You can't get any closer to the ocean! As you relax on our lanai, it's easy to feel like you're sitting on cruise ship balcony. When whales are migrating, you can spend hours watching the mothers teach their young to slap their tails and fins, or practice a breach, or spy hop. The surfers will amaze you. On windy days the para-sailors, wind-surfers, and kite-boarders are fun to watch. On calm days one of the best snorkeling on the island awaits you out front of our units. There is nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of the surf and sea-side living.

As you enter our home you will be amazed by open feel and panoramic ocean view. Our home is filled with Hawaiian decor, turtle art, and the feeling of a tropical home. Open the double sliding-glass doors to let in a warm tropical breeze or turn on the quiet central air-conditioning when the weather gets warm. For us, this is not just another condo. This is our home-away-from-home, we take excellent care of it, and we welcome you to share it with us.

We have all the comforts of a permanent home. Our kitchen is working kitchen. We have high-speed internet,Bluray DVD Player, DVR, games, and books... Our sofas are punees (convert to twin beds). They are incredibly comfortable, unlike a hide-a-bed. All our beds have new Tempur-pedic mattresses for added comfort.

It's our belief that when guest rent our condo they are looking for a fun and relaxing vacation. Another important assumption is that they want the best value for there dollar. That is why we keep our rates as low as possible, and offer the maximum amount of services. Based on comments from past guest we only charge for check out cleaning, rather than daily maid service. We still stock the condo with all supplies needed for there stay (towels, linens, paper products, shampoo, soaps, lotion, ect.) We still have daily, bi-weekly, or weekly maid service available should a guest request. We don't want anyone to fell obligated to straighten up the condo because a maid might come knocking on the door.

Stores, restaurants, and beaches are within walking-distance. There is a great new walking-path to Black Rock which makes for a great morning exercise along the beach without the sand.

This is the place to book to begin a trip you will treasure always and long to return to.

About Janet or John Goggins

We are John and Janet Goggins. We Were married in 1973 and we have been blessed with both a son and daughter. Our daughter has given us two beautiful granddaughters. Our son and his wonderful wife added three more beautiful grand daughters and one handsome grand son to our happy family so we are proud grandparents of six. Family is top priority to us and Maui Kai is a place we share often with them. We started our first Subway sandwich store 1986. We have enjoyed developing a number of shops. As we have semi-retired, our children stepped up and now they run our stores in Oregon. This gives us more time to travel. We loved our first two-week time share on Maui, but it was never enough. So we decided we needed a permanent home here. The minute we visited Maui Kai we knew we found it. It was love at first sight! We love to watch the whales, snorkel with the turtles, mingle by the pool, shop in Lahaina, try new restaurants, and catch the Saturday market. We have one the friendliest poolsides in town. (swim, Jacuzzi, bar-b-que and bask in the sun)

Janet or John Goggins purchased this condo in 2001

Why Janet or John Goggins chose West Maui

We bought at Mau Kai because of its location, but it was more than that. It was smaller, laid- back, and close to everything. It has a friendly family feel. The rooms are open and the view... well there is nothing like it. Maui is the place to find peace and quiet, to share joys, to get away from the stress of work, to forget your cares, and to make new memories. Maui Kai and specifically our unit gives us these things and more.

What makes this condo unique

As you walk into our unit, you will be immediately drawn to the lanai where you will be in awe of the breath-taking view of both the ocean and two beautiful neighboring islands. You will not want to miss being ready for the nightly sunsets as they are some of the most spectacular in the world. Once you pull yourself away from the view, you will begin to appreciate the spacious floor plan. The table on the lanai allows for dining while you look for migrating whales or pods of frolicking dolphins (three varieties in the area). Everything is spacious and comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi John,

I wanted to send you a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your condo. It was everything we had hoped for. We especially liked it not being a resort. The parking was so close and there were times when we were the only ones at the pool. We ran most mornings on the boardwalk and especially liked the convenience of Times Market and Dukes.

The lanai was amazing. Every minute that we spent in the condo was on the lanai. It was glorious. Same beautiful rainbows everyday but one.

We donated some sunscreen and a good pair of snorkeling fins to the collection. It was a size that you did not have and they didn't fit Steve as they had in the past so we thought someone could use them. Hope you don't mind. We kept the place very tidy as we would our own home, but we forgot to take out the trash before we left. We always removed our sandals before coming onto the carpeting, but it's amazing how much sand gets tracked in. The vacuum worked great.

