Welcome to another great MAUI FOOTPRINTS property (Kaleialoha 403).

SUNSETS, BEACH, OCEAN, TRANQUIL, COZY, WHALES, BEST VALUE

If this is what you are looking for...Welcome to MAUI PARADISE CONDO 2!

Location, location, location! 20 feet to the ocean, no walking around buildings, no busy streets to cross...you are staying right on the ocean. 5 minutes south to the world-famous Ka'anapali Beach and Ka'anapali Golf Course, walking distance to Honokowai shopping center and fun farmers market, and 10 minutes north to Kapalua resorts.

This is a mountain-view unit. There is an amazing 180-degree view of the ocean from the ocean side of the resort. Only four stories high, our property is relatively quiet, set away from all of the high-rise resorts and condominiums, and nothing sits between the resort and the ocean. Besides being 5 minutes away from world-famous beaches, we also have our own small sandy beach cove that is just to the left of our BBQ area. There is a nice sandy entrance into the water and you will usually find the current in this area quite calm for easy swimming. Enjoy the private snorkeling area right in front of your condo! Explore the incredibly clear waters of the Pacific Ocean where colorful TROPICAL FISH AND SEA TURTLES play. Be sure to enjoy all of the wonderful nearby restaurants, or you may just want a nice relaxing dinner at home. You can BBQ on the OCEAN FRONT and listen to the soothing waves.

Beaches: Maui is known for its beaches, and there are many close to this resort. Beach towels are provided. The closest big beach is Airport Beach, less than a 10-minute drive south.There are bathrooms and a nice big parking lot. Ka'anapali Beach is just a bit farther at Whalers Village. Parking is available in the lot; walk through the shopping area to the beach, just past the Hula Grill. Whaler's Village is also popular for shopping and dining, so kick back with a drink and a 'pupu' (appetizer) after your day in the sun.

Whales! Whales! Whales! During the season, watch the Humpback Whale shows right from the front deck, as the adult whales teach their babies how to jump and play. No need to even go on a boat to watch for whales. This mountain-view condo has been popular for many years and has many happy, returning annual guests. Our unit has air conditioning and its own washer and dryer for your added convenience. Wifi Internet connectivity is complimentary in this suite.

Words cannot describe what it is like watching breathtaking sunsets from the front deck on the beautiful West Maui OCEAN EDGE. During the year, the sunsets move back and forth between the islands of LANAI and MOLOKAI. Kaleialoha has the perfect combination of the best privacy, stunning views and soothing ocean sounds on the famous West Maui coast.

NO SMOKING AND NO PETS!

Exactly as advertised, and more!

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a great location, has amazing amenities, and is one of the cleanest facilities I've ever experienced. I was so relieved after hours of travel to reach the condo and see how nice and well maintained the property is. The building is meticulously kept with maintenance and grounds people working to keep it that way every day. The view is fantastic and the pool is gorgeous. We were thrilled with everything about this condo and would absolutely recommend it to anyone. I have nothing but good things to say about it. Also the BBQ amenities were outstanding. We grilled out all the time!

Good value

  • 3 of 5

This property could use some work but it is good value for the price. The kitchen counter has cracked tiles and the grout is very dirty. On the other hand, the stove and fridge are new and the dishwasher is whisper quiet. There is wall to wall carpet except for the kitchen and bathroom. The carpet appears old and stained in places. The bed is extremely comfortable, the TV is good with lots of channels. The wifi works most of the time. The building is from 1975 and the wiring inside the building seems to be an issue for the internet connection during hours of heavy use. The telecom company can't do anything about this.

The property manager is extremely responsive to concerns. When I arrived, there were 2 can openers that didn't work and no baking dishes in the kitchen. These were provided the same day. The area under the bed had not been vacuumed - I found an old hair elastic under there. The upright vacuum does not fit under the bed - I tried to vacuum it myself.

The building is well-maintained including the pool. The lounging area around the back facing the ocean is great for watching the sunset. Although this unit has a tiny balcony, I found the traffic noise from the road did not make it enjoyable to sit there, so I went around to the ocean side.

