About Art and Sophie Nickel

We first went to Maui on our honeymoon almost 30 years ago and have been going back ever since. In 2007, we finally had the opportunity to purchase a vacation property of our own!

Art and Sophie Nickel

Maui Kai 806

Art and Sophie Nickel purchased this condo in 2007

Why Art and Sophie Nickel chose Lahaina

Great location on the north part of Kaanapali Beach and true ocean front. There's nothing like going to sleep and hearing the waves crash onto the beach.

What makes this condo unique

One of the few condos in Maui that is really beach front and ocean front. A lot of people claim this but not many can deliver like Maui Kai 806. Top it off with a perfect 8th floor ocean view and Lanai and Molokai across the water.. priceless.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Condo was a good size for a couple, kitchen was helpful. Entire unit was very clean and well stocked with cool,er beach chairs, beach towels, etc. You could not be closer to the beach/ocean, slept well hearing the waves each night. Complex is within walking distance to some shopping, resorts, and nice restaurants. Very clean beach, not overly crowded, multiple sea turtle sightings. My husband and I would absolutely stay here again.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely condo last fall. We had a wonderful time, and hope to stay here again the next time we visit Maui. The view from the lanai was breath taking. We arrived at the very beginning of whale season but still managed to see quite a few whales (even saw what we were pretty sure was a competing pod of males vying for the attention of a female). I could have stayed out there for hours just watching them. And since it's west facing, the sunsets were pretty spectacular.

The condo itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed (binoculars too for whale watching). The pool area was nicely decorated and had a very relaxing vibe. There weren't a ton of people so we usually had it to ourselves the few times we used it.

Overall a great condo, perfect location, easy check in and check out, and a fair price. I hope we can stay here again!

This is the place

  • 5 of 5

For our fifth trip to Hawaii, we booked our stay at the Maui Kai in room 806 for September 5-13 2016 with owners Art and Sophie Nickel (NOTE: vrbo wouldn't allow us to select those dates....). The process was easy with no issues. Art and Sophie were very patient with all of the questions we asked them, and Maui Kai 806 did not disappoint...!

The Maui Kai is about 10 minutes north from Lahaina, off of Honoapiilani Highway. Times Supermarket and several restaurants are in a shopping center on the same exit as the Maui Kai, which we found to be extremely convenient. Duke's Restaurant is also a short walk on the beachfront boardwalk from the Maui Kai, which we took advantage of while there. We were very pleased that there were no resort fees or parking fees sprung on us, unlike all of the resorts we have stayed previous times. The grounds include a patio with stairs to the beach, a pool and hot tub. We were unable to use the stairs to the beach while there.... hurricanes Madeline and Lester had barely cleared the islands the day before we arrived, and the ocean swell they caused had not dissipated. This wasn't a big deal, as there was another less-impacted beach 5 minutes away.

We felt right at home with our room. Maui Kai 806 is very comfortable and nicely appointed. It has a fully stocked kitchen, a nice bathroom with roomy glassed-in shower, comfortable queen bed, and Tommy Bahama decor. We liked the look-and-feel so much that we converted our master bedroom to the same decor after our visit. The VIEW from the lanai was amazing, with the surf crashing right against the seawall, and the islands of Lanai and Molokai bracketing the horizon. We had rainbows on the horizon between those two islands all but one morning, and amazing sunsets every evening.

If you're looking for a relaxing location with spectacular views...this is the place!

A vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay through owners Art and Sophie Nickel. The process was easy with no issues. Art and Sophie also gave us information on amazing things to see and do.

Maui Kai 806 is by far our favorite place we have ever stayed and intend on returning in the future.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Maui Kai while visiting Maui. The unit is very clean and well taken care of. The owners are easy to get in contact with and are extremely friendly. The views from this condo are amazing and gave us a perfect view of the sunset. The location was also fantastic. There is a grocery store across the street and several restaurants within walking distance. Also, downtown Lahaina is only about a ten minute drive away. Overall, this condo makes a wonderful home base to explore the rest of Maui, and we plan to stay here on our next visit to the island.

This was our first trip to Maui and we stayed at Maui Kai. Art and Sophie were great to work with. Maui Kai is very conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants, shops and walking trails. The staff was always friendly and courteous and the grounds beautifully maintained. When we weren't out site-seeing, our most favorite place to be was on the balcony overlooking the ocean. We could see whales all day and every day. We took binoculars and could get some great views of the whales, boats, kite boarders, etc. The sunsets were spectacular viewing them right off our private balcony. We would highly recommend anyone considering staying at the Maui Kai to do it. Wonderful place in paradise!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed came to Hawaii with my sister. We stayed here for 10 days and she was there for 24. Even though there were 3 of us in this lovely condo, it never felt crowded. This unit is exactly as advertised. The bed is fantastically comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil you might need. If you want to take a trip to the beach, there are beach chairs, a sun umbrella, coolers, flippers and towels. The shampoo and conditioner are even exceptional!

The staff in the office are so friendly and helpful. They booked excursions for us and recommended events to attend and places to shop and eat. The condo was very clean. The pool was fantastic. The stocked kitchen at the cabana made eating by the pool easy and the BBQ was another great feature that we took advantage of.

But as those that have come before me have said, it is the view that makes this condo a little piece of heaven. Every morning we would sit on the lanai and the whales would not disappoint. We could watch them for hours and we did! And the sunsets...oh my god, the sunsets.....just breathtaking. The lanai is like an oasis. We didn't even use the table inside for eating...we ate all our meals outside.

I would recommend this condo to anyone and everyone and would come back in a heartbeat. I didn't want to leave.
