We had a great stay! A little snafu with receiving the door code but property manager was on it!
Only suggestion is to maybe add a cleaning supply, windex, Clorox wipes to clean the glass top surfaces during the stay.
We were very happy with our stay in 215 and would definitely stay here again. You can't find a better accessible beach! This is our 2nd stay at the Mana Kai and I really like the location of this unit. Its on the 2nd floor and at the far end of the beach, (still a great view!) even though its close to the ground floor its still very quiet because it's away from the pool and the yard everyone hangs out at, another cool thing is the front bedroom near the entrance does not have the walkway in front of it because it is on the end. The beds were pretty comfy, one is really firm and the other is soft. Both bathrooms have tub showers but have hand rails in them. The air conditioning and fans all work great. The patio furniture is comfy. Only cons: If you like to do a lot of you own cooking the pots and pans really need to be replaced and the dishwasher is on its last leg. We mostly ate out and did dishes by hand or only used the bottom rack of the dishwasher. The front bedroom window seal whistles in high winds. Don't let these things stop you from renting this unit because the price of the rental far out ways these minor details.
We really enjoyed our stay here! The place was well equipped with everything you need.
It was well cleaned and tidy. The condo comes with a beautiful view of the ocean from your bedroom and living room that leads to the patio. Which was a great way to wake up in morning. We also loved having our morning coffee on the patio. You can also enjoy listening to the sounds of waves crashing in the ocean from the condo throughout the day. Our two young boys enjoyed being able to walk down to the beach and then hop to the pool after. I had a lot of questions prior to our trip and the host was very informative and quick to respond. We will definitely stay here again!
We would definitely stay again. Thank you!
Stayed here for our family vacation, it was a great location. We would definitely stay here again.
This is the second time staying at this unit and it was again a great stay. The unit is well appointed and Mana Kai overall is a great place to stay.
Our family stayed at this resort for our family vacation and had a great time. Great location with a great view.
We have stayed in a few different Mana Kai units over the years. This unit is on the lowest floor and is furthest from the beach, but the view is still great and the unit is well-appointed. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was as enjoyable as ever. Great stay and recommended.
The Mana Kai sits on a wonderful part of Maui just north of Wailea and the property itself is right on a lovely beach with a unique grassy area to watch sunsets. Having the ocean and pool seconds from the unit was a real treat - no driving and easy respite back at the room for supplies or rest. The unit has a nice ocean view (albeit, some of the other units have nicer views) and we appreciated the beach chairs and cooler. There was snorkel gear as well but we opted to rent our own onsite at a reasonable cost. Our main frustration was with the check-in process. We received multiple emails from VRBO (who we booked through) and another rental agency with conflicting information on check in times and entry codes to unlock the front door. The code to enter the unit was wrong from VRBO and not supplied by the other rental agency. The front desk's hands were tied so it was a waiting game combined with combing through more than 8 emails and messages to figure out what to do. Not being able to get settled into the property after a long flight and airport logistics is not a fun place to be, I've noticed others have had this frustration so hopefully this situation can be cleaned up for future guests.
I didn’t expect much from the unit as it was on the cheaper end of others in the building. Pros: Can’t beat the location, the kitchen was well stocked, good water pressure, soft linens. Cons: there is no air conditioning in the main bedroom, the entire unit could use an update, bed was uncomfortable. Check-in was easy, and I would stay here again, if only for the location at my favorite beach!
Being right on the ocean at Keawakapu Beach is hard to beat. Wailea hotels are nice but you pay the price. The 215 has the least line of sight view down the beach but it has a good ocean view that you would pay a premium for at a hotel. Our only problem was getting an incorrect entry code from VRBO and having to try to track down the right # with the time difference between Hawaii and the mainland. Fortunately, we were able to work that out and our host was gracious enough to give us a late checkout as no one was entering the unit the day we were leaving.
Great place to stay while visiting Maui. Great location, comfortable beds, lovely ammenities.
