ReviewsWrite a review
Property was nicely located, clean, and people in other condos were friendly. The pool was nice and beach was a little walk and short sandy area. Great to watch sunsets at. Kitchen seemed full loaded with supplies if you want to cook, which we didn't. There is a great restaurant called cafe O'le for dinner and other ones in Kihei. Breakfast on lanai is great. One thing that was difficult was opening the sliding glass door, you need to be Ironman to open it. You need to open the louvers by the sliding glass door and in the bedroom to try to catch a cross breeze. My only complaint would be if you are a light sleeper and the bedroom louvers are open you can hear people arriving at night and leaving in the morning. If you are not a light sleeper it wouldn't matter. Otherwise a great place to stay. Loved the key code to open the door.

Owner response: Aloha Deb ! Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the condo, the use of the kitchen and amenities. We pride ourselves on keeping the unit clean and well stocked with all the comforts of home. As for the parking every unit has parking near the condo. The upside is a short walk to unit and the parking is free for guests as well which is not the case at all condos and hotels. The large park adjacent to the ocean is lovely for walking, relaxing or going out to play tennis on the ocean view tennis courts. I agree that Cafe O Lei is a great place to eat and we recommend that highly. Sounds like you had a nice holiday and overall enjoyed your stay at the condo. I'll have our on-island contact check the lanai sliding door. All the windows were just professionally cleaned prior to your arrival. That may have affected the lanai door. Because we are on the ocean, we get the salt and sand and the large lanai doors can get sticky in the well that it typically glides in. Hopefully you utilized the other windows in the living room, kitchen and bath and the two ceiling fans to help with a cross breeze. That works well for most guest in the afternoon/evening. Glad the keyless access worked well for you. We've had many guests really like keyless access. Thank you for your comments. Warm Alohas ! Gayle Larson

Luana Kai is the perfect location for seeing Maui. The condo was very clean and very comfortable. Lots of bathroom space. Overhead fans to cool you off and a screen door right outside to the grassy lawn. Watching kite surfing and wind surfing from the lanai and with the beach sounds and the birds it definitely was paradise. I enjoyed the cable and WiFi and the wonderful fresh fruit!! I will come back for sure.

We missed our connection from Honolulu to Maui by 10 minutes, due to Air NZ flight time change and painfully slow Customs clearance at Honolulu airport. Up at 3a.m. to catch first flight out to Maui. Things can only get better and they did. The condo at Luana Kai was just as we expected, roomy, great view to the ocean, huge bed and all the mod cons. Washing machine, dryer, huge microwave large oven and hob etc,etc. We watched the tennis buffs each morning and fabulous sunsets in the evening. Added bonuses included Costco, Safeways, Macys and the Swap Meet each Saturday morning. We shall return but next time during the Whale sightseeing season. Mahalo

Our Big Reward
Our Big Reward
We arrived on Maui after an incredibly stressful 5 years. Our trip and our stay at this condo was the carrot we dangled to survive the stress. We were not disappointed. We loved the downstairs corner unit for the views we got off both walls, and for the way we could feel the breeze or wind when it came through one window and out the other. Every morning we had coffee on the lanai, listening to the birds, watching the waves, or the early morning tennis players. The condo had all the amenities, and in fact, liked the pans so much that we bought them for our new home when we got back. The first level made access to the beach, the grass, the pool and shuffleboard incredibly easy and made storing the bikes that we rented on the Lanai extremely convenient. The stone flooring was always cool to our feet, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Basically we walked in and felt right at home. Our only suggestion would be to have more beach towels, but we had enough, just had to wash them daily, which wasn't a problem. We loved the cabana and all the outdoor bbq's around that pool, and the way the tiki torches looked at night. And that you could be pool side and see the ocean. WE felt incredibly spoiled and comfortable in this condo! As a side note, one of the things we chose to do while we were there was to go without a car. We rented bikes for two weeks. Mainly to increase the power of our down time. We found this condo to be perfectly located for that and we were able to lock our bikes on our large lanai. While we were beach front, we could still bike to the store (or walk if we wanted) bike to Wailea or Ma'alea. We even used the newer bus system which stops just down the street and went to the aquarium, met a couple doing that, and took a bus to dinner with them in Wailea a few days later. We would highly recommend this property as a great place to stay, to get to be beach front, and feel a part of the community.

We stayed for ten day in this condo and it was just beautiful. You can watch the wales when they pass by and the sunset view is also spectacular. We also liked the extras like beach towels and chairs. The condo is located close enough to the next supermarket but also far enough from places where it's too busy, i.e. noisy. We had a perfect vacation on Maui.

Owner response: Aloha Stefan, Thank you for the kind comments about the Unit D101/Luana Kai. We know you travelled all the way from Germany to visit Maui. So glad to hear you liked the condo location and ammenities in the unit. And yes, the whales are so spectacular to have right from the condo living room and Lanai. The quiet and yet the closeness to the markets, restaurants, etc... We hope you had safe travels to Molokai from Maui and back to Germany. Many Mahalos ! Gayle and Frank

We stayed at this condo for a wedding and it was amazing!!! The view is breathtaking. It was so wonderful having coffee in the morning on the lanai looking at the ocean. The place is amazing. The bed was very comfortable and our friend who stayed with us said the hideabed was very comfortable. Other people who were there for the wedding rented directly from the condo management and their condos were not as nice or clean. The gpool and hot tub area of the condo complex was amazing and it has a full kitchen and BBQ set up. I highly recommend renting this condo!

GREAT OCEANFRONT CONDO
GREAT OCEANFRONT CONDO
Just completed 5 wonderful weeks at this very nice condo. The newly remodelled condo provided us with all we needed during our stay plus being on the ground floor and with the keyless entry made the well groomed grounds and pool area very accessable without going up and down stairs or worrying about a key. The view from the lanai was great for enjoying your morning Kona coffee while watching the whales or enjoying the unforgetable sunsets. The owners Gayle and Frank are very accomodating and very easy to deal with making every effort to ensure your visit at their Maui condo is enjoyable and goes smoothly. We would highly recommend this condo and plan on returning again next January. Thank you Gayle and Frank for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful Maui condo. Mahalo Ken and Gail Ontario Canada

Owner response: Aloha Ken and Gail, Good to hear you had safe travels back home. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and appreciate your kind words. We are fortunate in that many nice people such as you and Gail visit and return. We're having the new king size bed delivered in 2 weeks. We too, love the location of the condo in the complex. Having a groundfloor, corner unit with extra windows not next to another buidling makes for more privacy but still have the ammenities of the entire complex. Very much appreciate your review. My best, Gayle
Amazing sunsets, lovely location

This condo is situated ideally for great sunset views and morning jogs along the beach. Easy access to all the island has to offer, with a great setting to grill and enjoy an evening glass of wine. Property is quiet and relaxed. Great snorkeling and kayaks minutes away. Ocean views without the crowds. Thank you, Gayle and Frank, for a lovely home away from home.
