stayed four weeks in March 2013

Location was great, lovely lanai, great pool, grounds very lush and tropical, great viewing platform to watch distant whales and up close sea turtles.
Very close to bus stops which we used almost daily. We purchased a senior monthly pass for $25 each.
Condo itself is very dated. It is in need of a few things to help improve your stay. The following items would greatly enhance the condo: covered casserole dish, new frying pans, new pillows with pillow protectors, additional cutlery, set of bowls with lids and a new large cutting board. (the old one is worn out)
Dishwasher handle is broken and dishwasher will not close completely to do dishes. Patio door does not lock (you have to use a long stick to keep is secure) and has a gap of several inches when the inside door is open.
It is within walking distance to a large grocery store. The Farmer's Market is very close to the condo.
No great restaurants within walking distance but taking the bus you can reach many. Our favorites were the Sea House in Nipili and Basil Tomatoe near Kaanapali resorts. Do not recommend the new restaurant in Lahaina called Fleetwoods, setting is beautiful but food not great and some servers not very friendly. Also Lahaina Pizza Co. is very good.
Would highly recommend the Feast at Lele and the Old Lahaina Luau.

Owner's Response: Hello there!
Thank you for staying at our condo recently. We appreciate it and are glad you found Maui enjoyable. Hale Ono Loa is indeed a beautiful place--we are thrilled you liked the property.
Thanks for the tips about the condo. The door lock was apparently broken, according to our handyman, who fixed the issue this morning actually. Sorry I didn't realize it was broken. Same thing for the dishwasher. I didn't realize it was in the condition it was in, but rest assured it has been repaired. For future guests--let me know if there is an issue and I will address immediately.
Take care and best of luck in the future.
Mike & Heidi
