Mana Kai Maui Resort Unit 402 is a newly-remodeled, custom designed two-bedroom beachfront condo situated at the sought-after ocean end of the resort, right on Keawakapu Beach. This condo has direct, unobstructed ocean views from both bedrooms - as well as on the outdoor lanai. Listen to the sound of ocean waves just a few feet away.

Generously appointed with luxury-style amenities, this special vacation condo at the Mana Kai Maui Resort is a great alternative to the luxury hotels just down the beach. Our guests consistently review our property to be among the very best vacation condos they have enjoyed in Maui or elsewhere.

We recently completed a top-to-bottom renovation, gutting the original condo down to the concrete, and started over. We moved interior walls, relocated closet spaces, designed all new lighting and expanded the usable space, including the new full-sized kitchen and bathrooms. We then curated original works from re-known Hawaiian artists, showcasing Hawaiian culture.

The result of this remodel is a more spacious, contemporary Hawaiian style condo with an upscale ocean-inspired design and gorgeous island décor. The new, updated space captures the essence of Hawaii with the feeling of the original Mana Kai resort. Guests enjoy a full-sized, custom kitchen, two (2) master bedrooms and two (2) custom bathrooms (each with a walk-in shower). The condo is also fully air-conditioned with two (2) Mitsubishi AC units, each separately controlled.


**PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED: Our home will be thoroughly cleaned before your stay by our exceptional local team. When you arrive, you will enjoy meticulously clean accommodations with fresh linens that have been professionally laundered and bedding that has been carefully prepared, just as you might expect when staying in a fine hotel. You will also be greeted by fresh Hawaiian flowers and an aloha basket with coffee and treats to welcome you after a long journey.

**OWNER MANAGED: We meticulously maintain our one-of-a-kind vacation beach property to provide our guests with an upscale vacation experience that some say rivals even the 5-star hotel accommodations nearby. We are passionate about providing our guests the best Maui vacation experience we possibly can. To do this, we carefully manage every detail of this special property ourselves. As our guest, you can call or text John & Sara us anytime, and get a helpful response right away!

**A TOP 5-STAR RATED PROPERTY: We encourage you to please read our many guest reviews, or watch the walk-through videos on-line. 402 is a special property that is consistently rated to be the top 5-star vacation condo at the Mana Kai Maui Resort. We continue to earn this reputation with each of our valued guests.

**IDEAL LOCATION: 402 is uniquely located at the ocean end of the building with breathtaking views of Keawakapu Beach, Wailea and Makena, as well as the islands of Molokini, Lanai and Kahoolawe. Unlike other units at the MKM, both bedrooms in 402 have direct, unobstructed views. 402 is ideally situated near the ocean end of the building, away from the stairwells, the elevators and the noise. Open the sliding doors to the large lanai and enjoy the soothing sounds of ocean waves from the beach just below.

**TWO BEDROOMS: Two (2) master bedrooms are furnished with custom-designed King-sized beds, comfortable Westin Heavenly Bed pillow-top mattresses, premium grade linens, down and down alternative pillows (along with extra pillows), and attractive bedding with decorative touches. Custom drapery in each bedroom is dual layer -- one sheer and one light-blocking -- for privacy, aesthetics and comfortable sleeping. Each master bedroom is private from the other with its own locking door and separate access (ingress/egress) to the exterior entry hallway (note that the front bedroom shares its space with the kitchen and living area but has its own locking door and is entirely private at bed time). Guests staying in either bedroom may separately enter/exit the condo through the exterior door in the common entry hallway. Therefore, two couples can stay at the condo together, with each couple having their own private bedroom space.

**TWO BATHROOMS: Two (2) redesigned custom en suite bathrooms, each with a clean, modern look that includes hidden pocket doors, walk-in showers with "linen" porcelain wall tile and custom-made glass mosaic tile accents. Both showers feature rain-heads and an extra wand. In the front bathroom you can actually take a shower with a partial view of the ocean! The new bathroom spaces are better utilized with modern wall-mounted vanities and dimmer controlled under-cabinet LED lighting on the floor. The front bathroom space includes an enclosed changing area with two closets and plenty of useful hooks and shelves. There are built-in LED make-up mirrors and even a Toto Japanese wash-let (an automated toilet with bidet). Premium grade towels are amply furnished.

