About Jay Likness Hawaii Tax ID #W88539732-01

owners-Jay and Judy likness, Jay and Judy have a cabinet shop and construction company in the Seattle area. We like to share with guests who love Maui as we do. Most of our Guests come back year after year.

Jay Likness Hawaii Tax ID #W88539732-01 purchased this condo in 2003

Why Jay Likness Hawaii Tax ID #W88539732-01 chose Kihei

Both of us love the Ocean and warm weather. We first came to the Kihei Akahi in 1988 with other family that owned a place there. We enjoyed it so much we have been coming back year after year. When C-602 became available we felt it was the chance of a lifetime, not only are the 2 bedroom 2 baths rare, we believe ours is the best location in the complex! We can check out beach conditions from the lani, whale watch , and every night see a spectacular sunset from our own unit!

What makes this condo unique

Everything is near by, we usually have a jog or walk in the morning on the beach. There is good snorkeling right in front as well an excellent sandy beach that goes for miles! We often walk the beach all the way to the Resort hotels Grand Wialea, 4 seasons , Marriot, and occasionally stop in at one of the hotel restaurants for a drink or food. We are also avid Tennis players and we play almost daily at the complex.

This is a great condo with a gorgeous view and fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this amazing condo. We have stayed in Maui several times at this resort and this condo is our favorite. It was well stocked with everything you need for a fantastic vacation. Be sure to check out Taco Tuesdays right around the corner at Fred's. We would definitely book here again.

Awesome X 3

  • 5 of 5

We have spent some time in Kihei Akahi condos previously but this unit is exceptional. It is so well equipped with everything you need for your stay. It is tastefully decorated, super clean and the views from the lanai and even from inside cannot be beat. The best condo yet and hopefully it will be available for our next trip.

We really enjoyed our stay. Your place had everything we could want or need. It was very comfortable. There are beach towels, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, even a beach bag to carry everything. Although you don't have to carry it too far, there is a great beach right across the street. There is a crosswalk right at the entrance to the condo driveway. The location was awesome. The best view and sunsets from the lanai. Lots of good restaurants / shops within walking distance.

The kitchen has everything you need from dishes to pots / pans / blender / electric frying pan and even condiments and spices. It was really great and cost effective to be able to cook our own meals instead of having to eat at restaurants all the time. It really was a home away from home.

Jay and Judy were really wonderful to deal with. Very helpful and responsive to any questions we had.

We will definitely come back to your place when we come back to Maui

We have never used VRBO before and we were extremely pleased with this property. Jay and Judy were great to deal with. The property is exactly as described, an immaculate updated 2 bedroom condo with ample room for the 4 people. The interior was clean, with new appliances, an extremely well stocked pantry and an abundance of beach necessities. The property has a beautiful view of Kamaole II beach and Molokini can be seen clearly off in the distance. We spent many evenings socializing on the Lanai watching the sunset and looking out at the waves. The 2 pools and barbecues are kept very clean. Kihei Akahi is situated directly across from Kameole II and a short walk to Kameole III which are very kid friendly beaches with calm waves. No air conditioning, but no need as all the windows open up which allow the trade winds to blow through the condo cooling it off nicely.I would not hesitate at all in recommending this property to my friends and family.

Lovely time in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for two weeks and had a very memorable time. The location was great, right across from the beach. I could see whales from the lanai almost every day. The kitchen had everything and really enjoyed the blender for fresh fruit smoothies.

I would definitely recommend this vacation rental.
