We enjoyed our stay at Maui Kai. We booked with Maui Kai #806 Owners Art and Sophie Nickel and the process was seamless. Our unit #801 was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The view is outstanding. It is the perfect location to relax and we cannot wait to return.

I've stayed here twice in 4 months and have to say that it is a superb condo in terms of location. Every room faces the Ocean and the views are tremendous. If you can stay on a higher floor I'd recommend it but even from floors 2 & 3 you can't complain about the view! The team on the front... More

It is a definitely pleasant stay at Maui Kai room 807! All the rooms are ocean front with great view. We stayed at unit 807, it is a new modeled, very clean and comfy room, way much better than what the photos and videos could show. It's really relaxing staying at the balcony watching whales, people surfing, sunset and having... More

Aloha Yuanyuan! I'm glad you had a pleasant stay in my Maui Kai studio Unit 807, which I'm constantly upgrading to be as comfortable as possible for my guests. I'm happy you used the travel guidebooks, Hawaiian music and binoculars for whale-watching. Maui Kai's best feature is the view, so I'm glad you enjoyed watching whales, surfers and sunsets and...

Maui Kai was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations! The Maui Kai 806 owners Art and Sophie Nickel were wonderful and made booking the unit very easy. We stayed in the Junior Condo (Unit #106) and had absolutely everything we needed and more. The view is second to none, the Maui Kai front desk and housekeeping staff is so incredibly... More

We stayed in Unit 4. It was clean and sat right over a good surf break. Not liking hotels we found this place convenient, easy to access and the hotel staff helpful. The beach is easily walkable. The condo's pool is nothing special. If you want a resort this is not for you.

We stayed in a junior suite at Maui Kai that was booked through Donna Bender, owner of Unit 807. The position of the condo unit was perfect, with the lanai looking over the beach, you couldn't be closer. Snorkeling was excellent right off the beach and we swam with an amazing number of fish and turtles. Shops and amenities are... More

Aloha Helen! It was my pleasure helping to arrange your stay at Maui Kai. I'm glad you enjoyed your beachfront lanai and swimming and snorkeling with the turtles in front of Maui Kai. I'm also glad you took advantage of the farmers' market that's a short walk away from Maui Kai. Please let me know when you're ready to return... More

We are return guests to Maui Kai 504 and again it was another exceptional stay. We stayed from December 8th to the 16th which is often the time of year we travel to Maui. The unit was clean and well equipped in every area from the kitchen to the recreation closet. In the kitchen besides the usual dishes and cookware... More

Reading all of the positive reviews here, I was afraid my expectations were going to be too high. There's always that moment when you hold your breath and open the door for the first time, and more often than not, you're let down. Not this time. I was blown away my how nice corner unit #501 was, the unit was... More

Stayed in June of 2014 in room 2004. The condo was clean and well appointed. The grounds are well taken care of. This is not a big fancy resort but a nice relaxing place to stay and the location is great. We will be returning ASAP.
