About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

The Luana Kai is a beautiful resort, great location, quiet with lovely grounds full of tropical plants. Best of all it is ocean front, no roads to cross, no obstructions. Enjoy fantastic Maui sunsets, excellent whale watching, beach walks 100 yards from the condo. The property is on a large grassy park area with majestic palm trees and four tennis courts. The Luana Kai is conveniently located in sunny Kihei, close to shops, restaurants and many beaches.

If it is windsurfing or kite sailing that brings you to Hawaii, you can launch outside our condo. Winds are slightly lighter so kite sailing better than the windsurfing. World class windsurfing is only 10 - 15 minutes away. If you are not a windsurfer, definitely check out the pros at Hookipa beach minutes from the town of Paia.

Our one bedroom unit on the ground floor is convenient, comfortable and quiet...

Great location, condo is nice, needs a refresh.

  • 3 of 5

Well equipped, with the benefits of a dishwasher, microwave, and washer and dryer. Beachfront with no road to cross. In a humid climate like Hawaii, it would definitely be nice to have cotton sheets, not polyester/microfiber that feels like you’re sleeping in a plastic bag. Great for a week long vacation, I think the owner needs to spend some time there and see what updates I really needed… a potential 5 star with some minor updates.

The place was misrepresented

  • 1 of 5

Wasn’t given the right door code. The front door area is poorly lite, so you have to use the flashlight on your cell phone to be able to enter the door code. Place is loaded with kids running around screaming and yelling, disobeying all established rule. Handle on bedrooms window is broken, creating a safety issue. We simply just had to make other arrangements and leave.

Owner's Response: Aloha & thank you very much for your feedback. I understand the frustration after a long flight and then having to deal with the wrong door code. It was totally my mistake and I take a fully responsibility. However, when the guest contacted me I answered the phone within two rings and I immediately provided her the correct door code. One of our window handles was slightly broken off, but this did not prevent guest from opening/closing the windows nor did it cause an unsafe environment. Units in condo complexes on Maui rented through the VRBO website are individually owned and operated. Families with children vacation at all properties on the island. Luana Kai has House Rules and we hope that everyone respects and follow the rules. We are very proud of our affordable Luana Kai C104! Our goal is to provide our guests with a great experience so they want to stay with us again. If you have any questions about our unit please feel free to contact me. Mahalo! Malinee

The condo was furnished with all the kitchen amenities. The king bed was comfortable. The condo lanai is close to the pool & BBQ area, which was cleaned every morning. The fold out bed was not comfortable for an adult to sleep on but was fine for my 4 year old. The owner had contacted me ahead of time to let me know this was the case. The beach is close too but bring some sandals as this part of the beach is a little rocky at some spots. Overall a good stay and great price and responsive owners

Wonderful easy location for all island activities

  • 5 of 5

Moholo to the owners and Malinee for such a great first Hawaiian vacation. Condo was clean and stocked with everything we needed for the beach and to cook with - comforts of home provided. Location is great for easy access to all the island beaches, shopping and activities. Condo is ground floor with the pool right in front. Beautiful landscaping - quiet and private. We just lived it and will definitely stay here again! Malinee and staff were so easy to work with - very pleasant and professional. Overall FIVE star place!!

Cute and clean unit with great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our third stay at the Luana Kai with our kids and the location on the ground floor close to the pool was awesome! The kids could just run and play on the golf green right in front of the condo which made it so much more enjoyable than being on the third floor. The unit was clean and Malinee super helpful and responsive. My only complaint would be that I found that the kitchen was not as well equipped as other units we have rented in the past. I love to cook and I found that there was limited pots and pans. The blender broke down but Malinee quickly replaced it which we really appreciated. Overall still a great experience!!
