Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Wake up to the sound of tropical birds welcoming the sun as it rises over Haleakala. From the lanai, enjoy views of sunsets over the island of Lanai. Centrally located and within short walking distance from restaurants, groceries, shopping, and the beach. A short drive from three of the islands major shopping areas with grocery stores, restaurants, fast food, art, and a variety of other services. Numerous golf courses nearby. Observe and photograph the endangered Hawaiian Stilt and the Hawaiian Coot at the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, just minutes away.

Located across the street from Kamaole Beach Park II, a county beach park with lifeguards, restrooms, showers, and two reefs to snorkel around or fish from. Kihei boat launch area is about a 10 minute walk and the departure area for many snorkel and dive trips.

Our Second Home: This is our second home. It is not a motel/hotel unit or a rental agency condo. We have continuously updated the condo and do our best to keep it well stocked and clean which can be a challenge in the tropic environment. Basics such as condiments, spices, paper goods, etc. are in the condo so each new guest does not have to buy them. Our pantry works on a 'use what you need, leave what you have extra for the next guest' basis. No promises on what you will find in the pantry! The boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, beach mats, snorkel gear, and beach toys are available if you wish to use them. Our on-island manager is close by in case of an emergency. Any problems must be reported immediately to our agent. For longer stays a midterm cleaning is recommended. Even with the best of intentions it is hard to adequately clean the unit before you leave and a mid stay cleaning helps to eliminate extra fees. This can be provided by our on-island manager.

Administrative: The condo is available year round. Parking is included in an assigned parking space. Guests are required by law to register with the front office and receive a parking permit to display in the car window. Only cars with parking permits are allowed on site. Cars without permits will be towed by resort security.

Once the unit is booked, a rental contract will be sent to the guest to sign and return. A key box is next to the door and the combination will be given to the guest unless other arrangements are made. A set of keys will be left on the table for the guests use. A lost or non returned key fee of $25.00 will charged if the keys are not returned.

House Rules: House rules are posted in the condo. Please read them. Infractions that can get you removed from the property are: smoking inside the buildings and noise after quiet hours. Smoke in the buildings goes into the central ventilation system and is shared with others in the building almost instantly. Security has an uncanny ability to find the source and a $200 fine ensues. No second warnings; second time the guest is asked to leave the property. Designated outdoor smoking area are provided adjacent to both the C and D buildings. Quiet hours are from 10:00PM to 6:00AM.

This is the tropics. Bugs are a part of the ecosystem! The units are sprayed on a frequent basis to keep the critters out of the condos. Bugs are always looking for a meal so you can discourage them by taking the garbage out daily and not keeping empty beverage containers in the condo. Use the recycling bins or take your drink containers back to the refund center and get your deposits back.

About Dave and Rindi Patterson

Dave and Rindi are both retired from Federal and State jobs with the US Forest Service, National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, the State of Alaska Department of Natural Resources, and the Alaska Department of Transportation. Kihei became our winter retreat to warmer sunnier weather with our two boys. From our home in Anchorage, our neighbor to the west is an easy destination to reach and we have strong ties to both Alaska and Hawaii.

Dave and Rindi Patterson purchased this condo in 1983

Why Dave and Rindi Patterson chose Kihei

After numerous trips to Hawaii and having visited the 6 main islands, camped, hiked, and stayed in a variety of accommodations; we found Kihei Akahi and fell in love with the location and the quiet natural setting. Coming from a life in an uncrowded natural setting, Kihei Akahi was the right choice for us of the many condominium resorts we visited.

What makes this condo unique

Cooking on the grills at the pools and visiting with fellow visitors. Every day, stories of new adventures and special places to visit are the topic around the grills. Eating a meal at the pool while the kids swim is a special pleasure we do not have at home. The sunsets and the blowing of the conch shells brings everyone out to watch the sun go down. Francolins, a quail like bird imported to Maui, can still be seen on the property along with many other local species of birdlife. A short walk away, sooty shearwaters nest along the beach, a species almost gone from Maui. Bocce ball players gather at the park almost daily in winter. Church services are held outdoors in the park Sunday mornings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome to our home away from home. Having rented condos over the years

we decided that the sterile place to sleep with just barely enough to get you

by, just wasn't for us. We leave the boogie boards out, the kids beach toys,

the condiments in the cupboard, and the basics we use are available to you.

All of the kitchen appliances are here with lots of cookware and utensils. Use

what you need, replace what you use up, and if you need assistance, our on-

island manager is only a phone call away. Spend your time enjoying this

beautiful island, not trying to find household goods in the super market.

Aloha and Mahalo for visiting our site.

Leftover unit

  • 3 of 5
Lots of leftovers in the cupboards, refrigerator and bathroom - how old was everything? Only 1 spare garbage bag, a few ants, too many books. Needs a good clean out.

Owner's Response: Our on island manager checks the cupboards, pantry and refrigerator after each guest and removes out of date items or items that would spoil. When we have guests arriving the same day the previous guests departed, common usable food items will be left for the use of the arriving guest. When a guest has left them behind, I always find the cold beverages a special treat after a long day travelling!

We do our best to provide basic condiments and spices so our guests do not have to buy quantities they do not use. This is our second home and we welcome our guests to use the recreational equipment in the condo. Our manager is happy to provide housekeeping services and will provide a fee schedule upon request. For the guests who stay for longer visits we provide basic cleaning supplies. Guests may also find shampoo, soap, suntan lotion etc., which has been left by previous guests and deemed usable by our manager. Over the years our guests have told us countless times and in our guest book of their appreciation for the items in the condo that they did not have to buy or rent to enjoy their visit.

Years ago as a young family we found condo rental to better meet our needs than staying in a hotel or motel. The economy, freedom and opportunity to prepare our own meals better met our needs than the daily housekeeping of a Hotel/Motel. Condos are not for everyone and services vary greatly. Homeaway/VRBO has done an excellent job in helping owners provide as much information as possible about their condo and giving potential guests all of the information they need to find lodging that meets their needs and their budget. Our wish is for all of our guests to have the best time possible while visiting the island paradise of Maui.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. I agree that when the trade winds stop and the Kona winds, if you can call it winds take over, it gets a little warm for this northlander. I will ask Anne to move the tower fans from the front room back to the bedroom. We seem to have had more Kona winds this year than I remember in the past!. Glad you had a good time. Keep us in mind in the future.

A little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Kihei. The owners were exceptionally kind and accommodating. How often can you stay at a place that comes with sweet beach gear? Not to mention spices and all the stuff you need to grill up some delicious dinners and enjoy them on the beach.
Just across the street from the condos is a nice beach, where in the winter you can watch the humpback whales spouting and breaching. Good food near by, for those who don't want to cook, including a great natural food store.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. Kihei Akahi is one of the secrets of the Kihei area. We are always pleased when our guests enjoy our home away from home. We hope you will return for another sunshine stay.
