1-Bedroom 1-Bath Oceanfront Condo - Sleeps 4 [?]
Heaven on earth!
We recently enjoyed a week long stay in unit 412. Instantly your stress levels lower, as you look out on the the lanai and see the view. Seeing the waves crashing on the rocks below, the many turtles hanging out just below the unit, the smells of fresh flowers and people barbecuing. Relaxation! Although there is no beach in front of the place, we did swim and snorkel just a few steps to the south where there is a small beach where you can enter the water. The unit was comfortable, quiet, and convenient to stores and great places to eat out. The pool was refreshing and warm. Unit has its own parking spot which can be a bit tight if others do not park well next to you. We had an amazing stay in unit 412!
Far exceeded our expectations!
This ocean front condo had many lovely touches with a lot of original art, books/magazines/games, a washer/dryer, dish washer, comfortable king bed, and even a safe. We appreciated also seeing a picture of the owners which made it seem even more homey. The location is close to great restaurants, shopping, golfing, etc. There were fans everywhere and even an air-conditioner in the living room. Chuck was very helpful in setting this up through aloho Condos. We had no complaints and highly recommend this condo to anyone!
Kaleialoha 412 - a beautiful tropical retreat!
My husband and I recently got home from our annual trip to Hawaii. Our last week was spent on Maui at Kaleialoha 412. We have stayed at various rental condos on previous trips to Maui. All of them have been very comfortable and all have been oceanfront, but Kaleialoha 412 is the best! It is "no ka oi" as they say in Hawaii; we both feel that we've finally found our Maui home away from home and already have our reservations for next year. From the moment we first entered this unit, we were charmed by the beautiful decor and all the amenities, not to mention the gorgeous view! And the owners had left us a lovely welcome package on the kitchen counter - what a very warm and gracious gesture! The unit was stocked with everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was fully equipped and included a garbage disposal and dishwasher. The bedroom has a super-comfortable king-size bed, and we loved hearing the ocean in the background as we went to sleep each night. The living room has a DVD player and a CD player in addition to a large-screen TV. The owners even have a collection of Cd's there for their guests to enjoy. In the storage closet they have provided lots of beach gear - beach chairs, mats, folding camp chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc. They've really thought of everything! Our favorite place in the condo was on the lanai watching the activity on the water - catamarans, surfers, paddleboarders, snorkelers, etc. And a special treat was watching the green sea turtles swimming around the rocky reef just offshore - turtles in the morning with coffee, turtles in the evening with dinner and turtles even late at night. The water is so incredibly clear that we could easily see them by moonlight. And the sunsets were incredible - a blaze of color every evening in the channel between Molokai and Lanai! The Kaleialoha property itself is very attractive and well-maintained and is in a perfect location - close to Lahaina, but in the quiet town of Honokawai.
Absolutely spectacular--can't wait to return to #412!
We had a first rate experience with every aspect of renting this condo--from the booking, the check-in, to the departure. Both Lynne and Chuck were very helpful and accommodating. The condo itself was very nicely appointed: tastefully decorated, comfortable bed, good closet space, ceiling fans and air conditioner, great counter space in bathroom, books, games, beach gear, coolers, well-stocked kitchen, and impeccably clean overall. We appreciated the welcome basket upon arrival and thought it was a nice touch! However, the most spectacular aspect of this condo is the unbelievable view and close proximity to the ocean. It took our breath away when we first entered! We especially enjoyed watching the whales and resident turtles from our lanai! We were also impressed with how nicely the grounds and lounge chairs were kept. We are already hoping to plan a return trip to Maui and Kaleialoha condo #412 will be our condo of choice!
Grest view...Great location
We are just finishing a two week stay at Kaleialoha #412. The time went by so quickly! The Condo is centrally located with Kapalua, Kaanapali and Lahaina all with a 10 minute drive. The condo is nicely equipped with all the cooking utensils you would need, a nice King size bed, lots of beach equipment (chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella, coolers, beach towels,etc). Nice washer and dryer in the unit. Unit has aC but you will likely not need it. Lanai has nice furniture and absolutely killer views. No sandy beach in front, altho there is a small one adjacent to the property. Regular visits by turtles in front of the condo and lots of whales this time of year (March). They also do a Pupu party on Monday night. Great beaches nearby...be sure to try Kapaula beach. Decent amount of parking, washrooms and showers, some shade and lots of good snorkeling, Many restaurants to choose from in the area as well as a farmers market within walking distance. Be sure to try Java Jazz (in strip mall next to Snorkel Bobs) for dinner (also serves Breakfast and Lunch). Great food, eclectic atmosphere and evening entertainment. We rented direct from the owner on www.vrbo.com...you may want to try that as I believe you will get a better deal than renting from the condo complex
Spectacular, spectacular !!!
