Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Modernized 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom walkout with convertable sofa. Sleeps 2-4.

Come feel the spirit of Aloha in our Maui paradise!!

Our 1 bedroom 1 bathroom walk-out condo has just undergone a thorough renovation, completed for the 2013 season!

Building D, or, the 'Haleakala' building, is set back on the far east end of the Kihei Akahi property. This makes it the quietest of the 4 buildings, and the orientation of it allows the fragrant afternoon trade winds to cool the unit without ever having to turn on the air conditioning.

Inside we have a bathroom that has been made slightly larger by unifying the original 2-room design.

It has been completely redone with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, 16 inch travertine, and accessorized in nickel finishes by Kohler and American Standard.

The kitchen footprint was widened and then visually opened up to the living room, granting us the unique ability to install a Blanco double basin granite sink. We are one of just a small handful of units at the Akahi to offer this--a small luxury one realizes only in its absence.

The spacious kitchen offers all the comforts and luxuries of home: high quality cabinetry, under cabinet and pendant lighting, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, garbeurator, coffee maker, grinder, blender, and every necessity one might need to piece together an exotic island meal.

Other amenities include a brand new washer and dryer, 2 ceiling fans, hair dryer, alarm clock, and a concrete-wall mounted personal safe.

But since no one comes to Maui to be inside, you are one sliding door from the springy grass, palm trees, plumerias, hibiscus and other exotic scents of the property gardens. Our lanai is wide open to all that Maui and the Kihei Akahi has to offer....just one sliding door from a relaxing tropical paradise.

We really fell in love with this unit because of the oversized feel of the lanai. Because you aren't contained by a railing, you enjoy a free, open, and truly one-with-the-island feel--which is what we really believe being on Maui is all about.

So, whether it's heading back and forth to the pool or BBQ, stretching out your legs during an outdoor meal, or, my personal favorite, simply walking barefoot in the lush grass beyond it, this lanai, and all that lies beyond it, is a big reason why we find such inner calm and peace being here. A few strides to Kamaole II and every sunset can be enjoyed with the sounds of the waves lapping on shore, and the soft sand underfoot.

So, beyond the sliding door, and just a brief walk through the lush Akahi garden, lies the soft sand and warm water of Kamaole II beach. For your outdoor use and enjoyment, we have provided colored beach towels, snorkel sets, 2 boogie boards, Maui guide books, driving maps, hiking guides, beach chairs, coolers, bags, a backpack, ice packs, and kids beach toys.

Be it hiking, biking, snorkeling, shopping, golfing, playing tennis, swimming, sunbathing, or sightseeing....after a day experiencing what the island has to offer, you can come back to relax under the moonlight on the lanai, swim in the pool under the stars, sit down in front of our 42 inch LCD TV, or simply retire to the queen sized Sealy Posturepedic in the bedroom.

Maui isn't a place people only visit once. Come stay in our Kihei Akahi condo and fall in love with an island and a lifestyle that will have you dreaming of your next trip before you've even left.

About Chris Yarish

Chris and Kristin were both born and raised in the prairies of Western Canada. We hold professional positions in Calgary and really hope to retire to Maui someday. After 3 consecutive trips to Maui, we got married on Po'olenalena Beach in 2011, and when we returned in 2012, it marked our first stay, not only as a married couple, but also owners of a beautiful condo in paradise.

Chris Yarish purchased this condo in 2012

Why Chris Yarish chose Kihei

Kristin and I have made 3 trips to Maui in the same number of years. Those trips always had us anchored in South Kihei, and we always felt at home there. South Kihei has always been consistent...lots of sun and almost no rain.

The Kihei Akahi property has everything we could ever want--pools, tennis, gas BBQ's, hospitable front desk service, grassy garden area, exotic scents in the air--all a stone's throw from the soft sand and blue-green Pacific Ocean.

What makes this condo unique

We have learned that the true Maui experience comes from being within in it, not sitting above it. That's why we love the walk-out so much. The floral scents are richer, the wildlife more abundant, and the unfenced lanai gives you a sense of openness and freedom.

We love this south-west facing walk-out unit because there are palm trees to gaze up at, springy green grass to walk in, and you can use all the Akahi amenities without having to use the stairs or the elevator.

We are still shocked that we've never had to turn on the air conditioner. Please take advantage of the security screen door at the entrance and screen at the lanai to generate an environmentally friendly cooling system. The a/c is always there, but we have been pleasantly surprised with how effective the natural breeze can be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha! We have had an amazing stay and appreciate all of the little touches in your home to ensure we are well taken care of. We can't wait to come back! You seem to have a friendly one footed neighbor (a bird) that comes by the patio pecking at the window daily to greet us who is super friendly and talkative.

Mahalo

A great spot for your Maui vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this unit for a week in September and truly enjoyed our time there; centrally located in Kihei, the unit is only a few minutes walk from the beach and some restaurants. The condo has all the amenities you could possibly need for a perfect beach getaway (washer and dryer, beach towels, snorkelling gear, a cooler to bring a lunch to the beach, thermos cups for your morning coffee before the Road to Hana, etc.) The owners, Chris and his wife, really thought about all the small details that makes this unit stand out from the bunch. Chris was very helpful throughout the whole booking process, answering quickly to our emails and even sent us recommendations on things to do in Maui! The unit was very clean when we checked in, is fully renovated and is exactly as described and as it appears on the photos. We are fully recommending this condo, it is great value for money!

