“A Slice of Paradise!”
We found the perfect fit for a girls getaway to Maui with our Hale Kai rental #213. I knew I wanted to stay in Honokaui area and find an affordable rental for us gals on a budget but really didn't want to flip a coin to see who gets the bedroom and who gets a hide-a-bed. I then came across a ocean front condo unit that included the option of a murphy bed (with nice new comfy mattress I might add) and I knew this was it. All newly remodeled with a vaulted ceiling, and beautiful kitchen, the rental had everything we needed. We moved the coffee table aside and had enough room for us to practice yoga nearly every morning. It was quite warm mid Sept and at first was hesitant to rent a condo without air conditioning but the unit has several fans and when we moved to a condo down in Kihei for our last few nights we immediately ran over to turn off the a/c. It was too cold and too noisy, we knew then we had quickly acclimated to the tropical Maui climate. I've stayed in about 6 condos in this area in the past and would not hesitate to return to Hale Kai #213!
“A very special place to stay!”
My wife, daughter and I stayed at Hale Kai #213 a couple weeks ago. We were so very pleased with the unit, as well as the property as a whole. The unit was very clean, updated, well positioned on the property with a wonderful ocean facing view. Our daughter slept easily on one of the 2 murphy beds in the living room. This feature was excellent as we could easily return the bed to upright during the day and use the living room when needed. The bedroom my wife and I slept in was very comfortable and spacious. The lanai was our special place each evening to relax after active days enjoying the surrounding area's offerings. From the lanai we could sit and look at island of Lana'i, the stretch of ocean in between, and we even saw sea turtles and spinner dolphins. After enjoying the incredible sunset each night (directly visible from the lanai) we would watch the stars come out 1 by 1 until the sky was full. We miss the routine so much already. We also enjoyed meeting the friendly and welcoming residents of the property. We learned about and participated in the daily conch shell horn blowing ceremony at sunset. The closeness of the property to Lahaina was very convenient to quickly drive to the venues for snorkeling, surfing, and dinner cruise excursions. The surrounding neighborhood was also great, with an organic market, coffee shop, water sports equipment rental, awesome restaurants, and an excellent beach park. So many things to see & do that were so close! Our Maui experience was so much better as a result of staying at Hale Kai, and we would eagerly recommend it to our friends and family. We already plan on staying there for our next Hawaiian vacation.
Response from the manager Aloha Jim, Thanks for sharing your experience. A place that you'll want to return to time after time is exactly what we aim to provide, so we're glad to hear that your family had such a nice stay. As the view of Lanai is quite limited from our unit, the island view you were enjoying was probably that of Molokai. Otherwise I think your description nailed it, so much so that I'm longing for the time that we'll return ourselves. Please come stay with us again in the future. Mahalo, Matt & Emiko Mathews, Hale Kai # 213
“Laid Back Maui Style”
My wife and I spent a fantastic week in early June in this exceptional unit. Unit #213 is wonderful. A lot of work has been put into the upkeep and it shows. Great comfortable king bed, clean modern kitchen with excellent appliances, updated bathroom, great living space with flat screen TV and I-pod docking station, and a lanai with spectacular view of ocean and Molokai. The quiet and less crowded pace is what really attracts us to the Hale Kai. Park right in front of your unit (no parking fees); walk across the street to local grocery; easy drive to Lahaina or Kahana; well maintained swimming pool; amazing sunsets; and friendly people. Are you kidding me.... we will be back.
Response from the manager Aloha Marc, Many mahaloz for sharing your feedback. Your title really says it all. We look forward to hosting you again sometime. Mahalo, Matt Mathews, Hale Kai # 213
“The place to stay”
This was my second time to Maui and my second time staying on the West side. This resort and in particular condo number 213 was exactly as its described online and an absolute wonderfull place to stay. The condo was remodeled in 2010 and was done beautifully. The resort is clean and allways being washed or updated in some way. The grounds staff were out working every day on something to maintain the high level of neatness and overall look of the property. The owner of my condo was very concerned that ors stay was plesent and that all items in the condo was functioning as it should. He could not have been more informative and helpfull. The resort is low key and quiet which is exactly what we wanted. We would stay there again and again. The absolute only thing we had a problem with is the Cal King bed was very soft and by the end of the week was bothering our backs. Be aware that my girlfriend and I are both stomach sleepers.
