Our recent stay
We travelled to Maui for our wedding and stayed at this condo for 6 nights. Check in was easy and smoothe and instructions/communication with the owners was good. However, the condo is not well-maintained. Cleanliness issues, dirty dishes in the dishwasher, lights burnt out, and dusty. We will not choose this rental in our future Maui stays.
We are disappointed that our condo was not what it should be for our guest. And although this is only the 2nd time in 15 years we have had this happen, be assured we do not take it lightly. We have contacted our cleaning company, and will create a standardized cleaning checklist to prevent future neglect. We would hope that guests would contact ourselves or the housekeeper from the phone numbers we give them to let us know what has happened and be able to correct the issue immediately.
I sometimes wish we could live on island to be able to come over to address concerns like this, but, I am sure our cleaning company will come up to the needed standard.
The condo was located directly across the street from the beach making it very convenient. We could walk to local restaurants such as Coconuts and Cafe O’Lei. The pool areas were nice and the allotted parking space easy to get in and out of. The condo had everything we needed - beach chairs, towels, cooler, etc. We had a very nice stay and would definitely stay here again.
Thank you. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay.
We loved our stay in C309. The bed was amazing.. The condo was very neat and clean. Really enjoyed the use of the beach umbrella and beach chairs. The condo was stocked with what ever we needed. We made sure to replenish so it is ready the next lucky visitors.
The location was perfect. We could not have asked for a better experience!
Thank you Marian and Martin. We are always glad you came to our condo.
Great size condo, nice community, & great location!
Great location, WALKING distance to all the Kihei restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream, yummy food trucks! Everything you’d need! Friendly, clean & quiet community! I would definitely go back & highly recommend Kihei Akahi!
Great location In a Kihei, easy beach access, condo units easily accessible.
The complex property is nice. Pool, tennis courts, BBQ areas, easy parking. The unit itself has great ocean views from the balcony, great place to have coffee/breakfast in the morning. The condo has plenty of kitchen ware, pans, utensils etc... Bed is comfortable.
I would love to stay here again as it is a great location, the property is beautiful and useful, the view is spectacular! I would just ask that it is really looked after better with better dusting and cleaning performed.
2 complaints I have are not against the condo itself but against whoever cleans the property between rentals. I am not a clean freak per say, but I do expect things to be dusted and well taken care of. The furniture in the unit is very nice, but everything had a layer of dust on it that had been that way for quite some time like picture frames, bathroom towel holders, ledges etc.... I like a dust free atmosphere. The fans that were in the unit were in need of a cleaning. The fans had so much dust on them it was hard to feel comfortable running them. It would be very hard for a person with serious allergies to use them at all. All places we have stayed in Maui, as it is a yearly trip, have had things in the unit like sunscreen, coffee, spices, condiments, things that make store trips expensive and that you barely use when on a trip to make meals or simply enjoy a nice cup of coffee without breaking the bank and then leaving the spices, coffee creamer, sunscreen behind. I felt like the person cleaning benefitted from items left behind as I feel they are probably removed from the property and not much cleaning is done.
We are regretful the condo was not up to the standard that it normally is. When we spoke to our housekeeper, she was extremely apologetic when she had checked the condo right after the guest had departed. She explained she had not stopped by to check her employee’s work due to her own illness the day it was cleaned, and stated it certainly wouldn’t happen again. Nor has it actually happened before. We have had our housekeeper for 15 years, and trust her implicitly. We do encourage our cleaners to take whatever perishables are left., but we do not feel these are being removed at the expense of cleaning properly. I have never experienced having spices and sunscreen provided at the rentals we stay at, but I will be questioning other owners to see what their practices are.
Our first impression of Gayla & Kevin’s condo at the Kihei Akahi was positive, as the unit was sparkling clean. And our experience over our week reinforced our good fortune to have chosen this condo! It was perfect for my husband & I! It has all the comforts of home - a fully stocked kitchen, good books to read, & beach supplies, including beach chairs, beach towels, noodles, & boogie boards! The Maui guidebook, Maui Revealed, was the best! The unit has a spacious feel. The building is well constructed. We hardly heard any sounds from our next door, above or below neighbours. The bedroom has a long mirrored closet with plenty of cupboard space, hangers, & room for clothes(& suitcases). There is also a dresser with lots of drawers for folded clothing. Most importantly, there is a comfy king bed with a great mattress topper. Even though I have joint pain, I had no problem with sleeping. The one issue, is noise from the elevator, which the bedroom is next to. As I wear ear plugs, I did not hear a thing, but my husband took himself off to the couch a couple of times, which he found quite comfortable. The toilet, bathtub & shower are in a separate room, so the bathroom area is functional. There is a decent amount of space for toiletries. The fabulous shower head gave one of the best showers I have ever had! The kitchen is very well equipped. No shortage of amenities with this condo rental!! There are numerous place settings, so you do not run out of dishes after one snack or meal, a plus! I was very pleased with kitchen supplies. There are several salad bowls, many utensils, including several spatulas! Not only are there paper towels and dish soap, but tin foil, plastic wrap & some spices. What a pleasant treat! And the dishwasher works well. There is an air conditioner available but we found the fans & the cross breeze kept us cool. Having a washer & dryer was a big plus, & laundry detergent & stain remover were provided. The living/dining room was both comfortable & functional. We enjoyed the large glass dining room table for 4 with comfy chairs. The flat screen TV gave us plenty of entertainment & the comfy couch provided hours of relaxation. We also appreciated the Hawaiian music CDs! A highlight of our mornings was coffee on the lanai with its table & chairs & a pretty view of the ocean. In the evening we could watch the sunset from there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have stayed in condos all around the world & this is one of the best.
Mila, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our condo. We sincerely appreciate the the warm review. Although we don't have a problem of the noise outside the bedroom window during our 2 visits during each year, we do plan to install double pane windows when we can afford it, hoping that will help anyone that does experience an issue.
Mahalo, and Aloha to you. Hope you come back to visit again.
