Overview

About the property

Condominium Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Kihei Akahi is a remodeled studio with a private, tropical view of palms and flowers. This comfortable vacation rental has a queen-size wall bed that easily folds up to save space, full kitchen with a new stove, refrigerator, Italian tile floor, ceiling fan, 25 inch TV, DC, phone, along with a washer and dryer within the unit for convenience. Enjoy the quiet and privacy of the outdoor patio (lanai) at this Hawaiian garden condo. Nice pool and tennis courts are available on this vacation rental property.

Kihei Akahi is located one mile north of the magnificent Wailea resorts and golf courses. Across the road from these condos is beautiful Kamaole Beach Park II in South Kihei, one of the most picturesque, fine white sand beaches in Maui, which also has excellent snorkeling.

The great location is close to two additional gorgeous sandy beaches, many shops, restaurants, a great health food store, and a full mailing/copy center with internet access. Since these vacation rentals are easy walking distance to shops and many restaurants, you could save the expense of a rental car.

About Michael Gach

We live less than a mile from our Kihei Kai Nani condo and Kihei Akahi studio -- so we can personally keep it in excellent condition. We love Maui and our condos enable us to share the Aloha spirit with others. We especially LOVE the ocean. Ever since we first met and swam in synch with each other, we knew a place like Maui was meant for us. As a family, we share these gorgeous beaches with our 7 year old and enjoy every time.

We find it fulfilling to share special places, beaches, and the best places to eat with our guests -- since we know the area like the palm of our hand. Kihei beaches are the best, and have fabulous weather. There is no where else on earth we'd rather be. We hope you'll enjoy all that Hawaii on your next vacation.

Michael Gach purchased this studio in 2002

Why Michael Gach chose Kihei

We chose to buy this special vacation rental because of its air flow, and privacy. Plus this condo is so close to three gorgeous beaches and a great variety of restaurants.

You can easily save hundreds of dollars by not renting a car, since our condo is in such a fabulous location. We'll let you know how to get picked up at the airport and be driven to the door -- its ideal.

I asked a condo management company that I trusted what vacation rental property was most popular and was rated highest by most guests. I feel fortunate to be guided to have a unit at Kihei Akahi, especially being in the private location of our studio. Over 90% of the units face over other condos, parking lots, or roof tops - however our unit is completely private. If you choose our private studio your be with the palms, birds, and tropical flowers.

What makes this studio unique

Unique private, secluded, comfortable, upgraded studio with wifi. Two nice pools, BBQs, 3-minute walk to a gorgeous beach, plus Hope (Marie) who will make sure that everything is right, so you can enjoy our comfortable condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Michael & Barbara,

We want to thank you for allowing to stay at your condo. It was just what we wanted and more - the remodeled condo is outstanding - great kitchen, comfortable bedroom and living room that seemed spacious, and even a elegant bathroom. Everything was close - it was a great location.

We truly loved it.

Awesome studio

  • 5 of 5

Great location, a quick walk to the beach. The unit itself has everything and I mean everything you can possibly need. From beach chairs, umbrella, towels, snokeling gear, I could go on and on! We were welcomed with some refreshments in the fridge and it was just a great start to a wonderful 6 days. The owner and host are amazing people who were at our beck and call if we needed them and it was nice that they checked up on us to make sure everything was acceptable. You won't regret booking here!

Owner's Response: We love to hear back from our guests and so often its glowing, wonderful feedback. This is such a special private, secluded studio. You hear the tropical birds and when you're out on our lanai patio -- you'll see nobody, and nobody will see you. There's just tropical flowers, bushes and trees. The condo has numerous windows for natural air flow and lots of light. What's amazing is that these windows are never in any direct sun! We provide wifi and a fully equipped, clean kitchen. There are 2 gorgeous swimming pools, across from 3 beautiful beaches, a private tennis court and 2 state of the art BBQs. You'll feel like you're on a special vacation in Maui in our cozy condo.

Owner's Response: We're glad to hear that our condo supported your tropical vacation in Maui. I hope you were able to enjoy the 3 beautiful sands beaches that are just a 5 to 10 minute walk from our lovely condo. Having wifi and the washer/dryer within the unit plus two different gorgeous pools and a private tennis court on the property are nice features.

Lovely studio!

  • 5 of 5

I really really enjoyed my stay - it's exactly as advertised. The bathroom (shower in particular) is well used but the entire place was clean, comfortable and close to great beaches and amenities. Very private also and the lanai was a favourite place to relax at the start and end of the day. The kitchen was well stocked and I was able to make use of the coolers and other things in the closet. The treats and welcome by Hope were a very nice touch and she's a fantastic lady. I had noticed that the lamp on the dining table were not working and noted it to Hope when she called to say hi (just so they knew) and the next day her husband had come and replaced it! They really went above all expectations and were really friendly. I accidentally left a blouse in the dryer the day I left and Hope did her best to follow up after it although it seems to have been missed. My fault though as I left it behind. All in all, I really loved my time here and would love to return on my next trip to Maui. Mahalo!!! :D

Owner's Response: We love to support people to have a fabulous stay in our private Maui studio. Our hostess Hope make sure that guests have everything they need and that everything in the condo is right. Besides the beach chairs, towels, cooler, boogie board and umbrella, there's 2 deluxe swimming pools, a private tennis court and a 4 minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach. Dream come true.

Great Vacation Getaway - nothing left wanting and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Vacation Getaway for 2 guests. The unit included everything we needed for our 2 1/2 week stay. The kitchen is well stocked and the knives were sharp and usable. The Host (Hope) was just great and when we needed help she was there to please. The whole experience was very positive and I am sure we will be back sometime in the future. The location was perfect for our needs and we had a few friends staying close by. South Kihei is a great location and offers something for everyone and so close to great beaches. Having Fred's, Moose Mcgillicutty's and 808 Bistro so close by is a real plus.

Owner's Response: We love to hear how our guests appreciated our condo, its location, our host support, its fully equiped kitchen and how our private Maui studio served as a great vacation getaway. There's two gorgeous pools and a tennis court on the property. When you are on our patio lanai you will not see anyone, and no-one can see you. Given the convenient location close to 3 great restaurants and 3 beautiful sandy beaches, its fabulous to have a secluded vacation studio.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you loved our private studio, which faces away for everything, so you can't see anyone -- just the natural beauty of the land, palms, flowers and tropical birds. Since it's a studio, it's small but has so much natural lights from all the windows and the sun never shines harshly on them, which keeps the unit cool. As you can see with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and wifi all within the unit and the special attention we provide -- its a very special place to stay.
