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

"My husband and I had such a wonderful, relaxing 2 week holiday at this comfortable, full equipped condo close to the beach and scenic walks in every direction. The condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our beach days and exploring adventures. The owners were so helpful and made everything very easy to arrange and the on site manager was always available to answer any questions we had. Truly an enchanting holiday in every way. Thanks, Mair and Tony."

"This condo is just perfect! It is fully equipped with anything you may need during your stay. Granite in the kitchen with stainless steel appliances, bathrooms are beautifully tiled and the view!!! Wow...awesome view looking right on the ocean. You can't ask for a better condo. Right over the street are restaurants and shops so you don't have to go very far to get anything.The beach that the property is on, is steps away and the swimming and snorkeling is right there. The owners, Christine & Ron, were so helpful right from the start of booking my trip and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with them.
This condo is just perfect....what more can I say!"

"The condo was very clean, comfortable with many extra kitchen utensils & dishes. We enjoyed our stay & have booked again for next year. Had a nice partial ocean view & sunset. Quiet part of building until rowdies moved in next door thank goodness they never stayed long."
