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 gorgeus views of blue Pacific with the 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 in 2012. Granite countertops, travertine flooring thoughout, crown molding, a walk-in shower, new top of the line kitchen stainless steel appliances, new patio furniture on the lanai, new kitchenware, a ceiling fan above the bed, a/c, 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 Wi-Fi.

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 new 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 brand new 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 are within walking distance as an added convenience.

Beautiful cute condo in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is super cute and updated. Awesome location you really can't beat it. A 3 min walk across the street and you're at one of the most popular beaches in Kihei. An endless amount of food options. This condo in particular was special because Suzi provides snorkels boogie boards beach towels and a cooler and chairs so you have everything you need to enjoy the area. The bathroom was really clean and a super nice shower. Washer and dryer are right in the bathroom. The view on the lanai is absolutely lovely and a nice place to sit out and have morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. The beach across the street is awesome! Pretty much anything around south maui is within a half hour drive and this place is right in the middle of everything. We loved it!! Would totally love to go back!

Perfect little "getaway" spot in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kihei Akahi was wonderful! The view is absolutely AMAZING! Sunsets from the balcony are gorgeous while you enjoy some food and drinks. The penthouse itself is well kept, clean and stocked you just bring the food. The owners are wonderful! We communicated through email and they made sure everything was set up and ready for us. We will return in the near future!

I keep coming back to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I've lost count of how many times I have stayed in Suzi and Bryan's unit at Kihei Akahi, but I make it my annual vacation for many reasons. The Riley's are a delight to rent from; they respond to emails promptly, they provide helpful information to make your stay the best it can be, and they are incredibly thoughtful. I am so appreciative of the welcome email that they send the day after you arrive. The unit is located in close proximity to the best that Kihei has to offer. The unit is well stocked with what you need and it has THE BEST VIEW you will find. The ocean sounds and the breeze at night will lull you sleep!!

I didn't have to use the air conditioning on this most recent trip even though it was warmer than usual. The ceiling fan and the natural breeze keep the condo at a very comfortable temperature.

Mahalo to Suzi and Bryan for yet another amazing vacation <3

Fantastic view and location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the condo was nice. We felt there could have been a couple of minor improvements to make it even better (having to empty the a/c drip pan was a nuisance, and the kitchen utensils could be better). Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a huge plus, as well as having beach chairs, etc. right there to use!
