About the area

Luxurious ground floor accommodation, just steps from the beach, that includes 1390 sq.ft. of living space, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, well equipped gourmet kitchen, comfortable living/dining room, private laundry, 4 zone AC, flat screen cable TV, free WiFi, free long distance telephone calls to USA & Canada, private lanai & outdoor furniture, common heated ocean side pool, common gas BBQ's, free parking. Set apart to the front northside of the resort, it's peaceful and private. The large, west facing lanai offers unobstructed views of Molokini Crater, the islands of Lanai and Kahoolawe, the west Maui mountains, Kamaole II Beach and of course the ever engaging Pacific Ocean - whales and turtles, paddle boarders and outrigger canoeists. Early risers wake to the pastel hues of dawn on the oceanscape, and, as 'pupu' time arrives Maui's incredible sunsets are on full display. Walk out the patio door and you're steps away from beautiful Kamaole Beach II. The hard sand near the waters edge is great for walking, running, playing games, or just frolicking in the water. Go boarding or snorkel with the turtles in the reefs. And, because there's limited nearby public parking & access, its not crowded! For some fitness, stroll or run the wonderful beach/trail system which extends all the way to Makena. It's so peaceful, and with nothing but beach and ocean in front of you, its easy to forget about the many shops, stores, restaurants and pubs which are conveniently located just a short walk away - past the office, across the parking area and onto South Kihei road. Try sticky buns and coffee at the Cinnamon Roll Place across the street!! You have direct access to the white sands of Kamaole Beach Park II. The calm, warm waters of the Pacific and a snorkeling reef directly in front of the unit make this the ideal location. LOCATION - consistently sunny weather, great beach, gentle ocean, good beach trails, short drive from airport, close to the best shops-stores-restaurants-golf courses. CONVENIENCE - no stairs/no elevators - direct access to beach, ocean, pools, BBQ’s, grounds, parking. Lots of great restaurant choices, many in walking distance. Maui Thai, Bistro 808, Cafe O'Lei, Cinnamon Roll Place and of course, Fred's Mexican Cafe, are all across the street. There are many high end dining restaurants a ten minute drive in Wailea.

Getting around

Lots of parking, public transportation right out front and reliable taxi service.

“Luxury and location”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2017

I stayed here for a week in January with my Mom. Every detail in this condo has been considered and the owners treat this like their home, not just a rental property. The towels, the beds, the sheets and the furnishings are all top quality-as nice as I have at home. It was wonderful to sit on the lanai and get a whale show every day and having a cocktail while watching the sunset was one of the best things every day. The location is 5 stars and so is the care and attention to detail in the unit.

From the moment you walk into Karen's home, to the moment you walk through onto the lanai, you'll realize you've found heaven. There's nothing lacking from this home, and you're but mere steps to the beach. There are countless restaurants, coffee shops, stores, and shops just across the street. Magnificent star gazing at night! You'll immediately book your next vacation back to Karen's house when you return home.

Owner's reply: Thank-you for the kind review, Jane and Marten! We are taking bookings for 2017 & 2018!

Anchor Cove is a comfortable, wonderful place to stay while in Kihei. The location is the best as you are steps from the very calm beach. The condo is well equipped with whattever you need for your stay including boogie boards, snorkels, et cetera. My fondest memories of this vacation are the beautiful sunsets that are never the same. Would highly recommend staying here

Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review! We hope to hear from you again. Karen

My Maui experience, in my dreams, was to wake up and go sit on the Lanai, and be right at the ocean, not above it, or block away from it, but right there to experience the sounds, smells and wildlife...it would mean that I could use the provided snorkel gear to go and swim with Sea turtles, swim with them, and if I wanted to, reach out and pet them. I would want the place to be clean, functional and have a real Maui feel, i would want it to be close to shops and restaurants and be able to still drive to a volcano or scenic road to Hana, in my dream I would want all these things. Well guess what....this place has all that and more, LLoyd and Karen were amazing in the information / setup of the rental. In short my expectations were not met, but over-achieved. This is how Maui should be experienced, 12 out of 10 from my perspective.

Owner's reply: Thanks-you, Brian! We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Anchor Cove. Keep us in mind for your next Maui vacation!

If you've never been to Maui or are thinking of visiting somewhere else on the island, look no further than this incredible villa overlooking one of the best beaches and sunsets in the world. Anchor Cove D2 owners Karen and Lloyd have made available their private villa that has EVERYTHING one needs while in paradise, even a weekly live hula performance 20 feet from their back patio. So don't let the price scare you, it also includes the best views, swimmimg, snorkling, clean comfy beds/pillows, nice linens, storage, plentiful beach towels, roomy bedrooms, remodeled bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, spacious showers, washer/dryer, TVs, heated pool, nice dishes/silverware, big refrigerator, cool air conditioning, beach bags, 4 beach chairs, snorkle gear, boogie boards, TWO beach umbrellas, cooking pots/pans/utensils, blenders, rugs, leather swivel-rocker recliners, spices/seasonings...even a beach cooler!! There is literally nothing they haven't thought of! The Hawaiian beach decor is lovely and the place could not have been cleaner. It comfortably slept 4 adults...a kid or two could sleep on the large, comfortable sectional sofa. The velvet sand beach is steps away, as is the clean heated pool. The patio is the best part and they even provide a rinse-off water hose. The vibe of Hale Pau Hana resort is very chill...people sun, nap, read, swim, paddleboard, snorkle, eat, drink and play at their own pace and all are very respectful. I wish I could live there. The villa itself occupies half of a duplex structure located on the resort but it sits slightly away from the other guests...you feel special and secluded but still part of the complex. Parking is simple and plentiful. On top of ALL of these things, is the location in Kihei. Everything anyone needs is literally across the street! ABC store, general store, world-class food, comfort food, souvenier shops, rental shops, health food shops, bars, etc. And, one of the island's best restaurants--Coconuts--is scheduled to open in late 2016 right across the street. As if I needed another reason to return soon! Thank you Karen and Lloyd for our best Maui stay yet. We will miss snorkling with the many sea turtles! You are one classy Canadian couple. Mahalo

