We stayed at Nani Hai Kale for one week at the end of November. Here are some highlights.
-Older building. Probably constructed in the 70’s but overall well kept up. Each unit has varying degrees of renovation, which can usually be noticed in the virtual tours on their website.
-This seems like a seniors complex. The average age of the people there was about 65. We only met one young couple with a baby, who we found out was there to visit his grandmother who is wintering there.
-Front Units had beautiful sunset views of the ocean, however they look on the BBQ area where the regular retirees congregate in packs. The bedrooms face on to the pool
-Elevator is close to the parking area.
-Plenty of parking. We never had a problem looking for a spot.
-Easy access to North and South Kihei Roads
-Back units were closer to the road & parking lot so may be noisier than the front ones.
-3 BBQ’s in area and always very clean. Mini fridges were available for use at the BBQ area as well.
-Plenty of lounge chairs and tables available.
-Coin laundry available on each floor.
-We didn’t see any management staff around. There was an office on site, but we never went in so I don’t know if it was even open but we had no problems.
-Wednesday nights they have a Pupus potluck night for the guests. We attended and got some good tips from the regulars.
-The pool is fairly small but it was quiet while we were there
-There are two entrances into the pool area, one comes from the parking lot, the other from the front
-Only 5 lounge chairs in pool area, but more located on front lawn area
-On a couple occasions the seniors held their aqua-size classes for an hour or so in the pool
-The beach is immediately in front of the property. There is a bit of a lawn area first.
-Clean beach, clean water. Not a lot of rocks or seaweed in the water.
-You can walk down the beach for a long ways
-We stayed in #409 at the front of the building
-This unit is totally renovated. It’s very spaciously organized with lovely furnishings and brand new appliances (including a fridge with ice makers and water dispenser)
-The lanai has a higher table with two chairs. It’s not overly comfortable but adequate.
-Air conditioning and fans worked great
-There is a washer and dryer in this unit but it’s locked up. That was disappointing. We would have been happy to pay a little extra for the use. Waiting on coin laundry is so inconvenient.
-Nothing much is really close except and ABC store, Farmers market (only on Fri, Sat I believe but very small) and Shave Ice stand
-This is in the intersection of North and South Kihei Roads, where it’s quiet busy
-Yes, there is construction going on next door. We did hear a lot of hammering and trucks while we were there but they were respectful not to begin before 9am and ended by 5pm’ish. It wasn’t unbearable and didn’t ‘ruin’ our vacation as another reviewer noted.
Overall we recommend this property, particularly Unit #409
