Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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.

We have ONE pet friendly condo at another complex about a 5 minute drive North of the Kihei Akahi Resort. If you have a pet please let me know.

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.

About Kathy McCartney

Picture Beautiful Kamaole Beach Park II sunset! Enjoy this wonderful beach and stay in our beautiful ocean view condo directly across the street at The popular Kihei Akahi Resort.

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

Why Kathy McCartney chose Maui

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Kathy,

Thank you so much from my sisters and me for the use of your condo C618 the last couple of weeks. It is hard to believe how fast the time has flown. I apologize that we were not able to get together. Most of our time was spent at the pool, and shopping was at a minimum. It was a total relaxation vacation. Sandy is flying out tonight, and Del and I are leaving tomorrow.

The treat basket and fresh flowers that greeted us when we arrived was very special and so much appreciated. We can't thank you enough for your kind gesture. We enjoyed everything!!!

Coming back to the condo was like coming back home. We have enjoyed every minute here. We also made a couple of friends. We are hoping to see them again next year. Also, we look forward to seeing you again. We will let you know when we choose our time to come back.

Have a great year. We have made memories to last until our next visit.

Great Stay, Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

Kihei Akahi unit C618 - October 2016

We are back in Canada after having a great stay in Maui. We really appreciated the nice touches found around the unit – the reno’d bath and kitchen, great art work everywhere, comfortable furniture, great king bed, even the pineapple desk lamps were a nice touch. Location is great being in the middle of Kihei, walking distance to most things.

Everything is in the unit that you might need for a stay - beach umbrella, towels and chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, and a raft of other items.

We had an issue with a loud A/C unit. As soon as we mentioned it to Kathy, it was replaced the following day! That's great service. Being up on the 6th floor (yes, there is an elevator), there was usually a breeze that was able to keep the unit pleasant. In the summer, the A/C probably wouldn't be able to keep the unit and especially the bedroom from being quite warm. For us in October, it was pleasant to warm. There are extra fans that can be used to keep cooler.

Wifi, was limited in the unit, however this was also fixed fast when we were supplied with another router to connect to.

Kathy is obviously a great host and kept us happy. Communication was great and she even allowed us to check out late at no charge.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

I rented this unit for my parents (Seniors) during their recent visit and it met all of their expectations. The unit is exactly as depicted in the photos. It is quiet, it has a beautiful view of the property grounds & the ocean from the balcony. You will get a wonderful cross breeze thru the unit during the trade-winds. It has elevator access, a convenient rubbish chute, and is close to both pool & barbecue areas. The unit is located across the street from Kam II beach, a short walk to restaurants, shopping, general, & grocery stores. It's furnished with beach amenities (chairs, coolers, snorkel gear) for your use. This is truly a perfect rental for singles, couples, or a small family.

Akahi Review

  • 4 of 5

The place is in a great location, Its right across from a public beach and park. You can walk in the morning to the health food store or smothie bar. We liked going to the pool aswell because the kids liked swimming there. The apt was great. there were lots of snacks and tree biggest dealats left by the owners to keep us happy for a while. In the closet there was all the stuff you would need at the beach, beach chairs , umbrella, boogie boards. my only complaint on the apt was that above the closet by the window, it was covered in a brown dust. probably from the sugarcane burning. Otherwise the grounds were spotless and everything was easy.

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

  • 4 of 5

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.
