Recent Nani Kai Hale Reviews


This property is in a great location, right on Sugar Beach. We loved being able to walk down the corridor and out the door right on to the beach. So convenient! The common facilities were lovely - the pool, BBQ area and lounging area. We used these every day. And the laundry was convenient with the choice of coin or app operation which was very handy. The unit itself had everything we needed for a comfortable two week stay. Only thing we had to buy was a beach umbrella. The property manager was super helpful and friendly, as well. The only down side, in my opinion, was the proximity to Hwy. 311 and the Piilani Hwy. simply because of the traffic noise. If you're sensitive to this type of noise at night, keep that in mind. Michael was a wonderful host! Communication was great and he was accommodating and helpful. He made the rental process easy. Thanks again Michael! I'm sure we will be back and will recommend your rental to friends and family.

The location was delightful. The on-site building manager was wonderful. Listening to the waves, the beach, the pool, the utensils and dishes etc, wonderful. We stayed for 10 nights. Both my husband and I were so sore from the bed. It has massive lumps. I notified property management several days before we left, no response. The unit is a bit outdated and well used. They want you to keep excessive sand out and we rinsed off whenever returning from the beach but for a 10 night stay, in which we cooked and ate in the unit, we weren’t provided with a broom or dustpan. We also were told to take the trash out daily and weren’t given enough trash bags. The biggest issue was the bed. All in all, we love the location but for a longer stay, we recommend getting a comfortable bed.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was somewhat unhappy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We always enjoy our Maui vacations. The island is lovely and the people are super friendly and helpful. This particular rental unit was not up to our standards for cleanliness. The unit needs updating (flooring, furniture, bathrooms) all is quite dated and worn. Also, I think it should be noted somewhere about the traffic noise. We could not hear the ocean waves from our unit and often had to close the patio door due to traffic noise.

The view from the lanai was the best! We could see whales in the distance. It was quiet. The beach was quiet. It is centrally located with short drives to get anywhere. Highly recommend staying here.

It was a great bonus to find beach towels, beach chairs & umbrella and a cooler were provided. Our only complaints are the metal lanai furniture was horribly uncomfortable and there were not enough wash/bath cloths provided. We loved Kihei and Sugar Beach!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We booked a condo for 3 nights. Bello staff rec'd a room on the 6th floor. It was fine. Even though it was not a beach-facing room, the dining table window (shown in the photo) looks out over the ocean. We also found that it has two bathrooms even though it is a one-bedroom apartment. On arrival we found a couple of minor issues, and the staff fixed them within hours of our reporting them. One minor gripe was that there were no washcloths. Overall, it was quite nice.

Having two showers was really nice for when you come back from the beach or pool. The closet had all the beach chairs, coolers etc you need. Plus, more things like sand toys are stored out in the garden. You can walk to the best bakery and shave ice on the island! The caretaker of the condo building was really on top of things and very nice. In the condo, the furnishings are older, but everything worked fine. Mike was very easy to communicate with. Would stay there again.

Overall extremely happy with our stay here! Our only issue was with cleanliness of the unit, it appears to only receive a 'surface' cleaning of the kitchen and floors but was manageable. The bed was comfortable overall but everyone's definitions are different, I found it a bit soft and lumpy but my partner slept like a baby. The 2 bathrooms and A/C in both rooms worked perfectly for our needs. We had a minor issue with TV remotes a few days in but Josh was very responsive and helpful! Note that this unit is an end unit closest to the roads and intersection so a bit noisy on the lanai but the views of both the ocean and Haleakala made up for it (in our opinion)!

Everything started okay but quickly discovered that the unit was infested by cochroaches. Manager offered to bring traps after the second email and 3 days. We couldnt stay. He did refund the days we werent there but still had to pay service fee and cleaning fee. Unacceptable as i i has to oay thar at the new place too. So disappointed.

