“amazing staff and beautiful beach...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2009

We had the best week staying at Hale Pau on our honeymoon. Waking up every morning and eating pancakes with fresh fruit on the balcony overlooking the small private beach...this place was idyllic.

The apartment we stayed in was fantastically well provisioned with an excellent kitchen with a huge fridge freezer. Plus not only that the view was like something out of an advert for the Hawaiian tourist board. But not only was it quiet with a beautiful view, but there were three shopping plazas within a ten minute walk and some fun bars. We liked the Sansei restaurant which had the most delicious mango and crab californian roll which was five minutes from the apartment, although cooking there was really fun. We bought 5 star fruit for $2 accross the street for our breakfast.

I woudl love to go back here, it was a fantastic place to stay

My husband and I stayed at the Hale Pau Hana for 4 nights in early December while celebrating our 20th Anniversary. The property is more lovely than the pictures. The grounds are perfectly maintained and the unit was very clean and in great repair. We stayed in an upper unit in the low rise building. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and we were able to watch wales from there with binoculars provided by the thoughtful owners. The beach is gorgeous and the lawn provides a shady oasis when you are tired of the sun. There is also great snorkeling right from the beach at both the north and south end. The location is perfect, across the street from our favorite Kihei restaurant Cafe O Lei. I only wish they had more 2 bedroom units so we could return with our kids.

Absolutely the best. The staff, the facility, the beach, the view...all of it. If your looking for a relaxed vacation, this is the place. All of the units are owned by individuals and most are rented out until the owners are in town. It's clean and neat, the grounds are in great shape. The beach is county run but who cares with the view that you'll have. The reefs are 100 yards from the property so you can actually walk right up to them to snorkel. The sunsets are amazing, if fact, we where here when the owners were planning their annual meeting, they all would come down with a glass of wine or whatever, sit and talk with everone and watch the sun go down. That was every night. Great places to eat within walking distance in both directions. They have a laundry facility right on the property which comes in handy- no running in the car to find a place to wash clothes.

Of all the places my wife and I have stayed around the world, this is in fact a top 3- one of the best vacations we've had in years. Make sure you stay for more than a week to enjoy the whole package. We'll be back next year for sure! Thank you Hale Pau Hana for a great stay!

Stayed October 2008

We stayed at Hale Pau Hana for a week this March. This was our second trip to Maui but first at this condo. The location simply can't be beat. Beach is beautiful, grounds are well kept and chairs are placed at the beach edge for wonderful ocean views. Snorkling was not bad off the rocks at the end of the beach. Sitting on the grass watching the whales everyday was amazing! Our unit was a bit older and needed a reno but it was very clean and comfortable and the view more than made up for anything else. Lots of places to eat nearby from Moose Mcgillicudy's 3.00 Happy Hour to Cafe O'Lei across the street. If you like a stress free vacation then come to Kihei and relax. Took us over an hour in bumper to bumper traffic to get to Lahaina and Kaanapali. Once there had to fight crowds on sidewalks and shops. Glad we went but glad we didn't stay there. Wailea is ony 5 minutes drive south and is also beautiful. Hale Pau Hana is simply a wonderful place to spend your Hawaiian vacation.

Just returned from a great trip to the Hale Pau Hana, It was our 15th trip to the islands,but 1st time back to maui in 10 years.

We have always stayed at Hale Pau Hana in previous years and it never disappoints us.

The rooms are great and would recomend a bottom floor unit in the low rise buildings , they make you feel like you are right on the Beach .

Just open the large sliding door and let the fresh Ocean Breeze in......

booked direct with hph on a recommend from a friend

would have liked a bigger bathroom and a/c in the living room but we managed just fine as it is

great condo --- in excellent shape-- the office and the grounds staff go out of their way to make the place wonderful for your vacation--------the ocean front condos are worth their weight in gold -- will be booking again for next year within the week

also- have read about the a/c s that have timers on them -- ours did not --you had a remote control and you set the temp and the fan speed and it ran til you shut it off

  • Liked — the location -- the staff and the overall property
  • Disliked — would have liked a larger bathroom and a/c in the lliving room --but there was an overhead fan

Stayed in unit 703 for a week. It had everything we needed, even good quality snorkel gear. Didn't do any cooking (I was on vacation!), but the kitchen seemed to be well supplied. Fresh towels, soap, etc. and garbage removed every other day. Tuesday evening entertainment was great. Very nice beach, not crowded at all. Only saw one cockroach the whole week, our fault, we left the door open. The room was exactly as depicted on web site. Would definitely recommend Hale Pau Hana.

  • Liked — good quality snorkel gear, other beach items and cooler available for use
  • Disliked — air conditioning only in the bedroom, and only operated with someone in the room
