SOME COMMENTS FROM OUR GUESTS INCLUDE:
June 2009 - 'Hi Faye. I wanted to let you know that Maui is the best and the condo was wonderful. My husband and I loved it and we felt very at home. Plus it is located in the middle of everything. Also the landscape, pool, and assistance in scheduling activities were wonderful. We did everything and things we never thought we could do. Thanks again for sharing your space and I have put Maui on my list to return to (which is rare since I always like to investigate new places).
May 2009 - 'We had a great time in Hawaii and we LOVED your condo. We cannot wait to go back again. Thank you again'.
'Your place was like a home away from home. It was so comfy and very tastefully decorated'.
'We did have a wonderful time and really enjoyed ourselves. Your apartment is really comfortable and very convenient.'
'Thank you so much for the use of your condo! It was beautifully decorated, full of very helpful amenities, and a gorgeous view. We saw whales from the lanai everyday!'
'We had a wonderful time in Maui and your place was great. It was very homey and I loved the décor, just right for the location.'

Not What It Seems
Not What It Seems
One week prior to arriving at this condo, I was emailed that there were electrical problems with a circuit breaker, and that the washing machine sometimes did not work. Faye had apologized for this issue and I said no problem thanks for letting me know. Upon arrival, there was a problem with a circuit breaker tripping. Microwave did not work, washing machine worked after circuit was tripped. Faye sent out an electrician to look at the problem. Thereafter washing machine worked and mircrowave. What concerned me was the dryer. It smelled after gas when opening, and made a very loud noise, and did not shut off at end of cycle. Again, Faye apologized, and we agreed to partial refund for the inconvience of drying my clothes on the lanai On 8/25/2013 Faye emailed me that I would receive back for a refund. Which was basically nothing. She claims that I departed the unit and left it in "filth", and also claims I traveled with more than 2 expected occupants and therefore is penalizing me. I was also told I was the worst tenant she has ever had. Upon departure I spoke with the cleaning company she uses, and asked them if I met their specifications for leaving the unit in good condition. Yes they said. All garbage removed, dirty linens placed in one pile, swept, all food items removed from frigerator. Swept floors and wiped down bathroom sink. Loaded dishwasher. Turned off lights, electricity. I believe I was told all of this as an excuse to not refund my money for the broken applicance that was not either repaired or replaced in the 4 weeks that I stayed at this unit. This unit was partially maintained. While it looked remodeled and updated the washer and dryer were very old 20+ yrs. I would not recommend this property to no one.

Owner response: We are very responsive owners. Our focus has always been to maintain our rental condo to the same standards we would want for ourselves. We love spending time at our condo, as do our family and friends. Approximately 75% of our bookings are return renters, most returning every year. Our VRBO ad accurately represents our condo. I’m happy to report that the circuit breaker issue was resolve swiftly & easily by an electrician – the microwave had been moved, and plugged into wrong outlet, causing overload. Upon failure of the dryer (not the washer), we purchase a new stacking unit immediately, unfortunately, there was a 4-6 week wait on the dryer. As to the negative renter, I addressed all of Christine’s issue in an email to her. She was, indeed, an extremely difficult person. She harassed me via numerous emails, and phone calls. The staff of the Kihei Akahi Manager’s Office indicated to us that she visited their office often to issue a complaint. She made several totally inappropriate requests of my cleaning service staff. Upon Christine’s departure, my cleaning service charged three times the normal cleaning fee to restore the unit to a rentable condition.
We just returned from a perfect 2 week stay at Faye and John's wonderful condo. They were so helpful and made booking their place totally stress free. Everything is just as pictured and has all the comforts of home. This is our 3rd trip to Maui and this is the most cozy place we've stayed. I especially appreciated having a washer, dryer to use. The Kihei Akahi property is quiet, well maintained and the landscaping is beautiful. We are avid snorklers and were pleased to discover that some of the best snorkeling is right across the street (Kamaole II)!! What really excited us is that you can often see sea turtles there along with the beautiful fish. There are some wonderful restaurants and shopping just a block away. We did everything from hiking at IAO to driving the Hana hwy and so much more!! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. The only complaint we have is having to leave. Thank you so much Faye and John for the use of your wonderful little piece of heaven. I hope to go back in the near future and have the pleasure of staying here again. I absolutely reccomend staying here. Aloha and mahalo.

2nd time staying at the condo and just like the last time it was perfect. The location in Kihei cannot be beat. Walk across the street for one beach or drive 5-10 minutes and you have all of Wailea's beaches at your disposal also. The condo was clean, well stocked with beach supplies and all around great.

I stayed at Faye and John's in May. What a wonderful condo! It has everything you need or want from kitchen supplies to beach accessories. Very comfortable and roomy. It has been nicely updated in the kitchen, bathroom and living areas. The grounds of the building are immaculate. The building has a fantastic location...right across the street from the beach. It is close to Wailea, yet lots of Kihei restaurants of shop just next door or down the street. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone (and if you are a female traveling solo, as I was, you will feel very safe and secure). Feel free to email if you want more info.

This is a fabulous place to stay! It's modern, clean, and very close to the beach and amenities. The condo is complete with all you will need during your stay. It is equipped with games, puzzles, movies, even beach toys four our kids (which was a saving grace), beach chairs, beach umbrella, coolers, masks and fins, and the best part a cart to pull it all to the beach. Thank you so much for providing a home away from home for all your guests. You really have thought of everything. We can't wait to come back! Mahalo!

We stayed here for one wonderful week in July. Faye and John provide a lovely,spotlessly clean condo which will not disappoint you. We were so happy with all the amenities&location. Faye was a wonderful correspondant even calling us upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed. Our highest recommendation for a lovely place to stay.

Faye and John were incredible hosts. They thought of every amenity to make our visit special. Just pack your toothbrush and bathing suit...everything else is here. This is one of the best priced secrets in Maui! -Sandra Garner, Rialto, CA
