Kai Makani Beach Villas in South Maui

Situated directly across the street from Maui’s longest stretch of white sandy beach, Kai Makani Beach Villas is one of Kihei’s finest and most recently built condominium communities. The tropically manicured 10 acre grounds host 112 units within 22 – two story buildings.  Plenty of open space coupled with a village like atmosphere make this a fantastic headquarters for living life on Maui.

There is a lot to like about this community, I am definitely partial to the location and happen to live right around the corner. Our family thoroughly enjoys the Kai Makani lifestyle; whether we are stand up paddle boarding, watching the whales frolic in Ma’alaea Bay during the winter, surfing south swells in the summer or snorkeling with the honu (green sea turtles) at the coral reef less than 100 yards from the shores. The vantage point for sunsets is among the best on Maui. The centralized location of the neighborhood provides easy access to almost any point on the island.

From the property during summer, the sun sets just behind the West Maui Mountains with the Island of Lanai in the background. As we enter winter, the sunset moves southward and goes down over the open ocean.
Haleakala hovers in the background. 
The beach park directly across South Kihei Road. The Island of Kaho’olawe is visible in the distance as is the Molokini Crater.
Beautiful pool area with plenty of room to lounge and soak up the ever-present Kihei sun.

There are five distinct floor plans at Kai Makani. There are four 2 bedroom/2 bath configurations ranging from 811 to 1,126 square feet. There is one 3 bedroom/2 bath option that is 1,238 square feet. There are 72 of the 2 bedroom floor plans, and 40 of 3 bedroom units. Short term or “vacation” rentals  are not permitted in this community, so it is geared more toward owner occupants and second home owners. There is a smattering of long term tenants, a fair amount of owner occupants and some owners who strictly utilize it as a vacation home. Pride of ownership is evident throughout.

Of the seven sales at Kai Makani in the past six months, six of these units were 3 bedroom floor plans. The lone 2 bedroom sale closed at $460,000. Pricing for the 3 bedroom units ranged from $520,000 at the low end and $595,000 for a front row ground floor unit with direct ocean views at the high end.
