I would definitely recommend Menehune Shores 320 as a great place to stay. We would book again and recommend it to friends. It is easy to access with a car and the location is central which allowed us to drive to many different locations on the island. Our rental unit was well equipped and the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were perfect for 2 couples. We had a great view of the ocean and enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets. The booking agent was available by email or phone.
Louise C., New Norway, AB2.7.16
The unit could easily be a 5 star. It needs the owners' TLC. They obviously do not visit regularly. As a consequence, they do not see issues like poor housekeeping, missing equipment, etc... The unit was very dirty when we arrived. We had to go on hands and knees to wash the floors. We had to get a professional to clean the rugs, a $80 charge. The TV is unacceptable! the DSL internet connection was very poor, and the TV package did not include the main channels like CNN in HD. Additionally, the HDMI ports would not work, preventing the ability to cast from our own devices. Plus no elevator for a month!
John M., Los Altos, CA1.11.16
Unit was clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the beach, water and sunsets. Kitchen has most of what we needed and all appliances were in good working order. The couple of issues that came up were quickly settled with a call to the owner/and or contact. The facility has a wonderful pool and roof top BBQ area and every Menehune Shores guest we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. Would recommend it to our friends.
Overall OK and WiFi excellent!! Customer service ok but no reply to direct email query Was clean enough but lots of ants that got into food. I didn't appreciate expired meat in fridge. Rental ok but probably would not book here again. Beach was not as clean as others on Maui. I also did not appreciate being requested to wash the linen when no laundry liquid was provided. I did however purchase same and washed all sheets and towels that we used. We did not use the dishwasher after one use as the drain appeared to be blocked and water ended up all over the bench. Otherwise our visit was fine, the accommodation adequate for our needs and handy for all the places we visited.
Kathryn S., Palmerston North, MWT10.26.14
The booking of this place was easy to do online and quick. I got my instructions and ck in information in my email. Got to the condo, and entered with ease. Place was clean and comfortable. Nice view of the ocean. The drawback and only thing was...... i had to purchase toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and laundry soap. I left all of what i purchased.....for the next visitors. L. Weller
Lynell W., Moreno Vally, CA9.24.14
Our ten day vacation at Menehune Shores was awesome. The two bedroom unit was perfect. My biggest complaint was my bedroom door squeaked when I opened it. I should have shot a little sun screen on it but I didn't. The unit was clean and very comfortable. The entire complex was very nice. I would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Maui. The weather cooperated. No rain in Kihei and the wind was tolerable. It didn't keep me off the beach or out of the pool.
Steve K., Kenai, AK4.28.13
For our first visit to Maui, we found 320 Menehune Shores absolutely perfect. It offered and provided exactly what we were looking for in terms of price, ammenities and proximity to sights and experiences we desired. We had the pleasure of meeting the property owner during our stay, who was extremely helpful and accomodating. I would most definitely recommend it to friends and consider a repeat visit. The "best part" of our stay was EVERYTHING... from seeing numerous humpback whales from our balcony on the morning of our last day, almost like they came to say goodbye...very moving. Snorkelling along the coral reefs and seeing the abundant and incredible fish species and massive seaturtles at arms length. Sea kayaking, paddling on a traditional outrigger canoe. Morning jogs on the beach and the best papaya and advocados in the world!! A million MAHALOS to the property management team and owners. Superb job well done.
Gerben D., Peace River, AB4.15.13
This was a well kept condo with a great view. It's in a great location, had a nice pool and you could not have had better access to the ocean. We had a great time and would recommend this place to family and friends. We also had fun grilling on the roof!
Paul W., West Bend, WI3.30.13
The TV has a sound problem. I think the speakers are shot. Was very nice of you to allow us to check out a little later - thank you.
Edgar F., Ellicott City, MD2.12.13
This condo is well furnished, clean and great for two couples. I would stay at this unit again! I did like the location of the unit on the island, it was easy to get around and see attractions without any real effort. I liked how the owners and prior guest leave extra stuff they have purchased (books, movies, road to hana cd, etc) The other tenants that live there were all very nice and helpful. Great Place.. Great Vacation Rental!
