- What's Included
OverviewLocated across the street from the best swimmable beach in Kihei, the Kihei Akahi is a fantastic value with comfortable accommodations. Spacious rooms & great location make this condominium resort a Canadian favourite.
Location: On South Kihei Road, across the street from Kamaole Beach Park II. Approximately 30 min from the Kahului airport.
A 40 foot tall palm tree dropped a frond and shattered my windshield on July 1st. I live in the tropics and these things don't drop on their own - it takes a good 5-10 strikes with a sharp machete to bring them down. These trees are right next to the pool and if your kids get hit they're looking at a concussion at best and a broken neck at worst. Managements response was it's an act of god - but god didn't make them not pay to have their trees serviced and god didn't make them not callback with a resolution for two weeks and counting. Sure it's a more affordable place to stay but when people can't even offer condolences when their negligence helps ruin your trip and have the audacity to blame god, and the lack of caring to ever follow through. I'd suggest that the $600 it takes to fix your vehicle be spent on a place that does basic maintenance. Otherwise it could be your loved one or child bleeding out on the ground from another "act of god." There's a different condo every 50 feet in this part of town - do yourself a favor and walk the extra 50 feet.
Small Studio with full kitchen, washer and dryer, pool, across from beach. It's all you need for a stay. The only thing is that I had to check in at two different places, that was kind of a pain... but that's it.
We were in Maui for 2 months. The first month was in c305. The king size bed was comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. We could see the ocean and were able to catch a few sunsets. The price was good. Location is great. 2 excellent pools. Ocean is maybe a y min walk. The area is flat which is good for walking in my head is a
I stayed in C201 at the Akahi for 66 nights, Jan - March 15, 2017.The studio size is good, bathroom good, floor good, all reno'd recently.The owner, who is resident on Maui, is very helpful, trying to solve any problems that arise.What is great is the privacy the studios offer. No balcony of another condo attached, or within hearing distance. The studios have lanais (balconies) on the side of the buildings.It is not a place for people who like/or need firm beds. Unfortunately the recent reno. did not include the murphy bed which has ancient springs and a soft mattress on top of them.The lovely flooring which gives the appearance of real wood, does not continue under the bed to meet the wall. There is still some v.old carpeting under the head of this murphy bed....not healthy... People who like shade and a cool wind will like this studio. If you like sunshine on your lanai, you need to reserve a studio above the second floor. Shade is provided nearly all day by leafy trees growing right beside the south side of the lanai.Location is good, close to the office, the tennis court and the lower pool. Kamaole beach 2 is across the Sth. Kihei Rd. just outside this Akahi complex. The 3 Kamaole beaches, 1, 2, 3, are considered the safest for swimming on the island. Kihei is considered a 'drought' area of this island, except this past 2016-2017 winter which was the strangest on record according to Maui's inhabitants. Storm winds, flash floods from heavy tropical rains closing roads for periods of time. Trees were even blown down. The temperature was always warm, in lovely Hawaiian style.The guests and residents of this large (2 x 6 storey bldgs + 2 x 2-storey) complex were very friendly and mostly helpful to each other.
We stayed from March 27 - April 6, 2017. We stayed in Building C suite 608 and were so thankful to have been on the top floor of this building. We traveled with three other couples and I honestly believe we were the lucky ones. The three other couples were placed in suites between the main floor and the second floor of Building C & D (C109, C208 and D208).I have traveled to the Caribbean six times to date (Bahamas (2), Cuba, Jamaica (2) and Eleuthera) and this was unbelievable in comparison. What bother me the most was how bad it was and the gross number of bugs (cockroaches) in each of these suites. I have never seen so many cockroaches in that many rooms. Our suite (C608) in particular was average. The kitchen although clean has never been updated and looks like it could use a good refresh. It could also use a larger frying pan as they only had one of the smallest pans you can buy. The bathroom and powder room were clean but the same, as the kitchen and really needs to be renovated. They could also use some newer and nicer towels and as well as more than just one dish washcloth and towel.The bedroom was decent with lots of storage a good size closet and had a nice feeling. It also had a decent king size bed. I really enjoyed the fact that we had beach chairs and coolers for us to use. My only concern/worry with leaving was if we were bringing any cockroaches home. We left all our baggage outside, re-washed all our clothes and thoroughly sprayed all our bags with RAID to ensure none of those little creatures came into our house.Would I stay here again….I do not think so as I just cannot get over the bug infestation.
