About happy manakai 602 owner

Love spending time and snorkeling on great beaches around the world. Our favorite is Maui

happy manakai 602 owner purchased this condo in 2013

Why happy manakai 602 owner chose Kihei

We traveled to Maui for the last 20 years and think that this is the best property with the best views on the best beach on Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Direct oceanfront. You can observe the whales directly from your balcony. There is always shade on the balcony, we let our 2 year old nap there during the day.

Full ocean view from the back bedroom. Only one more unit before 602, so no 'foot traffic' past the back bedroom

Best Place to Stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Mana Kai Maui has the best beach and outdoor facility around. The snorkeling off this beach is wonderful. Lots of lounges to put in shade or sun on the lovely grass area. Our unit #602 was very nicely furnished and the view from the lanai is great. The cable tv has lots of channels and the internet worked great. The unit has very comfortable beds and extra seating if needed. We used the BBQ downstairs one evening and another evening enjoyed dinner at the Five Palms restaurant downstairs..

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Mana Kai property and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The room was very clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. The views were spectacular and the service staff were very exceptional. We will certainly try and do it again. Thank you.

Mana Kai 602

  • 5 of 5

Mana Kai 602 is a beautiful condo. I appreciated the taste and care that the owner has put into this unit- from the large kitchen sink with corner faucet to the recessed lighting, quiet AC units, bamboo cupboards and multiple ceiling fans. The unit is tastefully appointed with quality details!

The local management company was very responsive to our requests. We needed a dish drying rack and a large frying pan, and they delivered these items the following day. They also sent a plumber to address a plug in the B unit shower drain. The tub filler/drain mechanism was broken, and the plumber replaced it promptly. I was impressed with the immediate service!

I've stayed in many Mana Kai units, and this one is my favorite so far. I look forward to returning many times. I wish I were there now!

You're gonna love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at Mana Kai for a family vacation this past week (4 adults and two children aged 2 and 10 months).

We had a fantastic time- the location could not have been more convenient - or more beautiful. Seriously, the views were some of the best we'd ever seen (this being our 4th trip to Hawaii, and staying at some of the "best resort hotels" Hawaii has to offer). Waking up to a walk on the beach right outside your door, followed by breakfast in the unit or at a local restaurant, and then a dip in the pool... more beach and happy hour at the five palms downstairs was also super convenient, well priced, and yummy. Close to many other highly rated dining options and shopping. Renting snorkel gear and other water activity gear was very easy (and inexpensive!) downstairs- and we had a great time snorkeling right off the beach (saw lots of fish and turtles!) Sunsets from the beach or the balcony were breathtaking.

Unit was very clean and comfortable. We would (and plan) to stay again any chance we have. Our only request would be new pillows on the king beds, but, you quickly forget about that when you look out the window.

Thanks for a great stay, and lots of wonderful memories!

Owner's Response: Dear Jamie, Thank you for your warm review!We humbly agree - the view cannot be beat :) We are so glad you had a great time and hope you come back! PS I asked the managing company to bring in new pillows right away. They are very responsive and could fix whatever issues arise with a quick phone call (just an FYI for next time you are our dear guest)

Amazing Keawakapu Beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a magical and relaxing place, Mana Kai Resort is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Maui. The unit was adequate beside minor issues that were resolved which I give 4 stars for the responsiveness of the unit owner, Igor. However, Maui will always get an infinite stars in my review. We are looking forward to our next visit and our move to Maui.

Aloha & Mahalo

Perfect location but condo needs a refresh

  • 3 of 5

We have just returned from Mana Kai and we would rate the location as a 4/5 with stunning views of the beach and ocean.

However the room is a bit dated and the decor tired, being greeted by a vase of dead flowers at 11pm. didn't help you feel welcomed!

Construction/Renos -Fortunately an earlier reviewer had warned of the reno work ongoing, so we were prepared. We didn't have any warning from the owners. The condo next door is being upgraded, but the good news is they are nearly finished. However the work is ongoing in the block so my advice is to phone Mana Kai in advance and ask them directly. Not that there is anything you can do about it and it didn't really affect us as the renos are 9-4pm and not weekends; we weren't there during the day but you can hear it on the beach sometimes.

Mana Kai resort is really well looked after. The staff are friendly, the grounds clean and well kept including the BBQ's that you need to book with reception; but were never busy. The salt water resort pool is also clean and we used it as a rest from the sea or when the wind picked up in the PM. A rental shop (paddleboards, kayaks, bikes) and a convenience store help too. There's also a local yoga studio onsite which (next time!) we hope to use.

The beach is stunning, would much rather be up at this end then at the other end where the large hotels dominate the beach. The reef is also really cool, lots of fish and turtles. The wind picks up in the PM so get your water activities in before midday.

On a final point on the renovations, we went and looked at newly refurbished condo. It was stunning, but top dollar. so it's up to you if dated at less $$ is what you want. For us it would be, as this is location, location, location.

So will we be back?; yes is the answer........ I&T 2017
