Cute, cozy, and a great location to the beach and restaurants.
There were 3 of us and we couldn’t have asked for a more convenient location. The bed and sofa bed were comfy, the kitchen was stocked well, and there were plenty of beach chairs and toys for all. We would definitely recommend this unit and hope to return before too long!
Clean place, lots of fun beach toys, convenient location, easy to check in and out of. Pull out couch was very comfortable.
My stay is always great in Kihei!
This trip, there was something going on with the sewer line and when I reported it, I was re-accommodated in another unit very quickly. Karen has always been wonderful when it comes to her guests. The situation was worked on the same day - the staff at Kihei Kai Nani are the best!
We really enjoyed our stay. Everything we could possibly need was provided in the condo, including beach chairs and an umbrella which was a nice touch! The bed was extremely comfortable and the location can’t be beat - we walked across the street to watch the sunset on the beach every night. Highly recommend staying here!
My husband and I lived on Maui for 8 years and moved away 6 years ago. We recently visited for 3 weeks to relive old memories and stayed at a friend's place for most of the time. But, we decided to book a short stay at Kihei Kai Kanani for the last part of our stay to have the experience of being right across from one of the best beaches on Maui. Everything was great and the price was right. It was fun being right in the middle of Kihei and Wailea.
We spent a week exploring Maui and this condo provided all we needed as our home base. The kitchen was nice and well stocked, allowing us to eat at home easily, and the provided beach gear was appreciated. We enjoyed being just a very short walk from the beach, and also the good location relative to the many other sites around Maui. The portable AC unit was useful in the evenings and made it easier to sleep well. It’s not especially fancy but it does the job very well. We’d happily return!
Very nice, clean and confortable place for a vacation!! Owner communication was top notch. Will recommend to others visitng this piece of paradise!!
As the title says, you really can’t find a better condo for this price and location. However, the bathroom looked like it hadn’t been properly cleaned in a while. I also think it’s important to note that there isn’t central AC, only two window units. The one in the bedroom works really well but the one in the living room wasn’t great. I’m not sure what was going on, but the water was shut off three separate time for 5 ish hours at a time while there. Overall, the condo could use some updates, but if you aren’t planning on spending much time there then I highly recommend it. The beach chairs/umbrella were in great shape and the host was very responsive.
Right across from the beach.
Kitchen area was really nice.
Liked that they offered supplies for the beach.
Amazing rental for great price centrally located in Kihei only minutes from beach!
It was just as described. The property was well kept and very close to the beach. The condo itself had everything we needed and we felt right at home. Highly recommended!
We stayed at Karen’s place and had a very good vacation time. The apartment is located just 5 minutes from the beach, and we walked there every single day because it was so close. The apartment is very clean and has all the amenities needed for a relaxing vacation time. One plus thing is the portable air conditioner that help we enjoyed the stay very much.
Spent a couple nights here with my wife and all I can say is it’s perfect. Bed was super comfy, kitchen is well stocked, the decor was on point and it’s literally across from the beach (all your beach needs are included as well)
Condo was clean. Across from the ocean, close to restaurants and shopping. Had a great time.
Already missing this special place. It lacked nothing and had all the amenities we needed and then some. It was clean, quiet, and cozy! Just a like a home away from home should be. We are booking for next year already. Book this one- you won't be disappointed. Did I mention that the bed is more comfortable than the one we have at home?!
Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and some activities. I would love to own a place like this!
The accommodations are conveniently located a block from the beach. It was clean and I enjoyed my stay.
Nice property close to beach, walking distance to several restaurants and stores.
Great location, walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Well stocked, every kitchen utensil, appliance, etc. Chairs, umbrella, cooler, fins, etc. Great patio for morning coffee. Clean. Very comfortable bed. Great condo community. Property very well maintained. Absolutely no issues.
Perfect place and location for our Maui getaway. Walked to restaurants and beautiful beach. Lots of amenities. Felt like home!
We had a great week at Karen's place for our honeymoon – for the cost we paid, we would stay here again and recommend to others!
Location and Property 5/5 - Right across from a few beaches, easy available parking, pool and laundry on site, easy to walk to shops and food, fairly quiet other than some roosters in the morning. We spent our mornings on the lanai, it was private and lush-even with a building on the other side of the bushes we barely knew there was anything going on back there. Unfortunately there was a pest spray of our building occurring during our stay which was a minor inconvenience for us.
Condo Amenities 4/5 - Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, kitchen was fully stocked and lots of beach gear available. A few items in the kitchen and bathroom could use a refresh/replacement. A/C in the unit was great to have, we really only needed to use it in the bedroom at night as the unit was fairly breezy during the day. Bed was on the softer side and was comfortable based on our preferences.
Cleanliness 4/5 - Some aspects of the condo could have been cleaner, but perhaps the cleaners were rushed on the last turnover. Any bugs we found were dead, but nothing exceptionally unusual for Hawaii.
