    I got a Groupon for this place. It is beautiful manicured property. Our room is in building D which is in the back and a longer walk to the beach but still worth it. Was hoping for a king bed but it was only a queen, but still ok. Nice location overall. Restaurants and Foodland close. Beach right across the street. Would definitely stay here again. Tour for Road to Hana picks you up right from the main office on property.

    Brilliant location

    Condo doesn’t actually face the beach but is a two minute walk downhill through beautiful gardens full of gorgeous flowers and chirping birds. The units are perfect for couples. 1 bedroom condos fully equipped. We’re loving it.

    Didn't love it :(

    This was our third trip to Maui. The first two times we stayed in the complex right next door, which is directly along South Kihei Road. At "our old place" we could hear the ocean well, but had some road noise as well as noise from a leaf blower in the parking lot of the business behind us bright and early every morning. So we thought we'd try Kihei Akahi this time and see what it's like being a little farther off the road. Unfortunately, we ended up not liking it near as much as the old place. We didn't have any road noise, but couldn't hear the ocean at all, and still had leaf blowers to contend with (which I'm sure is the case with any property). I won't review the condo itself since they're individually-owned. Ours was well taken care of, and the owner was awesome. We just didn't really like the layout of the condo (odd bathroom layout, and bedrooms are noisy). So this review is meant to address the Kihei Akahi property in general. We were on the 6th floor of the D building, so our view was pretty good, although you do still have to zoom past all the other neighboring condos to get an unobstructed pic of the ocean. But the view from the lanai was hands-down the best part of the condo. Unfortunately, due to being so far off the road and being surrounded by other condos, the sound of HVAC systems drowned out the sound of the ocean. Our condo didn’t have air conditioning, and honestly I don’t want it when we’re on Maui. I love to have to have ALL doors and windows wide open to let the breezes blow through, and this is a MUST when you don’t have AC. Unfortunately, the bedroom windows at Kihei Akahi directly face the exterior walkways and the parking lot. Even though we were up on the 6th floor, we could hear all parking lot noise as if it was right outside our window. As an added "bonus" the elevator and trash chute were literally right outside our bedroom window as well. We were startled awake more than a handful of times during our stay by people walking by having loud conversations late at night or very early morning, and/or slamming the trash chute at 5 AM! It got rather annoying. The trash chute is supposed to be locked from 9 PM to 8 AM, but they don't actually lock it. I suspect that's because ignorant people would end up just leaving their trash sit there outside of those hours. If you’re staying in the D building, your lanai is directly on top of the pool out front as well. So expect to hear everything that goes on at the pool until 9 PM every night. When trying to relax on the lanai, you're surrounded by so many other condos. Which means... more people. And more noise. At one point there was so much "people noise" from the pool and condos around us, plus a couple different car alarms going off in the parking garage directly next door, I felt like I was on the south side of Chicago in a Shameless episode. All of the noise was just disappointing in general. Also the D building is at the furthest point at the top of the complex, and it was a bit more of a hike to the beach than we would have preferred. And certainly a hike if you're trying to walk to dinner at Moose's or Fred's, or shopping. The hike up that hill was particularly daunting after a large dinner! The plus side to that is, nobody gained any weight while on this vacation. But if you have any issues with walking at all, pick a condo closer to the road. My final complaint was that the people in the condo directly below us didn’t obey the “no smoking” rule at all. I realize this is something we should have called the office about, but we’re just not that kind of people. But we got smoked out while sitting on our lanai a couple of times. That was kind of whatever, we were outside, no big deal. But one night they were smoking tough on their lanai at midnight, and we had our bedroom windows shut in hopes of drowning out any noise coming from the corridor and parking lot. The fans we had going in the condo to keep it cool drew their smoke all the way through our condo and filled up our bedroom. I woke up choking on what I assume was “cigar” smoke at midnight. We just couldn’t win in this place. I don’t think we got a good night’s sleep the entire stay, for one reason or another. The GOOD of this complex is: it IS indeed within walking distance to Kam II, despite the hike back up the hill. The property itself is very pretty. The BBQ grills at the pool came in handy and were kept very clean by the hard-working staff. In summary, too many people, too loud, won’t stay there again.

    The highlight for me was that we could walk across the road and go to a beautiful beach with easy access and swim with the turtles. Restaurants are close by. This is a very well kept condo complex and reasonably prices for Maui. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Room C606 had no window in the bedroom so was very dark but the view from the balcony made up for that. C316 had a fantastic garden view and C409 had a bit of everything.

    Condo was perfect for us! Great location, well kept condo, very well supplied with everything that we could possibly need for a beach vacation. Pools and tennis courts too! There are quiet hours listed after 10:00. If you are located in the upper levels, there even is an elevator for you. Great when you are moving in with suitcases and kiddos!
