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.

Everything you need is here!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this very nicely appointed condo. Great location! Clean and comfortable. Great bed. We really enjoyed the beach chairs and umbrella that was in the beach chest on the lanai. The grounds at Luana Kai were very well kept and the office staff was helpful when we needed to check in for our flight home. Highly recommend this property and hope to come and stay here in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Connie and Lars for sharing your experience. We love hearing that you discovered our place to be "Great location! Clean and comfortable. Great bed." We know these are important features when celebrating a landmark Birthday like yours, or any other big event or even just a simple vacation. It's nice to know you made use of a few of the extras we like to offer in our large "Beach Bin". Most importantly we are honored that you liked our place enough to, "Highly recommend this property and hope to come and stay here in the future." We know Yorkville, Illinois isn't just down the street but we sincerely hope you make it back to Maui very soon! Keep an eye on our calendar because we tend to fill up about 9 to 12 months in advance. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

The view was amazing, the condo was super clean, well supplied with everything you would want or need, and beautifully decorated. The grounds are lovely and it is in a great location close to amenities but away from traffic. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: It makes us so happy to know that you will be staying with us again Kendra! That is definitely the highest compliment you could give us and makes us feel as though we're doing our job well. It's so nice that you found our place to be convenient yet quiet and private. We also love that as well as the beautifully manicured tropical grounds and onsite amenities. Safe travels back to Vacaville, California and we will see you soon. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

We love staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you soooo much for sharing your home with us. This is our second time at this Condo and we love it! The views are awesome, the sunsets are gorgeous, and the Condo has everything we needed! We enjoyed having our meals on the lanai everyday. The weather was perfect during our stay. We took long walks along the beach and spent time in the pool and hot tub at night. We loved the time we spent on Maui and this is the perfect place to stay!! Mahalo!!!

Very nice

Unit is very nice and recently remodeled. Has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Within walking distance to local stores for a quick pick up.

Can't beat the beautiful sunsets while sitting on the lanai enjoying a glass of wine.

Owner's Response: Hi Pam. We know you must have been very busy attending and helping with your nephew's wedding here on Maui so we really appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a nice 5 star review. Like you, our family and so many of our guests enjoy the convenient yet super private location of our front-row direct oceanfront condo. The view from the living areas and lanai are second to none. The same view / location in a hotel would start at over $600 - $1,000 a night so we're blessed to be able to offer our place at a small fraction of that price. Next time you visit Maui from Simi Valley, California be sure to check our calendar and stay with us again. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

WHAT AND AMAZING VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for an amazing location to spend some time in Maui, don't look any further than this unit. The view off the lanai is absolutely stunning and so very close to the ocean. The pictures are spot on but when your there in person it's even better. Having breakfast there every morning was the start of the day and evenings ending with a gorgeous sunset closing out the day. You have an abundance of amenities available to you with this unit, a hot tub, swimming pool area with a full kitchen with four or five grills for cooking steaks outdoors right next to the unit, tennis courts, and staff that is available to assist you with any needs or assistance you may need. When the refrigerator broke, it was fixed within hours.

My wife and I were very impressed with how cleanly kept this place was and she especially liked how the kitchen had all of the necessary utensils needed for preparing meals. The unit even had an abundance of spices and oils for cooking. The air conditioning units in the living room and bedroom were serviced while we were there and kept the unit nice and cool when needed. But mostly we just kept the windows open for that nice summer breeze. The owners took the time to email and check in with us to see how things were going while we were there as well.

It was nice having beach equipment like chairs, umbrella, snorkeling equipment, and beach towels all available in the unit, along with small coolers for packing up some cold drinks to take out on the beach.

This is a one bedroom "immaculate" unit but has a pull out bed in the living room. We fortunately traveled without the kids and had a wonderful time. If your looking for a nice stay in Maui you won't be disappointed staying here. If your looking for comfort but not in a big 15 story resort come here, these units are on three levels this one being on the second floor, corner unit, right by the pool, with parking very close for packing and unpacking every day. You will love it.

We usually don't write reviews but this condo deserves every bit of a review. We will definitely return. Thanks again for sharing your perfect little gem!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Andrea and Kevin for visiting Maui from Fircrest, Washington and choosing our front-row direct oceanfront as your home-away-from-home for your 2 week vacation. We're so glad you mentioned, "The pictures are spot on but when your there in person it's even better", because accurate representation is most definitely THE most important issue when searching and booking a vacation online. And it's hard to explain that the photos don't do the view justice. It's so nice you enjoyed the new high powered split system A/C we had installed. We really like that the temperature in the bedroom and living areas can be controlled independently of each other. The fact that you "usually don't write reviews but this condo deserves every bit of a review" really make us feel great - like all of our extra efforts are well worth it. We would love to see you on Maui as soon as you can find your way back! Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as described. The unit is very clean and bright. The bed was very comfortable. The decor is lovely. We used the AC since it was very warm when we were there with no problem getting the unit cooled off.

I could live here!

Owner's Response: Joan we are honored you chose to celebrate your 36th Wedding Anniversary at our front-row direct oceanfront home on Maui. And thank you for mentioning, "This condo is exactly as described." because we believe that is the single most important issue for people when searching the internet for places to stay. We're glad you loved the decor and you were able to make use of our new powerful split system A/C. We like that the bedroom and living areas can be controlled independently of each other. We hope the next time you visit Maui from Beverly, Massachusetts you choose to stay with us again. You will always be welcomed with a spirit of Aloha! Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria
