If you've always wanted to stay right on Kihei's famous Keawakapu Beach and be within a short driving distance of Wailea's white-sand beaches, staying at this South Kihei vacation rental, the Mana Kai Resort, gets you close to the best of both worlds. The soft sand of the mile-longKeawakapu Beach is just steps away from the well-manicured lawn of the resort, greeting you with a fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean as you look out your bedroom window or private lanai. Keawakapu Beach marks the boundary between Kihei and Wailea, so the bustling activities, myriad dining options, and social scene of South Kihei are not too far away. Kahului Airport is less than half an hour's drive from the property.
The sparkling, azure waters of the Pacific Ocean and the sight of offshore islands Molokini and Kaho'olawe, and the West Maui mountains set your inner clock to Hawaiian time the moment you wake and lean out of your beachfront hotel balcony. Offering South Maui lodging with 1 to 2 bedroom vacation condos sleeping up to 6 guests, Mana Kai Resort ensures you have wonderful oceanfront views allowing you to soak up magnificent sunsets from the comfort of your private lanai. During the winter season, spy on whales breaching offshore as hundreds of humpback whales flock to Maui's warm waters to give birth to their young.
Some Mana Kai Maui vacation rentals afford views of these acrobatic splashes from the comfort of the living area and from the upper floors of the property. Views of sunrise over Haleakala may also be seen from well-placed condo units on the upper floors. For guests in the hotel rooms, lush tropical gardens and swaying palms make up the view outside.
The beachfront hotel rooms plush sofas await you at the end of the day so you can put your feet up and relax, catch your favorite programs on television, or watch your favorite movies on the DVD player. Choose to stay connected with family and friends back home with wireless internet and telephone service. If you like preparing meals from scratch, Mana Kai Resort makes it possible to whip up your favorites in a well-furnished (and in some units, recently upgraded) cooking environment. As with most Maui vacation condos, the majority of the units come with a full kitchen while the remaining ones are supplied with kitchenette appliances, such as a coffee maker, microwave and mini-fridge. Alternatively, you can always take the elevator downstairs to stock up on groceries from the onsite convenience store or to satisfy your cravings at the restaurant within the property.
Most of the beachfront condo rentals at Mana Kai Maui Resort have an open layout so the living room gives way to the bedroom and the kitchen, allowing for ease of movement and efficient circulation of the ocean breeze or air conditioning. Other units have bedrooms separated from the living area by sliding "shoji doors" for a bit of privacy. In others, master bedrooms are situated close to the lanai so guests sleep to ocean sounds and wake up to ocean views right from the comfort of their king-size bed.
At Mana Kai Resort, you'll truly feel on a Hawaiian vacation getaway. Step inside welcoming and naturally lit living spaces painted in light and breezy colors that remind you you’re on a tropical holiday. Those looking for a chic set-up may want to opt for rentals with white-and-monochrome ensemble while those who prefer a more lived-in look may want to consider rentals that come in warm-and-beige tones. In some units, wood paneling lends a rich and warm interior while light-and-bright color palettes in other units make vividly colored décor pop out and lend the interior with a modern vibe.
Discover Maui Adventures from Beachfront Kihei Vacation Rentals
With a fitness room on the hotel resort grounds, you can hit the treadmill anytime and warm-up for the day's activities. Take a dip at the swimming pool for an invigorating lap, or sign up for a yoga class that regularly takes place onsite to limber up for your adventure ahead. In the morning when conditions are calmer, walk directly off the lobby for a meditative stroll or swim on the beach. Even better, put on your goggles and keep a sharp eye out for turtles, which regularly visit the waters off the beach.
If you plan a more active time out on the water, rent a kayak or surfboard at the rental shop on the hotel resort grounds. Wave conditions at Cove Park up the coast past the Kamaole Beach trio and closer to North Kihei are ideal for kayakers and novice surfers most of the time. As the day comes to a close, sit down to a hearty dinner at the restaurant on-site or by the BBQ grills with a well-earned drink on hand.

Not to mention, you can enjoy the complete amenities of a home. You can have warm self-cooked meals and even do your laundry at home.
You also get all of that for a fraction of the cost of a hotel room.
