PERFECT for Whale Watching Part 1

  • 5 of 5
I selected this condo for the unobstructed 180 degree view. Condo is smack on the water. The condo sea wall has waves splashing on it during high tide. Whales come very close, almost to the breakers, turtles like the reef right out front. Snorkelers, kite surfers, boogie boarders, canoes all fun to watch. Tall lanai chairs perfect for viewing. We rarely left the condo except for groceries and felt we had plenty of room. We spent most of every day on the lanai eating many of our meals there. Despite overcast weather we spent all day most every day watching whales and taking photos. We got photos of some gorgeous sunsets. Some of the whales use a channel very near breakers in front of 504 so lots of close whale activity for watching and photographing. Whale watching outboard canoes sit in the channel to wait for whales. One group of canoes had a whale hang out with them entertaining them for over half hour including a breach! Sunday we saw continuous whales from sunrise to sunset. A pod of spinner dolphins came through the closest channel - lots of leaping fun to watch. Saturday a snorkeler was followed, then surrounded by 4 small turtles - snorkeler swam off and they followed for a while before returning to browsing for algae on the reef. King bed very comfortable. Wave sounds perfect for lulling to sleep. Closet and drawer storage adequate for 2 people. Bath crowded but workable for one person at a time. Lots of drawer storage! Wonderful shower - roomy with great shelves for your soap, nice pressure for washing off sand stuck inside bathing suit - be sure to use the foot wash by the beach stairs to get sand off before you enter the building. I like the convenient squeegee for the glass shower door. Love the glass block wall and lovely picture on tile wall.
Kitchen is compact, but has EVERY thing you could need. Review cupboards before shopping - nice selection of spices etc. Follow instructions for the garbage disposal. I kept a closed plastic bag next to the sink to add fibrous food during the day and dropped it down the super convenient trash chute directly across the hall each night. Keep open packages in the refrigerator (cereal and bread). These practices will help prevent the tiny but determined Maui sugar ants from finding anything. TV and DVD work great - be sure to follow instructions carefully. Wonderful lanai doors are smooth and easy to move so be gentle - force not needed.
NOTE: Leave door key in lock for 3 seconds until green light on.

FORGET THE HYATT BOOK THE MAUI KAI CONDO 504

  • 5 of 5
We love the Maui Kai Condo #504 and we look forward to returning there year after year. It is everything you would want in a condo plus the location is grrreat and the price is very reasonable. From the time you pull up in the parking lot and realize you don't have to battle for a space that literally sets the tone of your stay! But "the biggie" is when you actually open the door to Condo #504 and see the unbelievable view of the ocean and the gorgeous sunset. You know you have arrived in Paradise! Your visit to Maui becomes about the beautiful, quiet sandy beach, the turtles, the whales and the colorful fish that are residing peacefully below your lanai. Do you like to run or walk? No problem. The new ocean side boardwalk starts next door and extends past Whaler's Village and all the way to the Hyatt. Speaking of the Hyatt we have close friends that stayed there and were clearly, disappointed. They felt it was very expensive for "just" a room with no ocean view and the hotel itself had become very dated. They were awed by Condo #504. They could not believe the spectacular view, the roominess and the "aaaah" comfort. The Maui Kai is all about pleasing it's visitors from the well stocked kitchen to the king size bed that the wonderful owners, Al and Lyn provide. Our friends will definitely be staying in Condo #504 at the Maui Kai next year. Our jewel of a find has become their jewel of a find! FORGET THE HYATT BOOK THE MAUI KAI CONDO 504!
