About Gary Young

My wife and I grew up in Louisiana, but we LOVE the ocean. Ever since we honeymooned in Maui we've been going back to vacation as often as we can. As our family grew, we found Hawaii to be the perfect place to take the kids. They couldn't get enough of the ocean. They were just amazed the first time we took them snorkeling - they said, 'Cool, it's like swimming in giant a fish tank!' There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'Hawaii beach house.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! Sandy & Gary Young Baton Rouge, LA

What makes this condo unique

Thanks again for your interest in our condo # 203 it is truly one of the best.

Our two-bedroom deluxe ocean view superior suite, recently totally renovated (September) with Tommy Bahama furniture is our home away from home. The difference starts with our location, and by far one of the best. Located by the end of the building closest to the ocean. The front door is equipped with a coded push button lock, which offers the freedom of not having keys. The Lanai floored with 16 x 16 ceramic tiles and furnished with weaved polythurane-coated table,chairs and footstools. Sleep while listening to the ocean sound of the waves rolling. One bathroom offers a walk in rain shower with glass wall, which is unique to our facility but gives you the view of the entire coast of Maui. The second plush bathroom offers a full soaking tub and not just a standard tub. All bedrooms have 600 count linens on all beds with queen size feather pillows finished with black out curtains. Prepare all your home-cooked meals in our fully equipped Gourmet kitchen. This kitchen offers sub zero frig. (ice maker included) most do not, confection oven, micro wave, glass top stove, granite counter tops, and finished with low voltage lighting. In times of bad weather or just taking a break from the strong trade winds enjoy the central a/c through out the entire condo and not just a window unit located in one bedroom only. Additionally we have moved more walls creating more usable space. Thanks again for your interest in our condo and I hope you take the opportunity to visit with us.

Excellent Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations! The owner Gary was also very responsive and accommodating when we asked to extend our checkout time, and when we had a minor maintenance issue. Here are just a few things I would want to know prior to booking:

The Mana Kai condo building has a pretty darn perfect location. It's in Kihei, which is on the southern side of Maui and is less crowded/touristy than the northern side of the island (Lahaina). The condo is a short 5-10 minute drive from downtown Kihei, which has several cute little restaurants, and you can also drive 5 minutes south and get to Wailea, which has more upscale dining and shopping. The view from the balcony (and really the entire condo) is spectacular - the beach is almost directly under the balcony and you see Molokini Crater in the distance! Other perks about the location are that the condo building has a great restaurant - 5 Palms - on the first floor, which has an excellent happy hour ($7 Mai Tai's!). The building also has a convenience store in it, which was super handy, and a grass covered beach area with chairs/showers provided. Really, it can't get much better than that! Oh wait, it's also 5 minutes from the boat dock, which comes in very handy if you are planning any water excursions.

One minor thing to be aware of: one of the bedrooms is basically connected to the living room, and at night there is a retractable wall that you move into place to "create" the bedroom. The bedroom is therefore not super private, and it can also get pretty hot at night because the air conditioning does not circulate properly when the wall is closed. However, this issues were very minor and we would undoubtedly choose to stay here again!

Excellent Condo and location

  • 5 of 5

As most of the other reviews have said - this condo complex is in a perfect location. RIGHT ON THE BEACH and the snorkeling right outside the door is great. Mana Kai is perfectly located at the south end of Kihei - close enough to Kihei-town make for a quick drive to restaurants, groceries, equipment rentals, etc. but far enough off the beaten path to be a bit more quiet than the complexes that are right in Kihei. Great location for walks on the beach - north or south.

Gary (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with and this condo (#203) was very nice. Fairly-recently updated, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for your stay. If we come back to Maui, I will definitely be in touch with Gary to rent this unit again.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mana Kai #203 was excellent. We felt like the location was perfect to be able to go and see all the things we wanted to see and do in Maui. The Mana Kai was very family friendly, in fact we made friends with a few different families also traveling with kids while we were there. The condo was perfect for our needs. Amazing views, extremely comfortable beds, kitchen with all the necessary items. Condo has air conditioning which was a nice comfort to have. Gary was amazing to work with. I highly recommend this condo!!

Locations says it all! Impossible to beat the awesome views and great beach access. The well stocked kitchen made it easy to cook in and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the lanai while listening to waves crash. Unit was fresh, clean and well maintained. Hope to return on day soon.

Situated on Keawakapu beach, consistently voted as one of the best beaches in Hawaii. Excellent snorkeling steps from your front door. Unbeatable, unobstructed views down to Wailea Point and Makena.
