Recovering from last August's devastating fires takes time -- and you can help restore a sense of normalcy, not to mention economic recovery! The Valley Isle is welcoming back travellers, and our place is a great spot to call "home-away-from-home".

The island is open again, except for one key location: West Maui, which is still recovering from the devastating fires in August, 2023. Let me say off the top: do not go to Lahaina. It's closed to everyone except those working on cleaning up and rebuilding the place, and a sign at one of the blocked entries says it all: NO ENTRY - NO PHOTOS - RESPECT.

We have been trying to contribute, making our condo available immediately after the fire as temporary accommodation for people who had been burned out of their homes. They have now found longer-term accommodation and are rebuilding their lives.

Also, there is always a need for relief help, and an organization close to our hearts is "A Cup of Cold Water", run by the Episcopal (Anglican) Church on Maui -- and friends. This is an outreach ministry, which delivers food, water, clothing and other essentials to unhoused people all over the island, and as you can imagine, their need has become more acute since the fire. Drew recently rode along with one of the trips into the West Maui area, and if you would like to contribute financially, visit www.accwmaui.org.

You can also help just by coming, enjoying the Valley Isle's many features aside from Lahaina and West Maui, and with that, contributing to the recovery. You can make our condo your home base for exploring places like the magnificent 'Iao Valley, Up-Country, the ranchland at Makawao, prime surfing spots like Jaws and Pa'ia. Travel the spectacular Hana Highway (pro tip: have someone who knows the way do the driving!), and reach new heights at the mystical Haleakala -- the dormant volcano rising up literally from Kihei's back yard.

OR ... hang out on Kama'ole Beach 2 (there are three contiguous beaches at Kama'ole -- #2 is literally across the street from Kihei Akahi). Enjoy one of the greatest and most family-friendly beaches anywhere -- you might even see a whale, frolicking in the waves (as much as whales "frolic"), like this baby humpback: https://youtu.be/tsv88hblwFU.

Food? You can buy your own groceries and cook your own meals in our condo's deluxe kitchen, use the barbecues in either of the two pool areas, or check out the many restaurants on the Island. They cover pretty much every taste and style, from creative food trucks, to fast-food chains, right up to the elegant Cafe O'Lei and the uber-pricey (but SO worth it!) Mama's Fish House.

And what is this "home base"? Check out our video -- https://youtu.be/mbjVF5fAPBU.

Our fully furnished, one-bedroom (sleeps 4) condo is in laid-back, family-friendly Kihei. Furnished in a tropical theme, including works by local Maui artists, you'll find a king-size bed in the bedroom, queen-size sofa-bed in the living room, deluxe kitchen and 1 bathroom, with BBQ, two pools and tennis (and pickleball!) courts on the grounds.

We have views of the ocean, mountains and garden, free wi-fi, tennis courts and two pools with BBQs.

How would you like to have a turtle swim just a few feet away from you? It's something you never get tired of – whether it’s the first time or the hundredth time! Kama’ole Beach could be called “Turtle Alley”, as these gentle giants cruise by often, in each direction! It’s an everyday occurrence here, and the perfect relief from the cares you might have back home! Or stick your head under the water and listen to the whales singing -- you don't have to listen too hard, either!

Love snorkeling? The reefs at Kama’ole and further south in Makena -- not to mention Molokini crater -- are a snorkelers’ paradise! Spend time with the turtles, hover over colorful, exotic fish, and maybe even track an octopus! (Just stay away from the reefs and the sea urchins!)

Convinced yet? Check out our reviews (and please note: we don't *ask* for 5-star ratings!).

Whatever your Hawai'ian adventure, our place can be your place to come home to.

* Newly renovated
* Tastefully furnished with island living in mind
* King size bed in bedroom

* Free wi-fi
* Towels and chairs for the beach

NOTE: for full disclosure, there are cameras at the two pools; however, these are to ensure people are abiding by the house rules and the video is not recorded.

And you don't need to take our for it: check out the references from our guests -- many of whom keep coming back -- who consistently give our condo high ratings! We're looking forward to sharing our place with you.

But it's also VERY popular! People -- many of whom are returning guests -- book our place months -- sometimes over a year -- in advance. So choice dates won't last long!

ALOHA!

Centralized location

The office gave us the phone # to call when need anything. However, we did call him for toilet papers 2 days Sun/Mon morning/afternoon (all day), nobody pickup the phone. complained to the office, office said "keep / try" to call him (???). We had to go to Safeway to buy it. it's not a big deal, but service is "how many stars would you give to?"

