Gorgeous, spacious and intriguing

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property if you're looking for complete relaxation with adventure at your doorstep. The home sits on a hill overlooking Maui's finest sunset, is fully stocked and the design is thoughtful, luxurious and furnished with authentic touches of Bali . We were easily able to access all the adventures and beauty of the island from this location as well as convenient grocery stores and restaurants while feeling secluded and serene. My husband and I, along with our two adult children and their spouses had ample space to enjoy each other as well as private areas to read or watch the ocean with whale sightings at a distance. Kat and her husband Don couldn't have been more welcoming, accommodating and friendly.

Paradise, and we hope to return!

The best.

  • 5 of 5

My family’s stay at the Hale Makoa Kai estate was absolutely spectacular. The property and house exceeded all of our expectations, and was the highlight of our vacation. Maui has many incredible beaches and sights to see, however our best days were spent lounging by the pool at this property.

Some favourite features:

-Stunning views - the ocean and island of Lanai can be seen from anywhere in the back yard. We enjoyed watching the breathtaking sunset every night.

-Massive infinity pool and hottub with a view of the ocean- just perfect!

-Spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas- we were 7 adults, and there was plenty of space for everyone.

-Outdoor bathroom features- 2 open air showers and 2 bathtubs were so relaxing!

-Expansive outdoor living space- there was abundant space and furniture for lounging and we enjoyed sharing meals at the large outdoor dining table

-Location- 2-minute drive to the ocean and 10 minutes to Lahaina made it very convenient to plan day trips and spend time exploring Maui

-Fully equipped kitchen- we made meals every day and the kitchen was stocked with all of the kitchen gear we needed

-Friendly kitty named Nugget- this affectionate cat loved to snuggle and hang out by the pool with us, which made us feel right at home!

-Accommodating host- Kat was a wonderful and helpful host. She was always available to answer questions and she addressed small problems quickly (although we had very few).

Overall, staying at the Hale Makoa Kai estate felt like paradise. We enjoyed every minute and were sad to leave.

"World-Class" residence . . . simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

A letter I shared with Kat, the owner of this residence.


First, on behalf of our entire family I want to again pass on to you our sincerest condolences for the loss of your father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these difficult days. We're sorry we missed meeting you last week.

We had the pleasure of staying on your property last week and I just wanted to drop you a note thanking-you for making our trip so wonderful. Simply put, your property was "spectacular" and exceeded all of our expectations. Please pass on a "thanks" to your husband for filling in for you. . . he was very accommodating and helpful in familiarizing us with the property upon our arrival.

We have visited Maui many times but this was our first venture into staying in a private home. After our first day, we all looked at each other and said, "the photos and descriptions of this venue do not do it justice . . . from the view, to this marvelous home, to all the "little things" that were provided during our stay . . . just world-class!" Half-way through our 10 day stay, I asked my children why they weren't doing more activities . . . their response . . . "we have the most spectacular view and this is the best pool ever . . . !!! They just did not want to venture away from your property.

Kat, Mahalo . . . you have made possible a lifetime memory of our favorite place on earth.

Absolutely stunning house and perfect set up

  • 5 of 5

First off, even the beautiful photos and ample description don't do the home justice. Front the front door to the view beyond the pool, it is all stunning.

The good -

- The view - Breathtaking. Unbelievable. Gorgeous. You can not get this view at a resort on the beach. Sitting at the dining table, sun setting over your private pool, high up on the hill looking down at the water.

- The location - moderate walk to a popular beach, just a few miles (Uber available) to the heart of town. We averaged between $10-20 each way to anywhere on the west side of the island using uberx.

- The set up - Perfect for our two couples with plenty of room to spread out. We have two kids and plan to return because the house would be perfect for a family or two. Two families of three or four would be comfortable.

- Outside area - For us, the large patio with VERY comfortable sun chairs were utilized many hours a day. The hot tub took a few minutes to warm up but once up and running... amazing. The yard is large enough for kids to run and the pool has several large steps for them to use without being overwhelmed. In comparison to the nearby resorts - the space is unbeatable, the sun is unobstructed, no annoying neighbors in the cabana next to you, and the drink prices are what it costs at the grocery store with unparalleled privacy.

- The kitchen - we've rented many houses and this kitchen was better appointed than 99% of them. We cooked many meals from fish on the grill to breakfast burritos and didn't find anything missing.

- The master bed/bath - unbelievable. Think 5 start penthouse suite. Huge, very comfortable bed, large sofa, coffee table, large TV, sitting chairs and still enough room to play basketball. You can see the two vanity bathroom in the pictures, but the size is even larger. The closet is a long walk in, big enough for a year's stay. The shower is a three headed room large enough for two people without ever bumping into each other and direct access via two glass doors to the large soaking tub outside (but private).

- Other bedrooms - larger than standard hotel rooms with matching bathrooms, both with semi-outdoor showers. Very well appointed.

The bad

- Honestly, nothing. We experience one issue that was completely out of the hands of the owners, but they responded quickly to solve the problem as fast as they could. I'd label this one as "good" in my book.

We plan to return ASAP with no hesitation.

Hale Makoa Kai Estate (Lahaina, Maui) stay in March 2016

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for 10 days for a family vacation. We were 5 adults and one baby. Our stay at Hale Makoa Kai Estate was wonderful. The description of the property was accurate; we found it to be exactly as described. The owners were gracious hosts. They made us feel very welcome and were readily available. At one point, the flush mechanism in one of the toilets broke and the owners fixed it right away. The house was immaculate and fully equipped for our needs. We had three cars and there was plenty of room to park them. The view is fantastic and the overall atmosphere is one of calm relaxation. The pool is spectacular. Everyone in my family loved our stay at Hale Makoa Kai Estate and we recommend it highly. The property does have one drawback; when the time comes for you to leave it, you will be sad.
