It's all about the best location and the classic beauty of an elegant remodel.
You can't get any closer to the ocean than Hale Ono Loa. My home offers million dollar ocean and sunset views (and a brand new Cali King bed), and excellent snorkeling just steps away.
Hale Ono Loa is located in Honokowai (west Maui) just minutes from the Kaanapali resort area and the Kapalua golf courses. We are surrounded by the amazing beaches at Napili Bay, D.T. Fleming, Kapalua Bay and Kaanapali black rock. You can also stroll to the beach next door. Duke’s Last Resort at the new Honua Kai resort, and Honokowai Beach Park for families, are both a short five minute walk. My condo is ten minutes from Lahania and five minutes to the West Maui Airport. Shops, a supermarket, and restaurants are just a few blocks away.
My home was recently remodeled, and is regarded as one of the nicest in the area. An upgraded bathroom and kitchen, along with beautiful bamboo floors, lend my home a feeling of elegance and serenity. There is a ceiling fan in every room that catches the famous Maui trade-winds and keeps you cool year-round. Along with the professionally appointed furnishings and decor, you will find my home fully equipped with all of the amenities for your comfort, including a luxury pillowtop mattress for extra comfort. I took great care in selecting high quality furnishings, with the expectation that my guests will be comfortable and happy to spend time in my home.
Our association completed a renovation of the entire complex in 2010, with Hale Ono Loa now described as the crown jewel of the oceanfront properties located along the west Maui beachfront. The most amazing aspect of Hale Ono Loa are the jaw-dropping sundecks, which are practically on top of the ocean. There is a set of stairs to the right of the sundecks, which takes you directly down to the reef for snorkeling. We even have our own turtles "in residence"! During the whale season (November through April) you can watch whales and spinning dolphins from your lanai, or the sundecks.
The private large pool and sun deck area is surrounded with large coconut palms and numerous tropical plants. These tropical gardens are well maintained, conveying the feeling that you are a part of Old Hawaii. This area is located on the ocean and will provide you with many hours of comfort and relaxation.
Maui is the perfect place for your vacation, wedding celebration or honeymoon in paradise! Hale Ono Loa provides all of the comforts and conveniences you will need during your stay at my home.

“Amazing place great location”
Cant state it enough amazing little condo, with great views. Best private snorkeling spot and relaxing views of the sunset. Close to shopping, tourism, and private enough for a relaxing feel. Close to the laundry room and has a great little modern kitchen to cook or bbq. Owner spruced up the place to make guests feel warm and relaxed and has beach supplies available. Great place to book will book again in the future visits to Maui.
This condo was amazing felt like home. Best part was the view of the sunset going up and down, and the turtles along with snorkeling next to the condo. This place was clean easy to get too and close to everything. Would book again!!!
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at Hale Ono Loa in Kristin's condo! We absolutely loved the location and the feel. The condo complex really is right on the ocean and the views are both relaxing and breath taking. The sea turtles on the reef each day were absolutely amazing, the condo grounds were really beautiful, and Kristin has impeccable taste in decorating her condo. We had three adults and two children, so we used the aerobed and the sofabed, and both were very comfortable. We also enjoyed all the great beach items she provides and the personal recommendations she shares on where to go. We were able to cook most of our meals, saving lots of money and enjoying the great views from the patio. We walked to the local farmer's market, restaurants and shops. We also walked to the beach. We wished we could have stayed for months and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Maui now - it was absolutely perfect!
This was such a beautiful relaxing place to come home to every night! Every morning we would wake up early before we went out and watch the sea turtles which were the biggest we had seen on the island right out on the beach front. The swimming in snorkeling in the area make it feel like you are doing an activity even if you don't leave that area.Everything we needed and more was just a walk away. The beaches were not packed at all which we enjoyed. Everything you read on here is true and we are recommending this place to friends and our family as we know they will not be disappointed. Kristin was more than helpful and was very quick to answer any questions we had. The people at the condo were so friendly, pleasant and helpful! Everything she and the people in the condo suggested were the most helpful suggestions we got on the entire trip.. we enjoyed everything we did that she sends in her package of suggestions. Hawaii is am amazing experience but with us only having one week to stay on Maui it was nice to get good advice to make our trip the best it could possible be!
