Maui Kai 807 is a small oceanfront studio condo in West Maui on North Kaanapali Beach which you can book at

After a busy day of sightseeing, shopping, beaching and swimming in the warm ocean waters, return to the comforts and conveniences of your Hawaiian home. Take a refreshing shower before enjoying a fresh pineapple mai-tai on the private lanai while watching a gorgeous sunset.

If you wish to continue enjoying the sunset afterglow from the lanai instead of going out to one of the many fine restaurants a short drive away, you can grill fresh mahi-mahi or ahi steaks on the gas barbecues in the swimming pool area or prepare your own meal using fresh local foods purchased from the large grocery store or from the local farmers market, both a short walk away.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities for making a gourmet meal: refrigerator with filtered drinking water and ice maker, full-size stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, all of the kitchen utensils and appliances a foodie could desire and a vast array of local and Asian cuisine cookbooks.

You may never leave the lanai! The views of the brilliant blue ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai are spectacular. Nowhere in Hawaii but West Maui can you get such a view. During whale season you can use the binoculars in our condo to watch the humpback whales from your front row seats on the lanai, some as close as 100 yards offshore!

Our recently remodeled, 8th floor, oceanfront studio has been lovingly decorated to reflect the Hawaiian spirit. It includes all the amenities of a home away from home: daily maid service, central air conditioning, 32' high-definition flat-screen cable TV with HD DVR, Blu-Ray DVD, VCR, CD player, iPod docking station, FREE high speed cable and Wi-Fi Internet connection, queen pillowtop bed, easy chairs, dining table and a desk for your laptop computer, all with views of the ocean and spectacular sunsets. Our unit will provide you with all the comforts you desire.

The private oceanfront balcony allows you to sit and dine outside with complete and total privacy from your neighbors while enjoying the unparalleled 180-degree view of the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

In our oceanfront studio you will fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean waves. If quiet and privacy are as important to you as they are to us then you will revel in the peace and quiet that the Maui Kai concrete block construction provides.

Maui Kai has a lovely heated pool, Jacuzzi and gas barbecues. The pool area has picnic tables and outdoor furniture for hosting meals with friends and family. The pool cabana has a full kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven), bathrooms, lending library, ping pong table and dart board. It also has a FREE computer with a high-speed Internet connection for checking your email, surfing the web and printing your boarding passes.

Shortly before you leave for your stay in Maui Kai 807, I will email you my Local Girl's Guide to Maui. The guide started as a list I gave my friends of my favorite restaurants on Maui but over the years I've added information about my favorite local foods, where to buy them, farmers markets, beaches, snorkeling spots, hikes, excursions and of course shopping! The guide offers my unique perspective as a local Hawaii girl who has grown up, lived in and experienced the islands her entire life. I normally charge $10 for the guide but if you book our unit I will give it to you for FREE! Even if you don't book our unit, please feel free to contact me about purchasing the guide. For more information, please visit my Local Girl's Guide to Maui website.

Home Away From Home

Every year we book Maui Kai 807. It's our home away from home! We love the location, the views, and of course the Humpback Whales play right in front of our Lanai! The office staff are very pleasant and always willing to help with any needs that come up! Maui Kai has just recently done upgrades to the building and recreation area. Maui Kai 807's owner always gives us the latest monthly edition of her Local Girl’s Guide to Maui to take with us to Maui. This is a great addition for planning things to do, places to eat, places to see

Always excited and happy to return

We always book our stays at Maui Kai through the owner of this unit. She has been the consummate professional for years in booking Maui Kai for us. She can assist with any of the islands. Maui Kai is our go to place. It's quiet, private, secluded, and an exceptional value. There's a reason it's Number 1 on TripAdvisor for Specialty Lodging!

Great place to stay -- great location and view, and a nicely kept room

My wife and I stayed here for the better part of a week. Great spot. Not far from great West Maui snorkeling -- tons of sea turtles! -- and hiking along the northwest strip of road. (Definitely check out the Olivine Pools, one of the highlights of our trip.) The room was comfortable, clean, and nicely appointed. Daily cleaning service, free parking, and no extra fees that I recall -- all very much appreciated in a place as potentially pricey as Maui. The view is fantastic, looking out toward Lanai and Molokai. Staff at Maui Kai were very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay there again!

Another great week at Maui Kai

This was our second stay at Maui Kai, both of which we booked through the owner of this unit. You can't beat the location of Maui Kai - oceanfront, yet within walking distance of restaurants, supermarkets, snorkel shops, beautiful beaches, etc. We stayed in a beautifully furnished junior suite with everything we could possibly need. The owner of this unit was very helpful with choosing and booking the condo and always gives us her Local Girl's Guide to Maui. If you're looking for a hotel that feels like home away from home, as opposed to a big, noisy resort, Maui Kai is for you.

Our stay at Maui Kai

We stayed in the junior suite 807 at Maui Kai which we booked through Donna Bender. It was a beautifully decorated condo and had a great ocean view. We woke up to beautiful views . Donna Bender gave us her Local girl’s guide to Maui to take with us to Maui.

Maui Kai

We booked unit 807 through its owner Donna Bender who along with her husband were very helpful in making our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip very memorable. This unit was perfect, the view is amazing, we loved the lanai for our morning coffee, whale watching, cocktails and beautiful sunsets. Clean, comfortable and a great location. We enjoyed our morning walks on the boardwalk, did snorkeling nearby, very convenient to stores , restaurants etc. Donna shared her Local Girl's Guide to Maui with us which was wonderful in seeking information on where and what to explore in the area. We will definitely book Unit 807 if we go back to Maui.

