Recent South Kihei (Kamaole I & II Beaches Area) reviews

"This was a family vacation for us. The Condo was absolutely beautiful. It had all the beach toys we needed, including boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach chairs and toys for the little ones. Beds were comfortable, nit was very clean. TV's in all three bedrooms and living room. Close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We have stayed at Shores of Maui four other times in different units and this is by far the BEST. The owner was easy to contact."

"Arriving to this lovely condo at midnight was a treat. It was so welcoming to see the owners' family photos framed and hanging on walls, plus their obvious good care of this 'home from home' was so impressive.
I loved their 'renos'. For the Akahi, which I have stayed in many times over the years, their bedroom was bright; wallpaper colour and design themes to blend with bed linens. Wallpaper on the wall where the small, high bedroom windows are situated made the room feel larger. Having the vanity outside the toilet and shower room was clever. Everything is designed to make the condo look spacious.
Views from the lanai are great. The web ppictures are true.
I like the fact that pets are not acceptable in the Akahi...
... hallways/elevators/stairs are clean and without dog smells and hairs !
I would return if available for future trips to Maui.
I was in D410 for 4 weeks of June, 2015.
Really good value for the money :)
Thank you Bill and Dolores, you were so conscientious to talk with and very helpful.

Recommend for everyone..."

Affordable, Great Location, Comfy Bed, Well Stocked!
"My husband and I left the kids behind for a 5-year anniversary trip and it was truly a great getaway!
We arrived at Kihei Akhai at about midnight in our arrival date. The late check-in process was quick and painless. The condo was perfectly located for the activities we would want to do during our stay: beach, pool, golf, scuba, tennis, etc. It was also close to restaurants and groceries. We would say the location was "excellent" and that is the most important thing to us.
The condo was by no means spotless, but it was clean enough. I knew what to expect based on the pictures provided in the ad and the pictures were accurate. I was, however thrown off by the following statement in the ad:
"It has been completely renovated in the last year. Almost everything in this beautiful unit is brand new." As a renovator and landlord myself, I feel that this is a deceiving statement. The only thing that we could see was "new"ish is the carpet in the living room and bedroom and maybe some furniture. Everything else was very very dated. Coming back to my comment re: cleanliness, I felt that it was as clean as it could have been considering the sheer age of the shower, counters, tile, appliances, etc.
The condo was well stocked with beach gear, which is something that we appreciated! Also, we were provided with plenty of towels and cooking utensils.
The air conditioning cooled the living room and kitchen very well and with the assistance of the fan in the bedroom we were also a good temperature when we slept. There is a window above the closets in the bedroom that leads out to the hallway and it is not a fixed pane of glass. There wasn't very much sound proofing from the hallway and when someone walked down the hallway talking it sounded like they were in our room! However, this seemed to be a common form of "window" throughout Maui.
Our flight did not leave until 11:30pm on our check out date so I requested a late checkout. I was denied which was a slight disappointment. It would have been nice to have a nap and shower in the early afternoon to make the most of our day. Just a suggestion for future renters: request your late checkout on your first day. Maybe they will be more accommodating?
Anyways, we had a fabulous time in Maui and enjoyed Kihei Akhai very much. We would stay in this property again and would suggest it to others. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your condo, perhaps pay the $200+/night for luxury. if not, this is perfect! Thanks!"
