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!

Amazing top floor condo in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my wife and I. We loved the top floor condo with amazing views. Nothing better to wake up to an ocean view while vacationing. The condo was perfect for relaxing, cooking and had all the amenities. The unit is top floor and on the side so you have views both ways. Nicely updated, hardwood floors, newer appliances and windows all around. The building was great; had a BBQ, pool area with full kitchen, and hot tub. Wasn't too crowded like the big resort but your could walk to Dukes or nearby beaches in minutes. Would definitely recommend this condo and will be coming back as often as possible. Thank you!

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently booked a trip to Maui to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This was to be a once in lifetime adventure for 2 Canadians. This condo is a perfect gem, located on the ocean's edge and at the end of the beautiful golden sand beach in Kaanapali Shores. There is a spectacular view from the lanai and although we did some fine dining on the island we never wanted to leave the unit and often ate out on the private lanai enjoying watching frolicking whales and post card perfect sunsets. The condo is modern, clean and well equipped and the pool area was quiet and the BBQs are kept spotless. This is a very central location to both visit/shop in the quaint town of Lahania and explore the rugged, unspoiled shoreline of the Honolua area. There was no need to ever use the AC as there was always a constant ocean breeze with the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep. Needless to say this once in a lifetime experience has turned into "when can we go back" and we are dreaming about when we will return to this unit at the Maui Kai.

Beautiful spot close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We were overwhelmed the minute we walked into the condo. The location right on the water was exactly what we were looking for. Spotted several sea turtles and too many whales to even count. Location to the boardwalk was also a plus. We will definitely be back...

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Maui. We have been to Maui several times but I have to say that staying in this condo was the best of the best! It's an experience we will never forget! Being right on top of the ocean made us feel like we were on a cruise ship. I can't say enough great things about this unit but I will tell you we will be returning as soon as we can. We LOVED every minute of it and want to thank the owners for their quick response to any questions that we had along the way. You can't go wrong with staying here and I guarantee that your trip will be magical!

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