We had a great stay, the check in process was easy and went smoothly. The condo is centrally located on the island, which makes it easy to see all parts of the island. The condo was clean, the kitchen was well equipped. We had everything we needed to prepare meals. The rooms were comfortable and nice to relax in after our active day. There is a lawn with lounge chairs and umbrellas right on the beach. A fantastic view. The sunsets from the front lawn are spectacular. Also, there are three gas grills on the lawn Which we used a number of times. The whole facility was quite, which made for a relaxing stay.

The room was older. Location was excellent. Beautiful view of the ocean and easy access . I misplaced my key to the condo and the owner drove out and gave me a replacement. My biggest issue was the windows were filthy. My first morning was spent cleaning them as I hate looking out dirty windows. I probably could have called the owner to resolve this issue, but there were cleaning supplies and I was eager to get it done. Overall, I had a great stay and would stay there again.

Was in extreme need of updates. Mostly clean. Nice location. Walked to one restaurant, hawaiian ice place and farmers market. View from balcony was great. When calling property manager his voice mail was always full so you had to keep calling till he answered. Had a problem and he did come over in a timly manner and resolved the problem.

This condo has a beautiful location, and a wonderful outdoor shared patio/BBQ space right on the ocean. A truly great place to have a meal and watch the sunset. A great view of the ocean from the lanai, and we appreciated the use of the beach chairs and beach umbrella. The unit itself is in need of a good deep cleaning and an upgrade. The tile floors are badly chipped, and the whole unit feels a little tired. I cleaned the dishwasher before using it, and ran a load of dishes through before using them. Stay here for a great location on Maui, but keep your expectations low for the suite.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your place. It was perfect for our visit. Close to coffee, bakery treats, shave ice, and ABC store. Wonderful location by the beach. It was also easy to get around to places of interest and restaurants. Would definitely like to return.

Great experience! Our favorite part of this VRBO was the location— very central to most things we wanted to do in Maui. Never too far from any activities! Great views and the neighbors were fine. The remotes don’t really work, they need batteries. Everything else was great, no real complaints.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The unit is beautiful, but some important issues. The unit is poorly stocked. Utensils missing, mixed coffe cups& glassware. I called Bello and they sent new spoons, forks, and glasses. Couch, chairs, and pillows all totaled worn out. TV not set up. Unit overall is nice, but total lack of upkeep.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We found the unit well equipped and overall a comfortable stay. The supplies provided us were sufficient for our stay. The TV system needs better instructions-hard to navigate all the various parameters available. There's a knob on the front door, which if turned, will allow the door to be opened from the outside. Renters need to be warned about this.

Reviewer Comments: A/C in living room doesn’t work, small leak in the kitchen, neighbors across the hall were breaking down their door at 9p at night on our third night and frightened us to the point that we felt we needed to call the police. Small space, for the 3 of us it was ok. My parents and I, although I wouldn’t do it for 4 people as it would be very tight. We spend a lot of time in our room so we wanted some place that felt comfortable and had everything you would need for cooking and making yourself at home for the week! I wouldn’t book with them again, however it wasn’t a terrible experience! The location is great!!! No one was ever in the office while we were there for the 5 days otherwise we would have said something to them about the A/C and leak.

Lara was wonderful at communicating with me about any questions, before staying. The unit has everything you need and more. They have set up the unit so perfectly with a tv in the bedroom and and in the living area. We had everything we needed to cook and just a short walk to the farmers market and ABC store. Plus the walk along Sugar Beach every morning was wonderful. We will be back. Thank you!

