This was a beautifully maintained condo. Well equipped with nice and thoughtful amenities. Lanai has a great view. Beautiful Plumeria trees everywhere! So close to the nicest beaches and restaurants! It is perfect for 2 or 3 people.
Very pleased with the accommodations. Thoughtful welcoming items. Most everything you need for a nice stay and beach time.
We had a wonderful time at Gloria’s Condo. The condo has everything you need and is very nice and comfortable. It is updated, has great air conditioning and is in new condition. We lacked nothing. Gloria is so hospitable in that she leaves you with personal touches such as a gift basket. She is always available to talk to if you need to get ahold of her and is very helpful and accommodating. You are right by the beach and close to everything. It’s the Perfect location and condo. We loved it there and will definitely be back!!! Thank you again Gloria!
Gloria's a great host. A nice location right across the street from one of the many great beaches. A spacious apartment well equipped with anything in the kitchen, plus beach towels and chairs and an umbrella. A/C worked great plus ceiling fans. My one issue was noise in the bedroom from the apartment walkway, the windows in a lot of the units provide zero sound dampening, but I started using silicone ear plugs and that did the trick.
We have stayed at this complex multiple times because we love the location but was our first time with this host. Upon arrival there was homemade banana bread, a pineapple, chocolate covered macadamia, and some Hawaiian chips, along with an embroidered personalized hand towel…..much more than is typical, and we thought this was a very nice touch to welcome us to the island. I had asked for a pack n play for our son, and when we got there it wasn’t at the site, but within 15 mins of contacting the host, she had brought one over. Air conditioning worked great, and was one of the best units I’ve experienced in hawaii. Everything was great, and we even were running late at check out, which put cleaning behind, and the host was very understanding as we rushed to get all our luggage out. My only complaint was my infant son who is crawling all over the place kept discovering piles of lint and dust that had accumulated into corners and under furniture. I’m pretty sure it came from the dryer, probably circulated because of the air conditioning, but I took one star off of cleanliness because I would hope under furniture and corners were getting cleaned more…. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it though if it weren’t for my son, and it wouldn’t stop me from coming back. The price was more than fair and we enjoyed our stay.
Great location and the condo is one of the best stocked vacation rentals I've stayed at. Very clean and has chairs, coolers and umbrella for the beach!
Getting in tired late at nite.
really nice surprise(goodies in kitchen) next morning…Waking-up to coffee and fresh delicious homemade Banana nut bread with ocean view lanai provided by hostess Gloria
Priceless! TY Gloria
This condo was exactly what we needed. Extremely well located. Very clean. Gloria went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. Our only complaint has nothing to do with the listing. The roosters woke us up every morning from 2am on. Lol
The condo was perfect! it had everything we needed for a beautiful 10 day stay. we loved that it was only five minute walk to the beach.
Can’t speak high enough about this cute (and updated) condo. It’s the perfect location to the beach and local eateries. Gloria was a gracious and thoughtful hostess. The welcome gifts were a nice surprise and really appreciated. Can’t wait to return!!

We loved the Kihei area!
This was our first time in Maui - I booked at 3 different locations on the island so that my partner and I can experience all of Maui (first at Lahaina, then Hana, and finally Kihei). And we were absolutely pleased to end our trip at this particular location. The unit was, by far, the best one we stayed at - it was centrally located around many shops all within walking distance. And not to mention, it was across the street from a very nice beach. The unit, itself, was very lovely! It was clean, the balcony was spacious with a lovely view, love the decor and vibe of the place. The unit was much larger than I thought - which was very nice. The kitchen was great. And what's more, our host included a personal/custom gift - we really felt the thoughtfulness that went into it. Thank you so much for being a part of our journey and vacation in Maui. If I return, this would be the place I would want to stay at again!
First time in Hawaii and it was wonderful. We were right in the right place to see everything. The place we stayed in was very accommodating and peaceful. Close to everything!
We enjoyed our stay and loved we were only a block’s walk from the beach. Our lanai gave us a great view also and the property was generally quiet.
The condo was stocked with everything we needed to cook and enjoy our visit. The owner even left us a sweet surprise…..
