Nohonani Condos and Resort
Beach and Pool Steps away
Roni M from Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Ca on 11/03/2013 said:
This two bedroom condo was perfect for my 83 year old mom and me. It was 30 feet from the sand and 8 feet from the pool. We found that no one showed up to the pool until around noon and were gone again at sunset so we had the area all to ourselves with a killer view. Turtles were on the rocks in front all day and slept on the sand. The condo was comfortable and had good Wifi and television. We loved the comfy couch and the guest bath had grab bars for the toilet. The Farmers Market was a nice short walk away and we attended the church next to it which was in Hawaiian. Loved it! Everything was clean and perfect for us. We will probably be back next year.
Awesome place, walk out to the pool and beach through your patio
Jeff from Corner Brook on 10/21/2013 said:
Swim with turtles, great snorkeling, very friendly staff and other renters. Excellent place to stay.
Lovely, Relaxing Condp!
rj2peas from Longview on 10/12/2013 said:
Loved this condo, location, simplicity, cleanliness and just the lovely beach in front. Everything was just what I was looking for, for my trip to Maui. Peace and relaxation. The condo has been updated with granite countertops and tile flooring and a lovely tile walk in shower. The simplicity of the furniture and dÃ©cor was just right. Love the turtles out front everyday and all the sea life to view from the beach. Can't say enough good about this place!
A bit too noisy for us ...
Ralph LaBarge from Gambrills, MD on 08/08/2013 said:
While this condo has an excellent location, since it is on the first floor right next to the pool it was very noisy from 9:00-9:00 every day. If you have kids who want to spend all day at the pool, this is a good choice for you. Probably not a good choice if you want some peace and quiet when you are in the condo.
A Wonderful Vacation! from Buffalo Grove, IL on 07/31/2013 said:
We loved that we were steps away from the ocean. Listening to the waves hit the shoreline every night was wonderful. Condo was very spacious and had everything that we needed. Every nite a huge Hawaiian Sea Turtle came up on the beach right in front to rest. Just magical! It is a little noisey if you go to bed early due to the fact that it also is poolside. But the resident manager kicked all the kids out at 9:00 every night. I know that's not late but when you're out in the sun and doing activities all day ... Well lets just say we never saw 10 pm any night!
Perfect home away from home
Singer from Modesto CA on 07/18/2013 said:
We rented 3 ground floor condos as we had a large group. The location was chosen because of proximity to our vow renewal ceremony on Kapalua Beach. The condo beach is very small and not as kid friendly as I would have liked, but the children loved the pool! We all enjoyed the sea turtles that swam off shore and slept on the beach. The facility manager Joe, was very warm and inviting. The condo itself was very comfortable and roomy.
Our home away from home
Displayname from North Andover, Massachusetts on 04/03/2013 said:
The condo was everything we hoped it would be. The kitchen is well appointed with storage containers and every utensil you can think of. Being on the first floor allowed us to walk from our lanai directly to the pool and beach. It was nice to let the waves lull us to sleep each night and we were astonished by how many whale sightings we saw...too bad we forgot our binoculars
The best location for a Maui vacation ever
Rollo from Seattle on 12/03/2012 said:
Wow what a great place with its own beach only steps away from your living room. Condo was nicely furnished and had everything you need for an extended stay. Patio and pool were fantastic and the gas grill was an extra bonus. Almost made you feel guilty leaving it to explore the island. Would definetly recomend this to my friends and am sure we will be back there on our next Maui trip.
Amazing Beachfront Condo West Maui
Trout from Phoenix, Arizona on 11/23/2012 said:
While we are not huge fans of West Maui, this condo, located north of Lahania offered amazing beach access only a few steps from our own private lanai!! I imagine during whale season the location is perfectly situated with Molokai'i in plain sight across the channel for whale watching. We recommend this condo for anyone looking for a quiet vacation rental or honeymooners (like us).
A little piece of tranquility
pop from Richmond, Canada on 10/11/2012 said:
Sun, sunsets, a pool, turtles(including the ones in the pool)snorkeling, and a beach just steps from your front door. What else do you want when looking to get away from it all. The service was good and the condo was clean and comfortable.
Corinne from Tucson AZ on 10/08/2012 said:
We had a great time in this condo. If you are looking for a private quiet condo but still close to everything. We had turtles every day on the reef in front and even caught pictures of one sleeping on the sand. Being able to just walk right out to the pool and sandy beach was fabulous.
Great place for family with kids.
Anupam from California on 05/02/2012 said:
We loved our stay at Condo 101. It is an oceanfront unit. We used to have our morning tea at sunrise on the beach, and evening tea watching the sun set into the ocean. The kids had a fun time at the little 'private' beach when we were at home. We spotted a sea turtle at this beach and were also able to snorkel there and see fishes. The unit is equipped with full kitchen, dish washer and washer-dryer which proved very useful.
SS from Houston on 04/11/2012 said:
The condo is located in a great part of Maui The condo provided all that was needed for a great vacation.
Wonderful accommodations and location for a family vacation
Diana from Glendale on 08/13/2013 said:
I have been bringing my family to the Nohonani since 1985 and this year there were nine of us including three grand children staying in three condos. The location of 102 is ideal for children because of the proximity to the pool and it is hard to beat a ground floor location for convenience. The kitchen is well equipped which was important to us because we ate in a lot. The decor particularly in the bedrooms is a little dated and the large sectional sofa bed is a bit shabby but it was comfortable for sitting and serviceable as an extra bed. The off site rental manager was very helpful and responded quickly to all requests.
Proximity to beach is unbeatable!
Anita Kuller from Healdsburg, CA on 08/01/2013 said:
Our family rented unit 102 and had the best vacation we have ever taken. Crashing waves at night, snorkeling all day and blowing the conch as the sun set in paradise. The unit was clean and had all the accessories the kids could use in pool and ocean, boogie boards, noodles etc. We will be returning without a doubt!
Singer from Modesto CA on 07/18/2013 said:
One of three that we rented. Very nice, roomy, comfortable. The washer/dryer, and bathtub were great to have with small children. Because we were a large group, we chose ground level which worked perfect for us. Easy access to the pool and beach. You do lose some privacy though and we experienced one guests ire with our visiting :/ We appreciated the use of beach chairs and water toys.
Fabulous ocean-front condo with your own sea-turtle on your back
John J from McLean, Virginia on 12/28/2012 said:
This ground-floor two-bedroom condo was well-equipped and well-furnished, allowing the four of us -- myself, my wife, and two grown sons -- to enjoy a relaxing and stimulating week on the west shore of Maui. Green turtles were common in the colorful reefs just offshore, and one crawled up on the beach for a snooze during most of the nights we were there. If you don't cater to salt water, a swimmable fresh water pool offers an option on the other side of the patio. The 180-degree ocean view toward Molokai was decorated with frequently lovely sunsets and the occasional breaching humpback whale during our stay. Making dinner was easy in the fully-appointed kitchen, with a pair of available grills at the end of the patio for the steak or fresh fish available locally. Parking was never fully occupied, and one could get any necessary food items at an organic food store a short walk down the road. It made a great base for exploring Maui, but as the week went by, we ventured away from this comfortable haven less and less, and just relaxed in the natural beauty, breeze, and sunshine. It was painful to leave at the end of the week.
Location, location, location!!!
Bill from Ocala, FL on 10/28/2012 said:
We enjoyed a week in this unit which is just 50 yards from the surf! We could walk out our sliding door unto our patio, about 20 yards to a 1 foot sea wall, and there was the sand beach and a beautiful westerly view into the sunsets! The Unit has all the essentials although the second bedroom is a bit small with two twin beds. Neighbors were friendly and this unit is in easy walking distance of Shops and a farmers market a couple days a week. We will stay again if we ever come to Maui again. Hope we do! Bill Schertz.