Our stay here was amazing. We are two ladies in our late 20's and early 30's and this was the perfect place. Close enough to everything, yet not right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. This place is perfect for families, couples, or friends. Kristen has everything you need including beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, and more. The condo was quiet and had amazing views. We could see turtles right from the decks. I have already recommended this place to many friends and will most definitely be returning as soon as possible. You simply can't beat the quality and price. Kristen was also very quick to respond.
“Perfect Vacation Spot!”
A big "thank you!" to Kristin for allowing my husband and I to stay in her vacation home for our Hawaii trip! It was absolutely perfect! I have told everyone who will listen to me brag about my experience about this condo. It was very easy working with Kristin making the arrangements, and her recommendations came in very handy since we had never been to the islands before. We had a perfect view from the balcony and the condo has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. If you are planning a trip to Maui, then I highly recommend this condo!
“Swim with the sea turtles!”
The condo was excellent! Newly remodeled. Very comfortable. Had everything we needed. Chairs for the beach! My husband walked 10 feet and swam with 13 Sea Turtles several times!
“Complete and utter relaxation in an island paradise”
Kristin's condo in West Maui is wonderful! First off, Kristin is quick to respond to any and all inquiries (even the same question twice!). In the materials Kristin provides, you get the feeling she really wants you to enjoy her condo, the island and all of Hawaii. There aren't lists of restrictions but rather ideas of fun things to do. Another bonus, before we even got in the door was the fact that parking in the condo lot was free. The directions are fantastic and upon arrival we were greated with information and chocolate provided by the cleaning company! Kristin's lanai looks out over the pool and sun porch through palm trees to the ocean. A great aspect is the lanai is at an angle to the water so the sun is not directly shining on you making for perfect mornings, afternoons and evenings relaxing. Also in the pool area are two Bbq's cleaned and maintained daily. What a treat! Everyone we talked with was friendly and quite willing to share ideas and stories - a nice community. Kristin's condo comes with fans in each room, making the most of the breezes coming in through the door. The furniture and decor just add to the feeling you are in paradise. Close to the condo is the "Farmer's Market Store" with an outdoor market a couple times during the week. Make sure to go inside for wonderful, fresh food at quite reasonable prices. Close by is a grocery store, again with friendly people and great prices. Perhaps my favorite was the proximity to fantastic sandy beaches with great snorkeling. All in all an amazing place to stay. Thank you!
We had a great time at Kristin's place. It really met our needs well and was a great size for the three of us. The complex was very quiet and the pool rarely had more than a couple of people in it (a good thing in my mind). We liked that it had a 9' deep end so that my daughter and I could swim around in it a bit. As advertised, we saw the sea turtles off the front side pretty much every day including one day when there were five or six grazing right at the shoreline - almost within touching distance, though we kept back to stay out of their space. We also appreciated the full size fridge which accommodated all the stuff we picked up at Costco on our way in from the airport. It was great to have fresh pineapple and other tropical fruit each morning and with dinner. While the wind was a bit wild sometimes, it certainly made for nice sleeping conditions and we only needed the fans on the lowest settings during the night to sleep comfortably. As Kristin mentioned, we found a few basic starter items for the kitchen and left a few more on our departure. The place was very clean when we arrived too - the cleaning company is doing nice work. Kristin's write-up was very handy for suggestions to get to some local places (especially for parking in some cases). We went to lots of beaches including the local park, Blackrock, Big Beach, Slaughterhouse and some others. We also found some neat places to eat in near Honokawaii and Lahaina. Having internet access and a tracfone made it so easy to do research and get things like a luau and Molokini trip booked. I went out for a jog toward Ka'anapali a couple mornings. It was a bit cloudy and even sprinkled rain, but it was very refreshing all the same. Full cable and some HD channels was nice to have when we wanted to rest. In august since the sun does not blast directly in the lanai window, there was never a time that we came inside to a sweltering suite-a very positive experience.
“Stunning Condo on the beach”
Kristin's condo was a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Her condo is conveniently located right between all the action on west Maui- north of Lahaina and Ka'anapali and south of Kapalua and Napili. The condo was updated and comfortable for our family of four with all the amenities we needed. We were able to put the kids down for bed and enjoy dinner on the lanai. Kristin quickly responded to all of my e-mails and check in and out was very easy. She also provided her own tips on taking advantage of everything that Maui has to offer.
