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 as they tell the story. Most 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 Kihei

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. Now, we'd like to pass forward the great 'fun in the sun' experiences we've enjoyed so much at Kihei Akahi.

We are thrilled to have found this beautiful condo and to add our own special touches based on our experience renting units at Kihei Akahi. We are pleased to make it available for guests and 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.

Amazing Condo in beautiful Maui

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Brian & Marilyn.

Your condo was the perfect place for us to have our honeymoon. It was amazing and very well equipped from inside to beach supplies (kitchen very well stocked) and the phone call to see if everything was ok and that we were settled in was an added touch mahalo. We enjoyed many evenings sitting with a glass of wine enjoying the view and sunsets. It's the perfect location to beaches, shopping, restaurants etc. We would highly recommend family & friends to stay in your condo. I know we will be back for sure 2019. I've been to Maui 5 times and I stayed in this resort before and your updated condo was awesome. Until next time. Mahalo Karen & Roy Jones

Great location. Wonderful for 2 people. All the beach accessories were a real bonus.

  • 4 of 5

Brian is the perfect host. Kitchen is complete. Very good bed. Comfortable living space. Clean. All the beach accessories were super. Tommy Bahama beach chairs & umbrella, towels, boogie boards. Just bring swimsuit & snorkel gear!

Lanai looks out to Pacific & you can see the sun setting. Short walk down private road to beach. Close to many restaurants & happy hours. Close to great beaches in Makenna too! Have tennis court but highly recommend the Wailea Tennis Club short distance away. Wonderful stay! Never used the pools but never saw many people there. Beach & Ocean for us. Very economical stay. Would do it again in a heart beat!

Do we really have to leave?

What a great condo. It had everything we needed during our two week stay. Great view of the ocean and a close walk to the beach and restaurants. Super quiet and amazing gardens with many different kinds of native plants and flowers. We will definitely be back. Mahalo!
