About Wendy Hibbs

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!

Pool shut down loud construction told to after we paid.

  • 2 of 5

We only had access to the pool for two of 4 days. When construction was going on it was very loud. We were told of the pool construction before arrival but not before we booked and paid. I would have expected a credit to bill or some discount but never recieved one. Other than that location and room was nice. Wendy was very nice.

Owner's Response: Jeremy, I am so sorry for the inconvenience of the pool construction. No time is a good time to have to close a pool. At the time that you booked with me there was no mention of fixing the pool. They had been trying to get it fixed with no luck. As soon as I knew of the repairs I let you know. And I am more than willing to offer you a discount. I will put it in the mail today. Again I am sorry for this inconvenience!!! Thank you again for staying with me. Mahalo, Wendy

Very nice and clean. The room itself was nicely updated.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very enjoyable experience. There were turtles and crabs out front that we could watch daily. The pool was nice for cooling off in. The only thing we missed was the possibility to use A/C when it got too hot but we managed with the breezes on the windier days. The room had all we needed. Thanks for a great place to stay!

PERFECT PLACE with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't pick a better place to stay in west Maui.

Condo was very clean when we got there, beach and snorkeling gear in the storage, kitchen small but well equipped. Lanai with a table is facing the pool which was great for us because our kids spent in that pool every morning and every night.

The complex is located in the middle of all the west Maui beaches with Farmers Market and beach rental 1000 feet away.

The best thing about this condo is a SEA TURTLE viewing. The complex doesn't have a beach access. There is only a stone wall with the gate facing the waves. Every evening after 6 pm, five to ten sea turtles were coming to feed on agley covering this wall. You can watch them from the top or swim with them. The water there is shallow and if there are no or little waves it's safe even for kids. With bigger waves water gets cloudy and you have to be careful not to get smashed on the wall .

If we will ever come to Maui again we will rent this place for sure.

Clean, comfortable and perfect for a small family!

  • 4 of 5

Wendy was very helpful in getting everything booked and she checked in with us throughout our stay to see if we needed anything. We love that this unit is on the ground floor for easy access to the pool and parking lot. Having grass out in front of the lanai was nice too. We really appreciated that the unit came with a playpen and high chair which were both in excellent condition and perfect for out little ones. The king sized bed was very comfortable for us adults too! The shower could use some updating (a removable shower head would have been nice) but everything was clean and comfortable otherwise.

ThE building is in a great location, with just a short drive to the grocery store and to the lovely city of Lahaina. Right out front of the building there is a beach but only in the morning. There are always turtles swimming out there!! Unfortunately the water is a bit murky so the snorkeling isn't great out front but there is a bay about 10min away that is awesome for it!!

All in all we had a wonderful time in Maui and would definitely recommend Wendy's unit to others! It's excellent value and great customer relations.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jodi, I'm glad you found the condo comfortable and well equipped. My husband and I strive to make it comfortable as much as possible. We know how expensive it can get. We have been coming to Hawaii since our 3 kids were little, we should have rented something like that but back then they really didn't have a lot. So we stayed in hotels. Please keep me in mind for your next visit and tell your friends. Mahalo, Wendy

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Wendy. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We had an amazing time. This trip was our first experience with VRBO and we definitely will be doing it again. You made everything so easy from booking to payment to check in. You have the perfect location, easy to find, quiet neighborhood, walking distance to farmers market, coffee house and the beach. You are so thoughtful with the welcoming box of Hawaiian chocolates, parking pass, cupboards stocked with essentials and snorkeling, beach toys and beach chairs. The beach towels were nice so we did not have to pack our own. After a long day of exploring your beautiful island, it was nice to come home to a super comfy huge bed. If we are fortunate enough to return to Maui, we definitely hope your condo will be available. Mahalo

Extra super

  • 5 of 5

J'ai adoré mon séjour dans ce condo. Je le recommande à tous. Bien situé, pres d'une épicerie et à quelques minutes d'une pharmacie et autres magasins. Grand condo , très confortable, lit très confortable et vue sur la cour et la piscine. On peut entendre le bruit des vagues. Rapport qualité prix numéro 1. Si je reviens , je retournerais à cet endroit.
