Reviewed by: Donna B. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 The view was fabulous! The condo was on the corner which had its pros and cons: pros - the back bedroom had more privacy because it was not open to the common outdoor walk-way (which all others were); cons - the traffic on the main road was very loud, and since there was no air condition, the windows had to be open.
Nice Place - No Air Conditioning - Lot's of Street Noise
Reviewed by: Bobby O. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2016 If you can sleep with regular traffic buzzing by throughout the night, then this is the place for you. I was surprised to find out that there was no air conditioning in the condo. It was somewhat muggy, even though we were close to the beach. Therefore, we had to sleep with all windows and sliding doors open which added to the the noise coming from the street in both bedrooms. Take ear plugs!Otherwise, the pictures are accurate, the view is mostly facing the palm trees and you have to look more towards your left to see the ocean. The place had beach chairs, snorkleling equipment, and coolers which made our experience going to Maui better.
Diego C. from Redwood City, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 The apartment is very nice and it has a splendid view. It is very well furnished. The beds are very comfortable, and the Internet works greatly. The 2nd bedroom was not perfectly clean (a little bit dusty).
Property Manager Response: Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. Thank you for your review. We completed a deep clean in this unit and will be happy to always send housekeeping back to the unit for any cleaning issues.
A guest from Tacoma, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2016 The condo was clean, but the pillows, linens and towels were all old and well used. The dryer in the unit didn't work well at all. Not all the table lamps worked, the fans were super noisy, etc. But, there was an issue with the door that was handled promptly. There were lots of beach things to borrow like coolers, chairs and mats. However, they were very skimpy on the supplies, leaving us only one trash bag?! The pool was small, not protected from the wind, had no shade and had a ton of rules. Not fun for the kids. The Indian restaurant was awesome with very friendly staff. But, the bar was forced to shut down by 9pm due to the HOA. Overall, the condo was just OK. Wouldn't rent it again. Would get something a little more updated in a better location.
Lucy L. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2016 room #401 was such a nice room, had all the extra amenities you need from a washer/dryer to baby floaties, to beach chairs. Located on the 4th floor at the end of the hall, the resort has shopping carts and luggage carts for more convients. The 2 bedroom 2 bath room is perfect for a large family, pool was clean and warm with easy access to the most kid friendly beach. Kehei is centrally located to what ever way you want to go on the island, which I loved. It was the easiest check in/out with friendly staff in the office. Can't say enough nice things about this place, menehune shores is my go to spot!
Sarah H. from St. Albert, AB does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2016 Although the condo did what it was suppose to do, I would not stay there again. It needs a huge refreshing. The lanai screen doors were sticky and one wouldn't lock. One screen was completely ripped as well. The doorknob to leave the unit kept falling off. The screen door to the condo entrance would not fully close either. A coded door lock would be a nice touch too so you don't have to carry the keys around. The carpets need to be majorly cleaned but preferably replaced. 2 of the 4 lanai chairs were essentially unusable as they would tip side to side. I'm sorry as I don't mean to sound so negative. The beds were very comfy and so was the couch. The kitchen was stocked well but it would be nice to have some room to put the food that we purchased somewhere instead of on the limited counter space. All in all, it did the trick but I wouldn't stay there again.
Joel S. from Chilliwack, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2016 A group of 3 couples stayed in this lovely 2 bed, 2 bath apartment. We felt that we had lots of room! It was very clean, well kept, and stocked with kitchen supplies. We had a great view of the ocean. The beach was close, but there were also a lot of other beaches within a close drive. A little North of the main strip provided some privacy, and kept the noise down. All in all a fantastic experience and would most definitely re-book in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. Mahalo for staying with us.
Wendy I. from Olympia, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2015 I went to Maui for a 9 days business trip. I didn't have much of an opportunity to enjoy beautiful Maui but instead spent lots of time working in the condo. The condo had everything we needed from kitchen appliances, dishes, extra bedding and beach accessories (beach towels, coolers, snorkel gear and beach chairs). It was very clean and well stocked. We prepared several meals in the condo and the kitchen had everything we needed. We had a little view of the ocean and pool from our lanai so even when we were working we could look up and enjoy the beautiful view.
Lovely Condo with sideways ocean viewbut bad road noise
A guest from Kirkland, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2015 The condo was lovely and beautifully renovated. The location was good except that #401 is right on the end by the road, and therefore lots of traffic noise, which made sitting on lanai impossible most of the time (i.e. evenings). Otherwise very well provisioned and decorated. Can walk right onto a beach and the pool is nice. Nice people in the building were very friendly. Just bad traffic noise. Would rent another unit farther from the road.
