Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


Reef-surfing sea turtles, spectacular sunsets, all the colors of the ocean and the rustle of palms overhead ... Those are just a few of the daily sights and sounds you'll enjoy in this top floor, oceanfront condo located halfway between the resort communities of Kaanapali and Kapalua.

Recently remodeled, the condo offers travertine tiled floors, tropical furnishings, mahogany and granite kitchen with stainless appliances, walk-in shower and ample storage. Clever sliding plantation doors between the bedroom and living area can be closed for maximum privacy or left open so that you can watch the rising sun set the palms aglow outside.

Whales Ahoy!

Between November and April our guests get to enjoy the spectacular sight of the annual Humpback Whale migration. These awesome creatures come to Maui from Alaska every year to give birth and one of their favorite locations to do so is right out front of the condo in the wide channel between West Maui and the island of Lanai and Molokai. In the peak months (Jan - March), we can count on seeing dozens of whales an hour without leaving the condo!

Hale Ono Loa is a mid-century, low-rise condo complex that underwent a complete exterior renovation in 2010. Guests are able to enjoy a shared pool surrounded by palms, access to the ocean, sundecks at both pool level and alongside the ocean and beautiful tropical gardens filled with fragrant colorful blooms all year long. There's off-street parking, shared gas BBQs, shuffle board court and an interesting mix of full-time residents and vacationing visitors. Each condo is individually owned and independently rented, providing a low-key, peaceful alternative to the brand-name 'resort' experience.

About The Owner

We love to swim, snorkel and scuba dive so Hawaii has been a favorite vacation destination for years. When we came to stay at Hale Ono Loa in West Maui in January 2007, we just knew it was the place for us. It's conveniently close to Lahaina and golfing at Kapalua or Kaanapali and BEST of all, it's right on the ocean. We can fall asleep listening to waves and wake up to surfing sea turtles.

When the Pacific Northwest is winter-dreary there's no better place than the lushly landscaped gardens around the condo and the azure blue sea right out front! We hope you'll consider staying in this place we love so much. Aloha! Vanessa & Greg

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose West Maui

There's just so much we enjoy about Hale Ono Loa. We love the reefs out front which fill with green sea turtles when the tide is high and always guarantee colorful fish when we're snorkeling. The ocean-side sundecks offer comfortable lounges for sunning or shady retreats for watching the whales. A thrice-weekly Farmers' Market is just a couple minute's walk down the street and it's only another short stroll to the head of the boardwalk which continues nearly 5 miles through the entire Kaanapali Resort area.

What makes this condo unique

We tried to anticipate our guests' every need and desire when appointing our condo. From the 'Heavenly Bed' king size mattress on a romantic sleigh bed to a fully equipped kitchen; comfort, ease and privacy are what we hope our guests enjoy when staying with us.

Pack your lunch in one of the coolers and head out to the many wonderful nearby beaches. You'll find beach chairs, sun umbrella, mats and some toys stored on the lanai. Come home and shower off the day's activities in the travertine-tiled bath before slipping one of the Hawaiian music CDs in the entertainment center and watching the sun set from the comfortably-furnished lanai.

Does dinner in sound like a good idea tonight? Why not pick up a piece of ahi from the Fish Market and grill it up on the pool-side BBQ. Listen to the palms rustle overhead and plan tomorrow's adventures with the guide books we've provided.


Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in your well-appointed condo! The views were spectacular -- waves, turtles, whales, ships, etc... We cooked most of our meals and your kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed. (note to readers: a Safeway card is a MUST for better grocery prices. We saved a great deal of money using it in 4 weeks). Thank you for making your condo available to us. We'll be back!

Beautiful location. Loved the balcony and being able to spot sea turtles in the water.

  • 5 of 5

Vanessa was very easy to work with and very accommodating.

Beautiful condo setting. Central to everything that we needed. Kitchen was updated and put to good use. Condo was comfortable and well decorated. It was the perfect place to go back to and relax after spending the day at the beach snorkeling. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Beautiful Views & Clean and Cozy Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This unit was incredibly comfortable, cozy, clean and had some really lovely views from the lanai. We had access to the pool and BBQ area which we used frequently and the host was very responsive and welcoming.

This property is a Jewel!!

  • 5 of 5

I was so conflicted about writing Vanessa's place because we want to keep it a secret, that's how amazing she and her unit were!! Everything was PERFECT!! The location is a slice of heaven, we did not want to leave at all ::( We have already booked for next March, that is the only way we could go home without sobbing at leaving it!!!

Wonderful Stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this condo and it's everything "as advertised" and more! While we stayed in unit #407, my brother and his wife stayed in the other unit (#207) and enjoyed it also! We were very pleased with the nice furnishings, cleanliness and the little extras in the rooms to make our stay more comfortable (beach gear (including chairs, umbrellas, large beach towels), a cooler, blow dryers, plenty of extra towels, washcloths, a fully equipped kitchen including spices, etc.). Also, we were most pleased with the promptness of Vanessa's replies. Oh, and one other thing, it was so wonderful listening to the waves each night and enjoying the beautiful ocean-front views during the day. We spotted several whales and turtles while there just sitting on the lanai. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of these condos to my friends that may vacation here in the future.
