Our time on Maui was phenomenal, and staying at Jay and Brianne’s condo was the icing on the cake! From the moment we walked in, it felt like our home away from home. All the amenities, comfortable furniture and touches that made us feel welcome. We wanted for nothing, as the kitchen was fully stocked, beach toys and needs were all there, and the comfort and cleanliness of the unit were superb. Hard to leave this gorgeous island, but I know we’ll be back and we won’t look any further than Kihei Alii Kai.

This condo is our first choice every time we visit Maui. The owners and the best and the condo is perfect and so very easy to access from the parking lot. You will find everything you need for a short or long stay. The condo is always clean and there are plenty of chairs, buggy boards and everything you and your family will need for a wonderful stay in paradise!

Highly recommend this comfortable condo in a great Kihei location. We could walk to the beach, shops and lots of restaurants. Brianne was a terrific host. We had everything we needed and she provided lots of helpful information.

What a lovely gem located in a great area in Kihei. Walking distance to almost everything you need. Plus, the suite was lovely and had everything you need to have a great holiday!!
Date of Stay: Jan 2017
Our family just spent seven fun filled days at Brianne’s condo. Lots of great memories of our stay.
It is a quiet location with easy access to the parking lot and close walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The unit is comfortable, tastefully decorated and well stocked with all the equipment needed for fun at the beach. This unit as well as all the common areas were clean and well maintained. It’s like a second home. Looking forward to returning in June.

We picked this condo because it seemed to have everything we needed for our small family reunion. My husband does not like sleeping warm so the AC in the bedroom was perfect. Even though the rest of the condo did not have it the trade winds kept the place cool enough even for him. It had everything you needed and the bedrooms were perfect. Very well appointed. Would definitely stay again.
Date of Stay: Apr 2016
Our family spent 14 glorious days in your condo. We have stayed at Kihei Ali Kai previously a few times and would rate your condo as our favourite. It is ideally located in complex, showed pride of ownership throughout and met all our expectations. Brianne you were a pleasure to deal with and hope we can do it again. Mahalo

We would certainly recommend Brianne’s condo. From the first inquiry to the refund of the damage deposit after checkout, Brianne was efficient and prompt. We came with another couple to attend a wedding in April 2016. The condo afforded each couple sufficient privacy. The unit is quiet and so well supplied with all you need to make meals, relax in the evening, and to enjoy fun at the beach. We appreciated the beach chairs, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear and used them every day. The BBQ is also very handy and easy to take advantage of. Kamaole Beach 1 is just a short walk down the road! Would definitely stay again! Mahalo Brianne

My family had a wonderful time in this condo. It was very clean and well stocked. The condo was spacious and comfortable. The location was excellent and the property was very well kept. Loved the beach chairs and coolers. The close beach was magical at sunset. Brianne was so kind to have a late check out as we had a late flight. She responded in a timely matter with any questions and I got my deposit back within a week. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Mahalo

Home away from home is the best way to describe this place. We have used VRBO many times and in many states. It looks exactly as it is portrayed in the pictured. Everything was there. When we did have an issue, we contacted Brianne directly and the situation was fixed right away. Simple things like having local restaraunt pamphlets already there in the welcome book was fabulous, Tupperware for packing lunch for the beach etc. Honestly I could go on and on. It was great and relaxing. Location was great.

