About Chris Li

I live on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii. I enjoy doing water sports and love watching the beautiful sunset on the beach.

Chris Li purchased this condo in 2012

Why Chris Li chose Maui

This condo is very quiet and offers you your own private piece of paradise, and is as close to the ocean as you can get. It has the most beautiful unobstructed panoramic ocean views and fronts the famous kaanapali beach with amazing views of the blue Pacific ocean and you can see the islands of Lanai and Molokai from the balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the Lanai enjoying coffee, drinks or meals while enjoying amazing panoramic views of the ocean. Amazingly serene condo with the sound of the ocean creating a calming atmosphere. Relax and let the stress just leave your body.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back home to cold and snowy Central Oregon a day ago and have already booked our return trip for 2018----and we never do that! This little retreat just drew us in and became the perfect island home for my husband and I. Tucked like a little hidden treasure among newer, taller, fancier, super-expensive resorts (which is not our thing) this little gem was the perfect home for our 10 nights in Maui. We nearly lived on the super comfortable lanai directly overlooking the waving ocean, with Molikai as a green jewel out on the horizon (quite often sporting a colorful rainbow---not kidding)

We enjoyed cooking in the thoughtfully set-up kitchen, slept well in the king size bed, and felt like we were living here---not vacationing here. Just what the doctor ordered! There is a great market just 10 minutes away too, so supplying-up was a cinch. We quit counting whale sightings after 50+, but never-the-less enjoyed every one like it was the first. Many mornings we watched the big sea turtles swimming like children in the surf right out front while sipping our wonderful local coffee. The pool was perfect size, remarkably well kept, and always had enough chairs to lounge. We also made good use of the outside pool-side grills for BBQ'ing dinners and enjoyed having them provided.

The owner Chris was very attentive and provides this home with extras to make your stay "just right" like boogie boards, 2 folding beach chairs and towels, an umbrella and a cooler. We didn't miss one day at the delightful little beach right out front, and also made good use of the boardwalk for evening strolls. All in all we came home rested and relaxed and ready to return. This truly was a special home-away -from-home!Thank You for sharing it---

For fantastic Maui vacation consider staying in this condo:

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely great condo, comfortable, tastefully decorated and a view literally smack above the rocky/sandy beachfront. This condo provided us much relaxation and a home base to utilize when we weren't doing outside activities. When the sun is too hot or you're just all tuckered out from play it provides a tranquil and peaceful place to rest, fix dinner, dine with outstanding views, watch fantastic sunsets, listen to the waves and sleep on an extremely comfortable bed. After a 2 week stay I could easily imagine staying another week. It is situation in a smaller building so it has a more intimate feel unlike the large, noisy, busy big hotels which can be found nearby. It's positioned high so you don't hear much but the ocean and occasional live music from nearby hotels. Its close to some nice shopping if that's what you like, and a grocery store to stock up on necessities. We highly recommend staying here for a wonderful vacation filled with peace and tranquility!

Felt Like Home, LOVED It!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 4 rites after a wedding, we loved it so much we hated to leave.

The Maui Kai is an older building, but once you enter Chris' unit on the 9th floor the view is breathtaking and that's all you see. It was like being on a huge private balcony on a cruise ship, with an amazing view at all hours.

We enjoyed it so much, we went to the Times Market and enjoyed many meals on the lanai. The market is great for prepared meals and delicious sushi, so you don't have to cook, if you don't want to. Chris has everything you can think of in the unit, so no need to worry about anything.

The living room kitchen and dining area are all great, where the view is seen from kitchen has beautiful granite counters and has been recently remodeled.

We enjoyed keeping the lanai totally open (it wasn't too hot for us to have to use the AC) we could have an unobstructed view, and hear the waves day and night. While we stayed it was very quiet and peaceful.

The sunsets are incredible, as well! We finally saw a turtle our last day, and beautiful rainbows, our goodbye from Maui.

Chis is a pleasure to deal with, prompt replies, easy instructions, and refund of our $250.00 deposit.

We felt so at home.....Hope to return for a longer stay next time!

Great condo with a magical view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 nights at Chris Li's Maui condo. The place was super clean and the view was amazing. We saw whales and were treated to a rainbow several days in a row. The location was perfect. We enjoyed being tucked away from the crowds a bit. We also enjoyed that there were beach towels, beach chairs, and a small cooler for our use. I can't wait to come back.

Beyond expectations...a wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

Chris Li's condo was clean, homey and inviting. I really appreciated the lighting in the condo and furniture choices on the lanai. We came on a surf trip and were lucky enough to score some mini barrels right in front with the luxury of a hot tub after session. A short walk through a quiet and relaxing neighborhood led to a large grocery store, urgent care center and several restaurant/bars. Chris was also great about returning messages and giving information before our stay. The location is also a great launch place for exploring the beautiful bays and surf spots north of Kaanapali. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend for a romantic getaway and wish I had stayed longer!
