The Renovation is INCREDIBLE!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Dore and Yolanda,

We have stayed at your place several times and always thought it was one of the nicest units at the Mana Kai. WOW, your renovation is unbelievable! You always had the unit decorated so beautifully making us feel warm and welcome to your beach condo; you have out done yourself in the new remodel! . The new kitchen and bathrooms are exquisite; the bamboo cupboards and granite counter tops are awesome and the new floor tile throughout the unit pulls it all together! We had another couple stay in the back bedroom and they said they had never stayed in such a nice place. Adding the air conditioner through out the entire unit was a nice addition, though most of the time we just enjoyed the ocean breeze through the sliding glass doors. You were right about the WHALES...we were able to see them off your deck looking out your fabulous view. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a great place to stay. It really is the best location and you two are fabulous hosts. We will book again with you for later this year. Aloha.

Among the best!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Maui many times and feel this unit is as nice as any we have stayed at. The owners are very nice people and great to work with. They helped us with a conflict that came up on our scheduling. Mornings and evenings are just beautiful. The unit had everything we needed.

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Dore & Yolanda!

We had such a wonderful time there in December and are already to go back! We felt so at home that we even added a couple items to the kitchen while we were there (BBQ tools, etc.) The people you have watching over your property are wonderful as were the 2 of you!! Thank you so much for making this wonderful vacation home available to us! We will definitely be back.

What a great vacation! Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

Our entire trip was just amazing and I truly believe the Mana Kai was the reason for that. Unit 511 was exactly as described. Lots of drawer and closet space for our clothes; loved the shower head in the bathroom. It made it easy to rinse off after spending a day on the beach. The decor and furniture made 'hanging out' in the evenings very homey. The only negative thing I have to point out, which is the only reason I did not give 5 stars, is the 2nd bedroom was supposed to have a king bed. But what it is is two twins pushed together....and they are different heights. That made for 7 horrible nights sleep for my 70 year old father. We would like to book this condo again for our Maui vacation next year, but my father refuses to sleep on that bed again. I am in the process of booking our vacation for next year, hopefully the owners of 511 will make some changes.

Otherwise, our stay was marvelous. We used some of the items in the closet, and even contributed back by leaving some beach toys. Thank you for a wonderful maui vacation.

Owner's Response: Dear Tracey. We have great news! Please let you father know that the twin beds in the second bedroom have been replaced with a beautiful brand new king size bed. See you guys next November! (if not sooner!) Mahalo, Yolanda & Dore

Fantastic Rental Unit

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a three week stay in unit #511 in Mana Kai. The unit was exactly as represented and the process of renting the unit was extremely easy. The Mana Kai is right on the ocean in a great location in South Kihei. We had a family reunion in Maui with 20 of my immediately family members. Four other units in the Mana Kai were rented by my siblings directly from the property management company and paid substantially more than we did.

We spent a lot of time searching for the right vacation rental property and were very pleased with unit #511.

Mahalo! The Lang Family.

Great Place, Great Owner, Unit could use a little upgrade

  • 4 of 5

This place (the Mana Kai) is awesome, and the 2011 building renovations make it even better. There just isn't a better place to stay in Kihei. This particular unit (511) is getting a little dated (could use new carpet, and other freshing up). Was in a couple units here to compare, and the more recently renovated ones are nicer.... but then again, for the amount of time you'll be inside... well... so what...

The owners are very nice, responsive, and easy to deal with. Would definately stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive response. This was by far our busiest year! As a result, our new carpets are being installed as I am writing this response. Other items have been updated as well. We look forward to seeing you next year! Mahalo, Yolanda & Dore
