About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

We've taken great care to ensure you'll find Kihei Akahi C412 to be one of the most beautifully renovated condo experiences in Maui! Your perfectly appointed unit is situated away from the road sounds, where you'll instead enjoy the sounds of island birds softly singing and palm trees swaying in the breeze. We provide an amazing, newly updated kitchen fully stocked with absolutely everything you'll need and more. Additional amenities include a stackable washer/dryer, wired and wireless high-speed internet, cooler, beach chairs with built-in coolers, a beach umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels, and additional miscellaneous beach gear for your added convenience. We also have a portable, solid-wood laptop desk in the closet that easily rolls and unfolds, perfect for setting up in the living room right off the Lanai, and you'll have a nice little mini office in Maui with a gorgeous view and cool island breezes.

The complex also offers beautifully scenic landscaping, 2 pools, 2 new elevators, nice clean propane grills and a tennis court. There are lots of restaurants and great shopping within easy walking distance, and 2 of the best beaches in Maui are just steps away! We take tremendous pride of ownership in our lovely island condo, so we certainly hope you will enjoy every detail - especially the comfort and cleanliness! We would love to have you as our guests.

About Mike Guida

We're Mike and Roxy, proud island owners of Kihei Akahi C412. We have a home on the mainland in Austin, Texas, but spend several months each year on island. Like many couples, we honeymooned in Maui and just fell in love with the island.

After many years of hard work in our jobs, then building our own business while raising our son, we were finally able to come back to Maui. After just a few more visits, we knew we'd eventually like to retire on island. Well, we're not quite ready yet, but through condo ownership, we've discovered a great way to visit Maui more often, while also sharing island paradise with our valued guests. We hope you enjoy our condo at Kihei Akahi C412 as much as we do, and will visit again on your next visit to Maui.

Mike Guida purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mike Guida chose Kihei

We looked at many condos all over Wailea and Kihei, and put a lot of thought into our decision to purchase our condo at Kihei Akahi C412.

First of all, we chose Kihei for the diversity of island activities without being overly touristy like the Ka'anapali area. Kihei has amazing beaches and parks, fantastic restaurants, stores and shops, long stretches of beautiful sandy shores for walking and relaxing, and anything and everything a Maui visitor could desire. Kihei is situated just a few minutes to Wailea, 20 minutes to Lahaina, 20 minutes to the airport and shopping in the busy town of Kahului, and a quick drive to many other fantastic Maui areas like Big Beach in Makena, the quaint little town of Paia, the Road to Hana, the drive to Heleakala, and much more scenic island beauty to experience.

We chose Kihei Akahi for the lush, perfectly maintained island landscape, steps-away proximity to our favorite 2 Maui beaches and the ability to walk a short distance to many of our favorite restaurants, stores and shops.

What makes this condo unique

We chose Kihei Akahi C412 because of its perfect location on the property just steps away from the main pool and amazing mountain and ocean views from the lanai. Step out on the lanai in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee while enjoying swaying palm trees, the songs of island birds, and the fragrant scents of plumeria and other island flowers on the lush grounds below.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and 2 of our best friends want to thank you for providing such a fantastic condo for our vacation. Your condo is absolutely beautiful and every amenity we could think of was provided for us, at a very reasonable price too. Maui Condo and Car checked in on us twice during our stay, and gave us some great pointers on nearby restaurants and activities. That was quite impressive and very much appreciated. We plan to come to Maui every year and will definitely try to book this condo again. Thank you!

Excellent fully renovated unit in a great location with great access to beaches, restaurants, etc

  • 4 of 5

Mike has a great, fully renovated comfortable unit with access to beaches and the life of Kihei.

The development is well-maintained, safe, and secure. The tennis court is amazing, and the 2 pool area, although not large, are nice. Gas grills are very clean.

Quality beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, are all included in unit. The kitchen is stocked with items that alow a full range of cooking. The Lanai provided nice outdoor space, and screen doors front and back keep the place cool. We never used the air conditioner which was about the only thing not updated.

Mike was always reachable and was very attentive in resolving a concern that arose upon arrival.

We very much look forward to returning.

Beautiful Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfectly located in Kihei. Is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops and right across the street from the beach. Is off the street so no traffic noise only birds singing. You really only need to bring personal belongings and everything else is there waiting for you to enjoy beach days, cook meals or just relax. Target, Walmart and Costco are close to the airport for supplies and a very nice Safeway is not far from the condo. The condo is beautiful and very comfortable. We were sad to leave and would highly recommend this condo as we loved everything about it.

Great spot in a wonderful central spot

  • 5 of 5

We feel fortunate to have connected with this owner via VRBO. This place is very comfortable and is stocked with everything you need. I think my favorite part about this property are the owner's and guests. Great conversation and pupus at the Aloha Friday mixer at the pool/BBQ area. You are directly across the street from beautiful Kamaole 2 park and it's wonderful beach. Easy walking distance to good quick eats. We look forward to staying again. Aloha!

Owner's Response: Aloha Jennifer, Roxy & I absolutely agree with you! In fact, the lush, beautiful grounds at Kihei Akahi was a big part of our decision to become owners years back, compared to a few other condos and properties we toured. I trust you had an amazing on-island experience and we can't wait to serve you again next year! Mahalo! Mike & Roxy

Great Place to Stay in Kiehi!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent and stocked with everything you can need for a stay in Maui. The unit is in excellent condition and very quiet. We made great use of the kitchen for meals and enjoyed coffee and wine on the deck during pleasant evenings. The bedroom closet has beach chairs, boogie boards, grass mats, and towels ready to go for trips to the beach. The beach itself is a quick, less than five minutes, walk to the front of the property and across the street. Many choices for restaurants are also a short walk away, with even more options a 5 minute drive. Moose McGillycuddy's nearby has bingo and trivia on various nights and is a fun place to have a nightcap. Mike was a great host with clear instructions and regular check ins to ensure that our stay was going well. We didn't use the complex pool as the beach was so close, but you have two options for pools. Only negative is that the maintenance staff at the complex must really hate their jobs as they are quite grouchy. Overall an excellent stay and we would definitely stay at this unit again in the future!

Owner's Response: Aloha Jeff! Wow, thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review! All the elements you mentioned about your time on island are really wonderful. Of course we love hearing all about our guests' experiences, but your detailed review also allows future guests a unique window into your Aloha experience, which we truly appreciate. Roxy and I will do everything we can during our stay on Maui every year to make sure the condo is ship-shape, refreshed, restocked and renewed so that we always deserve all the wonderful accolades. I'll certainly check into your comments about the maintenance staff. I know the complex has had several new hires. Perhaps the Aloha Spirit just needs to sink in a bit more with some people. HA! Mahalo Jeff & family. Come back and stay with us again any time your future travel brings you back to Paradise! Mike & Roxy
