I can't say a single bad comment about this amazing, tropical, pristine, fresh rental. I loved it, the group we booked under, the location and above all, the view!!! Worth the cost of you ask me.
We stayed a Menehune Shores 412 from 23 August to 30 August. The condo was very clean, full of everything you need for a holiday in the sun. Beach chairs, chilly bin and a fridge with ice and cold water was great. The view was exceptional, ocean and more ocean, gorgeous. the staff member who greeted us was very friendly and full of information for us being first timers in Maui. The air con in the condo was a great option as some nights were very warm especially for us who are used to a cool climate. I would definitely recommend Menehune Shores for a holiday stay and particularly 412.
Amazing Location. Beautiful and Well appointed Condo!
This condo was a great find and a wonderful spot to start our Hawaiian vacation. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need from binoculars for whales watching from the lanai to quality pots and pans for searing up some fresh ahi! This is a quality place that I would confidently recommend.
Check in was easy and they called the next day to be sure everything was fine. The owner's info binder was really helpful with maps of snorkel beaches, food suggestions and more. The owners and management company do a really nice job.
If there was anything at all that we wished for, it would have been a few more dining locations in walking distance, but the long walks on the beach more than made up for that!
Relaxing and comfortable stay.
Very good service from ali'i Resorts. Comfortable condo with superb oceanfront view from the lanai especially at sunset. Close to activities, beach, shopping and restaurants.
We stayed for a week, had absolutely marvelous time. Condo was exactly as described with stunning ocean view. Kitchen was well equipped. Everything that we could have needed during our stay was provided in the condo.
This was our third trip to Maui - and we honestly wanted to stay there permanently.
On previous trips we've stayed in a resort and cruised - this was our first stay in a condo. We loved everything about it. This unit lives up to every photo and review that we had seen before our trip. It's beautifully furnished, and the view is amazing!
The grounds of the facility are kept up meticulously by staff that we saw working around the clock. We used the grills by the pool nearly every night. This was a great feature! Some reviews we had seen before the trip indicated that the ocean could be a bit murky/weedy right outside the building but we never experienced this. The water was clear and great for swimming (and there was not a weed to be seen!)
The location was also great - it was very easy to get anywhere we wanted to go.
We love Maui and really hope to make it our home some day. In the meantime, we'll just have to come for visits =) The top of our priority list will be to reserve this specific unit as it had everything we needed and more.
Thanks to the owners for sharing their home!

Enjoyed our stay at Menehune Shores. Great lanai water view for relaxing and whale watching. Unit quite nice, however the bed linens were oversized for the double bed and storage in bedroom somewhat limited (minor items).
Met some very nice people at the complex at the barbecue area(s). P
Outstanding in every way.
Quiet, restful and an amazing view!!!
Everything is a short drive away or a walk.
Will be back!!!
Great spot, we will be back
Great appartment, exactly as pictured, clean, full kitchen, which was essential for us as we did not go to the restaurant. Wireless internet access worked without problem (in fact, we had a small problem one day that was resolved by alii Resorts the next day, and that was on a Sunday, so great response time). Staff for the building cleaned the common areas of the building all the time, this is a very well maintained property. Grass at the ground level is cut short like a green on a golf course. Great pool too. Nice view from the roof on the 7th floor, and we used a number of times the barbecues on the 7th floor to cook our meals, those barbecues too were kept extra clean by the property staff. Air conditionning in the living room and the bedroom worked flawlessly but, that being said, with trade winds (and it gets very windy in the afternoon/night), we often just kept the patio door opened and the wind was fresh enough to save us from using the air conditionning. Early in the morning you could see the local fishermen trying to catch fish with nets in the shallow waters right in front of the building. In summary, great view, clean, full kitchen, nice pool. Outside of the short term rentals like us, it looked like the permanent residents were mostly retired couples. We recommend highly, we will be back.
We loved the beach front location and the building and grounds were kept in immaculate condition. There were several markets near-by and lots of small eateries. We enjoyed the beaches on either side but drove farther up or down the coast for good snorkeling. We had one glaring complaint about the beautiful condo: with its location, the sun sets directly into the glass/mirrored front, and with no way to block the sun, it was blinding for several hours. An outside dropping shade would be a welcome addition.
Gorgeous Ocean view and condo
We had a fabulous time staying in #412. Not only was the condo beautifully decorated, the owner had thoughtfully provided all the extras to make the stay complete, including beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler, lovely glassware and dishes, in-suite laundry, lovely linens, great TV and sound system, air-conditioning, incredible kitchen (and every appliance we could possibly use) and luxurious shower. We enjoyed watching the sunsets, surf, kite-boarders and palm trees from the lanai. The condo is well located for trips along the north coast or to Hani or south to snorkel or take in a luau in Wailea. Although the high wind was relentless and carried a lot of dust into the condo when the doors were open, it also cooled the condo nicely so we didn't have to use the a/C. I noticed from the guest book that quite a few Canadians had stayed in and enjoyed #412. Ali'i Resorts were very helpful with recommendations and instructions. We felt well taken care of. Our favourite adventure was ziplining with Flying Hawaiian Zipline Tours (only half hour drive away)and our favourite dinner was just down the street at Sansai for amazing sushi, other than the steak dinner we made at the condo Bbqs and ate with champagne on the lanai watching the sunset. How perfect is that?
This is a beautiful condo. Over the years, I've stayed at many at Menehuene Shores, and this is at the top of the list.
Ali'i Resorts personnel did a great job in getting us what we needed for the condo.
