About Elaine or Don
I was raised in Oregon and made my first trip to the islands in 1967. I immediately fell in love with Maui and after many more trips knew I would one day have a 'second home' on Maui, which happened on one of my trips in 1999! My husband and I were married on the beach in front of Mama's Fish House in 2005 and come over every year to enjoy and update our condo. I manage all bookings personally and love talking to my future and especially returning guests. We have made many friends over the years and they 'welcome us home' each time we arrive. They are truly our 'second family'.
Elaine or Don purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Elaine or Don chose Kihei
I was visiting with friends in 1999 when I started looking for condos and fell in love with C-307 at Kihei Alii Kai. While boarding the airplane to come home, I received a call that the owners accepted my offer and I was going to own 'my condo in paradise'. I have traveled to many places and the people in Hawaii are by far the warmest, most friendly, loving, people I know. We make new friends on every trip.
What makes this Condo unique
We love sitting on the lanai, it is very large, nicely furnished and so quiet and peaceful with a lovely view. Since the BBQ is on the same level and steps from the condo, you can enjoy dinner on the Lanai even thought there are many wonderful restaurants close by. KAM I beach is just a very short walk, about 150 feet from the condo and so beautiful for walking, snorkeling, swimming, and sun bathing. In the evening we enjoy watching the Sunset and then going to the Jacuzzi and meeting new friends. There is also the Maui bus you can hop a ride on or check on the many activities that Kihei has to offer.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Very nice condo
The. Condo was nice, well located in the heart of kihei, no a/c but we didnt need it. Great place to hit all activities on the island.I would rent this place again.
The bedroom headboard is next to a window that is on a walkway that many people use since this unit is close to the elevator. Their voices are very loud in the bedroom even when these people talk normally. Parents calling after their kids is worst. And of course there is little privacy.
This host is terrible at communications. It took several e-mails and two phone calls on the 2 days before our arrival to finally get the lock box number. Her 4-page contract (which you have to sign) says she will send that information 2-weeks before arrival. She did not do that.
She also charges the credit card fees so be sure to add that $35 to you total cost.
There are many good places to stay in this area of Kihei. We will not be coming back to this place.
Bob I am sorry you did no enjoy your stay in our condo. When you informed me your wife was in a wheelchair I told you there was an elevator right from the parking lot to my condo and we do have a 10PM quiet time.
When we spoke I let you know I would be taking whatever fees Homeaway charged me, for using VISA, out of your deposit., which was for you $35. This is also stated in my contract that I ask all guests to sign.
I did goof and didn't send you the lockbox code 2 weeks before and apologized for that mistake.
Good idea to try a different complex for your next stay.
Cozy, nice and quiet place
The condo is beautifully designed, well kept and conveniently located at the walking distance from a nice beach, shops, restaurants, coffee shops, a whole foods store with a good non-expensive cold and hot buffet. You can find in the condo everything you need and much more. We had a very pleasant stay there.
First visit to Maui, very impressed with our condo and endless amenities! Would love to return!
Great condo for 2, 4 could work but it would be cozy.
Lovely condo, great pool and so close to the beach, shopping and dining.
Robin and Mike,
Thank you for your response and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

Wonderful stay in Kihei
We love Kihei and visit at least every other year! We were very happy with our stay at Don and Elaine's place! It was perfectly located to all of our favorite places! It had all the amenities that we needed - including beach chairs and an umbrella (things we normally would need to rent). The accommodations were great, and the kitchen was spacious. We were careful not to use the air-conditioning much (since we knew it was expensive), but that made it rather warm at times. We would definitely recommend this place!
Toni and Brett it was our pleasure to have you as guests in our condo and we hope you will be back next year. I am happy you found that we still had many "beach toys" there for your use and pleasure.
Thank you for choosing our condo.
Elaine and Don
Kihei is located in the chosen area of fine restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, evening entertainment, plus 150 feet from one of the “top rated worlds finest white sand beaches in Hawaii”. A 10 minute drive South takes you to Wailea where there are “world class” shops such as Tommy Bahamas, restaurants include Cheeseburger in Paradise, Ruth Criss Steak House, one of our favorites for entertainment is Mulligan's on the Blue, and many art galleries with original Artists on site. Continuing on are fabulous snorkeling, ocean kayaking and mega beaches to die for. The 'crowded resorts' of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua are a 45 minute drive North or there is a metro bus that will take you there. The Majestic Haleakala is a 2 hour drive or you can stop in the quaint little town of Paia on your way to Hana, where there are black sand beaches, water caves, bamboo forests, numerous waterfalls, all ending at the 7 Sacred Pools where you can take a dip before starting your trek back to the condo. So much to do, so little time