Owner's reply: Wow! Thank-you for expressing so well what we also love about Anchor Cove D2 and Hale Pau Hana. We are now taking reservations for 2017 and 2018. Let me know if you're interested!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This gorgeous vacation unit is spotlessly clean, well taken care of, and is outfitted with everything you could possibly need or want on a vacation. The kitchen is especially amazing to putter and cook in, and there’s a grocery store a short drive away. The condo is spacious and the beds are amazingly comfortable. This is a very peaceful and beautiful location that faces the ocean, and we enjoyed watching sunrises, sunsets, and stargazing from the lanai. The turtles swim very close to shore and seem to be very friendly and curious, they’ll swim right up and check you out. Snorkelling just out front of the unit is fun and safe, and of course the beach and ocean are heavenly. The Kehei area has a lot to offer in the way of shopping, dining and evenings out as well, very easy to find your way around. The owners of this unit are very friendly and accommodating, and I have recommended this vacation spot to other friends and acquaintances. All in all I had a wonderful vacation and am very grateful to have stayed here!

This was our first trip to Maui and we picked the ultimate place to stay. This condo is fully equipped with everything you could possibly use on your vacation. From the chef friendly kitchen, outdoor BBQ's, to the king sized beds in both rooms, smart TV's and air conditioning throughout the condo made the stay very comfortable. The suite has wifi throughout, which made it very easy to connect back home as small business owners. The condo was very beautiful, but what we loved the most was the location. The condo is located on the beach with nothing obstructing your views of the whales jumping while eating breakfast or sitting on the lanai watching the gorgeous sunsets; which made it hard to leave at the end of the day. It is also walking distance to great restaurants and natural grocery stores. We would highly recommend staying here and can not wait until we can go back!

We absolutely loved this location! Right on the water, sunsets were beautiful, great area for shops, dining and activity centers all within a short walk. Beautiful condo with an even better view! Cant wait to go back!

This property is fantastic. We had a 10 day vacation stay with no problems. This property is steps from the beach and pool. Very spacious private patio where you can watch the sunset and have supper . The property is very clean and spacious, it is great for families. It is fully equipped with all amenities. It has everything you need including beach toys, snorkeling gear, towels etc all you need to bring is your bathing suit and sunscreen. The property also has its own very large washer and dryer. The grounds and bbq area are meticulously kept clean and well maintained. Various great golf courses are very close along with shopping and good restaurants . This property is truly worry free living at its best. We would highly recommend this property and we will be looking forward to going back . .

My family and I had the pleasure of staying here for 10 glorious days in July 2015. Having visited Maui a few times before this was our first time staying in Kiehi and we just loved it! The location of the home was unbeatable. Walking distance to shopping, coffee shops, rental shops, bakery and restaurants and more, everything you need! Situated directly on the beach front you are just a few steps to the sand and ocean. The views from the lanai are breathtaking not to mention the sunsets! The beach itself, Kamaole Beach II is perfect for families with small children as the waves are calmer than some other beaches. Also its a great beach if you are just learning to boogie board, paddle board or snorkel, there are turtles right out front! The property itself is decorated beautifully and comfortably. It truly is a home in paradise. The bedrooms are very large with ample storage and king size beds, beautifully updated bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need, barbecues are close by for grilling fresh seafood, large living room with comfortable and updated furniture, lots of seating for everyone on the lanai and it also has a/c and w/d inside the unit. This property is perfect for anyone especially families with small children, disabilities, seniors because there are no stairs so there is easy access to get in and out of the home (beach side and front door) and very close to the parking lot. It would be very difficult to stay anywhere else after staying here. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and hope to visit again. Thank You Karen & Lloyd! It truly is Maui Heaven!!

My new husband and I were here for our honeymoon with friends of ours who were also married a couple of weeks prior. When I say this place was paradise, I mean it was ABSOLUTE PARADISE. From the comfortable king size beds and large, homey living space and totally private lanai to the kitchen any cook would love and a view of the ocean to die for; it was amazing. The location is also perfect. It's within walking distance to lots of beaches and nice restaurants/shops but it's also in an area that gets quiet as soon as the sun goes down so you don't get the noisy parties but can still join in them if you want to! All in all it was a perfect two weeks with much time spent enjoying this beautiful and completely 'unique to the resort' condo. It is the penthouse of paradise and we will definitely be back!

Absolutely best spot on Maui! Excellent accommodation, steps from the beach in a gorgeous, unique property. Everything you could want or need only a few minutes walk away, dining (Cuatro), shopping, snorkelling on the reef only a few swim strokes off the beach, truly paradise.
