Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This wonderful Kihei Akahi, 1 bedroom / 1 bath, ocean view condo has been remodeled and professionally decorated in a Hawaiian style with artwork from local artists. You'll find everything you need to relax and immerse yourself in the Aloha spirit of Maui.

The condo is perfect for special people like you who enjoy the luxury of having that first cup of coffee sitting on the lanai, watching the changing colors of the sky and ocean, smelling the scent of plumeria and listening to the birds sing. Or enjoy a Maui sunset sipping a Mai Tai before a romantic moonlight walk on the beach.

A fully equipped kitchen allows you to make your favorite meals if you choose to cook or you can walk a short distance to some of the best restaurants and shops in Kihei. Wailea is just a five minute drive for shopping and restaurants too.

Located on the 4th floor of the C building in Kihei Akahi, just 100 yards from the soft sands and warm waters of Kamaole Beach II, where you can relax on the beach, snorkel, boogie board or body surf. The wonderful tropical breeze naturally cools the condo when the windows are open. And it's not near the elevator so you'll enjoy a quiet restful sleep.

The unit has beach towels, mats, umbrella, chairs and cooler for your use. If you enjoy walking, a path along the beach connects to the Wailea resort area. There is an activity desk at the complex to help you schedule activities such as luau's, Molokini trips, etc. Since I live close-by, I have a guest book with some of my favorite Maui activities and restaurants, snorkeling spots, and beaches too.

The Kihei Akahi tennis court opens at 7:00am so you can get in that early morning game. Golf is available at one of 6 world class courses within 5-10 minutes drive.

I pride myself in maintaining the condo with very high standards with regard to aesthetic appeal and cleanliness. There is no smoking within the condo or on the lanai. No pets are allowed.

About Berney

Aloha, my name is Berney. I moved to Maui in 2007 and retired. Since then I have embraced Hawaiian culture and immersed myself in local activities. I have been a member of the Rotary Club of Kihei Sunrise and the Kihei Community Association. I am very active with the Kihei Canoe Club as a paddler and active board member. Unlike many Maui Vacation Rental condo owners, I live close by. So I can provide advice on activities, restaurants, etc.

I enjoy sharing the Kihei Akahi condo with others who want to experience Maui's aloha spirit and all it has to offer. There is a reason folks say Maui No Ka Oi (Maui is the best). Come and enjoy sunny skies, cooling trade winds, and warm clear tropical waters. See the fish and plant life that exist nowhere else on earth. Experience the vast variety of activities or just relax on the beach. Discover Aloha.

Berney purchased this condo in 2004

Why Berney chose South Maui

I purchased this Kihei Akahi condo because it is located at the best beaches in Maui and is just a mile from Wailea. Wailea is the upscale resort in South Maui where there is world class golf and tennis, fine dining, and the Shops at Wailea. But while Wailea is so close, it is also expensive. At Kihei Akahi I found excellent accommodations at a faction of the cost so my guests could spend more time enjoying all that Maui offers. And some of the best restaurants and shopping are within walking distance!

What makes this condo unique

The condo includes beach gear - umbrella, towels, ice chest, boogie boards, snorkel, mask and flippers. And having a washer/dryer in the unit allows you to pack light and possibly forego the luggage fee on your trip.

I enjoy helping guests get the most from their Maui experience. I am happy to give restaurant tips, recommendations on activities, and information on some of the best snorkel spots. As a member of the Kihei Canoe Club, I enjoy inviting guests to join me for a morning paddle in an outrigger canoe.

There are many things to do on Maui that don't cost much money or are free. I'd be happy to help you learn about them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. Thank you for your clean and well stocked condo. We appreciate this very much. The comfort and the view are awesome - especially the sunsets. The WiFi and very good selection of TV channels is also appreciated. We will be sure to recommend you to all our friends.



