Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
My condo at Kihei Akahi C-108 is not just a vacation rental, it is my second home. I personally visit several times a year to make sure it is properly prepared for your enjoyment. One of Kihei's best beaches is located across the street from this tastefully decorated condominium. After a day on the beach relaxing in your beach chair, return in the evening for a spectacular sunset.
Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and beautifully landscaped gardens of Kihei Akahi from the private lanai. Palm trees growing next to the lanai gently sway in the tropical breeze.
Shopping and numerous restaurants are within walking distance. Furnishings have been carefully selected from a local furniture store to make your stay a pleasant one. A well-planned, fully-equipped kitchen will make cooking seem effortless. Relax at night in a very comfortable, queen-size, solid mahogany platform bed with a Tempur-pedic mattress topper. Tropical style windows let in 100% of the tropical breeze. Ceiling fans and a Dyson tower fan are available to cool the condominium. I chose not to install an air conditioner since it releases carbon which contributes to global warming. A fabricated marble shower was made by a local designer in Haiku. The entire condo has new flooring. Is it wood or is it tile? There are always changes being made to the condo to improve the decor. This is a must see condo.

About Kathy Russell
I purchased my condo in Maui several years ago because of my love of the ocean. The beach across the street is convenient and has some of the best snorkeling. I have been snorkeling in several exotic places, but Hawaii is my favorite. My hobby is photography and I took all the photos of the various Hawaiian islands that displayed throughout the condo. A visit to Maui is refreshing any time of the year, but I really enjoy escaping our winter and spring blizzards in Denver, Colorado.
Kathy Russell purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Kathy Russell chose Kihei
I chose to buy at Kihei Akahi because it was recommended to me as a great resort. I enjoy the variety of people who reside at and visit Kihei Akahi. It is conveniently located across the street from the beach. My unit is located away from the noise of Kihei Road. I love the southern part of Maui because the people are friendly and it is close to shopping, Wailea and Makena beaches.
What makes this Condo unique
My most memorable time at my condo is eating breakfast out on the lanai and watching the turtle doves. I love my kitchen with it's many small appliances. I have enjoyed furnishing my condo with items I have collected from Denver and hand carried in my luggage. Decorating my condo and designing the kitchen have been challenging and fun for me. Solid wood furniture made from bamboo and mahogany create a tropical atmosphere. I am constantly thinking of more decorating ideas and will be adding more to the unit. My daughter is an interior designer and has given me lots of ideas. I have struggled with the idea of installing air conditioning and have decided not to. I am trying to be environmentally friendly. Fans and open windows keep it cool.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Well maintained and all needs for our comfort and enjoyment were supplied.
We enjoyed our stay. The only difficulty was that the parking alloted was on the other side of the building. By driving around the building for loading my handicapped wife was able to access the facility. The condo was clean. The room were attractively decorated. The cooking utensils were good quality. The bed was high, with the stepladder my wife was able to get into bed. We would stay again if we should return to Maui. We would recommend the place to others.
Great Location. Nice complex.
Nice comfortable unit with all the necessities. Unfortunately personally we could have used air conditioners. The ceiling fan in the bedroom was good, but the one in the living area didn’t do much and moving the portable fans around was a bit cumbersome and still not as comfortable as air conditioning. Leaving the windows open all night helped cool off the condo until about 10:00am then it was very warm again. All in all we had a great stay but we would choose a unit with A/C next time.
It was clean and roomy and the location was perfect.
My Neice and I stayed for 4 nights and found the location a comfortable base for exploring Maui. It was clean and had everything we needed to cook meals for ourselves and head to the beach, which was a 2 minute walk away.
Great location, but not stocked well
The location was awesome! And the layout was great. Only complaint was that the condo had minimal daily essentials for Hawaii. There was no cooler, honestly we come to Hawaii 2x a year and have never stayed in a unit with no cooler. No can opener or other basis kitchen item. Plates weren’t not microwave friendly which is a big inconvenience when traveling.
The condo was clean except one cockroach we killed our first night there (which is to be expected in Hawaii).
If having a separate tv in the bedroom is important to you there isn’t one. There is also no AC which on the days the trade winds were blowing it wasn’t a problem but the couple of days with no wind it was uncomfortable.
There are only 4 bath towels and beach towels so we were constantly washing towels. If you have kids there are no beach toys.
If you don’t mind a minimally stock condo it is a great condo at fair price. But if these things are important to you, you might want to stay somewhere else.
Cozy and clean
The unit was a perfect home base for our Maui stay!
The location is very good! Walking to beach, we liked the condo (kitchen, washer/dryer, shower...)
Kathy was very responsive and listened to what we had to say. If I could say one opportunity, that would be: make sure the towels/wash cloth bleached every time. Maybe we were just unlucky this time, they were yellowish, fortunately we usually bring our own towels for travel.