Fantastic place to stay
Katie from Fremont, CA on 05/21/2012 said:
My husband, mom, daughter and I stayed at this condo for 9 days, and it was great! We received an informative email, which made it easy to find and get into the place. It was clean, and there were all sorts of nice perks like extra keys, which were on wrist bands, so it made it easy to keep track of them, beach toys, a cooler, plenty of towels, and more. It is right on a little beach, which you can go snorkeling around, and we saw at least one turtle (often more) every day in the water just a few feet from the shoreline. There was also two bbq grills on the complex, which we took full advantage of, and there is a farmer's market, awesome fish market, and larger grocery store all within walking distance. Plus the price of this place was much lower than those around it. It was a fantastic deal, and I would most definitely rent it again and recommend it to others.
Shaidan from reno, nv on 12/12/2013 said:
Unit 103, in my opinion, locationally speaking is hands down the best unit in the complex - no one else is a) situated so close to the gate to the beach B) has a retaining wall that is comfortagble enough to sit on for long periods of time that is right outside their patio door and C) has an immediate view of the beach not the pool - The only thing I didnt expect was that there were no cleaning supplies so i had to buy my own kitchen counter cleaner, there was only 1 spare roll of TP and no spare paper towel - And once we bought our own stuff, i never even thought twice about that again. It was just an initial irritation. The management staff,(Joe) while not related to aloha Condos was so friendly and offered lots of information and was a pleasant and friendly face every morning. Cannot wait to go back - a little disappointed to see the 2014 rates go up so much as we already checked for a return in Nov again. May have to find somewhere else due to raise in rates.
Amazing honeymoon condo!
Javi from Ottawa on 09/30/2013 said:
Everything about this condo was amazing! We arrived after a very long day of flying from Ottawa, and had no trouble accessing the condo. Parking is easy and right on site. The ocean is literally right outside the doors of this place. You can't help but be mesmerized by it. The pool is large and warm and allows for great views of the islands. The condo was perfect for a couple (or a couple of kids - we hope to return with ours in 5 years!). The living room is exactly as shown in the photos - comfortable, spacious, bright and an awesome view of the islands and sunset each night. The sunsets are spectacular! The kitchen is large enough to prepare a meal and most items are there (oven mitts would be a good item to add). We purchased food at the local Farmer's Market and Safeway in Lahaina and made all of our meals either in the kitchen or on the shared BBQ by the pool. The bathroom was clean and the shower nicely updated and spacious. The king sized bed and large bedroom with patio doors was perfect for this honeymooning couple. Since we were there for 9 days, we really appreciated the dresser provided. Having a working safe would have been nice, as we had our passports and cash and didn't always want to bring them with us to the beach or when we went diving. The beach felt like our own private beach, likely because of the time of year (Sept). There was a turtle who would join us almost every day and it was my husband's favourite animal on the island. We snorkelled a bit in the water outside the condo, but most days the conditions weren't ideal (very windy all day every day). The lanai was great and having pull down blinds was welcomed come 3pm! Our lanai did not have a lounge chair (I understand it will be replaced in the winter), but when I called the woman who manages this condo, she found one for me. I used it everyday, so a big thank you for accommodating my request! We loved this condo so much, we have already recommended it to others going to Maui soon!
A true Mauie beach front paradise.
Kathleen T from Coarsegold CA on 09/24/2013 said:
I found booking with Nohonani Condos Resort on the web easy and when I did have a question, the people I spoke to were kind, helpful and a very upbeat. The Condo was clean and well supplied with all we needed to make our stay comfortable, safe and totally enjoyable. Being right on the beach with all the comforts of home made our trip a dream come true. It is so nice the way it is set up. We came right from the airport and settled in, no hassle checking in... Thanks for making our first visit to the Islands one that leaves us longing to come back. Kathleen Tucker
Kartah from Brooklyn on 07/24/2013 said:
This was the first place we stayed in Maui for our honeymoon. We only stayed for two nights before headed out to Hana. Condo 103 is conveniently located in Lahaina. Steps away from the local Farmer's market and minutes drive to Front Street where all the shops and restaurants are. Lots to see and explore in the area but yet not too crowded either. But we were told that July is the low season, which is good for us. My favorite part of Condo 103 is listening and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The pool is literally steps away from our condo and the beach is also about 10 steps away. Great condo and would definitely recommend this place.
Comfy Corner Unit
Singer from Modesto CA on 07/18/2013 said:
This is one of three ground floor condos that we rented for our large group. The view was wonderful and the proximity to the water made for lovely sleeping sounds. The location of this unit on the grounds is right next to the beach gate and sand rinse shower, which may be an issue if you cherish your privacy. It was not a big deal for us as we were in a large group anyway. The bed was very comfortable :) I did feel that this unit could have used a deep cleaning, specifically the floors near the refrigerator and in the bedroom.
Had a wonderful time
Lori from NJ on 06/27/2013 said:
The condo was great. As noted in previous reviews, it was right next to the pool and shower, but that was no problem for us. We loved the convenience and also, the convenience to washer and dryer. The only thing lacking is air conditioning. The breeze and view were beautiful. The condo nicely kept, but I would have liked air conditioning. However, the price was reasonable so I would probably rent 103 again.
Right on the water!
Suzie from Portland, Oregon on 07/30/2012 said:
If you want to be just steps from the sand and surf, this is the condo for you! You can hear the surf both from the living room and the bedroom. The bedroom has its own sliding glass door out onto the lanai. The strip of beach is small but it is big enough to lay out, make sand castles, and do a little beach combing. You can snorkel right at this location when the water is calm and clear. There are sea turtles that make their appearance on a regular basis. We rented gear from a local shop just down the street. Don't bother renting boogie boards, there are some available to use at the condo as well as some pool toys. I took my kids on this vacation so the resort it is great for both couples and families. My kids loved the pool. It is small but clean and well maintained. Note though, that this a one bedroom with a pull out sofa bed in the living room. The Nohonani Condos are just north of Kaanipali Beach, one of the most beautiful and popular beaches in Maui. Lahaina is about a 10 minute drive south. The parking is free and there is Wifi. The sun sets right outside your door to the west. We saw some spectacular sunsets. The outdoor shower is just steps away from your lanai so there will be people using it often. There is no air conditioning, but you will not need it with the ocean breezes. It was nice to have a kitchen because we bought food and prepared at the condo (mostly sandwiches.) I would definitely rent this condo again. You will not believe the location to the water. That is why I rented it and I was not disappointed. Suzie - Portland, Oregon
Turtles and Sun
mms from Mammoth Lakes, CA on 06/28/2012 said:
We spent 11 nights. The location of the condo in the complex is great. It is 10 feet from the ocean. We spent a lot of time sitting on the lanai looking at the ocean, eating dinner, watching the sunset etc... The layout is great for two people. There are 3 Bbq's that were great to cook on. The pool is less than a year old and wonderful. The condo was easy to keep cool. There are several turtles that hang out in front of the condos that are easy to see. Snorkeling is good too. There are two beach chairs and an umbrella that were very handy when we went to other beaches. The onsite laundry facilities were across the hall. There are a few books in the condo. I left a few more. Very relaxing vacation!!! Note: If you want to watch TV this is not the condo for you... the wave noise is too loud to hear the TV...
Paradise waiting outside our lanai door!
Gramma She-She from Marysville, WA on 09/05/2013 said:
My husband and I (both retired) loved staying in Condo #104 at Nohonani Condos! The condo was plenty roomy for a couple with little demands. We went swimming every morning on the beach a few steps from our lanai! The fish and sea turtles were amazing and so close! The groundskeeper was so nice and kept everything clean and attended to. Only two suggestions; have the fans blowing before the arrival of guests. The condo was very hot the first night. After that it was pleasant with the fans going. 2nd suggestion - move the smoking area away from the garden. The smokers would smoke by the garbage/recycling area (appropriate), but smoke traveled right over the garden fence and into our front condo door! Yuck and gross, we aren't smokers and didn't want second hand smoke. We were lucky there were very few smokers during our week stay.
Relaxing Get away
Rowena & Joe from Sacramento on 12/10/2013 said:
A close friend of our's recommended this place to us and we loved it. The place was clean and cozy and we felt at home for having every thing we needed during our stay. The place is very family friendly and its at walking distance to different stores.
Charlotte from Carmichael, California on 12/02/2013 said:
Our stay at the condo was fabulous. The master bedroom and bath are spacious with the sound of the ocean soothing you. The kitchen, dining area and living room are nicely decorated and well-appointed with amenities. The second bedroom and hall bathroom are perfect for another couple. Absolutely, the best is the balcony overlooking the ocean. We breakfasted there every morning and relished the sunset with our dinners there in the evenings. The clean, quiet beach with huge turtles nearby was great for sunbathing and swimming. Can't wait till we can go the Condo 200 again!
seeing the turtles from our own lanai was a dream come true!
Trudy Beard from independence mo on 07/02/2013 said:
We are grandparents visiting with a 12-year-old who was drawn to the unit by the pictures which accurately depict its quality and beauty. We were very comfortable and would definitely choose this unit and location on any future visit.
Deb Robison from Sydney, Australia on 06/23/2013 said:
We were pleasantly surprised when we checked into Condo 205, it presented just as the pictures showed and more. The views from the Condo were amazing, and we enjoyed many lovely mornings eating breakfast on the balcony and watching vacationers stroll up the beach. One afternoon we were lucky to see the resident Green Sea Turtle (which was huge) sunbaking on the sand, it was a real treat! Lots of snorkelling at the beac, so remember to pack your flippers etc. The Condo was very well equipped and, and even had beach towels and a hairdryer. Location is about 15 mins to Kaanapali Beach and a very short stroll to the farmers market. I particularly enjoyed the farmers market which carried a lot of fresh fruit and Gluten free products, so I didn't have to suffer too much with my allergies. Love Condo 205, and would stay there again in a flash, if we ever returned to Maui, which I am sure we will. :) And yes to the free Wi-Fi in the unit, but no instructions on how to hook up, but quickly solved with a phone call to the owners. Thanks Tip and angela, from your friends down-under - Colin and Deb Robison
Your Home away From Home in Paradise
Chris R. from Santa Clarita, CA on 06/16/2013 said:
Nohonani Condo #205 was everything described and more. This is the perfect place for couples traveling with another couple or with one or two children. The floorplan allows for perfect privacy. They even converted the main bathroom into a private en-suite for the master bedroom. The kitchen was fully appointed for everything you would need should you decide to prepare your own meals (just add the food). The grounds are in beautiful shape, the pool is crystal clear and inviting. However, the best part of the resort is the location. The beachfront at the Nohonani is arguably the best in all of the Honokowai area, and at high tide, probably the only available beach area in Honokowai. Then there are the seas turtles. Sea turtles are a daily occurance at the Nohonani. We saw them swim by daily. And on a few occasions, they came up onto the beach. The views from the balcony and the master bedroom windows are spectacular. The owners, Tip and angela, have taken great care to furnish their condo with everything you'd need but not want to pack. In unit laundry is wonderful - you can pack light and do a quick load of laundry mid-stay. It was a short drive to Lahaina or Kapalua for shopping and dining, but the best thing we discovered was the local Farmer's Market each M-W-F that two blocks away. The beds are comfortable, the showers have good pressure, free wi-fi in the room. Cable TV (if you really need it). This is a very special location and the rates are very reasonable. It made an awesome vacation even more special. You won't be disappointed.
Best Family Holiday!
Tammy from Calgary, AB on 01/04/2013 said:
The owners of this condo thought of everything. We had all the amenities of home. The condo was located right on a private beach, quiet and tranquil.Our accomodations here were the best that we have expereinced in all of our travels. We saw sea turtles on a regular basis and were only 5 feet away from them in the water, in the evening the turtles came to sleep on the beach. We were able to see them standing about 3 feet away it was amazing our daughter fell in love with them. The condo was within walking distance to many strip malls and farmers markets as well as other public beaches. Our family hopes to come back to maui some day and when we do we will be contacting Tip and angela.
Clean and comfortable
angieB from Seattle on 05/17/2012 said:
The condo was spotless and comfortable. It was spacious and recently renovated. We had a wonderful stay, the beds were soft and the linins were new! The veiw was wonderful and the sound of the waves crashing right outside the window lulled us to sleep every night. We would definatly stay there again!
Thanks for an awesome vacation!
Amanda from Yakima, WA on 08/28/2011 said:
We had a wonderful trip to Maui, and this condo became our home away from home. The location was excellent, and we were able to walk to a convenience store, market and several restaurants. The view was incredible, and the mattresses were very comfortable. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was such a wonderful convenience! We will be staying here again the next time we visit!
Great Family Stay
jhpdx from Portland, Or on 05/27/2011 said:
#205 is a great choice for people with kids. The pool and beach are uncrowded and there is another great kids beach within walking distance (along with a farmers market, coffee shop, and great take-out) Way better than staying in a hotel with seperate bedrooms and a kitchen plus a patio that couldn't be closer to the ocean!
Cate W. from San Jose, CA on 05/18/2011 said:
We loved this condo! The location to the water couldn't have been much closer! The sound of the waves as you slept was incredible, along with watching the turtles roll around in the surf below. We loved the location to the local farmers market, coffee shop, local food dives, and taco truck- all within walking distance. Would definitely recommend this to our friends and already have. We are already looking forward to our return trip- just never soon enough to go back to paradise!
john from Wellington NV on 12/21/2010 said:
We have been coming to Nohonani for close to 20 years and this was one of our most enjoyable stays. The unit is one of the nicest in the complex and dealing with the owners was trouble free. We look forward to arranging for another stay in the the near future. This is an exceptional unit!!! John Cleary
Kathy from Connecticut on 12/09/2010 said:
This is an immaculate, well-apponted condo in the perfect spot. It is very obvious that the owners live part of the year here. It does not feel like a rental unit - it feels like a home. We sat on the lanai and watched the rising sun turn Molokai and Lanai orange and pink each morning, then watched the sunset over the islands each evening. We swam at the beach, waded in the pool, walked to the store, and watched the turtles play. All of Maui was beautiful, but my favorite spot was our "home" at 205.
A Peaceful, Relaxing Week
Jim, Helen, Skip and Lois from Houston Tx and Sacramento Ca on 07/01/2010 said:
Condo 205 provided a perfect view of the ocean and the sound of the surf. We found the condo to be very clean and comfortable with all that we needed for our stay. We checked into the condo with the info given to us and were pleasantly surprised when we entered. We were attending a wedding at the Hyatt in Lahaina along with the parents of the groom. They were in Condo 200. We will definitely return for a stay in the future. The Condo is located right on the ocean and shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc, are located near by. We were able to swim and snorkel with the sea turtles right out our lanai door. We highly recommend a stay in Condo 205.
awesome view but...
krich from san dimas, ca on 06/03/2010 said:
awesome location, awesome condo, awesome view but...they were doing construction during our whole trip which was rather disturbing. if not for that, it would have been much better.

