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


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.

Well decorated , clean and inviting !

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well decrated , clean and the views from the lanais were terrific ! Whale watching was spectacular , it was where we spent our mornings with coffee and , our evenings at dusk . Whales were everywhere , near and far with spoutings going on all the time it seemed . If you are lucky enough to see them take airs and splash down close up , it will remain in your memory forever ! Breakfast ans dinners at Dukes on the beach were our mainstay while there . All the folks at Maui Kai were as friendly and helpful as can be . The website for this condo is especially helpful for every guest and their interest while here . Great way for us to celebrate our 50th !! Mahalo !!

A Perfectly Lovely Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a better condo for my wonderful stay in Maui.

To be able to sit on the lanai and whale watch not once but twice a day was a dream come true.

Dealing with owners Art and Sophie Nickel was the easiest and least stressful experience I have had in booking a vacation in a long time. Their unit was spotless and had every convenience I could hope for. The staff at the condo was super in helping plan activities. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend dealing with Art and Sophie again and certainly hope to return sometime!

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.
