Description from owner
Aloha! Welcome to Hale Ma'kai (house beside the sea), my home at Kihei Akahi. My smoke-free one-bedroom Maui condo, located in sunny Kihei, is the perfect place to spend your Maui vacation. My spacious (696 SF), ground-floor condo is in the Kihei Akahi complex immediately across the street from Kamaole 2 Beach which is popular for swimming and snorkeling. It has a lanai which opens out onto a large lawn and has been tastefully and comfortably decorated in tropical style with bamboo and rattan furnishings to provide you with a feeling of a tropical home away from home.
My condo receives regular updates on an ongoing basis.
THE BEDROOM received new carpeting,bamboo/rattan furniture from the mainland, and new king bed in 2015.
THE KITCHEN AND BATH were updated in 2007 with new cabinets, appliances and finishes and then again in 2018 when the cabinets were refinished, new countertops installed, and other design updates made. A new refrigerator was installed in 2017 and a new dishwasher in 2018.
THE LIVING ROOM was completely in the summer of 2015 when the the sofa was re-upholstered and new energy efficient quiet windows installed. New carpeting was laid in 2017 and in the summer of 2018 a new quiet, energy efficient AC was installed.
Inside my condo is a stack washer and dryer combination, ceiling fans, a quiet window AC, Free WiFi and high speed cable internet, free use of a Dell laptop and printer (see description) free long distance phone service to the US and Canada, and a fully-equipped kitchen. In addition, the condo has a flat panel HD TV and an eclectic library of books, VCR tapes, and DVDs -- several featuring Hawaiian history and/or culture.
I periodically do deep cleaning and maintenance so that my condo provides the best vacation experience possible for my guests.
The Kihei Akahi complex boasts lovely tropical landscaped grounds with Plumeria trees, Hibiscus and other mature, lush Hawaiian plants. We have even created a botanical garden walk on the grounds; maps are available at the front desk.
Across the street is sandy Kamaole II Beach Park with showers and restrooms. During the day until 5:00 PM, the beach park has life guards. At Kam II, as it is called, you will be able to catch the rays of the sun (wear sunscreen!) or swim and snorkel -- and be likely to see a green sea turtle or two. In the evenings you will be able to sit on the west-facing lanai and view the sunsets while having a glass of wine or having dinner.
My condo is wheelchair accessible. However, it is not set up for many needs of some handicapped guests. Please discuss your needs with me before booking. Pets are NOT allowed in the complex. My Condo is smoke-free. SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE IN MY CONDO OR ON THE LANAI!

Owner Supplied Testimonials
THE CONDO WAS EXCELLENT. GREAT LOCATION.
Dates of stay: June 12-18, 2016.
Guest name: Val
We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The condo was excellent, location was great. The pool was just a few feet away from the lanai. Beaches were so close to us. Within reasonable driving distance from other towns like Wailea and Lahaina. We checked out many beaches while there. We went to the beach across the street from the complex and saw at least 3-4 sea turtles. There were beach chairs, a beach umbrella, snorkeling gear that fits all ages, plenty of beach towels and just about everything a person would need when taking a trip. Annette had made the sofa so was ready to be slept in, because she knew we were flying in late. She made sure to make our stay very enjoyable!! Would definitely return!!

MAGICAL TWO WEEKS IN PARADISE:
Dates of stay: April 12-24, 2016
Guest name: Andriy
This was our second trip to Maui and we chose this condo due to its proximity to the Kamaole Beach II which we liked a lot during our first trip. Another factor was the level of involvement/details about the condo Annette was providing. When we arrived I was impressed with what condo was offering - all imaginable equipment for snorkeling, beach gear, toys, video/audio library, board games, and even laptop and printer available. Kitchen was fully equipped and even blender was there which rare finding in rentals, and I was able to enjoy my regular smoothie in the morning. Air conditioner is new and quiet, and new windows keep hot air and noise out. We had great time both at the beach and coming back to the place which became our temporary home in paradise. I will definitely recommend it to my friends. Thank you Annette!

LOVELY CONDO ACROSS FROM THE BEACH.
Dates of stay: October 11-15, 2015
Guest name: Caroline
My husband, our 2.5 year old daughter and I just returned from spending 2 weeks in Annette's wonderful condo. It was perfect! Right by the pool and on the ground level so my daughter could go outside and play on the grass. The condo is right across from the beach but set back from the road so you don't get any street noise (it is building D which is the furthest back building on the property). The condo was clean and extremely well stocked with kitchen supplies, beach chairs, towels, snorkelling gear, an umbrella, boogie boards, 2 coolers and loads of other stuff I probably forgot. There was neighbours on either side of us but we never heard them, the building is nice and quiet. The location in Kihei is perfect for exploring the island or just settling in and enjoying Kamaole II beach right across the street. It was also great to have the pool right by the condo (my daughter much preferred it to the beach!) and there are BBQs available at the pool area so that's what we did for a lot of our meals. Annette was wonderful to deal with!! She was quick to respond to any inquiries, she provided lots of detailed information about the island and activities as well as detailed instructions about the condo. She was easily reachable via email at any time prior to, during and after our stay. We also really appreciated her reasonable rates that allowed us to take this vacation together as a young family. We would stay at Annette's condo again in a heartbeat. From review posted on another of my advertising websites.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME, 2ND VISIT
Date of stay: November 30, 2014
Guest name: Heather
We spent 11 nights in Annette's condo and would recommend this unit with no hesitation. Annette is a pleasure to deal with and leaves no questions unanswered. The free Wi-Fi and long to distance to Canada is very thoughtful and appreciated. Her unit is well stocked and is close to retail, restaurants and of course only minutes from a great beach. It is clean and quiet and has had some recent updates. We find this very central for golfing, sight-seeing and beaches and are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Annette!

OUR THIRD WONDERFUL STAY
Date of Stay: November 19-26, 2014
In November we spent a week in Annette’s lovely condo for the third time. My family was very happy and comfortable in this home away from home. It is so well located, very clean and quiet, and contains everything you need for a vacation. The new bedroom furniture and carpet are very nice, and having free Wi-Fi in the unit is really useful. I have no hesitation in recommending this condo to friends. Annette is a pleasure to deal with and answers any questions promptly. From review posted on another of my advertising sites.
