About Terri Schur

Gary and I love Hawaii. We return there every year to relax. Before we do relax, we always shop for new linens, kitchen supplies, and decor. Gary is retired from teaching at a public school, but still teaches public health at the local university. I am still teaching health and life science at the public schools so we can only go to Hawaii during the summer to visit our home away from home. We know that others will go and enjoy our home while we can only live vicariously through them. We call Southern California our home, for now. We have five, rescue dogs and a bird. Yes, we love animals and miss them all terribly when we are in Hawaii. We have traveled extensively through out the world, but nothing beats Hawaii for beauty and relaxation. Please come, and enjoy Hawaii. We will help you plan your trip and make sure you enjoy every minute.

Why Terri Schur chose South Maui

Kihei Akahi is across from one of the best beaches in Hawaii, and definitely on Maui. Here, we can relax, enjoy the tidepools, watch the whales play from the shore, enjoy the beautiful sunsets, and walk in the sand to our hearts content. Our condo makes for easy access to the pool, the beach, to restaurants, and to evening walks. What more could we ask for!

What makes this condo unique

Our home in Hawaii is quiet and peaceful. Close enough to the ocean to walk to every evening to watch the sunset. We enjoy the safety of the island, too. The people are friendly and there are plenty of dogs on the beach to watch play and romp in the water. We love to go in the winter to watch the whales. Sitting on the beach, or driving the coast, we can see whales breach, show off their flukes, or spy hop without going out on a boat. Snorkeling and scuba are easy to do from shore, so the price doesn't get expensive for these activities. Maui is joy to us, and one day we hope to make it a year round home. Come and enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is what a guest said through texting. "Sadly our vacation (has) come to an end. We enjoyed your condo immensely. It was the hub for our family while we were here. So close to pool, barbecues, with a beautiful lawn in front. Everything was perfect. So well supplied. You do a great job. From what I've seen, your place is just about the best - and you can quote me."

Another great stay at this perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was my seventh time staying at Terri and Gary's Kihei condo. They continue to enhance the decor, furnishings, and amenities. It gets better every time. Such a relaxing, quiet, ideal location near shops and best beaches in Kihei. Peaceful patio great for enjoying breakfast or a drink at night. Looking forward to future stays.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are so happy that you chose, again, to stay in our condo. We are constantly adding to the condos decor and supply items. We want your vacation to be the best that it can be. We just put in a new queen sofa bed and rocking chair for our guests to enjoy. The condo is quiet and away from the street, but at the same time easy access to the beach. I, too, enjoy sitting outside early in the morning or during sunset. It is so peaceful. We hope that you will return, again. Thank you, again Terri

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are responsive, easy to work with, and provided helpful information to make our anniversary stay a wonderful experience. The unit is far enough way from the beach road to be free from the traffic noise, but convenient enough to walk to the beautiful beach location where we swam with sea turtles on our last day. The grounds of the complex are well maintained and landscaped with amazing flowers and trees. We drove all over the island and loved this spot as a home base. Would stay again if we're ever blessed to return.

Owner's Response: Jim, Thank you for such a great review! I am so happy that you had a wonderful time during your anniversary trip. The gardens on the property are so peaceful and beautiful. The smell of the plumeria is wonderful. The wildlife is fantastic. We love walking out on the reef, at the beach in front of our condo complex, and looking for turtles, sea stars, and fish. I hope that you and your bride find your way back to Maui, soon. You are always welcome back. Mahalo, Terri

Great location and well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for your Maui adventure! It's in walking distance to every necessity: grocery, yummy restaurants and cafes, drug store, the best beaches, etc.

Being from CA we had a 3hr time change, so every morning we'd wake up super early with the kids and walk (4 min) down to the beach to play.

We loved that it was also the perfect location for our driving adventures because it was so centrally located.

Also about 20 steps from the patio is the pool! We'd lay out during our kids naps and take turns jumping in the pool!

