... for air again! It's little head is so cute above water. Went and got our usual iced coffee and a local specialty, shaved ice (it's not very special). More swimming of course, then a quick final dip before running to make it to the luau we booked at our hotel. The food was amazing and the show was excellent, was really good ...

... with white clouds, turquoise-grey ocean water, and white foamy surf, creeping up the beach with each wave. As the water flowed back out to the ocean, a shiny layer was left for a few seconds on the sand, reflecting the sky and clouds. Further out in the ocean, waves crashed against large lava rocks jutting out of the water, sending up a spray of white foam. It was a beautiful setting!
There were only a few people on the beach, and a few out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kihei Akahi
Would stay again in a second.
For 100 bucks a night...I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The view was incredible (even from the farthest building,) everything was accessible (we were without a car,) and the employees, though few, were amazing. They knew us by name throughout the week. We walked to the beach every day, directly across the street, and down the street a few blocks to grocery shop. There are bars, convenience stores and restaraunts all within walking distance. My only complaint was that we got stuck in the furthest building back when there were plenty of open rooms in other, closer buildings. Don't worry about the lack of air conditioning, with the front door and lanai door open, there is a marvelous breeze that goes through every room of the condo. Highly Reccomended.
We spent 12 nights in the Haleakala building, the last one (I guess it's D) at Kihei Akahi. It was in room 509 at the 5th floor.
My fiance and I stayed at the Kihei Akahi for 6 nights and it was a wonderful experience. we had a studio with kitchen room 101. We loved being able to cook our own meals after a long day outdoors, and it was pretty central to everything we wanted to do. For a first time visitor to Maui, we would suggest instead staying somewhere in Lahaina, where most activities (surfing, shopping, shows) are located.
Searched the internet for the perfect condo for our third trip to Maui and we certainly found it here. We were in building C, fifth floor and could see whales from our lanai every day as well as kayakers, boats and rainbows. The grounds are beautifully maintained including the pool areas (2) and barbeques, which we used several times. A short walk across the street and we were at a wonderful beach. The weather was a little unpredictable this trip but we always managed to have some sun at our condo and nearby beach. We enjoyed walking to the nearby shops and jumped in our car to head south to great snorkling areas, a short drive, under 20 mins. The singing birds and friendly neighbors added to our enjoyment. Our condo itself was immaculate and nicely furnished.
I was initially concerned at the Kihei Akahi has had some mixed reviews, but our unit (609) was great! It was clean and well furnished with extras like Hawaiian music cd's. Though it was spring break the town and beaches didn't seem crowed and the people were friendly. The room also had a pair of conch shells to take to the beach (with a bottle of wine) and blow them at sunset. The trumpeting sound was echoed up and down the beach by others enjoying the same experience.
The one disappointing thing is that I had requested a quiet room. I booked with Condominium Rentals Hawaii , and Get Up and Go Travel who completely ignored this request. We were given a unit who's bedroom window onto the elevator. Avoid any room ending in the numbers nine or ten to avoid this problem.
Bugs in the kitchen/bathroom
Just returned from 2 weeks in Maui - stayed at the Kihei Akahi. Yes, it IS across from a nice public beach and yes, the grounds are mature and well kept. And, for us, in C501, it was quiet and had a beautiful view of the nightly sunsets. Word of caution, however. It is a property which, from the looks of it, was built in the 60's and so after all these years of people coming and going, there was a problem with insects in the kitchen and bathroom. They were mites of some kind. If I go to Maui again, I'd opt for a newer condo complex. Even if I had to pay a few more bucks.
Can't wait to go back...
We visited Maui in May and were married there!! We stayed in building D at Kihei Akahi and we loved it!! We had plans to stay at the Sheraton in Lahaina and ended up in Kihei and we are so thankful that we did. We had an atmosphere like home instead of being cramped in a hotel with only 2 chairs and a bed to sit on!! Our view was spectacular and we enjoyed eating on the lanais every morning. We are planning a returen trip to Maui for our 1 year anniversary and we will definately be staying at Kihei Akahi again. This place is definately underrated!! If you are looking for relaxation, quiet and can live without room service then you must give this place a second thought....way more for your money than a hotel!!!
A few weeks ago we returned from staying at the Kihei Akahi on Maui. We traveled to the island with over 60 people for a wedding. Accommodations ran from one end of the island to the other.I was lucky to stay in the middle. Kihei. 40yds from the beach and 20 yds from the pool at a condo that had a ocean view #108. Cost was less and more convient than staying at the Haytt or Four Seasons.Kihei Akahi is very short walking distance from resturants, markets and night life. Lulu's is new fun stop and Life's a Beach has a $ 1.00 Mai Tai's for Happy Hour that last more than one hour unlike other watering holes on the high end side of the island.Overall the accommodations at the Kihei Akahi give you a relaxing and best bang for you buck without calling for Western Union. And waking up to the ocean view is worth being away from the tourist side of the island. At least thats what a Holiday is for. Getting away from it all. To Relax and Enjoy!!!Aloha!!!

This is a great place to stay
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to find a nice place. The area is all well cared for and the buildings are arranged so that you have a nice view of the lawns (which are very nice to look at). It is right across from one of the nicest beaches on the island and is close to everything. There are restaurants and shopping close by but you aren't bombarded with tourist traps on every corner.
It was great
We just got back from Hawaii and spent 5 days at the Kihei Akahi. I was a bit worried before we left since after we booked a friend told me they had stayed here once before and had to move since their unit was so noisey - being next to the parking entrance.
Because it is a condo, every unit is different. We ended up with a fourth floor, quiet unit, with ocean views. We had a one bedroom unit without air conditioning. Because it was cooler at night 65-70, the fans in the unit were enough, but I would want air conditioning if I went in summer.
Our unit was great, had all the comforts of home and we were happily surprised. The building was quite and clean and the service by the condo rental agency was excellent. I would stay here again.
