Tropical Paradise in Maui - "Palekaiko" at Kihei Akahi :-)

Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 10 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

We are thrilled to present 'Palekaiko' at Kihei Akahi - our little piece of 'paradise' on Maui!

Our condo is a wonderful place where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets, warm trade winds and fabulous white sandy beaches only steps from your door. Enjoy your morning Kona coffee on our ground-floor walk-out lanai surrounded by lush tropical plants and manicured lawns.

The Kihei Akahi is a quiet and secure complex that has two swimming pools and barbeque areas and a tennis court. Centrally located, this beautifully landscaped complex is located in sunny South Kihei where only six to eight inches of rain a year and a consistent 75-90 degrees (25-32 degrees Celsius) almost assuring you of a warm, relaxing sunny vacation.

Our family-friendly condo is fully equipped. Furnishings in the master bedroom are Pier 1 and the second bedroom has a custom murphy bed and queen-sized bed with a matching headboard. The master ensuite is freshly remodelled! In an effort to make it easier for people with mobility issues to manage, we removed the wall between the vanity & toilet/shower area, we installed a wider door, a 'comfort' height toilet and a low profile shower tray. The guest bathroom has a bathtub, a must for families with little ones!

The kitchen has GE kitchen appliances, and we also installed a full-sized Bosch washer and dryer, and a Friedrich wall-mounted split-system air conditioning unit. Living and dining room furnishings are by Ratana, providing Palekaiko with an 'Island' flavour. We no longer have Hawaiian-style louvered windows, we have energy-efficient, double-glazed Low-E windows that keep our suite cooler and quieter. A La-Z-Boy patio set on the lanai bring the comfort outside. We also supply beach toys, beach chairs, beach towels, mats and even a cooler to make your beach experience the best!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was very pleased with the accommodations. The condo is comfortable, spacious, well stocked and felt like home away from home! Residents, other guests and onsite manager are very friendly and kind. I could easily live there full time! I would definitely recommend the condo to anyone and would stay there again. Activities: Highly recommend zip lining! Had a blast!

Great location and amazing host

  • 5 of 5

The location is great. Within walking distance to multiple beaches in the Kihei area, and a short drive away from many more. The property is well maintained and very clean. We had a small toddler and it was a perfect home away from home.

Above it all, Della was an amazing host. She promptly answered all my questions. I had some issues that she went above and beyond to help me resolve.

Definitely recommend, and would stay here myself on my next visit.

A lovely *quiet* place to stay in South Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Location location location! This quiet complex is ideally located across the street from Kama’ole Beach Park II. The unit itself is at the farther end but that only makes its quieter. The unit backs onto the pool entrance and the parking spot is pretty practical too. We had 4 adults and 1 child (staying w/ parents) and it didn’t feel overcrowded. The condo’s proximity to the beach and good dining out options makes it very practical and an excellent value for money.

If you’re looking for a crazy, party-prone complex, this isn’t the place for you (the average age of residents is about 65) but if you’re looking for a tranquil getaway, it’s a gem.

From the moment we arrived for our 14 night stay it felt like home from home. I am sure we will be back to Akahi for more vacations in the future it really is situated in the perfect spot in Kihei. Aloha and thankyou to Della and Keith.

Hawaian Breeze

  • 5 of 5

Kihei Akahi was easy to get to from the airport and push button entry at condo was very convenient. The condo on ground floor was close to the pool with very clean great BBQs, which we only used once. The unit had everything you needed from beach towels, boogies boards, snorkel and coolers to plastic dishes and wine glasses for picnic or pool area. It's nice to have two washrooms with great showers. (Especially with 5 people). Air con kept the living room nice and cool but made the balcony quite hot so we would turn if off if we wanted to sit outside.

Palekaiko is a great spot to stay for travelling anywhere on the island and coming back to relax with a coktail on the beach in time for the gorgeous sunset. We took off to Hana for a night, wish we would have stayed a couple nights. Lots of adventure and hiking areas.

I advise getting a guide book and planning the activities you'd like to experience. There is so much to do.

Also so many amazing restaurants. We loved 3's, 5palms, cafe au lait, monkey pods, Gannons.

Cafe des amis in Paia is great. Da Fish Truck in Hana was very tasty. So many great spots.

Della was very easy to get hold of and very pleasant.

Yes we would definelty come back here Our three daughters came to meet us and it worked out fine.

We all had the best holiday in paradise.

The flowers and their perfume fragrant smell amazed us everyday.

We Love Kehei Akahi

  • 5 of 5

The condo, the grounds, and Kameole II were the perfect location for us and our family on our anniversary. The goal was to grab some towels and hit the beach. We accomplished that every day. Thanks to Della for the personal touch which made our visit even more memorable. See you ASAP as we are already planning the next visit.
