Overview

About the property

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

This beautiful Beachfront Condo on the top floor of the Mana Kai building (#812) has breath-taking unobstructed ocean views, and southerly views extending for miles down the Wailea coastline. It has all the amenities anyone needs for extended stays and yes, it is s FULLY AIR CONDITIONED unit, an even numbered unit ( and not by the elevators so it has a great ocean view from the B bedroom as well), a free reserved parking space, and quality furnishings and decor!

This two-bedroom, two-bath condo is ideal for families, or for one or two couples. There is a King bed in each bedroom, and the sofa in the living room turns into a Queen size bed.

It has a full kitchen stocked with dishes and cookware for the times that you want to stay in and have ocean-view dining on the large lanai or dining table. Want to grill instead? Just reserve one of the gas grills out on the lawn with the front desk.

The ocean view is enhanced by a design which leaves the master bedroom open to the living area but also has a custom bamboo retractable shoji screen for privacy. You can literally see the ocean from every part of this condo!

There is an office center built into the second bedroom for the times you need to get some work done and High-Speed wireless INTERNET is available at no additional charge.

This bedroom also has its own TV apart from the Flat Screen TV in the main living area.

Each bathroom has a hairdryer and beach towels besides all the bath towels you'll need.

Enjoy the heated swimming pool with waterfall or snorkeling on the reefs at Keawapaku Beach just steps from the the Resort entrance. On premises is a Four Star restaurant with a great happy hour,, a Gourmet Convenience Store, beach Rental store, a Fitness Center, and an Activity Center to plan your outings.

During the December to March months you are sure to spot the Humpback whales that migrate 3000 miles from Alaska to the warm Maui waters, known to be the nation's primary mating and birthing grounds for this amazing mammal. Watch them jump and spout right from your lanai, or listen to their songs as you snorkel under the water. Just be careful not to run into a turtle! (It's happened ;)

And don't forget your golf clubs, because there are 5 world-class golf courses are just minutes away in Wailea and Makena.

The Mana Kai Maui Resort is located at the extreme south end of Kihei, bordering Wailea. This is a one of a kind property to be found at no other location in all of Maui. In addition, the Mana Kai continues to make improvements, keeping it a true first class resort.

About Yasmine

Aloha! My name is Yasmine and my parents own 4 Mana Kai condos that I help rent and manage for them. I live in Washington State where my husband is in law enforcement and we have a few acres for our horses, chickens, and 3 boys to run wild. We've been married 15 years and love to travel, but it's getting harder now with the demands of school, sports, and music lessons. We still try to get to Maui at least twice a year though, with or without the kids!

Yasmine purchased this condo in 2008

Why Yasmine chose Kihei

My parents discovered the Mana Kai when I was young--probably about 7 or 8 years old--and then we became annual visitors, spending every spring break there until I graduated from High School. Then a few years ago, on an anniversary trip, my parents decided to invest in the resort that brought us so many happy memories. My siblings and I would spend hours on this beach, boogie boarding, body surfing, and playing in the sand. My Dad says there is a sort of 'magic' about this spot. We explored the rest of Maui and the other Hawaiian islands, but always kept coming back here. The combination of the angle of the building, the height of the building, sunny weather, and the family friendly beach makes it a unique spot on Maui. Also, the Mana Kai has become a fabulous resort with wonderful upgrades and amenities.

What makes this condo unique

You just can't beat the view, every time we come it takes our breath away. We also love hearing the crash of the ocean waves, and often sleep with only the screen door shut so we can fall asleep to it. Jason likes to get up early, and every morning I would wake to see him on the lanai, sipping guava juice and watching the ocean. As a kid, I remember arriving at the Mana Kai and rushing through the lobby and onto the beach before my parents even had the luggage out of the car. Sometimes renters ask me, 'how far do we have to walk to the beach?', and I'm always so glad to answer that question: 'Just through the lobby, past the pool, and you're THERE!'

Only stay at Mana Kai when in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Greatest condo but getting quite a bit more pricey than in past, everything on Maui has gone way up in prices even in slowest month of October

Still a great trip!

Pure paradise - and the best beach view on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Highest possible recommendation. This condo is spacious (two king-size beds), comfortable (lots of room for guests to spread out), and thoroughly modern (air conditioning, new appliances, big flat-screen TV, wireless internet, you name it), situated on the top floor of a well-run resort complex. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer an absolutely breathtaking view all day long. The windows face south, so you never have to worry about direct sun streaming in and overheating the condo. The lanai (veranda) is a wonderful shady and breezy spot to relax with a drink and good book.

You'll be a short elevator ride from the condo to the resort's warm saltwater pool, delicious Five Palms restaurant, well-stocked convenience store, and an excursion shop that can set you off on adventures all over the island. The beach is only fifty yards from the lobby, so you can dive into the surf in no time. The resort has a lovely private grassy area shaded by palm trees where you can set up lounge chairs and make a "base camp" for your day at the beach.

The resort is positioned between Kihei and Wailea, offering easy access to a wide variety of dining and shopping options, along with other beaches--but you seriously only need the one that comes with the condo. There's a large area of volcanic rock on one side that's perfect for snorkeling, and one of our highlight moments was when a big turtle surfaced right in the middle of our group as we floated in the crystal-clear ocean.

The photos can't do justice to the true beauty of this place. Every single day my family spent here was a pure joy, and we're already figuring out when we can go back. The owner, Yasmine, is friendly and responsive to any questions. The resort staff members are great, and we felt well taken care of by everyone. I can't imagine wanting to stay anyplace else when I visit Maui.

Beautiful condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view from this fresh,clean, and comfortable condo. Top floor location was quiet and away from loud celebrations below. Snorkling is great at the Mana Kai with lots of turtles. Yasmine was welcoming and quick to respond to inquiries. Thank you!
