About The Risinger & Hurte Families, Paul & Shirley, Pam & Brad

We have West Coast roots, currently in Seattle, but we love our island home.

(And state law requires this: HI TAX ID W20187854-01 • TAT ID TA-077-962-6496-01 • GET ID GE-077-962-6496-01)

The Risinger & Hurte Families, Paul & Shirley, Pam & Brad purchased this condo in 1998

Why The Risinger & Hurte Families, Paul & Shirley, Pam & Brad chose Maui

We love Maui Kai. It's an oceanfront gem. It's a second home for us, so it's furnished with everything we'd want in a home away from home. We're SCUBA divers (the owner photo was taken off Airport Beach about a half mile south), and love being so close to the water. We love it, and know you will too.

What makes this condo unique

206 is a spacious studio, and we've done everything we can to open it up so it doesn't feel cramped like a hotel suite. Spectacular views of Lanai and Molokai across the channel. We love watching the whales during their annual visits. The West Maui trade winds keep Maui Kai comfortable year round. And we love our little corner of Kaanapali, close enough to Lahaina and the big Kaanapali and Kapalua resorts for shopping and entertainment, but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the manager

FLIPKEY VERIFIED: 5 Star: "EVEN BETTER THAN ADVERTISED" : " We recently enjoyed a 10-day stay at the Maui Kai Beach Resort unit 206. When we arrived, the unit was in sparkling condition, including all promised amenities in excellent working condition and then some. A gift basket containing local fruit and other goodies was an especially pleasant surprise. As promised, the location of the condo was ideal for beach and especially whale watching; we saw many whales every day from the comfort of our room. We even saw large sea turtles in the ocean right below our window a couple of times. The wall bed was comfortable, and it was nice to be able to put the bed away during the day, allowing us more space for other activities during the day. The kitchen was nicely equipped with everything we needed. The owners also provided a well-organized notebook with recommendations for activities, restaurants, etc. The condo location is truly ocean front; from our room, we were often closer than many people sitting on the beach next door. There is also a nice, paved "beachwalk" that starts one property south of the Maui Kai and goes all the way to the South end of Kaanapali beach. This made it easy to walk to other parts of the beach for snorkeling and swimming and avoided parking headaches. The pool at the condo complex is small, but the spa is large and relaxing. The condo complex is nicely situated within easy walking distance of several grocery stores, a farmer's market, interesting shops and restaurants. This was our firsts visit to Maui, and we would not hesitate to stay at Maui Kai unit 206 again."

Maui Kai 206 - Spacious Oceanfront Studio, Unrestricted 180° View!
average rating of 4.875 based on 18 reviews

Beautiful view with the magic of waking up each morning to the sound of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for our honeymoon and absolutely loved our stay. The best part I have to say was the great ocean front view and being able to keep our window open while closing the screen allowing us to hear the ocean at all times. Nice location with super market in walking distance along with coffee shop and nice breakfast restaurant. Good information left in the room for restaurants/tourism and were pleasantly surprised to find netflix available in the room.

Great place to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! Literally on the ocean and close to stores and restaurants. They had a welcome basket sitting on the counter for us when we got there, so thoughtful. This place had everything you would need, fully stocked for sure. The bed could have been a little better but other than that, I would highly recommend this place.

Great Value for the Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic little condo in between Kaanapali and Napili! Very affordable considering the other hotel prices in the area. My (now) husband and I stayed there when we travelled to Maui to get married. It's nestled back off the main road but still within walking distance to shops/dining/grocery, 5 mins from Kaanapali and 15 from Lahaina. The view from the room is absolutely stunning and you literally cannot get any closer to the ocean!! The room itself has a beautiful setup with everything you need including a dining table, desk, fold out couch and Murphy bed. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and utensils for cooking, the bathroom has big, soft towels and they have plenty of bedding and blankets for a longer trip. Facilities include a pool, hot tub, cabana w/ kitchen, as well as a BBQ area. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we visit Maui.

Best Condo in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great condo that overlooks the ocean. Condo is within 12 feet of water. The condo layout is great with lots of storage space. It has a pull down bed that is very comfortable and the sofa pulls out to make a bed. We have been to Maui many times over the years and finally landed on the Maui Kai as the place we like to stay because of the closeness of the water and every condo has an ocean veiw. Of all the condos we have stayed at the Maui Kai this was the nicest. They have thought of everything for you to have from nicechest, beach chairs, etc.... I would highly recommend this unit.

Moonlight at the Maui Kai

  • 5 of 5

I arrived at the Maui Kai after a 15 hour trip, the moon was full. Gorgeous! Unit 206 was a delightful surprise, a beautiful gift basket was awaiting me with yummy snacks, coffee, and key ring mini flashlights. A very thoughtful present from the owners. The unit was very clean, updated and comfortable (I want the upholstered rocking/reading chair). The kitchen is a delight for those who love to cook. The market is an easy 3 block walk, you'll meet friends & neighbors on the way. There is a shuttle to Lahaina at the hotel near the Maui Kai, an easy walk, $2, and no worries about parking. The owners thoughtfully provided a notebook with local information such as restaurants, coffee stops, shuttles, beaches, etc. Check it out as well as the book "Maui Revisited" on the bookshelf. I've stayed at the Maui Kai twice before, loved this unit! A washing machine & dryer are located on level 2, $1.25 each. Laundry soap is sold at the check in desk. The Murphy Bed was very COMFY, I was concerned as I have BAD back problems. There were a pair of binoculars in the unit (desk drawer). The whales were amazing to watch! I highly recommend Unit 206. Many thanks to the owners for providing a wonderful and welcoming "home away from home" during my visit. I did not want to leave.

Terrific place

  • 5 of 5

The location is terrific - about as close as you can get to the ocean. The view of the ocean and the sound of the waves was probably the highlight for us. Also, the description of the listing and the amenities is accurate so I won't repeat that here. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend the apartment.

Maui Kai
Car: recommended

Maui Kai is just minutes north of Lahaina, with great shopping, restaurants, art, history, and entertainment. When you're tired of the beach, stroll down Front Street, pop into some art galleries (particularly on Friday Night Art Night – enjoy a drink while you're browsing), watch the sunset, do some shopping, and maybe enjoy a great Lappert's Ice Cream. Take the submarine tour of the reefs. Sign up for a whale watching tour from Lahaina Harbor. We love Trilogy and Pacific Whale Foundation for snorkeling trips to Molokini, Lanai, and places around West Maui. Once you've seen a sunset from Maui Kai 206, you'll want to see the sunrise from Haleakala - you have to get up VERY early, but it's a spectacular view. There are operators who guide mountain bike tours down Haleakala. We enjoy the Maui Tropical Plantation (on the road to Wailuku) and the Maui Aquarium. There's lots of great golf around Maui, but lately we've enjoyed Kahili - great views, great golf. If you want a different Maui experience, Kula Lodge in Maui upcountry (halfway up Haleakala in Kula) has good food and spectacular views of the islands. One of our favorite breakfast places is the Gazebo in Napili, only open for breakfast and lunch. Park at the Napili Shores and walk to the center courtyard, down by the pool. You have to get up early for this one – they open at 7:30, but people usually start lining up at 7; there aren't a lot of tables, so arriving later may entail a long wait. They put free coffee out for the early birds – you may want to do this earlier in your vacation while your body clock is still on mainland time. Their banana-macadamia nut pancakes and eggs Benedict are terrific. We recommend splitting an order of each – a common request that they readily accommodate. It overlooks Napili Bay, which is one of the prettiest spots in West Maui.
