We have stayed at the Maui Kai several times and this was on the back end of a 50th anniversary celebration in July. Without question, Barry and Rhonda's place is absolutely beautiful and they have thought about and included for just about every conceivably need a traveler might have for a stay on Maui, from the kitchen, to the bedroom, to entertainment, to going out and enjoying the beaches and restaurants of Maui, they seem to have anticipated it all. Oh yes, you cannot get any closer to the ocean and have a more spectacular view. From a communication standpoint, Barry and Rhonda were always available both before and during our stay. We could not have enjoyed our visit more and we would most definitely recommend their place to anyone.
Wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary. The best part of the trip was waking up every morning sipping coffee and relaxing on the deck looking out at that amazing view. The evening drinks weren't bad either. The condo was very comfortable in every way wouldn't change a thing. Beautifully remodeled. You couldn't ask for better with the ocean one way and the mountains the other. Everything you could think of within walking distance. Loved this place will definitely be back.
This is a must stay condo if visiting the west end of Maui. The views are absolutely spectacular and the property was so quiet. Everything was just as described in the listing and the unit was spotless. Just a wonderful vacation from start to finish and we couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here.
The pictures do not do this place justice. I was a little concerned about the square footage of this condo, but once in there, it felt so roomy. The decorations were so nice and the use of mirrors made it look spacious. They have thought of about everything that you would need for your stay. I am not one to sit still for very long, but this place was so relaxing that I didn’t want to leave the lanai and the spectacular view of the ocean. Everything was perfect, except for the day before we arrived, the building management sprayed the whole complex for bugs. Well in doing that we think they chased some into the condo, but Barry was quick to get an exterminator in and that problem was taken care of. The building looks to be about 50 years old on the outside…not really a problem, because the inside is beautiful. In fact, I doubt if current codes would allow anyone to build that close to the water today. This was the first vacation that I have had, where I was sad about leaving. We would certainly come back again.

We had a wonderful stay in Maui. We saw a few whales right from the lanai the minute we arrived! Host, Barry was quick to respond to an issue with the wifi and had it rectified in minutes. We met so many friendly people at the resort.
We enjoyed our time at our Maui Kai condo, beautiful views of the ocean and the condo was exactly as it looked on its pictures with everything we needed!
My G/F and I enjoyed the property and the location. We wanted to watch the whales and from this property we were entertained all day. The property is in a wonderful location near grocery stores and restaurants. We definitely recommend this property.
We just loved Barry’s condo. He was always available to answer all questions. We spent so much time on the beautiful lanai which had a direct ocean view. Everything about the condo was 1st class
This is an amazing, modern condo with an unbelievable view! We watched whales all day! We’ve been coming to Maui for years and this was our favorite rental we’ve had by far.
You can't beat this view. You're never going to get this view in ANY resort.
This property was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon. We never used any of the kitchen stuff to cook with, but it’s well stocked! The views from the lanai are second to none. We sat out there every morning and evening just listening to the waves crash in and it was so relaxing! There is a grocery store across the street for whatever you need which was convenient. Overall an excellent stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone.
The unit was very nice and exactly as stated. Location was great for people who don’t rent a car. Groceries, restaurants and food trucks all within a short walk. The only issue was poor communication with the property manager for daily essentials that were not in ample supply for our two week stay.
My husband and I absolutely loved Barry’s place! It looks exactly how it’s listed the views of the lanai are incredible. We couldn’t get over the beautiful sunsets we were able to experience from the lanai. We even got to see turtles from the lanai! Would definitely love to stay at Barry’s place again if we’re ever back in Maui! Thank you Barry for letting us stay at your place!!
Nice property. Nicely remodeled. Best view. Well equipped.
This place was as good as advertised. Actually the beach access was closer than we thought. It's literally a walk through the back lobby and you are there. Just minutes away. We saw a school of dolphins from our porch with our binoculars. Would highly recommend!
The view from the Lanai was spectacular! Everything that we needed was provided and we really enjoyed the beautiful pool. We hope to visit again!
Beautiful place and close to many things. Barry was helpful and responsive. We had all we needed and more!
The property was awesome! The view is incredible and everything you could ever need is in one of their many storage compartments in the condo. My Wife and I were spending our honeymoon in Maui and went snorkeling, hiking, beach day, ect. Everything we could ever need for all of those activities were provided by Barry and Rhonda. Thank you for an awesome stay and making our Maui experience that much better!
This was our first and more likely our only trip to Maui.
