I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone I know. The location is so perfect! You are right on the water, can go to sleep listening to the waves breaking and wake-up and go snorkeling or shell-hunting in the morning. The sea turtles that frequent this stretch of shore are also an added bonus. There were so many in the water when we stayed in early May.
The condo itself is nice and spacious. Comfy bed with nice, soft sheets, roomy shower, and up-to-date kitchen. You can eat your meals inside at the dining table if it's raining, or enjoy the weather outside on the front patio overlooking the ocean.
Also, when you get in, there's an amazing welcome basket of Hawaiian goodies! It was so nice and we indulged in everything! Macadamia chocolates, Hawaiian-style potato chips, amazing local coffee, great quality canvas totes perfect for heading out to the beach, and various flavors of roasted macadamia nuts. Yum!
A few minor/easy requests I would ask of the owners to make things a bit more hospitable the next time around: • Please supply new, sharp knifes! So hard to cut a pineapple with dull ones.• Please provide new pots - I believe that anytime the non-stick surface of a pan is scratched off, it should go in the trash• Add more pillows to the bed - one pillow per person just doesn't cut it when you're trying to relax and read the paper in the morning• New scrub brush - the one we were supplied with had definitely done its time
Thanks so much for letting us stay at this amazing place!
Great place to stay

We were very pleased with our condo rental, very clean. I liked that the washer and dryer were right across from our unit. Very convenient, yet we did not have to hear it or have it take up space in the condo. The grounds were lovely. Very close to the water. The goodies were an unexpected surprise! We enjoyed checking each day to see how many turtles were visiting. It was a new experience to read in a lounge chair on the beach and have a turtle keep me company(though we did not get too close). It was within walking distance of several good places to eat as well as the farmer's market.
Nice beach front unit
Reviewed by Jay
We stayed here for about a week in mid September. The unit was nicely furnished, and a wonderful gift basket surprised us, great touch by the owner! We enjoyed staying here since it was right in front of the pool area and had great access to the beach. The communal shower was in front of the unit but it was not a negative at all, everyone was cordial and polite and there was not a lot of foot traffic like some of the others have complained about. The bed was also very comfy and falling asleep to the waves were amazing. However, it could be a little loud for some people. My only complaint was the lack of AC as it was in the 90's and very humid when we stayed. I actually had trouble staying cool as the fans in the unit were just not cool enough for the extreme weather. It was out of the ordinary, but keep that in mind if you book this unit.
Truly oceanfront with resident turtles
Reviewed by Shirley_Lincicum
We enjoyed a lovely week at Nohonani #103. Wonderful ocean & beach front location - it was literally steps to a sandy beach where we could swim with the turtles. Love the layout of this 1-bedroom unit, with the bedroom on the beach side. Kitchen was small, but serviceable. Tile flooring throughout unit was also wonderful. TV sets in living room and bedroom had been upgraded over those in the online photos - a nice surprise. My only complaint is that the fact that a failing sea wall had caused some sink holes on the property and this was not disclosed to us until after our final payment went through - even though the owner was well aware of the situation at the time that we booked. An Aloha Condos online booking site representative sent a photo of the sink hole promptly in response to our request, and the owner cut $20 per night off the originally booked rate without asking due to the inconvenience caused by the sink hole - there was temporary fencing around the lanai that obstructed our view somewhat when seated and prevented us from using a lawn area. The owner also offered to refund our money entirely, which we considered, but we were unable to find comparable accommodations with less than 30 days notice. When we first found out about the sink hole, we were concerned that the structural integrity of the building might be compromised before we arrived, leaving us with nowhere to stay. As it turned out, the failing sea wall was not a significant problem. It may even have been an advantage in the case of #103 because a sink hole had taken out a walking path right outside the bedroom window, so we got more privacy than we would have otherwise. Last we heard, work to repair the failing sea wall is scheduled to begin on 3/23/2015. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Nohonani #103 very much - clean, comfortable, well-appointed, great location, watched giant sea turtles swimming and sunning themselves on the beach nearly every day. Also a great view for whale watching in season. Only suggestions for improvement I have would be to provide an in-room safe for visitors and a small drying rack or some hooks on the lanai for swimsuits and towels.

This was a great option to make our stay in Maui more affordable. For five days, we had a beautiful personal space where we could stretch out, and cook our own meals. This cute little condo is located right on a private beach area where a friendly green sea turtle beached every day to visit us.

Just a lovely little condo that sits right next to the ocean! Very comfortable, clean, well stocked and even has sand chairs and a small cooler to use! The kitchen and bathroom are small but it's all I needed. The views are amazing and the small beach out front is a real plus!! I won't stay anywhere else! :-)
Fabulous beachfront location
Reviewed by Dianne F
Both the owner and the local island person were very quick on the response time. Everything was easy--booking, check-in & out, cleaning service.
The location was even better than described. I've never been in a place closer to the ocean--any closer, and we'd have been swimming at high tide! Turtles lived right off shore and sometimes crawled up on the beach to sleep. Snorkeling was good right there if the tide wasn't too low, then you could just swim out a bit further.
The condo was quite small, but a perfect layout. The ocean was in every room. Sliding doors from the great room and master opened to the patio. The back wall in the great room was mirror. Best suited for 2 people.
The kitchen is tiny, so not recommended if you like to cook. We usually go out every other night and pick up ready-made the others, so it was fine for us.
The place was well-equipped with towels, utensils, and the mattress was really terrific. Must have been quite new...so comfy, with the added benefit of ocean lulling us to sleep.
Overall, after 25 years of coming to Hawaii, this was our favorite place.
love the condo, hate paying 2 cleaning fees
Reviewed by Dan E
This was our 5th time to stay in unit 103, this visit required 2 cleaning fees, additional one our first week, we have never paid that before nor have I even heard of such a thing. I could see offering this as a option to someone who didn't want to clean or change linens, however staying in a condo you expect to do this things. The unit itself is a great location, however the sheets did not fit the bed, no placemats or coasters (help to keep the glass tops clean) I also rented 2 additional units for our kids and grandkids stay along with ours. When we come back will ck again to see if the cleaning is still a 2 time fee, if so will look elsewhere. shower doors very spotty, lime away would clean them up nicely. Screen doors did not lock, but then they never have in 5 stays.

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!

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!

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
Reviewed by A FlipKey verified reviewer
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.

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!
Reviewed by Suzie
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
Reviewed by mms
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...