Nonohani 205 oceanfront view was wonderful!
Mario from Aurora, CO on 05/11/2010 said:
We (two couples) stayed at Nonohani Condos #205 from 4/11 through 4/18 2010. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the condo and would certainly return there again or recommend it to others. Some of the highlights... the amenities of the condo itself, seeing the turtles from the balcony in the mornings and evenings, and the proximity of so many places to go.
Great location and wonderful condo
mboyter from Lake Norman, NC on 04/05/2010 said:
We loved staying at this condo. The price was right and the condo was very clean and comfortable. It was great to watch the whales and turtles right outside the deck. Next time we go back to Maui, we will stay here again! Thanks so much!
all you could ask for
Marsha Adler from atlanta area Lilburn, Ga on 03/24/2010 said:
The condo had anything you needed for a road trip or just a stay on the beach. We didn't mind the travel to the beaches. The area around the condo is not for swimming. The pool is tiny. It is a great relaxing place to watch the whales and the turtles galore. It was big enough for a longer stay. In fact my husband wants to rent it out for weeks. I would stay here again.
AK from Tucson, AZ on 03/04/2010 said:
Nohonani #205 was exactly what we were hoping for. Right on the beach, beautiful views, whale watching from the lanai, and no crowds. The unit was very clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed. Our first day there, we were invited by neighbors to a pupu party. That level of friendliness continued through out our stay. There weren't many families there, but that did not matter to us or our teenagers. Thank you Tip and Angela for sharing your beautiful condo with us.
drstone from tempe, arizona on 01/12/2010 said:
The condo was clean and comfortable, with all the things we needed to enjoy our stay. RIGHT on the water with lovely views, turtles galore, and a few wales off in the distance. Very much a lovely stay. Would recommend this location to anyone.
We'll be back!
Dennis and Susie McDonald from Camp Verde on 10/28/2013 said:
This was our second stay at condo 305. We had a wonderful time. The condo is so comfortable, we love that it's right on the beach. We spent a lot of time on the balcony watching the Turtles and Dolphins. We only had one negative request. The binoculars don't really work. You have to close one eye to see through them. Other than that it was a perfect vacation.
Everything we needed!
Laura from Kalama WA on 10/13/2013 said:
I was a little apprehensive to be renting a condo sight unseen with no personal friend recommendation. My other vacations in Maui have been at hotel/resorts. Nohonani 305 was great. Clean, well equipped-we had everything we needed for our stay. Ceiling fans made us perfectly comfortable despite no aC. Washer/dryer was great for towels and wet swimsuits. Watching the turtles was great. Could not find the blender top so the local manager brought one very quickly-great service. Overall great stay! Greeting gift from the owners very much appreciated!
Peter from San Diego on 10/07/2013 said:
Dear Gerald, We had a wonderful stay at your condo, thank you. The condo was comfortable, nicely appointed, well stocked and with the exception of 2 small items, everything worked fine. In the masterbed room the ceiling fan "clicked" with each revolution (maddening). I found if I reversed the direction of the fan's spin, the clicking sound at night was tolerable. We didn't actually use it anything but your garbage disposal will likley need replacing soon, when it's on, it sounds a bit like metal on metal spinning empty with the faucet running.
The Strzalka Family from Plymouth Michigan on 07/01/2013 said:
When we made our reservation to stay at this condo, I was pretty apprehensive, considering we had never been to Hawaii before. You always hear the horror stories, no worries here. The condo was spacious enough for us (a family of four), very convenient location and quiet for a relaxing vacation. My only issue was that you were so close to the ocean the waves kept waking me up! What a problem to have! The process to reserve the condo was easy, loved that we got personal letters from the owners, that really put my mind at ease. We are already talking about our next trip, but this time we will be bringing more family and renting more condos! What a wonderful experience and wonderful memories! Thank you so much!
Phenomenal view with all the amenities

We couldn't have been happier with Condo 305. The location was convenient to many restaurants, the beach, and quick jaunts to the many beaches around it. The interior of the condo was clean, spacious and stocked with all the necessities for a week away from home. The gift basket was a big hit, too! The exterior was clean. The pool temperature was heavenly, and the beach and sea turtles were a constant pleasure. The lanai couldn't be beat either. Perfect for morning coffee and watching the tide roll in. Be sure to check out the Farmers Market just down the street on M-W-F mornings, and the guys working/renting snorkeling supplies at Boss Frogs were great.

Everything worked out as expected. The set up with the keys was very convenient. The condo was well appointed with everything that we needed including a nice welcome basket. The views from the lanai, living room and master bedroom were outstanding. We saw whales and swam with sea turtles (which also slept on the beach at night) and snorkelled seeing brightly coloured fish, all at the beach at the condo. It was also very nice to be able to walk along the beach to the farmers market, a gift shop, snorkel rental and little take out. It was our first trip to Maui and so we spent a certain amount of time exploring the island, but nothing is that far away. It was lovely to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. The condo complex seemed to have lots of families around so it was a very nice atmosphere. Staying at condo 305 was a lovely, relaxing experience.

Our week in unit 305 was wonderful. The location couldn't have been better. We loved being right on the ocean and watching the whales and turtles everyday. The unit was very nice and for the most part was very well equiped. There could have been a few more glasses and wine glasses and the cooking pots and cutlery could be updated but on the whole we were very comfortable. It would be nice if the tub was removed and a shower put in the master bath. The tub really dates the condo. We could walk to the grocery store and enjoyed eating at some the nearby eateries. We would definitely go back.
Comfortable Condo with Sensational View
OC Traveler from Orange County on 02/10/2013 said:
Aloha Condos was very easy to work with and responded very quickly to our request. The condo was nice...and very clean with the exception of the carpet which looked somewhat dirty and worn. Bathrooms were great with granite counter tops and all plumbing worked great, also had a handheld showerhead which was handy. It was great to have the 1/2 bath which was extremely nice with great lighting. Kitchen was very small but well layed out. However, it was very dark because counters were a dark faux wood formica and cupboards were also stained with a dark finish. Living room was large with a very comfortable sectional couch. Master Bedroom was on the smallish side but had a comfortable bed and great view. Could use new linens as small holes in sheets. No privacy because you could see right through the window shade(bamboo roll up)for the slider when the light was on and the sliding door faced north which was viewable from other condos. Other bedroom was pretty small also but had a goodsized closet. This condo would work well for small family or one couple..it would not be too convenient for two couples unless you are really good friends. Very convenient to have the washer/dryer in the condo. Location was really good...very close to Farmer's Market. Lots of turtles on the rocks right behind the condo. It was possible to go snorkeling with the turtles right there but not very deep so would work great for children. I saw no insects at all in the condo. The condo resort could be kept cleaner. Pool and deck appeared to be kept clean but walkways & stairs & elevator could be cleaner. There was a large dead waterbug on the walkway outside the condo doors on the ground floor for the 5 days that we were there.
We're very happy you enjoyed our condo and hope you will stay with us again. If you do, please don't hesitate to phone our local contact during your visit if you find anything not to your satisfaction. She is there to help you and we'll do anything we can within reason to improve the quality of your visit. The carpet is routinely cleaned, and service is scheduled before the end of the month.
You seemed to be somewhat surprised by the condo floor plan. I hope you took the time to look at all the pictures and video on our website. We exercise extreme care to be sure our advertising is honest and accurate. It does sound as if you didn't find the kitchen light switch which is on the small pony wall.
Again we're happy that you enjoyed our condo and sensational view being right on the water. We hope you'll stay with us again soon.
Maureen and Jerry, owners
Another great visit!

This was our second time at Nohonani 305 and it did not disappoint. The welcome basket is such a nice touch. That night a huge turtle crawled up onto the beach for the night. The next morning we saw more turtles in the water in front of the condo and then dolphins and whales out in the distance. We had thought of trying a different condo this trip but were glad we stayed with 305. It is quite a unique spot! The view from the lanai cannot be beat.
Ohana away from our Ohana
Steph from Burbank, California on 12/18/2012 said:
The condo was reccomended to us by a friend who had stayed there. I booked it online. Easy! Directions, attraction brochures and instructions were mailed out ahead of time and also an e-mail. When we opened the door, an increible view of the ocean greeted us! The livingroom is spacious, bright and comfortable for several people. We found a generous gift basket with tasty treats. The condo is supplied with all your needs. You truly feel like you are at home. Our favorite place was the lanai. This condo juts out further than the others and provides a nice view in both directions. The best thing is the turtles grazing right in front of the condo. Each night at sunset, one of the turtles came up on the beach to rest. There is a beautiful pool with incredible tile work and deck. The beach is small with lounges but wasn't over crowded. We hope to come again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation home.
Very nice spot!

Nice condo, fit our plans perfectly. Overall in good condition, beds comfortable. Kitchen small but functional. The location is good , with some shopping available within walking distance. Good central location, with Lahaina a 15 minute drive, Whalers village shopping, and golf at Ka'anapali about 8 minutes away.
Good location and value for staying on Maui
Eric from Chicago, IL on 09/17/2012 said:
A nice place to stay in west Maui. The condo is a little dated and the carpet at first seems an odd choice, but it didn't really bother us. There is no aC, but if all the windows and sliding doors are open it stayed relatively cool. The view out of the lanai and the master bedroom is fantastic. The ocean is only about 30 feet away, so it will lull you to sleep every night. The front bedroom is a little less desirable, as a rooster loudly crowed every morning at 5am. The pool and the beach access are very convenient. There are a lot of large rocks in the ocean, so it's not the greatest swimming spot, but still good considering it's steps from the building. The check-in procedure and communication with aloha Condos was very smooth. The owners left a nice gift basket for our arrival.
Beyond our Expectations!
Flipanese from California on 08/29/2012 said:
We're so glad we booked at Nohonani Condo because the view alone is enough reason to just stay home and not do anything else on the Island. As soon as you walk in, you can see the beautiful Pacific Ocean across the living room. It's truly amazing to come home and wake up to this view! We had the master bedroom so sleeping to the ocean and waking up to it was really cool. We cooked breakfast and bbq'd twice and used the table on the balcony to enjoy our meals. The condo was beyond what we expected and we couldn't ask for anything more. The beds were comfortable and the sectional (sofa) appeared to be recently re-upholstered which was very obvious from looking at the original pictures. We were concerned about not having any aC unit however due to the close proximity to the ocean, we realized that it was not needed at all. The only time we felt warm in the condo is when we washed clothes and they dryer was on but it wasn't a big deal at all. The fact that we could wash our dirty-wet clothes before we left home was a nice addition too! The condo from what I seen seemed to have the best access to beach, as most of the other surrounding condo's had retaining walls and then the ocean. At least our condo had sand and chairs that you could lay out on as the pictures indicate. We saw a sea turtle the morning we were leaving which was really cool, people tend to snorkel in the water rather than swim due to the reefs however there are certain areas where you can lounge around in the water just fine. The condo was truly amazing and I wouldn't think twice about booking it again in the future! Thanks again for an awesome experience, this definitely won't be our last!
Condo was as expected. nice with a beautiful view!
Clc from Mineola, Texas on 08/19/2012 said:
As high recommendation from friends, it was worth the price, and incredible view. located just above lahaini on beach road on Maui private, third floor view, the best... the ocean was magnificent, far better than any hotel for the price. small kitchen adequate but supplied with utensils and had a coffee pot. Open the back patio doors from the master bedroom or the living room and there you are staring out into the ocean waves lapping and the two hawaii' isles that one can see. turtles too! private small beach area. You need to go!
Beautiful views of Lanai and Molokai from your room!
Kevin Y from Indianapolis, In on 07/31/2012 said:
My family had an excellent stay at condo 305. This location is awesome. First off, we were greeted with a very nice welcome basket. We ate everything during our stay! The YouTube video on their website does an excellent job of showing you what you are getting. I love the fact that it was on the 3rd floor so you could get a by nice view of the ocean and surrounding islands. We visited during July so there were no whales, but the sea turtles were plentiful, feeding in early to late afternoon basically on your own beach. Although there is no airconditioning, we found that we did not need it. The cross breeze through the condo kept the place cool. As far as the location, it is just 5 minutes north of Kaanapali and only 10-15 minutes from Lahaina. My only suggestion is to follow Chucks (from aloha Condos) suggestion of buying food and supplies from the Kapahului area when arriving, assuming that is the airport you are flying into. They have a Walmart and Costco there. By the condo there are a few grocery stores but they are very expensive by mainland standards. When we were there, it was by quiet and secluded. Just a few families at the pool at one time. Although all beaches are public, you basically have a beach to yourself do to the surrounding properties having retaining walls. (Nohonani has a sand beach). Lastly, the communication from Chuck was great. I received reminder emails, with easy to follow instructions and directions. We will definitely stay at this property again!!!
Great condo community
Barb M from Wichita, KS on 07/11/2012 said:
Nahonani is a fantastic condo community. The pool, private beach and friendly people made the visit well worth while. Condo 305 has spectular sun set views as it faces directly west. I like to take pictures, so I made sure we were always back home by sun set. We participated in the conch shell custom every night as the sun set as well- got to know many other people during sun set. The condo itself is ok. The pluses include relatively comfortable master bed, remodeled bathrooms, and in-condo laudry. Just a couple things that put this condo into the "average" category for me: 1) kitchen is very small and very dark (and hot because no cross winds since it is tucked into a corner) 2) the sectional, while very comfortable, was very old and dirty. Don't set any electronics on the sectional as they will be filled with sand when you pick them up- but hey you are on the beach, so I guess some of that is to be expected. I should have put a clean sheet over the sectional and everything would have been just fine, as it is very comfortable. The on-site contact was fantastic and responsive. I had to call on a couple of very minor things and she came out and fixed them immediately- no issues what so ever.
We were at the condo in june and noticed that the sectional was showing wear (and causing it to appear dirty.) We arranged to have it reupholstered as soon as was possible and it was returned today. It's beautiful. We have the condo professionally cleaned after every guest and have never noticed or had a complaint of sand. We're happy you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