We enjoyed 4 very relaxing weeks and now are packing to get ready to return to the "real world" ie. -15C, work and frozen arena ice as compared to the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Have a great 2016!!! Aloha and Mahalo.

Perfect for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy here! Berney's condo is like staying at a friend's beach house... it has all the extras including snorkle gear, beach chairs, huge beach towels and a kitchen stocked with all the essentials. The place was very clean and well kept. Breakfast, lunch and dinner (sunsets!)on the lanai! This is the perfect Kihei location. We hope to return soon! Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Nice condo - great value

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice condo in a great location. Easy walking to good restaurants, and beach across the street. We rented the condo in August and didn't need the AC as there is normally a nice breeze that keeps things comfortable. The unit is in a older building and could use some updates, but for what the owner charges, it's an excellent unit. Maui doesn't have to be uber expensive.

The owner contacted me prior to arrival to go over some details as well as things to do on Maui. He also called on our last day.

Overall a fantastic value for a nice condo in a very accessible location that is close to everything Kihei and Wailea has to offer.

This condo is the best!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Berney has the best condo. Super clean, everything you need for essentials and beautiful oceanview from the lanai. When you arrive, there's a box of chocolates as a welcome gift and a binder with all sorts of info including directions on how to get to various places. This condo is in the best building in the complex so close to everything...pool, beach and withing walking distance to awesome restaurants etc.

We had the best vacation and will be staying in this condo again on our next trip to Maui.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Berney has a great condo. He was on top of our needs even getting us into the condo early as soon as it was ready. Welcomed with a box of chocolates. He made sure we had an alternate contact while he was away. It is well stocked and the views are better than the pictures show. This is directly across the street from a great beach to take your morning walk. Plenty of restaurants and shops near by.

Excellent Location and Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Maui and stayed at this perfectly located condo for our 20th anniversary. Neither of us had ever been to Hawaii and we both LOVED every moment of this trip. The condo, as other have said, is perfectly located right across the road from a beautiful and not overly busy beach. It is also within walking distance to many restaurants and shops as well as a grocery store. We got a rental car because we wanted to drive to a few of our activities, but if you just wanted to hang out on the beach and walk to get food/groceries, you could live without a rental car. The sidewalks were never crowded, but always had people on them (except at 5:30 a.m. The time change was an adjustment.)

The condo is equipped with beach chairs, body boards, beach towels, etc. which we definitely made use of. It also has all kinds of kitchen supplies to make your own food, if you wish. We also made use of these things. We used the grills down by the pool, too, which were very nice.

The decor and TV/video equipment are a bit dated, but not in bad condition, by any means. The lanai was wonderful we ate there and just sat there at times to enjoy the beautiful grounds of the property and the amazing view of the ocean.

One other thing I wanted to mention that seems kinda weird at first (but then you get used to it) is the windows in the bedroom. They were open and we weren't sure how or if to ever shut them...they're up high and tucked in above the closet. They open to the walkway outside the condos so at night you might hear people walking by talking, etc. It didn't bother us after the first day. No one was ever loud or disruptive. Like I said, it just seemed unusual to us at first.

That all being said, we would stay at this property again in a heartbeat! It has taken us weeks to finally stop talking about how much we miss being there. It was AMAZING! Bernie was a helpful and attentive host and made sure everything went smoothly getting into the condo and then after we left, sent us a kind message. We recommend this place without reservation.

Great get-away from the snow and cold

  • 5 of 5

Any vacation in Maui is going to be a great time! We really enjoyed Berney’s condo. The view from the lanai was beautiful, the ocean in daytime and sunset in the evening, overlooking the beautiful grounds. You are literally across the road from the beach and within short walking distance of many restaurants and shops so the location could not be better. It’s always fun to go to the complex barbecues and make new friends. The condo is full of mirrors, tropical paintings and decorations to really get you into the mindset of being on the island. The closet has numerous beach supplies so you are ready to go. We liked this condo so much we have already booked for next year.
