Jay Likness Hawaii Tax ID #W88539732-01 purchased this condo in 2003
Both of us love the Ocean and warm weather. We first came to the Kihei Akahi in 1988 with other family that owned a place there. We enjoyed it so much we have been coming back year after year. When C-602 became available we felt it was the chance of a lifetime, not only are the 2 bedroom 2 baths rare, we believe ours is the best location in the complex! We can check out beach conditions from the lani, whale watch , and every night see a spectacular sunset from our own unit!
Everything is near by, we usually have a jog or walk in the morning on the beach. There is good snorkeling right in front as well an excellent sandy beach that goes for miles! We often walk the beach all the way to the Resort hotels Grand Wialea, 4 seasons , Marriot, and occasionally stop in at one of the hotel restaurants for a drink or food. We are also avid Tennis players and we play almost daily at the complex.
We really enjoyed our stay. Your place had everything we could want or need. It was very comfortable. There are beach towels, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, even a beach bag to carry everything. Although you don't have to carry it too far, there is a great beach right across the street. There is a crosswalk right at the entrance to the condo driveway. The location was awesome. The best view and sunsets from the lanai. Lots of good restaurants / shops within walking distance.
The kitchen has everything you need from dishes to pots / pans / blender / electric frying pan and even condiments and spices. It was really great and cost effective to be able to cook our own meals instead of having to eat at restaurants all the time. It really was a home away from home.
Jay and Judy were really wonderful to deal with. Very helpful and responsive to any questions we had.
We will definitely come back to your place when we come back to Maui
We have never used VRBO before and we were extremely pleased with this property. Jay and Judy were great to deal with. The property is exactly as described, an immaculate updated 2 bedroom condo with ample room for the 4 people. The interior was clean, with new appliances, an extremely well stocked pantry and an abundance of beach necessities. The property has a beautiful view of Kamaole II beach and Molokini can be seen clearly off in the distance. We spent many evenings socializing on the Lanai watching the sunset and looking out at the waves. The 2 pools and barbecues are kept very clean. Kihei Akahi is situated directly across from Kameole II and a short walk to Kameole III which are very kid friendly beaches with calm waves. No air conditioning, but no need as all the windows open up which allow the trade winds to blow through the condo cooling it off nicely.I would not hesitate at all in recommending this property to my friends and family.
I stayed for two weeks and had a very memorable time. The location was great, right across from the beach. I could see whales from the lanai almost every day. The kitchen had everything and really enjoyed the blender for fresh fruit smoothies.
I would definitely recommend this vacation rental.
We would highly recommend staying in this unit. It is very well equipped, spacious, clean and bright. It definitely feels like a home away from home!! The lanai offered fabulous views of Kamaole II Beach and since we had a baby with us we were able to especially enjoy this lanai to whale watch and take in the breathtaking views. The kitchen was a dream . . . fully equipped with everything one could imagine!!
The owners, Jay and Judy were very responsive upon booking and we truly appreciate them sharing their home in paradise with us. We are sure you won't be disappointed if you stay in this unit.
Condo was very clean and very well stocked - everything you need as boogie boards, umbrellas, mats, plenty of towels. The unit is on the sixth floor with an ocean/beach view, nice breeze, no need for noisy a/c. Close proximity to all that you could visit on foot in Kihei .... across the street from Kamaole II - next door to Fred's for great sunsets and margaritas and the kids said the fish tacos were great. Two swimming pools. The kitchen was well stocked. Spices, condiments, coffee filters, rice, oil, on and on. Don't go to Costco until you have visited the condo first. Stainless steel appliances (toaster, coffee maker, oster blender, nice cutlery, pots and pans w/lids, large electric skillet, plenty of tupperware, mixing bowls, flatware, plates, cups, glasses and cleaning supplies - they even provide clothes and ish soap) and beautiful new cabinets that are well organized. Ice maker actually worked excellent and the ice was good. you save alot of money there. cable tv. the only thing to decide is the pool or the beach. Mahalo
