Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

NOTE: I do not advertise on Craigslist, so please don't book with anyone claiming to represent Maui Kai 807 on Craigslist.

ALSO NOTE: There are no VRBO fees when booking through me.

Maui Kai 807 is a small boutique oceanfront studio condo in West Maui on North Kaanapali Beach.

After a busy day of sightseeing, shopping, laying on the beach and swimming in the warm ocean waters, you will return to the comforts and conveniences of your Hawaiian home. You may wish to take a refreshing shower before enjoying a fresh pineapple mai-tai on the private lanai while watching a gorgeous sunset.

If you wish to continue enjoying the sunset afterglow from the lanai instead of going out to one of the many fine restaurants a short drive away, you can perhaps grill fresh mahi-mahi or ahi steaks on the gas barbecues in the swimming pool area or prepare your own meal using fresh local foods purchased from the large grocery store in the shopping center or at the local Farmers Market which are a short walk away. Our kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities for making a gourmet meal: refrigerator with filtered drinking water and ice maker, full-size stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, all of the kitchen utensils and appliances a foodie could desire and a vast array of local and Asian cuisine cookbooks.

You may never leave the lanai! The views of the brilliant blue ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai are spectacular. Nowhere in Hawaii but West Maui can you get such a view. During whale season you can use the binoculars in our condo to watch the humpback whales from your front row seats on the lanai, some as close as 100 yards offshore!

Our recently remodeled, 8th floor, oceanfront studio has been lovingly decorated to reflect the Hawaiian spirit. It includes all the amenities of a home away from home: daily maid service, central air conditioning, 32' flat-screen high-definition cable TV with HD DVR, Blu-Ray DVD, VCR, CD player, iPod docking station, FREE high-speed cable Internet connection, queen bed, easy chairs, dining table and desk for your laptop computer, all with views of the ocean and the spectacular sunsets. Whether you are looking for a brief or lengthy stay on Maui, our unit will provide you with all the comforts you desire.

The private oceanfront balcony allows you to sit and dine outside with complete and total privacy from your neighbors while enjoying the unparalleled 180-degree view of the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

In our oceanfront studio you will fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean waves. If quiet and privacy are as important to you as they are to us then you will revel in the peace and quiet that Maui Kai’s concrete block construction provides.

Maui Kai has a lovely heated pool, Jacuzzi and gas barbecues. The pool area has picnic tables and outdoor furniture for hosting meals with friends and family. Inside the pool cabana is a full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven and bathrooms. The cabana also has a lending library, ping pong table and dart board. It also has a FREE computer with a high-speed Internet connection for checking your email, surfing the web and printing your boarding passes.

Shortly before you leave for your stay in Maui Kai 807, I will email you my Local Girl's Guide to Maui. The guide started as a list I gave my friends of my favorite restaurants on Maui but over the years I've added information about my favorite local foods, where to buy them, farmers markets, beaches, snorkeling spots, hikes, excursions and of course shopping!

The guide offers my unique perspective as a local Hawaii girl who has grown up, lived in and experienced the islands her entire life. I normally charge $10 for the guide but if you book our unit I will give it to you for FREE! Even if you don't book our unit, please feel free to contact me about purchasing the guide. For more information, please visit my website.

Love the Maui Kai!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time that my husband and I have stayed at the Maui Kai. It doesn't get more oceanfront than this. The condo is comfortable and well stocked. The complex has a nice community area with pool, spa, BBQ, ping pong, library, etc. Its also centrally located within easy walking distance of a good grocery store and several restaurants.

This is the second time we booked thru Donna Bender and we highly recommend her. She'll send you her awesome Local Girl's Guide to Maui and will hook you up with a tour outfit that offers discounts on all types of activities and car rental. Awesome!

Maui Kai love

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at the Maui Kai on two separate occasions, reaching back out to the owners of this unit to help us book our return stay in their unit. They have always been quick to respond to our requests, and are gracious to share tidbits about the island and find us the best dinner and activity deals during our stay. If you're looking for a spectacular view, great staff, quiet pool and an incredible Maui experience, you can't miss with the Maui Kai and this studio unit!

I found Maui Kai on VRBO and got a quick response from the owner of this unit who was great - she helped me book another unit in the building since her unit was not available for my dates. The unit was luxurious with a ocean view which all the units have and the closest condo/resort in Maui. You walk out directly on the beach, not thru 15 min of resort traffic to get to the beach. They have a pool, gas grill, free parking, free wifi, coffee in morning, a library to get updated movies and books. Open the windows and you can hearing the waves while you sleep or watch sea turtles (daily), dolphins from your balcony (bring binoculars) . The owners also had some water equipment (snorkeling, body board) for our use that made staying there even more fun and added value.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked Maui Kai through the owner of this unit. We really enjoyed our two weeks stay! Very clean place. The condo was very well stocked with everything we needed plus a lot of extras. Also it is in a great location! We don't regret our choice...

Excellent getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Maui Kai is a great place to stay if you are in Maui. Many thanks go out to the owner of this unit who helped set me up with a jr suite room. The views were spectacular as every room has an oceanfront view - I was able to see sea turtles swimming by and the walks on the beach in the morning and at sunset were great. I would definitely go back again - if you are headed to Maui soon, reach out to this owner and she'll get you all set up. My trip was heavenly!

Wonderful first visit to Maui

  • 5 of 5

While we were interested in this specific unit, it was not available for our dates, so the owner booked us into another studio unit at Maui Kai. The property is located directly on the water, and each unit has a wonderful water view for watching sunsets, boats, whales and sea turtles at your leisure. We were provided with a studio unit per our request, it was clean and well organized. While the furniture and kitchen were a bit dated, that was the least of our concerns with such a beautiful, quiet environment surrounding us. We felt we had everything we needed, and enjoyed it's central location on the island. The rental process was efficient and easy, as was our arrival and departure as handled directly by Maui Kai. We grilled outdoors by the pool and enjoyed snorkeling right off the beach in front of the unit, as well as walking down the beach to Duke's for happy hour some evenings! We would certainly rent from Maui Kai again.
