Overview

About the property

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 a few steps to the north in the Kamaole Shopping Center. Top it off with a little ice cream or yogurt at Cones on Kihei. 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.

Great town and great travels around Maui.

The bedroom never seems to cool down, but the rest of the property was very enjoyable. We so enjoyed the balcony and the view. Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you for your high rating Gary. It means a lot to us. As we approach the summer months in Hawaii, the higher temperatures do tend to make the 1 bedroom units at Kihei Akahi a bit warmer. The ceiling fan in our bedroom helps mitigate this. We also have a table fan and a tower fan on hand for our Guests. For those who are particularly temperature sensitive, we suggest booking a unit that has a "split-system" air conditioner with a cooling unit located in the bedroom. There a few of these on hand at Kihei Akahi now. Marilyn and I will be gauging their performance to determine overall effectiveness. Thanks again Gary for your comments and rating. Brian

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Marilyn have a beautiful condo. We have stayed at the Kihei Akahi many times and this is one of the best suites we have stayed in. A thoughtful surprise awaited us when we arrived. A welcome message on the blackboard and coffee and chocolates on the kitchen island. Very clean, nicely decorated, comes with all the kitchen amenities you could want, very comfortable king size bed, luxurious shower, very cool from the island breezes, nice view from the lanai. Definitely comes as advertised. Brian called a few days after we arrived asking how we had settled in and if we had any concerns. That was a very nice touch and of course we had no issues. Brian is very easy to deal with and very accommodating. Any emails were promptly answered. We enjoyed our stay very much and will book again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Marilyn and I are always pleased to hear that our Guests enjoyed their stay on Maui and at Kihei Akahi (and, of course, our condo). It was fun chatting with both of you. We look forward to having you back soon. Brian

Ocean view and great location. I am not leaving!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks in this lovely condo. We have visited Maui many times but have always stayed near Lahaina. We found that we prefer this location. Trips to see sunrise at Haleakala are much easier from here. The condo is equipped with everything you might need. We were thrilled with the beach chairs, umbrellas, ice chest and 2 boogie boards. The beach is a short walk from the condo and is wonderful. We spent many hours sitting on the lani whale watching. Groceries,shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance of the condo. We especially enjoyed using the grills by the pool.We found the people to be especially friendly here. I appreciated the owner calling us our first day to be sure that all was ok with the condo. We will be happy to return to this condo.