This condo is very comfortable, neat and tidy. You can find there everything you need for your stay. The view is fantastic, spectacular - 100% ocean view. When you are in lanai, you can see two islands: Molokai and Lanai which are just opposite Maui. The condo is perfectly located, very close to ocean as well as to shopping centre. I do recommend this condo.
Was a great condo. We have stayed at the Kaleialoha many times. This was the easiest check in and everything ran very smoothly. The condo is very clean and great quality. If there was one thing I can think of that needed changing is the pots and pans etc. We love to cook and found them to be very low quality. I did not find a kettle and so had to boil water in the aluminum pots. I also thought the forks, knives etc could be a higher quality. It seems petty, but someone who loves to cook will notice this as well. Otherwise, all was perfect!
This condo had the best view ever for whale watching--180 degrees on the 4th floor. Everything worked great, including the WiFi which was fast and reliable. Very comfortable. We will be back.
Better than advertised!
My wife and I are just wrapping up our two week stay in this great condo and we couldn't be happier with this home. My wife loves to cook and found the kitchen very well stocked with quality kitchenware. The view is fantastic and the bed is very comfortable. The laundry center made things so convenient and the proximity to our favorite restaurants, stores, and snorkeling areas was an added bonus. We are vacation owners ourselves and probably expect a little more than some other guests-and we got it! Thanks so much for sharing your home and we will be back! Jack and Sue from Tucson
It was everything I expected and the condo was quiet comfortable
The condo was great, everything we needed was close by and there was a nice place to watch the water and turtles that were everywhere. Don't have any complaints on the property at all. The condo was decorated beautifully and very clean and well kept up. We used the new barbecues several nights while we were there. Lahaina was close as well by car and we went to many of the restaurants and they were all good and the service was excellent everywhere as well. Great holiday.
It was an experience of a lifetime.
This private condo exceeded my expectations in every way. It was the nicest place I have ever had the pleasure of staying. The view from the balcony was spectacular. I spooted rainbows and sea turtles and a beautiful sunset every day and night. I was stunned when I entered the condo. The attention to detail and the place was so well stocked and decorated I could not believe my eyes. My girlfriend and I spent alot of our time on the lanai just admiring the view. I will never forget the experience with her and the wonderful condo. Hope to come back someday.
Magnificent In Every Way!!!
We absolutely loved everything about this condo and resort! The booking was a breeze, the condo is gorgeous, the view spectacular, the bed oh so comfy and the snorkeling and all the turtles...Wow!!! The location is the best! You can walk clear to Whalers village or just down the street to the local farmers market, deli, ABC store and many other beaches! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
Perfect location, beautiful accommodations
This is our second time staying at Kalealoha 412 and fourth time using aloha Condos. We have had great service from Chuck at aloha Condos and the owners of the condos themselves. Kalealoha 412 is a beautifully furnished condo with a spectacular view of the water and the islands of Lanai and Molokai. We love the location - just short drives to Lahaina and Kahana/Napili and great snorkeling spots. We can't wait to return.
Better than we could have imagined
The view was just like the pictures show (but, of course, a million times better in real life), the condo's beach was perfect for ocean dips whenever we felt like it, and the condo itself was well-supplied with everything we needed for our stay. We were provided with books about things to do on Maui, beach towels and some beach gear, a wonderful welcome basket, and more. Not only was the condo itself excellent, but the location could not have been better. We were close enough to some great beaches (e.g., Ka'anapli, Napili) that we could enjoy them whenever we wanted, but just far enough removed from the big hotels/resorts that we didn't feel suffocated by people. We would highly recommend Kaleialoha 412 to anyone. Can't wait to go back ourselves one of these days.
2nd stay here, still love it
This is my second stay in 412, first was last year for my honeymoon. This condo is in a nice location, its quiet and within walking distance to a grocery store, and a great little beach park. This year I was able to swim within feet of sea turtles twice! At one point there were seven sea turtles swimming right out back, amazing! You are always greeted with a spotlessly cleaned condo, and a nice welcome basket. I am sure I will return here many more times. I do have one complaint though, the internet is quite bad. I could not share any pictures with my family and friends on Facebook, and had difficulty researching activities online because either the connection was too slow, or I think the more likely culprit the wireless router needs to be replaced. The owners have even placed a sign next to it saying to unplug it and restart if you have issues. I had to do that several times a day. That is annoying, a router is only about $75, just replace it. Otherwise, happy as usual, like I said, I will definitely be back!
