We used this spacious, beautifully decorated condo as our home for two weeks. Kristin made the entire booking experience very easy, answering all of our emails within hours.
Hale Ono loa is just minutes north of the busy tourist area, minutes from stores and beautiful beaches and is the perfect starting point for daily beach and road trips.
After returning from our outings, we enjoyed relaxing dinners on Kristin's lanai watching the amazing sunsets, the ocean and the whales. Most evenings we watched the sea turtles feeding directly in front of the building.
You will only need groceries and your clothing as everything else is already there.
I highly recommend Kristin's home in Maui, clean, spacious and comfortable, as a place to relax and enjoy the sites of paradise.
Thank you Kristin for sharing your home with us.
This was a wonderful place to enjoy a short summer vacation. The location is perfect: close to restaurants and grocery stores, shopping, and an easy trip to Lahaina. I loved how homey the place was, and felt welcomed the moment I walked in. It was great to have a pool and access to the ocean. The view is incredible, and it was a highlight of each evening to sit out on the balcony and relax after diving and being out all day. There was everything I needed to make my time there enjoyable. I definitely hope to stay again sometime!
Found online and found the owner to be very helpful as we had to change days and then add two days. Condo is great for two adults maybe a child but too small to share with a second couple close to local market with a farmers market three times a week. Very close to Napili beach and a short drive to Kanaapali which had the best snorkeling we found during our stay.
The condo was perfect! Good location and good size one-bedroom apartment. The unit had all we needed to have a comfortable stay. The bed and sofa-bed were comfortable. The bathroom shower was great. Kitchen was well supplied with large and small appliances. Lots of towels and linens were handy. The place was quiet at night and sleeping well was not an issue. Actually, we left the patio glass door open all night long to have some the sea breeze in. Beautiful outdoor pool and garden facing the ocean. We loved to watch the sea turtles doing their own things in the water.
We had a wonderful time in Maui during the 2015 Christmas break. We really enjoyed staying at your apartment and will definitively contact you next time we visit Maui.

We had previously stayed in resort condos in Kaanapali and decided to try a smaller, independent building in Honokowai. The owner Kristin was easy to contact and a pleasure to deal with. This two week stay was very good value particularly as there are no resort fees to pay. Cleaning fee was reasonable at $120.
The condo was clean and spacious and was equipped as described on VRBO. Nice to have a full kitchen. No need for AC as the breeze and ceiling fans were more than adequate. The view overlooking the pool area, palm trees and out to the ocean is amazing and staying in July in this unit means not having the sun heating up the condo in late afternoon.
We were often the only guests at the pool, on the sun deck, using the BBQ's as it is low season.
Access to the ocean right off the property is straightforward but can be tricky when the tide is in but with a little practice you are swimming off a sandy beach or snorkelling with feeding turtles who visit every day! At low tide there is full access to the shore behind the adjacent properties and Honokowai Beach Park.
Three minute drive to the Times grocery store, snorkel rentals, ABC store and other shops. Also three minutes drive away the beach walk starts opposite the Times grocery store in the park and makes its way through the Kaanapali resorts, to Whaler's Village and beyond. Lahaina just 15 minutes drive away, the new outlet stores are a wonderful addition!
The condo location on the lower road also means easy driving access to all the great beaches and excellent restaurants in the area. This a great starting point for daily excursions.
