Need a vacation? Is Hawaii calling you?

Our 2-bedroom Mana Kai condo is fully equipped with everything you need and is great for families. It has a full kitchen and an open living room with sliding glass doors that lead to a spacious lanai overlooking the beach.

Mana Kai Maui is an eight-story resort situated right on a beautiful white-sand cove of the Keawakapu Beach, one of the best and also most kids-friendly beaches on Maui. Our condo is on the 7th floor with unobstructed views of the ocean and outer islands.

One of the best snorkeling reefs is just steps away, and you are within minutes from upscale shopping and restaurants in Wailea or more affordable, surfer-spirited Kihei. Golf courses and tennis courts are nearby.

We love this place and hope you’ll like it too!

About Igor

Family Paradise: We really enjoy spending time with our four kids, and there's no better place for that than Mana Kai: clean, safe, kids-friendly Keawakapu Beach, warm waters and gentle (most of the time :) waves of the Pacific, exciting explorations of the coral reef (right in your front yard!), and a cozy condo with breathtaking views of the ocean, islands, and the beach (and your very own sand castle!)

Igor purchased this condo in 2004

Why Igor chose Kihei

Why Mana Kai: In 1998, we stayed for the first time at the Mana Kai Maui with out 6-months old son. It was love at the first sight: we've been back every year! After 6-7 visits, we decided to buy the condo. It is our happy place - everyone in the family loves it there! It's so beautiful, peaceful, and convenient too. The Mana Kai is right on the beach - we fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the songs of birds; we watch whales from the lanai and go snorkeling without driving anywhere; we love to stroll along the seemingly endless, most beautiful and uncrowded beaches of the South Shore. We hope your experience will be just as wonderful!

What makes this condo unique

Essence of Aloha: Over the years, Mana Kai produced thousands of happy and loyal visitors - just search for 'Mana Kai' to read their stories! But no words can describe the beauty and aloha of this truly unique place - you have to experience it by yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I spent 7 nights at the Mana Kai #708. What was good:

• location, location, location

• view...spectacular! Whale watching from our lanai!

• separate bedroom suite

• clean, internet access, free phone in NA.

• great pool, lawn area for guest only...and the security does check if you stay there!

• air condition in bedroom

Thank you Igor and Claudia for letting us into your home.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

THank you. We enjoyed the condo very much. I loved being able to hear the surf during the night and wake up and have my coffee on the lanai. We had a beautiful view and the pool and beach were great. The restaurant below was also very good. Thank you. I would stay here again. Eve

Very nice unit with a breathtaking view on the 7th floor. Had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Mana Kai several times over the past few years, so know the building well. This particular unit was a great price compared to many of the others. We had read that the bathrooms were dated, and that is true, but they were clean and very usable. The kitchen was nicely updated and had everything we needed. We stayed with another couple, and the actual divider between the bedroom area and living room was great. I would highly recommend having that as the space is way more private. We were very impressed with the rapid responses the few times we contacted Igor prior to getting there. When we got there to get our parking pass, the lady at the desk said we couldn’t check in early. I texted the number given to us prior to check in , and the property manager said absolutely go right in, the place was ready for us. They were very nice. We texted once just to let them know the ironing board broke, and they promptly texted back. My husband and I stayed in the back bedroom, and it was very quiet, even with the windows open. We had worried it might be noisy early with people walking there, but it was quiet!! Folks, this is one of the best kept secrets on Maui!! The location is unbeatable. The lawn is right on the water, so you have a nice place to lay all day, or you can go down to the sand and sit right on the water. There were beach chairs for our use in the unit, as well as beach towels. There are ample lawn chairs on the lawn. The pool is salt water and very nice. A short walk down the beach is a beautiful boardwalk to all the pretty resorts. We walked there every morning. It was so nice to have the little store, as well as the restaurant for happy hour and dinner. Parking was carefree, free, and there were extra spots for our second car. The best thing was the view out of our unit. It was breathtaking. You will not find a better spot for the price. This unit was great. We will definitely go back.

Location, location, location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the condo, the facility, the views (especially sunset!) and the awesome beach (the only thing we missed was a toaster - maybe we just didn't find it).

We hadn't realized that the oceanside of the condo wasn't air conditioned, but it turned out not to be an issue, what with the nice breezes coming through, and all of the ceiling fans. This might be an issue for someone who visits in the summer, I guess?

Overall, I can definitely recommend this condo -- if we return to Maui, we'll rebook for sure!

Feeling Cheated

  • 2 of 5

The location is very nice,but the condo was disappointing.

The furniture and interior is very dated.The screen and closet doors are so rusted they do not slide well at all.The weatherstripping on the front door is so bad that when the wind blows,and it does most afternoons,it sounds like a freight train coming through the hall.The kitchen utinsils are so cheap I had to buy my own to BBQ.I guess most people who stay here do not cook or prepare some of their meals.The TV and cable equipment are so jam packed on the tiny stand that it looks like something from my freshman year in college.The bathroom cabinets are rotting at the base , it just looks bad.There was a patio chair missing a screw and could not be used,what does it take to fix that? The kitchen doesn't even have any drawers so you have to put all kitchen wares in the pantry cupboard which means limited room for food.I have rented many condos all over Hawaii for over 30 years and this was one of the worst.We made the best of it because afterall we were on Maui and didn't dwell on our condo.I guess if you only stay for a week or less and go out for every meal you will be fine here.But for the money I spent to stay here for 3+ weeks I guess I expected a little more and a little more attention to detail.

Owner's Response: "what does it take to fix that?" One call to the property manager. 3 weeks to make one. Utensils are not to your taste? I reimburse my guests for anything they need in the condo. Kitchen is all wrong? The condo and the kitchen are exactly as on the high resolution pictures on the website. Chronic indigestion? Cannot help you with that. What a waste of a vacation..
