatt and the next day there were 10 board games that arrived, which were perfect for the late evenings.

I hope we are all so lucky as to stay here again. This was the best HomeAway property I've experienced in more than a decade of using the service.

Fantastic property, amazing service

  • 5 of 5

We rented the whole villa for an adult party of 13 for my 40th birthday. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the property itself... the amenities, the location, the views from every room — simply spectacular. The game changer, though, is the service. The owners are very communicative & will go WAY out of their way to make sure your stay is the best rental experience of your life.

As a vacation rental veteran, I can assure you that you won’t find better in Maui (or probably anywhere). Thanks, guys!!

Perfection !

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed in Villa Moama for a wonderful 11 nights in January. We were 3 generations, and the house worked perfectly for us, separate areas for some quiet time and the big balcony upstairs where we shared family dinners with the magic ocean view & sunsets. The house is thoughtfully provided with fully fitted kitchens (important for a family that cooks !), wonderfully comfortable beds, welcoming hampers, toiletries and even beach kit ! Matt, Wyatt & Scott were very welcoming & attentive, making sure that our time at Villa Moama was special. It was ! A memorable holiday and we cannot recommend the villa more highly.

Wonderful beach property!

  • 5 of 5

We were a big group, our entire family including my mother in law, so we rented all three units. It was nice for us to spread out and to feel comfortable in our own space and then to enjoy meals and beach time together! We were treated royally throughout our stay by Matt, he is the perfect concierge, every suggestion he had for us was perfect whether it was restaurant ideas, or fun things to do. My granddaughter wanted to take a hula lesson so he arranged for a women to come to the house to teach us all out on the grass overlooking the beautiful ocean. The house was clean, and in perfect order, with great access to anything we needed such as grocery stores, drug stores, surfing rentals etc. we loved the fresh lei greeeting along with goodies in each unit for us to enjoy. No one wanted to leave!🌴? We can't wait to go back. Darrell & Sheila Smart

This location is the perfect balance of a quiet street directly with the home being directly on the ocean, but just a few block from Kihei Town so you can get or do anything with just a few minutes of walking.

The convenience and ease of Kihei with the quiet luxury and beachfront setting typical of Wailea.
