Very nice quiet property. Nice ocean view close to kameloe beach II and restaurants. We enjoyed the pool in the evenings and walks on the beach in the mornings. Very good yoga class at Mana Kai resort within walking distance.
We put the patio to good use, a wonderful view of the ocean and mountains, as well as we can see Molokini from the patio.
The condo complex is quiet and very well-maintained, they even provide you with a map of and information about all of the plants on the property. Tennis and Pickleball are both available. We did not use the pools because the ocean is so close and welcoming. We saw many others in the pool and barbecue areas.
The condo itself is well laid out, nicely furnished, the bed is very comfortable, and the breeze moves from the front to the back making it so you don’t need to run the air conditioner (we only ran the ac in the bedroom at night).
Nice, big smart TV in living room. We did not use the pull out couch in the living room for sleeping, but sitting on it it’s a bit lumpy, could probably use to be replaced.
Ice maker on fridge is awesome and the owner provides a couple freezer packs for taking the provided cooler to the beach as well. Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkel gear (we had our own) is all available and in great shape (thanks!).
All in all, being across the street from the beach, just up the driveway, and having the amenities as well as dining, so close, makes this a perfect location to come back to. Oh, snorkeling off Kam II beach is awesome, saw a turtle, an eel, and tons of fish!
This place had everything we needed for beach trips including coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards. Its location and view were perfect. The toilet seat was broken when we arrived, they replaced it within 24hrs. The bed and couch were not super comfortable, but the location made up for it. Floors were sandy and lots of decorations made the place seem smaller than it was. Kitchen had most everything we needed. Pool and beach access were great. For 2 people it worked and was a great way to stay by the beach and not spend too much.
This was a great clean condo with a wonderful view. The living room furniture is a bit worn out/uncomfortable, the bathroom is fairly small and the mattress is very firm but you are looking for great location in Kihei I would recommend this location.
This condo is in a great location. The owner was quick to respond to my inquires. The kitchen is well equipped and appears to be remodeled. The bed is comfortable and there is air conditioning in the bedroom and living room, although not needed with the cool breeze. The couch and chair in living room, are in need of replacement. I would stay here again.
50% of this condo I would rate top marks. Bed, kitchen, view.
50% of the rest, was very dissappointing. The living room furniture was so worn, you had to put pillows on top to sit on anything. The hide a bed had you sitting on springs. The lanai table was a woven plastic, which was warped so you couldn’t safely put a glass on it.
The management team was attentive and quick to respond.
Please, replace the furniture, and make this a 5* property!
Lovely views of the sunsets. Great access to the beach and a quiet spot!
Perfect location in Kihei. The place itself was nice and can see the ocean from the patio. We were very happy with our 2 week stay.
This was an awesome stay. My brother and I needed somewhere, last minute, for a wedding. This was a wonderful quiet property. Awesome balcony view of the ocean, walking distance to the water and other stores/eateries. The place was clean and very spacious and had everything we needed for an enjoyable time. Highly recommended.
We continue, at each visit, to be be thoroughly impressed and pleased with the way the property is clean and in good working order. The landscape crew are continually grooming the plants and cleaning up the daily debris. During this visit, the outside hallways were pressure washed. Even though I really don't like the smell of the cleaning/disinfectant used in the elevators every day; I appreciate the necessity.
Good spot, great times.
We had à wonderful time in this apartment, quiet location, beautiful view of the sunset every night over the sea, with easy access to the pool. Well furnished, has everything you need for a lovely stay and more. The contact with the owner was very good. I would highly recommend.
Perfect location for all of our needs. Close to shopping, food, excursions and a beautiful BEACH!! Accommodation' s were beautiful, clean and complete with wonderful view. Ari is a wonderful host, complete with local tips about things to do and see. Loved it. Would definitely rebook!
We were very pleased with the condo- the premises were lovely as was the view, and the kitchen was well stocked. There were beach chairs and a sun umbrella as well as snorkel gear. The pools were much smaller than we expected, but with the beach across the street, it was not a big deal. Still, I might look next time for a condo with a bigger pool. The house was clean, though there was some dust under the bed, etc. I would suggest the housekeepers do a thorough scrub of the shower frame at the bottom- there is some gunk that I was able to take off with a washcloth, as well as the plastic soap holders. The microfiber sheets were too worn and pilled with little beads of material, which was not comfortable. I suggest pure cotton sheets in the future. There were lots of towels, including beach towels, which was great Aside from the pool, we would definitely be back. Check in and out was a breeze.
