About Gurukar S Khalsa

My wife and I live an hour north of San Francisco near the coast on a family farm. We have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren so far (our son and grandson are pictured on the surfboard just off Kamaole Beach across the street from the condo). I am a general contractor and my wife works at our local community clinic. She also grows a variety of fruit which she makes into jam and sells to local stores. We make it down to Kihei 1 to 3 times a year and have had some great family vacations.

Gurukar S Khalsa purchased this condo in 2003

Why Gurukar S Khalsa chose Kihei

We first visited Maui on our honeymoon in 1974 and have enjoyed going back over the years. When looking to buy a condo we rented a unit in Kihei Akahi and decided it was the best complex for us - with convenient access to a family-friendly beach, beautiful grounds, and walking distance to great restaurants and shopping.

a nice inroduction

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we had used a service like this where you are renting a unit from an owner. We were a bit nervous at first about sending money to someone we didn't know, but the owner was very good to us especially since we weren't able to get the money to him in the required 30 days previous to arrival. The unit itself was clean, and well outfitted, loved the stove, A/C a definite plus. Walkways to the doors could use some lighting.

We will definitely use VRBO again

Unit not well stocked

  • 3 of 5

This unit was clean and nicely updated, but it was not well stocked with even the basics needed for a week's stay. There were only 2 beach towels, 4 bath towels, no bath mat, and no linens at all for the pull-out sofa in the living room. Because we needed to use the pull-out sofa, this required a call to the rental agent to have the sheets delivered. There were also not enough paper towels, toilet paper, or garbage bags.

It was also strange that the windows in the bedroom could not be opened, which made for some uncomfortable sleeping in that room.

DUST everywhere!!!!

  • 2 of 5

All of the reviews made this place seem like it would be a gem to stay in. Surprisingly I was not impressed with the cleanliness of the unit :-( it was extremely dusty, we were all congested and stuffy every day when we woke up and sneezing from all the dust!! Also three of the lamps had burnt out bulbs in them and I didn't get there until after 10pm and I didn't know why they weren't working until the next morning when I unscrew one and found it to be burnt out with a load of dust on it. The dust is what bothered us most. I mean we are paying a cleaning fee for that right? I didn't come on vacation to dust the whole place. .. just extremely disappointed with the cleanliness. Even the cooler that was provided was filthy inside!!!! We stayed away from the room as much as possible, except for when we had to sleep and of course we woke up sneezing and all congested. This dusty issue really needs to be addressed!!!!

The condo was great. Had every thing needed just like home. The location was perfect, lots of shops and resturants in walking distance and across from the beach. I would definately stay there again.

Condo Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo for a week. It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. I thought it was very kind of the owner to provide us with beach items such as the beach umbrella, chairs, and boogie boards. We had a blast at the beach!!! The internet access worked great, bed was very comfortable, and the overall stay was wonderful.

One thing that was hard to get use to was waking up to the birds. I am a light sleeper and we were unable to shut the windows. When I went out to the balcony the guest below was was throwing out tons and tons of bird seed. I am not sure if there are any rules or guidelines about feeding the birds. I think if we were able to shut the windows I would have slept better.

Also, the guest book was not located in a accessible place. It was in a cabinet. When I looked through the book, it mentioned something about watering the plants and feeding the fish but there were none?? I think the guest book may need to be updated a little. It did provide some very helpful suggestions on things to do though! I would have never known about the swamp meet at the college on Saturdays if I had not opened the guest book! He had a lot of fun there and got some very cool gifts for family and friends.

Thank you again for allowing us to stay at this wonderful condo. We will make sure to recommend it to anyone thinking about vacationing in Maui.

Kamaole Beach Park II
Car: recommended

Kihei Akahi is ideally situated across the street from Kamaole Beach Park II and near restaurants and shopping in south Kihei. The complex is located on the edge of the commercial zone, so it is very convenient to walk to restaurants and shopping yet the condo is usually quiet and private. Kamaole Beach Park II is one of three beach parks in south Kihei that are all connected with walking paths perfect for a morning or sunset stroll. Each of these beaches offer soft white sand, gentle waves for swimming or boogie boarding, and small reefs at each end for snorkeling.