Lots of aloha from the owner. A beautiful and generous welcome from our host and a super location. The condo was very clean and the kitchen well stocked. An amazing stay - we will be back!
This property is amazing!!! The condo overlooks a courtyard area and offers some ocean views as well. Short walk to beach and shops. The property owner has a fully stocked unit including towels, beach chairs, coolers and more. She also left a most thoughtful welcome gift with fresh cake, chips, candies and a lovely embroidered towel!! The unit does have an AC unit however we never needed to use it. The fans and open patio door allow for a perfect temperature. Thank you so much Gloria for allowing us to stay in your property. Hope to be welcomed back again next year.
The condo was exactly as described. Gloria was very responsive and accommodating. We loved our time on Maui and the condo was perfect.
Nothing bad to say here! Place was clean, Gloria was very clear/punctual and even went out of her way to make our welcome feel so very special to us. Location, amenities, price was all above expectations!
My wife and I stayed at this property for a week prior to Christmas. We were actually visiting our daughter, and her family, who live close to this VRBO. This condo is very nicely situated in Kihei, was very clean and the owner was very gracious in providing several amenities. We definitely recommend this unit.
The apartment was really clean and the instructions were very clear. Gloria even left us some snacks and goodies which added a very special touch. Overall really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it.
Gloria lives on the island and has for years. She had great advice of what to see/do, the staff at the property were delightful (and everyone was very friendly). Her place is great and has everything you’d need; you are just across the street from a fabulous beach. Gloria went above and beyond with her welcome gifts and making us feel welcome. I’ve stayed at a lot of VRBOS and she is far and away the best.
We loved the welcome basket. The bed is very comfortable. The air conditioner is awesome. We prefer using the breeze through the lanai and front screen with ceiling fans.
The property was even more beautiful in person. Gloria was the best host! Not only was the condo clean and comfortable, she had a personalized hand towel, some amazing homemade banana bread, some chocolates and a fresh pineapple waiting! Such a thoughtful surprise. Everything we needed was available. Air conditioning was very nice and the bed was extra comfortable. The view from the balcony was amazing as well. We will definitely be back.
Gloria provides excellent communication and information from the beginning, and her personalized welcoming touches really started the stay off perfectly. Well maintained (THANK YOU FOR THE AMAZING A/C!), well stocked both in the kitchen and with beach equipment, and we so appreciated the homemade banana bread, pineapple, coffee, candy and the personalized towel. We would definitely stay here again..5+++ stars!!
Condo was in the perfect location and had everything we needed. Air conditioning was quick to cool the room down after hot beach days. Interior was updated and felt modern. It was exactly what we’re were liking for and Gloria was always responsive. Hopefully we get a chance to come back soon!
Love this location - can't get much closer to the beach! Owner was quick, clear and attentive, and very welcoming. Unit as pictured, well stocked. While pool area is average, the bbq's are new and great to cook on. Grounds are very well kept, elevator was quite quick too. Lots of pros with this rental for sure!
Gloria included some welcome goodies that were highly appreciated! The unit is steps from the beach with an ocean view patio. The ACs kept us cool! Beach chairs, towels, coolers and umbrella were great to use at the beach. Thank you for the amazing stay!
Gloria was a great host and communicated details well in advance. She had snacks and a personalized dish towel for us. The condo was very nice and well equipped. I’d stay here again.
The experience was absolutely fantastic. The condo was very well appointed and the owner did I great job of making us feel welcome. KIHEI is a very nice place and lots of things to see. Was a trip well worth the time and money.
It was just as she advertised!! Lovely rental with all the amenities you could ask for!! Located steps from the beach, restaurants, bars and shopping!! Gloria the owner was extremely hospitable even leaving a Aloha gift of fruit snacks and an embroidered hand towel! I HIGHLY recommend all types to stay there!! Pleasant surprise!!
It is a beautiful appointed condo with all the amenities. An easy walk to the beach and close to some yummy, reasonably priced for Hawaii, restaurants. The location is better than the Lahaina area for trips to the crater or road to Hana. Gloria, was very responsive to all my questions and an extremely thoughtful host.
We enjoyed everything about our stay at this fabulous condo. Entire unit was spotless CLEAN.. Gloria, the owner, communicated very quickly and was gracious to host our last minute stay, even letting us set our luggage and groceries into the unit early as we had checked out of a nearby unit that morning..
