About Petra and Terry

We are a couple from Washington which fell in love with Maui the first time we visited this amazing island. Ever since that time we are coming back and dream about retiring here. This year we had the opportunity to acquire this beautiful condo where we can escape to for a couple weeks of the year. Now we would like to share it with you and make you feel like we do when we are here......'Home away from Home'!

Petra and Terry purchased this studio in 2014

Why Petra and Terry chose South Maui

Kihei Akahi is beautifully landscaped and well maintained. Super close to some of the best sandy beaches, located in the heart of Kihei with everything you need in walking distance. By car or bus, Kihei Akahi's central location is close to everything else this beautiful Island has to offer.

What makes this studio unique

Only 2 minutes walk to the beach just across the street. A quiet corner studio with nice breeze on the 4th floor. Watch the sunrise from behind the mountains on your lanai while having your morning coffee. Since this gem is located on the east facing side, it stays cooler than most other condos.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Wonderfull Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was our second visit to Petra & Terry's studio. And we will be happy to visit this wonderful place next year again. It is corner studio on the 4th floor, very quiet place. Never hot inside! There is an air-conditioner in the studio but we newer use it! Great location: steps to the best beach. Shops, cafes, restaurants - very close, you can get there by foot.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was my Wife and I's first vacation alone together after almost 7 years of marriage. I don't think we could've pick a better spot! The room was beautiful and provided all of the amenities we needed. My favorite thing to do was sitting on the lanai with my coffee as the sun came up! The entire property is beautiful. I recommend this room to any couple or small family that wants a home away from home for there vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Tyler! Glad it finally worked out for you to have a vacation alone with your wife. We agree, sitting on the lanai with the first coffee when the sun comes up is very peaceful! We also love being woken up by the happy singing of the birds. Come back anytime ..

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Petra & Terry's unit could not have been any better! Just like other reviews have said, they have helped by stocking the unit with items that help keep your packing at a minimum & the washer/dryer was an added bonus!! We truly spent very little time in the unit with there being so many activities in the area, we did the road to Hana, biked down Haleakala with Maui Sunriders, took a snorkeling charte, hung out at the beach & are Hawaiian Shaved ice daily! Another important amenity to not leave out was the fact that we seen security walking around keeping an eye on things day & night, which was important to us because we had a softop jeep. I felt like we were very centrally located to everything great that Maui had to offer! I would book again in a heartbeat!!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This little slice of paradise right across from one of the best beaches on Maui has everything you need for a great low key vacation.

Booking was super easy, check in was a dream with the door code and the studio suite itself is perfect for a single or a couple. Super clean and nicely updated. You don't spend much time in the unit as there's so much to do on Maui but it suited our needs well with a well stocked kitchen, towels, coolers, snorkel gear,

Tommy Bahama chairs etc. A run along the beach, back for coffee and breakfast on the lanai and then it's beach time. We really only ate, showered and slept in the unit but it was awesome to have a washer and dryer available so you don't have to pack a lot.

The owners were super easy to deal with and very friendly with lots of tips for the island. I've traveled to Maui a number of times but still appreciated it.

The Akahi itself is a beautiful property with gorgeous landscaping, 2 pools with gas fired grills, and is literally right across the street from Kamaole II. We cooked and ate by the pool several nights and it was perfect. We had friends staying in another unit so it was a great place to have happy hour as well. I brought 2 beach towels from home as I like to have a couple to go back and forth with and I'm glad I did. There are 2 in the unit but with multiple swims a day it was nice to have an extra.

The location of the Kihei Akahi can't be beat. 20 minutes from the airport, right across from the beach and next door to Moose McGillicuddy's, Fred's Mexican and the 808 Bistro and Deli. Lots of shops and ice cream nearby as well and if you're ok with a longer stroll or a quick drive the Tiki Lounge and the Paia Fish Market are both awesome options for quick easy meals and cocktails. These are up by Kalama Park. Foodland is right there as well if you run out of your Costco groceries.

