The perfect location for a relaxing getaway
For our first trip to Maui we decided to book the “little grass shack” as all the reviews seem to be positive and it completely lived up to our expectations! Patricia was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made the booking process easy and provided us with a lot of great info on the area. The unit was very clean, well maintained and had everything you could possibly need (including wifi that had a great connection!). The beach is right across the street and there are lots of great shops and restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed having our breakfast out on the lanai every morning listening to the birds and looking out on the ocean. We visited a few beaches on the island during our 1 week stay, but found the beach right across the street was our favorite. We had the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time, thank you again so much Patricia and Jefferson. We hope to come back one day very soon! Read more

We are thrilled that we were able to help make your first visit to magical Maui a memorable one! Mahalo for writing the review for us and for taking such good care of our "little grass shack" while you were here. You are welcome back any time. A hui hou, Patricia & Jefferson

My wife and I selected this location after reading the great reviews and suffice it to say, no one was being deceitful. The condo is clean, comfortable and ideally located. The pool and laundry facilities are right across the parking lot; the beach and restaurants are right at the entrance of the complex. All-in-all a great location. A few folks may have difficulty with the third floor location, but we managed fine for being in our late fifties. The Stillwells are wonderful landlords, they got us a great discount at a wonderful luau. We weren't disappointed and neither will you. ps, there is wifi in the condo. Read more

Thank you for writing a review for us. We're happy that you had a great time and appreciated the excellent location and amenities that our condo offers. When we stayed there prior to moving here permanently, we looked at the stairs as bonus exercise that allowed us to enjoy all the delicious food and umbrella drinks without guilt--and it worked!! Glad you liked to lu'au! A hui hou, Patricia and Jefferson

This is where you can truly relax and "live aloha". Waking up to the birds and enjoying coffee on the lanai looking at palm trees, blue sky and the ocean is what keeps bringing us back to the "little grass shack". The location is central in Kihea which works well for people who want to experience the variety of wonderful beaches and snorkelling South Maui has to offer. The condo complex is well managed and safe with security on site and there is a friendly community feel to it. The pool is great for children and adults and nice to visit in the afternoon if the trade winds are too strong at the beach. This unit is very comfortable and has an open feel to it by having a partial ocean view as well as great views of Haleakala. It does not take long to feel relaxed and at home here and that is enhanced by Patricia's hospitality and desire to make sure her guests are comfortable and have what they need to "live aloha" while visiting Maui. Much Mahalo!!
Central and affordable
It had everything we wanted, beachfront, walking distance to shops, very close to the Kihei boat ramp - especially helpful for us as we did some diving while we were there. It had free WiFi & a dvd player for those nights we wanted to relax. It was also only a short drive to the National Park & other places on the coast which we visited easily in our hire car. Owners are friendly and extremely easy to deal with - highly recommend.

Great home away from home.
We cant say enough good things about this condo rental experience!
The condo is fully equipped with everything we needed on our stay. From the full kitchen to the extra fans, this condo was spot on! It was nice not to have to rent our beach equipment too. The condo is located right across the road from the fantasic Kamaole II beach and you will find great restaurants, shops, a general store, and bus stops at the end of the condo complex. The people at the front desk are very helpful/friendly and the pool was great in the afternoon sun!
The owner was very helpful and even left us a Welcome "Home" basket for our arrival! She also accommodated our late arrival and departure! Our honeymoon in Maui was amazing and having an affordable, nice, clean and convenient place to call your headquarters was incredible.
Review of "Little Grass Shack" Unit 340
The "Little Grass Shack" was anything but a "shack"! Kihei Kai Nani (KKN) Unit 340 is a comfortable, clean, well-appointed condo right across from Kamaole Parks I, II, and III. Lots of amenities are provided: two flat screen TVs with dvd players, radio/tape/cd player (great for listening to local Hawaiian radio stations), internet connection, ceiling fans, window air conditioner and free standing tower fan, microwave, dishwasher, disposal and supplies including a hair dryer, iron/ironing board, beach chairs, and water toys. There is a helpful book of restaurant and activities reviews compiled by guests--not your typical hotel "area guide" in which businesses pay to be represented with glowing reviews---so you can trust those reviews to be accurate. I have stayed in many different units at KKN over the years. This one is certainly one of the best! Not only was it clean and comfortable, but the owners left a welcome basket and a message on the condo answering machine to welcome me to the island and to their condo---a perfect touch of aloha spirit. Many condos in KKN are managed by companies or by owners who are far away, so not only is the personal touch absent, often so is the concern for the condition of the condo. The location of KKN unit 340 is good: it is far enough back on the property to avoid any noise from the street. It's height (being on the third floor) affords nice views from the west windows and lanai. I watched many lovely sunsets right through the windows in the eating area, and the lanai offered views of the ocean through the swaying palm trees. Kkn is a wonderful condo complex, close to restaurants, shopping, and best of all, across the street from the loveliest parks on Maui. You can see honus (and whales when in season) just by walking to Kam III and sitting on the bench. I definitely recommend this condo for a charming, comfortable and affordable stay in Kihei.

