2br/2ba Condo In One Of West Maui's Highest Rated & Quietest Resorts

Aloha, and welcome to the virtual version of Lokelani C205, a vacation rental condo located on the beautiful West Maui coast. It's not the same as being there - hearing the ocean throughout your living space, seeing your 'morning whale' as you sip coffee on your lanai, or walking just a few feet outside to see honu (turtles) swimming and basking in the sun on your own stretch of beach. Regardless, we welcome you here as our guest just as we would be glad to welcome you into our Maui home.

Lokelani, which means “Beautiful Rose” in Hawaiian, is a West Maui vacation rental that truly lives up to its name. Snorkel with the turtles, watch whales & breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets from your two spacious lanais and fall asleep to the gentle sound of the Pacific in your oceanfront two bedroom town home-style condo.

Lokelani #C205 has been completely remodeled. It is a luxurious two bedroom/two bath unit with both the living room and master bedroom having direct ocean front lanais. This unit is a town home type unit with the kitchen, dining area, washer/dryer, full bath, living room and direct ocean front lanai downstairs. Upstairs you will find a full bath and both bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own direct ocean front lanai with panoramic views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai. A split air conditioning system with units in both bedrooms keeps you cool in the warmer months. Flat screen TV's and DVD players in living room and master bedroom entertain.

This unit is nicely equipped with everything except food and clothing. On the days you don't feel like dining out in one of the many great restaurants nearby, our kitchen has all the utensils, cookware, and dinnerware you'll need. You can watch the sunset while eating dinner out on the lanai, or if on the rarest of occasions the weather isn't perfect, there is also an inside dining table.

We are located just a few miles north of downtown Lahaina and historic Front Street. We are in a quiet residential neighborhood and we are off the main street to insure a peaceful stay. You will not want to leave our beautiful Maui home of Lokelani C205, but you'll definitely want to come back!

PS--. Please ask about our Lokelani C205 guests Discounts and Donations program supporting the Pacific Whale Foundation and Maui Food Bank.

About Kevin Wilshere

As a host, we will do everything we can to make sure our guests have a fantastic stay in Maui. We do not believe that our responsibility ends there, however. It is a privilege to own a home, especially in such a beautiful area of Maui, and with that comes (or should come) the responsibility to be a good citizen of the community. Rather than being an 'absentee landlord,' we want to participate in and give back to our ohana - our Hawaiian family.

So, from time-to-time, we will be promoting worthy causes and local artists on our site. We've already established a link to an organization that we have supported for many years, the Pacific Whale Foundation, as well as to the Maui Food Bank in Wailuku. These organizations make a difference in our community through their many efforts to preserve our ocean environment and help those in need. For more information on these organizations, please follow the links elsewhere on this site. Please also inquire about discounts and charitable matching that we will offer to those guests who may also be interested in supporting these causes.

In the mean time, Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) for your time and interest in visiting this page. Come visit again - Kipa hou mai!

Why Kevin Wilshere chose West Maui

Maui is a special place. On our first visit many years ago, we immediately knew that we had found us a home. Maybe not a year-round home, but a place so welcoming that returning after an absence makes you feel as though you'd never left. Maybe it's the weather, or the ocean views, lush interior landscapes, snow-topped Haleakala (yes, snow), or abundant sea life. Or the people. Of course, it's all of those. And more.

The memories: grabbing onto the tentpoles of a roadside food stand outside Hana as a blast of wind threatened to take the the whole thing away, while puppies ran and yipped around our feet; running into and chatting with the artist Wyland in a book shop, and being invited to the Christmas party at his Lahaina gallery that same evening; cooking tuna on a grill as the sun slipped below the horizon while I drank the best glass of wine of my life…

Why did we want to own property in Maui? Why would you not.

P.S., and full disclosure: the photo above was from our first Hawaiian trip (number redacted) years and many trips ago. Be aware, once you've spent any time here, you will want to come back again, and again, and again...

