Menehene Shores "Eagle Nest" Oceanfront Penthouse
UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP AND EXTENSIVELY REMODELED.
An oceanfront penthouse on the 6th floor, with breathtaking ocean views from both the living room and master bedroom. One of only two unique penthouses at the end of the building, it has 2 feet higher ceilings and 4 extra windows. You can see Haleakala from both bedrooms and both showers. Nobody walks past our door and the second bedroom window! Split AC system with an AC in every room.
OUR CONDO – INSPIRATION
We fell in love with this condo at the first sight. It’s a corner penthouse with Haleakala on one side looking into its 4 extra windows. Being this high with 270 degree views, we called this condo “Eagle Nest”, because it just felt this way to us. The corner of the railings outside of the front door reminds us of the famous movie scene with Jack and Rose on the bow of Titanic. But please don’t try to reenact that scene!

OUR CONDO – DETAILS
This condo is located on the South side of the building, looking to the open ocean, the island of Kahoolawe and Molokini crater. It’s on the quieter side, away from the pool and restaurant. The condo has high ceilings, lots of light and air.
The two bedrooms – Master and Guest - are symmetrically situated. Each has its small entry alcove with doors to the bedroom and the bathroom. Both bedroom closets have custom shelving system and mirrored doors.
Master bedroom has a Cal King bed – a firm Serta mattress with memory foam top. Master bathroom has a shower over a bathtub.
Guest bedroom has two extra-long Twin beds with Nectar mattresses. The two Twin XL beds can be connected into one King bed. If you want to have one King bed during your stay, let us know after you book, and the housekeeping will prepare it for you: the two beds will be connected by a special bridge so there is no gap, and you would still have two separate twin duvets on the bed. Guest bathroom has a shower with a low curb, no bathtub.
In the living room, we have a new Queen sofa sleeper with a foam mattress. Clean bedding and linens for it will be prepared in the linen closet near Master bedroom – mattress protector, duvet, sheets (fitted and flat), 4 pillows. You will need to make the bed yourself. Always put everything back to the linen closet when you close the sofa bed – the sheets left inside the mattress can break the mechanism.
We highly recommend that you purchase a travel insurance. Homey Hawaii partners with Arch RoamRight, that provides best value and excellent customer support.

Emily, stayed January 2022
We really loved the open floor plan, modern decor, corner top-floor location of the unit in the building, central location on the island and all the amenities including lots of USB ports. We appreciated that there were that there were enough beach chairs for everyone (not just 2 like other places) and the cooler was great for picnics on the beach. It was also nice to have 2 bathrooms and the single beds for kids. We ended up cooking most meals at the condo because of the pandemic, and we had everything we needed. The condo has nice ocean views, but sunsets are somewhat blocked by a few trees. Go to the roof for sunset and views of Haleakala on a clear day. Elena's place was a great base for exploring the island and really made us feel at home.

Great location and view. What a treat to be able to view some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets all from the comfort of the Airbnb.

Everything is good, the hosts very welcome guests. House is spacious. Beds are comfortable. Kitchen has good conditions. Towels are clean and enough. One thing is to point out it is next to streets. For people concerning about noising, it is noted.
Thank you very much for staying with us! To address the road noise, anywhere you stay or live on Maui, there is noise. It's either streen noise, or human/nature noise or both. The condos that are far from road noise are very much exposed to human and nature noise, so much so that we couldn't sleep in our previous "quietly located" condo because of the people talking outside in the parking during the night, walking past the bedroom windows, luggage rolling by, and don't forget the incredibly loud Maui birds that can wake the dead with the sunrise.
Now, in this condo, we peacefully sleep as londg as we want. The road creates more of a white sound, and with windows closed, nothing is heard. Because we are at the very end of the building, there is no human traffic or noise at all. During the day with windows open, there is road noise, but we consider it a lesser evil.
