Tucked in a quiet setting and set back from the bustle of the main Kihei Road, Kalama Terrace is a short walk from the beach and offers partial ocean views to its guests. Located centrally in South Kihei between the popular surfing location of "The Cove" and the white sand beach of Kamaole I in South Maui, Kalama Terrace also puts you close to the upscale resort village of Wailea, and the airport in Kahului less than half an hour away by car.
If privacy is as important to you as being in the thick of action, Kalama Terrace in Kihei with 1 and 2 bedroom rental condos sleeping up to 6 guests makes an ideal base for your dream Hawaiian vacation getaway. Lush tropical landscaping greets you as you lean out of your private lanai, allowing you to soak up refreshing breezes and enjoy glimpses of the ocean while sipping a well-deserved beverage.
Step inside a spacious living room bathed in natural light and you’ll feel right at home in your Maui condo rental. If you are so inclined, you may turn on the A/C unit, or keep the glass doors open to let the ocean breeze circulate throughout the room. A flat screen television (and another TV in the bedroom in some units) and a DVD player provide entertainment as you sink into the amply cushioned sofas. You need not totally unplug while on vacation, with wireless internet allowing you to keep family and friends back home updated of your adventures.
Kalama Terrace condos include a full kitchen with ample cabinet storage and counter space to inspire cooking confidence and allow the opportunity to try new local flavors. Or you can simply warm up your favorite takeaway food from the nearby restaurant in Kihei if you really want an authentic culinary experience. Fire up the toaster and coffee pot if all you need is a quick bite in the morning. A few seating options are available when it's time to sit down for meals: either enjoy it around the big dining table indoors or the cozy lanai seating outside. Take advantage of the BBQ grills by the condominiums pool and savor the island's fresh seafood.

The Kalama Terrace condo villas for rent showcase an open layout and warm-color palette meaning that the living room, dining area and kitchen create one fluid living space that naturally spills out onto the lanai and the relaxed vibe of island life.

Swimmable beaches are just a stone's throw from Kalama Terrace in South Kihei so if you wish to dip into swimming form first, have a go at the on-site pool. The poolside lounges also offer an inviting space to soak up the sunshine as you read your favorite book or appreciate the greenery. You also don't have to leave the property for laundry as washing facilities are available in the grounds.
Should you wish to venture out of the condo rental for your grocery needs or to explore the local food scene, you're right in the heart of Kihei where a couple of markets and several restaurants, cafes and bars are all located in close proximity. Before heading for a night out, take a stroll to the nearby Kalama Park for gorgeous sunsets and a view of whales spouting in the distance as you look out towards Molokini.
In season, humpback whales flock to the waters in front of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary about five miles up the coast where you can learn more about them and see them breach from the viewing deck of the sanctuary. Adjacent to the sanctuary is an uncrowded beach with a shallow wading pool perfect for kids as it’s protected from the waves. This was once a royal fishing pond so the area overflows with historic significance.
Maui is a surfing hotspot in Hawaii, and most beginner surfers flock to Cove Beach Park just a few blocks away from these Kihei vacation condos due to the availability of several rental facilities and surf lessons offered in the area on top of the beach's friendly waves. Keep a sharp eye out when snorkeling, and you might even spot a turtle or two swimming in front of you.
If white sand beaches are one of the things you came to Maui for, you'll have your fill at the trio of Kamaole beaches down the coast, with Kamaole I being the closest to your vacation rental property. Kamaole I has a gentle slope and a generally even, sandy bottom, making it a family-friendly swimming beach in the morning when the waves are yet to appear. Being popular with tourists of all ages, "Kam One" may be crowded at times, making Kamaole II, similar in characteristics to the former, an appealing beach alternative. If you want beach action with plenty of local flavor and the amenities to go with it, the rough-around-the-edges Kamaole III is worth carving time for. One of the most reliable shore breaks in South Maui happens to occur here, making Kamaole III an ideal destination for boogie boarding.
