NOTE: I do not advertise on Craigslist, so please don't book with anyone claiming to represent Maui Kai 807 on Craigslist.
Maui Kai 807 is a small boutique oceanfront studio condo in West Maui on North Kaanapali Beach which you can book at mauikaibiz.
After a busy day of sightseeing, shopping, beaching and swimming in the warm ocean waters, return to the comforts and conveniences of your Hawaiian home. Take a refreshing shower before enjoying a fresh pineapple mai-tai on the private lanai while watching a gorgeous sunset.
If you wish to continue enjoying the sunset afterglow from the lanai instead of going out to one of the many fine restaurants a short drive away, you can grill fresh mahi-mahi or ahi steaks on the gas barbecues in the swimming pool area or prepare your own meal using fresh local foods purchased from the large grocery store or from the local farmers market, both a short walk away.
Our kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities for making a gourmet meal: refrigerator with filtered drinking water and ice maker, full-size stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, all of the kitchen utensils and appliances a foodie could desire and a vast array of local and Asian cuisine cookbooks.
You may never leave the lanai! The views of the brilliant blue ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai are spectacular. Nowhere in Hawaii but West Maui can you get such a view. During whale season you can use the binoculars in our condo to watch the humpback whales from your front row seats on the lanai, some as close as 100 yards offshore!
Our recently remodeled, 8th floor, oceanfront studio has been lovingly decorated to reflect the Hawaiian spirit. It includes all the amenities of a home away from home: daily maid service, central air conditioning, 32" high-definition flat-screen cable TV with HD DVR, Blu-Ray DVD, VCR, CD player, iPod docking station, FREE high speed cable and Wi-Fi Internet connection, queen pillowtop bed, easy chairs, dining table and a desk for your laptop computer, all with views of the ocean and spectacular sunsets. Our unit will provide you with all the comforts you desire.
The private oceanfront balcony allows you to sit and dine outside with complete and total privacy from your neighbors while enjoying the unparalleled 180-degree view of the islands of Lanai and Molokai.
In our oceanfront studio you will fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean waves. If quiet and privacy are as important to you as they are to us then you will revel in the peace and quiet that the Maui Kai concrete block construction provides.
Maui Kai has a lovely heated pool, Jacuzzi and gas barbecues. The pool area has picnic tables and outdoor furniture for hosting meals with friends and family. The pool cabana has a full kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven), bathrooms, lending library, ping pong table and dart board. It also has a FREE computer with a high-speed Internet connection for checking your email, surfing the web and printing your boarding passes.
Shortly before you leave for your stay in Maui Kai 807, I will email you my Local Girl's Guide to Maui. The guide started as a list I gave my friends of my favorite restaurants on Maui but over the years I've added information about my favorite local foods, where to buy them, farmers markets, beaches, snorkeling spots, hikes, excursions and of course shopping! The guide offers my unique perspective as a local Hawaii girl who has grown up, lived in and experienced the islands her entire life. I normally charge $10 for the guide but if you book our unit I will give it to you for FREE! Even if you don't book our unit, please feel free to contact me about purchasing the guide. For more information, please visit my Local Girl's Guide to Maui website.

“Fabulous 2 person beachfront condo”
We really enjoyed the Maui Kai and the condo was fabulous. It was a junior suite. It had a nice, well stocked clean kitchen. The daily maid service was awesome as well. The staff at the Maui Kai were very friendly as well even giving me a shipping box for packing my bouquet and shipping things we left. The pool and hot tub area were really nice and private. Our favorite part was definitely the lanai, nothing beats the ocean front view.
“Maui Kai offers a top-notch oceanfront experience.”
This junior suite offered incredible views for whale watching and met our every need. We had easy access to all the Maui attractions. We highly recommend this suite. The owner is very professional and easy to work with--you will be delighted with your stay at the friendly Maui Kai.
“Fabulous location right over the water!!!”
We stayed in a unit March 23-25, 2015 that we booked through the owner of this unit. The whole reason for booking this property was the views and the lanai. After encountering many ads that were scams,and other properties with HIGH cleaning fees and 'amenity' fees which jacked the price right out of the ball park. Maui Kai's advertised price was all inclusive. No hidden fees, no shocking fees to pay upon checkout. What was advertised was the rate we paid! I was able to speak to this owner directly and she offered 'real' conversation about this complex. After speaking with her, I felt completely secure in booking this room and had no reservations about showing up to an unknown property that potentially didn't really exist!! The room was a bit dated visually, but everything was completely functional and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen stocked with everything to prepare a nice meal. Snorkel gear, beach toys and chairs were in the unit for our use. Laying in bed with the sliding doors opened wide, it struck me as a view from a cruise ship. All you could see was ocean for miles with Lanai and Molokai off in the distance. We enjoyed our completely private lanai for morning coffee and breakfasts and the BEST sunset views on the island! We loved watching the paddle boarders, the whales breaching and the boats leaving from Lahaina. It was pure heaven. The view from out the front door, across the narrow building was also wonderful. There was no noise from neighbors due to the sound of the waves crashing. We felt completely alone in the building and that was magical! The elevators appeared to be new and were fast,fast fast. We booked through the owners of this unit (their unit was already booked) for the Maui Kai's rental pool, and they were VERY HELPFUL!!! The front desk staff was friendly and greeted us with big smiles and Aloha each time we walked in. The unit was freshened up, and stocked with fresh towels each day. We only stayed two nights, as we had other plans upcountry with friends the rest of our trip. Next time we will definitely look at at least a week at Maui Kai! We enjoyed a long romantic morning walk right out of the building on a white sandy beach. The ocean in front of the Maui Kai is also swimmable with easy access from our unit. The west side of the island was sunny and not so windy, easy access to everything and fabulous white sand beaches and excellent snorkeling at Honolua Bay with the enchanted garden/jungle walk in. We ate fresh Mahi Mahi fish tacos at the lookout from a fabulous food trailer there.....wonderful way to start a snorkel adventure. We drove around the point into Kahului and then back around. Beautiful drive and fantastic views the whole way.....caution, the road is very narrow in places.....BUT highly recommend the drive and back at the Maui Kai in time for Poke and Wine on the lanai for sunset! Funny enough.....even the parking lot was gorgeous and filled with Papaya trees and beautiful foliage with very well maintained grounds!! Thank you Maui Kai for an affordable yet FABULOUS accommodation!!! I almost booked a 'Disneyland' hotel resort out of default.....but i'm SO GLAD that I found the Maui Kai property before making that mistake!!! WOW!!!