A perfect holiday!
Dana from Boston on 07/05/2012 said:
This is a gorgeous condo with a spectacular view! Upon opening the front door, you see across the lovely living room right out on to the Pacific Ocean and Molokai. It's absolutely stunning. There was a great welcome basket filled with goodies, which was a delight after 12 hours on a plane. The condo itself is immaculate and comfortable. The kitchen was very useful and everything worked perfectly. The location is also great. Some days we went north to surfing beaches; other days we went to Lahaina to Baby Beach to hang with locals and nap under the trees on the beach. Every night we'd sit on the Nohonani Beach area and watch the sea turtles. It was the best vacation ever and we can't wait to return!
A great family week in Maui
Wally from Napa on 06/19/2012 said:
The condo was excellent for our family vacation to Maui. We all enjoyed watching the sunset and the giant sea turtles from the balcony and the location was perfect. Easy access to all the activities and beaches that we wanted as well as swimming in the pool or ocean on site. The condo itself was well kept and spacious. We loved it!
The best place to stay
Khan from Salt Lake City on 05/15/2012 said:
This place is absolutely a must. This condo is right next to the ocean, conveniently located to daily grocery and organic (Vegan as well) place. Very quiet, parking was not difficult. Pool was clean and overall, I highly rate it. We had a toddler, and three of us enjoyed staying at this place. We were able to watch those sea turtles all the time (in October). The balcony was just next to the ocean, the best place to have family lunch/dinner. If we ever come to Maui, this would be our place to stay.
Ross from Vancouver, WA on 03/29/2012 said:
It was a great condo that was perfect for us to stay in. There were turtle sightings and whales galore it was amazing. Snorkeling adventures were everywhere and we enjoyed it alot.
Cozy beach front
Dee from Victoria, BC on 01/11/2012 said:
Well loved well equips condo, not high end, but cozy and quaint. Close to the ocean, walking distance to great coffee and some shops. Saw turtles every morning and humpbacks in the distance. Kids had a great time in the pool and the tiny pocket beach. Unit 305 has more privacy than other units so would recommend for that reason. Great sunsets too!! In suite laundry was a bonus but no maid service what you pay for is the cleaning when you leave.
Dexter from Fair Oaks, CA on 12/13/2011 said:
The unit was immaculate. The location couldn't be better and the views from the bedroom and living room were spectacular. I wouldn't think of any other place to stay next time we visit.
Beautiful and relaxing stay...
Karen from Seattle on 11/22/2011 said:
We stayed at your lovely condo for a week in mid-October and had a wonderful time. The condo itself was very neat and clean. Our kids shared the room with the 2 beds and my husband and I stayed in the ocean front room. The kitchen had everything we needed (except for a pitcher for lemonade but we made do with the blender pitcher) and everything worked well. It was wonderful falling asleep (and waking up) to the sound of the waves hitting the beach every day. We made great use out of the lanai and ate outside most days. Our girls loved swimming in the pool every afternoon and were the only ones swimming on most days. We used the bbq by the pool several times too and it was also very clean. The beach out front was great for building sandcastles and playing. The entire complex was quiet and well taken care of. The condo is located just minutes from some great beaches (arrive early - like before 9 if you want to find parking) and restaurants and the small local market is within walking distance. There is a Snorkel Bob's just up the road too if you want to rent snorkel gear (and a Subway for packing picnic lunches). Turtle watching from the deck was a thrill and we even saw a group of dolphins pass by one afternoon. We will definitely be back again!!

We stayed at #305 with our grown-up sons for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. Arriving late at night to an inviting well-light flat we instantly felt at home. Thanks to the sound advice from the owners and the property manager we had all the best pics and enjoyed our stay very much. Easy access to the beach, privacy on the lanai, excellent natural air-condition, good beds, tv plus internet - who could ask for more? We would like to come back and recommend this condo to everyone.

#305 is simply awesome!
Bakers from San Diego on 08/09/2011 said:
After returning from our 10 day vacation at Nohonani's unit #305, I went to the website to show it to a friend. I was really surprised to see the negative previous review. Don't believe it. My family of 5 has stayed at unit #305 several times, and since we found it we won't stay anywhere else. The unit is clean, comfortable and well appointed. Linens and towels were all new or near new. The bathrooms have been remodeled. The kitchen is a little small, but more than adequate for a vacation. The owners have gone the extra mile to make you feel at home and provide extras (books, games, information on the area, etc.) I really enjoyed the wide screen TV in the living room and the new HD TV in the master bedroom. And, as many other reviewers already stated, the location could not be better. This condo has a corner balcony/lanai that makes the amazing sunsets and turtle viewing even better than other units at the Nohonani - and unit more private. The pool area has just been completely redone, with a beautiful tile mural of turtles. Lastly, the Nohonani has a sandy beach out front of the pool area. Most condos in the area lack a sandy beach. I could go on and on... For me and my family, we only stay at Nohonani #305 - and we're not surprised that many people return to this same condo year after year.
Nancy Dent from Calgary Alberta on 04/18/2011 said:
The view was really nice but the unit was poorly maintained. It was dirty. Light bulbs were burned out everywhere. Bathroom shower did not even have a soap dish. Towels were old and worn out.Carpet was dirty with stains everywhere. Scattered rugs were a tripping hazard in the hallway.We had difficulty on arrival as the exterior light was out so we had to find something to illuminate the lock box to get in.We were really disappointed.
Dear Nancy, We were so surprised to read your comments. We take great pride in our condo as you can tell by previous guest reviews. We have the number of our local contact person on the refrigerator of the condo and are so sorry that you did not call her to take care of these things. We recently had had her buy new bedding and the towels were replaced a short time ago. We have the condo professionally cleaned after every guest leaves. I can't imagine what could have gone wrong for you. We'll be talking with both our contact person and cleaning company. We definitely will take care of this situation.
Maureen, owner Nohonani 305.
Love this place!
Maui enthusiast from Portland, OR on 12/18/2010 said:
Everything was great! Easy to find, great location, easy check in, great welcome basket waiting for us - nice touch! And what a view from the lanai! Constant viewing of turtles directly in front of condo! We prefer this to the 'resort' areas -much more laid back. Our boys are ages 20 and 23 and they loved it as well. It was always nice to come home to 305 in the evenings and relax on the lanai and BBQ a nice dinner. The owners were very accessible by phone when needed. Bill, one of the resident managers, was very helpful as well. We would definitely recommend this condo and hope to come back to it in the future!

Better than a home away from home!
Kaz from Melbourne, Australia on 07/10/2010 said:
Condo 305 has all of the comforts of home with the added bonus of the most amazing view and experiences right there in front of you! My family loved having the choice of being able to walk down and swim right in the ocean or in the swimming pool. And turtles feed right there in front of the condos - big turtles!! The location is fantastic with shops just down the road but we still had a car which made discovering Maui much easier. One point which might put people off is that there is no air conditioning, but let me tell you it is not necessary. The breeze coming straight off the sea or even from down the hill behind is more than enough to cool the condo. We loved staying at the Nohonani and Condo 305 had everything we needed. It's kept a piece of my heart.

Emily Johnson from Portland on 06/16/2010 said:
We had a wonderful stay in this condo! The weather was upper 80's so we spent alot of time at the beach right in front of the condo. It was a nice private beach and there was also a pool right next to it. The kids had a blast playing in the sand and water. The condo had sand toys, lawn chairs, and boogie boards all available to use anytime. It was a comfortable atmosphere inside and we really liked having the kitchen and washer/dryer. The farmers market a couple blocks down had some good finds too! The only thing we missed out on was air conditioning.
we're so happy you enjoyed our condo and had such a wonderful time. It means a lot to us. We were surprised, though, that you thought you had missed out on air conditioning. With our condo being right on the water with the opposite side of the condo open to the outside above the gardens, and with the gentle trade winds, we have never felt the need for air conditioning.
We have had other guests mention being surprised in Hawaii not needing air conditioning at our condo. And it would mean having to close the windows missing out on the sound of the surf and the trade winds. We are pleased, though, that you enjoyed our condo and hope you'll come again.
Relaxing and comfortable

Our working vacation turned into a complete rediscovery of Maui'
Margie and Bob Simms from Waimea, Big Island of Hawaii on 04/29/2010 said:
My husband and I have lived in the islands for more than forty years, and the last time we had a Maui vacation was in the 70's. Things have changed a lot since then, but we were pleasantly surprised to find Maui still as beautiful as we remembered and not as congested as we'd expected. We had business on Maui, but in between we did lots of sightseeing and kicking back at this beautiful oceanfront refuge. Our time at the Nohonani Condos, conveniently located near resorts, restaurants, markets and shops was so very restful and enjoyable. ( We heartily recommend the "Ohana Taco" wagon, found after 6 pm within walking distance of the Condos.) Greeted by a thoughtful gift basket of island treats, we slid open the lanai doors to breathe in the fresh salt air. The views of Molokai and Lanai changed hourly with the glorious weather and the rising and setting sun. Rainbows appearing, whales spouting and breaching through the channel, turtles and manta rays playing in the shore break. It was a real treat for us Big Islanders and we definitely look forward to a future jaunt to the Valley Isle and the "home-away-from-home" comfort of Nohonani Condo #305!
Kayda from Calgary, AB on 04/22/2010 said:
Normally condos or hotels do not quite live up to their pictures or description but #305 Nohonani surpassed our expectations. The condo is in the most beautiful location we could imagine. It is right on the edge of the ocean, and the view could not be better. We saw numerous Humpback Whales as well as giant sea turtles feeding right in front of our lanai. We ate most of our meals in as you could not get a better table at any restaurant. The sunsets and rainbows were spectacular, and the barbecues were always available. The beds were comfortable as was the temperature in the condo, thanks to a lovely cross breeze. It was clean and very pretty. The check in process was easy and hassle free. The condo is well stocked, and includes the use beach towels, hair dryer, boogie boards, books, and basic spices and kitchen supplies. We would highly recommend #305 Nohonani Condos.
Could not have been a better place to stay!
3 Generations of Women Getaway from New Mexico on 04/17/2010 said:
After spending countless hours searching the internet for just the right place, I hit upon Nohonani Condos and was instantly drawn to it. The photos do not do it justice. Chuck was so helpful in the planning, and before we even left home I was surprised to receive a welcoming letter from the owners with tips for our stay---plus a wonderful welcome basket was waiting for us in the condo. When we opened the door, saw the ocean and heard the waves, I knew this WAS just the right place. We had a wonderful week and will always remember our stay. The only minor complaint was that the bathtub/shower was a bit below the standard of the rest of the condo--everything else was great! We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Christmas Stay at Nohonani 305
SteveDebJoJoJo from Peachtree City, GA on 01/14/2010 said:
First trip to Maui and couldn't be happier with our week long stay in this unit. Of the 4 condos we resided in during our trip (December 18-January 6), this was by far the nicest and most comfortable. Booking the condo was easy (used vrbo to search and check availability and virtual tours, videos to view most properties). The owner was very patient and friendly. We checked in Christmas Eve day after a quick flight from Oahu and were blown away. The view of the water and Molokai was terrific. Very peaceful. The elevator and luggage dolly made moving in easy. The unit is very roomy, especially the living room. We have 3 children (11, 9, 7) and we all slept fine. The master bedroom has a great view and its own door to the lanai. Sleeping to the sound of waves is incredible. The high quality ceiling fans and lots of cross-ventilation kept the unit cool. Extras like games for the kids, Maui guidebooks, and the welcome basket were an unexpected pleasant surprise. The area is very nice. Not congested like the nearby resort areas. ABC store is a couple blocks away and a Safeway is a 10 minute drive. We saw turtles right below us from the lanai every morning and whales every day. The owner provides binoculars which made whale watching much easier. Saw some incredible views of the full moon setting over the ocean, however the highlight during our stay was being greeted with a spectacular double rainbow over the ocean in front of Molokai on Christmas morning! Thanks so much for opening your home to us. Our family will always remember this trip.

