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 Maui

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.

Great condo in a nice central location

  • 5 of 5

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 at We would love the opportunity to turn that 4 stars into a 5 star on your next stay with us :) Mahalo, Jon & Shelley

Great property, excellent location and unbeatable value!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with our two kids (4, 7) for 10 days in May 2016.

The condo is very well appointed. All appliances worked great, no issues really to speak of. With small kids, we do a lot of cooking, including grilling, and we found everything we ever needed for that. Beach equipment was a nice bonus. Loved the ground floor patio - the kids got to get out on the grass and run around a chasing birds :)

Having the Kamaole beaches across the street was a huge plus. Although we were mostly out and about exploring Maui during the first part of the day, being able to walk to the beach in the afternoon was very neat.

Thanks Jon and Shelley!

Great stay !

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from our wonderful Maui vacation - Thank you Jon & Shelley for making our stay so comfortable and homey! We loved the location, amenities ! 2016 provided nothing but 18 days of total sunshine and a great place to call home each evening! We had 6 of us to start and then 4 in the middle and finally 5 days with just us 2 :) The pool complex was fun and convenient and even though only 2 bbq's at each, there was never a line up - just social time to meet others! We got to meet some of the annual visitors and made new connections that we will treasure. Thanks again ! Recommend to all!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Condo was perfect! We arrived late and were unable to retrieve the parking permit, but were able to speak with security and were assured that we were not going to be towed that evening, but to check in with the office the next morning. The security officer was very nice and very professional. Jon also came by that evening and check in with us to make sure we made it, since we did arrive late, and he made us feel very comfortable and welcome, we truly appreciated the extra attention. There were four of us who stayed and we all loved all the amenities, location, and access to the beach. Kitchen was supplied with all the utensils needed for cooking and the living room was spacious and comfortable for us (four adults). The cards/games, etc were a bonus when we just wanted to sit home and relax. The pool was super fun and clean and was perfect when we were eating dinner (no clean up in the kitchen) because it had a BBQ along with tables available to sit and eat. We were walking distance from shops and a short drive to Safeway. The Black Sand Beach was also a short drive, located by Wailea, it was beautiful with many sea turtles that pop up, and if you're willing to snorkel here, you'll hear the sounds of the whales singing to each other. A food truck, located walking distance from the condo, next to the Chevron, serves an amazing calamari, coconut shrimp, spicy garlic shrimp, pulled pork, mahi mahi (there was more variety, but that was all we tried ;)). We had an awesome time! Thank you Jon & Shelly, we are definitely planning another trip :)). We love Maui!

Aloha! We miss you and your fabulous condo already! After spending 15 days beaching, touring and experiencing so many of the various amazing opportunities of Maui, we would recommend your glorious condo to anyone.

Many, many, many thanks!! See you again. Mahalo, the women from Canada
