We are thrilled to present 'Palekaiko' at Kihei Akahi - our little piece of 'paradise' on Maui!

A two-bedroom, two-bath condo, 'Palekaiko' is suited to families, multi-generational families and is even a great fit for couples, a guys-only golf getaway or girls-only beach escape! Our hale (home) is a wonderful place where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets, warm trade winds and fabulous white sandy beaches only steps from your door. Enjoy your morning Kona coffee on our ground-floor walk-out lanai surrounded by lush tropical plants and manicured lawns.

The Kihei Akahi Resort is a quiet and secure complex that has two swimming pools and barbeque areas and a tennis court. Centrally located, this beautifully landscaped complex is located in sunny South Kihei where only six to eight inches of rain a year and a consistent 75-90 degrees (25-32 degrees Celsius) almost assuring you of a warm, relaxing sunny vacation.

Our family-friendly condo is fully equipped and we are so happy to announce that "Palekaiko" is now fully renovated with the recent complete overhaul of our kitchen! The bamboo cabinet bases are topped with the beautiful "Quartet" quartz countertop, off-set by the classic grey subway backsplash. The white cabinet uppers keep the kitchen light and bright! Brand-new appliances include a Bosch fridge and dishwasher and a GE gas range. We also have a full-sized Bosch washer and dryer, and a Samsung "Whisper" wall-mounted split-system air conditioning unit.

Furnishings in the primary bedroom are Pier 1 and the guest bedroom has a custom murphy bed and queen-sized bed with a matching headboard. The primary ensuite is roomy, in an effort to make it easier for people with mobility issues to manage, we removed the wall between the vanity & toilet/shower area, we installed a wider door, a 'comfort' height toilet and a low profile shower tray. The guest bathroom has a bathtub, a must for families with little ones!

Living and dining room furnishings are by Ratana, providing Palekaiko with an 'Island' flavour. We no longer have Hawaiian-style louvered windows, we have energy-efficient, double-glazed Low-E windows that keep our suite cooler and quieter. Our patio set on the lanai brings the comfort outside. We also supply beach toys, beach chairs, beach towels, mats and even a cooler to make your beach experience the best!

Thank you Della and Keith for providing my family a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. The location was perfect. Close to all the amenities we needed! Your response and kindness during the wildfires and allowing my family to stay longer in your unit will never be forgotten. Thank you for your hospitality.

This place was absolutely perfect for my family on our first trip to Maui. The location was excellent, property was clean and felt safe. Kitchen had everything we needed and some. Beds were comfy, plenty of towels and awesome items needed for our days at the beach. I cant say enough great things about this property! Thank you Della!

The place was perfect. There was plenty of items in the kitchen to make meals or prep left overs. The location was a short walk to the beach and local restaurants. The owner sent an excellent write up of how to get to the place and how to register for parking. She also include what to do if you arrived late, which happened to us. There was plenty of info on where to shop and other actin. The on site staff were also very friendly and helpful. We had an amazing time and are looking forward to going back.

We enjoyed our stay so much. It truly was a home away from home. Everything you could possibly need, they had. Having the beach across the street was awesome! We loved Beach Street shave ice which was right down the road. We would stay there again without hesitation.

We had wonderful time at Palekaiko. The condo was very clean, well equipped with everything you may need. The location is great, just a short walk to the beach. The condo has a very convenient parking spot reserved for guests. Della is a wonderful host, she was very quick in responding to all our questions. She sent us very helpful information prior to our stay about all the things we may do in Maui, restaurants, events, beaches. Della was also very attentive to our needs and went above and beyond our expectation at the end of our stay. We really enjoyed our stay and we would stay here again in the future. Highly recommend!

This was our fourth stay at Kihei Akahi and our first in Della's unit. Della is a pleasure to communicate with and answers questions quickly. The condo is steps away from the pool/BBQ area in a cozy corner in building D. Everything you could possibly need is supplied in the kitchen; the best equipped one we have ever encountered. Beach toys, beach towels, chairs etc. are also provided. We found the bedrooms to be warm but we are super cool sleepers so that is a subjective comment. The AC in the living room does a great job cooling the main living space. The parking spot is very close to the unit which makes unloading groceries etc. very easy. We love ground floors and this one was no exception. It was wonderful to be able to exit from the lanai as it locked with a key - saves walking around to the other side of the building and using an elevator. The condo is a 3 minute walk to the beach (Kam 2) and the grounds are lovely. Good security on site as well. Walking to restaurants and shopping is an added bonus. Don't hesitate to rent from Della. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again for sure!

We had a lovey stay here! The lanai was perfect and the proximity to the pool and beach could not be beat. The condo was exceptionally comfortable. Our son absolutely loved being able to explore the grassy area next to the lanai with lots of birds and lizards to see. Della and Keith were warm and very communicative. Would stay again for sure.

Our family enjoyed our stay in this condo. The location is great as it’s next to many restaurants, food trucks and right across the street from the beach. Our boys enjoyed the pool after a long day at the beach. We would stay here again!!!

We love this part of Kihei and try to stay here as often as possible. This ground floor condo was perfect for accessing the pool, and an easy walk down to a great swimming beach, restaurants, and stores. Della was super helpful/responsive. Overall a wonderful stay!

