Condo 607: “This was such a wonderful, wonderful place to stay!!! The pictures do not do it justice! It's beautiful! We would stay here again! The owner made it so easy and nice for us!”
 
“The condo was very comfortable and clean. Boggie board, beach chairs etc were in the apartment . Very convenient. The pool area was clean and nice. Not crowded. There was bbq grills by the pool and on the roof. Very convenient if you want eat in the condo or by the pool. The only small thing which could be better is there wasn't AC in the condo, only fans. It was still OK to sleep and be indoor while 92F outside. Overall very good place to vacation and strongly recommend. The host was very nice and responded on messages very quickly. 5 stars from my family and I.”

Just want to preface that the only reason I am giving four instead of five stars is because the complex is on a not so nice beach. We stayed for five nights and on a few of the days the underground aquifers would spit out silt into the ocean, which turns the shore right outside brown (I hear this is because of the local sugar cane industry irrigation that may be ending soon.)

The apartment was in pretty good shape. The view is amazing, lovely sunsets each night. A couple of the screens had holes or wouldn't close properly. We had windows open the entire time and with the ceiling fans, the apartment stayed pretty cool. No major bug problems even with the imperfect screens. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook and the BBQs on the roof and by the pool were in excellent condition (we cooked dinner 3 of 5 nights.) The pool is nice for a swim. 

KH, the property manager, was excellent to work with, he got us what we needed super fast and was very responsive to any calls. The condo came with some old beach chairs and a beach umbrella, we used them often and they worked fine. Our flight landed early and because nobody was in the apartment the night before, we were able to check in early. We really appreciated this flexibility from KH. 

My favorite part of this apartment is that the master bedroom is on the ocean side and with the windows open it was like heaven going to sleep each night listening to the waves. No AC, but we were comfortable. There were two TVs, access to Netflix if you have a password. All in all a really great stay. Lots of restaurants a short drive down the road. 

In terms of the area, Kihei is a nice town with lots of strip malls. It's more "transplant-local" than Lahaina, which is super touristy. We would stay in Kihei again because it's central to the north shore, day trips to Lahaina, and up country.

Our family of four had a wonderful experience at Menehune Resort in Kihei! The views were spectacular - room was very clean and well maintained. Lots of mirrors which was interesting.. Our kids are 14 and 12 (boy and a girl). We all had enough space and the master had a accordion door to close for privacy. Our daughter caught a lizard - she was thrilled. We stayed for 7 nights and had breakfast and 3 dinners in our room. We used the grills downstairs for steaks. Played shuffle board, used the pool, walked on the beach and dined at the Indian restaurant as well. KH was wonderful and we loved the ability to wash our clothes! The lanai was fantastic and where we usually dined. Loved that they had books for us to choose from including the Maui Travel Book which we referenced often. 2 miles from the skate park for our son - he was in heaven! Strongly recommend and we hope to come back to visit unit #606!

I stayed 12 days in Unit 526 at Menehune Shores in Kihei in February 2016. These are condominium units, many owner occupied, that seem to be well managed. There were three of us in the unit, one solo with a queen size bed and two sharing a room with twin beds. Each had their own washroom. This Unit was very clean and nicely upgraded with granite counter tops, quality cupboards in the kitchen and ceramic tile floors. There was also a washer and dryer but it was located inside the main bedroom which was a bit inconvenient. The unit was well stocked with linens and other things but the kitchen could have used a few more dishes, a kettle and a new frying pan. There was a pleasant view of the ocean from the lanai.
The resort had a very nice pool and there was a walled off section of ocean which could be used for swimming, especially good for children. Unfortunately, the beach beside the resort was not really safe for swimming. There is a huge rooftop deck with picnic tables and barbecues. It had limited shade and a couple of evenings it was too windy to really enjoy it but our group ate lunch and dinner up there several times. Great for watching whales, turtles and the sunset. Don't miss the group of owners blowing their conch shells each evening.
I was there with a group and we had vans for transportation but if you are going on your own you probably need to rent a car to access nearby shopping areas and restaurants and explore the island. None of the several units rented by our group had air conditioning. There are ceiling fans and I had a stand-up fan beside my bed to cool it down and keep the air moving. We opened the screened-in windows to catch the night breezes as well. 
This building is shaped like a U with the points of the U right next to the road. We were one unit away from the road and up on the 5th floor. Because noise rises, the traffic noise started around 6 a.m. and continued till later in the evening. This is an extremely busy road. If you are an early riser and don't plan on spending much time in the unit this might not be a problem. We did find it very noisy when we sat out on the lanai. This must be a common issue for most of the resorts along the road as it runs parallel to the beach.
All in all, I think this is a pretty good place to stay but you have to do your research to determine where your unit is located and what condition it is in. I don't know how much it cost because it was part of a package deal but I know it was very reasonable.

