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 Kihei

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.

                                                                    This was an amazing place to stay at and we were so happy. The owner has great communication from the very beginning, the location of the condo is the best and the condo itself is equipped with everything you need. From beach chairs to sunscreen lotion and from washer and dryer to oven, fridge, stove etc.

                                                                    It has a beautiful view with easy access to stores. The pool setting which is on the same floor as the condo is beautiful as well!

                                                                    Mahalo nui loa for accommodating us. We will be back for sure!


                                                                    Betty is awesome. Very quick to reply messages and just a phone call away.

                                                                    Chris V.

                                                                    We loved our stay here. I surprised my wife with a last minute trip to Maui from California for our 1 year anniversary. I found this stay because of the good reviews. I carefully read all of them and sure enough it is what I expected it to be, if not better. The view is beautiful from the living room. There is a washer and a dryer which was very convenient. The place is clean, well maintained and in a centralized spot in the island. There was also essentials available like water, sunscreen, cooking items. I had to change my vacation dates last minute and Betty worked with me and was kind enough to change my rental dates as well and work around my inconvenient last minute changes. Very sweet person, we’ll definitely be back a second time and book this place again!

                                                                    Maui stay

                                                                    Tony D.

                                                                    Likes : convenient location, partial view of ocean while sitting on couch. Bedroom opposite main road, comfortable bed, elevator available , ample parking, great shower pressure, air conditioning except for bedroom, quiet evenings in the building.

                                                                    Dislikes: Unit could use some remodeling and furniture upgrades, lots of street noise with heavy traffic in front, shower contains lots of mold.

                                                                    In summary we enjoyed our stay.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Thank you for staying at our condo. Many condos are located across from the coastal road and beaches from south kihei road. The unit has a lovely partial ocean view.

                                                                    We have done some remodeling to the unit.

                                                                    The shower has black grouting, not mold.

                                                                    Aloha from the Valley Isle

                                                                    local vibe and comfy bed

                                                                    Teneal J.

                                                                    This is a perfect place to get a more local vibe. It's not a fancy place if that is what you are looking for, but it cute, clean and the bed is comfy. The beach is across the street, which you can see right from lanai. There is a bike rental company in the building and a surf school right next door. Tons of highly rated restaurants and even a couple local bars are walkable.

                                                                    Betty was super responsive and accommodating.

The location was perfect, the amenities were great, lot's of local eating places and shopping (Kehei Café for breakfast is a must!). It was just so nice to be right on the beach, and close to everything we wanted to do. Having a washer and drier was a plus. Can't wait to go back!
