Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

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 newly remodeled convenient, comfortable and quiet...

Thank you Malinee,

Just wanted to thank you again for the use of the condo. We had such a nice vacation there. I loved the location, especially having the beach to walk along. We our next trip comes around I would definitely like to stay again.

Beautiful condo, location, and outstanding host made this vacation a dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

I wished I had ten stars available to describe our excellent experience at Malinee's Ocean front property in Luana Kai condo. The apartment itself was clean, equipped with everything we needed & more... from beach stuff (umbrella, towels, chairs, body surf, etc., and even sunscreen!) to toiletry items to a perfectly furnished kitchen. The king bed was exceptionally comfortable and the outside patio has a breathtaking view of both the sea and the mountains of West Maui. Location is perfect, central to many shops, restaurants and beaches. The true gem of our stay was the outstanding service we received from Malinee. Unfortunately we didn't meet her in person, but we talked on the phone and with messages for a couple small inconveniences that she handled with great promptness and care. At all times she went well beyond what was due or expected. She was always available and willing to help, including buying a new beach umbrella for us after we broke one because of the wind. Communication was great and our overall experience. We travel a lot and it's uncommon to find a host who takes such a great care of his guests. This place is a rare find and I would recommend it to anyone with no hesitation!

Great Experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was roomy, well equipped and the first floor location with access to the pool and outdoors was ideal. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Perfect place for to stay while exploring Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and we could not have been happier with this condo. It is very close to all the great restaurants in Kihei and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make other meals while relaxing in between adventures. The beach access was great and the pool area (and all the BBQ's) is very close. The bed was also very comfortable.

I highly recommend this condo would definitely stay there again!

Great Condo For Our First Trip to Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui, and we packed our trip full of long, adventurous days which left us exhausted. Thankfully we could return to this restful condo every night to rejuvenate. We were able to cook-out on the large grills by the pool and eat on our outdoor patio set, and rest on the outdoor lounge chair or the indoor couch. We also took advantage of the community pool and hot tub and met others staying here. The condo is also located as close to the middle of the island as possible (and still be on the ocean), making it very easy and convenient to go in any direction. A grocery store and several delicious restaurants were only a few blocks down the road, which was also a plus, and the condo's owner is very friendly. We would gladly stay here again, and are really grateful that we were able to stay in this unit. The only complaints we had (which were extremely minor) were that the sounds of those moving around in the condo above us often filtered down to us, and while the condo does have beach access, it didn't stack up to the bigger beaches on the island, and so we still always went to those to go to the beach (which, if you are wanting to fully experience everything Maui has to offer, you are likely going to do this anyway, so it wasn't a big deal). If you are going to Maui for the first time, we highly recommend this unit.

Roomy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The unit is fully equipped with a stove, microwave and fridge, plus a washer and dryer. It is convenient to many attractions on Maui, both south of Kihei and north to West Maui, and only 20 minutes from the Kahului Airport. The pool is across from the unit, which is on the first level, and there is a pleasant lanai that faces the pool and the ocean. One caveat (and this came as a surprise to us): There is an abundance of fans but no a/c. It was hot during our stay, although the trades did cool things down during the night.

Excellent Resort, comfortable and cool!!

  • 5 of 5

Nice convenient unit from both the back parking lot and from the front access to the pool and BBQ grills. Nice cool condo during the day. Having the tile through the unit (except the back bedroom) was very easy to keep clean. The management supplied a second chair for seating availability as there was only a couch for seating.We enjoyed our first time visit on the ground floor and will be returning for 3 months. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the green flash sunset! Thank you for having us!
