NOTE: I do not advertise on Craigslist, so please don't book with anyone claiming to represent Maui Kai 807 on Craigslist.

Maui Kai 807 is a boutique oceanfront studio condo in West Maui on North Kaanapali Beach.

Maui Kai is a 10-story building with only 8 units on each floor, all with unobstructed oceanfront views.

Its concrete block construction provides peace and quiet - all you hear is the sound of the ocean waves!

Our recently remodeled oceanfront studio on the 8th floor has been decorated to reflect the Hawaiian spirit. Amenities include daily maid service, central A/C, 32" flat-screen high-definition cable TV with HD DVR, Blu-Ray DVD, CD player, iPod docking station, FREE high-speed Wi-Fi and cable Internet connection, queen bed, easy chairs, dining table and desk for your laptop computer, all with views of the ocean and spectacular sunsets.

The fully-equipped kitchen has all the amenities for making a gourmet meal: refrigerator with filtered drinking water and ice maker, full-size stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, all of the kitchen utensils and appliances a foodie could desire and a vast array of local and Asian cuisine cookbooks.

Maui Kai has a heated pool, Jacuzzi and 2 gas barbecues. The pool area has picnic tables and outdoor furniture for hosting meals with friends and family. Inside the pool cabana is a full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven and bathrooms. The cabana also has a lending library, and ping-pong table. It also has a FREE computer with a high-speed Internet connection for checking your email, surfing the web and printing your boarding passes.

Maui Kai 807's private oceanfront lanai (balcony) allows you to sit and dine outside with complete and total privacy from your neighbors while enjoying the unparalleled 180° view of the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

You may never leave your private lanai! The views of the brilliant blue ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai are spectacular. Nowhere in Hawaii but West Maui can you get such a view. During whale season you can use the binoculars in our condo to watch the humpback whales from your front row seats on the lanai, some as close as 100 yards offshore!

Shortly before you leave for your stay in Maui Kai 807, I will email you the latest monthly edition of my Local Girl's Guide to Maui. The guide started as a list I gave my friends of my favorite restaurants on Maui but over the years I've added information about my favorite local foods, where to buy them, farmers markets, beaches, snorkeling spots, hikes, excursions and of course shopping!

The guide offers my unique perspective as a local Hawaii girl who has grown up, lived in and experienced the islands her entire life. I normally charge $10 for the guide but if you book our unit I will give it to you for FREE! Even if you don't book our unit, please feel free to contact me about purchasing the guide.

About Donna Bender

My husband and I first visited Maui Kai in 1974.

We've returned every year since and bought Unit 807 in 1988.

Donna Bender purchased this condo in 1988

Why Donna Bender chose Kaanapali

You can't get any closer to the ocean than Maui Kai. The privacy from the lanai is unparalleled - your neighbors can't see you and people on the beach can't see you.

What makes this condo unique

Maui Kai 807 is directly oceanfront with a spectacular oceanfront view of the islands of Lanai and Molokai and gorgeous sunsets every night. The concrete block construction means you cannot hear your neighbors - all you hear is the ocean! We love falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves.


45-minute drive from Kahului Airport (OGG)

Excellent Maui Kai getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience to book the Maui Kai with the owner of this unit. The confirmation process was very easy. The owner provided her Local Girl's Guide to Maui. Even though we live in the state, we are not on Maui enough to keep up. The guide was a perfect way to know the best new places to add to our old favorites! We are not fond of the mega hotel complexes so we found Maui Kai the ideal place for us. The view from the condo is amazing. The condo is nicely furnished and the location is fantastic. I highly recommend the Maui Kai and working with this owner.

Return to Maui Kai

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd stay at Maui Kai. Both times we booked through the owner of this unit. We spent 19 nights at Maui Kai and enjoyed our second visit even more than our first. At Maui Kai you are literally right on the water. Mornings and evenings on the lanai were our favorite times, when we enjoyed our coffee or wine while watching humpback whales in the channel against the beautiful backdrop of the islands of Lana'i and Molokai. We also find Maui Kai very conveniently located for day trips to other parts of the island. Our unit was very spacious, clean, and attractive and we enjoyed the pool and cabana area where we grilled fresh fish from the market just a short walk down the road. All in all, our stay was wonderful, and we have already contacted this owner again and booked 16 nights next January and February.

Staying At Maui Kai

  • 5 of 5

Twice a year I stay at this unit at the Maui Kai. Over the years I have stayed at a lot of different condos on Maui, but none compare to this one because of location, views, and friendly staff. I also like the fact there are no resort fees plus it has free parking and free WiFi In addition Donna always gives us her Local Girl's Guide to Maui, which is full of helpful hints of things to do and places to eat.

No better resort to watch the ocean and sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We booked a 2-bedroom suite at Maui Kai through the owner of this unit. Best thing about this condo is the million-dollar view that is superior to much more expensive hotels. In the Kaanapali area, most hotels are set a way back from shore, so you get a partial ocean view. At Maui Kai, you are literally steps away from the ocean, so you have a full 180 degrees, unobstructed view. We couldn't get enough of the view, from early morning to gorgeous sunset. The two attached units are very convenient if you have two families. One unit is a studio with full kitchen, bath, queen bed and a pull out sofa. The other unit is a one-bedroom corner unit with full kitchen and pull out sofa. They are connected by a lockable door. Both units are nicely decorated, with comfortable beds and furniture. The kitchen is fully stocked with modern amenities to allow you to cook meals at home. Very quiet, A/C works well, good water pressure. Beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas and boogie boards are there for you to borrow. There are laundry facilities on the floors above and below. Plenty of off-street parking, but the pool, BBQ area and club house is pretty basic. Very convenient location, close to some nice beaches and far enough from Lahaina traffic. Overall, I would absolutely love to go back to stay at these units again. We love them!

The owner of this unit is really easy to work with. She is very responsive and helpful. She gave us her Local Girl's Guide to Maui to take with us to Maui. Lots of helpful tips, we followed her advice on beaches, restaurants, markets. Proof that you don't have to spend a lot of money in order for good entertainment, eat well, and eat like the locals!

Love the Maui Kai!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time that my husband and I have stayed at the Maui Kai. It doesn't get more oceanfront than this. The condo is comfortable and well stocked. The complex has a nice community area with pool, spa, BBQ, ping pong, library, etc. Its also centrally located within easy walking distance of a good grocery store and several restaurants.

This is the second time we booked thru Donna Bender and we highly recommend her. She'll send you her awesome Local Girl's Guide to Maui and will hook you up with a tour outfit that offers discounts on all types of activities and car rental. Awesome!

Maui Kai love

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at the Maui Kai on two separate occasions, reaching back out to the owners of this unit to help us book our return stay in their unit. They have always been quick to respond to our requests, and are gracious to share tidbits about the island and find us the best dinner and activity deals during our stay. If you're looking for a spectacular view, great staff, quiet pool and an incredible Maui experience, you can't miss with the Maui Kai and this studio unit!