“highlight of our trip”
It is a definitely pleasant stay at Maui Kai! All the rooms are ocean front with great view. We stayed at this unit, it is a new modeled, very clean and comfy room, way much better than what the photos and videos could show. It's really relaxing staying at the balcony watching whales, people surfing, sunset and having dinner after a whole day's sightseeing.The unit owner cares about her guests. There are travel guide book in the room, which make the trip much easier; Hawaiian musical CD, very enjoyable to play in the car; and even a binocle for whale watching. The room has every thing you can think of. The people at Maui Kai is very friendly. Will definitely come back if traveling to Maui again!
“The best one week of the year!”
This is the second time we rented from the owner of this unit, the experience was seamless the first time around which is why we called on her again. In fact, we rented the same condo both times. She is very helpful and she gave us her Local Girls Guide that had a list of everything imaginable. From good restaurants, farmers markets, beaches and trips. The condo is on the top floor and the views are unbeatable. Everyone at the front desk at Maui Kai is super nice and helpful. The location is amazing, there is super market within 2 minutes walking distance, fantastic restaurants (don't miss the food at the Fish Market, just around the corner) that you can walk to as well, and best of all, a beautiful beach on both sides. This was our third time in Maui and second time at Maui Kai - we will not hesitate to make future bookings because of the fantastic time we have every time.
“Really Liked this place. ocean view, ease access to beach.”
We stayed here for a week in December 2013 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Really liked the place. The beauty of this condo is its right on the beach. You can hear soothing waves, see shimmering moonlight and feel the sweet cool breeze at night sitting in the balcony. This made our stay enjoyable and memorable. It's not a resort. We were looking for a simple condo as we have planned lot of outside activities. It more than met our expectations. There is a small pool which we never used as were busy sight seeing. Conveniently located. Daily maid service was good. There is a superstore for groceries within walking distance. From the corridor, you can see aston Kaanapali's swimming pool and activities. We booked through the owner of this unit. She was very helpful.
“A Room With a View!!”
We recently returned from a two week stay at Maui Kai arranged for us by the owner of this unit. We had requested a junior ocean front studio with an open lanai and on a floor above the 3rd floor. The staff of Maui Kai was able to accommodate our request and we had an ideal view of the ocean. We actually felt as if the building were on stilts in the water because of the proximity to the water! We enjoy snorkelling and were able to snorkel right out in front when the seas were calm. Not being sun worshippers, our only complaint was that the building provided no shade for those who preferred a shaded area when sitting on the beach. The studio had everything we needed should we prefer to eat in. We might suggest supplying beach chairs and a cooler for guests to avoid the hassle of renting and returning. We loved the ability to walk to Whalers Village and restaurants. We definitely hope to return.
“Great condo for relaxation & ocean views”
This was our 2nd time staying in this unit. This place is great, very relaxing. The owner of this unit was great to work with. If you book a condo with her she will send you her Local Girl's Guide To Maui or Honolulu wherever you are staying. This guidebook will help you a lot - it's the best info around. Well back to the condo. The people who work here are great to deal with, they have lots of knowledge of the area & things to do. This is a very relaxing place to stay, the pool never has a lot of people around it most of the time you are by yourself. There are barbeques to cook on while you enjoy the pool. The best part is the views from your lanai - you see so much from there that you do not want to leave. We saw turtles, sting rays, a pod of dolphins & some mahi mahi jumping & feeding on bait & rainbows right in front of you. This is not a fancy & busy place, just a great place to stay if you want peace & quiet with a million dollar view. The condos are personally decorated by their owners & the staff keeps the place very clean. You will not be disappointed with this place. Market & restaurants right down the street & bus stop, you do not need a car to move around. We will stay here every time we visit Maui. Thanks for a great stay Maui Kai Steve & Mary Lou.
“Add this place to your bucket list!!!”
Maui Kai is amazing! The views alone are worth more than the daily rate. The people who work here are friendly and make us feel like part of the ohana! Close to everything without the big resort feel. Since her unit was already booked, the owner of this unit booked us into a studio with low key decor and everything you might need. Love, love, love this place.
“Without this view, you don't know what you're missing.”
We stayed in a junior suite that we booked through the owner of this unit. The room, the view, the atmosphere, the location... All excellent. I read the reviews before selecting the Maui Kai. Yet it wasn't until we were actually there to experience it in person, that the words of praise became real. I could not drag myself away from the view from our balcony. Awe inspiring. We hope to return to this property on our next trip to Maui.