Wonderful 30th anniversary vacation
We stayed at this condo May 18 to May 25, 2013. We were impressed from the moment we walked through the door. Patricia even left us a welcome basket with a note which was a very nice touch and she also called to make sure we arrived and everything was ok. The condo is very spacious and bright and Patricia and Jefferson definitely take pride in their Little Grass Shack as they like to call it. The description and pictures are spot on and everything was very clean and well taken care of, Loved the walk in shower in the bathroom. We ate our breakfasts and lunches at the condo so that meant we only had to eat one meal out a day and that saved money, The kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed. The bed was huge and the bedroom was bright with all the windows. It was also nice to wake up every morning to the sound of all the birds singing. The location is great too. We were able to walk across the parking lot to the pool and we were just across the beach from a beautiful beach. There were also lots of restuarants within walking distance. I loved sitting out on the lanai and reading. It was so nice to come back to this place after a long day to just unwind and relax. We only used the air conditioner a couple times because you can get really nice cross breezes because of all the windows. If you want to go to a good lua be sure to call Patrcia because you will get good seats at a good price. We went and felt like we received the royal treatment. Thanks Patricia and Jefferson for a great evening and we loved getting to meet you. Thank you again for helping to make our 30th wedding anniversary a very special memory for us!
Great place to stay in South Maui
We made the right choice for staying at this condo. The location is perfect, across the street from a great beach, and quite few good restaurants within the block. The 3rd floor corner location provides some ocean view, and the cross-breeze kept the room cool at night. (air condition is available in the living room but really no need to use it). We'll stay again in this place next time we come to Maui.
Pls note the room only has wired Internet. We have a travel Router with us so no issue using multiple iPad and laptops.
Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada
A comfortable, airy and really well-equipped condo.
With all the windows in this corner unit, ventilation was very good and there was no need to use the a/C. It was really well-equipped - everything you could want for the beach and the kitchen, and it had tons of storage space. We appreciated the welcome basket and the ice cubes in the freezer, as well as all the condiments. It was very easy to contact the owner with any questions.
With the partial ocean view from the lanai, we were able to see whales in the distance. The beach was only a few minutes' walk away; excellent beach walking/running and trail to Wailea. Great location for exploring and enjoying the south coast of Maui.
The Kihei Kai Nani complex is low-key and has a large, extremely well maintained pool with friendly staff and residents. Great coffee and shave ice stand just up the road and good restaurants within a few minutes by foot.

