Very good! Layout of the suite was a bit weird (tight around bathroom / shower area) and bedroom has a small, high window.. but that's all I can think to complain about; otherwise it was altogether great.
A great place to stay!

We were here for a week, and we're very happy to have had such a great condo rental experience. This unit looks exactly as advertised and has an excellent partial ocean view from its fifth floor balcony. It's got great updated style with fully functioning appliances - full size fridge, quiet dishwasher, laundry machines, air conditioning, tv. Shower worked great, and the bedroom is dark and quiet. We were surprised by some of the amenities, including boogie boards, sun umbrella, beach towels, picnic lunch coolers, water bottles, beach toys, and all the kitchenware. Cooking was easy with all that's there. The elevator was great. Kamaole II is directly across the street. And a couple blocks away, S and Q quickly became our favorite coffee, muffin, milkshake stand. Easy walking access to shops, restaurants, beaches, sun. The grounds of this place are nicely maintained, parking is assigned, there is unobtrusive security, pool and tennis court access is included. The onsite manager was friendly and helpful. We loved this place and would gladly try to book it again.

Really enjoyed this spaceous condo because it was Very clean and has a great view from the balcony. We were provided with everything we needed and more from the well stocked kitchen to the lovely surprise of a few beach necessities! The owners are great hosts and made everything very simple so that we were worry free for our entire stay. We had zero issues. I would absolutely stay in this condo again. And Maui was freakin' AWESOME!

great price, I hope to stay again soon. Only downside is no hot tub, had to buy extra toilet paper because they only provide 2 rolls, and the bedroom can get warm. Ac in living rooms and there is a fan.

We had a wonderful vacation rental experience! The location of the property was perfect for us, across from the beach and close to a lot so we could walk. Stores, restaurants, etc. Plus we had friends staying down the street so that was a plus! The unit was nice and updated, and had everything we needed... including boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella. Would stay here again.

We had a wonderful time staying in this unit!! It was very clean, recently updated, and the furniture was in great condition! The condo was right across the street from great beaches, had a gorgeous view, and was very quiet and peaceful. We had stayed at a condo down the street with friends for the first few days, so when we checked into this Akahi unit we were pleasantly surprised by how much nicer and cleaner it was! It was very comfortable for 3 people, we especially liked that the unit has it's own washer and dryer. Check-in and out was very easy, we had a quick question and the Maui Condo staff answered immediately. We will definitely be back soon, thank you!!
We'll be back!

This condo was perfect for us. The recent remodel was tastefully done. Kihei Akahi has a fabulous location with a wonderful beach just down the driveway and across the street. It was like having our own private beach! We got a great cross-breeze through the condo, so never had to use the air conditioning during our stay. Loved it!

Over all we had a very pleasant stay. We got lucky with the pool closure, it was unexpectedly closed for 4 weeks, the day we were leaving. Bummer for the people still there! The suite was pretty well everything it claimed. Wi-fi was good the air-conditioned did work, however wasn't need, just opened doors and window's and the trade winds took care of the cooling. Would liked to have had a toaster. Not used to toasting in a toaster oven. will remember to take extra garbage bags, dishwasher pods. Not very many condiments there, but that's ok. The bed was way too soft for us and made lots of noise just getting in and out, that would be our only complaint. The beach chairs umbrella were great and in good condition. The linens and towels were great and plentiful. Fridge, stove and dishwasher were new and very good. The icemaker in the fridge was a great asset! Having screen doors on the entry and balcony was great. You can even lock both but especially the entry door! The next door guests were in awe, because they didn't have any screen doors. All the furniture was in very good condition! Had a little trouble on arrival to condo. We arrived about midnight and the light over the out door entry was burnt out and had a little difficulty punching the door code in. The bulb was repaired the next day. Over all we would stay would most likely stay in C513 again, for sure if the bed was replaced. Quick note, pretty well everyone else we talked to that was staying there said the bed issue is a common issue with most suites. We stayed in the building 6 yrs ago and most the other guests we interacted with were re-peats and were very satisfied with the location and accommodations. Some units are much more desirable then others so if your a first time visitor read all the comments.
Clean, Fantastic Rental!

Property description and pictures were more than accurate. Condo was clean and fully stocked for our 9-night stay there. We enjoyed the tradewinds during the day, but found them lacking at night so we enjoyed the AC with the timer function and multiple ceiling fans to keep cool. The kitchen was one of my favorite parts with everything I needed to prepare daily meals for the two of us. Only issue we had was somewhat minor -- a condo balcony above us caught fire during one of the afternoons I was alone in the condo. Luckily staff, residents, and the Maui Fire Dept were able to evacuate everyone and the fire was contained and we had no further issues after. It did not affect our condo, but was a little too close for comfort. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach across the street (Kam II) and found it to be our favorite for lounging in the morning. Nearby shops and rentals were great as well since they were only a short 5-10 minute walk. Definitely would book again if we return to Maui!