I agree slow internet is very frustrating. I work for Apple so am used to the latest and greatest. This is a common complaint we hear from friends/condo owners on Maui and have been told this is due to the fact we are on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. That being said we take all our guest feedback seriously and have replaced both the cable modem and the router. I see some improvement but definitely not what we get on the Mainland. Warmest alohas Ryan...hope you will be back soon! Lynne, owner condo 412
Great location and value for the $$$
Great location. Close to Lahaina for shopping and dining. Close to the best beaches for swimming and snorkeling( Kapalua, Napili, and Ka'anapalli. The condo is everything as advertised. My wife came for our 34th anniversary. Great place for a couple!! Felt like home, pretty much everything was in the condo.
Wow, the pictures don't do justice to the view! It was so relaxing to sip coffee (or rum drinks) from the lanai and enjoy the ocean, palm trees and even turtles swimming below us. The condo itself was lovely and comfortable--with everything we needed to feel right at home. The gift basket on arrival was a nice touch as well as books and games for us to enjoy. Close to good shopping and restaurants. We'd definitely stay here again!
amazing, great place to spend our honeymoon
We decided to stay here for our honeymoon. All i wanted to do all day is sit on the balcony and watch the sea turtles all day. What a nice condo and awesome place to stay. We will def choose this condo next time we come. Staff and residents were all very friendly and of course maui was amazing. It has ac but we didn't turn it on at all, nice breeze at night makes it perfect sleeping weather. The room exceeded our expectations and also came equipped with everything needed to find our way around maui and also had a road to hana cd. Made our time perfect!
Great time and great place to stay.
The condo was great and the location was very nice. There was plenty of room and the balcony area was great for looking out of the water and the island across the way. Enjoyed seeing the turtles every afternoon right next to the sea wall eating. We enjoyed our stay greatly.
We stayed in this condo for two weeks the last part of February. The first morning we got up I say a whale breach from our lanai. Besides many whale sightings we also enjoyed watching the turtles which were just below us in the water. This condo was very clean and up to date. It came with a lot of the necessities you need like paper products, trash bags, detergents and soaps. We were just a short walk to the farmers market, which was open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a local park and just a little further, but still walkable, a supper market. The weather was perfect with a breeze most days. We did not need to use the air conditioner. The condo also had a washer and dryer which was very convenient.
Great week in paradise
This was our second trip to Maui and again stayed at the Kaleialoha Resort Condo 412. The location is lovely by the ocean.
We had the most memorable time in Maui!
My fiance and I came to Maui to get married and spend our 2 week honeymoon. We had debated about staying in a resort style hotel for one week or a condo for two weeks at the same price and obviously chose the condo. We made the right choice too! We were so so happy with the place! It was nice and clean upon arrival and very inviting. We loved the ocean view most of all, it was amazing to watch the sunsets from the lanai and then wake up every morning to the sound of waves. It was also nice that there was everything else we needed already there, from beach towels, snorkeling stuff, and body boards to trash bags, laundry detergent, and ice trays! It really is the place to come if you want to have an amazing place to come "home" to while in Maui. We can't wait to come back next year for our first wadding anniversary and stay in condo 412!
Fantastic little condo, great location.
Kaleialoha is in a great location just north of Lahaina, very easy to find. Times grocery store is within a 10 minute walk, as well as a nice little park that has a great tide pool. The condo itself was very clean, the bed was comfortable. There were a couple of boogy boards in the closet and some noodles, but you may want to rent since this equipment has been there a while. There is an airconditioner in the living room, it may be big enough to cool the whole place, but we didnt need it in early September. We were able to watch seaturtles swimming immediately outside of the lanai, and if the surf had been more calm I am sure we could have swam with them. The pool is fantastically clean, and solar heated, no better way to wind down from a hectic day snorkelling and boogy boarding than to relax in a nice warm pool. The grounds were meticulously maintained. I was never disturbed by loud neighbors. It was a quick drive to most major beaches (max 50 mins to the farthest on the west coast). You do not really need to shop at Costco in Kahului, Times and Safeway in Lahaina are not hugely overpriced. However if you want liquor it pays to go to Costco, they are cheaper than mainland prices, Wayyy cheaper. All in all, awesome, hope to come back every year on my anniversary.
Everything we thought it would be!
I was so nervous about making reservations through the internet w/o a travel agent but 412 was everything they claimed it would be. Everything went so smoothly. As soon as we walked through the condo and out on the lanai and saw the view, I cried. Hawaii is as beautiful as I had built it up in my mind and we were finally there. I wondered about being on the 4th floor but its great. No one above you and a quick elevator ride down and a short walk to the beach. It was very quiet and private and had all the amenities of home.We immediately felt at home. In fact we have the same drinking glasses at home. The only thing for me that was missing was a tub because I like to lounge in the tub but no biggie and a pizza cutter as we had frozen pizza one night but no problem we used a knife. It has everything. I have short hair but even saw a curling iron. We spent lots of time on the lanai. Loved loved watching the morning rainbows while having our coffee and breakfast. Which by the way was my favorite part of the lovely gift basket...the coffee. Was Ono! Mahalo. Ended up buying more of that. We saw lots of turtles and would love to plan a trip in the winter to see the whales. It was absolutely the most perfect way to spend our 25th anniversary!!!
