Many of our guests never feel the need for Air conditioning and enjoy leaving the windows open to listen to the ocean and feel the breeze. The Maui Kai is off the main road and traffic noise is nearly nonexistent when the bedroom windows are open. When the lanai doors are open all that is heard is the soothing sound of the ocean surf.

Having air conditioning and no road noise will assure a restful sleep and a quality vacation in the Maui Kai 805.

About Gary Pearce

Owner and daughters 2012 -

Gary Pearce purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gary Pearce chose Lahaina

It’s the perfect condo: Quite with a private lanai on the 8th story you are able to look down into the clear water and watch turtles and fish. 5 feet wider than most condos the extra space makes a difference it feels open and spacious.

Ten minutes from Lahaina and just a few from the restaurants of Whalers Village. Not to far from anything and the best unobstructed views of the ocean and outer islands on Maui

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I recently spent two weeks at suite 805 of the Maui Kai and it was everything we had hoped for! It was amazing to walk in and the room was exactly as depicted in the photos on line. There was ambient lighting, music playing and a lovely basket of goodies waiting for us along with a welcome note. What an introduction! We noticed immediately how clean and immaculate everything was. We had such fun exploring every drawer and cupboard to find everything one could want in a well maintained condo. My husband, who did all the cooking, was delighted to discover every little detail one would need in a kitchen was not overlooked. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept well with the a/C turned off and the screen doors open with the ceiling fans on. Like other reviews, it was soothing to hear the ocean waves crashing on shore. Of course the views from the large lanai did not disappoint! To say this condo has ocean front views is an understatement! One is literally overlooking the surf. The pictures are exactly what you see! And it is very private! We spent early mornings on the lanai - before the sun rose and gazed in awe at the glorious display of stars. Later in the afternoon, at sunset, the views again, were breathless. Dealing with Gary was a dream and he was very pleasant and accommodating. We felt he really cared. Restaurants, grocery stores and shopping malls are all within easy access. We walked down to Duke's one evening and drove into Lahaina to Ruth's Chris Steak House and took another short drive up to Kapalua to have sushi at the Ritz Carleton - each one first class. This was our first experience renting a condo on the Hawaiian Islands and we couldn't' be more impressed. We enjoyed snorkeling in the surf, but also loved the pool and the quiet atmosphere. We would definitely stay at the Maui Kai and specifically suite 805 again and would highly recommend this property to anyone who is considering a condo in West Maui.

Spectacular View!

  • 4 of 5

This is truly an oceanfront condo! The ocean is literally 50ft away. The a/c works perfectly and is wonderful! The mattress was great, we loved it! We truly enjoyed being there for 3 weeks! If you like to read and enjoy hard back books, they have an extensive collection and we left a couple in their library. All the people are very friendly. That being said, the condo does need a little TLC as some previous renters have said in their reviews. It is only the recliner has thread bare armrests, the rest of the furniture is perfect. The bath mats need to either be removed or replaced, the TV does not have HBO as advertised, however, we travel with our Amazon Firestick so we were able to watch movies, etc..at night. a new handle for the refrigerator needs to be ordered and installed, plus the burners on the stove need to be leveled. If you have any old coffee filters be sure to bring them, they only leave what is left by former renters. You must remember, "it's a rental!" I'm sure they have no desire to buy new appliances, etc, and risk an irresponsible renter's abuse. Other than those few things mentioned, we overlooked them all and enjoyed the condo and view immensely! Don't hesitate to spend time here!

Perfect condo in an amazing location!

This property is exactly as it appears online, & it's beautiful!! Not '5 star hotel' accommodations, but if you're looking for a great location & very comfortable surroundings this is the place! The whale watching from the deck is the best location on the island! We will definitely be back!!

Very disappointed!

  • 2 of 5

We have had 2 really good experiences here.....but, this time it was very disappointing.

The bed is in serious need of replacement, no handle on the refrigerator, dirty and run down furniture, same floor mats in the bathroom and I do not think they have ever been washed.

Shower ceiling had dirt and mold.

Very sad!

The ocean on our doorstep, being on the 8th floor and having a huge lanai to watch “Whale TV” !

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, awesome sunsets and we watched whales jumping and spy hopping every day! We didn’t even have dinner out because we were afraid of missing something. The location can’t be beat and the apt was definitely well appointed. The only thing that kept us from putting it at 5 stars was the apt is a bit dated and could use some paint touch ups as well as it could have been a bit cleaner. But don’t let that stop you from renting this condo the views can’t be beat!

Very nice place. Clean, everything you need. Fabulous location and view.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks. It was a great experience. The building is kept up nicely and everybody was very pleasant. The unit itself has been updated at some point and was nicely done. It has a really good sized lanai that looked out at Lana'i and Moloka'i where we sat and watched whales, catamarans, surfers, paddlers and beautiful sunsets. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you need and more. They even had a nice complimentary basket with nuts, chocolate, coffee, chips and more. The cupboards held a good selection of some basic supplies as well. The living area was a good size for a one bedroom unit and was nicely decorated. The bedroom was modest, but had plenty of storage. There were things like a cooler, beach chairs, snorkelling equipment and more for us to use. At one point the ice maker in the fridge packed it in, but the owner had it fixed by the end of the day. Really nice guy. The location was great as there was a mall with a grocery store within walking distance. We used the pool and hot tub several times. It was clean with lots of lounges and chairs and a nice big pool house. We have stayed in several VRBO places over the years and this was one of the nicest. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable place where you can relax and enjoy the uninterrupted view.
