We stayed in the condo for 8 days in August, and it was the best experience! I don't think I'll ever stay in a hotel again after staying in this condo! Loved, loved, loved it!! The owner was such a pleasure to deal with, and the condo was just beautiful! It was nicely decorated, and you get the best ocean view from your lanai! Very clean, has everything you need in it (even coffee and spices!) A+ + + + + + + + Highly recommended!

Just wanted to say we had a wonderful time. The condo was great. We loved the location and we got very used to opening up the blinds every morning to that view!

My wife and I celebrated 20 yrs. staying at unit # 310 in May. The condo exceeded our expectations. First off, it was spotless. New bed, queen w/ 4 posts. Like sleeping on a cloud. Very well equipped kitchen, everything works fine. The only negative, the spices in the rack didn't like the humidity. Well lit double sink bathroom w/ plenty of mirror. Living room and bedroom each had a new tv. The view from both bedroom and living room was spectacular, provided you like the ocean, palms and mountains. The bamboo and wicker furnishings throughout the condo remind youtropical latitude. Lanai furniture included 2 wrought iron chairs and table and a wicker lounge chair. Ahh yessitting on the lanai with a kona, tasting the pacific breeze while being held spell bound by the west Maui mountains. The staff was friendly and the condo owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The laundry room was literally 7 steps away from the front door... across the walkway... no, you can't hear anything. The pool looked nice & clean and the bbq area was clean. Good central location.

We stayed # 310 at the Kauhale Makai in September. What a fabulous room! Everything was perfect! The condo is sparkling from top to bottom. It has 2 flat screen tv's , beautiful kitchen, great balcony. The bathroom has a huge double sink and the bed was a four poster bed with a pillow top mattress. The only drawback was that the room did not have a washer/dryer but each floor has a nice laundry room and the room for our floor is located directly outside #310.

'Excellent! Just wanted to let you know that your condo was great! The new bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I want to write a great review on #310 for travel advisor.'


'Loved your condo! We had a great time. The view was awesome. We went to our next destination in Lahiana and did not like it. We even came to your on island manager to see if we could stay at your condo for the remaining time, but it was booked! We were Bummed. But next time, we will stay at your place the whole time. The stay was perfect. Thanks.'


'We had a wonderful time at your condo in Kihei! It was furnished beautifully in the island style. It's so well equipped with everything we could need. The balcony was one of our favorite hangouts as we started our days with Kona coffee and breakfast and enjoyed the breathtaking views (which included humpback whales at times) and at night we would enjoy cocktails and the sparkling lights across the water. Thank you for being such gracious hosts and sharing your little piece of paradise with us.'

About the area

The Kauhale Makai resort is a 3.11 acre property that features a sparkling tile pool, jacuzzi, children’s. wading pool, putting green, poolside oceanview barbecues, shuffle board, public tennis courts, volleyball, dry sauna, and laundry facilities. Sorry – no pets! (Condo by-laws prohibit pets.) We are a non-smoking facility. Our resort is located in Kihei (pronounced ‘key-hay’) on the southwest coast of the island of Maui, just 20 minutes from Kahului airport and just north of Wailea and Makena. While the rest of the island may be cloudy or rainy, Kihei is generally sunny, dry, and warmer in the winter with gorgeous tropical breezes. (Hence the nickname “Sunny Kihei.”) Our condo in Kihei is a quaint pocket of ‘quiet’ on the island. It is the best of both worlds, offering relaxation and privacy as well as quick and easy access to the world class dining and entertainment of Wailea and the lively bar and nightlife scene of downtown Kihei. Our condo is perfect for honeymooners, families, or anyone wanting relaxation as well as quick easy access to all the entertainment and dining that Maui has to offer. Our resort’s central location means that almost everything on the island is just a short drive away – the rugged coastlines and spectacular views of the road to Hana, the historic town of Lahaina, the world class shopping and golf courses of Wailea, the breathtaking beaches in Makena, and of course Kihei’s own award winning Charlie Young Beach (Kamaole Beach). You can work on your tan, swim, and snorkel 365 days a year in Kihei.

“Beautiful Kihei condo”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2016

Our family of 4 (kids ages 10 and 12) stayed for 9 days and loved it. The condo is beautifully furnished - amazingly so - and comfortable, and the ocean view is outstanding. The complex is well-kept and quiet, the pool is wonderful, and the BBQ grills are clean and convenient. We liked the location - just out of the hustle and bustle of "central" Kihei yet close to grocery stores and other amenities. Nice swimming beaches are within close driving distance. One note: the layout of this one-bedroom condo does not provide much privacy for the adults. French doors just barely separate the bedroom/bathroom area from the pull-out couch in the living room. No big deal as we knew it would be cozy with four of us, but we have seen other condos with better layouts for privacy. ;) We would definitely stay in this lovely place again!

Owner's reply: Thank you for allowing us to share our little piece of paradise with your family! Hope to have you again as our guests in the future!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

September 2016
We've had the pleasure of visiting and staying in Maui on several occasions but this was first time staying in Kihei. We won't make the mistake of staying anywhere else, nor will we look to stay anywhere else
Unit 310 has a wonderful view of the ocean, great breeze on the lanai, beautiful views of the sunset, and very well accommodated. The unit itself has practically everything one would need to feel at home. The grounds are very well maintained, reserved parking for unit 310, ample outdoor grills available for use, nice pool/hot tub, and a very nice green area between the condo and ocean.
Perhaps equally impressive was exceptional service provided the condo owner.
I would highly recommend this unit for your stay in Kihei!