Everything you might need in a little Paradise
My wife and I stayed in the condo for 8 nights. It was our very fist experience on Maui and Hawaii.
From the very first minutes we stepped in everything inside was saying: You are welcome! Feel like you are at home, have no worries and enjoy your second Honeymoon! :)
All kinds of kitchen utensils and appliances, plenty of towels, extra blankets and pillows, beautifully decorated rattan shelves and cabinets, different little things you may need at your tropical vacation (i.e. beach recliners, snorkeling gears, thermo containers and ice packs etc., etc...), TVs, Dvds, radios, alarm clocks... and of course, a welcoming note from the owner with some treats in a basket - everything was there! We also enjoyed the huge balcony (lanai is the proper word in Hawaiian :) ) featuring a beautiful view from it.
The property owner was very easy and nice to deal with. She provided all the details and all the information we needed, and even more. Actually, the pictures of the property available online are very honest, unlike some others (especially hotel rooms), where a tiny stuffy "compartment" is shot with a wide angle camera lens making the room look royally spacious. On the first morning after our arrival she called in and asked whether we found everything OK and if we felt comfortable, and offered her help at any time we might need anything. It made us feel even more welcome.
As it was our very first trip to Maui we were not sure we were picking the right location on the island. But after having driven through the entire island visiting nearly all local towns and resort places, we had no more doubt that Kihei Kai Nani in South Kihei was the perfect location! The best beaches are just across the street; beautiful views, flowering trees and bushes all around, variety of restaurants and shops, and still very quiet and not crowded at all.
We would recommend 340 Kihei Kai Nani to anyone seeking a very nice and affordable place for their Maui getaway.
Couldn't be better!
My husband and I stayed in this condo in Kihei for nearly 2 weeks. Everything about it was perfect for us. The location across the street from, Kamaole Beach 2 is wonderful. Just a two minute walk and you're there. This is a perfect beach for walking and even decent snorkeling. The condo itself was bright, sunny and clean and well stocked with anything you could ever want. The owner was very responsive to a couple of minor problems. There was plenty of good shopping and restaurants nearby so we could walk to everything. Plus it's in a really quiet location ithe complex. The bed was super comfortable. The only drawback was it was on the third floor and there is no elevator so it would not work for someone who has bad knees. We would definitely stay here again.
Great place and location!
Just got back from a month in heaven. We have stayed at this location before and it is very nice for the money! I think that I would take this real Hawaiin living over the expensive hotels in the area. The condo is very well set up and all you really need to bring are your clothes. Watching the whales off the balcony is very cool. I would recommend this condo to a couple or a couple with children any day!
British Columbia, Canada
Everything was excellent - including location, condo contents (beach chairs, towels, cooler, etc.) and available condiments. We received a welcoming goodie package plus additional limes, oranges during the week. Delicious!! Thank you so much. No fault of the facility but because we don't like using air con we would leave our windows open at night resulting in very early morning wake up from departing vehicles. Other than that I would recommend this condo.
Kihei Grass Shack
We enjoyed our time very much at the Little Grass Shack. It was in a great location, right across the beach and close to many amenities. The condo had everything we required; snorkeling equipment, restaurant reviews by previous guests, and even the "Drive to Hana" CD! We would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax and enjoy their vacation.
Ten days of relaxation in a beautifully located nd furnished con
Our stay of 10 days in the Stillwell condo was wonderful. The condo had a king size bed and lots of space in the closet, with the bathroom being large and having a very inviting shower area. The livingroom and kitchen met all of our needs and the a/C was especially nice over the 89 degree days we had while there. We also appreciated that by 10 p.m. each night the area had a no noise curfew.
The beach was within a couple of blocks with 3 areas for snorkeling, swimming, and sunbathing. It was nice having a choice of restaurants close by and shopping malls.
There was only 1 aspect that was slightly annoying the noise of the a/C located below the TV.
We felt right at home in the comfortable condo and intend on returning to it in the future.

Must Stay Place in Kihei
My husband and I just spent the past ten days at the most beautiful home in Kihei, Maui. We would go back tomorrow and live there the rest of our lives if we could :o) The location is excellent. The beaches, and there were several, are within a short walking distance. The sunset every night was unimaginable.
They call our one bedroom condo the Little Grass Hut, but it is so much more than that. The owners are wonderful hosts. They even provided a darling care package to get us started. The fridge had a few must need condiments all new. The cupboards were fully equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils, pots and pans and dishes. There were even a few must use spices readily available. To our delight there was a brand new gas grill just outside our building that we used frequently.
The pool is the perfect size and whisper quiet for those afternoons when the beach might not seem the place to be. However, we found the beaches amazing. We loved them all and they were not crowded at any part of the day. We were out there morning, noon and night, and each time was perfect.
The neighboring restraunts were also very nice. A deli sandwhich place was just down the parking lot a bit, and there was a wonderful breakfast cafe just a few blocks away. Both I would highly, highly reccommend.
Our accomodations were just lovely. We had a view of the ocean from our balcony where we were able to sit and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The condo was spotlessly clean and we felt very much at home. The owners checked on us shortly after we arrived and allowed us some extra time to stay on our last day which was a godsend since our flight was not until 10pm.
We will definitely be telling all of our friends about The Little Grass Hut and our wonderful time in Kihei. We can't wait to plan our next visit. Many thanks to Patricia and Jefferson on their amazing hospitality. If you are going to Maui be sure and check them out!

