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.

Please post your comments / suggestions in our guest book. We want to continually make our unit more enjoyable for all our guests.

Kihei Akahi A101: Exclusive Ocean Front Two Story Condo - Best Location in Kihei
average rating of 4.347826 based on 24 reviews

The BEST Location with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kihei Akahi A101 from July 29 to August 9 with 6 adults and 1 child and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The location of this condo is great and it allowed us to try cinnamon buns from three different places throughout our stay - Cinnamon Roll Place, The Maui Bread Company and Kihei Cafe.

We loved being right across from the beach and being able to enjoy the sunset from the lanai. It was also really nice having AC in the unit and being able to do laundry! Other perks included the ample bedding, beach/pool towels provided, the folding beach chairs and boogie board found within the closet just off the kitchen.

I think the biggest complaint we probably had throughout our trip was the rooster that lived next door to the unit. He will very likely wake you up regardless of where you are sleeping!

Great value, some drawbacks, but would rebook.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 4 days with 3 adults and one toddler and would definitely rebook. Pros:

great location (eg. proximity to beaches, restaurants, coffee, etc. made it easy to minimize the car needs) and the beach goodies they have stocked in the closet have everything you will need. Cons: Noise . There is a restaurant and/or street about 25yds from the bedroom window and the windows do not seal completely (they are multiples glass panes). It didn't bother me but the other adults in are party who were light sleepers mentioned they could hear the noises. The interior is functional but basic. We also found Tyler and Andrea to be very honest, reasonable and responsive hosts. Overall, a great value in my opinion.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 18 days at this property. Good price for a condo like this with its special location. Location is outstanding with lanai on bottom floor and balcony on the top floor both excellent for viewing the ocean and sunsets. Well-stocked condo and spacious. Excellent refrigerator with ice-maker and filtered water. Good air-conditioning and fans downstairs and upstairs. Very comfortable beds. Parking for this unit is right outside the door.

We would definitely return to this property; however, there were a few concerns. Kitchen sink is in BAD shape (eye-sore) and needs to be replaced. The upstairs bedrooms and bathroom are attractive and nicely decorated. The downstairs

needs a little Tender Loving Care in decorating ... furniture, DRAPES, paintings/wall hangings (art?), area rug all need to be replaced and improved with some color and aloha spirit. We found it outdated and very, very BROWN and DRAB. Also, lots of old stuff is stored in cabinets like old tv sets, modems, telephones, other tech stuff, etc. If we owned this condo (and we wish we did), we would definitely de-clutter cabinets and storage areas. Closet downstairs that contains lots of beach toys, chairs, games, etc. smells dank.

The unit was cleaned prior to our arrival; however, lots of improvement is needed in terms of the housecleaning service/company that the owners use. Rail going upstairs felt dirty and sticky. Window sills and screen door need cleaning. Downstairs wooden furniture did not feel cleaned. Upon our arrival, we discovered that the downstairs toilet continued to run and flush itself every 15 minutes. The downstairs television only received one station. We telephoned the company that oversees these things, and they sent someone out within half a day to correct the problems. Cable was never re-set-up but we still had many stations without Cable.

Great location

We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo is well appointed and all of our needs were met with the kitchen, beach gear, location to beach and restaurants. The condo was very clean and we would recommend it to other travelers.

Convenient, great view, lots of room...but

  • 3 of 5

Firstly, I need to express that this is my first experience with Home Away. I was looking for a convenient location, with an ocean view, 2 bedroom condo for two adults to comfortably stay in and cook in. Pros: Condo had all that we could need to be comfortable, cook and eat there, and the pool nearby was very nice. There was also a space under the stairs full of beach chairs, toys, etc. Internet, TV, cable, stereo provided. Unlimited long distance calling within US and Canada - lovely surprise. Air conditioning in bedrooms, just installed. Convenient location. Simple walk across the street to reach beach, restaurants, coffee and ice cream nearby. Master bedroom was lovely. Manual for the condo was relatively good. Beautiful views of the ocean. Cons: When booking there was a $100 difference between the cost quoted vs. credit card statement. When I tried to reach the owners, I didn't hear back from them till they called me to let me know we were 'upgraded', non-master bedroom was changed from a queen bed to two twins. When I called the owners back - it was all about the great changes, which I wasn't looking for initially. The cost difference was explained as the fee to use Home Away was passed to me. Continually reminded there was a hideaway bed in living room to use if I'd like a bigger bed. Personally, I'm too old to want to sleep on a hideaway bed, thank - you. When we arrived, very late, twin bed I was going to sleep in was filthy with toenails and snot on the sheets. The walls, light switches and doors were dirty. I understand the cleanliness issues was not the owner's fault, but the cleaners. I did inform them, and I hope they find a better service. Other bed, though narrow with rough sheets, was clean. Also, we had noise issues, repeatedly, with domestic disputes next door and homeless across the street at the beach. We had to worry about water escaping the shower every time we used it. Never did get the air conditioner to work in the 'kids' room. Not sure if the one in the master bedroom works as my travelling companion is allergic to them. Never did find the extra sheets for the hideaway bed. To be honest, I would rather not use this service or place again. I am rarely disappointed by hotels. If you walk into a room that has issues, you ask for another, and I always get it, if not an upgrade. The money I saved by cooking I would be happier spending on a comfortable room, that someone else cleans daily, and that someone else has to fix.
