Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


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 Lahaina

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!

Unbelievable Views - Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This unit has unbelievable views and a huge patio. The pictures don't do it justice and feels much bigger than the pictures show. Vanessa was great to deal with and had no issues whatsoever getting into the unit. Would highly recommend this unit!

I Miss Not Staying Here!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your condo. Everything was perfect.

The views and sounds of the ocean from the balcony to the daily visit from the sea turtles and the park like pool setting will make for lasting memories.

The size of the room, amenities and location of the condo helped create a flawless vacation.

Relaxing oceanfront condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in Hawaii. Very relaxing. Not air conditioned but the trade winds kept the cool air moving through the unit. Super comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen. Owner was responsive when we had questions.

Simply Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The unit is absolutely beautiful and the property is very nice with just about every amenity you could ask for. The unit has everything you can need and the owners have put together a wonder reference guide for guests which we used with great success. The bed was very comfortable and the linens & towels were high quality. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you should need for cooking most meals. There is a coffee maker and even a blender & toaster! This property is on the West side of Maui, so make sure you plan on enough time for your visits to central & East Maui. Our road to Hana day was 12 hours round trip including all of our stops. Your mileage may vary. But it was delightful coming back to such a wonderful place. If this unit fits your group & your itinerary do not hesitate to book it!

Our condo was perfect! Everything was clean, in excellent condition, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The location is walking distance to groceries, restaurants, a park, and sandy beaches.

The property has laundry facilities and an elevator. The grounds have a pool, grills, and a large raised deck area with views of Lanai and Molokai Islands.

Our condo kitchen was well equipped, and we were happy to find a small cooler for our day trips. The bath had a full shower, and a generous sized counter top.

TV and WiFi were provided.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially sitting on the lanai and watching for whales. Turtles swim along the rock wall. And the ocean view is amazing.

Thank you for sharing your condo with us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again.