Kihei condo
We had a lovely stay at the condo and in the Kihei area. This condo was conveniently located to grocery stores and restaurants. Coconuts and Nalus were especially delicious...The condo was nicely decorated, clean, well stocked with cooking supplies and beach gear, and the bed was SUPER comfortable. We all appreciated the fans and AC as well. Loved the nice view of the ocean. One less star just because there was loud construction every morning directly next to the condo so we did not enjoy sitting on the lanai in peace at all. I would definitely recommend staying here but would inquire about the construction if your stay will be during the work week.

Enjoyed our stay!
We spent a week in this condo and really liked it. The location is ideal, seems to be the quiet part of town away from the resort centres. Lovely beach and lots of conveniences within walking distance. Condo is very comfortable and outfitted with anything you might need.

August 2016
Wonderful condo. short walk to the beach which was lovely to stroll and watch the wind surfers. Close to town was nice too. Not close enough to walk for us, but close.
Thank you we had a wonderful time!

Great location and condo!
I came alone and found this condo to be affordable and in an awesome location. Watched sunsets every night and had many great restaurants within a short drive. Great beaches in Kihei and along the south coast. Highly recommend.

Everything that I was hoping for!
What a wonderful find! I did quite a bit of research to find the perfect place for us to stay while we were in Maui. I was looking for an ocean view at a reasonable price in a nice setting. I was a little hesitant about booking through the owner and not an established company, but what a delightful place! Perfectly situated just outside of Kihei and a very quick walk to the beach through a grassy lawn. (bring a flashlight if you go out at night.... frogs everywhere!!) Beautiful room, very well maintained and designed.... with a wonderful view. One bedroom, one bath was perfect for the two of us and only ran us about $650 for 5 night! I would highly recommend unit 310 for anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in Kihei!!

A Special Piece of Paradise
Everything about our stay was fantastic. There are no negatives here. The owner, Cynthia, was a pleasure to work with. She is very hands-on and takes great pride in her ownership and management of the condo, down to the slightest detail. The condo is a good size for 2 or 4 guests. It has an amazing view. The grounds are beautiful, well kept and manicured. The front office is very accommodating, and check in was a breeze. Pools and hot tub were sparkling clean. The bed was comfortable, and the decor is outstanding. Kitchen is very well stocked with cooking utensils, spices and paper towels. There are many good restaurants and lovely beaches close by. What else can I say? I would recommend this place without hesitation, and hope to return in the future.

Perfect Maui vacation condo with all the upgrades!
This condo was perfect for my solo vacation/retreat on Maui, but I would highly recommend it for two+, as it is equipped for more and has storage space galore. The upgrades and beautiful decor (just as in photos) were very pleasing, as well as comfortable. A wonderful shower, very private lanai with the most comfy chairs & ottomans I've ever experienced, and a real plus; air conditioning. The view from the lanai was ever changing in the daytime with activity on the bay and at night the lights across the bay were lovely. This property is nicely maintained and the pool is beautifully tiled and was never crowded (like larger properties further south). I enjoyed walking the beach everyday and rarely saw many people. There are better beaches around for snorkeling, but I swam and floated often in the morning calm waters. As far as location, this area is also much quieter than further south, but still convenient for grocery, restaurants, and access to about anything you would want to do. The only minor drawback in my entire stay was some road noise during daytime while sitting on the lanai. Otherwise; first rate, an excellent value, and easy contact with owner.

I rented four units in Village by the Sea for a " Family Vacation" . Let me say that unit 310 was "outstanding". The ambiance was incredible. We wanted for nothing, all the ammenities were there, including a large variety of spices, which is unusual. Everyone mentions the bed, again, fabulous. I think that more pictures could be posted showing the double sinks in the bathroom. Another plus. The Lanai furniture again outshone all the outdoor furniture in the complex. So relaxing sitting enjoying ones coffee or tea in the morning. I would rate this suite A++++. Mahalo

Very Happy & Pleased w/Condo!
We finally arrived back home and I wanted to do my review while it was still fresh - so here goes:
We loved this Condo/apartment! Upon entering I thought, "Yes! - Thank You Lord! - This is Awesome !!" I've used online booking services many times and there is always some concern & apprehension - because pictures usually make the place look better than reality. In this case the pictures don't do it justice. So I was very pleased. The handsome, rich wood furniture, Hawaiian accents, fixtures and pictures - were all put together so well. Attractive tile and enclosure used in the shower area and the plumbing fixtures were very modern and stylish. Even my husband commented on how nice the place was. We both enjoyed the view and the furnishings on the patio, and took turns sitting on the big cozy chair with the matching ottoman. One afternoon we watched 2 "Kite-Surfers?" (not sure what sport this is?) go back and forth right in front of us - an amazing colorful display, with such a beautiful back-drop. We did walk to the beach and found that the waves have carved the sand from the shore line, which would make it difficult for me to get to and from the beach/water. But, we found many beautiful beaches (more suited for me) just down the road. A big plus is that this unit is on the beach side of the road, the majority of the other units are across the street. So I prefer this unit.

The stores and restaurants were close by and found all supplies, groceries, restaurants and other needs close by. We found Ululani's Shaved Ice in an air-conditioned building right down the street - next to ABC. This place is much better than standing in the long line in Lahaina, with the sun beating down on you. So, this was our last stop on our way to the airport.

Another plus I want to mention, is the security guard right on the grounds. We called one night because someone had parked in our stall, the guard came promptly and he noted that this new tenant was supposed to be in the next stall and he told us to park in their stall. Typically, a quiet, peaceful place, except when a variety of local birds would create high pitched music or noise - which made the place seem more tropical and fun. Maui is a wonderful place to visit and I look forward to our next visit - and we will book this unit again.
Another plus - the grounds are beautifully maintained, and there are many blooming tropical plants.
Thank you Cynthia for creating such a beautiful place to stay. Aloha & Mahalo!
