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

We spent our honeymoon in Maui Kai 807 which we booked through its owner Donna Bender. The booking process was very simple and check-in just as simple. The condo was just as described with a gorgeous ocean view right on the beach. We had everything you could ever need in the condo and the grocery store was a short walk... More

Our stay at Maui Kai was great. The suite was more than adequate if a little dated style-wise. The views are amazing and the crashing waves actually kept us awake at night (not that we are complaining). Donna Bender was super helpful in getting things organized.

Our stay at Maui Kai was, to put it simply, heavenly. We stayed in a junior suite that we booked through Donna Bender (Maui Kai 807). The staff was very welcoming, our room was clean and comfortable. We could not have been closer to the ocean! Waking up our first morning to the sounds of the waves crashing on shore... More

Maui Kai is still wonderful if you appreciate what it is and what it is not. If you want a ritzy resort with all the amenities (and the fees to match) or a modern exterior, go elsewhere. However if you want the best view and closest to the Ocean anywhere, stay here. Maui Kai was built in the 60's so... More

Had a wonderful two weeks from the 15th to the 29th October 2014 at the Maui Kai. Our room # 702, was perfect. Great ocean view and everything you can think of in the suite. The staff were friendly and helpful looking after all our needs and requests. The groundskeeper even put out fresh bananas and avocados for us to... More