As for the home, it's a cozy one bedroom stocked with everything to make you feel right at home! From coolers and ice packs, to extra pillows, linens and bath towels, to reusable grocery bags and lots of Tupperware, to beach towels and beach toys, to chairs, umbrellas and snorkel gear, and all the cooking and eating supplies you need for anything from basic meals, to gourmet meals, etc. I don't think we had to buy one thing while we were staying there except for food! (Tons of condiments there too)

The condo is in great condition and everything works. It was a little cozy for us on the two days of absolute torrential down pour. Which is to be expected since it was us two adults, a toddler and baby. The rest of our trip we only used the condo to sleep and we were out adventuring all other times.

We also loved that we couldn't hear neighbor noise from people staying above or on the sides :)

Enjoy your stay! We sure did :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! We agree that it is a perfect location. Very convenient to everything you want to have while enjoying a great tropical vacation. We try to make sure that our condo has everything needed to make the perfect stay. I hope that having the new sofa sleeper there for you and your children to enjoy was a nice addition. So happy you enjoyed your stay. Please let me know if you plan another trip to Maui. Mahalo, Terri

A great place to stay for a week or much longer.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay for one week in January at Kihei Akahi. This is a very comfortable, clean, and well stocked condo; everything you could need. Building D's location is very quiet and in such a pretty setting, especially from our perspective on the ground floor. The beautiful beach is right there just a short walk through the property. Though we prefer to swim in the ocean, the pools on the property were clean and very inviting.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. The walk to the beach is such a nice, short stroll. With a great tide pool area. Yes, the pool area is always clean. I go in the pool after a long day touring or being at the beach. I like to stand in it, up to my shoulders, and put my book on the edge and read. It is relaxing. Being so close to the condo back door, makes it especially nice. I hope that in the future, should you find yourself returning to Maui, you choose to stay at our condo, again. Thank you, again Terri

Everything you need and right across from the best beach in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Really - everything you need. Within walking distance to restaurants, wifi worked well, tons of books, games, towels, beach gear and about 20 steps to the pool if you don't feel like heading to the beach which is right across the street. New kitchen is beautiful as well as super clean with all the gadgets, pans, or tools you might need. Did I mention everything was clean? We stayed in Kihei Akahi 10 years ago and were not disappointed this time around. Well kept, updated as needed and our biggest wish was that we could have stayed longer. Owners were prompt with answers to my traveler-weary questions when we arrived as well as all other communications. As another guest noted, you can absolutely stay here with confidence. We would all head back to Kihei Akahi and stay in this condo in a hot second!

Owner's Response: Hi Julie, Thank you for the wonderful review. We try to make our condo warm and welcoming. We want it to be what we would wish for a rental to be; clean, all items available and in good shape, as described, and definitely in a great location. We take all suggestions seriously. We want to meet your high expectations and not have our guests disappointed in any way. You should have the kind of vacation where everything is perfect! We are so happy that you found everything to your satisfaction. You are always welcome back. Again, thank you for the great comments. Terri and Gary

Stay here with confidence.

  • 5 of 5

We are just wrapping up our stay here Kihei Akahi and want to leave an excellent review of this property. The location is great, close to the beach, restaurants, sports equipment rental shops, tourist destinations and more. The unit itself is on the ground floor and adjacent to the pool. It is well appointed and has everything you will want for an enjoyable stay, including beach gear, WIFI, cable, full kitchen, etc. The beach is down the driveway and across the crosswalk. This fantastic beach (Kam II) is flat and easy to walk on. It features a beautiful vantage point for the fabulous Maui sunsets and if you like to snorkel you can see turtle on the small reef on the south end of the beach. I saw several while snorkeling and also saw a couple while walking on the reef.

Working with the owner was very easy and she was very prompt in responding to any questions that I had. We are happy to recommend this unit to you and wish you a fabulous vacation here at Kihei Akahi.

Owner's Response: Aloha Martin, Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so happy to make sure that all of our guests enjoy their stay on Maui and in our condo. That all of their needs are met, and we hope to assist in any way we can to make their vacation wonderful. Kam II beach is a perfect location to go snorkeling and enjoy the native wildlife. I walk on that reef often, but I have only seen a turtle a few times. I guess I'll have to keep my eyes open when Gary and I arrive next month. Thank you, again for the great review. You are always welcome back to stay in our condo. Terri and Gary
