ALOHA and Welcome to our Island Paradise! 🌴🌸Maui No Ka Oi.This C-601 corner studio unit is on the TOP FLOOR of Kihei Akahi right across from the beautiful Kamaole Beach II, in very sunny South Kihei. You have Privacy and Security of a Top Floor and Corner unit with direct Front Facing Ocean views. Once you walk in, you are embraced by the fragrant tropical breeze and the gorgeous views of the blue Pacific with views of Molokini, Lanai, and Kahoolawe spread out in front of you. Kihei Akahi is beautifully landscaped and has 28 varieties of native flowers and plants that only enhance your total island experience - truly a UNIQUE tropical resort !

Not only does this corner Penthouse studio unit offer the most INCREDIBLE Front Facing Ocean views, along with Security and Privacy, it was completely remodeled with Granite countertops, travertine flooring throughout, crown molding, a walk-in shower, top of the line kitchen stainless steel appliances, new patio furniture on the lanai, new kitchenware, new full size washer/dryer, and new lighting - everything you need to make your stay as comfortable and luxurious as possible, as well as free High- Speed WiFi with a direct secure connection to the condo.

We have the largest A/C unit allowed for our size condo, as well as a ceiling fan above the bed and a new Vornado Power Tower Air Fan circulator which keeps the condo very refreshing and cool along with a quiet operation and as it is portable, with a remote, you can move it around so you always have direct air on you at all times. Of course, the cool island breezes adds to your relaxation.

On our private lanai, you have a full on 180 degree unobstructed ocean view, and amazing sunsets. The top corner unit has an additional side window which a tropical breeze flows through.

As the condo is only steps away from the beach, you can enjoy your day surfing, snorkeling, sunbathing, swimming - or just relaxing at the pool or beach! Let the Island spirit into your heart where it will find a home. After a busy day at the beach, by the pool, or practicing yoga at a class nearby, you can spend a restful evening on the lanai, sipping tropical drinks and watching the ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE sunset, or enjoy the variety of nightlife as we are within walking distance to many shops, bars and restaurants. South Kihei has everything. You can even see the whales during Whale Watching season from our lanai. 🐳 At night, just let go completely and relax in the Queen size bed with a comfortable new posturepedic mattress (not a Murphy bed)--- let yourself be at complete ease and your mind and body totally relax while listening to the ocean waves gently rock you to sleep.

This condo has been recently remodeled and the spirit and essence of Hawaii is evident throughout for you to be fully part of the island lifestyle. 🌈 We have it fully stocked, with everything you could need to make your Maui experience as carefree and easy as possible. Enjoy watching TV or DVD's on a 32 inch flatscreen TV with a library of DVD's after a busy day at the beach, swimming, playing tennis or golfing at one of the many nearby highly rated golf courses, or bike down the slope of Mt. Haleakala. If you like to shop and enjoy fine dining, the 'Shops at Wailea' are only minutes away. Maui offers something for everyone! Many restaurants and bars are within walking distance as an added convenience.

We absolutely love this unique property because of the outstanding views, great location, and privacy and security of being a top floor corner unit; the views are really Amazing! The new appliances, upgraded features and luxurious interior all add to the total island lifestyle. The sunsets are so awesome AND you don't even have to leave the comfort of your lanai to see them.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Suzi’s place is awesome! We had nothing but a great time! The apartment was nicely appointed and conveniently located near to restaurants and shopping. Right off of the beach, with all the beach gear provided for your stay. We hope to get back soon! Maybe they will build a road from Kehei to Kula by then! :> )

Best View Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Maui many times, but this was our favorite place to stay. The view is AMAZING! We had our meals on the balcony every day. The condo is clean, comfortable, and has a good location. It is directly across from a nice beach, and close to restaurants and shopping. The owner was very helpful, and attentive. We highly recommend this condo. You'll absolutely love it!

Killer sunset views, such a convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

The owners thought of everything one needs for a worry free beach vacation. Kitchen is well stocked, there was even coffee for our first morning, blow dryer, shampoo, beach chairs, etc. The only minor issue was the cooling system. It did operate, but when there was no breeze, the unit got a little too warm at night. It was not a big deal to us, but if central AC is necessary to YOU, then you may not be happy for your stay. Overall the unit was wonderful!! We will come back!
