About Kathy Somerton
This is us enjoying the sunset whale watching cruise on the Kai Kanani, which is known for their Molokini snorkeling, and whale watching tours. They depart three miles down the road from Makena Beach. Our other favorite things to do while on Maui include kayaking, bicycling and golf at the beautiful Wailea courses which are only a few miles from the condo.
Kathy Somerton purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Kathy Somerton chose Kihei
We chose this property because we believe Keawakapu is the best family beach and it is continuously voted as one of the most beautiful beaches as well as the setting for multi million dollar homes down its half mile plus length. And most of all we like the warm sunny weather for which the Kihei/Wailea area is well known.
What makes this Condo unique
The Mana Kai recently underwent a multi - million dollar renovation of the exterior, restaurant, bar, and lobby area, as well as a complete remodeling and expansion of the swimming pool. As of October 2013 we completely rebuilt and customized unit #412. Larry is an award winning California and Hawaii architect and we hired a local interior design firm for purchase of all new contemporary furnishings. All floors were replaced with crema bottocino tile, the kitchen was expanded and top of the line appliances were added including a Sub-Zero refrigerator. All new bathrooms, toilets, showers and tub as well as an upgraded air conditioning system for the entire unit was installed. The front bedroom unit has a King size bed (luxury mattresses utilized by Four Seasons and Grand Wailea Hoolei Resorts) have been selected. The back bedroom has two Extra long twin beds which can be pulled together and utilized as a king as well; and a second full size bathroom.

Would stay there again
All beach all day!
I am really disappointed in the money grubbing behavior of Homeaway. Way to ruin VRBO!
I will definitely rent this condo again and I will not involve homeaway. It’s a fabulous unit on a fabulous beach. It was recently renovated and has everything you need. The condo amenities- pool, restaurant, grocery-rival any hotel. There is quite nice snorkeling right out front. We were three ( me, my mom, and my daughter ) and had plenty of space. It would work for a family of four, but I don’t think it is spacious enough for two couples. We flubbed up the check out - a bit late and discombobulated- and the owner was understanding.
A great vacation spot!
We had a wonderful stay at the Mana Kai. What a special location! Was so much fun to just walk down and be at the pool or on the beach in mere minutes, especially with children! The ocean view from the unit was fantastic and such a treat to wake up to each morning. We also enjoyed the onsite perks of having Zack's deli/ shop and Tracey at the activities desk to book excursions. Only a 5 minute drive from Mana Kai, we eat at several delicious places/ food trucks in Kihei. We will definitely look to return!!
Fantastic views. Condo as shown. Beautiful.
Well run, clean and fun property. Beach location spectacular. Owner very responsive and helpful. Turtle Tracks (local open air golf cart service) is a great way to get around locally, as access to a vehicle is recommended for variety in dining options.
Aloha and Thank you for the great review Francine, we appreciate you making time and sharing information about Turtle Tracks in Kihei Wailea.
They truly provide a new and great service; especially for travelers who want to stay mostly at the beach with access to the grocery store and restaurants, they are great, timely and very reasonably priced. Again thank you and I hope we see you back on Maui!
Amazing location and awesome condo!
4 of us stayed for 5 nights and it was everything we could’ve hoped and more! We have never been to Maui, it is truly paradise and this condo is in the best area on the island. The town of Kihei has charm for days and great coffee shops, restaurants etc. Hearing the waves when you fall asleep and wake up was fantastic! The beach steps from the condo is top notch with great snorkeling and water sport rentals were available at the condo complex.
Kathy was great, she was quick to respond and was very accomadating would absolutely book this condo again!
James - thank you so much! We agree the location is spot on and it is absolutely our granddaughters most favorite beach on all of Maui. Hope we see you back in Paradise soon.
The place was exactly like the pictures. High ended appliances well equipped great beach
The beach was perfect. The pool was warm. Rooms were quiet. Decks are big. Great location. Parking space a little tight. Would go back again
Thank you Anthony and we would welcome you back anytime!
