About Jennifer, Gary and Jane

Aloha! We are a retired couple that lives half-time on Maui and the remainder in colorful Colorado. We love the Kihei Kai Nani Resort. Since we live in Kihei 7 months of the year, we have the opportunity to keep our rental property in excellent condition. Bookings are now managed by our daughter, Jennifer.

We enjoy meeting our guests and sharing our experiences on Maui.

Jennifer, Gary and Jane purchased this condo in 2002

Why Jennifer, Gary and Jane chose Kihei

We love Maui, and the Kihei Kai Nani is in a perfect location. The property itself is beautifully maintained. The Kihei Kai Nani is close to beautiful beaches, restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and some of the best golf courses in the world. Our returning guests have commented on the walkability of the location and the availability of public transportation.

Kihei Kai Nani Resort is a smoke free complex. The complex does provide 2 areas designated for smoking.

What makes this condo unique

The beautiful view and proximity to the beach are all you need!

Restaurants and shopping are located within walking distance as is the local Maui bus stop.

Fabulous 1 bedroom with a great view only 100 steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This terrific 1 bedroom unit is as good as it looks in the pictures. The kitchen and living area not only look great but also are very functional and filled with great features. Modern appliances, lots of granite countertop, an extra large sink, large refrigerator, stocked with all one needs in a kitchen, good quality washer/dryer and a good sound system. The entire unit has modern and easy keep floor surfaces. The bathroom is roomy with a good shower. And last but definitely not least is the lanai; spacious and offers a spectacular view of the ocean beyond Kamaole beach #2 all the way to the island Kaho'olawe. The perfect spot for coffee/meals while watching the humpback whales play.

We stayed for 5 weeks and this unit provided everything we needed to enjoy life on Maui. It is centrally located in close proximity to water activities, restaurants, beaches and shopping. We are looking forward to our stay here again in 2018!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights in November/December.

The condo is beautifully updated and very comfortable. It is equipped with everything anyone would need.

The location is perfect. We enjoyed having our morning coffee on the lanai with a view of the ocean. The beach, shopping and restaurants are all very close. It would be easy to stay here without the need of a rental car.

Thanks so much Jennifer, Gary and Jane for sharing your condo. We definitely plan to return for a longer stay next time.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the great review, Tami! We're so glad you took advantage of the ocean view from the lanai. I love sitting out there in the mornings, too! You are welcome anytime at our little slice of Maui paradise. ~Jennifer

Excellent condo, views and position!

  • 5 of 5

The instructions and communication with the host were detailed and fast. they even gave us suggestions on what to do, best restaurants, guides, etc!

The condo was very clean. The kitchen has everything someone can possibly need. There are AC and fans. There are two TVs (living room and bedroom). From the balcony you can see the ocean. There are also beach chairs, snorkeling equipment for kids, a big umbrella and a cooler. The bathroom is also big and clean with a nice shower. The bedroom has a king-size bed as per description.

Location is also very cool. Literally across from a nice beach with decent snorkeling and sunset views. Many shops nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A 24-hour supermarket is 1 mile away.

Parking spot just under the balcony.

If I must say something "negative": the king size bed was sinking a little on both sides (nothing to worry about though!). There were just 2 toilet-paper rolls (it would have been nice having some more, just in case...). Finally just to be picky it would be nice having some snorkeling fins for adults (the ones there fits a foot-size 7)(but to be honest there are dozens of shops around where you can rent beach stuff! it was actually nice that the host let us use their stuff!).

To conclude we loved the place since it felt like home! The host are super cool! and we would definitely go back there! It was so sad living Maui!

Wonderful from start to finish!

Great location and very nice condo. Unit was very clean and comfortable. The owners are excellent to work with and very much concerned about making certain that everything is there for the renter. Looking forward to returning on our next trip to Maui.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic experience with the owner and the management company of this complex. Lucky to have been the first building closest to the beach (the property goes back quite a bit). We could see our rental car from our balcony, along with view of the beach and partial sunset vibes!

The apartments kitchen is very well equipped with everything you would ever need (we were a couple, but 4 people could easily use all the dishes, cutlery, tupperware etc). Many towels, great bathroom, 2 tv's, and air con in the living room area BUT no aircon in the bedroom, which is were it is needed the most. At this time of year we had the ceiling fan and stand-alone fan going full blast (which is very loud) with almost no bedding on and it was still really hot in the bedroom, so be prepared! During the morning/day is definitely livable in there thou, it just keeps warming up closer to night time. Lots of items to bring to the beach including a cooler, 2 beach chairs, a beach umbrella, frisbee, nerf football. We rented snorkel gear as we snorkeled everyday, but they do have 2/3 sets but probably not a good as the rental places. Never used the pool so don't really know about that, although it looks nice!

We did get locked out on the balcony once as when you shut the sliding door and the latch is NOT on 'open' it automatically latches/locks! We yelled to the security guy who drives around in a golf cart and he got permission to come into our unit and let us out! lol.

Everything was really clean and well laid out and we enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you!
