About Wendy Hibbs

Terry and Wendy Hibbs are small business owners from the tiny mountain town of Salida, Colorado. Terry operates a crane company known locally as Terry's Crane & Rigging, and Wendy does all the behind-the-scenes book work for the business. In addition to this, they have also raised a family of 2 girls and 1 boy, and are now proud grandparents of 3 grandchildren! They enjoy travelling, spending time with their children and grandchildren, and running their business.

Wendy Hibbs purchased this condo in 2013

Why Wendy Hibbs chose West Maui

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!

Awesome week in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We've spent a week at Wendy's place in the beginning of September. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a perfect combination of quality / comfort / price. Very conveniently located away from traffic and noise yet close enough to walk to coffee shops / farmers market and great beach couple of hundred meters away. Very clean unit fully stocked with everything you need to spend your vacation and not having to worry about little things, a closet full of snorkeling stuff / fold-able beach chairs and such was just a cherry on top.

My wife was concerned with absence of AC but despite having visited during one of the warmest times of the year there was enough breeze at night that you can sleep perfectly fine.

Booking through Paypal was super convenient as well.

Thanks Wendy

FANTASTIC hosts, condo, complex, price & location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Wendy's condo in Honokowai. I cannot say enough about how great the experience was from start to finish. Wendy, unlike so many other hosts, actually responded timely and thoroughly to all my questions. Booking was easy and painless. The condo itself was everything I expected and more. It has all the bells including granite counters, wood cabinets, marble vanity and nice furniture. The kitchen is well equipped for those who want to eat in. It's very near a major grocer and a great local market. The king bed was very comfortable and I'm a picky sleeper. There isn't AC but we were fine with leaving the bedroom windows open and the lanai door partially open. There was a breeze the whole time we were there. Another great thing about the condo was the closet of 'beach gear'. It was unexpected but sooo appreciated. There were beach chairs, noodles, boogie boards, and snorkel gear which was just awesome! Being on the first floor overlooking the pool, I was concerned about noise but it turned out to be fine. Quiet hours were well respected and there were rarely people in the pool. The complex itself was super quiet and well maintained. We rarely saw/heard anyone. Her wi-fi was great too! There are washer/dryers onsite but be sure to have quarters. I'd highly recommend this condo for anyone who wants to enjoy West Maui but doesn't want to spend a fortune. Overall, a great place and host. I'd stay here again without hesitation. Maui (and Wendy) no ka oi! Mahalo nui loa, Wendy!

Birthday Dreams Come True

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that I own & rent out long-term high end furnished corporate units in Alaska. Renting a private unit honestly had me nervous. Very weird being "on the other side." Wendy was everything I prayed for in an owner. She answered all of my questions both on the phone & via email. Her personality shined right through. Payment was fast & secure. Other units were not responding well or at all. With Wendy this was not the case, she was prompt and professional. Wendy had me do everything via email (forms) & I just mailed everything back to her for her records. Please if you rent from her, be courteous & reciprocate with promptness. I can understand her world and appreciate an honest tenant. Anyways.....when we arrived she checked on us via text and also various times during our stay. We even texted her with any questions we had regarding the island. The unit was clean, well stocked & was everything she advertised. The complex itself is very well maintained. The laundry facilities were fabulous. The area around the complex had any shop you needed and had people out and about at various times of the day and night. We always felt safe. No problems or concerns there. The unit itself faces the water. We thought we would miss having an ocean steps away but it ended up not fazing us at all. The sun deck was huge and provided a great place to have a drink and watch the sunset. We used the grill, was always available to us. The wifi in the unit was very very good to have, thanks Wendy! I mentioned to Wendy the bathroom rugs looked a bit worn, she replaced them. Also, the outside storage closet (which was well stocked with beach things!) was off it's hinges due to a screw that had fallen out of the wheel track. It was not a big deal, these things happen. She immediately put in an order to get it fixed & was it was fixed. Same thing with a small screen latch, again, it did not affect us but she had it fixed. As a landlord myself I just wanted her to be aware of these things. She was so appreciative that we were looking out for the unit & was very eager to keep it maintained and in top notch condition. Her word was gold. My husband and I will definitely be back to Maui and highly recommend this unit. I selfishly don't want to say how great the place is so that I don't have to compete for an opening! LOL. As to Maui, fun fun fun!! We went knowing nothing. Don't stress out, just go and pick something different to do everyday! THX WENDY.

Great Location and Lots of Turtle Watching!

  • 5 of 5

We had a good time and the condo was in a great complex. The unit provided all of our amenity needs and the bed was really comfortable. Close to parks and restaurants. The turtle viewing from the observation deck and seawall were amazing, I could watch them all day long. The tradewinds and ceiling fans made the unit a perfect temperature. Wendy the owner was very nice, easy to contact, and all of the directions for keys/codes, etc were perfect.

Thank you!

Great condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week In January.The condo has everything you would need to feel right at home. The large observation deck is a perfect place for morning coffee, whale and turtle watching, and of course beautiful sunsets. Walking distance to groceries, restaurants and beaches. Wendy is very easy to work with, she checked in with me to make sure I had arrived safely and had everything I needed.
