SOME COMMENTS FROM OUR RECENT GUESTS:
“Second stay in this lovely condo...”
We stayed in this condo two years ago and was impressed with the price and comforts of home that we decided to stay a second time. This condo is still the best value in Kihei. We enjoyed the ocean view from the lanai every morning and went boogie boarding and snorkeling at Kam II everyday. Snorkeling was amazing. We saw beautiful fish and turtles each time. The complex is well maintained and clean. We even used the outdoor grill by the pool and it looked brand new. We will definitely be back.

“Location, location, location!
This comfy condo is directly across from the best beach in Kihei. Very short walk to all the souvenir shops and restaurants you could want! Not the newest place but well equipped kitchen, linens and towels, and extras like beach chairs and snorkel gear. A very good value in a super convenient location.

“Incredible Condo, Great View, Loved It!”
I stayed at this lovely condo for 9 days with my sister. We enjoyed the view from the lanai and the easy access to the beach. It was fun to make the trek nightly from the condo to watch the beautiful sunsets. The condo is in a great location to visit other places on the island. There is nothing we would change!
Guest from Salem Oregon - June 2014
YOU WILL BE WALKING DISTANCE TO:
Several restaurants and fast food as well
Small food market
Ice Cream shop
Shipping outlet to ship pkgs. back home
THE KIHEI AKAHI COMPLEX HAS:
KAMAOLE BEACH II directly across from it
Beautifully landscaped grounds
2 Swimming pools
2 Large barbeque grills
It is well located, and a great deal for the money on the island. It is also only 1 mile from beautiful Wailea with its first class golf courses and a huge shopping Mall 'The Shops at Wailea'. You will want for nothing. All of the places to go are at your fingertips, but if it’s peace and serenity your looking for, have a quiet drink on the lanai, smell the Plumeria and relax the night away.

About Kevin & Gayla Conway

Kevin & Gayla Conway purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Kevin & Gayla Conway chose Kihei
We had stayed in the Kihei Akahi 3 times before we purchased there. We loved the location. When the opportunity came up we purchased a condo there. We have always enjoyed staying in our Maui home and are very happy to share our home with our guests.
What makes this Condo unique
The very best benefit of our condo is location, location, location. We are across the street from one of the best beaches in Kihei, Kamaole Beach II. We are walking distance from several gift shops, clothing stores, an Ice Cream Parlour, video store, and restaurants. We are also only 1 mile from Wailea, where you will find the very large outdoor Mall of The Shops At Wailea. Our condo has a home-like tropical decor and nothing is more relaxing than sitting on the lanai with a Mai Tai gazing at the ocean view.