Wonderful Vacation accomodation
We just returned from 10 day vacation on Maui and stayed at Kihei Kai Nani. Cannot say enough great things about this property. Beautifully maintained, comfortable, quiet, fabulous location in Kihei, large pool and extraordinary beaches right across the street. Patricia, the owner anticipated our every need and was readily available with recommendations, a welcome basket, gracious to help us out on the last day with our late plane departure. For what you get, the price is extremely reasonable and I would not hesitate to give this property my highest recommendation
North Vancouver, B.C. Canada
This accommodation exceeded our expectations.
The location and accommodation were comfortable, convenient, and clean! We appreciated the availability of snorkel and beach gear too. When we had problems (of our own making), the Stillwells responded immediately. We would highly recommend this rental to others.
It was everything we hoped it would be.
Our trip to Maui was everything we hoped it would be and the location of the "little grass shack" had a lot to do with it. It was close to a lovely beach that was perfect for swimming, relaxing and watching the sun set. It was walking distance to restaurants and shops. The condo had everything we needed for a fun day at the beach and the fully stocked kitchen made meal preparation a breeze. The condo complex was well maintained, the staff was friendly, and the pool and laundry facilities were located nearby. After visiting bustling Lahaina and no-parking-Ka'anapali we realized the pace in Kihei was just right. We're looking forward to another trip to Maui and we will definitely be staying at the "little grass shack."
We stayed at this condo for a week in March. Everything we needed was here - all the kitchen supplies and even included all the beach chairs etc. . The condo was everything we had expected. Being on the 3rd floor we had a bit of view and with it being a corner suite we had lots of windows which we were able to keep open and let a breeze in so it was not too hot. The pool was right there and we made use of it. We were close to all amenities and the most important thing was the beach was right across the street which was fabulous. After a day of sun at the beach we came back and relaxed in the pool and were able to cook in or go out. We highly recommend this condo and will be back next year!
Deb & Paul
We spent 9 nights in the "Little Grass Shack" and had a wonderful time. We had everything we could need right in the condo. Beach chairs, umbrella, coolers/ice packs etc. The most amazing beach is right across the street. We would just walk over and snorkel in the morning and later go over and watch the beautiful sunsets. There were many restaurants and shops withing walking distance which was great. The Kihei Kai Nani complex is constantly being cleaned and the landscape taken care of. Patricia and Jefferson were so very helpful and kind, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your "Shack"!
Christmas Travellers and New Year's Revellers
We arrived just before Santa!!
We really appreciated the welcome basket along with milk and juice in the fridge as we arrived Christmas Eve. Patricia knew that getting at least these basics would be challenging the next (Christmas) morning. Santa filled our stockings and we ate Christmas dinner on the lanai over-looking the palm trees with the ocean in the background.
We looked at a number of other condos online and when we were there and quickly realized that "The Little Grass Shack” was superior to others in so many ways. The location was high enough for privacy and great views but low enough for easy access. It was right across from the pool but far enough away so as not to hear it; same thing went for its distance from the road access to the beach.
We couldn't have packed all of the beach things like chairs, noodles, boogie boards and coolers necessary for a great trip but they were in great condition waiting for us in the condo. The fully stocked kitchen made at home meals a snap. For overall convenience, price, cleanliness and location I'd highly recommend The Little Grass Shack to a couple or a young family like ours.
We've long felt that a vacation experience is what you make of it - not where you stay. However, after a long day of adventures having a clean, comfortable and convenient place to recharge gets you ready for your next adventure. This was definitely the right fit for exactly that!!
Everything we needed was there. Clean, efficient, excellent location. It was perfect for 2, and/or a small child. Never used the pool, but close to the beach. Wonderful. Would return fer sure!
Home away from home
We just returned from 3 weeks in Unit 340 at Kihei Kai Nani and are already missing it. The unit had everything we needed: flat screen Tv's , a king-size bed, a well stocked kitchen and all the beach equipment. It is very cosily decorated and, being a corner unit, is bright and airy. The partial view of the ocean is lovely. The location is ideal for accessing the beach across the road as well as a handfull of restaurants and bars.. If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to be.
Great location and value
Just returned from a 9-day stay at Kihei Kai Nani Vista, #340. This place has everything - coolers, beach towels, and a well stocked kitchen. The unit is nicer than it appears in the photos. We watched the sunset over the ocean every night from the kitchen window. Great location on the top floor, and there is a fabulous beach right across the street. There are plenty of amenities within walking distance, including restaurants, groceries and shopping.
Great Maui Vacation
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in this condo. We also visited other islands but this accomodation was definitely our favourite! The condo is very clean and well equiped. The nice interior decoration made us feel comfortable from the first instance, as well as Patricia always being in reach to answer questions.The view from the living room to the ocean is gorgeous. It was very helpful to have the laundry services available. This accomodation is very close to the beach, as well as to shops and restaurants. It is in a good location for tours to each part of the island. We recommend this place to anyone and hope to come back ourselves one day...
Wonderful holiday spot
The condo was in beautiful location, only a few steps from a quite nice beach with snorkel gear, surfboard etc rentals close by. The apartment was spacious, furnished in good style. It didn't feel like a rented place but like staying a someone's home. It was very clean and equipped with everything one can possibly use for a good vacation from beach towels to coolers to boogie boards and more. It had fully equipped kitchen so we could enjoy cooking right there, combining this with many restaurants within easy walking distance. We also enjoyed taking dips in the pool although more of a quite place, we felt it was also a good place to stay with the kids and it's really comfortable as there is a good swimming family beach right across the road. "The Little Grass hack" It's a wonderful place and we have the fondest memories of our holiday.
My husband and I stayed at "The Little Grass Shack" for 7 days in July, and had the most wonderful vacation there. The condo was extremely clean and comfortable, and had all of the amenities we needed. The welcome basket and phone call from Patricia made us feel at home from the minute we walked in. The condo was stocked with everything... boogie boards, snorkeling gear, towels, beach chairs, coolers, kitchen supplies, etc. We were able to save alot of money (and inconvenience) by not having to buy all of these things after we got there. The location was perfect-- next to the beach, close to lots of restaurants/shops, and a good central starting point to explore the rest of the island. We would recommend this property for anyone else travelling to Maui. We had such a wonderful experience there and are already planning our trip back!
Fantastic home away from home
We spent 2 great weeks in Maui with this condo as our home away from home for our family of 4 which includes 2 young children. Everything was as presented and more. The owners were pleasant, accommodating and responsive. We really appreciated the cleanliness and complete accessories in the condo...from a fully stocked kitchen to lots of beach equipment. The complex was perfectly located, quiet and well run. We felt very comfortable, safe and enjoyed our stay immensely! We would easily recommend this to anyone wishing a relaxed stay in Maui.
The Best 9 Days in Maui
My wife and I stayed at "The Little Grass Shack" in Kihei for 9 nights. We are extremely happy with the experience that this condo provided us for our vacation on the island of Maui. This condo had everything that we needed and more. The views from the condo, particularly the lanai, are absolutely spectacular. It is a great place to listen to the birds, drink that early morning coffee, and look out into the ocean. The condo itself had everything that we needed. We made great use of the bodyboards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and beach towels. We just left everything in our car and would then walk directly across the street to Kamaole II beach for the day. It is about a 2 minute walk from the steps of the condo to the beach. We made many meals in the condo and there was never a time when we were looking for something. There is also a very nice pool near the condo. The pool was large, always very clean, and never busy. The laundry services available were also close and very accessible. This condo is also in a perfect location as it is located in the great town of Kihei. You are within walking distance to many beaches, shops, and restaurants. The best part of our experience with this condo were the owners. The owners of this condo live nearby and are there to make sure that your stay in Maui is great! I would definitely recommend "The Little Grass Shack" to anyone wanting to visit the island of Maui!