This condo exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully decorated and has so many personal touches. It truly felt like home. The bed is so comfortable and having a washer/dryer in the unit was so convenient. We were able to see turtles from the bistro table on the lanai. It was nice sitting up high so as to not have to look through the railing! The complex is within walking distance to many stores. We rented bicycles and had a blast. Oh, the condo also has 2 boogie boards in the unit. We bought some at Costco and then later returned them. We didn't use the kitchen very much, we ate out a lot. But it has everything you would need. We swam and read by the pool one afternoon. It is very well maintained and the grounds around it are gorgeous. I was totally okay with it being in the front of the unit as opposed to ocean side. It was sooo hard to say goodbye to this condo unit. I am already planning a return trip!
Perfect stay at Kaleialoha
Me and my wife spent one week at room 412 of Kaleialoha condos and it was perfect : location is great just few meters of ocean (the view !!!), everything needed is here and even more (internet, welcome basket, tv, air conditioner, tv, music, full equiped kitchen,...). Everything was at the top and I can just say one thing : go there, you will not regret it !!
Our 4 day West Maui stay.
Wish we'd planned to stay longer. After leaving Maui we spent 4 days on Oahu in hotels and my young adult children wished we'd stayed on Maui in Condo 412. We swam with turtles in front of the condo and watched the sunset from the lanai. We were conveniently close to excellent snorkeling (Honolua) and surfing (Lahaina). The condo had everything we needed and more. If given the opportunity, we would definitely stay here again.
So many things we loved about our stay in this condo: - situated in a less busy area surrounded by low-rise condos and close to shopping, restaurants and anything you need. - the condo complex is extremely well maintained. - the condo is clean, well-maintained, well-stocked and has lovely decor. Looks just like the photos only better. - huge glass doors and wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows leading to lanai with incredibly beautiful view. Loved watching the turtles and listening to the surf. - on the top floor. No one making noise above you. - very quiet complex and condo. - air conditioning is quiet, bed is very comfortable - short walk to beach, nice pool and grounds - local people very friendly and informative - easy to find and check-in is fast and easy - buy delicious, fresh take-out or fresh fish from the Fish Market only a couple of blocks away and enjoy eating on lanai while watching sunset. - relaxing, peaceful, comfortable. We would highly recommend this beautiful condo. We hope to return very soon. Thanks so much to the owners for thoughtfully providing their guests with such a wonderful place to stay on the gorgeous island of Maui.
A wonderful place to stay!
This condo had everything a person could want -- a great location and view, was extremely clean, had all the possible amenities one could need, and clearly was very well maintained -- as were the pool and grounds. We definitely plan to return next year if not sooner for a longer stay!
The room was exactly as shown on the website.
We were very happy with the quality of the room and the view from the lanai. We like being able to see, online, the exact room we will get upon arrival. Also like that we don't have to check in at the office. Welcome basket was a very nice addition. Only negative is the cost of cleaning added on the room charge. This would have been a better value if we had stayed longer than 3 days. The room was very well stocked with any kitchen and beach items we might need and that added a lot of value to the room. Location was good, quiet and away from crowds, but close to Lahania and Kaanapali. Lanai view was spectacular, we didn't want to leave the room.
All you could ask for and more
The minute you walk through the door you realize that the owner has gone "over the top" in hospitality. Anything you could have thought you needed or wanted is already at your fingertips, including a beautiful welcome basket. Furnishings, artwork, electronics and kitchenware are all high quality. The view from the lanai, whether at sunrise or sunset was incredible. I had a hard time reading because I kept watching the whales breach and the sea turtles brunch. It was a great place for my 81 year old mother to sit and read. The snorkeling wasn't great but one did see a variety of fish and turtles. The swimming pool was on the inland side of the building which was nice and quiet. It is very close to the west Maui airport. This condo is very relaxing and quiet. We really enjoyed the stay. The elevator was great for my mom.
This place was paradise. The condo was clean and well maintained. The view off the lanai - what more could you ask for whales in the morning, turtles every afternoon. Close location to the airport and 10 minutes from Lahaina. Restaurants and shopping near by. Easy parking at the condo. Could not have asked for more. Beautiful gift basket on arrival.
Perfect for our stay
Very clean, well maintained and charming condo. Everything was as advertised online or better. We are not big beach lovers, so we did not miss having access to a nice beach. But, there is a park just up the road, the beach facing lawn is well maintained and the sunning facilities are great. Great whale and sea turtle watching from the lanai. Close to all the important things on the West side of Maui. Friendly and helpful permanent residents. I would come back here in a heart beat and would highly recommend the condo to any and all. Ps the gift basket was a great show of aloha. Mahalo!
