About Betty Jansen

The Hulapalm is owned and operated by the Jansen Ohana. We are a Maui family and have been here for many years. Betty was born on Oahu and grew up on Maui. George's family moved to Maui when he was 11. We met at the Kamaole III beach park at a sunset birthday party 18 years ago and have been together ever since. We are now raising two kids of our own here in Kihei. We love the quality of life here and we strive to provide you with the best accommodations to make sure you have a wonderful stay during your time on Maui.

Betty Jansen purchased this condo in 2004

Why Betty Jansen chose Kihei

The Island Surf building is a landmark in Kihei. It is located across from the infamous Cove park. The Cove has a lovely beach and is a great place for surfing and water sports. Built in 1973 the Island Surf has been very well maintained. It has elevators and plenty of parking. There is also a nice pool and BBQ area located on the same floor just down the hall from the Hulapalm. For your convenience the ground floor of the building is filled with shops such as scuba, surfing, salon, dinning, bikes, and more. The location for vacation necessities such as coffee, grocery shopping, restaurants, dancing, bars, and more are all within a few minutes walk. Across the street is Kalama park offering beautiful walks, runs, or bike rides along the ocean front. There are public tennis courts, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, and even an ocean front skating rink. If you are so inclined you could easily take a cab, shuttle, or the Maui Bus to the Hulapalm from the airport and not need a rental car. Most everything you need is within walking distance and the Bus system can provide transportation to most attactions on the island. Within minutes of The Hulapalm you can find all you need to create your perfect Maui vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The Hulapalm is a wonderful place to spend a vacation. The unit has many comforts and conveniences. The layout is very spacious for two. The front lanai is a great spot to check the surf, whale watch, people watch, or take in the sunset. The kitchen is fully equipped with new kitchen appliances, stove, refrigerator, microwave, table, coffeemaker, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The king bed is very comfortable and relaxing. The unit itself is very cool, quite, and private. We take great care to keep the unit clean and well maintained for our guests.

Likes : convenient location, partial view of ocean while sitting on couch. Bedroom opposite main road, comfortable bed, elevator available , ample parking, great shower pressure, air conditioning except for bedroom, quiet evenings in the building.

In summary we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our condo. Many condos are located across from the coastal road and beaches from south kihei road. The unit has a lovely partial ocean view. We have done some remodeling to the unit. The shower has black grouting, not mold. Aloha from the Valley Isle

local vibe and comfy bed

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to get a more local vibe. It's not a fancy place if that is what you are looking for, but it cute, clean and the bed is comfy. The beach is across the street, which you can see right from lanai. There is a bike rental company in the building and a surf school right next door. Tons of highly rated restaurants and even a couple local bars are walkable.

Betty was super responsive and accommodating.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Betty and George's Kehei condo. The location was perfect, the amenities were great, lot's of local eating places and shopping (Kehei Café for breakfast is a must!). It was just so nice to be right on the beach, and close to everything we wanted to do. Having a washer and drier was a plus. Can't wait to go back!

Affordable with Easy Access to Everything

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with ease, coming and going as we liked, right across from the ocean, with a view of its waves from our front room. Everything worked and was clean.

Nice condo if you like being close to all the action

  • 3 of 5

PROS: The condo itself was really nice and clean, new appliances, really comfy bed, owner was easy to communicate with and even left us a gift of coffee and cookies when we arrived, which was a very nice touch, beautiful view.

CONS: really loud and busy area, no privacy on the lanai because it is facing the street, no cross breeze through the condo due to layout, oceanfront across from condo was not good for swimming (beach within 10 min walk).

Overall if you like being part of the action, this condo is great. If you're looking for quiet and private, you may not love the location.
