Guestbook comments from the owner
The view from the lanai is breathtaking, and when I am stressed, I imagine myself back there, looking out at whales jumping and sprouting in the gentle ocean off our condo, and enjoying the views of all the islands I can see in the distance.



I could also look down on my children on the beach or in the pool.



This is my idea of a perfect place to be.

John and Betty Champion were original owners in the Mana Kai Maui, and the Champion family has attended every annual owner's meeting since the Resort opened in 1973. This award winning resort is located on one of the most magnificent beaches in the world. The Mana Kai Resort recently underwent a $30 million dollar remodel and for beach walkers, Keawakapu Beach meets the Wailea beaches, and you can walk continuously over a mile south. Directly below our ocean end unit is magnificent snorkeling, with hundreds of varieties of fish and plants, including Hawaii's protected sea turtles. Our lanai faces a channel which is a breeding ground for whales, and during the winter months, you can see them spouting, breaching, and frolicking in the ocean. Expect to say WOW when you see this unit. 'NO KA OI' (there is none better).

Liz O'Scanlon purchased this condo in 1973

There are totally unobstructed views from every room of Mana Kai 501. The back bedroom has no walkway outside, so the drapes can stay open to enjoy the full beauty of the ocean. The fifth floor is the perfect location in this eight story building, not too low, not too high.

501 has a fully equipped kitchen with specialty items such as a deluxe expreso/cappuccino/coffee maker, blender, and other extras to make your stay more enjoyable. There is a desk in each of the the front and back units, two flat screen TVs, BluRays, complementary WIFI, and even a printer available for your use.

Family Trip

  • 5 of 5
This condo was excellent. Beautifully maintained. The condo was stocked with beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, coolers. Everything we needed. We traveled with our kids ages 11 and 8, perfect location for the family. The beach was right outside and never crowded. We rented both the A and B units plenty of room. If I get a chance to go back to Maui I would stay here again.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I had stayed in the B unit last year and booked the whole condo for our stay this year with our son, DIL and 2 grandsons. The condo is amazing, fully equipped down to boogie boards, snorkel gear and coolers. The kitchen also has everything you could possibly need. Everything was very clean and the cleaning staff did an exceptional job on the mid stay cleaning.
The location of the condo can't be beat. The beach is one of Maui's best. We enjoyed snorkeling nearly everyday and saw turtles, many fish over beautiful coral beds. The grandkid's loved the pool and there are plenty of lounge chairs. Throw in amazing sunsets and watching whales from the lanai and it meets any expectations.
There is a convenience store on location that we used often, the restaurant has a great happy hour and the activity desk and beach equipment rental both complete any needs.
Any complaints? If I had to be picky - maybe the WiFi was a little spotty. Other than that the condo was fantastic, the owners great to work with and a perfect location.

Superior is a perfect description of this unit

  • 5 of 5
I have been staying in this unit for years because the location of the unit is at the water's edge with the most spectacular views in all directions. The beach is the most beautiful on Maui, perhaps on all the islands. The building is located away from all the major hotel crowds. The remodeling is gorgeous. The experience on this island and at this specific location is priceless.

The Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't say it any better. Been visiting here since 1975. Friends have stayed elsewhere on Maui and after being to their places we've found the Mana Kai and #501 to be the best place to stay. With the excellent update on the unit and all of the amenities and comfort we haven't found any better. It's like being HOME, far away from home and on a piece of paradise. 501 is very well maintained and housekeeping has kept it immaculate. It has changed a bit but only for the better. The owners have been pleasant, gracious and very understanding. Liz and Jay are great to work with, just like their mom and dad were. We are back home now in Oklahoma but our minds and memories still linger on our past week's experience, long to be remembered. God willing we will be back! Thanks Liz for the warm reception.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect location for a relaxing family vacation. The beds were comfortable and everything was just as the pictures were shown. The condo is well stocked with most items you need. The staff & management who run the building are friendly and helpful. Having a restaurant, deli and beach gear rental on site was very convenient. Boogie boards were only $20 per weekly rental. The beach is ideal for young children. The best time for the beach is to be there in the morning as the water is calmer. Because the beach was steps away we didn't think we needed the pool but we were wrong. It was really nice to go for a dip in the pool after the beach. It was so convenient that we had easy access to both beach and pool! We actually did not to go to any other beach. For beginner snorkelers the reef next to the building is perfect. Further down the beach, without even going in the water, we were able to see turtles coming up for air. Delightful! The condo owners and their onsite management were prompt and very easy to deal with and made for a worry free vacation. Thank you for having your place available for others! Unit 501 is the best location because it is at the end of building closest to the beach...very private. We highly recommend this unit to anyone wishing to stay at Mana Kai. Mahalo!

Our beach in South Kihei faces West offering magnificent sunsets YEAR AROUND! From our apartment and lanai on the 5th floor, there is an outstanding view of Keawakapu beach with the islands of Kahoolawe, Molokini and Lanai. The Studio bedroom has unobstructed views of the Ocean, North Kehei, Lanai, Molokini and the West Maui Mountains.

You will enjoy spectacular sunrises over Haleakala with brilliant colors extending over the ocean and in the evening, brilliant sunsets over the ocean. During the winter months, Dec through March, whale watching is very popular and green sea turtles are abundant year around.

Mana Kai Resort has an ocean activity center and equipment rental on the ground level. We are located on a reef where coral and sea life abound. Snorkeling is best in the morning hours.

Our lawn and pool areas offer lounge chairs in the sun or under the palms for your pleasure.
