This was a great location and met all our needs perfectly!

We had 3 lovely days in your condo! We found the condo to be exceptionally clean and fully stocked with everything we might need. We loved watching the whales from the sun deck and were greeted with a beautiful rainbow on our last morning. My only negatives were the difficulty printing a parking permit as we had been on a different part of the island prior to our stay here. There was also some street noise from construction trucks and blaring radios…nothing that the condo owner could control. The lack of AC was not as issue as the breezes were delightful. We would return here again!

My son and I stayed here for 9 days. We had the best time. Perfect place for us. Having the pool right there was excellent. We got to see whales and a spectacular rainbow from the large deck all guests have access to. It was very close to grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and shops. We rented a car and would suggest doing so. We were close to so many beaches and activities. We had a very long travel day and my son was too tired to stop and get a few things for the morning so we went directly to the condo. In the morning I could not have been more grateful for the coffee and tea that I found in the cupboard. Having a few basic things already there was so nice. Communication was great. I loved sitting out on the lanai sipping coffee. It is a beautiful spot. In reference to other reviews.. I saw literally one mosquito as the only bug and that is because I left the doors to the lanai open right after a rain. We did get lots of bird visitors and saw a tiny lizard. There was one day you could hear the groundskeeping crew. Motors of lawnmowers, leaf blowers etc. It was not intrusive at all. And the grounds were kept very clean. Noise was not an issue at all. I would 100% stay here again. Perfect location, perfect spot. Had lots of extras I wasn’t expecting that I did end up using: snorkel equipment, beach chairs, cooler, beach towels. Helped make our stay that much better. Thank you!!!!

We had a very relaxing month in Wendy's condo. Rained a lot this time but Hawaii rain is still nicer than home. Unfortunately we picked the west side this trip because the last 3 we stayed in Kihei yet drove to Lahaina 8 times, so this time figured let's stay near there. Then came the fires 11 months after we booked. Everything about the condo was fine, I just wish the neighbour wouldn't have walked past our bedroom window every morning at 5:15 am hawking and spitting right outside. Woke me every day. Wendy is a wonderful host, even though we had no problems I knew if we did she was there. (one small problem with the tv setup, she answered me right away and figured it out) We didn't like the Keurig so we bought a coffee maker and left it behind for others to enjoy.

It is one of the best locations in west maui specially with family. We needed a kitchen due to out food preferences and we were able to enjoy every moment of our stay. We will go with this again if we visit.

We loved staying here. We snuck away from the kids for our 20th anniversary. Loved hearing the waves crashing at night. Loved the location close to all our favorite beaches. Loved the patio closet full of beach chairs, umbrellas and snorkel gear. Wendy is so prompt in communication and helpful. Amazing weekend!

Aloha. Awesome condo! Great location! Quiet with a beautiful view! Sunsets are amazing! Complete with their resident conch shell blower. Life doesn’t get any better! Kitchen is well appointed. Lots of dishes and pots/pans to choose from. King bed is very comfortable. Shower is great lots of hot water. Two brand new Weber bbqs that we used every night. Laundry is next door, hardly used, very convenient with lots of good books to borrow. There is no air conditioning but not a problem. Ceiling fans in every room and trade winds keep the condo at a nice temperature. The wrought iron bistro set (lania furniture) could be upgraded to something more comfortable and sturdier. Saw lots of whales from the lania. Bring your binoculars. And tons of turtles on the shore line looking off the deck. We stayed for 5 weeks. When I asked about cleaning supplies Kristin purchased a stick vacuum and a mop and pail to help me keep place clean from the red dust. So appreciated that. I like to keep a clean house even on holidays lol. Kristin was awesome to deal with. Very attentive to our needs. Mahalo. Would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Very clean. First time renting a VRBO place. This was an outstanding experience and the owners were very communicative. We really couldn’t ask for more and the price was was more than fair.

Unit was advertised as on the ocean with ocean views. It was a bottom floor unit with NO view at all except the pool. Did't know that we had to supply our own toilet tissue, outrageous, also no AC. Host was very hard to contact, never could contact owner, and manager was extremely hard to contact as host gave us 3 wrong numbers and his information was not given correctly in the information guide. VRBO does not even have the correct contact numbers. If your service is too big to handle the small things like checking views, then we're wasting our time with you.

