What Past Guests Are Saying
This is our second stay at this condo. We came back to the same place because it was perfect the first time. The second time didn't disappoint. It's affordable, a perfect location and the people in the condos around you are super nice. What a wonderful experience. What could be better than be right on the ocean watching sea turtles and whales? We cannot possibly tell you the benefits of this condo. It's a splendid experience and we highly recommend staying here.
North Palm Beach
We had a wonderful time in a very well supplied condo (unit 105)
Every thing worked according to the instructions we received. The condo was very comfortable and well equipped. We loved the first floor where we could walk right out from the patio onto the grass. We had breakfast every morning on the patio while watching thecwhales perform, and we watched the sunset nightly from there. (Never saw the green flash however.)
Would consider another stay at this condo on another trip to Mau
The location was excellent, one could not do better with the
view...the amenities were great, barbecues only steps away,
laundry facilities right in the unit, comfortable bed in
bedroom, full kitchen with all the dishes, pots and pans
anyone would need to stay there for any extended time, and
a fullsize refrig. and dishwasher...the only thing not up to
par were the linens on the two beds, but owner said he would
replace them all...

We have stayed here before and every time we have enjoyed our time again this year. Very good value for money.
Las Vegas, NV
We really enjoyed our stay at the Kaleialoha Condo 105. When we arrived everything was clean and all the ammenities readily available. We walked out on to the lanai and experienced the wonderful view of the ocean and each day saw sunrises and sunsets. The condo was not air conditioned but this was not really a problem if we opened the sliding door. Lots of opportunities to see ocean life.
A great "home away from home" for a Maui vacation.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Kaleialoha #105. The condo was exactly as represented in the listing (loved the videos - we knew what to expect and it delivered). The location was convenient (close to the amenities of Ka'anapali, without being in Ka'anapali) and the Lahaina harbor was only about 10 minutes away. The green sea turtles in the ocean just outside the condo were a real treat. Loved the sound of the waves - we ate breakfast on the lanai every day. One of the neighbors blew the conch shell so everyone would come outside to watch the sunset every day - what a treat! Having the washer/dryer in the unit was a big plus.
Stop at Costco (next to the airport) when you arrive to stock up on food, aloha shirts, discounted dinner cruises, and macadamia nut gifts (just don't tell your friends you brought their presents at Costco). The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make breakfast every day and dinner when we didn't feel like going out.
College Park, MD
My husband and I did not want to pay big money to stay in luxury hotel, however, we got all the luxury we needed in this condo. The condo amenities were superb! The farmers market was on a walking distance, so we could stock up the fridge with all fresh veggies and fruits, the beach was just steps away, resort swimming pool was around the corner, and the condo location was perfect for our outdoor adventures. We could not expect more. Thank you! Mahalo!
Los Gatos, CA
Recently stayed here with my family and it was lovely! The condo has a beautiful view and most nights we ate dinner outside on the patio watching the sunset (amazing)! Last year we came to Maui and stayed in an expensive resort (paid 3x as much) and never got a view even close to this. Plus for people who love to snorkel, there is a small (almost private) beach right in front of the condo with a bunch of rocks and the turtles come up everyday to swim there and eat off the rocks. Beautiful place - we all had a lovely time! Thank you again!!!
This condo is in a great location with an amazing setting.
The condo was neat and clean. The first floor was perfect for being able to walk out and sun next to the ocean or swim on the beach.The setting was quiet. The sun was very intense in the afternoon until sunset. An outdoor sun screen would have really helped. Most of the other units had them.
This home was sparkling, with lots of kitchen tools for cooking and dining at home. Super comfy king size bed also. Love the hawaiian decor, wonderful trade winds and the sounds of the ocean all day and night. Spectacular sunsets and beautiful grounds. Beaches are 5 to 10 minutes away and easily accesible. Great resturants and shopping nearby.Checking in and out was hassle free.
Moses Lake, WA
This condo was perfect!!! We had an amazing time. The view is just beautiful, you just have to walk 15 feet and there is the ocean. We even did some snorkeling right there. You see more turtles here than anywhere. The condo was very well equipped with everything we needed. We will definately be returning here in the future.
Santa Monica, California
Beautiful and relaxing!
My dad and my two year-old daughter, and I stayed here for Spring Break. The condo has everything you need, and the view is outstanding!!! Beach access is so close by, although a bit intimidating because of the rocky path to the sand.The pool was very cold, but very beautiful, and close by as well. It's also so nice to be able to walk to the Farmer's Market and nearby park. I would definitely stay in condo 105 again!!!

