Kihei Akahi is a very popular resort. In Hawaiian, akahi translates to 'number one'. Many visitors to Maui make this resort their number one choice for comfortable, convenient accommodations. It's directly across from Kamaole Beach II, one of Maui's finest beaches. There are two six story buildings, with elevators, and two, two story buildings offering studio, one and two bedroom condominiums. The Akahi is just steps away from shopping and restaurants. The interiors are well appointed and include fully equipped kitchens, ceiling fans (air conditioning in some units) cable TV, telephone, washer/dryer, and private lanais. Kamaole Beach II offers excellent swimming, snorkeling, sunset views, and whale watching (in season). Two swimming pools, tennis court, and barbecues are part of why visitors continue to make Kihei Akahi their number one choice in vacation accommodations. Minimum four-night stay or cleaning fee added.

20 days in Kihei

Be prepared that the pictures of the condos are not true representation of all of the condos. Ours was a very outdated condo with too many mirrors and in need of a good cleaning. However if you get a condo in the higher floors you can get great peek a boo views of the ocean. Also be prepared if you are staying for more the a few days you will need to purchase supplies, like toilet paper. The few staff they have seemed nice enough. However, be aware that when checking in you should have a code for your door. The front desk does not have it and the booking site does not give it to you. If we would have checked in after five, not sure how we would have known the onsite office doesn't have anything to do with your rental. Last critique is the air conditioner does not cool the whole condo and there was no breeze in the bedroom, so we slept on the hideaway bed for comfort. Location is great and they have 2 pools, so you'll have to decide for yourself if it's the place for you.

Central location & affordable

This was our first condo experience in Hawaii. We have stayed at both luxury resorts and mid grade hotels. Room D415 at the Kihei Akahi more than met our expectations! It is a corner unit with a decent ocean view in the building furthest from the street. The assigned parking spot we had was front row. There is a stairway and an elevator. Very clean property and unit. Stocked with just about everything you need in the kitchen. Microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cutlery, pots, pans, dishes & more. The fridge did not get as cold as I would have liked even on highest setting. WIFI was great, no drops on tablet, laptop, or phones. ONLY negative...no central heat/air conditioning. The wall unit cooled the living area nicely but barely touched the bedrooms. There are ceiling fans and a box fan. Luckily, the pullout sofa was surprisingly comfortable and we spent several nights on it instead of the master bedroom. The furnishings, while not brand new and contemporary, were very comfortable and more than adequate for our 7 day stay. Master bedroom has a queen size bed and adjoining bathroom with tub/shower combo. The shower spray was a bit weak, but again, adequate. The second bedroom has two twin beds. We did not use them, but they appeared very clean and comfortable. The second bathroom is adjacent to it and has a shower/tub combo as well. We did not use this shower. This unit includes a washer/dryer combo. If you plan on doing laundry here, I would suggest you pickup a bag of detergent from the office. They are low capacity machines(only will take two-three beach towels max) and a family would need to do several loads a day. The instructions warn against using high suds detergent. The owners provide 4 beach chairs, many boogie boards, umbrellas, sand mats, portable cooler, & some beach toys. The linens and towels were clean and durable. There are extra pillows provided in the closets. There were several beach towels as well. Unfortunately for us, the property next door was in the midst of some parking construction. Started a precisely 8:00 am everyday until at least 4:00 pm. It was loud and a pain, but not something that would have been predictable. There are many shops and food choices within walking distance. The beach across the street has a lifeguard on duty. The waves pickup all over the island after noon, so plan on early water activities. We would definitely stay here again, and bring the kids with us.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

Leave very early if you plan a trip to Hana. Pack a lunch and bring a change of clothes. Drive all the way to the end FIRST, and then make your way back. You will want to make many stops,as there are MANY side attractions ie; waterfalls, beaches, etc. We were on the road by 10:00 am and did not return until 9:00 pm.

COMFORTABLE WITH NO FRILLS

This is our second stay in 13 months. This unit C612 was even better than last time C207. Good view of the ocean at humpback whale time (4 floors higher). The property is older and the units vary in terms of upgrades or modernization but contain everything needed for a comfortable stay. Two pool & bbq areas plus a tennis court. Beware, the birds start singing early in the morning and the louvered bedroom windows don't keep out much of the vehicle noise and conversations.

For the price, can't beat it!

This complex is DIRECTLY across the street from Kamaole II. This beach has beautiful, warm, clear, calm water--perfect for the kids!! The unit has washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, huge bed in the room and a pullout couch in the living room. Great view from the balcony, two pools, close to shops, restaurants, etc. Caveat: I believe most of the units are individually owned so they may not all be as great as the one we were in. But for my first time staying there I was seriously impressed!!!

Never Again !

Poor building Access. Clueless front desk personnel who can't give you information on accessing your room. No A/C in room. No complimentary Internet in room. Low grade, poor quality, and expensive for what you get. Go to a different property for decent accomodations !
