Just a stroll across the street from Kihei Akahi Maui resort hotel and you’ll experience one of South Kihei’s trio of Kamaole Beaches, a white sand beach where swimming is fantastic, snorkeling is good on the rocky ends, and spotting humpback whales in winter is possible from shore. Located in South Maui, Kihei Akahi is sandwiched between North Kihei and Wailea, its upscale neighbor to the south. Kahului Airport is only a 25 minute drive from the property.
Even with the beach just a stone’s throw away, the well-kept grounds verdant and colorful with tropical foliage might make you want to stay in most of the time. After all, the Maui condo resort complex has two swimming pools, two tennis courts, shuffleboard court, and outdoor barbecue facilities. Kamaole Shopping Center is within walking distance and offers many Maui shops and restaurants including Coconut’s Fish Café, Café O’Lei Kihei, and the 808 Bistro and Deli.
All South Kihei condos for rent at Kihei Akahi hotel resort come with fully equipped kitchens, cable tv, washer and dryer. Kihei Akahi is a short walk away from great restaurants so you can always bring home a takeaway and put the microwave oven to good use. If you like to have coffee first thing in the morning, brew your own and savor your steaming pick-me-up while contemplating the well-manicured gardens, the ocean, or the mountains in the distance.
Maui Condo Vacation Rentals in Kihei
Set your watch to island time to set you up for a relaxed Hawaiian getaway. Wake up to inspiring views of the ocean, the lush tropical gardens, and the sparkling pool as you relax on your private lanai. You may also get to see the Molokini Crater and the West Maui Mountains from your balcony. While Kamaole II is a delightful place to catch sunsets, you only need to sit on your lanai to witness the sun slip below the horizon while enjoying a well-earned drink. Some Kihei Akahi vacation rentals come with partial ocean views and have elegant interior design and beautiful furnishings, so it’s up to you to choose which to trade off. You also have a selection of condo configurations that range from a studio vacation condominium to 1 or 2 bedroom Maui condo rentals sleep up to five guests.
The condominiums living room is temperature-controlled with air-conditioning, but you can always open the glass door to let the refreshing ocean breeze in to put you on a holiday mood. Relax in the plush sofa while catching up on your favorite book, TV program or movie, or planning the day’s adventure with the rest of your friends or family. Wireless internet and telephone service are available if you wish to stay in the loop.
As varied as the color palette of the condos as their owners’ preferences – off-white, pastels, warm – common design choices unify the condo rentals’ interior adornments. The décor, ornaments, and other embellishments are inspired by island living, marine-themed, and accentuated with Polynesian touches. Wicker and wood furniture are commonly utilized, with some South Kihei condo rentals renovated with bamboo or hardwood floors.
Breathe easy in the spacious atmosphere that greets you upon first arrival or welcomes you back after a day filled with adventure. Kihei Akahi condo rentals typically come with an open floor plan, so it’s easy to take in garden views while you’re preparing meals or enjoying one indoors in the dining area. Or take your meals outside altogether and take advantage of the resort’s gas BBQ grills. With a washer and dryer onsite, you can pack light and make room in your luggage for some more souvenirs. An elevator takes guests to their floors, so you’ll find it effortless to move about without having to worry if you can make it up the stairs.
South Kihei doesn’t get the stiff winds that normally stir up the sand and waters of North Kihei beaches, so an early morning stroll along the short, crescent-shaped beach of Kamaole II may be a pleasant way to start your day. Wrap up the day with a sunset walk before heading out to nearby Kamaole Shopping Center and restaurants for American and Hawaiian quick eats. In winter, scope out the waters for the unmistakable flukes signaling the arrival of humpback whales. Pick a spot right on the beach and be amazed by the whales’ antics.
You don’t have to venture out to Molokini Crater for snorkeling, although you can leave for an expedition from Maalaea Harbor about half an hour’s drive north. And while Maalaea is renowned for its fast right-hand breaks, if you’re just stepping onto the board for the first time, the Cove Park about a mile up the road from Kihei Akahi will serve you better. Here you’ll find shops offering surfing lessons and gear rental, so you can practically just show up and grab some gear and be on the water in no time.
If you don’t mind the crowd, especially on weekends, Kamaole Beach Park III has choppier waters in the afternoon that are more suitable to bodyboarding if you’re not yet ready with the harder surfboard. If it’s just swimming that you’re after, Kamaole II and its big sister Kamaole I have sandy bottoms – and beautiful crescent-shaped shoreline – that make for an inviting dip.
