About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay4 - 7 nights
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 only)
Premium ocean front condo with the best location (2nd unit from the ocean end), on the best beach, and the best part of Maui -- at the Mana Kai. Located at the north end of Keawakapu Beach, you've got a mile long beach and some of the safest swimming and best snorkeling to enjoy.
We do not add on any additional charges, such as cleaning. Your nightly rate plus the Hawaii state taxes if your full rate.
To keep our unit in the best condition for your stay we are constantly updating. We've renovated the kitchen with bamboo cabinets and granite counter tops. Both baths have been redone also.
Generally the trade winds keep you cool and comfortable, but every room has a ceiling fan and air conditioning. The building has free Wi-Fi for guests and is smoke free. There is a reserved parking spot for you and a laundry room at the elevators in the center of the building. Gas BBQ grills are available on the lawn.
The only thing between my unit and the ocean is the pool and grassy lawn for lounging. Being second from the ocean end of the building our unit is very quiet, the waves tranquilize you to sleep every evening in our king size beds,. Both bedrooms have unobstructed views of the ocean so that you can always enjoy the view. Because of the floor plan of the unit, it may be rented in 3 different ways - as a 2 bed/2 bath full condo, as a 1 bed/1 bath full condo, or as a hotel room with just a bedroom and a bath.
The building is small enough to have a warm friendly feel but large enough to offer some great amenities such as a general store & deli,surf shop & rentals, yoga studio, a superior restaurant(the 5 Palms), a business center, gym, and an activities center to help with any bookings you may need. Located just blocks north of Wailea, you have easy access to many golf courses, the Shops at Wailea, and all that south Maui has to offer.

About Patty Cowles
A friend told our parents about the Mana Kai back in 1987 when I was just an infant. They had always stayed on the north end of the island for many years prior and when they heard of the dryer weather, less traffic, and the friendlier more convenient environment, they had to try the Mana Kai. After one stay, they were sold! We rented units for many years until the time came that they could purchase their own little piece of paradise. We have been very fortunate to spend our spring breaks on the beach every year and our family memories of the MKM are the best! Now my brother and I have been blessed to take over ownership. Coming from Montana we keep our unit tropical in color and design. We want to feel like we are in paradise when we walk in the door.
Patty Cowles purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Patty Cowles chose Kihei
The Mana Kai is so easy & convenient, especially if h traveling with your family. You can sit on the lawn, watch one in the ocean and one in the pool at the same time. Whenever you need something, the condo can be reached quickly as well as the deli/general store. This is one of the few places my father truly relaxes. He loves being right on the ocean, listening to the waves and reading under a palm tree. A feel of being totally away, but right in the US so the office is a phone call away.
What makes this Condo unique
Everything is right there - a true place to rest and relax as much or as little as you want. The island is full of activities and places to see.

My family of 4 stayed here for 4 days and loved it!!! The beach is fabulous. Perfect for families. My girls snorkeled from the beach and saw lots of turtles. Even when we are in the room we enjoyed the sounds of the ocean. We also watched 2 weddings from our balcony. So beautiful. It’s a very clean unit and well stocked with everything you need except an in-room washer and dryer. We had a reserved parking space which made coming and going easy bc it’s a busy beach. Patty was VERY easy to work with and has it all laid out well.
We enjoyed Mana Kia, the resort, too. We didn’t eat a meal at the 5 Palms but everyone talks about how it’s very overpriced so we went and tried different places for dinner. The folks at the front desk were friendly. The folks renting equipment were nice.
We would definitely rent this unit again. It was a fabulous time on Maui.
So glad you had a great time with your family! I wish I did have a washer & dryer, but that is not allowed in the unit by the HOA. Luckily they are right down the walkway for your use.
Thank you so much Patty for your kindness and most lovely home. It was all to perfection!
Very nice unit
We stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed the unit. It was cleaner than several others we have stayed in and the owners responded very quickly to advise on a battery for the kitchen fan/light remote control.
Thank you for replacing that battery for me! I routinely replace all batteries trying to avoid a guest having something not work properly. I appreciate you contacting me so we could get that worked out. Unless a guest lets an owner know, some times things get missed by housekeeping. We strive to keep our condo the way we want to find it when we use it - clean!
We always stay at the Mana Kai when we're on Maui. We had the whole family with us so we rented two units. This unit was far superior to the other unit we rented (215). The kitchen has been updated and was especially well equipped with lots of extras. There were beach toys in the closet and plenty of towels and linens. We definitely would rent this unit again.
Aloha - So glad your family had such a great time and we were able to share our piece of paradise with you!
