I've always been a sun worshiper by nature, so it's not a huge leap to have made it to Maui. Oddly enough, I have spent a lot of years in Alaska, and now seem to have the perfect combination of places I love. Maui will always be my favorite though, and sharing it with others is just a lot of fun. It's great to hear the great reviews and to have people echo my sentiments, almost to the tee; about all the great things Maui has to offer and the accommodations I try to provide while they are here.
Daniel purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Daniel chose Kihei
After vacationing on Maui several years ago, I knew right then that I had to buy a slice of this island for myself. Some way, some how. Through a series of incredible circumstances that fell into place, almost miraculously. . . . . THAT led to turning my first condo into a vacation rental. This brought me great joy and afforded a sweet place to stay when I vacationed here again. Then a 2nd studio, led to a third studio, and the rest is fate.
What makes this Condo unique
I think I love the awesome view of Mt Haleakala the best. Going to the top is the pinnacle, but it's a stunning view from the lanai, any time of day. If you get too much sun, this studio is the ultimate in luxury and extravagance. From the Granite and Cherry Wood Cabinets, to the full array of new appliances in the Kitchen, this place invites you to stay in and entertain. Of course the pools are a few steps away, and the ocean about a minutes walk, just across the street, but chilling indoors, has never been more pleasant. Being a corner unit, it also affords less adjacent neighbors and twice the sunlight and windows. A great breeze always blows thru, if you want Mother Nature's own cooling system. If not, there's a new AC unit too.

This is a great studio. It's updated and well taken care of. Unit is clean and has everything you need. It's right across the street from an amazing beach. I would highly recommend this place and would stay here again.
Everything is was good
Cool place, we loved it and liked it
Cute place, with parking, and close to the beach. Great for 2
I was hesitant at first cause of the red walls but we only needed a place to stay while we are mostly out during the day. After getting there the place is very cute, clean and it has everything you need more so than a hotel. Daniel is great and very prompt on responses. There's instructions everywhere so as long as you read through everything you'll be fine. Location is great b/c you're walking distance from the street malls with great food and stores for souvenirs. It's a very cozy place for a couple. If I come back to Maui I will definitely come back to this condo unit. Thanks Daniel!
Thanks for the nice review. You're the first person that didn't love the custom paint, but sounds like you warmed up to it. I just try to give people something more special than plain white walls. You can find that in practically any other condo.
Sounds like everything else was perfect. Thanks for sharing with potential guests, as I know it can be a daunting task to pick a condo from the dozens you may have looked at.
Mahalo for all, and yes, DO come back again. Happy Holidays!
Super holiday spot
Terrific location and superb condition of the grounds and facilities.
Many thanks for the review. I do hope you can return again in the near future. You were great guests!
Loved the decor! First place I’ve stayed in Hawaii without white walls!
We love the Kihei Akahi condos and have stayed there many times. This was our first studio and it was super. I so enjoyed the beautiful decor. Lots of seats for a small place , great kitchen, great beach amenities, really everything we needed. Really good internet. Great owner interaction. Aloha and mahalo😎
Ok, not sure who this was actually, as I have 3 vacation rentals, and you left no name.
Very glad you enjoyed yourselves and especially the decor and amenities. I pride myself in being a couple notches above the typical white walled condos with Walmart plastic lanai furniture and cheesy wicker stuff inside.
Again though I am confused. I have received several reviews that rave such as this, yet only leave 4 out of 5 stars, without mention of something I could have done better. Come on people . . . . my livelihood depends on these reviews, which I didn't even request.
That being said. . . . still happy you loved it, and do hope you come back again.
fully equipped studio
including everything we need.
This is just an amazing location. It is centrally located to everything you need. You really wouldn't NEED a car, but I recommend getting out and seeing the island. There are so many great things to see on Maui. You could spend a year, and not see everything, but do check out the top of Haleakala (over 10,000 ft) and the Road to Hana, are a must do.