You won't get any closer to the ocean. By the end of our short visit we were so used to seeing whales and turtles from the lanai that it was no big deal. Very clean, close to lots of good food options, reasonably priced. Overall a really good place to stay on Maui.
We love this place
Typically we do not stay in West Maui because most of our friends live in Kihie and its a bit of a drive...That being said we make an exception to stay at Kaleialoha during whale season because of the amazing views from the balcony. You can not beat the view or condition of this condo. My wife's favorite place to stay in West Maui hands down.
Our stay couldnt have been much nicer. Parking is close to the elevator and free. Our condo was welcoming from the time we walked in the door. The decor was beautiful and very tropical... and most important the furniture was very comfortable. Im not sure Ive ever slept in a more comfortable bed! The lanai allows you direct access to the most incredible view you can imagine! We watched the sea turtles feeding daily so close you could almost touch them. The whales were putting on a show too! ( Im sure they were doing it just for us). We cant wait to return. The guestbook from previous guests was full of great information from their experiences in Maui. Favorite places to eat, favorite beaches etc. We loved it and cant wait to return.
beautiful condo, decorated in the island theme. small walk to small beach but just a longer walk to a 4 mile beach. Quiet location but close to everything.
Great Unit, Wonderful Vacation
This unit was supplied with everything that we could possibly have wanted, thought of...unit was updated, clean and I believe the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have had in a vacation unit. Views from the lanai were fantastic and we got hooked on watching the sea turtles right below our lanai every day. Will be back!
absolutely adorable condo
We had a wonderful stay in 412. It was clean and very comfortable. We love the lanai area where we can have our cocktails and enjoy the turtles swimming right in front of us. It is nice to feel comfortable in someone else's home. We appreciate the owner's sharing their paradise with us. Lynn and Jim Selig
We took this trip for our 20th anniversary. We had stayed at other aloha Condos and as usual, everything went off without a hitch. This condo is beautiful, well appointed, and nicely located near, but not right in super-busy areas. We saw turtles swimming in front of the condo several days and also saw rays and spinner dophins from our lanai. We had a loverly, relaxing time and cannot wait to go back.
oceanfront relaxation and fabulous outdoor adventures
From the get-go, we knew we had chosen a winner. Open the door and see the ocean straight ahead through the huge glass doors that lead onto the spacious lanai where we ate our breakfast every morning. Space was comfortable, clean, with interesting artwork and a good collection of books and fun gear. Our neighbors were friendly and we met fun people sitting outside by the ocean having our personal happy hour. Interestingly, we saved a lot of money by staying here because the view and accommodations were so delightful that we were more happy to cook and eat on our own porch or with our neighbors than go into town and buy meals and drinks. Extra nice details were the barbecue outside and the basket of goodies when we first got there. Location was perfect--a 10-minute drive to the quaint town of Lahaina, a decent grocery store and coffee house within walking distance, and lots of top notch beaches within a few minutes away.
Lovely Home away From Home!
We stayed at the Kaleialoha Condos, Condo 412, from 06/14 to 06/22. From the moment we walked in, we were absolutely thrilled. We were greeted with a thoughtful welcome basket, and a fantastic ocean front, ocean view from the balcony/lanai. Seriously, this place is just 30 feet from the water? Maybe just 25. This one bedroom condo was perfect. Costing less than an "ocean view" studio at nearby hotels, it has a separate bedroom which is a must because my husband loves to watch tv until the wee hours and I don't. :) Every afternoon, giant sea turtles swam by, stopping at the reef rocks right down below in front of our lanai to graze on algae...never saw them while snorkeling but saw them every afternoon when I was sitting on the lanai. There was a "noodle" and a ice chest that came in handy in the closet, some beach/lawn chairs, along w/a few other water toys in the hall closet. Two big beach towels were ready and waiting! The condo was very clean, and felt very spacious with all the mirrors. Free wifi, an ac unit when we needed it, though the breeze from the bedroom windows to out through the patio doors was great most days. The grounds are immaculate. Almost every day someone is out washing off the lounge chairs, tables & chairs for the guests/owners. To top it off, when we were out exploring Maui, I kept referring to the condo as "home". That's how nice this place is. It's cute, comfortable, a great deal, and we would definitely stay there again if we returned to Maui!