We didn't get a chance to prepare meals, but the newly remodeled unit and kitchen were fully equipped with everything a gourmet chef might desire. Did I mention CLEAN!!! Bathroom remodel is amazing. Love the built in shower bench, water pressure, and faucets.
The newly installed air conditioning was a welcomed treat as the weather was almost 90 degrees that week in Kihei.
This unit showcases the pride of local ownership. We were so impressed with Gloria and her darling personal touches throughout the condo - and the "sweet" surprises that she left for us. Thank you again!
My daughter and I look forward to visiting Maui soon, and will definitely check the calendar for this beautiful and very special unit. Everything PERFECT.
We loved going to the beach right across the street to watch the sunset. The beach chairs from the condo made it very comfortable. We walked to many restaurants and shops during our stay. Breakfast on the lanai was was very enjoyable:) The condo was comfortable. The air conditioning was great! We hope to stay here again.
Working with Gloria was great. She responded promptly, provided what was described and added in some unexpected treats.
Gloria went well out of her way to accommodate our needs. Beach is right down the street. Plus a market.
The location of this condo was perfect - directly across the beach and easy access to everything in Kihei. The place is exactly as described. Gloria was very responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
Fabulous location. Fabulous amenities.
It was a good condo, close to beach. Comfortable bed with good cotton sheets. No complains.
Unit was great as advertised. Close to the action but no street noise. Only negative, and certainly not specific to this unit, was that one morning a local rooster decided to start his activity around 3 am. If you are a light sleeper like me you might want to bring some earplugs! Otherwise a great stay.
We really enjoyed our stay. The ability to walk across the street to enjoy the beach and a short walk to shops and food was really nice.
The condo was lovely, air conditioning was so nice in the bedroom and living space and the welcome package was such a nice touch!
Only bad thing was the the rooster that we named Hei Hei - he couldn’t tell time and we got a wake up call at all hours each morning…. So bring ear plugs.
Gloria was a fabulous host! And her condo was everything we hoped for! The bed was super comfy, kitchen had everything we needed for some dinners in, the Lani was a sweet place to enjoy morning coffee and evening cocktails. We utilized the beach towels, chairs, and cooler everyday at our two favorite beaches right across the street. And the grounds are beautifully adorned with plumeria, hibiscus, and many more garden beauties. Finally, Gloria's extra welcoming goodies and helpfulness when we got in a jam went above an beyond! We truly hope to go back! Mahalo Gloria!
Very very nice! Gloria thinks of everything that u might need and provides it!! She goes overboard with a treat tray with a fresh pineapple, homemade banana bread, a box of chocolates, chips and more!! So sweet!! The condo is close to good restaurants and a sunset every day on the beach!! The lanai was such fun playing cards and dominoes on!! Had a great trip! We r coming back next year to stay at this same condo!!🌺☀️🌴
We have stayed in many beach houses around the world that we have found on Vrbo. This, by far, is one of our favorites!
Gloria is the perfect hostess, the welcome basket was a nice surprise and brought tears to my eyes! Fresh pineapple, banana bread, macadamia chocolates and the adorable personalized hand towel was pleasantly above and beyond the usual endless list of regulations that you typically find first when renting a place.
The condo is spotless and has everything you need. Beach chairs, coolers, ice packs, umbrella, beach towels, all included for your use. Dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo and sunscreen all there. The breeze on the fifth floor made it unnecessary to use the air conditioner. The pool was nice when afternoon winds made sitting on the beach difficult.
The view from the lanai was relaxing and wonderful. We went out to dinner one night and the rest of the nights brought food back to the condo to sit out and enjoy the view.
The location is perfect. Across the street are three of the best snorkeling beaches on the island. It was nice to park the car and be in walking distance for food, shopping, ice cream and of course shave ice. We drove around the entire island on our vacation and are convinced Kihei is the best spot to stay in.
It was our first trip to Hawaii, but we hope not our last. We would most definitely stay with Gloria again, I cannot think of one thing that we didn’t love!
Great to be back in Maui after 14 years.
Great location, walk to beaches, shops and restaurants. Clean and quiet location.
