“Comfort steps from the beach”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

My wife and I spent a week in Hale Kamaole 102 in February. This unit is a one bedroom ground floor unit right next to South Kihei Road. It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The queen bed was very comfortable and the living space had ample room and plenty of seating. The kitchen was well stocked with any utensil that you could possibly need. Having a washer/dryer in the unit meant we were able to pack very light since we could do a small load of laundry every day. The lanai led out to the large grassy area where residents would blow their conch shells everynight at sundown. The downside of being so close to the road was the noise but the upside was the walk to the beach (Kamaole 3) took a minute. We love staying in this part of Maui because we can walk to a number of restaurants and shops. We'll definately stay at the Hale Kamaole again.

We stayed in a ground floor condo. No view of the ocean and wasn't remodeled. The condos are older so I would try to get a remodeled one if possible. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. No problems with noise. Lots of Canadians there, we are from the states. Made many nice aquaintances. Fun meeting everyone at the BBQ's at night. These condos are right across the street from a nice beach. Good restaurants within walking distance. We would stay here again as the price was right.

Thank you for your kind review of Hale Kamaole. I am not sure if you stayed in one of the condos we manage, but we appreciate your feedback about the grounds, BBQ area, and close proximity to restaurants like Fred’s Mexican Cantina and Moose McGillycuddy’s. We hope you also got to participate in the sunset conch blowing celebration that the property hosts every night!

Mahalo,

Just back from another Christmas stay at Hale Kamaole.
The grounds are beautiful and the staff all do an outstanding job.
Our unit was one of the best we have stayed in.
Close to the pool and bbq's and a great view of the ocean.
We saw whales on numerous occasions.
We wathed the "Hale Kamaole Conch Band" every evening as the sun was setting.
It is a great spot for all travellers of all ages.
We will be back again next year!

Just left after a week long visit and would definitely return. I don't think we could have been in a better spot in Kihei. It's on the south end of town so out of the immediate chaos but still walking distance if you want to have dinner and drinks out and avoid the car. Very family friendly. Beach is across the street. Our unit was tucked in and in the back and we still had a view of the ocean from our lanai. Prices were fantastic and unit met all of our needs.

Only issue we had was the neighbors above us. It seemed most folks were low key but this group was loud and rude when I ask them to be quiet (well after suggested quiet time). But, this happens at everywhere so I just hoped for the best. Luckily they checked out the next day so I just forgot about it.

Just finished my 12th (I think, but have lost count) stay at Hale Kamaole - in my fourth different unit, this one (341) with a spectacular ocean view. Once again, the barbecue pit camaraderie with (mostly Canadian) other visitors was a highlight. The location is sensational, the price right for a nice but not upscale 2-bedroom condo. The staff is always quick to resolve any issues. Full of happy kids, as always is the case over the holidays, but this senior citizen was every bit as happy. As a diver, I love the 3-minute walk to the Kihei boat ramp; as a beach lover, how can you beat being across the street from one of the nicest beaches on Maui? As a road cyclist, I was in a great starting point for several routes.

We love the Hale Kamaole, and have stayed here several times over the past 3o years (!) It has a large property, creating a feeling of spaciousness away from the hustle-bustle of the busy season in Kihei. The location is second to none, across from Kamaole III beach, so lovely beaches and a large park are close to hand. The 4-way barbeques are a great place to meet people, and they have two pools and a tennis court. It's very family-friendly, but usually quiet place: (one caveat: if you want quiet, don't come between Christmas and New Year's.... there are some large family gatherings that tend to take over the grounds.) Other than that, it feels like a home away from home, with usually well-equipped condos at reasonable prices. The Owner's Coop is very helpful, and things are generally very well kept up. We stayed in unit#119, and were very happy with everything. Hope this helps... we don't hesitate to reccommend it.

Room Tip: If you are able to book through an owner, it may save you some $$ but the Co-op are very helpful and...

We have stayed at Hale Kamaole on two different trips and we were completely satisfied with our unit. (We rented from the owner.) The grounds are extremely well kept, pools and outdoor grills are cleaned daily, and all staff we met were helpful and friendly. We would definately stay there again. Beach across the street is good swimming and snorkeling and other beaches are a short drive (or walk). A quiet,and well-run condo complex with lots of green space make this a highy recommended lodging choice in Kehei.

Room Tip: We like the 3rd floor (top) for the view. If you have children the first floor might be a better opt...

Mahalo for your review of the Hale Kamaole. Although you did not rent one of the condos we manage, we still appreciate your kind words about the grounds, staff, and rooms. Kamaole Beach Park III across the street is indeed a very popular family beach here on Maui that guests at the Hale Kamaole love to walk over to.

Happy travels,
