About Mr and Mrs Tway, Owners

From our first trip to maui in 1989, our dream, at some point, was to sooner or later own a little piece of paradise here.We vacationed here nearly every year for 15 years, and finally ended up buying our little place.

Mr and Mrs Tway, Owners purchased this condo in 2003

Why Mr and Mrs Tway, Owners chose Wailea

This location can't be BEAT! Over the years we traveled back to Maui nearly every year that we could afford to. We rented condos all over the island, and We experienced everything from very nicely upgraded and nicely decorated units... to those that certainly had seen better days. In 2003 We fell in love with Hale Kamaole for many reasons, but mainly because it's just steps to the beach, close to shops and dining, and offers beautiful views throughout the property.And, because there are so many sites to see, and so many activities, many within a 5-15 minute walk,or no more than a than a 30 min. drive.

What makes this condo unique

Across from great family Beach!(with Lifeguards)

We have tried to make our condo meet - and hopefully exceed - all your vacation needs. From upscale linens, towels, and bedding, to a well-equipped and beautifully remodeled kitchen, comfortable furnishings, and a 'goodie closet' full of beach gear, we feel we’ve created a relaxing and well-appointed place for your island activities, adventures, AND comfort.

We hope you’ll treasure your memories here and consider our place as your little piece of paradise too.

Walking distance to beach, parks, shops, restaurants, and activities. Just a short 5-10 minute drive to several championship golf courses in the area! Watch whales frolicking(in season) from our upper pool.... which is just 20 steps away from our patio sliding door :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

by: Willy West Caldwell, New Jersey

Thank you to the owner Merrilyn for our stay in Kihei, the condo was beautiful and fully equipped. With an ocean view and a one minute walk to the beach. Bbq and pool just 30 feet away. My wife was very happy and that's was all I needed. We will definitely come back next time in Maui!!!

Perfect location for excellent snorkle beaches

  • 5 of 5
The condo was perfect! Plenty of towels, comfortable king size bed, walk in shower, and afternoon breezes. We were thankful for all the beach gear in the storage closet...chairs, boogie boards and more. The unit is a short drive to the snorkle beaches in Makena and Wailea. We saw turtles every morning.
We have stayed at this property before but first time in this unit. It will be our first choice for our next trip to Maui.

Lovely Condo

  • 4 of 5
My rating is VERY GOOD but they don't seem to have that as a choice!
We had a great time at Hale Kamaole. Your condo is so nice and it is a very relaxing place to stay. We liked that it was close to stores and the beach yet felt away from all the activity in Kihei. We traveled all over the island, except we missed the volcano areas -- next time. The condo is very tastefully decorated and has a well appointed kitchen. We enjoyed some dinners and breakfasts on the Lanai. Though there is not a direct view of the ocean, we moved the chairs and table out about 10 feet when we wanted to enjoy the ocean view and the sunsets. It is also close to the upper pool so you can take a dip and come back to the lanai if you don't want to sunbathe. A very nice beach is just beyond the entrance to the condo--it has a grassy area above which has a nice view of the coastline.

Tasteful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at your lovely and comfortable condo. I loved that it was right across the street from the beach. I love to walk and it is a perfect start to a long a beautiful walk to Wailea and beyond.
Your condo is tastefully decorated and we enjoyed checking out all the interesting artworks.
The pool and BBQ are just right off the lanai, so convenient. So enjoyable. We had all the amenities you could want.
I had such a great time at Five Palms Restaurant and Cafe O Lei, two of my favorites.
Thank you so much for sharing
your home. I would love stay here again.

Condo was a great location and walking distance to all amenities. Kam III beach right across the street. Perfect for early morning walks to the beach and of course, photos of the sunset. Condo contained all items required to cook meals, etc. Patio faced the BBQ pit, pool and grass area. Just a few steps from all, made BBQ'ing a breeze. The grass area was perfect for the kids (all ages) to hang out as we watched on. Two pools so if one contained kids, the singles or adults had the option to use the other pool. It was also a bonus to be so close to the pool just in case you forgot something. The condo was clean, lovely decorated, comfortable and the owners went out of their way by providing things to do and see for us (information, etc). Recommend to all ages with or without children. We will be back soon!!

A Fantastic Family Escape!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this beautiful condo from 11-20 March 2014. When we arrived the condo was very clean and well stocked with needed items like cleaning supplies, toilet paper, beach towels, books, movies and coffee, etc! And it looked just like it did in the photos :) The location is perfect for any family - just across the street from a great beach and a 5 minute drive from many other fantastic beaches (with great snorkelling). We loved the atmosphere around the pool and BBQ pit - very friendly and a great place to chat with other families and find out about other activities/places to visit around the island. The hosts were very attentive and helpful, making it easy to plan our vacation from a far. The location was perfect! Very close to many great restaurants and beaches, but also in a central location to visit the rest of the island. We loved every minute of this vacation and highly recommend staying in this wonderful gem of a condo! We hope to make this an annual vacation :)

This condo is well equipped and has one of the best locations in the complex. Just a few steps to pool, BBQ, tennis courts and your car. PLUS it has a very private lanai and does not get the direct sun (at least not in Nov Dec) which means it is cool and comfortable all day in and out.
