About Liz O'Scanlon
John and Betty Champion are original owners in this magnificent PRIME '01' END UNIT in the Mana Kai Maui Resort.
Liz O'Scanlon purchased this Studio in 1973
Why Liz O'Scanlon chose Kihei
No Ka Oi! There is none better. The MKM is located on one of the most outstanding beaches in all of the Hawaiian Islands. Incredible snorkeling, mile long beach walk, pool, palms, award winning restaurant, sushi bar with 2 happy hours per day, a gourmet deli and general store, activities center, and equipment rental all on the ground floor.
What makes this Studio unique
Peaceful, cool ocean breezes, sun and fun. Must be seen to be believed.

Great view, great weather.
Great view without people passing by the window. Pretty small. But nice to have the little table and chairs. Need to vent the refrigerator, informed the mgt company. It badly needs to be defrosted. Gets over heated in the cabinet, so doesn't stay very cold unless you leave the cabinet door open. My husband owned an appliance store and repair for many years. Maybe why he noticed?
Nice to have some extra kitchen stuff to eat breakfast in.
5 palms very expensive. But normal for Hawaii. Give Coconuts a try if you re not into fancy. Aquarium not worth the price.
Thank you very kindly for your feedback. We strive to attend to every detail and we always appreciate hearing from our guests.
We also love the privacy that our Studio end unit offers. Combined with the unobstructed views towards West Maui and Lahaina, it makes for the perfect setting.
Your suggestion about the small refrigerator is very helpful. We have been able to add vents behind the unit and we have requested both our management company and housekeeping to monitor it for any frost buildup.
At ocean end of the building with a lovely view. I was only on island a couple of days for meetings and this unit was perfect as a single traveler. I felt very safe and secure. Room was very comfortable and had more than I needed. Everyone in the building was very friendly and helpful. I didn't want to cook so I did not require a kitchen. Great appetizers downstairs at happy hour made for a nice dinner and the bartender was actually protective of me. (he said they always keep an eye on single guests -- very thoughtful) The lawn was very relaxing on the lounge chair at the end of the day. Much better than being in an actual hotel while on island.
Affordable and Perfectly Situated
Small but perfectly adequate for a couple who wants to be close to the beach for walking, surf play, snorkling and whale watching (binoculars for good viewing). Watch sunsets right on the lawn. Meet locals using the public walkway and beaches. Sea turtles in spots close to shore! Beautiful spot.
Great location. Condo being a studio did not have much space for personal effects. Enjoyed the accessibility to restaurants and shopping and, of course,the beach location.
Great Location, Good Value
We stayed for 1 week in Feb 2014, and everything worked out very well for my wife and I with this rental. It is a studio, so fairly small, but much cheaper than all the other options right on this wonderful beach, so if you don't need a big condo, this is a great choice.
It is also close enough to the boat launch in kihei that we just walked over to our boat tour one morning.
The cabinets and bathroom were recently redone and everything was quiet nice and good quality materials etc. Really nice to have a good shower to power that salt and sand out of your harir after playing in the waves.
All in all we had a good stay and will look back at this location the next time we want to head to Maui.
The Mana Kai Maui has one of the most magnificent settings on all the islands. You can walk the beach for over a mile. There is an award winning restaurant on the property, a sushi bar with two happy hours each day, and a deli/general store. You can book activities on the site, and snorkel gear and surf board rentals are available. 'NO KA OI' (there is none better)