 

The host was great! Te place we tried to book was under renovation so he took the time to call me and explain this and offered us an apartment of the same caliber and value. I was so impressed with that. When we got there we were shocked at the beauty of the view. It was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The apartment was clean, comfortable and in excellent condition! Great location too! I would highly recommend this place.

The apartment was exactly as described. It has a beautiful view over the ocean, some nice beaches on/next to the property, the place is quiet and clean and is centrally located. Only thing to note is that there are no grocery stores and only 1 restaurant within easy walking distance. But lots of good stores/restaurants within a 3 minute car ride. Really enjoyed having early morning coffee on the lanai overlooking the ocean.

Great location with a great view of the water. Beach just downstairs from the unit. Unit itself was clean and well-stocked with everything from beach and kitchen supplies. No AC but with the sea breeze we didn't notice. Convenient location in Kihei, not in the more heavily traffic area of S.Kihei but close enough to stores and other beaches. Overall a great experience and would stay again.
 
My husband and i had an amazing stay at this condo. The view is amazing and right on the water! We saw turtles from our balcony almost everyday! They have everything you need and its plenty of room for two people. The sunsets are amazing to watch from your room as well. No bugs and very clean. Its location to stores is a bit north but if you have a car or don't mind walking its no problem! We would definitely stay at this location again and recommend it to others. We met the owner as well and he was very nice. He gave us pointers about best beaches to visit.
 
Gorgeous ocean front views and a perfect place for the entire family. Spacious, clean and an overall comfortable experience. I would definitely love to come back. KH was fast and available when we requested a fan. Thank you very much.
 
Beautiful spot and visit. The apartment was in top shape. Great views, beach access right there, nice pool, and bbq's and areas around nice. Quiet area. Pool toys, extra linens, kitchen set up all great. Also the whale-watching museum in a neat old house is amazing, next property down. And Indian restaurant adjacent was great food and nice owners. We asked KH for one item snd she helped timely. Thanks! Great vacation.
 
Our condo was perfect, perfect set up, perfect location, perfect view. What can I say, we loved it! The grounds were immaculate, beautiful pool area & beach access steps away. Waking up each morning to the sounds of the ocean & watching the sun set in the evening was so relaxing. We will definitely return.
This was a great experience! The condo had everything we needed for a fun week in Maui; Boogie boards, plenty of towels, and everything we needed for cooking. The location was AMAZING. Right off of South Kihei Road, 5 minutes from everything. The view was exquisite, and the private, wave-less beach was perfect for our 2 year old. Never crowded, never loud, perfect accommodations. The only thing we wished we could've changed was having air conditioning, but you kind of know going to Hawaii that you're going to be hot. We would absolutely stay again. Thanks for a great vacation!
 
Great location. Ocean front view. Washer and Dryer. Everything is exactly same as in picture. Great experience.
 
Great location, awesome view, safe, easy parking, elevator and a wonderful value.

As it was our first time on ABB it was a new experience. Once we established communications it was great. Quick responses to all of our questions and concerns. When we got there we were met by the new manager and they were ensuring everything was ready to go! It is in a great location with all the ammenities needed in the condo and near by. Great balcony, AC works amazing, kitchen was more than we needed. Would stay again for sure. The location is pretty tough to beat. Right in the middle of lots of shops and restos with Kam 1 across the street, but far enough from the road that you don't hear any road noise. Probably one of the best units to be in for balcony size and privacy!

Experience was great! Easy contact and check in. Everything you would need at a beach was in the condo. Area was quiet and not too far from the shops and restaurants.

Wonderful accommodations, right on the beach, provided towels and beach chairs (these definitely came in handy!) and the lanai was great! There was plenty to do relatively nearby and it was easy accessing the apt per instructions. We would love to come back!

