About the property

1 bed, 2 bath on the beach, whale watch from our lanai, air conditioned comfort

Vacations are about choice, and if you choose quiet comfort, a beautiful ocean front setting with an expansive soft sand beach meeting gentle warm waters look no farther. You come to Hawaii to enjoy the beaches, stay on an excellent one, Sugar Beach. Separated from the crowded city-front beaches our beach offers many miles of soft sand for children to play on, walkers to walk or jog on and strollers to stroll on. Our property enjoys beach front Barbecues with tables and chairs for day and evening enjoyment; nature provides glorious sunset dinners as everyone looks for the 'green flash.' Warm days invite you to choose between reading or napping under the palm trees and umbrellas, taking a dip in the warm ocean or heated pool or walking over to the farmer's market to select fresh island foods. The shave-ice store is also a favorite, this is not your father's snow cone.

Our fully remodeled fifth-floor suite enhances your stay with whisper quiet central air conditioning (yes, in the bedroom too), comfortable living room with two leather recliners, a 37'' flat screen with full HDTV reception with Blue Ray DVD and Bose Sound, a fully equipped granite counter kitchen, a sleep inducing King bed, two step-in tile shower baths (yes, two bath rooms) and a unique dual-pane Lanai slider if you choose to block out the sound of rolling waves. Add ocean and mountain views to your morning coffee, spot whales in season, enjoy a quiet sun-set; all from your private Lanai. If all this sounds enjoyable you will be pleased to discover more. Beach towels, chairs and coolers provided, 32'' full HDTV reception in the bedroom, secure key-less entry with your pre-selected private entry code (all guest codes are removed when guests leave), laundry facilities just steps away, manicured grounds, free parking, free cleaning, free wireless internet and a central island location for activities such as golfing, fine dining, scuba and snorkeling, visits to Lahaina, Kaanapali, Iao Valley, Wailea, Paia, Hana, Haleakaia and more.

We are most comfortable for two in King bed comfort; honeymooners, retired couples and all those seeking quiet.

Contact us today via phone @ 925.787-1115 (California), e-mail us or just pick out open dates and use your credit card to book on-line. We have a 6 night minimum, but no cleaning fee on 7 nights plus and discounts for extended stays in low season.

About Donald Rankin

My wife, Linda, and I have traveled the world, and continue to do so, the photo was taken near the entrance to Monet Gardens in France, just outside of Paris. We discovered our Maui Sugar Beach location on one of our travels and fell in love with the unique property, purchasing our unit sight unseen by internet & mail once we returned home. We continue to upgrade our island home and our efforts have resulted in a 'Deluxe' rating and one of the highest booking calendars of the Nani Kai Hale! We know Maui!

Donald Rankin purchased this condo in 1999

Why Donald Rankin chose South Maui

After attending several 'wine & cheese' time share presentations for properties that were 'near the beach' we discovered our 'right on the beach' property with permanent owners and fell in love with the warm sharing and gatherings that occur daily around the beachfront barbeque area. With six miles of soft sand beach to stroll along with lawn & fresh water pool there is much to enjoy! The 'Nani' experience is truely unique.

What makes this condo unique

With only 46 units our property enjoys a special 'bonding' of guests & owners alike, some guests have been returning for 20 to 30 years because they feel 'at home' when they gather around the lawn and barbeque area for the many spontaneous sharings of food and stories daily. The protected cove provides a safe water and beach environment that is a magnet for children of all ages, our central Maui location is the perfect jumping off spot!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sadly our vacation is over. Would like to stay longer, but must get back to work so we can come again. Had a great time. Thanks for the lovely place to stay. The coolers were great when we went to Hana. We couldn't have ask for anything else. We will be back."

A very comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We found this condo had everything we needed and more. Everything in the condo was clean and well organized. We felt welcome and cared about from our first contact with Donald until we left. With the beach so close it was easy to come and go for a walk or a swim. We would surely choose this condo again.

Our property fronts right on one of the best beaches of Maui, swimmers and walkers alike enjoy it everyday. Mahalo Margaret for your observations and comments, please do come back soon.

Beautiful location; very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The condo was clean, nicely decorated & well-stocked with everything you could ever need. The grounds/pool were cleaned daily & always looked beautiful. When we were there in the fall, the complex was not busy so we often had the beach to ourselves. We enjoyed our daily coffee & evening wine on the lanai, with the winds keeping it relatively cool. Donald was very responsive prior to our visit, then checked in with us upon arrival & just prior to departure. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We could not be more pleased that you found our Maui home to your liking. Yes the property itself is well maintained by a resident manager, and yes we strive to keep our personal portion of it updated, clean and well stocked. Little things like salt, pepper and other condiments are on hand, cold bottled water and a package of coffee greets you, and the lanai for coffee, sunshine, reading, evening cocktails along with ocean views (whales is season). That air conditioning, including the bedroom with King bed, is a treat when the temperatures get up and it is often tough to choose between the 80 F pool or the 80 F ocean on our gentle beach. We hope you enjoyed the beach front barbecues and the palm and umbrella covered beach front lawn. Do come again. Mahalo for your kind words.

Excellent accomodation

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful property in excellent condition and well maintained and well situated on a tremendous beach. The property fulfilled our expectation of amenities, was very comfortable, there were no surprises and it was as advertised and as we expected upon our arrival. The Owners were incredibly helpful providing a wealth of knowledge of the property and island amenities with many very helpful hints on activities and must do's. I will most certainly stay here again when I visit Maui next time and will be sure to recommend this to my friends and family when they travel here. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Kihei High

  • 5 of 5

The very best location, beach is superb, the view from the lovely unit of the ocean and mountains was a delight. The owner was great to work with and provided us with great information on places to visit, eat at, and points of interest on the island . The grounds were well maintained and our unit was very clean, nicely updated, and we were provided with all the necessary things needed for a wonderful beach vacation. We definitely plan to book this unit for our next vacation. Love, love, love, this beach!

Owner's Response: Aloha Olita and Mahalo for your great review, I must confess I am torn between telling everyone about our great beach and keeping the news quiet to maintain the uncrowded condition. But I do want everyone to know about our Maui property and our comfortable unit that sits right on that quiet stretch of beach, so thank you for letting all know of our efforts to make every vacation with us enjoyable and comfortable. We look forward to your return.

Great location and value

  • 5 of 5

Nani Kai Hale is perfectly located on the beach at the North end of Kehei so you have easy access to all points on Maui with no need to start in traffic. This rental was exactly as described and has been well cared for by the owner, and you will also be well cared for during your stay. The owner checked in on us after we arrived to make sure everything was ok with the rental and he took care of even the smallest problem during our stay. The next time we are on Maui, this will be our first choice to stay.

And, yes, we look forward to your enjoying our traveler friendly accommodations at a very affordable price on your next trip to Maui. Mahalo for being such a great guest.

Notes:
Quiet relaxation in abundance starts in our air-conditioned accommodations and extends to our relaxing lawn and gentle beach. There is a 'Farmer's Market' within walking distance, but you are away from the hustle and bustle of the busy downtown. Take a long walk on quiet Sugar Beach, swim in the heated pool, or take a nap in a chaise lounge on the lawn. Gas grills, tables and chairs ocean front, palm trees and umbrellas shade you from the sun. The gentle beach leads you into warm (normally 80F) water on most days.
