Mana Kai 306 is a 5-star luxury condominium situated directly on Keawakapu Beach, the most famous beach in Maui. Located on the ocean side of the building, it has two master suites, each with spectacular ocean views.

Wake up in the morning to the sound of waves, grab a cup of coffee and sit on your private lanai overlooking the beach. Look to your left and watch the sun rise over Haleakala volcano while you check your email using our free wireless internet. At the end of the day look the other way and watch magnificent sunsets between Lanai and Kaho'olawe every evening sipping a cocktail. In between you can watch the whales (5,000 spent the spring here in Maui this year) or just sit and watch the paddle boarders, sunbathers and snorkelers down below.

Amenities include:

** Breathtaking views down the beach, enhanced with our brand new floor to ceiling electric solar shades that provide black out darkness at night and filtered light during the day. With no need for curtains to be stacked against the walls, you have 25% more views than other condos. We are one of only two condos in the resort with this feature.

** Full-sized kitchen with granite counter tops and top of the line appliances (Bosch range, dishwasher and microwave, GE full-size refrigerator/freezer) and all the dishes, silverware pots and pans you’d expect in a luxury condo

**Two master bedroom suites with king size beds that come with Comphy spa sheets

** Two ensuite bathrooms, with walk in showers equipped with L’Occitane bath products and Kassatex towels

**Corner sofa sectional located across from a custom designed and built TV cabinet at the foot of the bed that swivels 180 degrees so you can watch TV while sitting on the sofa or laying in bed

** Upgraded air conditioning system with temperature controls in each bedroom

** Keyless lock system means you never have to worry about locking yourself out or losing a key at the beach

** Chairs and an umbrella are provided and stored in the beach closet by the front door

** All beautifully redecorated and outfitted with new bed and bath linens in the Fall of 2022

Keawakapu Beach is routinely voted one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii and is home to multi-million dollar homes down its half mile length. Because of its north/south orientation, waves rarely break over a couple feet, so it is extremely kid friendly. Snorkeling off our point is some of the best on the island.

The resort features a beautiful beachfront swimming pool and numerous vacation conveniences. Although we currently DO NOT have a restaurant on premises, a new restaurant remodel is underway with the anticipated opening in late 2023. The new operators are Bill Terry and Peter Merriman, owners of the popular Monkeypod restaurants and Merriman's in Napili. We believe that the new restaurant will be the best on our side of the island.

An on-sight activity desk can help with excursions such as a sunset dinner cruise, a luau, snorkeling off Molokini or riding bikes down Haleakala. The Surf Shack rents stand-up paddle boards and kayaks for the ocean enthusiast. And for you yoga types, Maui Yoga Path offers daily yoga classes taught by renowned Iyengar yoga instructor, Deni Roman. In 2016 the resort remodeled the basement of the building and built a state-of-the-art work out facility and a business center. There are also outdoor barbecues for our guest's exclusive use.

The picture down the beach was taken on a typical late afternoon from the balcony. You can see why couples get married right on the beach several times a week--it is a magical and memorable place, and it is waiting for you and your family.

So why stay in 306?

You have many choices when you are deciding where to stay in the Mana Kai. All 98 condominiums have identical floor plans; many have been recently remodeled; and some are closer to the ocean or on higher floors than others. Why do we love ours?

Generally, condos that are on higher floors can accommodate higher rental rates. We are slightly contrarian to this view. While you would want a top floor penthouse if you were staying in downtown Manhattan, we believe that higher up only makes you further from the sounds of the waves and the view down the beach. Being on the third floor is just right. We also have unobstructed ocean views in our back bedroom where many other units look into the stairwells or the elevator shafts.

As you can see from the pictures, we completely remodeled our condo when we bought it, and have made many additional improvements over the years, most recently in the Fall of 2022. Deanne is a designer in California, and her choice of colors, art and furnishings are unique and beautiful.

We live here part of the year so it is more than a rental property to us. We buy the kind of things you would put in your house: high quality dishes and silverware, pots and pans and kitchen utensils. We would like you to think about our condo as your home away from home.

We recently upgraded our cleaning practices, hiring 967Attache Services as our on-island property manager and cleaning company. Linens are professionally laundered between stays and the unit is thoroughly cleaned paying special attention to all touch surfaces. We have also recently upgraded to include L’Occitane soap products, Kassatek towels and Comphy sheets, which we replace each year to make sure they are perfect for your stay.

Don’t just take our word for it—check out our 111 (and counting) 5-star reviews on VRBO and see what other guests are saying. You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Please email me if you have any questions. Mahalo.

We stayed here 3 days before moved to Marriott Waliea. I told my husband i enjoy this vrbo balcony view compare to the one in Marriott. And has better beach too. So close to the ocean. Highly recommended this place.

