Mahalo for your great review. Yes, the happy hour is very popular here and we are closer to the beach than most other mega resorts in Wailea. We hope to have you vacation with us again. Aloha

This was my first time renting a condo on maui but with two small kids condo is a way to go. We stayed in unit 812 and it has been remodeled and had everything we needed from towels to cooking pans and pots. There were 6 of us and we used both beds and a pull out couch. I used...

Aloha and thank you for your review. Although 812 is not in the on site rental program, it is a fine example of condo units available to rent here. We will pass on the information to the owner. Mahalo

OMG! Best beachfront bargain Spectacular beach, lovely breakfast and views to die for. If I come back I will skip the Grand Eaikea and choose here!- better everything and way more intimate and local . Love that there is a dog-friendly beach and it has wide beach views

Being first trip to Maui I wanted to find a place that felt local. Well I found it. I couldn't afford the condo portion, so it was hotel side for me. It overlooked the parking lot, but don't let that deter you. I barely noticed any noise and I was still able to hear and see the ocean from my...

Mahalo for choosing to stay with us. The hotel type room is a good value and as you pointed out, you could still hear the ocean. It's been a hot and dry summer and the ants tend to go inside looking for water. The local folks that live in this state all put up with ants and other insects inside...

Absolutely loved this old school relaxed resort in Kihei. The location on a headland looking down the beach and coast is magical. We had 3 apartments and each had a spectacular view, even the one furthest away from the beach. Apartments a nice size, with lounge and kitchen. Dated but totally fine. Some were undergoing renovation and I assume all...

Mahalo for taking the time to write your review. You covered a lot and I am sure it will help others that have not stayed here make a decision to try us. Not being a "brand" property is not a bad thing especially with our beachfront location. Hope to see you folks next year. Aloha

Stay here EVERY time we visit Maui. All rooms are on the ocean and have ocean and mountain views. Condos have full kitchens and most are outfitted with everything you need to cook meals. We prefer the rooms 601, 701 and 801 because they are the end units nearest the beachfront.....but all rooms have a great view. There is a...

I will now and forever defend the Mona Kai. We have been staying here for over 35 years. Yes being around for so long making so many great family memories, everything shows sign of age every now and again.
