WEST MAUI OCEANFRONT RESORT DELUXE PENTHOUSE SUITE, SUPERB OCEANVIEW

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

- 1 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 4.

Enjoy a peaceful maui vacation at Hale Ono Loa. Hale Ono Loa means 'House of Good Living' in the Hawaiian language. The value of Hale Ono Loa is unparalleled, and so close to Kaanapali, Kapalua and Lahaina. Spectacular views of the Pacific and romantic sunsets are yours from the condo and large lanai. Enjoy the fantastic, entertaining show that the humpback whales put on during the whale season. Enjoy the dolphins and turtles while the humpbacks are gone. Beautiful Rainbows Abound. The beautiful tropical grounds come with a swimming pool, oceanfront sundeck, sunset deck, shuffle board, gas BBQ, oceanfront shower and outdoor checker board. Enjoy snorkeling, surfing and kayaking right in front of the condo complex. This quiet complex is a wonderful alternative to a crowded and noisy resort.

SUPERIOR KEYLESS ENTRY & STANDARD KEYED ENTRY SYSTEM

OPTIMAL INTERIOR AIRFLOW ORIENTATION / CONFIGURATION

Hale Ono Loa Resort: Enjoy the beautiful swimming pool surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage. Snorkel, dive, fish, surf, or kayak right out in front of the condo complex. Fantastic whale watching during whale season. Complex has a small library so you can enjoy the latest books while you are relaxing at Hale Ono Loa. Hale Ono Loa is a secluded paradise. The resort features a special elevated ocean-side sundeck with a great ocean view perfect for watching whales in winter and sunsets year round. An elevator services all floors from the inside lounging area in the lobby. Laundry facilities are available on the property. Amidst the tropical palm tree setting are yard games, barbecue facilities, and one of the largest pools in the area. Children just love the grassy area with shuffleboard. Adults enjoy the shaded tables for a quiet reading area. Wonderful pool area with lounge chairs to relax and enjoy your favorite book in. Take a dip in the pool!

KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM: (FOR FIRST ENTRY & AVAILABLE FOR SUBSEQUENT ENTRIES)

The Owners issue IN WRITING to each Guest party a 6-DIGIT NUMERIC ACCESS CODE to enter on the door-mounted ELECTRONIC KEYPAD to unlock the front door FROM THE OUTSIDE. Each time the 6-DIGIT NUMERIC ACCESS CODE is entered, the front door lock unlocks for 15 SECONDS and then automatically relocks itself. The 6-digit numeric access code is VALID throughout the ENTIRE DURATION of the Guest party's Stay and can be entered on the electronic keypad to unlock the front door lock from the outside an UNLIMITED number of times.

STANDARD KEYED ENTRY SYSTEM: (AVAILABLE FOR SECOND & SUBSEQUENT ENTRIES)

Once inside the Unit, the Guest party finds PHYSICAL keys to the Unit and to the Pool Area. The front door lock can be unlocked from the outside by a PHYSICAL KEY TO THE UNIT in the ordinary familiar way. In other words, after the FIRST ENTRY, each SUBSEQUENT unlocking of the front door lock from the outside by the Guest party MAY (at the Guest party's elective) be accomplished EITHER by its use of: (1) PHYSICAL KEY, OR (2) 6-DIGIT NUMERIC ACCESS CODE.

This Unit (Hale Ono Loa 415) is on the top floor of the South Wing and centrally located in the overall large-scale architectural scheme, and with this location (Location, LOCATION!) come many desirable characteristics for vacationers (some of which are discussed herein) that naturally timelessly persist in perpetuity enduring totally uninfluenced by anything anybody has done, does, or can do. Beyond this intrinsic relative quality of the space and in COMMENSURATION therewith, the Owners further enhanced and perfected their Unit by completely refurbishing all aspects of the interior, thereby providing every improvement, modernization, luxury, facility, appliance, and capability their hearts desired. Thus, this Unit NOT ONLY has inherent rare quality based upon its location, BUT ALSO has: (a) a SUMPTUOUS DELUXE REAL INTERIOR with exquisite design, construction, and craftsmanship, and (b) a rich comprehensive set of high quality appointments, furnishings, and amenities.

FULL-SIZED REFRIGERATOR / FREEZER / AUTOMATIC ICEMAKER

Refrigerator cools its contents to just the right temperature (slightly above water's freezing point) and then maintains that perfect temperature; Freezer cools its contents to a very cold freezing temperature (significantly below water's freezing point); and Automatic Icemaker produces a never-ending supply of fresh, easily-accessible, very cold ice.

