Comments from guests who have stayed in my personal condo C618:
Hi Kathy, I just wanted to write to thank you for such wonderful accommodations in Kihei. You are a thoughtful and considerate person. There was nothing you hadn’t thought of to make our stay more pleasant. The view was beautiful, the condo was homey and the driving incredible. Thank you so very much. We will be back possibly next year, but more probably ’06.
I have already recommended several others to contact you. I also wanted to commend you once more on your artwork. It is lovely and now that I have seen its inspiration, I can appreciate it even more. Once again thank you. Sandra and Chad, Pasadena, MD.
'Aloha Kathy! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo...very nicely decorated and a wonderful location:) We had a great time in Maui and will definitely be back again someday. We kept very busy seeing many places and spending the last few days snorkeling a lot and enjoying the vacation.

About the owner: Picture Beautiful Kamaole Beach Park II sunset! Enjoy this wonderful beach and stay in our beautiful ocean view condo directly across the street at The popular Kihei Akahi Resort.
Kathy McCartney is the owner of MauiVision Rentals. MauiVision became a reality and a business starting with Ms. McCartney's personal condo C618. The idea to start her own business came about while working for her friends Sharene and Harrison Klein of Hawaii-Holiday. Her friends were in need of a vacation and Kathy volunteered to house sit their beautiful Big Island home and business office. The Klein's have been a guiding force in helping Kathy get started with her business.
'MauiVision is a business I love because I get to share the Aloha Spirit, the beauty of the land, and talk story with people from around the world. It is nice to know that we can contribute to someone's Hawaiian vacation experience in a positive way. We love to hear back from our happy guests.'
Kathy used to live on the island of Oahu with her US Navy family when she was a young girl. Her family later moved to Southern California. She knew that one day she would return to Hawaii, the place she fell in love with long ago. Taking a leap of faith she purchased her Maui condo June 2002 this was the beginning of fulfilling her prophecy of once again returning to Hawaii soil.
Kathy is an artist who is inspired by the beauty of the islands. She captures the beauty she experiences with oil paint on canvas. 'Painting the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands is another way for me to feel close to this special place I call home. I moved to Maui full-time year 2012 and paint the Hawaiian landscape and people.
Why the Owner Chose Kihei Akahi: When I began my search for Maui home I kept repeating to myself location, location location! The realtor I worked with at the time told me how wonderful the Kihei Akahi Resort is in terms of attracting repeat visitors. So after viewing several properties over the Internet I bought my home away from home not having viewed it in person. I took a big chance to follow my dream to Maui and two months after the purchase, I did finally get a chance to visit my new home. I was nervous and also very happy about my decision.
The location is wonderful like the realtor and others I interviewed expressed. We are directly across the street from desirable Kamaole Beach Park II and other great beaches that connect to ours. Everything is nearby and within walking distance of our condo: beach, restaurants, health food store, yoga studio, entertainment, shopping etc.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: My particular property is a top floor unit away from the elevators and road so it is in a nice quiet section of the complex. As the years have gone I have made many new friends in Kihei. Our home owners association is one of the best. Our property grounds are well maintained and cared for. The staff is wonderful and faithful and many of them have been working at the Kihei Akahi for years.
My condo is not just a vacation rental it is our home away from home. We have many repeat visitors who feel this is a beautiful place to vacation because it is not cold and sterile like a hotel room, it is warm and inviting.
C618 my home, is located on the top floor of building C at the Kihei Akahi Resort. Here you will enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Mount Haleakala, Kaho'olawe Island, Molokini Crater, tropical gardens, and glowing sunset skies. Not only will you experience more peace and quiet on the upper floor but we get a nice breeze off the ocean. We provide our guests with free Wi-Fi Internet cable access for their laptops. This beautiful home has recently been updated with new textured ceilings/walls, new paint and Crown Molding; tropical furniture; island style artwork and Asian accent pieces. The décor has many rich colors sure to please the eye. Kathy's home has new tile floors throughout the condo, new cabinetry and counter tops. This unit has new AC (June 08); new side by side refrigerator ice maker with water dispenser.
If my home is not available I help rent other properties at the Kihei Akahi Resort and a home in Haiku, and several beautiful properties in Ka’anapalai.