It exceeded my expectations and we had a great time!
We loved the property in Kihei. We had breakfast on the lanai every morning with a beautiful view of the ocean. The location was perfect, walking distance to many restaurants and the beach. We will definitely stay here again!
We had a relaxing stay for a week in this condo. The view from the lanai is great and we watched the sunset from there a few evenings. The condo is very well stocked. We had everything we needed. The A/C works well; bed is on the firm side. Management and owner was very responsive to some special requests we had and also helped us quickly when we needed help.
Fantastic location and accommodations.
What a view of the ocean. See whales breaching, paddleboarders paddling, children swimming! Loved it.
Thank you Ari and AA Oceanfront for a wonderful stay. We spent most of our time out on the lanai taking advantage of the wonderful view. The kitchen was well supplied and we really enjoyed the Gas stove/oven.
We will be back soon
I spent a great deal of time researching the options for our dream vacation in Maui. I found the perfect place for our first week by choosing to stay here. The location was ideal for our daily adventures. Very close to Kihei boat ramp for our snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater, beautiful beach a short walk across the street and many other beautiful beach options neaby, a quick drive from the airport, good casual food options close. I was thrilled to be able to sit on the balcony and watch the whales and gorgeous sunsets! We enjoyed watching the turtles along the rocky shore in front of the Royal Mauian just a couple of blocks away. And the view from the back of Mount Haleakela.was beautiful as well.
We found the unit to be clean and comfortable. The mattress was a bit firm for our taste but we still slept well and appreciated the quality bedding and towels. Lovely kitchen, big screen TV, easy check in/check out process. Thorough and timely communication with the owner and property management contact gave me confidence that I would have the support I needed. Things went so smoothly I didn't need any assistance while we were there.
Thank you for a fabulous stay! We had so much fun!
Condo is beautiful and has an amazing view! It is a bit of a walk to the beach since it is the building set the farthest back on the property. It is super close to the beach, shops, casual restaurants and the beach . It is on a very busy street but makes it easy to get an Uber anywhere you want to go.
Best Maui vacation yet! Can't wait to come back!
One of our best views of Maui in all the places we have stayed in previously! Central location, quick walk to the beach. Enjoyed the amenities (pools, tennis courts). The condo was adequately stocked with all beach gear, kitchenware. Not a lot in terms of essential food items, but with COVID, that is understandable. Would DEFINITELY stay again! Both Property Management Company and Owner were easy to work with and great with communication! Thank you for a great stay!
Wonderful Place. Comfortable and great views. Kitchen had everything you need. A/C in Lvg. Rm. and Bedroom was key! Love it so much, I’ve already booked my next visit. Mahalo for the best trip ever!!
It was fully stocked for us and we loved that they had all the beach toys in the closet. We had a blast and will definitely be coming back!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this condo. It's recently updated, it has a very well equipped kitchen and a great view from the balcony.
Did I mention the location? It's across the street from one of the best beaches in South Maui (Kamaole II) and 5-10 minute walk from stores and restaurants.
The property is well managed. We had zero problems with the condo's cleanliness or with check-in/check-out process.
I have vacationed in Hawaii numerous times since 1979. I have always enjoyed staying at the Kihei Akahi and especially at the newly renovated D511. The pictures on the VRBO site are exactly as advertised. From the moment one enters the unit and looking down the hallway, one will be amazed by the beauty that lies ahead (swaying palm trees and the great blue Pacific Ocean). The unit has a newly tiled floor, new kitchen cabinets with a centre island, and state of the art appliances. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed with nicely appointed furniture and bedding. The bathroom shower is spacious and there is never a shortage of hot water. The living room area has a very comfortable sofa couch and a new 55" or 60" plasma TV. The unit is also equipped with an apartment sized washer and dryer. The ceilings fans in the living room and bedroom provided all the comfort without having to use the air conditioner. The lanai is equipped with a highboy table and two chairs. Eating our meals on the lanai was very relaxing and watching the sunset in the evening something special!! All in all this unit has all the comforts of home. The complex is situated across from Kameole 2 Beach and within walking distance to restaurants, bars, retail and food stores. I was really impressed with the management company who manage D511. The staff was always courteous and professional in all matters regarding the rental. The owner responded promptly to my e-mails and has been a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone whether it be short or long term stay. I look forward to my next stay at D511 in 2015!!