What makes this condo unique

It is hard not to find a beautiful spot in Maui. We favor the west side - not that there is anything wrong with the south, Hana or any other Maui locale. Some of our favorites include Napili Bay, dining beachside in Kaanapali, playing golf in Kapalua, and wandering Front Street in Lahaina. We encourage you to go to all of these places, and many others.

There is something different about Lokelani, though. There are larger resorts - in fact, probably few are smaller than Lokelani. Many have multiple pools, workout rooms, salons and built-in restaurants. If that's what you're looking for, we can make some recommendations. But if you want to get away from it all, live like a local, then Lokelani may be your place. You can easily get to the beaches of Kaanapali and elsewhere for a visit, but afterward (and before) you can relax on your own secluded beach, or in the comfort of your oceanfront lanai. Maybe - just, maybe - it's as good elsewhere, but it doesn't get any better than this...

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved this Condo! - 5 Star Rating.

We visited Maui in Feb 2011 - this is our first stay at the Lokelani. We have stayed in a lot of other condos in the same area on different trips. This condo was by far we the nicest yet. The views were spectacular. The Condo was clean and comfortable. The Office and Maintenance staff were very helpful and kind. The pool area sits behind the building next to parking lot. Not fabulous...but it was cool and comfortable. All other guests we encounter were friendly. Grounds quite at night.The best for me was the masterbed room-The bed and pillows were very comfortable. All you can hear is the ocean as it lulls you to sleep. We would definately come back!

Lovely condo and stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect fit for our family of four. Master bedroom was amazing with its own balcony to watch whales and stars. Condo has a pool which was nice if the wind picked up on the beach side. Some days the beach was mellow and perfect for snorkeling, other days the beach was perfect for boogie boarding. The condo was close to many amenities (coffee shop, public park, farmers market, good food). Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui! The wind and waves do vary quite a bit, sometimes from day to day. We had a lot of rain and uncertain weather 2 weeks ago, and the beach shrank some as a result. Lately the weather has been great! In all cases, there are many things to do on Maui and each day is what you make of it. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!

The view says it all!!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and my parents recently stayed in Kevin's condo in Maui in April 2017 and it was absolutely gorgeous! From the moment you walk into the Condo you are drawn to the amazing ocean views directly off the lanai. We spent the majority of our time while in the apartment on the lanai... watching surfers, paddle boarders, dozens of turtles, and even some whales in the distance! The apartment itself is lovely, the kitchen is modern and well stocked. The beds are very comfortable and as someone who is not used to the Maui heat I really appreciated the A/C in the bedrooms making for a pleasant sleep. The beach just beside the complex is beautiful and sandy, quite quiet and perfect for seeing a few turtles! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for your review! While it can often be very nice to fall asleep to the ocean sounds and breeze with the lanai doors open, that's not always for everyone - esp. those of us with occasional sleep issues. So, we have a/c as an option in both bedrooms, along with blackout blinds. We think this gives a good range of choices to satisfy almost everyone! We are very glad that you enjoyed your Maui vacation - come back soon!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind review! While the ocean breezes off our lanais are often enough to keep us cool, having air conditioning in the bedrooms can be a blessing - esp. in the summer months! Thank you for choosing to stay with us and come back soon!

Wonderful place to stay in paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time in this condo!! There is always that excitement mixed with trepidation for me when I arrive to experience what I have predetermined as my place to stay on vacation. Thorough online searching, good reviews, nice pictures, along with rapid friendly response from owner had me stoked to arrive. This condo exceeded expectations! We walked into paradise; amazing updated kitchen, tiled floor throughout condo, and the double lanai upstairs and down was to die for! Not to mention the feeling of having your own semi-private beach literally footsteps away, breath-taking. The environment there is low key and away from the feeling of a busy atmosphere. The sound of the ocean waves while sleeping at night were mesmerizing and hypnotic. Any needs or concerns that came up during our stay were quickly addressed and resolved. The owner obviously understands the meaning of stellar customer service. During our vacation my family and I built memories that will last forever. In fact, by the end of the vacation, it was depressing to leave because we each had accustomed to the feeling of having a home-away-from-home. Thank you so much for the positive experience and the opportunity of having available such a fun, high quality residence to stay in during our trip to paradise.

