You simply can't get much closer to South Maui's popular beaches then when you book a Maui vacation rental at the oceanfront Royal Mauian resort. Sprawling just a few steps away from the water's edge with Kamaole I a stone's throw from its lush and landscaped grounds, Royal Mauian also puts you within short walking distance of South Kihei's bustling dining and shopping scene. World-class golf courses await at Wailea a few miles down the coast while Kahului Airport is less than half an hour's drive from the resort.
Featuring 1 to 3 bedroom Maui vacation rental condos sleeping up to 8 guests, Royal Mauian rentals offer expansive views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean right from your private lanai, allowing you to take in stunning sunsets and the sight of breaching whales when they come to visit in winter. Some condominium units are close enough to the water to let you spy on marine life. Pull the curtains back and you may even enjoy the same views from the comfort of your living room. The offshore islands of Kaho'olawe, Lanai, and Molokini crater are also visible from some choice spots, including views of the West Maui mountains and Haleakala. To take in this gorgeous panorama, take the elevator to the rooftop BBQ and garden area, and drink in the commanding views.
Step inside one of Royal Mauian oceanfront vacation rentals and cast off your cares as you set your clock and mood to island time. Slide the glass doors open and let in the fresh ocean breeze, or put the air-conditioning in the living room area to work. Plush and inviting upholstery make staying in equally comfortable as you enjoy in-unit entertainment with a flat-screen TV and wireless internet. Stay in the loop with family and friends back home using the unit's telephone service.
If you like to prepare meals from scratch, stock up on produce and cook up your favorites in the full kitchen with full-size appliances and crockery. The granite countertops make food preparation irresistible, and the complement of smaller kitchen appliances allow you to make your own beverage of choice to be enjoyed in your private lanai or outdoors. And if you're tempted to over-pack, you might want to take advantage of washers and dryers installed in most units.
Royal Mauian's vacation rentals have an open floor plan where naturally and brightly lit living room areas organically transition into the dining area and finally into the kitchen. The color palette is mostly pastel, white and warm hues like cream and beige accented by island-themed décor and ornaments. In most units, the master bedroom overlooks the water so you can open the windows at night and let the gently crashing waves lull you to sleep. Master bedrooms also have their own entrance to the private lanai so you can breathe in a lungful of ocean breeze upon waking up and contemplate on the swaying coconut trees. Pull the curtains aside and let the master bedroom's glass windows and doors reveal the beauty outside.
Discover Maui from Oceanfront Royal Mauian Rentals
Start your day fresh with a dip in the oceanfront swimming pool, or bring a favorite read as you kick back in the lounge and soak up the sun. Emerge from the pool refreshed and looking forward to a spirited stroll on the adjacent Kamaole I beach. If you prefer to submerge in salty water, bring goggles and spy on the turtles and the occasional octopus on the rocky shore in front of the building. Or venture into the middle sandy portion of 'Kam One' for safe swimming with the kids.
Kamaole I is a perfect spot to watch for whales when they flock Maui's warm waters starting in November. With an oceanfront private lanai at Royal Mauian, you just have to lean back with a drink in hand in your private lanai and scope out the waters for the whales and their amusing antics. Even better, gather family and friends and make a day out of it while you grill 'ahi' on the rooftop BBQ area and sit down to a meal in the sunshine surrounded by stunning views.
Venture out of the resort and into South Kihei neighborhoods for a choice of dining options. American comfort food, Hawaiian staples, and fresh seafood can all be found within a mile of Royal Mauian condos for rent or just across the road. If you want to sample upmarket offerings, look south to Wailea for fine dining options with an exclusive atmosphere to match. Wailea is renowned not only for its gorgeous beaches but also for its world-class tennis facilities and golf courses.
At the other end of the rocky outcropping where Royal Mauian Kihei stands lies the equally inviting Kamaole Beach II, similar in features to Kam One but more compact. Swimming and snorkeling are popular here too. A bit further down the coast where most locals come together on weekends beckons Kamaole Beach III with its rockier shore and choppier waters ideal for squatter boogie boards. Kamaole III certainly has its share of crowds so it's a worthwhile destination for people-watching and for getting to know more of the local scene.
On the coast, South Kihei slowly gives way to Wailea via Keawakapu Beach were few people frequent. Divers, though, are attracted to the offshore artificial reef made of junk cars, tires, and concrete slabs. The ocean bottom here is sandy, making for a perfect swim; go in the mornings before strong winds ruffle the sand and water.
From Royal Mauian Resort looking north, the Cove Beach Park attracts its fair share of novice surfers for its gentle swells, rich underwater life, and surf lessons, and equipment rentals offered just adjacent to the park. Rent a longboard and you will be standing up on it out in the water in no time.
So when you're looking for a place you can call home in South Maui, and a base where you can flex your adventurous muscles by day and a welcoming cocoon to get a relaxing sleep, look no further than Royal Mauian Hotel. The oceanfront location, the teeming South Kihei neighborhood, and the proximity to the upscale environment of Wailea all make it a convenient resort that lets you socialize when you want to, or retreat to the peace and quiet of the astounding ocean views.
