About the property

Modern 2 bd/2 ba with ocean and mountain views with laundry, wifi, amenities!!

Beautiful unit for an ideal vacation. This home is a top floor unit with great views, updated appliances, beautiful design and comfortable living. We have a terrific ocean view which you will be able to enjoy from the kitchen, living room and lanai. This home away from home has all the key amenities: laundry, wifi, smart hdtv, etc.

The lanai is perfect for enjoying a dinner with the sunset as your backdrop. The master bedroom has a new queen bed with full bath and the 2nd bedroom has two new twin beds (that can be made into a king) and a full bath, making it perfect for family stays. There is a living room couch that can accommodate a 5th person as well.

The kitchen is completely new with an open concept, island for eating and meal preparation convenience, new appliances including a french door fridge and double oven range. Large stainless steel sink and beautiful grey granite countertops. Kitchen is well stocked with new dishwater, cookware, kitchen utinsels.

The bedrooms have brand new comfortable beds and bedding with bright island colors, lots of closet and dresser space.

The bathrooms are impeccably done with careera marble floors, glass tiles in both showers (one bath), large mirrors with lots of light. Clean, crisp design that is livable and comfortable for families but also updated.

The outdoor pool and jacuzzi are perfect for winding down and enjoying the sunshine Maui has to offer. There is also an outdoor barbecue area that can accommodate larger groups of folks and is great to just grill up a meal.

This home is also within close distance of nearly everything you would want to enjoy on Maui. While there is a beach at the property, there are other nearby beaches well worth enjoying. Kamaole I, II, and III are all within a 10 minute drive, as is the Kihei Boat Ramp - a literal launching point for most snorkeling and diving trips to Molokini and along the southern shoreline. Great snorkeling is located nearby as well and some of the best kite surfing is just north about 5 minutes on Sugar Beach.

Groceries and restaurants are within a mile or so and there are several beautiful golf courses a short distance away.

About Kris

I am from California but lived full time in Maui about 10 years ago and never wanted to leave. I own my own business and get to Maui as much as possible and hope you enjoy the island as much as I do.

Kris purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kris chose Kihei

This location is ideal for a Maui vacation. You can literally drop your bags and walk out to the beach for a dip in the ocean or relax by the pool. It is convenient to the best beaches on Maui: Keawakapu (my personal favorite), Kam beaches, Ulua reef (great for snorkeling) and also easily accessible to activities in the north as well. You can easily walk to shops with groceries, pizza and other basics. This unit has a terrific ocean view, all the conveniences of a brand new home and is a quiet peaceful retreat.

What makes this condo unique

You will love staying at this property as it offers a top floor view, in-unit laundry, wifi and other conveniences that will make your stay comfortable and relaxing.

Modern, clean and comfortable

We loved our stay at Luana Kai. The condo was updated and clean. We had a nice view of the water. Pool and grounds taken care of very well. We highly recommend Kris' place if you are staying in Kihei. Aloha

Lovely condo, nice property.

  • 4 of 5

Pretty condo is just minutes from lots of fun activities, restaurants and gorgeous beaches. Small, but clean pool and well manicured grounds. The beach is a very short walk from the condo. It has a very gentle surf for the kids but has a lot of coral bits - bring your water shoes. The beach spot here is a nice place to watch the sunset. Overall we had a nice time!

Great condo...but, no air conditioning in summer is tough.

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay in this condo, as it was centrally located to what we wanted to do and within walking distance to a nice beach.

The unit was well stocked and had almost everything we needed. Communication with the owner from the beginning was thorough and prompt- which is always appreciated when you are trying to plan a vacation. Our dates even changed, and she was able to be accommodate the change.

It's tough to complain about anything when you are on vacation in beautiful Maui...but, I think the only thing that we struggled with was the no air conditioning in the unit. The trade winds helped on the nights that they were blowing and the unit had ceiling fans, but it was tough to get comfortable sleeping on nights that it was just so hot & the winds were calm. Many can tolerate it, and our kids didn't seem to mind, so we managed. I know that electricity is pretty expensive on the island, so it's tough to have every need met and keep the price of the units affordable. But- just thought I would let people know-just in case they couldn't tolerate the heat.

We enjoyed our time in Maui and would return and stay in this unit...just not in the heat of the summer.

Owner's Response: I totally understand the hot summers in Kihei. Some of us are fine with tradewinds and fans and others of us truly need the AC. When you are on vacation I get how this could make a difference. I'm looking into it for next summer and will keep this posting updated if it occurs. Yes, more expense might mean a price adjustment especially in the summer when the air conditioning will be used, but it sounds like it will be well worth it. I want people to really enjoy staying here! Stay tuned...

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Luana Kai was amazing. Kris was extremely helpful and prompt with any questions we had. It was the perfect place to stay for our family (myself, husband and baby). Fully stocked with everything we could need (and more!). Walking distance to shopping/food. We have recommended to many friends and are already planning a return trip for ourselves... Couldn't have been better!

Perfect spot, well done and more than I expected.

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed staying here. The place was beautiful with a modern appeal. The kitchen had all the tools you will need for the stay and had new appliances.

The balcony (forget the name in Hawaii) was where we spent most of our time while in the unit. Gorgeous view. Being able to walk directly to the beach was fantastic. The sunsets were perfect on the beach. Turtles were there as well.

Says it sleeps 5 and it will. Queen bed upstairs in the loft was comfy and has its own onsuite. The bedroom downstairs had two single beds. The fifth person would have to sleep on the fold down sofa... better be a kid, that would wreck me lol.

The only down side if there was one was being on the third floor. If you are older it might be tiresome. It was okay for me and my family. Liked the view up there anyway.

The owner and her assistant were pleasant and informative leading up to and after the stay.

I would definitely stay here again.