Thank you again and we hope to return next year.

Kindest regards,
May 2016

Great condo, remodel is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I think we were the first to stay after the remodel was complete. It was gorgeous! Condo is in a great location, you can't beat how close you are the ocean. We loved opening up the massive lanai doors and hearing the waves crash non stop. WiFi, excellent cable TV, tons of games for our son, he loved it!

The condo is so well equipped..beautiful new appliances, granite counters, a nice new tiled shower. Small, but very functional bathroom. We had everything extra we needed - beach towels, boogie boards, snorkel equipment...we used it all, thank you!!!

DO NOT spend excess money dining out! Stop at WalMart, Costco, or a nearby grocery and get supplies for at least breakfast and lunch and save a TON. It is not cheap to eat here, and we are cheap eaters. Besides, you'll want to dine here as much as possible!!

Condo is in a great location in the building. You are right across the hall from the laundry, recycle and sinks which was great after a long day. The pool and facilities are great. There are bbq's, tables and a full kitchen by the pool, hang out there and make some meals!

The direct front beach is not swimmable, however just to the right of the building is a nice swimmable beach. You don't need to go far at all!

We loved being away from the hustle and bustle. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful place with us, we hope to be back!

Incredible Place of Rest!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Maui Kai (Feb 6 to 14, 2015). We had breakfast every morning listening to the ocean and watching the whales from the lanai. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and enjoy Maui. The condo is supplied with everything you would need to go to the beach and relax as well. Thanks for providing such a great home base to explore the islands!

Nice Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation (6-15-14 thru 6-22-14) in condo 204. Dealing with the owners from start to finish was a pleasure and we found the condo the be clean, nice and well appointed. Everything was as advertised. Now for the best part THE VIEW!!!! was amazing and the sunsets, oh the sunsets. The Maui Kai is a nice vacation spot to relax. You don't have the crowded feel of a large resort but more like home. The grounds are well maintained and the staff was friendly. You are close to activities and still are able to relax when needed. We will be returning.

Perfect Location, Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything my husband and I could have wanted for our honeymoon. The view was spectacular, the furniture was comfortable, the unit was clean, the kitchen items were practical, and the A/C worked perfectly (which was important for two Alaskans). This condo is so comfortable and has a homey feel. My husband is an early riser, so every morning he would open the linai doors so that I would wake up to the sound of the ocean crashing right below the window. The bed and couch are very comfortable. The location of this condo couldn't be better. You can walk right from the condo lobby into the ocean. Snorkeling out front was good, but there are many great locations only a ten minute drive from the condo. Front street and all the Lahaina attractions are only minutes away. There is a grocery story within walking distance and a beach side bar at the resort next door. Working with the owner of this wonderful unit was a pleasure and before arriving we already felt very confident we chose the right unit for our first trip to Hawaii. You can't go wrong with this unit!

Love-love-love Maui Kai!

  • 5 of 5

Our family still dreams about our visit to the Maui Kai in June 2010. One of the major plus' about this unit is its location to the ocean. I felt like I was on a cruise ship sitting on the lanai! We loved watching the turtles while we ate our meals. My son and daughter still talk about how cozy they slept in the punees. It was perfect for two kids (12 and 15) who don't like to sleep with one another. The tempurapedic beds are what set this condo apart from all of the others for us since that is what we sleep on at home. We loved being on the 2nd floor and having the choice of running down only one flight of stairs (elevator is kind of slow). We rarely saw any other guests so we felt like we nearly had the place to ourselves. Our daughter who needed a little more action at times used the pool at the resort next door once or twice. It had lots of action and loud music by the poolside too! We prepared most of our meals in the condo, but had dessert "Hula Pie" at Dukes just down the beach several times. (It is a don't miss!) The grocery store was very convenient and only a short walk or drive from the condo. The condo had everything we needed. We used the small ice chest provided to pack sandwiches for our day trips. We even left our boogie boards we purchased to share with other guests. We enjoyed the path that goes along Kaanapali beach several times in the morning and evening. We loved the ping pong table and even came home and got our own. My son and husband enjoyed Kaanapali's golf course several times during the week giving my son a very reasonable junior rate. The owner John was extremely helpful and great to work with. I followed his advice and got the book "Maui Revealed" which was extremely helpful. To sum it up, we are big fans and would not travel to Maui and stay anywhere else. Thank you, John and Janet, for sharing this condo with us! Over a year later I am still feeling like it is also my home away from home!