After looking extensively at hotels and condos, we chose to stay at Kaleialoha Resort Condo 412. It was a truly wonderful experience and actually exceeded all of our expectations, looking even better in person than it does in the pictures and video. The place was immaculate, the view was wonderful, and the grounds were beautiful. No need for us to look any further. We have found the place we plan to return to every time we visit Maui. Where you choose to stay can make or break a vacation, as we learned the hard way when we tried to spend a night at one of the cheaper places in Hana (if $125 + cleaning and tax is cheap). Thank you so much, Kaleialoha #412. for giving us an amazing place to stay, and build an wonderful vacation around. We cant wait for our return!
Great except bugs
We had a great time at this condo. Perfect location. Great hosts who helped out a lot. Lynne is very prompt and great at suggestions. The condo has been done up well with the Hawaiian theme and the hosts have thought of everything that renters would need. There are board games, guide books, boogie boards, snorkel gear. The only problem we had was with bugs. There was nothing in the apartment to prevent them since the lanai doors didnt work very well. We were hoping we would have been warned about this so we could be more prepared. Wonderful otherwise.
Thank you for your nice comments. We are sorry to hear that you had an experience with bugs. Maui is a tropical climate and as such our condo complex treats for the occasional unwelcome guest (except for the cute little geckos). I am sorry that you did not contact me or my local contact as we would have been happy to have taken care of this for you. Our goal is to make your experience pleasurable and we are always available to help with anything that isn't to your satisfaction.
Awesome, can't wait to book again
The condo was perfect and new and clean and awesome We cannot wait to go back again. All the conveniences of home yet with the gorgeous view of the ocean steps away. The sunsets cannot be beat and the closeness of shopping, we barely got in our car.
The Perfect Get-Away
We absolutely loved our stay at Kaleialoha. We were welcomed with a sparkling clean condo with a beautiful welcome basket that was totally unexpected. The condo is decorated cute and so well equipped. The view from the lanai is perfect and with the doors and windows open the sound of the waves is so relaxing. We loved our evenings and mornings so much that we didn't want to leave for dinner. The visitors and residents of Kaleialoha were friendly and down to earth. We far prefer this condo over the 5 star resort that we previously stayed in. Location near the farmers market and coffee shop was great as was the proximity to both restaurants and snorkeling and beautiful drives. This is the very place that we want to return and take our family.
Great view. Great location, Great decor.
Condo 412 was extremely nice and well decorated. Everything was just like the pictures showed. It was on the 4th floor overlooking the ocean. We saw turtles and whales on a daily basis. Sunsets were beautiful every evening. Great location. Close to grocery stores, farmers market, Lahaina and other shopping areas. Very good neighborhood for taking a morning walk. It had everything needed for everyday life, such as washer and dryer, dishwasher, hairdryer, iron etc. We really enjoyed the view from the Lanai the best. The gas grill shared by all of the condos was on its last legs and needs to be replaced.
Exactly as Advertised
We stayed at the Kaleialoha Condo #412 from Feb. 14 (Valentine's Day) to Feb. 19th. What a great way to spend the romantic holiday. The room was exactly as advertised - complete with sunshine!! When I initially inquired on the location, Lynne (the owner) called me on a Sunday to further describe it and answer any questions. Her personal touch is also evident in the room and didn't go unnoticed. There are items spread throughout the condo that make you feel right at home from books to read, a small sewing kit and even a bottle of peroxide in case you cut yourself. We relaxed on the lanai, drank Mai Tais and watched the whales and turtles. This is a perfect location for a Maui vacation and I am recommending it to all my friends and will gladly stay there again on our next trip to Maui. Thanks a bunch to Lynne and Costas for sharing your "home" with us.
Perfect - minus the next door neighbors smoking
I loved my stay at this very cute and well equipped condo. Hearing the waves while we slept was very relaxing. Saw plenty of whales - even some jumping out of the water as well as many turtles on a regular basis. Perfect location - would consider buying a place like this someday. The only bad part which was just our bad luck was the people renting the adjacent unit ignored the no-smoking policy and smoked out on their Lanai - pretty much every morning and evening when we were trying to enjoy the view and fresh air. We were chased off the Lanai a number of times because of this and reporting it to the office seemed to make no difference.
Kalaeialoha Resort, Unit 412
This was our 6th trip to Maui, and I can unequivocally tell you that this unit was the quietest of all of the places we've stayed. It's so pleasant not to hear the garbage trucks at 5:30 a.m.!! Unit 412 was beautifully and tastefully done, but not so fancy that we felt uncomfortable in it. We walked in the door, saw the view, then the Welcome Basket, and immediately felt comfortable, relaxed and at home. Located about 1 mile south of Kahana, and about 5 miles north of Lahaina, it is a very central location to the north-west side of Maui. The sunsets are terrific; the whale-watching is fantastic; the turtle watching is really fun; and the snorkeling is great. What more can a person ask for??? We really have no complaints, only thanks to the owners for having such a comfortable, yet well-appointed condo.
