  • We had a WONDERFUL time staying in Donald and Anne’s condo at the Luana Kai. Before we even got there, Donald and Anne were great about corresponding with us and making sure that we had all the information that we needed, and any/all questions answered, before we got there (and during our stay). The condo itself was wonderful, clean, and as described with everything you could want/need (TV, Wi-Fi, washer/dryer, etc). The key pad While in Maui, we spent a lot of time at the beach and most of the beach gear we needed, or would have otherwise had to pick up at the ABC Store, was there for us to use including beach chairs, towels, and a cooler. This made day trips and hanging out at the beach SO much easier/cheaper and we really appreciated that Donald and Anne had made these supplies available. While hanging around the Luana Kai in the evenings, we really enjoyed reading on the lanai (shaded by bamboo which my husband thought was cool), swimming/lounging by the pool, walking along the beach, and barbequing. There is a tennis court so next time we plan on bring our rackets. The other guests at the complex where very friendly and it was never too busy that you couldn’t find a lounge chair or barbeque when you needed one. The Luana Kai is also well located near a farmers market (next to the ABC store) and AMAZING shave ice stand just minutes down the road. It is also close to several great beaches for snorkeling. All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay and wouldn’t hesitate staying there again or recommending it to others. We had a very relaxing and wonderful time at Donald and Anne's condo at the Luana Kai.

  • We had a wonderful 10 days at Donald's condo.
    The condo is perfectly located with easy access to shops, beaches, some restaurants, and activities. We loved how close the beach was to the condo, and were thankful for the beach supplies provided for us (chairs, sand mats, towels). The beach was quiet during our stay, and we even saw a turtle very near the shore! The pool area was perfect for relaxing. There were always enough lounging chairs in the sun or shade. The condo itself was very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. It was nice to have the washer/dryer, the full kitchen, and the BBQs. Having a car helped us enjoy the rest of the island too. We would recommend this condo for people looking for a laid-back, relaxing vacation.

  • My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing week at this mellow complex. Everything is clean and well maintained.
    Our days were spent going off for a morning yoga class, stopping at the Times market for fresh provisions for a nice dinner in the condo kitchen or by poolside grills. The lovely warm ocean is just across the lawn. Many afternoons by the pool and hot tub, where you can meet lots of Canadians escaping the zero temps at home.
    Very family friendly. Another group was having a reunion of about 40 people.

  • Very nice apartement which I can highly recommend!!
    Donald made the condo a nearly perfect place to stay. It´s everything there you need. Laundry, lots of stuff for the beach etc. etc.
    There is also a supermarket and a lot of restaurants in the area.

  • There's not much of an ocean view from the condo but the beach is steps away. The condo is fully equipped for eating in. The barbecue setup by the pool works well. Bonus features of the unit included free WiFi, a BluRay player, great appliances (washer, drier, dishwasher) and access to easily portable beach chairs and umbrella. The complex is very family oriented so be prepared for lots of kids in the pool area if you're visiting during peak vacation times. We were able to walk to a grocery store and a few restaurants, but most of the action is further south in Kihei if that's what you're looking for. Overall, we were very happy with the 9 days we spent in this unit.

  • We enjoyed a 25 day stay, with the wonderfully breezy lanai being our favorite perch when "at home." Being at the north end of our favorite island region, Kihei, well-located Luana Kai makes visiting sites throughout the island quite efficient. Donald & Anne's well-appointed unit made condo cooking quite convenient, though we encourage all to try Kihei's good eateries. Drive south to one of our favorites, beachfront Sarento's, for a tasty & luxurious breakfast on the beach, with the tip that you can order half portions of the four-egg omelets! Or if you have a big appetite & money to burn, go for dinner, including spectacular sunsets. For lazy beach days, we also headed south to the Kamaole beaches. However, we often ended the day with a walk along the rocky beach just beyond the green at Luana Kai, where we met strolling, running, or dog walking locals, all of us there to enjoy the sunset. We'd stay at this condo again & hope you enjoy it.

About
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.
