We had the most wonderful stay in this condo. Perfect for our family of four. The views off the lanais are breathtaking. The location is absolutely perfect and we would defiantly come back!

Great view of the ocean. Great location. Walking distance to restaurants, groceries, food truck pod, and northern tip of a Kaanapali boardwalk. Saw whales and turtles from our lanai. Got a monk seal visit at the small beach next door. Quiet for light sleepers, away from the road. Plenty of space for two. We cooked in most nights and the kitchen worked well. We even used the rice cooker and popcorn popper. We didn't need the AC; ceiling fans and open windows/doors was enough that week. The bedroom was usually cooler than the living room at night. Lots of little touches that helped make the stay more enjoyable: plenty of storage containers, doors can be held open with a magnet, the sliding door to the lanai can be held slightly open for air flow but still prevent entry, nice beach chairs, modern appliances, etc. Couple ideas to make it even better: add the ability to hold the shower head lower, add a non-stick pan.

Loved the ocean being right out our front door with amazing views from both decks. -can’t say enough about how close you get to be to the water and and watch/listen to ocean waves from your own decks. Gorgeous beaches abound in the area but really neat to be able to enjoy small sandy beach area and water in your own private beach too.

We especially enjoyed watching whales from the balcony. Bree and Herb are always available and helpful if guests need anything. There was no BBQ spatula in our condo. I notified Herb, and he supplied one in a few hours. Great stay as always.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Love the view and sounds from this room, except what must have been elephants that occupied the room above.Several items need repair, a kitchen cabinet drawer that falls on the floor when opened, Both sliding doors and screens, toilet seat, bedroom carpets (shampoo or replace) and coffee grinder. This unit needs a thorough deep cleaning. Stayed in this condo in the past with much better accommodations. Would recommend this property to a friend but not not B101. I would not select this unit again.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great condo with comfortable furnishings and kitchen, but the best thing about it was being very close to the water. The sights and sounds of the waves made for such a peaceful experience. Some were swimming from the beach, which we would have done if it had been warmer. Many whale sightings from our lanai. Bree was quick to respond and helpful. The Lokelani is a perfect place to stay on Maui!

Lokelani is a hidden diamond...the condo is beautiful, and you're so close ( ON) to the water that you can smell the ocean breeze. The beach had maybe 6 people there at most. The Sea Turtles are always sunning themselves and the water is 78 degrees....we have stayed here twice and are so impressed that we are looking at buying a unit ourselves. Dollies & Miso Phat Sushi are within walking distance, as are many other shops, restaurants & grocery stores. Peter & Michelle are gracious hosts and answer any & all questions in a very timely manner. Honestly, this trip and the location are absolutely perfect!

February 2024

I was a bit reluctant before checking in based on the mixed reviews. Once I opened the front door and saw the incredible view, all reluctance left. The condo is dated, but that in no way detracts from the pure enjoyment of the lanais, seeing turtles and whales daily, sleeping to the sound of the surf all night and the private beach for fun in the surf. I would stay here again.

Any closer, you’d be wet really describes it all. Enjoyed a wonderful week of fun in Maui and relaxing on the lanai. Saw whales and turtles off the lanai every day. Comfortable condo. Good bed and shower. Nice friendly neighbors. We had friends staying in a Kaanapali condo over to enjoy sunset and they were amazed at the location. There isnt a fancy resort but a wonderful relaxing place with easy parking.

We absolutely loved it here! The sunset was beautiful and being during the height of whale season, we saw so many right from or condo! We even saw turtles in the beach. This was the perfect, private, quaint place, close to restaurants, food trucks, and beaches. Very responsive... We had issues night one with the wrong wifi info and they texted us immediately. So easy to work with! Definitely recommend!

This place was so amazing. Clean, had everything we needed for our 10 day stay. Beach chairs, noodles, towels all for the perfect beach. We had an awesome view, the whales did not disappoint. We had some resident green sea turtles. Snorkeling from the beach was perfect. We will for sure book again. Would like to bring our family here

The views were excellent and we saw a number of whales farther out in the water. The bathrooms were clean but could use some updating. Despite this minor issue, we'd recommend this condo to others. We got exactly what we expected and the value was very fair.

The condo is about 10 steps from the seawall that overlooks the ocean. We watched whales and turtles from the patio daily. No need for binoculars. Location of the condo is close enough and far enough from the stores. Very quiet area. Very small complex so everything is easy to find: Assigned parking spot, dumpster & recycling, and stairs to the beach. The condo is perfect with all kitchen amenities including blender, shredder, salad spinner, and lots of pots and pans. Great selection of plastic containers for leftovers, too. The bed is comfy. Blackout blinds, a/c, and wonderful bedding and storage made the bedroom perfect. Closet with plenty of hangers! Overall, we loved it and will be back next year!

