Description from owner
Clean, quiet, well maintained, safe, affordable, upgraded, peaceful, beautiful condo with ocean view for sunsets, moonlights, and rainbows. Located on the gorgeous landscaped grounds of Kihei Akahi in the superior, sunniest, most quiet & secure building D, across the consistently best rated swimming beaches of Maui. The sandy-bottom Kamaole Beach I, II, & III are two skips from Kihei Akahi and are watched over by lifeguards and backed by picnic benches. To complement the pristine beaches you also have the two on-site, guest-only, secure, clean, swimming pools!
Literally cool unit, taking advantage of the tranquil trade winds for fresh air ventilation, supported by ceiling fans, and the pull-down sun shade on the lanai. Take your meals, coffee, or wine on the lanai, or just sit and enjoy reading a book with nature's calming soundtrack provided by the singing of the exotic birds flying through the lush, tropical foliage of the meticulously manicured Kihei Akahi gardens. Or if you are feeling energetic, capitalize on the free on-site tennis court; or even head down and BBQ your favorite meat, fish, or vegetable on the updated outdoor propane gas grills - get a full list of Kihei Akahi amenities from the warm and friendly front desk.
Perfect for two people (comfortable king size bed), who will find ample space in this desirable 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom home. Size: 723 sq ft, including the 68 sq ft lanai.
You can expect a very fast email response from us (owners) while booking your dream vacation and during your stay if needed; once on Maui we also have a local contact number as backup if you cannot reach us.
Scroll down and keep on reading for further comments on the fantastic location, nearby attractions, and why we chose to buy here as our home away from home. Mahalo!
ABOUT THE AREA:
If you want to stay in Kihei you don't even need a car! Besides easy walking there is also the public Maui bus service. But if you want to do the road to Hana (must-do activity on Maui), or go up Haleakala mountain (if heights and sunrises is your thing), or visit Wailea (for golfing, or a great luau feast), or Makena (for horse riding), then you'll need a car or to pay someone to drive you. If you get a car, you'll have your own private numbered car parking spot at Kihei Akahi. Though truth be told, parking is easy and free everywhere in Kihei, this is not West Maui!
In Kihei itself you have everything within walking distance from Kihei Akahi. In addition to the info in this description, see the annotated map in the Photos for some information. This area is a particular paradise if you enjoy the soft-sand beaches and crystal-clear blue-green water: sunbathing, beach walking, frolicking, snorkeling, turtle-spotting, SCUBA diving, fishing, whale/dolphin watching, boogie/body boarding, surfing, kayaking etc. All boating activities depart from Kihei Boat Ramp which is walking distance from Kihei Akahi.
If you prefer sports outside the water, you can play basketball and baseball among other activities at Kalama Beach Park (walk north), volleyball at Kamaole Beach I, and you can enjoy free tennis at our very own grounds at Kihei Akahi!
For groceries and general stuff there is Safeway, Whalers General Store, ABC store, and a local 24-hour Foodland - all within walking distance. You can also drive to Costco or Whole Foods.
Food, snack, and beverage choices are abundant all along South Kihei Road, so much so that we wouldn't know where to begin for recommendations from the myriad options. We suggest that on your first day you walk from Kihei Akahi up S Kihei Rd northbound and you'll see what we mean. Or take the car, but walking is good exercise and pleasant in Kihei weather!
WHY THE OWNER CHOSE KIHEI AKAHI:
Proximity to beach, ocean view, minimum noise, safety, privacy, affordable paradise lifestyle.
When choosing our Kihei condo the most important criteria was that it had to be somewhere across from Kamaole Beach I, II, or III - there is little point in travelling all the way to Maui and not be able to walk a few steps and be on one of the Top 5 beaches in Maui. Second criterion was Ocean View even from inside the unit - if you are going to be so close to the sea, why not be able to see it!
Then for units that met those criteria, there were factors that eliminated some of them. For example, ground floor units, because of the reduced privacy and safety, plus bugs can sometimes be an issue, so we wanted a higher floor. We also eliminated units that were directly on Kihei Rd, because the traffic noise seems to get trapped in those units, we wanted a quiet place. Finally, another feature of Kihei Akahi is that it has solid concrete walls and construction, whose benefits include better noise insulation from neighbors, and better temperature characteristics. Its two swimming pools, nicely manicured grounds, tennis court, and outside grills for BBQing were all bonus features!
UNIQUE BENEFITS OF THIS CONDO:
Kihei Akahi units in the D building have nice breezes flowing through when you leave open the entrance door (East) and the lanai door (West) - our lockable steel-screen secondary front door facilitates that. Also the two ceiling fans (and floor fan) in the unit help with air flow. There is also an A/C on a timer, should there be a major heat wave. Our condo has been very well maintained, very clean, and has had various upgrades. Unlike other condos in the building it doesn't have the popcorn ceilings that trap dirt, it doesn't have the older style louvered windows that accumulate grime, and it doesn't have carpets to capture dust/moisture. It also has aesthetically pleasing and functional furniture throughout that we love! Our most recent remodel was in August 2018 - checkout the photos.
