About Karen Newton

We; Karen & Bob love to go to Maui, we started traveling there when our Daughter, Katie was only 6 months old, she is now a college graduate! It is a great place to share with family and friends. Our family memories are so enriched by our Maui trips! We are self employed, the condos are our retirement plan, someday they will be paid for and perhaps we can retire here on Maui and have our dogs here with us on the beach, it is a magical place for us. We love to go to Keawakapu Beach for long walks in the morning and evenings we go to Kam III for wonderful sunset walks. I cook a lot and the kitchen is very well stocked. One of the best parts of Hale Kamaole is the evening bar-b-ques. There are always friendly people to chat with and so much fun is shared.

Karen Newton purchased this condo in 2002

Why Karen Newton chose Maui

We have been traveling to Maui for over 24 years. Fell in love with it, when our daughter was a tiny tot. We first went to West Maui, too much rain! We ended up in South Kihei, sunny sky, wonderful beaches and hardly any rain! Located 3 blocks from Wailea, we get all of the great amenities of Wailea, at lower Kihei prices! My husband and I get great satisfaction helping folks enjoy their Maui vacation and the feedback we receive from our happy renters. We first stayed at Kamaole Sands & were going to buy there, however, there was an open house at Hale Kamaole (next door to each other) and I really liked the condo so much better! It is open concept for the living and dining area and all of the Lanais look over the center gardens, much lower density complex with beautiful tropical plantings and a lot of grassy areas too.

What makes this condo unique

Kamaole III Beach Park is the best, our condo at HK is right there, easy 2 minute walk from the front door. Wonderful swimming beach great for snorkeling or boogie boarding there are even lifeguards too! And when the day at the beach is done you can have a Mai Tai and watch the sunset while making a great dinner at the B.B.Q s, They are 4 to an island with fabulous sunset views. We have met wonderful people from around the world, all having a great time. There are many returnees year after year, who welcome old friends and make new friends too. It is a very family friendly complex, very low density, beautiful tropical gardens. The Conch Band is open to all, every evening young and the young at heart meet by the lower pool to blow the conch horns as the sun slips below the horizon into the ocean, it is a party every sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love it here on Maui. Everything is so beautiful. Your condo is amazing and we love the pool! The views are beautiful from the balcony as we watched sunsets and whales there.

Perfect accommodation for Destination Wedding - June 2016

  • 5 of 5

Very special occasion for our son's wedding on Maui.

Fully equipped kitchen to enable us to cater to the many visitors that dropped in to Hale Kamaole prior to the wedding.

Excellently presented large condo with lovely decor and quality chattels. Clean and well maintained. Extremely well stocked pantry and fridge when we arrived.

Great position on the upper tier of the HK complex.

Karen, and her manager, were very responsive and quickly followed up on the one or two queries we had.

Hale Kamaole is our favourite holiday destination having been here many times since 1987. Good swimming beaches right over the road and we again saw turtles there in waist deep water.

Easy walks to 5 Palms restaurant (great happy hours) and Freds or Moose McGillicuddys (2 good bars) and Cafe O Lei (great sushi)

This is an excellent condo in a great location that we would readily recommend to anyone.

Great location, well kept, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Thank you!

We stayed with our adult children and truly appreciated the view of the ocean, the clean well appointed condo, and the proximity to beaches, shops and restaurants.

The little extras such as clean beach towels, boogie boards, coolers, beach chairs, etc are a lovely bonus!

We would certainly recommend this condo.

Love south Kehei, and plan to be back!

Great Location and well kept!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family of five. It has a great view of the ocean but is far enough away from the road that you didn't hear the traffic. Close walk to the beach, we got the pick of the beach since we could get there early enough. It is well equipped with all of our needs, nice not having to pack beach towels! The wash machine quit working and Karen and her on site manager were on it and got it repaired quickly. There is a laundry place on site so if we had to we still could have done laundry (Karen even offered to refund us if we did). At first I was worried about the strict pool rules for the kids, but our kids did fine and were not to loud. Basically no horse play or toys in the pool. Pool was nice but we spent most of our time on the beach. Thank you Karen for a great place to stay while visiting Maui. We will be back for sure!

Clean, well kept, centrally located venue.

Cannot review this particular unit as we did not get to stay here. 3 days prior to our departure, the owner cancelled our booking, but did locate and arrange an alternate comparable unit in the same facility.

Owner's Response: I was so sorry to have to move you! The refrigerator was running continuously and I was concerned it would die at any moment. So I made the choice to cancel your reservation (after I made sure there was an equally nice condo for you to stay in), I even paid $200 more to the other owner out of my own pocket so you would have a nice condo to stay in. Home Depot delivered the new refrigerator on Tues. (Which would have been in the middle of your stay...)

Family Friendly, good view, and lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Maui! My wife found this unit and was very happy working with Karen as she was very friendly and quick to respond!

We travled with our kids and other family and we had lots of room. There were 2 bedrooms, 1 loft with 2 twin beds, and a couch downstairs. The unit had lots of boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear, sand toys, towels, and other items. The Hale Kamaole complex was very well maintained, the landscaping was nice and the pool and community BBQs were cleaned every night. The unit was also nicely stocked with towels and bedding. We cooked most of our meals and felt like the kitchen was very adequate.

The unit is a close walk to the beach and couple min drive to everything in S Kehei. Something I didn't realize and wasn't an issue was that the main floor is cooled with ceiling fans and by keeping the slider to the lanai and front door (there is a locking storm door) open. There is A/C in the bedrooms but the loft did get a little warm at times but didn't bother our kids because of the fans. There was almost always a slight breeze and this method of cooling seemed quite common there and nice.

You can see the ocean from the lanai and look out over the pool. If you are looking for reasonable, family friendly place, close to kid friendly beaches, great snorkeling and everything else in Maui then stop right here! Contact Karen, she is a pleasure to work with.

Hale Kamaole Apt. 250 Upper Pool, Great Ocean View! Mornings walks on Keawakapu Beach are the best! We enjoy Sunsets at Kamaole III Beach Park directly across from the condo complex. Just an easy walk to the Shops of Wailea, where Island Time at Tommy Bahamas is always lots of fun and of course yummy! Many local restaurants and great shopping are just a few blocks from our condo.
