Couldn't ask for more….location and complex amenities are great. New WiFi system installed and worked well. As stated by others, there is no air conditioning, but it is the tropics and trade winds, ceiling and floor fans helped. Read other reviews and come to your own conclusions. We were satisfied with the condo and the bargain rental rate. Thanks, Donald and Anne, for sharing your slice of paradise.
Donald was very easy to reach by email and very friendly. He sent a great pdf with all of the information for staying at the property about a week prior to our stay.
We loved our stay! Everything was clean and well maintained (though towels were a bit musty). We had everything we needed to do a little light cooking, and it was great to be able to wash our beach stuff before leaving for home. We also appreciated that there was a beach umbrella we could borrow. The pool, hot tub, and grill area were especially awesome after a long day of sightseeing and beaching :-)
We would LOVE to stay here again. Thanks Donald!
Ubicación perfecta de la casa para hacer excursiones por toda la isla. No usamos la piscina pero estaba al lado.
Teníamos sabana, toallas, material para la playa y todas las comodidades. Lavadora y secadora y la cocina con todos los electrodomésticos.
Echamos de menos aire acondicionado y la señal de la wifi era un poco lenta. Por lo demás todo perfecto.
Terraza para desayunar, parking en la puerta... Todo genial
It was very nice . Very affordable. Donald kept in touch constantly. The pool area is great. Short walking distance to beach. Fantastic sunsets. Always parking available. We had no problem hooking up to wi fi. The kitchen had everything you could need. The location is close to everything in Kihei. Coconuts is the best "hole in the wall" fish taco place around. Only a few blocks down! Aloha!
The condo at Luana Kai was perfect for what we needed-- a place to crash at night. Location was great for day adventures and was convenient to highways for traveling to other parts of the island. We typically were gone for the entire day so we didn't use the condo for much other than sleeping. However, the TV wasn't working and internet was hit or miss. So watching a movie to wind down at the end of a long day was only possible because we brought our laptop. Also, there was a very loud rooster that woke the neighborhood up every day at about 3am. Those lucky enough with A/C in the unit probably didn't have as big of a problem with this as they slept with windows closed. The pool and BBQ area was nice with a recent renovation being apparent.
All in all you probably couldn't find a more affordable place in this location in Maui, but you get what you pay for. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
Very well appointed condo--there was even mayo in the fridge. Located in a very convenient area--close to stores and to various sightseeing points. The wi fi did not work for either of us (if that is important to you). Not the most attractive place I've stayed in Hawaii (too much dark brown), but definitely clean and functional. Very gracious host by email.
Donald was excellent to deal with as a host. He was very friendly and available for any questions.
The condo is very well equipped in a lovely resort. All the amenities you can need for a comfortable stay. We would rent this condo again!

About the Host, Donald
Anne & I are both retired. I spent 36 years in the New York City Fire Department and retired as a captain in 2004. Anne spent 18 years working for Pan Am Airlines and stopped working for them after we had our second daughter.
While working for the airlines we did a lot of traveling and our favorite place was Hawaii, Maui in particular, so in 1989 we decided to purchase a condo at the Luana Kai in Kihei.