This was our third stay at this condo and it has become my happy place. The view is exceptional, the location is perfect, the grounds are beautiful, the kitchen is stocked with every cooking utensil you would need, the bed and furniture is comfortable, the laundry facilities are great, and the whale and turtle viewing can’t be beat. My only complaint this time was people playing music at the pool, sometimes more than one group. I just wish people would use headphones since maybe we all don’t want to hear your music.

We stayed at this location for 8 nights. The location was perfect for us. Everything you read about it is true and not exaggerated. Close to everything we wanted to do. Less than 5 min to a grocery. The place itself is very clean and well decorated. Plenty of space to keep the place organized. We felt right at home. We had everything we needed for our beach visits, from cooler to beach chairs and towels. Bed was particularly comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need also. The view from the balcony is the BIG plus. We left the window open at nights so we could hear the ocean. Having breakfast on the balcony and watching the whales was awesome. We are so glad to find this piece of heaven.

We enjoyed our stay in this unit very much. The view is lovely, the pool is great, and it had been stocked with everything that we'd need. The bathroom definitely shows its age and could use some love (i.e., some renovation). Communication was fine, but it was clear we were dealing with a corporation, and not an individual/owner of the unit. So it did lack that personal connection that some VRBO rentals have. The area around is great and very walkable and interesting.

Perfect property for stay in Maui. Super clean and exactly as shown. We stayed for a week and saw whales from the balcony every day. Nice quiet location that made for a dream vacation. Good as a base for further exploration or simply chilling and enjoying the view. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely property. We have been visiting the island of Maui for the past 16 years. The property is centrally located for the west side. It’s a little different without Lahaina town but things are slowly returning. It is updated and comfortably furnished. The lanai has a lovely lookout over the ocean and the swimming pool. It has comfortable outside seating. It is equipped with pretty much everything you will need for your stay. Beach and snorkeling equipment are there for your use together with a cooler for your beach activities. We stay for an extended time, so do some cooking at home. The kitchen is well equipped with most everything you will need. We very much enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be returning.

The condo was very clean and had every amenity we could have asked for. The check-in/out process was a breeze! You do not miss the a/c. The breeze was perfect and controllable with windows and screen doors.

We decided to stay in West Maui to spread some tourist dollars in the area. We had lived on Oahu years ago and hadn't been back to Maui since moving back to Seattle. Our host provided all kinds of info on local places to eat and shop, and we used many of them with much satisfaction. This is a quiet top/4th floor unit that looks right out onto the island of Lanai. The area is fairly quiet, unlike the crazy hubbub of Kihei. Of course, there are numerous tourists in various condos, but also permanent residents and locals eating and shopping in the area. The unit is in an older condo development, but it is comfortable, well furnished, has all the conveniences, and every small appliance imaginable. Just one detraction for us was the TV system, Vizio. It takes a few minutes to load up and, and in spite of "emergency" instruction from our host, we were never able to get live TV, only streaming. We limped along with Prime but were still happy in our comfy condo (great bed!) in several days of severe wind advisories that kept our toes out of both the Pacific and the pool. Thanks to Steve, our host, for the relaxing 6 days! Note: Many Lahaina businesses remain open, such as Safeway and ABC.

Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us. Nice condo, pool/ garden and wonderful ocean view. We appreciated the wind song and and the awesome waves that seemed to roll in without end.

The renovated condo with a well-equipped kitchen was very accommodating. Even without air conditioning, with the ceiling fans and ocean breeze the temperatures were comfortable. No washer & dryer in the unit was a bit of a nuisance, but manageable with a laundry room in the complex. Loved the ocean view.

My husband and I had an incredible stay and Steve’s place was the perfect relaxing spot for our week in West Maui! The view from the Lanai is amazing - saw many whales and sea turtles during our stay. We loved falling asleep with the screen door open listening to the sounds of waves hitting the coast. We enjoyed the coffee maker and watching beautiful sunsets at night. Overall great location! The recommendations provided by Steve were really helpful too for planning our trip! Wish we could have stayed longer!

Stay was pleasant as anticipated. We found the condo to be clean and suitable for our needs. It is showing its age with some peeling paint in the shower ceiling and behind the toilet, a large door window that is difficult to open, a kitchen faucet that is not functioning properly and a noisy fan above the bed. With minor repairs the unit should be well received by future renters.

