About Daniel

I've always been a sun worshiper by nature, so it's not a huge leap to have made it to Maui. Oddly enough, I have spent a lot of years in Alaska, and now seem to have the perfect combination of places I love. Maui will always be my favorite though, and sharing it with others is just a lot of fun. It's great to hear the great reviews and to have people echo my sentiments, almost to the tee; about all the great things Maui has to offer and the accommodations I try to provide while they are here.

Daniel purchased this condo in 2012

Why Daniel chose Kihei

After vacationing on Maui several years ago, I knew right then that I had to buy a slice of this island for myself. Some way, some how. Through a series of incredible circumstances that fell into place, almost miraculously. . . . . THAT led to turning my first condo into a vacation rental. This brought me great joy and afforded a sweet place to stay when I vacationed here again. Then a 2nd studio, led to a third studio, and the rest is fate.

What makes this condo unique

I think I love the awesome view of Mt Haleakala the best. Going to the top is the pinnacle, but it's a stunning view from the lanai, any time of day. If you get too much sun, this studio is the ultimate in luxury and extravagance. From the Granite and Cherry Wood Cabinets, to the full array of new appliances in the Kitchen, this place invites you to stay in and entertain. Of course the pools are a few steps away, and the ocean about a minutes walk, just across the street, but chilling indoors, has never been more pleasant. Being a corner unit, it also affords less adjacent neighbors and twice the sunlight and windows. A great breeze always blows thru, if you want Mother Nature's own cooling system. If not, there's a new AC unit too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thanks for your prompt responses! I submitted inquiries to a few condos, but as your condo was the one we were most excited about and you responded first - it was a very easy decision. Your attention to detail and complete disclosure of information has given us a lot of peace of mind leading up to our vacation."

"Thank you for a wonderful first impression".

It was a very clean and quiet place to stay for me and my mom central to everything...

  • 5 of 5

It was like home away from home ...quaint and comfortable. My mom got plenty of rest and enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. We ordered out the first few days but then realized that the grocery store was 10 minutes away. Transportation with uber there and back was a breeze. The pots and pans, etc. and everything we needed to cook our food was provided. It was great having access to the stove and fridge because where we started our vacation (San Diego) did not. The washer and dryer worked perfectly. The days spent at the beach was wonderful ..thanks for the equipment, chair and umbrella...only a few minute walk from the condo. I also got the much needed rest. That time zone back home vs Maui time made all difference (6 hours). I kept waking up thinking it was later than it was.. I will definitely be back to take advantage of other activities on the island. Mahalo, Barbara and Bessie

Great place to stay for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is such a great place to stay, it’s literally across the street from the beach, very central to many shops and restaurants, and inside is great! He provides pretty much everything you need, from shampoo to towels, snorkel equipment and beach chairs! It’s perfect to be able to buy your own groceries and do some cooking if you don’t feel like going out to eat. There are 2 pools that also have bbqs you are welcome to use. The condo was clean and welcoming, easy to navigate and the perfect location. It’s about equidistant from Wailea and the bar scene in Kihei. I would stay here again and again upon my return to Maui. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Aloha Corey, Thanks for the awesome review. Yes, most people comment on loving the location. Glad I provided what you needed too. Vacations are expensive enough without having to go out and buy a bunch of stuff you can't take home. Do hope you can return again. Maui has the effect on people. Mahalo, Daniel

We were there for couple of days. The place was very clean. Small items of daily use were available which made it convenient.

Owner's Response: Aloha Satinder, I spoke with you, mid-way thru your two nights and everything was great you said. You only give me 4 out 5 stars. I think your comment meant, that there were daily amenities you didn't have to go buy, that made things easy for you. I realize that you don't know how crucial it is for owners to get 5 stars, unless they don't deserve it. A guest once LOVED my condo, but only gave me 4-stars because the wind was howling while she was there, her couple days. Come on people . . . . you love my place, give up the stars . . . lol. Thanks Satinder . . . Daniel

Studio exactly as described...Daniel a great host

  • 5 of 5

This suite was perfect for a 4 week stay in Kihei for 2 of us over the Christmas period. Akahi Kihei is in a great location for the best beaches, shops and casual dining. The suite is in the block farthest from the beach but still only a few minutes walk to the water, sand, reefs and turtles...

The suite is very tastefully updated and well equipped for dining in, lounging on the lanai or poolside, of which there are 2, and like the rest of the common areas of the complex, are kept very clean. The suite also has everything you need for the beach including chairs, umbrellas, boogey boards and snorkels.

Daniel is a great host, lives in Kula and is around the complex almost every day, making sure you have all you need and everything is functioning well.

All in all we had a great visit and definitely felt the suite was value for money.....thanks Daniel, we hope to be back....Mahalo

Owner's Response: Aloha David & Susan, Thanks for an amazing review! You two were awesome guests. Such a pleasure to have you for a month. I think you left the place as clean as we did, so many Mahalos for that, and for taking the time to post this, a month and a half after your stay. I do hope you can come back again next year, when Mother Maui calls . . . Gratefully . . .. . . Daniel

Car: recommended

This is just an amazing location. It is centrally located to everything you need. You really wouldn't NEED a car, but I recommend getting out and seeing the island. There are so many great things to see on Maui. You could spend a year, and not see everything, but do check out the top of Haleakala (over 10,000 ft) and the Road to Hana, are a must do.
