Aloha and welcome to sunny paradise in popular south Maui at the Kihei Akahi Resort! Experience for yourself why our beautiful property with ocean and mountain views attracts repeat visitors year after year.

This beautiful unit is located on the 6th/top floor of building C. From the 6th floor lanai, take in spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Mount Haleakala, Kaho'olawe Island, Molokini Crater, tropical gardens, and glowing sunset skies. Experience the annual migration of the humpback whales playing with their young close to shore.

Directly across the street from the Kihei Akahi Resort is one of Maui’s best beach parks, Kamaole Beach Park II. The sand is white and fine like powder, and the beautiful Pacific blue is inviting all year round.

Enjoy your days relaxing on the beach or partake in the many water activities such as snorkeling, boogie boarding, kayaking, and more. End your day in paradise with a peaceful sunset stroll on the expanse of sandy beach alongside the warm, inviting sea.

We have several other condos available for large parties who want to have privacy and spread out, but still be close by. Contact me for details.

There is a lot to do and all within walking distance: great shopping, restaurants, live entertainment, and world class golfing. The island of Maui has much to offer; experience the creative and soothing magic for yourself, and enjoy your stay.

Comments from guests who have stayed in my personal condo C618:

Hi Kathy, I just wanted to write to thank you for such wonderful accommodations in Kihei. You are a thoughtful and considerate person. There was nothing you hadn’t thought of to make our stay more pleasant. The view was beautiful, the condo was homey and the driving incredible. Thank you so very much. We will be back possibly next year, but more probably ’06.

I have already recommended several others to contact you. I also wanted to commend you once more on your artwork. It is lovely and now that I have seen its inspiration, I can appreciate it even more. Once again thank you. Sandra and Chad, Pasadena, MD.

'Aloha Kathy! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo...very nicely decorated and a wonderful location:) We had a great time in Maui and will definitely be back again someday. We kept very busy seeing many places and spending the last few days snorkeling a lot and enjoying the vacation.

Kathy McCartney is the owner of MauiVision Rentals. MauiVision became a reality and a business starting with Ms. McCartney's personal condo C618. The idea to start her own business came about while working for her friends Sharene and Harrison Klein of Hawaii-Holiday. Her friends were in need of a vacation and Kathy volunteered to house sit their beautiful Big Island home and business office. The Klein's have been a guiding force in helping Kathy get started with her business.

'MauiVision is a business I love because I get to share the Aloha Spirit, the beauty of the land, and talk story with people from around the world. It is nice to know that we can contribute to someone's Hawaiian vacation experience in a positive way. We love to hear back from our happy guests.'

Kathy used to live on the island of Oahu with her US Navy family when she was a young girl. Her family later moved to Southern California. She knew that one day she would return to Hawaii, the place she fell in love with long ago. Taking a leap of faith she purchased her Maui condo June 2002 this was the beginning of fulfilling her prophecy of once again returning to Hawaii soil.

Kathy is an artist who is inspired by the beauty of the islands. She captures the beauty she experiences with oil paint on canvas. 'Painting the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands is another way for me to feel close to this special place I call home. I moved to Maui full-time year 2012 and paint the Hawaiian landscape and people.

Kathy McCartney purchased this condo in 2002

When I began my search for Maui home I kept repeating to myself location, location location! The realtor I worked with at the time told me how wonderful the Kihei Akahi Resort is in terms of attracting repeat visitors. So after viewing several properties over the Internet I bought my home away from home not having viewed it in person. I took a big chance to follow my dream to Maui and two months after the purchase, I did finally get a chance to visit my new home. I was nervous and also very happy about my decision.

The location is wonderful like the realtor and others I interviewed expressed. We are directly across the street from desirable Kamaole Beach Park II and other great beaches that connect to ours. Everything is nearby and within walking distance of our condo: beach, restaurants, health food store, yoga studio, entertainment, shopping etc.

My particular property is a top floor unit away from the elevators and road so it is in a nice quiet section of the complex. As the years have gone I have made many new friends in Kihei. Our home owners association is one of the best. Our property grounds are well maintained and cared for. The staff is wonderful and faithful and many of them have been working at the Kihei Akahi for years.

My condo is not just a vacation rental it is our home away from home. We have many repeat visitors who feel this is a beautiful place to vacation because it is not cold and sterile like a hotel room, it is warm and inviting.

C618 my home, is located on the top floor of building C at the Kihei Akahi Resort. Here you will enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Mount Haleakala, Kaho'olawe Island, Molokini Crater, tropical gardens, and glowing sunset skies. Not only will you experience more peace and quiet on the upper floor but we get a nice breeze off the ocean. We provide our guests with free Wi-Fi Internet cable access for their laptops. This beautiful home has recently been updated with new textured ceilings/walls, new paint and Crown Molding; tropical furniture; island style artwork and Asian accent pieces. The décor has many rich colors sure to please the eye. Kathy's home has new tile floors throughout the condo, new cabinetry and counter tops. This unit has new AC (June 08); new side by side refrigerator ice maker with water dispenser.

If my home is not available I help rent other properties at the Kihei Akahi Resort and a home in Haiku, and several beautiful properties in Ka’anapalai.

Dear Kathy,

I just wanted to say thank you for allowing my wife and I to rent your condo for our wedding and honeymoon. We really enjoyed the condo, the resort and its location on Maui. Good luck to your son enlisting in the Air Force and please thank him for his decision to serve our great nation. I hope he enjoys it as much as I did.

Best wishes,

Erik and Nicole S.

