About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom w/California King + sofabed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

(Hawai'i Tax ID #167-211-4176-01)

Whether it's the coming heat of an Up-North Summer or the chill of a Down Under Winter, the welcome warmth and balmy breezes of Maui are the perfect perfect antidote! And we have the perfect place to hang out!

After approximately five minutes on our first visit to Kihei, we realized that calling it "paradise" was not an over-sell! Kama'ole Beach is one of the finest beaches anywhere: a place where people of all shapes and sizes, ages and backgrounds, can just Be Themselves.

It's called "Aloha", and this area has it in abundance.

(NOTE: if you're in the military, police, a firefighter or paramedic, ask about our Public Service Discount.)

Our place in Kihei is a comfortable, fully-appointed pied-à-terre you can call "home" while you explore the wonderful, diverse island of Maui. Furnished in a tropical theme, including works by local Maui artists, you'll find a king-size bed in the bedroom, queen-size sofa-bed in the living room, deluxe kitchen and 1 bathroom, with BBQ, two pools and tennis courts on the grounds.

It gets better: one of the world's most magnificent beaches is literally at the foot of your driveway! Kamaole welcomes you with its soft, soft sand and water that's warm even first thing for that early morning swim! Who knows? You may find yourself in the company of sea turtles or fish you only see in doctors' offices. But mostly, it's a great place to 'hang loose, brah!'

You're walking distance from neat little eateries and shops, as you settle into Maui's 30-mph-on-the-main-street lifestyle. Cooking 'at home' or on the barbecue? Safeway, Times Supermarket and Foodland are just a short drive away with everything you need for a family dinner or entertaining new-found friends.

We have views of the ocean, mountains and garden, free wi-fi and NO ROAD NOISE. Air conditioning? We have it, but who needs? The west-facing lanai catches those ocean breezes to keep you naturally cool.

Want to go up-scale? You're five minutes from Wailea. Want a slice of history from the time of Kamehameha III? Lahaina is half an hour away. Take off up-country to Kula, climb past the clouds to majestic Haleakala, take a snorkel trip to Molokini, or hit wild west Makawao, where paniolos and artists live side by side; then be home in time to hear the conch blowers bid 'aloha' to the sun for another day. Whatever your Hawai'ian adventure, our place can be your place to come home to.

* Newly renovated

* Tastefully furnished with island living in mind

* King size bed in bedroom

* Queen size hide-a-bed sofa in living room

About Amelia

Amelia and Drew live in East Sooke BC (just outside Victoria), with 2 cats and a border terrier named Millie. We have 5 grown children who live across Canada and in Australia. We can't wait to share special moments in Maui with them and create fabulous memories in our little piece of paradise.

Amelia purchased this condo in 2011

Why Amelia chose Kihei

We love travelling and have seen lots of wonderful places all over the world; but when the opportunity came to visit Maui, we jumped at the chance. Wow - what a beautiful place this is. We have truly been blessed with the ability to buy this property, and we are delighted to share our family home with you.

What makes this condo unique

View - CHECK.

Beach access - CHECK.

Pool - CHECK.

Walkability: that became one of our top criteria for any place we would buy, this place has that. We walk to the beach in the morning to swim, then walk the length of the beach and come back via the road. You can walk to some neat restaurants, like Cafe O'Lei and Moose McGillicuddy's, as well as shops and 3 supermarkets. We love the farmers' markets and the weekend swap meet in Kahului is worth the drive (the Philip Soo batiks were purchased there). We also love the fact that total strangers say 'hi' on the street and that you can feel like a regular in a restaurant or bar just by coming back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have such a lovely condo. Great job on the reno!!

We arrived during a big rain storm and were very pleased to find such a clean and welcoming condo. If we return to Maui we will definitely contact you again.

We had a great vacation.

Lovely Condo in a beautiful complex

  • 5 of 5

Drew and Amelia's condo is in a wonderful complex in Kihei! Quiet, immaculately landscaped and close to everything- the beach, shops, and restaurants.

The condo itself is very well stocked and beautifully decorated! The owners are great to deal with and are so organized! Very much appreciated!

We'd didn't want to leave and look forward to another visit in the near future!

We had a perfect stay here in Kihei, won‘t forget it!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The beach, many restaurants and shops are nearby in walking distance. Kihei is a nice Place, not too touristic and a good start for trips to other spots. We loved it.

Great condo, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo unit within a beautiful condo association. Some of the greatest things about this place are:

- Very close to the beach; Kihei Akahi is right across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in Kikehi with a crosswalk at the entrance to the condo unit. The unit itself is at the back of the condo association, but it is a very quiet area and a very pleasant ~3min walk to the beach amongst beautiful flowering trees and bushes, luscious grass, pools, exotic birds, etc.

- The condo itself was very well-furnished, having everything our party of two needed and more. There was also ample beach supplies (umbrellas, folding chairs, boogie boards, etc. I would say more than enough supplies for a family of 4 or 5. The condo is also located such that there are partial views of the pool, the landscaped grounds, and of the ocean as well.

- The location of the condo within the city of Kihei itself was very good. Kihei is a very long, spread-out town but this particular condo is in the heart of the city, across from the nicest (in my opinion) beach, and within walking distance of food and services. The city of Kihei is also nicely located relative to the rest of the island - only a short drive to Wailea (a city offering stunning beaches, resorts and shopping), ~25 min to the airport, and ~30-45 minutes to the northern beautiful cities of Lahaina, etc.

- The condo owners were GREAT to deal with. Quick to correspond, quick to complete transactions, detailed in their correspondences, and helpful in every way.

- The condo does have A/C although we found it did not reach the main bedroom; there were ample floor and ceiling fans to help generate a breeze in this room but we found it remained warm overnight - not so much so that we couldn't sleep, but if you are the type of person who runs-hot this may pose a difficulty for you.

Overall, this was essentially a perfect stay and a perfect trip. 10/10 would recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Wow ... we really didn't dictate that to you! (Just so that's clear ...) Thank you for the review -- and that's a good point about the A/C, for people to keep in mind. Aloha!

Great location and more!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this condo were fantastic to deal with. We enjoyed our first time in Maui when we stayed in this condo back in June 2013. The condo had everything you needed including snorkeling gear! Beautiful lanai overlooking the pool with beautiful sunsets. The beach was literally a minute walk across the road from the condo. We have been dying to get back to Maui. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Tay-Jann! It's wonderful hosting you, and you've keyed on a couple of the favorite things I think about when I think of the condo: the quick walk to the beach and watching sunsets from the lanai (with someone, somewhere, blowing a conch shell!). Mahalo!
