Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom/1 bathroom, fully remodeled condo with ocean view ready for you!

This splendid 1 bed/1 bath condo has been completely remodeled and is now available for guest rental. It has everything you need to comfortably enjoy your stay in paradise.

Features Include: Granite countertops; New appliances, including washer/dryer; Updated cabinets in the kitchen/bathroom; Wonderful walk-in shower, and; Ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. The beautiful bow on this perfect package is the elegant tile floor extending from bedroom to lanai. For our guests’ added safety and convenience, this condo also features an electronic door lock as well as A/C and secure, high-speed, Wi-Fi.

The condo is located on the 2nd floor of Kihei Akahi's desirable and quiet 'D' building, away from the hum of South Kihei. Yet, it’s close enough to Kamaole Beach Park II that surf & sand are just five minutes from your door. By the way, the 2nd floor does not skimp on the view. This floor is actually the building’s third level (above the Ground and First floors). Highly scenic!

Kihei Akahi works hard to preserve its reputation as being a well-run, well-maintained property. Both swimming pools are kept neat and clean and the landscaping is immaculate. If tennis is your racket, Kihei Akahi has you covered with a great, fully-fenced, court. What's more, BBQ/picnic areas are conveniently located near each pool. You can cap off a fantastic day of fun and sun with grilled burgers and steak (you’ll find all the utensils you need in the kitchen). It doesn’t get much better than this. . .

Unless, you prefer to have someone else do the cooking. In this case there are several great restaurants nearby starting with Fred's Mexican Café and 808 Bistro, both right next door. Sarento’s on the Beach and Monkeypod are just two of many excellent choices a short drive away (5-10 minutes). Looking for something quick and easy? Subway is located just to the north in the Kamaole Shopping Center. Enjoy a little ice cream or yogurt at Kihei Aloha's to top it off. Perfection!

Kihei Akahi has been described as “the center of it all” for good reason. To the north is Kamaole Beach Park I. Across the street is Kamaole II and just to the south is Kamaole III. The Wailea golf courses (3) as well as The Shops at Wailea are only a few minutes away by car. These are just some of the happy discoveries we made during our first stay at Kihei Akahi several years back. We’re certain you will have no trouble making your own wonderful memories here.

Please enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai. Take the beach chairs and towels across the street to Kam II for the day. Read a chapter. Walk the beach. Let the surf catch you without a care. Feel the gentle warmth of the afternoon trade winds blow through your hair. And admire the sunset over the Pacific – it truly is extraordinary. Oh, and don’t forget to do a little star-gazing (both kinds are brilliant on Maui). The next day, what the heck, do it all over again. ;)

Bottom Line: We believe you will thoroughly enjoy your stay here. Please be sure to take a look at the photographs - they tell the story. Best of all - relax. On Maui, time is on your side. Mahalo!

About Brian & Marilyn

Marilyn and Brian are longtime Alaskans currently living in Anchorage. Marilyn moved north in the early 90's from Texas, Brian in the early 80's from the state of Washington.

The Aloha State is considered a second home to many here in the Last Frontier. It's not uncommon to run into friends and neighbors at Costco or Lowes in Kahului - just like home!

Speaking of which, when the ground freezes over and the snow blows sideways for days and then it warms up enough to rain and you think you just saw a Zamboni run a red light, that's when it's time to book the Alaska Airlines flight to Maui!

But, hey, it's Hawaii . . . who needs an excuse? ;)

Brian & Marilyn purchased this condo in 2014

Why Brian & Marilyn chose South Maui

Over the last several years we’ve visited the Big Island and Oahu, but have decided that Maui - and Kihei in particular - are just right for us. As new owners at Kihei Akahi, we'd like to pass forward the great 'fun in the sun' experiences we've enjoyed so much at KA.

We are thrilled to have found this beautiful condo and to add our own special touches based on our experience renting these units here at Kihei Akahi. We are pleased to now make it available for guests. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Kihei Akahi is the perfect place. You are close to everything you could want to see or do, but you also get to enjoy the relaxed, quiet-side of Island Life. Whether you are here for a few days, or an entire month, Kihei is the place you want to return time and again. We would be very pleased to welcome you back. Enjoy the photos. Mahalo.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Marilyn's home became our home for two weeks. It was well equipped with all the things we needed to make our vacation stay just like being at home. They were very cordial in accommodating to our late departure from the island. We really hated to leave and would love to come back and stay with them again. Thanks for everything.

