About the property

Asian/Oceanic Decorated One Bedroom Condo, Kihei Akahi Resort

Aloha!

Come celebrate your Honeymoon, Anniversary, Birthday, etc in Maui! I love making your celebration in Maui very special. My spacious, garden view, ground floor unit is an excellent choice for your Maui getaway. You will have a vacation you will remember in Paradise at a condo that is full of wonderful surprises!

You will arrive to find surprises in your condo that you wouldn't find elsewhere. I want you to feel special, and I go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is wonderful!

When you arrive, you will find a tasteful and upgraded deluxe one bedroom condo with a washer and dryer. Located at Kihei's popular, Kihei Akahi resort. This Unique and beautify condo has a private garden view and is ground floor for easy access. Enjoy morning coffee on your lanai (patio) or sip an evening cocktail. Within steps there is a swimming pool and barbecue with a hot tub on & tennis courts on the property.

I clean the condo from top to bottom after each guest. You can count on clean, well maintained and fresh when you arrive. I also shampoo the carpets on a regular basis with an ECO germ-killing solution. You and your family will have a safe, clean environment in which to vacation.

The location of this unit is right across the street from the pristine beach at Kamaole I & II. Kamaole Shopping Center is within walking distance of several shops and delicious restaurants. Walking to the beach, restaurants, shopping and all that beautiful South Kihei has to offer is a treat in itself. It is just a short drive to championship golf courses in Wailea and Makena as well as the fabulous shops and restaurants, without the Wailea price tag.

Whether it's nightlife, restaurants, beaches, or shopping you will find it minutes away.

The interior color scheme was intentionally chosen to be warm and inviting. Decorated with modern Asian Hawaiian furnishings, and beautiful Oceanic pictures beautifully framed from famous artist from HI.

Your comfort and convenience are of utmost importance to me! It starts when you arrive at the door. I recently installed a key less entry system for your convenience. No worries about keys OR key cards.

To help keep you cool, there is an air conditioner in the living room. To help the circulation of the fresh ocean air, there are 3 ceiling fans. One in the dining area, one in the bedroom, and one in the dressing area. I also provide several portable fans to help keep you cool & comfortable.

If you need to take care of business while on vacation I provide an all-in-one printer, scanner, copier. I also provide free high-speed WIFI access.

Keep in touch with your family and friends with our free phone service to Canada, Alaska, and Mainland. Local calls are also free.

After a busy day exploring the Island, relax with the video center... flat screen T.V., Blue Ray/DVD player and complete movie library with close to 100 titles to chose from. Do you like music? I provide a high-quality boombox with Bluetooth compatibility, AM/FM RADIO & CD player. There are also various games, books and magazines if reading is your pleasure.

The Asian style couch is a queen size pull out bed with a high-quality new mattress.

The remodeled kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances and spacious counter tops. I have also included everything you need to prepare your meals. All cooking utensils, dishware and flatware, coffee filters, sugar, creamer as well as salt and pepper. You will also find the basics in the fridge.. Mustard, catsup, and various other basics. Enjoy dining either inside or outside on the private lanai. The choice is yours.

Feel free to make use of all the stocked beach goodies:

Large umbrella

boogie board

beach chairs

snorkel equipment

beach mattresses

kid toys

Two sizes of coolers

and lots of beach towels.

The bedroom is a calm and comforting sleep haven. Unwind on a queen bed, made even more comfortable with its new mattress. Also, there is a 3" sensor cooling gel topper and soft, high thread count sheets. You will get a great nights sleep after a fun day in Maui.

Living in Kihei myself, I do my best to ensure that all my guests experience a magical vacation. My condo is lovingly maintained and you can count on CLEAN. I go in before the arrival of each guest to prepare the condo so when you arrive you will be pleasantly surprised. Your comfort is my top priority. I pride myself on being a very caring condo owner and will love for you to be my next guest!

Limited wheelchair accessible (please discuss needs with the owner before booking). Pets are not allowed (unless service animals) and smoking is not permitted.

Everything Is Taken care of

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to Maui and by far our best. The accommodation was beyond excellent. the owner Krystal has taken everything into consideration and we knew very quickly when we had a power failure the second day in. She had the condo prepared with candles and flashlights, my aunt and uncle were in the dark in there condo. I would highly recommend this condo as a 5 star experience. Thank You for a wonderful holiday .

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review and for staying! Praise God the whole time I have lived on the Island, the time you were here was the 1st we have been without. I am so glad was prepared, and you are right, I have tried to figure out any scenario or want my guest might have and make sure it is available. We don't realize how much we rely on our electricity until we dont have. Hope to see you again!

Clean, fully stocked, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Krystal has thought of everything to enhance your stay. The property itself is in immaculate condition. It is on the ground floor and walks out to a beautiful lawn and garden area. It is very quiet. (even though you are in a large complex, it is very private.) The beds and pillows are comfortable. There is air conditioning and extra fans throughout. She provided beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, & snorkel gear. Even extras like a cooler and extension cords. Anything you could think of, Krystal has stocked in this property. More than that, Krystal is an absolute delight to work with. She is extremely hospitable and does everything she can to ensure a memorable stay. I'd give this properly (and owner) 10 stars if I could! We loved it here and will stay again when we are on Maui.

Owner's Response: Aloha Nichole, I couldnt ask for a better review. I appreciate you mentioning the air conditioning and fans throughout. Because of regulations we can only have certain size of conditioner so it is important that there are plenty of fans that are professional position for optimum air flow and comfort. Looking forward to your return!

Clean, comfortable and steps from the pool!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to Maui and we had the best time! The owner, Krystal, could not have been more wonderful. We were greeted with a basket of goodies and everything we could have possibly needed for the beach including chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, umbrellas and more. The condo is on the ground floor which is super convenient when you're lugging all the gear back and forth, and it's like 20 feet from the pool which was awesome! We loved that the door had a key code so we didn't have to keep track of a key the entire trip. The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment to make meal prep just like at home, which saved us a ton on going out to eat. Kam II beach just a little stroll away and perfect for an afternoon of boogie boarding or relaxing. We liked the quaintness of Kihei, and it's still centrally located enough to make getting around the island pretty easy. I've read a few people complaining that it was hot in the condo, so here's an honest opinion from a Seattle fam who keeps their air set to 68 degrees at all times: yes, it was warm, but not oppressively so. There are, no kidding, like 9 fans positioned strategically throughout the place to keep the airflow going. That was sufficient most of the time. But there is a window unit AC that cools the main living space off pretty quickly if you just can't handle it. It doesn't reach back to the bedroom and there was a marked difference between the two rooms, but with all the fans running and the right attitude (you're in Hawaii, people!) we had zero problem sleeping at night. Long story short, we loved every second of our stay and would return to Krystal's condo in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Amy & John I so loved having you and your sweet little man staying at my condo! Thank you for such a great review. I appreciate you mentioning the kitchen & that it has everything you need. There are so many things on the Island that cost so much $$ like salt, pepper, spices, oils...I try to have all of that on hand so my guest have more $$ to play with. I know cleaniness is super important too so instead of hiring cleaners with a 2-3 hour time limit I take care of it myself so it is as clean as clean as I would want it to be. Excited to C u back soon!

Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Krystal's condo was absolutely terrific. Highly recommend. Very clean, stocked with everything we needed (the fact it had beach chairs and beach towels was the cherry on top). Perfect for couples! Krystal is very responsive and takes good care of her guests. You won't have regrets staying here.

Owner's Response: So happy to have you and Ryanne stay at my condo during your Maui vacation. So sweet that you mentioned the smaller things like towels and chairs. Also really appreciate you mentioning how clean it is. That is super important to me. I know my guest dont want to sit on previous guest sweat an sand so regularly shampoo couch, chairs and bedroom carpet so everything is clean and fresh! My hope is that my guest need for nothing but fun in the sun when they arrive! Many Blessings! Krystal

Great condo at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! Such a clean, nicely decorated unit conveniently located on the ground floor just across the pool. We didn't get to use the pool however this location is fantastic. You are walking distance across the street to Kamaole Beach Park 2, which is in between Kamaole Beach Park 1 & 3. There are tons of shops, restaurants, and grocery stores near by. Krystal furnishes the unit and provides with everything you could need. Kitchen was fully stocked and there is a small dish washer and washer/dryer to wash your clothes. Hair dryer, ironing board/iron, towels, beach towels, beach bags, grocery bags, soft coolers, hard coolers, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, shampoo, conditioner, lotions, bug spray, sun screen, etc. she's got it all. We did see a few bugs during our stay (most of which had died already) but since we are in a tropical place, I expected that and it didn't bother us at all. When we were there, they were in the process of re-painting the building. During one of the days, they were power washing the walls and the bedroom windows were open and they sprayed water into the bedroom. Luckily my husband quickly closed them but they should've made sure windows were closed before they sprayed. She made sure that our stay was special. We can't wait to be back in Maui again. We would happily stay at this location again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Linda & Ricardo, I so appreciated hosting you during your stay in Maui. What a great review...So sweet to notice and mention so many things that I make sure my guest have so it feels like home. U even mentioned all of the toiletries that are there. Everything is so expensive here I like having those things like bug spray, sunscreen, emergency supplies etc so you have need for nothing. So happy that will be having you back on your return. Blessings to you both Krystal

It is a very nicely furnished and pleasant condo room on the ground floor.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was neat and clean. Krystal was very accommodating to our needs and had a nice welcome basket. The location is great: easy walk to Kamaole 2 which is a nice beach.

Owner's Response: Mike & Nancy, I so enjoyed hosting you for 32nd anniversary. What an accomplishment!!! I appreciate you mentioning how convenient it is that on the ground floor. If you are in upper unit to get to the pool and beach you have to walk all the way around. On the ground floor there is the convenience of walking out the slider an being withing 10 steps of the pool, BBQ, and Ocean. Who doesnt want to get there quicker and easier. If not b4 hope to see u back @ Anniversary 35! Krystal