Our daughter found this condo for us. It was exactly what we wanted. We wanted that WOW factor! As you walk into the condo, that’s what we got. The bedroom was a nice size and decorated lovely. In fact, the décor was perfect for the Hawaiian feel we wanted and super comfortable, wherever you sat. The kitchen had plenty of kitchen utensils, pots and pans anything you could imagine to fix. It was great. The bathroom was great also. The shower had great water pressure and loved the overall look of the bathroom. You can’t beat the sunsets from the Lani. They were absolutely stunning. The Lani was a perfect setting to catch the morning breeze, lunch, and the amazing sunsets while having desserts, or drinks! If we could ever go again, we would want this exact place. It was beautiful and peaceful. Whenever we had questions Barry or Rhonda got right back to us. The pool area was great too, for families or just for two. YOU’LL love it!
Staying at the condo definitely felt like a home away from home. I’m so glad we decided to stay here it was a game changer I don’t think I’ll ever go back to renting hotel rooms again. The condo was super clean not just inside but outside the property as well. Barry & Rhonda had everything you could think of! The location was great with a shopping center and food trucks across the parking lot. The view was breathtaking! Watching the sunset was amazing. We can’t wait to book our next trip!
My husband and I had the most relaxing two weeks than we’ve had in a while, in Barry and Rhonda’s wonderful condo in the beach. The condo is perfectly situated right on the water, just as the VRBO photos show. The laina was amazing - we could have stayed there all day, though it gets really hot in the afternoon. The living room is spacious, and we did yoga in the floor every morning, listening to the ocean waves, and using the yoga mats and blocks in the condo. Also, Barry was incredibly responsive and friendly when I needed to ask him questions. We were not disappointed!
This condo had everything. Quick access to the beach walk. Absolutely loved hearing the waves crashing….so relaxing. This is the place to stay in Maui
The Condo was perfect, beautiful and location was fantastic. It connects to Kaanapali beach and the beach walk. Walking distance to many Reastuarant’s and shops. Definitely would book here again!
A great window on the world. Sunsets were amazing. Whales in front of the lanai the first day.
The condo was exactly as described. Everything you could possibly need was there. We spent a lot of the time sitting on the lanai enjoying the beautiful view and the great sound system. Would defiantly rent again!
After researching hotels in the same area that were twice the nightly rate and simply a small room with a bed, we decided to try renting a condo instead. I am so glad we did. The condo is very spacious, clean, and current. We spent so much time on the back patio because of the amazing views and privacy. There’s nothing better than drinking your morning coffee out there watching the whales.
The area is unbelievable too. The condo feels so private and calm but there are tons of restaurants and activities just minutes away. The food truck park being a quick walk away was so nice. Overall, we had an amazing experience on our first trip to Hawaii and our condo rental was a major factor!!!
Stocked insanely well. So many activities that you will want to do require equipment (snorkels, beach stuff, goggles, beach towels, etc) and they have it all. Pretty much everything we needed, they provided.
The views are literally incredible. We stayed there for 5 nights and then came to a resort in Wailea for 3 nights, and the views from MauiKai (this VRBO) are 10000x better. You are literally on the water at MauiKai, only a few rocks separate you. Both sides of the place has a beach, and the beach extends very far. Something to note is that nobody owns any part of the beach. You can go on ANY beach in Maui and have 100% right to do so. Look it up if you don’t believe me. Back to the views, incredible. Whales so much that you almost get used to it. They also provide binoculars that make it even better.
We used MauiKai as a staging ground to explore the island, and it was so nice waking up there and also falling asleep there. Both beds are comfortable, obviously one is a pullout but it’s still top quality.
There is so much more but if you get the chance to rent this, do it. So many places are dated. This is not. Surround sound, huge TV, amazing bathroom, quiet neighbors, and honestly you don’t really hear anyone else.
Enjoy! You’ll be writing the same review after I guarantee it.
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved staying in unit 405. The view of the ocean is amazing. We liked that it was not a big resort type of place. The condo has absolutely everything you need: Full kitchen, nice furniture, comfortable king bed, tons of extra items that you could never find in a hotel room. We will definitely look to renting this unit for our next trip to Maui!! Thank you, Dave and Penny.
We are very happy with our stay at this property, unbeatable ocean and sunset view from the lanai, newly remodeled, kitchen is well stocked and equipped, the grocery store is also within walking distance, it matches everything we could wish for our vacation.
I was concerned about the ocean wave sound at night, since the building is so close to the ocean, but it turned out the double glass doors design make the living space very quite at night, that's awesome. The only thing I could recommend for improvement is, just trying to make the condo 120% perfect, seems there is some gap between the shower glass door and shower wall, sometimes I noticed water splashing through the gap to the bathroom floor, may can use some extra seal strip.
Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place, we definitely will come back for our next trip.
