Not so Aloha

dave c (Pemberville, Ohio) on Sep 26, 2023

In general, the place needs a face lift. I stayed in C611. It’s a dump, stay away. Usually very noisy every day. Across from Kam 2 Fred’s and Moose’s are the only advantages. This is my 43rd time to Maui, there ARE better places

Affordable Maui Option

Kristin C (Crown Point, Indiana) on Jul 10, 2023

We stayed in D406, while everything was completely outdated, we can’t complain for the price. The complex had two pools with grilling areas, the condo had fully stocked kitchens so we were able to get groceries etc.

D-511 Kihei Akahi

Neil T on Mar 04, 2023

view was spectacular, kitchen well appointed, king bed was comfortable, property was immaculately groomed and very clean. Living room furniture was atrociously uncomfortable, as was the lanai furniture. Toilet was poor and shower was marginal. Would not stay in this property again, until these condo living issues are addressed.

D514 ???

WandaParksville (Vancouver Island, Canada) on Feb 12, 2023

This is our second stay in D514 and unit owner, Diane, has been great to deal with. We prefer this unit over D518 where we stayed in 2015. D514 has a good view of the property and ocean and we enjoyed watching the sunset and whales from there. The unit is well stocked for cooking and beach activities. We love the location which is across the street from Kamaole beach 2, near a number of good restaurants and stores where you can get food, alcohol, clothes, souvenirs or book excursions. Kihei Akahi has 2 pools, a tennis court and lovely trees and flowers. It also has BBQ areas at each pool although this time we just used the gas grill on the stove and that worked well too. ?????????????????

Is that the ocean across the street?

davidcQ8961SY on Aug 11, 2022

We stayed in A102 which is one of the 2 bedroom townhouse style units on the ocean side of the complex. I believe the owner owns 2 or 3 of the A units. The process was fairly simple and the contact for the unit even handled our deposit adventure with a pretty solid sense of humour. Our credit card company flagged the purchase even though we updated our travel plans on the card. I am not sure if this is expensive or not because I wanted a 2 bedroom place and they were pretty rare. It seems expensive to me but in comparison to hotels in Maui this rental was practically a bargain. I was not familiar with Maui life but it bustles on S. Kihei rd from 5am and after dark it becomes rather quiet. The unit had a floor level and an upstairs balcony to sit and watch the ocean or the sunset. The view was incredible. Words and pictures can't do it justice. The landscaping on street level was pretty lush so the noise and traffic from the street did not bother me. I understand these units are showing their age but the owner of A102 appears to have installed some pretty high end sliding doors so when the door was closed it was quiet. It's funny that even in Hawaii the doves wake me up, I hate doves but I saw two varieties I had never seen before. They are both louder than ours, so, that's awesome. The unit is clean enough and the amenities were sufficient for our stay. We had to buy toilet paper and paper towels. Not a huge surprise nor is that an inconvenience. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which we used and they worked well. The kitchen was clean and there were enough dishes for our needs. They could use some new knives for prep and some more saute pans but I am not sure how many people cook on vacation, so this is forgivable. The pillar in the middle of the kitchen was a little awkward as well. The fridge was too big for the space and could not be opened fully, also awkward. The air conditioning was in the main floor and the two bedrooms but it was on a 6 hour timer and it was hot all day and over 25 at night. We basically turned it on at night and again as soon as we woke up for breakfast. Only need it for sleeping and getting ready/makeup. I have been told that it is not fun to put on makeup while sweating. When the air conditioning is not on it gets very hot in the unit resulting in some odd smells. I think that is the time it is most obvious that the unit is not young and fresh. When I say very hot i mean 30-35 and humid. The facility is well kept, trimmed and neat despite its age. The tennis courts are in good shape as is the lower pool. I never went to the upper pool but I know it exists. The lower pool had a large deck and a large covered area with 2 huge bbq's. I don't know if the A units have exclusive access to this lower pool area but it was never that busy. Maybe it was the time of year or maybe it's because it takes about 15 seconds to get to beautiful Kamaole II beach and within 5 minutes walking distance of pretty much any beach in Kihei. There is a very substantial rule book in the unit and more rules written on the wall of the pool area. If you are a person who drives it like a rental this facility may not be for you. If you use the room to eat and sleep and if you use the pool area to sun, read and swim you will have no problems. I found the extensive rules a little overbearing and our teenage children were told to be quiet at the pool. Yet, on three other occasions younger, louder and splashier children were not told to be quiet. I found that interesting. They were renters as well and i read reviews that stated the owners do not like loud renters. I guess it only matters if you are a Canadian teenager, I don't know, but I did find this an annoying arbitrary application of the rules. They were literally standing on the pool deck bouncing a ball and looking menacing, i guess. I have only one complaint about the unit. The couch in the unit needs to be replaced asap, it was clearly not lightly used and sticky. If we had bad weather or were forced inside for some reason I would have chosen the floor over the couch. Overall I would highly recommend this property but if you can get one of the oceanfront units, do so. Breakfast on the lower terrace and lounging on the upper balcony would be a vacation well spent on its own.
