The Maui Sunset-Maui Condo and Home Kihei is an oceanfront resort in South Maui that offers leisurely beach walks, impeccably manicured gardens and access to water sports. Each of the 200 condos has a full kitchen, two bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, washer and dryer, and cable TV. They also feature private "lanais," or balconies, with views of the gardens and full or partial views of the ocean.
The property has a Jacuzzi, a pool that is heated in the winter, a putting green, and tennis and shuffleboard courts.
The staff at the activity desk can provide information about island tours and make luau and restaurant reservations.
The on-site fitness center has a sauna.
Rental equipment is available for many activities. Inquire about tennis rackets, golf putters, croquet mallets, stand-up paddleboards and boogie boards.
Hints and tips
With Maui Sunset-Maui Condo and Home Kihei located on the south coast, the swells and wind are particularly well-suited for kitesurfing and windsurfing. Some guests give these sports a try while others enjoy watching the more experienced athletes.
Farmers markets on Maui offer travelers an opportunity to try local produce. The Lipoa Street Farmers Market in Kihei is about a mile from the condos.
All the condos face west, so each unit's lanai provides a view of the sunset every evening.
Local neighborhood information
With the ocean close by, there's a seemingly endless array of activities, including snorkeling, surfing, kayaking and zip lining. Hana rainforest tours are popular among visitors, as are helicopter flights that circle the island. For an authentic taste of the islands within walking distance of the condos, try the shrimp at Coconut's Fish Cafe and a shaved ice at Peace Love Shave Ice.
Kihei is a beautiful setting for golf, and the Maui Nui Golf Club a popular course for visitors. The nearby Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary Visitor Center has information about the whales, frequently sighted from November to May.
