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.

Well furnished and very well maintained.
We were there for couple of days. The place was very clean. Small items of daily use were available which made it convenient.
Comfortable with all amenities anyone would need for a long term stay.
Well-equipped and nicely decorated
Nicely furnished and very clean. The mountain view in the morning was serene.
Daniel is a great, thoughtful host--excellent communication and very helpful. Comfy bed. Good beach equipment.
Thanks so much for the kind words. Very pleased you were comfortable there and enjoyed the ambience from the inside too.
I appreciate you for keeping my place clean and for passing on some good vibes to others reading this.
Mahalo for your time, and thanks for being great guests. Hope we can do it again sometime . . .
Studio exactly as described...Daniel a great host
This suite was perfect for a 4 week stay in Kihei for 2 of us over the Christmas period. Akahi Kihei is in a great location for the best beaches, shops and casual dining. The suite is in the block farthest from the beach but still only a few minutes walk to the water, sand, reefs and turtles...
The suite is very tastefully updated and well equipped for dining in, lounging on the lanai or poolside, of which there are 2, and like the rest of the common areas of the complex, are kept very clean. The suite also has everything you need for the beach including chairs, umbrellas, boogey boards and snorkels.
Daniel is a great host, lives in Kula and is around the complex almost every day, making sure you have all you need and everything is functioning well.
All in all we had a great visit and definitely felt the suite was value for money.....thanks Daniel, we hope to be back....Mahalo

Aloha David & Susan,
Thanks for an amazing review! You two were awesome guests. Such a pleasure to have you for a month. I think you left the place as clean as we did, so many Mahalos for that, and for taking the time to post this, a month and a half after your stay.
I do hope you can come back again next year, when Mother Maui calls . . .
Gratefully . . .. . .
Everything you need for a relaxing stay
This was our second time staying at Daniel’s condo. There are several reasons we choose to stay here again including the ease of working with Daniel! His place has literally everything you need for the beach: chairs, umbrella, towels, cooler, boogie boards!! We love that his place is located right across from Kam II beach which has beautiful sand and is family friendly. His place is quiet with beautiful views of Haleakala! The bed is comfy and the bathroom is roomy! I would suggest this place to anybody wanting a comfortable stay that is within walking distance to literally everything you need!! Thanks Daniel for another great stay!
Wow, thanks for a great review. You were a wonderful guest both times you stayed. I hope we can make a habit out of this!
I appreciate those who take time to write a review. I know most of us are busy, so I really appreciate it, and believe that it saves fellow travelers a lot of time too. There are SO many condos out there, so taking the guess work out of things helps.
Have a great Winter, and do come and see us again!
Great place to stay in Maui
This is an excellent, very well maintained studio condo. It is a perfect setup for 2 people. The description is exactly what you get and the entire complex is excellent. It even has beach chairs, snorkel equipment, cooler, and toys for the pool and beach. My husband and I spend 6 wonderful nights here. We used the pool, and even the BBQ. The location is perfect with lots in walking distance like the beach, shopping and restaurants. We highly recommend this unit and will stay here again when we return to Maui.
Aloha Bruce and Family,
Wow, that's a great review! It's exactly how I want guests to feel when they stay. I think it's important to get precisely what you are expecting from the advertisements, so glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves and plan a return visit. Yes, do pass your experiences around to friends and family, and do come and see us again next year.
Mahalo for all . . .
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.
