Overview

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, perfect ocean water and never tire of the beautiful sunsets and rainbows.

Becky Thorman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Becky Thorman chose Kihei

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!

The condo was very nice and the view of the ocean was fantastic! well stocked with the necessities

  • 5 of 5

The condo has everything you need and the bed was a very pleasant surprise, very comfortable. Nice and close to the best beaches and every other convenience in Kihei. We made good use of the small soft cooler bag that Becky provided when we inquired, it went everywhere with us so thank you for that! The upgrades in the condo were great, especially the new windows, they made a huge difference for temperature control. We never needed the air conditioner. Having the ability to block out the sound of the birds (a nice as they are) allows you to sleep in past 6am! We have stayed in both condos and hotels and I would say this has been our best experience yet (12 Years). We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maui.

Thank you Becky and Mark!

Happy New Year!

Owner's Response: What a lovely review! Thank you so much Debb and Mike. It makes us happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and you appreciated the small cooler bag we left for you. Seeing that it was such a hit, we decided to leave it in the condo for future guests to use. We totally agree that the upgraded dual pane windows help with temperature control as well as quieting the symphony of birds. Kihei Akahi is without a doubt in a great location – so close to the beach, shops and restaurants. And that we have a view of the ocean, the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala is a definite plus! Here’s to your next trip to Maui and your next stay in our condo! With Aloha, Becky and Mark

A cozy piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely, very clean and had a view of the mountains and the ocean. It was situated in a lovely location and close to the beaches. The owners were very helpful and provided all the appliances and many extras. We will certainly return.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. We also love the view of the mountains and the ocean from our condo and that the complex is so close to the beach - you don't even need to get in the car. Being within walking distance to some shops and restaurants is also a definite plus. Here's to another trip to Maui and another stay in our condo. With Aloha, Becky and Mark

Absolutely everything we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO. We would never do anything else! What a great first experience. We arrived early to Maui and a text was waiting when we turned our phones back on that our place was ready. WOW, after flying for 13 hours that was greatly appreciated. The condo was equipped with absolutely everything, the little extras(lots of spices, a super comfortable bed, basic condiments, ketchup, mayo, mustard) 2 bottles of cold water, chocolates and macadamia nuts waiting for us upon our arrival. YUM. Situated in the great little town of Kihei with great shops and restaurants in walking distance. The beach was awesome, as was the snorkeling and turtles on both ends of our beach! I am a walker and felt so safe and comfortable taking my morning walks. Everyone was so friendly. Thank you for everything Becky🐢�

Owner's Response: We love to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and we are glad that you were able to check in early. A big shout of thanks goes out to our cleaning crew! Glad you found everything you needed and the chocolates and macadamia nuts were appreciated. We think that Kihei Akahi is in a great location - a very short walk to a great beach (with lifeguards) as well as close to shops and restaurants. It's always a special day when you go out snorkeling and get to swim with the turtles! Here's to another trip to Maui and you are always welcome to stay in our condo. With Aloha, Becky and Mark