Dock K., Christopher, IL2.27.12
The unit was perfect. A great location, great view, great beach, wonderfully clean and well outfitted with even more than we could use. We loved out Maui vacation and hope to come back soon.
Susan D., Anchorage, AK12.2.11
It was great having all the convenience of home and beach equipment was a plus. Condo was very neat and clean and a great view. The grill by the pool were great. Can't think of anything bad about the condo, only exception was the business hours of the Menehune shores, 9 to 1 pm made impossible for us to register, but that worked out ok since we could put a note on car dash. Island of Maui was wonderful, best of all was the trip to Molikini. Lahina was great shopping area. Our favorite restaurant was Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. We would definitely recommend Maui and the Menehune Shores for Condo accommodations. Thanks for making our trip a geat experience.
Janice P., Fort Worth, TX11.5.11
Good place. very nice view from the balcony. Near from everything. we was 4 me and my wife with our 2 kids. maybe just one thing. the condo was built in 1973 and never renovated. so the shower drain and copples things need to be renovated. except that ther many air/con tv and chairs and all thats stuff. i recommend it
Francis H., Shannon, QC9.6.11
The view was great. It would have been nice to know that rental had beach towels, boogie boards and beach chairs prior to arrival. They did have a beach umbrella, but it was broken - still usable. Great to have two full bathrooms. Guests should know that this is a very windy area. The BBQ's were unusable due to the high winds in the evenings (i.e. they would not heat up properly and the lids would actually fall down because of the high wind). Pool is nice, warm, clean - but guests with children should be advised of pool rules beforehand (no toys, diving, jumping, marco polo = no fun!). Kitchen had basic supplies, could use a few more, like rubber scrapers, working scissors, etc. A big suggestion is to treat the cabinets so that they don't smell! Good location - not far from surfing lessons, snorkeling beaches, restaurants.
Kathy M., Tracy, California7.18.11
What we liked best about the unit was the view and the rooftop BBQ and seating area. The customer service was good. The best part of our trip was the Old Lahaina Luau. The service was top notch and so was the entertainment. It was fantastic! The best restaurant we went to is a tie between Mama's Fish House and Cheeseburger in Paradise. Mama's Fish House is amazing from the moment you walk on to the grounds. Beautiful scenery and ambiance. Cheeseburger in Paradise has really good food. It hit the spot for the need of a good burger. The best pic of us has to be on our wedding day in Makena. I would recommend taking the road to Hana. It was beautiful. There are so many different stops along the way. My husband isn't one for enjoying the sites of nature as much as I am but he enjoyed it too! My advice to someone else staying in the unit is read the notebook that is made for the unit. There were things in there we didn't notice until about day 3 like the additional cost of air conditioning. The best "insider tip" we received was packing a cooler and driving the road to Hana. I may have skipped it but so many "locals" recommended it and how to do it. It was definitely worth it. We didn't have time to go Zip Lining this time, but we will next time.
Taniesha C., Puyallup, WA10.17.10
Comment by Owner/Manager:
There is NO additional cost for Air Conditioning unless there's excessive electricity use resulting from leaving A/C on with open doors and/or windows. Air Conditioning is now available year round, however we do appreciate when guests use it conservatively and do not leave doors and windows open when it's on. Mahalo!
Thank you for asking. We were very dismayed that the entire parking lot was being repaved and redone. It smelled, was noisy and was not what we were expecting. We should have been notified in advance of our vacation or offered another unit. The unit has a great view and we enjoyed having two bedrooms for two adult couples. We thought the master would be a king bed, but it was only a queen. We did not use the air conditioner so I have not comment on that. There were a few problems with the unit I think should be brought to your attention. The area rug in the main living area was basically filthy and either needs thorough cleaning or replacing. The unit was neat, but the floor seemed not clean and also needs a steam cleaning; our feet were black from walking around without shoes. The toilet in the master near the master bedroom leaks from the back base every time you flush causing a minor flood. Additionally, in that bathroom the draining in the shower is not very good. The washing machine knob is broken so that it comes off in your hand when you try to turn it on and we had to use tong to turn it on. The unit is basically nice and just needs a little deep cleaning and refreshing to be a something that would make a better impression. We did appreciate the pricing on this unit, but it would have been a better value if the above things were taken care of. Thank you for your services, and we hope our feedback is helpful.
