Elizabeth H. from Holly, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 With an ocean view and beach just steps away, it's hard to find any complaints. The condo is located near local eateries, including the Fish Market, where we feasted on fresh catch almost every day. Waking up and going to sleep every night to the sound of waves crashing to shore, sunrises and sunsets from out lanai, and a pool with ocean views ? This was beyond our expectation and doubt you can find a better value. The unit could use some updates, but it was clean and stocked with all we needed. Thank you ! We will definitely return.
Geoffrey C. from Edmonton, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 The property is conveniently located. Check in was easy. The unit itself was fine. It is somewhat dated, and the bed was very uncomfortable. Time for a new mattress. The unit was not very clean. There were crumbs on top of the fridge, red wince down the side of the dishwasher, and a number of dirty dishes put away. The staff were great about this and offered another free cleaning. The exact same items were not cleaned again! Cleaning staff needs a kick in the butt! Otherwise complex was great!
james d. from redding, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2016 We loved sitting out on the lanai and watching the turtles, whales and the beautiful ocean. You won't get any closer to the water than the Hale Kai. We highly recommend the Hale Kai and really appreciated the staff, very welcoming and helpful. We will come again!!!
Isidora P. from Toronto, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 This is just an amazing condo right on a beautiful beach and beach park. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Hale Kai as the condo was really well organized, clean, with all the amenities and supplies (e.g. kitchen) that you can possibly need during a vacation. The area is lively during the day and quiet at night, and everyone we met was very nice. The management is really friendly and helpful, and we thank you for everything! We even got a gift from secret Santa (thank you Santa)! The location is perfect, on the beach, yet conveniently located just across from the farmer's market, store with organic produce, coffee shop, snorkelling rental (and tours), and a short walk to a good supermarket and a great fish market (delicious poke!). This is definitely one of our best, if not the best, vacation ever! We would love to come back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in paradise. Mahalo
Skipper H. from Laurel, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2015 I lucked into finding the condo while spending days looking for a place to stay for our anniversary. The location can not be beat! You are on top of the beach and ocean, plus you can walk to shops and little carry out restaurants from the condo. It is very laid back and you do not feel like you have to get dressed up to go outside or anywhere else. The snorkeling from our little beach was great and it seems to be a hang out for at least three (3) sea turtles each afternoon, which you can watch swimming around from the beach. For myself and my wife this was the perfect place for us. The condo had everything that you might need to include some snorkeling gear (some left by us) that you would need. I would recommend this condo to my family as well as my friends. The staff and property was also in my opinion great. Great Anniversary, Mahalo! Skip H.
A guest from San Luis Obispo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in August, 2015 I have to 'fess up, I don't want to admit how much we liked it here because I don't want the rates to go up and/or availability to go down. But 202 deserves a good review. We spent 2 weeks here, would definitely do it again. Place was perfect for us, people were all very nice, and it was a smooth well-organized transaction with good communication, too.
A guest from Lahaina, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2015 We have been coming here for years! Love the Hale Kai ...it is such a great place to stay. Very peaceful and nice. I do need to say that termites are an issue! They were an issue last year and same this year. Arrived with a bunch of termites flying all over the kitchen. Last year there were termites all over the couch.....please address this! Also, perhaps the railing could be cleaned of bird droppings. I do love that this unit upgraded the bathroom. Much needed and it was very nice! And dishwasher didn't work. Just need to keep track of maintenance but this would not prevent me from staying again.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha and many thanks for retuning to #202. This year termites have been busy on the islands due to prevailing winds and are spot treated. With our beautiful tropical setting, occasionally birds rest on the railings and enjoy ocean views. We encourage all guests to notify the office if anything needs attention and a remedy or update should be provided. Our recent bathroom upgrade adds the final touch of ambience to our oceanfront location. Mahalo, Jack Dodson #202
Shannon S. from Pocatello, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2015 Beautiful view! Loved the location, and the condo was great. Beach stuff was an extra bonus. The staff were all friendly and helpful and it was nice to be able to use the outdoor grill, and my son loved the pool. Missing having coffee and fresh tropic fruit on the lanai already! I was worried about no AC, but we stayed pretty cool with the breeze and the fans.
Glenn B. from Newark, DE recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 Relaxing, with great views. Waves rolled right up to your lanai and lulled you to sleep. For soft mattress lovers, the best. Very clean fully equipped for indoor and outdoor activities.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, Thanks for a great review on #202. Mahalo
LeAnne D. from Bonner Springs, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in April, 2015 We stayed in unit 202 and it had everything we wanted. It has an updated decor, well-equipped kitchen and many extras that made it feel like home. We had a beautiful view, a quiet unit, and a helpful, friendly managerial staff. We plan to come back as often as we can.