compostqueen from West Hills, CA on 12/03/2009 said:
This was our first experience renting a condo on line. It could not have been easier. The "virtual tour" of unit 305 was exactly as we found it...clean, comfortable and well stocked with all the necessities and many extras. Internet access was a very pleasant surprise. We also appreciated the travel guide and guest book in the unit. They provided tons of local to-do and dining tips. It is a relatively small and intimate complex so it was easy to strike up conversations around the pool, beach or BBQ grills, all the more homey. If I had to find a complaint, it would be that there is only one shower (+ a half bath). When the 4 of us would come in from the beach or a day trip we would have to take turns showering. If you are in no hurry, then this is no problem...just chill on the lanai and enjoy the wonderful view til it's your turn. We would absolutely recommend this unit.
Glorius view, comfy condo in Maui
Marge D. from Paradise, CA on 10/09/2009 said:
What a wonderful welcome -- a gift basket and special coffee started off our stay in a well-decorated and comfortable condo. And stepping into the room was like stepping into a photo --- the view of the ocean was a postcard! We were close to shopping, good restaurants (highly recommend Kimo's), and historic Lahaina, with easy parking and a quieter road. One drawback was the lack of air-conditioning in the heat wave we found ourselves in, but the fans did help. We would definitely return - and recommend the place to friends and family.
The perfect way to end a perfect vacation
Ilex C from West Chester, OH on 08/20/2009 said:
Our family vacation was spent island hopping with Maui being our final destination. We were looking forward to relaxing for the last few days on the ocean and Nohonani #305 was the perfect setting! It was right on the ocean, with a beach and swimming pool and very close to Lahaina and our other planned activities (the Old Lahaina Luau, Ka'anapali Ziplining with Skyline Eco-Adventures, and snorkeling). The condo was well-appointed and obviously well cared-for. The stacked laundry equipment was extremely handy and the kitchen was fully-stocked for all of our needs. Bedding and towels were in great condition as were all of the furniture, appliances and other furnishings. The kids were very pleased to have the extensive TV selections and I LOVED having the high-speed internet connection so I could continue blogging about our wonderful trip. There was no air-conditioning, but when I go to the ocean I WANT to have the windows open in order to enjoy the sounds of the surf! Plus, with the wind from the east coming through the front windows of the condo and the ocean breezes coming in from the back, the ceiling fans in every room did an excellent job of providing circulation and dissipating the heat of the day when it was time to sleep at night. Chuck the rental agent, was great to work with, always responding quickly to questions and helping us make our time there so enjoyable. The owners, the Kelly's, provided a driving map and suggestions for supply shopping well in advance in addition to a welcome gift upon arrival. We are very pleased to highly recommend this condo!

Our three teenage sons summed it up best when they first walked thru the door here... "oh wow!" (or something like that!) We were awed, inspired, ecstatic, and elated about the view! We were pleased to see a very nice welcome basket awaiting our arrival, too! The place was very clean, well-stocked, comfortable (beds and pillows were fantastic), and felt like home. We all enjoyed seeing the sea turtles all the time out front (and swimming w/ them, too!) The location was very centralized and made it very easy to get just about anywhere. Listening to the waves breaking thru the day and night was very relaxing. This was JUST as it was advertised and even better than we expected. We have already recommended it to several friends and hope to return soon for some whale-watching! The only negative was the fact that it is all the way in Hawaii! :) we wish it was closer so we could enjoy it more! Thanks!
What a view
Great view from Colorado on 07/28/2009 said:
This condo has an awesome location and is right on the ocean. The master bedroom is also on the ocean front and you are lured to sleep with the sound of the waves. We like being on the 3rd floor for the vast ocean view. The gass grills right on the ocean make for a beautiful place to cook dinner as the kitchen is way to hot to cook in. If you plan on cooking much, it is not very equipped for that. Only the minimal necessities in the kitchen. Other things that would really upgrade the unit is a better master bed mattress and blinds to block the heat of the afternoon. The blinds on the lanai were not helpful in blocking the sun and heat from warming up the unit to an unbearable temp.

A nice condo with a great view. We were there at the end of whale season and saw a few tail slaps and one breach. The pool was nice and clean. While we were there some weather came in and the surf was perhaps too big to swim but the beach is beautiful. Coral heads abound and it should be great for snorkeling. Many turtles live in the area and feed right out front during high tide. At one point we counted 5 right out in front of the grill area. Would stay again.

Great location, great view, great decor, great location, just great..... Can't say more...
Beautiful and Serene!
Kevin & Donna from Dallas, Texas on 04/23/2009 said:
Our family had a wonderful time on Maui. Our condo (#305) at the Nohonani was everything we wanted and more! Each morning we drank coffee on the lani. It was beautiful to watch the clouds explode into pinks and gold as the sun rose above the mountain behind us. We snorkeled right off the beach of our condo and saw beautiful fish, sea urchins, and sea turtles! The owners were so thoughtful, and supplied many extras including Hawaiian CD's and binoculars. In the evenings we would watch the most beautiful, breath taking sunsets from the lani and then be rocked to sleep by the ocean waves! We would recommend the Nohonani #305 to anyone who wants to enjoy Maui to its fullest. Aloha!

Great location, lovely condo
Leann from British Columbia, Canada on 04/13/2009 said:
Our family of five had a wonderful vacation staying in Rm 305 at the Nohonani. The location was perfect. You can't get any closer to the ocean and we enjoyed watching all the whales and seaturtles from our large deck. The condo was spacious, clean and very well supplied. Beds were very comfortable too. I would definitely recommend this particular condo at the Nohonani.
Beauty, beauty, beauty
Missing a great view! from Michigan on 04/10/2009 said:
The people at this rental property we wonderful. The owner of the condo was great to work with. They have been updating their condo, but the needs are minor and the could NOT improve the VIEW! The sounds of the crashing waves and the sites of the sunsets were worth every cent. Great experience; as a couple or with children. The private beach and the residents on site make it a wonderful venue to enjoy in any capacity.
Dreaming of Maui

We had a wonderful time at the Nohonani Condo's. We fell a sleep each night and a woke to the sounds of the waves. Watching the whales from the lani was incrediable.The ocean view is outstanding. The condo was really comfortable,nicely updated,and it had everything we needed. I especially appreciated the comfortable bed. Seems like a funny thing to comment on, but it was nice! We can not wait to come back.
Bob from Santa Rosa CA on 04/01/2009 said:
Condo is as close as one cold possibly get to the beach. Fabulous views. Extremely well equipped (dishes, books, etc). Only downside -- and it's a very minor one -- is that the entrance to the property is a little dreary, and the elevator is extremely slow. Also, we had been able to sign up for Wifi at the place we had previously stayed at (for $40 per weeek), and we did miss that amenity a little.
Sunsets and turtles,Oh My
Luci from Lafayette,Colorado on 10/04/2013 said:
Home was smaller than appeared in pictures so a little cramped with six people. Location was literally on the beach when sitting on the lanai!!! Needs updating and kitchen was very small. Awesome sunsets from our oceanview location and we saw turtles every day either in the water or on the beach.
Mahalo for the review, Luci. Weâre very glad you enjoyed your stay. I wanted to let everyone know that the kitchen is undergoing a complete remodel right now.

Fabulous ocean front condo
Craig from Havertown, Pa. on 08/04/2013 said:
We had a fantastic ten day stay. Ocean views from all the bedrooms with two islands across the straight. We saw turtles everyday and several came up and spent the night on the beach. We also saw porpoise and seals from the deck. I loved that you could sit on the deck with complete privacy unless you were near the rail on the side. We toured most of the island and this is one of the best locations in Maui.
We will be back!
Malone Family from Everett, WA on 07/06/2013 said:
Condo 403 is a great place to stay. I traveled with 2 other adults, as well as 2 teens and a child. The 6 of us fit very comfortably in this unit. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen is small, but the kitchen has everything (and I mean everything) you could possibly need to put together any meal. The cupboards are stocked with all the things you don't bring on vacation, such as salt and pepper and coffee filters. Upon arrival, the owners had a gorgeous gift basket for us on the table. It was stocked with all sorts of island treats. Such a nice touch! The view from this place is amazing. I slept in the first floor room and was lulled to sleep every night, and woken up every morning by the sounds of the waves lapping against the beach. Pure bliss! The deck off this unit is perfectly sized, a great place to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. It also has a view both of the ocean and of the pool, which is great for keeping an eye on teens who are old enough to play in the water, but still need to be checked on from time to time. We had turtles come up on the beach numerous times during our stay and one day a family of 6 of these lovely creatures swam just off shore for several hours. The beach itself is private and perfect for making sand castles, or just lying on one of the many chaise lounges and enjoying some time in the sun. The caretaker was around every day, washing sand off the walkways, cleaning the pool, and keeping the place in tip top shape. The parking lot is of sufficient size, and you can't beat how easy it is to get from the car to the elevator. So much nicer than one of the big hotels! From the ease of booking this room online, to the helpful and informative emails from Chuck about the rental, to the gorgeous spacious room right on the ocean, there is no place I'd rather stay on my next trip to Maui.
Great family vacation!
Jan from Anaheim, CA on 06/27/2013 said:
We really enjoyed being able to be "home" for our vacation. We are not the fancy high rise hotel type of people and liked that we could have all the comforts of home right on the beach. Private pool, which was never busy and snorkling just over the wall.
Best trip ever!!!
Jolene from Peoria on 06/05/2013 said:
Aloha, I have dreamed of a Maui vacation for as long as I can remember. This was it. Me, my husband, 12yr old daughter & 17yr old son stayed in Nohonani #403. We are already planning our next trip. The no hassle process of booking, was a breeze. The photos on the website are accurate. The place was comfortable and clean. My kids took full advantage of the boogie boards and sand toys. We were able to BBQ by the beach at sunset. Everything we needed was provided. We used the ice chest for a 12 hr trip to Hana. A beautiful location, walking distance to grocery stores and shops. Short drive to Laua, fine dining, boat trips and adventure. Life is good!! This place was amazing because it let us experience Maui in our own way, without resort or hotel expences. Mahalo to Erin & Mario for the gift basket. We arrived about 11pm, hungry, so the gifts of food were very appreciated. If your looking for fancy smanchy, this isn't the place for you. If location, comfort, price, and sea turtles on the beach every day, is your wish, this is it. Don't forget the romantic sunsets...I miss falling asleep to the sound of the waves. We all had an awesome time. Blessings, Jolene
Becki H from Red Bluff on 05/25/2013 said:
We stayed in May and the condo was very comfortable. They are equipped with all the necessities you need, boogie boards , iron, ice chest it was very well supplied. Best part of the trip was the turtle who visited us everyday but one during our stay,our grandson loved it.
Paula from Rancho Cucamonga, Ca on 05/09/2013 said:
This is our second time staying at this condo. We love the location, the beach, and the condo is great! Love seeing turtles everyday! Reef is right outside your condo. No need to go someplace else to snorkel, you can do it right in front of condo. Beds are very comfortable. They have everything you will need for your stay. We will for sure stay again. Mahalo! Jack and Paula
GOOD TIMES! from Norco Ca. on 05/03/2013 said:
We were very pleased with our stay at the 403. Turtles, eels, whales, snorkeling all were great. We would highly recommend the condo. The views were great,furnishings great. Beds very comfy with the sea sounds as a bonus.Would we do it again? You bet! Thanks Chuck.
Dano Todd from Oceanside, CA on 04/21/2013 said:
We stayed for a week with our daughter and two grandsons (9 & 11. The unit was clean and exactly as represented. A nice gift basket of coffee, cookies, and sweets welcomed us to a classic Maui sunset, thanks Chuck!). The boys were up at dawn checking out whales tail slapping and breaching in the Molokai channel. Green Turtles were in abundance. One day there were five turtles feeding in the quite water immediately below us. The pool was clean and refreshing after a walk down the coast. Since this unit is above and on the end of the building, pool noise was never an issue and our views of the ocean and islands were maximized. We loved the sound of the surf and breaking waves. Since you are literally over the water, you will hear crashing waves. We had some high surf during our stay. Resident caretaker does a good job of maintaining the facility. Beds were exceptionally comfortable. The Japanese sliding screens offered cool accents. Our day trips included Haliaukla, Molokini snorkle trip, and drive up to North shore to see Dragons Teeth below Hyatt Regency, Kaanapali Beach Black Rock, and Honolua Bay to watch the surfers. Very cool. Nice local feel to complex that is in walking distance to local shops and businesses.
Tara from Oklahoma on 03/26/2013 said:
My family and I had an amazing time. The condo was perfect. The views are amazing, so amazing it's hard to describe in words. The whale watching was so awesome and breath taking. They were everywhere, it's like they were putting on a show for us! And the turtles would come up on the beach each day and stay for awhile. The sunsets were even more breath taking. We met some nice people during our stay, and enjoyed the conch shell blowing at sunset each night. The manager Mark was great and took very good care of us. I would highly recommend this place! As others have said, the kitchen is small, but we managed to get around just great. There have been some updates to the condo and it's very very nice. Again, as others have said the bathrooms need updated, but worked great for us. There is a grocery store close, farmers market, a place to rent snorkel gear. If you are a runner, its very convenient to run on the sidewalks. The pool was a nice bonus for relaxing during the day and in the evening! I would recommend this condo and the entire complex!
What a View
Socalhal from Thousand Oaks on 03/06/2013 said:
There is no better view for whale watching and turtle watching. Each bedroom has an oceanfront view. The condo is comfortable and the bedrooms and common area has been upgraded. Both bathrooms, while functional, are a bit dated. The "galley" kitchen can only accomodate one person at a time, but we managed quite nicely. Having the barbecue downstairs was a nice feature. The beach and pool were great. This is a special place and I know I will be coming back.

