              Owner info

              Why the Owner Chose Luana Kai:
              I grew up in Hawaii and have lived on Maui for over twenty years. We could have bought anywhere on Maui but after looking at every direct oceanfront building, we chose this one for it's location, amenities and management. It was a long wait before one of the direct ocean facing units we wanted finally became available. This is one of the smaller low rise complexes which gives it more of an intimate feeling and less of a 'hotel' vibe. With the magnificent lawn leading to the beach we are assured an unobstructed view of the ocean, sunsets and smaller outer islands. It's location in central Kihei means it has easy access to anywhere on Maui and of course anywhere in Kihei itself. We're confident you will love it as much as we do. And based on the large number of return guests we get it's pretty obvious we made a good decision in waiting for this place to become available. Have a look at our calendar and you'll notice we're very booked up nearly a year out - mostly return visitors.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Everyone loves the romantic and peaceful setting of this property. The beautiful lawn and stretch of beach it leads to are both very quiet and only lightly used. The grounds gardens are meticulous adding to the feeling of serenity. This property is one of the only places in all of Hawaii with such a set up. If you are a non smoker you'll love the fact that the entire property is non smoking (except a couple designated ares in the parking lot)- another rarity in Maui and Hawaii. Even the pool, jacuzzi, saunas, putting green and tennis courts are lightly used. Most of the other complexes do not offer all of these amenities. We also offer use of the use of racquets, clubs, beach towels, concierge service, use of computer & printer and more - all free of charge. Unlike most other properties, this place has tons of parking. And you will always be able to get a spot only a short walk to your front door. You simply will not find all of these options available any where else. And so many other unique features that will make your stay with us on Maui a memorable one.
