Aloha and welcome to Hale Kai # 213


Your Bliss in Paradise





Our condo is situated so close to the ocean that when you first open the door, it seems as though you could dive right in. So close in fact that your favorite pastime might just be kicking back on the lanai, relaxing to the soothing sound of the surf, and enjoying some of the most scenic vistas Hawaii has to offer!


Here you can view marine life right from our lanai, including humpback whales in season and sea turtles frolicking directly in front of the property year round. You can also enjoy easy access to swimming or snorkeling right in front of the property via the adjoining beach, or just relax by the oceanfront pool and revel in the scenic views of Molokai and Lanai right offshore.


Our recently remodeled condo continues the tropical ambiance indoors through the extensive use of bamboo materials, porcelain "travertine" tile floors, tropical themed ceiling fans and fixtures, and louvered doors. As a second floor end unit with vaulted ceilings, it also affords its occupants with an abundance of natural light and ventilation.


The remodeled kitchen features granite countertops, custom maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and an ultra quiet dishwasher, and is fully equipped for when you would rather dine in.


Our living room and kitchen feature a direct view of the Ocean and the island of Molokai, which is all the more grand once you step out onto our balcony, or "lanai" as we say here in Hawaii.


In the bedroom, you will find a new Cal King-Sized Bed and 100% Organic Cotton Blackout Curtains, and in our newly remodeled bathroom, a walk in shower and high quality fixtures.


Extra sleeping accommodations in the living room include your choice of two Twin-sized Murphy beds, or a Punee (Hawaiian daybed).


For your entertainment, there's a 32" LCD Flat Screen TV, Blu-Ray Disc Player, iPhone/iPod compatible stereo, and free wireless internet access.


To minimize its impact on the environment, our unit is equipped with a solar attic fan, tankless water heater, energy star appliances, and energy efficient lighting and ceiling fans.


Just see our reviews on the next tab and you'll quickly see what we mean, Hale Kai # 213, truly a place to find your bliss in paradise.


Location:

Our condo is conveniently located midway between the Ka'anapali and Kapalua resort areas, just a 10-15 minute drive from most any West Maui attraction. On foot, it is just one minute away from the Honokowai Farmer's Market, organic food store and neighborhood coffee shop, and just a few minutes from many more restaurants and shops. And right next door is Honokowai Beach Park, an expansive open space featuring a recently upgraded playground area and shallow tide pools, perfect for the little ones.


Rates:

Rates for this unit are based on two occupants, (additional $15/night/person), and also vary depending on season, length of stay, and whether booked at the last moment.

    a guest from Wellington, CO recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of three loved our stay in Hale Kai 213. The condo was just as the pictures show... tastefully updated, clean, comfortable and the view was beautiful! Our three year old son thought the murphy beds and swimming pool were great. The beach was small, but convenient. We saw sea turtles swimming around everyday. We enjoyed sipping our morning coffee or having drinks and dinner in the evening on the lanai. There is a farmers market grocery store convienently located across the street (try the açaí bowls) and several small restaurants nearby (the fish market was our favorite). We would definitely stay in this condo again and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Maui!

    This was our 3rd time staying in 213 at Hale Kai. We love it and we plan on returning. This condo is very nicely updated with granite countertops and tile flooring. The king size bed is very comfortable. We spend most of our time on the lanai enjoying the gorgeous views and sunset dinners. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils. Walking distance to farmers market, coffee shop and several places where we got great tacos and breakfast burritos. Hale Kai has a clean, convenient laundry room and Valerie in the office is very kind and helpful. The pool is great, we love meeting the other folks visiting and enjoy seeing the permanent residents each time we return. We are not high rise resort fans so Hale Kai is a perfect fit for us.

    It was our 35th wedding anniversary. We went there with great expectations and the place exceeded them. We found turtles 25 feet off the beach on the rocks eating the Kelp it was awesome.! We will stay there again the next time we come. We went to the Westin to get a massage and that place is to commercial and to plastic.

    The rental was as spotless and just as pictured on website. Staff was very helpful and the location great- close to stores and short drive to nearby beaches. I love the upstairs balcony with the ocean/sunset view! The only thing is the hot afternoons due to west exposure (how else would you see sunset though!). We would leave for couple hours in the afternoon when it got hot. Overall it was fantastic!

