During the December to March months you are sure to spot the Humpback whales that migrate 3000 miles from Alaska to the warm Maui waters, known to be the nation's primary mating and birthing grounds for this amazing mammal. Watch them jump and play from the lanai, or close your eyes under the water to hear their songs. Just be careful not to run into a turtle! (It's happened;)

And don't forget your golf clubs, because there are 5 world-class golf courses are just minutes away in Wailea and Makena.

The Mana Kai Maui Resort is located at the extreme south end of Kihei, bordering Wailea. This is a one of a kind property to be found at no other location in all of Maui. In addition, the Mana Kai continues to modernize and improve, keeping it a first rate resort.

About Yasmine

Aloha! My name is Yasmine and my parents own 4 Mana Kai condos that I help rent and manage for them. I live in Washington State where my husband is in law enforcement and we have a few acres for our horses, chickens, and 3 boys to run wild. We've been married 15 years and love to travel, but it's getting harder now with the demands of school, sports, and music lessons. We still try to get to Maui at least twice a year though, with or without the kids!

Yasmine purchased this condo in 2016

Why Yasmine chose Kihei

My parents discovered the Mana Kai when I was young--probably about 7 or 8 years old--and then we became annual visitors, spending every spring break there until I graduated from High School. Then a few years ago, on an anniversary trip, my parents decided to invest in the resort that brought us so many happy memories. My siblings and I would spend hours on this beach, boogie boarding, snorkeling, and playing in the sand. My Dad says there is a sort of 'magic' about this spot. We explored the rest of Maui and the other Hawaiian islands, but always kept coming back here. The combination of the angle of the building, the height of the building, sunny weather, and the family friendly beach makes it a unique spot on Maui. Also, the Mana Kai has become a fabulous resort with wonderful upgrades and amenities.

What makes this condo unique

You just can't beat the view, every time we come it takes our breath away. We also love hearing the crash of the ocean waves, and often sleep with only the screen door shut so we can fall asleep to it. Jason likes to get up early, and every morning I would wake to see him on the lanai, sipping guava juice and watching the ocean. I love that. As a kid, I remember arriving at the Mana Kai and rushing through the lobby and onto the beach before my parents even had the luggage out of the car. Sometimes renters ask me, 'how far do we have to walk to the beach?', and I'm always so glad to answer that question: 'Just through the lobby, past the pool, and you're THERE!'

Awesome beach and ocean

  • 5 of 5

This place has ocean views from all sides. We enjoyed the sound of the surf at night and swimming off the beach each morning. The palm trees along the beach provide wonderful shade. We would love to come back here!

Excellent location can't beat the views, snorkel cove, amazing beach and fantastic property.

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at the Mana Kai but this property in particular was spectacular because of its proximity to the ocean and being on the 8th floor you really get a sense of privacy. You do not hear any of the noise from the beach area. Leaving the windows opens allowed us to fall asleep to the crashing of the waves. The unit is well equipped and had all the amenities we needed. We couldn't figure out the TV which made it even more lovely because it provided us complete isolation from the happenings of the news. I'd return to unit 804 in a heartbeat. Mahalo.

Property was exactly as advertised, maybe even nicer.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous view of the beach and ocean from the room. Restaurant on site was very good and the little convenience store was a wonderful surprise. Nothing like leaving the patio doors slightly open so you can listen to the waves crash all night long.

We would strongly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a great home away from home.
