About Barbara

My family found Nani Kai Hale in 1987. The following year, #309 went for sale and they purchased it sight unseen! Upcountry Maui became my permanent home in 2003. Living on island allows me to manage the condo and assist our guests directly. I love living here and enjoy sharing our favorite place with others, especially those seeing Maui for the first time. I also love, love, love diving! Ask about our favorite reefs - for diving or snorkeling.

Barbara purchased this condo in 1988

Why Barbara chose Maui

One look off the lanai and you will know why. Direct oceanfront, gorgeous sunsets, beautiful walking beach, whales during whale season, great owners, great guests, pupu parties, donut days, holiday pot lucks.

What makes this condo unique

3 miles of walkable, white sandy beach right outside your door! Not only is the property 'direct ocean front', we have the unique opportunity for front row seating during whale season. Our bay is a favorite spot for whales and their calves from December through April every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your awesome condo with us. We totally enjoyed the calming sound of the ocean waves, walking the beach and watching people. A perfect place to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Thank you for your hospitality.

We have stayed at Nani Kai Hale six times since 1985. This was the first time we stayed in an ocean front unit. 309 was perfect. The view from the lanai was amazing. The design of his unit makes the most use of the space available. I highly recommend Nani Kai Hale and I will be staying in this unit again. Thank you!

Perfection In Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

The first time I stayed at Nani Kai Hale, I was understandably impressed. But, after the THIRD time staying at this amazing condo, it still bowls me over.

This condo is absolutely the best place to watch canoe races, sailboats in the sunset and all manner of activities or just kick back, relax and get some sun. I have yet to stay during whale watching season but I'm sure this would be the perfect place.

Barbara has outfitted the condo with everything (and more) that you would ever need. If it's not there, you probably don't really need it. Even on vacation though, keeping in touch is important and here the wireless WI-FI connection is superb.

When the tradewinds die down, the air conditioning is a welcome relief. But , the absolute "cherry on the top" is the lanai with an ubstructed view of the ocean and all it has to offer. Simply stated, you can't go wrong with this one!

Perfect vacation rental. Barbara thought of absolutely everything that we might need for our vacation. She adds so many personal, special touches and is a fabulous communicator. The condo was clean, convenient, and beautiful. We loved mornings and evenings on the balcony listening to the waves, and enjoying the amazing views. The common areas are very well kept and the community is quiet and friendly. Absolutely a perfect stay and we would definitely book again. Thank you!

This was our Paradise on Earth location for many previous summer vacations, (we think 1975 was the first time we stayed at the Nani ). The Nani Kai was were we celebrated many Anniversaries & Birthdays with world-wide friends! After a number of years of absence due to circumstances we decided to return to celebrate our "45th". How wonderful to reconnect with Barbara and her precious Wally. She is very special & we were thrilled to hug her!

After a long day of travel, a quick late night stop at Safeway & learning that you can't buy liquor after 11 PM...we opened the door to our Paradise home & there waiting an Anniversary Gift & a welcome "Cheers".

Our three weeks was relaxing, Barbara was just a phone call away if we needed ANYTHING! What could we possibly need! The Condo was even better equipped then we remembered, a true home away from home.

We chose to dine in most of the time, we had our own "million dollar" view, we'd Bar B Q and then sit on the Lanai looking out to sea thinking how lucky we were to be here!

On Barbara's recommendation we celebrated at the 5 Palms Restaurant. Perfect!

Sunday morning worships were at Keawala'i Congregational Church at Makena. So many fond memories from years gone by.

We played golf at Pukalaani and Maui Nui.

A once in a lifetime opportunity, at the point near Paie & Mamma's: 25+ turtles resting on the beach along with a sunning Monk Seal. As you wandered the beach in front of the condo you could watch the Rays & other ocean creatures frolicking in the waves.

Barbara, dear friend, a HUGE Mahalo for making this vacation & Anniversay so memorable! Will we celebrate "50" at the Nani...sure do hope so!!!!

Lots of Love.

Perfect - Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than the pictures show! We loved the incredible view! We started and ended each day with a relaxing stroll on the beach and sometimes felt we had it all to ourselves. It was so romantic and peaceful and private. We woke up each morning and fell asleep each night to the sweet sound of the waves. You can see the ocean from every room! Also, it is the perfect location on the island as you are really close to many wonderful restaurants, beaches, snorkeling sites, shopping sites, ....just an easy drive to most anything you could want to do! We would make the short drive to many busy places during the day and then come home to a little bit of heaven, peaceful and relaxing, at night! We made forever memories in this place! The condo has been updated and was spotless clean when we arrived. Everything we needed was pretty much provided there outside of groceries. The owner was great with arranging our stay and was very accommodating to anything we might have needed. We just loved it and hope to come back! It was the perfect location and the perfect vacation! Having two full baths was great and a real time saver. We appreciate that the owner is willing to share this beautiful home with others so we get to enjoy it too! If you are looking for the perfect place and this condo is available, book it. They fill up very quickly; I know as we almost missed being able to stay here because of people booking so far in advance. Hope you enjoy it like we did!