Maui is a gift we give our family year after year. This condo has been one of our favorites. We truly enjoyed our stay. Everything was better than advertised. Looking forward to our next stay.

The Mana Kai is one of the only places in the Kehei area that is right on the beach, with a nice pool and lawn next to the beach. This location is especially good for families with young children. This unit is very nice, well equipped, and communication with the owner was excellent. Highly recommend.

Scott’s condo was perfect for our 4 night stay in Kihei. The location was great, right on the beach and just a short drive from tons of great restaurants and shops. The unit is exactly as described and as shown in the pictures. The complex had a small resort feel and was kept up very well. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were well stocked with all the essentials plus more. Communication was superb. I would definitely recommend!!

This is a wonderful condo with all the amenities needed in one of the best locations in Kihei. It is beautifully decorated and furnished. The host is always very responsive and helpful. This was our second stay here, and we plan to return!

This condo is the perfect setting for a relaxing , rejuvenating vacation. The condo is situated on a lovely sand beach that your balcony looks out on with the sound of the waves as your music. You can walk from your beach all the way to Waimea enjoying the scenery, stopping to swim or stopping by the “Whale’sTale” for a smoothie and snack. You can also walk into Kihei easily and explore the shops and restaurants. The beds and linens were very comfortable and one bedroom has a slider that opens up to the lanai . The communication with the owner was excellent and we plan to return to this condo again as soon as we can !!

We had a great time in Maui thanks to our stay here! We traveled with a toddler who did not take kindly to the time change so it was so nice to be mere steps away from the beach- it made it easy to do short beach and pool trips before coming back upstairs for a break. The blackout blinds were also incredible! Great location and amenities, would definitely stay here again!

This spot is ideal. We had direct access to a beautiful stretch of beach that never got too crowded. Nice pool and staff, very relaxed atmosphere. Very kid friendly.The view from the condo is gorgeous and the unit had everything we needed. It’s a very short drive to town for food and supplies and the boat ramp for snorkeling trips is just half a mile away. There was construction noise just below us, as the restaurant is being remodeled, which was a bit disturbing. Also the gym was closed due to the construction, which was not mentioned until after we booked, so that was disappointing. But all in all, the condo and our experience was great and I’d highly recommend staying here!

We cannit say enough about this property! The proximity to the water and the views were beyond compare. The condo itself was beautifully furnished with comfortable beds, great kitchen ammenities, and best oceanfront balcony you could imagine! We traveled around to a lot of different areas, and our entire family agreed that this was the BEST beach we saw, with beautiful soft sand, great reeg snorkking. Not sure if we will lucky enough to be travelling back to Maui anytime soon, but if do, we would definately stay here again!

The Mana Kai is a a treasure! We enjoyed the pool, lawn and access to our favorite beach on Maui. Convenient central location for exploring the whole island, excellent 808 General Store on premises. This unit has a beautiful view, good proximity to laundry and elevators and is comfortably furnished with all you need to settle in. They were doing quite a bit of maintenance in the lobby and parking lot during our stay, but those were minor inconveniences. Mahalo!

Of all the years we’ve been staying at the Mana Kai, this is one of the best condos we’ve ever stayed in! It is beautifully decorated and is fully stocked with all the amenities we needed during our stay. Not to mention, the view is incredible! We can’t speak highly enough of this condo and are already counting the days until our next stay here. Highly recommend—thank you!

Loved the condo, property and the beach! Enjoyed our stay in 306 very much and will definitely stay again for our next trip to Maui!

Great experience! This condo was exactly as advertised and literally steps from the beach!! The view was amazing! The condo was very well appointed and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again. Pretty sure this beach is one of the best in Maui for kids. There was enough surf to boogie board but not so much that the kids couldn't play in the water.


Susan A.
August 2022
The location and beach are fabulous! You can walk for hours down the beach, though the one right in front of the Mana Kai is the best. Sunsets are gorgeous. The unit was perfect for a family of four - comfortable beds, good privacy, well stocked kitchen, etc. Easy communication with the owner. It will be a huge bonus once the restaurant on property reopens. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend!

My family stayed at this condo in July 2022. Everything about the condo was wonderful! The location is right on the beach and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the waves roll in. The condo is well-furnished, in excellent condition, and had everything that we needed for our stay. The property owner responded quickly to any questions that we had. I highly recommend this property!

