  • Could not have asked for more!

    "'Piece of Heaven Oceanfront' was the perfect name for this lovely one bedroom condo. The views from the combo dining/living room and the lanai were breathtaking. Just a few feet from the ocean with no other buildings to obstruct the view. Small but ample kitchen had most everything one would need including a full size refrigerator. A nice size sofa that converts to a bed (on which, for one night, my daughter, 23 year old, was too tired to open but was comfortable enough to sleep on it as is) graced the living area facing the side window that looks up the beach towards Lahaina. The lanai had a table and chairs plus two higher seats and a clear view out to the ocean and the island of Molokai. One day we had a spectacular view of whales breaching and tail slapping. Although seen with the naked eye, our binoculars made it even better. Daily morning visits by sea turtles was another treat. And the ability to swim/snorkel with them will be a long lasting memory. The king size bed in the small but ample bedroom was by far the most comfortable bed we slept in, ever! The overhead fan was all we needed along with keeping the screened windows open in the living room to keep us cool. Could hear the sound of the ocean throughout the night and just a little traffic sounds. All the linens and towels were of great quality. Since I like to lap swim, I can not say enough about the very large out door pool in the center of the condo complex. The temperature was comfortable and seeing the palms around me, just delightful. The grounds on this site are wonderful and varied. Felt very comfortable amongst the other guests, property owners, and timeshare owners. Eileen, our host and owner, was top notch in her communications! I recommend her condo wholeheartedly!"

  • Perfect Condo in Paradise

    "We recently stayed at this Ekahi condo and I can not say enough about this condo and about Ekahi in general. The condo is on the greenbelt (which is where you want to be), is a short walk to the beach and has the most breath taking ocean view I have ever seen. The condo is remodelled and updated with everything you want. The condo was spotless on our arrival! The owner, Tracy, was fabulous to deal with. She checked in with us after we arrived and answered any questions we had very promptly. We can not wait to return!"

  • Perfection!

    "The condo was the perfect place to stay! Our party of two couples could not have asked for a better stay. If you are thinking of staying in a condo with beach views, stay here! The view is outstanding, we saw beautiful sunsets, whales, and rainbows everyday. The kitchen is well stocked with every dish and gadget you could need for cooking at home. We loved this, as we did not want to leave the view of the ocean. The house is really close to the St. Regis, we walked there for a spa day. This would also be great for a nice dinner or drinks at their bar, as they have wonderful views as well. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms updated. The master shower was amazing! The only thing I would mention is that the master bedroom has louvered doors, so if you have kiddos sleeping in the living room or if you have guests you may be able to hear them. The beds and the sheets were perfect, we slept so good with the ocean crashing below. We heard that someone thought that the ocean was too loud. I totally disagree, it lulled us right to sleep every night. Loved the washer/dryer in the unit. We washed and dried lots of beach towels as we were snorkeling and swimming everyday, next time won't pack as much! We are already planning our next trip back! Aloha!"

  • Our Second Stay in the Leeward Condo

    "My wife and I spent two weeks in the Leeward Condo and enjoyed our stay. Our daughter lives nearby so location was our main reason for staying at Haiku Makai. Max and Tracey treat us more like friends than customers. Max brought by fresh bananas and citrus fruit almost daily. Buttercup is the official welcome "person" for the property. We are dog people so it was nice to have her greet us and be there occasionally at our door. This was our second stay in the Leeward Condo. We found it to be comfortable. Other posters have talked about the geckos and you should be prepared to see the little guys once in a while. They are harmless but they can startle you so awareness is paramount. This condo is what you should expect for an upcountry rental. The facilities are dated but functional. The appliances work and the coffee is hot. Our only recommend would be to add an inexpensive dinner service for four and a few more cups and glasses. I did not mention this to Max or Tracey so it may well be .... all I had to do was ask. I give them the benefit of the doubt because I see them as trying hard to please their customers... trying hard to make new friends! This is a quiet and peaceful place on a back road near Haiku. It is not in the hustle and bustle of touristy Maui. It is your get-away from that scene. It allows you to relax and enjoy the ocean view. Mahalo and Aloha!"

Hawaii Travel Tips

The eight islands collectively known as Hawaii offer abundant opportunities for surf, sun and scenic beauty. Here are the top things to do in Hawaii among the four most popular islands for visitors:

Hawaii

Also known as “The Big Island” to prevent confusion, the island of Hawaii is the largest in the chain. Here are the must-see and dos:

- Drive to Hilo off of Highway 220 and take a short hike through Akaka Falls State Park to see both Kahuna and Akaka falls, which are gorgeous.

