We enjoyed our vacation in this place.
We had a comfortable stay at this property. It is convenient to several beaches and I walked across the street to the beach every day.There are local restaurants and bars within walking distance as well. Lovely sunsets off the front balcony walkway if you don't want to walk to the beach.
I had a wonderful stay here! The apartment complex was directly across the street from a fantastic beach, walking distance to cafes and shaved ice and the 2 pools were fantastic!
Pictures don’t do this place justice, I was pleasantly surprised that the condo looked better than what is listed.
Only note was that the wifi doesn’t work in the bedroom and the A/C is only in the living area. Although the ceiling fan worked well.
We had a wonderful 12 day stay at the condo. Close to beach and pool. Pull out couch was good for our teen son. Main bedroom was large, but could have used a better lighting. Kitchen was equipped with basic supplies. Blender was a bonus.
Overall great condo and would recommend staying there.
Nice location with no frills. The lanai had a nice view.
This is a very nice condo with a great location near the beach. One large negative was the poor TV remote operation. The book described how to get onto Spectrum for cable but Spectrum wasn't working. New TV?? Then the remote that worked for a day or so died. We changed its batteries with another remote (triple A's_ and it worked but we only got Netflix and a bunch of news stations.
Apartment is clean, everything was as expected. Great location - beach right across, multiple beaches within short drive. Lot of shopping and restaurants in walking distance.
Decent views of the ocean from the balcony.
Super location, well appointed kitchen. The unit was well stocked with quality beach gear too- snorkles, fins boogie boards chairs coolers etc. The only reason a 4 star rating on communication was because the unit number/ address was not provided with the door code for check in. But that was quickly rectified.
Be advised, this unit is near the elevators and the bedroom louvered windows need to be open for airflow meaning you hear all conversations of guests getting on/off the elevators. For us, the great views made up for it. We would still choose this unit again.
All bedrooms in the complex are located with that orientation. The ones closest to the elevators would be the loudest.
Great place to stay. Central location, great view.
Wonderful property manager!
Thank you for your kindness.
Quite good condo. I have stayed in other units in this building. The items in the condo could use a bit of updating. 3 of the 4 beach chairs in the bedroom cupboard are broken. There is only 1 wine glass in the kitchen along with a bit of a mish mash of dishes and utensils. The freezer door is misaligned causing the freezer to ice up quite badly. The view from the 5th floor Lanai of the ocean and sunset is quite spectacular. Although sparsely furnished, everything you need is there and we enjoyed our stay very much.
Pros: Well stocked kitchen. Great location - a short walk to the beach, a quick drive up S. Kihea to places, just around the corner from the turnoff to Rt 31. Clean. Can see the ocean and mountain from the Lanai. Lots of beach stuff.
Cons: A/C is only in living room. Bedroom can get warm.
Other cons are not the owners fault: roosters crow at 4 AM, bedroom wall is on the hallway, and you can hear rude loud people in the hall.
Overall, I would give this place two thumbs up and a smile. I had a great stay.
This was one of the best condos we've stayed at.
Everything you'd have at your own house was provided here, along with beach chairs, mats, body boards, etc...
The condo complex has two pools, parking, and is across from Kamaole Beach Park 2.
We would stay here again if we visited Maui again.
This was a lovely little unit in a condo complex right across the street from the Kamaole Beach and the ocean. All the right amenities, including fridge, microwave, washing machine, dryer, smart TV and beach towels! Natalie and John were always quick to respond to any questions. Wish there was a central AC, but I guess that's not very common, and the AC in the living room was fine. If we're back in Maui, we'll certainly see if we can stay here again.
the freezer door had been left open prior to our arrival and was frosted over; could not close;
very sand free floors
Unit was perfect located! You could see the ocean from lanai. There is a beautiful courtyard area and tons of little birds chriping! We were impressed by the level of cleanliness. The unit is a bit older and could use a bit of upgrade a fresh coat of paint would go a long way for this unit but it is well kept, has a nice a kitchen with everything you could need. Even had beach chairs and other beach equipment. Towels were limited so if there are more than 2 of you, you will have to wash towels frequently. Furniture has that old Hawaii feel to it. All in all we were very comfortable.
Nice location nice property.
Great restaurants nearby. Beautiful sunsets.
The partial ocean view from the lanai was beautiful for the morning coffee. We liked that the bedroom was separate from the remainder of the unit.
Plenty of gear for us to use, like coolers, beach chairs as well a snorkel gear.
Clean and well kept.
The property is just as described and everything was provided. The kitchen is well stocked with regard to oil and spices. It was also great to have beach chairs and masks and snorkels at our disposal, including two coolers. The bed was super comfortable as was the pull out sofa bed. It was a pleasure working with the owner/manager and we would definitely stay there again. Mahalo
2. the shutter windows on the patio were absolutely filthy...
3. Towels were very scarce -2 bath and 2 beach
4 .no change of sheets for king bed in 17 days...
5, The kitchen supplies should be organized for use of vacationers...
6. 1 Tea towel for drying dishes..
Kihei Akahi is the best location with proximity to so many great places. This unit has everything you need. Will stay here again.
The rental was easy to book and the location was fantastic - right in the heart of Kihei and right across from the beach. Also, the partial ocean view from the lanai was beautiful. My only critique of this stay is the level of cleanliness. The floors were filthy! They may have been vaccuumed but i'd be pressed to believe the floors were steamed or even mopped. Custom is to take your shoes off at the door, which is totally fine, but then to have a floor so dirty that our socks or bottom of our feet were black is not. We tried our best to clean with chlorox wipes and we eventually decided to invest in a pair of house slippers because walking barefoot inside was quite off putting. Some of the dishes were not clean in the cabinet and the several cabinet door handles were sticky. The shower curtain was flimsy and dirty at the bottom. It was a single plastic curtain so cheap, they could replace it after every stay(im talking dollar store shower curtain). There was no fan/ exhaust in the shower/ toilet room but that may be because it's on older property and perhaps none of the units have these? Also there was no smoke detector. These are the dirty details. For the price of the cleaning fee, I really expect a throughly cleaned unit. I'm sure the staff is urged to clean fast due to turnover but I urge them to take more time to clean throughly.
Also, there was plenty of great gear for us to use, like coolers, beach chairs as well a snorkel gear - that was a great amenity. We only used the AC unit a couple of times during our 2 week stay, and to have the option was clutch!
Nice location would stay again
The condo had everything for an excellent stay by the beach. The location is perfect in Kihei, across from Kamaole II. We enjoyed the beach items, lanai, and dedicated parking spot.
not much for words we had a good time