Thanks for time spent in your complex. We really enjoyed the unit and can't wait to spend more time there. The place is great and thanks for the extra time that you offered us to use unit 607.  The complex is beautiful and very clean.
Thanks. Ray and Fran Buchalski

Loved the view! Very clean and updated with many extras (cooler for lunch, mats for the beach, etc.) we enjoyed.

The view was to die for. The grounds were in excellent condition. Best vacation ever.

Unit 606 S.M.: September, 2014

My mother and I visited the island the week os 9/7/14 and stayed here in unit #606. It is renovated and up to date with some great features (lighting was nice and bathrooms and kitchen has been renovated beautifully). It has lots of mirrors which really opens the place up and you can see the sunset from sitting inside and even laying in your bed! Yes, the place dosen't have A/C (which had me quite concerned as I am from Georgia and no A/C is unheard of where I come from), but we were on the 6th floor and the winds just pour in the windows and cools quite well. I recall being hot the first night (sleeping in the bedroom not overlooking the beach) just beacue the place had been closed up and we went to bed soon after we arrived. I had no other issues after that night despite 90+ degree temps during the day all week. Get the sea breeze blowing through the place and all will be well. We even had to use blankets a few nights because it was "boarder line" chilly.
i can not give a suggestion on how to imporve this unit...the owners have thought of everything and have all accomdiations in order for you to enjoy. They even had beach supplies for you to use as well which was a bonus. The grounds were well kept at the property and the pool was clean. This is a great unit to stay in as it fits in very well with the Maui spirit and will have you feeling Aloha at the first sunset! We hope to return soon!

Unit had a view to die for. Described as recently renovated, would agree. Unit was fully stocked. For sure will return and recommend to friends/family.

Leslie: July, 2014

The location to the beach and the "lagoon" made this facility great for families with young children. The on-site BBQs were clean, and the pool and grounds were pristine.

Unit 611: 254dw September, 2014

We stayed in Unit 611 for 4 nights in September and found the complex and accommodation to be exactly as described to us. The views from our balcony were fabulous. We spent much of our time while at the condo on the balcony watching the activities on the Bay and enjoying the sunsets. There is a nice beach adjacent to the condo. Plenty of grills available near the pool and on the roof which I took advantage of! The kitchen was sufficiently stocked to accommodate dining in. The only negative was a lack of air conditioning which contributed to a few unpleasantries: warm bedroom and occasional Indian curry smells from the restaurant below. The cross ventilation was quite good but it was still too warm for us

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unit 605: Ray and Fran Buchalski: September, 2014

Thanks for time spent in your complex. We really enjoyed the unit and can't wait to spend more time there. The place is great and thanks for the extra time that you offered us to use unit 607.  The complex is beautiful and very clean.
Thanks.

 Enjoyed our stay in Maui, and LOVED our stay here at Menehune Shores. We will definitely be back to your condo! The staff was really nice, the rooms we had were beautiful and the location was great! A big thank you to K.H. for helping us out and letting us stay in an additional condo during our last day in Maui. Our flights left at different times and he let us hang out in a condo (used) so we could shower, etc..until it was time for us to head out. THANK YOU!!

Unit 606:  Joe and Mary Kahler: May, 2013

 

I wanted to express to you what a wonderful experience my family had staying at Menehuneres resort. We couldn't believe how breathtaking the views were from almost every part of the condo! I even noticed the view from the bathroom! The location of Menehuneres  was perfect. We were minutes from town to enjoy nice eating establishments and enjoy the feeling of the Hawaiian culture. But the best part was the unit had everything we needed from a short walk to the beach for boogie boarding, to swimming at the pool and even shuffle board from some fun competition with the family! We also enjoyed the barbeque facilities and soaked in a great sunset sitting on the rooftop barbequing steak and salmon. We were able to take advantage of many activities, kayaking, zip lining and surfing without being rushed with plenty of time in between to rest and just enjoy our unit and magnificent views. The time went quickly but it is a trip my family is still talking about today. Great location, great unit, great time!

I can't tell you how many people I have already recommended Menehune Shores to! The rooms were clean, the staff friendly, and the location can't be beat! It was quiet and comfortable. I had a chance to meet the neighbors because there was supposed to be a tsunami on sat. night and we all went up to the roof. What a pleasant surprise. I don't know if I will ever be back to Maui, but if I do, it will definitely be to Menehune Shores! Thank you so much!
