I recently stayed at the Kihei Akahi, Unit 101 in Bldg. D. What you will love about this studio unit is that it is set off South Kihei Road close to some good walking distance restaurants but also it's directly across for a wonderful swimming beach on Maui that has Life Guards! The unit I stayed in is the furtherest... More

This unit in the complex was just updated and it's great. It's on the ground floor in a nook behind trees that makes it about as private as it gets. It's close to the BBQ and pool, but more importantly it's literally 2.5 minutes to the beach and the main strip. I had a rental car, but barely used it.... More

I have to admit, I was initially discouraged on the night we arrived. At first glance, the stained carpets, somewhat beatup bathroom cabinets, and 70's style countertops and faucets made me feel we had rented a substandard unit. To top it off, the unit is at the front of the Kihei Akahi property, which meant we were right on the... More

We've been staying at Kihei Akai since the mid 70's when my Grandparents bought their first condo. This is definitely the only place to stay where everything is in walking distance. Best beach, best restaurant (Fred's Taco's!) and only a few minutes drive to anything else you might need. We stay in A or C building now (D building too... More

Mahalo for taking the time to write your review of the Kihei Akahi. I am pleased to hear you have been coming to visit for so many years - you must have seen so many changes over that time. One of the wonderful aspects of the Akahi is that the four buildings are unique and are positioned differently on the... More

Third stay at Palekaiko at the Kihei Akahi. This place is absolutely amazing. It is very clean and has all the necessities for a wonderful stay. The location is fantastic. Close to shopping, restaurants, convenience stores and of course sublime beaches. A very special thanks to D. We look forward to our return.

Many rules of engagement for this functional, efficiency condo, but none for how inexpensive the owner can go. Internetly speaking the property is beautiful and it is, ah! but, D601, well that's a different story. There is a darkness about the property, which comes from the interior sidewalks, which aren't exactly clean, dark doors and screen doors. Our unit was... More

Thank you for your review of the Kihei Akahi, and condo D601, which our vacation rental company manages. It sounds like your two main concerns were the cleanliness and bed (mattress/linens). Each of our condos are professionally cleaned by different on-island cleaning companies. We will be sure to report your claims to the cleaning company for this condo and inspect... More

The condo was great for our family of 3! We have a 3 year old that loves to run and explore and this was perfect for him. I won't say this was comparable to a 5 star resort, because it isn't. It's a functional and comfortable space for your family and everything you need is available (i.e. sheets, towels, kitchenware,... More

This condo was great for our family of 4 (mom, dad and 2 daughters 18 and 20). The location is excellent--just a block away from a fabulous beach with great swimming and snorkeling and a nice atmosphere for both locals and tourists. The condo is clean, quiet, and pleasant. The air conditioning worked great in the evening when we needed... More

We stayed in D109 - back building. There is a disregard for the actual accommodations for this unit, there is a small air conditioner - on a 6 hour timer - in the living room. There is no air in the bedroom or elsewhere - thus making is horrendous to sleep because it is over 80 degrees in the unit.... More

Here’s a review of Kihei Akahi #514. We stayed there for 3 weeks in December in 2013. I booked through VRBO and Diane was great to deal with, very helpful about the local area and everything was it was described. Diane left wine and chocolate covered macadamia nuts for us on arrival. She has done a wonderful job of updating... More
