Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The place was old, has probably not been updated since original build? 50 years ?. The bathroom very small, tiling cracked and chipped, no air conditioning, the bed was small ( just regular double bed) . Not a great place for cooking, very few dishes. No comfortable chairs to relax on in the living room. It was not cleaned very well. Fans, curtains, mirrors were very dirty. Sand in the unit. The price should have reflected the units value...it was way overpriced. It was a place to stay that did the job. No one was in the unit that long. The view was nice but not worth the price. Would recommend to someone knowing the condition it was in and hoping they weren’t expecting a lot from it.

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We arrived 11:00pm at night. Easy instruction to get in the apartment but disappointing that there was no cold water in the fridge as we arrived late.The place is very outdated but that did not bother us. What bothered us is the fact that we rented the place for two weeks and there was only one roll of paper towel and two rolls of toilet paper. There were only for 4 loads supply for the washer/dryer and dishwasher. As I mentioned we stayed two weeks. Check out time was 10:00 am most places are 11:00 am

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: What we loved - 6th floor location - great views of whales in morning and sunset at night. Really nice balcony we enjoyed very much. Also the location is great. Beach across the street is GREAT for snorkling, swimming, body surfing, sun lounging. Sand really fine and soft. Also breakfast place on street and Moose's for easy restaurant access. This condo is a great deal. Sure it wasn't fancy, but bed was good, dishwasher, fridge, washer dryer all worked. Had things like rice cooker and coffee pot we used lots. Stove and microwave worked good. Shower old tile but clean, slightly damaged fixtures but they worked. NO AC but we didn't mind as nice breeze flows from bedroom to living room being on the 6th floor. We didn't expect anything fancy and it was not fancy but we did expect it to be functional and clean and for the most part it was. There were dust bunnies under the dressers we had to move due to item falling behind it, but no cockroaches, no stinky things. What we didn't like- 10am check out time sucks. It should be noon. Also pull out bed mattress needs replacing. TV's and cable were hard to figure out to be sure. We have stayed here before and know it is well kept property with good security, beautiful landscaping, good parking, great location, fantastic views from 6th floor. We love this place for the price we got it at it was the ONLY deal left on maui. Everything else in Hawaii has gone crazy in price including 150 resort fees at hotels for one night, and 9$ for a loaf of bread?!!! Taxes and resort fees, and restaurant and food prices have made Kihei VERY EXPENSIVE. Our Condo was a fair price and we really appreciate that. NOTHING ELSE IN HAWAII IS PRICED FAIRLY THESE DAYS, so we will probably go to Fiji next trip, but we could not complain about the condo. Pool bbq's are good, pools good, parking good. Easy to get to. There are nicer places around but for the price this place can not be beat as far as this cowboy is concerne

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with wonderful views of the sunset and whales with easy access to beautiful beaches, this is the property for you. The condo has friendly neighbors. It was perfect for days on the beach and exploring the island.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I've traveled to Maui for over 20 yrs and this condo has the best view I've ever seen! Your view from the lanai is from the West Maui Mtns all the way down to the hill by Big Beach! Spectacular for whale watching! The unit itself is a bit dated, but who goes on vacation for appliances?! Overall, everything was clean enough and functioned well. There's also a nice assortment of spices and a rice cooker, both of which are surprisingly rare in vacation rentals! The only drawback is the lanai could use a sunshade, as in the afternoon, the sun is shining directly on you. Hoping one will be added soon, along with a keypad entry (physical keys can be a nuisance on vacation!).I've stayed at different units in the Akahi, you cannot beat the location. Close to all the best beaches, and you can walk to all the nearby shops and restaurants. My friend and I liked it so much, we've already booked for next year :)

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Over the last 15 -20 years we have stayed in many different units at Kihei Akahi. The loacation is perfect for us with the proximity to the KAMAOLE BEACHES, and we love the grounds. D604 was in the worst shape of any we have rented. The frontdoor fram is splintered, screws stripped out of doorknob and some hinges. It was a battle to get in the frontdoor everytime, until I pulled the screw out and just used the deadbolt. The cleaning fee has about doubled in the last 2 years, the place was not very clean. Sheets were very stained.Beach towels fraying, Everything so worn and tired. reminded me of my first apartment, nothing matched. The lanai is the best part of this unit. We called Hawaii Life, they referred us to the local host Lara. She was very apologetic and offered to line up repairs while we were on island. This was a very short trip for us, only 5 days. All 5 were precious to us, and declined that offer. Lara informed us that this unit is scheduled to be renovated later this summer. I would avoid this unit until then.Lara was empathic and understanding of our situation. She is an asset to the company and the renter. On a side note I emailed Hawaii Life and asked if this unit had beach gear (chairs, cooler). They responded that it did not. I rented a gear package from Aunties snorkel. There are chairs, umbrella and cooler in the closet, just saying.

Wonderful location…walking distance to some good food eateries, good beach just across the street….great amenities-3 boogie boards, beach chairs and beach umbrella. Two different sized coolers. Great view from lanai as you have your morning coffee and papaya and pineapples. Also wonderful view of sunsets from the lanai. All in all, the perfect place…..

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is a great little apartment with fantastic views. It was our home for two months and we were very happy with it.The town of Kihei is a bit of an endless strip mall, only it's right by the beach. You'll need a car to go most places but there are a number walkable and bikeable establishments nearby.

View is even better than you can tell from the pictures. Quiet, good location, clean. Comfortable bed, I have a bad back and this was nice to have. Would definitely stay here again

This property has a fantastic view and was appropriately priced for the fact it was a touch out dated. We have rented from VRBO and at this location multiple times and typically find them to be clean. Our most recent say the place was dirty, I consider this more of an anomaly then typical as we typically fine. Had a great time, would recommend this location

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a mainly positive experience in Unit D604 at Kihei Akahi. The location is fantastic and the view from this top floor unit is incredible.This whole property is clean and well maintained. Unit D604 has everything needed for relaxing stay but is definitely in need of updating. We visited friends staying in other units and it is obvious that this unit hasn't had much changed since it was built.The patio door is hard to move and obviously needs new wheels installed. There were 2 old folding lawn chairs that need to be replaced as the webbing is rotten. The bedroom is very bright and could use curtains on the windows. These are items that that could easily be addressed.Overall, though, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return if these things were addressed.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
