Kihei Akahi: Maui’s Walkable Vacation Rental

I always used to tell people who were planning a visit to Maui that “you have to have a rental car!” because the island is large and diverse, and most of the adventures require a car to get to. Thanks to some innovations in crowd sourced transportation (Uber, Lyft etc), and since the introduction of the Maui Bus service, that’s not necessarily the case. And if you are looking for a lazy beach vacation that doesn’t require everyone piling into the car, then Kihei Akahi right smack in the heart of South Kihei is a winner.

Kihei Akahi Overview

  • Four buildings, A, B, C, and D
  • Apartment sizes ranging from studio to 2 bedroom, 2 bath
  • Two swimming pools each with barbecue area
  • One newly resurfaced tennis court with pickleball lines.
  • Vacation rentals allowed

What’s for dinner?

Those boots are made for walking, right? Actually, that would be slippahs here on Maui. So grab your slippahs and walk to any of the following restaurants:

  • Coconuts Fish Tacos
  • Cafe O’Lei
  • Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods and Cafe
  • Maui Tacos
  • Fred’s Mexican Cafe
  • Moose McGillycuddy’s
  • Bistro 808 and many more!

Walk to the Beach

Oh yes — then there’s the beach! A walk to the beach from Kihei Akahi just means crossing the new crosswalk right at the driveway complete with flashing “look out here we come” lights. The beach is right across the street from the main entrance. Off you go!