Lynette D. from Olympia, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2015 Stay: April 5-14. Arrived late & were dismayed to find there wasn't adequate bedding for our girls' convertible beds (sofas w/ back cushions removed). Made do & staff provided more towels, sheets & blankets next day. Unit was stone's toss from the ocean & bordered a community beach park. From lanai we watched humpbacks breaching & sea turtles below. Saw gorgeous sunsets here daily. On other side of pool there's a small beach where we watched a resting sea turtle! Loft was underused by us, but we found straw mats & a cooler for beach use. Bathroom was updated & clean.Bed was saggy in the middle but fine. Kitchen had necessities but could have used more tumblers,mugs. Kitchen lights often went out & would later come back on, minor inconvenience. Sound of surf was soothing but woke us with its intensity each night. Condo was quiet. Grounds were gorgeous, lush, well kept. Manager was friendly & provided more beach towels when asked. Parking was tight. Conveniently located. Small farmer's market across the street (M-W-F). Would definitely stay again!

Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, Great review and we are pleased your enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next vacation at Hale Kai. Mahalo
Bill & Joan H. from Creve Coeur, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 56 days in January, 2015 This was our 37th year at the Hale Kai. We totally enjoy the manager, Valerie Kane, as she is helpful in every way. Gabby, the cleaning lady is nice, and tries to keep things clean, and my wife assists by cleaning and sweeping every other day. No complaint, just that cleaning is infrequent.The Hale Kai needs a grounds manager. The deck is sand covered most days, the umbrellas, new, need to be more strongly secured, and the grills, new, need help. I feel for management as the grounds person is at best, barely adequate.We love the Hale Kai, but since booking on line has taken over, you have lost many long term vacationers. Too bad!Thanks for asking.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, Thanks for staying a record 37 years and we look forward to hosting you again next year. Mahalo
Jon N. from Fullerton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 We had a great stay at Hale Kai. Every morning and actually any downtime we had was spent on the porch overlooking the beach and park next door.istening to the sound of the waves as we fell asleep and again as we woke up was awesome. The Hale Kai is ideally located, away from the business of Lahaina and Kaanapali but close enough to enjoy their amenities. Favorite beaches were Slaughterhouse and Fleming, best swimming at a city park just south of the Hyatt by the Canoe Club, best walk was from just north of Lahaina along the water to Black Rock by the Sheraton in Kaanapali. Stayed local the whole time. No ride to Hana this time but a must if you've never done it - it's an entire day excursion. Avoid the Kaanapali beachside restaurants, pack lots of picnics for the beach, Teddy's Burgers and Lahaina Pizza highly recommended. We would stay at Hale Kai again, particularly our unit 202. Great breeze through the unit keeps things nice and cool and fresh.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to mention all the things guests will enjoy around Hale Kai and the great ocean views from #202. Mahalo
A guest from Lafayette, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We stayed in unit 202 for 7 days just through the recent July 4th Holiday. Hale Kai is very conveniently located to Northwest Maui sights and services and the small size complex fit what we were looking for well. Well maintained grounds, proxmity to good snorkeling and beaches, sea turtle viewing, proximity to reasonable eating options and supermarket are all pluses. Unit does deliver the great views of the ocean from the balcony - the pictures do not lie. Public beach park next door never very crowded even during holiday week and not noisy. The unit itself has had some upgrades but could still use a few others to make it perfect. All in all a great stay at Hale Kai.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, Thanks for your positive feedback of unit #202, Hale Kai and our great location. Mahalo
Tim J. from Thunder Bay, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in April, 2014 It was such a great first experience in Maui that we are already planning our return next year! We feel extremely lucky that we stumbled across Hale Kai while searching for a Condo, we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, We appreciate hearing your first vacation to Maui and Hale Kai was beyond expectations. A great way to leave Hale Kai, while already looking forward to next year. Mahalo

Susan M. from Ashland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2014 We really enjoyed our stay at Hale Kai. Ocean view out our front and back windows! The place is located across the street from a food coop and coffee shop. We walked to the grocery store and various beaches - nice. We will be sure and stay again.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha, Good to hear you enjoyed your vacation at 202 Hale Kai with shops, beaches and amazing ocean views at your doorstep. Mahalo
Bill & Joan H. from Creve Coeur, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 56 days in January, 2014 We have been at the Hale Kai for 36 years, and obviously love it.We have been in 202 for the last several years, and we feel that it is the pick unit at Hale Kai. We have reserved for 2015.The manager(s) Valerie and Liz are wonderful. Valerie is full time, and is the top manager that we have known, and we go all the way back to Ernie and Peg in 1978. All managers have been good, with maybe one exception, and that took care of itself.Our unit (202) is in some transition, as Randy passed on, but his partner spouse Jack is still owning the unit, and we are grateful.Valerie, Liz and Moose are a special and loving team.We have sent many to the Hale Kai.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha Bill & Joan, Thank you for your loyalty and patronage at Hale Kai for 36 years. I am sure you have many wonderful memories of new friends, your vacations and the changes both at Hale Kai and our neighborhood. We owners, office team and our maintenance manager, wish you great vacations ahead! Mahalo
Timothy D. from renton, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 had a great visit. Did not know that they view from our room was of a public park. The park was not heavily used so it was like our own beach. You can also snokel right there, just need to get out a little way. No AC but really did not need it wit te every day breeze
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha - Good to hear you had a wonderful stay in #202, with amazing views across the park, beach and towards the island of Lanai. Amazing sunsets await your return! Mahalo
A guest from Omemee, Ontari recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 The view cannot do this location justice. Just imagine listing to the lapping of the wave as you fall asleep. The unit is very clean, the staff are wonderful, and the permanent residents are very welcoming and friendly. We stayed there 6 days and as soon as you walk in you feel at home. In an area 6 miles from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. Great beach next door. This was our last place to stay during our 3 week vacation, and it was the BEST.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha - Thanks for your review and good to hear we exceeded your previous accommodations for your vacation. It is a gem by the sea and we hope you return soon! Mahalo
Rolane B. from La Mirada, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in July, 2013 We couldn't have been happier with the condo and our time there was wonderful from beginning to end. Our favorite feature was the lanai overlooking the park, beach and ocean - we spent hours enjoying the view! The unit was clean and comfortable, the pool delightful, the reef sea life and turtles were fun to observe, and the people were kind and helpful in every way. If and when we return to Maui we won't hesitate to book #202 again!
