Why Suzi Riley chose Maui

We absolutely love this unique property because of the outstanding views, great location, and privacy and security of being a top floor corner unit; the views are really Amazing! The new appliances, upgraded features and luxurious interior all add to the total island lifestyle. The sunsets are so awesome AND you don't even have to leave the comfort of your lanai to see them.

My boyfriend and I stayed here 6 nights and couldnt be happier! Super central to all the great beaches and restaurants in the area. The view from the lanai was incredible! We enjoyed many sunsets and sunrises during our stay. Just a couple minute walk to beautiful Kamaole Beach 2.. doesn't get much better than that! Very convenient to have chairs, umbrella, coolers, snorkel gear. Condo also has all the cooking utensils needed to hang out and make breakfast in the morning. Suzi and Brian were very welcoming and easy to communicate with, truly have a special condo here in Kihei. We can't wait to stay here again!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We used the condo from 9/12/17 to 9/16/17. The condo accurately matched the listing photos and the owners took special care to answer any questions on Maui activities/sights and to contact them with any questions or issues. We were quite pleased with our stay here; in addition to the excellent condo, the location is great on the South Shore... beach was across the street, several other beaches with 10/15 minutes and easy drive to volcano crater, Road to Hana, plus we could walk to several restaurants, shops etc. A nice bonus was the management of the condo complex; they let us store our luggage in their office on our last day on Maui and to use the showers/restrooms at the pool in the afternoon before we headed to the airport. Staying in their condo was an excellent value.

If you wanna see the ocean this is the place to be

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for 1 or 2 persons. Its pretty close to the beach (actually you just have to cross the street). The street has a lot of traffic but you dont hear the traffic noise, even not on the lanai. The Kihei Akahi is actually private, so everything is pretty quit there.

The condo has well equipped kitchen (would be enough for a whole company) and you can also BBQ outside at the pool (there is also a fridge, kitchen sideboard). The bed is comfortable and the fans were enough for some coolness. You can also find some stuff for the beach and the walk in shower was really nice.

When you check in you get some detergent, your parking permit and lots of informations about Kihei Akahi. Bars, cafes, restaurants are all around the corner, so you dont have to use the car to get some food or drinks.

Kihei is central, so if you plan trips to Hana, Haleakala and West-Maui its perfect. Kihei is full of condos, but this 6th floor made this one special and the owners are also communicative, so go for it

A perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

Aside from gorgeous sunset views, and great location across from beach and beside 808 Bistro and Fred's, in no order: hot water is really hot and lots of it & good flow rate, refrigerator is large (especially for a studio suite) with French doors, cold & the freezer freezes; gas stove, all the utensils, pots, plates you could want; lots of storage/hanging space, towels etc, in suite clothes washer & dryer; all the beach items you could want except surf board: boogie boards, snorkels, goggles, flippers, umbrella, cabana thing, super Tommy Bahama beach chairs, 3 coolers - all gratis to make your stay at Suzi & Bryan's completely hassle free. Spacious shower (& the hot water as above). Air con worked pretty well - we did stay at the hottest time of the year and 2 other fans; beautiful sand swimming beach across the street. Sun sets every evening n front of your lanai (balcony). Decent tv, lots of channels, DVD player. And parking! Oh, and the 2 pools & BBQs! Suzi & Bryan happy to help any way they can but don't interfere.

Negatives: it's a studio, great for couples or singles but a little small for + baby or child. No bathtub for those who require such. We had a wonderful stay and will try to stay in this unit again when back again!

Exactly as pictured and the sunsets from the lanai are fabulous. It's a small apartment but it had everything we needed! We had a great time on our honeymoon and am so glad we stayed here.
