We were thrilled with the location of our A8 Unit and would not hesitate to stay there again. The Unit itself fit the needs for the 2 of us very well. We enjoyed the quietness of the location and the proximity to the beach! The grounds were very well kept and the onsite managers were very easy to find and get along with! Perhaps new lanai furniture could be looked at.
The unit was well maintained and we found all we needed to enjoy our week long stay. The proximity to the beach park next door was not an issue. Being close to Lahaina and Kihei allowed us easy access to either when we wished to visit a different location. Easy access from the airport as well!
Would definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend Makani A Kai to others!

This location was very clean with all the amenities of home without the resort fees. The Maalaea beach front was wonderful with morning and evening walks.
The space and kitchen was like being at home. There have all the beach and hiking toys available for use.
We didn't use the pool or BBQ but it looked clean and simple to operate with lawn chairs to enjoy while relaxing or taking a tan.
2 am arrival and parking was a breeze.
We will definitely stay here again!
This one bedroom unit sits in a quiet condo complex with easy access to the beach. Our 1st afternoon we snorkeled from our beachfront. We were greeted by several sea turtles as well as plenty of fish! Great way to start the vacation. The following morning we could see whales from the beach by the condo The condo was well equipped with beach toys (boogy boards, towels, etc) as well as kitchen amenities. If you prefer to be a bit of the beaten path and are not impressed by the overpriced hotel seen, you will be comfortable at the Makani A Kai. If you want to dine out, we were very impressed with Star Noodle in Lahaina, Mala Ocean Grill in Lahaina and Pita Paradise in Kihei. If you need catering, Three's was absolutely awesome!
great location, clean apartment and very well equipped. I don't usually write reviews, but in this case I think it is fair recognize the good things.
If you want to be away from crowds and traffic - this is a great place to stay on Maui. It's strategically located in the middle of the island - so a great jumping off point for sightseeing in any direction.
Quiet beach aside from mainly locals - we often had the beach to ourselves in the late evening!
LOTS of turtles swimming just off shore. Bring a stocked cooler and sit back on the beach and watch em.
We enjoyed the pool - nice for cooling off w/o having to be too far away from the beach.
Facilities are well-kept (i.e. laundry, landscaping, BBQ area, etc.).
Miles of shoreline to explore - you can walk all the way to Sugar Beach!
Not for those that prefer to be within walking distance of a lot of shopping and dining options.
Noisy AC unit from the unit next door - kind of annoying when trying to relax on the lanai in the evening.
Can't see sunset on the water due to the mountain to the west of the unit.
Not the best beach for snorkeling (water tends to be a bit too cloudy).
No oven in the unit - not a big deal for us, but something you should be aware of.
If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of places like Kaanapali, Lahaina, or Kihei and enjoy uncrowded beaches with plenty of turtles to watch within walking distance of your back patio - this is a great choice!!!
We would definitely come back.
The property supplies the place with enough toilet paper, towels, kitchen soap, trash bags and dishwasher soap for about a little over a week based on two people. Laundry facilities is on site, 1.50 wash, .25 dry. A pool,2 BBQs, free WiFi are also available. It was a pleasant surprise to have two boogie boards, snorkel gear and lawn chairs in the room for use. This room is just a small walk around to the beach entrance. You can't actually see the beach if you were sitting down on the couch but you can hear the waves crashing. It is also right on the side of a beach access where a few of the locals come to camp, play in the water and BBQ. There are tons of turtles that come out just before the sun goes down. You'll see them get picked up by the waves and just hanging out feeding on the coral below. It's a cool place to snorkel. There's a bunch of fish to see as well as the chance to see some of these tuetles that hangout here. It's a great spot to boogie board, or just sit on the lawn chairs and take in the sun! There's not a lot of people so it's really quiet, and it's conveniently located. 20 minutes from walmart or Costco and Kihei, 5 minutes to the Harbor. It's just a great place and we plan to go back!