Bonnie H., Simi Valley, CA10.5.10
It felt very homey. I liked the guest book. I would definetly reccomend to others and left notes in the book. My only complaint is that the a/c lock box combination given me was incorrect not a big deal. We liked so many things on our trip to many to list.
Jeremy R., Kalispell, MT5.2.10
We liked Maui the best out of the 4 islands we stayed on. The apartment was comfortable and well supplied. The location was great and we enjoyed our stay. It is unfortunate that the owner chooses to not put adequate/any instructions about the location of the air conditioner controls. We were not the only guests who could not find them the first night. It is almost as if the owners do not want you to find them. While the beds were comfortable the sheets smelled of mold. The door hinges were squeaky and this was a problem in the night when someone had to get up. The apartment was very nice but possibly could use new tubs and the fridge is a definate eye sore. The grounds were amazingly manicured and the building very clean. We were sad we didn't get to go to the restaurant there as it sure smelled good. We enjoyed all the wildlife on the grounds and even saw a turtle swimming from our balcony. Our favorite part was sitting on the patio and listening to the waves during breakfast or cards later in the evening.
Terri R., EDmonton, AB11.7.09
Comment by Owner/Manager:
Instructions for A/C have been made clearer. Also, the Owner's phone # is given - please call us if there are any questions. The fridge was replaced in January 2010 (the old fridge developed rust spots on the doors from the sea air).
We loved the ocean view and being able to hear the waves. The best part of trip was being with my husband and daughter. Our favorited places to eat were Bubba Gumps and Stella Bellas. I think that information should be more clear regarding the unit. Especially the A/C Unit. No where in my papers did they tell us that the remotes were in a lock box. It was very hot during our stay due to the humidity being almost the same as the outside temperature. Our first evening was miserable because of this.

Nice unit in good location. Very well equiped - everything we needed was there!
Catherine A., Moorpark, CA8.10.09
We loved the sound of the ocean. Be sure to take the road to Hana and use the CD that is in the unit to guide you. Next time we will plan to have our dinner on the roof the view from up there was fantastic! Be sure to clarify the code to get in to the unit prior to getting there. the one we received was incorrect so we stood at the door until getting a call back with the correct code. Air conditioning is a must in the afternoon. If this unit is availble next time we would love to stay there again. Mahlo!
Gerri M., Yakima, WA11.3.08
Comment by Owner/Manager:
Thank you for your comments! A helpful hint is to Open the doors and windows on each side of the condo to let the on-shore and off-shore breezes blow through the condo. The temperature will stay cool in the condo this way in all but the warmest months (July to Sept.). Mahalo!
Decent accomodation. Great View, Some items like toilet paper, dishwasher detergent and garbage backs were missing. Unit was a liitle small for 2 couples each with a small child. A/C was good!! Breakfast at the Kihei Cafe - Banana and macadamian nut pancakes ***** Maui Madness Pizza- Great Pizza, good prices Lahaina Fish Co -0 Sunset Dinner.
Dallas W., Edmonton, Alberta9.6.08
The actual unit was very nice - decorated well, lots of extras eg. cooler, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. We did have quite a problem accessing the unit. We were emailed a code fore the "key box" but it would not work. We called the numbers we were given and did not receive a call back for 2 days. Luckily, "Nick" the assistant manager of Menehue Shores, saw us and used his pass key to let us into our unit. There was a full set of keys on the counter so we at least had a place to stay. We did book air conditioning and the remote units to turn it on were no where to be found. There was another "key box" that said "A/C" but the code we had did not work for that box either. There also seemed to be quite a bit of noise, especially on the parking lot side of the unit. S. Kehei Road has lots of traffic all day and night. The other side of the unit had a nice ocean view and we loved hearing the waves slap the beach. We did enjoy our trips to Big Beach and the lava fields.
