We travel a couple of times a year and almost always stay in private rentals with kitchen facilities. We prefer to prepare most of our own meals. The kitchen has top of the line appliances and cookware. It was well-stocked with the essentials for preparing meals. The bed was very comfortable and the unit was beautifully decorated. What we enjoyed the most was the private backyard with a hot tub that has great views during the day and stars at night. We ate all of our meals outdoors and made frequent use of the hot tub. Besides the comfort and beauty of the unit, we really liked the central location that allowed us to explore the whole island. Cindy gave us great advice. She was very helpful, but still respected our privacy. Mahana Ma Kai fit us perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.
