Superior is a perfect description of this unit
Superior is a perfect description of this unit
I have been staying in this unit for years because the location of the unit is at the water's edge with the most spectacular views in all directions. The beach is the most beautiful on Maui, perhaps on all the islands. The building is located away from all the major hotel crowds. The remodeling is gorgeous. The experience on this island and at this specific location is priceless.

The Best of the Best
The Best of the Best
Couldn't say it any better. Been visiting here since 1975. Friends have stayed elsewhere on Maui and after being to their places we've found the Mana Kai and #501 to be the best place to stay. With the excellent update on the unit and all of the amenities and comfort we haven't found any better. It's like being HOME, far away from home and on a piece of paradise. 501 is very well maintained and housekeeping has kept it immaculate. It has changed a bit but only for the better. The owners have been pleasant, gracious and very understanding. Liz and Jay are great to work with, just like their mom and dad were. We are back home now in Oklahoma but our minds and memories still linger on our past week's experience, long to be remembered. God willing we will be back! Thanks Liz for the warm reception.

Perfect family vacation
Perfect family vacation
This was a perfect location for a relaxing family vacation. The beds were comfortable and everything was just as the pictures were shown. The condo is well stocked with most items you need. The staff & management who run the building are friendly and helpful. Having a restaurant, deli and beach gear rental on site was very convenient. Boogie boards were only $20 per weekly rental. The beach is ideal for young children. The best time for the beach is to be there in the morning as the water is calmer. Because the beach was steps away we didn't think we needed the pool but we were wrong. It was really nice to go for a dip in the pool after the beach. It was so convenient that we had easy access to both beach and pool! We actually did not to go to any other beach. For beginner snorkelers the reef next to the building is perfect. Further down the beach, without even going in the water, we were able to see turtles coming up for air. Delightful! The condo owners and their onsite management were prompt and very easy to deal with and made for a worry free vacation. Thank you for having your place available for others! Unit 501 is the best location because it is at the end of building closest to the beach...very private. We highly recommend this unit to anyone wishing to stay at Mana Kai. Mahalo!

This unit is phenominal! The sound of the surf really soothes the soul. The room decor is gorgeous and the view is outstanding.

What an amazing condo. My wife and I came there for our Honeymoon. Such a great location and the view: holy s**t. You are in the corner unit on 5th floor which overlooks one of the best beaches in Kihei. You fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the ocean with the bedroom bed right next to the lanai. No stay in Kihei, let alone Maui, should go without staying at this place. I researched for months looking at condos for our first trip to Hawaii and boy did I score a jackpot. Look no further. Apartment has all the things needed for your stay: basic staple foods, all kitchen stuff, some beach gear (no boogy board or lounge chairs tho), board games, etc. Restaurant downstairs was ridiculously overpriced ($18 for bagel with lox and cream cheese; coming from bagel capital of the world in Brooklyn NY, this is insane) but has good happy hour. Nearby to a lot of good, and even "cheap" restaurants. Coral reef literally in front of the unit has plenty of wildlife to see including turtles. No special tours required, just grab a snorkel set. Within 1 mile of the rest of the best beaches of Maui (Kam 1, 2, 3) and even a nude beach for thrill seekers (Little Beach). If owners ever decide to sell the property, give me a call. I would love to buy it, haha. My only complaint is lack of snorkel gear, beach lounge chairs, and boogy boards. If owners got those 3 things, there would be NOTHING to add to compete with the best of the condos in Maui.

The view from the lanai is breathtaking, and when I am stressed, I imagine myself back there, looking out at whales jumping and sprouting in the gentle ocean off our condo, and enjoying the views of all the islands I can see in the distance. I could also look down on my children on the beach or in the pool. This is my idea of a perfect place to be. I ca

About the owner: John and Betty Champion were original owners in the Mana Kai Maui, and the Champion family has NEVER missed an annual owner's meeting for this award winning resort, located directly on one of the most magnificent beaches in the world. The Mana Kai recently underwent a five million dollar remodel, and for beach walkers, Keawakapu Beach meets the Wailea beaches, and you can walk continuously over a mile south. Right below our end unit is unbelievable snorkeling, with hundreds of varieties of fish and plants, including Hawaii's endangered sea turtles. Our lanai faces a channel which is a breeding ground for whales, and during the winter months, you can see them spouting, breaching, and frolicking in the ocean. Expect to say WOW when you see this unit. 'NO KA OI' (there is none better).
Why the Owner Chose Mana Kai:
There are totally unobstructed views from every room of Mana Kai 501. The back bedroom has no walkway outside, so the drapes can stay open to enjoy the full beauty of the ocean. The fifth floor is the perfect location in this eight story building, not too low, not too high.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
501 has a fully equipped kitchen with specialty items such as a deluxe expreso/cappuccino/coffee maker, blender, and other extras to make your stay more enjoyable. There is a desk in each of the the front and back units, two flat screen TVs, BluRays, complementary WIFI, and even a printer available for your use.