A guest from South Hamptom, NH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2015 This is our second time at Menehune Shores. We were disappointed in unit401, and would not go back again. The unit it noisy as it is close to the road. In order to keep the condo cool without an air conditioner. We kept the front and slider doors open. It was difficult to hear the tv early in the morning and at night. I would advise the owner to invest in an ax unit. The flora were dirty in the kitchen under the cabinets. I pulled a cutting board out from an area near the sink, and found a dead insect(cockroach?) stuck to it. I might advise that the owner have a cleaning company come in quickly before a new rental comes in. The bath towels were frayed. The second smaller bedroom needs up-dating. Something that really annoys me is mentioning in the guidelines that there are only 1 trash bags and rolls of toilet paper for use. Really? I spent $2000.00 for nine days. Please don't nickel and dime renters for such trivial things. There seems to be limited availability of rentals through Rentals Maui at Menehune Shores. I would most likely go to VRBO next time. We had a wonderful visit to Maui despite the problems that I mentioned!
Carol P. from Jackson, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 We had a great time in Maui,, the condo was very clean & comfortable. It was very nicely decorated & had all the comforts of home. Only negative is the location is close to the road & with all the windows open it was a little noisy
Property Manager Response: Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. We are so glad you enjoyed your time on Maui in this great condo.
Timothy C. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2015 Enjoyed our stay at Muehene Shores Unit 401. Have been to Maui four times but never stayed in Kihei area. While we love Kaanapali for the Hawaiian tourist buzz it provides, Kihei is the place for getting to awesome beaches, snorkelling, golfing, whale watch tours etc. Our condo was well equipped, clean, and comfortable and the nightly cross breeze cool things down nicely. Used the pool and the beach in front of the complex. Turtles were in the shallow pool a few of the days. I would agree that despite being at he end of the 4th floor nearest the road, road noise was noticeable but not bothersome. Only hiccup was the Kihei Marathon sounds checks at 5:30am in the adjacent park. Whatever. Island time :-)
Claire S. from Pleasanton, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 This rental was nice and comfortable but I think people need to be warned about the noise from works compound less than 15ft from it. Could not have breakfast on the balcony or spend any quiet time relaxing out there during the week due to the sound of grinding, cutting, drilling and heavy macinary. Sat and Sun only quiet time when the compound was shut for the weekend. The complex in itself was clean and well maintained. If you want to stay at this complex choose a rental on the other side of the building.
A guest from Saskatoon, SK recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in February, 2015 First time in Maui. This was a great location with good amenities (pool, bbqs). Easy to check in/ out with no surprises.
Property Manager Response: Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here and hope to see you again in the future.
jeff s. from Darien, CT does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2015 # 401 MENEHUNE SHORES HAS A PARTIAL OCEAN VIEW FROM THE LIVING ROOM WITH A BETTER VIEW FROM THE MASTER BR. THE PLACE IS NICELY DECORATED AND THE KITCHEN VERY WELL EQUIPPED WITH ANYTHING NEEDED. THE BIG PROBLEM IS THE TRAFFIC NOISE! THIS UNIT BACKS UP TO A VERY BUSY STREET. THE NOISE IS UNBEARABLE !!!!!!! I WOULD PAY MORE FOR A PLACE WITH A BETTER VIEW AND LESS NOISE.
Property Manager Response: Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. Thank you for your guest comments. We are very sorry that you had trouble with the road noise in the back bedroom. We are very happy that you loved the views from the condo as well as the decor and location.
Carol U. from Marble Falls, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2014 Absolutely delightful....had everything you could need or want and was very comfortable. Wonderful sunsets and sunrises can be watched from balcony. I would return here if I get a chance to return to the island!
James D. from Kihei, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 The unit was exactly as described.It is a beautiful oceanfront property.Responses, service and communication were excellent!A+++
A guest from Vail, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 We went to Maui for a wedding. Kiehi is a great place to stay. Everything is close by and the condo was beautiful; beach and pool were awesome and views incredible. Will definately be going back and staying at this condo!
A guest from Lake Oswego, OREGON does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2014 The unit was decorated well and was very well equipped. The partial ocean view was very nice - it is not as clear as pictures show. If you are sensitive to noise,the unit is closest to the main road in the complex. Since there is not air conditioning ,it is very loud especially when the windows are open to access the lovely breeze. Kathy at Rentals Maui was great. Half of our family went home early in part due to the road noise as it was constant.
