Recent South Kihei (Kamaole I & II Beaches Area) reviews

  • Home away from Home in Paradise! Great view at an amazing price.

    "There were so many things to love about this delightful vacation condo at the Kihei Akahi! Communication with the owners was excellent. The photo of the view from the balcony is the real deal. We thoroughly enjoyed having our coffee out on the balcony each morning and discussing our plans for the day. Beautiful view of the ocean on one side and on clear days, a nice view upcountry on the other. A sweet little brown bird frequently visited to check out if we'd dropped any crumbs from our breakfast. Plumeria blossoms gently drifted down to the courtyard below in the light breeze. The proximity to the beach is one of the best features - it's less than 5 minutes until your toes hit the sand! We got up early each morning to enjoy a beach stroll and each evening we joined the people on Kam II for the nightly sunset countdown ritual. My husband went snorkeling on the point between Kam II & III and saw two turtles. You can tell that the owners have put a lot of thought into the needs of their guests. There are guidebooks for Maui and the guestbook is a treasure trove of useful tips from former guests. There is a good variety of kitchen utensils and the pantry cupboard has everything you need from a sewing kit to packing tape for those parcels to send home. The in-suite laundry facilities are very convenient. And the closet in the bedroom is chock full of beach equipment. We made good use of the snorkel gear, beach chairs, and the cooler. There were also boogie boards and sand castle-making toys for children. Some folks may find the kitchen cabinets a little dated and the carpet a little tired & worn but we were quite happy to forego the Better Homes & Gardens look in exchange for such an affordable price. The unit was clean. The decor had cute tropical touches and we felt very at home and comfortable. The condo is within easy walking distance of many shops and restaurants. I highly recommend the wonderful Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods store which is less than a 5 minute walk away. They stock many locally grown fruits & vegetables and their produce prices were better than the Foodland further up the road. We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at this unit in the Kihei Akahi and we'd definitely consider staying here again if we ever return to beautiful Maui."

  • Cozy condo for our 30th

    "Ed & Kathryn are excellent hosts of their cozy condo in Kihei. They responded quickly and kindly to our questions and requests. The complex is across the street from Charley Young Beach and is close to some of the best snorkeling in Maui. It is clean, and has a gated pool for each of the three buildings. The condo is warmly decorated in beach-like decor--I believe some of the watercolors were painted by Kathryn. There are lots of towels, some beach chairs and umbrella, snorkel gear, ice chest, et al for your use. We appreciated that the condo had wifi and a washer and dryer. Ed & Kathryn made it easy to feel comfortable in their condo and to explore Maui. Mahalo!"

  • Rough start but no complaints

    "The most important information you need to know is that the owner is very good to work with. There were some issues we found on arrival and they were dealt with immediately and we were grateful. We spoke with the owner who lives on the mainland. He relies on his contacts in Maui, and that can cause some issues for him at times. He does his best tho, and we were satisfied in the end. This resort is one of the oldest in Kihei and it can show it in the units. This unit has no direct view of the water, but a sideways look off the lanai gives you a nice glance. The water sounds and breeze at night are perfect, and no one has direct view into this unit for nice privacy. The stairs right outside the door are so convenient, but the elevator is not a far walk either. Having a washer and dryer in the unit is helpful. Beach towels, linens, a full (but small) kitchen make living easy. We also used the boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella. While the unit is small (850 sf) it is laid out well and having windows on 3 sides make for a comfortable stay. There is no A/C but none is needed with the ceiling fans running. A TV in each bedroom and the living room let everyone have what they want. The location is so convenient, and while you will hear traffic and people throughout the day, the noise is gone by 10:00pm and only the birds will wake you in the morning. Parking is easy, the location perfect for every direction and the access to the water and snorkeling right outside your door. Grab a glass of wine, and pull up a lawn chair to watch the turtles feed every late afternoon while the sunset relaxes you completely. We enjoyed our first stay in Kihei, and are grateful for the easy communication with the owner. But, remember this is not a hotel. You will not get cleaning service during your stay, and the main office is closed after 4:00 pm and all weekend. If you need help you must contact the emergency number, which didn't initially answer when we called. You will get only basic paper goods, but once you run out you buy your own. Bring your own shampoo/conditioner/soap because you only get one tiny bottle of each. One use and you need to get your own. This unit is not handicap (wheelchair) accessible due to at least 2 steps in any direction to the front door. But there is a lift in the pool and walkers and cane users are not going to have trouble. Thank you Dennis for your hospitality. We enjoyed our stay."

  • Good place to stay in Maui (Kihei)

    "This was our first Hawaiian vacation. We have teenagers ages 15 and 18 years old. The condo was exactly as describe and it’s stocked with EVERYTHING you need, a lots of towels, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, even boogie boards. The beach is just across the street. If we stay in Maui again, we will definitely come back. Honestly, from the moment that I sent an inquiry, I got a super fast response, Karen is a pleasure to deal with, she answers very quickly and she’s very helpful, she answered ALL my questions and more ! The condo is very perfect for a couple or family with children. I am very pleased with this unit and the owners. Thank you Karen to share your condo with my family. The memories will be unforgettable!!!"
