ALOHA and Welcome to our Island Paradise! Maui No Ka Oi! This C-601 corner studio unit is on the TOP FLOOR of Kihei Akahi right across from the beautiful Kamaole Beach II, in very sunny South Kihei. You have Privacy and Security of a Top Floor and Corner unit with direct Front Facing Ocean views! Once you walk in, you are embraced by the fragrant tropical breeze and the gorgeus views of blue Pacific with the views of Molokini, Lanai, and Kahoolawe spread out in front of you. Kihei Akahi is beautifully landscaped and has 28 varieties of native flowers and plants that only enhance your total island experience - truly a UNIQUE tropical resort !

Not only does this corner Penthouse studio unit offer the most INCREDIBLE front facing ocean views, along with Security and Privacy, it was completely remodeled in 2012. Granite countertops, travertine flooring thoughout, crown molding, a walk-in shower, new top of the line kitchen stainless steel appliances, new patio furniture on the lanai, new kitchenware, a ceiling fan above the bed, a/c, new full size washer/dryer, and new lighting - everything you need to make your stay as comfortable and luxurious as possible, as well as FREE Wi-Fi.

As the condo is only steps away from the beach, you can enjoy your day surfing, snorkeling, sunbathing, swimming - or just relaxing at the pool or beach! Let the Island spirit into your heart where it will find a home. After a busy day at the beach, by the pool, or practicing yoga at a class nearby, you can spend a restful evening on the lanai, sipping tropical drinks and watching the ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE sunset, or enjoy the variety of nightlife as we are within walking distance to many shops, bars and restaurants. South Kihei has everything! You can even see the whales during Whale Watching season from our lanai. At night, just let go completely and relax in the new Queen size bed with a comfortable new posturepedic mattress (not a Murphy bed)--- let yourself be at complete ease and your mind and body totally relax while listening to the ocean waves gently rock you to sleep.

This condo has been recently remodeled and the spirit and essence of Hawaii is evident throughout for you to be fully part of the island lifestyle. We have it fully stocked, with everything you could need to make your Maui experience as carefree and easy as possible. Enjoy watching TV or DVD's on a brand new 32 inch flatscreen TV with a library of DVD's after a busy day at the beach, swimming, playing tennis or golfing at one of the many nearby highly rated golf courses, or bike down the slope of Mt. Haleakala. If you like to shop and enjoy fine dining, the 'Shops at Wailea' are only minutes away. Maui offers something for everyone! Many restaurants are within walking distance as an added convenience.

To make your visit as RELAXING and ENJOYABLE as possible, the kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, a blender, microwave, new 12 cup coffee maker, toaster, and a new gas oven/range; there is even a hairdryer in the bathroom and we also have a brand new full size washer/dryer inside the unit.

Fantastic view and location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the condo was nice. We felt there could have been a couple of minor improvements to make it even better (having to empty the a/c drip pan was a nuisance, and the kitchen utensils could be better). Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a huge plus, as well as having beach chairs, etc. right there to use!

Incredible View Near Wonderful Beaches

  • 5 of 5

The owners are absolutely delightful to work with and so kind! The lanai with its breathtaking ocean/sunset view was our favorite, as was the location. We were near wonderful beaches, as well as walking distance to great restaurants. Our favorites were Café O'Lei, Threes' Bar and Grill, and 808 Bistro. A very spacious shower in the condo was also great! Mahalo for a lovely visit to Maui and your hospitality!

Fantastic Studio with an awesome view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 16 nights in Feb/Mar 2017. We absolutely loved it. For 2 people, it is perfect! It has everything you need for the beach including comfortable beach chairs, coolers, umbrella, beach mats, snorkel gear and plenty of beach towels. The washer and dryer are just great for keeping laundry done up and you can definitely pack light. A starter pack of laundry detergent is given at checkin and you can buy more for cheap at the office. The little kitchen is so great with full size appliances. The fridge has both filtered water and an ice maker - so very handy. The queen bed is super comfy and we hardly used the air conditioner as the breezes kept the condo nice and cool. The bathroom shower is nice and big and there are plenty of bath towels and wash cloths. The view from this condo is simply amazing and we enjoyed many sunsets from the lanai. The location is perfect and close to many eating places and the gorgeous beach is only a short walk away. The 2 pools at the complex are very nice with plenty of chairs available. Nice big barbecues are available in the pool areas with tables and chairs too. You can take your beverages down to the pool area, a nice touch - just no glass allowed in pool area. Suzy is so great to deal with and she responds to any questions in a very timely manner. We definitely hope to be back to this charming studio in the future!

great location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived after dark, and when we awoke in the morning, the ocean view from the bed was fantastic. The studio was within walking distance to several eateries which was great since the traffic was such that we didn't want to drive. Spent an afternoon on the beach across the street, and walked a lot. The condo itself was well stocked and the washer/dryer came in handy. My husband was getting a little claustrophobic in a small place, but for 4 nights it was doable. Thanks Suzi!
