Looking to beat the heat of a North American summer? Want to escape the winter Down Under? Here's your chance at an unbeatable price, in a true home-away-from-home!
THINK ON IT: a cozy, fully-appointed place to call your own in Kihei, with the warm days, afternoon trade winds and peaceful evenings to give you the True Meaning of Aloha.
Furnished in a tropical theme, it's the perfect home base for beach-bumming, meeting new friends by the pool, or exploring the diverse features of this unique Paradise. You'll come home to a king-size bed in the bedroom, queen-size sofa-bed in the living room, deluxe kitchen and 1 bathroom, with BBQ, two pools and tennis courts on the grounds.
It gets better: one of the world's most magnificent beaches is literally at the foot of your driveway! Kamaole welcomes you with its soft, soft sand and water that's warm even first thing for that early morning swim! Who knows? You may find yourself in the company of sea turtles or fish you only see in doctors' offices. But mostly, it's a great place to 'hang loose, braddah!'
You're walking distance from neat little eateries and shops, as you settle into Maui's 20-mph-on-the-main-street lifestyle. Cooking 'at home' or on the barbecue? Safeway, Times Supermarket and Foodland are just a short drive away with everything you need for a family dinner or entertaining new-found friends.
We have views of the ocean, mountains and garden, free wi-fi and NO ROAD NOISE. Air conditioning? We have it, but who needs? The west-facing lanai catches those ocean breezes to keep you naturally cool.
Want to go up-scale? You're five minutes from Wailea. Want a slice of history from the time of Kamehameha III? Lahaina is half an hour away. Take off up-country to Kula, climb past the clouds to majestic Haleakala, take a snorkel trip to Molokini, or hit wild west Makawao, where paniolos and artists live side by side; then be home in time to hear the conch blowers bid 'aloha' to the sun for another day. Whatever your Hawai'ian adventure, our place can be your place to come home to.

About the owner: Amelia and Drew live in Vancouver BC, with 2 cats and a border terrier named Millie. We have 5 grown children who live across Canada and in Australia. We can't wait to share special moments in Maui with them and create fabulous memories in our little piece of paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Kihei Akahi: We love travelling and have seen lots of wonderful places all over the world; but when the opportunity came to visit Maui, we jumped at the chance. Wow - what a beautiful place this is. We have truly been blessed with the ability to buy this property, and we are delighted to share our family home with you.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: View - CHECK.
Beach access - CHECK.
Pool - CHECK.
Walkability: that became one of our top criteria for any place we would buy, this place has that. We walk to the beach in the morning to swim, then walk the length of the beach and come back via the road. You can walk to some neat restaurants, like Cafe O'Lei and Moose McGillicuddy's, as well as shops and 3 supermarkets. We love the farmers' markets and the weekend swap meet in Kahului is worth the drive (the Philip Soo batiks were purchased there). We also love the fact that total strangers say 'hi' on the street and that you can feel like a regular in a restaurant or bar just by coming back.
