Mahalo for choosing Maui and considering this special place of ours at Hale Kai O'Kihei [HKOK], the House by the Ocean in Kihei. You are invited to our Deluxe unit to enjoy your vacation with a million-dollar view from our lanai front row center in the Pacific Theater.

Repeat visitors to HKOK term these Maui Condos as their home away from home. They are three story affordable beachfront condos. Ours has full kitchen and a private lanai from where you will watch humpback whales in season, porpoise, green sea turtles, pristine surf and the magnificent Maui sunsets.

The small bay is protected from large waves by a reef. With immediate access to the sandy beach you can stroll along in either direction or swim from the shallow beach adjacent to the property. A Swimming pool, gas barbecues [2] and shuffle board ensure entertainment for all ages. Numerous shops including a major supermarket, bank, drugstore, pharmacy, post office, church, gym and restaurants are in walking distance. Surfing, wind- and kitesurfing, snorkeling, hiking, competition-length swimming pool, golf courses, tennis courts, movie theaters, public library, world class beaches and malls are within easy reach by car.

HKOK is located in South Maui approximately 20 minutes from Kahului airport [OGG].

About Rental Manager

Aloha. We, Gina & Joe, have traveled the globe and been to some 57 countries, and it was in 1992 that we discovered Maui. Two years later we purchased this special place of ours. While Gina was attending airline passengers around the world, Joe served on the HKOK Association Board of Directors [two terms] and filled in as Resident Mgr. Usually, we spend about three months a year on property together with our children [4] and grandchildren [3]. We are pleased to share this piece of paradise with you.

Kipa hou mai - Come visit again. Maui no ka ’oi - Maui is the best. Mahalo nui loa - Thank you very much.

Rental Manager purchased this condo in 1994

Good location , great view

  • 2 of 5

The view from the lanai was great the beach access was perfect . The room

was a little more dated than the pictures appear , it did however have everything that was needed . That being said when we first arrived we (I) had to kill multiple bugs in the entry , bedroom, even on the bed . When we sent a message to first book the room we explained that our flight didn't leave until 10 in the evening and wanted a late check out . We were told that shouldn't be an issue as long as no one else booked in right after us .We would have to call close to end of the trip . So, with two days left we called only to be told no late check out at all because emergency maintainence had been scheduled after we left , WE DIDNT CALL WITH ANY ISSUES. So before we arrived this issue was known , and they knew we wanted to check out late and had no emergency letting us rent the place for a week but it couldn't wait a few hours once we leave ? So we wasted most of our afternoon on the second last day trying to find a place to stay ,as what we were lead to believe wasn't actually true .

I definitely would choose the location again but would probably pick a different unit and confirm exact check out times beforehand. To sum up the building , location , beach and view are 5 star , the room maybe 3.5 stars and the management (AAoceanfront) i'd be generous to give 2 stars .

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for your input. Good to hear that you found everything you were looking for including the great views, but sorry that the late check-out didn't materialize. The pictures were taken about a year and a half ago which might explain your remarks. Hope to see you again one of these days in Paradise. Mahalo Joe & Gina

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I'd go back in a heartbeat. This condo was the perfect midway point to many of Maui's must see sights. Just a 5-9 min. drive south are great surf lesson schools, good food and sightseeing tour pick-up points. I went running in the mornings, and enjoyed evening strolls w/my husband on the almost private beach. You wake-up to the peaceful sounds of the ocean and being on the third floor, all you see are palm trees, beach and ocean - it's your own private paradise.

Perfect and Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This charming little unit is truly a hidden gem. Extremely well kept and has all the amenities you would need. The view is a.m.a.z.i.n.g! Take an afternoon nap listening to the ocean just a few feet away from you, watch the sunset from the lanai, or just gaze at the stars and moon shining down on the ocean.. you name it! The beach kinda feels like a private beach just for the complex! The apartment complex is very clean, quite, and well organized. Located in a quiet neighborhood but still close to shopping. All at a very good price. We will come back to this unit again and definitely recommend this to a friend. Great customer service!

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate your kind remarks. We couldn't agree with you more as your comments describe perfectly as to why we have made this piece of paradise our home away from home for some 20 years in a row - up to 3-6 months each. Come visit again. As well, your friends are most welcome to enjoy the favorite place under the rainbow. Hale Kai O'Kihei no ka 'oi. Mahalo nui loa. Joe & Gina.
