Mana Kai condo description

Located on Keawakapu Beach on the sunny side of the island, the Mana Kai is a condo complex of 98 privately-owned, luxury two bedroom, two bath units. Walk down the beach to Wailea and the luxury beach front hotels--The Grand Wailea, Four Seasons, and Fairmont's Kea Lani. Play golf at the world class courses at the Blue, Gold and Emerald courses at Wailea or the Makena courses, just a five minute drive down the road. There is also great shopping at the Shops at Wailea, and Kihei Town is less than a mile up the road.

The Mana Kai has recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation that includes a complete remodeling and expansion of the swimming pool. A large lawn area provides sunbathers an option to the sandy beach mere steps from the complex.

We purchased our unit in 2008 as our part-time residence. We completely remodeled it, including replacing the tile floors, expanding the kitchen, installing new kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops and top of the line appliances (Bosch range, dishwasher and microwave, GE full-size refrigerator/freezer), new bathroom cabinets, sinks, toilets and showers, new paint throughout and new furniture, including two king-sized beds, two flat-panel high-definition TV sets, a Bose music system and a completely upgraded air conditioning system for the entire unit. A keyless lock system means you never have to worry about locking yourself out or losing a key at the beach. Chairs, umbrella and boogie boards are also provided at no charge. And needless to say, it comes fully stocked with all the necessities of home that you would expect from a turn-key, top of the line condominium.

We re-decorated in 2013 buying a new corner sectional sofa. What made this possible was moving the TV to a new custom cabinet that sits at the foot of the bed. A remote control raises and lowers the television for viewing in the living room. The TV swivels so you can also watch it in bed. No other unit at the Mana Kai has this feature.

Wake up in the morning, look to your left and watch the sun rise over Haleakala volcano from your balcony while you check your email using our free wireless internet. Look the other way and watch the sun set over the Pacific between Lanai and Kaho'olawe every evening sipping a cocktail. In between you can watch the whales (5,000 spent the spring here in Maui this year) or just sit and watch the paddle boarders, sunbathers and snorkelers down below.

Keawakapu Beach is routinely voted one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii and is home to multi-million dollar homes down its half mile length. Because of its north/south orientation, waves rarely break over a couple feet, so it is extremely kid friendly. Snorkeling off our point is some of the best on the island.

The Five Palms Restaurant is located downstairs. It has been voted the best breakfast place in Maui, has an excellent happy hour at the bar from 3 to 6 daily, and offers gourmet dining nightly. Zack's Deli is located at the other end of the complex and sells sandwiches, food staples and a wide variety of wines and liquor. An on-sight activity desk can help with excursions such as a sunset dinner cruise, a luau, snorkeling off Molokini or riding bikes down Haleakala.

The picture down the beach was taken on a typical late afternoon from the balcony. You can see why couples get married right on the beach several times a week--it is a magical and memorable place, and it is waiting for you and your family. Please email me if you have any questions. Mahalo.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: When our youngest of four children went off to college my wife Deanne and I figured it was time for us to quit the rat race and spend time doing the things we have dreamed about over the years. Scott quit his job as a VP and General Counsel of a Silicon Valley semiconductor company, we sold our house in the San Francisco Bay Area, and bought a condo at the Mana Kai Maui. Our extended family had vacationed here for several Thanksgivings so we knew what we were getting into--our piece of paradise. This picture includes Scott, Deanne and two of our four children--Kevin and Allison, sitting on the patio.

                          Why the Owner Chose Mana Kai:
                          The Mana Kai is so close to the ocean that when we first arrive we have to close the window because the waves are too loud. We take daily walks down the beach and let the warm water wash over our feet and the trade winds blow through our hair. I get up early and watch the sun rise over Haleakala and then, from the same seat on the patio I watch the sun set in the evening. Magic.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Keawakapu Beach is beautiful and very family friendly. The waves rarely break over one or two feet, so young children are free to frolic in the water. Wonderful snorkeling is right on the point. During the Spring you can watch the whales literally jumping out of the water. Scott enjoys golfing and there are four world class golf courses within a five minute car ride. While Scott is golfing Deanne likes to go to the Spa at the Grand Wailea.