You can’t beat the views at this place, as well as the easy access to the beach just footsteps away. Water was magnificent for swimming with lots of reef and rocky structures along the shore for a truly fantastic snorkeling experience. We saw plenty of colorful fish and swam with a giant sea turtle which might just be the coolest thing I’ve ever done! Condo was spacious, comfortable, and had modern upgrades. Upon arrival, we noticed it wasn’t cleaned thoroughly so I contacted the owner who sent a cleaning services to the room promptly. Some linens such as pillows and comforters were a bit worn and could use a refresh/update. It was a bummer to find out just a few weeks before our arrival that the on-site restaurant and general store were closed for construction. These are amenities we were really looking forward to, but we did have a rental car and there was plenty on shopping and food options within walking distance. Overall, we were very pleased with our accommodations and would definitely visit this property again.

The location and overall accommodations were great. The beach got pretty crowded but not a deterrent. The place looks exactly like the photos. Very nice and had everything we needed for the stay. Would stay here again.

We were so impressed with this hidden gem. It was clean, well appointed, comfortable. Most importantly had the most amazing view from the balcony.. we couldn’t take enough photos. Scott was very responsive and friendly. The beach was quiet, pool was relaxing and very clean. The condo management was very friendly and accommodating. Exactly what we were looking for and made our first trip to Maui very memorable. We would definitely stay here again.

This was a lovely home for us this past week. There were 4 adults in our group so it worked well. Loved being right on the ocean and listen to the waves all night. It is smaller yet worked well for our group. Bed and linens were very nice quality. Very clean. Great location to access and travel the island. A most generous host! I would rent again.


Julie T.

What an incredible property with a an absolutely spectacular view! What a delight to listen to the crashing surf, look out over the stunning sea, and be steps from the pool, lawn, and beach. The unit was thoroughly stocked including beach items and the owner provided a great deal of helpful information regarding local restaurants and activities. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Highly recommend!

This was our second time staying at Mana Kai Maui and it was fantastic. The condo was perfect for our family, we had our 3 year old daughter and 3 month old son with us. Amazing views, plenty of space, comfy beds, and Scott was very responsive to any questions we had. We will stay here again for sure. The actual property grounds were great, very clean and such great staff. The elevators had some issues but luckily we were on the 3rd floor so not too many stairs. The restaurant and little store were closed and under renovations which was disappointing. The construction noise wasn’t ideal but they did their best to not disrupt the guests. I’m excited to see what restaurants are there when we go back!

Building seems to be in transition. One elevator out due to ongoing upgrade. No restaurant on property. Pool was clean and pleasant. Everything was clean and comfortable. Had tried to sleep with sliding doors open but since it was next to public area of the beach, morning was noisy with early beach goers.

We had a great time at this unit. The location is everything and very family friendly. We liked to sit on the balcony and enjoy the view of the beach and palm trees while eating or having a drink in the evenings. The owner is extremely kind and responsive. Thank you!

The condo provided great accommodations for my family of four. The view was beautiful and the location was very convenient for a family with kids. Easy access to the beach and pool. The condo was stocked with all the items we needed for a day at the beach. The owner provided a lot of useful information and was great to work with. We greatly appreciated Scott's flexibility when it looked like we might need to cancel due to our childrens' school Covid restrictions. Luckily we didn't, and had a wonderful vacation!

You can’t beat this South Maui rental with direct access to the beach and a heated pool overlooking the beach. We travelled with a 4 year old and he didn’t want to leave because he enjoyed everything about this location! This property has everything you need for the perfect vacation and Scott is a great host. When we return to Maui, we hope to stay here again.

We loved staying right on the beach, with only one other condo complex on it. Loved having coffee out on lanai every morning !Loved our location, farther away from all the hustle & bustle but plenty of places to eat & shop in Kihei! WE walked the 4-6 mile long beach every morning. Perfect place to sit & watch the stunning sunsets every night too! Laundry on each floor, which we needed since staying almost 2 weeks. Scott always got right back to me, when I kept adding days to stay. We will be back! Thank you

We had a wonderful time on our vacation staying at this property. The location is in the middle of Kihei, which has a variety of restaurants and stores nearby. The unit is as advertised- newly upgraded and with spectacular views. Scott was very good at responding to our messages and the check in and check out process was easy. He even provided us with a nice list of recommendations for what to do in Maui and the best places to eat around the area.

Great view and nice apt. Wish Hulu would have worked for the front living room TV. Was challenging making the remote worse since the were a little busted up and used but got it working. Fan switch in bathroom didn't work thought that was strange and the shower head spread everywhere until a controlled spot like other showers. However had a great time and loved everything thanks again will be contacting you in the future

Everything as described, check-in process was very easy and parking is convenient. Scott gave easy to follow detailed instructions with local recommendations. The location of Mana Kei provides superb views and is easy to access multiple sites on the island. The unit itself was great, it had everything we needed, comfortable beds and beach accessories. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this unit to friends.