This condo was lovely and well equipped. We had plenty of room, there are tons of beach toys and the patio opens up to the grass and a few steps to the pool. The beach is just across the street, which was awesome and we went every day. There are several good food options that even kids can walk to. The condo was just what we needed. AC and easy parking were a plus. Nice washer/dryer. Kihei was not my favorite though. The main drive can get busy at times and the flow of traffic and people can be congested. Besides the beautiful beach across the street, we did do a lot of driving around. Book your tours well in advance as many book up. If you go see whales, don't miss the Maui Ocean Center 3D exhibit, it's a must. We had a great trip, thank you!

We had a wonderful time in Maui. Della was easy to communicate with and shared lots of good information to enhance our stay. The pool was steps from the condo and beach right across the street. Loved having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, perfect for our family of 4. We hope to be back soon!

We had a great time at Della's condo for 2 weeks in Feb/Mar 2022. There was just enough room for my husband and I, plus our 3 children. The murphy bed was great! Della was thorough in her instructions and details, and we didn't need a thing before, during, or after our stay. The condo had everything we needed. It was well equipped kitchen-wise, (we mainly cooked at the condo and barbequed), bathroom-wise (plenty of towels), and ocean-wise (4 or maybe 5 chairs, boogie boards, etc). We just had to purchase laundry detergent and more toilet paper while we were there. There are only 4 beach towels, and 5 of us, but we made do, it wasn't a big deal. We found the condo to run a bit hot, we didn't get much of a breeze with the patio open. But we didn't try leaving the front door open, so maybe that would have done the trick. We were conscious not to use the AC very much. The trek through the complex from the strip to the condo can sometimes be a bit much if you have small children or mobility issues or you're just really out of shape, after a long day, as the condo is set back quite far in the complex. However, there is the option to use the patio door, which cuts the trek a bit, and it's literally just STEPS from the pool/bbq. Nice grassy area to access off the lanai if you want. It's an awesome corner-ish unit in a super nice, quiet location in the complex, with a great parking spot. Perfect location too, literally right across from Kam II beach crosswalk. And so close to Fred's, the pub and the cinnamon roll place! Not much to really complain about, it was a fabulous stay!

We loved staying at this super clean, quiet condo that was close to the beach and restaurants. We walked to breakfast most mornings, even snorkel rental was in walking distance. This place had everything we needed…boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, cooler, sand toys and kitchen had everything we needed to cook several meals. The owner was super quick to respond to my questions and provided so much great info about Maui. We hope to be back here again!! Thanks for an amazing stay!!

We absolutely loved every minute of our stay here! The condo is updated with a beautiful new kitchen, is very clean and has everything you need to enjoy a great vacation (boogie boards, sun umbrella, beach chairs, some snorkeling gear, beach toys and even a cooler!) It was the perfect place to come home to after a day of sightseeing and enjoying the beautiful beaches (we swam with sea turtles!). The location in South Kihei is perfect and the complex is quiet. It's right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and stores. The hosts are very nice and easy to communicate with and super accommodating. You can tell that they love this place by the way everything is set up and taken care of! It's no wonder it gets booked quickly! We would love to come back and stay here again!!

This condo was perfect for our family of four. It was very clean and Della, the host has thought of everything you might need. We enjoyed heading out for our adventures and then returning for happy hour sunset/walk down to Kamole II Beach everyday. We would recommend this more affordable option for small families who are looking for a nice easy getaway. Della was very easy to connect with and accommodating. The unit is located on the ground floor which made access to the pool, grill and loading the car VERY convenient. We really enjoyed our stay!

Our family loved staying at Palekaiko! We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at the beach right across the street. Coffee, restaurants and shops are only a few minutes walk away. And it is the perfect location for exploring all that Maui has to offer. Thank you Della for sharing your space and being such a considerate host. We will definitely recommend staying here and hope to visit again! Mahalo and aloha!

The unit is immaculate, filled with all the amenities you might need. Proximity to the beach is excellent, the beach itself was a great beach for swimming and snorkeling. The pool was great, although having some young children we felt a bit conspicuous to make sure that they didn’t disturb others. Excellent location, wonderful staff. Would definitely stay here again

Communication with Della made things so much easier with all of the Covid restrictions. Without her help, I'm sure we would have missed a step! The home itself is beautiful and location perfect. Would definitely love to stay here again.

We rented this unit for a family trip and it far exceeded our expectations. The unit is clean a s very spacious with beautiful updates in the kitchen and bath. The pool is right outside the door and the grounds are beautiful. The beach is directly across the street and is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. We found the reef to the left near the rocks and enjoyed swimming with sea turtles for hours! Shops and restaurants that we had researched before coming ended up being within a block of the condo as well! The location couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

This spot was a great location. It was walking distance to everything I needed, the beach, restaurants, and bars. I was working from home while vacationing and this was the perfect spot. The internet wasn’t an issue, especially with nonstop video calls. The AC was strong, only downside is, there wasnt an AC unit in the bedrooms so we kept the bedroom doors open at night.