Had a great stay in Kihei. The property is maintained really well and it's nice to walk around on the grounds and enjoy the plants, trees and flowers. There are 2 pools to choose from so if one is busy you can check the other. The beach across the street is really pretty and relaxing. We never had to use the A/C just left the Lanai doors open and had a great breeze blowing in day and night. The restaurants around were all delicious and convenient. Bonus was all the beach gear in the closets to use at your leisure while on the island. The local Foodland card provided helped us save money in the grocery store. Felt safe and secure as well.

Good value, nice stay with great amenities including washer and dryer, safe in closet, and smart tv. Any place with a smart tv gets five stars for me. Lots of household items available for use, though we barely used any. Great places to get takeout in Kihei. This unit is on the second floor and provides good security for travelers. Ocean view, though small, from the living room and balcony. Bring your own toiletries as shampoo and body wash are not provided. A/C works well, but doesn’t reach the bedroom. Also bring disposable house slippers if you take shoes off in the house.

I would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Maui! Drew and Amelia were easy to work with, and always responded quickly to communication. The suggestions they had for resources, activities, etc. around their location was helpful. The location is phenomenal! Directly across from the beach, you can easily visit it everyday, and the condo has some essential gear for that. If the beach isn’t your thing, the complex has two pools with plenty of seating. There’s also BBQ’s available for use, and they were cleaned every morning by staff (we saw this, not just what we were told). There were only two complaints, and neither were any fault of Drew or Amelia. Upon arrival, there’s was a significant amount of dust collected in a stand up fan in the bedroom and behind the headboard. I’ve passed this issue on, and they’ve notified their cleaning crew, so I have no concerns that it’ll be corrected. The other is simply a part of the building design (which obviously Drew and Amelia don’t have any control). There are windows in the bedroom that face the front walkway of the building. These windows (and/or thin walls) make it easy to hear everything going on outside. The complex does have quiet hours from 10pm-8am, but there were a couple times it was bothersome (like people talking loudly or the garbage truck that came Saturday morning at 7:30am). Those however were only minor inconveniences, and I wouldn’t hesitate to book the condo again. Hopefully I’ll get to visit Maui again sooner rather than later, and do just that!

Unit could use a serious decluttering. We did notify the local contact that the Fridge and Washer need fixing or replacing so perhaps this has already been done. Good location as always.

We had a three night stay in Kihei prior to getting our timeshare up in Napili. All was as explained in the advertisement and the location to the beach and dining, etc..was wonderful! Even a sweet little view of the sun setting! You def. need to run the AC in the living room window for a good portion of the day, so we were thankful for that. The bed was big & comfy but there is Very little room between the bed frame and the dresser - the frame corners kind of stick out and we both hit them and it Hurts! So just be aware - nothing you can do about it and doesn’t diminish the niceness of the rental.

Property grounds very clean, nice pool area, close to beach, and conveniently located near stores, restaurants, and equipment rentals. Condo had lots of extra conveniences like beach umbrellas, chairs, cooler, and much more.

The condo fit our lifestyle well. We're out and about all day, and like to fix simple dinners for ourselves at the end of the day. The living area was comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Because of the buildings layout the bedrooms in all the units are a bit dark and noisy. You can hear any activity in the parking lot, and from people walking to their units, nothing ear plugs can't block out.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! The furnishings are great and you can walk to the beach in less than 5 minutes. There are also many restaurants and souvenir shops within walking distance. The apartment is the perfect size for two people. It may be a bit tight with more. There is no closet space for clothes but the closet is FULL of beach necessities! Towels, beach chairs, umbrella, toys, snorkels - you name it. There is only one AC unit (not central air) in the living room. It was late afternoon when we arrived and all the curtains were open (facing the afternoon sun) and the AC was off, making it incredibly hot inside the unit. We left our luggage, turned on the AC, and left immediately to avoid the heat. We kept the unit cool by using the AC, ceiling fans, and standing fans (though 2 out of the 3 provided standing fans did not work. All could use a good dusting/cleaning). Having thicker or more curtains in the windows would help immensely in keeping the heat out. Overall, a great stay in a great location!

Didn’t have no problems at all during this stay. The welcome package had everything we needed to know in it. You can see the ocean from the balcony and just a short walk to the beach and also to eating and shopping. They do a wonderful job on keeping the grounds cleaned and pool area very clean.

