About Michael Gach
We live less than a mile from our Kihei Kai Nani condo and Kihei Akahi studio -- so we can personally keep it in excellent condition. We love Maui and our condos enable us to share the Aloha spirit with others. We especially LOVE the ocean. Ever since we first met and swam in synch with each other, we knew a place like Maui was meant for us. As a family, we share these gorgeous beaches with our 7 year old and enjoy every time. We find it fulfilling to share special places, beaches, and the best places to eat with our guests -- since we know the area like the palm of our hand. Kihei beaches are the best, and have fabulous weather. There is no where else on earth we'd rather be. We hope you'll enjoy all that Hawaii on your next vacation.

Michael Gach purchased this Studio in 2002
Why Michael Gach chose Kihei
We chose to buy this special vacation rental because of its air flow, and privacy. Plus this condo is so close to three gorgeous beaches and a great variety of restaurants. You can easily save hundreds of dollars by not renting a car, since our condo is in such a fabulous location. We'll let you know how to get picked up at the airport and be driven to the door -- its ideal. I asked a condo management company that I trusted what vacation rental property was most popular and was rated highest by most guests. I feel fortunate to be guided to have a unit at Kihei Akahi, especially being in the private location of our studio. Over 90% of the units face over other condos, parking lots, or roof tops - however our unit is completely private. If you choose our private studio your be with the palms, birds, and tropical flowers.

I had an absolute wonderful time and I wish I could've stayed longer! :-D
We are thrilled you loved our cozy condo and its privacy. It's an ideal place to stay especially for couples and one person. We like to make it especially nice for our guests to enjoy the beauty of Maui.
Wonderful comfortable condo. Amazing communication!
Michael and his property manager Hope are the most communicative and hospitable hosts you could wish for. All the details were clearly spelled out and checking in was a breeze. The condo is clean and very well equipped. My daughter loved the pools and access to the beach is unparalleled. There are great restaurants in Kihei, and gorgeous beaches steps away. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Many thanks!
We so appreciate your excellent review. Our small private studio is really very special and we've made it that way. The five to ten minute walk to 3 beautiful sandy beaches and the convenience of walking to several great restaurants is due to its great location. You'll have access to two fabulous pools, a tennis court and our kitchen is fully equipped. We have wifi included and we continue to upgrade furnishings and the decor because we care about offering a great place to stay on Maui.
You feel the sense of "aloha" the moment you arrive in this lovely condo. The birds singing outside the lanai and being surrounded by gorgeous flowering trees make you feel like you are the only ones in a tropical paradise. The lanai is a perfect place to have your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.
Communication with the property host (Hope Marie) was prompt, super friendly and easy. She made sure our stay in Maui had everything we needed. There was a wonderful welcome gift in the fridge when we arrived (chocolates, bottled water, juice) - truly unexpected and very much appreciated. When I asked her if there was a chance of getting a blender, she had it brought to the condo right away with a surprise bag of taffy. Michael and Barbara (the owners) were also very kind and helped make our stay in the condo perfect in every way.
We just arrived back to Canada this morning. I already miss Maui, the lanai with the singing birds, the sandy beaches, the tropical breezes, the feeling of aloha...
Thank you Michael and Barbara, and Hope Marie for making us feel welcomed and appreciated.
I can't say enough good things.
Wonderful Maui Studio
Lovely stay on Maui in this wonderful studio! Great for a couple or two people. Well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Owners and condo host were terrific, great follow up with any questions and very attentive.
Our clean condo is in a great location, walking distance to three beautiful beaches; a great place to stay for wonderful vacation to Maui.
We had a great time!
We loved our stay! We have decided to move there!
The studio condo was adorable and had everything we needed! The kitchen was adequately stocked with utensils-pots pans-coffee make-blender-toaster etc. plus a decent variety of cooking seasonings. When we arrived we found 3 complimentary water bottles, 3 complimentary tropical sodas, 2 complimentary ice creams (freezer) and a delicious box of complimentary chocolates/toffees in the fridge, we found these simple gifts a delightful touch and unnecessary extras to make us feel comfortable and at home.
We were able to cook a large breakfast daily. We also cooked fresh fish, boiled crab legs, seared steak, tacos and much more with ease in the cute little kitchen.
The unit is extremely private feeling, nicely tucked away in the back. The deck/lanai opens to a view of beautiful tropical foliage. We enjoyed seeing a family of brilliantly marked geckos (our three year old was thrilled and named them all) each morning while sipping coffee on the deck/lanai.
The queen size bed was decent, not the most comfortable its a bit broken down and caused us to roll towards one side or another, could use an upgrade, but served well enough. We didn't use the pull out sofa bed, our year old slept on the sofa covered with an extra sheet.
There are two pools as part of the complex, both nice, however no hot tub.
Kamaole Beach is just across the street. It was perfect for a family setting, fairly calm waves, long shallow entry, lots of room to play. We took are son out on a body board (provided with the unit, as well as two chairs, beach towels umbrella, extra sunscreen first aid kit etc.) as he lay tummy down on the board in the clear water he was able to see TURTLES!!! Beautiful sea turtles swimming under and around us!!! It was amazing and wonderful! It was wonderful to have such a nice beach so close.
We went to many different beaches and enjoyed the diversity from one beach to another. We drove to Hana! We enjoyed the scenic drive and beautiful waterfalls along the way.
We took a whale watching tour and saw humpbacks! Even a mother and baby very near our catamaran!
We drove to the top of Haleakala and took pictures of the view and volcano crater!
The owner, Michael, is extremely kind, he worked with us and was patient while trying to get payment to process!
We needed the blender for our son's yogurt avocado smoothies, it broke! In less than 2 hours, Hope (host/manager) had a new one delivered! Amazing service!
What a great review of our cozy condo. We appreciate all of your excellent feedback and intend to purchase a new mattress for our private studio. So glad you enjoyed so many aspects of our condo and being in Maui.
Property made our stay the most amazing getaway!
The property is located in what I believe to be the best place to stay in Maui (after having explored the island for a week). It’s a great home base from which to frequent beautiful sunrises and sunsets with a 3 minute walked to the beach, and easy access to all parts of the island. Favorite parts of the experience included frequenting pre-vacation the recommendations from the property owner, coffee on the secluded and lush balcony in the morning, central location from which any part of the island is accessible, and the thoughtful check ins from the property team (complete with chocolates and salt water taffy). Would definitely recommend!
Your excellent review fulfills why we brought, remodeled, and continue to upgrade our private studio. The condo comes with wifi, a washer/dryer in the unit, 2 swimming pools, a tennis court, fully equipped small kitchen, lots of natural light and fresh air from its louvered windows and plenty of privacy. When you are out on our small patio, you won't see anyone, and no one will see you.
Most beautiful beaches in the world, ocean coastline, swimming, finest golfing, scenic day trips like to the rain forest, snorkeling trips, upcountry land, fabulous wind surfing, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach.
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating. Across from three gorgeous beaches.