STAY TUNED HERE & ON OUR WEBSITE AS WE DEVELOP THE FOLLOWING STORY AND OFFER OUR ADVICE TO TRAVELERS BASED UPON THIS CASE STUDY

It has come to our attention that some persons (hereinafter the 'Refrigerator Defamers' or simply the 'RD') have published (either orally or in writing) to other third persons their factually untrue (false) TESTIMONY that our refrigerator was at some time in the past 'broken'. Any of the Refrigerator Defamers whose factually false testimony is based upon their own personal examination of the REAL evidence (in this case the actual refrigerator itself) are hereinafter referred to as the 'RD Accusers'. Those Refrigerator Defamers whose factually false testimony is NOT based upon their own personal examination of the refrigerator itself are hereinafter referred to as the 'RD Hearsayers', because their factually false testimony is either hearsay itself, materially derived from hearsay, and/or hearsay on hearsay (double hearsay or triple hearsay, for example, such as 'heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from another').

Another group of persons (hereinafter the 'Refrigerator Confirmers' or simply the 'RC') numbering perhaps more than several hundred times that of the number of RD Accusers, have successfully operated and/or personally examined the refrigerator and found it to be in perfect working order during all times of their observation.

Since all of the Refrigerator Defamers (both RD Accusers and RD Hearsayers) have published defamatory LANGUAGE, in our humble opinion we think that they SHOULD have been reasonably certain as to the truth of their defamatory statements; thus, they should have believed that there was a very high probability that their defamatory statements were true when they made them (in part because their credibility is ultimately at stake, but also for other reasons). Since the above-identified defamatory statements turned out to be FALSE, based upon OUR DATA about the Refrigerator Defamers' track records it is MUCH MORE LIKELY (a) that all of the Refrigerator Defamers defamatory statements concerning ANYONE OR ANYTHING are not credible in general (very LOW probability that any given one of their defamatory statements is true) than (b) that this instance was randomly the only time (or one of very few times) that they were wrong BUT that they have been consistently right in their defamations a very large number of other times.

Thus, unless you (the traveler) are interested in and can find credible verification as to the truth of a very large number of other defamatory statements (without finding very many other later-determined-to-be-false statements) coming from the Refrigerator Defamers, we recommend that travelers should:

(1) regarding the RD Accusers, disregard entirely as UNRELIABLE and/or untrustworthy ANY direct defamatory opinion (about anyone or anything) of any of the RD Accusers (such as any defamatory finding purported to be his or her own 'expert' or 'lay person' finding based upon his or her own examination of any REAL evidence); and

(2) regarding the RD Hearsayers, disregard entirely as UNTRUSTWORTHY and/or unreliable any defamatory statement (about anyone or anything) that any RD Hearsayer claims to be a true statement of another relayed by the RD Hearsayer (such as any defamatory statement he or she says he or she heard (or read) spoken (or written) by somebody else).

While it is logically possible for a RD Hearsayer to become a member of the RC (Refrigerator Confirmers), our advice #2 above persists for that particular RD Hearsayer that we do not recommend to travelers their ever granting of any merit to any defamatory statement coming from that particular RD Hearsayer that is NOT that RD Hearsayer's own 'expert' or 'lay person' finding based upon his or her direct examination of REAL evidence. Similarly, while it is logically possible for an RD Accuser to relay truthful statements from the RC (Refrigerator Confirmers) about the ongoing excellent performance and condition of the refrigerator (and perhaps to later adopt those statements in their own new, corrected opinion based upon the accurate truthful hearsay from the RC and yet contradicting their previous erroneous opinion based upon their own direct examination of the REAL evidence), our advice #1 above persists for that particular RD Accuser that we do not recommend to travelers their ever granting of any merit to any defamatory statement coming from that RD Accuser that purports to be his or her own 'expert' or 'lay person' finding.

Please refer to our website if you would like MUCH MORE information (including Model Number) about our self-defrosting (Sears) Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator / Freezer with Automatic Icemaker.

HOUSEKEEPING IS PROVIDED prior to your Arrival. After the Guest's Check-In Date, Daily (or Interim) Maid or Cleaning Services are NOT scheduled, but MAY be ordered or requested by the Guest.

GUEST SERVICES HOTLINE:

The Owners: (1) PROMPTLY review voice messages (if any) from GUESTS recorded DURING THEIR SCHEDULED PERIOD OF TENANCY; (2) review IN DUE COURSE voice messages (if any) from GUESTS left after they have MADE AN INITIAL DEPOSIT and/or paid in full for their UPCOMING scheduled Stay; and (3) MAY (OR MAY NOT) review voice messages left on the GUEST SERVICES HOTLINE that do not fall into categories (1) or (2) above (but may nonetheless use pertinent CALLER ID or recorded information for identity verification or other purposes.)