Communication 4/5 - Karen provided thorough instructions on accessing the property. She got back to us quickly when we messaged her.
This 1b1b was a great fit for our small family of 4 (2 adults and 2 small kids) and was in excellent location across the pool and also across the street from the ocean. Unit was very clean and had everything we needed. Kitchen was nicely stocked for our needs, also had some extra beach equipment for us to use such as chairs and umbrellas. AC units worked very well and kept us cool. The sofa also is a pull out bed though we didn’t get to use it. Would definitely consider staying here again!
Karen's place was perfect for our 10 day trip to Maui. So close to amazing beaches and food options. Being in Kihei is a great base as well to explore the island. I would gladly stay again here.
Everything was as described. The condo was well equipped, beautiful setting. The weather was hot outside so we were glad that the unit had 2 air conditioners. We didn't have any complaints. Would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed at Karen’s property for our honeymoon on Maui. This place was in a great location and Karen had great communication with us throughout our stay. I’ve recommended this place to my Mom and they’ve also booked it for next year. Highly recommend!
It was easy, a wonderful experience over all.
We really appreciated Karen’s condo. It was clean, near a wonderful beach where you can easily snorkel. The condo was bigger than the pictures showed. The check in was easy and Karen was great also for the communication. We would definitly come back at that place.
Cute little spot - has all that you need for a Maui getaway! I did not spend too much time in the place during the day as we were out literally all day. It worked well for our party of 2. We used the pull-out sofa bed, which wasn't bad at all. You can hear most of what is going on outside and with the nearby neighbors, something to keep in mind if you are a light sleeper. I was so tired from being out all day that it was fine, plus the AC served as background noise. I would definitely stay there again.
Karen's place was so nice and cozy. Very clean and had everything you could need. The location was amazing too! Quick walk to the beach and restaurants. Highly recommend!
Everything was as advertised. Great place to stay, and central enough get to Haleakala, Road to Hana, and Kapalua for road trips. Thanks!
Location is awesome!! We walked to the beach several times, along with walking to restaurants and stores! But also, we did many activities on different sides of the island (Hana, Haleakala, Lahaina zip line, blow hole far north, etc.) and this area of Kihei is PERFECT for getting to all places within a reasonable time! BTW, to see a quick video of this condo and reviews on things to do in Maui, check out my TikTok (@VegasKnowItAll)!
The place was actually larger than I anticipated! It's very comfortable and fully stocked! Shower has nice pressure and plenty of hot water, A/C in bedroom worked great (only one we needed for a few hours we've going to bed), and the bed was SOOOO comfortable! My friend and I both slept like rocks every night (even through all the loud birds/roosters in the morning.. lol).
Parking is fine, plenty of spaces in front of the door and communication was timely! I would definitely stay here again!
Kihei was the perfect town to stay in, and Karen did a great job making the apartment comfortable with AC units and a very comfortable bed. We loved our stay and would love to rent again!
Very clean unit with all the necessities. Close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants.
What a cozy, comfy place w a decent kitchen, awesome location and grounds. Reasonably priced. Think early morning beach walks and sunsets!
We had a great stay. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. It was very centrally located, with good access to bars and restaurants in Kihei within walking distance, and an easy drive to areas further away. The beach was also an easy walk.
The condo is right across the street from the best beach in the area. On either side of the property there are great restaurants like Coconut’s Fish Grill, Fred’s Mexican Restaurant, and The Cinnamon Roll place for amazing breakfasts. There is also a small market next door. The Community BBQ is right out the back, and the lanai patio is great and very private.
The location of the complex was for us perfect - with easy access to the beach for sunset views, a short drive to grocery stores and restaurants, and also a good location to reach each corner of Maui.
The unit had everything we needed in terms of beach chairs, towels, and even toys and an umbrella! Unlike so many condos, the kitchen was well supplied with everything needed to cook or store food. The ONLY missing thing was a cutting board!
I had to take the lamp shade off one of the table lamps as I found the great room too dark as there was no overhead light.
Karen was super responsive and the place had all the little amenities that made it a great home base for exploring the island. Would highly recommend!
This condo was very convenient to restaurants and beaches. The kitchen was well equipped. The bed was nice, but on the soft side, which might be an issue for some, but a dream for others. We really appreciated being able to schedule a late checkout and also the beach chairs and beach umbrella. We used the AC in the bedroom at night but never even needed the other one. The temperature stayed pretty nice. But I was so glad to know that we had the option if it were to be too hot.
This property was perfectly located near beaches and near restaurants. Perfect area to view the sunsets daily. The place was equipped with all the necessities which made for a seamless stay.
