Hale Hui Kai, Maui

Hale Hui Kai is small beachfront condo complex on one of Maui's nicest beaches - Keawakapu beach. The layout of the complex is unusual in that units surround an interior atrium/walkway with bedrooms (except oceanfront units) facing inward toward the hallway. But the complex is small (only 40 units spanning 3-4 floors) and foot traffic from the hallway isn't an issue.

Unit numbers ending in 2,4,6,8 and 10 face south while unit numbers ending in 1,3,5,7 and 9 face north. Unit numbers ending in 11,12 and 13 face the ocean. All else being equal, south facing and oceanfront units are more desirable because they have better views, get more natural light, and are prone to less wind. Oceanfront units average about 1250 sq.ft. while the rest average about 850.

Hale Hui Kai Address: 2994 South Kihei Rd, Kihei, 96753

As of April 2024, the average price of a 2 bedroom unit at Hale Hui Kai is $454. (Prices vary depending on the specifc unit, and season. Visit the rentals page to see unit rates. Holiday rates are often much higher and the averages don't include the booking and cleaning fees that rentals charge, or Hawaii's 18% accommodation tax).

Can’t beat the views and proximity to the beach with this stay. Comfortable accommodations with a well stocked kitchen. Our only initial challenge was from the description for bedroom 2 (two twins “or” a king bed - not “and” as listed), but it worked out fine for us since the couch was a sleeper sofa. We’d stay here again! Kim is a responsive and accommodating host.

Paint colors were very dark. great kitchen and lanai location. Fine for two people or a close family. Master bed pillows were practically touching the neighbors entrance was far enough front to have a pretty good view of the beach. We have stayed in several different units and do know the down side of the condo ( parking, laundry, neighbor house, noise). All in all the location o the beach is great.

This was oceanfront and only about 40 steps to the sand and water. Hearing the waves hitting the shoreline from our living room was wonderfully relaxing. The staff and Coach who is the manager we all very helpful. Coach even lent us his umbrella! We enjoyed dining at nearby Monkey Pod by Merriman and then further out to Paia for a great meal at Mama's Fish House. We drove up country to Kula Lodge, elevation 3200ft, for lunch and were treated to breathtaking views. We took long walks on the shoreline and saw beautiful sunsets. We will definitely stay here again!

Clean and spacious for our family of four plus Grandma. The location is amazing, close to Kihei as well as Wailea. We saw Turtles in the shallow water every day! Enjoyed snorkeling right outside the property. In the past we have stayed further south in Wailea. This property is on the same famous beach, Keawakapu, that we enjoy so much. Some beach toys and four beach chairs, plus umbrellas and beach towels. Great value!

Rating Details: The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: First and foremost, the location is unbeatable. However, it did have critters. Mostly, mice and roaches. The unit, itself, was clean; however it had these issues. In addition, there weren’t any screens on the windows and with the slats open, as you need them to be for air flow since there is only AC in the bedrooms, any critter can get in. We ended up staying somewhere else as this issue made everyone uncomfortable!

We had a wonderful time staying at the condo. It is at the beach, so easy to just walk out and swim. The beds were very comfortable and the reclining chairs were a hit. The condo is very well equipped from beach towels, chairs, cooler, bodyboard, floating tubes, to full kitchen appliances, internet and air conditioning. We definitely recommend it.

This condominium complex has an outstanding location. Being right on the beach and in a prime ‘sunset viewing’ area is wonderful. The unit itself had everything we needed and was quite comfortable. This was our first time to travel to Maui with a toddler and the air conditioning in this unit helped with nap and bed time for her. Our hosts were very responsive and easy to communicate with for which we were very thankful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.

The property is very expensive $450 per night and no half day stays. There are no BBQs on site. The views are great and the location right on Keawakapu is awesome. The building is designed to capture the view and the breeze. The parking stalls are tiny. The noise carries from unit to unit. Our unit had no cold or cool water in the MB ensuite shower. A/C units worked well. Second bedroom had a missing blind on one window. No privacy. All windows had immovable baffles (shutters that were painted and stuck either open or closed) The dishes were mix and match and some had cracks in them. The knifes were not sharp - not even close. The cutlery was low standard. The teflon frying pans are worn. The kick on the cupboard beside the fridge kept falling off. Loved the starter pack left by management. I've been to Maui 16 times over the years staying in Kihei at various condos. This place was alright but not exactly great value.

The unit is well equipped with plenty of kitchen equipment and basic necessities to start your stay. Overall the unit feels just a bit tired and has no air conditioning and took two day with all the fans running to get the mildew smell out. Still I would say it’s a nice unit. Hale Hui Kai is a nice small complex with a nice laid back feeling.

From the kitchen, with old, mismatched plates, glasses, utensils, kitchen table and chairs that are 20yrs old, the TV is small, should be at least a smart TV, pillows that should have been replaced years ago, etc, etc, etc. Just not worth the money.

