Our stay at Maui Kai was short but very enjoyable. I gave it a 4 because of a pesky air conditioning sound (like a door slamming shut) but because the weather was very pleasant, we turned off the air conditioner and used the ceiling fan. The condo itself was very clean and cozy. Definitely enough room for two people. It has pretty much everything you could want or need. The bed was very comfortable. The outstanding feature of the condo is the view. The lanai is oceanfront with a gorgeous view of southern Maui and one of the other islands (lanai or Molokai, I always confuse the two). ...

We went to Maui in February 2019, for my 50th and for the fact that we wanted to see the whales. This condo is directly on the water with a wonderful view and quaint lanai.

There are coin operated washer/dryers on each floor that you will need to share with the other patrons of the condo complex.

We recently returned from Maui where we spent 9 nites at the wonderful Maui Kai. We have been hanging "our lei" at the Maui Kai Unit 504 for several years. Why go anywhere else? Unit 504 is super comfy and owners Lyn and al Magorno have generously provided everything you will need for a relaxing and fun vacation. However, the biggest plus about unit 504 is the oceanfront view!!! Honestly, it is panoramic, you will think you are on a cruise ship! The Pacific Ocean sits just below the lanai. In addition to the great view the unit is quiet and you can walk to restaurants and a grocery stor...

What a great Condo.. This condo was well stocked ranging from boogie boards, noodles, snorkeling gear, ice chest, and seasoning in the kitchen. My family of 4 had plenty of room. The high bar stools on the Lanai were great to sit and watch the whales from. This was our first time in Maui and it was a great place to stay and we will be back!!!

Nice condo. Fantastic views. Certainly fully equipped from the kitchen to recreational equipment. Friendly staff, very welcoming. We were hoping to sleep to the sound of lapping waves but it's more of a pounding surf so we had to close the lanai doors at night. Convenient location, easy access. Grocery store right across the street and a funky breakfast place. Gas grills out by the pool for easy grilling. Hawaiian music Cd's were a nice touch, set the mood.

This was our 2nd stay at the Maui Kai condo. We loved it just as much this time as the 1st time we stayed. The condo has everything you need (kitchen, A/C, snorkel gear, plenty of room, extra towels, etc.) But the most important feature is the lanai. The view from the lanai is truly amazing. You're so close to the water and the views are unobstructed. The owners are very nice and are quick to answer questions about the condo, things to do in Maui, etc. And all my questions were answered within minutes. We look forward to staying at the condo again in the near future. Thanks Lyn!

Condo 504 at the Maui Kai, was a home away from home. Everything you could possibly want to stay and play at the beach was included in this rental. The beds were comfortable and the condo is beautifully decorated. The best part was the lanai overlooking the ocean that provides great views and a relaxing place to unwind at the end of the day. Great for families, my children had a great time running down to the beach to play in the surf.
