Best Condo Best Location Best Owners

This is the cutest condo, everything you need is here. Right across the street from the beach, with a great place to snorkel, shopping right next door Resturant’s next door in both directions. You really don’t need a car as you can take the bus all over the Island. I have rented Earl’s condo many times and this is the only place I stay. Earl is wonderful to work with which makes it so easy. If you are lucky enough you might even get to meet him and Mary. They are so very. Nice.

Fantastic Location

(From our TripAdvisor page)
Fantastic location, very comfortable condo with all amenities you could want…bbq, pool, laundry etc.

Fantastic location from which to explore the island! Starting with the beach across the street!

There are plenty of food choices, shops, stores all within walking distance. No need to drive anywhere if you don’t want to. If, like us, you enjoy exploring the central location is perfect!

For extended stays, the condo was great as we often cooked dinner and prepared lunches.

Behr is great and very accommodating. The pool is nice, and all of the people we met were friendly.

Two things I highly recommend you don’t miss. 1) the onion rings next door at Moose Mcgillicuddy’s. 2) The hike south from La Perouse Park.


Fantastic Value

This Maui condo is perfect for people who want to be incredibly close to the beach without paying the high price.

The condo itself is very comfortable, has everything you need for a great stay (beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, kitchen tools, etc.), is a prime location for gorgeous sunsets at the beach across the street, is next to the pool if you prefer, and is super close to super markets, restaurants, food trucks, and the greatest dive bar next door. In addition, Kihei is a great spot for a variety of beach options, snorkeling, biking, but close enough to visit other parts of the island and airport as well. 

To top everything off, Earl made the process very easy and clear cut. Definitely will be returning as soon as I can!

Incredibly well equipped

What a great place to stay. The condo was really close to everything inluding beaches, the volcano and restaurants.
The unit was incredibly well equipped, the kitchen had a French press grinder and coffee.

Beach equipment was also provided. Everyone in the condos and office we’re friendly and helpful.

We appreciated how quiet the unit was and all the tropical plants on the grounds making the unit feel more private and creating the ambiance of a tropical Paradise.

The entire place felt really laid back. We’ll be back when we can.

Very comfortable condo

Very comfortable condo in a fantastic location!

I can’t express enough how comfortable we were. Earl is extremely nice and has equipped the condo with all you might need, not just inside but beach equipment as well.

The location is perfect, especially if you enjoy exploring the island.

It’s so close to everything. If you prefer to just stay nearby, everything you might need (restaurants, shops, c-store, etc) is a short walk away. The onion rings at Moose’s next door are the best I’ve ever had!
I highly recommend reading and utilizing the book ‘Maui Revealed’ that’s provided, along with any tips you can get from Earl.

Highly Recommended Rental

We would highly recommend this condo to anyone planning a visit on Maui.

The condo is equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your stay.

We loved the boogie boards and beach chairs as those were two things we didn’t have to rent.

We also loved the location- right across from the beach, and walking distance to several shops and restaurants. Although we had a rental car during our stay, it is not necessary given the amazing location of this condo. The grounds are quiet, well maintained, and the pool area was beautiful.

Earl was very helpful and provided all the information we needed to enjoy our vacation.
We can’t wait to return!

First time on Maui

Hi Earl,
Finally settled in back in Toronto here and I wanted to send a quick note to thank you for renting your condo out to us.

It was our first time on Maui and it could not have been a better experience. The condo was perfect and had everything we needed.

What an amazing location! We have every intention of returning to Maui, and I look forward to staying at KKN 218 again!
Thanks again,


Great place to stay. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
What can I say about the condo except FANTASTIC!

The owner of this condo has thought about everything! From boogie boards to beach chairs to pots and pans etc.

I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. Great price and it located like 100′ from the beach.

Do yourself a favor and rent this condo. You will love it.

Fabulous condo, great value

This condo is homey , clean and very comfortable. It is nicely decorated and has all you need for a comfortable stay.

The grounds are well maintained with lovely landscaping. Everything is close by and convenient.

Love having the beach right across the street.

We enjoyed the beautiful chorus of birds singing each morning.

Thank you Earl for sharing your beautiful condo. All the info you passed along was very helpful too. We give this condo the highest recommendation if staying in Maui is in your future.

Nice location

Having looked at other quarters to stay in this was the most reasonable.

The owners have obviously been offering this for rent for a considerable time as they have thought of everything. They have kept the condo updated with appliances, carpet etc. The bed was very comfortable, it is just the right size for a couple.

The condo complex is beautifully maintained, Landscaping, cleanliness of pool, and very important was the condo was a few hundred feet from the main boulevard so the only thing that woke us were birds.

As my wife said you scored a good one. Thanks Earl could not have been better.

Reviewer location Kamiah, Idaho

Thoroughly outfitted

Thanks, Earl.
I meant to email you when we got home to tell you how much we enjoyed your condo. It was the most thoroughly outfitted place we’ve ever stayed in. You thought of everything.

