About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Reef-surfing sea turtles, spectacular sunsets, all the colors of the ocean and the rustle of palms overhead ... Those are just a few of the daily sights and sounds you'll enjoy in this top floor, oceanfront condo located halfway between the resort communities of Kaanapali and Kapalua.

Recently remodeled, the condo offers travertine tiled floors, tropical furnishings, mahogany and granite kitchen with stainless appliances, walk-in shower and ample storage. Clever sliding plantation doors between the bedroom and living area can be closed for maximum privacy or left open so that you can watch the rising sun set the palms aglow outside.

Whales Ahoy!

Between November and April our guests get to enjoy the spectacular sight of the annual Humpback Whale migration. These awesome creatures come to Maui from Alaska every year to give birth and one of their favorite locations to do so is right out front of the condo in the wide channel between West Maui and the island of Lanai and Molokai. In the peak months (Jan - March), we can count on seeing dozens of whales an hour without leaving the condo!

Hale Ono Loa is a mid-century, low-rise condo complex that underwent a complete exterior renovation in 2010. Guests are able to enjoy a shared pool surrounded by palms, access to the ocean, sundecks at both pool level and alongside the ocean and beautiful tropical gardens filled with fragrant colorful blooms all year long. There's off-street parking, shared gas BBQs, shuffle board court and an interesting mix of full-time residents and vacationing visitors. Each condo is individually owned and independently rented, providing a low-key, peaceful alternative to the brand-name 'resort' experience.

About The Owner

We love to swim, snorkel and scuba dive so Hawaii has been a favorite vacation destination for years. When we came to stay at Hale Ono Loa in West Maui in January 2007, we just knew it was the place for us. It's conveniently close to Lahaina and golfing at Kapalua or Kaanapali and BEST of all, it's right on the ocean. We can fall asleep listening to waves and wake up to surfing sea turtles.

When the Pacific Northwest is winter-dreary there's no better place than the lushly landscaped gardens around the condo and the azure blue sea right out front! We hope you'll consider staying in this place we love so much. Aloha! Vanessa & Greg

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Maui

There's just so much we enjoy about Hale Ono Loa. We love the reefs out front which fill with green sea turtles when the tide is high and always guarantee colorful fish when we're snorkeling. The ocean-side sundecks offer comfortable lounges for sunning or shady retreats for watching the whales. A thrice-weekly Farmers' Market is just a couple minute's walk down the street and it's only another short stroll to the head of the boardwalk which continues nearly 5 miles through the entire Kaanapali Resort area.

What makes this condo unique

We tried to anticipate our guests' every need and desire when appointing our condo. From the 'Heavenly Bed' king size mattress on a romantic sleigh bed to a fully equipped kitchen; comfort, ease and privacy are what we hope our guests enjoy when staying with us.

Pack your lunch in one of the coolers and head out to the many wonderful nearby beaches. You'll find beach chairs, sun umbrella, mats and some toys stored on the lanai. Come home and shower off the day's activities in the travertine-tiled bath before slipping one of the Hawaiian music CDs in the entertainment center and watching the sun set from the comfortably-furnished lanai.

Does dinner in sound like a good idea tonight? Why not pick up a piece of ahi from the Fish Market and grill it up on the pool-side BBQ. Listen to the palms rustle overhead and plan tomorrow's adventures with the guide books we've provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in your well-appointed condo! The views were spectacular -- waves, turtles, whales, ships, etc... We cooked most of our meals and your kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed. (note to readers: a Safeway card is a MUST for better grocery prices. We saved a great deal of money using it in 4 weeks). Thank you for making your condo available to us. We'll be back!

Great view and relaxing ocean waves

The condo was very clean and had an amazing view of the ocean. It was so relaxing to listen to the waves at night. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to cook breakfast each day very easily. Just a suggestion for future guests: it would be great to stock 4 beach towels as we used them every day and even though we hung them to dry after using, they were still damp each morning. I know this is because of the humidity but it would have been nice to have a few extra! Thanks for the great stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed Hale Ono Loa #407. It was very well equipped and we loved the ocean view where you could sit and watch the sea turtles. This unit was very clean and recently updated. The owners were attentive and helpful and we would not hesitate to book with them again. The unit is located just minutes away from Lahaina and all the shopping as well as a diverse offering of eateries. This was a great value and made for an enjoyable vacation.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

407 Hale Ono Loa was an incredible experience from start to finish. The space was so well thought out, from the fully stocked kitchen essentials to the beach gear to the amazing bed. We felt that there was nothing else that we needed. As other people mentioned, there is no AC--and this proved to be no problem at all. The tradewinds created a constant breeze so falling asleep to comfort and ocean waves was a nightly occurrence. The location was wonderful, close to what is needed and far enough that it was peaceful and out of tourist chaos. Overall, we would give more stars if we could. 10/10 stay.

Really enjoyed our stay here. This Condo had been updated through out and is very lovely & comfy. I found that Vanessa is a great host and very easy to talk to. We found everything in the Condo that we needed, from cooking utensils, spices, everything you need to take to the beach, plus cleaning supplies to clean up the sand we brought back from the beach and the bathroom was well stocked. The Condo was in a great location, close to our favorite beaches and restaurants and not far from Lahaina. A wonderful breeze at night and the bed and pillows are so comfy. The Condo area was very quite and clean, of course the ocean was right there and we watched the sunset every-night. *The BIRDS, I love birds, in the morning they sing to you, lots of Doves and other beautiful sounding birds. I did see a Turtle form our patio! Very relaxing here, I would come back and stay any time. Thanks!