    We have stayed at many vrbo and HomeAway rentals. This may be our favorite. The views of the ocean and surrounding islands was breathtaking. We woke up each morning and enjoyed our coffee with that view. Pool was clean and great temp. Walking to park and shops was fun and not touristy. Road to Hana was fantastic, visiting Haleakala was amazing. We loved Maui and would love to come back. Our only complaint of the whole week was that the living room couch was not comfortable, but who cares, we spent most of our time on the Lanai, pool, park and ocean. Great rental. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

    This was our first trip to Maui and it could not have been better. The location was perfect and the views spectacular. The condo was well equipped and very clean. We had a little problem with the power in our unit but Val took care of it quickly, letting us use another unit until the problem was solved. I would highly recommend this Condo Complex and we will be returning.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Hale Kai #213. The view was incredible and everything described on the website was spot on.

The people in the management office were super helpful and kind, and the other guests that we met were really nice and shared vacation tips with us. There is a great coffee shop and farmers market within walking distance, and it is close to Lahaina and Kaanapali beach. The location is perfect. We will definitely be staying here again.

    a guest from Whistler, BC recommends this vacation rental

    Absolutely loved this condo rental. Amazing ocean views and spent most evenings on the Lanai watching the sunset over the water. Exactly like the pictures - very clean, good amount of space (was just two of us) and had all the kitchenware we needed (would need to bring your own condiments though). Pool area was nice and quiet when we were there and lovely small sandy beach right beside where we saw turtles on our last day. Grocery store and beach equipment rental just across the road. Road traffic can be heard from bedroom so bring earplugs if light sleeper and like to lie-in (wasn't an issue for us). Valerie in the office was very responsive on pre trip emails and a great help when we were there. Looking forward to staying again when we next make it back to Maui.

    • Manager Responded on 5/24/2017

      Aloha guest from Whistler BC, thank you for sharing your feedback and your endorsement. Hanging out on the lanai enjoying the sunset is one of our favorite activities too. Having Valerie in our onsite office is a real advantage for our property as well, so thank you for mentioning her. The noise from the road can be an issue for people who want to sleep in, but we find that most guests wake up early with the time change, and want to get up and make the most of their limited time in Hawaii. As you mentioned, our unit is also very conveniently located within walking distance of many amenities. We hope that you can come stay again. Mahalo, The Mathews, Hale Kai # 213

    Larry N from White Rock, BC recommends this vacation rental

    The view and the proximity to the ocean were exactly as described in the rental ad - lovely! Really enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai and watching the turtles in the surf. There were really only 2 disappointments in our stay - beach equipment was almost non-existent- only able to access one chair, a mat and an umbrella. Had to rent chairs and boogie board. The living room furniture is VERY uncomfortable (sofa was AWFUL)but the bed was good. I would have liked more items in the kitchen such as salt, pepper, oil and other spices as well as some cleaning items for the bathroom. Overall, I would still recommend this to others and would book again, hopefully with more comfortable living room furniture!

    • Manager Responded on 12/14/2016

      Aloha Larry, Thanks for sharing your feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed the view and watching sea turtles from our lanai, but sorry that you found the living room furniture uncomfortable. We recently replaced our sofa bed with a Punee (Hawaiian daybed) to minimize the stains caused by guests not washing off their suntan lotion before sitting on the furniture, the last upholstery job having only lasted 1.5 years. The Punee is admittedly a little less comfortable than what we had before, but we expect that we won't have to reupholster it as often now. I also apologize for the fact that we only had one beach chair as we would normally have two, but unfortunately we find that they aren't always returned to the unit. As to boogie boards, I'm afraid that's something that we decline to provide for liability reasons, which is actually also why we don't stock spices and cooking oil. So while we would be happy to have you to stay in our unit again in the future, we hope that you will understand the limitations of what we can provide for such affordable rates.

    michael b from johnstown, CO recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at this unit 5-25 through 6-1-16. The only contact with the property management was during the check in and check out process, short and pleasant exactly what was needed.
    The unit itself was everything we needed for a week stay on the island.
    The lanai had the most wonderful ocean view, we spent a couple nights just watching the sun set with a glass of wine. The kitchen has all the equipment you would possibly need, everything worked well. I made good use of the BBQs several times wether steaks or kabobs of tiger shrimp I picked up from the fish market just a 2 minute walk from the condo.
    The location is right in the middle of West Maui, so if you plan to spend most of your time on this half of the island it is perfect. If not you will spend quite a bit of time driving to the other side.
    We snorkeled right outside the condo and while it was pretty decent, the bays and the beaches 10-15 minutes to the north and south were fabulous.
    Overall loved our time here and would not hesitate to come back.