This condo is in such amazing location, only 5 minutes from the beach and great restaurants near by! It was also equipped with everything someone needed while on vacation . Loved waking up every morning and starting the day with the ocean view and coffee in hand on the patio.

Good place. Excellent communications from owner. Only weird thing is that there’s lots of things stored neatly nearly everywhere. For example lots of miscellaneous things stored under bed, in drawers, and in the closet. Nothing bad, but just unexpected. Would stay there again.

This property felt like home. Cleanliness and beach decor plus very spacious accommodations. Walking distance to the beach, stores, and restaurants.

We had a great stay for two weeks at Drew’s condo. It has everything we need and more. Great view of sunset and the night sky. Very quiet and serene. Furniture are in great condition and you could feel like you’re invited into a home someone cared for. Beautiful collection of artwork! The only thing to note is that the bathroom is quite small and the toilet seat could be replaced. I like that the lights could be dimmed. Overall, great value for money! Can’t go wrong booking this place— just have to do it fast because it’s booked up months in advance!

We enjoyed our Maui visit so much! Local places like Beach Street were an almost daily treat. The host sent a welcome package that helped us prep in advance for amazing opportunities like our sunrise experience at Haleakala (thank you so much for that tip!) and exploring along the road to Hana. The beach...an everyday pleasure! The welcome package also included tips on many of the area restaurants (a particular favorite--brunch at the Hula Grill! terrific food and ambiance!). The condo is in a great location, and it's very comfortable. What an amazing adventure! I think we had a better time because of the help and preparation of the welcome package from a wonderful host!

The most accommodating location we have ever stayed out. When out airline changed our flight last minute, they worked with us and let us do a significantly later checked out so my kids could nap before our red eye flight. It was a great location and walking to distance to many places also. There was no door to the bedroom and the bathroom needed a good deep clean but overall it was a perfect stay for us.

We had a wonderful stay. Beds very comfy. The kitchen was perfectly clean and equipped with everything we needed. The beach was fantastic and all the supplies we needed were in the condo. Loved our stay and can't wait to visit again.

We have been to Kehei few times and this is now our favorite property! Relaxing island decor very clean & well stocked kitchen with beach chairs snorkel gear plenty of linens -and detailed travel hints guide. My only regret was renting a car -we didn’t need it being so close to beach restaurants and shopping! Loved having view of the beach from lanai and felt very safe as female traveler …we had a fabulous first anniversary trip.

Big condo, easy walking distance to beaches, shops, restaurants. It was great to have beach chairs, towels, snorkel equipment readily available. Somewhat dated but has everything we needed. We did not do any real cooking, but it looks like we could have. The mattress is very soft so rather uncomfortable if you prefer a firm sleeping surface. Drew provided great information and quick responses to questions.


Liane A.

Located RIGHT across the street from one of the best beaches in Maui. The Condo resort is super clean and well maintained - always beautiful. The condo itself, while a little dated was perfect for us. The kitchen was great - had everything we needed. Super thankful for all the fabulous (new) beach chairs, umbrella, etc. If you want a turn-key Maui experience this is the place!

This is a great and clean unit. It smells really clean when you first walk in. This is our fourth time in Maui and this is the best one. We got the best sleeps here, comfy king bed and comfiest sofa bed. The whole grounds are so well manicured and barbecues are super clean. I can see the staff cleaning them every morning. It is just such a beautiful and quiet complex. The bathroom and shower is kinda small but it is good that the vanity and sink is next to the bathroom so this worked for our family with 2 teenager girls. I also liked how they had an umbrella and 5 Tommy Bahama chairs in the closet. Lots of beach stuff there to use, we bought and left a beach volleyball for future visitors to use. Best location directly across Kam 2 beach. So sad our 20 day beach vacation ended but had the most relaxing holiday in an excellent condo. I loved sitting on the lanai and just enjoy the view so much. We will be back! Thank you so much Drew and Amelia! They were also great to communicate with and quick responses. Till next time Maui❤️.

