About the Property
Modernized 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom walkout. Sleeps 2
Building D, or, the 'Haleakala' building, is set back on the far east end of the Kihei Akahi property. This makes it the quietest of the 4 buildings, and the orientation of it allows the fragrant afternoon trade winds to cool the unit without ever having to turn on the air conditioning.
Inside we have a bathroom that has been made slightly larger by unifying the original 2-room design.
It has been completely redone with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, 16 inch travertine, and accessorized in nickel finishes by Kohler and American Standard.
The kitchen footprint was widened and then visually opened up to the living room, granting us the unique ability to install a Blanco double basin granite sink. We are one of just a small handful of units at the Akahi to offer this--a small luxury one realizes only in its absence.
The spacious kitchen offers all the comforts and luxuries of home: high quality cabinetry, under cabinet and pendant lighting, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, garbeurator, coffee maker, grinder, blender, and every necessity one might need to piece together an exotic island meal.
Other amenities include a brand new washer and dryer, 2 ceiling fans, hair dryer, alarm clock, and a concrete-wall mounted personal safe.
But since no one comes to Maui to be inside, you are one sliding door from the springy grass, palm trees, plumerias, hibiscus and other exotic scents of the property gardens. Our lanai is wide open to all that Maui and the Kihei Akahi has to offer....just one sliding door from a relaxing tropical paradise.
We really fell in love with this unit because of the oversized feel of the lanai. Because you aren't contained by a railing, you enjoy a free, open, and truly one-with-the-island feel--which is what we really believe being on Maui is all about.
So, whether it's heading back and forth to the pool or BBQ, stretching out your legs during an outdoor meal, or, my personal favorite, simply walking barefoot in the lush grass beyond it, this lanai, and all that lies beyond it, is a big reason why we find such inner calm and peace being here. A few strides to Kamaole II and every sunset can be enjoyed with the sounds of the waves lapping on shore, and the soft sand underfoot.
So, beyond the sliding door, and just a brief walk through the lush Akahi garden, lies the soft sand and warm water of Kamaole II beach. For your outdoor use and enjoyment, we have provided colored beach towels, snorkel sets, boogie boards, Maui guide books, driving maps, hiking guides, beach chairs, coolers, reusable shopping bags, and ice packs.
Be it hiking, biking, snorkeling, shopping, golfing, playing tennis, swimming, sunbathing, or sightseeing....after a day experiencing what the island has to offer, you can come back to relax under the moonlight on the lanai, swim in the pool under the stars, sit down in front of our 42 inch LCD TV, or simply retire to the queen sized Sealy Posturepedic in the bedroom.
Maui isn't a place people only visit once. Come stay in our Kihei Akahi condo and fall in love with an island and a lifestyle that will have you dreaming of your next trip before you've even left.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Chris and Kristin were both born and raised in the prairies of Western Canada. We hold professional positions in Calgary and really hope to retire to Maui someday. After 3 consecutive trips to Maui, we got married on Po'olenalena Beach in 2011, and when we returned in 2012, it marked our first stay, not only as a married couple, but also owners of a beautiful condo in paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Kihei, HI, USA:
Kristin and I have made 3 trips to Maui in the same number of years. Those trips always had us anchored in South Kihei, and we always felt at home there. South Kihei has always been consistent...lots of sun and almost no rain. The Kihei Akahi property has everything we could ever want--pools, tennis, gas BBQ's, hospitable front desk service, grassy garden area, exotic scents in the air--all a stone's throw from the soft sand and blue-green Pacific Ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have learned that the true Maui experience comes from being within in it, not sitting above it. That's why we love the walk-out so much. The floral scents are richer, the wildlife more abundant, and the unfenced lanai gives you a sense of openness and freedom. We love this south-west facing walk-out unit because there are palm trees to gaze up at, springy green grass to walk in, and you can use all the Akahi amenities without having to use the stairs or the elevator. We are still shocked that we've never had to turn on the air conditioner. Please take advantage of the security screen door at the entrance and screen at the lanai to generate an environmentally friendly cooling system. The a/c is always there, but we have been pleasantly surprised with how effective the natural breeze can be. ***In addition to the reviews submitted through this website, immediately below you will see what other guests have written in our guest book***