We really enjoyed our stay in Kaleialoha Condo #412. The view was incredible. We had sea turtles entertain us constantly. The sunsets were amazing. The condo itself was clean, spacious and everything was in working order (except the wi-fi). We will definitely stay here again upon our next visit.
Beautiful Sunsets and Pure Relaxation
Our recent trip to Maui, Oct. 10 - Oct. 17 was one of our best yet. We've stayed in unit 412 many times and it's always a pleasure. With all the amenities of home, a clean, nicely decorated space, and incredible views you couldn't ask for a better place to stay on Maui. You can watch giant sea turtles eat off the reef right in front of your condo. Local fish market, coffee house, and farmer's market are a short walk each day for fresh products. Chatting it up with the permanent residents while grilling your fish at sunset is a real treat every evening. Then end each day falling asleep to the gentle sound of the waves. It doesn't get any better than this on Maui.
An anniversary to remember forever
Aloha! We are watching our slide show from our trip Sept.29-Oct.9 2009. It is almost as beautiful as seeing it all for the first time. Lynn & Costa could not have better "hosts". The condo was everything we read and more. We loved the gift basket. The details in decorating and the cleanliness of the condo could not be topped by anyone! The staff at Kaleialoha Resort was friendly and ready to help us in any way possible. Getting together at sunset with some of the permanent residents was great. We got so many great "tips" that really helped us experience Maui to the fullest. Thanks guys!!! We miss you already. The Feast at LeLe was unbelievable! It HAS to be the best luau on Maui. The road to Hana was an adventure (would spend the night in Hana if we did it again). Bringing fresh fish and fruit/vegetables back to the condo from the Farmer's market for dinner made it truly feel like "home". This was our 44th anniversary and it surely was the best one so far! We hope to return to Maui some day (God willing) and Condo 412 is where we want to be. If we have to find a down-side; it would be not enough days; until we meet again, Mahalo to you all!!!
Exactly how Hawaii should be!
My wife and I stayed at 412 and although there was some construction going, we had a FABULOUS stay. This condo met all our needs and had a spectacular view! We tanned, swam in the back and were close to Lahaina (best part of the Island. The condo itself was clean, well kept and we appreciated everything the owners went to make us feel welcome! Well, this review may not contain much or if any negativity because it was simply a great stay and let me and my new wife enjoy our honeymoon together without breaking the bank! THANKS!
Very pleasant stay
We had a wonderful time in Maui. The temperature was perfect and the beaches beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay at the condo in Lahaina; we had a chance to see turtles and the place was great. It was really nice to go to sleep and wake up in the morning at the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. We are planning to go back to Maui in the near future and would certainly try to book the same place. Aloha and Mahalo, Luc Bergeron
Comfort and location!
We found the condo to be very comfortable. It is perfect for 2 people. Right on the beach, we were visited by sea turtles and had a front row seat for spectacular sunsets. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with everything you need. There is a small beach right next to the condo for snorkling or swimming. We will stay here again.
I recently had the great pleasure to spend 6 days in Unit #412 at Kaleialoha Resort. It is a perfectly appointed unit with an expansive oceanview of Lanai and Molokai. I ate every meal on the lanai to the musical accompaniment of the crashing waves and the incredible vistas of bright blue waters, sea turtles and even a pod of dolphins. At night the moon's reflection sparkled in the water below and hundreds of stars twinkled from above, in a way that can only be seen, when one is far enough away from all the city lights where I live. It was just a dream. The condo's decor is charming and it is impeccably maintained. The kitchen is well stocked with dishware and cutlery. And there are even beach chairs, snorkel masks and ice chests available in the unit, for those who wish to make day trips to the beach. I especially appreciated the Natural foods store and Farmer's Market within easy walking distance. There was wonderful produce and delicious baked goods for sale outside on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And inside the Natural Foods store there was a very good selection of organic foods and products, which was better than any I'd ever seen on my many previous trips to Maui. There was some construction going on at the complex during the day, but I did not find the noise to be overwhelming or intrusive, and the workers were all polite and good natured. The condo's owner was very friendly and helpful and keeps the unit in perfect order. I would definately recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a charming environment, spectacular ocean view and lovely Hawaiian ambiance. It's a gem!
The afternoon turtles were the highlight of our stay. Very warm and comfortable condo!! We will be back.
great location, fantastic view, very well kept, very quite, very clean, nice swimming pool, closed to shops. some constructions work while we were there, but since we were aware of that we were totally fine. Highly recommended place to enjoy a great vacation!
Welcome to "Fantasy Island"
The experience was a delight from beginning to end. The apartment is meticulously maintained, beautifully decorated and well located. After three weeks visiting the other islands it was a pleasure to walk in and feel at home. The sunsets from the lanai are priceless! It truly made me feel like I was on "Fantasy Island."