Guest Services purchased this condo in 2005

SUPERIORITY OF THE ACCESS MODEL:

The KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM and KEYED ENTRY SYSTEM are entirely parallel systems, provide identical functionality, and thereby serve as BACKUPS to one another for the Guest parties. The cross redundancy of the KEYLESS SYSTEM and KEYED SYSTEM and some of the unique characteristics of the KEYLESS SYSTEM together provide a number of advantages to the Guest parties over an ordinary lock system (having only a physical key facility). Among those advantages are that: since the Guest party's KNOWLEDGE of the 6-digit numeric access code CANNOT be locked inside the Unit while the Guest Party is outside the Unit, a responsible Guest party that remembers their 6-digit numeric access code IS NOT ABLE TO 'lock themselves out' (such that they require assistance from anyone to regain access to the Unit) under ANY circumstances EVEN IF THEY LOCK THE PHYSICAL KEYS INSIDE.

Moreover, in addition to being redundant to one another, each of the KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM and the KEYED ENTRY SYSTEM is backed up by multiple levels of simple fail-safe procedures, contacts, and facilities in the obvious and traditional ways.

The Owners have relied on the above-described systems in each and every one of their HUNDREDS of rentals to Guest parties since 2006, and have NEVER NEEDED to resort to ANY of the multiple levels of fail-safe procedures, contacts, or facilities for EITHER SYSTEM; NO GUEST who rented from the Owners HAS EVER BEEN LOCKED OUT for any reason for even the slightest instant of time; and NO ACCESS CODE that the Owners have EVER issued to ANYONE has EVER failed to perform as promised WHEN USED AS AUTHORIZED during the periods of time that such authorization was granted by the Owners.

Please refer to the Owners' website if you are interested in seeing pictures of the front door and front door lock.

Superb Panoramic Oceanview: This particular unit boasts the ultimate oceanview available in a one-bedroom condo at Hale Ono Loa whether viewing from the lanai or from inside the unit in terms of each of the following metrics: surface area of ocean visible (square feet or square meters); two-dimensional angular size of oceanview, parallel to the horizon (degrees or radians); and three-dimensional angular size of oceanview (square degrees or steradians). Additionally, from within the unit, the mirrored wall increases the angular field of view of the Pacific Ocean and the island of Lanai.

GREAT VIEW, NICE PLACE, FRIENDLY RESIDENT MANAGER

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here. The condo is in great shape, the kitchen had plenty of utensils, and best of all, the unit has a great, unobstructed view directly facing the ocean. Really a nice place to stay. Great to hang out on the lanai, especially in the mornings and at night. We saw a pod of dolphins go by one morning! No wireless internet in this unit. The resident manager is a very friendly guy with recommendations for snorkling, local bands, etc. Highly recommended.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO

  • 4 of 5
We rented the condo for 9 days during our honeymoon and were completely satisfied. The unit is perfectly clean and organized. They provide all of the kitchen equipment and utensils as well as towels. They give you a parking pass so you can park for free. There is no air conditioning but that is not necessary, between the trade winds and fans we were perfectly cool (and we love air conditioning).

The view is spectacular. You are right on the ocean front. You can see sea turtles in the morning and apparently you can see whales during whale season (we missed it).

The area is perfect. It is a 10 minute drive from Lahaina where there are lots of amazing restaurants, shops and activities. There is a health food store, coffee shop and fish market within walking distance. It is a few minutes from Kaanapali beaches and about 35 minutes from the airport.

The only downfall is that you do not deal directly with a person at any point. All transactions are done via email and snail mail. Do not pay late or you might lose your reservation. All condo info is sent via mail, however there was no problems getting there or getting into the place.

june 2010 We spent 8 nights in this wonderful condo. The view is fabulous and sunsets are awesome. Lots of extras in the condo so we didn't really have to buy anything. All the dishes,, pots etc were all top noche.
the pool is right below the room but no noise. We were able to snorkel with sea turtles just off the beach area on a small reef. Well worth it Highly recommended.

GREAT VIEW! SEA TURTLES AND RAINBOWS

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed an extraordinary week in Maui and it was great to come "home" to this condo at the end of our day. It was comfortable and full of amenities. It's not fussy, there is no resort traffic to compete with, and it's close to anything you'd like to do in Lahaina. Plus, it was just all-around pleasant -- the other residents/guests were polite and welcoming. The quirks of the condo (someone loves their label maker, everything is labeled! Or tied down (which in the fantastic breeze -- good idea!) gives it a sense of humor while making it completely easy to get around.

Every morning we saw sea turtles in front of the property and througout the afternoon we saw rainbows, it was a true hawaiian experience.

The unit owners were easy to work with and the entire experience was hassle-free.

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We had a wonderful stay at this oceanfron suite. The views of the ocean and the outer islands were amazing, as was the sunset. The unit does not have air conditioning, but this was not a problem at all. The trade winds every day and night were excellent. As you walk into the suite, you notice the amazing view, through the wall to wall sliding glass doors. The suite is very beautiful and comfortable. We hope we have the opportunity to stay here again.