L Pearson from Gabriola Island on 02/07/2013 said:
My family and I stayed here for 11 days and the condo was perfectly stocked with everything that we needed. We saw whales and turtles from the balcony every day. The condo was very spacious and easily accomodated all five of us.

Frank from Regina, Canada on 01/18/2013 said:
Unit is dated and could use some updating but certainly has everything you need. You can see sea turtles daily and also whales in season. Good location. Had lots of room for a party of seven.
sleeping by the sea
Christine from Winnipeg on 01/16/2013 said:
What a perfect home away from home. It was everything we dreamed of and more...seeing sea turtles, whales, sunsets, surfers, crabs and glorious rainbows all from our lanai had an other world feeling.Guess that is why they call it Paradise. There was even a wedding on our beach. We were close to Subway, and other take out and groceries and even the ever helpful aBC store so we always had whatever we needed. It was an easy drive to a great blowhole( though after a windy night there were some big rocks on the road). We enjoyed the boogie boards and pair of flippers, luxurious beach towels, and even used the coolers and ice packs provided. The dishes had fun island designs. Everything was very clean and had so much island character. Don't want to sound unrealistic but we really were able to relax and enjoy our stay here, and were all so sad to leave. All 6 of us had enough room to get a bit of space from each other too. It was actually a little hard to hear each other on the lanai with the crashing waves. Sleeping with that noise was soothing but did take a little getting used to- which we were thrilled to do. Mahalo for a wonderful time in Maui. We would want to rent this exact room again.
Knowles Family from Washington State on 01/03/2013 said:
Great View, enough room to have 6 people, but wish it would have had a love seat a long with the couch. Seems like there was not enough comfortable space to relax after a long day in Maui with 6 people. Kitchen was very small, but got used to it after a few days, dish washer worked Fab!!! Freg took at least 12 hours to get cold after we put food in it, but once it was cold worked fine. Hate the fact that the freg had no door holders so you could not use the full use of the freg because they were broke or lost and never replaced. Also the dryer is a fire hazard!!! The lint trap would fall out of the dryer when using it because it was missing a prong and behind the lint trap was so full of lint and sand! Please look into this!!! Needs professional cleaning from a washer dryer company. I am betting a fire will take place in condo 403 if you do not look into this very serious issue! Maybe another fan for the up stairs smaller bedroom and someone to clean the windows inside and out of condo for better views in this great ocean side condo. Loved the pool and beach, this made the condo even better and being on the top floor rocked!!! Bbq was great, so many nice things about this condo, wish you would have had numbered and assigned parking. Two nights in a row, no parking space for us at all, had to park in the private space and put a note on our van that we had no space to park other than the private spot and worried all night long we would be towed! If you took care of some of the things listed in this info on our stay, your condo would be so much better! Really worried about that dryer, we had a house fire in our home, you don't ever want that in your condo and I am sure your neighbors don't either!!!
Thanks for taking time to review your visit and weâre glad you enjoyed the stay. I want to assure you that the dryer vent has been repaired. If you stay with us again (and I hope that you will), please donât hesitate to phone your local contact if you experience any difficulty. Your local contact is there to assist you, and will act quickly to help you. Since becoming owners of this condo we have done many upgrades including flooring and furnishings and a kitchen upgrade is in the planning stage. I regret that your expectations exceeded the actual accommodation, but I do think you will agree that our online photos and video very accurately represent the condo as really exists.

Beachfront, luxurious family vacationing.
Cal from San Diego on 07/05/2012 said:
The 3 bedrooms and pull out sofabed easily accomodated the 5 adults and 2 boys. The view overlooking the beach was beautiful every morning and afternoon and provided an excellent view of the afternoon turtles munching on the seaweed on the beach in front of the condo. Used the 2 boogie boards and even left a third which we found on the beach. The snorkel and fins also were used. The location was outstanding. It's a short walk to a Farmers Market, coffee shop. A fish market & deli, supermarket, convenience store, several restaurants are only short drives away. About 10 - 15 minutes drive away are Whalers Village Mall and Lahaina Cannery Mall. On the down side: 1. The lower bathroom fan was not working 2. The floor under the sofabed needed vacuuming. But, all in all our family had a great time. I would recommend buying a small 3 cup rice cooker. It would appeal to asian families.
Best vacation and location!!
Paula from Rancho Cucamonga CA on 05/02/2012 said:
Location location location!! The condo was great! Beds were very comfortable. The beach access was great. It is like having your own personal beach area. We saw sea turtles and swam with them daily. The tropical fish were a few steps into the water!! Our family claims this was the best vacation ever! We plan on returning to stay again! Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Great place to stay!
Kelly from Minnetonka, MN on 04/13/2012 said:
From start to finish our stay at 403 was fantastic. Chuck was always very prompt in replying to emails and questions. The condo is located in a nice area with smaller buildings and stores within walking distance. Also close to other beaches on the West side, this made it easy to check out several different beaches during our week long stay. When we weren't out taking in the beauty of the island we sat on the balcony and watched the turtles coming in and out to feed and looked for whale action. Having the boogie boards available to us was also nice, one less thing to rent, we made good use of them. The grills on site were really nice and worked great. I would highly recommend staying here, it is close to so many places and a great way to be able to enjoy Maui and the ocean every minute you are visiting. The only bad thing about staying here was having to leave!
Great location and views, not too crowded, good price
Peter S from 294213 on 01/02/2012 said:
3 BR top floor condo with excellent views out and down the beach. Nice sandy beach and pool, which is unusual for Honokowai condos. The condo was strangely renovated, with a smallish living room and kitchen, but larger bedrooms. It still needed an upgrade for the kitchen. Also, the upstairs master BR has an open ceiling to the guest room, so if parents are planning for some privacy from the kids - forget it ! All-in-all I would recommend this place to someone who has not been to Hawaii before. It's close to lots of activities, especially in Lahaina, but is quite a drive from Road to Hana or Haleakala. I recommend going up to Napili beach for sunning and snorkeling, and DT Fleming for boogie boarding. both are within 10 minute drive. There is good snorkeling at Nohonani if you go straight out about 100 yards. Well tended grounds and lush plant life really added to the stay.
Terrific location and view, comfortable condo.
Seadoyles from Seattle on 11/23/2011 said:
We spent 10 nights at 403 in Nov 2011. We were 2 couples. I especially appreciated that the condo really has 2 master suites along with a 3rd bedroom. We spent many hours on the lanai enjoying the expansive views. New paint throughout the condo looked good. Bathrooms, kitchen and carpet are overdue for updates. We loved the snorkeling at our own private beach. We swam near giant sea turtles daily and among hundreds of reef fish. Near shore is a lava/coral reef which is good, but 200 yards out from shore is a spectacular reef with clear deep water. I recommend Nohonani 403 and would stay there again.
Dana from Kirkland Washington on 10/07/2011 said:
Nohonani Condo 403 was everything we wanted and much more. We stayed there from Sept. 26-Oct. 3rd and found it very quiet and very restful. We were a party of seven and when we walked in we were thrilled with the size and cleanliness of the condo. More thrilling was the ocean view and being right on the beach. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves was simply heavenly. We usually ate breakfast on the lanai and every day, around noon or so we were so lucky to watch the wonderful sea turtles swimming. Due to the rocky area right as you enter the water from the beach swimming was not always the best but my husband, daughter and her friend did enjoy going snorkeling a few times. The swimming pool was wonderful and we usually had it to ourselves. The location of the Condo is fabulous. You can walk to several different places, such as the grocery store, coffee shop, small farmers market, even a yummy taco truck that was there most evenings. Boss Frog is right down the street and that is where we rented our snorkeling equipment. Everybody we met was very friendly and very helpful. We felt fortunate to be less than 5 minutes from Kaanapali Beach and Whalers Village. Our all time favorite beach which was about 10 minutes away was Kapalua Bay Beach located in Napili. If you want to snorkel this is the place to go. If we ever get the chance to return to Maui we would stay at Nohonani condos and resort again. It truly felt like home away from home and it was very difficult to leave.
Comfortable stay in Lahaina
Darcy from Calgary, Alberta on 10/02/2011 said:
Our stay involved two sets of parents, one infant and two toddlers. Location and access to beach and pool on the property were excellent. Kids enjoyed both the pool and the beach. The regular and daily sea turtle observations from the balcony were fun. The 403 unit is a bit dated, could use a bit of soundproofing and cosmetic renos, but the views from this suite are exceptional and overall the suite is well equipped and stocked to accomodate 4 adults and 3 kids. Great location in terms of closeness to grocery stores, various restaurants (Maui Tacos, Famous Dave's) and the public beaches (if you have kids ask about Baby Beach, great find if you have kids). Check in / check out and directions were all seamless and helpful. Thanks for accomdating us Chuck! Much appreciated. Overall a great week in Maui in a comfortable suite, close to everything, with a great view overlooking the ocean.
Glorious time in Maui
Glorious time in Maui! from Moraga, CA on 09/19/2011 said:
#403 was instrumental to the 8 glorious days we spent in Maui. The condo was roomy, clean & well equipped for a family of 5 incl. 2 teen girls and 1 preteen boy. We had absolutely no issues with any type of tropical pests. We saved lots of $$ by cooking in the well equipped kitchen & snorkeling 3-4x a day at the condo's beach. Sunrise and sunsets were beautiful. Also saw turles and eagle rays very close to the beach and dolphins passing by past the reef. Warm constant breezes kept the condo cool. Laniuopoko beach is only a 15 minute drive for good surfing. Great neighbors, too! Can't wait to go back and be that relaxed again!
Beautiful view, gross place to stay
Tammy0927 from NJ on 07/21/2011 said:
Many reviews talk about the beautiful views. And this place definitely has an amazing view from the main living area. You will see sea turtles swimming by. However, the pictures make it look like the owners have really updated this place. Not true! All they did was put in some new furniture and bedspreads. The kitchen is gross with cracked tiles and ants everywhere. We were travelling with 2 babies. It's a lovely feeling knowing that ants would probably be crawling all over their boxes of food and water cups. The dishes that we did attempt to use were dirty. Both bathrooms were so outdated and dinghy looking. I went to get in the shower and there was hair on the floor and wall. Gross! After our dinner, we came back to find bugs all over the main living area. My husband started taking pictures of the various bugs from flying ones to roach looking ones. These were different bugs than the ants that were all over the kitchen. To end the lovely day, I went to get in bed upstairs (in the sweltering heat - no aC and the fans totally did not cool things down) and the sheet was stained and there was hair in several places on the sheets. Disgusting! I do not recommend staying here at all unless if you like living in bug infested unsanitary conditions. We moved to the Kaanapali Shores and got a beautiful new looking condo for the rest of the week that was impeccably clean and the same price.
Tammy, you obviously did not enjoy yourself. Iâm glad that you at least liked the view. I honestly had a hard time determining who you were, since you decided to write a review 9 months after your visit. I apologize if the cleaners did a less than thorough job, and I regret that you did not phone one of the numbers provided to you during your visit if you were less than satisfied. It must have been difficult holding in your frustration all of this time. This is an older condo, and it does show some wear & tear, but improvements are being made constantly and Iâm happy that subsequent guests have had a much better experience than you did.
Chuck, manager condo 403
Jan from Bellevue, WA on 07/11/2011 said:
We would rate the condo a 5-star for location, view, privacy and ambience. The main living area was comfortable and clean with updated furniture and a large lanai. The gift basket was a thoughtful gesture including coffee and cookies. We were all a bit surprised, though, at the run-down condition of the upstairs and, particularly, the 3rd bedroom. No closet, peeling wallpaper and mold. The bathrooms were clean enough but all doors need replacing. We also had an ant infestation in the kitchen area. There wasn't anyone available to talk to on the property about this and we never met Bill, the property manager,even after inquiring at the rental office. Finally, we had to purchase our own papergoods because there was only one extra roll of T.P. and P.T. which wasn't enough for 6 adults for a week. All in all, we enjoyed the experience, with reservations.This could be an exceptional rental with some much needed upgrades.
Amazing View, Wonderful Place to Stay
Carly from Seattle, WA on 05/25/2011 said:
We had a wonderful time staying in #403, it had an amazing view and was well kept. Also, it was great to have two floors as we stayed with another couple and still felt it was very private. The kitchen had everything you needed and we cooked a lot to keep the cost down. The beach was incredible, we swam and snorkeled and saw huge sea turtles. The only drawbacks were that there was no air conditioning and it was pretty hot expecially on the second floor. The fans helped but was not enough to keep it cool. Also, I think there are some mice in the unit as we had our bread and crossants on top of the frige and we took them down one morning to eat and there were little holes and bites out of them so we had to throw them away. We didn't see any droppings or the mice themselves but did see the evidence of them eating our food on top of the frige. Overall our stay was lovely and we could see staying there again.
Great vacation at #403
Jacky from Minneapolis, MInnesota on 04/06/2011 said:
We had a wonderful time staying in Nohonani #403. It s great to find an affordable place that could handle 7 people, with comfortable sleeping arrangement and ease of movement throughout the place. It was great to have the ability to cook meals and save a few dollars, rather than eating out at everyone meal. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The view of the ocean is awesome...and right from our lanai, we could watch the sea turtles, whales and a monk seal!! And the sunsets were amazing...every night we stepped out onto the lanai to watch the sun set and listen to the conk shell "ceremonies". The "Welcome" basket was such a nice touch, after traveling so many hours to get there...we were exhausted and it was such a treat to see that waiting for us!!! We will be back!!!
Marcia from Portland, OR on 04/02/2011 said:
condo was very comfortable, had a nice lanai with table and chair that looked right down on the water. The most exciting aspect was that you looked directly down from the lanai to see over 30 sea turtles feeding on the coral reef not 20 feet offshore.
Wigley from Stockton Calif. on 03/04/2011 said:
Our stay at Nohonani #403 was wonderful!! We found the unit to be beautifully appointed, and clean. It was in the perfect location! I have stayed at other condos in the area, and Nohonani #403 was far and away the very best! I can't wait to go back!
Great location! Fantastic view!
amf_10 from Edmonton, AB, Canada on 02/06/2011 said:
The condo's location is right on the beach. The sound of waves fills the condo at night, creating a very relaxing and soothing atmosphere. Every morning right from the bedroom windows you can see turtles feeding just off shore. During the days great restaurants and markets are just a short walk down the street. The area is not over populated, unlike other areas of Maui. The beach on the property is small but absolutely great for snorkeling. You don't have to go more than 5 feet out to see a variety of fish. We enjoyed that the beach was a bit more private than others on the island. Seeing whales each night and hearing the conches blow at sun down was amazing. We stayed here for 5 days with a group of 6. We had an awesome time and would recommend it to others who are not looking for a party location, but rather to relax and enjoy the environment around them. Aloha and mahalo!
A Wonderful Christmas in Maui
Akon from Indianapolis, IN on 01/01/2011 said:
The Nohonani Condo 403 was an awesome place for our large family to celebrate Christmas! The 3 private rooms gave each couple a place to retreat to and the main living area was large enough to accomodate Christmas morning with many people and presents. The views from the condo are gorgeous, we even saw sea turtles, a whale, and a rainbow from the lanai. The condo is close to shopping, restaurants, and it is a quick trip to Lahaina by rental car. The pool and private beach are awesome. Make sure you bring water shoes as there are sharp rocks in the ocean. We'd book this condo again in a heartbeat!
This is an amazing value for the prime location.

Our family of 5 plus my daughter's boyfriend spent 5 days here (we ended our vacation on Oahu and we were all wishing we'd stayed longer in Nohonani #403!). We saw (and swam with) sea turtles every day and even saw a couple of whales from a distance. The location is perfect, away from the crowds in Lahaina but close enough to visit daily if desired. We were very comfortable here and loved the sound of the surf. It is well furnished. A few cons: the smoke alarm goes off very easily (even making toast). Ceilings are low - must be careful not to stretch standing below the ceiling fans. A few lamps had burned out bulbs. The beautiful master bedroom would benefit by adding a mirror, which would free up the demand on the upstairs bathroom. The bathtubs are a little worn but that didn't bother us. We would definitely return.
Absolute Island Paradise

Nohonani #403 was absolutely perfect for our family. Plenty of space to spread out on 2 levels with a beautiful lanai. The idea location, right on the beach provided excellent snorkeling and sunning. The pool is wonderful entertainment for kids. We will stay at this unit again, time after time.

Everything was nice. I am not use to staying in a place as large, i.e. double floor, but nonetheless, it was very nice.
Excellent Oceanfront Maui Condo
Laurie from Kihei, Maui, HI on 09/02/2010 said:
We surprised my Mom with a weekend on the West Side of Maui for her 75th birthday. This condo was amazing! It's right on the ocean with a great swimming beach which is a rare find in this area. We saw the turtles swimming right in front of our condo. It's well appionted with every kitchen item you could need. The beds are so comfortable and are on the ocean side of the unit so you have a nice breeze all night. We've already booked this for a long weekend in November and plan many more stays at this condo. It's laid out perfect for our family with two bedrooms and a full bathroom upstairs and another master suite downstairs for Grandma.

We had a very nice time in the condo, especially we loved to wtch the sunrise over the ocean from the bedrom and the sound of the shorebreak. Everything was was perfect and maybe we come again one day when we have saved enough money for the long flight from Germany. Mahalo!
MB Ashbee from Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 06/07/2010 said:
We've just returned from 10 enchanting days in paradise and a dream vacation at Nohonandi Condo #403. The condo was stellar and fully equipped. There was binoculars, books, CDS (even a CD guide for The Road To Hana), boogie boards, a cooler & anything & everything one could need-(the only thing missing was a pair of scissors-big deal). The website pics are 100% accurate and there is nothing misleading. Loved the 2 stories, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and the washer/dryer. The view from the lanai and the sunsets were spectacular. There was a group at the next condo that would gather at sunset to all blow their conches-to say goodbye to sunset-that was really eerie but cool. Looking for turtles was fun. Watching Molokai at sunrise was breathtaking. Hearing the waves lapping 24/7 was soothing. No aC is not an issue-the tropical breezes and fans were better than aC. There's even a plumeria tree on the premises! I was so sad to leave and can't wait to return. Maui no ka oi and Nohonani 403 no ka oi...Mahalo nui loa to all concerned. Mark Twain got it right: "No alien land in all the world has any deep strong charm for me but that one, no other land could so longingly and so beseechingly haunt me, sleeping and waking, through half a lifetime, as that one has done Other things leave me, but it abides..."
Our favorite beach area on the island.
Eileen from Lakeport, California on 05/10/2010 said:
We have stayed at the Nohonani complex 3 times now and absolutley love this area. The complex is quiet and the small beach is great. I rated it with the 4 stars for the old Hawaiian feel. It's not the most up-to-date place you could choose, but it has all of the amenities you need. Unit 403 was larger than the ones we usually rent. It had 3 bedrooms. The views are magnificent from all bedrooms. The unit has had some upgrading and needs some more, but we will stay here again. The bathrooms and kitchen need to be updated, but they work just fine. The owners provide beach towels, boogie boards, coolers and a lovely welcome basket on arrival. Nice touch. There is always plenty of parking. We had 2 cars and had no problem. There is an ABC store with gas and a farmer's market within walking distance. There are also grocery stores and restaurants a few blocks away if you didn't want to drive to Lahaina(6 miles away) for supplies. Groceries are expensive in west Maui and we found the Times market down the street was pretty competetive with Safeway in Lahaina. We love the whale watching, dolphins, turtles and snorkeling right from our condo. You can also walk down the beach quite a ways during low tide. Very nice walk. All in all...a great place to stay.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed our home in Maui. We recently purchased it (last June) and have been making improvements to it ever since. We are very excited to start renovating the kitchen and baths. We bought the property for the spectacular views and it's large size. Thank you for your review and we hope you will visit Maui again soon!

very pleasent, we enjoyed the condo
Gail from Bellevue, Wash. on 04/29/2010 said:
We liked the condo very much. We were right on top of the beach snd loved seeing the turtles eating at night and the many whales out in the water while sitting on our balacony. The only thing we would change is having a few more pot and pans in the kitchen. There was only a large frying pan and no sauce pans. If you love hearing the surf and enjoy sitting on a balconcy viewing the ocean, this is a great place to be, we would certainly come back again and stay at condo 403.
A great place to stay and relax!
EJS from Calgary, Alberta Canada on 04/29/2010 said:
Our family stayed at Unit #403, for 11 days in April. We really enjoyed the condo, very comfortable, the breeze of the ocean was refreshing and cool during the hot periods of the day. A beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony on which we could see the whales and turtles. The pool was a lot of fun for the kids, as was the ocean. It is one of the few condo complexes in the area that has it's own beach- which is a great! Overall a very relaxing and enjoyable visit for our entire family, and we would most definitely return to the condo, and recommend it to those who view these reviews. I know that some reviews commented on the need to upgrade the condo, or move the smoke alarm out of the kitchen, so it doesn't go off each time you make toast or cook, but hey- your in beautful Maui, in a comfortable condo, with great ocean views, warm water, a pool , private beach, ect, ect. You can't get much better!
beautiful ocean view
The Nurses from Wash st. on 02/10/2010 said:
The view was unbeatable. So close to the water, and the flood light off the roof made even the night view fantastic. The living room has been updated furniture and floors, beautiful. The bathrooms need new grout, sinks and tubs. The lack of AC was an issue when its was really humid. Overall we had a great time in 403b! The Nurses
Unit 403 Nohonani
The family from Oregon from Oregon on 01/25/2010 said:
We visited with elderly Mom and two toddlers (yep, we're nuts!). Perfect setting for all. The on call support person was very responsive to our one need. The owner had alreay made funishings upgrades that were very nice, beds were comfortable etc. The carpet guys were arriving as we left so you will enjoy new flooring in 2010! I'll add this comment for those who will find it an issue: 1) the loft bedrooms are not private, they adjoin via an open vaulted ceiling. So, if you are renting this unit with other couples or want privacy for a romp, forget it. However, if you need to listen for the little ones, or otherwise don't care, this is perfect! Mom stayed down stairs and that area is really like a separate suite. The shoji screens close but I don't think they're sound barriers. Again, the rompers may want other accomdations. 2) My elderly mother can't get in and out of a tub bath/shower combo and that's what you've got here. So, consider this not ADA functional. All that aside, this is one of the best units I've ever stayed in, anywhere, and we travel a lot! Have stayed in timeshares, luxury hotels and private condo's like this. Unless you require the Westin or the like, you'll be pleased with this sweet unit in a perfect location.
Wonderful stay at Nohonani 403!
The Jonsson Family from Sweden on 01/06/2010 said:
We spent our vacation on Maui at the Nohonani, unit #403, from December 15-31 2009. There were 6 of us; my husband and I, and our 4 children, ages 20, 13, 10 and 9 years old. We were hoping for a good sized condo so that we would have some elbow room, and we were not disappointed! We also wanted a decent kitchen, a washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms, (20, 13 and 10 year olds are girls!) and an ocean view. Unit 403 was made for us! Perfect in every way possible! A day after we arrived, while watching sea turtles swimming and whales breaching in the ocean right outside our window, we were scheming up ways to come back again...SOON! (Oh, and if the owners are reading this...CONTACT US IF YOU EVER DECIDE TO SELL!!! We'd buy the condo in a split second!) The condo was spacious, and while it wasn't as clean as a high priced hotel with daily maid service might be, it was clean enough. It felt like home, very cozy and practical! The only negative thing we can think of, and it isn't very negative at all, was the lack of knives! The only regrets we have are not being able to stay FOREVER, and also that we didn't have time to write in the guestbook about what a wonderful stay we had. I highly recommend 403!
BMagee from Portland, Oregon on 11/24/2009 said:
Nice Condo with new furniture. Carpet was a little dirty and the kitchen small, but the view and seeing all the Turtles from the balcony was just great. We were expecting to have a double bed instead of the twin beds in the third bedroom, but it still worked out.
Friends From Oregon from Newberg Oregon on 11/05/2009 said:
We had a great time in Hawaii. The weather was great. The turtles were out and playing down below the unit. Location is great and the visiting owners of the other units were friendly. We will definitely consider staying again on our next visit to Maui!
Beautiful Condo, Beautiful place
HANEBERGS from BORING, OR on 10/02/2009 said:
Our family was fortunate enough to book 8 nights at Nahonani Condos and Resort Condo 403. It was a beautiful 3 bedroom condo on the fourth and fifth floor, overlooking a gorgeous beach. The bedrooms were large and confortable, the facility was clean and well equipped, and the beach was fabulous. We sat on the patio and watched sea turtles and rays feeding on the reef. We snorkeled right off the condo beach and saw beautiful fish and coral. The kids had a wonderful time swimming in the pool. It was a great week on Maui!

