Beautiful Maui Home Away From Home

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Kihei, Maui, Hawaii
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.

Interaction with guests
After final payment, Trip Advisor will permit me to know your personal contact information. I will then send you a request for personal information so that I can prepare a rental agreement for you. Once I prepare it, I will ask you to sign it and send it to me. When I receive the signed rental agreement, I will then send you complete information about Maui, the condo, and checking in. You will have all the information that you could ever want about your stay and more! I encourage all my guests to ask questions at any time about the condo or Maui. They tell me that they really appreciate the amount of information I provide and my availability to answer questions or provide other help.

About the neighbourhood
Kihei is located in South/Central Maui and is close to everything. The town has a mix of vacation condos and residences so many visitors like it because it tends to be low-key. At the same time it has quite a few beautiful beaches -- many, like the one across the street from my complex, have great snorkeling. Kihei has many restaurants and shop. Whatever your budget, you can find something within walking distance that will satisfy your preferences. Close by is access to all the activities that Maui is known for -- whale watching, snorkeling tours, fishing, golfing, hiking, etc. Many people who return year after year think Kihei is the place to be.
Getting around
Kihei has restaurants and shops within a short, five minute walking distance. One of the best beaches is across the street. The Maui Bus stops a few feet north of my complex. It can take you to grocery shopping at the Foodland a mile north or to the Times supermarket and the Long's drug strore just a couple miles further in North Kihei. There are even connections to Lahaina. So, it is possible to do quite a bit a getting around without an automobile. However, most vacationers prefer to rent an auto as there are many places to see that cannot be reached by public transportation. The condo has its own reserved parking space.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Kahului: 23.0 km
My condo is located in Kihei Town which is south-central Maui close to Wailea. The airport is about 14 miles from the condo -- about 25 minutes by automobile. This contrasts with the distance and time to get to and from the Lahaina and Kaanapali/Kahana/Kapalua (West Maui) which is double the distance and usually takes twice as long to travel or more if traffic is heavy.

Included in the documents guest receive will be a full set of directions to my condo.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 0.3 km.