    We absolutely loved staying here for our honeymoon! The views were incredible, and we loved being able to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. We enjoyed lounging by the view and taking in the beautiful views of Molokai and searching for sea turtles playing in the waves. We liked how quiet and peaceful the property was. The unit was very conveniently located to the Farmer's market, coffee and snorkel shops, the grocery store, and many restaurants. The property manager Valerie was very helpful, giving us lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat, and she even let us borrow her cooler!

    My wife and I stayed at Hale Kai Unit 213 from June 7th through June 13th and let me simply say that the stay was amazing. Unit 213 has the BEST view of the ocean and perfect sunsets every night. The feel inside the unit is great, it's a home away from home. Everything you need is inside this unit. The beach access is just steps away and the pool is clean and inviting as well. We will definitely be back!

    Our 4th Time staying at Hale Kai. We love the location. Saw 2 turtles sunning themselves on the very first day. Unit was very clean and had everything we needed. Loved the Murphy bed! As it allows us to sleep with the sounds of the ocean all night. Everything is only complaint is the street noise at night and early morning. Other than that we had a lovely stay. Thank You!

    • Manager Responded on 6/17/2015

      Aloha, Thanks for providing your feedback and for your continued patronage. That's great you were able to observe Sea Turtles sunning themselves. You'll often find them foraging in the surf in front of our property, but it's a rare treat for them to haul themselves out on the beach for a little sun, although it seems to have become much more common of late. Thank you for mentioning our Murphy beds, which are a unique feature of our unit. They're much more comfortable than the sleeper sofa that one usually finds in one bedroom units for the guests sleeping in the living room. Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to accommodate you again in the future. Mahalo, The Mathews, Hale Kai # 213

    Overall we really enjoyed our stay in this unit. Can't beat the view and the location was great since we didn't want to be in the huge resort area. Unit was the right size for two people and was fairly clean. Beach is pretty small and water a bit rough when we were there for snorkeling but we did see some huge turtles which was really fun. Bigger beaches just a short drive away. Hope to return someday!

    When we walked in the first thing we saw was the incredible view. My husband wanted to stay on the water and this was right on the water. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The bed was so cozy in the room and I can't say enough about the Murphy beds. So convenient and my son said comfortable. We could hear the waves all night. We stopped at Costco on our way to the condo and grabbed breakfast and lunch items. It was nice being able to sit out and eat on the lanai. There is also a little farmers market store across the street that we got chips and guacamole and other muchies. Bad *** Coffee was there as well. We walked to get coffee every morning. The lady working there was the best! There was a small beach for swimming but the water was really rough while we were there. We couldn't really snorkel. We talked to a couple of the owners that were there, very nice people. The laundry facility was great. The pool was awesome. Great location. Property managers were great to work with. Definitely a quiet place to come and relax.

    • Manager Responded on 12/6/2014

      Aloha, thank you for sharing your experience with our unit and for mentioning the friendliness of our neighbors and the service provided by our rental office. Your review says it all, a clean, well-stocked unit with scenic, oceanfront views, conveniently located near the farmers market and coffee shop, and yes, our Murphy beds in the living room are a much more comfortable alternative to the sofa-beds that typically apply in a one bedroom unit. Too bad about the surf during your stay, as the conditions are normally quite calm and suitable for snorkeling right in front. We agree, our lanai is the perfect place to take meals and just chillax! We'll hope to have the chance to accommodate you again in the future. Mahalo, The Mathews, Hale Kai # 213

    This is our fifth time staying at the Hale Kai. We have stayed in different units depending on how many people are in our party. Excellent oceanfront location, really enjoy having the pool and ocean to choose from in which to swim. The people who stay here are really friendly and it's nice to chat with other guests. Can get a little noisy in the morning on Lower Honoapiilani Road but it just makes you get up earlier to enjoy being in paradise! Convenient to be able to borrow beach chairs, boogie boards, and a cooler if they are there in the laundry room (sometimes other guests are using them already). We would definitely stay here again and in fact, I would love to buy one of the units. Trying to talk my husband into it! An added bonus is the honu (green sea turtles) that are right out in front of the pool on most mornings/evenings. Valerie (in the office) is really helpful with suggestions if you need them for local spots (shopping, eating places, etc.).Mahalo for another wonderful stay and we look forward to returning again and again!

