The primary and guest bedrooms have king size and queen size beds, respectively. The living room sofa folds out to a queen size bed. All beds are very comfortable and have fully encased allergy covers on the mattresses and pillows. We also use high quality linens for a comfortable sleep after your day of fun activities on Maui. Our condo has a fully equipped remodeled kitchen and outdoor barbecues next to the pool. It's just steps away from 5 miles of undeveloped Sugar Beach, perfect for walks or a refreshing dip. We have added all the extra touches and amenities that we enjoy ourselves, hoping that it will make your stay comfortable as well. Our unit features Cris's personal artwork and stained glass, a hot water on demand dispenser for hot beverages, and an inkjet printer - handy to printout boarding passes, maps and activity info. Boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, coolers and beach toys are all available for your use. The fully stocked kitchen is equipped with all you'd expect and more, including a coffee pot, blender, toaster, rice cooker, paper towels, napkins, foil, plastic wrap and zip lock bags. Coin operated washers and dryers are available on site just a few steps from the condo. ***Please see the Rates and Rate Notes sections for our rates and cancellation policy and note that our cancellation policy is different from the TripAdvisor/FlipKey cancellation policy displayed elsewhere.*** Thank you for considering staying at our condo; we know you will be very comfortable here and will want to return. Hope you'll checkout our over one hundred 5-STAR reviews from our past guests. Mahalo, Phil & Cris Peacock (owners) Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: GE015173632001,TA015173632001More

About the neighbourhood
Away from the crowds, but centrally located on Maui’s south shore 7 miles from the main airport in Kahului, 6 miles from Kihei, 12 miles from Lahaina. Our 24-units condo complex, Makani A Kai, in Ma’alaea Village, is located on the sand at the end of a dead-end street. One parking space is provided for each of the 24 condos, including two disabled spaces. There are no booking fees, resort fees, WiFi fees, parking fees or other hidden costs that you may find at other accommodations. Adjacent to 5 miles of continuous sand along Sugar Beach and Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, perfect for walking and observing wildlife.
Getting around
The most convenient and flexible way to see the sights is to have a rental car. There are tours, such as the road to Hana for example, where you may wish to sit back, relax, and leave the driving to others.
