Kihei Akahi For Sale
Built With The Future In Mind
In 1976, visionary architects began to oversee the construction of the Kilauea, Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Haleakala buildings to create the Kihei Akahi Complex. Instead of the copy and paste style of most modern complexes, each of these buildings is uniquely designed to amplify the feel of being in a tropical paradise. Today, condos at Kihei Akahi come up for sale fairly often.
Spaced out over a gentle slope, the buildings vary significantly in size. This uniqueness of construction, combined with the lush tropical landscaping, accentuates the relaxed vibe of the complex. Furthering the ‘quiet afternoon’ ideal, dotted around the property are suitable amenities that enable the enjoyment of the outdoors.
These include swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, and tennis courts all of which are well-maintained and provide plenty of seating. Considering the acreage of the property, over 6 acres (6.7 to be exact), the Kihei Akahi Condominiums have the space for the ultimate Hawaiian lifestyle.
Each Building is Unique
Comprising four buildings, there is a total of 240 condominiums in the complex ranging from studio apartments to two-bedroom units. Each building has a unique Hawaiian name but has also been labeled for construction and real estate purposes as Buildings A, B, C, and D.
While each building is different, there are similarities in that Buildings A and B are both two-story wood-frame constructions and Buildings C and D utilize concrete construction and have two elevators each as they both are at least 6 stories tall.
The west-facing Building A, which is the smallest, is named Kilauea and features eight townhouse-style condos. Out of the entire complex, these units are the most uniform, each one is 2 bedrooms and sufficiently spacious to make them considered among the most elegant condominiums of the complex.
Facing north and named according to the beautiful Maui mountains, Mauna Loa (translated as Long Mountain), is Building B. Like Building A, Mauna Loa is a two-story building but has five units on each floor. Again, like the units in Kilauea, these units are all two-bedrooms making them some of the bigger condos in the complex.3
Its name meaning white mountain, Mauna Kea is Building C in the Kihei Akahi Complex. The structure is south-facing (towards building B) and since it is six stories, some of the upper units enjoy marvelous ocean vistas. Mauna Kea has 11 studio apartments, 88 one-bedroom condos, and 11 two-bedroom units totaling 110 condominiums.
An impressive seven stories, Building D has been granted the name of Haleakala which, rather grandiosely, means the House of the Sun. However, it truly lives up to its name because of the phenomenal sunrise views on offer. As the largest of the Kihei Akahi roster, Building D has 112 condos with 14 of them being studios, 84 being one-bedrooms and 14 being two-bedroom units. As it is constructed on the highest elevation of the property, Haleakala gives its residents those highly prized views and is the furthest from any potential noise from the main road.
