“Stay there everytime I'm in Maui”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2009

My wife and I have stayed here 7 times. It is right on the beach and some units have water views. A/C in all the bedrooms and some units have in family room too. I'd recommend a 2nd floor unit. The complex is an older one; some units are remodeled, some are not, ask when making a reservation. We like to do lots of activities on various parts of the island. Kihei Kai's central location is ideal for this. Rates are very reasonable and having a kitchen makes eating in, easy and economical - there are also 2 gas grills by the beach. Everyone has always been very friendly and many that stay there have been doing so for years.
It's right on the beach and I have had ants in the kitchen on some stays. It wasn't a huge problem and was always promptly taken care of by the managers (husband and wife that live in one of the units). If you want a decent condo, with a kitchen, right on the beach, centrally located, I recommend it. We've stayed there 7 times and will continue to go back.
The beach is good for kids - small waves and a shallow grade. There is a pool, but it's quite small - of course the ocean is right there, and it's plenty big :).
Wi-fi from neighboring places is sometimes usable. On our last visit (Dec '08), all units had wired internet - I brought an Airport express and family members in 2 other units were able to use the wi-fi too.
If this sounds like what you are looking for, you'll be happy with Kihei Kai.
If you need a high end, nice hotel experience, Kihei Kai is not for you.
If you like to sit on the beach all day with a drink and get waited on, I'd recommend a nice beachfront hotel.

The Kihei Kai is a older wooden structure that is well past it's prime. My condo was full of ants and bugs every moment I was there. The condo I was in reminded me of a cheap motel room that you might rent in the middle of the night when your dead tired and have to get off the road. The condo only had air in the bedroom and it was so loud I turned it off. The furniture was cheap, the rugs were old and wrinkled, jeez what a mess. They have a small pool that is unheated and thus, very unused. Some of the old time guests told me that about 25% of the condo's were for sale, so what that means if anything is unclear. Most of the other guests were very old and though friendly were very cliche. Only two of the condo's are truly ocean view, the rest are peekabos with very, very limited ocean view. The beach is a decent walking beach, but can get very windy swirling the sand around. Finally if you are just looking for some cheap dump to stay in in Maui, this might be your place, but if staying in a place that reminds you of the beauty of Hawaii is important, go elsewhere.

Ataying at Kihei Kai is like staying at my own island paradise. It is a small intimate complex of only 24 units. Located right on the beach it was nice to go for morning walks on the beach and still be able to get a lounge chair in the sun for afternoon reading. All of the people there made you feel right at home.
