We stayed in 907 for a week in early December. Maui Kai is well-located and close to many good snorkel sites. This unit is a bit dated in its furnishings - rattan/wicker furniture, but in good condition. The carpeting looks quite new. The bed was comfy and there is a small flat-screen TV. The chairs on the lanai could use...

Wow what an amazing trip to Maui, and great accommodations. It was a our first trip to Hawaii (from Vancouver) and we got 2 weeks of fantastic weather.

We booked our one bedroom condo through Donna Bender. It was my wife and my 3rd trip to Maui and our 40th anniversary. What a perfect week we had. Condo 905 exceeded our expectations. It was exceptionally clean, service was outstanding and the views were spectacular. Very close to a supermarket and easily accessible to go north to Kapalua Bay...

We booked Maui Kai through Donna Bender, who owns a unit there. The studio we got was great! Everything was very comfortable and clean. We loved having our own private balcony overlooking the beach and ocean. The kitchen area was also very useful. It's also located in a great location close to markets, shops, and other hot spots. We would...

Actually we spent two weeks at Mau Kai every year for 18 years until my husband's death in 2009. It was our Maui "home" and we always got "our" corner unit. The kitchen is well equipped and the beach is just out the front door. In fact, at some high tides the beach is AT the front door! It is...

We booked the Maui Kai last minute due to my husband misplacing his passport three days before leaving for Mexico. I am so glad it went missing! What a perfect paradise the Maui Kai is.
