Stay at Our Maui Banyan Condo in Kihei, Across
From Kamaole Beach II
Kihei is in South Maui, the
sunniest, driest section of the island. When it's raining at
Ka'anapali Beach and Lahaina in West Maui, it's probably a
wonderful beach day in Kihei.
Resort Amenities at
Kihei has restaurants for any budget, cafés, supermarkets, shops and easy access to one of Maui's few highways, so you're a short drive from the airport and popular tourist destinations. It has a casual ambiance and a relaxed pace.
This section of Kihei gets less wind than beach areas just a mile or two to the north, and if you're new to Hawaiian shores, it's smart to swim at the sandy Kamaole Beach II, where lifeguards sit on duty seven days a week.
Our condo is a mere two-minute walk to the
beach. In fact, at night or early morning, you can hear the waves
as you lie in bed. The condo complex as a whole is
attractive and peaceful. Right out the door of our unit is a
sizeable shaded, grassy area with a BBQ grill and picnic table that
feels quite private and is suitable for reading a book, playing
with the kids or hosting a family reunion.
"This place can't be beat for price and location. The beach is right across the street and we enjoyed perfect sunsets every evening, including one night where a group of 5 humpback whales were playing less than 100 yards offshore. We loved being in walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants and bars as well as being so close to great snorkeling. Kihei is so charming, and I'm very glad we chose this location over any other. Thanks for letting us stay in your condo, as we really enjoyed everything about our trip. " - Tyler, Kirkland WA, March 2011
Just three minutes up the road you'll find four restaurants - a Mexican place, steak/burgers, a bistro and deli. Within a 10-minute walk in a lively shopping plaza are eight more - Hawaiian (featured once on the Travel Channel!), Indian, Thai, natural food, pizza, tacos, steak/seafood and Denny's, which is open 24 hours. (Indeed, so convenient is the location that some of our guests have managed quite well without a rental car.) Luxurious spas and world-class golf are a short drive away, and there's even a three-times-a-week yoga class you can walk to.