Relax in comfort with aloha spirit
We have stayed in 3 different condos on Maui and prefer this one at Kihei Kai Nani.(KKN)The condo is very comfortable and clean. We love to sit on the patio in the morning,have coffee, listen to the birds, look at the ocean, read the paper. The condo has a real peaceful ambiance. The surroundings of plumeria trees, yellow hibiscus and fuschia bougainvillea are beautiful. The pool laundry room and barbeque area are very clean. There is an organic herb garden for your use in the back.
The condo is well-equipped with everything, including any and all of your beach and pool needs. Did not use the air conditioner- the trade winds in the late afternoon were refreshing with the windows open and we had very good sleeping weather with the fans on low.
The owner and the KKN Staff were very helpful and accommodating.
We have recommended the condo to several friends and we plan to return over and over again the good Lord willing.
We reallly like , Cafe O Lei, Maui Tacos, Maui Thai, Fred's, Stella Blues, Tommy Bahamas, Cheeseburgers in Paradise- fine dining in Wailea at Spago, Capische?, Duo. Hula Grille in Kaanapali, Pioneer Inn -LaHaina. The magic show (Warren and annabelle) in Lahaina is a treat- also the Luau at the Grand Wailea is a must see.
Delightful Condo at the Right Price
With an ocean view, close proximity to the beaches and shopping - couldn't have asked for more. The condo is well equipped and the owner is very accommodating. I recommend this condo to those who appreciate value.
Wonderful week in paradise
Seriously the best yet!! I have been coming to Maui each year for the last five years, and depending on who I travel with and what our needs were, I have ended up at a couple of other establishments. Both of them were great, I really thought the value and location of those would be hard to beat. Well I can say they have been beat! This time I was traveling with my 5 year old nephew. Having never traveled with kids before I wanted to be someplace located near the beach but also with good accessibility to activities and services? Well the "little grass shack” was even more than we had expected. It's so comfortable that each day when we came back from the day's activities to relax, it was like coming home, not like some stuffy hotel room.
As someone who does a ton of research before traveling and has stayed in other places on Maui, I can say that this was the best value yet! My sister must have stated at least 5 times that it was perfect and so much more than she anticipated. It really does have a real ocean view from the comfortable balcony. A fantastic not overcrowded beach is right across the street. The unit itself is exactly as pictured, everything you would need was available and more. The grounds are beautiful. And you can walk to many different restaurants and shops. The owners were great also, very attentive and available. Oh and one more item that is of great importance to me...it's very quiet, so much so I could hear the ocean at night. I will definitely return next year if I am so lucky...and my nephew asked me the other night if we could go back next weekend? I wish!
Al & Betsy
Wonderful time in Maui!!!
We had a wonderful stay in Maui at the "Little Grass Shack". Very short walk to the beach for sunsets and morning walk. You couldn't ask for a better location for a reasonable price. There was plenty of space for parking. We would recommend this to anyone and hope to be back ourselves.
Donna & Brian
Aloha! Thank you so much for your hospitality. We had a wonderful four weeks in paradise, which was made even better by the cleanliness and conveniences of staying in your condo. We loved being on the third floor and in an end unit, with views of the ocean and palm trees from all the windows and lanai. It is a well equipped unit that provides everything you need for a beach vacation such as chairs, boogie boards, coolers, umbrella and towels. This complex has a nice large pool, clean laundry facilties, a herb garden and a library book exchange for the guests. The location is great for people who want to be across the street from the beach and is within a fifteen minute drive from at least ten other beaches in south Maui that have wonderful snorkelling and fun boogie boarding. The whale watching and awesome sunsets are an added bonus to this location. We will be back! Mahalo.

