Great central location with some negative points.
Traveled: October 2013.The listing description was accurate but of course; photos are the main selling points for most. The unit was in clean condition but by no means was it 'new or updated' the couch/sofa bed was in rough shape and the furnishing had definitely been through several guests and had their fare share or wear and tear. The amenities were all there but again, used, worn out and just kind of sad. Everything felt like a hand me down but again, we had everything that we needed as per the description. If anything the photos need to be updated from their current state. Overall our stay was nice. We enjoyed this ground floor unit and had everything we needed to cook and clean during our stay. Plates, wineglass, pots, pans, broom, swiffer, papertowels...everything. Really nice. The central location is very nice and the pool and BBQ area was a great feature. Parking was convenient and ample. During our stay we asked the owner Diana if she had wifi - she said no so we asked if it'd be okay to install a router that we could take home with us or leave with her and she could just pay us back. She said no problem and decided she would like us to keep it (the listing now says they offer FREE WIFI). I sent her a photo of the receipt via email and she said great, I'll send the money via cheque and it'll be there when you get back home. We are still waiting on the cheque. 1 year later. After many attempts to contact her she never again emailed me back. Therefor I would not recommend this unit on the fact that I was troubled that she just completely cut off communication. If something were to go wrong I would have to imagine she may not respond quickly or want to pay for a repair or have something fixed while in the unit. Overall I found this unit to be misleading however we had 3 other units booked by other family members and were all fairly pleased by their condos. So I would definitely book at the Akahi but perhaps skip this unit as the owner can be a bit flaky.
