Very nice & private place. Hospitable employees and close to all activities and Lahaina. If you want more activities for dinner or music, just walk next door and enjoy their activities. complex is 50' from the beach. You can snorkle and surf right there. Ocean temp, 84 degree water is what I guess in september. Pool, clubhouse, barbecue and free...

"Amazing view and picturesque sunsets daily from our unit! Awesome snorkeling and surfing too! Very clean and "homey" feel to the condo. Great food and shopping nearby. Would definitely stay at the Maui Kai again! We booked our room through Donna Bender who is a Maui Kai owner."

Stayed at Maui Kai for our 5yr anniversary. Donna Bender, one of the owners at Maui Kai, helped book us and the process was seamless. This place has the best views-ALL condos are ocean view. Beautiful beach to the left of the hotel. The only downside is that there is no beach directly in front of the hotel...but that's ok...

This was our first time staying in a condo while on vacation and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. We booked our stay at Maui Kai through Donna Bender who owns a unit in the building. We spent 10 days in a one bedroom unit on the top floor (#1004). There was plenty of space for two...

This was our second trip to the Aloha State. We have stayed in condos all over the islands and this was one of the best yet. The best view for sure. After 14 hours of travel it was great to kick back with a cocktail and watch the sun go down overlooking Molokai and Lanai. The condo was very well...

Our first evening there, the whales made an appearance, must to our delight....as it was a bit late for them to be there...EVERY day, sea turtles swam by in the beautiful clear water, and they are my favorite animal...the snorkeling was superb, and everything we needed, like nice places for food, snorkel gear, and a car rental business, were also...

I just left Maui and the Maui Kai, unit 1003 a couple of days ago. I think this is a fantastic condo rental. This particular unit is updated and very clean. The view from the lanai is amazing, it looks exactly the same as in the photos. Some things about renting a condo and at the Maui Kai in particular....

Dear Sophie and Art, We had a lovely stay. We loved our leisurely mornings sitting on the lanai with a full ocean view. I loved getting up in the night and seeing the moonlight reflecting a wide path in the water. We saw rainbows every day often from the lanai. It was peaceful and quiet. The condo itself was great....