A sweet-spot in Kihei, located at a beautiful beach. Very nice complex locate just before Waimea. Easy access to markets, shopping and a variety of dining options. Apartment is very nice and well equipped with beautiful terrace. Nice spot for sundowners. Only area of improvement is to get the ant problem around the kitchen sink fixed, not a huge issue, but annoying enough.

VRBO is making me change my review so I guess my comment is whatever vrbo wants me to say. There. Better?

September 2023

We stayed at this unit from July 11 to July 18 2023. We arrived at 3:30 pm (check-in is 4:00 pm). Maintenance was just finishing work on one of the bathrooms. They were leaving as we were arriving. They told us that they will come in the morning to fix it properly which they did. All was well with the unit. However, the two bedrooms had a less than pleasant odor. All rooms had AC which is why we selected this unit instead of the ocean front units which only had AC in the bedrooms. So, we sacrificed the ocean front view for the comfort of AC in all rooms. We've stayed in no less than 8-different units in this condominium, and our advice (if you are staying during June, July, August or September), choose units that have AC in all rooms. Our unit has AC in all rooms.

Absolutely loved our stay here! The air conditioning worked beautifully; the location right on the sandy beach was fantastic both for daytime playing/swimming/snorkeling and sunset family beach walks; great proximity to other fun activities and destinations. There is no real view from the unit which is clear from the listing, but there are tables and chairs in the common area near the pool with a great view - we brought dinner down there several nights for a sunset dinner, truly didn't mind the lack of view from the unit at all. Beds were so comfortable, kitchen was well equipped, and there was a good stock of beach supplies - chairs, coolers, umbrellas, towels and inflatables. Building management was very respectful and helpful the little bit that we interacted with them.

Friends from home helped us to find this fantastic rental in Kihei. The location was perfect. This was a little slice of heaven after a few days of chaos. The unit was clean and spacious. The access to the beach was incredible. We loved how close this was to Wailea as that is always a "must visit" location when we travel to Maui.Side note: the gentleman we worked with at Bello Reality was fabulous. The days prior to our stay had been scary and anxiety filled. He was just a delight (I believe his name was Aiden - so sorry if I have that wrong).

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.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Hale Hui Kai is perfect - right on a GREAT beach (never got too crowded while we were there, great for swimming, boogie boarding and some snorkeling), central to everywhere, and has a great old school Polynesian feel. We didn't want to stay in a massive condo or resort complex with thousands of other people where we had to schlep beach gear long distances just to get to the water. It's a smaller complex and very quiet, literally just steps from the beach so easy access if you forget something, want a snack, or just need a little break from the sun. #211 is a great spot within the complex - right in front with a large lanai with unbeatable views...plenty of room for our family of 4, we felt right at home! Will definitely stay in this unit again.

Rating Details: The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Rental unit was very nice. I should say, that we arrived 2 days before the fire in Lahaina, had happy hour in Lahaina on 08/07 (the day before the fire) and the aftermath of the fire understandably put a pall on our trip. We were (and are) heartbroken for the people who lost their homes and family. We spent time donating time, money and feeling extremely sorry for those impacted. It's hard to rationalize a positive rental experience under the circumstances.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: While the view, location, and remodeled kitchen and bathrooms are amazing there are some things that could really put this rental over the top. The 20+ year old heavily stained carpet in the unit needs to be replaced and there should be some sort of security on premise to enforce quit hours. Construction was also going on in another unit which was pretty loud. For this specific unit you can hear people going up and down the stairs and next to you in the evening. The view from the balcony is amazing though so you do pay for that premiums location. Overall the entire building as well is a bit outdated and musty and could use a a facelift.

Upon arrival, we were informed that the AC/mini-splits required service/cleaning, so we were unfortunately without AC for a couple of days, but a small price to pay for living in paradise.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We didn’t want to leave! Waking up to the gorgeous ocean views, breakfast on the balcony and the beach only steps away made this vacation great! The communal lanai downstairs was a great spot to seek shade and watch the sunset. The only thing that could have added to this amazing stay would be having access to the washer/dryer in the unit. It’s always nice to throw your beach towels in the dryer after a long day on the water. But the shared laundry facility located on each floor worked fine too. :) We can’t wait to come back!

Our only issue was that one of the showers didn't work. Unfortunately, the plumber wasn't sure if he might have to open the wall, so we opted to not have it fixed while we were there.

We really enjoyed this property for the ease of check-in and the roominess of the property. We were traveling with our two adult children so having enough places to sit comfortably to relax was important. We could see the ocean from the patio deck and the sunsets were spectacular. The air-conditioning was certainly a bonus as this part of the island can get warm. It made sleeping much easier.

We had an amazing stay on Maui. If you are looking for the perfect central location directly on one of Maui’s best beaches, look no further. Our unit #208 was clean and comfortable. Our family of five had plenty of space. The views of the ocean are breathtaking, yet the unit’s location still feels private. The unit had beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler, which was so nice to enjoy. The communication was excellent and extremely responsive, even though we didn’t run into any issues during our stay. Would highly recommend and look forward to returning. Mahalo!