Awesome! We will definately be back!
Condo 105 was wonderful! Great location. Beautiful view of the ocean. It would take us 3 hours to have our breakfast on the lanai because we were watching all the whales & sea turtles. The condo met all our expectations & more. Very clean. The free parking was an added bonus & the WiFi was a great way to stay connected to family back home. We hope to return soon.

Outstanding ocean view
We stayed in Kaleialoha Resort Condo 105 from Dec 22/11 to Jan 6/12. We had a fantastic time. The people we met were extremely friendly and very helpful. The condo was perfect for our family of 3. We saw whales and dolphins right from the lanai. Breakfast and dinners were enjoyed from the lanai every day. The BBQ area was used just about every day. It was very helpful being on the ground floor. We would definitely return to Kaleialoha 105 and the Lahaina area. I have recommend this condo and the area to several friends already.

Whales, Waves and Weather!
The lanai is a beautiful place to watch the whales breach and frolic, have breakfast and enjoy pupus and a mai tai with a candlelight dinner. Enjoyed Bbqing at the ocean's edge. We love the sound of the ocean, so it was lovely listening to the waves at night. Overall, very comfortable place to spend a week in Maui.
Bring binoculars for best whale watching. Turtles will greet you with a heads up in the morning. Wonderful, quiet clientele. It would be nice if they moved the smoking area which is just to the left of the condo by the waters edge to the front of the condo so the smoke doesn't blow into the condo...
Lounge chair police
The condo size and appointments are absolutely wonderful, but don't attempt to move a beach-side lounge chair onto the the ground-level lanai as the on-site "lounge chair monitor" takes a count each day. Not being one who likes to be in public view, I moved one of the lounges onto our lanai, but despite the maximum number of people ever using the 18 chairs on a daily basis, having one on our lanai was unacceptable and removed by the manager :( Other than that and a closure of the swimming pool for 1-1/2 days for maintenance...our stay was delightful and we will return.

lake zurich, IL
We found this condo to be very nice. The view
was wonderful and the people both working there and
vacationing were very friendly and helpful. We
would definately come back and recommend this unit.
This was our first time in Hawaii and we were very pleased with this condo and our expectations were met/exceeded. The location and atmosphere was everything we wanted. Semi private and comfortable, but yet close to everything.
We ate on the lanai every morning and watched the whales, and swam with the turtles almost daily!
We would not hesitate to make future reservations for this condo...matter of fact we are planning our next trip for 2012!
This was a great condo with a great sunset view every night. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
This was our honeymoon, and it was an absolutely perfect place to stay. The condo was lovely, sparkling clean, and the patio opened up right onto the oceanfront as described. We stayed 2 weeks, and were very happy with the location and accommodations. Everyone we met there was very friendly. We will definitely come back for another stay at Cheri's condo!!
West Des Moines, IA
Fantastic condo in a beautiful location
Great property in a great location, just steps from the ocean. A beautiful ocean view from the lanai! You can snorkel with turtles right out front!
Awesome stay here. The view off the back patio is gorgeous! The bed is super comfy and lots of xtras like spices and such in the cabinet, snorkel gear and boogie boards. Cheri was very nice also when we called to ask questions. I think this was the best place we stayed so far on Maui and we've been going there once a year for the past 3yrs. We will be back.
Simply beautiful! Great location!
We recently stayed at unit 105 at Kaleialoha condos and I must say that our stay here has been a memorable one.The ocean is right in the backyard of the condo and the view is amazing! We saw whales and sea turtles right from the condo.The condo exceeded our expectations and the location is great! It had everything that a family with kids would need.