This convenient location was perfect for us! Had that smaller resort feel in the neighboring areas, was easy to find everything, beach was close as promised and the unit was clean, access was easy and fully equipped. It was more equipped than we thought, when the prior vacationer brought back even more beach supplies they forgot to leave behind after they left for their stay.
Thanks so much Teresia. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo. We are always striving to add to the amenities at our place.
Good condo at a good price. Great view from the balcony. Washer and dryer big plus.
The beach was awesome, from watching whales jumps out of the water, sea turtles actually petted a couple and then found out your not suppose too and great for walking. Plenty of stores and restaurants within walking distance. About 20 minutes to the road to Hana a must do.
Thanks so much for the review. The beach, the view and convenience of the location we feel makes our condo stand out. Glad you enjoyed it.
Good condo, great location
Overall, we had a positive experience in this condo and would recommend it for 1-2 people who have no issues sleeping on an uncomfortable bed and/or are not easily woken from sleep by elevator noises or people speaking. The sofa bed in the living room was pretty uncomfortable (a bit of an understatement) and made sleep difficult. The bedroom which has a comfortable bed is right next to the elevator so all conversations can be easily heard and folks can become very chatty while waiting for the elevator. This occurs at all hours and so uninterrupted sleep is not possible. Other than the sleep issues (which were a big deal for us on a vacation where we were hoping to catch up on sleep), the condo itself was fine and we found everything we needed. As others have noted before, the carpet is worn, the furniture and decorations a bit dated, but the price is reasonable and the location really great.
We do agree the hide a bed is not as comfortable as a real bed which is why we will be replacing the mattress on our up coming trip a few weeks from now, although I don't believe there are very many comfortable hide a beds, but we will do our best to find one. We do understand that some light sleepers do have a problem with the elevator outside the condo, and we are sorry this guest did have a problem sleeping. In12 years there is many guests that do not have that problem. It truthfully can be just a percentage of the other guests in the condo complex being thoughtless and inconsiderate while waiting for the elevator, and on another stay the guest in our condo has no issues of noise.
Home away from Home in Paradise! Great view at an amazing price.
There were so many things to love about this delightful vacation condo at the Kihei Akahi! Communication with the owners was excellent. The photo of the view from the balcony is the real deal. We thoroughly enjoyed having our coffee out on the balcony each morning and discussing our plans for the day. Beautiful view of the ocean on one side and on clear days, a nice view upcountry on the other. A sweet little brown bird frequently visited to check out if we'd dropped any crumbs from our breakfast. Plumeria blossoms gently drifted down to the courtyard below in the light breeze.
The proximity to the beach is one of the best features - it's less than 5 minutes until your toes hit the sand! We got up early each morning to enjoy a beach stroll and each evening we joined the people on Kam II for the nightly sunset countdown ritual. My husband went snorkeling on the point between Kam II & III and saw two turtles.
You can tell that the owners have put a lot of thought into the needs of their guests. There are guidebooks for Maui and the guestbook is a treasure trove of useful tips from former guests. There is a good variety of kitchen utensils and the pantry cupboard has everything you need from a sewing kit to packing tape for those parcels to send home. The in-suite laundry facilities are very convenient. And the closet in the bedroom is chock full of beach equipment. We made good use of the snorkel gear, beach chairs, and the cooler. There were also boogie boards and sand castle-making toys for children.
Some folks may find the kitchen cabinets a little dated and the carpet a little tired & worn but we were quite happy to forego the Better Homes & Gardens look in exchange for such an affordable price. The unit was clean. The decor had cute tropical touches and we felt very at home and comfortable.
The condo is within easy walking distance of many shops and restaurants. I highly recommend the wonderful Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods store which is less than a 5 minute walk away. They stock many locally grown fruits & vegetables and their produce prices were better than the Foodland further up the road.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at this unit in the Kihei Akahi and we'd definitely consider staying here again if we ever return to beautiful Maui.
This was a great way to celebrate our honeymoon. Great room, great location.
Thanks for your kind comments. We do get a lot of honeymooner guests. I'm sure Maui will 'call' you back for an anniversary, and we will be updating the flooring and the kitchen at the end of this year.
Great Place for the Price
In regards to our stay, we found that for the price this condo offered great views with a fantastic location, however for a longer visit it would have been nice to have been accommodated with the necessary everyday essentials, such as paper towels, laundry soap, and light bulbs for all the burnt out lamps throughout the unit. In addition, the supplied beach gear was thoroughly outdated and overly used, however we did contribute some expensive boogie boards towards the collection, so we hope future guests will enjoy. All things considered, we did appreciate our stay at this condo.
We do agree our guests staying in our 2nd home in Maui should have paper towels, toilet paper, and laundry soap. We did believe our housekeeper does supply those items for our guests. I am assuming the amount left was not enough for the 2 weeks. We will discuss with our housekeeping company the amounts of those items left for each week of a stay. And we of course would expect all light bulbs to be burning. I believe we have extra light ;bulbs in a cabinet of the kitchen available for guests just in case a bulb burns out. We would hope that guests would contact either ourselves or our housekeeper which is why we give both our phone numbers and our housekeeper as well. It of course can be hard to monitor supplies for each guest when unlike a hotel there is no daily maid service.. Keeping guests in our home comfortable is always our goal. We are always happy to solve an issue when it comes up.