Honokawai gets more rain than Kihei but it has a nice neighbourhood feel whereas Kihei feels like a strip mall. However there are 4 beaches with lifeguards on the Kihei side of the island. When high winds come up, swimming can be dangerous in the Honokawai area and yet be safe in the Kihei area.

There is a bus stop almost in front of the property if you don't want to rent a car. The Farmers Market is within walking distance and I also walked to the Times Supermarket which is a bit farther. If you do rent a car, the Safeway at the Cannery Mall is the best source of everything including organic and alternative types of items.

Overall this condo is comfortable and in a good location. It is good value for the money but not as "updated" as described. If the owner changed the carpet and the kitchen counter top, I would give it a higher rating.

Owner's Response: We would like to sincerely thank this guest for taking the time to post a review of their experience staying at our property. Our guests' satisfaction is very important to us. We are so happy to hear that this guest generally found the amenities in this unit up to their expectations with the exception of the kitchen countertop grout and carpet. We do have a professional cleaning service that cleans the unit between each and every check-in / checkout and also have the carpets professionally cleaned on a regular basis. The kitchen is well equipped with cookware, dishes, glass mixing bowls, etc. This guest did request some alternative additional items such as a casserole dish and a metal mixing bowl, which were delivered the same day as the request. As always, we appreciate our guests' input as it helps us to keep our unit up to the standards we strive to provide.

Great Value and Location for Maui - Ocean Waves Lull You to Sleep

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I visited Maui for the first time with our 2 year old and had an amazing time! We were very pleased with this condo and felt the photos and description were accurate. The bedroom has a quality mattress and bed with a fan overhead to keep you cool. The window has a fabulous view of the ocean where you can watch the sunset and it allows you to hear the sound of ocean waves crashing against the rocks as you sleep. Dresser and closet provides ample space for storing clothing and such. This condo came with a pack n' play which is great because our daughter slept soundly on this.

The bathroom is very clean and the shower has great water pressure. No complaints at all about the bathroom. The owners have thought of everything by providing hairdryer, nail polish remover, shampoo, conditioner, etc. Towels were provided along with extra towels under the sink. There are also beach towels in the condo, along with a beach mat, 2 beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, an umbrella and more. Very thoughtful of the owners!

The kitchen is spacious and pots, pans, knives, dishes, utensils are provided. Dishwasher works well. Small ants are very common in the area of Maui so be careful to not leave any food or crumbs out that might attract ants. We were careful to wipe the countertops clean after seeing some ants the second day.

The living room is spacious and has lots of natural light from the huge windows overlooking Parking Lot A with a view of the mountains in the background. No problem with noise at all. The curtains can be drawn, but the sliding glass doors allow a nice breeze through. The TV has cable so you can channel surf away. The wireless internet was smooth and we didn't have any problems once we were connected. A relaxing condo offering everything you would need at home.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

great for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed pretty much whole August in this condo and that was fabulous! We stayed on mountain side but looking nice wide view of mountain was also spectacular. There is a small swimming pool attached to the condo so it also gives great opportunity to kids enjoying the stay. Like it says, everyday sunset is gorgeous and many times, kids enjoyed meeting with turtles just in front of condos. My family stayed more than 20 days but trully thought that staying this condo is just much better than staying hotels. It simply gives you just right feeling to spend long vacations!

We did not use air conditioning even once because breeze was just comfortable.

Map

Car: necessary

Golf: There are plenty of golf courses on Maui. Kapalua (3 courses) , Ka'anapali (2 courses) , Wailea (3 courses) to name a few resort courses. You can call them for fees and tee times. A good public course is Sandalwood in Waikapu (the other side of the West Maui Mountains) . Another is The Dunes at Maui Lani 873 0422. The Dunes is a links style of course and can be tough, but still a lot of fun. If you didn't bring your clubs, do NOT rent at the courses. I made that mistake once to the tune of $50 for the day. West Maui Sports and Fishing Supply on Front Street in Lahaina has very reasonable day and weekly rentals. Note: The rental manager is affiliated with Maui Lodging Properties, LLC (a rental management company) in the State of Hawaii
