About Daniel

After visiting Maui on vacation for the first time, I decided right then, that I wanted a slice of Paradise to keep for myself. I later returned and bought an elegant 1 BD unit, as seen at VRBO listing # 305826. I enjoyed visiting it now and then, but got as much satisfaction out of turning other people on to vacations they'll never forget. So I bought this unit the following year, to offer some versatility for those wanting something even MORE affordable and didn't need as much space. It's right down the hall from my other, so some people spend a little time in each unit, or lodge other family members that may attend a wedding or golf tournament. Best of both worlds!

Daniel purchased this condo in 2011

Why Daniel chose Kihei

Kihei Akahi has long been established as one, if not THE finest complex in South Kihei. Beautifully landscaped grounds, lush foliage, tennis courts ( I used to be semi-good YEARS ago), very clean units, pools, spacious parking, and great security. Right across the street from the finest Beaches in South Maui and very near great shopping and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Many people comment on their love for the tropical birds that come alive when the sun comes up in the morning. Nature's own alarm clock. Much better than the one that gets you up for work every day back home. Also guests love the kitchen and Queen Bed, instead of the Murphy Beds found in many studios. Also it's decorated by a pro designer, so it's not your run of the mill generic, white-walled condo most people rent. Really feels like home. You may actually want to hang OUT in it a little!

Great unit with an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay. The unit is directly across the street from a beautiful beach and walking distance to lots of great shops and restaurants. Kihei is a great Beach town with so many cool and fun things to do. Great snorkeling in the area and so much natural beauty it can literally take your breath away. It's also an easy 25 minute drive from the airport and a great central location to check out other places on the island. This spot was fantastic and I can't recommend it highly enough. I'd go back in a heartbeat. You won't regret it!

Owner's Response: Aloha Tad & Mallory, So pleased to have two more satisfied guests. I agree that Kihei has a lot to offer and is centrally located, with easy access to other areas too. Much more affordable than Ka'anapali, Lahaina, and Wailea. Very happy you would recommend it to others and of course to return again one day to Mother Maui. Mahalo . . . Daniel

Washer and dryer

Air conditioner

Fast wifi

Good-sized kitchen

Shower stall

Fast response from owner

The awesome daily rate for all of this


Only one: No option to take stairs up. Have to use elevator every time.

Owner's Response: Aloha Julie, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you loved everything. You mentioned no stairs, which confuses me. There is a stairwell right outside the door, and another on the other end of the hallway, in addition to the elevator. You should have seen the EXIT sign on the door to the stairs, as you walked out of the condo. At any rate . . . thanks again for booking with me and for the kind words. I hope you can make it back again soon. Mahalo, Daniel

Owner's Response: Aloha! Thanks for a great review. Very pleased you found all you needed for a great vacation. Most people comment on the great central location. I have had guests that didn't even rent a car while in Kihei, although there's SO many great places to visit on Maui, if one has the time. Do come back again and have a great Autumn! Mahalo, Daniel

Nice studio condo

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I took a girls trip to the island for a few days and really enjoyed our stay at Daniel's studio. It was very clean and comfortable, and included everything we needed to have the best time (beach mats, umbrella, cooler, fridge, a/c, etc.). Although it's just a partial ocean view from the balcony, the view is really beautiful, and the condo unit is very quiet. The location was perfect because it is only a short walk to a variety of beaches, restaurants, cafes, stores/shops, and only a quick drive to get to even more. Daniel left us with great suggestions on where to eat and what to see/do, and we were very happy with our choice of where to stay while on vacation!

Owner's Response: Aloha Anastasia, Mahalo for the review. You made it sound so good, I want to live vicariously through you, hehe. Seriously . . . making great memories, makes it all worthwhile for me. Please return one day soon, and many thanks for recommending my slice of paradise to others. Until next time, Daniel

Lovely, Quiet Studio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at Daniel's studio. Felt right at home as soon as we entered. Well laid out and uniquely decorated making it very comfortable. Great corner unit, with the Tradewinds blowing daily keeping it cool. The lanai was a treat, very private with the birds and blooming Plumeria. If your up early enough you will catch the sunrise and excellent sunsets in the evening. Well stocked with everything you need. Short walk thru nice grounds to great beaches and good location for exploring rest of the island. Restaurants and shops within walking distance. Building is very quiet and studio location private which we greatly appreciated. Communicating with Daniel was easy and quick. Would highly recommend this condo. Mahalo, Lee & Ed

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thanks for another great review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the lanai is pretty special. I call it Nature's own alarm clock. Waking up to chirping birds, beats an annoying alarm sound ANY day. Thanks for everything, and hope to see you again next year. Mahalo, Daniel
