Grab a fresh bathing suit and beach towel from the condo's shared washer/dryer and head down to the community swimming pool to take a dip while the palms rustle around you. Have your loved ones join you for a poolside dinner on the shared gas grill, indulge in a relaxing soak in the complex's hot tub, and head back upstairs to your private lanai for dessert, coffee, and an unforgettable ocean sunset.

Views are breathtaking, even our friends who stayed at bigger resorts loved views from the balcony and dining area

We stayed at Maui Kai 508 from January 19, 2022 through January 29, 2022. What keeps us from giving it five stars are a few things: The couch and chair were very uncomfortable. The couch cushions had broken springs that poke upward making it unusable for more than a few minutes. We could live with it being worn, but it needs to be usable. The recliner chair was also uncomfortable and needs to be changed. All of the windows are broken and would not open properly, so no cross breezes. Lastly, the AC makes clicking and banging noises which kept waking us up. On the positive side, the views from the lanai are incredible! We watched the whales right out in front of the unit every morning with breakfast. The kitchen was updated and well equipped except for grilling utensils. The king bed was very comfortable. For a relatively small amount of money, this could be a five star unit. Perhaps the owner is unaware.

The unit was staffed well with necessary items. Had a great time.

We’ve stayed at the Maui Kai annually since 2000 and have stayed in many different units. Your unit was by far our favorite. We loved the open lanai with a beautiful view overlooking the ocean, Lanai/Molokai, and also the beach to the north. This corner unit felt very open and bright with windows in the dining area, bathroom, & back bedroom. Basically a different view from every room. We also noticed the AC was quiet and working especially well compared with other years. The kitchen looked very attractive and had all of the conveniences we needed to cook our meals. Thank you for 2 wonderful weeks in paradise! We’ll be back next year and hope to stay in this unit again.

We came to celebrate my best friend’s 50th birthday and we wanted to be able to be on the ocean. This unit did NOT disappoint with the ocean views. The balcony is big enough to sit out and enjoy - table and 4 chairs and a lounge chair. It’s pretty windy most of the time and totally worth it! It faces west so perfect for sunsets. The sofa sleeper isn’t the best of mattresses which is one reason I gave it 4 Stars. Since it’s next to the patio, we were able to keep the doors open and listen to the waves each night to fall asleep to! I
The kitchen has the basic needs. It does have a regular drip coffee maker so you’ll need coffee filters and coffee. There is a grocery store right up the street - could be walking distance if you don’t have super heavy things.
We had to call maintenance a couple times and they were super responsive. The AC works but you don’t need it. Pro tip- you have to have the balcony doors closed to have the air turn on. (No one told us). Bring change if you want to do laundry. $1.75 wash $2 dry.
Pool area is small but nice and feels private. Nice rec room with ping pong and games, corn hole and darts.
I would recommend staying here! We’ll be back!

I've only been to Maui one other time and let me tell you, this most recent visit was AMAZING. This condo has the most beautiful view of the ocean! There are binoculars under the TV stand and I ended up using them every morning to watch for whales while drinking my morning coffee. Even though we were late to the whale season there were still plenty of sightings throughout the day. The condo has 2 beach chairs and an umbrella which were vital to our beach days. I have absolutely 0 complaints about this condo and would definitely recommend it to anyone I know. The Vacasa staff responded to an issue with the WiFi within 20 minutes of my call and were a dream to work with. They let me know that the internet provider was performing a reset of the system and the internet was back on a the time they said it would be. Great condo, great location and great locals. If you're thinking about staying at this condo you definitely should. Thank you Vacasa!