A Little Slice of Heaven
Aloha, Cheri! Where should I start! From swimming with my turtle buddies (remember folks - observe, don't disturb!), to the beautiful views of Lanai and Molokai, the rainbows, a return trip to Mt. Haleakala, the constant sound of the ocean, the beautiful grounds, the friendly folks, the gas grill, welcoming the spectacular sunsets each evening! A great location. A short drive to Front Street in Lahaina. We went to the Old Lahaina Luau, had cocktails at The Mixed Plate next door before the show. Saw Cirque Polynesia. Also, went to the Kupanaha Magic show dinner theater at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. The condo was comfortable and well equipped and it was great having a washer/dryer in the unit. Loved the large shower. The only con was that it got a bit warm in the unit a few times. The fans were helpful. Too bad the association didn't allow screen doors to be put on the front doors. When the front door is open a beautiful breeze blows through the unit. :-) We experienced our own little slice of heaven for 2 weeks. Mahalo, Cheri!
We had a blissful time at Kaleialoha. The view from condo 105's lanai is just amazing. Each morning we look out and see Molokai and Lanai islands and greet the green turtles at the condo beach. At night the sunset was so beautiful! We all felt so relaxed and at peace. We came with young girls and they had a terrific time. They are not strong swimmers and when we were at the condo they tended to use the pool, which is very comfortable.
We would recommend this place without reservation.
Mahalo to Cheri.

Nice place, good value
Nice clean first floor condo opens to grassy area to seawall. Genereally pretty quiet, wxcept for the roar of the waves. Access via steps to beach close by; the beach here is submerged during high tide. Ocean bottom is sandy with rocks protruding, and more rocks offshore for snorkeling. Living room/kitchen is bright and cheery. Kitchen is reasonably well equipped, and there were also a few basic spices and coffee items, paper goods, and the like. Good place to cook you own meals (also Bbqs close by). Bedroom is kind of dark, since windows there open to enclosed entry area. About a mile to convenient supermarket, and strip mall type restaurants close by. Not luxurious, but for the price, excellent location, and nice unit, it's a great value.
Perfect for the price
When we go to Hawaii we want to spend as little time indoors as possible. This condo was a great place to stay for people who are not interested in fancy pants hotels. On the minus side it could use an air conditioning unit for the hotter months and the internet was out. There was no cleaning spray for the counters in the kitchen and insufficient soap in the bathroom for the length of our stay. Finally, the shades on the bedroom window were basically homemade, kept falling down and allowed the obnoxious outdoor passage lighting to beam in at night and keep us awake.
Beautiful & comfortable
Comfortable and beautiful decor, well equipped kitchen, beautiful view, nice people, a lovely basket of goodies at check-in!
Rich and Mary Kay
The condo is lovely. It has some nice "extra"
touches. We loved the mirror on the patio wall.
It's also wonderful to listen to the sound of the
surf all night.
Extremely quiet there, also. That's a big plus.
Definitely somewhere we'd stay again.
La Ronge, Saskatchewan, Canada
The view says it all!
We stayed in Condo 105, and we couldn't ask for anything else. We had our 20 month old baby with us, and it was perfect. She loved the grass to play on and she loved going down to the beach. Everything was very clean. The Farmer's Market was an easy 5 minute walk, with a playground right across the street. One of the mornings we were having breakfast, and a pod of whales were showing off about 150 yards away. One of the many highlights of our trip. Thank You!
Nice location - plenty of whales to watch
We had the condo for a week. We appreciated the nice welcome basket and the location facing the ocean was great. We literally watched whales jumping out of the ocean right from the patio. We also saw sea turtles come right up to the sea wall. The ground floor location had some access advantages, but was also often noisy with people walking right in front of you and playing catch, etc. in a way that really invaded our perceived space. Nothing that could really be helped.
The condo has a nice (though out-dated) kitchen, although some of the teflon pans have deep scratches that are not healthy & should really be replaced. The furniture inside & out was all pretty out-dated and well worn. The condo comes with internet, but we never did get a connection to it, which was a disappointment. The bedroom was small, but we thought the bed was comfortable and storage was adequate for our needs. The furniture in the living area was just not very comfortable - fortunately, we did not spend that much time there. The TV was pretty old and small - which normally would not be that big of an issue since we like to be elsewhere most of the time, but it was the NCAA basketball tournament. We were provided a motion detector, which made us concerned for security, and we discovered it was so sensitive it was an annoyance & we didn't use it - just locked up at night. With noise around us on the lawn, it was just as well.
Proximity to Lahaina was good - some nice restaurants and beaches are nearby. We have been to Maui many times, so it goes without saying that Maui is a truly wonderful place, and this is a very nice part of the island to stay. I suspect next time we would stay elsewhere in Maui, although overall, we did have a pleasant time here.

What a View!
Other than the airplane ride to Hawaii, our experience at the condo was wonderful. The people within the complex are super people and very inviting. They made us feel we were still home and just having a neighborhood party every day at 5:00 in time for the sun to set.
The condo itself was perfect for the two of us. The convenience of being on the first floor was nice. Open the patio door to the lanai and heaven was waiting for you.Steps away from the water and the sea turtles that visited every day were so exciting.
The convenience of grocery stores and places to walk within a short distance was also great.
We highly recommend for those who are looking for relaxation and the quiet side.
Our 2nd Honeymoon and our 1st Babymoon
We loved the condo! Being that close to the ocean was spectular not to mention being able to walk right out to it. We listened to the waves all the time and really enjoyed watching the surfers ride the waves in front of the condo.
The condo itself was perfect for us-we loved the bed! Usually when we leave home we say oh I can't wait to get back to our bed-this bed was the opposite-we wanted to take it with us!
The kitchen was well appointed an it was great to have the washer and dryer in the unit. We would definitely stay here again-enjoy yourself the location is fantastic!
Monica and Glen and kids
This was our second time to Maui as a family and we truly enjoyed our experience. The vacation rental was in a great location with a priceless view.
Our suite was bigger then we expected - a king size bed and a washer and drier that I don't even think was mentioned in the website. It was exactly what a family with two small children were lookng for.
The pool was clean and the parking was included!

