                        This wonderful place is just as described. We really enjoyed the great ocean view from the lanai. We weren't sure we would be able to see whales this late in the season but did at least 4 different days during our week. We went on a whale watching excursion but saw just as many whales right from the lanai. This condo was equipped with everything we needed and more. Everything is very clean and comfortable. We felt very much at home. Nani Kai Hale is centrally located which makes it easy to visit different parts of the island. The owners left helpful hints about shopping, restaurants, and activities. Mahalo, Barbara and John, for the wine and treats you left us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return to your fantastic condo.

                        This was the first time my husband and I have visited Maui. We loved this condo!!! It was perfect! We stayed in March 2014 and every morning we would have a cup of coffee in one hand and binoculars in the other, so we could watch the humpbackvwhales swim by, breach and slap their tails. Unbelievable! This location is perfect for getting around Maui and being right on the ocean makes all the difference. The condo is lovely and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Everything was very clean. The owners called us right away to make sure we had everything we needed and left us lots of information for nearby restaurants and activities. We would highly recommend this rental!

                        We loved this place so much the first time we stayed, we could not wait to get back for a second time. Well this past November we finally did. This time around was just as spectacular as the first time. The location is great, the unit is very clean, and the grounds are well maintained. The beach is 10 steps away from the building and there are miles of beach to walk on. Everything you could possibly need is in the unit. The only thing you need to bring is yourself. Bye the way, dealing with the owners directly vs. some rental agency is a huge bonus. As I did before, I again highly reccommend this place, you will not be disappointed.

                        We have stayed in a lot of units on Sugar Beach and this one is our favorite. It is ocean front and filled with light. The updates are so nice you want them in your home! The owners are thoughtful and accomodating, from birthday wishes to internet access advice, and plenty of supplies. Just home and can't wait to return to this terrific unit!

                        Our first visit to this condo was 1996 and we haven't missed a year since. It is everything we could ever want in a Maui vacation. We sit on the well maintained lawns and are just feet from the surf. Take a bob in the waves, a dip in the pool, it's all wonderful. The beach is ideal for children, no roads to cross and we love to get up every morning and walk 3 miles in either direction, barefoot. No rock, just endless "sugar" sand. The unit has EVERYTHING, and if something is missing, Barbara is quick to add it too. Lush beach towels, coolers for the Costco trips and picnics, chairs, laundry soap, you name it, it's here. It is spotlessly clean. You can watch spectacular sunsets and whales breaching, right from the lanai. Parking is safe, free and easy. The grounds are immaculate. The Wednesday night puu puu gatherings are fun, and offer a chance to meet other guests. We have made lifelong friends here on the lawn, and we gather here from Calgary, Victoria, Oregon at the same time to visit and share the past year experiences. Our grown children love to come here, with their friends, and next year with the grandbabies. Nothing beats the Nani Kai Hale, and this condo is our favorite in the building.

                        We did as much long-range research as we could (all the way to creating a comparison matrix of properties, and weighting the features we were looking for... my wife caught a little of my geekiness there!). The reviews of this property sold us, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that they are understatements - the location is great, the condo has everything you'll need (and then some), the property is spotless and well maintained - I could go on, but as someone else noted, if we say too much, there will be no open times for us when we want to come back! You can't go wrong with this one - enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed our 10 days there!

                        We took planning our Maui vacation very seriously, and are so glad we did! We found the place that has everything we could dream of, and more. The condo is beautifully furnished, supplied, and decorated. It has a lanai directly on the ocean that overlooks paradise on 3 sides. The area is more peaceful than any other we have seen, yet close to everything! The owners were very kind and easy to work with, as were all we met there, aloha spirit abounds here!. This wasn't our first VRBO experience, so we know everything doesn't always meet up to expectations, but this property certainly does and more! We have been patting each other on the back since we arrived that we chose the perfect place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! Look no further, you have found paradise! Mahalo.

                        Apparently not. Great unit,Great price, and Great locaton. This place is exactly as advertised, actually much better. The unit is clean, very comfortable, and includes everything you could possibly need. The views from the lanai are spectacular. The complex is nicely maintained and manicured. The people are friendly and social, yet it is a very quite and relaxing atmosphere. The location is perfect. You are basically in the middle of the island so everything is a short drive away. I spent weeks searching the internet for a place to stay on Maui. Believe me you will have a hard time finding anything much better than here. We are most definitely coming back to this unit. This is a 5 star location without the extra resort fees, parking fees, standing in line to check in, and all the hustle and bustle and crowds of the 5 star resorts on Kaanapali or Wailea. We arrived at the complex at 2:30pm, in the unit at 2:35pm and on the beach drinking a cocktail by 2:40 pm, are you kidding me!!

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1988

                      About the owner: We moved to Maui in 2003. My husband says 'because he was tired of removing the claw marks from the door when we had to leave and go home to California.' We love it here and enjoy sharing our favorite place with others, especially those seeing Maui for the first time.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nani Kai Hale:
                      In 1987 John was on Maui and visited friends staying at 'the Nani'. One look out of an ocean front unit and he was hooked. He went home to California and checked for sales of ocean front units once a month. A year later, #309 was up for sale and he said 'we'll take it.'

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      3 miles of walkable, white sandy beach right outside your door! Not only is the property 'direct ocean front', we have the unique opportunity for front row seating during whale season. Our bay is a favorite spot for whales and their calves from December through April every year.
