North Kihei Condo Rentals & Hotel Resorts
Located on the coastal strip of South Maui fronting the Pacific Ocean, Kihei lies in the rain shadow of the mighty Haleakala Mountain and consequently gets the least rainfall in all of Maui. Even in the middle of winter, temperatures in Kihei reach a balmy 81°, and summer regularly sees 90° degrees with almost no chance of rain. In fact, its original name "Kama'ole" bears witness to Kihei's barrenness before water was piped down from the mountains to the coast to support Kihei's emerging reputation as a popular Hawaiian vacation destination in the 1970s and 1980s.
At first glance, Kihei appears to look uniform given its abundance of beaches and oceanfront resorts and vacation rentals that are often right on the beach or just across the road. A closer inspection, however, reveals that there are marked differences between the section of Kihei closest to Maalaea and the other end of it closest to Wailea. For starters, Sugar Beach, the longest in Maui, is located in North Kihei. Where the coast takes a sharp, almost 90° turn toward Maalaea Harbor, is where North Kihei roughly begins.
Less evident is the almost residential feel of North Kihei (as opposed to South Kihei's bustling vibe), allowing for quieter nights here. That means it’s easier to hear the crashing ocean waves when you stay in one of the vacation condo rentals right on the beach. This also means it will take a little bit of extra time to get to services catering to visitors, although this usually entails just a short drive. On the upside, you will be that much closer to Kahului Airport, which often doesn’t take more than half an hour's drive from wherever you are in North Kihei.
