Recent Hale Kai O Kihei Reviews

We had an amazing stay at this property. The sunsets were different every night and never disappointed. We also spent time watching the whales. It was surprising what we could see and enjoy from the lanai. Beach walks daily with sea turtles making their appearance as well. The property was clean and comfortable. It was quiet, yet we were so close to restaurants and other local spots that we also enjoyed.

Lovely stay. Only thing I would recommend is checking the drains between stays.

We stayed in this condo during the summer of 2022 and wanted to come back during whale season. It did not disappoint! We spent many hours on the balcony watching the whales. What a treat.

Clean and well stocked condo. A little outdated but fine for what we needed. Beautiful sunsets every night! Beautiful long beach for walks. Water not as swimmable as we were hoping due to large lava rocks but still nice. Great pool. Great central location to venture to other spots from. Kihei is a neat little town. Would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our stay in this 3rd floor unit. Our priority in lodging is a real Ocean Front view, and it was the best we have ever had. The location was very convenient to Kihei restaurants, grocery store, beaches, and turtle watching. We saw many whales from our lanai. We actually slept on the sofa bed to enjoy the view and the sound of the surf. The furnishings were more than adequate. AA Oceanfront Rentals were great to deal with, and kept in touch to make sure we were happy.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great place to stay overall. Perfect size for two people. The location off of the main road keeps the road noise from effecting your sleep. The view of the ocean is wonderful. The lanai is right over the hot tub, but the other tenants were respectful of the quiet hours when we were there.The laundry is close by and on site. Bring a lot of quarters. The sliding glass doors are in need of repair and are difficult to move.

Great location with a beautiful view! A comfortable, well-equipped condo with everything we needed, in a quiet neighborhood, and within easy walking distance to great restaurants and a grocery store.

The condo’s location is perfect. Oceanfront view and a quiet neighborhood. Lots of stores and restaurants nearby. We were surprised by how dated the unit is other than the new carpet. However, it was comfy, very clean and the price was reasonable for Maui so we would absolutely stay here again. Anita is lovely to deal with as well. If you require granite/quartz countertops or can’t climb 3 flights of stairs multiple times a day then this is not the place for you

What a great stay, great property! Just a couple km from lots of restaurants and shops Beach was great. But the real pleasure were the hosts, our plane was delayed two days so I messaged them at 5am (not thinking I would get a response quickly) and they responded within minutes and were able to accommodate us for another two nights. Would highly recommend

Excellent location for ocean front property located in South Kihei. The beach is only a few steps away and you get the perfect view of the ocean from the lanai. Property is very clean and quiet. The room is exactly what shows in the description and pictures. Very clean and has all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. We would love to stay here again for our next visit to Maui!

Fantastic condo! We were greeted by welcome treats, helpful information, and the beautiful view of the beach and gorgeous sunset! The apartment was very clean, comfortable, nicely updated with a great kitchen, and fantastic lanai. The condo included thoughtful additions such as lots of extra outlets for your electronics in the kitchen and living room, folding beach chairs, beach bags, coffee, and even binoculars to look for whales on the wonderful lanai! We looked forward to visiting the large Hawaiian green turtle napping on the beach in the late afternoon/evening. We would definitely love to come back!

What a great condo to stay at for 2 weeks! Very clean and the hosts were very accommodating to any needs I had. Had everything I needed to enjoy the beach and the condo building including two BBQ’s that I used a few times. Was a bit windy, for many days so the water was pretty rough and using the beach umbrella challenging! There were some big rains but the area I was in was not flooded like other areas north and south. My only critique is the ac is in the living room and getting cool air to the bedroom area was challenging, even with the provided fans. Just a minor issue though. I would stay there again! Thanks guys!!

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this condo. The sunsets and beach / ocean views were amazing. The Condo is clean and simple - a great home base for our adventures around the island.

We loved everything about this place and our stay. The building, and especially this unit, has the most amazing views. We stayed during peak time and the property still wasn’t jam packed like some of the others ones. Our kids spent lots of time in the pool and often had the pool to themselves. The beach out back was also very relaxed and less busy than some of the others. The locations was perfect for all of the activities we did. Christine and Pam were great when we dealt with multiple flight changes and were so accommodating about check in and check out. Their kind and flexible approach truly made such a difference for our vacation and we couldn’t thank them enough.

Very comfortable condo. Easy walk to grocery store. The beach is great to walk on and listen to from condo. Lots of lounge chairs with massive lawn to lay out on. Condo has beach chairs as well. The quietist air-conditioner on patio. Very nice stay.

Spent every morning on the lanai, then walked the beach late afternoons. The property manager decorated a christmas tree out on the lawn so we could watch the sunsets with the palm trees and a lit Christmas tree in the foreground. Simply lovel!

We enjoyed our stay! Close to all the comforts of Kihei yet tucked away on an ocean facing side street. The home was the best equipped rental we have had! Thanks for a lovely stay!

January 2024

We had a wonderful stay here. We loved starting our day sitting on the balcony, and it was the perfect spot to watch the sunset. It was so fun whale watching from the beach, and there were plenty of places that we could walk to for lunch or dinner. There was easy parking right out front, and we were close to lots of other beaches and restaurants. We would absolutely stay here again!

Enjoyed a few days here. Unit is as described and provides what you need. The location is prefect, spent hours watching whales, and generally relaxing on the lanai. Good pool and the easiest access to the beach. Only thing to note is it is a three story walk up but the stairs aren’t that bad, even for an older person like me with bad ankles.
January 2024

The location was great. Central Kihei. Walking distance for most things but we had a car for sight seeing.

PERFECT location in Kihei, but just outside of the super busy section. Walkable to so much. Easy parking, easy check in. Condo is beautifully updated, fully stocked with everything you could need - beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, fully stocked kitchen. Comfortable bed, extremely clean. Lanai was perfect for sunsets, even saw several whales. Will definitely be back!

This property was absolutely incredible and the people that hosted us were nothing but the best. Everything was 5 star. Even the check in process and everything that they already had waiting for us made it so easy. I would recommend this to anybody That's looking for an incredible stay in Maui.

Very nice, but overpriced
Charles G.
January 2024

Really nicely laid out unit. Always a view of the waves! We enjoyed the beach and the grass before the beach and had fun playing shuffleboard on top of that. That one was a new one for us. Only negative isn't the owner's fault, but there is a rooster across the street who likes to let everyone know that it will be dawn in about 3 hours. Highly recommend for families and especially young kids. The water is very shallow for a very long way. Good house communication would not hesitate to recommend.
December 2023

The property was perfect! Great location in Kihei, quiet, fully outfitted, well-cared for unit. John the condo manager does a terrific job overseeing the grounds and public areas. Anita our host was amazing, providing all the information we needed prior to our arrival and followed up with us during our stay. Very hands on, which is reassuring. We will definitely check availability of this unit during our next visit to Maui. Mahalo!