Thrilled with accommodations

  • Submitted: Feb 20, 2013

Jan 2013 – Unit C618 - Hi, Kathy, I've been meaning to write since we got back....but you know how it goes, playing catch-up! We both want to tell you how much we enjoyed your Kihei condo. Of course, I had the advantage of having seen the online photos ahead of time and described it to June, but she was absolutely thrilled with the accommodations. I had a hard time prying her loose from the lanai which she enjoyed so much. The interior was lovely and so well-appointed, just as described. The sleeper sofa was comfortable for me & she loved having the bedroom. The information you provided ahead of time about local eateries, beaches, etc. was also so very helpful. We stayed close to home except for our Hana Road day and a few short excursions. The concierge service that arranged the Valley Isles tour was great, and the trip itself a delight. We had companionable minibus-mates and both got to enjoy the lovely views along the way. So glad I didn't drive it! I only cooked one meal - I had to have fresh ono & let June know how delicious it was. The kitchen was so nice and with all the amenities I needed (except the ingredients, of course!) The only thing we needed that wasn't in the condo was a nightlight by the sink. Since we're both at the age where a few trips to the loo in the night are the norm, we both decided a little light would help. Found a bargain one our first day out & left it in the room for others who might appreciate it. Absolutely everything else we could have desired was already there. Thanks again for all your pre-trip communications and for maintaining such a beautiful property. Your paintings are gorgeous!

Wow

November/December 2012 - Unit C618 - Kathy, Aloha! Wow, what a fabulous 'new' kitchen!! We love it. New stove, micro, dishwasher, sink, taps...And a new vanity in the bathroom with great lighting! Once again, we have had a wonderful time in our home away from home!! We thank you! Golfing this trip has been the most reasonable - Pukalani was $66 for 2 and Elle Aire was $65 for 2. We again rented bikes with all gear in Haiku. Drove to top of Haleakala rode down to Kula. Had pizza and beer then went back up and repeated and then rode to Haiku about 30 miles in all! Out of this world! Going through lavender fields etc. Vegetation very lush! Great Aloha Friday gatherings at lower pool. Wonderful walks, swimming, and snorkeling. Restaurants we recommend Five Palms, Cafe au lea, Cafe on the Greens just a few favorites! Once again a wonderful time was had at our home away from home! Merry Christmas! See you in February. Mahalo Kathy - Dianne and Harley, Vancouver.

Wonderful Vacation

  • Submitted: Dec 4, 2012

November 2012 – Unit D204 - Hi Kathy, We got back from Maui last Thursday morning, what a wonderful trip we had. Weather was perfect and the Freeland condo was just lovely. Also thank you so much for the welcoming basket of goodies, I loved it all, especially the pineapple and the Maui potato chips! I have since e mailed Frito Lay for locations to buy the potato chips, especially the onion ones but no luck. I put in Chicago zip codes, Cleveland, We have a daughter who lives there, but no where to find Maui potato chips. I guess only in Hawaii! Once again, thank you so much for all your help in finding the right condo for us. We will always have wonderful memories. My husband just through making up a picture album with all the photos he took, turned out real nice. Dolores M.

Fabulous Location Across from Kam II Beach, Nice Condo, Nice Complex

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 28, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
November 2012 - Unit C617. The location is great, directly across the beach from Kam II, 5 minute drive to Wailea, and no more than 15 minutes from all of the Wailea and Makena beaches. The condo is very nice and stocked with everything one needs to cook and stay for a week or more in Kihei. Very nice view from the lanai of the ocean. Great value for the nightly rate. Our only dislike was the futon couch. While is fits the decor nicely, it's not at all comfortable and I can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be to sleep on. I would love to see it replaced with a comfy sleeper couch or recliner couch.

Owner's Response: Aloha Julie

Thank you for writing. I will share this review with the owner of C617 and ask her to upgrade to sofa bed. I hope that she will do so.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay overall and I hope to accommodate you again.

Kathy

Your lovely condo yesterday (unit C618)

  • Submitted: May 21, 2012

February 2012 – Unit C618 - Kathy, We just got back from your lovely condo yesterday. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the gift basket--it was very thoughtful and I LOVE pineapple. Thanks so much for sharing your home. We hadn't been to Maui before but we are in love with it. We did so many fun things (well, hiking and going to the beach, but that's what we like) while we were there. Your condo was so centrally located and well-equipped... as soon as we thought "I wonder if there is a...?" we would look and there it would be. Also, the convenience of such a delightful beach right across the street was just wonderful. Before the end of our second day we were planning our next trip. But as I looked through your guest book a fear stole over me... you typically have tenants for the whole month of February! And indeed, I've just checked your calendar on Mauivision and the whole month of February 2013 is booked! :( However, I see that your company also manages C617 next door. Is it available?

Great location, beautiful condo, and hassle-free and VERY helpful service from Kathy

  • Submitted: Oct 24, 2011
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
My husband and I's flight was the day after we had an interstate move and 5 days after he defended his dissertation. As you can imagine, we were burned out! For our accommodations, I didn't want to worry about anything: I wanted a clean, well-maintained place with a great location that was not a hassle to book. If this is what you're looking for, you should contact Kathy to a book a VRBO!
I, like other reviewers, was nervous about using VRBO; I initially thought it would be much more safe and comfortable using an online vendor. My experience with Kathy, however, felt much more secure and personal. I wrote her an email, and in less than 24 hours she called me back. It was so refreshing to do business with something that wasn't automated! She was very professional, answered all my questions, provided photos and a listing of the VRBO. What I also appreciate is that there were no hidden/surprise costs, she broke every single cent down so there was no surprise.
The condo itself is VERY clean, with everything needed to cook meals, towels, television, and wireless. It was also tastefully decorated, and the bed was fairly comfortable. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Aloha Pia and Greg,

Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to send a positive review. I appreciate it. I'm so glad we could help you two relax by providing you a condo to stay in unit C619.

I hope to help you two again!
