Beach front condo with spectacular sunsets, and a great place to watch the whales frolic during whale season.
This condo has been extensively remodeled with updated kitchen and baths, plantation shutters on all windows, granite in kitchen, maple cabinets, washer and dryer, assigned underground parking, pool with barbeque area, beautiful beach, and within walking distance to restaurants and shops.
Play some of Maui's finest championship golf courses only a few miles away at Kapalua and Kaanapali. Visit the quaint old town of Lahaina where there are shops, restaurants and a harbor where you can take a whale watching boat or arrange a charter for deep sea fishing for the big ones.
You won't want to leave the condo's oceanfront lanai where you can watch dolphins spinning, sea turtles bobbing and even an occasional monk seal will swim by. The view from your private oceanfront lanai of the islands of Lanaii and Molokai, awesome double rainbows and a million stars at night will leave you with memories of Maui you won't soon forget.

We retired from our careers in the San Francisco bay area and moved to our condo in Maui with a plan to stay for two years and then return to the California foothills.
Rotating between Maui and our motor home in California allowed our regular renters to continue to use our condo and gave us an opportunity to visit the U.S, Canada, and Alaska. We have since located in the Sierra foothills where we tend to our orchard trees, Zinfandel grapevines, vegetable and rose garden. At the end of the growing season we are back to Maui for our sunset fix.
Doug Brenton purchased this condo in 1999
Having lived in California all of our lives, we’ve had easy and inexpensive access to Hawaii. We have traveled to all of the Hawaiian Islands since 1968, and found the West Maui area to be the best sunset location with the islands of Lanai and Molokai bracketing the sunset.
We were thrilled to find our fifth floor Hololani oceanfront condo with the view over the top of the palm trees. There is no place that we have traveled in the world that compares with the area’s beauty and it is easy and inexpensive access.
During whale season (November to May), we can’t go more than a few minutes without seeing whales from of our oceanfront Lanai. The other months of the year we are always entertained with the barge and cruise ship traffic, and the kite-boards and wind surfers flying over the waves. We recommend that our guests travel with binoculars because there is always something to see from our oceanfront lanai.
Our condo is located near good restaurants, world class golf courses, shopping, hiking, all kinds of water sports and spectacular views from all around the island. The trip to Hana and up to Haleakala are a must. Our best day in Maui is sitting on the lanai reading a good book and watching the sparkling waves as the sun moves across the sky. With any luck we’ll see spinning dolphins, monk seals, huge sea turtles or flying fish frolicking in the Pacific.
A few women friends, relatives, and I rented this condo to celebrate my reaching the half century mark. The location is everything. Beautiful sunsets with blazing tiki torches in the foreground, grilled fresh fish, and IZ on the CD player all made for nearly perfect evenings. The lullaby of the ocean as you drift off to sleep was the best part. The condo is very well equipped and tastefully decorated. Doug and Linda are a pleasure to rent from. This is a great value.
What a view! From the moment we opened the door, we were swept away by the proximity to the water, and the views of Lanai and Molokai. We ran from room to room to explore, and were never disappointed. The master bedroom, with its views of the water was phenomenal, and our daughter very much appreciated her own room with her ensuite bathroom.
The kitchen was extremely well stocked, with a wide variety of spices in the cupboard. There wasn't anything that we looked for that we couldn't easily find. The washer / dryer was a bonus, as this allowed us to pare down the amount of clothing we would normally bring for an extended stay. Doug's assistance was invaluable leading up to the rental period. He even sent us a number of brochures for local activities prior to our leaving for Maui so we could maximize our time spent on the island. There's a selection of stores within walking distance to secure the essentials, so if you don't want to travel too far, you really don't have to venture out by car unless you feel the need to explore. As other reviewers have mentioned, the unit is well stocked. We very much appreciated the beach gear that was included... beach towels, beach chairs, noodles and various aquatic equipment.
