About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

Our 2 bedroom 2 bath condo received a complete renovation so we can offer all the amenities the discriminating traveler desires. From the stainless steel kitchen complete with all small appliances, glassware and cookware to the Select Comfort Sleep Number adjustable mattresses on the king and twin beds, from the custom bath and shower areas with hair dryer to the flat screen TVs with DVD players in the bedrooms and living room, to the full-size front loading washer and dryer in the unit (with free laundry detergent!)- - we strive to fulfill your needs. We provide a small library of books and games if you want to spend an evening inside just relaxing. And of course - FREE WiFi!

Why the Owner Chose Kihei: : Of all the places we looked at to purchase, Kihei Akahi offered a superb sunny location within walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. We discovered that many times when it rains in Lahaina and Kaanapali, Kihei is usually sunny and warm. Located across from Kaamaole Beach II (voted the best beach on Maui several times) and offering 2 pools with BBQ facilities and tennis courts on site added to Kihei Aklahi's qualities. Boat trips, whether for scuba diving, snorkeling or rentals can be found within walking distance at Kihei Boat ramp.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:: Year Purchased: 1995 - The outstanding view from our lanai is next to Heaven itself. We have over 180 degree view from the west Maui mountains to Molikini Crater. From December to April whales frolic in the waters off Kaamaole Beach as if there to be your private performers. And if sunsets aren't breathtaking enough, looking out the front door up Haleakala Volcano at sunrise surely will do the job.

Owner Description/Comments:: We, Sue and Bill, have been condo owners in Kihei Maui since 1991. We have traveled to all of the Hawaiian islands since 1983 and truly believe Maui No Kai Oi - Maui is the Best. Our sons were raised with many trips to Hawaii learning to appreciate the Hawaiian sea life, culture and natural beauty. We hope to be able to continue to share this wonderful island paradise with YOU making our 'home away from home' Your Vacation Home in Paradise!

About Susan Everett

We, Sue and BIll Everett, love to travel and have been traveling the Hawaiian islands since 1985. We have two grown sons in Ohio and Utah and the world's best dog, Brownie! Although we'd love to spend more time in Kihei work makes that impossible so we love to share our island paradise condo with our guests.

Susan Everett purchased this condo in 1992

Why Susan Everett chose Kihei

After seeing all the Hawaiian islands and all parts of each island, we decided on Kihei because of its dry, sunny climate. We noticed when we stayed on the "West side" it rained quite a lot, but Kihei was nice and sunny. We have not regretted our purchse one single minute!! The office staff are helpful and keep Kihei Akahi running smoothly. Plus our board of directors take a hands on approach to every situation so no detail gets overlooked.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit of our condo has to be the lanai and the awesome ocean views. During whale season, have a seat, pickup the binoculars and its better than any whale watch trip. And of course, theres no better place to see the beautiful Maui sunsets than on your own comfortable lanai.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The condo is everything you promised, and we are enjoying it very much. Our friends who live here were very impressed too! The view is outstanding, the unit is sparkling clean, and we have been very pleased with our choice."

Assigned parking space close to elevator. Video game console not provided but easy hook-up for your system is provided on TV in 2nd bedroom. Free local calls and answering machine provided so you don't miss reservation confirmations!

Our lanai overlooks the upper pool, BBQ area and offers exquisite ocean views. Whale sightings are plentiful from December to April. It's an easy stroll (300 paces) to the ocean and we offer beach chairs, mats, boogie boards, and kids share the numerous buckets, shovels and beach toys for sand castle building.

D-615 at Kehei Akahi had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was in good repair at this condo and having the trunk with beach supplies was a bonus. The view was spectacular and the kitchen was well stocked. Due to food allergies for some of our group we had to eat in more often and we found what we needed - even some spices! We did leave a few more and some oatmeal packets for the next quests. Susan, we did accidentally drop and break a salad plate and we apologize for that. We did not get a chance to replace it as it was just before we left. Our family had a lovely time and we thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo.

Owner's Response: We are so glad the condo fulfilled your needs. Although I don't do a lot of cooking when Bill and I are at the condo, when I do I enjoy having all the gadgets, pots, pans, utensils etc. to prepare and serve a great meal. As guests suggest items they miss having we attempt to supply them if feasible. No need to worry about one plate. Accidents happen, inventory decreases and replacements are secured. Hopefully you had a safe trip home. Sue & Bill

Owner's Response: We aim to please our guests and love to receive reviews like yours. We,too, think the view from the lanai is the best on Maui - great for breakfast with whale watching in season or evening pupus and sunsets! Hopefully you'll return in the future and take advantage of our repeat guest discount. Aloha and Mahalo, Sue and Bill

Our Stay in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at your condo, D615 in Kihei, was great. The unit is furnished with everything one would need. The location and view are terrific! Your advance instructions were complete and gave us all we needed to enjoy our stay. The only thing we would add is air conditioning, as you have stated you hope to install in 2018. Thank you Sue for a great time in Maui!

P.S. Thanks for the heads up on 808 Bistro. We enjoyed our meal there!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the condo and Maui. Also glad you found 808 Bistro to your liking. We are hesitant to suggest one restaurant over another because all restaurants close to the condo have been consistently great over the years and don't want guests to miss out on any of them. At the same time we do try to provide everything necessary so guests can prepare and enjoy their meals in the condo. Hope you had safe travels home and can return someday. Sue & Bill

Sunset Views and easy walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great views from the balcony! The condo is located in the heart of Kihei with easy walking to the beach and a few restaurants. Inside the condo, the floors are tiled with carpet in the bedrooms. The condo felt spacious with my family of 4. Although I didn't cook much, the kitchen had everything you need. Condo area is quiet and grounds are well maintained. The main drawback was how warm the condo is in July despite having fans in each room and being on the top floor. I'm sure the fans and tradewinds would have been sufficient if it was any other month. Sue is a responsive owner and followed up with me quickly despite the time difference.

Owner's Response: We are glad you were pleased with the condo and found Kihei Akahi to your liking. The staff works diligently to keep the grounds, pools and BBQ areas in pristine condition for guests' enjoyment. Summers in Hawaii have been getting warmer and we are in the process of getting permission to install a 3-split A/C system so all rooms will have A/C, not just the living room as many other units do. Although I have been reluctant to do this installation because of the increase burden on the fragile electric grid, Maui Electric has made great environmentally favorable strides to serve the island's customers. We are looking forward to pleasing our future customers with A/C when the summer months heat up and hope they will be responsible with A/C usage.
