“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We were there from Dec 22-29/13
Most impressed with the property. It was well maintained, Ryan, the "Maintenance Man" was very friendly and prompt when called upon.
BBQ's outside were clean and ready each night for use.
We didn't use the pool but I noticed it being cleaned each morning.
Although the place was vey clean, we never noticed cleaners until our last day.

Would I go there again....YES!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the water are obviously higher in price. Each unit is owned therefore will have a d...

Aloha and Thank you for your review of Nani Kai Hale.
We are very happy to hear that you had a great stay and found this ocean front property to be clean and well maintained. Next time you are here you should relax by the pool and take a dip, or better yet, spend time at the ocean because it’s in your back yard! We hope that you return to Maui and revisit the Nani Kai Hale. If we can be of assistance when planning your next Maui vacation please give us a call.
Mahalo (Thank you),

Very nice and clean condo. The owners Rolf and Jennifer were very kind and discounted our price because of pool and construction on the property. We were very comfortable in our room. Enjoyed the balcony every morning and evening. Enjoyed the beach very quiet and basically private. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: One bedroom with 2 baths.

Don't book thru Nanikaihale.com website. It is poorly managed by Bello Realty. It always took us 4-10 days to get a response from them. I got to the condo late Thursday night and called them Friday to tell them that the stove & oven didn't work. They didn't call me back until TUESDAY...and said that they already knew it. They sent a repairman a week later and he didn't know how to fix it, so we never did have a stove or oven! They didn't tell us that the pool was going to be renovated while we were there. We found out on the website just before we got there. We got a LOT of small insect bites at night and we called to ask them about it and they said that it was because we had touched Mango...which we hadn't. Also, they had us send them pictures of the bites. I don't know why they never followed up with any of it eventhough they said that they would get back to us. There is construction next door, but you don't hardly hear it, however, the pool construction is VERY LOUD. I will rent one that is managed by one of the condo owners if I go back.
We stayed in #409, which has a very nice view! Any of the condo numbers that end in "9" are right above the ocean with 180 degrees view of the ocean. Condo's that end in "1" are at the back and just have a "slice" of ocean view. Although higher floors have better views. The condo building grounds & parking are very well maintained each day. They have a GREAT GRILL area!
LOCATION is EXCELLENT. It is very centrally located on Maui. Lahaina-15 min., Wailea-10 min., Kaului Airport-15 min., Roundtrip to Hana-All Day!
Five Palms in Wailea is a GREAT RESTAURANT! Right on the Ocean. Our kids got married there. Breakfast is great and they have a sunset dinner special.
I would stay there, again, if I booked with one of the owners, staying in a condo that ended in "9" and the pool construction was done. If the stove/oven would have worked and there wasn't all the construction...the price would have been appropriate.
FYI: The event center that is being built next door will be open in late June. I don't know how much noise that will add, but they said that it would close at midnight. I don't think it will be a problem...

Room Tip: Rooms ending in a "9" are ocean front and are by far the best deal. Rooms ending in a &qu...

We stayed at Nani Hai Kale for one week at the end of November. Here are some highlights.

Complex
-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.

Pool
-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

Beach
-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

Unit
-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.

Neighborhood
-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

#303 is a very nice remodeled condo. I love to cook,so for me the kitchen was something to be desired.....very small and I felt very claustrophobic trying to cook. The kitchen amenties need updating....the refrigerator needs to go where the stove is at and thus will provide a "little more open" feeling. I checked out other condos in NKH and it really makes a difference for a more roomier feeling to switch these appliances in this railroad car kitchen.. There are no door numbers, and fortunately on my arrival, I ran into the manager who showed me to the condo....they were painting the doors.....but I still see no condo #s being put up since painting completed....must have to guess! Get our your crystal ball. It is very noisy with the traffic on N. Kihei Rd, so suggest you get a unit more toward the ocean to alleviate the traffic noise.
Construction is going on next door which no one advised was happening when I booked...I guess a Wedding Center is being built........could be an added noise factor in the future. The unit has air in living room and bedroom when needed (especially for a few hours when the trade winds are not blowing)....
I would stay here again, but much closer to the ocean to get away from the noise on N. Kihei. Check out the building layout. Beach is very nice, pool in good condition....not alot of folks on the beach in front of building compared to the Kam I,II,III.....so if you want "action" this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: Get room closer to ocean away from N. Kihei Rd.(condos face north and south).....ocean is west....

I'm responding to the construction review posted on 10/14/12. I'm guessing one reason the construction project NEXT DOOR to Nani Kai Hale was not disclosed was because no one knew when it was going to start. Another reason might be because the construction doesn't begin until 8am when most guests are already up and out of the complex enjoying Maui. A third possible reason might be that everyone has a different noise tolerance and why upset anyone unnecessarily?? They have been very good about having dirt barriers up and hosing down the dirt. Anyone who's stayed in Kihei knows because of the desert climate dirt is always blowing so it's hard to say whether it's from the construction or normal Kihei dirt.

Regarding the "beautification project": That was done very quickly and did not prohibit anyone from getting to and from the beach. The pool was not closed as there are two entrances into the pool. The one entrance where they added a concrete walkway was closed for obvious reasons but the other entrance was open.

For anyone concerned about the 'Noise'....the construction has now been going on since approx June/July and the previous comment is the ONLY comment regarding it.

Room Tip: Higher floors have more of a view.

We returned to the Nani Kai Hale on September 23, 2012 for our fifth year vacationing in Maui expecting to find the same peaceful, enjoyable, beachfront property that we previously enjoyed. Neither the website nor Bello Realty disclosed that a large construction project started on the property next to the Nani Kai Hale. If that wasn't bad enough a few days into our two week stay, they posted a notice regarding a "beachfront walkway beautification" project at the Nani Kai Hale for the next two weeks. All day long, everyday for 15 days we were bothered by drilling, pounding, equipment noise, blowing dirt, and filthy windows and furniture in the condo. When they started the "beachfront walkway beautification" project they closed the beachfront lawn, pool, and they cancelled the traditional aloha friday coffee and donut gathering. When we complained to the realty company, they denied knowledge as to the extent of the projects but then offered to move us or give us a partial refund. The available places we could move to were less than desirable, and the partial refund did not come close to compensating us for ruining our vacation. Whether it was the Nani Kai Hale or the realty company who failed to disclose the construction projects does not matter, the fact that they cared more about their rental income than being honest to returning guests is just inexcusable. Please beware that this constuction project, a wedding event center, will be ongoing for a long, long, time. Unless you are willing to hear construction noise all day long and can bear to breathe blowing dirt coming in the windows and door, STAY AWAY FROM THE NANI KAI HALE.