On a technical note, the owner has recently installed a lockset on the front door that does away with keys. We arrived, went up the elevator and were in the unit in less than two minutes from locking the car. No need to check in with an office, or worry about taking keys with you to the pool, beach or excursion. Very convenient.
During the day, we could see the whales breaching off the coast and the beautiful sunsets from the lanai, and a double rainbow one day that arched from Lanai to Molokai. Almost as spectacular were the stars on the clear nights. I would not hesitate to recommend this condo to friends or family, and only hope we get the chance to venture to Maui again soon, as I know where I want home base to be.
Our family (2 adults & kids-18 & 14) spent 10 days on Maui and at this Condo, and LOVED IT! Doug & Linda were very accommodating & hospitable answering all of our questions, providing brochures, restaurants & activities to consider while on Maui. The condo was comfortable and stocked with extra pillows, snorkel gear, and towels for the beach! The grounds were constantly taken care of as well as the BBQ and pool area, which were cleaned on a daily basis. The snorkeling just outside the condo was amazing, with an abundance of marine life: fish, coral, and an occasional sea turtle! The condo is "beach front" and with their 180 degree view from their lanai, made our meals spectacular including the sunrise/sunsets, and frequent visits from the sea turtles on the beach in front of the condo. The only draw back (NOT the fault of the owners!) was navigating to the beach across the staircase, which was challenging at times. However, the condo itself, and all its updates & amenities, made this issue just a nuisance to us. The condo is close enough to the hustle and bustle of Kaanapali & Lahaina, but we were looking for peace & quiet, and it was EXACTLY what we received. For our family, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again- truly a memorable & positive experience- from booking, staying, and creating such wonderful memories. Thank-you Doug & Linda so much for opening your home to us; we had an AWESOME and memorable vacation, and absolutely loved your condo!
We took our family of 5 on this trip to Maui and could not have picked a better place to stay. It was a beautiful view from the lanai with rainbows and sea turtles everyday. The view of Lanai and Molokai with the sunset are wonderful. The pool and grounds were kept very clean as I watched them clean it everyday. It was really nice that this condo is fully stocked so you don't have to worry about anything but just enjoying your vacation. The owners were very accommodating , responded to questions promptly, and in met our needs. We thank them tremendously for making our vacation very easy and relaxing. We will be returning to this condo soon.
We (four adults) truly enjoyed the condo, the pool and the view. We spent the month of March at Hololani and we were very impressed by the comfort and amenities of our home away from home. We had daily shows off the lanai thanks to the incredible view and the "performing" whales and turtles! The condo has everything needed for a comfortable, relaxing vacation and the owners are especially helpful - offering great suggestions for dining out and sightseeing as well as personal contact if needed. This complex has a wonderful pool and barbecue area where we enjoyed relaxing, swimming and getting to know other residents of the complex while sharing Maui experiences! The condo is located on the beach - a good place for walking, snorkeling and exploring! This makes for a perfect family or adult vacation!
My mom and I have been coming to this particular condo in February for a number of years and we love it. Clean and comfortable, it has stunning views off the lanai. February is a great time for whale and turtle watching. We usually kick back and do a lot of reading and cooking for ourselves in the condo or out on the grills. Folks are friendly. Several places to eat and shop are within walking distance of a few blocks. This is a fifth floor unit and the closest to the elevator.
Great condo with exceptional views. We had a great time and found everything convenient and comfortable. Great place to just hang out and enjoy the beach. We snorkeled right out front and saw turtles everyday. The mornings and sunsets were amazing. Most evenings we cooked and ate in to enjoy the sunset view. The grills next to the pool were great. The property as a whole is well maintained and the people very friendly. Space was comfortable and decorated nicely. Although it was warm the breeze was always present to cool things down. The location is convenient and quiet with places to eat and play within walking distance. A few minutes driving takes you to the much busier Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua areas for beach activities, shopping and dining. We would definitely go back to this wonderful condo.
