About the property

1 Bathroom, Studio With Full Kitchen And Laundry

Welcome to our tastefully renovated and decorated Kihei Akahi studio D-301, that we affectionately call

“Our Pearl”.

Kihei Akahi is located directly across from three of South Maui’s most beautiful beaches, Kamaole I, II and III. All three of the Kamaole beaches have lifeguards, showers and restroom facilities and are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding/body surfing, walking, playing volleyball or just hanging out and enjoying the warm sun, perfect water and watching the magnificent whales from late December to early May.

The Kihei Akahi complex has beautifully maintained grounds, two pools, bbq grills, a tennis court and is centrally located within walking distance to several fine restaurants, shopping and activity centers. Our condo is located at the back of the complex away from the road noise and has a private feeling with great views.

From our private lanai you have the benefit of 180 degree views of ocean, the island of Lanai, stunning sunsets, West Maui Mountains, sun and moon rises and the leeward slopes of the mighty Haleakala.

Being a corner unit, the additional side window provides good light, views of Haleakala and a wonderful breeze that flows through our condo.

You will have the most comfortable and relaxed stay in our condo. We have updated our unit with new decor and furnishings: a dining table that can seat 4, a Beautyrest World Class Brentford Luxury Firm Queen Size Bed, a sofa, a comfy chair, a lanai set and a beautiful custom made tv armoire that has 2 closets and drawers for your clothes as well as extra storage space for your luggage when you unpack and settle in.

For your indoor entertainment, we have a 39' hdtv and a dvd player. We also have an am/fm alarm clock that is a charging station for your i-pod or i-phone.

There is a hanging pot rack with a full set of cookware and the gas range is great to cook on with a microwave/fan/light above it. In addition to a coffee maker (we provide the filters), there is a tea pot, a blender, a toaster oven and a spice rack complete with spices. The refrigerator is full size and we are the only studio in Kihei Akahi that has a dishwasher.

When you head out to the beach there are 2 Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs for you to use, a Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, beach towels and a small playmate cooler. There are also plastic cups, plates and utensils for you to take to the beach or the pool, as well as to use in the condo.

About Becky Thorman

In 2002 we vacationed on Maui with our two sons, fell in love with Maui and moved to Kihei the following year. Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20+ years we truly appreciated the sunny days and perfect ocean water and after 10 years of living here we still love it and never tire of the beautiful sunsets and rainbows.

Becky Thorman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Becky Thorman chose Maui

Kihei Akahi is close to everything that one needs to relax on Maui. Three of the most beautiful beaches (Kamaole I, II and III) are across the street. There are restaurants, shopping and activity centers within walking distance. The grounds of the Kihei Akahi are well maintained, are filled with lovely tropical flowers, plumeria trees, breadfruit trees, banana trees, palm and monkey pod trees. The birds that also call Kihei Akahi their home will sing to you throughout the day!

This is my second stay in this unit and the owners have made it a home away from home. It is by far the best studio in Kihei Akahi

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Unit D 301 for our very first visit to Hawaii to celebrate our 30th anniversary. From the very moment we entered the condo we new we were going to love it. We were welcomed with a lovely gift of flowers, chocolates and macadamia nuts! The condo was so well equipped and organized, especially for a small space. My two biggest concerns when travelling are the cleanliness of the unit and the bed! Both exceeded my expectations! Thank you Mark and Becky for employing a great cleaning crew. All the little extras were also greatly appreciated! From the beach towels, chairs, cooler and boogie boards, to the remotes for the A/C and ceiling fan. We lacked nothing at all. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast every morning on the lanai while listening to the birds. And then dinners to see the beautiful sunsets. When we had an issue with the screen door, Mark and Becky showed up the very next day to replace it. Thank you so much for that! Once again, this was an amazing place to stay for our first, but definitely not our last visit to Maui! I have already recommended it to friends.Thanks so much Becky and Mark

Owner's Response: Maui is definitely a wonderful place to celebrate special occasions and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. Thank you for all of the kind words. They really mean a lot to us. How nice to begin your day with breakfast on the lanai while listening to the symphony of birds and to end the day with dinner on the lanai while enjoying the beautiful sunsets. We are delighted that you have recommended our condo to your friends and we look forward to your staying in our condo again. Here’s to next time! With Aloha, Becky and Mark

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. The view is amazing ((ocean, mountains, sunset) and the beach is just a 5 minutes walk from the condo.

