Beautiful oceanfront two bedroom condo with king bed, two twin beds and sleeper sofa that can accommodate up to six people. The condo was fully remodeled and refurnished in 2014. The condo is located literally on the beach and adjacent to a park. Unit #101 is located on the ground floor and enjoys direct ocean views. The complex features a pool, laundry facilities, parking and barbecues. The complex is across the street from a farmer’s market and several small restaurants.
We invite you to view the reef fish at low tide in the early morning…play in the ocean, snorkel or swim with the sea turtles. The inviting beach just outside our condo is perfect for building sand castles, relaxing with a favorite book or enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of “Old Hawaii”.
We are located in the small community of Honokowai in West Maui and are just minutes from the world-famous Kaanapali Beach, Kapalua and Napili Bay as well as the historic town of Lahaina. Honokowai has some of the best weather in Maui. World-class golf courses are located nearby.

This place was a really good find. We dealt with the managers and had no problems at all. The position is right on the sea and on the public beach park so it is convenient if you've got kids. We loved the turtle sightings every afternoon. The market across the street and the coffee shop were also excellent, we would stay here again

An amazing location steps from the ocean. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves at night, swimming with the turtles during the day. The open space of the park next door is a nice buffer, and the markets across the street were convenient and had some good foods. There's a great cross-breeze to keep the place cool. The property is a little older, but the unit has been updated. The modern kitchen has all the tools for making meals to enjoy on the lanai. I liked how the closet was well-stocked with water toys, snorkel gear, ice chest. Plus replacement light bulbs and extra towels. Even has a folding table and chairs to set up at the park. The flashlight was nice to have for spying on the beach crabs, geckos and cane toads at night! And the herb garden on the wall outside was a nice touch. As for Hale Kai, we enjoyed meeting some of the long-term residents and blowing the conch shell at sunset. The BBQs work great, and the pool is clean and refreshing. The office staff is very friendly. The laundry room/library/recycling area is kept clean. Parking was never a problem - every unit gets a spot so it works out fine. We were very relaxed and the kids had the best experience getting to know the island.

This was our third visit to The Hale Kai and this time we brought the entire family, all 16 of them. Everyone loved this place. Thank you for being there for us to enjoy and thank you to all the staff who helped us arrange for our fabulous reunion. Chuck and Beth Howell and family

We have stayed at the Hale Kai several times over the past 28 years. I visited with my parents as a child and now my husband and family. We love the Hale Kai.
This past trip we wanted to rent 101 for the whole two weeks when I initiated reservations in August 2012. At that time i was told 101 was only available for 5 days so i took it and booked 102 for the remainder. In late February i was online and noticed 101 had opened for 6 more days. I phoned to ask to take those additional days and was told i could not change my reservation within 60 days without a charge. Then there was another charge for staying in 102 less than 5 days. I just felt the policy was very unflexible to make the accomodation since it was my original request to stay in 101 as long as possible. and it sat empty from the day we left until 6 days later. Frustrating and silly! Thank you, Kim Hikade--looking forward to my next trip to the Hale Kai !!! ps--the place looks better than ever too

We've been coming the same time each year for 12 years. It was our 8 year old's 9th trip. The housecleaning service was quite poor. The unit's large windows were not clean and the unit itself was not very clean. The cleaning mid trip was very sloppy and we know the cleaning lady and tipped her. If it was my property I would be quite unhappy with how unclean it is being kept. Valerie in property mgt. is fantastic. She is so responsive and helpful. We come because the same friends have been coming for 30 and 40 years and our daughter is like a grandchild to them. We want to keep coming each year but if people our age come for the first time the units have to be clean so they'll want to come back.
Aloha Brandi & Vincenzo I am very dissappointed about your comments. I am responsible for the housekeeping and you never once said anything to me. I can not correct what I do not know about.I am sorry your expectation were not met. It is a great unit with a view you can not get much better or closer to the ocean. The owners remodeled the kitchen and bath in 2012, they boughtnew beds and a very large flat screen TV and take great pride in their unit. I am sure they will find this review unsettleing. To the owners I say I am confused by the guests. Mahalo Valerie

We love Hale Kai and 101 is the best location of all the units. We like the improvements that have been made in the last couple of years. The only thing missing was a pair of binoculars to watch the whales.
Mahalo for your kind words! We liked your suggestion regarding the binoculars - great idea!Looking forward to your return next year.Aloha, Carolyn and Kathy, owners

The location of this condo was perfect. It was quiet and peaceful. The only interruptions was the noise of the surf and the lookouts for whales, sea turtles, and monk seals. The place was even better than the pictures. I'm sure we'll be back again! Aloha!

We had a wonderful seven day stay at #101 Hale Kai. The view from our sitting room and patio was astounding. The turtles frolicked in the waves just off our patio. The condo was well equipped. The location great with a farmers market and gourmet coffee shop right across the street.
Aloha RobertOur location is just one of the great thing about Hale Kai. Our Honokowai Turtles have their own web site and are kept track of. They feed off our property alongthe reefs so they are here on and off all day. Mahalo for staying with us at Hal Kai Valerie

The location can't be beat, and the pool is lovely. Unit 101 has wonderful views of the ocean.
Unit 101 could use a bit of maintenance. Some paint is peeling, the coffee maker didn't always work, and the twin beds were just downright uncomfortable. A memory foam topper was present in the master bedroom, which made that bed very comfortable; similar toppers for the twin beds would be nice--or just get new mattresses. Also, a number of the jalousie blinds on the park side of the unit were broken (the plastic frames for the glass were cracked, so the glass was slipping out). The VCR didn't work (so we couldn't watch the movies available), although the DVD player worked just fine. Finally, although the kitchen and bathroom have been updated recently, the rest of the furnishings are quite dated. It has the potential to be a spectacular rental, if only a little TLC and cash are invested into the unit.
Aside from these issues, we had a great stay. The property management is great, the location is great, and it is a good value for the price you pay compared to other spots on Maui. This was our third time to Hale Kai, and we will likely come visit again.
Mahalo for your review ~ we always enjoy hearing from our guests! Glad you liked our new Cal King sized bed with the topper - we love it too! We'll check on the comfy level of the twin beds - thanks for the heads up. We periodically replace the tropical furniture to keep our condo fresh and inviting. The current collection celebrates Maui's famous red dirt with rust, brown and orange hues while the miniature palm tree pattern in the fabric mimics the abundant number of palms close by. We've just purchased a 42" flat screen TV and a Blue Ray DVD-CD player . . . nice additions to our unit. Glass jalousies do occasionally slip out of their holders - unfortunately it happens - we're sorry for the inconvenience. It has been fixed.You're so right - the location and views speak volumes. Glad you enjoyed your stay!Aloha, Carolyn & Kathy, owners

Unit 101 was perfect for us...easy backdoor access to a great beach, ocean sounds and breezes filtering through a multitude of louvered windows, friendly staff - as well as neighbors. As a family who prefers casual and active over formal and frou-frou we really couldn't have been happier. Plenty of space, daylight, amenities etc without any of the claustrophobic high-rise jet-set mentality (which is where you'll find sterile boredom!). For us, this was Maui/Hawaii at its best....not to mention the location is brilliant for going back and forth from west to south etc. Fabulous stay - I hope we'll be back some day...
Glad you’ve enjoyed Hale Kai 101 over the past thirty years. Mahalo ~ look forward to your return nextspring! Hope you were pleased with our new kitchen; we are constantly striving to keep this condoupdated – improvements to the bathroom are in the works.
