Beautiful views

This place was the best and really made our vacation amazing. Beautiful views, comfortable, and had everything we needed. We’ll want to visit again!

Affordable price

This place is great. It’s on a private beach and you can listen to the waves at night as you lay to rest. It’s central to the entire island so nothing is too far away. Shopping is close, beaches everywhere and Haleakala park all in reasonable distances. We loved this location so much and such an affordable price you cannot beat it!

Perfect views

Beautiful, perfect views, steps to the beach, short drive to multiple touristy towns and beaches. Staff and all guests seemed to be super nice. Stay here, you won’t regret it!

Home away from home

Perfect home away from home stocked with everything you need but food. Short walk past the gardenias to the beach. Nice sandy beach with no coral or lava rocks to worry about even in the water. We saw two turtles while swimming along Sugar Beach, one by Kihei Kai. Friendly property cats and small lizards. I enjoyed grabbing the fallen plumerias on my morning walks. Within walking distance to the ABC store, farmers market (w/local jewelry), coffee shop and Hawaiian Shave Ice. The property was nice and quiet everyone was friendly. We will be recommending Kihei Kai to friends and family and will return!

Perfect vacation spot

It was a perfect vacation spot for us. Nice Ocean views from living & bedroom. Nice spot for long morning and/or evening beach walk. Very spacious and very clean. You won’t go wrong with this one.

Wonderful stay

We had a wonderful stay. The condo was clean with sweet touches such as local chocolates, coffee and lotions. So close to the beach and restaurants in Kihei.

Kihei Kai is wonderful. It’s location could not be better. Just a few steps from the unit, and you have Sugar Beach right in your backyard. It is a few minutes walk to a Farmer’s Market, ABC store, Sugar Beach Bakery and Ululani’s Shave Ice! It’s central to everything -Road to Hana, Haleakala, Wailea, Iao Valley, and Lahaina. The unit had everything we needed. Both the grounds and unit were very clean. A boogie board and beach chairs were provided. Air conditioning a plus as some condos in the area have none in the units. Parking was also plenty. It was nice staying at a smaller property as it felt more peaceful and homey. Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

Kihei Kai was one of the best airbnb’s we’ve stayed at. The place was gorgeous, fresh renovated, quiet with easy access to the beach. They were stress free and professional to deal with and so nice. Do not hesitate to book!

A gem!

Kihei Kai is a gem! I’ve been staying on Maui for decades (mostly in Kihei) and this place checks all the boxes of what I am looking for. We had a lovely time and hope to stay again for the years to come!

May 2021


Kihei Kai is superb. Paula was very informative throughout the process. This is a great place to stay! 15 min drive from airport! Walking distance to the beach, literally you hear the beach waves at night and when you wake up. Near all kinds of restaurants and a Longs Drugs in case you forgot to pack something. Never had a problem with parking. The kitchen comes with everything you may need on this trip. Small pool, but great for our 5-yr old kid who is learning to swim. Only check-in issue I had is that I didn’t know I had to twist lock after inserting the passcode. I did request onsite manager’s help and they came right away. Other than that completely safe distance check-in process. Would highly recommend and we will return on any Maui trips.

Excellent location

Excellent location. Easy to get anywhere. Super close to the beach – the waves put you to sleep!

Private beach access

Amazing location with private beach access. King size bed sleeps two people comfortably plus a fold out sofa bed. Wi-Fi and cable is available and two AC units to keep cool at night. Unit was clean and the view is spectacular. Laundry facility is available close to the unit. Parking was always available but you must register. Onsite maintenance for any issues you might have and stores are nearby. You will not be disappointed. Host was attentive and cared about our needs. Highly recommend! Our first trip to Hawaii and it was the greatest experience!

Absolutely amazing

This spot was absolutely amazing. Super clean. The lanai is such a nice spot to hang out on. Quick walk from door to parking lot. Beach is pristine. Location is great because beach is never too crowded. Do not hesitate to book. Communication with Paula was super easy and she just has the friendliest voice. Amazing place and will definitely be back!

April 2021

Excellent property

This is an excellent property, very clean, great location, and beautiful lush grounds. We enjoyed the patio watching epic sunsets, and is conveniently located to enjoy all that Maui has to offer. Thanks for an amazing stay!