Kkn Unit # 340
We have stayed at Kihei Kai Nani seven times over the years and this is the nicest unit we have ever stayed in. It will be tough to settle for less after this. Spectacular view from the lanai, and being a corner unit with extra windows made for a perfect sleeping temperature at night. A+ with us! Everything you need for a complete Maui experience.
Morgan Hill, CA
Nice place to stay!
My husband and I stayed here for a week. The location of the codo is very convenient for traveling to all parts of the island. Everything was very clean and comfortable. It was great to have beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas and ice chests available to use. The complex is very quiet at night. You can even hear the waves as you sleep. :)
Our new favorite unit in KKN
We have stayed in Kihei Kai Nani about once a year, typically around Christmas, since our oldest daughter was born, six years ago (now we have a second daughter as well). Our latest stay was in KKN 340 in December 2010.
We know Maui fairly well, and our favorite spot is the KKN complex. Having stayed in several other units, we find KKN 340 has the ideal orientation. As an end unit, it has additional windows, and they face the ocean (with a gorgeous ocean and sunset view). The lanai faces South, allowing for a good view on both the mountains and the ocean. We typically sit on the lanai for breakfast, lunch and dinner whenever we are not eating out. Breakfast on the lanai benefits from the early morning sun, lunch is mostly shaded from the harsh noon sun, and dinner is a pleasure watching the sunset.
The unit is well appointed, with beach chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie boards and other beach essentials. The kitchen is updated, there are flat screen Tv's in the living room and bedroom, and the place has a nice welcoming feeling about it. There are (quiet and smooth) ceiling fans in both rooms. In the living room there is an aC unit. Nothing seems to be missing from what one would need to have a pleasant stay.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay tremendously. Kkn 340 is now our favorite unit in our favorite condo complex. We plan to returning there on our next trip to Maui.

