Central Kihei begins just north of Waipuilani Rd and goes down to Maui Gardens. It's only the distance of about 1 mile on South Kihei Road but that 1 mile packs a lot of convenience. In this stretch you will find the Azeka Mall, the US Post Office, Long's Shopping Center, Piilani Village off of Pi'ikea Ave (which includes Safeway, Starbucks and many other shops), Times Market, a number of miscellaneous businesses off of Lipoa Street and much, much more.
The beauty of Central Kihei is that you get all of that convenience within walking distance but you still have the advantage of North Kihei's shorter commute times and you are not far from South Kihei's gorgeous beaches, parks and other ammenities.
