The enticing beaches of Wailea are just down the road, Lahaina is half an hour’s drive to the north, while Maalaea Harbor and Kahului Airport are just 20 minutes away. This South Maui vacation condominium is right by the water’s edge as only a lush lawn separates the property from the beach.

With 1 to 2 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 guests, Kauhale Makai vacation rentals makes a perfect base for a small family or group of friends to explore this incredible side of the island.

From the upper floors, take the elevator to make the most of the resort facilities downstairs. Practice your short game at the putting green. Dip into the oceanfront pool when the afternoon winds make the beach out front rough for swimming.

Maui Beachfront Condos in Kihei

The oceanfront property borders Waipuilani County Park with access to six tennis courts, two volleyball courts, shuffleboard courts, and the beautiful sand and coral Waipuilani Beach. Perfect for long walks, watching spectacular sunsets and peaceful sunbathing. Here at AA Oceanfront Rentals, we represent various vacation rentals by owner (VRBO and other online sales) and pride ourselves on managing the owners’ rental property to a high standard. In some condo units, the ocean never really leaves your sight as you move from the living room to the kitchen to the bedroom. During the winter season, you might even witness migrating humpback whales flocking to Maui's warm waters right outside your balcony.

Clear glass sliding doors blend the tropical theme inside and out, and let the sea breeze in if you choose not to turn on the living room A/C. Opt for a unit with central air-conditioning for utmost comfort all the way to the bedrooms. Even as you're away on vacation, you can stay tuned in to the happenings outside with cable TV and connect to people back home with free wireless internet and telephone service.

The fully equipped kitchen inspires cooking confidence, whether you're simply making toast and brewing coffee, blending nutritious tropical smoothies, or putting together your favorite meal from scratch. Take advantage of the shopping center within walking distance or broaden your dining experience in a nearby restaurant. You can always bring home the leftovers and reheat them in the microwave.

Warm-colored palette, tropical-themed flourishes, and comfortable furnishings welcome you as you step inside your chosen Maui condo rental. The open layout lends a spacious feel, allowing you to catch a glimpse of the ocean as you move into the adjoining dining area. Or take your meals outside in your private lanai as you soak up the ocean and mountain views, and gaze down at the pool and tropical gardens below from your "top of the world" perch.

Do you wish to wake up to ocean views while you’re still in bed? Here at Kauhale Makai condo resort, some bedrooms come with their own private lanai. If you take the ground floor condo, you're just a glass door slide away from the beach and from the lush gardens. Induce calm sleep by opening the lanai doors and breathing in the sea breeze just before you slip into the plush covers.

Before heading out to world-class golf courses in Wailea, be sure to practice your swing at the resort's putting green first.

For groceries, shopping and eating out, the short drive or walk to the Azeka Place Shopping Center within a mile away rewards you with access to a post office, bank, drug store, and numerous boutiques and restaurants. If you wish to venture outside the mall experience, a range of dining options await discerning palates. Places to grab comfort food and quick bites abound within a mile or two of Kauhale Makai Village by the Sea, while Mexican and Asian fare, along with a bounty of seafood, can also be had nearby.

Glide gracefully across the waters of Kihei and Wailea on a kiteboarding adventure, or bring a surfboard and find a friendly wave at the popular Cove Park just 10 minutes away from the Kauhale Makai condos. Early morning is also a perfect time to take your paddleboard out to catch waves. Or stick to the basics and simply swim out with goggles and fins, and you just might encounter a turtle or two.

Not far from the Cove Park is the equally popular Kamaole Beach Park I (the first of the triad of beaches of the same name). Starting on this side of Maui, the white sand beaches take on an exotic look, which is what the crescent-shaped Kamaole Beach Park I is about. The white sandy bottom of the beach makes a perfect place to swim while the ends offer snorkelling potential.

Avid shoppers – and golfers – set their sights outside of town to Wailea where several boutiques and championship golf courses attract a world-class crowd. These South Maui beaches are also renowned for their beauty: Some of the area's signature beaches are Wailea Beach, known for consistently reaping awards (and attracting throngs of beachgoers) for the quality of its sand and water; Polo Beach for its fantastic swimming and snorkelling areas; and Ulua Beach Park, a favorite of morning joggers and sunset walkers. Paddleboarders find the waters just beyond the bay ideal for their sport.

Less than 10 miles farther down the coast, the coastal lava field of Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve begs exploration. For an otherworldly and off-the-beaten adventure, set your sights a few more miles farther down to La Perouse Bay where trails beckon with an energizing hike on fairly level if rough terrain. Views along the cliffs include lava arches and spouts. If you're lucky, you might even spot dolphins, turtles and monk seals.

The Big Island

As the second-largest and second-most-visited island in the state, Maui offers a balance between the high-energy big city vibe of Oahu and the untamed country life of the Big Island. It’s a popular destination for tourists who want the best of both worlds. Maui may have a busy downtown area and several tourist hubs in Lahaina, Kihei, and Wailea, but you will see very few high rises.

Maui offers an impressive variety of vacation homes, condo rentals, and hotel resorts despite its size.

You also get all of that for a fraction of the cost of a hotel room.