"My husband and I had our honeymoon here and we stayed for 8 days. The condo is very well equipped from body boards, tonnes of towels, beach equipment, to spices and oil for cooking (which you probably don't want to buy a whole bottle for your short stay and then waste luggage space!) Bed was a king size. There's an air conditioner in the living room but we never had to use it (in October) We just turned on the fans, opened some windows and let the sea breeze in. Every night was a good nights rest as the resort is quiet. Amazing to wake up with the sun shining, birds chirping and white curtains fluttering. The resort had coin laundry facilities which we used, free parking (just have to get the pass from the office and they even gave us a information package. They also do a good job in keeping up a nice garden - flowers everywhere! Patricia, our hostess, went out of her way to prepare a welcome basket and called us to check up on us. I highly recommend this place for those who would enjoy a quiet relaxing vacation."
The happy honeymooners
The 'little grass shack' was perfect for our honeymoon!
We very much enjoyed the clean, friendly feel of the condo. The location was perfect; walking distance to the beach, resturants and small shops yet set back off the main road. We really enjoyed the pool as well as all the little things that made our stay so convient; the beach towels, bags, cooler, boogies boards and inforamtion books on the island and what is has to offer. If we are ever back to Maui we will definately stay again. Thanks for the perfect get away for 2!
All-In-One Condo with View
I enjoyed my stay in this wonderfully equipped unit with a great view in Kihei. It's located across the road from a great beach with two other beaches five minutes away. Stores, restaurants, and snorkeling/scuba rental companies are just a short walk from the unit. There is even a natural food/health store for organic options. This unit had plenty of kitchen utensils, drink ware, and dishes to make and serve meals. I was lucky to find a few useful condiments in the fridge to help save on the food budget. I have rented units in Oahu that barely provide a fork. I found the unit to be clean and welcoming. I was very happy to find ice in the freezer ready to cool my drink and me upon arrival. The beach toy closets are full of useful items for playing or picnicking at the beach. The complex is landscaped with plumeria and hibiscus bushes, palm trees and is neatly manicured and clean. I would recommend this unit to travelers going to Maui because it is a great value for your money.
A Great Find!
My bf and I absolutely loved our stay here. The condo was clean and spacious with fully-equipped kitchen to make it our home away from home. It got everything we wanted and more -- like beach bag, beach towels and even mats! The location was central -- a few steps away from the nice beaches of Kihei, food and rental shops for water.
I'm quite skeptical about pics I see online being too-good-to-be-true but this place is definitely what-you-see-is what-you-get. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Maui.
Lastly, we got a chance to meet Patricia since we extended our stay for one more day and what a very pleasant lady! Thanks Patricia =)
A home away from home--at a great price
This condo was a great deal. It was equipped with all the comforts of home and the owners provided all of the beach/activity equipment so you did not have to worry about how you were going to lug a cooler or boogie board home on the plane. It was clean and organized when we arrived; and the owners were kind and thoughful enough to leave us a welcome basket (since it was our honeymoon) with a handwritten note congradulating and welcoming us (I truely felt the meaning of aloha with the way I was treated by the owners) who also called on our arrival date just to make sure there was nothing else we needed. Also nice compared to other condos I have stayed in on other vacations was that the owners are local so if something bad were to happen you could deal with them directly rather than a 3rd party or a managment company.
The beach across the street was one of the best swimming beaches we visted during our stay (and we visited a lot of beaches). The complex itself was quiet and we were able to leave the windows open at night without traffic/people noise keeping us awake. The aparment was conviently near restaurants, a Safeway and Longs (about 3-4 mins drive time), and the highway. Overall a great condo and a a great deal, with owners who I felt would go out of their way to make sure your stay was enjoyable.
Kihei Kai Nani #340 is a conveniently located unit near Kamaole II beach in Maui. The unit has a well equipped kitchen and can host a family of four comfortably. The living room has air-conditioning and the bedroom has a fan and sea-breeze! The property is very well landscaped and has a good pool. The owners are very helpful and leave a welcome gift for you in the condo! We were very pleased with the accommodations and the location can't be beat. The only change I would suggest is adding solar shades in the bedroom.
Affordable Condo with all the amenities and Captivating Views!
What more could you ask for than a completely equipped condo with all the amenities (including beach chairs, ice chest, boogie boards - everything - even chocolate covered macadamia nuts!)?? Then there's the breathtaking views of sunsets and the ocean! On top of all that, it's affordable!
My wife and I had an amazing time staying in the Little Grass Shack. The place was very clean and the owners really offer a lot of fun activities (like bogey boards, football, frisbees, and beach chairs) for the guest to enjoy. The owners are great people who only want to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. The location is nice. It is in the heart of Kihei but still have lots of privacy. There are lots of shops and restaurants that are in walking distance to the place. Also, there is a public beach right across the street from the resort. I would highly recommend this place to my family and friends. My wife and I hope to return soon.