There will be another time and we’ll definitely keep you in mind.
Thanks again and I’ll let you know when I receive the deposit.

Great condo

Great condo, location and price
The condo has everything you need for your stay on Maui including beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys and umbrellas. It is located next door to Fred’s and Moose’s so you don’t have to drive if you want a few cocktails.

The condo looks out onto the pool which has little covered cabana areas that will shade you from the sun. Onsite laundry is very nice so you don’t have to pack a lot of clothes.

I highly recommend this condo if you want a great location at a reasonable price!

Reviewer location Albany, OR

Terrific stay

Hi Earl,
I’m sorry I’m a little slow in getting back to you.

I did have a terrific stay while in Maui. (I’m of the opinion it’s difficult to have a bad stay in Maui, and if you do, it’s your own fault!)

Your condo is terrific and is in a wonderful location, so thank YOU for allowing me to rent from you, as well as for being so accommodating. I’ll definitely keep your place in mind on my future visits there.

Just so you know, I did receive the deposit check on Saturday so we’re all set as far as that is concerned.
You have a great year as well Earl!


Enjoyed our stay

Hello Earl,
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your condo at Kihei Kai Nani. It was wonderful. We have never stayed anywhere that was as well stocked. We should have checked the cabinets before we went to the store.

the unit was great. We may call you next year.

Thank You,
Bill & Carol Richter

Thank you again

Hi Earl and Mary,
Keatra and I got home last night… I just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you again for having us in your home.

The condo had everything we needed and more; it was our Maui home away from home.

Very comfortable, and you were so helpful in answering any questions I had, even if some of them were very last-minute! Thank you so much…

I would be thrilled to stay there again on future trips, and I will definitely tell friends about it.

All was excellent

Aloha Earl,
Thank you so much for the beautiful stay in your nice condo. All of it was excellent.

We will definitely come back, when we return to Hawaii. Our best friends are going to Maui in October and they will perhaps contact you soon.

So mahalo again, take care and all the best.
Regards Torsten & Katrin

Enjoyed sitting out on the lanai

Aloha Earl,
I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at your condo..we had beautiful weather the entire 2 weeks we were on Maui – it was wonderful.

We spent many hours walking on the beaches and just soaking up the warm sun.

The condo itself was great and we especially enjoyed sitting out on the lanai every morning eating breakfast.

We did do a bit of touring and flew over to Oahu one day to tour Pearl Harbour, the Dole Plantation and had supper at the North Shore.

We took the tour bus on the Road to Hana and were very glad that we did as my husband was able to enjoy the scenery instead of worrying about the driving.
All in all, it was a wonderful holiday and we are planning on going back.
Mahalo and thank you.

Great time in your Maui condo

We had a great time in your Maui condo.  The unit is well decorated and appointed.  We lacked for nothing.

The kitchen utensils, towels, boogie boards…everything else were wonderful.  We will definitely recommend your place to others.
Best regards,
The Giacalone’s and Devine’s

Yours beats them all

We just got back from your condo. I just want to tell you that your condo was the best that we’ve ever stayed in.
We have been to Hawaii over 50 times, and stayed in many condos, but yours beats them all.
You have a fantastic location, both geographically in Kihei, location on the property, and the incredible views. We really loved the ocean views form both the living room and bedroom.
All of your supplies and equipment were complete and elegant. The amenities are superb, and the condition of the entire condo was A-1.
We certainly look forward to returning next year. Thanks.
Bob Solton

Home away from home.

Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us.

We had a wonderful time and it made us feel like a home away from home.

The beach accessories, kitchen and location are awesome. We hope to return again and appreciate your hospitality.

Aloha and Mahalo,

Our last trip here

Jim and Arlene Sima La Grange Pk Ill

Earl and Mary
With much sadness this is our last trip here. We have had several very happy years in this unit. We couldn’t have dealt with two nicer people than you.

Our hearts will always be here in Kai Nani.
Thank you both for all your kindness.

Our first visit to Maui

Steve, Jeannie, Barbar Bowser Albuquerqui, NM

This was our first visit to Maui and we found the condo location to be ideal.

We especially appreciated all your pre-visit info and tips and then all the xtras in the condo were a big hit (toys, cooler, plastic ware, beach towels, etc.) the condo was quite comfortable and the pool was the best!

The beach was so convenient and fun!

Thanks again for your hospitality. We will cherish our memories of our first visit to this island paradise.
Mahalo !

Had a wonderful time

Overlooking the pool was perfect

Dear Earl,
I just wanted to contact you to say how much I enjoyed my stay in your condo.

The location overlooking the pool was perfect.  We all (my girlfriends) and I had a great time and as I have stayed at the Kihei Kai Nani several times in the past, I think it is a place that can’t be beat.

Thank you again for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay.
