About the property

ASIAN/OCEANIC Decorated 1br Dlx Cndo, Kihei Akahi Resrt

Aloha!

Come CELEBRATE...I love to making your HONEYMOON, ANNIVERSARY, Birthday or celebration of coming to MAUI super special. You will be welcomed with surprises not found at other condo's. You will be welcome at my upgraded and beautifully decorated deluxe 1 br condo located at Kihei’s highly popular, Kihei Akahi resort. I am a local owner that lives minutes away from the condo, so I can make sure that it is well maintained, CLEAN and fresh for each guest.

When staying at Kihei Akahi DG11 you dont have to wonder how many sweaty sandy people have sat on the same couch or chairs, or walked over the same carpet? Most managed condo's only have a 2-3 hour cleanings between guest. Can you imagine how clean it really is. With the help of a partner, the unit is cleaned from top to bottom after each guest. The couch, chairs and carpet are shampooed on a regular basis with environmentally safe germ killing solution to make sure that my guest have the best possible experience. No worries about beg bugs either. You and your family will have a safe, clean environment in which to vacation. The location of this unit is perfect…directly across the street from the pristine sandy beach at Kamaole beach I & II and park. Kamaole Shopping Center is within walking distance offering several shops and highly acclaimed restaurants. You can golf, dine, and shop at neighboring Wailea. Whether it be nightlife, restaurants, world class beaches, or window shopping you will find that everything you need is just minutes away.

This spacious garden view, ground floor unit makes an excellent choice for your Maui getaway. Walk out the back door and you are steps away from the pool and BBQ area.

The interior color scheme was intentional chosen to be warm and inviting. The entire condo has been thoughtfully adorned with modern Asian Hawaiian furnishings, and beautiful Oceanic pictures that will get u lost in the ocean.

Your comfort and convenience is 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 a 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 dressing area, and several fans to help keep you cool & comfortable.

If you need to take care of business while on vacation, For your added convenience the condo is equipped with all-in-one printer, scanner, copier, to utilize with free high speed internet access.

Keep in touch with your family and friends not only through complimentary WI-FI for your internet needs,

but free phone service to Canada, Alaska, Mainland and Inter-Island is provided with 2 phones just in case two want to chat and share your vacation at the same time.

After a busy day exploring the Island or at the beaches, relax with video center including flat screen T.V., Blue Ray/DVD player and complete movie library with close to 100 titles to chose from. For your music needs, a high quality boom box comes complete with Bluetooth compatibility, AM/FM RADIO & CD player. There are also various 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 fully remodeled kitchen shows off top of the line appliances, spacious counter tops, and is equipped with everything you need to prepare all types of meals. Just added crockpot so my guest can spend less $ on eating out and more on fun excursions if desire. 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, 2 sizes of coolers, and lots of beach towels.

The bedroom is a calm and comforting sleep haven. Unwind and relax on a queen bed made even more comfortable with it's new mattress and 3" sensor cooling gel topper as of 7/17, soft high thread count sheets. You will get a great nights sleep after fun or relaxing day in Maui.

Living in Kihei myself, I do my best to insure that all my guests experience a magical vacation as I have come to know the island. My condo is lovingly maintained and you can count on CLEAN. I personally go in before the arrival of each guest to prepare the condo so when you arrive you will be pleasantly surprised. The comfort of my guests is truly top priority. I enjoy preparing special touches before the arrival of each guest so when you arrive you will be pleasantly surprised. I pride myself in being a very caring condo owner and will be delighted for you to be my next guest!!

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

You will have a vacation you will remember in Paradise at a condo that is full of wonderful surprises!

About KRYSTAL SMITH

Feb 2011, I made the decision to make Kihei my new home. My daughter got married on famous Sugar Beach & in between coming for her wedding and visiting her, I knew that I wanted to stay! God worked miracles with my job that enabled me to be here & He blesses me everyday.

KRYSTAL SMITH purchased this condo in 2013

Why KRYSTAL SMITH chose South Maui

I Live in Kihei & have always loved the location of Kihei Akahi as I have driven by. My condo is in a prime location suitable for both family and romantic getaways; directly across the beach, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and fun activities. Sunny Kihei rarely sees stormy weather and is well-known for it's waves, sandy beaches, snorkeling, boating, and fishing.

What makes this condo unique

Prime location, minutes from activities and world class beaches. Fully equipped beautiful kitchen...EVERYTHING u will need!!!. Peaceful sanctuary that is tastefully decorated. Convenient IN SUITE laundry. The condo is on the bottom floor & steps away from the pool and BBQ, easiest access from parking. Perfect after a busy day of shopping and adventures. Owner managed & cleaned... I care that you have a great stay in Kihei & on the Island! All this at very reasonable rates!

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.

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.

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

Amazing Experience in Maui!!

  • 5 of 5

We had our honeymoon in Maui and stayed here. Krystal was a wonderful host and the place was absolutely great! It was VERY clean,, well kept and fairly spacious.The unit had all of the amenities we could have wanted and everything was so well organized it was easy to find. Check-in was also very easy. The beach was a short walk (about 1 block as the unit sits back a bit but the complex does sit across the street from the beach). We were able to easily walk down to the beach and enjoy the sun and waves several times. We really enjoyed the location. Krystal's unit also supplied beach towels, beach chairs, and other beach items to make the stay more fun!

We would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone. It was overall a great experience for us!
