Kihei Holiday oceanfront condo resort is located just a few steps away from one of the longest stretches of sand in Maui. Located in North Kihei, this South Maui property is less than 15 minutes drive from Maalaea and the white sand beaches of Wailea, and a little more than half an hour’s drive from Lahaina. Kahului Airport is only 20 minutes to the north.
For a true Hawaiian vacation getaway, book Maui vacation rentals that put you close to the action, like Kihei Holiday resort does with its central location. Offering 1 and 2-bedroom oceanfront condos that sleep up to 6 guests, this condo resort features private lanais where you can take in stunning garden and pool views, Hawaii sunsets, the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean, and the islands just offshore. In the winter season, whales can be seen breaching the horizon when they flock to the bay’s warm waters. Get a better view of these anticipated visitors from the beach or from the viewing deck of the Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary less than half a mile down the road.
Let in plenty of natural sunlight and sea breeze when you open the glass doors, or turn on the air-conditioning in the living room for a more constant cool indoor temperature. Sink into a large comfortable sofa to see what’s on TV or to enjoy your favorite movie. Or get outside and soak up the sun while immersing in a favorite book. If you’d like to stay connected all throughout your stay, the wireless internet and the telephone service allow you to let people back home know how you’re doing.
Cooking your own meals is made easier with full, modern kitchens, plenty of storage space, and ample kitchen counters that, in some units, double as a bar-like space. Whether you like to brew your own coffee or tea in the morning, whip up a refreshing smoothie to be enjoyed out on the patio, or prepare your favorite food from scratch, the modern appliances make all your kitchen preparation smooth and hassle-free.
When it’s time to sit down for meals, you have several seating options. The spacious dining area adjoins the kitchen, and outside, the lanai looks out to the grassy lawn and the lush gardens. If you want to do it outdoors, fire up the large BBQ grills and enjoy fresh seafood in the nearby picnic table.
Kihei Holiday vacation rentals have open floor plans that connect the living room to the dining area and to the kitchen so you feel welcomed into a roomy sanctuary with nature just outside your door. The color scheme of the condo rentals ranges from sleek whites to pastels and the decor consists of Polynesian touches, tropical ornaments, and floral and marine life-themed embellishments. The bedrooms have adequate natural lighting, storage space, and extra television in the master’s bedroom. You don’t have to leave the condo to clean your clothes as full washers/dryers are installed in the bathrooms.
Kihei Holiday Vacation Rentals
With a couple of golf courses and a public tennis court within two to three miles of Kihei Holiday, dipping into the Jacuzzi to soothe aching joints, or leisurely floating in the lap pool should round out a busy day. Cap it all off with a night out in one of a handful of Maui restaurants within 15 minutes’ drive where you can sample Hawaiian cuisine, farm-to-table fare, and Japanese staples, to name a few.
Sugar Beach stretches for seven miles, making it one of the longest, if not the longest beach in Maui ideal for a stroll. It’s also notable for its breezy offshore winds, so it’s a perfect launching spot for kite- and windsurfers. Kayakers also find the conditions suitable for their sport, so you’re surrounded by a few activities here when you step outside your Hawaii condo rental.
For more adventurous trips much farther out to sea, take the short drive to Maalaea Harbor a few miles to the north. From there, whale watching cruises depart, including excursions for fishing, diving, and snorkelling. The harbor is also the launching point for trips to Molokini Crater. Even if you remain landbound, you’ll still discover plenty of amusement here, like the Pacific Whale Foundation (which conducts whale watching trips) and the Maui Ocean Center, a huge living aquarium that houses a cross-section of the Pacific Ocean’s marine life.
Adjacent to the Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary is the Kalepolepo Beach Park favored by locals and visitors in the know who wish to escape the crowd and experience a more authentic slice of local Maui life. This park also brims with culture and history, as it was once a royal fishing pond whose stone walls today protect a shallow wading pool from the waves. Families with small children frequent this park for this very reason.
Beginner surfers might want to look farther south to get training. Cove Park has ideal surf conditions for novice surfers, and is surrounded by outfitters willing to give lessons whether you come with your own gear or not. Not far down the coast are the Kamaole Beaches, divided into I, II, and III, with the first beach having the longest and nicest sand ideal for swimming. The rocks bracketing each end of Kamaole I are good spots for snorkeling, which can also be said for the rocky ends of Kamaole II. Boogie boarders are sometimes out at Kamaole III at a spot where waves focus. Otherwise, this park is a local favorite for its huge lawn and a small playground for kids.
At Kihei Holiday Resort, you’re never far away from all the thrilling action, whether on land, on the beach, or in the water. And if you know where to look, you can have your own slice of paradise without others getting in the way of a good view. So let the local experts do the hard work for you, and connect you to the best vacation rentals available in Maui while you sit back, relax, and dream of the ultimate tropical getaway.
