Located on Keawakapu Beach, one of Maui's best swimming and snorkeling beaches, with unobstructed ocean views to the outer islands and beyond, this third-floor condo sets a spectacular tone for your ultimate Maui beach adventure. One of only two condo properties on locals-favorite Keawakapu Beach, Hale Hui Kai 313 is an air-conditioned, tastefully renovated oasis positioned a one-minute beach stroll from one of the most vibrant snorkeling reefs on Maui's south shore.

Hale Hui Kai is a low-density, low-profile (four floors) laid-back property, with only 40 units, and only 12 of those directly front the beach. This unit's coveted front-row venue creates the ultimate viewing platform for Maui's legendary sunsets and assures total immersion into the beach vacation lifestyle. Rent paddleboards and kayaks on the sand a hundred yards north, or venture south for the ultimate morning beach stroll, to the famed Wailea Beach Path. You can walk the beach to an array of fine dining options.

The view never gets old from the oversized beach-front lanai, which offers up views of Molokini Crater and Kahoolawe Island.

There is also a refreshing fresh water pool a few feet from the beach.

The unit offers every essential to create your Maui memories. Prepare your island feast in the well-equipped kitchen, outfitted with all the accoutrements and small appliances you will need. Lightning-fast internet (wired or wireless) serves every room, beach gear (towels, umbrella, beach chairs and cooler) and beach gear is included.

The Master Suite is fitted with a high-quality King bed and the second bedroom features a Queen. The bedrooms feature individual climate-controlled air conditioning stations, and the living room/kitchen areas are cooled by prevailing trade winds right off the ocean. Sleep to the sound of the lapping surf if you desire.

At first glance, the tasteful tropical décor may seem just that – but look closer, and you'll find authentic treasures lifted from Maui's past. Original paintings from iconic Maui artist Rik Fitch, a vintage utility pot rescued from the old Lahaina Sugar Plantation repurposed as lanai décor, a hand-made ukulele from Honolulu fashioned around the opening of a coconut shell, a bench salvaged from a reno at the ocean front Wailea Point, and an array of now-rare Koa pieces are among the pieces lovingly collected and displayed by the unit's owner, a rare original owner.

Hale Hui Kai 313 is tucked away on its own slice of beach paradise, yet a convenient walk to South Kihei's many restaurants and shopping options.

I’m very familiar with that part of Maui, so I knew in advance how great the location is. Fantastic view from lanai including sunsets. Keawakapu is consistently rated one of best beaches in world, and never disappoints. Swim with turtles, snorkel, boogie board, rent a SUP from next door is all steps away from Hale Hui Kai. I was there with 3 teenagers and was great they could walk to get ice cream, nails done, shops in Kihei and Wailea. The unit itself was clean and well appointed. I prefer open windows to AC and was fine with setup of AC in bedrooms only. Don’t think we used it. It was nice to sit on lawn furniture in shade or sun when beach too windy. Lots of whales in March, we could watch from lanai or lawn. So that’s all the great stuff and worth every $ to me, but just a heads up to not expect luxury accommodations, if that’s your thing. No laundry in unit, and could have used an extra set of sheets and beach towels. No common bathroom by pool, which was tiny and always full of little ones. Complex definitely older, but clean and well maintained/bug free. Overall a great stay and I highly recommend!

We loved this unit. The balcony is on the shady side of the building until about 4pm then you have the most perfect sunny perch to watch the sunset. There are NO BBQS on this property so you must cook inside. Other than that, it’s an excellent property.

If you are looking for beachfront views with great beach access, this is the condo for you. The two bedroom condo was just right for our group of two couples. We watched humpback whales at any time of day all week from our lanai/balcony. The kitchen had just the right amenities for a weeklong stay. Check-in and checkout were a breeze. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in the area. Mahalo!

This was our 2nd visit to this unit. The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed it, again. The unit looked north and west for a great view of the beach below. AC in both bedrooms. The unit is a little dated, but that didn't bother us. Great place !

First time user of Vrbo and this property. Property was as expected via its online presence and more. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves each morning was the lullaby needed. Balcony with a Gorgeous beach front view for morning breakfast & picture perfect sunset experiences was our favorite part. Would highly recommend this property and revisit in the future.

Hale hui Kai is a small group of condos right on the beach. The condo itself was clean, and well stocked with a full quality kitchen, plush bath towels, beach towels and beach towels and umbrellas. There are TVs in every room, and a lovely close up view of the ocean. The condo itself is decorated in a lovely Hawaiian style . The pool was unheated but pleasant after a few minutes to adjust to a cooler water temperature. Overall, I'd recommend unit 313 due to its excellent location to the water, with swimming and snorkeling right outside the unit. I would have given this unit a slightly higher rating except that it did not have air conditioning in the living room/kitchen area, (which most of these units dont have). the 2 bedrooms did have A/C however. We would definitely rent this lovely condo again.

Just two points of clarity that we missed up front: There is no air conditioning in main living areas. The living area and kitchen can get very warm - especially when cooking. Keeping the front door and patio doors open does cool the place off but how quickly will depend on the wind direction (which does change often.) This should NOT be a dealbreaker for anyone considering this place by any means, but guests should be aware. Bedrooms have dedicated cooling units that were more than adequate for sleeping comfortably at any desired temperature. Laundry machines are not inside the units but are instead in communal laundry rooms on each floor. There are plenty of machines and even an easy app that lets you know when your laundry is done and when other machines are available. We were worried when we arrived that this would be an issue, but it was super easy to use and nobody in our group complained. Outside of these items, the rental was PERFECT for our stay and the rental company was incredibly responsive. Quiet area, wonderful community feel in the building with other renters and owners, super clean building, steps from snorkeling, minutes from various adventures, and sitting on a pristine beach with sunset views from every room. 100% would recommend and return without hesitation.

This was the perfect place for me and my children to enjoy an amazing trip on Maui. Everything was very clean. With communication, but they got back to me so quickly and they were very transparent and honest and everything. I would definitely stay here again! And will be recommending this to others as well.

Hey! We loved our stay here at Hale Hui Kai! If you are looking for the perfect spot between Kihei and Wailea this is IT! The condo was a great short walk to the beach and has everything you need. Contact with the host was responsive and helpful.

This condo, to us is the PERFECT location if you want sunset views on the lanai, and easy/quick access to one of our (and many locals' ) favorite beaches: Keawakapu. We love the proximity to the ocean, the wraparound balcony, and the front-seat view to any activity happening at the Kihei end of this beach. Condo was a little sparsely stocked compared to others we've stayed in but we can't complain. We love the layout, appointments, and the art within the unit itself. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, and our favorite part was being able to take 2 flights of stairs down to snorkel every morning. We will definitely be back, hopefully to this same unit or building in years to come!

Location is just right for sunset and early morning beach walk.. literally on the beach. Unit itself could use a bit of a facelift. Guest bathroom toilet bowl tank takes forever to fill, so you cannot expect to flush back to back. TV in smaller room is not hooked up to cable nor is it a smart tv to hook up to wifi. No AC in the living room so we had to leave the bedroom doors open to cool the entire space therefore we had to compromise privacy for cool air.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
