About Christopher Larsen

The owners Chris and Donna Larsen live in Seattle and have travelled extensively over the years but have finally found Nirvana. We will be in the process of upgrading our 2BR /2BA condo that we purchased in late 2012 as we prepare to make it our permanent home. We are excited to share our new home with you and can assure you that when you arrive you will find a clean and comfortable home away from home...

in Paradise! We will make every effort to make your stay as memorable and carefree as possible because we truly want you to return and make this your private little hideaway for years to come. We welcome all input or suggestions to help us improve your stay.

Christopher Larsen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Christopher Larsen chose Maui

Our unit looks over the beautifully landscaped pool area and out to the ocean. Sit on your Lanai and watch the magnificent sunsets or just relax with your Mai Tai and enjoy the spectacle of breaching Humpback whales during their mating season. We love this area of Maui and we love the wonderful aloha spirit at Luana Kai!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this condo because of the way it is situated on the 3rd floor, affording a better view of the surroundings along with being protected from the trade winds but allowing the tropical breeze to make A.C. a non-factor. If you are into windsurfing, you need go no further than your back door. There are also tennis courts on the property steps away. With the pullout sofa bed in the living area which can sleep 2, the condo can accommodate 6.

Ocean View 2 Bedroom Condo with Lanai

Escaped the snow and arrived in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 glorious weeks at this condo in Kihei. This was our first time on Maui and I had no clue really where we were staying. I just booked and prayed it would all work out. We were pleasantly surprised by the great location and fabulous condo. Our family of 4, 2 adult and 2 kids ages 5 & 8, enjoyed everything about this condo. Dealing with Chris was flawless when I was booking the condo. Leslie did a fantastic job at making sure we had everything we needed too. The condo was stocked fantastically. We got great use out of the boogie boards, cooler, chairs, umbrellas, etc. The condo itself was exactly what we needed - pool, hot tub, beach, ocean view and grill were perfect. We look forward to returning to this wonderful condo in the future. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us Canadians!

Beautiful, Amazing, Incredible Views!!

  • 5 of 5

We left Chris and Donna's 'piece of paradise' one week ago today. We are fortunate enough to have picked the perfect place for our 11 week escape from winter. The view from the lanai is probably one of the best in the area - not only overlooks the pool/spa area, but the views of the ocean, the whale watching and the breathtaking sunsets are truly incredible! I have a million pics of sunsets, because each one was more beautiful than the last. This condo was perfect for our visiting family members too, plenty of room, lots to do, close to many attractions or things to tour. Beautiful beaches all over, but the one in front of us was so convenient to tote our beach chairs and boogie boards out and set up for the day. Many days were spent enjoying the sights and sounds and the warmth of the Maui sun. Our grandkids so enjoyed their time on the beaches and at the pool. Many a meal was cooked on the grills and served poolside to allow for a minimum time out of the water for the kids....and us adults as well. The staff here are awesome: so very friendly, helpful, courteous, humorous and such hard workers. This place is kept spotless - from washing of entryways, stairways, pool areas to the beautiful grounds and flowers, and the daily cleaning and upkeep that make this place so beautiful and comfortable! They all are amazing! Kudos and mahalo to all the staff! We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, as well as the next time we visit Maui we will be checking availability here at Chris and Donna's. By the way, they are very, very attentive owners! If you have any questions or if there is an issue with anything at all, they respond quickly to remedy any situation that arises. They really want you to enjoy your stay and want you to be comfortable in their condo. They are wonderful owners who love their piece of paradise and want you to love it too, which we sure did! Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo to you both!

Owner's Response: Gail and Wes, Wow!! Thank you so much for your kind words. This was not originally intended to be our official response as it were to the beautiful words you put to pen....I have been waiting to respond to you both with news of our first grandchild. Still waiting but the midwife says this weekend! We are, happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciate our little spot as much as we do. If there is anything at all that we could have done to make your stay any more comfortable , please don't hesitate to let us know. I must say you have been our "Dream" guests and just hope that one day we can welcome you back again! I promise to let you know when our grandchild arrives and of course we will be sending along some pics. Thank you for sending us a photo of your family . It is always such a joy to meet the family! Aloha and with much Mahalo, Chris and Donna

