Say Aloha to this beautiful, oceanfront property and charming 2nd floor studio perched on a bluff overlooking Charley Young Beach.
With the most fantastic ocean views all throughout the apartment, this Classic Beachfront Studio is down-to-earth and elegant in it’s simplicity. It is relaxed and well appointed with an heirloom-style dining table and 2 chairs, the livingroom/bedroom area has a beautiful couch & end tables and a comfortable Queen sized bed with an ensemble of crisp Hotel Collection linens. The screen doors open up onto a sunny lanai with a backyard garden view and just beyond that, view of the sandy beach and gentle surf. A fully separate unit, it has it’s own private entrance in back of the main house, a fully-equipped kitchen and a private bath with fluffy bath and beach towels. The apartment now has a brand new air conditioning system to keep you cool and comfortable but it's also very pleasant if you want to turn it off, open all the windows to let in the tropical trade winds, scent of the ocean and sound of the waves. Amenities include WIFI and a flat screen T.V., 2 beach chairs and umbrella.
Perfectly accommodates 2 guests.
A spacious grassy oceanfront area in front of the main house with a hammock hanging in-between the coconut trees is all yours to use during your stay with us. You'll be able to spot sea turtles swimming all year round and Humpback Whales in the winter season. The sunsets here are eventful, every evening the sun goes down with a spectacular show of color.
The Original Charley Young Beach House
The property has been in the family for generations and is situated at the entrance to one of the best beach parks on Maui, Charley Young Beach, which is named after my husbands grandfather, Charley Young, who came to Hawai'i in 1932 as a military reporter to cover the infamous Massie Trial. Settling on Maui, he purchased this oceanfront parcel and built a house for himself and his wife, Betty, and became a well known public figure and reporter for the Maui News and Honolulu Star-Bulletin in the 1940’s and 50’s. The house still stands today, relatively unchanged with all of it’s ‘Old Hawai’i’ charm, telling generations of family history.
Charley Young Beach Park is surrounded by an old neighborhood with a mixed demographic and has a very local feel, the antithesis of a fancy resort establishment. The entrance to the beach park is located on Kai’au Place in Kihei, the Hawaiian word Kai’au translates in English, “swimming sea” or “a nice place to swim”. This beach is well known for it's gentle surf and perfect for swimming, snorkeling, stand up paddle, fishing, and there's miles of sandy beach to walk in either direction. If beach activity is what you are after, the location just doesn’t get any better than this, vacationing on the southern coast of Maui, you’ll feel removed from the ordinary and yet have complete access to the center of bustling Kihei town. Most everything is a very short car ride or within walking distance to the beach house- grocery stores, farmers markets, coffee shops, cafes, restaurants and fine dining, shopping, entertainment, and all the accoutrements you can think of to keep happy and comfortable during your stay.

Other Things To Note
Remember that Hawaii is located in the sub tropics where plants, birds and insects are all a part of a thriving natural environment. Please be assured that we go through great lengths to clean and keep the studio bug free. Still, you may see an occasional critter. If you stay with us, you can help by emptying your trash everyday and not leaving any food out.
E Komo Mai! Welcome! It is our hope that our guests will also share appreciation for the studio's simple charm and the incredible uniqueness of the property in it's magnificent, natural, beachfront surroundings.
