About the property

THE BEST CONDO in THE BEST COMPLEX! Full Remodel + New Powerful A/C

THE Ideal location for Wedding Couples, Honeymooners or your Anniversary getaway - whether it's your first or your 50th!

This newly renovated, very romantic, direct oceanfront is the most sought after unit in the entire complex! Including a brand new high powered split system A/C in the living areas and bedroom - each with separate controls.

Please scroll through all of the information and photos below. Call or email us any time if you still have questions.

This location on the southwest corner means the additional windows allow the best cross ventilation from the trade winds and the widest panoramic views of the ocean, sunset and West Maui Mountains possible.

The exquisite multi-slide glass doors allow you to open up the living area completely bringing the outdoors in with no ugly screens to obstruct the spectacular view - check the photos! It's like living right on the beach.

This is truly the best 1 bedroom unit in the best complex in Kihei. The property boasts unobstructed views of several islands and sunsets year-round. It is ideal for watching whales, sea turtles, surfers, windsurfers & kite surfing.

Wake up to a stunning panorama with views of Maalaea Bay, Molokini, Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai islands as well as the West Maui Mountain Range.

Stroll along a section of Maui's longest beach located directly in front of your vacation home. Watch the spectacular sunrises over Mt. Haleakala and brilliant sunsets over the blue pacific ocean, only two of the special moments that will make your visit a most wonderful and lasting memory.

Close to 'Downtown Kihei' with shops, restaurants, banks, gyms, doctors and more. The entire complex is a 'Non-Smoking Property'!

We just installed a brand new high powered split air conditioning system for our guests that may need more than trade winds to cool off. The bedroom and living areas can operate independently.

About Jim and Victoria

Jim grew up on the Big Island (Hawaii) and has lived on Maui for about 25 years. Victoria grew up in Santa Cruz, California and has also lived on Maui for about 25 years. We have owned and operated rental properties here in Hawaii for about 35 years so we know how to do it right. We take pride in the quality of our properties and the personal service we give. We feel blessed and lucky to be a small part of some very memorable experiences for our visitors. Besides always upgrading the property we have hired a full time management company to assure our guests can always reach someone if they have a need.

Why Jim and Victoria chose South Maui

Having lived on Maui for roughly 25 years we could have bought anywhere on the island. But after looking at every direct oceanfront building, we had interest in only a couple and chose this one for it's location, amenities and management. It was a long wait before one of the direct ocean facing units we wanted finally became available. This is one of the smaller low rise complexes which gives it more of an intimate feeling and less of a 'hotel' vibe. With the magnificent lawn leading to the beach we are assured an unobstructed view of the ocean, sunsets and smaller outer islands. It's location in central Kihei means it has easy access to anywhere on Maui and of course anywhere in Kihei itself. We're confident you will love it as much as we do. And based on the large number of return guests we get it's pretty obvious we made a good decision in waiting for this place to become available. Have a look at our calendar and you'll notice we're very booked up nearly a year out - mostly return visitors.

What makes this condo unique

Everyone loves the romantic and peaceful setting of this property. The beautiful lawn and stretch of beach it leads to are both very quiet and only lightly used. The grounds gardens are meticulous adding to the feeling of serenity. This property is one of the only places in all of Hawaii with such a set up. If you are a non smoker you'll love the fact that the entire property is non smoking (except a couple designated ares in the parking lot)- another rarity in Maui and Hawaii. Even the pool, jacuzzi, saunas, putting green and tennis courts are lightly used. Most of the other complexes do not offer all of these amenities. We also offer use of the use of racquets, clubs, beach towels, concierge service, use of computer & printer and more - all free of charge. Unlike most other properties, this place has tons of parking. And you will always be able to get a spot only a short walk to your front door. You simply will not find all of these options available any where else. And so many other unique features that will make your stay with us on Maui a memorable one.

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend! The first thing here is the view!! Wow, that view!! I think the condo looks better than pictured. The kitchen is adorable, the tile work throughout (except for bedroom), that even extends to Lanai, really opens things up and gives such a light and airy feeling. The lighting is so nice - we loved using the under cabinet kitchen lighting when we sat outside at night (which was every night!) so that it added nicely to the ambiance and didn't compete with star gazing and such. The bathroom was such a nice size and was decorated like the kitchen and had great lighting, too. Being that it was an end unit really made this condo! It has lots of windows with plantation shutters that when opened, reveal gorgeous Hawaiian foliage that is just wonderful! We aren't pool people but we loved being next to it, and the tiki torches that were lit by the pool each night were so lovely! We found the complex to be quiet with just some fun happenings at the pool, which we enjoyed hearing. This was such a great value, you can't go wrong staying here. Jim and Victoria are very accommodating and easy to work with, great people!

