About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our beautiful condo is located on the 4th floor of Building 'C' with lovely views of both the ocean and the mountains from the lanai, at the Kihei Akahi Resort in beautiful South Kihei, Maui, Hawaii.

Our condo has been completely upgraded and very well maintained. It is tastefully decorated with Polynesian furniture throughout. Everything one would need to enjoy a pleasant vacation in paradise is here at your finger tips.

Besides renting our condo on VRBO, we live here on Maui which enables us to make sure the condo us always in top notch condition.

There is air conditioning plus 2 ceiling fans, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. For those that prefer the tropical breeze over a/c there is security screen door that can be left open to allow the afternoon breezes to flow through your condo. Ceramic floor tile and Berber carpet are used throughout the condo.

Including in the furnishings are a DVD library and various books if you are need of reading materials. For those that just could not escape without your laptop, there is an all-in-one printer, copier, scanner for your use along with free high speed internet access. There is also free long distance calls; Inter-island, Mainland and Canada.

The kitchen has oak cabinets, an island and beautiful granite countertops. The refrigerator has an in-door water and ice dispenser. The microwave is built-in above the range. The kitchen is open to the dining room as well as the living room, no wall blocking your view, allowing for conversation between the chef and others. All small appliances are just a a year young. Everything you could every need is there for your use while either preparing a meal inside or opting to use one of the poolside bbqs.

The bathroom has a full size prefabricated marble shower. It is stocked with lush towels which are replenished at least twice a year. No need to pack your hairdryer as there is one here.

Enjoy relaxing on your lanai sipping your morning cup of coffee, tea or juice while listening to the island birds greet the sun as it begins to rise over Haleakala. In the evening, the lanai is a pleasant spot to view the sunset if you prefer not to walk across the street to the beach. Whale watching is simply fantastic during whale season.

When you are ready to venture out to one of the many wonderful beaches or even a drive around the island there are Boogie Boards, beach chairs, beach towels, beach mats and even a cooler for your use.

Kihei Akahi has 2 Swimming Pools, Pool Side Barbecues, Tennis Court, Private Parking, Front Desk, Activity Center and 24 hour Security.

The Resort is located across the street from Kamaole Park Beach II and is less than one block from the Kamaole Shopping Mall. We feel that the location is simply perfect, Enjoy!

Kamaole Park Beach II is noted for sensational Swimming, Snorkeling, Boogie-Boarding and Whale Watching. The Sunsets can be very spectacular. We rank this as one of Maui's finest beaches.

Kihei is on the sunny side of the island. Kihei has great beaches, fine dinning, great shopping, farmers markets and much more all within walking distance.


We also own another lovely 1 bedroom unit located in the same building, same floor, just seven doors away, in case you are traveling with another couple looking for their own accommodations.

About Linda Yeates

My husband and I currently live on Maui. Our condos are our home away from home and we have made many updates to make them both comfortable for all of our guests.

We recently purchased another condo which is also in Building 'C' on the same floor, 4th. The main differences are; the newest condo does have a shower plus tub. This condo has been recently updated with all new kitchen items; small appliances such as toaster, blender, coffee maker, knife block, dishes, pots and pans, cooking utensils, stemware, silver ware, bath linens, king bed and all new lines, lamps, air conditioning. We also purchased new lawn chairs, beach towels, mats, cooler. I am sure that either condo will make your visit to Maui comfortable and enjoyable.

Thank you to all who have made the choice to return to both of our condos year after year!

Why Linda Yeates chose Kihei

Much went into our decision to purchase our condo here in Kihei. We feel that Kihei is a great location as it is on the leeward side of Haleakhala, therefore, offering some of the sunniest weather on the island. The afternoon tradewinds are delightful. We are fortunate to be located across the street from one of the best beaches on Maui and just a short distance from many other wonderful beaches. We are only about a mile from Wailea and all of it's wonderful shops and fine restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Many of our guests tell us the reason they return each year is because we continue to keep our condo updated. Everything you could ever need is there at your finger tips. Waking each morning to the sound of the birds, enjoying breakfast on the lanai, watching the sunrise over Haleakala and the whales frolicking in the ocean before heading out for wonderful morning walks along the beach...what better way to start each day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda!

We had (are having) a wonderful time! We've done so many things...snorkelling (saw Sea Turrtles!!!), Boogie Boarding (went to the beach off of Makarta? Road--mentioned it in Maui Revealed, which you recommended), had D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S meals where ever we went. Took a few tours, one with Pacific Whale Foundation and the other with Cruiser Phils to go up the volcano...I loved that--we cycled down...well I cycled most of the way down--got back on the van for the hairpin turns.

We went to Mama's Fish House for our 30th anniversary...they gave me a floral lay (not sure how to spell that). Absolutely delicous food and service there. Thanks so much for recommending it! We also ate at Alexanders, Freds, the Moose Pub and at Pita Paradise to mention a few. Oh yes, last night we had dinner at the Flatbread Pizza Place in Paia (know that's spelled wrong), and that was fantastic too. The people here are darn friendly! I took a two hour traditional Hawaiian quilt course at the Maui Quilt Shop---sooo much fun, and met the nicest ladies in the course. We also found another quilt shop in a mall--I love our GPS! I bought the loveliest fabric to make myself a quilt out of Batiks.

This morning we got up and snorkelled again and plan on going out to BB one more time. We're sad about leaving this gorgeous place--everything, starting with your lovely condo, was picture perfect. We truly hope to come back sooner than later!

Thank you ever so much for sharing your lovely condo with us!

Very nice unit close to beach

We didn’t have an ocean view from our unit. But it was across the street

Owner's Response: There is an ocean view from the lanai, close enough to see the whale. The condo is located directly across the street from the beach with no condos on the oceanside. Great sandy beach, lawn area, restrooms, lifegaurds, bbg areas and picnic tables.

Lovely suite in a great location near Kamaole 2

  • 4 of 5

This is a well equipped and maintained unit with a good view of the beautiful sunsets. We've stayed in the Kihei Akahi numerous times and this is probably the nicest unit we've stayed in though some have better views of the sea. Only negative for us this year was the new policy in the complex not to recycle anything except refundable cans/bottles. This means that the great bulk of stuff (cardboard, paper, metal cans, plastic and glass containers) that used to be recycled now goes in the garbage. This feels like a bad way to treat such a beautiful part of the world.

Owner's Response: Nice to hear that you enjoyed the condo...We hope to be able to share our home with you on your next visit. We are hoping to redo the entire condo in tile flooring in the near future. Thank you for treating our home as if it were your home.

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

I visit Maui every year but this is the first time staying in this complex and unit. Linda is awesome! I had several extra requests that Linda attended to graciously and quickly, which made for a more comfortable visit. We had everything we needed in the condo. The king bed was super comfortable, and the mattress pads for the pull out was a great extra touch. Loved the pool with the whale!!! The complex is just far enough off the road that you don't hear traffic but conveniently located to a very short walk across the street to the beach, dining and shops. My granddaughter took the beautiful leis, you left us, home and they are drying as I write this. Linda, it was such a pleasure; you were very pleasant, and fun, to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this complex and your unit again. Thank you again for sharing your home and meeting all of my expectations. I will remember your story about "big booths". Lol. Aloha

Perfect location in Kihei - easy access to best beaches in the area

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and 2 yr old) really enjoyed our stay at this accomodation. This owner/operated unit was clean, well equipped, and quiet. The owner made our visit very easy by communicating ahead of time and being atttentive to any questions or requests we had. After spending a week in Kihei we left convinced that this location had the optimal location for beaches and access to decent restaurants. We'll visit again.
