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!

I loved my stay here. Condo was clean and well stocked. Views from Kano were beautiful. Close to beach and shopping!
Look no further...this condo is perfect.
Mahalo for a wonderfully furnished condo. Quality linens, cutlery, everything.
We spent two wonderful weeks here. Great location for getting around Mau’i.
The weather was unusually hot, so we were grateful for the A/C unit !
No doubt we will choose this condo in the future.
Mahalo nui again !

They thought of everything
My sister and I were in Hawaii for a wedding. We enjoyed the location for the property across from the beach. Everything needed for the beach was there. I like that there was a step stool available for short people like me. I liked that the bathroom cabinet was higher than normal I have back issues and it was very comfortable to wash face and hands with out leaning to far over.Making meals together in the kitchen and siting on the patio enjoying the breeze was one of our favorite things to do. The bus stops nearby and I recommend eating at Coconuts. When we come back to Maui again we hope to stay here once more.
Thank you for your review. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. We also like Coconuts and it is nice that it is within walking distance from the condo. It is nice to hear that you appreciated the step stool and height of the bathroom vanity, as I too am vertically challenged. When you come back to Maui we hope you will stay in our condo again. Here’s to your next trip to Maui …

Honeymoon in Maui
Becky and Mark’s studio was the perfect place for the start of our honeymoon in hawaii. They left us lovely flowers and chocolates to welcome us. The property had amazing views from the lanai - feels like you are in the tree tops. The air conditioning worked perfectly but honestly we were fine with the fan and screen door open. The bed was comfortable and the living space is plenty for two people :). The studio was immaculately cleaned and it had amazing amenities. There was beach gear (no snorkeling though) and coolers. The kitchen had EVERYTHING you need including spices!
The condo complex had two pools, good parking, and very pretty gardens. Location was close to everything in Kihei and a great base for exploring Maui. Overall, we fell in love with his little studio and call ourselves lucky to have stayed in it! Mahalo to Becky and Mark, you guys have been great at communicating and giving us a warm welcome.
Thank you for your review and kind words. What a wonderful place to honeymoon. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and you appreciated all it has to offer. Although we do have beach chairs, a beach umbrella, boogie boards and noodles we decided to leave the snorkel equipment to the many local snorkel shops nearby where they can fit you with properly maintained masks, fins and snorkels. Our favorite place to rent equipment is from Auntie Snorkel which is within walking distance from the condo. After spending the day exploring Maui, it doesn’t get better than coming back to the condo and sitting on the lanai enjoying the ocean view and the view of the mountains. Here’s to next time …

Everything you need it to be
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights before going go Lahaina. The Pearl was conveniently located in Kihei - REALLY close to the beaches, and also a lot of food options. While it is still very touristy, Kihei was definitely more "homey", and Lahaina is even more touristy. Thus, The Pearl gave us our privacy and comfortable relaxation with beautiful views. It was very clean, and all the amenities are thought out and very useful. One of the easiest check-in encounters I have ever had. I love that this unit is in the corner - we basically only had one neighbor and I never heard them. Becky and Mark were wonderful hosts and very receptive. The upstairs neighbors had a leak, which Becky and Mark quickly came to help resolve the issue and make sure it did not disturb our vacation. (Well worth appreciating as well: all kitchen things provided, beautiful lanai views and place to enjoy breakfast, w/d, comfortable bed, AC w/ drip pan that empties itself, pool, fans, amenities galore... the list goes on). The only "bad" thing I have to say is that the place is a tad bit small (not sure what other places would be this great though)- BUT perfect for vacation. My boyfriend and I loved it here and agreed that if (correction, WHEN) we do come back to Maui, we definitely want to stay here. Becky and Mark are wonderful hosts, and this is an amazing location, especially if you're interested in doing the Road to Hana or go to the Haleakala Summit. Mahalo <3
Thank you so much for the lovely review and kind words. We are glad that you enjoyed Maui and your stay in our condo. We have to agree with you that the condo is in a perfect location in Kihei and a perfect, private location in the complex. To have a view of the ocean and mountains is a definite bonus. We’re glad you found everything you needed to have a great stay. When you come back to Maui we hope you will stay in “The Pearl” again. Here’s to next time …

An amazing stay!
Becky and Mark were wonderful hosts! We had everything we needed and MORE for a comfortable stay! We were able to check in early and greatly enjoyed the location of the condo (just a minute walk from the beach)! Mahalo for such a wonderful stay! They went above and beyond for us!
Thank you for your lovely review and kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and that you found everything you needed for a great stay. It is not always possible for an early check-in, so I'm glad it worked out for you. If you come to Maui again we hope you will want to stay at The Pearl. Here's to next time...
