Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A quarter-mile-long crescent of safe, lifeguarded, sandy beach with gentle surf, flanked by dramatic rocky points teeming with tropical fish and turtles--where is this slice of paradise? Right across the street from your stylish and spacious 2-bedroom/2-bath condo! No need to load the family in the car: just grab the cooler, beach chairs and beach towels(all provided in your unit)and walk to some of the best swimming and snorkeling on Maui! Kamaole II Beach is one of only three lifeguarded, designated swimming beaches in Kihei; if you want to do more than gaze at the ocean from a distance, this is the place to be!

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.

The heart of the remodel is the gleaming kitchen, new in 2017, with its expansive granite counters and full granite backsplash, under-cabinet lighting, cherry cabinets outfitted with the latest features, all stainless steel appliances, and the new curved eating bar with stainless pendant lighting and added seating.

Newer carpeting and linens in the bedrooms (plus a new pillow top queen mattress) are complemented by new ceramic tile floors throughout the rest of the unit and designer paint set off by white millwork and six-panel interior doors. The kitchen 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. 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.

About Jeanne Erdahl

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!

Jeanne Erdahl purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jeanne Erdahl chose Kihei

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 Kahului is all four-lane highway and goes direct to the airport...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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Maui and the condo was perfect. We appreciated the beach chairs, noodles, beach towels and coolers, all of which we used daily! The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking and the washer and dryer totally made our whole trip much easier. Thank you for allowing us to check in early, as well.



We will definitely stay with you again in the future.

Great condo with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 people in our party and the condo was very comfortable. Even the pull out bed! Plenty of room. The condo had all the amenities we needed. Beach chairs, umbrellas, everything for the kitchen, etc.. The condo was very close to where we needed to park and very close to the beach. We loved it!!!! Thank you.

We hope to come back some day soon!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Jeanne & George! We loved staying at your beautiful condo! It was perfect for my husband & I, our two daughters, my sister, & her boyfriend. Everything we needed, was provided...beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, toys, boogie boards, a soft cooler, (& a larger cooler as well), Tupperware for snacks, bbq equipment... We bought food at Costco & Safeway and made good use of the bbq by the pool. My girls enjoyed sitting and eating at the counter of your wonderful kitchen. Your lanai was a perfect place to have coffee and my daughters liked sitting out at the table, drawing. We spent a lot of time at both pools and enjoyed the short walk to the beautiful beach right across the street. We didn't have to go far to visit other fabulous beaches and restaurants and shops were close by as well. We weren't far from the airport or Lahaina. We really felt that we were in the perfect location. The temperature of the condo was comfortable. We didn't have to turn on the AC at all. This was such a wonderful place to stay. We made memories to last a lifetime here. We really hope that we can come back some day soon and we would love to stay at your place again! :)

Memorable stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time staying in your condo in Kihei. We greatly appreciated the beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys! Our kids had many hours of fun on the beach thanks to your thoughtfulness. The condo was nicely maintained and clean. We used the full equipped and remodeled kitchen for many meals and picnic preparations. We appreciated the condo's prime location, very close to several beaches and many South Kihei road businesses/services. Thank you very much for the accommodation!

This is the eighth stay at the Kihei Akahi unit and it has been consistently excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The 2 BR unit was shared by my kids and their spouses. A quality stay which they lacked for nothing. We’ve stayed at the Kihei Akahi properties (Buildings C and D) since 1986. The quality of the property has not slipped a bit over the 30 plus years.