This condo has it all!!!

  • 5 of 5

From watching beautiful sunsets on the lanai to being close to the best beach on Maui you couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

The kitchen had everything's you need to cook indoors or outdoors at the poolside BBQ.

The interior of the condo is impeccable.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you and Ron had a great time. Watching the sun set over the Pacific from the lanai really is a spectacular sight. That's one of the things Brian and I always look forward to when we are on Maui. Thank you for staying with us and for your nice review. Marilyn

Great memories in Maui

  • 4 of 5

Thank for sharing your second home. It was beautifully decorated and fully supplied for all our needs. The condo was not far from the beach. The beach chairs and umbrella were a plus! It was nice to have an elevator and the balcony was great with a peek a boo view of the ocean. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the condo. King size bed was great and very comfortable. Maui was beautiful but it was very hot in August. We had to use A/C 24/7. So blessed to have the a/c for this time of the year. it was nice to have a breeze when we went to the beach to swim or watch the beautiful sunsets. The pool was fantastic and we did put the gas grills to use. The only cons was the noise for a month from the condo next to us. They were renovating it and we heard a lot of drilling, hammering...... Plus having to empty the pans every four hours that were under the a/c wall unit to catch the water dripping out of the unit. Also, a crock pot would be great! Very expensive to buy food in Hawaii so cooking in was less expensive. I would come back and stay again. Felt very homey!

Owner's Response: Linda and Dennis, Thank you for booking with us and for your thoughtful review. Marilyn and I are happy to hear you enjoyed your time on Maui. Of course, August in Hawaii can be warm to say the least which explains our steep discounting program during the summer months. But, it's good to know the A/C was helpful. Your suggestion of a crock pot is well taken. We will remember this the next time we are on Maui. Thank you again for your comments. We look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes, Brian

Beautiful, peaceful, close to everything you'll need!

  • 5 of 5

I thought this was a great compromise on price and location. While it's not beachfront, you still have a beautiful view off the lanai. The short walk to the beach and the local restaurants worked very well for the two of us. Originally we thought it might small, but the open floor plan was fine. We probably could have comfortably had a good friend in there with us if they were willing to stay on the couch.

The condo was nicely decorated, squeaky clean, and had everything to make our stay comfortable and simple.

Kitchenware? Got em. Spices? Good selection. Laundry detergent was provided. There were enough places to plug in all the electronics that come with modern life without hunting for a power strip. There was even some coffee available so I didn't suffer through my first morning without caffeine!

If I had to describe the shower in one word, it would be luxurious. The bedroom was nice, and the entire condo was well positioned so we got a lovely breeze that cooled down the bedroom to keep it a comfortable temperature.

The beach towels, chairs, and boogie boards were all clean, in new shape, and great fun on the beach.

We will be going back!

Fabulous Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Kihei Akahi condo and were very impressed and pleased with everything about it.

Kihei Akahi is a complex directly across the street from Kam II - a very popular beach in south Kihei. The beach has good snorkeling and a lifeguard. This condo is in the D building which is the most desired building in the complex because it sits back off the street which eliminates the traffic noise. The lay of the land slopes up away from the beach so you also have a great ocean view! There are shops and restaurants within walking distance which makes getting getting a bite to eat or picking up supplies easy and convenient.

This condo was sparkling clean and comfortably furnished! The kitchen had any thing you might need to prepare meals yourself. The king side bed was super comfortable. Lawn chairs, cooler, boogie boards, beach towels, binoculars (great during whale watching season) were all provided. We received a call from the property management company the evening we arrived making sure that the condition of the condo met our expectations. The owners also called a day or so later checking in to make sure there was nothing we needed or wanted. The owners communicated with me a few times before the trip and they are super nice and helpful!

I've been to Maui several times because my sister lives here. Kihei Akahi is my favorite complex and I've stayed in a couple other units. This unit is by far my favorite!

Owner's Response: Barbara, Marilyn and I are very pleased to hear you had a good time on your vacation. You are absolutely right about Kihei Akahi - location is everything. That was certainly one of the things that impressed us about this complex. We are happy that you found our condo comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you for the nice comments. We hope to see you again soon. Mahalo! Brian