Such a relaxing vacation with beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Chris's condo! They have everything you could possibly need and then some! The kitchen has everything, there is a small apartment type washer and dryer which was really handy! The pool and hot tub were always very clean and so refreshing. There are bathrooms located in the pool area so you don't have to run back to the condo. There is a fridge, stove, microwave, bbq's all right there you can use to cook lunch/dinner. You can see the sunset from the lanai or can walk just a short ways out to enjoy it on the beach. The beach there is perfect for people with small children as it is very shallow for quite a ways. That being said, there is the Humpback Whale Research Center a short walk which is good for snorkeling and this condo is so close to so many beautiful beaches just minutes away. Shops, restaurants and activities are all right near by so you really have everything conveniently close! Chris was wonderful and offered to help with any information we wanted about the area etc. and replied very quickly to our inquires.

We just got home this morning and are sad to have had to leave...we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it! Missing that beautiful ocean/pool view already...Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us! We had an amazing time!

I absolutely loved our stay in your condo!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved our stay in your condo. It was clean, well-stocked, relaxing, spacious - the perfect place to return to after a day's outing. One of the best parts of this condo was a beautiful view of the pool and ocean. The pool, hot tub and property were clean and provided a nice alternative to the ocean if you want a break from the beaches. We were conveniently located just minutes from beaches, shopping and restaurants, boasting nice ocean views, the property had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The best beach for us was by the whale research center, there were very few people here and lots of sea turtles in the tide pool just down the beach. I totally love it here! I have already recommended it to family and friends. Thank you Chris and Donna!

Relaxing, Affordable Condo...Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were on Maui to celebrate our engagement, and this condo was our home for two weeks. The condo is great and affordable, and it has just about everything you'll need- 2 full bathrooms with bath and shower, a kitchen with plates, bowls, cups, pots & pans and many utensils. This condo made us feel right at home with its two flatscreen TVs, Internet access, and comfortable living areas. We also loved how relaxing it was to sit out on the Lanai and enjoy the view along with the nice warm Maui breeze. But perhaps best of all, the location of this unit is perfect. It's very close to several beaches, grocery stores, shopping centers and restaurants. And with a car, you're never too far from more great beaches and some incredible Maui adventures. We would definitely stay here again!

Serene, Comfortable Condo in a Lovely Setting

Serene, Comfortable Condo in a Lovely Setting

An exceptionally beautiful place to spend a vacation! The property is situated in a gorgeous area and is very beautiful and well-maintained inside as well as the pool and grill area. Our condo was spacious, comfortable, afforded sufficient privacy and offered Internet access. The entire feeling is wonderfully intimate and relaxed.

The people in the office were very welcoming when we arrived, and made it clear that they would have been available if we'd needed them, but we never did.

We spent the first week without a car and could manage very well. The closest shopping places are a 12 minute-walk away, and 2 minutes from the nearest bus stop. Almost the whole island can be accessed by public bus. For 4 dollars you have a day pass for all the busses on the Island. A single fare is 2 dollars.

From the condo you have an awesome view to the ocean. To start the day with breakfast on the balcony is one of the highlights. The condo is, as shown on the pictures, it is well maintained and has all you need for a comfortable stay. We spent our second honeymoon last April and we sure will return some day.

The Maui Ocean Center, located next to Ma’alaea Harbor, is a 3-acre state-of-the-art marine facility. A very cool aquarium, worth seeing! Next to it is Buzz's Wharf with it’s most spectacular views on Maui. A family run restaurant, specialize in the own unique brand of American, Hawaiian and Tahitian foods. Sunset views are a part of every dinner seating and you can see the Humpback whales play during the winter time.

An other beautiful place is Lahaina. It was the major whaling port and fishing town, thanks to the calm harbor and it’s location on the whale migration routes. Lahaina served as the seat of government for over 50 years. For a break visit the Moose McGillycuddy's, it has a dynamic combination. From a variety of delicious burgers and sandwiches, healthy salads, delicious pasta, great steaks and seafood, you are sure to find something. If you're looking for nightlife, you can find it at Moose’s.

To top off our trip we went to the MACC (The Maui Arts & Cultural Center) in Kahului to see James Taylor life.

Definitely staying here next time again. You are close to the beach from black rock, so greatest place for snorkeling!