We spent a memorable 5 nights in Maui with our 2 school-aged children. Second time to Maui for us, first for the kids. The condo was so spacious. The condo was quiet at night and the beds very comfy. Loved having 2 bathrooms! It was so nice to have the gear to take to the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed to store and cook our Costco food. Loved having a natural foods grocery store so close by, plus lots of “take – out” options, all meeting my gluten free needs. Found that South Kehei was much nicer than the town center. A short drive to many other beaches, and not far at all from the airport. Brianne was clear and professional from the very beginning. We really enjoyed our time here. Thanks!
Date of Stay: Dec 2015
Took my family to Maui for a vacation and was looking for something in South Maui. We take a trip to the area each year and always look to rent a condo for the extra space a hotel does not offer. This condo was one of the nicer rentals we have had. Well stocked with what you need and just a short walk to the beach. Since we had two teenagers with us having two bathrooms was a plus. Living room was very comfortable with plenty of room to spread out. Owner was very responsive and got back to us on any questions we had during our trip. Kitchen was well stocked with what you need, internet worked and nice big screen TV. Good option for a family looking to be close to beach with a lot of stores and restaurants just a short walk down the hill.
Date of Stay: May 2015
This condo was perfect for my wife and I and two small children. The condo was large, clean, quiet, and had all the amenities you could want, including a wide assortment of beach gear (chairs, coolers, snorkeling equipment, etc.). Really enjoyed the large balconies off the living room and master bedroom. Parking was a breeze as it was a short walk down the hall to the parking lot. Condo is centrally located on the island with quick access to most of the major tourist sites. Best of all one of the nicest beaches on the island was just down the end of the street.
Date of Stay: July 2015
Had a wonderfully relaxed vacation at this condo. The unit was very clean , organized and conveniently located just off the upper parking lot. What we found exceptional was how quiet the condo was and how cool it was. There are ceiling fans and an A/C in the master bedroom but even with the high humidity we had no need to turn on the A/C , just by opening the lanai door and front screen security door the unit stayed very cool. The owners were wonderfully accommodating and very helpful in answering all our questions. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable. It was also nice to have beach towels, beach chairs , beach toys and boogie boards and they even had cards and games as well as DVD’S and even a set of binoculars!!! Pretty much thought of it all. The living room furniture was incredibly comfortable as well.
This is the perfect setup for someone adverse to walking upstairs as it is on the second floor yet a level entrance from the parking area. We will definitely be recommending this unit to all our friends and family and look forward to going back in the near future.
Date of Stay: June 2015
The condo was everything we could have wanted. It was very well equipped and in a great location. Very nice balconies on which to relax off the living room and master bedroom. Really liked the fact that we were located so close to the parking area (no steps). Many shops and restaurants within walking distance. Only about 10 miles from the airport via a main highway. The beach was just down across the street from the condo complex entrance. A great place from which to enjoy and explore Maui.
Date of Stay: May 2015
We came back in May 2015 for our second year of using Brianne’s condo. The unit is across the street from the beach and there is a large pool on site. Close to stores and restaurants. We used the BBQ’s almost daily. The complex is first class and the unit is clean, large, modern, with a big balcony and all the amenities that you need.
We plan on a return visit next year. Thanks, Brianne.
Date of Stay: May 2015
Excellent accommodation, clean, roomy, balcony with view. Kitchen with stove, fridge and dishwasher, well outfitted with pots, pans, utensils etc.. Has a washer and dryer in the hall. Nice family room with large TV and comfortable seating. One block from the beach. If you aren’t one for the beach there is a pool, well maintained complete with a barbecue area. There are tennis courts upstairs and another barbecue area. Overall a tidy, quiet complex with everything you need.
Date of Stay: May 2015
I just returned from my second stay at this condo and the accommodations are perfect. A very clean, comfortable and fully equipped unit that really makes you feel at home. The common areas are also clean and well maintained.
The pool and hot tub were great. This location is quiet and central with just a short stroll to restaurants, shopping and beautiful beaches. The view from the lanai is gorgeous and those evening sunsets are magical. You could not ask for a better condo experience. Can’t wait to return next year!
Date of Stay: Jan 2015
We have always stayed in five star hotels and wondered about “going condo”. We were so pleased with this place, we will make it an annual trip, whenever this condo is available. The location could not be more convenient, we walked everywhere yet it is so tucked back off the main road there is no traffic or crowd noise whatsoever. And yet, it was an easy stroll to the beach, shopping or a variety of restaurants. The large lanai and bedroom balcony were both amazing? The condo itself is immaculate and very tastefully decorated. We could not have asked for better and would definitely recommend it.
Date of Stay: Jan 2015
What an exceptional vacation spot! While the beach was a quick 4-5min walk from the condo, we equally enjoyed lounging on the balcony to admire the beautiful view from the comfort of our “home away from home”. The cleanliness and warmth of the condo exceeded our expectations, which made for a very comfortable 14 day stay. We took full advantage of the great amenities, especially the pool. We are looking forward to returning next year!
