Kihei - Our Favourite Maui Place

My friend Pua from Best Hawaii Vacation Blog has written a great article about Kihei, and why it is a good place for a Maui vacation. has written a great article about Kihei, and why it is a good place for a Maui vacation. I couldn't agree with her reasons more!!! We own a condo in Kihei and spend 6 months of every year there so we can escape the winters of Canada. I would like to add one more thing to Pua's list and that is the Kihei Community Pool. Many people don't realize that the county of Maui offers free use of the community pools, and certain classes like water aerobics. For those who like to keep in shape on their vacation, water aerobics gives you fantastic exercise. The class is free but donations are welcome. See photo.
Here is some of what Pua has written and then you can follow the link to her blog to read the rest.
"Three Best Reasons why Kihei is a good place for Maui vacation
1. Kihei Maui has a beach for everyone

North Kihei offers great surfing beaches for wind- and kite surfers because of frequent wind activity. Wailea / Kahena area in South Kihei invites snorkelers and scuba-divers for some great ocean adventures. And all of the Kamaole Beaches, I, II, II together with Charlie Young Beach are 'displaying' Hawaii the way the Mainlander is dreaming of when he thinks of a Hawaii vacation: soft white sand beaches, blue skies and swaying palm trees.

2. Kihei has a condo for everybody + every budget

Naturally, when we searched for the, our, best place to stay in Kihei Maui, we cruised hundreds of websites and Kihei condo listings allowed for vacation rentals. Decision making was tough! You can choose from high end ocean front condos like Kauhale Makai, the more medium priced ocean view condos of Kihei Kai Nani or the more affordable vacation condos at Kihei Garden Estates, which we loved for its mellow Hawaiian ambience with its 2-story buildings in a tropical garden setting.

Be aware that you will always pay extra, double or triple, for ocean front or ocean view condos but again, there is a Kihei condo for everybody. Make sure that your Kihei vacation rental condo complex has a decent size pool for those days when the huge winter surf waves hit the Hawaiian Islands + Kihei during the winter months."
