Overview

About the property

1 Bathroom, Studio With Full Kitchen And Laundry

Welcome to our tastefully renovated and decorated Kihei Akahi studio D-301, that we affectionately call

“Our Pearl”.

Kihei Akahi is located directly across from three of South Maui’s most beautiful beaches, Kamaole I, II and III. All three of the Kamaole beaches have lifeguards, showers and restroom facilities and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding/body surfing, walking, playing volleyball or just hanging out and enjoying the warm sun, perfect water and watching the magnificent whales from late December to early May.

The Kihei Akahi complex has beautifully maintained grounds, two pools, bbq grills, a tennis court and is centrally located within walking distance to several fine restaurants, shopping and activity centers. Our condo is located at the back of the complex away from the road noise and has a private feeling with great views.

From our private lanai you have the benefit of 180 degree views of ocean, the island of Lanai, stunning sunsets, West Maui Mountains, sun and moon rises and the leeward slopes of the mighty Haleakala.

Being a corner unit, the additional side window provides good light, views of Haleakala and a wonderful breeze that flows through our condo.

You will have the most comfortable and relaxed stay in our condo. We have updated our unit with new decor and furnishings: a dining table that can seat 4, a Beautyrest World Class Brentford Luxury Firm Queen Size Bed, a sofa, a comfy chair, a lanai set and a beautiful custom made tv armoire that has 2 closets and drawers for your clothes as well as extra storage space for your luggage when you unpack and settle in.

For your indoor entertainment, we have a 39' hdtv and a dvd player. We also have an am/fm alarm clock that is a charging station for your i-pod or i-phone.

There is a hanging pot rack with a full set of cookware and the gas range is great to cook on with a microwave/fan/light above it. In addition to a coffee maker (we provide the filters), there is a tea pot, a blender, a toaster oven and a spice rack complete with spices. The refrigerator is full size and we are the only studio in Kihei Akahi that has a dishwasher.

When you head out to the beach there are 2 Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs for you to use, a Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, beach towels and a small playmate cooler. There are also plastic cups, plates and utensils for you to take to the beach or the pool, as well as to use in the condo.

About Becky Thorman

In 2002 we vacationed on Maui with our two sons, fell in love with Maui and moved to Kihei the following year. Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20+ years we truly appreciated the sunny days and perfect ocean water and after 10 years of living here we still love it and never tire of the beautiful sunsets and rainbows.

Becky Thorman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Becky Thorman chose South Maui

Kihei Akahi is close to everything that one needs to relax on Maui. Three of the most beautiful beaches (Kamaole I, II and III) are across the street. There are restaurants, shopping and activity centers within walking distance. The grounds of the Kihei Akahi are well maintained, are filled with lovely tropical flowers, plumeria trees, breadfruit trees, banana trees, palm and monkey pod trees. The birds that also call Kihei Akahi their home will sing to you throughout the day!

Perfect condo with all the fixings

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful condo which had everything we need!

As we like to cook, we were happy the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and even spices.

The location also can't be beat. Walking distance from a beautiful beach where you can watch the sunset every night.

We will definitely try to stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay and that you found everything you needed, including a well stocked kitchen. The location of the complex is definitely a plus - being able to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. And of course, you can't beat those Maui sunsets ... whether you go down to the beach for sunset or watch it from the lanai at the condo. Here's to next time! With Aloha, Becky and Mark

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo was perfect for us. We walked to the beach most days, using the beach chair and beach towels provided. We loved the location; walking distance to some restaurants, shops, coffee and the beach. The view from the balcony was beautiful, we made breakfast in the morning and a nice bonus, going home with clean clothes; we utilized the washer and dryer. The condo provides more than you expect. We had a prefect baby moon, thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your time in our condo and on Maui and that you had a “perfect baby moon”!!! Being able to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops is definitely a plus. I agree with you - the view from the lanai is beautiful … the ocean, the West Maui Mountains, Haleakala and of course our Maui sunsets. With Aloha, Becky and Mark