Very quiet

We loved our stay at Kihei Kai. It was the perfect hub for a few days of surfing, kiting and mountain biking. steps from the beach and beautiful views! Located close to downtown but far enough away that we didn’t feel overwhelmed by the crowds. Very quiet. wonderful place to rest and recharge in between adventuring. Mahalo, Paula!

April 2021

Secluded little paradise

Kihei Kai is a secluded little paradise. I slept with a window open to hear the waves crashing and can’t recommend it highly enough — definitely planning to be back!

March 2021

Well equipped

Stayed here for a week and it was the perfect place to explore Maui from. It’s a nice unit and is very well equipped. The beachfront location is awesome.

March 2021

Super clean

Great location for exploring all areas of Maui, super clean, loved being right on the beach and great prompt communications.

January 2021

Perfectly Cozy

We absolutely loved our stay at Kihei Kai. Unit 24 was perfectly cozy for our family of 3. We visited during a windy week, so it was nice having the small pool onsite for our baby to swim in. One of our favorite features of our unit was the lanai with lounge furniture that looks out to the pool and the ocean in the distance. The kitchen is well stocked, if you need to cook. We used it everyday for our baby, used the portable coolers to bring food to the beach and even grilled meat by the pool one day. Paula was wonderful checking in on us during our stay and Gary was always around to give us a friendly hello when coming across him on site. We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

April 2021

Great stay!

Our particular unit was facing straight on to ocean. Saw whales from lanai every morning. Unit was very well updated!

March 2020

Cozy & clean

Cozy and easy access to the beach and everything. Simple and clean and quiet.

Loved it!

Great and friendly other people staying there.

Kihei Kai “A quiet serene setting”

This property was close to the beach. It’s not posh, it’s not a dive, it’s just right for normal blue collar people like ourselves. Cooking utensils and kitchen were adequate. If you want shade get to the grassy area early as it is a popular spot. Whales were jumping daily and the AC pumps! The “working cats” made it feel like home for us as we have two cats at home. Smokey, Timothy (who we named, is a white and mixed color cat without a collar) and Kolina are our favorite on property cats. We like animals more than people. People were inviting and friendly but my girlfriend and I wanted our own time together to connect and enjoy. Thanks for keeping the property maintained and beautiful Paula and staff.

Honeymoon at the Kihei Kai

The beach is excellent, also a clean pool to swim in if the surf was too rough. Friendly staff that invited us to their shrimp boil! Walking distance to the bus stop and convenience store. I didn’t like that our vacation came to an end 😄

February 2020

Right on the beach

Everyone was very friendly. Immaculate, clean. Loved everything about the place and I will return.

January 2020

View to die for

Amazing location, great value. Right on the beach, beautiful sunsets.

January 2020

We will be back had a great time!

Kihei Kai was true to its word about being ocean front!

December 2019

Great location

The location was great and it was clean and well maintained. Close to Kihei and easy to get to Wailuku or Lahaina and other places on the island of Maui. Also, if you like swimming in the ocean, you are only steps from the beach. The staff was great. The manager took excellent care of the premises and the property. Problems were of first priority. We really thought they did a wonderful job. The managers are great people!!

A place to call home

Everything was honestly great about this place and I’m so glad we chose to stay in Kihei from other places on the island. Calm waters are at the doorstep, a little lawn to sunbake and bbq patio. We also had a balcony and weren’t disturbed by any noises. I feel asleep and woke to the sound of ocean waves. Staying in a condo is so much more convenient, personal, and accessible than a hotel and it felt like home for the 6 days we were there! Paula and her staff are doing a wonderful job – no complaints!

November 2019

Love this place and would definitely be back!

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the sweetest lady, Paula in the offices Margarita is the bomb. She came and brought us to our room and showed us around. Margarita was very helpful in suggesting places and things to do see and do. We absolutely would recommend this place and would come back hands down. Location is key…this location is perfect. Close to everything, centrally located. Airport just 15 minutes away. The grounds and pool were kept nice and neat. Right on the beach.

October 2019


Beautiful, super clean, ocean front condo, with a private beach feel.

August 2019


It was an AMAZING location. “Beach view” isn’t really a thing, we could only see it from the bedroom corner window… but the fact that it’s a 35 second walk to the beach completely makes up for it. You can hear the crashing waves as you nap and it’s tucked away from people traffic.

Kihei Kai rocks!

We LOVED our stay at Kihei Kai. Maui is beautiful and instantaneously relaxing. We loved it so much we have already booked for 2020! The staff was so welcoming, the other condo visitors were fun and full spirited. Many visitors were also regulars. Everyone made our vacation memorable and Maui is AMAZING!

