FRESHLY RENOVATED CORNER STUDIO WITH OCEAN VIEW

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bathroom, Studio With Full Kitchen And Laundry

Welcome to our tastefully renovated and decorated Kihei Akahi studio D-301, that we affectionately call

“Our Pearl”.

Kihei Akahi is located directly across from three of South Maui’s most beautiful beaches, Kamaole I, II and III. All three of the Kamaole beaches have lifeguards, showers and restroom facilities and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding/body surfing, walking, playing volleyball or just hanging out and enjoying the warm sun, perfect water and watching the magnificent whales from late December to early May.

The Kihei Akahi complex has beautifully maintained grounds, two pools, bbq grills, a tennis court and is centrally located within walking distance to several fine restaurants, shopping and activity centers. Our condo is located at the back of the complex away from the road noise and has a private feeling with great views.

From our private lanai you have the benefit of 180 degree views of ocean, the island of Lanai, stunning sunsets, West Maui Mountains, sun and moon rises and the leeward slopes of the mighty Haleakala.

Being a corner unit, the additional side window provides good light, views of Haleakala and a wonderful breeze that flows through our condo.

You will have the most comfortable and relaxed stay in our condo. We have updated our unit with new decor and furnishings: a dining table that can seat 4, a Beautyrest World Class Brentford Luxury Firm Queen Size Bed (as of 12/21/2013), a queen size sofa sleeper that has a memory foam mattress, a comfy chair, a lanai set with chairs that recline and a beautiful custom made tv armoire that has 2 closets and drawers for your clothes as well as extra storage space for your luggage when you unpack and settle in.

For your indoor entertainment, we have a 39' hdtv and a dvd player. We also have an am/fm alarm clock that is a charging station for your i-pod or i-phone.

There is a hanging pot rack with a full set of cookware and the gas range is great to cook on with a microwave/fan/light above it. In addition to a coffee maker (we provide the filters), there is a tea pot, a blender, a toaster oven and a spice rack complete with spices. The refrigerator is full size and we are the only studio in Kihei Akahi that has a dishwasher.

When you head out to the beach there are 2 Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs for you to use, a Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, beach towels and a small playmate cooler. There are also plastic cups, plates and utensils for you to take to the beach or the pool, as well as to use in the condo.

In 2002 we vacationed on Maui with our two sons, fell in love with Maui and moved to Kihei the following year. Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20+ years we truly appreciated the sunny days and perfect ocean water and after 10 years of living here we still love it and never tire of the beautiful sunsets and rainbows.

Becky Thorman purchased this condo in 2013

Kihei Akahi is close to everything that one needs to relax on Maui. Three of the most beautiful beaches (Kamaole I, II and III) are across the street. There are restaurants, shopping and activity centers within walking distance. The grounds of the Kihei Akahi are well maintained, are filled with lovely tropical flowers, plumeria trees, breadfruit trees, banana trees, palm and monkey pod trees. The birds that also call Kihei Akahi their home will sing to you throughout the day!

AN ABSOLUTE GEM

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been more pleased with our rental. The room is much more spacious than we imagined, and the amenities were head and shoulders above the other units.

We enjoyed having the beach right across the street, and appreciated being in the building the farthest off the road. It was the perfect balance of convenience and privacy.

The owners were very attentive, and truly wanted us to have a pleasant stay.

There was a communal car wash area near the parking space that provided quick access for rinsing off things, as well as a rinsing station closer to the main office.

The unit had tons of storage. We never suffered the fate of tripping on an open suitcase or stumbling over a beach chair.

The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped. More so than most rentals.

There is a nice breeze that comes through int he evening, and that really helped keep things cool. A word of advice: make sure to bring a paperweight of some sort on to the balcony with your "light" reading. My fiancee lost a menu to Bistro 808 to the winds, and when he later retrieved it he found it with a few crosswords that suffered the same fate from someone else's lanai.

The views are stunning, the owners wonderful, the unit charming, and I wish we had not had to leave.

This place is an absolute gem, and I am so glad we we stayed here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo and that you appreciated all it has to offer. The saying, “Good things come in small packages”, is definitely true for D-301. We put a lot of thought into designing our small space and in stocking it with amenities to make our guests’ stay as relaxed and as comfortable as possible. It is always nice to hear that we were successful. Perhaps we should add a paperweight of some kind, as you are right about the afternoon winds. We hope that when you visit Maui again, you will choose to stay in our condo again. Until next time …
With Aloha, Becky and Mark

EXCELLENT VALUE

  • 5 of 5
Condo was exactly like the photos, small but arranged very nicely. Being a corner unit made it very private and had ocean view from lanai. In a great location and had everything we needed. Will probably stay here again in the future.