Just a great find in South Kihei! We absolutely loved this property. Karen was very helpful in her communications and made it very clear how to find the property and check in. The condo is located on the 1st floor which is fantastic because you have access to the delightful backyard with a grill a few yards away for all your outdoor cooking. Everything you need is in the condo, all the cooking utensils, dishes, etc. There are beach chairs and an umbrella too. The bed is actually very comfortable! There are AC units in the bedroom and the living room but we have not used it even once because the condo has a nice draft once you open the back door and the front door and leave the storm screens closed. The location is fantastic! Right across the street from Kamaole 2 beach, next to Fred's Mexican cafe and Coconut's cafe. Foodland is a very short drive away for all your delicious Poke bowls!!! Thank you very much for everything Karen! We loved it there and we will certainly be back!
Enjoyed the condo. Had everything I needed. Weather in October is amazing. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Karen for the wonderful vacation rental.
Location is perfect if you’re looking to explore Kihei! It had everything we could need for our stay!
The place was clean and beautiful and the owner seemed to think of everything we need including beach equipment chairs, umbrella and so thoughtful. It was all so organized. I am very happy with our choice and the location was beautiful. Thank you so much.
The condo was in a great location, allowed us to get up and swim in the morning every day. Close to restaurants and groceries. The back patio was lovely and the complex was pretty quiet. Overall a nice stay.
Last minute decision to come to the island. Great communication, great location. Everything was provided. All around great experience.
Perfect location! I attended a conference during a national holiday and needed a place where I could rest and have fun after each meeting - this hit the spot. Quiet, fun surroundings, stores, restaurants, everything I needed within short walking distances. The condo was so comfortable with amenities that went above what I expected and the staff on-site were spot on and very attentive. I highly recommend this condo. Thank you for everything, Karen and Vern! I'll be back.
We loved our stay at Karen's condo. The space was clean and well equiped. The bed is super comfortable! The beach accesories were a nice touch. The complex was nice and the location was great. The beach is across the street and there are multiple restaurants within walking distance. We will be back! Thank you karen. :)
The condo was a great place for my partner and I to stay while we hopped over from Oahu. We were very impressed with the area and how nice the whole complex was! We are already trying to convince more family from the mainland to come join us on a longer vacation so we can truly take in what Maui has to offer! We had a short but unforgettable time and getting to come back to a clean and cool condo each night to make dinner was awesome. Highly recommend the Kihei Kai Nani and hope to be back so soon. Aloha!
Enjoyed the location and quietness of this condo.
Nice simple condo space with functional kitchen on the hustle and bustle of the Kehie beach front.
Couldn’t have asked for a better location. Very nice and spacious unit
Property is located just across from the beach! If you've had enough of the beach, the property also has a decent sized pool you can use. Enjoyed my stay here.
We had the best vacation ever ! The condo was beautiful and well equipped with everything needed. The bed is very comfortable with low, high, soft and firm pillows - awesome! A great beach is right across the road along with fun restaurants, bistros and deli's. Will stay here again. I recommend.
I absolutely love this condo. My 9th year coming over to the same place. It feels like home. Close to the pool, beach and shopping. Everything you need will be in this condo, even laundry soap. How great is that? The welcome basket is always a treat. I recommend this unit to anyone who wants a quality vacation unit. There's even an air conditioner in the bedroom now. What a pleasant surprise. Maybe when I come in the summer I will need to test it out.
My husband and I stayed here for four nights in late November. The unit was clean, easy to find, and comfortable. The complex is a little dated, but met our needs nonetheless. It really feels you are vacationing where the locals vacation, very laid back and authentic. We really enjoyed the proximity to great beaches and yummy food! I would have awarded 4.5 stars if possible and the only reason that it wasn't a 5 star experience was the small problem we had with ants in the bathroom - I prefer not having to spray for pests when I'm on vacation....but again, that was a very small inconvenience. Overall a wonderful experience.
I stayed here for 4 nights in November 2017 as a party of 2 adults. In my previous 2 trips to Maui, I also stayed in other properties in the Kihei area. With this unit, there was an ownership change at the time, but that did not affect my stay.
The unit is centrally located in Kihei and is within walking distance to restaurants and beaches. There was plenty of parking. It's also a very quiet unit. I think the complex is generally quiet.
The condo is well furnished, the appliances are newer and it looks like there have been some updates throughout. We cooked our dinners during the evening. Internet connection was strong. There is some limited TV, but we didn't stay up to watch.
There is a central laundry / dryer room located next to the pool. The change machine does not return dollar bills, so don't put in large dollar bills, otherwise, you'll be getting a lot of quarters in return.
I found that the air con unit was not needed during the evenings. I know the time we were there was a bit cooler than usual, but it's possible that the trade winds will keep the unit comfortably cool in the evenings.
I did not use the lanai area as we already left the unit in the morning, and usually came back in the evening by sunset.
Overall, I was happy with my stay in Unit 142. It would be good for solo and couples.
