We too were fortunate enough to have stayed in A204! What a treat. Seriously, from the moment you walk in it feels like home-18 feet from the ocean. This place was aaamazing! Many hours spent on those two balconys-reading, socializing, eating, sleeping and whale watching. The morning rainbows over Lanai and Molokai are unreal and look close enough to swim to. Friendly neighbors invited us to a great NYE party. It was good times!
BUT WAIT!
They recommend a tour operator that points you toward the Luau at the Sheraton. DONT DO IT! There was barely any food- 5 different things maybe. The whole thing is set up in a weird shrubbed lawn area with a view of the hotel not the ocean. The talent was sub-par and scattered around outside the shrouded, faux-tropical, resin chair and plastic wear luau. $400 for 4 of us to wish we stayed on our balcony to watch the sun set again:)

Room Tip: A203 is fabulous!

We had the pleasure of staying at Lokelani's unit B203 this year for our Xmas holiday and it was truly amazing. Having spent many holidays in Maui we had pretty high expectations and we were not disappointed in any way. The moment we entered the unit we were impressed and it never changed.

The unit was amazingly clean; the kitchen was organized so you knew exactly where to look (imagine a rental having a waffle iron! which came in handy for Xmas breakfast of macadamia waffles) and all amenities were included - plentiful towels, linens, music CD's, videos, DVD's, books, games, flat screen tv, two bathrooms, etc.

We really rate our places based on the quality and comfort of the beds and the master of this two-bedroom was a Trump bed - needless to say, the combination of that bed, the lull of the waves right outside our window which we could see and hear (floor to ceiling windows), made for a very relaxing time. The double lanais one off each level of the two-storey unit made for plenty of options to sit to watch the whales and turtles which are plentiful to see.

As others have mentioned, pool, BBQ, welcome basket, amazing hosts of Kim and Liz made for a magical trip. Will definitely be back!

Regards, Laurie

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean so all terrific. We really enjoyed B203 this trip.

We just arrived home from our fourth trip to Maui, and second time at this waterfront condo. Not only did we watch the turtles feeding on the reefs right from our two lanais but we were also treated with seeing humpback whales playing in the distance on several occasions.

When we arrived, there was a thoughtful welcome basket! The condo was so well equipped that we wanted for nothing. Having in suite laundry was what convinced us to travel with carry on only this time, and worked out really well for us. The kitchen was so well equipped that we could make dinners when we felt like it, and used the beachside BBQ a couple of times as well. The condo was very clean! And the bed in the master room was so comfortable! We also really appreciated the free parking spot that came with the condo, and the ladies in the office were really helpful when we needed some local recommendations.

The beach was lovely and snorkeling was pretty good - even had a couple close encounters with the turtles that love the reefs nearby. There is a large sandbar here that seems to go out really far, very safe to swim at. And don't get me started on the view of Molokai, sunsets, rainbows. The sounds of the ocean were soothing at night from the master bedroom, which had its own lanai and was perfect for sun tanning as well.

With all the space and the second bedroom/ bathroom, we could bring friends or family next time, and be very comfortable. We can't wait to go back to Maui and highly recommend this condo for couples and families!!

Room Tip: The master bedroom looks onto the ocean, has a california king, large TV and is on the second floor...

Arrived on Saturday around noon and of course, I'd forgotten my map on how to get to Lokelani. Having no I-phone with internet for directions. Called the emergency number and Kim the manager answered on her day off and guided me to our location. She and rest of staff were great as was my condo unit. We had a great time for the week we were there in late September with the weather being absolutely perfect! First trip to Hawaii in 37 years of marriage and boy did we enjoy ourselves. ***Note** Do you homework and review the different rooms on their web site when deciding which condo unit you want to rent. If ever you have the opportunity to visit Maui and not too keen on crowded hotels or resorts which charge for everything including parking, Lokelani is small but great!

Room Tip: Get on their web site as the condo units are individually owned and decorated. That way you can cho...

We are currently at Lokelani in C-102 and what was advertised on the website is what we have and more!

