Hale Ono Loa #407
**Inquire about Kama'ina discount!**
Direct and expansive ocean views, a full view of the island of Lana'i, all the colors of the ocean, spectacular sunsets, beautiful swaying palm trees, views up and down the coastline and reef-surfing sea turtles are just a few of the daily sights you'll enjoy from this top floor, oceanfront condo located just past the resort community of Kaanapali. Situated on the ocean side of Lower Honoapiilani Road, and just three units in from the shoreline, you will fall asleep and wake up to the soothing sounds of the ocean. You'll love the cool trade winds blowing right through the unit.
This recently gut renovated condo features an18 foot balcony (aka lanai) overlooking the ocean, a full kitchen with mahogany cabinetry, granite counter tops, an undermount sink, all stainless appliances, travertine marble tile floors throughout and Hawaii style furnishings. The chic, gut renovated bathroom has a mahogany vanity, a granite counter top with an undermount sink, easy-to-step-in shower and ample storage. Clever pocket, sliding, plantation doors between the bedroom (with a king sized bed) and living area can be left open to feel the trade winds or closed for maximum privacy.
Though it may not seem like it, being on the top floor (level four), makes a difference view-wise and trade wind-wise. Other units on lower floors don't compare to HaleOnoLoa407.
Between roughly November and April from the private lanai or the communal sundeck, you will be treated to a spectacular sight of the annual humpback whale migration. These awesome creatures come to Maui from Alaska every year to give birth and one of their favorite locations to do so is right out front of the condo in the wide channel between West Maui and the islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i. In the peak months of January to March it's not uncommon to spot dozens of whales in an hour right from the condo.
Hale Ono Loa is a mid-century, low-rise condo complex that underwent a complete exterior renovation in 2010. Guests are able to enjoy a shared pool surrounded by tall palm trees and beautiful tropical gardens filled with fragrant colorful blooms all year long, direct access to the ocean, and two sundecks one at the pool level and the other alongside the ocean . Each guest can park one car in the onsite parking lot. There are shared gas BBQ grills and a shuffle board court. Each condo is privately owned and independently rented. The ownership is a mix of folks who rent out their places full or part time and some who live there full time. It's a peaceful, more laid back alternative to the large brand-name 'resort' complexes but still conveniently located to everything.
Note 1: This unit is located in the building 'perpendicular' to Lower Honoapiilani Rd., and not in the building that runs parallel. The bedroom windows of the units in the building that run parallel (unit numbers ending in '10' through '17') all face towards Honoapiilani Rd. and the parking lot of the complex. In those units you will hear cars zooming by and car doors opening/closing day and night. The units in the perpendicular building (unit numbers ending in '01' through '09'), and especially units closer to the water, like 407, do not have road or parking lot noise. You'll only hear the ocean and the swaying palm trees. There is no AC in this unit or any unit at the Hale Ono Loa condos. The added advantage of being in the perpendicular building, and especially on the top floor like #407, is direction the units face. The orientation of these units give you optimal trade winds blowing straight through compared to the units in the parallel building. This unit was gut renovated. Many of the units in the Hale Ono Loa complex have not been.
Note 2: There is no AC in this unit or in any unit at the Hale Ono Loa condos. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom and an extra floor fan. If you are sensitive to high humidity and heat, this may not the best complex for your summer stay. Feel free to message me any questions before booking.
