Nothing is closer to the water or more private.

Totally impressed with the view. Beautifully appointed and appreciated the little extras to help out trips to the beach, like large beach towels, coolers, mats, etc.

Stunning view from this corner unit

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable luxury condo with spectacular views. The condo and location fully lived up to our expectations.

We saw so many whales, including mom's and babies, right from our lanai. The beach was accessible right from the Maui Kai or we could walk on the boardwalk and take in the bar/restaurants. The grocery store was a short walk alway, along with the fish market and more. The pool was lovely and private, never crowded for the 3 weeks we were there.

We rented a car and found we were well located for touring around Maui.

We would definitely recommend this beautiful condo!

When you book the same condo twice that means you enjoyed it.

  • 4 of 5

We booked this condo during a previous visit to Maui and when we decided we were making that trip again, we immediately went to check and see if it was available. It is very popular so needs to be booked months in advance. The complex is smaller than most in the area but directly on the beach. There are large windows on two side (one with the patio) so you can see quite a distance from the 10th floor. The pool area is very private and always has lounge chairs available so no need to get up early to rush out and "save your chair". Plenty of parking and you can walk to many smaller eateries and the grocery store. Kitchen has everything you need. We really enjoyed our time and Maui and staying at the Maui Kai.

Not as expected

  • 3 of 5

The view was amazing the condo however had a few issues Only very hot water in the kitchen sink, refrigerator leaked out the bottom all over the floor refrigerator look is not stainless???? air conditioning was so loud it continue to wake us up constantly in the master bedroom as it came on and off. The condo overall needs a little TLC drawer in the bathroom does not work properly shower is difficult to use and needs to be carefully turned off so it does not drip continually. Being on vacation we did not bring attention to these matters while we were there because we didn't want to deal with anyone coming in to service things. We just went through a complete remodel on our own home and had no desire dealing with home repairs we did however let the management team know via email of the issues and they said they repaired after our visit. I guess the next guess we'll find out We had a great 20th year anniversary and enjoyed Maui however the condo was disappointing.

Owner's Response: Its always heart breaking to receive a review like this when we pride ourselves on excellence and being the best the Maui Kai building has to offer. What is even more disturbing is when a guest lets us know of problems after their stay or refuses to allow us entry to make corrections during their stay. The issues reported by this guest took less than two hours to correct and were corrected immediately after they checked out. We live on another island and have an onsite manager and maintenance technician to correct any noted problems but again when a guest does not allow us to make corrections our hands are tied. As for the stainless steel refrigerator we purchased along with every other appliance in this condo we selected a polished stainless steel finish. There are two types of stainless steel: Brushed and polished. The guest seem to have a preference for brushed stainless steel rather than polished stainless steel and Im assuming that is the finish option they selected for their home remodel. People have different taste and different preference and we stand behind our preference for a polished finish and this would mark the first time someone has questioned the material makeup of an appliance.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for our honeymoon and it was amazing. The views from the lanai are unsurpassed and we could see turtles and fish swimming by below every day. We didn't want to leave! My only complaints are the lack of lighting in the bathroom. It's very dark - especially in the shower! Also, the pictures & older reviews are misleading regarding the beach. It was washed out a couple of years ago by a hurricane so there is no direct beach access in front of the condo and there is no taking a walk down the beach as some reviewers mentioned. We had to use the beach at the resort next door or drive to a beach. The reasonable price, nicely updated condo and breathtaking views more than make up for the inconvenience. Go to The Snorkel Store nearby if you want to rent equipment. Very helpful staff and they gave us a bunch of coupons for local restaurants. Check out Miso Phat sushi - it's in a strip mall but the such is to die for - try the TNT roll! The Sea House on Napili Bay has a great happy hour. Overall a great stay in Maui, we hope to be back soon!

The View

This deluxe oceanfront corner condo boasts fantastic ocean views from every angle; the living room and kitchen have a large side picture window and huge glass sliding doors opening up to the expansive ocean horizon and gorgeous islands of Molokai and Lana'i. To add to the ocean beauty, we have installed floor to ceiling mirrors on the living room walls for reflected ocean views everywhere you look! luscious mountains behind you at the same time, West Maui mountain views to be had from the bedroom and bathroom.

Watch whales jump and teach their young during season (Dec-April) from your private balcony. Enjoy a sparkling coral reef year round from the mango wood outside furniture set. And all year long, be thrilled with the frequent visits of the Hawaiian Green sea turtles, considered sacred by the Native Hawaiians. If you are really lucky, you may spot the many pods of local spinner dolphins and the occasional monk sea frolicking in these protected waters of West Maui.

Other Activities: Mini Golf