Owner's Response: Thank you Wendell & Becca for the stellar 5 star review! We're truly honored you chose to celebrate your Birthday and 20th Wedding Anniversary at our place. And more importantly that you had such a terrific and memorable time. We're really glad you liked all the remodel touches - it cost a small fortune. We live on Maui and looked for years for the perfect place and this unique location was it. As you pointed out, because this is a corner unit we get twice the views and breezes as the other units. The tropical Hawaiian foliage and peaceful & private ambiance here really set this place apart from others. It's nice to know you enjoyed the meticulous gardens and tiki torches that light up each night around the pool and hot tub area. These are just a couple of the details that help to create an even more relaxing and special experience for so many of our guests. Chico, California is relatively close to Maui so we expect to see you back soon. Until then, Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Maui is beautiful💜💜💜

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the use of your condo! It was well maintained, clean and exactly how it is pictured! The grounds were older, but very well taken care of and the pool was wonderful! If you provided a few beach towels to use, it would have been most helpful. We ended up purchasing some lovely ones at Costco for a reasonable price. But...had a very challenging time fitting them in our suitcase to get home....we hope to come to Maui again, and would love to stay in your condo if we do!

Owner's Response: Aloha Susan! Thank you for the 5 star review, we appreciate it. It means a lot to us for you to say, "we hope to come to Maui again, and would love to stay in your condo if we do!" That means you had a great time! The fact that you found our place "exactly how it is pictured!" is a good thing for other travelers to know so thank you for mentioning that. When you return next year remember to ask the front desk for more beach towels if ours don't find their way back home. Thank you for visiting Maui from Ridgefield, Washington and we will be waiting for your return with Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Great Location and Fabulous Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very positive experience renting this property, from beginning to end. We've rented many VRBO properties and some owners take your money at the time of reservation and you never really hear from them again. The owners of this property are super friendly, professional and accessible. They really care that you have a great time at their condo. The location in Kihei is perfect because you are relatively close to everything on the island --Kaanapali & Lahaina to the north and Wailea to the south with lots of beautiful beaches in between. We never had any traffic problems being so centrally located. The condo is in a quiet resort property, next to the swimming pool and tennis courts a few yards away. The cute, updated kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals while looking out at the ocean. Best of all, is the unobstructed view of the ocean with fabulous sunsets every night. We were grateful for the (very nice) beach chairs & umbrella available which we used almost every day. The perfect size for two people, it's a really great value for ocean front in Maui. We highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Aloha Jan and Ed! Thank you for taking your valuable time following your return home to Traverse City, Michigan to leave such wonderful feedback for us and our future visitors. Like you, so many of our guests love the central location and the quiet and private feeling of this resort. It's so nice to know you made use of some of the extras we like to supply in our large "Beach Bin". We are nearly fully booked for the next 12 months so if you're thinking of returning be sure to let us know as soon as you decide. Until then, Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Beautiful place with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is is beautifully updated and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Although we didn't do much cooking in the four days we were there, the kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes, pans, spices, and misc things you would need. We did take advantage of the beach chairs and umbrella in the very well stocked beach toy bin. The location was very convenient to get to Maalaea harbor to catch a boat for snorkeling and whale watching. There was also a audio tour CD for the road to Hana in the condo which we found very interesting on our drive to Hana. There is a binder in the condo that has a ton of information and menus of nearby restaurants as well. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy everything Kihei and Maui have offer, but that just means we'll have to make it back someday for everything we missed!

Owner's Response: Aloha Shane! We're really honored you chose our place as your home-away-from-home for your wife's birthday celebration. It's so nice you made use of our rather extensive binder of info because it took a great deal of time and effort to compile it so we're always delighted whenever we hear it was appreciated. It's nice to know that you "Wish we could have stayed longer" because that means you loved our place! Hopefully you'll find your way back from Phoenix, Arizona very soon. We would love to have the opportunity to share our place with you again. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

A light and cheery condo from which to explore the beautiful Valley Isle!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent last week (February 25-March 4, 2017) at this Luana Kai condo and found it very comfortable and convenient for our excursions throughout Maui. Unlike many vacationers who enjoy sunbathing and more sedentary activities, we are explorers. Rental priorities for us are (in this order): A great bed, a great shower and a fully functioning kitchen. This condo has all three. Owners, Jim and Victoria, were very attentive to our satisfaction with their property. One of the nicest things about exploring the Hawaiian Islands is their size. Just about anywhere you want to go is a half-day trip, start to finish. From here, we ventured on separate days to; Kapalua, the infamous "Road to Hana," Wailea and Makena and the upcountry to the Maui Vineyard at Ulupalakua and the Kula Lodge. This property always provided a light, airy "Welcome Home" after our ventures out. We also enjoyed walks on the beach and jaw-dropping sunsets. We were very pleased and know you will be, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you Roger and Marilyn for traveling from Grand Ledge, Michigan to celebrate your landmark 25th wedding anniversary at our romantic direct oceanfront place on Maui. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences with others. Like you, so many of our guests find the central location to be super convenient when exploring the island. It save an incredible amount of valuable vacation time. We love love love that this felt like home to you because that is one of the major goal we try hard to achieve for our guests. Hopefully you'll find yourselves celebrating on Maui again in the not too distant future. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Luana Kai. Only minor concern was the TV was too old to accommodate an HDMI hookup from our laptop. Easily remedied with an upgraded TV.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming all the way from Canada and choosing Maui as your vacation destination. Too bad you didn't let us know about your need for hdmi for your movies because we have an extra 'smart' tv and could have hooked it up for you. In addition we have a large selection of movies there with DVD - not sure you noticed or used them. In any event it's good to know that was the only thing lacking for you during your time here and we're really happy that you "really enjoyed our stay" and hope to have you back on Maui again. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria
