This house was well decorated and nicely manicured. The master bedroom was huge with the sounds of the crashing waves the loudest, so cool! I've been to many houses in the Hawaiian paradise park district and I have to say the hot water heater was by far the best! So everyone had hot water for their showers. The shower in the master bedroom was just perfect. The pool and spa were very enjoyable, especially at night! The only deficeit would be the 3rd bedroom which is really small, really, but the person who stayed in the room did not complain. The office on the other hand was the same size as the 2nd bedroom. The view and waves were awesome. Look for turtles in the morning, they like to surf the waves. Saw a whale too. Nice quiet stay!!

We loved the house. The sights and sounds of the ocean were spectacular. The rooms were spacious and the kitchen was well stocked. My daughter loved the lap pool and jacuzzi. We were also surprised to come home and find our deposit waiting for us. That was a nice surprise. We would highly recommend this property.
It is a great housing with great location. My kids love the hot tub and swimming pool very much. I enjoyed the ocean view and the sound of the waves. The kitchen is well stocked and th laundry facility is an added bonus.

After a week on Maui, we knew we would need a private place to unwind and relax. Hale Mar exceeded our expectations and yet we could still get to the volcanoes or the city in a short amount of time. The views and solitude made our stay unforgettable.

This is a gem of a house. It you want a vacation where you get away from it all but still be fairly close to the major sights, then this is the place for you. While there, we went zip lining, took an open doors helicopter tour of the volcano, drove up to the observatory, and visited numerous places suggested in the book the owners have made. The small town close by has four or five great restaurants to choose from. There is nothing quite like falling asleep to the sounds of the waves or coming "home” and having a swim and jacuzzi. I've even video taped the waves so that I can imagine myself back there on those stressful real life days! The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay hassle free and were a pleasure to communicate and deal with. I'm saving to get back there as soon as I can!

It goes without saying that lodging is typically the most expensive component of a vacation and the entire vacation experience is related to that. Hale Mar provided a splendid lodging experience at a reasonable cost....even without the fact that complete privacy was ours and the neighbors were friendly. The owners have taken great care in making certain that all, and I do mean all, necessities are provided to those staying there. From matches to beach towels, and even an umbrella, nothing has been spared. If I do visit Hawaii again Hale Mar will be the only place I will consider to stay. Nothing more need be said!
