The Kihei Akahi, opposite Kamaole II Beach Park is a fantastic property for both couples and families. Mere steps from the beach, the property features 2 pools, 2 barbeque and picnic areas, tennis courts, beautifully landscaped gardens, ample parking and onsite management and security.

Nearest Airport : Kahului at 16 Miles

Our one-bedroom condo, featuring a luxurious king sized bed, has a spacious open-galley kitchen. We did a complete renovation and refurbishment with new furniture, new appliances, new flooring, new bathroom and new kitchen in 2011. Every year since then, we have updated, maintained and refreshed the condo at least twice a year.

From the lanai of our Maui home on the third floor of the highly desired C Building, you look over the beautifully landscaped garden and across the lower pool to the ocean. Or, turn to the left and look over the upper pool to Haleakela - one of the two dramatic volcanos which created Maui. Kamaole II beach is mere steps from our door.

Our upgraded unit features tile flooring, new cabinets and granite countertop in the kitchen, new tiled walk-in shower in the bathroom with Bali beach stone flooring, new furniture and new painting and decor throughout. The condo is decorated in warm and welcoming colours which invoke the sand and shore. Sitting on the lanai, 2 levels up, there is almost a courtyard feeling in the middle of the lush tropical vegetation of the Kihei Akahi garden. It is a wonderfully zen place to have breakfast or coffee. The added benefit to our location is that the inside of the condo stays cool during the day as it avoids the direct sun. Open the windows and let the sea breeze in!

Everything you need for your Maui vacation is in the unit including linens, dishes & cutlery, cooking utensils, laundry, beach chairs and toys. Well, not everything. The beach and the sun are outside and the shops and restaurants of Kihei and Wailea are minutes away. We hope you enjoy your stay in our little piece of paradise.

In response to the wildfires which decimated Lahaina, 10% of our rental revenue is donated to Habitat for Humanity Maui. The lost ten brand new homes in the fire and we want to help rebuild them.

Fully Renovated: Fully Furnished: Newly Stocked: Continually Upgraded: We purchased and renovated this property in 2011 and wanted to make it really special for ourselves, - and for you!

A note on air conditioning. Our condo is well shaded from direct sunlight and does not get as hot inside as others do. Accordingly we have an air conditioner in the living room but not in the bedroom ( which faces north). With the windows open and the sea breezes blowing, the rooms are always a comfortable temperature. If you are the type of person who needs air conditioning no matter what, this condo may not be right for you.

A note on payment schedule. The default is a single payment at time of booking. If your stay is longer than 10 days and you would like to split the payment into two, please ask before you book and I will be happy to set that up for you. (Not available for Expedia bookings, Vrbo only due to system constraints)

A note on Vacation Rentals. This condo complex was originally built as a vacation rental in the resort destination of Kihei, Maui. It is designed with the traveller in mind and was never intended as long term residence for those who live and work on Maui. No one is being displaced and so there is no need to feel guilty.

The property was just as described with a variety of food and shops close by. Neal gave amazing communication before and during the trip.

Besides the well manicured grounds, the 2 swimming pools, tennis courts and friendly check-in service, we especially liked the close proximity to one of three beautiful beaches. We greatly appreciated the communication and overall concern for our pleasant stay from our landlord. We highly recommend this accommodation and will endeavor to book again in the future.

Neal’s condo is truly a slice of paradise. Location is perfect; right across the street from a beautiful white sand beach and walking distance from great food and shops. The condo is so clean, well furnished, with all the amenities. The couch in the living room is so comfortable with a view of a large flat screen tv. The kitchen has everything you need, including a dish washer! The bedroom is private and has a comfy king sized bed. The lanai is big with a table and four chairs and a gorgeous view of the ocean to the right and the mountains to the left. Below is a well manicured Hawaiian garden with beautiful trees to enjoy. Neal is truly the perfect host! Communication with him was easy and quick turn around. He is kind and generous! Thank you for sharing your incredible beach house ! We hope to back soon!

Perfectly located for different Maui activities around Kihei. Fully equipped for an easy stay. However some minor maintenanceNd new bed sheets needed as well as some beach equipment should be replaced.

We were very pleased with our condo and would happily return to #312 for our next trip to Kihei, Maui!

Great place to stay at Maui. Close to the beach and places to eat. Place was very quiet and nice to relax after a long day around the island.

