We stayed here for 7 nights. The location of this condo was great as it was right on the ocean. I chose this location because it boasted about the sea turtles right outside the door. It didn't disappoint. Everyday there were 2 or 3 turtles to watch swimming just outside the pool area. Being able to sit at the water's edge in the adjacent park to watch the fabulous sunsets was heavenly. The pool area and grounds were well maintained. Used the great BBQ area 4 nights. It would have been better to be a bit closer to our unit, but we made it work. The view from the lanai was spectacular. There were a few things not working or needed fixing which were done right away. However, the unit itself is in much need of an upgrade. It had old shag carpet throughout, glass shutters on every window which let in every sound form the outside, and none of the doors shut properly. The appliances in the kitchen were the only items upgraded. There were lots of kitchen utensils and appliances which were greatly appreciated. Some items were even left behind, such as butter, oil, spices, foil, which were very happy to have and we added to that list when we left. Housekeeping was something to be desired. It was quite evident that minimal cleaning had been done in this unit. The build up of spilled sauces etc that had accumulated along the side of the fridge was disgusting. I was told on the last day that they were replacing all the housekeeping staff. I am not sure I would return to this complex again as the pics on the internet made it look much better than it actually was.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hale Kai means "Home by the Sea" in Hawaiian, and we are well named since we're located right on the West Maui coastline where we feature scenic views of Lānaʻi and Molokaʻi directly offshore. Conveniently situated midway between the Ka'anapali and Kapalua resort areas, we're just a 10-15 minute drive from most any West Maui attraction. We are located in real community with a local park, a thrice weekly Farmers' Market, and numerous, reasonably priced stores and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Come stay with us and know what it is to have lived Hawaii instead of merely visited there! ... more less
