About Jon

We enjoy Managing and Operating our vacation rental personally. From our own experience as VRBO renters, dealing with a private Management company may not be the most pleasant experience and may feel like an impersonal process when planning your vacation. There is a little more flexibility dealing directly with the owner and we love being involved in communicating directly with our guests.

We take pride in offering our guests a great home away, providing our guest with a memorable Hawaiian experience, and for our guests to take away a small piece of the Aloha spirit.

Whether you are new to the island or one of our frequent guests, we believe that the Service we provide is what separates us from other owners. We have owned our condo since 2010 and from all the great reviews over the years it has been very rewarding to know we have had a small part in our guests Maui experience.

Jon purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jon chose Kihei

We have done a lot of research in choosing the perfect vacation rental on the island of Maui. The Kihei Akahi complex is centrally located on the island and is a personal favorite for many of our guests for that reason. With Kamaole Beach Park II (One of Maui's Best Beaches) for spending the day in the sun within steps of the condo, many fabulous restaurants & shopping right next door to the complex, and being Central to everything on the island, makes The Kihei Akahi and our condo a great choice.

What makes this condo unique

The Kihei Akahi is a clean, quiet, and a well manicured property. Our bottom floor, end unit, is convenient and easily accessible from the close parking stall. There is a large grass lanai between two community pools and a Tennis Court for a day of exercise. We offer air conditioning in the unit with ceiling fans and stationary fans for maximum comfort and more kitchen amenities than the average rental. The rental is fully stocked with all the amenities of a resort and more.

Far exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Jon in the Virgin Islands a few years ago. We were the only two people in the restaurant so we struck up a conversation while waiting 45 min for a to go order. He mentioned his property in Maui a place that was on my bucket list. We stayed in touch over the years and we sent our last kid to college this year so we said it is time to go o Maui.

Jon and his wife have paid attention to every detail. Down to the great Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella. To having so many ice packs for you to take your lunch on the beach without worrying about your food and drinks getting warm. The crazy thing they even have several cooler options as well. It was truly like being at home because they have thought about everything.

The condo was in an awesome location steps from the beach and dozens of restaurants and shops. Everyone on the property was super nice. The condo was wonderfully decorated with a great kitchen and outdoor seating.

Again I would like to thank Jon and Shelley for a truly wonderful vacation and we will be back! The only negative is that we had to return home to the cold!

Owner's Response: Aloha Damon & Future Guests, What a great review and hits the heart, heavy with warm touches :) Yes, we had the pleasure of meeting Damon out in St Thomas, USVI and we invited him to stay with us here in Maui, at our wonderful 2 bedroom home in South Kihei and across the street from one of the best beaches, Kamaole Beach Park II. These are the types of reviews that encourages us to offer a higher standard and better product than most owners on island. As mentioned by Damon, we have thought of everything for our guests :) We want our guests to experience a relaxed, convenient, and prepared vacation, with a fully stocked home away. So, what are you waiting for, our future and welcomed Guests? Click the book it now and let us make your vacation on Maui as wonderful and convenient as the Damon Paul family. Thank you Damon for such kind words about our home for other future Guests to read about. It is very much appreciated when our Guests share their experience about our home with others. We hope to hear from you again in the future if coming back out to Maui. We welcome you anytime to stay with us again, and that includes our home in St. Thomas, USVI when the island returns back to normal from Hurricane Irma. We offer a repeat 10% off discount for future stays. You can take a look at our home there in St. Thomas at: www.vrbo.com/764131, but at the current moment, and due to unable to offer a reservation, the site is down until about March or April 2018. Have a blessed and wonderful 2017 and beyond. Happy Holidays over the next few Months of celebration. Keep in touch and hope to talk to you soon our friend :) Mahalo Nui Loa, Jon & Shelley Owner/Property Manager Kihei Akahi Resort B105 www.vrbo.com/329462 (949)278-2745

I've booked to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jon and Shelly for allowing us to stay at your lovely condo. It was a perfect location and "home-base" for our family of 4. Located 350 ft from the beach, each evening we viewed the sunset with a glass of wine in our hands. We also enjoyed the soft carpeting on our feet. A well stocked kitchen, and everything well maintained we decided to book another trip to Maui during Christmas time. Can't wait!!

These are the types of reviews that gives us the pleasure of providing our home to our Guests. We like to play a small part in our Guests vacations here in Maui and that is the reward of the business. Thank you for such a great review my Wisconsinite Friends. Who'm I've had the pleasure of meeting during your stay. Such great people. Very kind and yes, it is true, they are coming back to stay again. They loved our condo and Maui so much, I'd say a permanent residence may be in the future :) Have a wonderful and blessed 2017 and beyond and may the Cowboys beat the Packers lol.

The condo was clean and comfortable. It was well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen and for the beach. We loved that there was so much beach gear. It was perfect for our family and the owners were great to work with too.

Very Satisfied

  • 4 of 5

Excellent property location - just across the street from a great beach and near shopping malls. Easy drive to scuba charters and local attractions. The unit was clean with all the kitchen/dining utensils, cookware, and dishes needed. Owners provided excellent communication from start to finish.

The only thing keeping me from giving a 5-star is that the unit was warm due to our stay being in the middle of summer and only one a/c unit in the living room. Had to sleep with the bedroom doors open and fans blowing cooler air into the rooms while we slept. That actually made the rooms quite comfortable and ideal for sleeping.

All things considered, I would recommend staying at this location and will consider staying here again on our next visit to Maui.

Owner's Response: Aloha Michael, Thank you for the great review. Sorry we fell short during the hottest period we have had this summer in many many years. We are one of the few owners that actually supply an Air Conditioner in our rental for our guests. Can you imagine what it would have been like if we did not have an A/C , ceiling fans, and the stand up portable fans? :) We hope to hear from you, family, or friends to stay with us if you or they are thinking about coming out to Maui for vacation. We will be putting a portable air conditioner in the rental for our future guests in the event that things start to warm up again. Thank you for the advisement on that. We want to make sure all our guests are comfortable during their stay. Even in the event of a heat wave. Have a blessed 2016 and if you are going to be out on vacation in the Caribbean, we also have a vacation rental in St. Thomas, USVI and would love to have you stay with us there too. You can see our rental on VRBO.com at www.vrbo.com/764131. We would love the opportunity to turn that 4 stars into a 5 star on your next stay with us :) Mahalo, Jon & Shelley
