Mana Kai 809
Fantastic location and amenities. The view is unmatched!
I have stayed at the Mana Kai twice now and really appreciate much about it. The location and vibe of the place is great. The person we dealt with (a family member of the owner I believe) was reponsive when we booked. When the lock broke, he had a locksmith there to address the situation immediately. Much appreciated. Beds are good (important). I also think that the owner could spend just a little bit of the rather steep nightly fare to make it a better situation for renters. Buy some more kitchen utensils, etc. Provide a cheap cooler. Buy some beach chairs for your guests to use. The Mana Kai provides chairs, but for use on their lawn only. What about when you want to sit in the sand or visit another beach? I just don't think that guests should be expected to buy their own. None of this was a big deal and overall it was a good rental experience. I would rent from them again. I just think, considering the nightly cost, that they could spend a couple hundred bucks now and then and make things better.
Thanks for taking the time to help us do a better job at making the experience as nice as can be. We added two really nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs, and completely overhauled our kitchen utensils, glasses, serving dishes, and added a great knife set. We also added a brand new high end mattress for the main bedroom. We have a grab bag closet, that is always full of beach goodies. The folks who stay add to it, and sometimes things disappear. We never quite know what is available. I made sure that a cooler was added to the mix. Again, we really appreciate you taking the time to add your thoughts.
Our home on Maui
My family and I have stayed in 809 numerous times. It has become our home on Maui. I love sitting on the lanai watching the whales. Falling asleep at night to the sound of the waves is such a peaceful experience. We look forward to our next stay.
Great location, great view, beautiful building but unit could use some updating.
Beautiful building and views but overall this unit is dated and because of this it was not as enjoyable as a previous stay in a different unit. Simple replacement of bedding, linens, paint, dinnerware and the stove would go a long way. The unit could also use new flooring and mattresses and it would be significantly more enjoyable. Air conditioning was nice and kept us comfortable.
I am sorry you had some problems with our unit. This is the first non 5 star review we have received since our total remodeling of both bathrooms and installation of a custom high end sliding bamboo wall. We rent at over 90% occupancy, and a lot of our renters are repeat.
I'll address your complaints down the response, but I need to add a few things about why our unit is unique and fairly priced. I do not think there is another top floor unit, as reasonably priced as ours. If so I would love to know. When you rent ours - you know exactly where you will be located. The much more expensive units from the Mana Kai rental pool do not offer that assurance. Staying right above the restaurant can be an unpleasant surprise. Our view is is second to none, and the ambient visitor noise and footsteps above are non-existent.
We are one of the few units that do not have to follow the same exacting remolding plans the rest of the units at the Mana Kai must abide by. This is a unit owned by a family of artists and musicians, and we have remodeled in a way that suits our taste. We call it relaxing and comfortable. We a use smaller fridge and stove to give more counter space, and to add room for a make up room connected to the main bathroom.
The floor tiles are our choice over the large slabs that all the remodeled units must use. The painting is something our cleaning crew leader (the same person we have used for over a decade) will look into. We added the custom bamboo sliding wall to take care of chips that happened to the old painted one. Since we repainted everything during the remodel, and we have not had any complaints, I am glad you brought that up. We always attempt to resolve all problems immediately. With our unit use being over 90%, we add new linens more than a half dozen times a year. This is the first mattress complaint we have had, and we will also look into this right away.
Like any rental spot, were are not the right fit for everyone. What we provide is great experience for those who want an unforgettable lanai view, and less humid breezes our non restricted high location provides. It is what we choose to provide, but will also problem solve anything that arises as soon as possible.
There are $1000 rooms at the 5 star (not on the beach) Japanese hotels that provide gilded fixtures and candy on the pillow. The view, however, can be seen a million places around the world. Ours is unique, and will stay with you long after you have returned home. Greg
Fantastic location and comfortable, clean property.
The hosts were super-helpful with restaurant and activity recomendations. The snorkeling right off the property's beach was fabulous. The shaded palm grove out front was a gift in the midday sun and the pool was the perfect temperature, clean, and fun. The ocean was perfect and not too chilly, even in December. We slept with the deck doors open all night and listened to the surf. Haven't slept that well in months. We are a family with two teenagers and we all stayed comfortably at this property and had plenty of things to do for everyone. Can't wait to return and enjoy the Maui life again.
