My Fiance and I stayed in unit 707 at the Maui Kai in Mid October and it was incredible. The view was unbeatable for the price. We could look down from our Lanai and see the reef through the crystal clear water beneath us. The sunsets are AMAZNG and we saw a Giant Sea Turtle and a Stingray right from our condo!

The condo itself was very clean and the daily maid service was as good as any daily maid service I have experienced at a full service hotel. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need and the Maui Kai front desk staff are very helpful.

We booked through Donna Bender and she was really great about providing us with all the information we needed for our trip to Maui.

I would definitely recommend staying at the Maui Kai, and unit 707 is great for couples that are looking for a romantic getaway.

I was happy to help you and your fiancé book a stay at Maui Kai and that you had an incredible time! I was glad to provide you with all the information you needed for your trip. I agree that Maui Kai housekeeping staff is as good as you can find at any full-service hotel. Please let me know when you're ready to return to another fully-equipped condo at Maui Kai and enjoy once again the amazing views of the islands of Lanai and Molokai, beautiful sunsets and watch the turtles from your lanai. Mahalo nui loa, Donna Bender

We stayed in unit 307, which we booked through the owners of unit 806, Art and Sophie Nickel.

The condo was exceptional and the views that come with the place are unmatched. After having stayed at the Maui Kai and having explored the island in it's entirety, there's really no other portion of the island that is better to stay in than Kaanapali. The location and condo were perfect and exactly what we were hoping for on our vacation. We will definitely be back. I really liked how quiet the building was and it's location really can't be beat. It was perfectly decorated, great lanai, well equipped for cooking. It really had it all. Free parking and wifi are essential and really make a difference when choosing a place to stay. We really liked the condo and the bed was incredibly comfortable.

I wouldn't change anything about the Maui Kai because you guys are winning best place on Maui contest and it isn't even close. The Maui Kai is absolutely unmatched. Watching the sun set in between Lanai and Molokai was amazing.

Room Tip: Stay above the third floor as you can hear people walking and talking which may be disruptive.

Aloha Ryan and Liz,

Thanks for all the compliments! I'm glad you enjoyed all the ocean front benefits the Maui Kai has to offer and that Sophie and I were able to help get you into one of our great partner units even though 806 was not available for your dates.

Let Sophie or I know when you are ready for a return visit and we'll get you booked and organized for your next stay!

Mahalo,

We have visited here a number of times over the years. Our experience this time was even better than other trips. The staff, as usual, was attentive and helpful. The room was recently renovated and we were the first ones staying in it. The renovated kitchen and bathroom had everything you could possibly want or need. The rest of the rooms were in excellent condition and felt like being at home. We spent a lot of time sitting on our balcony looking out from our ocean front view from our corner unit. There were little touches like snorkel gear, beach chairs, cooler, etc. that we have come to enjoy staying here. We are already planning our return next year.
