This Boutique property has a PANORAMIC VIEW and everything you will need for a dream vacation. The MAUI KAI resort is the closest to the water's edge that you can find on Maui. We are just a few feet from the ocean and the beach, which stretches for miles. In the evening you can watch the amazingly beautiful sunsets all year round. From November to April whale watching is a highlight right from the lanai and for those who like to swim, there are often turtles a few yards from the shore.

BUILDING IS A NON-SMOKING BUILDING. Located on the fourth floor with approximately 860 square feet of living space,with central air conditioning. This unit has a 180 degree panoramic view of the ocean as well as the islands of Molokai and Lanai. The apartment itself is modern and ideal for accommodating a family as there are two sofa beds also a folding futon aside from the bed in the bedroom. The lanai is enclosed with large sliding screens and windows, that open so that you can enjoy the view and the proximity to the beach.

We can accomodate 2 adults and two children. We cannot accomodate four adults.

The location of this unit can't be beat! It's so close to the water; you couldn't get a better view. Shopping and restaurants are very convenient too.

Best of all, Kaanapali beach is at your doorstep. We walked along it every day. In our opinion it's the nicest beach on the island.

Prices were affordable and bookings were made easily and in a friendly manner. We would definitely recommend this to others. We will be back!!

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Maui Kai #405 for 6 nights in July of 2017. Choosing where to stay was very important to us because we were celebrating 34 years of marriage, had never been to Hawaii before, but still needed to stay within a budget. The condo was clean, spacious and had a beautiful view of the ocean from the lanai. Ahhh the sunsets! The kitchen had anything you might need from making morning coffee to complete meals. The bed was comfortable. There were plenty of extra towels, pillows and bedding and there was a washer and dryer just down the hall (bring quarters and laundry soap!).

The pool, though small, was clean, warm, inviting and not too busy.

The location of the condo was very convenient to Lahaina and snorkeling beaches and there was a grocery store right across the street.

Jennifer and Charlie were very attentive hosts. They answered any questions we had prior to and after booking, and addressed my concerns about the ongoing construction.

Charlie was the officiant when we renewed our wedding vows, and he made the experience very memorable, even taking pictures for us. If you are thinking about renewing your vows, consider having Charlie officiate.

Buy a styrofoam cooler at Wal-mart or Costo before you head over to the condo. You will use it every day!

We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!

Just okay

  • 2 of 5

The owners were very nice to work with and ,although we knew there would be some construction on the property, we had no clue as to the extent. There was scaffolding with workers that went up and down in front of our windows constantly, affording no privacy. We had one full day without water! Then, they informed us we would have to move due to removal of the the window. Needless to say, we were not happy! They offered us a studio for the price we were paying for the one bedroom. After 4 days of this, we relocated to another hotel for the remainder of our vacation. The unit was okay, but the pictures are misleading. There is not an open balcony; it has been enclosed and thus makes the unit feel closed off. It has been well used and needs some updating.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about this couple's experience staying in my condo in the middle of May 2017. It was indeed very unfortunate . As the guest has stated, they knew that there was remediation work ongoing during their stay and I had reduced the rate to a fraction of my present normal rental rate. They made the decision to keep their reservation. Unfortunately, while they were staying, the management informed me that in order to repair the wall, my lanai windows had to be removed and therefore I had to ask my guests to vacate the unit. I had not been expecting this turn of events and I immediately fully refunded them for the days they would not be staying and I offered to help my guests find another place to stay. I am an independent owner and not associated with the Maui Kai rental program, however they kindly offered to help my guests. Unfortunately they did not have a 1 bedroom unit available and so could only offer a studio. As the Maui Kai charges more than I do, the studio was the same price as my one bedroom unit. The couple chose to go elsewhere, which they did. Everything was very cordial between us all. I do take a little bit of exception to two of the statements . The first one about not having water for the day is not really accurate because that was the day they were moving out and so not really while they were staying. Secondly the comment about the lanai and the photos being misleading. I have had other guests tell me that the photos don't do proper justice to my unit and the lanai may be enclosed but the huge windows open right up exposing a wonderful panoramic view and it definitely is a lanai. It's handy to be able to close the windows sometimes during inclement weather. Lastly although I do sympathize greatly with this couple's experience, please remember they paid very little to begin with and this was a one time experience with the present construction. You can read all my wonderful reviews from guests who love my unit, two couples even find it the best unit they have stayed in at the Maui Kai. The construction work is well past the worst now and my unit has been completed. The work on the remainder of the building will be finished at the end of the summer and every week the work becomes less intrusive for everybody. I hope this helps future guests. Please read my other positive reviews. For further information, please check with me. Aloha Jennifer
