We were lucky to enjoy Leina’ala 405 on lovely Maui for the week of Jan 12-20. The unit is perfect! Two bedrooms, one with a double and the other with two twins. We were sold on booking this place based on the photos of the view from the lanai – it was spectacular – the iconic Hawaiian sunset view of the ocean with swaying palm trees. The building does have an elevator which we used for our luggage but then we used the stairs thereafter for some exercise. The resident managers are super nice and always willing to chat with you and wish you a nice day. The pool is small but super cute and very clean – plus there never seemed to be many people using it so it was like having your own private pool anyway!
The beach in front of the building is nice for walks but sadly not for swimming – that would be the only negative thing I have to say. Kite boarders did like the area on a few windy days. As such, I do feel that a car rental is necessary if you stay here. Besides, there’s so many great beaches to experience I wouldn’t want to stick to just one anyway! (other than other condos there's not much in the immediate vicinity of Leina'ala - I'd say everything is a drive - or a kinda long walk)
If you want to taxi into Kihei for some drinks, it’s about $10 each way and the taxis seem to be readily available.
We very much enjoyed our time at Leina’ala!
