Why Wendy Hibbs chose Honokowai
Terry and Wendy Hibbs grew up in the small mountain town of Salida, Colorado. Their first visit to Hawaii was on their honeymoon, and they've been coming back ever since. Their dream of owning property on Maui was finally realized in 2009 when they bought their personal condo at the Hale Ono Loa complex. They fell in love with the location and the community, and in 2013 undertook the venture of purchasing another condo as a vacation rental property. They are still currently living in Salida, but whenever they want to escape the wintry mountains of Colorado, they can be found on Maui, enjoying their own little piece of island paradise!
What makes this Condo unique
The Hale Ono Loa complex first grabbed Terry & Wendy's eye on one of their vacation trips to Maui with their family. It was located in such a quaint, quiet little area, it gave them the feeling of home. The beautiful ocean view and the gentle crashing of the waves on the shore contributed to the serene, peaceful escape they sought when visiting Hawaii. The convenient location of the property to multiple beaches, various local amenities, and the island town of Lahaina sealed the deal for them, and is what makes this property so ideal for everyone's dream island vacation!

Nice Place on the North Side of the Island
Overall it was a comfortable stay. Wendy was very helpful and prompt in her communications. The turtles were fun to watch from the rail, just wish there was easier beach access. Close to a lot of things if you don’t mind driving, fewer options on foot. All in all, it was a good stay, thanks for having us!
Yes, the only down fall is no beach. I agree, but I do love the sea turtles and never get tired of watching them. And when waves are calm it is fun to snorkel there with them. To get to a great sandy beach it is only a 5 minute drive in either direction. On very rare occasions for some odd reason we end up with sand there! Don't understand how, but it has happened. You just never know when it will be. We have had our places there 9 years and I've only got to see if happen once.
Anyway hope you will come back and stay your next time in Maui,
Great location and condo!
Thank you for your hospitality- we had a great time at the condo! It was clean and comfortable and located in Lahaina which is close to beautiful beaches, including a small one within walking distance. We were even able to check-in a few hours early. We loved being next to the pool for our kids and enjoyed the peaceful and quiet patio. The property is oceanfront against a wall so we were not able to swim, but it was an amazing place to look out on the ocean and watch crabs, fish and especially sea turtles! We definitely recommend this condo for a great time in Maui!
Yes, the turtles are amazing and make up for not being able to have a sandy beach. When the waves are calm and tide is low it is a great place to snorkel, which is usually the summer months. Winter time that wall just gets slammed. I'm glad the condo was comfortable and clean to your satisfaction, my cleaning company is awesome and I couldn't do this without them. So please come back anytime, it would be great to have you.
Wonderful Location - Comfortable and well appointed!
Very comfortable, airy and efficiently designed condo. Location on the ground floor was perfect! Great building location on the west side of Maui. The condo is nicely furnished with all the details included (kitchen equipment and utensils/bath and bed linens/lanai furniture, cable, etc.) A bonus for us was the up-close viewing of many sea turtles grazing in the water directly in front of the building or hauled up on nearby sand! Will definitely consider staying again when on the Lahaina side. Mahalo for your hospitality!
Aloha Pat & Bob,
Thank you for coming and staying with me. I appreciate the nice words. I strive to make my guests stay as comfortable as possible with all the necessities to feel at home and to help save money while there. Hope you will come again.
This unit is more of an extended studio. The bedroom is separated only by sliding slat doors wall to wall. It looked like a closet door in the pictures. If you need privacy/sound barrier, this won't help. Also there were only four bath towels provided (3 people 1 week) plus beach towels and hand/face towels. I've asked for more towels, but was sent to the laundry or pay $140 extra for cleaners to come. This was not an issue in other condos.. Cleaning lacked some, the runners are quite stained, as well as the couch, could use a wash... Some updates were done, more are needed. We will not return sorry
To start, I am sorry you were not satisfied with your stay. I do try to make my guest as comfortable as possible.
I would like to clarify a few of the things you mentioned: It clearly shows that the bedroom is open in the pictures and with it having the sliders it is considered a bedroom, not a studio. If you had concerns about privacy, I gave you my phone number and email at time of booking for you to call and ask me anything you wanted.
Towels, I have from the time I started renting this condo out 4 years ago only provided 4, along with 4 beach towels and have not had one complaint on this. This is not a resort type complex where they may be provided for you in past stays. It is hard for the cleaning company to get the condo cleaned and all the laundry done if we just keep giving guests more towels. It is stated on the site and in the rental that daily maid service is NOT provided. Again if you had questions on this you could have called before your stay to ask me. Most guests who stay in condo's like this are accustomed to doing their laundry if they need more towels.
The stains you mentioned, I have full trust in my cleaning company that they are cleaning the condo. When dust/dirt blows in it is the red dirt and it stains. So it doesn't mean the condo isn't clean. My cleaning company does an outstanding job.
Updates, not sure what else you would want to update, kitchen has granite counters and cupboards are 3 years old. I just bought a brand new swivel chair in February, bathroom vanity is marble top. Tile through out, carpet in bedroom. Tub/shower combo is not old as well.
So to end, I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay.
Loved the condo
The house was clean, has the ocean access, nice view and pool next to condo. We really enjoyed being there. Kids loved the swimming pool and the turtle on the ocean viewing from the balcony. My wife loved the fresh flower when we entered the condo. Definitely recommend to a friend.
I appreciate the nice review! I do strive to make my guest's stay as comfortable as possible by providing beach gear, linens and a stocked kitchen. But most importantly it being clean and comfortable. I really depend and my cleaning company a lot and they have been amazing. So thank you again! Please keep me in mind for your next visit and tell your friends.
Great Location & Clean
The condo is in a great location -ocean front (you can swim in front, no sandy beach area; however, there is a beach a 5-minute walk down the road). The condo is equipped with everything you would need for cooking and meal prep, also a nice looking BBQ area by the pool. The beach chairs, towels, and cooler provided make a great addition for day trips. It doesn't have air conditioning but the large fans and ocean breeze through screen doors keep the place very cool. Great sun deck by pool area too. We had a great stay -100% would recommend.
Thank you for the nice review, they do help out a lot. Glad that we were able to make your stay more comfortable with what we provide. I know how expensive it can get to start having to rent things for the beach. Please come back soon.
Weneki's is located at the Hale Ono Loa condos on lower Honoapiilani Rd. It has a Times grocery store on the lower road along with a farmers market. A small church is close by all within walking distance.
