Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Top floor, D Building, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

With whale-watching, sunsets, and swaying palm trees in between, this top-floor, one-bedroom unit has one of the best views in South Kihei. Located at the back of the complex, it is high up and has no street noise--only the rhythm of the surf washing up on beautiful Kamaole II Beach, just in front of the complex and a quick walk down the lushly landscaped drive. Safe for kids and novice swimmers, and one of only three life-guarded swimming beaches in Kihei, this pristine stretch of sand is backed by a park with restrooms and showers, and cradled by rocky points on either side where snorkelers may swim with tropical fish and sea turtles.

The unit's spectacular Western view encompasses the West Maui mountains, the islands of Lanai, Kahoolawe and Molokini, and continues on southward to the palms and golf courses of Wailea. Sunset is the event of the day year-around; from the comfortable swivel chairs at the bistro table on the lanai you will enjoy a clear view of the sun sinking into the Pacific, as well as the sounds of the conch-blowers and the whisper of the palm fronds as evening falls.

But here's the best part! The comfortable unit has recently undergone a high-end update, including solid maple cabinets, slab granite countertops with tile backsplash, new appliances, new furniture, carpets and decor, a queen Beautyrest bed in the bedroom plus queen sofa sleeper in the living room. Also included are a completely outfitted gourmet kitchen, computer desk with complimentary high-speed wireless internet access for your laptop, and free long distance calling to the Mainland and Canada. There's a flat screen TV/DVD, plus stereo and CD player, and even original artwork.

Beach chairs and beach towels, coolers and other fun amenities are provided for your convenience, as are all necessary linens and table decor.

Less than one block away is a wide selection of restaurants, shops, and small grocery stores--no need to get in your car several times a day. Whether you are looking for romance, adventure, or just relaxation, you will love the affordability, the location, and the tropical ambiance of this superb accommodation.

About Jeanne

That's me welcoming my grandaughter on her second visit to Maui, an island with a good bit of my family's history intertwined. When my folks started coming to Hawaii in the 'fifties, they visited each island, then narrowed it to each location on Maui, and ended up in Kihei, just the best! Best access, best beaches, best weather, and nicest people. So when I decided I had to have a place of my own, they had done all the work for me! I have loved this location and my sweet condo with its large view for nearly 20 years now, remodeled it twice, and have a harder time every year dragging myself back to Seattle where my job is. But if I never left, I wouldn't be able to share it with all the wonderful guests I've welcomed over the years. I hope you will join them!

Jeanne purchased this condo in 1991

Why Jeanne chose Maui

It's simply 'no ka oi' - the best! Cleanest ocean water on Maui (no agriculture upcountry), sweetest outlook due west with outlying islands, best whale-watching, and safest swimming beaches in Kihei. Two-block walk to family restaurants and shops, easy access to Kahului and airport.

What makes this condo unique

I love to be outdoors--whether it's hiking, swimming, suntanning, or watching sunsets. I hike across Haleakala every year (to make sure I can still do it!) and tell my guests about other wonderful places to explore in my guest book. I think there can't be more lovely nor safer swimming beaches than the Kamaole Beaches--no rocks, gentle surf, water as clear as glass and as caressing as silk. And I make new friends down around the pool and barbecue grills every time I visit, but I can always retreat to the peaceful surroundings of my top-floor eyrie to watch the sunset and comtemplate the beauty of this magical island.

Great location, great view and wonderful facility management

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Maui celebrating out 40th anniversary. Our unit had a great view and overall was fine, however, air conditioning should be a mandatory requirement in the late summer months. It was very hot and humid in our unit. We had friends staying in another unit in the same complex and they had their air on in the evening and could at least get a decent night's sleep. Not so in our unit. Their condo had been updated three years ago and was in much better condition than ours (broken toilet seat and the fan blades fell out of the ceiling fan). Fortunately we spent most of our time out and about, but it was uncomfortably hot and humid 95% of the time in the townhouse.

Owner's Response: Aloha and our apologies for the two broken items. My husband and I had just checked out of the unit 4 days before your arrival and neither the fan nor the toilet seat were broken. Such things can happen anytime however, and all you would need to do, as explained in your Welcome Letter and on the flyer stand in the unit, was to immediately call the management company to rectify the problems. August is undeniably the warmest month on Maui. We chose to install the roll-down sunshade and supply extra portable fans as electric costs in Hawaii are the highest in the nation and an AC can add up to $10/day to the electric bill, defeating our effort to keep our nightly rates reasonable.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This property could not have been better. Great location. Great view. Every amenity you can think of was available, plus more. There was everything you would need in the kitchen, bath, and bedroom. There was a large supply of things for the beach or pool. Plenty of fans. I don't know why anyone would stay in a hotel when you can have a great place like this.

Great view, nice decor, very convenient

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this unit. The 180 degree ocean view was fantastic, we could watch the whales, the passing boats, and the glorious sunset right from the unit. The owners stocked the unit with everything we needed, including beach chairs, umbrella, and lots of linens and kitchenware. We stayed 12 nights. The interior was recently redone, with nice counters, carpet and upholstery all spotless. The location right across from Kam II beach was great, but we also explored lots of other beaches both north & south of this condo. Easy to walk to shops & places to eat & drink. Only surprise was no air conditioning, but luckily the cross breeze and fans made it perfectly comfortable for December.

Excellent Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two week stay in Unit D610 at the Kihei Akahi in Kihei. The unit met all our needs and offered some of the most fantastic sunset views every evening looking out over the water on the balcony. It was also a very short walk to a nice large sandy beach, Kamaole Beach Park II. You can also walk a short distance to several restaurants. Look forward to returning someday.