The condo is good. It would have been great if the toilet wasn't so low. The toilet in this condo is very low. The top of the toilet was below my knees and I'm 5'7" tall. If you have bad knees or any mobility issues I'd recommend someplace else. The shower is great only a small lip to step over. I'm disabled and had to buy a mobility accessable potty chair in order to use the toilet in this condo. With the negative out of the way let's focus on the good. Sitting on the deck you can see the ocean and the mountains. Having my coffee outside in the morning was fantastic! The condo is walking distance to Fred's and Penny's Pizza. (I used my walker and I was fine). When their where no kids in the pool it was good. Too many kids and too many floating toys was too much for me. Neal and Jared provided us with a wonderful VRBO and it made our trip to Maui very special. Thank you

My husband and I loved our stay at this property. The condo was spotless, had all the amenities we would want and the location was excellent! We loved having coffee/breakfast on the lanai as well as a relaxing drink after spending the days exploring the island and beaches. The whales were out in huge numbers this year and we could even spot some from the lanai. We made great use of the chairs/umbrella and coolers that were provided as we enjoyed the beaches across the street and also those we drove to. The location could not have been better!! To be able to just walk a few hundred meters to the beach and not worry about parking etc... priceless. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance as well. Overall, this condo was perfect and we would highly recommend it. We will definitely book this condo the next time we visit Maui. Mahalo Neal and Joe! Hope to be back sooner than later!!

We booked the condo and found out shortly afterward that it had mistakenly been double booked. Neal quickly remedied the situation by working with another owner in the facility and getting us a very nice replcement unit after we agreed to it. He was a great communicator and made everything right if it wasn't. Thanks, Neal, for being a great rental owner!

This was our 3rd stay at the Akahi and the second time in this unit. Felt like we were back home! It is so nice to know everything we need is in the condo waiting for us. We made a choice to limit eating out this trip and the kitchen served us well for prepping all our meals. Costco has a great selection of pre-cooked proteins that made home cooking a breeze. I think that a morning cup of coffee on the lanai overlooking the beautiful landscapes is the best part of the day - so peaceful and is a great way to start the day. Then off to check out the beach of the day…too many to choose from! Neal is a wonderful host. Checks in to make sure all is well and is quick to respond to when needed. It was really sad to leave even though we had 12 great days. Hopefully next time my brain functions better when packing to go home 😜.

First things first, Neal is truly an outstanding host! Great communicator and pleasant to deal with. We could feel that he genuinely cared that our stay would be the best it could be. And we did have a great stay! The condo is tremendously well located. A great beach is right across the street and several others just a short walk or drive away. Lots of shops and restaurants also nearby. The development is well kept and the grounds are beautiful. On site management, 2 pools and BBQs. It was quiet at night and we always felt safe. We found everything we needed in the condo which was spotlessly clean on arrival. The updated kitchen is stylish and the living room and dining area are well furnished. The bedroom mattress was very comfortable and we appreciated the safe also located in the bedroom. From the lanai, we enjoyed several sunsets looking out to the ocean. Highly recommended. Mahalo Neal and hope to stay again one day.

This is a great location, walk to beach and shops. Unit was clean and had so many extras like chairs, coolers, umbrella, boogie and surf board, even some snorkeling gear. Communication was great with Neal. Sad to leave.

Apartment Older but very well equipped and maintained. Ideal location with beautifully landscaped immaculate grounds and amenities. Host very responsive and helpful.

This condo is updated and well appointed with every comfort you need. They even had beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas etc. to set you up for the beach! This ideal Kihei location is across from Kamaole II Beach which was a wonderful place to swim, boogie board, and we even had several turtle sightings! A handful of restaurants are on the same block. Within a few minutes drive there are shops and more restaurants and beaches. We love the overall proximity of Kihei, not far from either Wailea or Lahaina and most adventures in Maui. The staff was friendly and helpful. The owner exhibited superior hospitality and information. The complex has pools, BBQ areas, and tennis court. Everything is well maintained. Enjoy your stay here you won’t be disappointed, we highly recommend!

This is a great condo to stay in while in South Maui. It is clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated ( with a bit of Hawaiian kitsch!). The owners obviously take great pride in their place and are easy to work with. The gardens at the condo complex are amazing - so lush and beautiful. Easy walking distance to some great restaurants and very easy access to the options in Kihei triangle and Wailea. I definitely hope this condo is available next time I go to Maui!

The pictures don't really do justice to this fantastic unit. Neal made the booking and check-in process really easy and everything was well organized and super clean when we arrived. We spent every morning at the beach across the street and even saw a sea turtle! We really appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella and the fully stocked kitchen meant we could do breakfasts and lunches at the unit and splurge on dinners out. There are three restaurants right next door so we didn't have to go far. A great way to get back into travel after all this craziness!

Really enjoyed this property. If you have not traveled to the islands, it is note worthy that there is limited a/c in this condo. With careful fan placement, keeping the blinds closed in the afternoon and a lucky change in the weather we were able to get more comfortable towards the end of the stay. I was prepared for the heat so not too much of an issue for me but our 3 yr old struggled a bit. The view and location more than make up for the warm bedroom.
