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 Studio 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 Studio 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!

Comfortable, organized, well stocked helpful items, beautiful view from balcony.
My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights here and were very comfortable. Lovely breezes flow through this unit. I suggest taking the stairs that are right near the front door instead of the elevator when going to and fro since it is 1 level up from the parking ground level. Salt, pepper and oil are in the lower slide out next to the stove. I missed that during my search for them on the first day. Nice thick beach towels, backpack beach chairs made our beach trips comfortable. Even had fins and mask for snorkling. Daniel provided helpful lists of things to do, restaurants, trip tips to sites and best of Maui. Thank you Daniel for making our stay wonderful. Missing 1 star only because of soda bed not made up for my friend. Daniel made up for that with a $50 refund. We will definately come back for a stay here the next time in Maui. Great location to some of Maui's finest beaches. Thank you Daniel.
Thanks for the nice review. Glad you found everything you needed, once you explored a little.
Yes, I neglected to leave extra bedding for the sofa sleeper. You didn't specify that ahead of time, and the inquiry just said for two people, so I assumed the Queen bed would be all you'd need. I was off-island, so couldn't bring a set by, though there were some odd and end sheets and blankets there to use, just not fitted. Glad we got things settled though, and I thank you for rolling with it. Most importantly, I'm glad you'd like to make a return visit. Yes, please do so, and next time I'll know beforehand.
Great location and a wonderful condo unit!
Thank you so much for the use of your lovely condo. It was absolutely perfect for the two of us, a home away from home. The unit was very clean and very well maintained. I couldn't believe how well stocked, everything you could need and more. The balcony is so private, no adjacent balconies on this corner unit and overlooking what you could only describe as a botanical garden. We would just sit on the balcony and admire the tropical view and bird watch. It's a nice change to be woken up by the sound of birds rather than an alarm clock. Our great host Daniel gave us all the info needed prior to our departure and left nothing to chance. Very good at anticipating his guests needs. The location is perfect, right across from Kamaole Beach II and many shops and restaurants within walking distance.
Mahalo Daniel for a perfect stay in Maui!!

Aloha Doris & Chris,
Wow! Great Review!
I just remodeled the entire kitchen and bathroom vanity, this week. New Cherry cabinets with granite counter tops and stainless sinks. New lighting fixtures too. Plus, all new appliances! I should get you to write the new description for my VRBO pages, haha. I couldn't say it better myself. So glad everything was perfect.
Thanks very much for staying with me and for taking the time for this review, a month later. Do come back again and enjoy the new features. The birds will still be there. Have a great summer on Calgary!
Great little treasure
Thanks Daniel - your condo is a great little spot close to beach, restaurants and stores. Very well stocked too. Enjoyed our stay, even though it was short a perfect spot.
Only negative wind howled all night long.
Kelly & Laurie
Well, it's the first time someone has deducted a star because of the wind. I wish I had control of that.
At any rate, thanks for the review, and glad you loved the rest of it.
Mahalo and do come back again!
Wonderful stay on Maui
Condo was wonderful. Everything was well thought out to accommodate visitors. Location was also excellent. Highly recommend this VRBO. Daniel, the owner, was very helpful in providing information about Maui.
Thanks for the nice review. So glad you found everything you needed. Thanks for taking the time for a review. Hope you have a great Spring, and do come back again!
This studio condo is great for 2 people. It has all the amenities. Located right across from the beach. It's stocked with beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc. You don't need to bring or buy anything (except food). Daniel is very easy to communicate with. He's very quick to get back to you. If there is something you feel should be in the unit, just call him (thanks for the Ove' Glove!)
This unit is located on the back corner of the building. It sees very little sun. You'll get it in the late afternoon. Pros? You won't need to use the a/c. Con? you don't get the sunset. BUT the beach is 5 minutes away. You can catch the sunset there. There was a rooster outside our window who gave us our wake up call at 5:00 am, and that got the other birds going. We are early risers so it didn't both us.
We would definitely rent from Daniel again. Mahalo and we hope to return in 2019.

Aloha Kevin & Sandra,
Thanks for sharing your experiences with everyone, including me.
Yes, the beach is about 150 yrds away. If it takes 5 minutes for you, then you stopped and smelled the exotic floral patches on the walkway down to the main road.
Yes, the birds are a favorite of most. Same before nightfall. Only lasts 10 minutes or so each time, but pretty powerful and spiritually soothing.
You two had a nice long stay. Do hope to see you again next year. Best of Luck with all you do . . . .
Have a great '18. Mahalo !
Just What We Needed
We needed a place to stay for a few days in Kihei and we were so happy to find this condo. The owner has updated many features and worked hard to make sure it worked for us. He was very available to answer any questions and was a pleasure to do business with. The balcony height is just over the trees and we could see the ocean in the distance. The condo unit itself is in a secluded area of the complex away from the road and the Hawaiian birds in the trees added to our overall happy experience. Thank you for letting us stay there. It was just what we needed.
Addicted to Maui
David and Valerie
Thanks for wonderful review! Many people read these, so I appreciate it greatly.
Glad you loved the condo. I am very fond of the garden setting off the lanai too. The birds sound off with the rising and setting of the sun daily. Myself and others find it very soothing. It only lasts a few minutes, but adds to the serenity.
Mahalo and do come back again. Yes, Maui is highly addicting!