Quick Maui weekend

This was my first experience to book the Maui Kai with Donna Bender. The confirmation process was very easy. Donna provided her Local Girl's Guide to Maui. Even though we live in the state, we are not on Maui enough to keep up. The guide was a perfect way to know the best new places to add to our old favorites! We are not fond of the mega hotel complexes so we found Maui Kai the ideal place for us. The view from the condo is amazing. The condo is nicely furnished and the location is fantastic. I highly recommend the Maui Kai and working with Donna.

Relaxing and watching whales

This was our 5th stay at Maui Kai and again we booked through owner Donna Bender. The Maui Kai is a very comfortable, low-key condo building with about 75 units. Great location right on the beach. The views are spectacular! Easy walking distance to farmer's market, grocery store, great dining and shopping sites. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Donna gave us the latest monthly edition of her Local Girl’s Guide to Maui to take with us to Maui . She really knows the Island and her Guide, which emphasizes locally-owned businesses, is full of very helpful descriptions of activities, dining locations, and local shopping like farmers’ markets and craft fairs. She updates it frequently and we use it every year. Donna is a pleasure to work with and the Maui Kai is a wonderful spot. We’ll be back!

Amazing stay!!!

We booked studio Unit 807 through its owner Donna Bender. Did tons of research before deciding on this unit after reading many many positive reviews. We booked about 4-5 months in advance and Donna was great with communication, quick to respond, and very helpful with travel tips. For an ocean front, ocean view room in Maui, you can't beat the price. The view from the room balcony was amazing! We saw sea turtles and a couple whales in the distance from the comfort of our balcony. The room was plenty big for the 2 of us. The full kitchen was stocked with all the silverware and pots/pans we needed to prepare meals. Housekeeping was great. Free hotel parking was nice. Friendly front desk staff. The hotel was within walking distance to restaurants but we rented a car, which is recommended. Overall, the trip was great, the room was great, and we would definitely book through Donna again.

Great Views!

Loved the Maui Kai! We stayed in a lovely condo that was right over the water! The prices were a lot less than the other hotels on the strip and it had a better view although there was no sandy beach in front. There is a small beach area a few steps away from the condo and that worked out nicely and there are lovely beached north of Maui Kai! We walked outside and next door to walk on the boardwalk and that was perfectly fine. Donna Bender was great in placing us in this condo and she had all the information for island activities as well! Thank you Donna!

Maui Kai Is A Great Place

I'm fortunate to be able to go to Maui twice a year. I've stayed at lots of different places, but I feel that the Maui Kai is the best place to stay. First off it is a good value and they don't add on extras like parking, Internet or resort fees.. Since all units are ocean front the view is great. Also the staff is very friendly and the location is good as it is walking distant from grocery stores and restaurants. When I go to the MK I always stay in Donna Bender's unit 807 because it has some extras like a VCR, a frig with an ice machine in fact her kitchen is better equipped than my own. Plus you get a copy of her Girl's Guide to Maui, which is full of tips of thing to do and places to eat.

Great location and balcony!

While not cheap, having a balcony that is almost directly above the water makes for some fabulous morning coffee Whale watching and sunsets with wine! The location of this condo is great, we could walk to several different places for breakfast or dinner. We could grab the jogging path that takes you down the coast. I would definitely stay in this unit again. Well equipped, comfortable bed and good location. Yup...expensive but you get what you pay for.

Maui Kai

We stayed in a 1-bedroom corner unit that Unit 807 owner Donna Bender booked for us. My wife and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary and we loved it. The accommodations were all we could ask for. Very clean condo with everything we needed to make our stay memorable. We will return to Maui again and without a doubt stay here again! The location is great, with plenty of on-site parking, access to the beach and a nice grocery store with other shops walking distance from Maui Kai. A nice boardwalk with plenty of other restaurants and shops along the way as well. The condo has spectacular views and the sounds of the ocean made for a very tranquil experience. Donna was delightful to speak with and answered questions we had about Maui in general and also Maui Kai Condos. She helped make our experience a memorable one. Donna gave us her Local Girl’s Guide to Maui to take with us to Maui which had much helpful information. The Guide told us everything we needed to know about Maui from restaurants, shopping, beaches and much more. We will consider staying here again.

Maui Kai 2018

We have now stayed at Maui Kai 3 times, all of which we've booked through owner Donna Bender. This year we stayed 19 nights in a one bedroom unit on the 6th floor. We love the location and the units we have rented have always been clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The views of Lanai and Molokai from our unit were spectacular, and the whales were absolutely amazing this year. We’ve already had Donna book us into a 1-bedroom corner unit next year, and can’t wait to return! Donna has been great in helping us plan our visits, and her ‘Local Girl’s Guide to Maui’, which she provides for guests who book through her, has been a very useful resource that has helped us discover many wonderful things to see and do while on Maui.

Oceanfront Beauty

We stayed in a junior suite that we booked through Donna Bender, owner of Unit 807. Location of this unit was stellar. Watch rainbows, sunsets and whales from the deck while hearing the continual sound of the waves. It doesn't get much better. To top it off Donna gave us a free copy of Local Girls Guide to Maui which is continually updated by Donna with excellent tips.
