About Tyler and Andrea
My wife and I enjoy spending time on the beach. We also like to play tennis and swim in the afternoon.
Tyler and Andrea purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Tyler and Andrea chose Kihei
We have visited Maui for over 40 years. It took several years for a unit to become available to purchase in the ocean front A building at Kihei Akahi. With all the amenities in the complex and a stones throw to the beach it's hard to find a better place to stay.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy the top lanai watching whales and sunsets. The bottom lanai is private where we typically eat most of our meals and are able to enjoy the manicured lawn and tropical plants. Since we have a toddler it's excellent to put her down early upstairs and we can continue to enjoy both lanais and the entire main floor in the evenings.

Awesome stay in paradise!
This property is amazing! The views from the lanai and the walk to the beach are amazing! Sunsets are spectacular!! We would book this condo again! Loved it!
Our family loves to stay at the Kihei Acahi complex, with its close proximity to town, yet it's close proximity to great beaches. This particular condo (A101) cannot be beat, with incredible views of the ocean from both lanais. It feels private, and while it's true (other reviewers) that you can hear traffic from South Kihei Road, and noise from the restaurant to the right of the condo, we did not find it bothersome or problematic during our 8-day stay. The great location, nightly spectacular sunsets, fast walk to the beach, and close proximity to the pool and BBQ area was worth it, for us!
House was well equipped, and felt spacious enough for comfort (it's one of the larger condos, at over 1000 sq ft) our larger family felt very comfortable there.
We had and extra car for added independence and flexibility, and it was no problem! We were able to park close by in visitor parking at the complex for $2/day.
Overall, definitely recommend! I would return to this unit and encourage others to do so as well.
Not so much
While the property has an excellent location, it had an annoying rooster who woke us every morning at 4 30 lasting till around noon, would have been nice to sleep in! Property needed to be cleaned, speaking of which, cleaners came in while we were away without notifying us and proceeded to clean furniture and carpets which were sopping wet when we came home. What a shock and a mess! Took 2 days to dry! Talk about loss of privacy! The owners did compensate for this.
Thank you for your post, we appreciate all feedback. Unfortunately, chickens and roosters are wild on the island of Maui. We are pleased to let you know that the particular rooster that was making so much noise has been relocated to another part of the island and he is no longer bothering anyone with his early wake up calls.
In regards to the steam cleaning of the furniture that occurred while you were staying in our unit, we apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. As discussed, our property management company has acknowledged that they mistakenly booked the steam clean for the incorrect dates. We are very sorry that this occurred and have compensated you a full three nights for the inconvenience.
Unbeatable location, awesome complex, well equipped kitchen, would definitely stay again.
Overall awesome experience with this lovely condo. I would definitely stay here again. only 2 small caveats. Unbeatable location, awesome complex/facilities, well equipped kitchen, phenomenal sunset views from both Lanais, lots of beach stuff, and on-site management is great. Two deterrents: the pull out sofa beds are pretty much unusable. The mattresses are super firm, Springy, and you can feel the bar mechanism in your back. Would recommend owner to replace pull out sofa mattresses. Other downside was the rooster in the morning. Pretty loud every 30 minutes from 5am-8am. Bring ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper. We were all used to rooster before we left, but a few early morning wake up calls day 1 and 2. Not the owners fault for this though. If sofa bed mattress had been useable, this would be a 5 star review. I loved everything else about this place and would highly recommend it. Prefect for families or a group of 4 people.
Beautiful location, very clean and comfortable.
The owners thought of every detail. Anything we needed was there and/or instructions on where we could find it.
This townhouse had everything, including the location. Central to everything. The road in front can be somewhat noisey but you get used to it. Twin beds in second bedroom are not "adult" friendly lol but you make do! We stayed 2 weeks here with another couple so we traded for the master bedroom after a week (awesome sunset views from that room). We will never forget "Rocky the Rooster" (who lived right behind that tree in the picture) waking us up every morning at 5:00am with his "cock-a-doodle-do lololol. We give this townhouse a 9 out of 10 and would love to come back again.