Debbie B., Franklin, IN7.18.08
We liked the view from the unit (320) and the ammenities were nice, and we had a great time. There seeme to be something wrong with the water presure in the gest bath shower, perhaps it was just a poor style of shower head, but we were unable to use that shower. It was unfortunate that wrk was being done, but the workers were custeous, and we were able to move arouns them as needed.
Johnathan H., Orange, CA6.30.08
Aloha We all had a great time in Hawaii. The appartment was great. The best was the big balcony overlooking the ocean. We sat there every night after Dinner for a couple of drinks. I wish though that the beach at the complex was a little nicer. They cleaned up the beach every morning but the water is not clear and not very inviting. But it is a very small negative as there are so many beautiful beaches in Maui. My friend got married and I have to say it was the most beautiful wedding I ever attended. 8 am in the morning, the beach all to ourself and the most beautiful surroundings you can wish for a wedding. If I ever ...... The best Restaurant we found was in the Wailea Beach resort at Wailea. It was called Humpalumpasomething. A long name it is. Can't remember. It is built like a classy Tikki Bar on top of a saltwater pool right next to the ocean. It has a waterfall and a couple of aquariums. And the fresh fish is niiiiiiiiiiiice. Take the time to drive around the island. Don't just hang around where you stay. The north shore and the road to Hana are amazing. A must do. And of course the Haleakala in the morning. DO IT. The best insider tip I got is about gorcery shopping. Go to Safeway and ask for their membership card. You safe about 1/3 on your shopping. This will leave you with more money to go diving and do all the fun stuff. Thanks to everyone at Hawaiian Beach rental. They answered all my questions and were very helpful. They rock. Mahalo plenty and I hope I will be in Maui again soon. Seppe
Werner K., Orlando, FL6.13.08
The unit was very good. It was more than we expected being close to the ocean & the view was great! We loved the roof-top BBQ & view from there too. We did have some issues with some of the people there though. There were several occassions where they were very rude to us & our children. In one case, my children were waiting to come up to the unit on the elevator & I witnessed a couple telling them they could not get on the elevator with them. I think the people there forgot what it was like to be a 10 yr old. My children are not loud or disrepectful & there was no reason for that behaivor. That was hard to explain to them why an adult would do something like that. I probably would not rent here again with my kids because of that. It was like back in the days of slavery & the way the black people were treated. Bad enough I had to mention it. Sheila Freiberg
Sheila F., Valley Springs, CA5.25.08
Unit 320 was so well equipped!! We had everything we needed. The view and access to the ocean was a special treat. I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Maui!
James W., Sparks, NV4.27.08
The view from the lanai was spectacular and the condo neat, tidy and well maintained. It had more natural Hawaii feel than the large hotels and condos in Wailea. The beach was quiet and the water amazingly warm...good for swimming but not snorkling. The back bedroom was too warm at night...but this was the only negative criticism we had. Thanks for taking good care of us. Jackie Odell and family
Alex and Jackie O., Mount Vernon, WA3.29.08
This was a great rental with a wonderful view. We liked that it was right on the beach but also just far enough from the main center of Kihei that the beach was not to be too busy as well. We did have a problem with the kitchen sink clogging but the people caring for the condo did all they could to fix it quickly and it didn't impede on us enjoying our trip. Well equipped and clean, we would surely rent this unit again. We loved the sunrise on Haleakala definitely worth getting up early, we left the unit at 4 am and got there with plenty of time. The Road to Hana was an adventure, I would recommend leaving early though in order to enjoy it all. Also the Luau at the Marriott was great, the dancers were awesome. It was a wonderful trip!!!
Kristy F., Calgary, Alberta3.16.08
It was a wonderful rental on many levels. Beautiful view ! well equipped kitchen and towels. good separation of bedrooms. Though lots of noise - from gardeners and bulldozers and neighbors........ But who cares - you're in Hawaii - GO TO THE BEACH - be happy !!! I would be happy to rent the same unit again ! aloha
