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 purchased this condo in 2007

Why Art and Sophie Nickel chose Maui

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.

Breathtakingly beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Art and Sophie's condo at Maui Kai for 1 week. The view of the ocean was gorgeous as we entered the condo. Can't get any closer to the ocean than this! We saw lots of whales every day as we sat on the lanai. We brought our binoculars but Art and Sophie already had a pair ready for us to use. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the bed was...slept each night listening to the calming ocean waves. The condo was clean and met our needs. One of the reasons we rented here was for the cancellation policy. You only pay for 2 days and the remaining amount is due at check in. For most people, life happens and sometimes one has to change plans. The way Art and Sophie handle this is truly a plus. Art was easy to work with and eager to help in anyway. Mahalo for a wonderful week.

Lovely Condo, fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Maui Kai, from the moment I walked in the door for the first time I was blown away by the view and the vision of the breaching whales. We spent a lot of time watching the whales while eating our breakfast or supper on the lanai. 2 sets of provided binoculars helped with this as well. We were so centrally located it was great. We did lots of walking up and down the beach. There is a wonderful little grocery store within walking distance, which I will just go to next time and not even bother with Costco. The pool and BBQ area was perfect as well. There are a lot of regulars at Maui Kai and they are very willing to help you with any questions you might have about the area. The bed was very comfortable, all the dishes you could think of were there to us, towels were fresh every day. Art and Sophie were provided lots of information about the area and the condo before we arrived and were there if we needed them during our stay. I did purchase beach mats while I was there and left them for other guests as I don't like to put the towel directly on the sand. I highly recommend this particular condo for your stay in Maui, although a little expensive it was well worth it!!

Spectacular lanai views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Even though this condo was a little out of our budget, I booked it anyway because of the lanai views. They did not disappoint! We had a lot of fun whale watching each day. We saw tons of whales, and even watched what we were pretty sure was a competition pod breaching and flipping their tails over and over again for about 20 minutes. Since we came during the very beginning of whale season, I can't imagine what the whale activity might be like during the peak. The lanai alone is worth booking this condo.

The rest of the condo was very comfortable. It had everything we needed, and I was especially grateful for the beach gear that was provided. The location is great and is within walking distance to a grocery store and plenty of great restaurants.

I was a little jealous of the pool at the big resort next to this condo, but there were always so many people there that I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it. Maui Kai has a nice but smallish pool area which we used a few times, and almost always had it to ourselves. The pool temperature was perfect and the jacuzzi was great. We didn't use them but there were several BBQs and a full kitchen in the cabana.

The booking process was easy and the owners gave us plenty of information before our stay. The Maui Kai staff were very friendly, and it was nice that they had change and detergent for sale (only $1). I hope to stay here again the next time we're on Maui.

Amazingly Perfect Condo for Maui Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Maui Kai was absolutely wonderful!! The condo is at the perfect location - it is just north of Kaanapali with just a short walk to get on the boardwalk. There are many restaurants, grocery stores and shopping nearby. The condo was extremely clean and very roomy, with a comfortable bed and top notch kitchen with full refrigerator, plenty of dishes/utensils and a dishwasher. You are literally on top of the ocean when standing out on the balcony of this condo, and you have the most amazing views, especially for sunset. Art and Sophie were so accommodating, responsive and wonderful to work with. They send you an entire travel guide they've put together on the best restaurants, where to go, etc. There are even travel Maui guidebooks in the room. We are definitely coming back to Maui and there is no other place we will stay but here!

Great Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

Maui Kai was a great condo for our stay in Maui. Its location is right on the ocean and you can hear the waves crashing right from the balcony. Its within walking distance to everything on Kaanapali Beach and you can also walk to grocery store and some restaurants. Everything that you need is in the condo to make your stay perfect. The bed is comfortable and there is lots of space to move around. If the beach isn't for you then the pool area is also very nice. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maui.

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maui Kai 806 in September was wonderful! We were able to book directly with Art and Sophie Nickel, which was very convenient and simple. Art was helpful, responsive, and friendly when speaking to him over the phone and through email. Checking in was very easy and the staff was welcoming and accommodating when we arrived early. The room wasn’t ready yet, but they happily allowed us access to the pool area so we could change and head out for a walk on the beach. They gave us a kind courtesy call when the room was ready.

The location was perfect for us because it provided easy and quick access to beautiful beaches nearby to either walk or snorkel. We loved snorkeling over at Black Rock in the morning and also did a little snorkeling on the beach just north of the Maui Kai. The safe in the closet was helpful, too, because we could leave some of our valuables while we were snorkeling without worry. The building itself was very well kept, clean and quiet.

One of our favorite features was the private lanai looking out over the water that allowed us to view sea turtles and the beautiful sunsets. The building was close to several restaurants and shopping if we chose, but we purchased much of our food from Costco and found that the kitchen had the supplies we needed to prepare our meals. The lanai table and chairs were comfortable and a perfect place to relax.

Our Maui experience was heavenly and we hope to do it again soon! We would not hesitate to book with Art and Sophie again, as their condo was lovely and very beautifully maintained.