Perfect Location and Ideal Condo

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for our first couple-only trip to Hawaii after many trips with our children over twenty years. My husband says I should not be too honest about this condo and location because it would then be booked so frequently that we would never get a date to come back! I have to be honest anyway. This condo is right on an actual beach, perfect for swimming, excellent snorkeling (best is to the left, or south along the reef). On days it was chopping or rainy even just a few miles north of us at Kahana, the beach was sunny and pleasant. The unit was in excellent condition, nice and clean, recently updated, and the property was very well maintained. We love the Honokowai area for it's lowkey atmosphere and privacy, and yet it's only 10-15 minutes from top resorts, restaurants, and shopping going north or south. One cannot argue with the surf almost directly below your balcony and breezes every night, even when it is almost still in nearby Lahaina. Both bedrooms have efficient air conditioners to give a little cool down in the late afternoon. As I mentioned, we would definitely book this unit again on a return trip.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui for your generosity (and honesty!). Like you, we've sometimes worried about Honokowai being 'discovered', but I think the area's friendly character is secure. We plan to be around for a long time, so a hui kaua - until we meet again - we'll do our best to keep everything ready for your next visit! Aloha.

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this condo for our family vacation and it truly was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Kevin very responsive to our questions while searching for a location and then once we went ahead with the rental, he made the process very smooth and seamless. As it was our first time using VRBO we really appreciated the help and responsiveness of Kevin. The location is superb, being away from the busy tourist areas is a plus. It makes it very quiet and peaceful (only 10-15 minutes from Lahaina), so you almost feel as though you are on a secluded part of the island! Having the beach and waves rolling in right outside your windows and lanais is something we won't soon forget, absolute relaxation. Being on 2 levels, there was ample room for our family of 6, so we really appreciated being able to cook some of our meals in the kitchen. While we were there the weather was very warm and humidity levels were quite high, so having the AC in the two bedrooms was a huge benefit! We will most certainly be renting this property on our next trip to Maui (provided it is available of course).

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui for your kind words, and of course for choosing to stay with us for your Maui vacation. We may be a bit biased, but we do think our location combines the best of all things. We are a very small, quiet community, which works well for those who do not need nightclubs and lazy river pools on property - not that there's anything wrong with having either of those (I can be lazy on my lanai or the beach, though). When you want nightlife, it's just a short drive, or even walk, away. As for the condo, I think we may have replaced the fridge just after your stay, so you will see that and hopefully other upgrades on your next visit. E Kipa Mai - come visit, again!

Helpful Maui Travel Tips:

Jan 2015 - Plastic grocery bags are banned on Maui. Stick a couple of your reusable totes in your suitcase - they don't take up any space, and they're also great for carrying toys and supplies down to the beach!

July 2015 - We have just completed a significant upgrade to both bedrooms! New beds, mattresses, dressers, window treatments and more! Pictures will be updated on this site shortly - come back and check out our new look!

January 2016 - By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans, study says. http://wapo.st/1S3QAin. I don't know if this study's prediction is correct, but I do know we can all do our part prevent this outcome. Please help keep our environment clean and marine life safe for future generations. Mahalo!

February 2016 - We keep a supply of various nonperishable condiments (salt, pepper, some oils and other spices, etc) in the condo for your use. We cannot guarantee exactly what will be there for your trip, but recommend you check out our supply before finalizing your island grocery list. Also, a mile north of us in the shopping plaza housing Maui Brewing Co, is a drop box for Maui Food Bank. You can drop off any non-perishable items you won't finish there and help Maui's hungry. Mahalo!

March 2016 - and speaking of grocery shopping, everyone does it after 5pm - locals coming off work as well as newly arrived visitors. If you want to avoid long grocery lines, leave your shopping to the morning after your arrival. You can stop at the ABC store near our location for a few essential beverages and other items... Of course, if you do end up in a line, just remember that you're on island time anyway! Enjoy the aloha!!

Come back for more tips later!
