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 has just undergone a 25 million dollar facelift, making it a first rate resort.
Hi! My name is Yasmine and my parents own 3 Mana Kai condos that I help rent and manage for them. I live in Washington State where my husband is a Police Officer, but my parents and the business office are located in central California where I grew up. My husband Jason and I met at at college in Utah, and then we moved to Washington which is where he grew up as a farm boy. We've been married 13 years and have three small boys who love to travel as much as we do, but it's getting harder now that they are in school. We still try to get to Maui at least twice a year though, with or without the kids!
Yasmine purchased this condo in 2008
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 in 2008, 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 and height of the building, sunny weather, and the family friendly beach makes it a unique spot on Maui. Not to mention the turtle population has exploded in this area. Also, the Mana Kai has become a fabulous resort with wonderful upgrades and amenities.
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!'
We stayed in two properties (4th floor and 8th floor) from Yasmine. Both properties were clean, beautiful views of the ocean, palm trees, and the beach. Air conditioning made the rooms very comfortable, and kitchen provided ease for home-cooked meals to be served in the condos or on the patio decks; this made our stay extra relaxing and enjoyable. Snorkeling and the beach is literally only a few steps away. We loved both 4th and 8th floor properties and will definitely be staying again! Owners were quick to reply, and reservations and payments were easy. Owners were very accommodating and provided a child's bed (pack and play) upon request. I would recommend either of the properties to individuals or small/large families (we had 9 adults and 1 infant on this trip) traveling to Maui. We love the beach access, kid-friendly pool and beach areas, lounge chair area, cleanliness of the Condo rooms and the Mana Kai lobby and ground areas, snorkeling right out front of the condos, great onsite restaurant 5 Palms (amazing happy hour specials), on-site mini-mart made for convenient food and beverage purchases, close drive to in-town shops restaurants, Luaus or other beaches and lava fields. The best sunsets on Maui are from the Mana Kai!
Beautiful location, excellent apartment and saw turtles on the reef right in front!
The property is just as it is described. Yasmine excellent to work with. We would like to return.
My husband, son and I arrived for three nights at the end of March late in the day to this unit after a long drive from Hana. The unit was dark and smelly. The sheets were not fresh and clean smelling, so I had to go down the hall to wash them in the unairconditioned laundry room. The people next door had no A/C and left their door open. It was loud and we could smell their food. Their was dust and dirt in the corners and under the bed.
Thank goodness we had chartered a private boat for the following two days. The worst part of this unit was that I woke up in the middle of the night covered with bed bugs on the last night before I had to fly 9 hours back to NYC.. The owners response was insulting and she only gave me the nominal cleaning fee back. Disgusting and horrific experience!
This was a fantastic place to stay during our time in Kihei. The property is right on the beach with its own direct access - both grassy area with lounge chairs and sandy beach. There is a restaurant, bar, and liquor/sundries shop directly below the residences, which is super convenient. The condo itself was very clean and modern, and stocked with virtually every amenity we could possibly need (we made a ton of use of the cooler to take drinks down to the beach!). There were four of us, and we were very comfortable - each bedroom has its own adjoining bathroom, so we had full privacy if we wanted it. I would definitely stay here again!
We travelled with our two teenagers (girl 16; boy 14) and we all enjoyed this unit and complex. We have travelled several times to Maui, and I think we have found our favorite vacation rental! Unit was very clean, nicely appointed kitchen and on the days we were there got really humid, so was it was great to have the unit fully air conditioned for the early afternoon when we returned from our outings. Beach in front is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding or just relaxing and also nice to have the pool as an option. There is also an activities rental on the property my son and husband had a great time learning to paddleboard right off the beach in front of us. We love this complex because it was small and only one tower - so fabulous, unobstructed views to wake up to and easy to walk around and not get "lost". Nice walking/jogging down on the beach to other resorts and close to many restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. We stayed for 5 wonderful nights and it was very convenient to have full-size washer/dryers to use before we headed off to another island for the balance of our vacation...but next time we may just stay here for the whole trip!!
