Property Details

Updated: May 18, 2015
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Located in sunny Kihei, my Kihei Akahi condo is the perfect place to spend your Hawaiian vacation. The complex boasts lovely tropical landscaped grounds with plumeria trees, hibiscus and other mature, lush Hawaiian plants. A three to five minute walk from your lanai will put you on sandy Kamaole Beach II. Here you will be able to catch the rays of the sun (wear sunscreen!) or swim and snorkel in the gentle surf. In the evenings the sunsets provide many opportunities to capture that special photo by which you will remember your time in Hawaii.

My spacious (696 SF), ground-floor condo with lanai opening out onto a large lawn, has been tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished to provide you with a feeling of home away from home. Inside is your own washer and dryer, ceiling fans, and a fully-equipped kitchen. In addition, the condo has an eclectic library of books and VCR tapes -- several featuring Hawaiian history and/or culture -- to enhance your vacation experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(from email after this guest's second stay with me)

Hello Annette,

We are just get back to Japan, as we spent several days in Oahu after Maui. We really enjoyed the life at Maui with your beautiful condo. Anyway, thank you very much to share the comfortable condo. We found some improvement on your unit, and it was great. Also, some renewal kitchen staff was very good. My wife was hesitate to use the new pans at first, as it was shining too much and she would not like to make any surface flaws.

We are not sure when we can go back to Maui next time, while we hope to visit Maui every year. But we are sure that your condo will be 1st priority for accommodation.

Best Regards,
Nov 2005

Home away from home, 2nd visit

  • 5 of 5
We spent 11 nights in Annette's condo and would recommend this unit with no hesitation. Annette is a pleasure to deal with and leaves no questions unanswered. The free Wi-Fi and long to distance to Canada is very thoughtful and appreciated. Her unit is well stocked and is close to retail, restaurants and of course only minutes from a great beach. It is clean and quiet and has had some recent updates. We find this very central for golfing, sight-seeing and beaches and are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Annette!

Our third wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
In November we spent a week in Annette’s lovely condo for the third time. My family was very happy and comfortable in this home away from home. It is so well located, very clean and quiet, and contains everything you need for a vacation. The new bedroom furniture and carpet are very nice, and having free Wi-Fi in the unit is really useful. I have no hesitation in recommending this condo to friends. Annette is a pleasure to deal with and answers any questions promptly.

Just a little off the mark

  • 4 of 5
In general, we enjoyed our stay and thought the price was very reasonable. The unit is a little dated but it was comfortable.

Here is what we liked:
-All the beach stuff you would need, masks, snorkels, fins, boogie board, chairs, towels, coolers, umbrella, kid's toys, etc. The owner really did think of everything.
-Great location. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and there are nice sidewalks so you can walk to them. Easy access to Pi'ilani Highway as well which made getting everywhere on the island easy.
-Nice beach across the street.
-Very quiet.
-Easy access to the pool/grilling area from the lanai.

These are a few things that can be improved on/found less than stellar:
-We wish we had known about the mouse trap. I heard a squeaking sound one day while using the computer but thought it was outside. A few days later I started smelling a foul odor while sitting at the desk. It wasn't until my husband started looking for one of our 14 month old's toys that he found the dead mouse in the trap. I'm just really glad that my daughter didn't find either the trap or the dead mouse first.
-Kitchen was fairly well equipped but I could have used another metal turner for use on the grill to make hamburgers and a few other dish towels.
-The unit is at the back of the small complex. The walk to the beach is only about 5 minutes but it feels longer when you are hauling a bunch of stuff and a baby. We kind of knew that going in.
-Free laptop is slow. It's great that it's provided but we were glad that we brought our own.
-The A/C is on a timer so you can't leave it on all night. Fortunately, it really isn't needed. There are plenty of fans in the bedroom so it was comfortable. We just put the A/C on for about an hour when we got home each afternoon and it really cooled the place off.
-Because the bedroom is the furthest away from the lanai door and it's a ground floor unit, the bedroom was very dark. It was just a little annoying to always need a light when we were in there.
-The management company recommends that you use the low suds soap in the washer. It doesn't work very well. They only provide you with a small bag and you have to pay a nominal fee for more if you need it.

Overall, I would still recommend people stay here if they are on a budget. I felt the property was great for our family.

Owner's Response: I am glad the guest had a good stay in my condo. I do want to respond to some of her comments. Updating, refreshing, and replenishing is done on a continuous basis whenever I visit. My condo's living room, kitchen and bath have been completely renovated over the last 8 years. New cabinets and counter tops were installed eight years ago and the living room completely redone in 2007. All of the appliances including the washer and dryer, refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher have been replaced. New quality lanai furniture was purchased in 2013. At the time the guest visited, new bedroom furniture and carpeting had been on order. That upgrade as well as others, including adding an internet modem with a Wi-Fi router was completed during my summer 2014 visit. It appears that some of the kitchen towels and the metal spatula that the guest mentions were lost by previous guests. Unfortunately that does happen. They were replaced at my last visit. While I would not claim that that everything is brand new or that my efforts have resulted in a five star accommodation, most guests have found my little piece of paradise to be attractive and comfortable and a great value. There are many accommodations not nearly as nice as mine whose owners charge a lot more. I work hard to make sure that everyone staying in my condo has a wonderful, and affordable stay. Regarding the mouse: I am truly sorry that the guest had an unpleasant experience. I warned all of my guests this spring (2014) about the potential appearance of mice because a wet spring results in mice coming down from the upcountry area to Kihei. 2014 was the wettest winter in ten years. My realtor told me that one of his clients reported trapping over a 100! Fortunately my unit only had a couple. It appears that one of my previous guests, in an effort to be helpful, put out a trap. Unfortunately, I can't control nature or know about everything that my guests might do. Finally, regarding the computer: very few condos make a computer and printer available for guest use. I, and most of my guests, see them as a bonus. While the laptop is older, it is reliable and it and the printer are quite adequate for checking email, doing light surfing and printing boarding passes. If higher speeds are necessary, guests probably need to bring their own laptops until a newer laptop is installed in January 2015.

We loved everything about this artfully decorated condo on the ground floor. Loved the grass and trees and shrubbery outside the lanai door, and the easy and lovely walk from the lanai. Good restaurants right down the driveway. Loved the pole over the bathtub to hang dripping wetsuits from. The matching dishware. The laptop computer, internet access, and telephone were invaluable for planning activities. Loved the Dvd's and books ~ what a selection! We didn't need Redbox to rent Dvd's. I purchased one of annette's books on oral histories from old ethnic women in Hawaii. The king-sized bed was so comfy. And, with the windows open, we never needed the a/C. She even had safety vests for novice snorkelers, as well as snorkel gear of all sizes. This was a gem. Can't wait for our next vacation here!
