Rising six stories high just a few steps away from the water’s edge, Menehune Shores is a stunningly manicured oceanfront resort nestled amongst our various North Kihei vacation rentals. With Maalaea harbor to the north and the white sand beaches of Wailea down the coast are less than 20 minutes' drive from the property. Kahului Airport is also about half an hour away, making this one of the more convenient places to stay.
Menehune Shores Kihei condominium is your ideal Maui vacation rental for couples, families and friends traveling together for a well-deserved island holiday getaway. Step inside and you will discover spacious 1 or 2-bedroom beachfront condos for rent sleeping up to 6 guests. Gorgeous Hawaii sunsets can be viewed from each condo villa’s private lanai, which also look out onto the Pacific Ocean, a few neighboring islands, the West Maui mountains, the oceanfront pool, and the beautifully kept tropical landscape. Some vacation condo rentals directly look down into the nearby ancient royal fish pond where sea turtles are regularly sighted. During the winter season, breaching whales can be spotted offshore right from your balcony!
Open the sliding glass doors from your Menehune Shores condominium for a nice ocean breeze or turn on the living room A/C for constant comfortable temperature. Sink into the welcoming couch while watching TV (available in the living room and bedroom in some units), or connect to the WiFi to stream your favorite movie. DVDs are available, too, if you can't find your favorite titles online. With a supermarket nearby, you would have plenty of reasons to get busy in the full kitchen installed with stylish countertops and equipped with modern appliances. You can brew fresh coffee and enjoy it hot while admiring the views, whip up a fruit shake for a refreshing afternoon treat, or reheat in the microwave a favorite take away from a nearby restaurant.
Wake up to ocean views first thing in the morning from a beachfront bedroom. Bright and airy living rooms open to dining areas that could seat up to six. Some Menehune Shores vacation rentals have been upgraded to a more contemporary design while others evoke a lived in and cozy tropical ambiance. If you want to splurge, choose condos for rent – usually furnished with plush leather and hardwood furniture – that have been completely remodeled with luxury in mind. Like many Maui condo rentals, island, tropical, and Polynesian-themed decor can be found in most units. The interior color palette ranges from whites, creams, beiges, and browns to pastels and subdued shades.
Oceanfront Vacation Rentals with Panoramic Island Views
For 360 degree views, make your way up to the rooftop sunning area and soak in the stunning panorama of ocean, mountains and islands. An elevator then takes you downstairs to the ground floor beachfront restaurant and cocktail lounge. Gas barbecue grills by the oceanfront pool let you enjoy a BBQ picnic after taking a dip or sliding a disc in the outdoor shuffleboard courts. Some of our Menehune Shores condos for rent come with a washer and dryer installed in-unit so there is no need to wash your laundry offsite.
For your retail, service, and dining needs, a Kihei shopping center containing Maui restaurants, boutiques, and a local supermarket is less than a mile away. You'll find Hawaii treats, Italian staples, and so much more within two miles. And if you wish to get adventurous with Indian cuisine, there's one right in the resort grounds.
Menehune Shores condo rentals are adjacent to the historic Kalepolepo Beach where many kiteboarders, windsurfers and paddle boarders launch from. The reef-protected surf offers calm waters and safe swimming even for young children. The beach out front also makes sandy strolls an effortless and inviting activity.
A few meters from the property sits the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary Visitor Center where humpback whales can be viewed from their observation deck. If you'd like to get closer, join a whale-watching tour departing Maalaea Harbor where other trips also cast off: diving, snorkeling and fishing. Cruises to the Molokini Crater also depart from the harbor.
If the beach right by the lawn edge of Menehune Shores condominium leaves you wanting more, Sugar Beach beckons from less than two miles away. A bit farther north of the beach is the native habitat of the ae'o or Hawaiian stilt and the alae ke'oke'o or Hawaiian coot. But feathered residents and visitors are not the only ones that flock to the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge. Many come here for its wheelchair accessible boardwalk that takes keen naturalists to other parts of the refuge that otherwise would be a challenge to get to.
Novice surfers need not look far as Cove Park, less than three miles away, is renowned as one of the most ideal training grounds for beginners. Several golf courses can also be found nearby, with the closest less than two miles from the resort.
When in South Kihei, the Kamaole trio of beaches is hard to overlook. The first two, Kamaole I and II, are crescent-shaped white sand beaches ideal for swimming. The rocky tips of both offer modest snorkeling opportunities. Kamaole III is rougher on the edges but hums with a homegrown vibe, so it's a fantastic place to hang out if you wish to gain insight into the local scene.
Farther down the coast, the beaches of Wailea attract their own share of crowd, and deservedly so. The beaches here take on a more exotic look, the kind that attracted many visitors to come here in the first place.
If the beaches are what you came for, you surely won't be disappointed. But scratch the surface a bit deeper, and there's more to discover than a small island surrounded by teeming ocean. If you wonder which vacation rentals available in Maui would make the best launching pad for Hawaii adventures to come, look no further than beachfront condos at Menehune Shores. Talk to us today and let us help you work out the details. You'll be glad you did.

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