Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This adorable spacious studio unit can be your special little quiet piece of paradise. Relax and watch the sunset from the Kamaole beach park II, a short walk across the street. Enjoy your own beautifully landscaped private ground floor lanai, and listen to the hawaiian doves in the morning. Do your own barbeque in the evening, and refresh in one of the two pools after a challenging game of tennis. Wonderful restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance.

Kihei Akahi condominium is beautifully landscaped. Our condominium will sleep two to four people. It is decorated Hawaiian style to bring the islands inside with you. Kihei has the best weather of the islands, gentle tropical breezes, an occasional spritz of rain, and the ever so sweet aroma of tropical flowers. Fantastic new kitchen.

The owner, Leilani Gray, was born in Honolulu and lives in Calistoga, California, where she owns the Trailside Inn Bed and Breakfast. She knows the special calling that the islands have, and wants to share that wonderful feeling with you.

Once you have been there you will always want to return. We hope that you will recommend our little piece of paradise to your friends and family, and that you will visit us again and again and again!

About Lani Gray-Owner

Aloha, Tom and I live in the Napa Valley, Calif. We go to our condo at least twice a year to relax and work on the fix it list. We love to wake to the tropical birds singing and feel the ocean breeze through the windows. We watch the sunset nightly from 'our' beach with a glass of wine. We watch for 'coconut dog' and his master who walk the beach nightly. RELAXING is what we do best there, and you will too-no more knots in your neck!

Lani Gray-Owner purchased this Condo in 2004

                                                                    David E.

                                                                    We wanted a little get away after Christmas but it had to be within our budget. Bingo - Lani's studio place came available and I am so glad we booked it. It is so close to everything and is stocked with everything. Lani was a pleasure doing business with and I hope we can come again. My only advice is book early because this place is always booked well in advance

                                                                    If you are rich and famous you might want to stay at the Grand Wailea down the road, but if you live in the real world like me and need a budget friendly place that will work for you as a crashpad in Paradise -- call Lani. In my opinion she is offering the best bang for your buck

                                                                    Magnificent Memories Made in Maui

                                                                    Thank you so much for the great review. We call it Paradise on a shoestring because that is how we bought it. We want middle class folks like us to be able to enjoy Hawaii. I was born there and this special little piece of paradise allows us a once a year trip back to my homeland.

It’s close to the beach and a lot of spots. It has a parking space. It’s an easy drive to almost everything else on the island. I highly recommend staying here!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We had a wonderful few days checking out the island. This unit is super close to the beach as well as restaurants and shops. It was clean and well maintained. The owners have great beach items to use, such as beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and coolers. We loved having a place to cook, with a bbq nearby. The price was great and we will most certainly recommend this place to friends and family. Thanks for sharing your home with us, we loved the island and hope to be back before too long!
