We rented Unit 302 through Art and Sophie Nickels (owners of unit 806), as their unit was not available on our dates. Art was very nice to deal with, and he assured me we would get a comparable room for the same price. The unit we were put in did not disappoint! It looked almost brand new, like we were...

The condo was reserved through condo owners, Art and Sophie Nickel. Art is very nice to do business with. The room was exactly as Art described it. An older condo with many remodeled units. Our unit, 903, was very nicely redone. My wife and I truly enjoyed ourselves everyday. The staff at the Maui Kai was attentive and friendly. We...

My husband, son and I spent 10 days at the Maui Kai this past July 2011. We booked Maui Kai through an owner there, Donna Bender. I love the Maui Kai because it doesn't feel like a big, impersonal resort, more like friends and family. Every unit looks out on the ocean, so we're always guaranteed a great view. I...

Good Place if you want to be really near the ocean. I checked in 2 days before. I have to stay 3 more days. I am in unit 904. Its a nice condo, though on day one internet was not working and on second day micro wave stopped functioning. Condos are 40 years old. Remember it is not a hotel...

My husband and I enjoyed 6 nights at the the Maui Kai #106 this past October 2011. We booked through VRBO for a great deal. The owners Mike and Allison were very pleasant to work with and have a wonderful condo. The property is right on the water which gave us a wonderful view of the ocean and sunset from...

We recently stayed at the Maui Kai in unit 807 and it was absolutely fantastic! It was our second time to stay at the Maui Kai but the first time in this particular unit. We booked our unit through Donna Bender, who owns Maui Kai 807. She was very helpful and provided us with a lot of great information on...

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...
