About the Property
Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 comfortably)
Let your vacation begin as you drive down our beautiful tree lined driveway, away from the crowded condos lining lower Honoapiiliani road. As you drive, open your window and smell the plumerias blooming on the side of the road. As you park, notice the peace and serenity that embodies Maui Kai. As you check in, peek at the beautiful sandy beach just steps from the building and imagine a day of sea and snorkeling. As you open the inner door of our studio condo, take in the breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean before you, and consider that time may just stand still in the presence of such beauty.
And then time does stand still, as you think, darn!! why didn't we stop at The Times market on the way in for a bottle of our favorite bubbly, a view like this needs to be celebrated. So to recap, let your vacation begin when you stop at The Times Market.
There is nothing not to like about unit 106, we have everything to make your stay comfortable and affordable. Our condo has been tastefully furnished in a classy island style. We have plenty of storage so you can put away your things and hide the suitcases, to make you truly feel at home, and forget that one day you will have to leave. We also have a safe, for your peace of mind. The king size bed is close to the lanai doors, so you can hear the waves crashing on the shore, as you fall asleep. Our cozy sitting area inside the unit is great for relaxing, reading or watching a movie from the Maui Kai library; all the while you stay cool in our air conditioned unit. The kitchen is fully equipped with every utensil you could ever need. For the chefs among us there is an oven, for the people who like to make something snappy, a microwave, and for those of us who are domestically challenged, a phone for take out. And for none of the above, there are plenty of restaurants to keep your taste buds challenged.
You will all agree that our studio has the best view for dining in all of Maui. You will have to wait for hours to get a table with the kind of view we can offer from our lanai, morning, noon and night. The light show as the sun sets, is second only to the northern lights. Watch as the sky turns from blue, to orange and fiery red, every night a different, but spectacular show unfolds; just for you. Don't forget your iPod, so you can play your favorite music as the sun dances between the islands of Molokai and Lanai, and then slips below the ocean. After the sun sets, take a moonlight stroll along Kaanapali Beach, and as your toes sink into the golden sand, think how much joy the simplest things can bring, and promise yourself you will return.
It is only fair at this time to spare a thought for those less fortunate and less informed who booked the large resort down the beach to find they have a partial view from the side of the building, or a garden view. We like to call these people the 'if only' people. In closing, I urge you not to become 'if only people' as my husband and I did one year. As we walked past all the condos in Maui Kai, enjoying the beach and the amazing view we said 'if only we had booked Maui Kai'. We guarantee you won't be disappointed.
So to recap, book Maui Kai 106 and let your vacation begin.

About the owner: My name is Mike and my wife's name is Alison. Alison and I live in Southern California. I am an avid surfer and Alison likes to do triathlons, she participates in a number that have ocean swims, so suffice it to say we both love the ocean. Alison and I love to travel to different places. We have visited many beautiful cities in Europe, but we always come back to Maui to relax. We love the simplicity and beauty of Hawaii, the ocean and the stunning sunsets, the peace, and harmony that accompanies every day. We've always wanted to own a place in paradise, and now we do. Maui is the perfect place to relax and play. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do. We think Maui Kai is a fabulous, convenient location to explore the beautiful island of Maui. Please come and discover our dream.
Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
Reviews, location, views, peace and simplicity are the reasons we chose Maui Kai 106. Maui Kai rated as #1 out of 41 other specialty lodging resorts, in west Maui. Maui Revealed rates Maui Kai as 'SOLID GOLD VALUE.' I think what initially attracted us to Maui Kai was it's proximity to the beach and the ocean; our sturdy concrete building is situated parallel to the beach, giving us a 180 degree view of the ocean from the Lanai. When we started looking for a home on Maui we knew we didn't come to Maui to look at a Koi pond, or a garden; we knew we wanted to have a 'full Monty' of ocean and we found that and more at Maui Kai. We find Maui Kai to be a very quiet and relaxing place, discreetly situated away from the main road, so traffic noise is never an issue; allowing us to savor the sound of the waves. We enjoy the fact we are not a 'look at me' big resort, no swim up bar, no room around the pool to run and scream, so we do not attract the party crowds. Watching the whales breech and the whale spouts from the lanai is our favorite past time in whale season. Watching for the cheeky little 'ET' heads of the sea turtles coming into feed in the morning is the best reason to get out of bed. We love drinking our morning coffee on the lanai waiting for the sun to come up, enjoying the almost ethereal beauty of the ocean and the beach bathed in the early morning light. Having dinner on the lanai watching our very own aurora borealis is second to none. Without question we love having Kaanapali beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Maui, on our doorstep. Here we can enjoy easy beach access, easy ocean access, and an easy stroll, power walk, or run, from our condo down the beach to black rock and the delightful Whaler's village. The reasons we chose Maui Kai 106 are the same reasons you will have an unforgettable vacation on Maui. Come and discover for yourself Maui's best kept little secret.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Watching the sunsets will become your favorite pastime. The sound of the waves will become your favorite music. Long walks on a beautiful sandy beach will become your favorite activity. Snorkeling and swimming will become your favorite aerobic sport. Doing nothing at all but enjoying the beauty of Maui, and renewing the relationships with those you share 'the moment with', will become your favorite 'priceless' memory. Come and discover the experience of Maui at Maui Kai 106.