I would absolutely book this unit again and would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Hi Carmen, Thank you for paying us the highest compliment when you said, " It was a perfect". We are so glad that you guys had a great time at our condo finding everything you needed and meeting up with your friends was so easy. Reading your review makes me want to be in Maui right now! I know how important it is for travelers to get a very accurate idea of the place they will be staying. So happy that you liked the central location and mentioned all the nearby restaurants. That's one reason we have bought here, along with short walk across the street, being right at the beach. We are so glad we decided on the keyless door lock, so late check ins are never a problem and this was related to us so many times. Thank you again for choosing our condo and thank you for your awesome review. You have been great to work with and I hope you visit us again for your next Maui stay. Mahalo, Petra & Terry

A lovely cosy unit near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay very much in this cosy studio unit near the beach (Kam II). The unit is comfortable, well equipped, and provides for your every need. The air-conditioning unit was also a plus particularly in the mornings as the unit faces east and is exposed to the morning sun. Also, pre-arrival information and instructions were both detailed and much appreciated. Petra and Kelly go the extra mile to make sure your stay is as good as it can be. Mine certainly was. Thank you!

Overpriced for what is provided

  • 2 of 5

This place was okay; overpriced for what is provided. You're paying more for the location. What was provided in the condo (and limited): one napkin roll, one and a quarter of toilet paper; one set of sheets; dull kitchen knives; one kitchen trash bag; towels; beach supplies. The point of getting a condo with a kitchen is to be able to use it, the knives were awful. We couldn't cut a pineapple correctly because the knives were so dull. There was one trash bag provided and that was it. We kept having to collect bags at stores to use as trash bags. There were plenty of towels which was nice; however the owners suggested that towels be washed and folded. There were damp smelly towels in the dryer when we got there, I'm assuming from the previous renter. So the place wasn't checked prior to our arrival. During our stay the property was doing, what seemed to be, an annual pest control visit. We had to pack and cover all of our items since we had no idea how harmful it was going to be. We had to be out of the condo by 8:00 and had no idea when they were going to be done with everything. It would have been nice to know or at least have a heads up about something like this. The last day we were at the condo, we were rushing to check out by 11:00. Since we felt that we had to wash the towels, it took a long time to finish those up, we left a few minutes before 11:00. The owner's friend or owner was waiting outside of the condo, waiting/making sure we were gone and out of the condo right at 11:00. I told her about the toilet paper, she said "that's strange, I always make sure there are two full rolls" Overall, it was annoying dealing with dumb things that we shouldn't need to worry about on our honeymoon. If it wasn't so pricey, I wouldn't complain about the crappy things about this condo.

Owner's Response: Aloha Dee, We are sorry, you feel that way about your stay at our condo. We still feel strongly that our kitchen is very well equipped with two coffee makers, blender, waffle maker, lots of pots and pans, etc. The knives may get dull, but there is also a knife sharpener provided as well as steak knives…. But we will certainly purchase a new knife set. We always take our guests comments seriously. It clearly states in documentation provided to our guests prior to arrival that ONLY one starter roll of ea. will be provided, since this is not a hotel with daily service. The studio was very well cleaned and checked prior to your arrival and had a brand new bed sheet set on it. A second bed sheet set was and is on the self above the beach supplies. Yes, we do ask, if your time allows, to start some laundry since the washer and dryer are small– but it is NOT mandatory. Just as in your case we have many back-to-back bookings because of our great and low rate. There is not a lot time for staff to wash all towels and sheets and try them in the short time available until the next guests arrives and that might have been the reason you had some towels left in the dryer! We apologize for the inconvenience about the pest control. We do understand that this has interrupted your vacation and is disappointing. This is set up by the resort and as it is a mandatory thing, out of our hands. We don’t live on the island, but we are certain, that the resort has posted information about this everywhere, since they are very good advertising/posting any maintenance that has to be done. Again, we apologize for the pest control, if we would have known about this maintenance far in advance before any bookings, we would have blocked these dates for booking. Mahalo and we sincerely hope your next vacation will be as you hope for
