About the property

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

This beautiful Beachfront Condo on the 4th floor of the Mana Kai building (#404) 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 on the lawn at 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 hair dryer, beach towels and 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, a Gourmet Convenience Store, a beach equipment 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. And because of some of the improvement renovations taking place in 2017, you can enjoy our lowest rates from now through October! Book now, these discounted rates won't last long!

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 South Maui

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 here until I graduated from High School. We often visited the other Hawaiian islands, other beaches, and other condos, but this property and beach became our standout favorite.

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 and 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, everytime 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!'

Bend, OR

The unit, location and view were ideal. However, see below.

  • 2 of 5

We should have been told that there was major construction going on and it was very noisy. Also, on Tuesday we were told to get everything off the counters and floors as they were fumigating the entire building. It was like packing up all over again and we were told to stay out of the unit for at least 2 hours after the building was done.

Then on Wednesday, without warning, they pumped out the septic system. The smell was overwhelming and you either had to stay in your unit or leave.

We felt we should have been warned and at the very least be offered a refund of some sort.

Because of this we will probably never use that facility again.

Your comment above would not let me choose"not really".

Ideal Location for Family!

  • 4 of 5

The property and condo were the ideal location for two grandparents, 3 grandkids and their mom. So much access to the pool and ocean. We loved it. Wish the elevator issues could have been resolved but we had a terrific time on the beach, in the pool, snorkeling, kayaking, walking and talking. Thanks!

Gorgeous location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was an ideal place to call home for our 3 days in Wailea. The location is ideal for easy access to shopping/dining in Kihei, and offers a resort experience with less of the resort crowds. The lanai/bedroom view is of the beautiful beach out front and the pool, while the second bedroom still has an ocean view from the backside of the unit. The condo has modern amenities and is spacious and comfortable. We stayed in the main 'bedroom' fronting the lanai which can be made private with sliding shinto screens (which have plastic opaque panels, not paper), our 6 yr old slept on the large pullout which is in the living room right beyond the screens (great for the little ones who may be a little scared in a new place... but still allows mom/dad a little separation), and my 21 yr old daughter loved having what is basically her own hotel room (with bathroom, mini-fridge, tv and a door with a separate keycode if you wanted to use it that way) in the 'real' bedroom.

The beach is sandy and great for swimming or any water activities, really. We rented a kayak from the beach rental store downstairs. There's a large convenience store, also, which was very... convenient. The attached restaurant was delicious, with dining on a patio overlooking the beach also. We used the pool nightly, which is on the smaller side, but hardly occupied and HEATED so it's so easy to take a quick dip even in the windy evenings.

Having a reserved parking spot and no need to valet every time we came and went was awesome, because we went often to Kihei (shops start about 1 mile north) for shopping and less resorty dining. Also, gorgeous beaches (Kamaole beach park) there, but we loved the Keawakapu beach at the condo so much, we didn't feel a need to visit others. There is a reef with excellent snorkeling, even tide pools for the little one, and a long sandy beach right downstairs, so why bother??? We saw a sea turtle and octopus along the reef.

The condo is walking distance to the Kihei boat ramp, for some of the small boat snorkeking tours that leave to Molokini crater...I highly recommend these smaller, more intimate snorkel tours over the ones with 200 people that depart from Ma'alaewa (30 minutes away!). The condo is also convenient to Makena beach (15 minutes) where we took a beach-loading sunset cruise on the a 65 ft sailing catamaran (highly recommend!).

Thank you for a relaxing stay at your fantastic condo!

Fantastic location, Fantastic property

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in late June and found the place to be exactly as pictured. What a wonderful view to have - right on the beach! The condo has a great stocked kitchen so that we were able to make breakfast every morning and enjoy on the wonderful lanai. The beach is steps away and a great family beach where we snorkeled and boogie boarded. You can rent the equipment right in the store downstairs. Also a wonderful restaurant is on site as well as a small store which had a decent plate lunch. Everything you need is right here, you really never have to leave. Great location in south Kihe, close to great shops and restaurants in Wailea.

Yasmine was easy to work with and there were no issues. We would go back for sure!