- Take a guided tour of wild, verdant Waipio Valley. You’ll see the Kaluahine Waterfalls, which rush down a nearby cliff and into the ocean, as well as lush greenery at every turn. Go on a horseback riding tour with Na’alapa Stables or take a rough-riding tour on your own ATV with Ride the Rim.

- Check out the well-known Hilo Farmers Market to taste and purchase some of the best local Hawaiian goods: seafood, produce, clothing and crafts. It’s open every day, but the most popular days are Wednesday and Saturday. You’ll find everything from pineapples to bongo drums sold by more than 100 vendors here.

- Hit the legendary beaches. Some of the most beautiful are Papakolea Beach - it’s challenging to get to, but is one of the only beaches with olive green-colored sand in the U.S. - and Hapuna Beach State Park. Don’t miss a trip to the more remote Kealakekua Bay on the west side for excellent snorkeling and views of Spinner dolphins and sea turtles.

- Take a stroll in Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park for a dose of Hawaiian history in the form of detailed ki’i wood carvings and temples. You’ll also spot Honu’s here, which are Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Maui

Maui is known for its luxurious Pacific beauty. Here are the top places to see on this island:

- Catch the sunrise at the volcanic crater in Haleakala National Park. It’s a 30-minute drive from base to crater and early mornings here are cold, but the views are amazing.

- Don’t miss the Old Lahaina Luau - supposedly one of the best and most traditional in the state. The Lahaina Luau lasts three hours, accompanied by dancing, roasted pork, lomi lomi salmon and mashed taro.

- If you’re staying in Kahului, a popular Maui city, take a scenic 55-mile drive to Hana. Pack a picnic and stop along the way - this stunning winding drive over lush hills high above the ocean is well worth a slow trip.

- Nothing looks crazier than the Kaihalulu Beach in Hana. The exotic red sand beach, towering trees and deep turquoise water provides a seascape like nothing you’ve seen before.

- Check out the world’s largest dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park. It will take you two hours to reach the summit, but there are many scenic overlooks along the way. Hike popular Pipiwai trail - a four-mile stretch around the Seven Sacred Pools of Oheo Gulch, where you can stop for a relaxing swim near tiny waterfalls.

Kauai

Here are some of the best things to do on this pretty island, which is the farthest land north and west of the chain:

- Visit the magnificent and breathtaking Na Pali Coast, where sharp cliffs of varying heights jut into the sky, creating an other-worldly effect near the ocean. One of the best ways to see Na Pali is via helicopter tour from Sunshine Helicopters, which also takes you over the vibrant green Waimea Canyon.

- If you’re an experienced hiker, dare yourself to take the 11-mile muddy and rocky hike on Kalalau Trail for an unparalleled view of Na Pali.

- Hit the links at Poipu Bay Golf Course. See if you can keep your mind on the game while surrounded by acres of tropical beauty, ocean views and even cute creatures, like the turtles, monk seals and geese that often hang out on the greens.

- Lounge on the beaches. The locals hang out at a relatively calm beach called Kalapaki, but there’s also Po’ipu, Lumahai and Hanakapi’ai beaches that are perfect for sunbathing.

- See the Kilauea Lighthouse on the northernmost point, not far from the National Wildlife Refuge.

- Take surf or stand-up paddleboard lessons at the Hamilton School of Surfing or rent kayaks, boogie boards and pedal boats from Hanalei River Watersports on the Hanalei Bay.

Oahu

Oahu is the most populous Hawaiian island and home to Honolulu. Here are the best things to do here:

- Head to world-famous Waikiki and Sunset beaches and Waimea Bay to sunbathe and watch surfers. Sprawling Kailua Beach Park is perfect for families. You can watch windsurfers with colorful kites, swim in the cerulean waters or have a picnic on the sand.

- Go hiking at Diamond Head, a 300,000 year-old crater created by one massive volcanic eruption. The best time to go is in the early morning when the temperatures are cooler.

- Visit the lovely Honolulu Museum of Art to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s Maui landscape paintings, an excellent collection of Asian art and even some works by Picasso and van Gogh.

- Pay homage at the Pearl Harbor and U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. It’s located where the famous invasion took place in 1941, you can even ride with a U.S. Navy boat to see the memorial up close and pay your respects.

- Check out ‘Iolani Palace, which once belonged to King Kalakaua and his sister Queen Liliuokalani. It’s an interesting sight as it stands out next to other Hawaiian architecture.
