The best location, the best beach, and the best part of Maui -- that's the Mana Kai. Located at the north end of Keawakapu Beach, you've got a mile long beach and some of the safest swimming and best snorkeling to enjoy.
The building is small enough to have a warm friendly feel but large enough to offer some great amenities such as a general store & deli,surf shop & rentals, yoga studio, a superior restaurant(the 5 Palms), and an activities center to help with any bookings you may need. Located just blocks north of Wailea, you have easy access to many golf courses, the Shops at Wailea, and all that south Maui has to offer.
The only thing between my unit and the ocean is the pool and grassy lawn for lounging. Being second from the ocean end of the building, the waves tranquilize you to sleep every evening in our king size beds. Both bedrooms have unobstructed views of the ocean so that you can always enjoy the view. Because of the floor plan of the unit, it may be rented in 3 different ways - as a 2 bed/2 bath full condo, as a 1 bed/1 bath full condo, or as a hotel room with just a bedroom and a bath.
Generally the trade winds keep you cool and comfortable, but every room has a ceiling fan and air conditioning is available. The building has free Wi-Fi for guests and is smoke free. There is a reserved parking spot for you and a laundry room at the elevators in the center of the building. Gas BBQ grills are available on the lawn.
To keep our unit in the best condition for your stay we are constantly updating. 2013 the main bath was converted into a walk-in shower and the whole unit was completely re-wallpapered. 2014 brought in new master bedroom furniture and bedding.
A friend told our parents about the Mana Kai back in 1987 when I was just an infant. They had always stayed on the north end of the island for many years prior and when they heard of the dryer weather, less traffic, and the friendlier more convenient environment, they had to try the Mana Kai. After one stay, they were sold! We rented units for many years until the time came that they could purchase their own little piece of paradise. We have been very fortunate to spend our spring breaks on the beach every year and our family memories of the MKM are the best! Now my brother and I have been blessed to take over ownership. Coming from Montana we keep our unit tropical in color and design. We want to feel like we are in paradise when we walk in the door.
Patty Cowles purchased this condo in 1997
The Mana Kai is so easy & convenient, especially with children. You can sit on the lawn, watch one in the ocean and one in the pool at the same time. Whenever you need something, the condo can be reached quickly as well as the deli/general store. This is one of the few places my father truly relaxes. He loves being right on the ocean, listening to the waves and reading under a palm tree. A feel of being totally away, but right in the US so the office is a phone call away.
Everything is right there - a true place to rest and relax as much or as little as you want. The island is full of activities and places to see.
We had a lovely stay in your unit at the Mana Kai. Not much snorkeling since the kona winds were blowing hard and making the surf very rough, but just being in the warmth and sun were great. Came back to snow, ice and slush (had to hike up our road at 1:30 AM to get home), so we really miss it!
You have thought of everything one could need in your condo…so well-supplied! The beds were comfy, linens great, and what a location! We enjoyed the Maui books and pamphlets under the TV, especially the Hawaii bird and fish books. Took your advice and went to Kimo’s one night (great spot) and brought in Maui Tacos a few evenings….perfect. Also made it over to Mama’s Fishhouse near the airport for a final lunch before flying out…fabulous.
Our favorite vacation spot is Maui. We have been coming here since the 80's and have stayed at the Mana Kai every time. (not every year-12 visits) We feel so lucky to stay at the Cowles condo. It is on the best beach on Maui; you literally walk right onto the beach from the property. The condo is like a home away from home. We have seen this property upgrade and change over the years; it just gets better & better. Why stay anywhere else when this is the BEST!
We have stayed at the Mana Kai every year for 20 years with family and friends. It is family friendly. Pool for the kids and adults, beach and snorkeling out the front door, ocean rentals on the property. You really have everything at your fingertips. The building continues to upgrade as well as the units. My niece and her new husband honeymooned here and found it wonderful. Can't beat the sunsets. The units are great for cooking if you don't feel like going out. Laundry facilities are located on each floor. Central to all kinds of activities. Security is very good 24/7.
This is the 2nd time I've stayed at the Mana Kai. The facilities are just really something special. We enjoyed the pool, grass lounging area and 5 Palms Restaurant (what a happy hour!) very much. The view from every single inch of the Mana Kai is incredible. It's right on the beach. A beautiful beach at that!
Our stay in Patty's condo was beyond relaxing. The sound of waves can be clearly heard from both bedroom suites. There were 3 of us women and plenty of space for us to spread out. We loved the beach themed motif. The kitchen includes every single item you would need to make delicious meals. And, the place is so tidy! It was honestly a home away from home.
Thank you Patty. We will definitely book this condo again in the future.
Location! One of the nicest beaches on Maui!
Location! Beautifully positioned Condo Complex at one end of the beach.. all condo units at the Mana Kai face the ocean!
Location! 2nd unit in from the ocean end 5th floor! How nice can you get?
This unit was well stocked and had a beautiful view. Wonderful trip... hope to stay again someday!
My husband and I enjoyed a truly delightful stay at your Mana Kai condo. It was perfect! We have stayed at the Mana Kai before but your condo was so comfortable and homey...it was harder to leave than ever! We signed your guest book with a note about how much we enjoyed our vacation and the wonderfulness of your condo. Today is a gloomy overcast day in Chicago, but I still feel warm thoughts of Maui and all the time spent on the lanai just watching the beach below. You're right-it is paradise!
Naturally we are already hoping to return next year at the same time. It would be wonderful to make plans in advance and look forward to another visit to Maui.
Thanks so much for your hospitality!
