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.

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.

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 South Maui

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!

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.

Perfect Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Jeanne,

We would like to thank you so much for having us stay at your condo. It was spectacular.

We had everything we needed for a young family. From beach toys/chairs/umbrella/coolers/bags etc.

The kitchen was also full of extra things, such as lunch boxes, glad storage containers etc.

Upon arrival, we were pleased to see how close we were to the beach. The location of your condo is perfect, at the end of the complex away from the busy road. It was quite and tranquil. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, and the property is very well maintained and clean. We loved being so close to all the restaurants and shops.

If i could only make a small suggestion, it would be great if you can add some curtains to the bedrooms. Maui has a beautiful "very" early sunrise, therefore having some blackout curtains would be a bonus. (i am sure you have a good reason for not having them, but would be great to give people the option to have them open or closed when they sleep)

Jeanne, thank you again for allowing us to build some beautiful memories in Maui. We cannot wait to come again, and also stay at your condo.

What a magical place Kihei is :-)

Great Stay in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed for our week stay in Kihei. The condo was very clean and the complex was quiet. There were coolers, beach chairs, beach toys, and towels for our use. We loved the location, easy walk to the beach and restaurants. The owners did a great job accommodated a special request that we had. Next time in Kihei we will rent this condo again.

wonderful condo for family or a couple

  • 5 of 5

We took our daughter and her three daughters for the oldest grand daughter's 18th birthday and it fit us very well. Sleeps six comfortably and we were not cramped in it with three teens. Loved the washer and dryer and the full kitchen. We cooked and also went out for meals.

The lanai was very private feeling and wonderful with tropical birds and winds. We will return again someday. Great experience in a very clean place.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

The unit was everything promised. Clean and spacious. We had four couples in units in the same complex and many nights we had all 17 people over eating. The owners were great to deal with and we will definatley book again if back on Maui.

Lovely, quiet condo in Kihei beach paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3-year-old son, and I had a fantastic time here. Jeanne, the owner, is very attentive and does a great job to make sure you have everything you need. There's a box stacked with beach toys, snorkels and fins, and we used it all. In addition to the beds in the bedrooms, the pull-out sofa bed has a great mattress on it--better than the one we have at home--so if you need that it's a very comfortable sleeping option. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: A full kitchen update with granite countertops and backsplash, new cabinets, and bar seating is in the works for this fall. All stainless steel appliances have already been added less than 5 years ago.