Owner was very helpful with information and welcome basket!
Gloria was wonderful and communicative. A fully stocked kitchen is always appreciated. She also left a binder with suggested things to do and see. The beach is right across the street which is so convenient. The bed was comfortable, air conditioner worked well, and the unit had everything we needed. The property was beautiful as well! We very much enjoyed our stay.
We had a wonderful time. The condo is in the middle of all the action, close to restaurants and groceries. The condo itself was was clean and nicely stocked. We appreciated the beach equipment
What an awesome spot. The location is perfect, a short 2 min walk to some fantastic beaches (with incredible snorkeling) and the unit itself was perfect. Very clean, tidy, and with all the amenities that you could ever want. All of the personal touches were wonderful and we truly felt welcomed during our stay. Could not recommend staying here enough!
Everything went smoothly and the place was nice.
We were very happy with the accommodations. This is all we needed to enjoy our time on Maui. An excellent value and highly recommended in the Kihei area!
Property was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need plus more. Owner is fabulous and very attentive. Would definitely stay here again.
An amazing host experience from beginning to end. The gift of basket goodies, but ultra comfy bed, the beach toys chairs and towels, the best! All I needed to do is hit the grocery store and the beach to have a great time. She was responsive and accommodating. We will be back!
The condo was beautifully decorated and had absolutely everything we could think of. It was clean and very well maintained. The goodies when we arrived set the welcoming tone for our time away. Loved having the chairs and umbrella available to take to the beach everyday that was just across the street! We will definitely be back!
This is my 2nd time staying in a property at the Kihei Akahi condo complex and my 1st time staying at Gloria's rental. I love this complex as it is so impeccably maintained and so close to everything. There is a great beach literally across the street, and plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The unit itself appears to have more recent renovations including having both split air A/C units in the living room and the bedroom (many of the other rentals there only have a small living room wall unit from what I can tell). There is a lovely ocean view from the exterior patio. The in-unit washer/dryer was a life saver. Even the included parking spot was a nice-sized end spot that my large rental SUV could fit in. Gloria also prepared some delicious welcome treats and even embroidered a custom towel which was so thoughtful! I will definitely book this unit again in the future.
This is a lovely condo, with lots of amenities.
Gloria was a very accommodating host! A personalized welcome gift was a unique touch and so appreciative of the home baked banana bread and pineapple for breakfast that first morning before I had time to get to the store. The condo was very clean and updated. King bed was comfortable and my kids thought the sofa sleeper was good too. Great location near the beach, dining, shopping and groceries. She had everything for the beachu right there at the condo. Pool was warm too!l
Property was very clean. location great, across the street from the beach. View from the balcony of the beach was great! Gloria very helpful in providing details on what was needed for traveling to Maui, as well as many suggestions for places to visit and to eat. We were happy with many of her ideas! Only issue was that bedroom was next to outside hallway, which was pretty noisy starting early in the morning.
My wife and I come to Maui often and always stay in Kihei. Our normal place was booked so of course we had to try a new place . WOW is the best reaction . I was worried at first because we like being on the street where we can hear the water at night . This place was perfect. Great view . Quiet, clean well kept grounds . The personal touches were great. The towel, banana bread , great cofffee and chocolate were nice . We will be back here for sure on our next trip . Hopefully it will be available. Thanks again Gloria for great accommodations.
When we arrived, the condo had some nice gifts to welcome us. The condo was spotless and well stocked with everything flashlights to beach chairs. The only damper was on my checkout day. Checkout is 11:00 AM. It was a few minutes after 11 and the owner came and bluntly said checkout was 11:00. I told her I was waiting for someone who was taking me to the airport. I literally left after she arrived, but she didn’t have to use the tone of her voice with me.
Gloria was great! Loved the personal touch! Easy to get to drive in and out to local places. Lots of places to eat within walking distance.
Such a great experience no complaints
The condo was very clean and had all the comforts of home. The host communicated all the details and was very helpful. She provided snacks and an awesome welcome basket on arrival :)
Everything was as advertised. The condo was close to the beach, the bed was very comfortable, all the appliances were new and in good working order, and there were extras like water in the frig when we got there. Gloria was always available and supplied us with many recommendations.
