About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Unlike many rental units, the owners frequently stay here themselves, resulting in personal touches and thoughtful upgrades that will make you feel like an honored house guest. With a recent remodel, this very spacious unit is on the first floor (one up from ground floor) of the coveted D Building--an end unit with whispering palm fronds surrounding it and a peekaboo Western ocean view, plus exceptional privacy and quiet at the far end of the building.
Newer carpeting and linens in the bedrooms (plus a new pillow top queen mattress) are complemented by ceramic tile floors throughout the rest of the unit and designer paint set off by white millwork and six-panel interior doors. A peninsula kitchen with custom cherry cabinetry and all new stainless steel appliances is charmingly open to the living area, making entertaining irresistible, especially with the inclusion of the over-sized lanai open on two sides to the tropical breezes. The two bathrooms were luxuriously updated in 2011 to include designer tile and granite countertops. Four ceiling fans in bedrooms and living area keep those breezes moving, but there's also an air conditioner if needed. Trendy halogen track lights add drama in the kitchen and gracious entry hall. In-unit washer/dryer keeps beachwear easily clean, and there is convenient access to the reserved parking just outside the door.
Newer twin beds in the second bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room add ample room for an extended family or two or three couples...room to sleep six if desired. A desk and cable hookup plus wi-fi offer space for your laptop connection to the complimentary high-speed internet service; flat-screen TV, DVD/VCR player and ipod docking station are provided for your additional pleasure...that is, if you can tear yourself away from the romantic tropical landscaping, two pools with barbecue grills, tennis court, and the five-minute stroll down to fabulous Kamaole II Beach and the nearby shops and restaurants.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: That's me, with one of the grandchildren that instigated my purchase of a second, 2-bedrooom unit at Kihei Akahi...now my kids and grandkids can be there when I am, and I can cheer on their efforts at swimming across the pool and building the best sandcastle on the beach! My Mom and Dad started coming to Maui in the fifties, and, when I got to the point where I couldn't live without my Maui fix, I discovered they had already done all the work for me in identifying the best island and best beaches, and they are right here in Kihei!
Why the Owner Chose Kihei, HI, USA:
In all senses, it's just the best! The Kamaole Beaches are stellar (and have been voted as best beaches in the world by several different publications) because they are safe, lifeguarded, close to snorkeling, and superb for swimming. I can walk to the library, good grocery stores, many restaurants and shops-- they're all within a mile of Kihei Akahi. It's also close to upscale Wailea with its many golf courses and shops, but much more economical. Access into 'town' (Kahului/Wailuku) is even easier now with a new four-lane highway all the way...not an all-day trip as it can be from the Kaanapali/Kapalua area. And the micro climate? Let me just say that when it's raining on most of the rest of Maui, Kihei is usually still in the sunshine!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I love to be outdoors, and as a rest-of-the-year resident of the Seattle area, I also crave sunshine, sunsets, swimming and hiking. When winter rolls around in Washington, it seems like the sun doesn't rise until 9 and is setting again by 3 in the afternoon. That's just not enough daylight! When I'm in Kihei, I slow down, live every minute, glory in the birdsong, watch the whales cavort, become transfixed by the rhythm of the waves, smile at the little kids romping on the beach...and never even think of turning on the TV.