Date of Stay: Oct 2014
Beautiful, clean, perfect location, short walk to beaches, breath taking sunsets and great restaurants. Truly a “Hale” away from Home. Just bring your swim suit and hat as everything else has been thought off for you.
Bonuses : easy to find after a long flight, affordable, extremely clean and well maintained.
We are return guests and can’t wait for our future stays.
Enjoyed happy hour on the large lanai……………………..
Date of Stay: Oct 2014
I have stayed at other properties in Kihei about 10 times; and this was by far the cleanest, well equipped one I have ever stayed at. All the beach toys and chairs, etc. you could ask for just waiting to be taken down the street to the beach. This would be an excellent place for Seniors as there are no stairs from the parking lot to the unit. The kitchen had everything you would ever need, and spotless ! I can’t wait to go back. The best location in Kihei!
Date of Stay: July 2014
This is an unusually well-equipped condo within a five-minute walk of the beach. Everything you need for the beach is here–beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear. The complex is large but we found it to be very quiet at night (we never heard the neighbors). If you’re staying in Kihei, definitely consider this place.
Date of Stay: Jan 2014
We were so impressed with this condo from the moment we arrived, certainly has everything you need while enjoying this part of the island. Comfortable, clean and wonderful location, handy to restaurants and shopping and beaches. The complex is lovely with a large pool deck and great hot tub. The condo is located close to parking and the Bar BQ area. The owners are very easy to work with and genuinely interested in making your stay the best it can be!
Date of Stay: Sep 2013
Where do I start? Since everyone says the most important attribute to property is location, location, location, let me say this is an awesome spot! I’ve been to Maui 4 or 5 times and I’ve always stayed in Kihei. Better weather than the rest of the island and great beaches, it’s the place to stay. This condo is a hop, skip and a jump from the water, shops and restaurants. The walk up and down South Kihei road is beautiful. The sunsets are directly ahead over the ocean.
We went to Maui with friends. One of our friends has ALS and used a cane and wheelchair. She was very happy with this condo as there are no stairs to get to it, and it’s the closest condo from the parking lot. Anyone that’s been to Maui knows it can be quite a trekk to get from the car to the condo. Not this one. GREAT SPOT! Speaking of great spots…how about the the BBQs! They are almost directly up one flight of stairs where the tennis courts are as well. The elevator is right there as well which worked great for us.
The lanai was very nice as the sun doesn’t hit you (so the condo stays cool – we rarely used any air conditioning as the fans were great). The pool and hot tub were a small walk away. The condo was clean, however, there was a small ant problem. This isn’t uncommon for Maui. They are tiny little ants. Apparently the condo complex is sprayed often to take care of these ants. They were spraying it shortly after we departed. As long as you remember to put everything in the fridge and in tupperware containers there’s nothing to worry about. They are only focused on food and the kitchen.
Safe to say that WHEN we go back to Maui we’ll plan our holiday around the availability of this condo. I won’t stay anywhere else!
Date of Stay: Oct 2013
We are mom dad little one and grandpa who stayed in this unit for 10 days in October, travelling to Maui for second time. This vrbo is a surprisingly great find. We arrived late but found the condo easily. Self check-in no problem. Lots of parking available. The condo is the closest unit to the upper parking lot and there are no stairs or elevators for kids and seniors to deal with. We went to the beach daily so having a foot rinse right outside the condo was handy. In this tropical climate you are encouraged to take the garbage out daily to avoid unwanted pests (there are none in the unit), and the dumpster was easy access. The garbage truck does show up twice a day but this turns out to be daily entertainment for my little one.
There is a huge chest on the lanai with lots of goodies for the beach, we used the umbrellas and snorkels and fins. The lanai is huge and we ate outside and enjoyed the peek-a-boo sunset from Kam 1 beach. I met some friendly neighbors while using the BBQ, it’s one flight of stairs up directly above the unit, there is another BBQ by the pool, which is another short hop away. The pool is clean and shaded in the afternoon.
King bed in the master bedroom was comfy soft, it has A/C which was a welcome relief after a hot day out. The AC generates a nice hum so light sleepers beware, it worked perfectly as white noise for my baby sleeping. The building is concrete so it’s very quiet between rooms. In the kitchen we used the dishwasher oven toaster coffee maker and rice cooker. The flat screen TV has cable programming and accepts hdmi input so bring your own movies.
Location is perfect like others mentioned, it’s far enough up South Kihei road so no traffic noise. Food-wise check out Da Kitchen Express for Hawaiian fare, S and Q coffee and shaved ice, both in Rainbow Mall, Cinnamon Roll Fair next door with insane sugary indulgence, the Kinaole Grill Food truck just by foot of Alanui Ke Ali’i, the Hawaiian Moon organic grocery store, gelato, tacos, korean bbq. All these WITHIN 5 minutes walk! Driving, you can get to every lovely beach in South Kihei and Wailea from here, furthest south was Big Beach which still took us only 20min driving. Stop by the roadside BBQ stand selling huli huli chicken across from Kam 3 on weekends.
Brianne the owner was very easy and pleasant to work with. She gave clear and accurate instructions, suggested many activities and entertainment and returned my deposit promptly. Mahalo!