3 Generation Vacation fit just great into our Nohonani Condo # 4
Rob-Doc from Vista, California on 08/30/2009 said:
This was our first visit to the condos at Nohonani and we had 7 people total covering 3 generations of my family. So to say the least, I was concerned how the condo would work with all of us. But it was clean and ready to go when we arrived. There was a very nice wrapped gift basket on the table and instructions for everything. We had 3 bedrooms, two full baths and even washer/dryer setup. All worked great. We really enjoyed the view out over the beach and the reefs. We enjoyed watching the turtles swimming around the bedach and reefs at night from our lanai. We could just go down 4 floors to the ground level and boom, on the beach and swimming with the fishes. :) It was in a good location that was close to shopping plus wonderful other beaches and parks. We really had a great time and highly recommend it to other families that want to be close to everything. (One great feature was that the condo was two stories inside the main door. Inside stairs to the main bedroom, 2nd bedroom and w/d. It kept the teenage girls noise downstairs at night. Peaceful and everyone happy).
Great Location but needs a little updating
GG from Seattle on 08/12/2009 said:
With just a little bit of TLC, this place could be awesome! It was roomy enough for all 6 of us and had a great view off the lanai of the ocean. The pool was a good size and was kept clean. Sea Turtles were just 10' off the shore every afternoon. Really cool! The place itself could use some new carpet and a bit of updating but the cupboards were stocked with dishes, nice fluffy towels were rolled up on the beds waiting for us along with a very nice gift basket upon our arrival. I may go back again but I may look for another more updated condo for my next visit.
The view was fantastic !!!
Telling you like it is..... from Oceanside California on 08/06/2009 said:
Our experience with Chuck at Aloha Condo's was excellent. He answered all our questions promptly. The condo was nice, open and airy. There was a fantastic breeze blowing through most all day. The location was great, just a short drive to most stores, restaurants and walking distance to the farmers market. The condo was older and we were made aware of that fact, however it required some basic upgrades. WARNING !!! The carpet needs to be replaced desperately !!! Professional cleaning won't even save it. I felt uncomfortable walking around in bare feet. The kitchen smoke alarm went off every time I cooked anything including toast in the toaster. That was loud and annoying. The bathroom fan was very very dirty. The ceiling fan blades were filthy. Positives -- The view, and the sound of the waves crashing at night was extremely relaxing. Watching the sea turtles in front of the condo was awesome. Bottom line, if you can live with some dirt, dust and the thought of god knows what living in the carpet, ...then go for it, but I warn you .. don't spend your $$ until this 20 year old carpet is replaced!! I hope the owner will consider making that improvement at least. If not, then I have to be honest, I would recommend this home solely for the view and beachfront location, This place isn't for someone who is expecting luxury accommodations.
Marvelous Stay at Nohonani Condos near Kaanapali, Maui
USC_Trojan_Fan from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA on 08/05/2009 said:
We had the best possible week in our Nohonani condo in Maui. Our unit (#403) was on the top floor and was a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2-story condo. As soon as we walked in, we knew this would be a special week for us. Our lanai overlooked the small beach, and we were greeted with a wonderful and thoughtful gift basket containing a tote bag, chocolates, cookies, and assorted snacks. My wife was quite impressed by the near new, high quality towels. I think the most impressive parts of this place was the awesome view of Molokai and Lanai while relaxing with a book and some fresh fruit at our table on the lanai; and the chance to watch huge sea turtles most evenings from our lanai, as they would come within 10 feet of the sand. This time my wife and I came with our 21 & 18 year old daughters, but on our next visit to Maui and the Nohonani #403, we will come alone. Even though we won't need the other 2 bedrooms, it will be well worth it to us to stay at this truly memorable location. My wife and I are ready to go back there tomorrow (if only we could). My deepest thanks go out to everyone at Aloha Condos for making our week in Maui such a wonderful experience.

We absolutley LOVED your condo! We spent most of our days right there on the beach or in the pool. It was like being at home. We went to the grocery store and cooked most of our meals right there in our own kitchen or we barbequed by the pool. We definitly would love to come back and stay in your condo.

Comfortable condo with great view
Stanley family from Hot Springs, Arkansas on 06/06/2009 said:
The condo was very comfortable for the 6 adults in our group. It is roomy and the beds were comfortable. The view is spectacular. The rental process was smooth and easy. This is an older complex and while the unit was comfortable and had everything we needed it could use a little updating (i.e. shower heads and maybe the carpet replaced with tile). But would not hesitate to rent this property again. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We had an amazing holiday in the Nohonani Condos . The condo was beautiful & the view from our balcony was spectacular . It was big enough for 8, very clean and very well equiped . It was an unforgetable experience for all of us . Would love to return some day . The sofa bed was a bit uncomfortable & should perhaps be replaced .
Graham Hardaker from Central Coast, NSW, Australia on 04/23/2009 said:
We stayed at Nohonani 403 for ten days during August 2008 and found out pretty quickly that we had found a fantastic Hawaiian hideaway. We were four adult friends traveling together and found the layout just perfect, especially the two bathrooms. The condo is so centrally located that it was just a short walk to several strip shopping centres where everything you needed was available. Even an ABC shop!!The condo had everything provide to enhance your stay, down to snorkle gear, binoculars to watch the turtles and music CDs to complete the mood. Most importantly, you were right on the beach with uninterrupted views from the balcony and bedrooms. We hardly used the dining room, instead opting for the balcony to take our meals and watch the turtles and sunsets. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. The owners are just great. Friendly and caring, attending to a few small problems we had quickly and professionally. So at no time were we inconvenienced. Even able to recommend to us the best places to visit, when we weren't on the beach or shopping that is. Local knowledge is the best recommendation. We are planning our next trip to Hawaii in 2010 and will definitely be returning to Nohonani 403. Thanks for a terrific and memorable holiday. A little piece of Hawaiian Heaven.
Paradise Dream come to life
AlaskaSkamper from Palmer, Alaska on 04/23/2009 said:
I had my 2nd stay in this unit in 10/08. I LOVE IT! The setting couldnt be better as the unit sits beach side. I fell asleep every night listening to the waves. The outside ammenities are wonderful with beach side pool, plenty of lounge chairs, flowering grounds. Nice BBQ area also, but we did have some small, many legged "visitors" during our evening BBQ that we didnt expect! Be careful using this area at night. Interior is clean and has a ton of room, is well appointed with tables, couch, TV, CD player, DVD, etc. All bedrooms are on the ocean side of the unit. This is an end unit so there is a wonderful breaze on the lanai. View of neighboring islands is fantastic. Unit is dated, however, and needs some serious updating in the bathrooms, flooring, etc. Unit supplied plenty of towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler. I would highly recommend this unit!
Great Condo, Perfect Location & Cool Breezes
CoolAidsMommy from California on 04/23/2009 said:
We spent an amazing week at the Nohonani Condos and Resort Condo 403. This is the first time that we stayed at this property -- and it was perfect. The beach was amazing and the location was great. Condo was in order when we arrived, it's large size afforded all of our family to stay and the cost per night was affordable. Having a kitchen allowed us to enjoy more family time and less restaurant wait time. Complex had BBQ's on-site so that provided alternatives to being cooped up inside. Also the location of Unit 403 in the complex provided cooling cross breezes throughout the day. We'd definitely recommend this condo! Enjoy.

We spent 7 wonderful days at this condo and loved every minute of it. The modest balcony was perfect for our families to watch the whales and the turtles. We loved having the option of swimming in the pool or just jumping in the ocean. There's a great Farmer's Market just down the street too! We would definitely rent this condo again.

We stayed in Room 403 with our two children age 6 and 9, and my in-laws. There was plenty of space for 6 people, the lanai was perfect especially at sunset, you can also see the turtles feed about 50 yards away. The bbg pit was a great addition, it's very practical. The condo is walking distance to the local market, great people and ice cream, not to mention the farmers mkt
Wayne and Sandy D. from Granite Bay, CA on 04/12/2009 said:
We enjoyed our stay. The condo was kid friendly and not too fancy so we could relax and not worry about breaking anything. We had four teens and they are still talking about wanting to return. We could walk down to the beach and swim with the huge turtles as well as snorkle or just lay in the sun. We all hope to return someday. Wayne and Sandy D.
Dave Anderson from Milwaukee, WI on 04/09/2009 said:
The location was perfect for us. Great views from the balcony; nice, quiet neighborhood. Some good local shopping: farmers market, grocery, fish store. Easy access. The only down side is that the unit was beginning to show it's age. It was looking a little shabby and due for a make over.
Nohonani Condos 403
Jan & Tim from Seabeck, WA on 04/03/2009 said:
My husband and I stayed here with his parents for an extended week in October 2008. The condo was spacious, clean, and in good condition. The beds were comfortable; towels and linens plentiful. The kitchen is on the small side, but, when you are on vacation, who is going to spend time in there anyway? The elevator was a bit slow, but it worked, thank goodness. The view from the lanai was beautiful. It was fun to sit there in the early evening and watch the turtles as they came close to shore. The beach in front of the condo is a bit short for strolling, but, there are plenty of beaches near by. We plan to stay here our next trip to Maui, which is soon, I hope!
On the Whale Trail
phaselt from San Francisco Bay Area on 04/03/2009 said:
This is the second time that we have stayed in this unit and the third time at Nohonani. The location is perfect for whale watching and we had an added treat on this trip of a close encounter with turtles on the rocks just off the beach. The unit is large and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. It's top floor corner location offers a great view of the whales as well as up and down the coast. We will be back. Thanks.
Best value for your money!!

We were married in Maui in 1988. We make it a plan to go back every 5 years and last year was special it was our 20th wedding anniversary. We found Aloha Condo?s on line after doing a lot of research and we were not disappointed at all!! The view from the lanai was great we enjoyed watching the turtles play in the waves and the whales swim by and those Maui sunsets can take your breath away! The location was ideal close to everything we needed. We met friends from Florida, and Chicago and shared the condo for a week, everyone had their own space the condo was perfect. I would HIGHLY recommend this condo. The condo was very clean everything in working order ? the owner was great to work with. For our next stay we will definitely be booking at Aloha Condo?s again ? it?s the best value for your money!!
