Built in 1970, this ten-story Direct Ocean Fronting building sits along one of the most beautiful ocean fronting points on North Kaanapali Beach.

There are only 81 units onsite, one of which sits above the pool as the Resident Manager’s Home, and 80 units which all are perched directly on the water.

Maui Kai, Maui, Hawaii

The building configuration features one-bedroom units on the corners, two stacks of studios along the next row, and 2 one-bedroom units in the center of the building.

Some of the units have grandfathered extended living rooms, which then enclose the lanais, or some which have chosen to keep the original floor plans with a separate door out to the lanais.

This is a boutique property that has always been enjoyed by return visitors and features an incredible location, which is enhanced by a beautiful Pool, Spa, BBQ area and a wonderful play room, with a kitchen for guests to enjoy.

The onsite office handles some of the rentals, and some homeowners have opted to have their units managed by offsite companies; generally, use VRBO, and Air BnB. The options are great, as the location sells everything about this awesome retreat.

I currently have two beautifully appointed units on the market.

Unit 307 is a Studio with one bath, which has been upgraded recently. The counters in the kitchen are granite, and the bath has glass block wall, new carpeting and paint throughout, and an incomparable view. All your meals and gatherings will be enjoyed on this outdoor lanai, smack dab on the water. This unit is managed, and enjoys a high occupancy, through the front desk. It may be viewed with an appointment when it’s available.

Unit 108 is a ground floor one-bedroom/one-bath corner unit with an extended living room and an ocean fronting lanai. You have direct beach and surf access from your private lanai door. No need to carry Costco or surfboards upstairs. Awesome ground level access makes for a true North Kaanapali Beach experience. All of the upgrades are wonderful, including a walk-in shower. This unit is self-managed and enjoys a wonderful return guest occupancy.

The Maui Kai has completed an entire renovation, including new elevators, paint and spalling project. The assessment to pay for the work will be paid in full by the end of November 2018.

Your monthly maintenance fees include your utilities, water, sewer, cable, exterior maintenance, groundskeeping, exterior insurance and the reserve.
