ON THE BEACH!! BEST SUNSETS!!! SOFT SAND!!!
"Our very first trip off the continental United States and we could not have chosen a better place for my husband and myself and our two grown daughters! We loved sitting on the lanai each morning for bagels, walk on the soft sand beach, go off on our sight seeing and tours and return for showers and of course the "to die for" sunsets!! Very quiet off the main road was an added plus. The pictures show it just as it is. Christine is absolutely a dream to deal with! We only used the air conditioning a couple times to cool it off at night to sleep and if you close it all up and run the a/c and fans it cooled off nicely. By day the tradewinds and open windows and ceiling fans kept us comfortable. We saw turtles every single day popping their heads up and swimming by! The neighbors told us the whales will be coming soon and you can easily watch them from your lanai or the sandy beach! We hope to return in about 15 months to see the whales for ourselves! Perfectly situated in the small of the kidney bean shaped island it was a perfect place to start each day going in different directions. We literally covered every road to circle the island and it was awesome not having to backtrack to get somewhere to start the day! Grocery store literally around the corner as well as gas station. Was fabulous to have wifi in our condo! So many amenities are there you really need just bring clothes and food! Perfect place to sit out in the chairs in the lawn, walk the beach, use the pool, whatever a person wants to do! We were sooooo spoiled having the wonderful sand beach and we walked it and played in the shallow water every day! For snorkeling we went other places as it was a bit murky there and so shallow no reef to speak of. But for a nice place to play with the kids just off the shore was nice, and again just down S. Kihei rood is several beaches with lifeguards if you feel safer there and the water is clearer for snorkeling. Book this unit and you will NOT be sorry. AND FYI--I paid less than the people booking through the condo rental agency! Perfect price, perfect location, perfect unit, and perfect person to work with--Christine! Aloha and many Mahalos for a great vacation we will always remember!"

"This condo was everything we could have wanted to make our Maui vacation perfect. The condo was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the overall furniture was perfect. The access from the back porch of the condo to the pool was about 50 feet and this was very convienent. The pool area was very clean and the outdoor kitchen area at the pool was perfect for grilling. Beach access was a quick 2 minute walk. Great restaurants were withing walking distance, however, a car is necessary to see the island. The condo is stocked with beach chairs and all kind of beach gear you would need to make your stay perfect. I was slightly apprehensive about a community laundry area, however, the laundry facility for this condo is 10 feet away from the front door and was very well kept. Everything went smooth from checking in to accessing the condo. The communication with the owners was very efficient and they gave us excellent directions to the condo. I would recommend this unit for anyone staying in Kihei and would definately return without hesitation. Mahalo to the owners for sharing their piece of paradise."

"My husband and I, along with my brother and sister in law, stayed at this lovely condo for 8 nights and it was absolutely perfect! The condo was exceptionally clean and just the right size for the 4 of us. Beach views from every room were gorgeous and I loved how the beach is within walking distance from the condo, which made for beautiful morning and evening walks on the beach. Sunset views from the main lanai were absolutely stunning.
The water at the beach within walking distance from the condo was sub optimal for swimming, however, it wasn't a big deal because the condo is centrally located between Wailea and Lahaina, which made a 5 minute drive to the Kamaole beaches and Sugar Beach no problem. Beaches in Wailea were absolutely beautiful as well!
Fully equipped kitchen served us well, as we were able to cook breakfast everyday. Kihei was a great place to stay, as it has a bit of everything: great eats (highly recommend the fish tacos and Coconuts!!! Best I've ever had and this is no exaggeration!!! Also, for gluten free patrons, Maui Brick Oven is 100% gluten free and delicious), a couple of bars for night life if desired, and Wailea is only a 10-15 minute drive (Monkeypod restaurant is also amazing).
Getting back to the condo, there is a pool and jacuzzi which we made use of, BBQ area which we also made use of a couple nights, and also shuffleboard (fun!) and volleyball. The condo was also equipped with boogie boards, beach mats, and several items that we took everywhere with us! All in all, we would most definitely stay at Margie and Glenn's condo again. It was absolutely lovely. Additionally, communicating with Margie was fantastic. She is so timely and prompt in responding and very professional."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Overall the Luana Kai property is a great place to stay if the south central side of Maui is your destination. The unit is excellent with a well stocked kitchen for meals and drinks, a great master bedroom and bathroom, a nice set of twin beds in the second room and a full laundry that vents outside. The property is nicely kept up and close to the beach-just a short walk across the open lawn area unlike many that have to cross a road. The unit had lots of beach supplies as a bonus. Would have liked AC at times but otherwise the unit was great."
