About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Bright, clean and comfortable, contemporary and uncluttered with a great view of the ocean and the lush tropical gardens below.

This is a very well renovated one bed/one bath unit in KA building C unit 509, nicely furnished and well outfitted. Being up higher on the fifth floor, the lanai provides both a good ocean view and a garden view, away from the noise of the pool/bbq areas and the main road. Use the lanai to enjoy a lazy morning coffee or bask in the last glow of sunset with a cocktail. Thoroughly outfitted kitchen (useful extras like a blender, crock pot, rice cooker, etc.), green granite countertops and hardwood cabinetry, updated appliances, gas cooktop, flat screen TVs in both living room and bedroom, AM/FM radio/CD player. Overhead air con unit in the living room, but the open windows and a ceiling fan on low keep it perfectly cool at night. For the daytime, our condo features a lockable steel screen front door. Day or night, the soothing Pacific breezes are comfortable and pleasant. The unit does NOT have central A/C.

The bedroom is also well appointed with a new king size bed, quality linens and a selection of pillow firmness. The linen cupboard is very well stocked with plush thirsty bath sheets and beach towels. The sofa bed in the living room has a six inch mattress to avoid that 'bar in back' feeling the next morning.

Highly desirable location in south/central Kihei, within walking distance to shopping, food stores (even an organic food store one block away!), services and restaurants, and the Maui bus stop only a few steps away. For those not wanting to rent a car, check out the ever growing network of Maui bus. Ask us about cheap car rental too. And then there's the beaches! Kam II is right across the street, but that's only one of several fantastic beaches within walking distance. Gorgeous Big Beach and intriguing Little Beach are only a 15 minute drive away. From the soft brown sands of our own Kam II beach, it’s normal to see whales playing offshore during the season, and it’s easy to go snorkeling right from the beach. Kihei Akahi also offers beautiful, clean pools and patios with BBQs, and a tennis court at no extra charge.

Especially for those interested in longer stays, there is a lot of cupboard space in the kitchen and bedroom, letting you get fully unpacked and feeling settled and sorted like you're at home.

Our Canadian visitors (as well as mainlanders from the US) will be glad to enjoy unlimited free long distance back to Canada and the rest of the US. We also have a pair of 10km walkie-talkies for your use. Great if you don't have multiple cell phones or don't want to risk roaming charges, but want to do different activities apart. We have many useful extras like binoculars, larger Tommy Bahama beach umbrellas and chairs, beach toys, a hotel-style safe in the bedroom, and more.

And finally, we are pleased that we can extend concierge services from Mike and Edy, our on-island support team. They are available to answer questions or provide suggestions (which restaurant? where can I buy? where is a doctor? what's the best tour for...? at no charge to you.

They will also provide fee based services at reasonable rates - need groceries stocked before you arrive? Need an airport pickup with child seats? Want extra maid service during your stay? Contact them before you arrive or during your stay, they're there to make your vacation as relaxing as possible.

Extra charge of $10 per person/per day for 3rd or 4th adult.

About Jim Thorne

We fell in love with Hawaii from the very first visit. The soft breezes, sun and sand seem to soothe the soul. And whale watching from the lanai is an amazing experience!

We're two working people who appreciate the variety of activities and pace that Maui offers, from the very active to the very sedate, and never a worry about snow or cold.

Jim Thorne purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jim Thorne chose South Maui

Kihei Akahi's location and its floor plans have tremendous appeal. Just across the street from a wonderful beach, and great ocean view, but enough distance from the road to keep things quiet. Walk down to the beach, which is optimally situated for classic Hawaiian sunsets, truly breathtaking.

The floor and window layout is intelligently designed, you really don't need air con because of the effectiveness of the air flows when the windows are open. The combination of light breezes and the ceiling fans keep things cool and comfortable for a sound sleep.

We also recognized the extra conveniences for longer stay guests, ie plenty of storage space in the bedroom and kitchen, free long distance phone, WIFI.

What makes this condo unique

-Condo has been thoroughly and thoughtfully remodeled - there are no remnants of old linoleum or carpet and no stained popcorn ceilings, completely new cabinetry

- Directly across the street from the beach

- Proximity to services, restaurants, shops and tours

- Offset from the road to keep it quiet and peaceful

- Cool and comfortable from the breezes

- Concierge services (free and fee based) available

Maui, my second home

  • 4 of 5

The staff were friendly and welcoming, gave me lots of information. The property was well maintained. Sitting on the lanai and enjoying the view, when I wasn't in the beach was great. I had a problem with the AC which was dealt with pretty quickly. The owners Jim and Chris were great, very responsive. Great location, just across from Kam II beach! A very relaxing and enjoyable vacation, Maholo

The condo was perfect, well kept with a great view of the ocean. The grounds were beautiful, the pool areas with the barbecues were great for night dinning. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops. Loved .

Felt like home but you're on vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about our stay! The condo was so well-maintained with a lot of thought going into what you might need. The view was beautiful and you were back far enough from the main street to enjoy the quiet and RELAX. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us - can't wait to return!

Maui Wowee!

  • 5 of 5

All we can say is this place really does have it all. In the heart of paradise, this condo was everything we could ask for and more. The unit was exactly what we bargained for and Chris and Jim take special care to make sure their guests don't have to worry about a thing. We have recommended this unit to two of our family members already and will do so again and again when asked about our stay in Kihei. We loved every minute of our stay and would go back in a heartbeat!
