  • Fantastic Family Holiday

    "We loved staying at Luana Kai, the condo was fantastic and had everything we needed for our family holiday. The location was great and the facilities at the resort were perfect for families. The pool was fantastic with young children and very safe. We would defiantly stay here again."

  • Lovely condo near best beaches on Maui

    "My wife and I joined a number of other family members in Maui for 2 weeks. Other family members chose to stay in other condo complexes nearby. Ours was easily the nicest. The complex has 2 very nice pool areas with BBQ's...and many other BBQ's scattered about the complex, including a couple close to this unit. This condo was spacious and modern with a nice lanai looking out over the ocean, albeit looking over the boat launch parking area and through some power lines. In this section of Kihei, however, almost all condos are across the road from the beaches...so few of the complexes in this area will give an unobstructed view. But, we still enjoyed some very nice sunset views from the lanai. After having driven around the entire island, we concluded that Kihei and nearby Wailea have the largest number and best beaches. Kihei also gets the best weather. So if you like variety of beaches and snorkeling opportunities, Kihei is place to be and this condo an excellent choice to stay. The owner is also wonderful to work with. Very responsive and provided loads of useful information. Favorites: 1) The "Dumps" for snorkeling (by far best aside from Molokini)...but not great beach for anything else 2) Rent a paddleboard at Maui Wave Riders across from Kalama Park, $30 for day (if you rent along beach in Wailea or Kaanapali, it will be about $40/hour) 3) 5 Palms restaurant for a great dinner with view 4) Snorkel trip to Molokini....we booked with Seafire Charters (http://seafirecharters.com/Molokini_Snorkeling.html) and were very happy. They use smaller boats (up to 22 people max) than many and depart from the boat launch right across the street making very convenient. They focus more on snorkeling, less on the food/cruising...just the way we wanted. 5) Black Sand Beach near Hana 6) Warren & Annabelle's magic show in Lahaina 7) Hike/bike Haleakal Crater 9) Road to Hana. But if you do this, don't turn around and go back same way. Continue going all the way around. Even though some maps and rental car agents say "don't do it"...it's ok if you are used to narrow roads 10) Kamaole 1,2,3 beaches are good but can be crowded. Keawakapu and Poolenalena Beaches are less crowded but nice 11) Hookipa Beach to watch the surfers (especially in big waves). Bonus: Green turtles come up on far right side of beach (when looking at ocean) from 4:00 to 6:30 in eve. AWESOME!! Sit and watch nature in action."

    "This property was exactly as stated, right across the road is the ocean, you can watch them learn to surf all day long. A perfect view on the sunset every night right from your Lania while relaxing with your favorite beverage, the pool area and BBQs are kept immaculate. close to all kinds of restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay here again, owner was great to deal with. Mahalo."
