Everyone has been so helpful in helping me narrow down my search for a special condo in to stay in Kihei for a special occasion. We now have 3 choices, all look good on the web and have their advantages and disadvantages. These are the 3:

It doesn't look like there is a Menehune Shores 257 according to this: http://www.wizardpub.com/maui/mrmenehune.html

Here's an aerial of Kihei Akahi: www.wizardpub.com/maui/mrkiheiakahi.html

you're welcome :)

Mauigirl is staying at Mehenune Shores right now ... maybe she will see this and respond, or you could try PM'ing her. Here's a link to a thread she's posting on: tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g29220-i86-k5375187…

Concerns that I would have with MS 227 are the closeness to the road (the lanai looks to be about 20' from S. Kihei road) and the direct view is of the building next door (you can see this in the listing photos), with a small parking area right below your unit. A side view from the lanai will give you views of the ocean.

I wasn't able to find a listing for 321.

p.s. not sure if you've mentioned in other posts when you are going to Maui and what you need (one or two bedroom) and approx. nightly budget ... but if you are struggling to find something, please let us know that info and we'll provide some recommendations.

I would opt for the Kihei Akahi personally, the location is awesome! Right across the street from one of the best beaches in S. Maui and within walking distance to shops, grocery, and restaurants.

The lack of a/c in both of those units might be a problem, depending on when your visit is going to be.

No A/C? I wouldn't book anything in Hawaii at any time of year if A/C was not an option. I'd be extra concerned about a condo that faces due west (heats up starting at noon) or is directly under the roof.
