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 during the summer, 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 cooler with wheels. 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, perfect ocean water and never tire of the beautiful sunsets and rainbows.

Becky Thorman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Becky Thorman chose Kihei

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!

This was our first time staying in Kihei, and it could not have been better. Our condo Kihei Akhai D.301 was the best, Our hosts provided everything and I mean everything!!!!

Full kitchen with full size oven and a toaster oven not forgetting the Microwave, and the dishwasher the only one in the building. The Tommy Bahamas Chairs & Umbrella, the Coolers everything you need and more We loved sitting out on Lanai the view is spectacular, the birds chirping fantastic!!. If you are planning a trip to Kihei D301 is the the best place to stay and I forgot to mention the fabulous pools. The Absoulute Best

No finer vacation property at Kihei Akahi

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over 4 yrs ago....just after Rebecca purchased it and put her refined aesthetic on this perfectly located ocean and Haleakala view studio. Every year there after I tried to rent it but it’s incredible popularity kept it tied up by the time my work bosses approved my leave. I retired i this past July and could lock this pearl of a place up for me. It has faired well these past 4 years in Rebecca’s capable hands. The owners are everything that us vacationers hope for: courteous, kind, professional and superb in their communication! I MUCH prefer the Studios at the Kihei Akahi because they are on the corners, their bedroom does not back onto the noisy public corridor, the air conditioning cools the entire place. But, here’s what makes this particular condo STELLAR: it has double pane windows and slider, it is the ONLY studio with a dishwasher, it has ceramic tile floors (no icky wall to wall carpet), it has comfy furniture, the ceiling fan is whisper quiet, and the shower is nicely sized with no hard to clilmb over tub.

Please eat at 808 Bistro..don’t waste your money at Fred’s or Moose McGuiluckuty’s (loud, poor service, mediocre drinks, poor food. 808 Bistro is in same building but all the way in back. Great sunset menu, view, superb bar and the service that sets it apart...try their pork tenderloin, any of their fish (so fresh). Please use Pacific Whale Foindation for ALL your ocean excursions!

I miss Mark and Rebecca’s condo nest. Hopefully I will be back very soon🤙?🏻?

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and your kind words. We are so glad you liked your second stay in our “Pearl“. We agree that the dishwasher is a definite plus – who wants to do dishes when on vacation? Besides having a view of Haleakala from the additional side window, there is great air flow and the extra window provides additional light. We appreciate your tips for eating at 808 Bistro and using Pacific Whale Foundation for ocean excursions. We hope you will come back to Maui and we look forward to your staying in our condo again. With Aloha, Becky and Mark

Five Star Comfort in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo could be the most thoughtfully appointed unit I have ever rented from any property on VRBO in the USA, Mexico and Europe. The owners clearly took great care to consider whatever a visitor may need and even left a treat and welcome card personally written to me. From the expected things, like good towels, comfortable bedding, appointed kitchen they also included the extended basics for an oceanside condo: great beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, and even extras like lotions and miscellaneous bath needs. The kitchen is small but you could cook a Thanksgiving dinner in it considering all the pots, pans, cooking tools you could possibly need. The unit is on a corner giving windows on two sides and overlooks a greenbelt that may fill up with birds in the late afternoon. But as soon as the sun sets so does their bird-conversation. It’s in a fabulous location with two pools, tennis court, grilling facilities, walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. All of the pictures are exactly what the unit offers and the lovely grounds.

The check in process was seamless. I received a text message confirming the details and I was even able to get in earlier than the stated check-in time because the unit was ready. Upon check in I was given a starter bag of clothes detergent – thank you! The key code entry process saves any stress over loosing your key! The owners were extremely attentive with the questions that came up during my stay and were very accommodating to my requests. They are a real delight to know. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer. Thank you for making the last few days of my Maui adventure so sweet and memorable.

Owner's Response: WOW! Thank you for such a glowing review and your kind words. We really did put a lot of thought into designing our small space and we love hearing that we succeeded. We’re glad that you found everything you needed to have a great vacation on Maui, including the beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach towels. Being an end unit, the side window not only provides additional air flow but you get to enjoy the lovely view of Haleakala! If you come back to Maui we hope you will stay in our condo again. With Aloha, Becky and Mark
