WELCOME TO OUR ISLAND HOME WITH MITSUBISHI DUAL AIR-CONDITIONING IN THE LIVING ROOM AND BEDROOM!!
PLEASE NOTE: This condo is located in Kihei, 45 minutes south of the recent Lahaina town fire zone.
Your escape to Maui begins with a stay in this beautifully remodeled one-bedroom condo located at the Kihei Akahi in sunny south Kihei, situated directly across the street and a short 5-minute walk from this unit to Kamaole Beach II, one of Maui's best swimming and sunning beaches and walking distance to several popular restaurants and shops. The complex consists of four buildings, 240 individually owned units on 6-1/2 acres of lush, manicured grounds with beautiful tropical foliage. An on-site manager's office, full-sized tennis court and two barbecue areas with gas barbecues are located on property. Enjoy a cool and refreshing swim in one of two sparkling pools.
You will love this ocean view condo with panoramic views of the Pacific, west Maui mountains and Maalaea bay. Enjoy peaceful mornings on your private lanai gazing at the ocean or relax with an evening cocktail while taking in spectacular sunset views over the ocean. During winter months (December to mid-April) Humpback whales may be seen as they make their annual migration south so don't forget to bring your binoculars.
This one-bedroom, one-bath condo accommodating two people, provides 655 square feet of living space and is located on the 4th floor of the highly desirable "D" Building (really the 5th floor due to building design), at the back of the property and away from the main road. There are two elevators in this building, and you will have your own free assigned parking space plus the convenience of keyless entry to the unit. The moment you walk through the front door you will be drawn to the amazing ocean views to the west. From the lanai you can also view Molokini to the south, west Maui mountains and Maalaea bay to the north. This remodeled unit has a welcoming and comfortable feel with its beautiful furnishings and finishes, bamboo cabinetry, granite counters, tiled floors and oversized walk-in tiled shower.
Guests will be happy to know that we have Mitsubishi split air-conditioning in this unit with separate air handlers in the living room and bedroom. You will want a/c in the bedroom for those very hot days. NOT ALL units at this property or on Maui have air-conditioning in the bedroom so you will be assured of sleeping comfortably. In response to a past guest’s review in 2020, we have had the two air handler condensation pumps replaced and the noise issue has been resolved.
All the modern conveniences of home are offered in this unit with a newly purchased (May 2021) Simmons Beautyrest Hybrid 15” California King sized mattress and bed frame, cable TV, free high-speed Wi-Fi, washer/dryer, and a well-stocked kitchen, gas stove, refrigerator, new Bosch Ascenta dishwasher, and microwave. There is a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the living room purchased in December, 2021. Dual paned windows in both the living room and bedroom help keep this unit cooler and minimize any outside noise. They also provide for more visual appeal as there are no jealousy windows to obstruct the beautiful ocean view. This unit accommodates a maximum of 4 people.
We are new owners of this unit as of November, 2019 with our first VRBO guests staying in January, 2020. As previous owners of a unit in north Kihei from 2015-2019 we are proud to say that we earned a solid 4.8 out of 5 on 74 reviews from past guests. We take great pride in providing our guests with the kind of experience we expect as guests ourselves, traveling to Maui at least three times a year to check on the condition of the unit. It would be our pleasure to have you be our guest in this beautiful unit at the Kihei Akahi!

This was an ideal location for those who are looking to explore the island. Centrally located and clean. Everything we needed was provided and I would highly recommend staying here
We have enjoyed our stay. Everything was as advertised. The owners are exceptional to work with.They have furnished there home with quality kitchen ware and bedding is top notch. Our daughter stayed a few days with us and commented on how comfortable the sofa sleeper was. We go home happy with our choice of this rental unit. KIHEL AKAHI is very well-maintained and beautiful.
The condo was very clean and exactly as described. Very convenient location being right across from Kam 2 beach access. Location was very walkable to everything Kihei has to offer. The Kihei food oasis had some of the best food trucks(Thai Mee Up, El Carrito, Roll Me Up, Howzit Eh) I’ve ever had. We miss staying at the condo already!
Good location in Kihie, across the road from one of the best beaches and walking distance to cafes, bars and coffee
The rental unit exceeded our expectations. The unit was well appointed, excellent condition, clean, and well stocked. The AC units were perfect in the 80 degree weather and very efficient. Everything you needed was there. The condo grounds are extremely well maintained in a botanical garden setting. The sunsets from the balcony lanai were awesome every evening. The no smoking policy was excellent with smoking areas well away from the units. Communication with the hosts was fantastic. Recommend this property highly. A great place to explore Maui from.
My grandson and I have had a wonderful time during our stay. The condo is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is very well appointed for cooking meals in. The view was wonderful and we loved that we could watch the sunset from our lanai. There is a view of the pool so it was easy to see if there were other kids for him to swim with but far enough that we didn't hear any pool noise. We also loved that we were close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants and stores but that Building D sets back far enough to not hear any road noise. The grounds are also beautiful. We will definitely be back!
I was so happy with our stay! Clean, close to restaurants, snorkeling, markets and a great view. Nice and cool with great a/c. We would come back again!
Nice and clean, good location.
Very well appointed and comfortable in a convenient location. View from the lanai and interior was exactly as pictured in the rental information
Great location steps away from the beach and many restaurants. The condo is the best stocked condo we have stayed at and the condo is clean, updated and modern. This property lives up to the pictures and the sunsets from the lanai are great.
Paul & Sherry have a great place in a great location. I came back for a second stay at their unit because I really appreciate how well-organised and appointed their condo is. There is everything you need for a lovely stay in Kihei. My favourite place to be was watching whales and the sunset from their Lanai. Communication with the lovely hosts is also friendly and responsive. It doesn’t get better than this!
This unit is very nicely updated, organized and was very clean. It is in a nice location that has shops, restaurants and beaches within close walking distance. The owners have also provided all the beach accessories you could need – beach chairs, umbrella, noodles, boogie boards, coolers, etc. It has a lovely view of the grounds and the ocean. We saw whales right from the lanai. The air conditioners and the fans made it a very comfortable temperature. We would also like to compliment the bed as it was perfect for us. We would stay here again!!
We really enjoyed staying in this unit! It was just as described, if not better. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. The view of the ocean was awesome. We were so happy there were coolers and beach chairs. We used them almost everyday of our 2 week stay. We left some sand toys… they were hard to find on the island! We love staying at this property in general because of its proximity to Kam II and restaurants.
