About Jon & Shelley Benedict

We enjoy Managing and Operating our vacation rental personally. From our own experience as VRBO renters, dealing with a private Management company may not be the most pleasant experience and may feel like an impersonal process when planning your vacation. There is a little more flexibility dealing directly with the owner and we love being involved in communicating directly with our guests.

We take pride in offering our guests a great home away, providing our guest with a memorable Hawaiian experience, and for our guests to take away a small piece of the Aloha spirit.

Whether you are new to the island or one of our frequent guests, we believe that the Service we provide is what separates us from other owners. We have owned our condo since 2010 and from all the great reviews over the years it has been very rewarding to know we have had a small part in our guests Maui experience.

Jon & Shelley Benedict purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jon & Shelley Benedict chose Kihei

We have done a lot of research in choosing the perfect vacation rental on the island of Maui. The Kihei Akahi complex is centrally located on the island and is a personal favorite for many of our guests for that reason. With Kamaole Beach Park II (One of Maui's Best Beaches) for spending the day in the sun within steps of the condo, many fabulous restaurants & shopping right next door to the complex, and being Central to everything on the island, makes The Kihei Akahi and our condo a great choice.

What makes this condo unique

The Kihei Akahi is a clean, quiet, and a well manicured property. Our bottom floor end unit is convenient and easily accessible from the close parking stall. There is a large grass lanai between two community pools and a Tennis Court for a day of exercise. We offer air conditioning in the unit with ceiling fans and stationary fans for maximum comfort and more kitchen amenities than the average rental. The rental is fully stocked with all the amenities of a resort and more.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas in Kihei. The condo had everything we needed to entertain the kids and adults in our group. The location is second to none. The girls made the five minute drive to the Aquatic Centre to swim morning laps, we crossed the street to Kam II (the best beach in Kihei) to swim and SUP, in the evenings we took advantage of the gas bbq down by the pool or took a short walk to the gelato place and then watched the sunset and played Yahtzee for hours!

Jon was very easy to work with and contact. He went beyond what I expect of an owner in that he responded to questions right away, checked in with us along the way and made every effort to ensure our stay went well. He was fabulous. The condo was great as well. It had everything we needed, plenty of bedding, towels, beach supplies and kitchen items. GREAT location and parking spot! I would recommend this condo and would definitely deal with Jon again if we come back to Maui or head to StThomas :) Thank you, Jon!

Owner's Response: To our Future Guests looking at our place now. Does a review get any better to motivate you to hit the "Book it Now" button? Maybe the other many great reviews might help you with your decision? Come and experience one of the best and privately owned rentals in South Kihei Maui. The reviews speak for themselves and you won't be making a bad decision in making our home, your home away, while on vacation here in Maui. Thank you Kelly and family for such kind words about our home. We are very happy to hear that your family enjoyed their vacation in our place over the Christmas 2017 & New Years 2018 Holiday. These are the types of reviews that we love to hear and see and is the main reason for doing this business. We care about our Guests vacations and provide a completely stocked rental like no other to keep them coming back :) We look forward to hearing from you again in the future, at either of our homes, to spend another vacation with us. Have a blessed 2018 and beyond. Keep in touch and thank you again for saying such great things to our future Guests about our place here in Maui. Mahalo Nui Loa, Jon & Shelley

Comfortable and convenient to all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is cozy and well equipped. It does need some updating and modernization though. The location is so handy to the beaches and local shops, restaurants and attractions. Jon is a wonderful host who we had an opportunity to meet. He and Shelly couldn't do enough to ensure a great stay. And Jon was very open to our suggestions for a few ways to update the condo for future visits. The rental rate was good and the condo was well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. A reasonably priced, family oriented rental.

Nice ground floor unit with patio looking onto garden area. It was a treat to watch & listen to the various birds that visited each morning and evening. Unit was clean and had all usual condo amenities. Only a few hundred yards to the beach. Jonathon was prompt in resolving a couple of minor issues during our stay, a missing TV remote and a broken glass louvre on the master bedroom window. Lots of places within walking distance to eat, including the famous Coconuts fish tacos and the Cinnamon Roll Place.

Owner's Response: Aloha Future Guests, It is always a pleasure to receive a good review about our home in Maui, HI and this is why we enjoy doing this business.We value and appreciate all our Guests and want them to experience the best in taking home great memories. Thank you Terry for saying such nice things about our home, sharing with future Guests the convenience of our place to all the surrounding amenities, and hopefully we have the opportunity to Host you again, where we can turn this 4 Star into a 5 star experience. As everything cannot be perfect all the time, we do our best to make it such, and would love the opportunity to make up for a lost TV remote and broken window louvre. We look forward to hearing from you to stay with us again, and that is at either of our rentals, here in Maui, Hawaii or in St Thomas, USVI. Also on VRBO as our other rental listing. Have a blessed 2018 and beyond and we hope we keep in touch over the years to come. * We are exactly 150 yards from front door to one of the best beaches on island, Kamaole Beach Park II. Perfect for the family, where you can enjoy having a BBQ, the piece of mind of having a Lifeguard Station & bathroom facilities, good snorkeling, and a great place for the children to play in the soft sand with our beach toys.

Far exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Jon in the Virgin Islands a few years ago. We were the only two people in the restaurant so we struck up a conversation while waiting 45 min for a to go order. He mentioned his property in Maui a place that was on my bucket list. We stayed in touch over the years and we sent our last kid to college this year so we said it is time to go o Maui.

Jon and his wife have paid attention to every detail. Down to the great Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella. To having so many ice packs for you to take your lunch on the beach without worrying about your food and drinks getting warm. The crazy thing they even have several cooler options as well. It was truly like being at home because they have thought about everything.

The condo was in an awesome location steps from the beach and dozens of restaurants and shops. Everyone on the property was super nice. The condo was wonderfully decorated with a great kitchen and outdoor seating.

Again I would like to thank Jon and Shelley for a truly wonderful vacation and we will be back! The only negative is that we had to return home to the cold!

Owner's Response: Aloha Damon & Future Guests, What a great review and hits the heart, heavy with warm touches :) Yes, we had the pleasure of meeting Damon out in St Thomas, USVI and we invited him to stay with us here in Maui, at our wonderful 2 bedroom home in South Kihei and across the street from one of the best beaches, Kamaole Beach Park II. These are the types of reviews that encourages us to offer a higher standard and better product than most owners on island. As mentioned by Damon, we have thought of everything for our guests :) We want our guests to experience a relaxed, convenient, and prepared vacation, with a fully stocked home away. So, what are you waiting for, our future and welcomed Guests? Click the book it now and let us make your vacation on Maui as wonderful and convenient as the Damon Paul family. Thank you Damon for such kind words about our home for other future Guests to read about. It is very much appreciated when our Guests share their experience about our home with others. We hope to hear from you again in the future if coming back out to Maui. We welcome you anytime to stay with us again, and that includes our home in St. Thomas, USVI when the island returns back to normal from Hurricane Irma. We offer a repeat 10% off discount for future stays. You can take a look at our home there in St. Thomas at:, but at the current moment, and due to unable to offer a reservation, the site is down until about March or April 2018. Have a blessed and wonderful 2017 and beyond. Happy Holidays over the next few Months of celebration. Keep in touch and hope to talk to you soon our friend :) Mahalo Nui Loa, Jon & Shelley Owner/Property Manager Kihei Akahi Resort B105 (949)278-2745