The condo is as described = tick
The staff were friendly, helpful and informative = tick
The price is reasonable = tick (my Scottish grandma would have approved)
The ocean is just outside the door and the waves just keep on waving = tick
Fun, sun and sand = tick

Come to Maui now - this place is grand and just what we needed as Canadians in need of a sun fix.

Thanks Lokelani - we will be recommending you to friends and family = TICK

This was our first time staying at Lokelani. We stayed in A105 for nine nights. This is a fantastic property and the location and views can't be beat. The property managers I corresponded with before renting could not have been more helpful. They responded to my e-mails immediately and were very, very nice.

There were pros and cons about the specific unit we stayed in. The good - all remodeled, beautiful kitchen and appliances (no oven, broiler or icemaker), lights for the floor, counter and overhead in the kitchen, granite countertops, nice flat screen tv's in living room and bedroom, super comfortable bed, bose, wi-fi, huge lanai with a screen you could lower to block out the sun but still be able to see the view! The complex is in a wonderful location right on the water, has gas bbq's, a beautiful pool, and beautiful grounds. Also, they provide a nice gift basket upon arrival in the condo with an extra packet of coffee, coffee cup, pen, cookies, macadamia nuts, candy and coupons, which is very nice.

The cons of A105 (at least for us) - very small water heater, no utensils for the bbq (we bought a bbq spatula and left it there for the next renters), no decent wine glasses (ok we're spoiled) - just thick stemmed goblets and two champagne flutes, super dark in bedroom (we were going to buy more light bulbs but kept forgetting).

This unit only had four bath towels and four beach towels. Yes, it had a stacked washer/dryer but I didn't really want to wash towels all week (its very humid in the condo and unless you put the towels in the dryer or hang them all over the lanai, they wouldn't be dry for the next shower (also, I like clean towels - what can I say). When I asked for more towels, I was questioned about how many people we had staying in the condo and felt like maybe we were asking for too much by asking for extra. The manager did give me two extra beach towels which helped a lot. We do a lot of swimming on Maui and its very nice to have more than four. We ended up buying a quilt to lay on at the beach and just used the beach towels for drying off.

There was no beach when we were at Lokelani. I know that the beach comes and goes but just be prepared that the beach may not be there. The walk to the beach next door (north) was a little tricky in that you had to walk down mossy covered stairs and through sometimes strong currents to get to it. We did not have a problem but some might. Also, the railing on the stairs does not go all the way to the bottom so you will have to grip onto the wall to steady yourself. That being said, perhaps there is a different path you could take to the beach next door - I am not sure because we just used the stairs.

We usually stay in a condo on Maui that is lived in part of the year so it has foil, bbq utensils, spices, wine glasses, lots of beach towels and bath towels, etc. We gladly replenish any of the supplies when they get low. Unit A105 had only saran wrap and a few ziploc plastic containers (the coffee filters did not fit the coffee maker for some reason - cone vs. round). I wouldn't have minded replenishing anything that was in the condo but I didn't want to buy a lot of supplies and then leave them there. The management provides paper towels, trash bags, laundry soap, toilet paper, kleenex, dishwashing soap, etc. However you will need to ask the office for refills when you are out. Our mistake was that we didn't plan it right and ran out on the weekend when the office was closed.

All in all, the Lokelani is a wonderful place for a Maui vacation. I would recommend it. If you like upgrades in your unit, but not many supplies, A105 is great. Our next door neighbors had nice wine glasses, etc. in their unit so I guess it all depends on the unit.

My husband and I had never been to Maui before and like all of you's out there were concerned with our choice of accommodation. We still cannot get over how lucky we were to choose Lokelani as our 10 days' vacation home (A205)! Was it good? No, IT WAS PERFECT! Their condo's are the perfect home away from home. Want to see green sea turtles from your balcony (lanai) every day? - check! Want to cook in a cozy kitchen with the groceries from the nearby fisher's market? - Granted! Would you perhaps like to chill at the beach without going too far? - Voila! 'Can't praise it enough! The staff are extremely friendly and we even had a welcome note from the condo's owners, which was awfully sweet. Pick Lokelani - you won't regret it!