You will fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing just steps away every evening. This condo is nicely updated with a fully appointed kitchen (with dishwasher) and cozy furnishings. The ocean view is phenomenal from the lanai, which hosts a basic patio dining set. Great spot for whale watching (there are binoculars in the condo). The complex itself is a bit dated - this isn't a luxury resort. We saw 2 units: this one was very nicely remodeled inside, and fully protected from street noise due to the prime location in the building. Between the cross-breeze from the screen doors and an overhead fan, the lack of A/C was never a problem. The PIN code lock was super convenient and made check in easy. The shared sun deck is large and not crowded. The pool is up to 9ft deep and great for cooling off, surrounded by plenty of chairs and tables (but no shade or umbrellas), as well as 2 large gas grills. The shared coin laundry facilities are fine and parking in the lot with a permit was always available. The unit includes some basic gear like a few beach towels and a couple of folding chairs for your day trips. You are a 10 minute walk from a small local beach park that was quiet and offered shade, or a 10 minute drive from numerous larger beaches that draw a tourist crowd. There are plenty of restaurants, gear shops, and grocery stores around.

The unit met all of our needs, it’s small, but it works great for two! The breeze and fans kept the unit very comfortable. The screen door is a little hard to close but well worth it for the fantastic view from the lanai, it is absolutely fantastic, all the time!

We recently had the pleasure of staying here and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The property was clean and set up with everything we needed. The views were incredible as well. Communication with Steve was seamless from start to finish and he was quick to help with any inquiries we had. His hospitality added a personal touch to our experience, making us feel truly welcomed. We highly recommend staying here!

We have stayed on this property the past 4 years and decided to rent from a different owner due to the unit we were in is in need of a new mattress. This unit has a new mattress - very comfortable. The unit itself needs some "tender loving care". When talking with the owner, she was aware of some of the problems when she visited in November but chose not to make the necessary repairs. The unit is in need of a very through cleaning - screens and drapery are unbelievable dirty, ceiling fans also.

Trip of a lifetime for us and this condo couldn’t have been more perfect! It went above and beyond – super clean, killer views, and cozy-chic! Check-in was a breeze, tons of parking, and the place was well-kept. Bonus points for having snorkeling gear, cooler, and beach chairs – made our beach days even more awesome. Perfect location to check out different beaches or grab a bite to eat, but honestly the kitchen had everything for homemade meals too. Kim and Scott are fantastic hosts- easy communication, personable, and kind. We will definitely be back. Totally recommend it!

I stayed along to get some rest and take in the views. I was not disappointed. I felt safe on the 4th floor to leave the patio door open. I could lay in the bed and look at the ocean. I would have my morning coffee on the patio because of the beautiful view. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare a meal.

We had already been traveling in other parts of Hawaii for a week before we got the details about our stay here - location, keys, parking pass. The parking pass neede to be printed. Of course, we didn’t have access to a printer, but we were able to find a copy shop/storage business that had printing services and print the paring pass, so not a big deal. Just “a thing”. There’s a red dust that coats everything there. Could be from construction going on, or could just be indigenous to area. We did not wear footwear inside, as requested (and I’m certain that policy contributes to the cleanliness, and helps maintain the shine on the tile floor) but our socks, feet, and inside of all our footwear was stained with the rust colored dust. Wear black socks inside, and don’t wear those socks with your footwear. No AC - not a big problem. The cross breeze created when front & back doors are open simultaneously is sufficient. One of the fans in the bedroom didn’t work (that was problematic for one of us😉). The only cutting board I found was about 4”X6” - not large enough for the amazingly delicious, gigantic “Maui Gold Pineapples” that are plentiful on the island. Luckily, we had picked up enough literature on our comings-&-goings that I had enough newspaper to cut our pineapples on. Sidewalk right outside the complex will take you to plenty of restaurants and beachside parks that you won’t need to drive there. You can walk off some of the calories before and after consumption.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was our 9th trip to Maui and 8th time in the Honokowai area on lower Honoapiilani road. We like the quieter pace of that area. We stayed at Hale Ono Loa and it was what we expected, clean and simple with a fully functional kitchen. We also knew going in there wasn't much of a beach directly in front of this, but two beaches within easy walking distance and a short drive to others. Also plenty of restaurants within walking distance. One minor issue, the hotel pool was a little on the cold side, I understand it's solar heated, not a big deal, the pool was still usable. Otherwise the room was perfect for us, maybe even a little nicer than we expected, we'd stay there again.

Have stayed in this complex 4 time. The unit was nicer than any of the others. It is the lower level so your beach viewing is mildly restricted. I believe that’s reflected in the awesome price. Thangs Angela for offering a nice property. We love this neighborhood & the locals. A couple staying, very kind, wanted to share. Mahalo, Deb & Carl