The location and views are wonderful. Saw whales everyday. Where we find fault is the cleanliness of the condo. Large cobwebs in master suite. Broken closet door and slats on master closet. Extremely dusty laundry room door. Broken threshold between dining area and living room and asked not to wear shoes was questionable The condo feels old and dated. The living room furniture was not comfortable and cushions were dirty and stained. But the most alarming fact was we got no response to a question we posted to the owner a few weeks before our final payment. We won’t stay here again and recommend no one else does until these issue are addressed

Bree being the first, I should mention makes sure that you are comfortable while you are staying there at Lokelani condos. Any situation that you run across she is there for you. The maintenance crew, the person or persons who take care of the outside and inside condo area are very professional. The condo that we stayed in this year was perfect. We made a reservation to come back next year in the same condominium at the same time looking forward to it very much. it is very quiet and peaceful at Lokelani. The sunsets are great. The grounds are great. a great place to be. Indeed it is a hidden gem .I would recommend it 100%. I know Lahaina has had a recent tragedy and I pray For those people. I know they will be taken care of.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were Lokelani returners. Stayed main floor this time & loved walking out right to the water’s edge...stunning setting. Loved having turtle visitors most every afternoon on the beach next door. Showing its age a bit but in overall good condition. Comfortable king-size bed. We did have a couple maintenance issues - but very quick to attend to.A/C was having issues & not real “user friendly” to operate (found the manual & that helped!) The pool is right outside the bedroom window. If you are early to bed people & it’s being used...it’s noisy! But, was never an issue with quiet hours.Whole process was super easy - from booking to arrival/departure info.Thanks, Lokelani for a great stay!

Pros * The view! Gorgeous. Can't be beat. We loved listening to the waves at night * The condo is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped * We saw turtles and whales from the balcony on a regular basis * Management company was easy to communicate with and quick to reply to our questions Cons * Condo could be cleaner - especially the 2 balconies and the flooring on the main floor. I had to clean the outdoor furniture before we could sit on it. And the balcony floor was full of dirt and dead bugs. I also had to mop the floor on the main level. The flooring was making our feet very dirty and we didn't want to track dirt onto the carpet upstairs. * Ghost ants were a problem in the kitchen. There were also a few ghost ants in the main bathroom. We did spray for ants during our stay and it improved some. If you store ALL food in the fridge and keep the counters wiped clean at all times it isn't a huge problem. * There is no air conditioning on the main level. We left the patio doors open during our entire stay to get the breeze, but if the humidity had been higher it would have been quite warm on the main level. There is AC on the top floor for the bedrooms In summary, parts of the condo are showing their age and cleanliness could be better, but the view is incredible and we would stay there again. We enjoyed our stay and hated to leave.

We love this property and have stayed there many times. This is the first time in this unit. There were minor issues, such as several lights out in the master bathroom, broken furniture and molding. Overall, we were very pleased and the property manager was responsive to our needs.

Our stay was truly paradise. The property is quiet, clean, and in a perfect location. We are long time Maui visitors and former owners of a rental condo and this exceeded our expectations in every way. The ocean front setting cannot be beat and the fact that it is off the road makes it so quiet. We had to close the slider one night because the waves were so loud-that's a good thing! The kitchen is well stocked with every pot and pan you need and plenty of utensils. Towels were plentiful as well as paper goods. We hope to return 2-3 times a year and will always choose this location.

The condo was clean and quiet and the view was spectacular. We were able to see whales every day from the lanai. Turtles (mostly one but one day two) were on the beach every day, and you could see multiple in the water just off the beach. Short drive to many restaurants and other beaches and we walked to both Times supermarket and the Food Trucks across the street multiple times during our stay. We would definitely recommend staying here and would stay again if we come back to Maui.

This condo is fantastic! Loved waking up to the amazing views and just listening to the waves. As advertised, the ocean is literally steps from your doorstep. We saw sea turtles on the little beach and enjoyed a little swim there too. This place provided a true sense of privacy. It was quiet, uncrowded and peaceful. Although not fancy, the condo was impressively clean and provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The owner was very informative and helpful. We had the opportunity to volunteer packing and serving Thanksgiving meals for the community at Joeys kitchen. The owners there anre amazingly caring people who experienced the fire themselves. We met many strong Maui residents who are remaining hopeful and feel honored to have met them. We had zero problems here and feel that we picked an amazing place we will want to come back to. Words can’t express how awesome we found this stay!

We’ve become Lokelani regulars. Love the private beach with turtles and fish to snorkel around. This unit has very comfortable beds and the kitchen had everything we needed. Only wish the pullout couch was better quality for my 14 year old daughter. We loved watching the sunset and hearing the waves.

Staying at this property was great. Everything we needed was in the condo, including beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, small cooler bags, etc. The lanai was very nice and we ate all our home cooked or take out meals there overlooking the beautiful view of Molokai, and of course the water. From the back yard you can see both Molokai and Lanai. When the sun is out, the water is a beautiful emerald green to blue to dark blue color. We couldn't get enough of it. The waves break over some reef not too far out and we got to see some surfers, paddle boarders, jet skiers, kite surfers, kayaks, etc. One amazing highlight of this area are all the turtles. All in all on our trip we saw dozens of turtles, including many that crawled up the small beach adjacent to the condo. We also saw a monk seal flop up on the beach and take a 10 hour nap. A turtle crawled up and slept right next to it, and another turtle came up on the beach also. It was quite an amazing site. The location of the condo is great. Kaanipali, an amazing beach, is just a short drive away. As well as 10 or so other spectacular beaches. We were very sad to drive past Lahaina several times and see the aftermath of the fires. Don't let this be a reason not to come because there is still plenty to do and the people are very appreciative of the visitors. Thanks to Ray for letting us stay and I would definitely come back again!
