Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our beautiful ground floor condo in the popular Kihei Akahi is privately owned and we are proud to call it our second home. We have provided all necessary amenities to make the kitchen and unit fully functional.

This ground floor condo opens up to a lanai with a garden view of plumeria trees, hibiscus and palms – the perfect extension of the living room. The security lanai door enables easy access directly across the lawn to south Kihei’s beaches, to the two pools, pool-side BBQs, and the tennis court. Air conditioning, ceiling fans, and afternoon trade winds keep the condo cool.

The condo provides Hawaiian furnishings, décor featuring local artists, an in-unit full sized washer/dryer, one reserved parking space, a security safe, stereo, and beach gear (chairs, towels, boogie board, water straws, cooler). Other amenities include free telephone calls to the U.S. and Canada, high-speed Wi-Fi internet access, and a LCD flat screen Smart TV with cable. Recycling bins are located next to the tennis court.

Location – Kihei Akahi is located directly across the street from Kamaole Beach II, a great white sand beach great for swimming, snorkeling (around the two rocky points at the north and south ends of the beach), and for watching sunsets. Many fantastic restaurants, shops, and grocery stores are within close walking distance from the condo, and several open-air restaurants are directly adjacent to the property.

Visit beautiful sunny Kihei and experience why we love south Maui!

About Tom & Karissa Anderson

Tom and Karissa Anderson

Aloha and mahalo for visiting our VRBO page! We live in Northern California and have traveled to the Hawaiian islands many times. Maui is our favorite island since in our opinion, it has the best beaches. We plan to enjoy it for many years to come and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Tom & Karissa Anderson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Tom & Karissa Anderson chose Kihei

Kihei Akahi had everything we were looking for – close proximity to beautiful beaches and convenience to stores and restaurants. We also appreciate the attention to detail regarding landscaping and maintenance. We thought that our guests would appreciate this as well!

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is upgraded, tropically decorated and well-maintained. Our ground floor unit makes access to the pools and beach very convenient.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The new shower, washer & dryer are wonderful. Unit was clean. Easy access to the ocean, beach, and shopping. Lower level unit is great, small lanai but worth the beautiful grass area. A real delight. Returning again.

Ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Great stay! Karissa & Tom were always so quick to respond and pleasant to speak to. The condo was in the perfect spot, never getting too hot with the breeze coming through. The 90 second trip to the beach didn't hurt and with so many shops, restaurants and stores around you don't really need a car if you don't want it. We just loved sitting on the lanai with a cocktail after a hard day at the beach (but chairs could use some new cushions). It was just the most relaxing and tranquil trip. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review, and I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay! We agree with you about the lanai chairs, and we just purchased new comfortable chairs that do not require cushions. Mahalo!

Nice Complex But Wouldn't Choose This Unit Again

  • 2 of 5

This is a great location. It is within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. The beach is right across the street and you don't need a car to have a great time. The complex has a variety of units that are individually owned (but managed through agencies) so the quality and amenities vary greatly. On the plus side, this unit has a nice clean shower and bathroom. On the negative side the furniture is dated and worn. The light coloured carpet is not a good choice for a rental unit on the ground floor. A hardwood or tile floor would have looked so much better. But the worst thing was the bugs. I was told that the units were 'treated' regularly, but I was totally grossed out by the bugs. I am assuming they were cockroaches. I arrived late on a Thursday and it was Friday night by the time I realized what a problem they were. Particularly in the kitchen. There were crawling on the counter, in the sink, inside dishes and I even found one in the cutlery drawer. I informed the office on Saturday morning and was asked to take a picture and send it in, although the problem couldn't be dealt with on the weekend. I took the picture and sent it to the email supplied by the office. It kept bouncing back, so I sent a second email to the rental agency. Like I said, the kitchen was the worst, and I stopped using it and spent the rest of my holiday eating out. An unexpected expense and a hassle seeing I specifically wanted a unit with a kitchen to prepare some of my own meals. The office told me, the unit could be sprayed if the owner agreed, but that sounded rather toxic, so I told them to wait until after I left.

My daughter and her family stayed in a lovely 2 bedroom unit that was facing the beach. Their unit was immaculately clean and they didn't have any problem with bugs. So do your homework and choose wisely.

Owner's Response: Aloha, and we are so sorry for your experience. As you know, everyone loves the tropics, including bugs. This is managed by keeping a very clean living space and making sure that all food is properly sealed. We stayed in our unit for two weeks immediately after your stay, and this is no longer an issue. Additionally, the living room furniture has been replaced as of Dec. 11, 2017, including a new sofa, arm chair, media console, LED Smart TV, dining table and chairs. The carpet is cleaned regularly, and the kitchen and bath remodel included tiled floors. If any guests have questions, please feel free to contact us. Mahalo!

clean and stocked with anything you could need/use

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Maui, Kihei had so much to offer, the beach across the street was fun for boogie boarding or watching the sunrise/sunset. Lots of little shops, places to eat and relatively close to Pulani highway and bigger beaches. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom adequate. Would stay here again!!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 3 years in a row and we have booked it for a 4th. This time we had issues with the t.v. and found out property managers didn't tell the owners so we did. The owners were very apologetic and we just love this place and don't want to stay anywhere else. It's a clean, beautiful and spacious unit with everything you need for a day at the beach or to chill in the condo. Thank you Tom & Karissa we appreciate you Much Aloha and Mahalo
