SOME COMMENTS FROM OUR GUESTS INCLUDE:
June 2009 - 'Hi Faye. I wanted to let you know that Maui is the best and the condo was wonderful. My husband and I loved it and we felt very at home. Plus it is located in the middle of everything. Also the landscape, pool, and assistance in scheduling activities were wonderful. We did everything and things we never thought we could do. Thanks again for sharing your space and I have put Maui on my list to return to (which is rare since I always like to investigate new places).
May 2009 - 'We had a great time in Hawaii and we LOVED your condo. We cannot wait to go back again. Thank you again'.
'Your place was like a home away from home. It was so comfy and very tastefully decorated'.
'We did have a wonderful time and really enjoyed ourselves. Your apartment is really comfortable and very convenient.'
'Thank you so much for the use of your condo! It was beautifully decorated, full of very helpful amenities, and a gorgeous view. We saw whales from the lanai everyday!'
'We had a wonderful time in Maui and your place was great. It was very homey and I loved the décor, just right for the location.'
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, specifically the East Bay.
John Hutchings (owner), Alice (Faye) Hutchings (rental manager) purchased this condo in 2004
To quote John, 'I've always wanted an excuse to visit Maui' His 'excuse' allows for frequent visits to our condo to make sure our Maui home is comfortable & cozy for our guests. Our goal is to give our guests what we would expect when we rent a condo.
We love to find great spots to snorkel. We enjoy morning coffee/peaceful reading, and evening margaritas & sunsets on our lanai. We like to grill & eat dinner at the pool enclosure in the evening. It's a great time to meet other vacationers, and share experiences & activities others vacationers and hear about all the activities they have participated in - then take a refreshing dip in the pool after dinner!!
Loved our stay in this condo. It is well kept and in a very central location. Grounds are beautifully maintained and clean. Have stayed here many times before and find it to be excellent value for the price. Faye always makes booking so stress free. I loved looking out at the ocean from the lanai while sipping my morning tea.
One week prior to arriving at this condo, I was emailed that there were electrical problems with a circuit breaker, and that the washing machine sometimes did not work. Faye had apologized for this issue and I said no problem thanks for letting me know. Upon arrival, there was a problem with a circuit breaker tripping. Microwave did not work, washing machine worked after circuit was tripped. Faye sent out an electrician to look at the problem. Thereafter washing machine worked and mircrowave. What concerned me was the dryer. It smelled after gas when opening, and made a very loud noise, and did not shut off at end of cycle. Again, Faye apologized, and we agreed to partial refund for the inconvience of drying my clothes on the lanai On 8/25/2013 Faye emailed me that I would receive back for a refund. Which was basically nothing. She claims that I departed the unit and left it in "filth", and also claims I traveled with more than 2 expected occupants and therefore is penalizing me. I was also told I was the worst tenant she has ever had. Upon departure I spoke with the cleaning company she uses, and asked them if I met their specifications for leaving the unit in good condition. Yes they said. All garbage removed, dirty linens placed in one pile, swept, all food items removed from frigerator. Swept floors and wiped down bathroom sink. Loaded dishwasher. Turned off lights, electricity. I believe I was told all of this as an excuse to not refund my money for the broken applicance that was not either repaired or replaced in the 4 weeks that I stayed at this unit. This unit was partially maintained. While it looked remodeled and updated the washer and dryer were very old 20+ yrs. I would not recommend this property to no one.
We just returned from a perfect 2 week stay at Faye and John's wonderful condo. They were so helpful and made booking their place totally stress free. Everything is just as pictured and has all the comforts of home. This is our 3rd trip to Maui and this is the most cozy place we've stayed. I especially appreciated having a washer, dryer to use. The Kihei Akahi property is quiet, well maintained and the landscaping is beautiful. We are avid snorklers and were pleased to discover that some of the best snorkeling is right across the street (Kamaole II)!! What really excited us is that you can often see sea turtles there along with the beautiful fish. There are some wonderful restaurants and shopping just a block away. We did everything from hiking at IAO to driving the Hana hwy and so much more!! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. The only complaint we have is having to leave. Thank you so much Faye and John for the use of your wonderful little piece of heaven. I hope to go back in the near future and have the pleasure of staying here again. I absolutely reccomend staying here. Aloha and mahalo.
2nd time staying at the condo and just like the last time it was perfect. The location in Kihei cannot be beat. Walk across the street for one beach or drive 5-10 minutes and you have all of Wailea's beaches at your disposal also.
The condo was clean, well stocked with beach supplies and all around great.
the condo was everything as advertised, comfy furnshings, mellow setting, close to beach, well equipted.
