Have your morning coffee on the lanai listening to the song of the birds and watching sunrise over Haleakala. Afternoon and evening, watch the whales and spectacular sunsets.
Kihei Akahi is located steps from Kamaole II beach. 'Our' beach provides calm sunning and water activities in the morning, great boogie boarding in the afternoon. Good snorkeling can be found at the south end with fish, corals and turtles. During whale season one easily sees whales breach. The beach has a lifeguard on duty, showers, grills and restroom facilities. Sunset draws a crowd each evening to watch for the 'green flash'.
The condo is completely updated. Ample granite counter space anchors the kitchen. Appliances include gas range, side by side refrigerator with ice maker, microwave and dishwasher. The open design allows inclusion and conversation for the chefs.
New porcelain tile flooring connects the entry, kitchen, living and dining rooms and baths. Bedrooms are carpeted. A new walk-in tiled and glass blocked shower adds to the charm of the master bedroom. Both bedrooms have generous closets with shoji screen doors.
The living room is tastefully furnished. A wall mounted flat screen TV provides easy viewing. A DVD/CD player, cable TV, board games and cards provide further entertainment. Wireless wifi lets you stay in touch with friends and family.
Everything you need for an outstanding, relaxing vacation is provided. You will find boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, mats and a cooler at your fingertips.
Three split AC units are available, though rarely needed. The corner location, ceiling fans and the trade-winds provide a wonderful breeze and let you enjoy the sound of the tropical birds.
The beautifully landscaped grounds provide two pools, tennis courts and barbecue facilities. Your designated parking space is right by the elevator.
Besides the proximity to the beach, great restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Shave ice, ATM's, groceries and more are nearby. Bike racks are provided and bike rentals are available.
No smoking, no pets.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place with us. We appreciated all the amenities. It was absolutely beautiful in the morning and the evening with the view. We enjoyed watching the whales from the balcony.
Unfortunately, we are leaving today but hope to return soon. Thank you.
Pam first came to Maui in 1969 with her parents. There have been lots of changes, but the beauty and charm has not lessened.
Pam & Charlie met in Alaska. Charlie spent years in Public Broadcasting while Pam taught history and English. Juneau winters made Maui a favorite getaway for our family of three children. We now enjoy sharing the experience with our grandchildren.
Currently we are split between a base in Seattle, our Maui condo, and Charlie and Pam's work in Nairobi, Kenya. Charlie has worked overseas for USAID the past ten years. His current assignment has provided news in twelve tribal dialect to Southern Sudan and Darfur. Pam has split her time between teaching at the French International School, and volunteer teaching in the Kibera slum.
We hope at some point to have our base in Kihei. Until that time, we hope you will enjoy our 'home away from home' as much as we do.
We had looked for several years before deciding on Kihei Akahi. The views and the beach were major factors. Its location is 'not too far' from activities, yet still provides a quiet, private retreat.
All the modern conveniences and ease of stay combined with location, location, location.
