Mana Kai Resort 2 bed 2 bath

As frequent visitors to Hawaii, we fell in love with this little stretch of Maui. It offers the best of a Hawaiian island getaway! Our condo is part of the Mana Kai Resort where people have returned year after year for two generations. It is located right on what many consider to be one of the best beaches on Maui. From the lanai (balcony) enjoy the sound of the waves along with the panoramic view of miles of blue ocean, golden sand beach, palm trees, Molokini, Lanai, and Haleakala.

**The Five Palms Restaurant and Bar is closed, and a new restaurant is scheduled to open October 2023. Renovations are possible from 8am-5pm, Monday thru Friday. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and have discounted our rate accordingly.**

It is easy to find your "spot" on the beach. Even in the busiest of times of the year before the pandemic, it was possible to have "social distancing." We just didn't know that's what it was called back then. :)

Please look through the photos above. Hopefully, the pictures are worth a thousand words! Now for the details:

• The entire condo is 762 sq. feet
• Bedroom One is really a studio apartment with a sleeping area with a King size bed, living room, full bath, and kitchen. It functions wonderfully as a “great room” during the day. At night, we love falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves with the sliding glass doors open. It is 604 sq. feet.
• Bedroom Two definitely offers privacy from the main living area. It is 210 sq. feet. It has its own full bathroom and TV. It can be made up as two twin beds OR as one King-size bed, BUT NOT BOTH. It has its own air conditioning unit and thermostat. Through the large windows enjoy the striking view of the ocean and west Maui. The picture windows do have a mirrored, reflective coating on them, however, in full disclosure, under certain lighting conditions, it is possible for people walking by to see into the room. Floor-to-ceiling drapes easily provide privacy when needed.
• The living room has a queen-size sofa bed. We replaced the standard sofa bed mattress with a memory foam one which is actually comfortable for most adults, but also a great spot for kids. There are sliding doors between the sleeping area and the living room. They provide visual privacy but not “sound” privacy. The TV has Roku so you can stream your subscription services. A DVD player is also available as well as cable TV and free Wifi.
. A full kitchen ready for preparing and serving your own meals.

Couples have told us that although they didn’t need two bedrooms, they sure appreciated having them. Here are some of the benefits they mentioned:

• A separate workspace for making early morning calls to the mainland without disrupting the other person.
• A separate space for one person to be up and about when their “sleep cycle” doesn't match that of their partner. This can be even more common with jetlag for the first few days.
• The convenience of two bathrooms.

Although our home could accommodate six adults, we don't necessarily recommend it. It would probably feel overcrowded. It is better suited for up to four adults and two children. (Or two adults and four children, or three adults and three children.)

If you are looking for fun in the sand, surf and sun, then you are in the right place:
• Plenty of chaise lounges to use on the grassy area, or head to the beach with our folding chairs and umbrellas.
• Great snorkeling just steps away
• Boogie boarding and swimming
• Rent kayaks and SUP’s on-site as well as other gear
• Take a dip and hang out at the saltwater pool
• Walk along the beach for miles in either direction
• Enjoy open-air, oceanview dining from the onsite restaurant. (Closing for renovation April 2022)
• Explore tide pools
• Attend a yoga class. There is a studio on-site.
• BBQ'ing
• Take in an amazing sunset, and then watch the stars come out

*****Smoking and E-cigs*****
The state of Hawaii has some of the strictest anti-smoking laws in the US. There is no smoking allowed in any of the condos at the Mana Kai resort. Additionally no smoking is allowed on any of the lanai’s (balconies) nor in any of the public areas of the resort. Smoking is not allowed within 20 feet of any access point. In addition, smoking is prohibited on all public beaches and parks, restaurants, or retail businesses. There are however some designated smoking areas on the grounds of the Mana Kai resort. Penalty for smoking in the condo or on the lanai is $500. Registration Number: GE-172-274-5856-01,+TA-172-274-5856-01,+390040230035
