Say Aloha to this beautiful oceanfront property and charming 2nd floor studio perched on a bluff overlooking Charley Young Beach. An idyllic subtropical paradise for many but for some who prefer accommodations with a more modern twist, we ask that before you book, please read our listing description in its entirety so you can be sure that what we offer matches up with what will make you happy and comfortable during your stay on Maui.
We are direct oceanfront and situated in an old neighborhood with a mixed demographic and very local feel. The beach house has a rustic, weathered, vintage vibe truly remnant of "Old Hawaii". My husband and I live in the main house on the ground floor, the studio upstairs is a fully separate unit with it's own private entrance in back of the building.
The studio interior is beautifully decorated with heirloom-style bistro table and chairs, a relaxed seating area with couch & hand-painted coffee table, a comfortable Queen sized bed with very nice linens, a fully-equipped kitchen and a private bath with fluffy bath and beach towels.
Perfectly accommodates 2 guests but can sleep up to 3 using the couch that folds out into a full bed.
A beautiful sandy beach and calm blue ocean is a 30 second walk from the apartment, and a spacious grassy oceanfront area in front of the main house with a hammock hanging in-between the coconut trees is available to all our property tenants and vacation rental guests. The sunsets are always eventful, and in the winter season Humpback Whales can be spotted jumping and tail slapping. Check out our video of the front yard and beach access!
The studio also has lots of windows and a fantastic ocean view! And it 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. Other amenities include WI-FI and a flat screen T.V., 2 beach chairs and umbrella.
Charley Young Beach is a public beach park in a residential neighborhood. It 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.
The studio faces the ocean but also runs adjacent to the street below, right next to the entrance of the beach park which can get energetic from visitors, bicycles, mopeds and vehicles coming and going to the beach. So factor in a bit of noise, 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 all the "action", the center of bustling Kihei town. Most everything is 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.
