We stayed in Unit 306 owned by The Claytons, and loved their unit. It has a beautiful wall of windows overlooking the ocean. The view is west so the sunsets are terrific. The unit is pristine and we loved the extras: beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkels and fins. The location is ideal. There are many small local food spots nearby and... More

First, we fell in love with Maui instantly. Next, we were hoping the room would meet our desires - something NOT trendy, loud, stuffed full of people. We hit the jackpot. The room and location of Maui Kai made this of the most relaxing, pleasant, stress free vacations ever. For me personally, I seek out the beach so I can... More

Donna Bender, who owns Unit 807, helped us book our honeymoon stay at Maui Kai. We had originally planned to go to another location but had to cancel last minute for weather reasons. Donna was wonderful with helping us plan our trip just a few weeks before our stay. The condos were great - every unit is waterfront, lots of... More

Allison, I'm glad I was able to help you book a last-minute honeymoon at Maui Kai! I'm happy you appreciated that Maui Kai units are totally private - your neighbors can't see you and people on the beach can't see you. Maui Kai is a concrete block building so all you hear is the sound of the ocean waves. Please... More

My wife and I stayed at Maui Kai in October 2014. We chose this facility because it was not a giant resort hotel, but was well situated and equipped for our stay. We booked a 1-bedroom unit through Donna Bender who owns studio Unit 807. The unit was roomy and well equipped with everything we needed to be self sufficient.... More

Aloha Ken! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and that Maui Kai met your expectations as a small, quiet property instead of a busy, crowded mega-resort. Let me know when you're ready to return and I'll be happy to help you again. Mahalo nui loa, Donna Bender More

I have been to this resort 3 times(12/2011, 1/2014, & 1/2015) and have loved it every time. We've been to Maui 3 times with 22 people and every time have stayed at the Maui Kai. They are more than accommodating with such a large group. Every time we've been back it feels like home. Condos are very well maintained and... More

We had an apartment on the 8th floor. What an amazing view! This condo is literally right on the beach. We had the sounds of the ocean to lull us to sleep every night. Nice sized apartments with plenty of storage, well stocked kitchen and adequate bathroom. Snorkel gear was provided in the apartment. Coffee provided every morning on the... More

What an amazing place. We rented a condo with beach view, room 802, right on the beach, fell asleep to the crashing waves, sipped coffee on our balcony/lanai each morning admiring the view before we set off for the day. Back home to enjoy sunset and a drink on the balcony watching the surfers come in at the end of... More

This was our second stay at the Maui Kai. What can I say, you just cannot beat this amazing place. It is truly ocean front, every single condo is ocean front and the waves pretty much crash against the building. I fell asleep to the waves every single night. We booked unit 1007 with the help of Donna Bender. This... More

It was my pleasure helping you with your return stay at Maui Kai. I'm glad you enjoyed the enclosed lanai in your unit. Many people enjoy an enclosed lanai not only because you can completely open its sliding windows and screens and essentially be outdoors but also because you get extra space inside the unit. When you're ready to return... More