SUPERB LOCATION AND WELL EQUIPPED

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a great trip and enjoyable stay at this condo. Loved the balcony view, the easy walking to beach & shops, the available boogie boards, chairs, noodles and beach mats. This place had it all in a well designed and decorated studio condo layout. Very clean and new space with many thoughtful details to ensure you have anything you could need. Would certainly recommend this unit to anyone.

GREAT STUDIO

We had a wonderful stay at this well designed and equipped studio. We came many times to the Kihei Akahi and this is one of the nicest ones. Everything was perfect, pictures show the studio exactly like it is. We highly recommend this beautiful get a way. The owners are very much dedicated to do everything for their guests.

GREAT CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo for 5 weeks and everything about it was wonderful. It was a very tastefully decorated condo not over done. The use of space and storage was well thought out and organized. The flat screen TV was housed in a built in storage unit which had space for hanging your clothes as well as lots of drawer space. Everything you would need to make your holiday stay a great one was provided, all the little extras were there ie picnic gear, clips, storage bags, beach gear, tennis rackets. The linens and towels were really nice, nearly new, the bed was super comfortable. There were lots of dishes, cutlery, glasses and we especially liked the dishwasher (is the only studio in Kihei Akahi that has one). Loved the walk in shower and the washer and dryer which was very handy to have. We spent many a morning enjoying a coffee on the lanai, watching the boats and the whales and just looking at the beauty that is Maui. The view from the right side of the lanai allows you to see sunrise over Haleakala. We loved the birds who make their home in the trees below the lanai and the gecko's and chameleons who sit in the sun on the walkways. Kihei Akahi has beautiful lush grounds, well kept, we were even able to enjoy a fresh banana right off the tree. The condo is within walking distance to a number of good restaurants and shopping. We walked every evening and felt very safe doing so. The condo is also just across the street from Kam 11 which is a great beach for snorkelling and boogie boarding. I highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We are so glad that you had such a great vacation on Maui and that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and found everything you needed. When Mark told me that you guys saw a whale from our lanai I was so jealous, but, after you had checked out we went back to the condo and when I was on the lanai I got to see one too!!! They are so awesome and I was so excited! We see them all the time from the beach when its whale season, but from our own lanai ... how cool is that!! It was great that you got to paddle with the Kihei Canoe Club. We never knew, until you told us, that on Tuesdays and Thursdays visitors can paddle with the Club. I am going to leave a link to their website in my condo info-book, so that other guests of ours can check it out. So glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again.

OCEAN VIEW ELEGANCE

  • 5 of 5
Elegance without extravagance

Location trumps all the pluses of this delicious condo. Perched on the 3rd floor at the shaded quiet end of the secluded 'D' building is the ocean view sanctuary. This studio waits to embrace the solo traveler or couple. It is tropics savvy with its tile floors, silent ceiling fan, and cross ventilation. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the lanai greeting Haleakala, the visually spectacular dormant volcano whose name means "House of the Sun". It is rare to find accommodations that give you an ocean view and a view of Haleakala plus those sweet West Maui Mountains. Everything offered at this condo was top notch and functioned admirably. The condo's cleanliness was superb. All photos and descriptions were accurate if a bit understated. The AC is rarely needed but the low fan setting makes a lovely white noise for sleeping in since this condo has excellent polarized double pane windows allowing the hushing of the tropical bird morning serenade. The stairs are easy and close to the condo...I prefer them for getting to and from the reserved parking space, pool and bar b q...plus the exercise is good for us. The elevators are convenient, quick, and clean.

I have used VRBO for over a decade and seek out these vacation rentals that have that vital quality of hosts who genuinely care about their visitors experience. Becky and Mark embody the clarity, professionalism and kindness that make them a joy to work with.

Buy your fresh fish at Eskimo Candy to Bar B Q on the poolside gas grills. Also, save money by buying your grass fed steaks at Whole Foods and searing them poolside and take them back to your private lanai for a treat of a dinner. Local farmers markets are the freshest way to experience Maui foods! When you go out to eat go straight to 808 Bistro tucked in behind Fred's next door to the Kihei Akahi...their pork tenderloin and all their Ahi and Mahi Mahi recipes are spectacular. Their soups (yes, soup I the warm tropics!) are so luscious I want to lick the bowl ;-). Oh, their breakfasts are wonderful, too.

Use Pacific Whale Foundation for all your snorkel, whale watch and dinner cruises. They are convenient, well priced and truly care about these oceans and their inhabitants.

The snorkeling off Kam II, the beach across the street, was fun. I also like Makenna Landing for its diverse underwater reef system, sea turtles and scenery. Maluaka Beach is great for snorkeling with sea turtles...neat fish, too.