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was our first time in this unit, however we have rented at Nani Kai Hale many times over the years. This unit was ok, however we were disappointed in the overall cleanliness. The showers, from all outward appearances in the pictures, seemed fine until after a few days and that is when the mold and mildew started coming out. If I could attach pics I would but you'll have to take my word for it. We were there two weeks, and halfway through the stay I asked Belo to see if we could get it cleaned. They responded 3 days before we left and said "all the vendors I pursued are booked up until next week." Honestly, this is years worth of gross that has been glossed over with something other than bleach and a good scrub. If it were just the showers then we might let it go. The piping on the couch (and the arms) was darker than the rest of the fabric. Discoloration from body oils no doubt. The couch and chair in the living area really needs to be replaced, but the unit is for sale so you get what you get. Its not real comfortable for 4 adults. They say the new windows reduce traffic noise, but they clearly haven't slept in it. Between the large trucks air braking, people honking because others won't let them merge, and just general traffic, it's loud. We never sat on the patio because we really couldn't hear each other over the noise. Definitely couldn't hear the calming swells of the ocean. Parking was a breeze and we always have loved the outdoor area to grill and watch the sun set. Kitchen was not stocked as much as we would have liked but we got by. Property mgr and groundskeeper were very present and friendly. Love that the laundry facilities accepted Shine Pay so we didn't have to find quarters. Nani Kai Hale is an excellent location, however we won't be staying in this unit again.

The SHAG rug in the bedroom was FILTHY, numerous stains. That carpet was as old as the unit. The walls were dirty from the floor to the ceiling. This unit has most likely never been given a good cleaning. The cost for staying in this unit far out weighed its value, even for Hawaii.

The location on Sugar Beach was AMAZING! The grounds and community area was beautiful! Lots of outdoor furniture and BBQs. Loved the cat 🐈‍⬛ Kai. The Condo was clean and had everything we needed……But all furnishings were Vintage and in need of an UPDATE!!!! A coat of paint would make a huge difference!!! And a NEW SOFA!

Condo was very nice. The yard area was great and right next to the beach. Everything was just as advertised. We had a great stay.

Spacious unit at the north (quiet) side of Kihei which was perfect for us. Easy access to beach. Good communication from property manager and check in was smooth. Could use new mattress in master bed room as mattress sinks and they tried reinforcing it with a foamy/sponge. Kitchen was well equipped but would have been nice if they provided dishwasher detergent/pucks. Overall, pleasant stay and would stay here again.

This beachfront, ocean-view unit is super clean, has quality furnishings, and is equipped with kitchen items and beach gear. Tip: The fridge has a working ice maker. I didn't realize that at first because the arm was up. The grounds are well-maintained, the walkable beach goes for miles, and it's easy to enter into mostly-calm waters that are perfect for swimming, SUP, etc. The location on the North end of the Kihei strip was great for us to get to other parts of the island during our stay.

Overall, we had a nice stay. The owner, Michael allowed us to have an early check-in, which was very nice. We had a bit of a cleaning issue when we arrived. Vacuum and cleaning supplies inside the condo allowed us to tidy up for ourselves. The neighbor next door clearly does not like short-term renters. Be as quiet as a mouse in the hallway and hopefully you will have no issues. Pros: easy to get to lots of great beaches- right on main street/ intersection. Easy parking. On the beach! Cons: Building is quite a bit run down- very thin walls- we heard the people above us often. 2/3 of the sleeping areas face the parking lot, and very bright parking lot lights shine through the curtains. Blackout blinds would be great here. Lots of road noise too if you like to sleep with windows open.

Reviewer Comments: Arranging the rental with Bello was easy and straightforward. Access was easily arranged and the only hitch was not being informed about the change to the lanai gate lock code. Overall, the building and the grounds were in fantastic condition and the unit itself was clean and welcoming. The balcony for suite 502 overlooks the main highway so it took a couple of days to get used to the sound of traffic. This is our fourth stay at Nane kai Hale and keep returning due to its central location and proximity to Kihei.

I did not have the code so it was a hassle getting into our condo. Luckily a woman who owned a condo helped us. It was evening and we had trouble finding the unit. We also had trouble working the coffee pot and microwave. One of the washing machines in the hallway did not work either. But it was a lovely, well decorated, well stocked and clean condo. We came to Maui to volunteer because of the fires.
