Custom paint on the walls, and matching lanai curtains, create a soothing, colorful, and pleasant way to unwind at the end of the day.

Lots of chaise lounges and a shower provided at the pool, as well as beach towels from the condo.

The lanai provides a great place to enjoy your dinner and glass of wine, or that morning cup of coffee while you awaken to the delightful sounds of the many species of tropical birds, with a gentle, medicinal breeze. Partial Ocean View, and Lush Tropical Foliage can be enjoyed from the Lanai, and also the view of two majestic mtns. New Serta Perfect Sleeper Queen Bed will provide hours of much needed sleep after your many activities, but the boogie boards and beach chairs in the spacious closet, will beckon you from your slumber, to get a jump on, yet another sunny day. Year round 85 Degree temps will bask you in warmth and make you forget all your troubles as soon as you put away your belongings. Everything you'll need is here, so just bring something to swim in, or play tennis in. Many great shops and restaurants are super close by if you'd like to sample some Hawaiian culinary treats, or add to your wardrobe. The Shops of Wailea are 5 minutes away, as well as World Class Golf Courses. Any activity you can imagine is readily available too.

Super Fast Internet and Free Long Distance Calling to N. America provided, in case you want to brag to your friends where you are right now. View your photos, DVDs from your laptop, or 100's of cable channels on the new 26' Hi-Def LCD Flatscreen TV, if you insist on spending some time indoors.

Come to Maui. You won't find a more affordable and memorable place to stay, or desirable vacation Mecca. You won't want to leave, but I'll save your spot for next year. Romance abounds on Maui. You won't need to search for your favorite getaway destination, ever again.

Mahalo,

Daniel

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 South Maui

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!

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

Great Location and Studio

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed the location of Daniel's condo. Great studio style for 1-2 people who are on the go and want easy access to all that the island of Maui offers. Close proximity to the beach was a bonus. Reasonable price along with all the amenities provided (beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and coolers) was a great addition. Other units renting in the area don't provide as much. Unit itself was very accommodating and provided us with everything we needed to relax and socialize with our friends who rented the unit right next door and below them. Was truly an enjoyable week, very easy to contact Daniel, and would recommend this to others. Hope to return one day.

Owner's Response: Aloha Dayna, Wow, a great review, thank you! You were a joy to have as a guest, and your friends and I go back a few years now, as they have rented with me before, and have sent many other Cool Canadians my way. The more the merrier. It's becoming like family now. Glad things were top-notch, and do hope to do it again next year. Mahalo, Daniel

Great studio condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It is in a great location in Kihei, right across the street from Kama'ole 2. Many great beaches are just a short walk or drive away and there are many dining options nearby. The condo has a good layout and feels larger than it really is. We really liked the extras included - boogie boards, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, and fins for snorkeling. Daniel was great to work with. He's very responsive in his communications and provided detailed instructions for what to do when checking in/out. We would definitely stay here again.

Daniel's condo was Awesome!!!

The price was reasonable and it is a nice complex.

The condo had everything that you needed to enjoy the beach and the owner is nice and friendly.

A great place for 1 or 2 people,

I would stay here again on my next trip to Maui.

Great location and unit

  • 4 of 5

This condo is clean and well equipped for your stay in Kihei. The kitchen has everything you need to eat in (including plastic plates and cups for a trip to the pool BBQ). Only thing I would add would be a few more drawers in the unit to store clothing. The bathroom is very well stocked with towels and cleaning supplies.

Owner's Response: Aloha Michelle, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. You probably didn't look in the chest at the end of the bed. Plenty of storage space there. Glad you found everything else you needed. Do come back again and have great New Year. Mahalo, Daniel
