The Gem of Maui: An Oceanfront Maui Kai Condominium

1 Bedroom/1 Bath Penthouse with Gourmet Kitchen and a Large Lanai, Sleeps 2

Wondering where to stay in Maui? If you’re someone who likes to get as close to the ocean as possible, “The Gem of Maui” condo might be your new favorite place. Our condominium complex, Maui Kai at Ka’anapali, is one of the closest to the ocean in all of the Hawaiian islands. 


With one bedroom and one bathroom, “The Gem of Maui” is a pitch-perfect honeymoon suite. Sleep late on a sumptuous king bed, invigorate in the bathroom’s walk-in shower, and make breakfast at home in your kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need—right down to the waffle iron.


Enjoy resort-style comforts with no resort fees. Perks include free parking, A/C, free Wi-Fi, and entertainment like a flat-screen TV and a docking speakers for streaming your vacation playlist from your device. 


From our 10th-floor penthouse, you can take a front-row seat for whale watching, stunning sunsets, and, of course, endless ocean views to take your breath away. The lanai sits elevated above the sea, with a table for four and a sunlounger. 


Slide open the floor-to-ceiling glass doors from the living area to the lanai and let the sea breezes flow in. The indoor dining table also has an ocean view, making it a gorgeous spot for a romantic dinner—no reservations required. 

Our Location

Iconic Ka’anapali Beach couldn’t be any closer than it is here at The Gem of Maui. Go from “napping on your lanai” to “toes in the sand” in a minute flat. We even provide the beach gear—chairs, boogie boards, coolers, and beach towels—for you to use during your stay.


Ka'anapali Beach earns its title of one of the best beaches in the world, with its three enticing miles of powdery white sand and the open-air Whalers Village, which is famous for its oceanfront dining, shopping, and its whaling museum. There’s also a grocery store within a 5-minute walk so you can stock your condo’s kitchen. Or head Maui Grill Ka’anapali and Roy’s, both just minutes away.

Testimonials The Gem of Maui

Amazing experience and location

Tonja H. (VRBO/HomeAway, Stayed: September 2018)*****

First of all the condo is immaculate. Comfortable and great location. When wanting the ultimate beach experience exit the beach side of the building. Walk along the beach to the left until you find your ideal spot. The snorkeling was full of a variety of beautiful tropical fish. I hope to return soon!

Beautiful Views

Mark M. (VRBO/HomeAway, Stayed: August 2018)*****

We really enjoyed our stay at Maui Kai, the views of the ocean from the lanai were breathtaking. All the amenities we needed, condo was clean, bed was comfortable, and it is close to great restaurants and shopping.

I hope Cathy can accommodate us when we return. Thank you for having us.

Clean, staff very helpful, available always!

Linda W. (VRBO/HomeAway, Stayed: August 2018)*****

Comfortable, beautiful sites from the lanai, staff very helpful!! We will recommend the “penthouse” to those we know visiting the island! A fabulous experience... ♥️♥️♥️


Linda Wilson, Fort Worth TX

Incredible view; Helpful owner; AC; Close to town; Slightly uncomfortable bed

Emily K. (VRBO/HomeAway, Stayed: July 2018)*****

Pros: Breathtaking view, AC, owner is super responsive and helpful (read below for more info), close to shops/food, tv has cable

Cons: Bed is pretty hard (we are used to super soft beds)

Seeing pictures online is one thing, but when you walk into this apartment, the view will absolutely take your breath away. My husband and I spent the first several days of our honeymoon here, and we would come back in a heartbeat. We loved waking up early to watch sunrise (even though the condo faces west, the sky/clouds/nearby islands change colors and are absolutely beautiful to watch), eat breakfast on the balcony, and plan out our day. When looking for places to stay on our honeymoon, we forgot to consider air conditioning, but we were so happy that the condo had AC.. the condo faces straight west, so the afternoons can get pretty warm if the AC isn't running, but we stayed cool and happy. There is a tv with cable if you want to kick back and relax. The bathroom included some amenities like shampoo/conditioner, and even provided a black towel labeled "makeup" so that I didn't stain any white towels removing my makeup. The location is great - a few miles away to Front Street with lots of restaurants, and its even closer to a couple local shops/stores. You can also walk to the beach very easily from the Maui Kai. We didn't love the bed - we found it extremely firm and not very comfortable, but everyone has different tastes when it comes to mattresses, so no blame here. We had a couple issues arise during our stay, and Cathy (the owner) was extremely helpful and professional in both cases. The first was some unexpected construction that went on next door to our condo. We were not thrilled when a jackhammer started up mid-morning and continued on and off throughout the day. We immediately contacted Cathy to complain that we couldn't even stay in the apartment, and she was quick to apologize and offer us a refund for the entire day. She had not received a heads-up from the neighbors that they chose that day to tear up tiles, so we did not blame her, yet she still made sure we were taken care of. Secondly, my husband and I were very stupid and locked ourselves out of the condo on our last night in Maui. We accidentally brought the lockbox key inside of the condo (don't do this), and then forgot to bring any of our room keys with us out to dinner. Cathy called someone on the island who came to let us back in.

If you can stay here, don't pass it up.

Maui getaway.

Martha M. (VRBO/HomeAway, Stayed: June 2018)*****

The condo was lovely. Great view from the lanai. It is a short walk along the shoreline to get to the beach where you can set up the chairs. The pool and hot tub were nice and never crowded. We used the grills by the pool every evening.