We had everything we needed for the beach (beach towels, beach chairs etc) and for the kitchen. There is also a tennis court and 2 swimming pools + BBQ on the site. The condo was perfectly clean.

Becky is really nice and very easy to reach in case of a problem. There were hurricanes on Hawaii before our stay, and our flight was delayed, and she accepted to reimburse us for the nights we couldn't be there.

The beach close to the condo (Kamaole II) is nice for swimming and snorkeling (we saw like 8 big turtles!) and the condo location is good. It is easy to go everywhere from there by car (Halakalea, Lahaina, Paia, Road to Hana etc).

I really recommand this condo!!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and even though your trip was shortened because of the hurricanes, it sounds like you still had plenty of time to explore parts of Maui as well as relax on the lanai while you enjoyed the sunsets and views of the ocean and mountains. Being so close to the beach is such a plus and we are glad you got to see so many turtles (honu) when snorkeling. Here is to next time … With Aloha, Becky and Mark

a room with a view in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was a beautiful experience. The condo is just a small studio on the third floor of a large complex of five or six story buildings. However, it is situated in the back corner of the building farthest from the road, giving it probably the greatest privacy you can obtain in a Kihei accommodation, and yet, still have a spectacular view of the Island of Lana'i, the West Maui mountains, and Haleakala. It overlooks a small undeveloped area, with other condos far enough away that you can sit out on the lanai and watch the suset (or the sun rise over Haleakala, at least at this time of year) without seeing anyone else. The walk down to the beach is short, about three minutes. The interior of the place is clean and modern, with a full kitchen which was immaculate. Because it is a corner unit the light can enter from two directions, which eliminates the cave-like feeling you experience in most condominiums in larger buildings. Little things also impressed me. Such as the way the owners had placed on the table, a thank you card with a box of chocolates and a container of macadamia nuts, bottled water in the refrigerator. It was just a nice welcoming touch that you don't usually get at other places I've stayed at in Kihei. And I've stayed at many, with this place ranking at the top of the list, even above this price range. The only caveat I would give you is that because it is a small studio, it is really only best for a couple (maybe with one or two small children, but that would be a tight squeeze, and you would be better off finding some place larger with at least one bedroom). It is though, a perfect place for a couple seeking to experience this part of Maui, as a comfortable base to explore the rest of the island, and as a quiet, private retreat from the world.

Owner's Response: WOW … thank you, thank you, thank you. What a great review! Needless to say we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our condo as much as you did. Having a corner unit is definitely a plus – the extra light coming in and the air flow through the condo is great on those warm Maui days. The view from the lanai, the short walk to the beach and the close proximity to some shops and restaurants is a definite bonus. We know what a difference the “little things” can make and we are glad you appreciated them. If you travel to Maui again we hope that you will stay in our condo. Until next time … With Aloha, Becky and Mark

Absolutely loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely and welcoming. We stayed for 5 nights and wished we stayed longer. We felt right at home. Becky provided everything we could need. The kitchen was fully equipped with appliances and spices. We also noticed that she provided toiletries including sun screen and aloe Vera under the bathroom sink. As well as beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and towels. We throughly enjoyed the balcony and it's view. We cooked and ate breakfast out there almost every morning. This condo is conveniently located across the street from a beautiful beach. It was just a short maybe 5 minute walk to and from the beach everyday. No driving was necessary as the beach, all the stores as well as restaurants were a walk away. If we ever visit Maui again this condo will be on the top of our list to stay at! We really enjoyed our stay and thank Becky and Mark for everything!

Owner's Response: We loved hearing that you felt right at home in D301. What could be better than starting your day off with a nice breakfast on the lanai while enjoying the view of the ocean and mountains! Glad you found everything you needed in the condo. We totally agree that the location is great - so close to the beach, stores and restaurants. Hopefully when you visit Maui again you'll be able to stay longer and we would love to have you stay in D301. Mahalo and Aloha, Becky and Mark
