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.
- 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
