About Jean LaPorta

John and I have been coming to Maui for over 25 years and now we visit with our family every year.

Jean LaPorta purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jean LaPorta chose Maui

When we first started to visit with our family we enjoyed staying at Luana Kai so much, we decided to purchase a condo so we could visit more often and share our home with our guests. Luana Kai is at the quiet end of Kihei with amazing sunsets, beautiful walks along the beach and a wonderful complex for families. Kihei is centrally located in Maui making it easy to see all of the island.

What makes this condo unique

As a family one of our favorite things to do is go out and watch the sunset every night from the beach park in front of the complex. The sunsets are just amazing!! As owner's of one of the condo's at Luana Kai we take great pride in taking care of our condo. We are always upgrading the unit so our guests have the best experience. We include free Wifi in the unit. We have a full size washer and dryer in the unit and many extra amenities. We want our guests to feel like home so they will have a vacation to remember!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I enjoyed our stay there. My family has a hard time adjusting to anywhere that isn't home, but this time was different they didn't wanna leave...It is truly home away from home. The condo was well presented and it is exactly what you see online. The location is perfect just minutes away from the main road and shopping center. The neighbors and staff were friendly and you really get your moneys worth. After this experience we officially made it our place to stay whenever we are heading to Maui. Thank you so much for such great hospitality and looking forward to staying there again. Mahalo Nui Loa!

FANTASTIC STAY!!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently stayed at Jean's condo and it was just perfect. From the moment we walked in the condo was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We were very impressed with all the upgrades. The condo was very well cleaned without a speck of dust anywhere. The kitchen was just amazing with a welcome basket upon our arrival with lots of goodies. I have never seen such a well stocked kitchen in a vacation rental. She has not missed a thing, including a kitchen aid mixer and a full size food processor. We cooked so many wonderful meals with all the items Jean had supplied in the kitchen. We enjoyed eating our meals on the lanai while relaxing and looking at the view of the ocean and grounds. Every afternoon when we got back to the condo after our adventures, we would open up all the windows and get a wonderful tropical breeze in the condo. It was very comfortable and relaxing feeling the breeze go through the condo. The beds were very comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. The grounds are very nice at the complex and the landscapers maintain the property everyday, and it looks wonderful. The pool and hot tub were nice and a great place to hang out and relax. The barbecues and outdoor kitchen were great to cook our meals. I would highly recommend this condo and look no further if you want a great place to stay on the island. We cannot wait to go back and stay at Jean's condo again when we return to Maui. If I could give the condo more than 5 stars I would definitely give it a 10!! Jean is a wonderful host and answers all your questions immediately. Thank you again Jean for sharing your beautiful condo for our vacation!!

Beautiful updated unit with excellent shared amenities

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Jean's place we were extremely impressed by everything! From the amazing view of the ocean and beautiful inner courtyard and pool from the lanai to the nicely decorated interior to the well-stocked kitchen and pantry, it did not disappoint! We loved the availability of beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and boogie boards. They lived in our rental vehicle for 10 days so we could stop at the beach at any time well prepared! Also the coolers and ice packs came in very handy for the full day drive to Hana as well as for mornings on the beach. It was so nice to have all the necessities in the kitchen such as dish soap and spices so you don't have to go out and buy a ton of stuff. Luana Kai itself is very well maintained with a great swimming pool and barbecue area as well as a nice putting green where my young son enjoyed playing. We had an amazing time on our trip and a good part of that was due to our excellent accommodations. Jean was always quick to respond to any questions I had and was very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend her condo to anyone looking for a nice relaxing stay on Maui!

Great Condo at Luana Kai

  • 5 of 5

We rent condos almost every year, several in Maui, others across the US. This is the best equipped condo we have rented. This condo is nicely updated with great colors, beautiful tile, granite counter tops and newer appliances. Paper products, kitchen spices, and any kitchen utensil you can think of. Also, beach equipment including umbrellas, buckets and shovels for kids and coolers all make packing and arriving easier. Jean is great to work. We had a fun trip and look forward to returning to Maui in the future.

Pristine Condo with Pretty Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

The condo is the best stocked condo we have ever stayed in. There were ample glasses, plates and serving ware. In addition, pots, pans, toaster, mixer, food processor, spices, coffee, snacks made the condo a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The condo has been updated with a beautiful kitchen and elegant bathrooms (showers only.) The condo holds four people. It is small but has a comfortable patio and beautiful grounds with a pool and tennis courts.

We were only there for four days so we did mostly outdoor activities. We sat by the pool and swam, walked on the lovely and peaceful beach, took a snorkeling trip with Maui Snorkeling (highly recommended) and a sunset cruise. We only had causal meals with the exception of a happy hour at Five Palms Beach Grill. The Grill is very popular so get there early. At 50% off food during happy hour, it is a bargain.

We had trouble with the coffee pot and called Jean. She was very helpful and concerned and offered suggestions on how to resolve the issue and resolve it we did. Jean acts like you are a guest in her home and she is a wonderful hostess.

We would highly recommend Jean's condo for two to four adults or a couple with one or two children.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for staying with us. We are happy you really enjoyed your stay. We want all our guests to have a vacation they will always remember. We hope you can stay with us again in the future, and just to let you know the condo can sleep up to 6 people. Aloha Jean

Maui paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back from this beautiful condo in Kihei. This was our second time staying here and it was even better the second time. As always the condo is completely stocked. We knew this but still stopped at the store on the way only to find, of course, most everything we bought was already in the condo. The goody basket provided snacks each day for the beach. Jean really knows how to take care of her guests. The condo was spotlessly clean. We could tell they have done even done a few more things to the condo since last year. We watched the most beautiful rainbow form over the ocean while having breakfast and coffee one day. Last year we didn't want to leave. This year we came back talking about moving there. I really think it's Jeans's condo that makes us feel so comfortable in Maui. We can't wait for next years trip. Thanks again Jean.
