Overview

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

It's all about the best location and the classic beauty of an elegant remodel. You can't get any closer to the ocean than Hale Ono Loa. My home offers a million dollar ocean view, and excellent snorkeling just steps away.

Hale Ono Loa is located in Honokowai (west Maui) just minutes from the Kaanapali resort area and the Kapalua golf courses. We are surrounded by the amazing beaches at Napili Bay, D.T. Fleming, Kapalua Bay and Kaanapali black rock. You can also stroll to the beach next door. Duke’s Last Resort at the new Honua Kai resort, and Honokowai Beach Park for families, are both a short five minute walk. My condo is ten minutes from Lahania and five minutes to the West Maui Airport. Shops, a supermarket, and restaurants are just a few blocks away.

My home was recently remodeled, and is regarded as one of the nicest in the area. An upgraded bathroom and kitchen, along with beautiful bamboo floors, lend my home a feeling of elegance and serenity. There is a ceiling fan in every room that catches the famous Maui trade-winds and keeps you cool year-round. Along with the professionally appointed furnishings and decor, you will find my home fully equipped with all of the amenities for your comfort, including a luxury pillowtop mattress for extra comfort. I took great care in selecting high quality furnishings, with the expectation that my guests and I will be comfortable and happy to spend time in my home.

Our association completed a renovation of the entire complex in 2010, with Hale Ono Loa now described as the crown jewel of the oceanfront properties located along the west Maui beachfront. The most amazing aspect of Hale Ono Loa are the jaw-dropping sundecks, which are practically on top of the ocean. There is a set of stairs to the right of the sundecks, which takes you directly down to the reef for snorkeling. We even have our own turtles 'in residence'! During the whale season (November through April) you can watch whales and spinning dolphins from your lanai, or the sundecks.

The private large pool and sun deck area is surrounded with large coconut palms and numerous tropical plants. These tropical gardens are well maintained, conveying the feeling that you are a part of Old Hawaii. This area is located on the ocean and will provide you with many hours of comfort and relaxation.

Maui is the perfect place for your vacation, wedding celebration or honeymoon in paradise! Hale Ono Loa provides all of the comforts and conveniences you will need during your stay at my home.

About Kristin Mihelic

I'm Kristin, and I first visited Hale Ono Loa seven years ago. I've traveled all over, but it's true what they say, that once you've been to Maui you never want to go anywhere else. Maui is blessed with stunning diversity, and West Maui is distinct with its tropical foliage and world famous beaches. When you're here, it's really about a state of mind and serenity that few vacation destinations can offer. You can be as active as you like, or do nothing at all, either way it will be the time of your life.

Kristin Mihelic purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kristin Mihelic chose Maui

I wanted to be away from the crowds of the larger resort communities. Staying at Hale Ono Loa, I often have the beach just to myself. At the same time, I am just minutes away from great restaurants and nightlife.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite aspect is the snorkeling on our reef just yards away. We have two gorgeous sundecks and seawall that are pretty much in the middle of the ocean. There's a set of stairs that takes you right down to the reef for snorkeling and swimming with the turtles. Also, my lanai is beautiful, especially during whale season. From my lanai, you can see whales breeching during the season.

A very nice quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Booked this for a different date and the owner was gracious enough to work with me on not just one but two changes due to last minute add on of sister and husband joining us. Ended up with a five day stay (just two staying in the condo) A nice location on the beach with oceans and pool view. Convenient access to three day a week farmers market and a couple of restaurants. A few minutes from Nipili beach who's is great for swimming snorkel and turtle watch. The unit is good size for two, full kitchen and nice balcony.

Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is as the owner describes it - right at the ocean, and we actually DID see humpback whales right from the lanai/balcony! We also saw many sea turtles from the communal deck right above the water. Things were very clean and well maintained, and everything we needed was already supplied. We had a couple of questions for Kristin, who responded to our emails and texts right away. Would definitely recommend.

We splurged and had an amazing dinner at Merriman's but also enjoyed Hula Grill - their less-expensive restaurant right on the sand near Whaler's Village. Best Mai Tai (most expensive, but really worth it) was at the Ritz Carlton.

The beach we enjoyed most for gentle waters was Napili Bay, but we also loved the beach in front of the Sheraton, where we had a lot of fun having lunch at their outside bar.

Would definitely stay here again!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hale Ona Loa for 2 months. Everything that Kristin provided and told us and more was quite accurate. EG, places to snorkel, good restaurants and ample whale watchings. All the directions and advise to different venues she provided us were accurate and made it quite easy for us to find our way around. The property was very well maintained and clean and if an issue did come up it was dealt with immediately. The location is very quiet and one had a choice to either relax by the pool or on the upper deck viewing turtles, whales and ocean sunsets.

We enjoyed restaurants in our vicinity, Duke's, Merryman's, Mamas Ribs, Dollies and Gazebo as well as Kimo's, Fish House and Captain Jack's in Lahaina.

Would definetly recommend this property to anyone.

Thank you ever so much Kristin for providing your "home away from home" to us as it made for a a very wonderful time for us. We made many new friends during the course of our stay.

Again thank you very very much.

Great Accomodation in West Maui !!!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect! Good location and good size one-bedroom apartment. The unit had all we needed to have a comfortable stay. The bed and sofa-bed were comfortable. The bathroom shower was great. Kitchen was well supplied with large and small appliances. Lots of towels and linens were handy. The place was quiet at night and sleeping well was not an issue. Actually, we left the patio glass door open all night long to have some the sea breeze in. Beautiful outdoor pool and garden facing the ocean. We loved to watch the sea turtles doing their own things in the water.

We had a wonderful time in Maui during the 2015 Christmas break. We really enjoyed staying at your apartment and will definitively contact you next time we visit Maui.

Mahalo,

P

Best kept secret on Maui - Hale Ono Loa

  • 4 of 5

This is the best kept secret on Maui!!! With a million-dollar view, this condo is certainly comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen -- an all around bargain. It's easy walking distance to the farmer's market, gourmet coffee, Honokowai Beach Park - and just a little farther to the grocery store or a breakfast restaurant.

Parking was never a problem. We felt safe and secure because the pool area is accessible only with a key, as are the laundry facilities and recycling area. The flowers and trees on the entire property are well maintained.

This vacation was for our 16th anniversary vacation and we stayed 11 nights. Many of the days, we saw sea turtles right at the ocean's edge.

One evening during our stay, the property manager hosted a pool party with music. Everyone was asked to bring appetizers and we were invited! We were able to meet some of the residents/guests. We sang and danced the evening away on the beautiful pool deck. This only added to our already magical vacation.