We stayed in Maui at the condo resort for about a week and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. We had a gorgeous view of the ocean and sunset from our balcony and fell asleep to the sound of ocean waves every night. We could even see the sea turtles in the ocean down below us when looking over the balcony. The unit was nicely decorated and was very clean. It was fully equipped with everything we needed during our stay. The air conditioning made it very comfortable to be there after coming back from the beach and warm sun. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfy pad to stay in during their visit to paradise!
Great value for vacation
Our stay at Kaleialoha Condo #412 was wonderful. We prefer accommodations where we can set the pace and not compete with a crowd. This condo was perfect for our needs. The full kitchen, in-unit laundry and the farmers market down the street were very convenient and really helped on the whole cost of the vacation. Yet there are lots of restaurants nearby in Kaanapali and Lahaina if you prefer to go out. The view from the lanai was spectacular. We had breakfast and dinner on the lanai every day, watching the whales and sea turtles at play. This also appears to be a good place for moderately experienced surfers to enjoy the waves. Good surf but no where near the pounding waves of the north shore. We will definitely recommend this condo to anyone who prefers a similar type of experience.
This was absolutely the best place I've stayed in a very long time! From the time I opened the door, it felt like home. From the oh-so-comfortable bed, to the well furnished kitchen, and the rest of the furnishings - all superb. You add in the view and it was nothing less than spectacular. Having my morning cuppa on the balcony watching the whales go by - the best way to start the day. You'll love it!
A wonderful Anniversary Getaway
This property was perfect for our week in Mid February. The Unit was clean, well maintained, and stocked with necessary supplies. The Lanai was our favorite place. We enjoyed all the wonderful views, sunsets, turtles, whales etc. The grounds and building was also clean and well maintained. It was all so relaxing and quiet. The residents were friendly and we enjoyed visiting with them. The rental was close to so many activities, one did not have to drive far to enjoy them. We hope to return again to Maui, and we will definitely stay at the same place.
Staying in this rental property is like staying in your own home transplanted in paradise. The condo is well stocked with everything you'll need--linens, kitchen utensils, beach chairs, and more. It's amazing what you will see just sitting on the lanai--turtles, the neighboring islands, and sunsets you will remember for a lifetime. Lahaina and Kaanapali are both a short drive down the road when you want to hit the tourist scene. But even after a night out, you will look forward to coming "home." And the first thing you will do on your departure day is think about when you will return.
Paradise in Paradise
Michael&Pat Hunt: Our Condo was perfect. Well keep grounds, a quiet area with friendly guests & staff. The view of the Ocean was fabulous. Great shopping and dining close at hand. Would defenitely recommend it to a friend, and will most likely stay there again.
Very comfortable and relaxing
We were fortuneate to vacation in Hawaii for five weeks with Maui as our last stop for eight nights. Here we picked a winner. What a treat. The accomodations were very comfortable and one could not help but relax while watching whales and beautiful sunsets from the lanai (you can even watch Lanaii from your lanai). We definitely should go back.
This is Heaven on Earth
I have been to Maui numerous times prior to finding this hidden treasure Kalaialoha Unit 412 but this is was by far above and beyond fantastic. The first time was on my 40th and I fell in love with the unit and returned in November 2008. In April the whales were still there and visiable from the lanai. The turltes were also visiable from the lanai. The unit is clean and very hospitable. It's location is key. You can walk to private beaches, or BBQ in the back yard. It's a close distance form Kaanapali and Kapalua and downtown Lahaina. But again, the unit is so nice and the views with the breathtaking sunsets it's hard to leave the unit. I highly recommend Kaleialoha for anyone returning or who have an interest in coming to Maui for the first time. It is heaven on earth. As a world traveler...there is no better place to hike, swim, play tennis/golf, surf or just read a book. I highly recommend Kaleialoha Unit 412. I look forward to returning soon! Bravo Lynne and Costas!
Home away from Home
My husband and I stayed in March 2009 and we immediately felt like "Home". And...the weather was perfect! the Island was Perfect! and the Condo was Perfect! We arrived from Ohio late in the evening but immediately felt at home. Everything was clean, organized, the "Welcome Basket" was great. I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed out stay here. I would definitely stay again and my husband and I have recommended the condo to some other friends who may be interested. Barb and Dick
Great Oceanside Condo
This is a great condo. It's on the top floor, and the views off the lanai are stunning. The islands of Molokai and Lanai are incredible. This truly is an oceanside condo. The crashing waves will lull you to sleep every night. The condo is very nicely furnished and is perfect for 2 people. The beach is only steps away from the condo, and there is free parking in front. This was our first visit to Maui, and we would definitely rent this condo again.
