Located right on the beach in North Kihei, Hale Kai O’Kihei offers 1 and 2 bedroom vacation condos with room for up to 6 guests. With no road between the resort and the shoreline, you’re only a few steps away from a casual stroll on the white sandy beach. Only rows of palm trees and a well-trimmed carpet of green grass and tropical landscaping separate your Maui condo rental from the water’s edge. Kahului Airport is just a 20-minute car ride away.
Each oceanfront vacation rental comes with a private lanai that glimpses at the sparkling blue but for better viewing, choose ones with 180° views. Wake up to vistas of the Pacific Ocean or end your day watching glorious sunsets right from your own balcony. You may even spot honu (sea turtles) come ashore or Humpback whales breaching in season.
The Hale Kai O’Kihei condo amenities in each condominium for rent include a full kitchen, cable television, free WiFi, telephone service and air-conditioning. Watch the news on a large flat screen TV, and connect to the internet to keep you updated on local happenings and weather forecasts. DVD players let you catch up on your favorite movies on those lazy afternoons.
The fully equipped kitchen comes with everything you should need and is an inviting place to dine in with an uninterrupted island view. With a fully equipped kitchen, you can source fresh produce from the nearby market and prepare a tasty meal in style. Brew fresh coffee first thing in the morning as you listen to the waves gently crashing, or reheat your take-out from last night in the microwave.
Amenities in the Hale Kai O’Kihei Resort make your stay more pleasant and relaxing. Take a dip at the beachfront pool as you admire the colorful tropical flowers. Loungers are available outside if you just want to bask in the warm Hawaiian sun and read your favorite book. The BBQ equipment on the grounds makes it easy to grill fresh “ahi” and enjoy a meal on your private lanai.
You don’t have to leave the resort to clean your clothes as there are washers/dryers on-site. Some Maui condos at this beachfront resort even have their own so there’s no need going down to the ground floor to take care of laundry.
Maui Beachfront Vacation Rentals in Kihei
The Hale Kai O’Kihei condo rentals are individually owned so each villa’s layout, furnishings and amenities are unique from all the others. Perhaps you like to feel at home as you walk into a new place, enrich your travel experience with interior décor that reflects your vacation mood. Earth tones with comfortable furniture in subdued shades would help create that welcoming atmosphere that brings in the tropical themes of outdoor Hawaii. If a more contemporary set-up is what you’re after, consider a unit with a monochrome motif set off with bright accents of art and modern furniture. To put you in the mood for a luxurious island getaway, choose a rental with plush down sofas, Polynesian-themed décor and retractable lanai glass doors that invite the outdoors in.
Hale Kai O’Kihei Resort is centrally located in South Maui so you can conveniently access things you need for a more relaxed vacation. The Times Supermarket is a block away while the Azeka Shopping Center, which offers a range of dining options as well as professional services, is a short walk from the resort. Japanese cuisine, Vietnamese food, and fresh seafood can also be found nearby. Farther down the road, classic American eats, quick bites and comfort food are on offer.
Dig your heels in the sand that goes on for miles right outside your Kihei condo rental. The sea here is calm as it’s protected by a reef offshore. For wave conditions ideal for beginner surfing, head to Cove Park a mile and a half away from the resort. The hidden cove here is also a suitable place to swim and kayak.
For a feeling of having a beach to yourself, visit Kalepolepo Beach a mile away. It’s largely uncrowded and historically significant. Fronting the beach is an ancient Hawaiian fish pond fed by underground natural springs. This is one of the remaining fish ponds open to the public. (This used to be reserved to Hawaiian royalty.) Experienced kiteboarders and windsurfers find the beach an ideal take-off point when the conditions are right.
About 10 to 15 minutes away from the Hale Kai O’Kihei condos are the three Kamaole Beach parks. The beautiful white sand crescent of Kamaole I has an inviting white sand bottom in the middle made for swimming. Enjoy a variety of water-based activities at Kamaole II, a smaller version of Kamaole I. Aside from swimming, snorkeling on the ends of the crescent-shaped beach is popular. Early in the day, when the water is calm, paddleboarding can be fun.
With its rugged shores, Kamaole III is different in appearance from Kamaole I and II. Waves crash against its rocky promontories, sending huge splashes of water into the air. The picnic area here is grassy so it’s a wonderful place to simply soak up the views. It’s also popular with the locals and offers a nice opportunity to get a glimpse of the local life.
