We were the first guest to stay in this beautiful villa. I have to say everything is exceed our expectation. The villa has a very nice ocean view from the living room and bedroom. It is clean and the interior is nicely decorated. The service provided by the management company is excellent. Dave is so easy to work with and he makes sure everything is perfect for our stay. We will definitely stay again in this beautiful villa.
Loved the unit. Great appointments, larger than we expected, lanai fantastic, ocean view exactly as was presented, only one complaint. The property is so quiet. It could have used the sound of ocean waves piped in through the stereo.
Very short distance to several awesome beaches for snorkeling, sunning, people watching.
We will seriously consider returning to Hale O 'aka 'aka the next time we're on Maui.
Oh, and when we realized we'd booked our flight from the Big Island to the wrong Maui airport (oops) Dave bailed us out.
Hale O 'aka 'aka had absolutely everything we needed. It was a very lovely unit, that is well-appointed and furnished. Dave was incredibly helpful and responsive too! He provided a wonderful welcome pack with really delicious Maui almond cookies. We saw whales jumping all week, impossible to miss. The beach is a short walk down with some of the best snorkeling in Kapalua. The unit comes stocked with beach chairs, towells, all sorts of gear, which is very handy. We had dinner at Merriman's which was incredible - always is! We did some pitch and putt on the resort and my husband enjoyed 18 holes. Didn't need the pools, but it was awesome they were there and never busy. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends!
Quiet, comfortable, spacious – if that’s all our VRBO had offered, that already would have been enough for us to contemplate returning. Add in the beautiful big windows overlooking a lush landscape and a view of the ocean, a balcony big enough to invite friends to join us evenings, plus a great kitchen for easy food preparation and the place has the making of a long relaxing vacation.
However, we also came to explore the island and found our VRBO well situated for an ocean side walk or following the Village hiking trails, as well as a sandy beach to launch an afternoon of swimming – that is when we wanted a change from the lovely pool just behind our place. There were also plenty of good restaurants within walking distance, too many for us to taste test within the ten days we had on the island.
Though not centrally located, the VRBO was still within easy driving distance of numerous places of interest, like Lahaina, the Maui Ocean Center, Kikei – where we found a fabulous fresh produce market - Wailuku, Iao Valley State Park, Kepaniwai Heritage Gardens and
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mentioned Dave, who welcomed us to the island, toured us around our VRBO, and did a great interpretation of the grocery list we gave him before our arrival – bringing us fresh local produce and the yogurt I’d requested. He also gave us a list of recommended restaurants, as well as other useful information. Knowing that all we needed had been attended to, we settled in after our late arrival, slept soundly and enjoyed the whole of our stay there.
We were fortunate enough to book a Kapalua Golf Villa through VRBO and Maui Platinum Vacations. The golf villa was first class all the way. It had all we needed plus a drop dead beautiful view. We have been to Maui several times but never stayed in Kapalua. It was so great and now when we return would definitely be our first choice. We walked everywhere and also the availability of the Kapalua shuttle made it so easy to get anywhere within Kapalua. The pools, the beach, the Honalulu shop plus the many restaurants gave us everything we needed and more. The biggest plus was dealing with Dave at Maui Platinum Vacations. He went well out of his way to arrange whatever we neded. He set up a vow renewal ceremony for us, even came and photographed it for us and arranged for a masseuse to come to the condo to give us both one of the best massages we've ever received. We would HIGHLY recommend dealing with him and booking one of their golf villas! Maui is indeed paradise.
We spent eight nights at this beautiful condo in July, 2014. This was our first time staying at the golf villas in Kapalua. We have stayed at Napili Kai Beach Resort twice before. We love Napili Kai and the area but decided to look for something less expensive this time. We were a little worried that our two sons (12 and 14) would not like this condo as much as the resort, but they LOVED it even more. We all loved the layout and the tasteful decor of this upscale condo. The condo provided a perfect combination of comfort and privacy surrounded by a beautiful view of the golf course and the ocean behind it. It came equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy an amazing vacation. The upgraded kitchen was stocked with everything from pots and pans to beautiful dishes. The two bathrooms were fully appointed with toilet paper, soap, shampoo and conditioner. The furniture in the condo is beautiful and very comfortable and welcoming. Our boys slept very well in the fold out couch in the living room and so did we in the master bed room.
The main pool is very nice and only steps away from the condo. The Golf Villas have a free shuttle service that takes you anywhere you want to go within the area. You just call them and they show up within 10-15 minutes which is great if you are bringing boogie boards and beach chairs to the beach. However, the walk from the condo to the beach is not bad at all. Both Napili and Kapalua Beach are only a 15 minute walk from the condo.
We highly recommend this unit and can’t wait to go back.
We stayed at this property in February 2014 for 10 days on our first trip to Maui. The location in Kapalua was excellent for us. There is a lot to see and do in the area, wonderful beaches, golf, tennis, snorkeling. This is pretty much the priciest area on an already expensive island, so it's wonderful to have the option of grilling your own meals outdoors by the pool. Driving to other parts of the island can be lengthy since Kapalua is up in the NW. The property itself is "good" but I cannot rate it 5 stars based on our stay. There were numerous issues with many basic items not being in the kitchen, A/C stopped working for a few days and generally very noisy during the day with all of the grounds work. This in addition to construction that we were made aware of and compensated for. But the regular grounds crew generated far more noise than the adjacent construction crews. I guess it needs to happen to keep the place looking as nice as it does but just an FYI if you like quiet. The other annoyance was no door seperating the bedroom area from the rest of the living space. Tough not to wake your partner up if you are in the kitchen and they are still trying to sleep.
Otherwise, it's a very beautiful location with wonderful sunset views each evening, great ocean view (from a distance) and wonderful amenities. We would definitely consider staying in the Kapulua area again. It is certainly a stretch to classify this property in the "Platinum" category but I know that Dave (the manager) is making strides to get it there.
