Feel the Aloha when you stay in at the Kihei Kai Nani. Our unit, #234 is located in sunny South Kihei, just 10 miles from Kahului International Airport, and directly across the street from Kamaole II Beach - easily one of the finest lifeguarded beaches on Maui for swimming, surfing, snorkling and just relaxing! In the evening people come from all the other resorts to watch the most spectacular sunsets and listen to the famous sunset konch shell blower. Awaiting you are lush tropical gardens, Luaus, whale watching, romantic sunsets, swimming, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and kickback relaxing within close proximity to this condo. A bonus at the beach encompasses things like incredible fish and enchanting sea turtles!
Many varieties of birds to excite even the novice birdwatcher! Shopping, golfing, groceries, restaurants are all nearby or within walking distance. Did you know you could rent a Harley or a scooter for those motorcycle buffs so inclined a block away, then go and cruise Maui. A favourite is the 808 Bistro, located next door, where you are able to enjoy high end cuisine and bring your own bottle of wine for those nights you don't want to make a meal.

We live in Vancouver have three kids and have really enjoyed coming to Maui for many years. We decided to buy a condo because we fell in love with Maui and feel this is like a second home. Welcome to our place!
Gary purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Gary chose Kihei
When I first stepped off the plane at Maui Airport, I was quickly captivated by the smell of plumeria, warm tropical breezes and swaying palm trees against the lush green west Maui Mountains. The magic of Maui cast a spell on me and I quickly fell in love with the relaxing island lifestyle. For years we vacationed at Kihei Kai Nani resort and always hated to leave where I felt my heart belonged. I always looked forward to the next trip back.
What makes this Condo unique
The life style and laid back feeling one gets when you arrive in Kihei and the Kihei Kai Nani is unique. In addition, Maui is a tropical paradise that boasts a 10,00 foot mountain as a back drop to white sandy beaches and outer island views. From savory and sophisticated dining, boutique shopping, and an array of services to diverse landscape of gorgeous tropical beaches, jungles, ranch lands and upcountry forests perfect for all types of outdoor activity. Maui has it all. Maui's Art's and Cultural Center offers theatre, film festivals, art and fashion shows, comedy and major concert events. Our condo is close to everything you want to do and awaits to be yours to explore.

We had a great stay at this property. Very nice unit. The beach is literally a 2 min walk across the street (but you don't look out onto it).
It is well stocked with all the things you could need. Kitchen has all the things you need for cooking - pans, utensils, crock pot, etc.
Pull out couch-bed in the living room has been updated since the pictures and is very nice! I also really appreciated that the unit also has a fold-out bed mat to use as an additional bed (our daughters were happy to not have to share space) AND an air mattress (we didn't use that but it was great that it was there). Also plenty of towels for bath and separate ones for beach. Also 2 nice beach chairs, 2 boogie boards and beach toys. My kids were happy!
An item to note - the onsite office to get your parking pass is only open from 9-5 (I think was the timing) with a 12-1 lunch break. You are supposed to check in and get your parking pass. Since check in isn't until 3, we used our first day for exploring and didn't get to get property until 6:15pm. There was no one at the office and no one answering the courtesy phone provided for after-hours. Thankfully there was an employee still in the pool area and offered to help and went and got us a parking pass. We were always out for the day before office opening and not getting back until after so we never actually had a chance to "register".
We loved this unit and probably the only thing I would say to improve it is that the bedroom does NOT have curtains over the large window. It's not a matter of people seeing in (they're a frosted type window) but as soon as it is light in the morning, it is VERY bright in the morning. It would be awesome to put some curtains over the window that can be drawn to the side to enjoy the light once we wanted to! (there are curtains across the sliding glass doors to the balcony!)
The location is excellent for getting to all the different areas of the island and the beaches are great in this area. It's quiet at night and there are a ton of restaurants within walking distance and grocery stores (Safeway, Foodland).
Would definitely recommend staying here and won't hesitate to book again if we're back on Maui.
Wonderful place to stay
The unit was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing stay in Kihei. The location is great with shops and restaurants close by, and just steps to the marvelous beach. We are looking forward to a return visit.
Thanks, for sharing, i can't wait to head back for my vacay.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay.
It was in a great location and a very quick walk to the beach. There's some great shops and dining places close as well. My husband and I are a younger couple so we would jump on the bus and head down the shore a couple miles for happy hour. They call that area "the triangle" it's by Foodland. Lots of dining options that way as well!
Overall we would definitely go back! Everything was updated and very welcoming.
Great Vacation Rental
We stayed at this condo for a week during spring break. It held 3 of us with no problems with a queen bed and couch pullout. The beach across the street was convenient and nice, we were there every day. The condo is well stocked with everything you'd need at the beach including an umbrella, beach blankets, towels, a cooler, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, and toys. Plenty of good restaurants nearby as well. I recommend the deli right next to the parking lot and Coconuts. We would definitely stay here again.
This condo was perfect for our honeymoon! Very nice and close to everything we needed. AC worked amazing and was well stocked with items for the beach! We even snuck in a little time to watch TV. Would recommend staying here 10/10! Thank you.
Cancelled due to tropical storm Darby
Unfortunately I had to cancel my family's vacation in Hawaii one day before our flight after receiving flight warnings and the tropical storm Darby's forecasts. Luckily I only booked this condo for 3 nights . The damage deposit has been returned. And I am trying to get the cleaning fee back because no cleaning was needed since my family did not even stay in the condo. Today VRBO remindered me that time is running out for leaving a review. I'll update later. The location, affordability, cleanliness, ac, up to date remodeling... were the reasons I pick this condo. But the weather did not cooperate. Just Make sure you pay more attention to the cancellation policy in hurricane and tropical storm seasons.
Sherry from texas
Our condo is located in south Kihei, a stones throw from Wailea, located in South Maui and is home to many activities like surfing, swimming, snorkling, diving, paddleboarding, skim boarding, sand castle building or just relaxing. The beach is just 40 yards from our condo and accessses the pristine and popular Kamaole I & II Beaches Area. Another favourite that is very close by is the Sanctuary Education Center (Whale Watch Center) where the majestic humpback whales can be observed regularly. This is a must see for everyone. Bird watchers and nature lovers will also find something to enjoy. At the north end of Kihei is the national Wildlife Conservation District, Kelia Pond, where endangered Hawaiian stilts and coots thrive in a salt-water marsh that is easily visible from the road. Nearby, the harbor at Malaea is the launching site for an armada of pleasure boats taking visitors on charter fishing excursions, whale watching expeditions and snorkel trips to Molokini. There is a excellent public golf course in Kihei, as well as world class resort golf courses nearby in Wailea and Makena. My favourite couse is the Makena Golf course as it is reasonably priced and has excellent facilities. Further, there are many fabulous local restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and local shops within walking distance. If you chose to rent a car Lahina, Kaanapolli and yes folks the 'Road to Hana' are treks worth taking. Transient Acc. Tax/ GET # W60179216-01
