We really enjoyed our stay in a junior suite on the 3rd floor at Maui Kai. We booked it through Donna Bender, owner of Unit 807. The ocean views and sunrise/sunsets were stunning! Every morning we enjoyed breakfast/coffee on the lanai. Most evenings we utilized the community BBQ area next to the pool to grill steaks or seafood and then... More

Aloha Nicole! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay at Maui Kai. I'm glad you took advantage of your oceanfront lanai to eat your meals - Maui Kai lanais have a better view than any you would get at a restaurant! Yes, snorkeling is spectacular in front of Maui Kai - many say it's one of the best snorkeling spots... More

My husband and I just got back from a very enjoyable stay at the Maui Kai. The staff does an excellent job in meeting the needs of its guests. They are only too happy to help book tours, etc. They are also great at recommending great restaurants and other attractions in all price ranges on the island. We stayed in... More

We stayed in 805 (1 bdr), and booked through Gary via vrbo. All units in Maui Kai have direct oceanfront view, we even saw mother/baby sea turtle swimming directly below us. We absolutely adored our unit, speedy wifi, open lanai excellent for having breakfast or watching the beautiful sunset. We snorkeled in the ocean directly facing Maui Kai, however you... More

My husband and I loved our stay at the Maui Kai condo we booked through Donna Bender. Her unit was not available, so our unit was assigned on check-in by the front desk. Donna made sure the front desk knew about our request for an open lanai on a higher floor, and we were absolutely delighted with our lovely condo.... More

Aloha Mona! I'm so glad you loved your stay at Maui Kai. It was my pleasure arranging it for you and requesting an upper-floor unit with an outdoor lanai. The rental office is very good about honoring requests. I'm happy you enjoyed your lanai's view of gorgeous sunsets, the islands of Lanai and Molokai and turtles in the ocean in... More

We reserve through Maui Kai 806 owners Art & Sophie Nickel. They always make sure we have a wonderful holiday home. Would not think of staying anywhere else. May not be flashy like the resorts but perfect for most people. Would not think of staying anywhere else. Can't vouch for all rooms but each of the rooms Art and Sophie... More

We had a great time booking through Maui Kai 806 owners Art and Sophie Nickel. Art and Sophie were genuinely interested in our stay and were extremely helpful arranging and setting up the room. All units face the ocean and being that Maui Kai is only several feet away from the water's edge you feel immersed in the whales, sea... More

We recently enjoyed our sixth stay in eleven years at the Maui Kai and yet again, were not disappointed. The views, the full kitchen, the value, and the service just can't be matched in West Maui and in all fairness, we haven't reviewed Maui Kai before because all the other reviews on TA have already been so positive. This time,... More

We stayed in Unit 807 that we booked through its owner Donna Bender. The unit was spacious and had a beautiful oceanfront view; it was exactly as pictured in the promotional photos. The staff were very friendly. We especially liked how centrally-located the Maui Kai is to shopping and dining, as well as various beaches. Donna gave us her Local... More

We just visited the Maui Kai at the end of August 2014. We stayed in the ocean view JR room. We had a fantastic view of the ocean and an island on both sides. The room was great, very comfortable bed. Nice, clean and a great value for the money. Very quiet and peaceful at the Maui Kai, great location.... More
