What makes this condo unique

This property is totally unique, steps from the ocean it will never be duplicated. Few vacation rentals have such a spectacular setting and easy access to the ocean--leave the stress of everyday life behind and enter your own tropical paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This unit was as advertised and was great! Nice beach location. Snorkelled right off beach and saw many turtles. Owner was easy to deal with and fast to respond. No issues with unit at all. Would fully recommend. Stayed in two areas in maui during our stay. This one was the best.

Enjoy Maui at your own pace....

  • 5 of 5

We loved Mana Kai. Mark was extremely helpful and easy to work with. He did all he could to make our stay amazing! The unit is well set up and the condo was ideal for our needs (3 generations, 3 adults and a 3 year old). It is on a lovely stretch of beach. Perfect set up for eating in (BBQ facilities terrific) or dining out. Really enjoyed the surf shack with kayak rentals. Zacks had it all, made relaxing easy as only had to drive for larger items at the grocery store. We stayed for two weeks, which was ideal. Other condo guests very friendly, lots of family, no competition for beach chairs.

Although there is alot to explore in Maui, we enjoyed our VRBO so much that we many spent our time having relaxed beautiful beach days at Mana Kai.

Will be back!

Excellent Property for Staying in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 10 days at Mana Kai at the beginning of Sept 2017 as part of our honeymoon. The property was as advertised and the view and proximity to the beach cannot be beat! Both units A and B within #714 were very nicely decorated and did have air conditioning (wall mounted HVAC units are not shown in the pictures) which was a nice break from the daily heat and humidity.

We enjoyed the lanai very much; we ate breakfast there each morning and watched the Mana Kai staff maintaining the grounds and cleaning the community BBQ grills and the salt water pool. The distance to the beach cannot be beat…down the elevator, through the open air lobby, and you are on the beach. Enjoying the pool became a daily routine and was always the perfect temperature. The beach chairs and umbrellas for use by guests of the unit were a very nice amenity.

Local restaurants we liked included Fork and Salad and Da Kitchen. Make the reservation when you get your plane tickets and plan to go to Mama’s Fish House. The food, drinks, service, and views are spectacular. We did go to the on-property restaurant (5Palms) for happy hour on our last evening in Maui. It was a popular place and the food and drink was good and reasonably priced.

Mark (the owner) was responsive to requests prior to our visit and he confirmed that we made it into the unit okay on our day of arrival. We had a very nice first trip to Hawaii and this unit will be on our short list when we return to Maui.

Fantastic Stay at Mana Kai #714

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely pleased with our stay ! First trip to Hawaii and there was no better way to enjoy Maui than staying here! Pool, sand, and sea all out just outside your door. Snorkeling and swimming with sea turtles off the beach - awesome. The apartment was well furnished and very comfortable for a family of 4. Kihei was a nice spot with good restaurants nearby (and the cook/eat-in option was handy too). Mark was very responsive and easy to communicate with. We recommend this wonderful place and hope to visit again in the future.

Wonderful condo right in the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from staying in this wonderful condo. The condo was clean and very well appointed. The view of The Pacific ocean was amazing! We loved everything about it! There is a lovely beachside restaurant and a little market on the property, which was so handy. There is also a place right there to rent snorkel gear, paddle boards, etc. The condo has a grassy area where you can put your lounge chair that is just a few feet from the beach. This was handy on one day when it was quite windy. Btw, The condo provides lounge chairs, and there are plenty for everyone. We loved the location - an easy drive to Lahaina, Kaanapali beach, and Kapalua. It is also a five minute drive to the shops at Wielea. We couldn't recommend this condo more!
