Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This wonderful Kihei Akahi, 1 bedroom / 1 bath, ocean view condo has been remodeled and professionally decorated in a Hawaiian style with artwork from local artists. You'll find everything you need to relax and immerse yourself in the Aloha spirit of Maui.

The condo is perfect for special people like you who enjoy the luxury of having that first cup of coffee sitting on the lanai, watching the changing colors of the sky and ocean, smelling the scent of plumeria and listening to the birds sing. Or enjoy a Maui sunset sipping a Mai Tai before a romantic moonlight walk on the beach.

A fully equipped kitchen allows you to make your favorite meals if you choose to cook or you can walk a short distance to some of the best restaurants and shops in Kihei. Wailea is just a five minute drive for shopping and restaurants too.

Located on the 4th floor of the C building in Kihei Akahi, just 100 yards from the soft sands and warm waters of Kamaole Beach II, where you can relax on the beach, snorkel, boogie board or body surf. The wonderful tropical breeze naturally cools the condo when the windows are open. And it's not near the elevator so you'll enjoy a quiet restful sleep.

The unit has beach towels, mats, umbrella, chairs and cooler for your use. If you enjoy walking, a path along the beach connects to the Wailea resort area. There is an activity desk at the complex to help you schedule activities such as luau's, Molokini trips, etc. Since I live close-by, I have a guest book with some of my favorite Maui activities and restaurants, snorkeling spots, and beaches too.

The Kihei Akahi tennis court opens at 7:00am so you can get in that early morning game. Golf is available at one of 6 world class courses within 5-10 minutes drive.

I pride myself in maintaining the condo with very high standards with regard to aesthetic appeal and cleanliness. There is no smoking within the condo or on the lanai. No pets are allowed.

About Berney

Aloha, my name is Berney. I moved to Maui in 2007 and retired. Since then I have embraced Hawaiian culture and immersed myself in local activities. I have been a member of the Rotary Club of Kihei Sunrise and the Kihei Community Association. I am very active with the Kihei Canoe Club as a paddler and active board member. Unlike many Maui Vacation Rental condo owners, I live close by. So I can provide advice on activities, restaurants, etc.

I enjoy sharing the Kihei Akahi condo with others who want to experience Maui's aloha spirit and all it has to offer. There is a reason folks say Maui No Ka Oi (Maui is the best). Come and enjoy sunny skies, cooling trade winds, and warm clear tropical waters. See the fish and plant life that exist nowhere else on earth. Experience the vast variety of activities or just relax on the beach. Discover Aloha.

Berney purchased this condo in 2004

Why Berney chose Maui

I purchased this Kihei Akahi condo because it is located at the best beaches in Maui and is just a mile from Wailea. Wailea is the upscale resort in South Maui where there is world class golf and tennis, fine dining, and the Shops at Wailea. But while Wailea is so close, it is also expensive. At Kihei Akahi I found excellent accommodations at a faction of the cost so my guests could spend more time enjoying all that Maui offers. And some of the best restaurants and shopping are within walking distance!

What makes this condo unique

The condo includes beach gear - umbrella, towels, ice chest, boogie boards, snorkel, mask and flippers. And having a washer/dryer in the unit allows you to pack light and possibly forego the luggage fee on your trip.

I enjoy helping guests get the most from their Maui experience. I am happy to give restaurant tips, recommendations on activities, and information on some of the best snorkel spots. As a member of the Kihei Canoe Club, I enjoy inviting guests to join me for a morning paddle in an outrigger canoe.

There are many things to do on Maui that don't cost much money or are free. I'd be happy to help you learn about them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. Thank you for your clean and well stocked condo. We appreciate this very much. The comfort and the view are awesome - especially the sunsets. The WiFi and very good selection of TV channels is also appreciated. We will be sure to recommend you to all our friends.



We enjoyed 4 very relaxing weeks and now are packing to get ready to return to the "real world" ie. -15C, work and frozen arena ice as compared to the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Have a great 2016!!! Aloha and Mahalo.

Frequent visitor to Maui

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Bernie has taken great care to furnish and equip his unit to enhance his visitors' experience and pleasure. And a two minute walk to wonderful swimming made this the perfect place for me to stay - for the Film Festival, to visit friends, to get healthy! Thank you Berney! I look forward to returning!!

Best Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

What more can we say. Berney and his condo have been the BEST. Kihei is the best place to stay on Maui. It's central to everything. It's quiet and relaxing but there's still a lot to do. The condo comes with everything you could possibly need, we packed light and just washed clothes, it was great. Having all the beach gear made things so much more fun. We snorkeled almost everyday and swam with HUGE turtles on 3 occasions. 9 days wasn't nearly enough, we'll definitely be back soon!

Awesome Sea Themed Decor

  • 5 of 5

From our first step in Berney's condo, we fell in love with the nice decor. The condo was exactly as advertised. It was equipped with everything we needed for our stay and much more including snorkel gear, beach towels, chairs, boogie boards etc. The in unit washer/dryer also came in very handy during our vacation.

Berney also sent us a list of fun things to do in Maui which was very helpful in planning our activities.

I highly recommend this place. Hopefully we will visit again soon.

Excellent place to stay & great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Berney's condo. It was great to not have to pack or buy/rent beach gear! The condo was very clean, comfortable, and welcoming. We had most of our meals out on the lanai and enjoyed the view of the ocean. The beach just across the street was perfect for lounging & snorkeling. Most things you may need (shops, restaurants) are within walking distance. We recommend this place & hope to maybe stay again in the future.

Great Kihei location

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I did not give this a 5* was that you could only see the ocean from outside on the deck. From inside you look at an adjacent building. The unit itself was perfect for a couple. It was stocked with beach gear, linens dishes- everything you need. Also this property is 100 yards from the best beach and walking paths. There were at least 20 restaurants nearby. And the owner was helpful and flexible.

Wonderful Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

Berney's condo is bright, fully equipped, comfortable and very clean. The lanai has an ocean view, the kitchen is a marvel, and the bedroom closet is packed with beach stuff - chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc. There is a very nice beach right across the street - when the waves were up we went boogie boarding, and when it was calmer we went snorkeling - plenty of fish, and we even saw a few turtles. There are many shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood; it's fun to go out for a stroll and just see where you end up. Berney is very helpful and an excellent host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
