About the property

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

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 out on the lawn with 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 hairdryer and beach towels besides 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 with a great happy hour,, a Gourmet Convenience Store, beach 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. And because of some of the improvement renovations taking place in 2017, you can enjoy our lowest rates from now through October! Book now, these discounted rates won't last long!

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 Maui

My parents discovered the Mana Kai when I was young--probably about 7 or 8 years old--and then we became annual visitors, spending every spring break there until I graduated from High School. Then a few years ago, on an anniversary trip, my parents 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 of the building, the 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 feel truly blessed that I now get to share this piece of heaven with my own children.

What makes this condo unique

You just can't beat the view, everytime 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!'

Nice, clean, ocean view unit

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our trip to Maui. We stayed in this unit 5 nights. When we arrived, we had trouble getting in, as our door code didn't work. Fortunately, I was able to finally get a hold of the owner's maintenance assistant (owner-owned/operated, this unit has nothing to do with the front desk). He gave us a code to get in, but it was not the code we were supposed to use. We never did hear back from the property manager for a new code, but it was ok, as we were able to use the code their maintenance guy have us going forward.

The unit itself was very clean, open and had wonderful view of the ocean from the lanai. You could hear the waves roll in at night which was really cool.

Condo amenities were limited. If you plan on staying 5 nights or more, you will need to make a trip to the store for toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo and conditioner (none was provided, even the little bottles), spices, coffee, coffee condiments, etc. It had two very small rolls of toilet paper, one roll of paper towels, dish soap and absolutely nothing else besides two small bars of soap and salt and paper. It did have an ice maker and kitchenware so we were able to cook most nights and have cold beverages. We thought the limited house ware amenities was a little odd for a VRBO condo but I guess every owner is different. They did have beach towels, a small portable cooler and and some beach chairs, which we used frequently.

The Mana Kai resort was in a great location at the end of Keawakupu beach. It had a small oceanside pool, a bar (although you have to drink/eat at the bar - no drinks or poolside food to go), a restaurant (which we didn't eat at) and a great little store that had everything (ie toilet paper, beach tumblers, etc). I think the gym they had was put in recently and it was great for a small, condo gym. No view but it had everything you could really need.

My husband and I also took advantage of the sports shack where they rented everything from kayaks to bikes and fishing rods. We kayaked one morning and the price for a double was actually quite good. I had seen $65 at other places in-town but it was only $50 for four hours here. Not bad for a beachfront resort!

All-in-all, besides a few small issues (and things to note for future stays), but our time there was great. We would return again.

This condo has everything you need including the great views.

  • 5 of 5

This top floor condo was great and even more than we hoped. Newly updated with all the conveniences of home. Our last 4 days we didn't have a car and didn't miss it at all as Uber was mostly available too. The location is perfect for snorkeling, beach time and with restaurants nearby you have the ability to relax. Stay here, you will not be disappointed!

Great oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 7 nights. The condo has everything from towels to cooking gadgets. The views from the balcony are spectacular. There were 6 of us and we used both beds and a pull out couch. We cooked in the condo a lot. They provide wifi, beach towels. You can purchase tokens to do laundry on site which was very needed with two small kids. There is a small store on the first floor and a pool plus a restaurant. The beach was right there so no need to drive. Condo was remodelled. There was construction going on in the building but we did not hear much noise from it. I would go back here. Very spacious place.

Overall great experience...

  • 5 of 5

Overall a wonderful building and unit, have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. We were here for 4 nights prior to heading down to the other end of the island and it was amazing. Five Palms is a great restaurant and great to have right there, there sushi happy hour is an unbelievable value. The beach is right outside the door unlike most locations in Kihei where you need to cross over the street, so super convenient. My kids were literally having to avoid the sea turtles in the ocean right outside the condo tower, they were consistently just swimming up to us and hanging out throughout the day. We saw considerably more sea turtles here than on the "sea turtle snorkel excursion" we went on...

Overall, we will definitely try to rent in this tower again, and would love to get this exact unit. Thanks again!