We recently stayed sept 23-26 for my daughters 9th birthday. The place was great! Where exactly do I start? The area !! Such a clean area with the nicest people. Just a 5 min walk to the beach (which is super family friendly) bars and restaurants also walking distance. We drive to a small breakfast cinnamon bun place to pick up coffee and a huge cinnamon roll in place of a cake for my daughter on her bday topped with a candle lol as for the apartment it’s on the first floor such an amazing view, balcony had chairs and tables, living room had the queen mattress in the couch, dinning table, kitchen had everything we needed, the room and bathroom were perfect as well. Drew has beach chairs, toys, and umbrellas in the closet, the washer/dryer came in handy as well. He is super responsive & I would totally recommend his place to anyone with a small group of 5 or less. Had a great time. Thank you !!

Stayed in Kihei Akahi with my husband for our honeymoon. We loved being able to walk across the street and onto the beach every night for the sunset. Anything we needed from towels to coolers was at our convenience in the condo. Was the perfect location for exploring literally the entire island of Maui in 6 days!

We stayed at this property for 5-nights of our 2-week Maui trip. The location is perfect and close to many beaches (within walking distance). If you choose to not go to the beach there are 2-pool areas on site. The condo itself was a perfect size for us, which was myself and my twin 18-year-old daughters. There were many beach accessories at the condo for us to use, which made the trip more enjoyable. There were fans in the condo to use at night as it got kind of hot in the back bedroom because the window air conditioner unit is located in the living room. I slept on the pullout couch and with the addition of the mattress topper that was provided the bed slept great. Would definitely stay here again if return to Maui!

We had an Amazing stay and didn't want to leave....We will be back!! Drew and Amelia were great to deal with and all our questions were responded to quickly and the information package we received prior to arriving was very detailed and helpful.The condo was in a great location with quick access to the pool, a quick 3 min walk to the beach, restaurants and local shopping. The condo was clean and very well equipped for all out beaching needs and group dinners. The condo is on a main floor so there were no stairs to deal with and we had a peak a boo view of the ocean and pool. We will really miss the mornings we spent on the lanai with our coffee and listening and watching all the birds. Thank you Drew and Amelia we left with amazing memories <3

We have stayed at Kihei Akahi for the past three years we have visited Maui. Beautiful grounds always well kept. Loved talking to their staff, Laura is the best. Good location, short walk to the beach, so no driving and looking for a parking spot. Fred's Mexican Cantina/ Moose McGillycuddy's is a quick right from the bottom of the driveway and have a buy one get one free breakfast. The fried rice is the best. Also if you get there early you can get a window seat and watch the sunset if you go for a later supper. Lots of shopping and grocery shopping near by. Kihei is one of the spots on the island that receives the least amount of rain. This condo unit has two pools, the dark pool closer to the ocean is always warmer. There are also tennis courts on the property. Condo's come stocked with everything you need from beach towels to beach toys. Love having the washer and dryer so I pack light and leave room for extra stuff to bring home. Over all great place to stay, wouldn't go any where else.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this condo on our Maui vacation. Pros: Excellent location, close to great beaches, restaurants and shopping. Large nicely appointed condo with washer/dryer, plenty of pots, pans and dishware. Beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards in the condo for guests to use. Cons: The only issue that we had was that the master bedroom is far from the window mounted AC unit and the bedroom was uncomfortably warm (even with floor and ceiling fans on). Overall, our stay was great and I would recommend this property.

We loved the condo at the Kihei Akahi. It is extremely close to Kam 2 beach, meaning you walk down the driveway and you're there! Kam 2 was a great beach to see the turtles, go snorkeling and swimming. There are restaurants and bars next door, as well as, grocery stores and general stores, basically everything is a quick walk away. The condo is also equipped with beach towels, chairs, cooler bag, umbrella and anything else you might need for beach excursions. The pool was right outside the patio with a bbq that we used a lot. Drew and Amelia are very helpful and quick to respond. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and we would return in a heartbeat.

This is the third time we've stayed at Amelia's and Drew's Kihei Akahi condo. They are so nice to work with and very helpful. Once I had to change our reservation by one day on each end and there was absolutely no problem or fuss. The condo has a keyless entry and seems very safe and secure. Wake up to lots of singing birds then have coffee on the lanai overlooking the pool beautiful landscaping.

Drew and Amelia's condo is in a wonderful complex in Kihei! Quiet, immaculately landscaped and close to everything- the beach, shops, and restaurants. The condo itself is very well stocked and beautifully decorated! The owners are great to deal with and are so organized! Very much appreciated! We'd didn't want to leave and look forward to another visit in the near future!

The condo is lovely and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The beach, many restaurants and shops are nearby in walking distance. Kihei is a nice Place, not too touristic and a good start for trips to other spots. We loved it.