March 2019


The location of the condo was AMAZING- we had never stayed in Kihei before and were blown away by Sugar Beach which is literally steps away, it’s close to Lahaina, and the country side, there is a coffee spot walking distance that was unreal, and a lunch spot we fell in love with. The office staff was AMAZING, and the tenants were unbelievably welcoming!

February 2019

Staying here again!

We loved the resort feel without feeling crowded. It truly was amazing having the beach just steps away where you could relax while sipping wine. People would be playing yard games and others walking the beach. The restaurant opened up to the beach and provided a musician every night that was absolutely amazing to hear. There really wasn’t anything that stuck out as not liking about the property. Location was great.

October 2018

Great home!

Great location on the beach! Family dinners on the patio. We’ve been coming here for 30 years. It’s still the same!! Best deal in town. 15 minutes to Wailea and 30 minutes to Lahaina!!

Perfect for couples or families

The property managers are worth the trip here! You meet Paula and you feel like she’s known you for years. Very friendly. We stayed in unit #18 which was perfect for our two kids. One bedroom and a foldout couch was all we needed. Fully stocked kitchen if you chose to stay in. Small but clean pool. Access to the beach, which though is small, it is beautiful. The rooms were a bit darker, they could be brightened, and a few things were showing their age. But while its not frilly and pretentious, it feels very welcoming. Very close to everything. Definitely will stay again.

Family apartments

These condos are in an older part. It is very small and manageable. 2 floors. We had Condo # 3 on the lower floor. Fantastic! While having breakfast on the terrace we had a view of the sea, falling asleep we heard the sound of the sea. Kitchen very big with everything! Pool towels, 2 beach chairs, diving goggles, etc. One arrives and feels immediately comfortable. Ideal location for excursions! Unfortunately, the sea is not very nice to look through the dark sand! Very dark and cloudy! For children ideal point for bodyboarding – waves but not too big! The pool is small and deep – almost always had it for us alone!

A taste of old Hawaii. Back again!

My wife and I loved our visit so much last time that we came back and booked the same condo we did before. Ron and Paula are still there and as friendly and helpful as ever getting us settled in. We end spotted a resident working cat taking a nap on our lanai and was friendly enough to let us pet him. If you want a taste of what’s it’s like owning a quiet condo on the beach, this is the place for you. We could hear sugar beach from our lanai, but we enjoyed how quiet it was otherwise.

Wonderful stay

My son and I were able to do all the major activities in a few days due to its great central location, even with a beach onsite. Also a large covered lanai for wonderful meals outdoors. Well equipped with modern conveniences inside the unit. Would have wished for a firmer bed but really no other suggestions.

Wonderful and relaxing

Had a great visit

We enjoyed the beach and weather. Condo was pretty nice, not 5 star but we did not pay 5 star prices. People were friendly and social. The pool, while small, was nice to splash around in too. Enjoyed the tropical breezes while reading!

March 2018

Quiet Kihei Condo

From reading other reviews, I knew ahead of time that these condos were dated so there was no surprise there. The units and property are all very well kept and there is a nice lawn and small beach to enjoy the views and an evening cocktail. The Kihei Kai management is phenomenal! We had a couple of issues that came up and Ron got on them immediately (even helping us with our ineptness with TV remotes!). The friendliness of everyone that we met there; management, owners and travelers, was unlike anywhere else we have stayed on Maui. I would absolutely stay at Kihei Kai again!

Great location, centrally located, great value for the $

This is an older property and the unit (#13) we rented showed its age. There are some things, like the kitchen that are outdated however the furnishings are current and the unit was very comfortable. The location is great and centrally located on Maui in north Kihei. This property is also right on the beach so beach access is great and they also have a pool. Although the maximum temperature we saw was about 80F the 2 window units were adequate. Mornings were nice and you could open the windows if you wanted. That was at about 65F. Overall great value for the money! We were out exploring and doing things so we really only used the condo for sleeping and a little resting. I would stay again.

Fully equipped, even a beach chair, blender, everything you can imagine … Very central to go to every corner of Maui, calm beach in front. I arrived on a Sunday and my key and directions were at the reception waiting for me. I did not use the pool because who needs one on Maui ??? Loved it !!

