About Betty Jansen

The Hulapalm is owned and operated by the Jansen Ohana. We are a Maui family and have been here for many years. Betty was born on Oahu and grew up on Maui. George's family moved to Maui when he was 11. We met at the Kamaole III beach park at a sunset birthday party 18 years ago and have been together ever since. We are now raising two kids of our own here in Kihei. We love the quality of life here and we strive to provide you with the best accommodations to make sure you have a wonderful stay during your time on Maui.

Betty Jansen purchased this condo in 2004

Why Betty Jansen chose Maui

The Island Surf building is a landmark in Kihei. It is located across from the infamous Cove park. The Cove has a lovely beach and is a great place for surfing and water sports. Built in 1973 the Island Surf has been very well maintained. It has elevators and plenty of parking. There is also a nice pool and BBQ area located on the same floor just down the hall from the Hulapalm. For your convenience the ground floor of the building is filled with shops such as scuba, surfing, salon, dinning, bikes, and more. The location for vacation necessities such as coffee, grocery shopping, restaurants, dancing, bars, and more are all within a few minutes walk. Across the street is Kalama park offering beautiful walks, runs, or bike rides along the ocean front. There are public tennis courts, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, and even an ocean front skating rink. If you are so inclined you could easily take a cab, shuttle, or the Maui Bus to the Hulapalm from the airport and not need a rental car. Most everything you need is within walking distance and the Bus system can provide transportation to most attactions on the island. Within minutes of The Hulapalm you can find all you need to create your perfect Maui vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The Hulapalm is a wonderful place to spend a vacation. The unit has many comforts and conveniences. The layout is very spacious for two. The front lanai is a great spot to check the surf, whale watch, people watch, or take in the sunset. The kitchen is fully equipped with new kitchen appliances, stove, refrigerator, microwave, table, coffeemaker, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The king bed is very comfortable and relaxing. The unit itself is very cool, quite, and private. We take great care to keep the unit clean and well maintained for our guests.

Everything as expected at Hulapalm

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient and accessible to many stores and restaurants. We especially enjoyed walking across the street to see the surfers and sunsets across the water. Even saw some whales from the shore. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and completely furnished with everything we needed for nine days. We would definitely stay there again.

It's an older property but has been well maintained. The pool area is very nice.

  • 5 of 5

Overall it is a great place for a holiday. Several shops, bars and restaurants within less than a 10 minute walk. A large grocery store is also within a 10 minute walk. There's a park right across the street with beach volleyball courts and even a horseshoe pitch. I sat on the lanai every morning and watched the surfers and stand up paddle boarders play in the surf. The only negative was the traffic noise; but it never bothered us sleeping because it died down after 8 and the bedroom, with a very comfortable king size bed, was in the rear of the unit.

We are very satisfied with the stay we had and, if we return to Maui will stay here again.

Betty, the owner, was most accommodating. She stopped in the first day to see if we needed anything and the couple of things we asked for were supplied the next day.

Great location. Nicely stocked.

  • 4 of 5

This condo gave us everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. Clean, well stocked kitchen, with beach chairs, noodles umbrellas etc.

We found it very entertaining to sit on the lanai and watch the sand volley ball games at the park and the surfers in the bay behind them. The traffic noise could be a little much at times but the noise did not carry through to the bedroom. Super location close to groceries, bars and restaurants and right across from Kalama Park, a great place to watch sunsets. Loved it!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Hulapalm. It felt like home the minute we walked in the door. It had most of the basics that we needed for a simple and relaxing vacation. It's the perfect place for a romantic get away.

The view is beautiful and has easy access to restaurants, beaches, car rentals, groceries and more. A short drive in either direction offers even more options to explore Kihei or the nearby areas. I recommend reading the guest book when you first arrive for great ideas on restaurants and activities. If we come to Kihei again we will definitely look Betty and George's Hulapalm condo up again! You won't be disappointed staying here. It was our first experience using VRBO and we are very pleased with the entire experience.
