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.

If you're looking for a fancy, swanky resort, this isn't it. But for everyone else, Maui Kai is a fantastic gem that sits right on the water (no kidding - when you look straight down from your balcony, there's the water). The decor is on the older side but everything else is great. Staying in room 907 (originally contacted Art... More

We wanted an affordable self-contained unit for a two-week stay in Maui. I came across Maui Kai condo rentals on Trip Advisor and all of the reviews looked good. I contacted Art Nickel asking to rent his own personal unit "Maui Kai 806" but it was booked for one of the days we wanted to stay. Art offered to help... More

Myself and two other if my girlfriends have the opportunity to watch our friend be married at the plantation house in lahaina. With that being said we are in a budget for the hotel/condo to stay at. With doing research and having over 25 emails out, I received nothing but denies due to our dates going (2/17-24) is the busiest... More

We wanted a place on the beach where we could cook and live in a nice apartment- this has everything- probably best suited for a couple since there is only one bedroom. I enjoyed the posturepediic king size bed, the updated kitchen/bathroom with nice appliances, nicely furnished space, and of course the most amazing view you could ask for. There... More

This building may be old but when you can see the sea life from the balcony you are in the right place. The pool area is small but clean and the parking is free and there is plenty of it. Our unit had everything we needed and I loved staying here, you can walk the beach and have lunch at... More

We spent 5 days in Maui in October 2014. I did a lot of research before booking the condo and reading many reviews. We were not disappointed. We had a corner condo on the 8th floor and the views were amazing. The property is beach front and only a few steps take you right down to the water. The staff... More

Let me preface this review by saying I spent HOURS, before my husband and my first trip to Maui, sorting through reviews and prices prior to and even after booking unit #706. I was afraid that I was going to be let down by the quality of the room but it was perfect for us. From the moment we walked... More
