Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath

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 a million dollar ocean view (and 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 and I 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.

About Kristin Mihelic

I'm Kristin, and I first visited Hale Ono Loa in 2009. I've traveled all over, but it's true what they say, that once you've been to Maui you never want to go anywhere else. Maui is blessed with stunning diversity, and West Maui is distinct with its tropical foliage and world famous beaches. When you're here, it's really about a state of mind and serenity that few vacation destinations can offer. You can be as active as you like, or do nothing at all, either way it will be the time of your life.

Kristin Mihelic purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kristin Mihelic chose Lahaina

I wanted to be away from the crowds of the larger resort communities. Staying at Hale Ono Loa, I often have the beach just to myself. At the same time, I am just minutes away from great restaurants and nightlife.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite aspect is the snorkeling on our reef just yards away. We have two gorgeous sundecks and seawall that are pretty much in the middle of the ocean. There's a set of stairs that takes you right down to the reef for snorkeling and swimming with the turtles. Also, my lanai is beautiful, especially during whale season. From my lanai, you can see whales breeching during the season.

Cute ondo, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at this property. It was well kept, clean and close to everything. The sun deck and the lana’i where favorites during our visit. The notes provided by our host were very helpful - sending us to yummy restaurants, great local coffee and beaches. You won’t be disappointed.

Oven views and priced right

  • 4 of 5

Clean condo with a nice oven view. We chose this location because of how close it is to Lahaina but far enough from all the tourism. Did not disappoint!

Great location, great landlord. A outstanding experience. We loved it and will be going back.

  • 5 of 5

There are three reasons you should consider this rental: (1) Location. (2) Location. (3) Location. The condo property is right on ocean. We were able to watch whales from our lenai, and the sunsets were outstanding. If you love the sound of the surf, this place will work for you.

The unit is a little older than some and could use some very minor decorating, like some paint and a new curtain. But it was very neat, clean and well stocked with everything you will need. Kristin is a wonderful host. We are planning a return trip for next year.

We liked to take the short 10 min. drive south to Kaanappali Beach, one of the best beaches on Maui. Avoid all the hotels and Whalers Village where the parking is very expensive. At the south end of the beach, next to the Hyatt Hotel is Hanakaoo Beach, parking is free and you have access to the great beach for free. All the beaches are public, and it a great place to take a walk, about one hour from end to end. At the North end of you walk, on the water at the Sheraton Hotel, stop at the Cliff Dive Grill for the best Mahi Mahi. Wonderful!!!

If you go downtown Lahaina, go in the morning before it gets to busy. Just two blocks South on the main drag from all the action is a large FREE parking lot. All other parking is very expensive. Try the Down The Hatch restaurant while downtown. The grilled cheese, lobster, crab sandwich is outstanding. The Lava Lava shrimp is a great starter, and a coupon for a free one is in the This Week Maui magazine.

A short drive North of the condo is Flemming Beach which we liked. Another 20 mins and you can go to the Nakalele point and blow hole. A nice hike. Do NOT keep driving past the blow hole to drive around the island unless you like 20 miles of turns, twists, and meeting oncoming traffic on a narrow, single lane road.

This property is a great value, and did I say we loved our week there. I highly recommend this unit.
