Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A quarter-mile-long crescent of safe, lifeguarded, sandy beach with gentle surf, flanked by dramatic rocky points teeming with tropical fish and turtles--where is this slice of paradise? Right across the street from your stylish and spacious 2-bedroom/2-bath condo! No need to load the family in the car: just grab the cooler, beach chairs and beach towels(all provided in your unit)and walk to some of the best swimming and snorkeling on Maui! Kamaole II Beach is one of only three lifeguarded, designated swimming beaches in Kihei; if you want to do more than gaze at the ocean from a distance, this is the place to be!

Unlike many rental units, the owners frequently stay here themselves, resulting in personal touches and thoughtful upgrades that will make you feel like an honored house guest. With a recent remodel, this very spacious unit is on the first floor (one up from ground floor) of the coveted D Building--an end unit with whispering palm fronds surrounding it and a peekaboo Western ocean view, plus exceptional privacy and quiet at the far end of the building.

Newer carpeting and linens in the bedrooms (plus a new pillow top queen mattress) are complemented by ceramic tile floors throughout the rest of the unit and designer paint set off by white millwork and six-panel interior doors. A peninsula kitchen with custom cherry cabinetry and all new stainless steel appliances is charmingly open to the living area, making entertaining irresistible, especially with the inclusion of the over-sized lanai open on two sides to the tropical breezes. The two bathrooms were luxuriously updated in 2011 to include designer tile and granite countertops. Four ceiling fans in bedrooms and living area keep those breezes moving, but there's also an air conditioner if needed. Trendy halogen track lights add drama in the kitchen and gracious entry hall. In-unit washer/dryer keeps beachwear easily clean, and there is convenient access to the reserved parking just outside the door.

Newer twin beds in the second bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room add ample room for an extended family or two or three couples...room to sleep six if desired. A desk and cable hookup plus wi-fi offer space for your laptop connection to the complimentary high-speed internet service; flat-screen TV, DVD/VCR player and ipod docking station are provided for your additional pleasure...that is, if you can tear yourself away from the romantic tropical landscaping, two pools with barbecue grills, tennis court, and the five-minute stroll down to fabulous Kamaole II Beach and the nearby shops and restaurants.

About Jeanne Erdahl

That's me, with one of the grandchildren that instigated my purchase of a second, 2-bedrooom unit at Kihei Akahi...now my kids and grandkids can be there when I am, and I can cheer on their efforts at swimming across the pool and building the best sandcastle on the beach! My Mom and Dad started coming to Maui in the fifties, and, when I got to the point where I couldn't live without my Maui fix, I discovered they had already done all the work for me in identifying the best island and best beaches, and they are right here in Kihei!

Jeanne Erdahl purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jeanne Erdahl chose Maui

In all senses, it's just the best! The Kamaole Beaches are stellar (and have been voted as best beaches in the world by several different publications) because they are safe, lifeguarded, close to snorkeling, and superb for swimming. I can walk to the library, good grocery stores, many restaurants and shops-- they're all within a mile of Kihei Akahi. It's also close to upscale Wailea with its many golf courses and shops, but much more economical. Access into 'town' (Kahului/Wailuku) is even easier now with a new four-lane highway all the way...not an all-day trip as it can be from the Kaanapali/Kapalua area. And the micro climate? Let me just say that when it's raining on most of the rest of Maui, Kihei is usually still in the sunshine!

What makes this condo unique

I love to be outdoors, and as a rest-of-the-year resident of the Seattle area, I also crave sunshine, sunsets, swimming and hiking. When winter rolls around in Washington, it seems like the sun doesn't rise until 9 and is setting again by 3 in the afternoon. That's just not enough daylight! When I'm in Kihei, I slow down, live every minute, glory in the birdsong, watch the whales cavort, become transfixed by the rhythm of the waves, smile at the little kids romping on the beach...and never even think of turning on the TV.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Maui and the condo was perfect. We appreciated the beach chairs, noodles, beach towels and coolers, all of which we used daily! The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking and the washer and dryer totally made our whole trip much easier. Thank you for allowing us to check in early, as well.



We will definitely stay with you again in the future.

Maui Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the condo! It was perfect for the 4 of us for the week we spent in Maui. The location is perfect. A very quick walk to the beach, shopping and connecting highways to other parts of the island. The condo was furnished well for all of our needs. We hope to be able to come stay again in the near future.

Fantastic place for a fun vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Loved this place so much and it was well equipped for two adults and three kids. It was nice and clean and has all the extra that we didn't have to run out and buy, like beach towels, chairs and coolers! Right across the street from the beach and stores and restaurants were right there too, which was perfect.

Just be careful of the maintenance guy, he will steal your bike tire if you park it in the wrong spot. Bike racks were not in easy location to find and once we did we had to carry our bikes up the stairs.

Condo was perfect for me and my four kids.

  • 5 of 5

South Maui was very good to us, the condo is walking distance to the beach and one of the best in Maui in my opinion. They have a lifeguard on duty and everything is walking distance. shopping and restaurants are close by, try 808 Bistro. We will definitely be going back to this condo. Neighbors were friendly and welcoming. you will love this place. Aloha...

Convenient location and a wonderful condominium!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Hawaii and the condo perfectly met our family's needs. We appreciated the proximity to beaches and restaurants; everything was within walking distance. The condo unit was well maintained, clean, and had everything we could possibly need (plus books, games, and other amenities). The complex's pools and grounds were well maintained, and as John T. noted, groundskeepers were working everyday. We spent most of our "beach time" at the beach right across the street from the condo, swimming, enjoying sunsets, and locating sea life (including sea turtles). Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

A wonderful condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Maui and we loved the condo. We took out three adult children and were all comfortable in the space. It was well cared for, decorated nicely and fully equipped with everything we needed to have a great vacation. The grounds and amenities were very well cared for and the pools were very nice. Every day we noticed groundskeepers and maintenance staff painting, cleaning etc. They would even go out of their way to help if they saw we were looking for something or needed help carrying items. We loved the location because we were within walking distance of shops, great food (loved the baja fish tacos at Fred's and breakfast at the Kihei Cafe) and of course the beach. Nearly every evening we made sure to walk the short distance to the beach to catch the sunsets and occasionally saw turtles swimming near the beach. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a large, clean and well appointed condo in a great location. Thanks for sharing with us.