You will love your stay at the "Little Grass Shack"
Let me begin by saying that Patricia and Jefferson Stillwell's "Little Grass Shack" in Kihei on the island of Maui is not, in fact, a shack. Nor will you find any grass unless you look down from your lovely balcony (furnished with a table, chairs and a delightful chaise lounge perfectly suited for reading novels or travel guides found indoors on a stocked corner bookshelf). The condo is well furnished, impeccably tidy, clean and amply supplied with EVERYTHING that you will need to enjoy your stay in Maui. We mixed cocktails with the blender, had English muffins with locally made jams fresh from the toaster, and indulged in Baileys from the Foodland down the road every morning in our steaming cups of 100% Mauiian coffee (also available locally). The fully tiled shower enclosure was fabulous, easily accessible if you are stiff from a long day or a long life of walking, windsurfing, or jogging along the beach and other pathways. If, like this newlywed couple, you hail from cooler climates, you may want to turn on the air conditioner during the first day or night following your arrival at the Little Grass Shack. After that, we turned off the a/c and simply opened all of the windows (of which there are a GREAT many!) in the condo, let the celing fans whirl, and were thrilled to be woken in the morning by the local birds singing the praises of yet another beautiful day in a beautiful place.
Upon arriving, you will find a hand-written note and all the supplies that you will need (including beach gear!) to enjoy your time in Maui. The owners are available on short notice, and are very accommodating if anything should arise (as occurred on our last night at the condo). You can walk to local grocers, a vast array oeateries, snorkeling and other rental equipment providers.
You will love your stay in Maui if you book your accommodations at the Stillwells' "Little Grass Shack". We would happily return and readily recommend this rental property.
The perfect quiete and relaxing Stay
If you want somewhere that wont cost you an arm and a leg, that is fully equipped with all you need, that has a great owner that will help you anytime with just about everything, that has a nice balcony where you can have breackfast, that is close to nice beaches where you can snorkel or just swim or go to restaurants just by walking, that has windows everywhere that you can leave open and hear the birds early morning and the shore and thus be completely relaxed and energetic everyday, then this is the place for you. Keep in mind that in Kihei, everything is a bit cheaper than some of the other close by towns that are at the shore as well, so you will save even more. Is there more luxurious/upclass places/towns, sure there is, however, i feel you can visit those by yourself with a rented car, and save that money to come back again if you want. Thank you Patricia for everything, you really helped us get the best out of everything, will definetly recommend staying for anyone with the above criteria.

Great stay at Patricia's "Little Grass Shack"
We spent the month of April in Maui at the "Little Grass Shack". From day 1 we felt right at home. The condo was exactly what we were hoping for. It was clean and had all the amenities that we required. The location was super. It was close to great restaurants, shops and of course, a great beach. We always felt safe and found everyone (staff and fellow tenants)to be very friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone and we expect to return soon.

What a place to stay and relax
This unit was very clean (which is very unusual) and very well stocked, the unit was not lacking a thing and as a bonus you can sit on the lani and see the whales go by.We got a great breeze through the unit with all the windows, so it was never too hot. We we right across the road from the best beach on Maui, and also lots of shopping near by and great places to eat out. we found that with the B/Q. and the great kitchen, we did not go out too often for dinner. 340 is a great unit and we will be going back soon.

Great Location in Kihei!
This lovely third floor, one-bedroom condo provides easy access to great restaurants, beach walks, swimming, shopping, golf - everything Kihei/Maui has to offer. The unit overlooks the awesome swimming pool, has 2 tv's,CD/DVD player, internet access and the king-size bed is very comfortable. Also being the end unit, the tradewinds were perfect and the a/c was rarely needed. We also really appreciated the beach supplies and the well-equipped kitchen. Patricia was such a delight to work with in booking her 'Little grass Shack'. Mahalo!
It was Great place

Heaven on earth
I have stayed in other units at KKN and found the Stillwell unit the best. Wonderful ocean views with extra large windows that gives you a speculator view. Great price and the personal service is warm and inviting. The unit was clean and inviting. I am spoiled and will never settle fo anything less. I was totally impressed., You can walk to restaurants and shopping. The ocean and sand are steps away.
no nice we rented it twice
unit 340, also called the "little grass shack" by its' owners, is a one bedroom condo available in Kihei, HI. The unit is in the Kai Nani complex just across the street from the Kam II beach. Kai Nani is a casual complex with a nice pool and gas grills located around the complex for common use. Parking is easy and convenient.
unit 340 is a corner unit on the top floor (3rd floor) with an unobstructed ocean view from the lanai, the living room windows, and the bedroom windows. the views are spectacular and during whale season, whale activity can be seen with the naked eye and, in great detail, with binoculars or a spotting scope.
the king bed is extremely comfortable and it was very quiet at night--- with the only sound being the sound of the surf hitting the beach.
unit 340 is equipped with everything you can think of for a great beach vacation. if you choose to prepare your own meals, the unit has just about anything you might need.
the beach is a couple of hundred yards away. it is a great relatively uncrowded beach (even in high season) and the whale activity you can see from the beach is astonishing.
we liked unit 340 so much we rented it again while we were there.