The best possible choice for a vacation for 2! We stayed a full week and it was so comfortable to come back to after a day of activities! Absolutely cannot beat that view, such beautiful light in the mornings and perfect sunsets on the porch! Wonderful to have our own kitchen, very well equipped, and great location! Will definitely come back ASAP!
Ann C. Mar 2020
The carpet and furniture (specifically the couch) are worn and soiled. I'd still give this 5 stars - the condo is fully stocked with what you need - including beach towels (2) and beach chairs (2). Bed was comfortable. View can't be beat! In March you can watch whales every day! Incredible!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Ann! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your comments to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Theodore M. Mar 2020
We loved the view and had stayed in a 9th floor unit previously. This condo was well furnished but furniture and bedding was very outdated and worn. It didn't bother us that much but when comparing it to the other condo it was a little disappointing.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback and will be discussing carpet and sofa updates with the owner. We hope to see you again and appreciate you choosing Vacasa!

The owners really have set ups perfect home away from home for their guests. Besides having absolutely incredible ocean and coastal views there is a warm and welcoming vibe that speaks volumes about our hosts. Every amenity is available and makes for a familiar and comfortable stay. The kitchen is great for home cooked meals, but plenty of restaurants are within walking distance or a short drive into Lahaina offers even more options. The pool and hot tub offer an intimate and friendly place to relax after a long day of exploring the island. We will definitely be back, as this has become our favorite vacation home in Maui!
Satomi A. Oct 2019
Absolutely LOVED our stay at Maui Kai 508! The highlights, of course, are the SPECTACULAR views! From our lanai, we saw a turtle swimming on both the first and last days of our stay along with two pods of dolphins (Spinners & Bottlenose) gamboling in the waves. Not to mention rainbows and unbelievable unobscured sunsets, all to the delicious sound of the surf. If the waves are too loud for you, no worries. Shut the sliding door and windows and the unit is silent as a tomb. Since there is only one neighbor, the likelihood that you’ll be disturbed is low. There was a toddler staying next to us and we did hear him cry occasionally but never enough to spoil our stay.
The beach is just steps away – exit the parking lot about halfway up, through a pedestrian gate to a public beach that spans southward for miles. Or drive to the many beaches dotting the island. Maui beaches tend to be RIGHT on the water with rocky bottoms - walk to a spot in front of one of the resorts for the sandier stretches. But always exercise caution as the undertow can be intense.
Back to 508! The bed was a bit hard for my taste but never presented a problem physically. Kitchen was adequately stocked with pots, pans, plates, utensils, glasses, coffee mugs, etc. Plus a few extra spices left from other guests. Check in the cabinets before you go shopping! And you can go shopping at the grocery store just at the end of the drive or take a 10 minute drive to an exceedingly well stocked Safeway.
The pool is small but clean and comfortable with grills and plates and utensils for guest use.
We did have a few teeny tiny bugs but that’s to be expected when you are in a tropical environment. Again, nothing to spoil our stay.
Laundry is one floor down and costs $3.50 total for a wash and dry.
We were definitely not ready to leave and have already recommended the unit to our friends. If/when we go back to Maui, the likelihood is very high that we will be back at 508!
Manager response:
Hello Satomi, Thank you for the review. We apologize laundry service is on the 2nd, 4th, and 6th floor and only accepts quarters. The matresses are picked out by the owner of the home and to their comfort. We do hope though you will allow us to host you again in the future.

We spend a week in this condo, loved it in everyway. Spectacular views!!! Sunsets and warm breaze in the nights are the best. Condo is efficient with all ammeneties you need to comfortably stay with your family.
It was perfect for us with a toddler who takes two naps a day,so we spent a lot of time in the balcony soaking in the view.
Walkable distance to food trucks, markets and restaurants.
Thank you for letting us use your condo for a week. We will definitely return sometime 😊
MARIA L. Jun 2019
Loved the view from this unit. Corner unit with window and balcony water views. Felt like I was on a cruise ship having my coffee each morning. Kitchen and bathroom upgraded. Couch in family room a little worn, but did its job. Pool was warm and clean. Short walk to Dukes along oceanfront walkway. Easy parking, and ice maker in freezer also made things easy.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Maria! We have notified the owner of your comment regarding the couch. We hope to see you again!