    The view and location could not be beat. In a great area, in between the downtown Lahaina area and a bunch of great restaurants and beaches North of the condo. Only negative was that there was no air conditioning. This probably isn't an issue any other time of the year but it was unseasonably hot and lacking the usual trade winds. Very satisfied with everything else about our stay and the property.

    • Manager Responded on 9/30/2014

      Aloha, thanks for staying with us and sharing your experience. We're glad that you enjoyed the view and our location. It apparently has been unseasonably warm this last month as normally the trade winds along with our building's wide eaves and our unit's ample windows make our unit naturally comfortable with just the occasional use of ceiling fans. Please know that to help mitigate this situation in the future that we will soon be installing a solar powered attic fan to vent the vaulted ceiling area on the west facing side of our unit. So hopefully you'll be able to notice the difference if you choose to stay with us again. Mahalo, The Mathews, Hale Kai #213

    We love the location of Hale Kai, directly next door to a park and across the street from the health food grocery store. I walked over almost every morning to get my triple P smoothie. The condo is perfect for two gals needs. Comfy murphy bed in the living room and king in master. It's a small unit but fine for our needs and we enjoyed the close ocean front proximity. It was really hot during our stay so without a/c it may not be as comfy for some people when the trade winds are not blowing but we timed our days to return late enough that the sun was not directly on us. There is a shade you can pull down on the lanai to help keep the sun out though. Although the pool wasn't heated, it was perfect temperature during those hot days. Turtles feed on the reef in front of wall which is way cool! We wouldn't hesitate to return to Hale Kai although maybe during a cooler time of year!

    • Manager Responded on 9/18/2014

      Aloha Jeanine, Thanks for staying with us again and sharing your experience once more. We strive to provide accommodations to which our guests will want to return year after year, so we greatly appreciate your affirmation of what we offer. The trade winds that usually grace our islands along with our building's wide eaves and our unit's ample windows normally make our unit naturally comfortable with just the occasional use of ceiling fans. On occasion however, it can get a little warm in the middle of the day when the trades have failed to materialize. And while a dip in our oceanfront pool will always provide some relief, we will soon install a solar powered attic fan to help mitigate this condition. So hopefully you will notice the difference on your next visit. Mahalo, The Mathews, Hale Kai # 213

    Words cannot express enough the amazing experience my family had this past week at the Hale Kai. The room was exactly as it was described, furnished beautifully, and the views were ridiculous. We went to sleep every night with the lanai open...lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean and cool ocean breeze. The pool was refreshing and the small private beach allowed for snorkeling without ever leaving the property. We saw turtles EVERYDAY munching on seaweed off of the reef in front. This was my third time to Maui, but first time at the Hale Kai. I can honestly say that this trip was by far the best. I am already trying to figure out how I can book this same week next year! Mahalo!

    • Manager Responded on 7/15/2014

      Aloha Brian, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. We're thrilled that your family had such a great time. Your description of being lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean is making me wish I was there right now. Our unit's two twin-sized Murphy beds in the living room provide a very comfortable yet affordable option for a family of four. This is in fact exactly what we had in mind when we installed them, so we're always happy to see a family like yours take advantage of them. And how can you beat those sea turtles frolicking in the surf right in front of the property! We'll look forward to hosting you and your family again in the future.

    After 12 years coming to Hale Kai and bringing dozens of friends we expect more. We expect if we pay for 3 people in a unit that it has the beds made up for 3 people, towels for three people and the unit particularly clean. Even though we have come for so long, no special care is taken to ensure our unit is prepped properly. We had to make up one of the single beds ourselves and track down enough beach and bathroom towels for all of us. We have sent dozens of people to Hale Kai and now two friends come with us each year (last 5 years). We've never even received a thank you for that. It's an awesome place but it could be run much better. Also the units should be far cleaner. The cleaning during our three week stay was a joke and the unit was not clean when we arrived. We spend A LOT of money there. We'd expect to be treated as a special guest and thanks provided when thanks are deserved.

