Aloha! Welcome to Hale Ma'kai (house beside the sea), my tropical-themed vacation home at Kihei Akahi. My smoke-free one-bedroom Maui condo, located in sunny Kihei, is the perfect place to spend your Maui vacation. Hale Ma'kai is a spacious (696 SF), ground-floor condo with lanai opening out onto a large lawn. It has been decorated with tropical decor to provide you with a feeling of a south seas home away from home. The kitchen and bathroom have been updated with new cabinets, appliances and finishes. The living room has had a new sofa and carpeting several times. In 2015 new energy efficient windows were installed. Most recent updates were new living room carpet and refrigerator (2017), new dishwasher, countertops with sinks and faucets in kitchen and bath (2018), and bathtub/shower reglazed (2018). The bedroom has been completely renovated with new carpeting, tropical furniture imported from the mainland and a new king mattress. It has a Tommy Bahama quilt, staying consistent with the tropical theme. My pictures reflect the style of the condo.
Inside is your own washer and dryer, ceiling fans, a quiet window AC, free high-speed WiFi, free use of a Dell laptop and printer (see description) free long distance phone service to the US and Canada, and a fully-equipped kitchen. In addition, the condo has a flat panel TV with Spectrum's "Silver" TV cable package, and a DVD/VHS player with and an eclectic library of books, VCR tapes, and DVDs -- several featuring Hawaiian history and/or culture.
I now live about two miles from the condo and can personally perform regular deep cleaning and maintenance. I am also available to handle any problem right away. I want my guests to have the best vacation experience possible.
The Kihei Akahi complex boasts lovely tropical landscaped grounds with Plumeria trees, Hibiscus and other mature, lush Hawaiian plants. We have even created a botanical garden walk on the grounds; maps are available at the front desk.
Across the street is sandy Kamaole II Beach Park with showers and restrooms. During the day until 5:00 PM, the beach park has life guards. At Kam II, as it is called, you will be able to catch the rays of the sun (wear sunscreen!) or swim and snorkel -- and be likely to see a green sea turtle or two. In the evenings you will be able to sit on the west-facing beach or my personal lanai and view the sunsets while having a glass of wine or dinner.
My condo can be accessed via wheelchair. However, it is not true ADA compliant and, therefore, not set up for many needs of handicapped guests. Please discuss your needs with me before booking.
Although true ADA compliant service animals are allowed in the Kihei Akahi complex, PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN MY CONDO as many of my guests and I have pet allergies and the cost and time required to clean and remove allergens is prohibitive.
My Condo is smoke-free. SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE IN MY CONDO OR ON THE LANAI! Kihei Akahi has a policy of no smoking in the walkways, the lanais, or within 50 feet of any buildings.
The State of Hawaii requires that all vacation rentals be registered with the state to pay both transient accommodations and excise taxes on rentals. My Hawaiian tax ID# is: T-158-023-6800
