About Daniel

After visiting Maui on vacation for the first time, I decided right then, that I wanted a slice of Paradise to keep for myself. I later returned and bought an elegant 1 BD unit, as seen at VRBO listing # 305826. I enjoyed visiting it now and then, but got as much satisfaction out of turning other people on to vacations they'll never forget. So I bought this unit the following year, to offer some versatility for those wanting something even MORE affordable and didn't need as much space. It's right down the hall from my other, so some people spend a little time in each unit, or lodge other family members that may attend a wedding or golf tournament. Best of both worlds!

Daniel purchased this condo in 2011

Why Daniel chose Maui

Kihei Akahi has long been established as one, if not THE finest complex in South Kihei. Beautifully landscaped grounds, lush foliage, tennis courts ( I used to be semi-good YEARS ago), very clean units, pools, spacious parking, and great security. Right across the street from the finest Beaches in South Maui and very near great shopping and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Many people comment on their love for the tropical birds that come alive when the sun comes up in the morning. Nature's own alarm clock. Much better than the one that gets you up for work every day back home. Also guests love the kitchen and Queen Bed, instead of the Murphy Beds found in many studios. Also it's decorated by a pro designer, so it's not your run of the mill generic, white-walled condo most people rent. Really feels like home. You may actually want to hang OUT in it a little!

Quiet, Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a last minute vacation to Maui, and Daniel's condo was wonderful. He was super easy to get in touch with (which was a huge plus when planning a last minute trip!) and was able to answer all of my questions promptly. This was my first time using VRBO and booking directly with the owner, and it could not have been easier! If you are on the fence, just do it :) You could stay here without a car and find plenty of restaurants, shopping, and beaches to walk to, but it is also a great location for exploring other parts of the island like Haleakala and the Road to Hana with a car.

The condo had everything you could ask for and more- A/C, comfy and stylish furnishings/decorations, all the kitchen gadgetry you would need, beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, umbrellas, and cooler. We ate most of our meals out, but it was nice to have a morning cup of coffee (coffee and filters provided!!) on the lanai and listen to the tropical birds sing to you every morning. You can see the mountain and a bit of the ocean as well. We were pleasantly surprised to find mayo, mustard, ketchup, pb&j in the fridge and an assortment of sunscreen, aloe vera, and hair products in the bathroom (not sure if that was a gift from the previous renters or standard fare, either way we were grateful for it!). We will definitely recommend Daniel's condo to our friends and family, and hope to return someday!

A previous renter had mentioned that the shades did not keep the sunlight out in the morning- Daniel must have just put in some great blackout curtains, and they worked great!

Owner's Response: Aloha Erika, Thanks for a great review. A guest about to check in to my other studio, asked what they may need to bring along or buy at Costco before arriving to the condo. I told them to just wait and see first, as I try to cover all the bases, and other guests also leave some quality things behind, most of which can be used. I think I'll just forward this review to her, hehe. Couldn't say it any better. As for the curtains . . . I did indeed buy, mount new curtain hardware, and had help hemming (2) sets of new blackout curtains. A stylish brown color on the inside. Will keep out the sun in the early AM, but most guests are from different enough time zones, so that they are up well before the sun and ready to hit the beach. Regardless, I myself am a late riser, so why not please as many people as possible? Anyway . . . thanks for noticing. Also new improvements not yet pictured, are some new antique Chinese influenced pieces. A Teak Storage/TV Stand, and hand-painted ornate Room Divider, for separating the sleeping areas, if anyone is on the sleeper sofa and bed at the same time. A very cool hand-tiled dining table with wheels, nestles under the glass-topped desk and computer station. Ok, enough, I'm starting to sound like my VRBO description pages. New photos coming soon though. Mahalo for the review and your time after you arrived back home to your busy life. Please do come back again and have a great Summer. Daniel

Nice place to enjoy Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were making a short trip to Maui after good time in Oahu. This is our second trip to Maui. This condo is located centrally for various activities. It has fully furnished kitchen and all the amenities required for both short term and long term stays. It is very close to Farmer's market on South Kihei Rd and we enjoyed fresh coconut water and mangoes there. Thank you Daniel.

Owner's Response: Aloha Abraham, Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Very cool that you took a little time to find some fresh produce, one of Maui's specialties. Of course, all the islands have something unique to offer. Do come back to Maui again, when you can stay longer. There are endless things to see and do. Mahalo for all . . Daniel

Just walk in and enjoy Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Maui and really enjoyed your condo! Perfect location, fully stocked kitchen and great view! It is clear the owner knows how to ensure guest comfort, from the large safe, to the swimming gear, to the chairs and towels, he had everything covered! We are from the east coast so waking up early was easy. For those that need the condo to be completely dark at sunrise, the shades do not keep the sunlight out. Other than that, expecta fully stocked condo at an excellent location! Looking forward to a future visit to Maui!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

I came by myself from Canada. This the first time I stayed in Daniel's condo. It was perfect. The condo was in a great spot - walking distance to everything - the beach, grocery stores, restaurants. I was woken up every morning to the birds singing and a view of lush greenery. It was private and quiet and perfectly stocked with everything I would need. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Elizabeth, Thanks for the post. Glad you like the birds in the morning and evening. It really is almost like a sanctuary and tropical garden beneath the lanai. Thanks for the kind words and for thinking enough of your trip to take the time to write this. Many thanks. Do come back again and again! Daniel

This studio condo has it all. It is close to many activities and restaurants and at the same time in a quiet and serene area. We really enjoyed our morning walks to the west. All info relative to site-seeing,restaurants and directions provided by Daniel was very appreciative. We also downloaded a GYPSY App to our cell which was helpful with directions and provided a great history of Maui. We had a rental car for 2 weeks ,but it was only necessary for road trips to Hana, Haleakala and Lahaina . If our home in Eastern Canada were not so far away, we would definitely be back. South Kihei is a great vacation spot and this condo was perfect for my wife and I. Thanks again, !, Daniel.

Owner's Response: Aloha Dennis, Another shining review, thank you kindly. That's a nice way to put it . . a great location, yet quiet and serene. Thanks for booking with me, and for passing on your experiences with others. It's much appreciated. Well, I know you are far away from Kihei, but do hope you are able to make it here once again. I'm with you . . . it's pretty darn special. Mahalo, Daniel

Absolutely perfect...

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect. Nicely located, very private, and so beautifully equipped! It really did have everything we needed for a relaxing, beach holiday. It was comfortable and quiet, and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. I apologize for forgetting to sign the guest book, to let you know this. Anyway, thank you again. I'm rested and relaxed and ready to head into the office tomorrow morning.