Superb location & situation
We loved unit 105. Its location was great and the
others at the location were very friendly. It
brought back fond memories of my stay on the same
highway as a kid nearly 40 years earlier. The
views every day and sunsets every night were
stunning. The first floor location and ability to
walk right out onto the lawn and overlook the shore
made this condo functionally much larger than its
actual footprint. Both adults and both kids (boys
8 and 2) thought it was terrific. The wifi access
was a bit odd, with my laptop only occasionally
getting a signal, but that was very minor. (After
all, if you're on your laptop much with a view like
that of 105, you're nuts!)
Glacier View Alaska
We loved this place. It's pretty, well set up, comfortable, great bed. It was wonderful being right on the water- you could watch the surf, the turtles, snorkel, walk the beach. It's close to coffee, shops, good places to eat, farmers market, beaches, the harbor, etc. Even tho' it's in the midst of lots of condos we still felt a sense of being secluded being on the lanai and looking out at the water.
This unit is tastefully decorated and nicely furnished. However, upon awaking our first morning we were puzzled to see metal poles standing immediately outside the lanai door. Then upon further inspection tools, paint buckets, air compressors, and much more were strewn around the lanai. Since we are travling with a 2 year old this immediately meant that the lanai area was dangerous. At 8 AM a work crew showed up and closed off our access to the ocean-- both from the unit and the steps around the building-so much for all of the promises of ocean and 30 steps to the waves. After telephoning the owner we were immediately offered a 50% discount or the option to move out...considering that a day had already been wasted and we had already settled into the unit and that we had not traveled to Maui to spend all of our time searching for a new unit or packing and unpacking several times. Of course the owner, being an attorney and real estate broker, knew that she was in trouble. There is no excuse for not knowing what is happening at your own unit, especially since the construction had been continuing for several weeks. There are many other units in the same area as well as better locations in Kihei. In general the Big Island has much more to offer compared to Maui.
Response from Aloha Condos - 11/07/2009
I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the work being done on the property. We were under the impression that you were quite satisfied with our offer of a half-price stay and would certainly have helped you find an alternate accommodation. The fact is that property management did not notify us of this project as they normally do. Had we been aware that work was to take place, we would have notified you immediately and made every effort to accommodate you.
Beautiful location and very relaxing
My husband, 4 year old son and I stayed in unit 105
and had a wonderful family vacation. This ground
floor unit was not only well equipped with everything
we needed, it was also perfect for my son to play on
the grass outside our lanai. The location and views
were spectacular. The few steps down to the beach
made for a nice quick jump in the ocean. We also saw
many sea turtles just off shore. All the people we
ran into at the Kaleialoha were very helpful and
welcoming. We'd definitely stay there again!
A very comfortable and ideally located condo
We had a wonderful stay in Condo 105 at the Kaleialoha Resort. Everything was as described and all of the amenities and accomodations were high quality. We were especially pleased with the king-size bed, which was extremely comfortable - something we can't say about every condo we've stayed in!! We had the trade winds, so there was always a nice breeze thru the unit. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay and we would recommend this condo to anyone.
Brittany, Rosie, Anthony, Seth and Micah
We enjoyed the fact that the ocean was right out the front door. It is not a real kid friendly beach but it was a nice vacation spot. It was only a short walk away from kid friendly beaches.
Had a great time
This is a great place to stay. The local environment is nice to be a part of, rather than the typical tourist trap stuff. It was so nice to be right on the ocean side. We saw and swam with the resident sea turtles numerous times during our stay. I would recommend bringing a suitcase full of food to save money.
Mount Vernon, WA
Just what we needed!
We just spent a wonderful 10 days at Cheri's place on Maui and it was an
ideal experience. This is the first time that we stayed in a vacation rental
home in the U.S. -- and it was perfect.The condo was close to the beach
and on the ground floor, just a short walk across the lawn to enjoy our
morning coffee with Molokai, Lahaina and the Pacific to greet us. The
manager had keys waiting for us on arrival. Everything was in order
when we arrived, and we were pleased to learn that the pictures online
matched the home. It's actually nicer than the pictures! We had to extend
our stay 1 day early and Cheri could not have been more accommodating.
We'd definitely recommend this condo - especially if you're looking to
relax and want to spend a lot of your vacation at the beach. We cooked,
on both the gas and the charcol grills and they were clean and ready to
use. With stores in Lahaina and a local natural food store all our needs
were met. We'll be definitely back next year. Aloha & Mahala Jim & Pam

