Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath End Unit Closest to Water Great Views from Both Bedrms

Location! Location! Location! The Mana Kai Resort is located right on one of the nicest beaches on Maui. It is 'Right There' on the beach with an unobstructed ocean view!!! Just fade off to sleep to the sounds of the surf. The ocean water is warm and clear, and the snorkeling is great.

Our condo is Mana Kai 601 which is a 'Superior' unit. In addition, all of the Mana Kai units have great ocean views from one bedroom, but the only Mana Kai units with unobstructed ocean views from both bedrooms are the units closest to the ocean and ending on “01”. Our condo has great ocean views from both bedrooms. In addition, in the "01" units, the walkway to the front door does not go past the bedroom window, so there is additional privacy in these units. Once again, location is key, and Mana Kai 601 has the location!

Mana Kai 601 is also one of a handful of Mana Kai units with Central Air Conditioning as opposed to AC in the back bedroom only.

The condo has been very nicely renovated and we are constantly upgrading the unit so it stays in great condition.

The resort also features a beautiful oceanfront swimming pool in a tropical garden setting, and is home to 'The Five Palms' Restaurant as well as 'Zack's Deli and General Store'. There is also a BBQ area available on the grounds for guest use. On the ground floor, there is a beach rental shop in case you would like to rent bikes, paddle boards, snorkeling gear, etc... To top it all off, the world-class golf courses of Wailea and Makena are minutes away.

Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium is ideal for your Maui vacation. It has a full kitchen for the times that you want to stay in and have an ocean view dinner on the large lanai. Beach and Bath Towels are provided. In addition, the condo has FREE HIGH SPEED WIFI INTERNET ACCESS as well as FREE LOCAL AND LONG DISTANCE CALLS TO THE US AND CANADA. You will also have a free reserved parking spot.

The Mana Kai is located at the extreme south end of Kihei, a few hundred yards down the beach from the Wailea border.

About The Owner

My name is Erik Simon and this is my family's condo. I handle the bookings for the condo, along with our family friend, Rick Lindgren. My dad, Dick Simon and my brother, Jeff Simon, live in Maui and are real estate brokers. I live in San Diego, and Rick lives in Palos Verdes Estates, California. We all know Maui very well and will take great care of you.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Kihei

We chose this location because our family is in the real estate business on Maui and through this experience we found the the Mana Kai is hands down in the best location on the island. The view from the Mana Kai can not be beaten and the beach that it is located (Keawakapu Beach) on has the softest sand on Maui.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to the large lanai which is great for ocean front dining, the Mana Kai is home to the Five Palms restaurant. There is also a general store with a deli on the ground floor, as well as a beach rental shop with bikes, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, etc...

Guestbook comments from the owner

So wonderful!!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012



We stayed in condo 601 and it was the most wonderful 10 days of our lives. The condo was comfortable and clean, the view was amazing. We loved how convenient it was- the pool was right outside the door which was a 20 second walk from the beach...which was a perfect beach for snorkeling and swimming. I could go on and on about the location. Dreamy!!



The on-site restaurant is very good and the convenience store was reasonable and well-stocked. We saw about 50 whales from our balcony and watched the sunset every night. It could not have been more perfect.



The owner of our unit was so generous and courteous! He called and checked in a couple of times, asking us if we were happy and comfortable, and encouraged us to make ourselves at home. The kitchen had every utensil and gadget one would ever need and plenty of dish ware. They even had cups with tops for our young son.



I hesitate to even write this because I want that condo for myself should we decide to go again in the next few months, but I feel the need to clue you all in. This is the place to stay IMO. Doesn't get better or more relaxing!

We Had a Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Mana Kai 601 was close to perfect. The condo itself was well maintained and the kitchen had what we needed to cook many meals. We also used the BBQ area on the grass which was nice. The weather was great while we were there and we loved the views from the lanai. We can't wait to come back.

For those who truly enjoy the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week enjoying the water and beach. The location was perfect for us to snorkel and swim. Nearby restaurants did take out for us when we didn't feel like cooking.

Having the renovation work going on was a bit inconvenient but it was well managed and so didn't really distract us from a great family vacation. Thank you!

Awesome views and location! Very friendly owners and management at the Mana Kai!

  • 5 of 5

The views and sound of the ocean were amazing! The condo is really one of the best at the Mana Kai. We could watch the sunset in the evening from the front door! Everyone we were in contact with was very accomodating and friendly. The beds were very comfortable. We would stay there again!

What a view!!

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Maui many times over the years and have never seen a view like this! We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked into the condo. The ocean was right there! What we noticed about this condo right away was that it has great ocean views from both bedrooms.

The booking process was easy. Erik took good care of us from start to finish.

-Because this VRBO listing can be booked with VRBO's book it now feature, we reserve the right to decline a booking if it leaves us with a number of vacant nights between bookings that we cannot realistically fill with another guest's trip. The book it now feature allows a guest to make a tentative booking before we have been able to review the dates. For example, if there are 10 vacant nights between guests and you are booking all 10, or maybe 9 and sometimes 8, the booking works well for us. On the other hand, if there are 10 available nights and you are booking a number of nights that leaves us with too many vacant nights in that period, we may have to decline the booking, especially during high season. The Mana Kai books almost solid year round, so we try to maximize our occupancy. Thank you.

CANCELLATION POLICY: A $200 cancellation fee applies to all cancellations. Other than that, reservations may be cancelled up to 60 days prior to your intended occupancy date with no additional penalty. For cancellations made within 60 days of your intended occupancy date, your entire payment will be forfeited unless we are able to re-rent the condo. If we are able to re-rent the condo to another guest during your date range, as a refund you will receive the amount that we collect for the new rental. No refunds for no-shows.
