About Tomoko Takami
Hello. I am Tomoko. I grew up in Japan, and I live in San Francisco Bay Area. I have been renting Royal Mauian condo in South Kihei on VRBO since 2004. We renovated this beachfront Mana Kai condo and are renting it since 2011. I love to travel. I have visited many different places. But, South Maui is my favorite place to be. I think you will soon discover why.
Tomoko Takami purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Tomoko Takami chose Kihei
This condo has a very expansive beach view. It is also very close to the Ocean and a beautiful beach. You can snorkel right next to the condo. This beach is underused and has a relaxing quality to it. For those who want to be at a paradise, this is it.

Great place to stay in Kihei
The property couldn't be in a better location and the furnishings were very comfortable. The owner was very responsive to our messages. I would highly recommend this property.
We had such an amazing time here. It was perfect in every way! Loved the location. The condo has everything you need and the views are stunning! I will be back for sure! Love love this place!
Great Location right on the beach. Not too crowded. Great snorkeling right out front. Great body surfing. Rental shop onsite. Easy access for morning paddle boarding. Amazing views.
Mana Kai always delivers!
Tomoko's unit was very nice and I really appreciated that her assistant let us check in a couple hours early since we were moving from another condo. The views are great from this particular unit, but I have stayed in quite a few Mana Kai units and they are all pretty darn great. My only complain here (and the reason I gave it 4 starts) is the requirement that we wash the beach towels before departure. This was really a major inconvenience considering it forced me to spend a couple hours on our last day doing laundry. I think it's unreasonable to put this responsibility on guests who are already paying quite a bit to stay there. My 2 cents!
Thank you for staying at our condo and taking time to write a review of your stay. We do not require the towels to be washed, but we encourage and appreciate people cleaning them. This helps the cleaning crew on days when there are back to back stays.
Overall the resort is beautiful and the condo was as pictured. However, the condo was not ready when we arrived at 3pm. In speaking with Gaby the property contact she thought we weren't getting there until 6pm although that was not indicated on the reservation form. The carpets had been cleaned and were not dry so we had to leave for a few hours until she could finish cleaning. It took a good day for the carpet to not feel damp and the wet smell to leave the condo. Also, I would suggest removing the garbage disposal since it cannot be used.The kitchen sink has an odor which may be related to whatever is in the disposal. Otherwise, the condo provided us with everything we needed and we enjoyed our stay and the beauty of the location. We would return! Mahalo.
Thank you for staying at our condo and writing a review of your stay. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would return to our condo, but very sorry about the carpet cleaning not done in time for your arrival. Gaby had actually arranged the shampooing to be done a few days before your arrival. But when she inspected the work, it was not done to her satisfaction. So, she ordered a second shampoo. There must have been a miscommunication about your arrival time. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
About the garbage disposal in the kitchen sink: we have some guests who come from outside of North America. We had to call a plumber because a large amount of cooked pasta or rice was dumped in the disposal. We are concerned that removing the disposal may lead to more problems. We communicated to Gaby to run the disposal with baking soda during a cleaning and make that a standard routine.
Mana Kai is a great location and many guests return to our condo. We look forward to hosting your next trip to Maui without any issues.
Great accommodations. Condo was clean, resort was clean. Location was great as well! Condo was nicely stocked. We loved sleeping with sliding doors open listening to the waves. The set up of the condo was great, gave my family plenty of room and gave our teenager her own space. The beach is steps away and we saw more turtles at that beach then we did at turtle cove. We will definitely be back!
This condo is located right at the south end of Kihei right next to Wailea where high end hotels and resorts are located. Keawakapu Beach is a beautiful very long swimming beach. You can see whales from our condo during winter months.
