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.
There are five distinct floor plans at Kai Makani. They include 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. Overall, there are seventy-two 2 bedroom floor plans, and fourty 3 bedroom units. Short term or “vacation” rentals are not permitted in this community. It is geared 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.
