Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 13, 2013

My wife and I have traveled extensively and one of our favorite destinations is Hale Kai. Whenever we are in Maui, this wonderful little hideaway is there to welcome us. The location is ideal, away from the resorts and tourist areas of Lahaina, but close enough so that it's easy to pop into town for dinner or drinks. There are enough stores and shops within walking distance to make driving for forgotten supplies unnecessary. Our favorites, are the small fruit market across the street (there's a weekday farmer's market as well) and the fresh fish market a few doors down (they prep it for you in a pan which you pop into the oven). #211 has all the amenities needed, so if you don't feel like eating out, it's easy to stay in and cook. The community vibe is also nice. If you want company, there are plenty of friendly owners and return visitors to chat with. One of my favorite Hale Kai moments is evening when everyone gathers by the pool for drinks and the owners blow conch shells as the sun goes down. If you want to be alone, there's a small park next door to lie out in or have a picnic.

Room Tip: We prefer # 211, but book early. It's popular.

Great condo in an awesome location! I would highly recommend this unit and we can't wait to go back. Fully equipped with everything you will need and plenty of room. This unit was recently remodeled and everything was great! Excellent kitchen and all the tvs and furniture were up to date and comfortable. A wine locker and DVD player was also included. It was amazing eating our meals and watching the sunsets from the balcony everyday. Snorkeling right off the beach is just steps away. Barbecue worked great and the pool was clean and refreshing. Location can't be beat. Lahaina, Kapalua, Kaanapali are within 5-10 minutes away. Great snorkeling on all the beaches are very close. Farmer's market(get the fresh guacamole & fruit) and coffee are across the street and ABC and grocery store are down the street. My 8 yr old daughter loved the pool and seeing the sea turtles right at the beach everyday. The people staying there were all very friendly and helpful. This is a smaller complex, so there is no hassle getting beach chairs or using the pool. We used the laundry facilties and that worked great. Great value in the best location! You won't be disappointed and you will be planning your next trip the day after you leave!

We stayed here on the recommendation of one of the year-round tenants and were VERY pleased! It was so nice to have a condo with a kitchen to come "home" to after a busy day. We saved money by eating our breakfasts there (and eating them on the porch which looked over the ocean!) and some of our lunches and dinners. Why pay to eat out at a pricey restaurant for the view when you can make an easy affordable dinner and enjoy it on the porch while watching the sunset…it doesn't get any better! It's quiet and the pool is only open until 9pm. It has a park just next door. You can see turtles popping up out of the water in the evenings from the ocean edge. Unit (#214) kitchen was well equipped...even a pizza cutter! The office staff was wonderful and answered our questions. The laundry room was well equipped and nice to have available. There were even some boards (small ones) to borrow for trips to the ocean beaches. There was not actual sand beach in the back, but there is easy accessibility to other beaches in the area. It was a bit noisy from the bedroom with trucks along the road, but we were up early with the time change anyway. It was restful and beautiful and we would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: “Room #214 had an excellent porch facing the ocean…perfect for the sunset. However, the bedroom was...

I'm serious about my title, Hale Kai (and unit 216 in which we stayed) is an amazing property. It's a steal at their asking price, the location is incredible, the property is very well maintained and the condos are clean, well appointed and a wonderful home away from home.

Nothing negative to say about it at all. Ocean views are amazing.

Thanks for such a glowing review of our condo, Hale Kai #216. Our direct oceanfront views are stunning and hard to beat, while relaxing on our lanai. We look forward to hosting you next visit.

We had a great time here. A small complex, nice location, close to the ocean and friendly. The unit (104) was ideal for us and was well appointed. It was good value but our unit wasn't modern decor. We liked the park next door. It wasn't noisy and meant we could easily access the beach and it gave it a less "boxed in" feeling.

Room Tip: We liked the room on the lower level next to the park but other rooms had full ocean views.

Unit #213 was in the perfect location on the end of the second level with a clear view of the ocean. It is well appointed with stereo and ipod player, books and games for those times when you just want to relax. A supermarket up the road and shops opposite make it easy to stock up the kitchen. The murphy beds are great, and the louvres on all of the windows keeps it cool without the need for the fans, however ceiling and floor fans are provided. The crashing waves are quite close, and other guests in the carpark can be noisy (though most weren't) so if you're a light sleeper bring ear plugs. But why stay near the beach if you don't want to hear the waves?

Aloha Lisa,

Thanks for sharing your experience in our unit. As you mention, the trade winds help to keep our unit naturally cool, but it also benefits from the building's wide eaves and the fact that it's a second floor end unit with vaulted ceilings and extra windows.

The sound of the waves can take some time getting used to but we find that it's one of the things we're missing by the time we get home again. That and the fact that we can't just wear t-shirts, shorts and slippahs no more. But of course, that can be easily remedied by a return trip, so we'll hope to host you again some time in the future.

My husband and I stayed here in April 2013 for our anniversary and we loved it. The whole condo was very clean and comfortable. The downstairs bed was so cozy and we slept well. Everything we needed was supplied. There's a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. There is just enough beach next to the pool area to feel like you have your own private beach and there are plenty of sea turtles to watch. Good area to snorkel too. There's a great park right next door. The pool area is clean and the lounge chairs are a perfect place to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean, the islands and the sunset. We will definitely stay here again.