Kristy I. from Colton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Location could not be any better! With an ocean view, access to the beach and rooftop overlooking a beautiful sunset, this place has it all. The only issue is ants as with the entire island. They make the stay a little stressful but if you clean the kitchen every time you use it they are nothing to worry about. I would return anytime visiting Maui.
A guest from Merced, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 Condo is very nice. A few updates are needed. Complaints: Beds are uncomfortable, unit is close to the street and can be loud especially with no AC in the unit and needing the window open at night, DVD player wouldn't play the movies we rented. Other than that we loved the pool and beach access (perfect for paddle board), Enjoyed Kihei location
Mike/Denise M. from Armstrong, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in February, 2014 It was a wonderful condo , well stocked in the kitchen for appliances,cookware and spices. We had a excellent time.
Danyelle W. from Palmer, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2014 Great condo, very clean had beach towels and chairs all the kitchen supplies you would need. Never heard any neighbors. Great location. Would love to stay there again
Paul S. from Outlook, Sasketchwan recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2014 Everything you could have needed was in this condo - a beautiful kitchen complete with all the gadgets; beach gear; picnic supplies and a beautiful view of the ocean.
Relax in scenic privacy....and enjoy long walks on the beach
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 This was the most relaxing, fun family trip ever. Unit #401 is like home away from home. An exceptionally well-stocked kitchen, very comfortly furnished, a private lanai to dine & view the ocean and gorgeous palms. Being an end unit, there is even greater privacy. Yes, there is road noise from the two-lane road and yet, it didn't bother us at all.
Juanita J. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 Menehune Shores was a great location. Not far from the heart of Kihei. The complex is older but it is very clean and well-kept. Our stay is #401 was nice. It was well equipted and was very clean. The linens were super fresh and smell great! It had everything we needed. Rentals Maui made "checking in" very easy. The only negative is that the twin beds are very small and not very comfortable. They are fine for children but not for adults. The beach are around the complex is rather rocky and very quiet. Greta to look at to relax but not really great for swim and play.
Paulette P. from Saskatoon, SK recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in February, 2013 Our accommodations were excellent. I would totally recommend this unit. It is a great location. The unit has everything you need and more.
A guest from Winnepeg, Manitoba recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in February, 2013 Liked the condo. Clean, well equipped and comfortable. Traffic noise was a more than we had hoped for, but otherwise very nice.
Dale M. from Campbell River, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2012 The back bedroom is close to the road, so you will experience road noise from early morning to early evening. The unit is also beside a park, and we experienced generator noise from running the fan for a childrens birthday party bounce-er-ama inflatable as well as loud music on 2 days of our 9 day stay.
Heather B. from Sherwood, Albe recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in March, 2012 We were very pleased with our condo rental. The unit had everything you could ask for. The kitchen was fully equiped and they had everything you would need for the beach. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The only negative thing I could say was that it was a little noisey. It is the closest unit to the road and I am a light sleeper, other than that, it was great. We would stay there again.
We were very pleased with our condo - great location
Joanne G. from Winnipeg, Manitoba recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2012 Our experience was very good, just a little problem with the TV/Satelite but a phone call brought someone out to help us. We did have trouble after that and would suggest better instructions for future renters.
Dayna M. from Anchorage, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2012 The unit itself was wonderful. It was comfortable and well appointed. The road noise was bad. We live in a very quiet neighborhood and this was a hard transition for us while on vacation. Also, the unit didn't get the direct sun until later in the evening. The resort is child friendly with the pool, a walking beach to one side and a smaller child beach on the other. We are staying at the resort again in Feb 2013 but on the ground floor and opposite side of the building that receives sunlight all day.
A guest from Punta Gorda, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 27 days in February, 2011 Would have given it a five star save for the street noise and limited view from the balcony. Loved the rooftop "patio" area and evening conch shell blowing at sunset. Unit had plenty of everything, but could have used a few more storage containers. Also not personally fond of the "bistro" dining table. Everyting else was great!
Paul R. from Ben Lomond, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 The stay in Maui was fantastic. We had a Wonderful stay in the condo. the place had everything we needed. I felt like I was staying in my own home. Five star all the way.....Great location and the grounds are top notch. WONDERFUL!!! Thanks You!!!!!!
Cheryl S. from Visalia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2010 This was a beautiful condo...exactly as pictured and described....great for families.....definatly need a car to get around though.....
