Worth Waiting For!

Posted Dec 3, 2017
Beautiful location, beautiful people! This is a wonderful spot overlooking the ocean. We loved everything about it! The front desk staff were extraordinary and we were only there for two short days. The room was very well appointed and had lots of little touches that made our stay even more comfortable. We have been walking by for ten years and are super glad we finally worked the Maui Kai into our travel plans.

If you get any closer to the water, you're IN it!

Posted Nov 19, 2017
I'm coming back for sure. Small intimate property, quiet, but very near all the good stuff. Single digit minutes to Lahaina, Kaanapili, and literally touching the water. Beach is 4 feet from the side of the condo seawall.

On the beach, great views, and full kitchen!

Posted Oct 27, 2017
Pros: Oceanfront, nice rooms, huge balcony, walking distance to market, and near Lahaina
Cons: Nothing
Location: There is a market and small strip mall nearby, Lahaina is just down the road 10 minutes.
Absolutely loved this place!! The rooms are wonderful with full kitchens, a nice bath, a huge balcony with table & chairs plus a chaise to relax while listening to the ocean waves. We had an amazing view and the hotel is right on the beach. Plus, there is a market within walking distance. A lovely place to stay, will happily return.

Staff friendliness

Staff was awesome but the bed would need a update and new mattress.

Nice surprise

Posted Oct 8, 2017
Maui Kai is not a resort but a smaller condo hotel. All of the condos are oceanfront, right on the water. Each is individually owned. Our unit 207 was very clean and very quite. It was well stocked with just about every thing a person would need. The complex is well maintained, and the pool area was open and in the end stages of an update. The beach is right next to the complex with access, unless you are older like we are and have physical disabilities. Management followed up the next day to see of we needed anything. The only thing I could think of was firmer pillows. Surprisingly they were delivered next morning. I would not hesitate to recommend the Maui Kai to friends and family, and would stay there again as it is centrally located to a market and restaurants. Great stay!

Nice view. A little dated

Posted Sep 24, 2017
It was a great place to stay if you want somewhere quiet with a home feel. The view was amazing. Only downside is that it's a little outdated. However, this didn't interfere with our time there. We had all we needed and really loved our stay.

Aloha; Thank you for taking the time to review the Maui Kai. We are an older property and have been here for many years. The last 6 months we have been updating and renovating many areas of the exterior of the building. We do try to make it feel like your home away from home with all the little extras and your right you just can not beat our oceanfront location and view. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Maui. Mahalo