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Mahalo - Sometimes that is all one needs to do - relax and enjoy the views! Mahalo - HKR, LLC
brian o. from santa ynez, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2013 The Hale Kai was exactly as advertised, nothing more and nothing less. The pictures and information give you a great idea of what you are getting, we really appreciate that. It is a quiet and friendly, low key place to stay. We really enjoyed the farmers market every other day, excellent people and products, the little store, and Boss Frogs all right across the street. Loved the views and sea turtles everyday. We actually liked snorkeling better up at Honolua Bay or Kanaapali Beach better in case you love snorkeling. Check with Boss Frogs and definitely rent an underwater camera!
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Mahalo - good to hear your expectations on arrival, were as advertised on our web site, by photos and unit description. Yes, so many places to snorkel within our area. Mahalo - HKR, LLC

Andrea K. from Carlsbad, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 We have stayed at Hale Kai 4 times, the last 3 in #202. We love the location of Hale Kai in general, and will continue to stay there even as we expand to need a 2 bed/2 bath unit. Access to a beach/water, park (boys soccer/football), The Market or coffee is steps away. We love #202 for location also - sitting on lanai can view park, beach, ocean & Lanai Island. From master bed can view pool and ocean. The unit is well cared for and always clean.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha AndreaBeing centrally located is a big plus. The park next door gives us a very open feel. We do try hard to keep our condos and property up. So glad you enjoy Hale Kai and keep coming back.Mahalo Valerie
Hall W. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2012 The property was clean and well equipped. Our unti had a wonderful view of the ocean and the park next door. We loved the small pool on site and the occupants were very friendly and welcoming. An older crowd. Beautiful setting had a nice little beach with a reef for snorkeling out front. Saw lots of turtles. Located in a local nieghborhood, not in the highrent resort area. Was extemely comfortable and relaxing.
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha HallWe are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is a very welcoming proeprty. We are small, quiet and quaint with a lot of aloha spirit.Mahalo Valerie
A guest from Oakland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 Aloha! We can't wait to get back to Hale Kai! One word, "Awesome!", describes everything! We already have our next unit picked out and we are looking at dates. The poolside views are amazing! Come for the views, but stay for the "turtle watching" and the sunsets. It's simply magnificent to watch the sunset between Lanai and Molokai. You might as well just bbq your dinner there poolside because the view and sunset doesn't get any better! The one suggestion we would like to make is have the maintance crew sync up the timers for the sprinkler system. Falling asleep to the crashing surf right out your window is wonderful, but waking up literally three times every night by different sprinklers turning on is not ideal! It's louder than the surf and both of us experienced this through out the week we stayed at Hale Kai. definately a small price to pay for staying in paradise!!!Mahalo!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha Kelly Mahalo for the kind words. I will talk to the maintance crew and see if we can do something about the sprinklers. So glad you enjoyed your stay and our property.Mahalo Valerie
A guest from Simi Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 We have vacationed all over the United States and out of the country but this was our first time in Maui. My husband, 19-year old daughter and myself stayed at the Hale Kai Condos in #202 and could not have asked for a better place. It was the perfect size for us, located right on the beach, just North of Lahaina...true perfection. We swam in the ocean with the turtles, just outside of our condo every day. We hate breakfast every day and night on the patio overlooking the ocean. We slept at night with the windows open hearing the beautiful sounds of the ocean. We couldn't have asked for nicer property and the staff were the best. We will be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from HKR, LLC, DBA: Hale Kai Oceanfront Condominiums Aloha Denyele Our property is small, quiet & quaint. The turtles are called the Honokowai turtles and have their own web site. We are lucky that they feed right off our property. Knowing youenjoyed your stay makes my day. Vacations are special and everyone should a special time to remember. Aloha and hope to see you back in the near future. Mahalo Valerie