We were extremely happy that we chose to stay here.
While in Hawaii we visited 3 of the islands and stayed at 4 different places and my family and I all agreed that this was the best place we stayed. The unit definitely showed pride of ownership and everything was new, clean and neat.The kitchen was nicely stocked and there wasn’t anything we needed that we didn’t find. For the beach…. umbrellas,chairs,boogie boards, snorkel gear, toys…again,everything you need. My kids loved the movies and books. I think this unit offers the best location within the complex as it is so easy to get to and from the parking which might not seem too important but let me tell you that after a long day exploring the island the last thing you want to do is drag all of your gear to the furthest unit.The entire complex was superbly maintained and we certainly took advantage of the sauna, pool, hot tub and BBQ areas.
We highly recommend this condo to everyone and would like to say thank you to the owners for providing us with an excellent place to stay that lacked nothing.
Date of Stay: May 2013
I had expected the accommodations to be good, but was pleasantly surprised to find them to be great. The location is perfect as it is right off the beach and has easy access to Wialia, less than an hours walk or a brief drive up the road. The shops were right at our doorstep. We were able to rent extra snorkel gear and a kayak, just a few minutes from our condo.
The accommodations themselves were everything we could of hoped for. It had all the cooking necessities one would need. Also available for the guests are beach chairs, free wi-fi and two telephones. It was also a quiet location and found the unit to be as clean as our own home.
We are now planning a return trip and hope to stay in the same unit. I would not hesitate to refer this property to our friends and family.
Date of Stay: Apr 2013
We could not have been happier with the accommodations. Everything was clean, new and it felt like home. the place was so well equipped with everything you needed for you stay, especially for the beach! Having beach toys and am umbrella were such an amazing plus! the pool was super clean, with a great BBQ area. I would recommend staying here to anyone. We will definitely be back to stay!
Date of Stay: Apr 2013
We had the pleasure of being the first guests to stay in this new VRBO listing and it was amazing! The location was ideal, just far enough from the main road so be very quiet but close enough to see the ocean from the lanai. Another thing that we did not think of but turned out to be a great asset was the fact that the front door was very close to the parking so loading and unloading gear was a snap! The condo was immaculately clean and was exactly as described. It was updated throughout and the linens and towels were new and upscale. There is a washer and dryer and every sort of beach gear that you could possibly want. The kitchen is fully stocked right down to the drawer of chip clips! The furniture including the beds were all new and very comfortable. The décor was very inviting and my guys loved the big screen TV to check on the Angel games and the Masters scores!
The location of this condo is perfect as absolutely everything is just a short walk. it is right across the street from Kihei’s loveliest beach and some of the best food and shopping available. I love to walk in the mornings and I was able to walk a half hour in either direction on good sidewalks with terrific views! This is truly my time in paradise.
Best of all however was the wonderful and easy relationship with the owners. They are a jewel to work with and we thank them for a wonderful stay in their family condo. We will definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Kihei. and we will absolutely stay here on all of our trips to Kihei, which just happens to be our very favorite Hawaiian location.
WE LOVED IT!!!!!
