  • A Fantastic Stay

    "This was my first Maui visit and first VRBO stay, and I would stay here again without hesitation. The owner (Gary) was friendly, helpful and responsive and the condo was clean and well maintained. The location is exceptional --- it is the 3rd closest unit to the ocean and overlooks a gorgeous beach (Keawakapu) that is great for walking, sunning or snorkeling. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves every night was dream-like. The unit slept four comfortably in two separate good-sized bedrooms. The keyless entry was a great feature as we were able to go from the unit to the swimming pool in 2 minutes or to snorkeling in the ocean in 3 minutes without having to carry any keys or wallets. On afternoons without any breezes having a/c throughout the unit was terrific. The cabinets and furniture are in excellent condition and appear to have been upgraded fairly recently. The lanai is on the small side, but we could still squeeze a family of four onto it for dinner and the trade-off of a smallish lanai for an exceptional dining view was fully worth it. The kitchen was fairly well stocked, and two sit-down dining options were within steps of the unit while very nice (and more reasonably priced) take-out options were a very short drive away. In addition, the building has a decent-sized mini-mart and equipment rental store on the ground floor. The unit has internet access for those who need to stay connected, and previous guests had left copies of Maui Revealed for those who would rather not stay connected. Laundry facilities are located on each floor of the building (about 15 units per floor). Highly recommended."

  • Lovely condo, amazing view!

    "First of all, 803 at the Mana Kai is a lovely condo inside and out. The owners have it all set up with everything we needed for our stay. The bedroom was very comfortable. We left the windows open so we could hear the ocean all night. The kitchen is well stocked the bathrooms have plenty of towels, including beach towels. My favorite part of this condo, however, was the view. This condo is on the top floor (8th floor) and it has one of the best views at the Mana Kai. Every morning we woke up to have coffee and breakfast on the lanai with a spectacular view. We could often see sea turtles right from the lanai. It's a perfect spot for relaxing and reading a good book. This was our second stay at the Mana Kai. The Mana Kai is on a lovely beach on the South side of Kihei. It's a great location -- close enough to easily travel to the town for groceries, shops, restaurants, but far enough to be away from the crowds. The beach itself is beautiful. We have never seen it crowded. There is nice snorkeling right outside the Mana Kai. The Mana Kai has a good restaurant right downstairs. They have an extended happy hour and it's a great, convenient place to go for a light dinner and drinks. They also have rentals right at the Mana Kai now, something that wasn't present the last time we visited, which was about seven years ago. Now you can rent kayaks, stand up paddle boards, boogie boards and snorkel gear right on site. We took advantage of this and rented both kayaks and stand up paddle boards at reasonable rates. The pool has been re-done since we were last there and it is very pleasant. We never had to fight for lounge chairs at the pool or on the large grassy area next to the beach, as we have had to do at other resorts on Maui. The owners are also very nice. We were scheduled to fly in right when not one, but two hurricanes were projected to hit Hawaii. The owners allowed us to delay our trip at the last minute and we really appreciated that. Overall we had a wonderful stay at 803 Mana Kai. If you want to have a lovely, relaxing vacation, I recommend you come here. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Nine days was not enough."

  • Best beach in Kihei!

    "Absolutely, hands down, the best beach in Kihei! You cannot get closer to the beach, which is wide, plenty of places to snorkel, and has a soft green lawn as well. The condo is just out of town, so there is no traffic noise or congestion. A quick drive to restaurants and other adventures. We will never forget the gorgeous view from our lanai....."

  • Will Definitely Return

    "We just got home from spending 2 weeks in this condo. Location, location, location! This is a perfect condo for walking, swimming, and snorkeling. Kimber (the owner) was an absolute delight to work with. Very thorough with her communication. The condo was well stocked with beach chairs and boogie boards. We especially enjoyed the late checkout due to our late flight. That really made our last day in not having to rush out. Thanks for everything!"
