Our sixth floor D building condo has just been completely redecorated, with an all new Kitchen and all new appliances. The cabinets are all new as of April 2012, and new granite counter tops.
The living room couch is new, as are the end tables, table lamps, dining table and four chairs, and the coffee table.
We have added pull down shades in the living room area, that pull down from the top, and doesn't block the 180 degree view of the ocean. The windows have all been replaced with clear glass panes.
The view from the sixth floor of Kihei Akahi is the best in all of South Maui. Nothing is higher, or gives the fantastic 180 degree view that we have.
We have added a desk that opens, to allow for those who want or need to have a work space, to set up, and have a view outside.
We have a high speed internet connection, that is much faster than the 'Hospitality' internet offered by the AOAO, and WIFI, so that devises that don't have or need a network connection, can be operated in the condo. We also have toll free telephone service to the USA and CANADA. A real plus for our Canadian friends, and visitors.
The bathroom vanity is all new, with a granite counter top, and new vanity lighting.
The Kihei Akahi has washers and dryers in each of the condos, so no need to go out to do laundry. But, please, use low suds soap in limited quantities, to avoid problems in the floors and units below our top floor condo. They will certainly appreciate not having a backup problem caused by our guests.
The bedroom has a very comfortable Queen size bed, and new table lamps that are identical to the table lamps in the living room.
2014 is showing availability, but the High Season fills up early and fast. Please consult the calendar for availability, for dates you might be interested in.
We, as I'm sure most VRBO renters for Kihei Akahi, get requests as far as two (2) and three (3) years into the future, so it is best to reserve a unit as soon as plans can be made.
Tourism is up on Maui, as well as all the Hawaiian Islands. Kihei Akahi was as full as I have seen it in many years. Yes, rates are increasing too. So it is best to book early, and avoid ongoing increases in condo/room rates, regardless whether you book our unit, or some other condo/complex.
It is difficult to book a guest, on very short notice, and equally difficult to book a 'Back to Back', where a new guest wishes to arrive on the same day that a departing guest still has the unit, on their departure day. So our policy is to consider each of those on an individual basis.
We also prefer a minimum of a seven (7) night stay.
PLEASE NOTE- Clarification of the Event Pricing. I saw no way to add just a nightly rate, only the total for the dates of the event. So, the Nightly Rate of $175.00 will apply for any portion of the Event Pricing Dates.
We are from West Central Illinois, and enjoy Maui 2 to 4 times a year.
We were staying in Kihei Akahi, D Building, when this unit came on the market, late in 2011. We previously owned a unit in D Building for over 13 years, but sold it in 2006. We thought that this unit, on the top floor of the D Building, while needing a lot of up-grading, provided us with an opportunity to own, again, in the best building in all of South Maui.
The best view of the ocean, whales, and boating than any other complex is South Maui.