The area that this condo was in was perfect. Quick walk across the street to the ocean, walking distance to restaurants and convenience stores, but away from the touristy resorts. So nice to have in-unit washer/dryer and an included parking spot. Kitchen has everything you'd need. Only complaint is that the AC unit is in the living room only and the bedroom was very hot during July.

I can not describe how elated I was to see a rental condo so beautifully appointed! The check in was easy, the supplies were more than ample for my stay. I was able to have everything and more at my finger tips to host a family dinner with my son and girlfriend while there. We noticed the blender was cracked while making drinks. I called office and the staff had us a new blender before the ice was melted! I would definitely stay with them again. I have to give the reservation staff credit because Jeff put me onto a superb complex that was within walking distance of great restaurants, bars, and beaches!

We enjoyed this unit and the location too. It is right across the road from Kameoli Beach 2 and the amenities provided all we needed. The best part of this place is the ability to open the doors on both ends and get that great breeze coming through. We especially liked the gas stove and microwave but all the appliances are great.
the bed is fine but an improvement on the pillows would be a nice added touch. A very comfortable place and we would stay here again.

My wife and I have stayed at Kihei Akahi a number of times, and this is one of the nicer units we've stayed in. Perfect size for 2, far enough away from the elevator to avoid the noise, but close enough to be convenient. Well stocked with kitchen accessories, just remember not to take glassware to the pool/bbq area.

Nice condo, but more towels and provisions should be left. For instance, we only got two rolls of toilet paper for 4 people for 4 days. We also got only one extra garbage bag for a small garbage. Those kinds of things were very disappointing. Also, the bed and pullout were both very uncomfortable. The location was wonderful. The office staff was very helpful.

We were so pleased with this 1 bedroom condo for our first trip to Maui. The location was perfect for all the places we wanted to visit. It was a short jaunt to almost everywhere (except Hana which isn't close to anywhere :)
The beach right across the street from this condo was so pretty and clean and there weren't too many people...perfect to watch the sunset. The condo itself had everything we needed (including beach chairs, boogie boards and fans). We would definitely stay here again.
Awesome stay, would definitely recommend!

The condo had everything we needed and more. We were pleasantly surprised by all of the beach items available including chairs, umbrella, coolers, boogie boards etc. The kitchen is fully equipped and the Lanai has a beautiful view. We really have no complaints and would definitely stay again. If there was anything at all that I could say is that the air conditioner is annoyingly loud, but it wasn't a big deal. We loved that you could get a great cross breeze if you left the front door and Lanai door open, so we didn't need the air conditioner all the time anyway.
Loved our stay and the quality care from these people!

This property was recently upgraded, but they forgot to do the bed - needs replacement. Also the sheets were horrible 100%polyester, not the high quality cotton as promised. Condo was very well equipped including boogie boards and beach towels and all kitchen appliances, utensils, etc. Bedroom is located at the back of the condo (as they all are here) and can be very noisy as people walk along the outside corridor. Never had to use the A/C as there was a lovely air flow from the bedroom to the living room. Lanai is lovely but the table is too large for the space. Everything was clean when we arrived. Great pool area and a short walk to a great beach. Used the barbeque facilities - very nicely maintained.
First time on Maui
Reviewed on Tuesday, December 17, 2013
We had a terrific 10-day trip early Dec 2013 to Maui. We chose Kihei Akahi for its location and on friends' recommendations. Unit C-513 has a nice, new kitchen that is fully stocked with all the dishes and cookware (and even plastic storage containers) we needed. Great new appliances and a very spacious layout too.
The unit is very clean and nicely furnished. The a/c is helpful on a really hot afternoon, but we didn't need to use it often although the temps were quite high.
The beach chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie boards and bamboo mat were great! The only downside is that the windows in the bedroom are on the back of the building (over the back parking lot and across from the kihe Kai nani). You cannot see out the windows, but as they are all slatted glass panes, they are not very soundproof and any noise filters right in. This would be true of any unit in the building though, unless the windows have been replaced (I did see a few). The early morning birds are also very loud, so I would definitely recommend earplugs!
The kihei akahi is very convenient to the beach and restaurants. It has a nice and clean pool, which we used once, and our unit did have a nice water view which wasn't obvious from the listing.
Our favorite beach ended up being Keawakapu Beach - just a km walk South. It starts just past the Kihei Surfside and Mana Kai which are right on the point south of Kihei boat launch. It's a beautiful, quiet, sandy beach with good snorkelling right off shore. I would highly recommend the 2 min drive down with all your gear.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again. It's a good value for the location and amenities. It's close (walking and driving) to everything we needed! Kamaole 2 is right across the street. The sunsets there are absolutely gorgeous! For daytime beaching, though, Keawakapu was better. Beautful houses (no busy road) alongside the beach.

The only problem was the bed was not comfortable - too hard.