Map

Kahului International Airport (OGG)
Car: recommended

The Hale Ono Loa literally 'rises above' its surroundings as its architectural style includes a very tall (somewhat ornamental) portion of the structure that proudly casts its name ('Hale Ono Loa') at a height above the tree lines and nearby structures and is thus prominently visible from inland positions. The two 4-story wings of the Hale Ono Loa and its single-wing 4-story neighbor (Hono Koa) together complete an aesthetically pleasing large-scale quadrilateral courtyard-style environment open to the ocean on the longest side. The South Wing of Hale Ono Loa forms a side that directly faces the open ocean side and courtyard areas, while the other two 4-story buildings form the other two sides and are located off either of the South Wing's flanks.

ABOUT THE WEATHER

The Tradewinds blow with a persistently significant velocity over all of the State of Hawaii FROM an average direction (ABOUT 1.274 RADIANS for all of the State of Hawaii; and very slightly more Easterly than that locally) that is nearly precisely East-NorthEast (ENE). In other words, the average annual 'upwind' direction in Hawaii is closer to ENE than it is to (either) due East (or to 'due' NorthEast). IF the trade wind is blowing directly FROM the East-NorthEast at any given moment, THEN the wind velocity vector points west-southwest and has a WEST-FLOWING SPEED COMPONENT that is about 2.4 times that of its south-flowing speed component [cotangent of pi/8 radians = 1 + 2^(1/2)] . The Unit faces nearly due West (~ 4.975 radians), and is basically rectangular with EXTERIOR OPENINGS ON THE EAST AND WEST SIDES. By far, the largest exterior opening on the windward / wind intake side (the East) is the front door opening (also with a large vent right next to it), which is STRATEGICALLY LOCATED AT THE EAST-NORTHEAST corner of our rectangular Unit, thereby OPTIMIZING THE INTAKE OF THE EAST-NORTHEAST TRADE WINDS for enhanced distribution throughout the interior.

The PHJH Weather Station at the Kapalua West Maui Airport is the nearest weather station to Hale Ono Loa at less than 1 mile away (about 0.7 of a mile). Based upon 1-year (8784 consecutive hourly data point measurements during a 366 consecutive day span) of weather data from the nearby PHJH Weather Station: the average 7 AM temperature is 72.3 degrees Fahrenheit; the average 2 PM temperature is highest (of the 24 hourly averages); the average 7 PM temperature is 74.6 degrees Fahrenheit; the average 6-DAY HIGH / LOW TEMPERATURES are 79.8 / 69.2 degrees Fahrenheit (computed as the average high and average low for all highs and lows corresponding to all distinct 6-DAY windows (with the last six days wrapping back to the first six days for consistency)); and the standard deviations of the average 6-DAY HIGH / LOW TEMPERATURES are 3.9 / 2.1 degrees Fahrenheit.

SUPERIOR, EXEMPLARY VIEW OF THE RESORT COMMON ELEMENTS (See Owners' website for details.)

Unit 415 directly faces the Ocean & the Resort Common Elements (as clearly shown by the aerial picture and plan view sketch). Directly to south of Hale Ono Loa is the Hono Koa, which (was designed and built SUBSEQUENT to the designing and buildings of Hale Ono Loa and) includes a 4-story wing that is depicted as the bottom-most building with the amber-looking roof in the aerial picture. The Hono Koa has a few-foot-tall wooden SHAKE roof fascia elevated yet another few feet above the tops of its 4th floor units, contributing to its GORGEOUSNESS as a building to look AT.

Unit 415 DOES NOT DIRECTLY FACE ANY BUILDINGS, but rather has 'peekaboo' views from its lanai (and from some of its interior areas) of both the Hono Koa and the Hale Ono Loa North Wing, and thus there are some areas of Unit 415 in which you CAN maintain (a) SIGHTLINE(s) to the Hono Koa and/or North Wing for hours at a time IF YOU WANT TO, but the unobstructed views of the Ocean & Resort Common Elements will ALWAYS BE FRONT AND CENTER in the viewing directions mostly perpendicular to and through the Lanai Opening. Importantly, although the ocean view from the bedroom spans the entire horizontal extent of the lanai opening, NO point of the space in the bedroom of Unit 415 is intervisible to any point of space in any other Unit at Hale Ono Loa or at Hono Koa. (In other words, if you pick any point in Unit 415 Bedroom and call it 'Point A', and then pick any point in any space of any other unit of Hale Ono Loa or of any unit of Hono Koa and call it 'Point B', Points A & B will NOT be INTERVISIBLE regardless of how ANYBODY configures ANY doors, blinds, or other visual barriers.)