Beautiful condo right on the beach. Equipped with everything you'll need. Thank you Barry & Rhonda for sharing your home with us. We had a fantastic trip. Can't wait to come back again!
Mahalo, Eileen & Russ
The best feature of this place is the updated unit and lanai where you can get a 180 view. Car rental is strongly suggested. Also note that the high tide may affect beach accessibility.
Great stay overall and a beautiful unmatched view. It was well equipped with most everything and an especially extra nice touch for beach items. Only negative is that we did feel that the property could have used a bit more cleaning. When we entered the room, there was quite a bit of residue scattered on the floor. We ending up vacuuming and mopping. Additionally, we ending up with some ants in the kitchen which was observed on day 1 before taking out any food. The property manager was quick to respond and get the building manager to spray and set traps in the kitchen a couple of days later. A small hinderance which was mostly offset by the positive.
This property was absolutely perfect. We do not the resort vibe in Hawaii, so you won't find us at the Sheraton, Four Seasons, or anywhere else like that. We prefer the privacy and seclusion that houses provide but the convenience, location, and overall "niceness" that condos provide. Barry and Rhonda's place fit the bill perfectly. Amazing views, with the waves slapping the rocks literally right below you, a 4th floor view low enough to hear the waves but high enough to see for miles, and amenities that feel like they were updated tomorrow...very futuristic. The 75" behemoth of a TV in the living room and premium sound system made for relaxing evening after long days, and the kitchen was fully stocked...beyond even what we have in our own home. What more is that the whole condo was stocked with everything anyone would need for beach fun...multiple snorkel sets, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and a compact/folding beach wagon. The high tech AC does the job when you need it to, but we preferred an open air feel- and the cross winds you get through the place when the bedroom window is open and the lanai doors are open was incredible.
Overall, we left telling each other that there wasn't a single thing we could complain about with this place. It was perfect. Thank you, Barry and Rhonda.
This place is lovely, the view is so relaxing and doesn't get any better. Everything is in walking distance. Would definitely recommend this place.
Our stay at Kaanapali was a perfect stay for our honeymoon! The condo has an breathtaking view and has so many thoughtful touches which makes your stay as if you were at home! So many restaurants within walking distance and great snorkeling right outside! Totally worth the price!
We loved staying at this condo. The view and lanai was spectacular! It was recently remodeled and felt very roomy and new. It was well stocked with everything you would need and you can tell it was very well thought out. We only had to reach out to the owners once and they were very accommodating. If we are really reaching for something to improve it would be a cordless vacuum and maybe a clothesline for wet beach items. Thats really more of an observation than a critique. The condo was excellent.
It was a great central location as well. Could walk to several nice beaches and only about 10 - 15 minutes from
downtown Lahaina. We definitely recommend staying here.
This condo was exactly what we were looking for. The owners clearly care a lot about the property and their guests’ experience. The condo was super clean on arrival and had a lot of little things that made the stay more convenient. The view is even better than advertised and we ate breakfast on the lanai every morning. My only suggestion would be to either replace the pull out couch (or add an air mattress) as the existing one is not comfortable and smells a little musty. All in all, an amazing rental and I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for comfort, cleanliness and an unparalleled view.
Thank you both for a perfect second stop on our honeymoon. The views were perfect and we greatly enjoyed our stay!
The apartment was amazing. Located in the heart of the maui beaches with amazing views of the ocean and sunset. Our hosts were great and always in contact with us. I highly recommend this unit.
We needed a place to stay for three days until we checked in to our timeshare for a week. The condo was very nice and met all of our needs. The views were amazing. It was very nice to have the beach chairs, cooler and especially the wagon since the beach is a little walk. It made it very easy to get to the beach without lugging everything in one trip. Thanks....
This condo is located in a beautiful spot right on the ocean. You can sit on the lanai and watch the sunset with nothing else in view but the ocean.
The unit is well stocked with all the beach items and kitchen gadgets you could need. We especially appreciated the coffee grinder and french press.
The area surrounding the condo is fairly busy and anything you might need is nearby.
The pictures don't do the view this property gives you justice. We watched the sunset over the ocean every evening and usually had a rainbow over the mountains on most mornings.
The location is very convenient with easy access to Kaanapali Beach, a shopping strip with a grocery store, and a food truck park are directly across the street.
Very nicely remodeled and everything we needed in the kitchen to cook meals at the condo. Both the bed and sofa bed were very comfortable and we easily slept four with plenty of room for all of our luggage.
We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to Maui. Mahalo for sharing your condo with us!
We had a great stay! The condo was comfortable, very clean and stocked with most everything we needed! The view and sound of the ocean is amazing!
