Condo, 1 King Bedroom + Queen Sofabed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4) with Garden View
Aloha! I have been coming to Maui since 1982 when I finally fulfilled my dream of visiting Hawaii. Maui really is a wonderful, special place and I feel fortunate to own my little piece of paradise and be able to share it with my guests. I encourage my guests to ask questions about Maui and their upcoming vacations. Many come back year after year and have become part of what I call "my Maui family."
Annette purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Annette chose Kihei
The first time I stayed at the Kihei Akahi complex was in 1987. Previously, I had always stayed in the Kaanapali area in one of the hotels. My friends with whom I was traveling and I really liked the relaxed pace of Kihei and the spaciousness of one bedroom condos. We liked being able to just walk across the street to a great beach for swimming and snorkeling. Subsequently all of my return visits were to this part of the island. When I finally decided to buy my own condo, I checked out many other properties as well but found that, for me, Kihei Akahi offered the best value. Kihei Akahi is built with very solid construction which means that sound does not normally travel between walls; units are very quiet. I also liked that I could walk to shops and restaurants -- a feature that I thought would appeal to my guests. And, of course, the grounds of the Kihei Akahi complex are kept up beautifully which makes it nice for me and my guests to visit.
What makes this Condo unique
I love that my condo sits at the back of the property facing west toward the sunsets and away from the noise of South Kihei Rd. It is a minute or two further to the beach than some of the units but it is very quiet and peaceful. Being on the ground floor, I can simply walk out my lanai door and I am 20 seconds to the pool and BBQs or am on the beach in about three-five minutes. I am walking distance (about 5-20 minutes) to enough restaurants and stores that I don't have to use my car unless I need to buy a lot of groceries or something special. Birds and plants on the property give me a great sense of peace and happiness. I hope you experience the same when you visit Maui.

Max guests: 4
This condo is in a great location, halfway down Kamaole II beach, and close to shops and restaurants. It's probably much better suited to a couple than a small family of 4. Annette was great for communication and the apartment has all the basics (starter toilet paper, a few garbage bags, dishwasher pods, etc). Of note, if you plan to do laundry make sure you plan extra time for this - this is the smallest washing machine I've ever seen. The a/c works great for the main living area and runs on a 4-hour timer. It never seemed to reach the bedroom but there is a ceiling fan and 2 mobile fans so it was fine. Overall, this is a nice place in a fantastic location.
We enjoyed our stay. Location is great and the complex is well maintained. Our accommodation was well supplied and you can tell the Annette cares. Thanks for a wonderful vacation home. We enjoyed every minute of our stay

Maui Ocean Center Aquarium -- a must see. Centrally located to all of Maui activities.
The Maui Bus runs on South Kihei Rd on which the Kihei Akahi complex is located. Those guests who prefer not to rent an automobile will find that the bus provides good access to much of the island.