My wife and I decided to spend a few nights here while we were in Maui and we could not have been more pleased with the views and the facility itself. Parking was always a breeze and check in/check out was instantaneous. The beach nearby is alright, but for a better experience go south a couple of miles to the kaanapali beach where parking is simple and there are a few places to grab lunch or a drink.

All in all I highly recommend this place!

Watching whales everyday from the lanai
Sharilyn G. Mar 2019
Best views - great for whale watching. Saw more there than on the 4 whale watches we went out on. Prefer the pool not be in the parking lot and that the washer and dryer were in the condo. The carpet needs to be replaced with tile but you cannot beat the location or the reasonable price so I give it 5 stars!
Todd D. Dec 2018
The apartment is in an older but well kept building and was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Notability the kitchen had a full complement of dishes, pots and pans, and utensils needed for cooking full meals. We basically used it for breakfast, making fresh fruit smoothies with the provided blender and eating a few take out meals. But it was definitely set up to do any meal. Salt and pepper but nothing else in terms of spices. It’s not a gourmet kitchen but quite functional with all the needed gadgets. There were a box of chocolates and a bag of coffee to get us started which was very nice. Reasonably comfortable sofa, chair, and bed. Plenty of towels including beach towels. A couple of older beach chairs but not much else in terms of beach stuff. A lanai with a very nice ocean view and one lounge chair as well as a small table with four chairs. There is a small pool and hot tub but we didn’t ever use them; when in Hawaii we want to be on the beach and in the ocean! So why 4 and not 5 stars? While basically clean and in working order much of the apartment is dated from the furniture to the carpet in the bedroom and living room. The carpet in particular needs to go. Know that the building seems to sit in an area that catches the wind so often the lanai was very windy. The plus to that is we never needed the a/c. There is no sand beach directly in front of the building though you can access a small beach to the north and about a mile and a half long beach to the south all the way to just north of Black Rock. Mostly we drove to better beaches for snorkeling, swimming and a day of boogie boarding. With taxes and fees it worked out to around $250/night and so for an on the ocean view apartment in West Maui I guess it’s a bargain. But know you’re not getting a four or five hundred dollar a night place! Good parking, on site staff for building issues or questions, and the check in/checkout process as well as attention from Vacasa were excellent.

This place was amazing! Beautiful views from the lanai. Strolls on the beach just steps away from the condo. Would highly recommend!! We will be back! Mahalo! 🦀🐬🐠🐳

The view from the lanai is incredible.
Bradley H. Jun 2018
My wife & I wanted a place that had a view of the ocean and we could not have been any closer with #508 at the Maui Kai. The open corner Lanai had views of Molakai, Lanai & all the way up to Napili . The suite had an updated kitchen with everything needed to make your meals as well as any fancy drinks to enjoy. The living room was nice, but does need an upgrade as the furniture & carpet are getting old. We were out on the Lanai most of the time so it wasn't a big deal. There are also 2 great BBQ's down by the pool as well as a fully stocked kitchen in the cabana next to the BBQ area. The pool & hot tub are not large but great for soaking up a little sun or going for a swim. There is not a sandy beach in front of the Maui Kai anymore, but there is a small beach next door that is ok for swimming or a 5 min walk along the beach has great swimming & snorkeling available. Close to some good restaurants, such as Dukes, which is just a 5 minute walk away. There is a shopping centre also a 5 minute walk away. Lahaina is only a 10 minute drive for shopping or going to one of the many restaurants for lunch or dinner. We found the meals & drinks to be very expensive so we did not go out as much as we had expected. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quite place with beautiful views of the ocean. If you are looking for the big swimming pool with a bar & food service at the pool this is not the place for you. Aloha Brad & Fiona - From Vancouver, Canada

This place had absolutely everything we needed for our vacation. We were so grateful. The view was SPECTACULAR!! Thank you.
