My spouse and one of my closest friends stayed here back in March 2007 in the Makai Suite. What a pleasure it was !
Wai ola was located in a nice, quiet residential area and the Makai suite was located on the main floor of the property, with the swimming pool and hot tub right in front of your room, along with some lounge chairs. Some days we were the only ones using the swimming pool and hot tub and it felt like our own vacation home at times.
The Makai suite was like a 1-bedroom apartment. My spouse and I stayed in the main bedroom, and my friend stayed in the futon along living room area, where there was a lovely window a/c unit, and there was a kitchen (but no stove). The place was enormous and there was more than enough room for all 3 of us. The bed was comfortable and we slept comfortable underneath the ceiling fan.
Kim welcomed us with a pineapple which kept an eye on for us, and on the 2nd day there she spiral cut the pineapple and left it in the refrigerator for us. How sweet !!! Every few days Kim would bake and the first day we have the best banana bread we have ever had, followed by chocolate chip cookies, and "oatmeal scotchies" which were like a brownie without fudge.
We had day trips to Kahului beach, Kaanapali beach, and we even drove up to the northwest to visit the olivine pools off the side of the freeway. Wai ola was the perfect location for all of our west maui adventures.
There was a Safeway and Longs Drugs down the street, and Front Street was only about 5 minutes away which was very convenient for dining and exploring in the evening, then at night we would return to wai ola to go swimming and sit in the hot tub before 9pm pool hours (at that time) were over. Wai ola was like coming home.
Vacations are about creating memories and now it is almost 6 years later and I am still having fond memories of our 2007 maui trip. We would return in a heartbeat.