AMAZING

  • 4 of 5
First time to Hawaii with my family. This owner was so accommodating easy to communicate with and made interactions smooth and straight forward.

Beautiful apartment! I am very picky with the rooms I choose they have to be clean and modern and his appt was just that. The description is 100% accurate it's equipped with everything one could need, close to the beach, Dennys, few shops and food places.

It was an easy drive from the airport about 30 mins and even the drive is beautiful. We would return to this apartment its one of the best in Kihei.

Super location for any type of vacation.

  • 5 of 5
It doesn't matter whether you want an active vacation or just want to kick back and relax, this condo provides an excellent location for everyone. Chris made everything seamless when it came time to book and took the time to provide some recommendations for all the things we had planned. This was our first Maui vacation and it was excellent thanks in no small part to this condo, it's amenities and a responsive owner.
We initially thought we would like a unit with an ocean view and were going to pass on this ground floor unit. My personal opinion now that I have stayed here is the convenience of leaving and returning from the lanai door is worth giving up an ocean view. We walked down to the beach for our ocean and sunset views. We cooked a lot of meals at the barbeque's located poolside and it was easy access back and forth. It is far enough away from the pool to provide privacy. The condo had all the amenities required to relax, cook, play at the beach...etc. You will not be sorry renting this upgraded condo.
There is more to say and all of it good. This unit is in building D which is the furthest back from the road making it very quiet. It is short walk to get down to the beaches and restaurants. Wifi works great. Free long distance back to Canada was nice to have but we never used it once.
Other reviewers mentioned that you may not need a car but I certainly enjoyed having one for exploring the island. You can walk a long way up and down South Kihei Road to access shopping and restaurants but it was nice to drive to many sights as well as make an occasional Costco run, cruise with the top down (convertible), drive the Road to Hana, visit Haleakala (we did the sunrise!!), check out the shops in Lahaina, check out Big Beach to the south....etc.
Bottom line is you shouldn't have any apprehension renting in Kihei and this complex (Kihei Akahi) and in particular this unit are fantastic.

We had the pleasure of staying at Chris and Kristen's unit this year. This is our second trip to Mauai and our 2nd stay at the Kihei Akaki.
We loved the updated unit. You will find everything you need in the kitchen if you stay in and do your own cooking.
It is fantastic having a ground floor unit as you can take your patio chairs onto the lawn if you want to get more sun etc. A lock on the sliding glass door is excellent so you can leave from patio instead of walking around to the front door.
The bed was too comfortable as we slept in every day.
It is great to have TWO couches, as most units only have one couch and a chair so it is nice to both to have a chance to stretch out and relax.

We had friends at the Maui Banyon next door and other friends at the Pacific Shores and they were not overly happy with their unit's but impressed with ours.
The louvered windows provide fresh air in the unit and a great air flow with the ceiling fans on. Air conditioning is nice to have available but we only used it one night for about 30 minutes to cool down after a hot day out....

We will not hesitate at all to stay in this unit again or this unit is booked, the Kihei Akahi is a great property. It is so well taken care of and clean. Pools are a bit cold, but maybe that is because it is so hot outside, but certainly refreshing....

A few recomendations we have for the area if you like to venture out to eat~~ Make a reservation where ever you decide to go.
Cafe O'lei is very good, medium price but loud and busy.
Monkey Pod - Amazing food, medium price, great service,
5 Palms - has good food and AMAZING view, over priced for what you get.
Shave Ice at Rainbow Mall - they have a Maui Sunrise bagel with cream cheese and tomato...really yummy.
Cinnamon Buns - Under Denny's if you like sweets - there are amazing!

Maui Custom Bathing Suits (In Rainbow Mall) will make a CUSTOM Bathing suit for women within 2-3 days, great quality and a great price for a custom suit. You can design any style you like. The Owner (Kiko) is so sweet and amazing. I get one each time I come.

Chris was amazing to deal with, very prompt with any questions we had right from booking including getting an email to ensure we made it home safe.
Chris and Kristen are great hosts.
We are already working with Chris about booking our next stay !!!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the Kihei Akahi condo for a week in March for a relaxing getaway. The condo was beautifully redone, clean, and well stocked with everything you would need to enjoy a day at the beach or just hanging out on the property. Chris was very helpful with lots of tips and ideas for my trip. As I didn't rent a car, the condo was in a great location with easy access to the beach and all amenities were either a short walk or a bus ride away. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. Thanks again for all of your help :)

ONE OF THE VERY BEST

  • 5 of 5
We are well seasoned Maui visitors and have stayed at Kihei Akahi for all but one of our trips in the last twenty years. We have finally found a condo we plan to come back to every year.

The ground floor location makes it so easy to step outside and enjoy the feel of Maui. We can only echo what other guests have stated. We had everything we needed and a lot we did not expect to find.

Pride of ownership is one thing that facilitates a positive rental experience and Chris and Kristin have it in spades.