    • Manager Responded on 3/2/2014

      Aloha Brandi & Vince, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback, and thank you for renewing your reservation for next year. I'm sorry you feel that the unit wasn't adequately prepared for your arrival. I wish you had notified the office, as one call and the situation would have been quickly remedied. I also wish you had completed the check-in and check-out forms, as these are our quality assurance mechanisms for making sure that our guests are satisfied with the condition of their unit upon arrival and that they have enjoyed their stay. The former in particular is prepared and signed by our rental office personnel upon inspecting the unit and finding it ready for our guests' enjoyment. Hearing about your dissatisfaction with the arrival condition after you left unfortunately leaves us unable to do anything about it. Try as we may, I think that there may be guests that we will never satisfy. If you're as dissatisfied with Hale Kai as you sound based on your reviews the last two years, I wonder if it's time that you considered staying at another property. You may discover something much more to your liking, or you may find that what we offer isn't so bad after all. Fortunately, we have many guests that based on their reviews find our unit and Hale Kai overall to be exactly what they're looking for, so I don't think we'll have any trouble finding someone else to enjoy our unit in the interim.

    We found the perfect fit for a girls getaway to Maui with our Hale Kai rental #213. I knew I wanted to stay in Honokaui area and find an affordable rental for us gals on a budget but really didn't want to flip a coin to see who gets the bedroom and who gets a hide-a-bed. I then came across a ocean front condo unit that included the option of a murphy bed (with nice new comfy mattress I might add) and I knew this was it. All newly remodeled with a vaulted ceiling, and beautiful kitchen, the rental had everything we needed. We moved the coffee table aside and had enough room for us to practice yoga nearly every morning. It was quite warm mid Sept and at first was hesitant to rent a condo without air conditioning but the unit has several fans and when we moved to a condo down in Kihei for our last few nights we immediately ran over to turn off the a/c. It was too cold and too noisy, we knew then we had quickly acclimated to the tropical Maui climate. I've stayed in about 6 condos in this area in the past and would not hesitate to return to Hale Kai #213!

    • Manager Responded on 9/25/2013

      Many mahaloz for sharing your feedback. Yes, our two twin-sized murphy beds in the living room work well not only for families on a budget, but for friends enjoying a getaway as well, as there's no hard feelings over who got stuck with the sofa bed. And yes, who needs a/c! Even during the warmer part of the year, with the afternoon tradewinds, our building's wide eaves, and our unit's vaulted celings and natural ventilation, one can enjoy a vacation in Maui while still minimizing their impact on the environment. So thank you for staying with us and we'll hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future. Aloha, The Mathews, Hale Kai #213

    My wife, daughter and I stayed at Hale Kai #213 a couple weeks ago. We were so very pleased with the unit, as well as the property as a whole. The unit was very clean, updated, well positioned on the property with a wonderful ocean facing view. Our daughter slept easily on one of the 2 murphy beds in the living room. This feature was excellent as we could easily return the bed to upright during the day and use the living room when needed. The bedroom my wife and I slept in was very comfortable and spacious.

    The lanai was our special place each evening to relax after active days enjoying the surrounding area's offerings. From the lanai we could sit and look at island of Lana'i, the stretch of ocean in between, and we even saw sea turtles and spinner dolphins. After enjoying the incredible sunset each night (directly visible from the lanai) we would watch the stars come out 1 by 1 until the sky was full. We miss the routine so much already.

    We also enjoyed meeting the friendly and welcoming residents of the property. We learned about and participated in the daily conch shell horn blowing ceremony at sunset.

    The closeness of the property to Lahaina was very convenient to quickly drive to the venues for snorkeling, surfing, and dinner cruise excursions. The surrounding neighborhood was also great, with an organic market, coffee shop, water sports equipment rental, awesome restaurants, and an excellent beach park. So many things to see & do that were so close!

    Our Maui experience was so much better as a result of staying at Hale Kai, and we would eagerly recommend it to our friends and family. We already plan on staying there for our next Hawaiian vacation.

      Aloha Jim, Thanks for sharing your experience. A place that you'll want to return to time after time is exactly what we aim to provide, so we're glad to hear that your family had such a nice stay. As the view of Lanai is quite limited from our unit, the island view you were enjoying was probably that of Molokai. Otherwise I think your description nailed it, so much so that I'm longing for the time that we'll return ourselves. Please come stay with us again in the future.

