About Daniel Moth
Daniel and Jenny have known each other since 1993. They've lived in various European countries before emigrating to Seattle (WA) where they've been living since 2008. Daniel works at Microsoft, and Jenny is also a software developer. They have visited all the Hawaiian islands and fell in love with Maui, and specifically Kihei. Kihei is the driest, sunniest of all of Maui, and it has the best underwater world with many dive/snorkeling sites including Molokini - a short trip from Kihei Boat Ramp. It is also very walk-able, and when you choose to drive you can find car parking easily (unlike other places on the island...). We try to visit the island twice a year for 2-4 weeks each time, boogie boarding in Kamaole Beach III, snorkeling between Kamaole Beach I and II, and sometimes walking further south to Keawakapu Beach or driving to Big Beach. We try to eat all our meals on the lanai, watch the sunset every single day, and stroll up and down S Kihei Rd after a game of tennis or other activity...
Daniel Moth purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Daniel Moth chose Kihei
Proximity to beach, ocean view, minimum noise, safety, privacy, affordable first-class lifestyle. When choosing our Kihei condo the most important criteria was that it had to be somewhere across from Kamaole Beach I, II, or III - there is little point in travelling all the way to Maui and not be able to walk a few steps and be on one of the Top 5 beaches in Maui. Second criterion was Ocean View even from inside the unit - if you are going to be so close to the sea, why not be able to see it! Then for units that met those criteria, there were factors that eliminated some of them. For example, ground floor units, because of the reduced privacy and safety, plus bugs can sometimes be an issue, so we wanted a higher floor. We also eliminated units that were directly on Kihei Rd, because the traffic noise seems to get trapped in those units, we wanted a quiet place. Finally, another feature of Kihei Akahi is that it has solid concrete walls and construction, whose benefits include better noise insulation from neighbors, and better temperature characteristics. Its two swimming pools, nicely manicured grounds, tennis court, and outside grills for BBQing were all bonus features!
What makes this Condo unique
Kihei Akahi units in the D building have nice breezes flowing through when you leave open the entrance door (East) and the lanai door (West) - our lockable steel-screen secondary front door facilitates that. Also the two ceiling fans in the unit help with air flow. Our condo has been very well maintained, very clean, and has had various upgrades. Unlike other condos in the building it doesn't have the popcorn ceilings that trap dirt, it doesn't have the older style louvered windows that accumulate grime, and it doesn't have carpets to capture dust/moisture. It also has aesthetically pleasing and functional furniture throughout that we love! Checkout the photos.

Great place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay. It was close to a lot of restaurants & the beach across the street was excellent. We would stay here again!
This property was wonderful. Nicely updated with a ocean view. The kitchen is well stocked with lots of cooking supplies. We also really liked the beach gear provided for use. Beach chairs, towels, snorkeling gear, umbrella, and a cooler. These items really came in handy. The condo was very clean and well organized. The owner, Daniel, was easily accessible and made sure to check in on us to ensure everything was to our liking. We will definitely be staying here again.
Great location & amenities!
The apartment was exactly as advertised in the pictures! Check-in was seamless with clear instructions given prior. Daniel was very helpful in providing reminders and answers any questions very promptly. He managed to work with our check-in and check-out timings.
The balcony has a nice view of the beach/ocean! The apartment was really well stocked with all your water/beach needs (think snorkel gear of diff sizes, beach chairs, cooler and mats etc). All this alongside a fully functioning kitchen with lots of extra equipment (coffee maker, blender etc) and guide books.
The condo itself is located along a great stretch with lots of food & supermarkets within walking distance. More importantly, it's safe. We saw consistent night patrols, and everyone adheres to a communal understanding of peace after 10-11pm.
10/10 would recommend
Our son and fiance stayed in this condo and said it was excellent.
very nice location and view. Very clean and well stocked. Property and condo is well taken care of. Would stay again.
A quiet piece of paradise!
Our stay at Kihei Akahi D-211 for Christmas & New Years 2018/19 was amazing. Daniel was great at checking in on us via email to be sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation a delight. The unit is far enough from S. Kihei road that we didn't hear traffic besides the occasional horn honk yet close enough to pack up and walk down to the beach. It was very tidy and had everything we needed to prepare meals, go to the beach, or just relax on the lanai and watch the whales breaching with binoculars Daniel supplied. We have stayed at many different complexes in Maui and we typically see bugs in the unit however we did not see a single bug in Daniel's unit which was a huge plus! Until next time Mahalo - Gene