Wonderful Place To Stay
I really enjoyed staying at the Kaleialoha Resort. My condo unit was outfitted in a tropical motif, the livingroom was roomy and pleasant, the kitchen was appointed with most everything I needed, and the bedroom was very nice. My unit also had a small ice-chest, a beach umbrella, snorkels and fins which was a big plus. There were also 2 different kinds of plug-in fans which were definitely needed on the hot days (90 degrees plus). It was wonderful to open the glass doors, walk out onto the grass and sit in a chaise lounge, or eat at one of the tables, and look out onto the ocean. A beautiful experience! I would definitely go back to the Kaleialoha Resort.
bob & lynn
We have stayed at Kaleialoha many, many times over the last 20 years. We have always found the units to be first rate. It is a place we love to returned to. We've also recommended it to many friends.
Loved Our Stay
I had never been to Hawaii, had a business trip to Honolulu and had a few days to see another another island. I loved the 1st floor location; we could walk out our door and overlook the ocean. We were surprised to see a gathering outside our first night there (Monday), and discovered an informal potluck that occurs every Monday night. Everyone was friendly, made us feel welcome even thoughwe were short term, and recommended things to do and places to eat. I wanted to see whales and sea turtles and we were told to just look out at the water. We saw more whales (at a distance) than we did later on a whale watching boat trip. The condo was very clean and comfortable. My son and I would gladly stay there again.
Home away from home
Relaxing home away from home.
Very quaint, clean and quiet condo space. The owner was avaiable to speak with prior to my stay. The manager was also available to us, although we didn't need them during the 2 week stay. The views from the patio were unobstructed and beautiful. As soon as I can get 2 weeks off again I plan to stay in the same codo. We had everything we needed...towels, kitchen stuff,music,comfortable furnishing... a great market to walk to, a grill on sight...It was wonderful!
Safe area. We never felt nervous about being watched, robbed...( as there were 2 women staying )... great local restaurants near by too! Book it now!
Safe and Convenient for Baby's First Trip
This cozy unit made our stay in Maui pleasant. As new parents, it was great to feel like we were enjoying it all (whales and Maui sunsets from the lanai or even the couch!) even though we needed to stay close to 'home' much of the time. The parking lot is small so it was so easy to tote baby and gear to and from the condo. We appreciated the nearby amenities as well such as a kids' playpark and supermarket. Having laundry right in the unit was very handy and a feature we will seek out at other destinations. The kitchen was so well-stocked that we even ended up making baby food there (the selection of 'bought' food wasn't great, even at Wal-Mart). Since the whole focus of this review has been the family-friendliness of Unit 105, I will mention that we did have enough room in the bedroom for a crib (great baby rentals on Maui!) but there is no bath tub, only a shower. Lastly, if you do go, make sure to take your garbage out frequently, in just a few days, creepy crawlies will come to visit. We felt so safe letting our little guy play because it's a ground-floor unit. The location is also very handy for setting out for other beaches in the area. We especially recommend taking a snorkel set out to Kahana Bay -the fish were fantastic! :-)
Calgary, AB, Canada
We had stayed in another unit at this location and really enjoyed the area. Found this unit via a google search - ground floor - made the stay much better. Unit contained all the amenities required, very clean and very comfortable. Definitely a possible unit for our next trip to Hawaii as it is close to everything, has access to a good beach, good snorkeling and plenty of turtles. Good location for whale watching later in the year.
Sun and Sand
A most enjoyable stay at this one bedroom condo. Clean with lots of room for two end equiped with everything you needed. The nice part was the ground floor unit was great for access to the beach area. The patio was in shade for most of the day once you have had enough of the sun. The people we met in the complex were most helpful and friendly.
This was our first trip to Maui and we would highly recommend this unit. We just wish we were able to spend more time their, but maybe next time.
Looking forward to next time!
Great spot and a nice condo. Close to lots of good Maui activities as
well as all the necessities. Great view and walk out to an ocean-front
view. Hard to beat!
We had a wounderful time. It was just what we needed. The condo was on the gound floor, so make getting to the beach and the outside area for sunning and relaxing so much easier.
Thank you for allowing us to use your condo.

I found this rental on the VRBO website and e-mailed the owner for additional info. She responded to my query promptly and helpfully. Everything about check-in went smoothly. The unit itself was about the best located in the condo. Oceanside and very quiet. The unit itself was spotless and had every amenity we needed. Particulary enjoyed swimming with the resident turtle about 50 feet directly in front of condo. Very handy to all services. Pool was always clean and hardly used. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay and look forward to again enjoying our next holiday there.
we have enjoyed are stays at 105 its a wonderfull place to relax. in 2008 we took our whole family to maui 12 people and it was cost effective to stay at kaanipali shores. for 2009 we will again stay at the shores again because in the package it comes to less than $100 dollar a day.