    Marc D from Westminster, CO recommends this vacation rental

    My wife and I spent a fantastic week in early June in this exceptional unit. Unit #213 is wonderful. A lot of work has been put into the upkeep and it shows. Great comfortable king bed, clean modern kitchen with excellent appliances, updated bathroom, great living space with flat screen TV and I-pod docking station, and a lanai with spectacular view of ocean and Molokai. The quiet and less crowded pace is what really attracts us to the Hale Kai. Park right in front of your unit (no parking fees); walk across the street to local grocery; easy drive to Lahaina or Kahana; well maintained swimming pool; amazing sunsets; and friendly people. Are you kidding me.... we will be back.

    justin h from elk grove, ca recommends this vacation rental

    This was my second time to Maui and my second time staying on the West side. This resort and in particular condo number 213 was exactly as its described online and an absolute wonderfull place to stay. The condo was remodeled in 2010 and was done beautifully. The resort is clean and allways being washed or updated in some way. The grounds staff were out working every day on something to maintain the high level of neatness and overall look of the property. The owner of my condo was very concerned that ors stay was plesent and that all items in the condo was functioning as it should. He could not have been more informative and helpfull. The resort is low key and quiet which is exactly what we wanted. We would stay there again and again. The absolute only thing we had a problem with is the Cal King bed was very soft and by the end of the week was bothering our backs. Be aware that my girlfriend and I are both stomach sleepers.

    • Manager Responded on 6/18/2013

      Aloha Justin, thanks for providing your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that the bed was not to your liking. It is just two years old this month, so I don't think this is due to it being worn out. We were also just there last month and didn't notice it being too soft, although I guess people's preferences can be very subjective in that regard. We'll monitor the situation though and replace if this feedback becomes more common. So far, this is the first time anyone has registered a complaint about it. I'm glad you and your girlfriend found everything else to your liking and thank you for mentioning the efforts of our grounds people, who have been working hard to improve and maintain our gardens and common areas. Mahalo, Matt Mathews, Hale Kai #213

    Dan S from Mississauga, Ontario recommends this vacation rental

    After getting married in Oahu, unit #213 was a perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The view was breathtaking when we first opened the door to the unit and looked out the lanai window. We especially enjoyed the proximity to the local food market and coffee shop. Walking distance to everything you need including yummy fish tacos down the street and gelato. It was great to have a park next door to throw around a frisbee. Skip the hustle and bustle of the other resorts in the area and book this quiet and intimate gem! We would definitely book this unit again in the future and hope be back to Hake Kai again!

    • Manager Responded on 5/28/2013

      Mahalo for sharing your feedback Dan. I think you summed it up pretty well, a view to die for, convenient neighborhood shops and restaurants, and feeling as though you've lived Hawaii rather than just visited there. We will look forward to hosting you and your wife again in the future, perhaps on your anniversary next time. Aloha, Matt & Emiko Mathews, Hale Kai # 213

      Many mahaloz for your feedback. A place that you'll want to return to time and time again is exactly what we aim to provide, so we'll look forward to hosting you again. As it happens, we're enjoying our unit right now ourselves and the sunsets between Lanai and Molokai have been magnificent as usual, and the conch-blowing good fun too! Thank you as well for your kind words regarding Valerie, our Rental Office Manager. Having an onsite Rental Manager is of course very convenient for our guests, but we feel that having someone as special as Valerie in this position is just another factor that distinguishes Hale Kai from other properties.

    a guest from St Albert, Alberta recommends this vacation rental

    This property is a great way to "go local" without scrimping on the luxuries of home. We chose this property because we are anti resort people who wanted a low key experience. This unit has great upgrades and a view to die for. Neither of us have ever stayed in a unit that was this close to the water. We have a one year old and it was no trouble renting a crib from a local company and accommodating his sleep needs. There is no air conditioning, so it took us a bit to learn how to take advantage of the winds, but it can actually be quite comfortable once you get the hang of that. My only complaint is that the modern cable style of the railing on the lanai is not safe for children- especially babies. We had to keep our son away from the edge of the lanai at all times- he could easily pass through the cables if left alone. This is not the fault of this unit- the whole complex has this style. I think this unit is probably the best on this property if you consider all of the upgrades, the tasteful decor and the special touches considered by the owner. We would love to come back one day- we made a lot of special memories here as a family.

