As others have mentioned, our search started with the lovely Art and Sophie Nickel. Their unit wasn't available and Art helped us find several other options in the building, we ended up with 706. (And also accommodated an extremely last-minute change in our plans, for which I am very grateful. I can't recommend them more highly.) It was great. First... More

Our room was super nice and the building is right on the ocean and well kept. Definitely a very good value you can literally spend twice as much and not be in near as nice a place and a long way from the water in a newer building that's as big as a small city "resort" there are several nearby...

We had such a fantastic holiday at Maui Kai 106 that we didn't want to leave! The condo is is a great location with beautiful sea views. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every morning and watching the sun set and listening to the waves every evening. The condo was well equipped and the owners had included a lot of... More

This condo has a very good location and is reasonable priced. Kaanapali beach is right in front, which is a gray place for snorkeling and stand up paddling. Best balcony view. I enjoyed sleeping listening to the waves. I am definitely coming back next time I'm in Maui (hopefully during next whale season).

Really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend.. First time visiting in April, we usually visit in June, however we decided to come in April for Whale watching. You could see whales from the Lani. Very close to Lahania, which we love

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Maui Kai and got to see whales from your lanai. Maui Kai lanais are the best seats on Maui for whale watching! I was happy to help arrange your stay and look forward to helping you again when you return. Mahalo nui loa, Donna Bender More

It all started with an email with Art and Sophie (The owners of 806). They didn't have the room that we inquired about and recommended me the other one, which was absolutely beautiful as well.They were really helpful and informative about the questions we had and was prompt in replying the emails. The receptionist made it much more easier for... More

We stayed in a 1-bedroom corner unit that we booked through Maui Kai 807 owner Donna Bender. Donna was AMAZING. She gave us the most awesome 'handbook' of places to go, eat and see. She was spot on in all her advice! Gorgeous view and whale watching was spectacular. Condo is so close to the water you can't even believe... More

I'm so happy you enjoyed your 1-bedroom corner unit with its gorgeous views not only straight out at the ocean but also down the coastline. The whale watching is spectacular no matter what type of unit you get at Maui Kai. I'm glad you appreciated my 80-page Local Girl's Guide to Maui to my favorite places to eat and things... More

We loved how clean, modern, updated and beautifully decorated it was. The view was amazing! I think I actually gasped in surprise when I walked in. We watched the whales jump from our clear view of the ocean. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. And we'll definitely be returning!!

I'm glad you loved your stay at Maui Kai and enjoyed watching whales from your room. When guests first walk in the door, they're awestruck by the incredible view just like you were.

Art and Sophie (owners of 806) worked with us to make our stay memorable and provided us with everything we needed for our stay; great location to everything in Kaanapali; the boardwalk is steps away to walk the full length of the beach. We will return to the Maui Kai

We went in December, our first time to Hawaii. We'd been all over the world, from Vietnam to Nepal to Japan to Hong Kong, so a civilized vacation and one with our baby was daunting.