Response from the manager Aloha Justin, thanks for providing your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that the bed was not to your liking. It is just two years old this month, so I don't think this is due to it being worn out. We were also just there last month and didn't notice it being too soft, although I guess people's preferences can be very subjective in that regard. We'll monitor the situation though and replace if this feedback becomes more common. So far, this is the first time anyone has registered a complaint about it. I'm glad you and your girlfriend found everything else to your liking and thank you for mentioning the efforts of our grounds people, who have been working hard to improve and maintain our gardens and common areas. Mahalo, Matt Mathews, Hale Kai #213
From start to finish, my experience with Hale Kai has been exceptional. The unit is thoughtfully furnished and perfectly located. I would definitely stay here again
Response from the manager Aloha Lisa, Thanks so much for your recommendation and for sharing your experience with our unit. A place that you'll want to return to time after time is exactly what we aim to provide, so we'll look forward to hosting you again in the future. Mahalo, Matt & Emiko Mathews, Hale Kai #213
After getting married in Oahu, unit #213 was a perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The view was breathtaking when we first opened the door to the unit and looked out the lanai window. We especially enjoyed the proximity to the local food market and coffee shop. Walking distance to everything you need including yummy fish tacos down the street and gelato. It was great to have a park next door to throw around a frisbee. Skip the hustle and bustle of the other resorts in the area and book this quiet and intimate gem! We would definitely book this unit again in the future and hope be back to Hake Kai again!
Response from the manager Mahalo for sharing your feedback Dan. I think you summed it up pretty well, a view to die for, convenient neighborhood shops and restaurants, and feeling as though you've lived Hawaii rather than just visited there. We will look forward to hosting you and your wife again in the future, perhaps on your anniversary next time. Aloha, Matt & Emiko Mathews, Hale Kai # 213
“We'll be back!”
Loved the location, proximity to the ocean and beaches, kitchen, BBQ, laundry availability... all excellent. Views could not be better, sunsets and conch-blowing were a highlight each evening. Valerie was wonderful to work with and the property was extremely well-maintained. Thanks for a great stay - we look forward to returning!
Response from the manager Many mahaloz for your feedback. A place that you'll want to return to time and time again is exactly what we aim to provide, so we'll look forward to hosting you again. As it happens, we're enjoying our unit right now ourselves and the sunsets between Lanai and Molokai have been magnificent as usual, and the conch-blowing good fun too! Thank you as well for your kind words regarding Valerie, our Rental Office Manager. Having an onsite Rental Manager is of course very convenient for our guests, but we feel that having someone as special as Valerie in this position is just another factor that distinguishes Hale Kai from other properties.
“Fantastic ocean front property with casual charm!”
This property is a great way to "go local" without scrimping on the luxuries of home. We chose this property because we are anti resort people who wanted a low key experience. This unit has great upgrades and a view to die for. Neither of us have ever stayed in a unit that was this close to the water. We have a one year old and it was no trouble renting a crib from a local company and accommodating his sleep needs. There is no air conditioning, so it took us a bit to learn how to take advantage of the winds, but it can actually be quite comfortable once you get the hang of that. My only complaint is that the modern cable style of the railing on the lanai is not safe for children- especially babies. We had to keep our son away from the edge of the lanai at all times- he could easily pass through the cables if left alone. This is not the fault of this unit- the whole complex has this style. I think this unit is probably the best on this property if you consider all of the upgrades, the tasteful decor and the special touches considered by the owner. We would love to come back one day- we made a lot of special memories here as a family.
Response from the manager Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback, especially regarding the decor of which we are quite proud. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. You're right, if someone is looking for the resort experience, our property probably won't fill the bill. However, if they're looking for a beautiful setting without the high prices and noise associated with a resort, then our low-key property is probably just for them. The stainless-steel cable railings on our lanai that you mentioned were just installed in the last year to bring the railings up to current code. While the greater visibility that they afford may give the impression that a child could pass through them, please be assured that the distance between the cables conforms to standards that are designed to prevent such an occurrence. That said, I would still recommend against leaving a toddler unattended there. A place that you'll want to return to again and again is exactly what we aim to provide, so we'll hope to host you again in the future, perhaps when your son is old enough to utlize one of the murphy beds in the living room.Mahalo, Matt & Emi Mathews, Hale Kai 213
“Chillin' at Hale Kai”
We saw whales right from our balcony.... no sea sickness for us! This is definitely the place to be for a relaxing vacation. Aloha !
Response from the manager Aloha Chillin'Many Mahaloz for staying with us. Yes, our lanai makes for a wonderful whale watching perch during their annual visit to the islands, and a wonderous venue for relaxing by the sea at any time of the year.We'll look forward to hosting you again sometime in the future.Mahalo, Matt & Emi Mathews, Hale Kai # 213
As always, for the last 34 years, it was a wonderful visit with friends at a wonderful condo complex.
Response from the manager Aloha Don & Ruthie,Thank you for your continued patronage over the years. We'll look forward to hosting you again next year. Mahalo, Matt & Emiko Mathews, Hale Kai 213