December 2017

The best holiday I have had in years

Close to the ocean, cooked our own meals and took it one day at a time. Large single bedroom (sofa bed in the lounge room) cabins, entirely self contained with nothing between you and the beautiful Sugar Beach. Take off your watch, switch off the phone and grab a book to read on the lawn while you watch the ocean and sunset.

Hawaiian Relaxation

This condo is right on the beach (4 miles+) beautiful sunsets. Small pool to cool down before walking to the beach. The rooms are spacious and quiet. The condo is fully equipped with everything you would need for a getaway from it all vacation. The resident manager’s Paula and Ron are very helpful.

Very nice condo

We stayed 5 days at unit 21) ! The condo was very clean, well equiped and very close to the beach. It is a good central location if you want to explore the island of Maui. We had a very warm welcome 🙂 We highly recommend it !

Best find on the internet

Our rental was amazing. Very nicely decorated and appointed with all the amenities you could want. The place was very clean and very comfortable. The complex is older and dwarfed by two taller and fancier places on either side, but unless “new” is all you want, this place has it all. The pool, although in pictures looks like a regular pool, is very small but clean and refreshing. but it is the beach that is the selling point. Only steps from your condo is a lovely lawn area with umbrellas and lots of loungers, chairs and a BBQ. 10 more steps away is a beautiful sand beach, offering lots of walking in either direction. shops and restaurants a short beach walk away, or shorter drive. The sunset is lovely and although the waves can get big, were just enough to enjoy some bobbing time in the ocean. The location is central to all the amazing sites in Maui that we participated in. Parking is included and you do need a car. We will DEFINITELY go back to this condo if we ever travel to Hawaii again and if Hawaii wasn’t so darn far away, I’d consider buying here.

Nice place right on the beach

At first glance, the place doesn’t look like much however the inside (we had unit #5) is spacious (living room with sofa bed, kitchen, bedroom with king size bed and bathroom and a big balcony with a table, 4 chairs, 2 outdoor sofas and sometimes a cat), very clean, fully equipped and seemed to have been renovated recently. The location is also nice; 20 minutes from the airport, and just a few minutes from most everything else. It seems that there’s also a good snorkeling spot on the beach about a mile to the west, but we didn’t have time to go there (too many things to do in Maui and not enough time).

August 2017

Charming, Affordable, Perfect for Us

This place is a favorite! Comfortable, impeccably clean unit with air conditioning. Plenty of parking; the softest sand imaginable ( Sugar Beach) and the beautiful ocean right at the end of a walkway. Tropical flowers everywhere, helpful and friendly staff. There’s a palm tree outside the office with dancing fairy lights after dark- pure magic! If you need a crystalline massive swimming pool or are a smoker, this isn’t the place for you. For us, it couldn’t be better.

August 2017

Home away from home

Our condo was clean, homey, and had everything we needed to be comfortable and to cook and enjoy the beaches. It is right on a quiet beach. The shady lanai and small swimming pool were a bonus. The managers were friendly and helpful. The location is convenient to the rest of Kihei and only a fifteen minute drive from the beaches of Wailea and Makena.

Great condo! One of the best I have ever stayed it!

My family and I recently visited Maui and we decided to stay in this condo and it was a great choice! This condo had everything you could ever need and the location was stunning! It was clean and everything was up to date! Right on sugar beach (which is great swimming beach for families, nice calm waves) it was a great place to people watch while you sit back and watch the sun rise with coffee or watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Something that was a huge thing to me was that it had hot water! I know it seems like a given for a condo to have hot water; since you are paying so much to stay there!! duhhh!! but my family and I stayed in a condo on Oahu and it did NOT have hot water, and we had to shower in like an outdoor camp shower. So, low and behold when this place had hot water, I was sold. The other thing that was amazing was the noise from the ocean. Even with the door and all the windows closed you could hear the ocean crashing and it was so soothing (but was super loud with the windows open; nice during the day but made it a little hard to sleep at night. Natures noise maker, made a little too much noise lol) This condo complex is also within walking distance of an ABC store, a little bakery and a shave ice place, which was great for families Lastly, THERE WAS NO ROAD NOISE!! This was great place to stay in and we would definitely come back!

March 2017

Sunsets are Incredible

This was an amazing place! The unit was beautiful, and so close to the ocean. In the evenings, folks staying there line up their chairs to to watch the sunset. What a way to meet new friends! There is so much to do with town and activities being so close. We even joined the local outrigger club one day for a row in the ocean–incredible! We totally recommend this place. It was perfect!