**KITCHEN: Full-sized kitchen with custom in-wall appliances from Thermador/Bosch (fridge with ice-maker, induction cook-top, oven, drawer-style micro, dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, blender) new dishes, flatware, cutlery, glassware, Le Creuset non-stick cookware (non-carcinogenic, ceramic type) and all of the other conveniences you would ever want on your Maui vacation. We added LED lighting, illuminated glass shelves for glassware, and a small "waterfall" counter space. A modern vent hood with decorative white, amber or blue light is set against custom-made glass tile.

**LUXURY FEELING: The details in our condo were well-planned. A Japanese bidet (wash-let) set against a glass deco tile wall, Italian "beech wood" porcelain tile flooring, attractive low-voltage soffit, pendant and under-cabinet lighting, Hawaiian "Koa" wood ceiling fans, custom 4-color stained hickory wood cabinets, two (2) wall-mounted 4K televisions, built-in TV cabinets, a one-of-a-kind barn wood accent wall, modern ocean-inspired furnishings and original Hawaiian art - all of which are intended to compliment the modern yet warm feeling throughout.

**ORIGINAL WORKS OF ART: Our condo offers the true feeling of "Mana Kai" with a cache' of local ocean-themed art. Neutral colors inside the condo provide a clean backdrop, allowing your attention to be drawn to both the stunning art collection and the views of the Pacific Ocean. Works from renowned Hawaiian artists compliment the modern island de'cor, making the views inside as beautiful as the seascape and landscape outside. Our home’s new art collection tastefully and elegantly showcases the beauty and culture of the Hawaiian Islands. A majestic sea turtle captured by award-winning Maui sea life photographer, Daniel Cesere and a large wave photograph adorn the bedrooms. Original paintings include a triptych in acrylic entitled, "Wahine", featuring young surfers on Oahu painted by Maui's own Ronaldo Macedo, and a sensual and luminous oil portrait entitled, "Seabreeze", from Italian artist, Vidan. Complimenting the ocean design, the living space displays a large, colorful and vibrant Japanese-Hawaiian gyotaku triptych ("Fish Prints") from Maui artist, Carrie Brady. The mural is the anchor piece, featuring the eye-catching green and blue colors of local reef fish and marine life found right here on Keawakapu Beach.

**MAUI'S BEST BEACH: The beautiful beach is the best reason to come to Maui. The resort is situated on an angle facing down a mile-long stretch of world-class Keawakapu Beach (where the 5-star hotels in Maui are located) with beautiful sand and warm, clear water. A giant coral reef with great snorkeling and abundant tropical fish and sea life, including sea turtles, awaits you right here. Also an ideal beach for swimming or long beach walks.

**AIR CONDITIONING: Comfortable dual zone Mitsubishi AC throughout the condo, even though the condo's beach front location provides comfortable temperatures year-round. Each bedroom has its own thermostatic remote control.

**OTHER AMENITIES PROVIDED IN THE CONDO: Beach towels and beverage coolers are provided. Two (2) Bose Sound Link Bluetooth Speakers for music streaming. Chaise lounge chairs are provided for guest use at the pool and on the lawn (adjacent to the beach), telephone service, Free high-speed WiFi internet access in both bedrooms and throughout the condo. There is a free parking spot reserved for our guests. Best of all, 402 has a large oceanfront lanai situated right over the beach, with brand new zero gravity lounger chairs and designer furniture from Teak & Mahogany, so you can relax in style as you enjoy the amazing views.

**WASHING MACHINES & DRYERS: available steps away on the 4th floor (approx. $3 per load). Credit cards accepted.

**RESORT STYLE AMENITIES DOWNSTAIRS: The resort features a beautiful beachfront swimming pool and numerous vacation conveniences. Although we currently DO NOT have a restaurant on premises, a restaurant remodel is underway with the anticipated opening of a new Peter Merriman (Handcrafted Restaurants) restaurant in 2024. In the meantime, guests will enjoy wonderful coffees, sandwiches, alcoholic beverages and treats downstairs at the new "808 General Store". MKM offers an Activities Desk/Concierge and a Beach Equipment Rental Shop with snorkeling gear, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks and bikes, and an Outdoor BBQ Grill area exclusively for guest use.
