About Daniel

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 South Maui

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thanks for your prompt responses! I submitted inquiries to a few condos, but as your condo was the one we were most excited about and you responded first - it was a very easy decision. Your attention to detail and complete disclosure of information has given us a lot of peace of mind leading up to our vacation."

"Thank you for a wonderful first impression".

Cute Condo with Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the condo. We had everything we needed and it was within a very short walking distance of many awesome restaurants and beautiful beaches. Daniel provided an abundance of information regarding the area and went out of his way to provide recommendations for activities of interest. The condo provided everything as promised, even a supply of coffee so we could enjoy it while watching the sunrise from the lanai. The second half of our trip we stayed in Lahaina for business which consisted of a lot of resorts and seemed touristy in comparison to Kihei. Hands down this condo/location provided so much more in comparison and we would definitely stay here again if we ever have the opportunity to visit Maui again. Great experience, Thanks Daniel!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Juli, Thanks for the wonderful review. So pleased that you found the value to be high. I feel the same about some of the other areas on the island. Why pay two or three times as much for virtually the same thing. Guests find that Kihei is a centrally located spot to branch out and see the rest of the island, yet if you want to stay local, there are more than enough things to do and see. The restaurants and watering holes are top-notch too and within walking distance, as is the beach. Good point about not having to load up the car and go FIND a beach. Thanks for the time you spent writing this, and do come back again in the future. Mahalo . . . Daniel

Has everything a couple might need

  • 4 of 5

An excellent use of space for a studio apartment. Really well stocked with condiments and beach needs. Very short distance from good beach and eateries.

We were there for 2 hot days and the breezes didn't make it into the condo but the air conditioner kept it comfortable.

Very rapid response from owner, Daniel, when I had a problem and quickly resolved.

Didn't see a single bug!

Would definitely stay again.

I appreciate the time it took for the review, and happy to hear you'd return again. Mahalo for all . . . . Daniel

Well-Appointed Kihei Studio

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Daniel's studio condo for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The condo is exactly as it looks in photographs. It is well stocked, quiet and clean. When the fog lifts, you have a great view of Mt. Haleakala from the balcony. Daniel was responsive and accommodating. He provides great recommendations for activities and restaurants.

The bed was firm, but comfortable enough. If you are a wimp about heat and like to keep your house freezing cold (like my husband), you might be a little hot. The condo has a window unit and ceiling fan, but neither were doing a great job of cooling us off while in bed. Luckily, Daniel provides a few extra fans that help to circulate the air, so we slept fine.

The Kihei Akahi complex, in which the condo is located, is very well kept. The landscaping is beautiful! We made sure to take a dip in one of the two great pools every afternoon after returning from the beach. The pools and the beach never felt crowded. It was easy to take the beach equipment that Daniel provided (beach chairs, umbrella, small cooler and towels) down to Kamaole II Beach, which was approx. 350-400 steps through the condo complex and across the street. The beach is gorgeous, but windy, so go in the morning before the trade winds make umbrella use impossible! The condo is within walking distance of some great restaurants and happy hours. Everything else in Kihei and Wailea is a short drive or cheap Uber ride away.

I would definitely stay in this condo again and strongly recommend it! Thank you for helping make our vacation memorable, Daniel!

Thanks for recommending to friends and we do hope to see you again. Mahalo, Daniel

Great Location & Value in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

I look my fist trip to Maui with my partner (who has stayed in Kihei before), and we both loved this place. The condo is in a convenient location, perfect for a traveling couple, and had every amenity we could ever need (in-unit washer/dryer, A/C, kitchen, parking spot). The condo is only a few minutes walk from local restaurants and beautiful beaches while still being a very quiet property. Daniel's condo is an excellent value if you are looking for a little bit of everything (beaches, activities, restaurants, and shopping) at a great price. Highly recommend this great spot in Kihei!

Amazing Experiences with a Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This Kihei Maui Studio Condo was spectacular. It is conveniently near many activities that you can experience such as a nice relaxing day at the beach, snorkeling with Redline Rafting at Molokini Crater, viewing an astonishing sunrise at Haleakalā National Park, and so much more! The condo has a beautiful layout, very clean, and also has a washer and dryer! Fully loaded kitchen, nice view from the patio with exotic birds singing. Daniel made sure the condo was fully equipped with any necessity you may need! This sums it up that the experience we had was overall great!

Cute condo so close to the beaches!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at the condo! It was expertly decorated and stocked with all the supplies we needed to make our stay great. We loved making breakfast in the morning and eating on the lanai (overlooking Haleakala) before heading off to the nearby beaches. The beach gear (towels, umbrella, mats) were a great help when we went snorkeling, catching sight of numerous turtles and fish. This is definitely a prime spot to stay to visit all the great south shore beaches and anywhere else in Maui.

Car: recommended

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.
