Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This beautiful Beachfront Condo on the third floor of the Mana Kai building (#304) has breath-taking unobstructed ocean views, and southerly views extending for miles down the Wailea coastline. It has all the amenities anyone needs for extended stays and yes, it is s FULLY AIR CONDITIONED unit, an even numbered unit ( and not by the elevators so it has a great ocean view from the B bedroom as well), a free reserved parking space, and quality furnishings and decor!

This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is ideal for families, or for one or two couples. There is a King bed in each bedroom, and the sofa in the living room turns into a Queen size bed.

It has a full kitchen stocked with dishes and cookware for the times that you want to stay in and have ocean-view dining on the large lanai or dining table. Want to grill instead? Just reserve one of the gas grills on the lawn at the front desk.

The ocean view is enhanced by a design which leaves the master bedroom open to the living area but also has a custom bamboo retractable shoji screen for privacy. You can literally see the ocean from every part of this condo!

There is an office center built into the second bedroom for the times you need to get some work done , and High-Speed wireless INTERNET is available at no additional charge.

This bedroom also has its own TV apart from the flat screen TV in the main living area.

Each bathroom has a hair dryer, beach towels and all the bath towels you'll need.

Enjoy the heated swimming pool with waterfall or snorkeling on the reefs at Keawapaku Beach just steps from the the Resort entrance. On premises is a Four Star restaurant, a Gourmet Convenience Store, a beach equipment Rental store, a Fitness Center, and an Activity Center to plan your outings.

During the December to March months you are sure to spot the Humpback whales that migrate 3000 miles from Alaska to the warm Maui waters, known to be the nation's primary mating and birthing grounds for this amazing mammal. Watch them jump and spout right from your lanai, or listen to their songs as you snorkel under the water. Just be careful not to run into a turtle! (It's happened ;)

And don't forget your golf clubs, because there are 5 world-class golf courses are just minutes away in Wailea and Makena.

The Mana Kai Maui Resort is located at the extreme south end of Kihei, bordering Wailea. This is a one of a kind property to be found at no other location in all of Maui. In addition, the Mana Kai continues to make improvements, keeping it a true first class resort.

About Yasmine

Hi! My name is Yasmine and my parents own 4 Mana Kai condos that I help rent and manage for them. I live in Washington State where my husband is in law enforcement and we have a few acres for our horses, chickens, and 3 boys to run wild. We've been married 15 years and love to travel, but it's getting harder now with the demands of school, sports, and music lessons. We still try to get to Maui at least twice a year though, with or without the kids!

Yasmine purchased this condo in 2008

Why Yasmine chose Kihei

My parents discovered the Mana Kai when I was young--probably about 7 or 8 years old--and then we became annual visitors, spending almost every spring break there until I graduated from High School. Then on their 35th wedding anniversary trip to Wailea, my parents got nostalgic and decided to invest in the resort that brought us so many happy memories. My siblings and I would spend hours on this beach, boogie boarding, body surfing, and playing in the sand. My Dad says there is a sort of 'magic' about this spot. We explored the rest of Maui and the other Hawaiian islands, but always kept coming back here. The combination of the angle and height of the building, sunny weather, and the family friendly beach makes it a unique spot on Maui. Also, the Mana Kai has become a fabulous resort with wonderful upgrades and amenities. I truly feel blessed to be able to share this piece of heaven with my children now.

What makes this condo unique

You just can't beat the view, every time we come it takes our breath away. We also love hearing the crash of the ocean waves, and often sleep with only the screen door shut so we can fall asleep to it. Jason likes to get up early, and every morning I would wake to see him on the lanai, sipping guava juice and watching the ocean. As a kid, I remember arriving at the Mana Kai and rushing through the lobby and onto the beach before my parents even had the luggage out of the car. Sometimes renters ask me, 'how far do we have to walk to the beach?', and I'm always so glad to answer that question: 'Just through the lobby, past the pool, and you're THERE!'

Great location, terrific amenities, amazing view

  • 4 of 5

The Mana Kai is a great place to stay when visiting on Maui. We have been coming to this resort for many years now and often rent from this owner. We will be back for sure.... We did have some maintenance issues this year but the owner's representative was quick to respond and most things were dealt with in a very timely fashion, including the delivery of a brand new toaster when ours broke. Missing Maui already....

This is our second vist to the manakai. We love it!

  • 5 of 5

The manakai Maui is a great family spot in Kihei. We like it because it's a smaller complex not as touristy as kanapali side. It has a great beach for snorkling, swimming and is kid friendly. There are also a lot of great local places to eat. We will definitely stay there again.

Wonderful Stay with AMAZING VIEWS in a well kept unit!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking! This is how you want to see Maui. A nice lava rock view on one side and a wonderul beach on the other. This place had a store, a restaurant, and the most amazing views! The kids got in the pool, but only once as the beach was just steps from the property.

The drive up to Lahaina was a little long, but if you stay down here you get great bodyboarding waves and a little more privacy than the west beaches.

We never had to fight for a spot on this beach, it never felt crowded.

We were happy to have an assigned parking spot, but the parking lot was not full even as such.

A few streets over we found 2 wonderful food trucks and brought the food back to our room to watch a gorgeous sunset! People sit out and watch the sunset each night on the grassy area.

The unit itself had 2 A/C units. We stayed in the secondary room with the rocks view so we could have our own private A/C. My kids got the beachfront view which they enjoyed. The sliding doors to the master weren't really made for privacy, but it certainly did open up the space and allow an area to mill about and look out the lanai windows. The whole wall was a window and with views like that you want it that way!

How I wish we had stayed on Maui after the Big Island because the next island rental was a let-down after Maui. Thanks so much!!!

Fantastic vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the accommodations at Mana Kai. The view is out of this world - you can hear the waves with the windows and doors closed, but we kept the sliding doors open 24/7. It was amazing how cool the condo stayed even when temps were warm. This condo is beautifully furnished, our bed was very comfortable (I have a bad back and this is very important to me!) and it felt like a home away from home. The owners are very attentive and respond via email in a timely manner. We had a small plumbing issue and they had it taken care of right away. I would have no problem renting from them again and highly recommend this as a place to stay if you are thinking of visiting Maui. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place with us. It was a week we will never forget.

Car: recommended

The Mana Kai is located ON Keawakapu beach-- a wonderfully sandy beach that doesn't get crazy-crowded. It is ideal for swimming, boogie boarding, and snorkeling. It is on the Southern and sunniest part of the island where the turtles and dolphins like to be. During certain months it is spectacular for whale-watching.