Best Vacation Ever!
We stayed here for a week in April 2008, our first time to Maui and the first time not staying in a hotel, this couldn't have been a better experience!
The condo (105) was just as described, the pictures found on their website (www.alohacondos.com) are exactly what it looked like and we really enjoyed being on the ground floor, just a short skip to the lawn chairs and BBQ. We bought groceries and cooked most of the time we stayed and this was an added plus, the kitchen was fully stocked with pots & pans, dishes, silverware, everything we needed and felt right at home.
The condo isn't a part of the Kaleialoha Resort but the staff couldn't have been more helpful in answering questions and giving us information about best places to eat and visit (and so were the other tenants and homeowners).
There's no beach directly in front of the resort but made no difference, the snorkeling was good, we had sea turtles not more then 5 feet away and it's a short walk to Black Beach.
I highly recommend Aloha Condos and Unit 105, everything was perfect and we're planning another trip this year, will definetly stay here.
Can't wait to get back......
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The neighbors were all really friendly. We enjoyed the pool, the kitchen and the location of the beach right out our back door!
Really nice owner, gift basket, wonderful neighbors nightly gatherings to watch the sunset. This unit is right on the patio area. Great views of the ocean but limited privacy. Bed was fairly comfortable. The only negative would be the cockroaches. There were lots of them. This is a common problem on the islands. I would maybe consider this unit again but I would make it a point of seeing where the buildings were at with infestations. Again, it happens everywhere over there.

What a wonderful restful holiday we had at Kaleialoha Resort #105. The room was immaculate and the Aloha basket was very thoughtful. The well stocked condo had everything you could need, including beach chairs, Boogie Board and something they didn't advertise, a private washer and dryer.The Lanai is about 15 steps to the ocean, where every day we would watch the turtles feeding and the whales breaching. There is a small beach (went swimming there 3 times) but its probably more accessible in the Spring, Summer and Fall. The back off the Lanai is well grassed and lots of lounge chairs for sunning. If you are looking for parties and night life in you place of residence, this is not the place for you. If however you are looking for a quiet well kept little peace of heaven to recharge your batteries, this would be a great place for you to go. For us, it was just a wonderful restful 3 weeks. By the way, the golfing was fabulous. Aloha.
Our stay at Kaleialoha was both affordable and
relaxing. We found the Condo and grounds to be
perfectly kept and the support personel first class, with one of the most beautifull views
in the islands. Our thanks to Willie for the
whale watching boat ride.

Gorgeous waterfront sunsets
Wonderful suite with beautiful oceanfront location. Loved hearing the waves crashing at night. Quiet location as well. Have recommended it to others & will definitely stay there again if it's available.

This is paradise. Only 25 feet to the lounge chairs to relax in the sun. A few feet away are the stairs to the sand and water. A first floor condo is the only way to live. I've stayed twice at Kaleialoha 105 and hopefully again in Sept 2009. The pool is solar and its wonderful. The bbq area is wonderful. The guests and residences are very friendly. A short drive to Lahaina for excellent tacos and happy hour at the Blue Lagoon. Longs Drugs store is the place to purchase beverages when you run out. Did I tell you about the turtles, hootie the seal and dolphins? Big/huge turtles swim right up to the waters edge, hottie swims by occasionaly and we've seen dolphins in the distance. I recommend this unit 1000%. Have a grrrreat time.

Private, Perfectly Amazing
We enjoyed everything about this condo, from the birds visiting on the lanai to the front row seat on the ocean (which crashed over the wall one night - exhilerating!) to the exclusive view, all the amenities and an affordable price. We consider it our home away from home and long to return one day. From our lawn chair perch with feet up on the wall we watched the turtles and whales and soaked the sun and were lulled by the waves and the soft breeze. You will love this place, but I'm hesitant to say so, because the schedule will fill.
Beautiful view and relaxing
This was our third stop and our favorite stop in the islands. We loved the condo as it was right on the ocean and quiet. It was near areas we wanted to expoler and made our visit extra nice. We did not get a chance to cook on the grills but I would like to do that next time - yes, next time. The gift basket was full of wonderful treats and very thoughtful. My husband and I have recommended this condo to others and hope to get back there ourselves. Maui was our favorite island because of the beauty and peacefulness for a relaxing vacation.
