Tropical Paradise in Maui - "Palekaiko" at Kihei Akahi :-)

Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 10 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

We are thrilled to present 'Palekaiko' at Kihei Akahi - our little piece of 'paradise' on Maui!

Our condo is a wonderful place where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets, warm trade winds and fabulous white sandy beaches only steps from your door. Enjoy your morning Kona coffee on our ground-floor walk-out lanai surrounded by lush tropical plants and manicured lawns.

The Kihei Akahi is a quiet and secure complex that has two swimming pools and barbeque areas and a tennis court. Centrally located, this beautifully landscaped complex is located in sunny South Kihei where only six to eight inches of rain a year and a consistent 75-90 degrees (25-32 degrees Celsius) almost assuring you of a warm, relaxing sunny vacation.

Our family-friendly condo is fully equipped. Furnishings in the master bedroom are Pier 1 and the second bedroom has a custom murphy bed and queen-sized bed with a matching headboard. The master ensuite is freshly remodelled! In an effort to make it easier for people with mobility issues to manage, we removed the wall between the vanity & toilet/shower area, we installed a wider door, a 'comfort' height toilet and a low profile shower tray. The guest bathroom has a bathtub, a must for families with little ones!

The kitchen has GE kitchen appliances, and we also installed a full-sized Bosch washer and dryer, and a Friedrich wall-mounted split-system air conditioning unit. Living and dining room furnishings are by Ratana, providing Palekaiko with an 'Island' flavour. We no longer have Hawaiian-style louvered windows, we have energy-efficient, double-glazed Low-E windows that keep our suite cooler and quieter. A La-Z-Boy patio set on the lanai bring the comfort outside. We also supply beach toys, beach chairs, beach towels, mats and even a cooler to make your beach experience the best!

From the moment we arrived for our 14 night stay it felt like home from home. I am sure we will be back to Akahi for more vacations in the future it really is situated in the perfect spot in Kihei. Aloha and thankyou to Della and Keith.

Hawaian Breeze

  • 5 of 5

Kihei Akahi was easy to get to from the airport and push button entry at condo was very convenient. The condo on ground floor was close to the pool with very clean great BBQs, which we only used once. The unit had everything you needed from beach towels, boogies boards, snorkel and coolers to plastic dishes and wine glasses for picnic or pool area. It's nice to have two washrooms with great showers. (Especially with 5 people). Air con kept the living room nice and cool but made the balcony quite hot so we would turn if off if we wanted to sit outside.

Palekaiko is a great spot to stay for travelling anywhere on the island and coming back to relax with a coktail on the beach in time for the gorgeous sunset. We took off to Hana for a night, wish we would have stayed a couple nights. Lots of adventure and hiking areas.

I advise getting a guide book and planning the activities you'd like to experience. There is so much to do.

Also so many amazing restaurants. We loved 3's, 5palms, cafe au lait, monkey pods, Gannons.

Cafe des amis in Paia is great. Da Fish Truck in Hana was very tasty. So many great spots.

Della was very easy to get hold of and very pleasant.

Yes we would definelty come back here Our three daughters came to meet us and it worked out fine.

We all had the best holiday in paradise.

The flowers and their perfume fragrant smell amazed us everyday.

We Love Kehei Akahi

  • 5 of 5

The condo, the grounds, and Kameole II were the perfect location for us and our family on our anniversary. The goal was to grab some towels and hit the beach. We accomplished that every day. Thanks to Della for the personal touch which made our visit even more memorable. See you ASAP as we are already planning the next visit.

Another excellent adventure

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time using these facilities and every time it is an improvement! The upgrade to the bed in the second bedroom was great. We have made suggestions for upgrades and everyone of them has been implemented and more. We ran into a couple of minor issues when there and after a call to the management company they were quickly attended to. The location is fantastic and extra supplies such as beach chairs, boogie boards etc have always been available. Dealing with the owners is truly a pleasure so we highly recommend the use of these accommodations. We look very much forward to our next trip here.

Owner's Response: We're thrilled to hear you liked Palekaiko's improvements and it was once again a comfortable place to relax after a busy day of exploring our beautiful island! I hope you were able to cross a few things off your "activity wish list", but I bet you added a few for your next visit?! Mahalo nui loa!

An exceptional stay and introduction to Kihei!

  • 5 of 5

When choosing a condo I always look into what the condo provides, location, and hopefully there is feedback about the owners. With this review, I hope to provide insightful information about all three.

This was our first family vacation to Hawaii and more specifically Kihei. I can confidently say this condo sets you up for complete success. The size of the condo was perfect for our family stay (wife and two kids). We found everything for beach success, from chairs to snorkels to sand toys. For us - this was a big deal, as we didn't have to head out and buy anything extra. Being on ground level, just steps to the pool and bbq's is perfect. We cooked dinner in, eight of the nine nights we were there.

The location of the condo is perfect - and we totally lucked out on this, as it was our first visit to Kihei. It's a two minute walk to Kamaole Beach 2. A great beach! And not much further to Kamaole Beach 1 or 3. On my last day I saw four turtles snorkelling in the morning (Kam 2), and while watching the sunset, we saw another three lounging by the beach! On top of the beaches in Kihei, it's just a short drive to Wailea - where you can find a bunch of other great beaches.

For me, however, the part of renting this condo that is above and beyond all experiences is the communication Della, the owner, had with me. She answered all my emails and phone call promptly. I felt she was just as excited about our trip to Kihei as we were! Della provided insight on everything - car rentals, directions. It felt very comforting renting the unit for our stay.

Truthfully, I just hope everyone enjoys Kihei as much as we did. Renting this condo is a great start!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had such a wonderful introduction to Hawaii! We really do feel that Maui, especially Kihei, is the perfect spot for families. Kamaole Beach II is great for all ages, and I was so excited to hear of your encounter with the turtles in the waters just off our beach - so cool! Mahalo and we hope you keep us in mind for a future visit :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was very pleased with the accommodations. The condo is comfortable, spacious, well stocked and felt like home away from home! Residents, other guests and onsite manager are very friendly and kind. I could easily live there full time! I would definitely recommend the condo to anyone and would stay there again. Activities: Highly recommend zip lining! Had a blast!
