Kihei Kai Nani
Ranked #43 of 60 Speciality Lodging in Kihei
Reviewed 21 June 2011

We stayed in unit 343 in June 2011 along with our 3 year old daughter. This unit, and the complex in general, perfectly met our expectations. We would definitely stay in the same unit, or another unit in the same complex, again.

Unit-specific pros:

- The condo was very clean
- The Lanai (patio) was sheltered from the sun and was perfect for eating meals
- There were beach mats, beach umbrellas, beach towels, sand toys, coolers, and some boogie boards available
- There was a nice library of Maui books and travel guides
- Free cable internet (but no wi-fi; bring a router if so desired)
- Unit keys were kept in a combination lock box. This was nice, since it meant you didn't have to worry about losing the keys at the beach.

Kihei Kai Nani pros:

- A great beach (Kamaole II) is just across the street
- Free parking
- Clean and pleasant pool
- Well-maintained and lush grounds

(Minor) Unit-specific cons:

- The bedroom (and only) air conditioner was noisy and ineffective. At night, though, there was sufficient airflow through the condo that air conditioning wasn't required.
- The pool has a minimum depth of 3 feet, and is consequently not well suited for small children (although, that being said, our daughter spent hours paddling around the pool in her life-jacket).

Kihei Kai Nani cons:

- If you are at all a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. The birds are screaming at about 4:00AM and there is seemingly continual grass trimming and cutting during the day. Take these things away, however, and the complex is very quiet.

Stayed at the Kihei Kai Nani for my birthday, had never been to Hawaii before and we had a great experience. Kihei was an awesome spot right across from some of the best beaches and great snorkling. The condos were comfortable and fully stocked with everything, we saved a lot of money by grocery shopping and eating all of our breakfasts/lunches at the condo. It was an easy and fast drive up to Lahaina, Wilea and more. Each condo is different so it was nice to be able to go on the website to choose the one you like best. I have had bad experiences in hotels with bed bug issues so I always check the matresses....I did find a few spots that indicated to me that there were bed bugs so we chose to sleep on the pull out couch in the living room for the trip but it did not ruin our time at all. We stayed in room #102. MUST GO TO SEE THE HALEAKALA SUNRISE!!! No words for the experience, absolutely beautiful, a long windy road but worth it, bring lots of layers it gets cold up there!

We looked for accomodation less than $150/night but without molds and bedbugs. We were lucky, we found Kihei Kai Nani! Complex conviniently situated in Kihei right across Kamaole Beach Park Two. Close to different shops and restaurants and cafes which could be reached by foot in couple of minutes. There were anything you might need in our unit (361). Fully equiped kitchen. Beach and home towels. Quality boogie boards to surf the waves. Beach chairs, umbrella and etc. Convinient and free parking. Nice landskape. BBQ facilities outside. Personell is friendly and helpfull. It was quiet, we didn't hear any noise for a week. We would defenetly come here again!

Room Tip: Take room without carpet - no smell!

We had the pleasure of staying in Unit #246 in Building #6. I can't remember a more relaxed and lovely experience staying this condo. Our neighbors were quiet. Our balcony overlooked the pool and we could see the ocean and Kamaole Beach #2 just over 2 blocks away.
The unit was well equipped in the kitchen area a dn the bathroom was newly renovated and ha a lovely shower.
We are going back for 3 weeks November 2011!

This was our second time staying here and you can't beat the location or the price. It's literally steps from Kam II beach which is one the best beaches if you have kids, and centrally located on the island so it's literally minutes away from anywhere you want or need to go.
We booked directly thru the management company so we were able to pick the building location and they had pictures of each unit so you knew what you were getting. The grounds and pool were very clean. I would provide one caution. The complex houses mostly seniors who are militant about noise. We were "shushed" quite a few times so it was a bit unnerving trying to be as quiet as possible with 2 boys (not an easy task)!

Right across the street from Kamaole II, which is a beautiful all sand, gradual entry beach. Great for kids and the waves were fun for boogie boarding and swimming. The Kihei Kai Nani was value priced, and far from the shee-shee Wailea Resorts. Small pool, and we were in a great room over-looking the pool with a view of the beach. Close to everything. 10 minutes from the beaches of Makena, and 20 minute drive to Paia and the beaches on that side such as Ho'okiipa. All-in-all, it's a clean modest set of condo's, perfectly located for a great price.