    • Manager Responded on 4/21/2013

      Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback, especially regarding the decor of which we are quite proud. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. You're right, if someone is looking for the resort experience, our property probably won't fill the bill. However, if they're looking for a beautiful setting without the high prices and noise associated with a resort, then our low-key property is probably just for them. The stainless-steel cable railings on our lanai that you mentioned were just installed in the last year to bring the railings up to current code. While the greater visibility that they afford may give the impression that a child could pass through them, please be assured that the distance between the cables conforms to standards that are designed to prevent such an occurrence. That said, I would still recommend against leaving a toddler unattended there. A place that you'll want to return to again and again is exactly what we aim to provide, so we'll hope to host you again in the future, perhaps when your son is old enough to utlize one of the murphy beds in the living room.

    Stacy H from Kent, WA recommends this vacation rental

    The unit is everything we were looking for during our stay in Hawaii. The view couldn't be any better. We were right on the water and could watch the sea turtles in the waves. There is a telescope in the unit so I imagine whale watchers would be in heaven during season. The unit design is Hawaiian without being tacky and the two twin murphy beds give the unit a lot of flexibility. The complex is very quiet and small and has a very relaxed feel. Having a BBQ available by the pool is great. We will absolutely come back and bring the kids next time. One thing I would point out is that the units are very close together and a lot of the walls/windows are slatted to let in the winds which keep the unit cool. This is a great thing because you really feel like you're outdoors. It's not so great if you want a lot of privacy. Not a big deal and totally worth it for where you are but something to mention. We will definitely be back.

    • Manager Responded on 12/7/2012

      Aloha Stacy, Many Mahaloz for staying with us and sharing your experience! The scenic views, the proximity to nature, the relaxed vibe, the temperate climate, I think you did a great job describing what folks can expect when staying in our unit. The louvered windows along with the vaulted ceiling and the wide eaves all combine to make our unit naturally comfortable even on a warm day, but for the benefit of anyone else reading this, please be assured that the louvers can be closed and that the bedroom features high quality, black out curtains. Thanks for mentioning the two twin-sized Murphy beds too, since they make our one bedroom unit a comfortable yet economical alternative for a small family. We look forward to hosting you again in the future, but please bring your kids next time if you can. Mahalo, Matt Mathews, Hale Kai 213

    Kathy G from Mill Valley, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    The unit was modern and clean and in a central location. We liked that it was an upper corner unit. And it was a 3 minute walk to a groovey organic shop so we never had to venture far for some yummy food. No complaints. Totally worth the value. It was lovely to sit on the lanai in the afternoon and we were sometimes treated to turtles munching in the sea. There is no beach to speak of here -- one needs to drive down the road a bit to get to a white sand beach.

    • Manager Responded on 11/11/2012

      Aloha Kathy, Many Mahaloz for staying with us and for sharing your experience. Sitting on the lanai and watching the turtles right out front is also one of our favorite "activities" there, although snorkeling with them is a close second. You're right, if someone's looking to stay next to a big, white sandy beach, then Hale Kai might not be for them, but we do have a small adjoining beach that depending on the time of year does fill in with a fair amount of sand, and that allows easy access to the reefs out front. And as you mentioned, we're very conveniently located near the "Farmers' Market" Organic Grocery store, but also the thrice weekly Farmers Market, and numerous other neighborhood shops and restaurants. So compared to staying in a touristy resort area, many folks say that a stay at our place leaves them feeling as though they've lived rather than just visited Hawaii. In any event, that's the experience we try to provide, so we'll hope to host you again in the future. Mahalo, Matt & Emiko Mathews, Hale Kai 213 Owners

    Condo was as described with all the amenities of home. Relaxing experience from the first day. Loved the sound of the waves, they were calming. Everyone was friendly and the manager was very helpful. Would like air conditioning when the trade winds were absent. Couch could use cleaning. Would definitely stay here again .

    • Manager Responded on 11/13/2012

      Aloha Betty, Thanks for staying with us and sharing your feedback. I apologize about the couch, it will be cleaned as soon as our current guest departs. As you may have learned during your stay, "Hale Kai" means "Home by the Sea" in Hawaiian, and that plus the Aloha of our manager and neighbors seems to have summed up your experience. I'm surprised that you felt the need for air conditioning though as in our experience the building's wide eaves, and our unit's vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and ample louvered windows keep our unit quite comfortable, even when the tradewinds are absent. Perhaps a dip in the oceanfront pool would have helped? We hope that you can come and enjoy some R&R with us again some time. Mahalo, Matt & Emiko Mathews (Hale Kai 213 Owners)
