About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come in and visit paradise in our newly remodeled, air conditioned two bedroom, two bath condo located right on one of Maui's finest beaches.

The entire kitchen was just updated with new custom cabinets, all new appliances, granite countertops and new flooring throughout. The guest bath was redone with new cabinets, granite, flooring, tub and fixtures! You aren't going to want to leave!

Our beach - Sugar Beach - was just voted #7 in all of Maui by Maui Best Guidebook for walking, swimming and boogie boarding!!

We are located at Makani A Kai, a wonderful family style complex of deluxe, townhouse condominiums, each unit is set back from the other for privacy on lushly landscaped grounds. Our Maui home has an ocean view, sleeps six and has all the amenities but you and your swimsuit! Whale watch right from your lounge chair in the Winter.

We are centrally located in Maalaea. Just fifteen minutes from the airport, ten minutes from Kihei and twenty minutes from Lahania. Take a walk on five miles of one of Maui's finest beaches, watch the sunset as you relax in the evening or for you early risers view the magnificent sunrise over Haleakala! We are a short walk to the Maui Ocean Center and Maalaea Harbor. Here you can find several restaurants, including The Waterfront - one of Maui's premier 5 star restaurants, shops and an assortment of ocean tours.

Why Lynn Grady chose Maalaea

We chose Makani A Kai because of its central loction, the gorgeous view from the lanai and the lawn in front and because of the beauty and Hawaiin feel of the condo itself. Over the years we have added Hawaiian art work, bedding and floral arrangements. We want to feel like we are Maui when we are here and are sure you do too. We also enjoy the privacy of our beach. On a 'busy' day there might be 10 other swimmers or boogie boarders! It's quiet and secluded yet if you want to be part of the crowd, you re only 10 to 20 minutes from anywhere you want to go!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Lynn, Hi as you probably may or may not remember we just finished our stay at your home in Maui. Lynn it was wonderful! I'm not one who usually takes a "chance" on unknown accomodations, however you were true to your word. Your home is lovely, well positioned and the grounds were great. To be honest I am selfishly reluctant to tell others about the best kept secret in the "Hawaiian Islands". This was the best vacation I have had. Mahalo.

Quiet and relaxing. Loved our morning walks on the beach. Snorkeling with the turtles. Close to everything. We would love to come back!

This VRBO was not very clean and in some disrepair with old worn out mattresses. Don’t stay here.

  • 1 of 5

This VRBO was advertised as having brand new mattresses. Which the owner confirmed again on the telephone with me prior to our arrival. My elderly parents, my sister and my girlfriend and I couldn’t believe how uncomfortable the beds were. No one could sleep more than a 1-2, maybe 3 hours at a time, and we were all waking up sore. It was so awful. We washed the sheets half way through our 12 night stay and found the mattresses were purchased in 2012 and 2004. I took photos of everything. There was old urine stains on one of the mattress pads. The carpets were dirty and stained. The shower handle comes off in your hand and the shower head is coming out of the wall. The patio door shakes back and forth in its tracks with the wind and a real struggle to open and close because it is so rusty. The upstairs sink has no drain stop, just a hole. There was no dishwasher or laundry soap, there was no paper towel or extra toilet paper. What the television lacked in quality and inches was made up for in the 8 remotes left out for us? When we arrived I found sand and a piece of LEGO under the couch and 2 Cheezies under the bed. The baseboards looked like they had never been wiped down. This condo complex is Oceanfront but this unit is at the back of the complex with an excellent view of the public parking lot next door with partial view of the ocean. Commercial airplanes fly overhead several times a day and night. Many of these issues would not be enough to ruin a vacation but the fact that no one in my family had one decent night of sleep and every single one of us woke up aching is absolutely unacceptable. The fact that the owner lied to me right on the phone regarding new mattresses is incredible. The fact that we paid so much for this experience makes me feel ill.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear that there were issues with this stay. However, at no time did this guest ever contact me or my on island manager with any problems or even a hint of an issue. Between Cindy, my on island manager and myself, we pride ourselves on providing full customer service for all of our guests. Had we known of any of the issues we would have been out immediately to take care of any problems or sent the appropriate trade person. There is always a basic supply of toilet paper, paper towels and dishwashing soap. Laundry detergent is not provided. As to the beds, they are firm mattresses. However at no time did this guest and I ever discuss their age. I would have remembered that conversation for it being unusual. All of the linens are washed between every guest and old or worn out replaced. I will have the shower, sink and sliding glass door looked at immediately. It’s unfortunate that the guest did not call for assistance as she was provided with two numbers for just such purposes.

Perfect, convenient, quiet

  • 5 of 5

The property was quiet and beautiful. We were able to settle in and swim with turtles that same evening. The location was perfect, central to the island making it so convenient.

The perfect vaction

  • 5 of 5

Lynn's condo worked very well for our family of 4 during our recent vacation to Maui. It was clean and just as depicted in the photos. We had everything that we needed for our stay and were quite comfortable. We like to explore, and the location was perfect for heading out to both sides of the island. We never had any trouble with the parking being full and the condo community was very calm and quiet. It was exactly what I had hoped for. Thanks again!

Lovely Property

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoy staying at the Makani A Kai again. It's a beautiful property that's quiet and located on the beach. You have miles of beach with very few people.

The sleeping arrangements were not ideal for my group but we made it work. The queen "bedroom" is a loft so there's no privacy. We were disappointed there were no boogie boards as we were expecting from reading previous reviews. The kitchen is very well stocked.

Owner's Response: Aloha Korina, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Unfortunately the boogie boards are an insurance issue. If a guest were to get injured there could be a problem so no boogie boards can be provided. Otherwise they'd be there! Hope to see you again. Lynn
