Absolute Perfection!

Staying at Tom and Tami's home was absolute perfection. My husband and I came to Maui for our 5 year wedding anniversary; this was our first trip to Hawaii. Kihei is a beautiful little town, with tons of beaches, little souvenir shops, great places to eat and easy access to all of the other towns in Maui. The location and amenities of the condo were more than what we could have asked for. Tom was great and communicated with us regularly. He met us at the condo on the day we arrived, welcomed us with some delicious sweets (the best tasting banana bread I've ever had) and then gave us a quick tour of the place and the condo amenities. Tom and Tami thought of everything and included beach towels, chairs, coolers, snorkeling equipment, etc. You name it, they have it! There is a binder in the entry way that has some different restaurants recommended by Tom and Tami which really came in handy. They also have some books on Maui, which we explored, and some board games, which my husband and I used a few times. This condo is absolutely gorgeous, clean, and perfectly located and it is right across the street from the beach. We would spend a day at the beach, then head back and use the grill to cook, then have dinner on the condos lanai, overseeing the ocean and beautiful Haleakala. We rented a car so getting around the island was not a problem. After traveling around the entire island during our stay, I would recommend this place to everyone. I myself wouldn't stay anywhere else. Tom and Tami, my husband and I thank you both for allowing us to stay at your home. We truly hope to stay here again soon!

Exceeded Expectations!

Tom and Tami's place far exceeded our expectations. This was our first time booking through Airbnb so naturally we were nervous, however Tom and Tami's place felt like our home away from home. Their place was clean and equipped with everything we needed during our stay, including toiletries and kitchen dishes and utensils. The home was very close to the beach and tons of restaurants. Not only did they provide tons of information on activities and restaurants, etc. before our arrival and at the home, Tom checked in to see if there was anything else he could help us with. I would definitely stay here again!

Awesome Host!

I have used Airbnb a lot in my travels and this is the first time I have felt like our host made a difference to our trip. Tom and Tami made it feel like we were staying at a friend's home rather than a rental. They were super proactive in making sure we had everything we needed and were on hand to answer any questions we had. I have never left a review before for any other stays, but I feel that this experience is truly one worth sharing. I look forward to staying at this perfect location again very soon!

Can't Wait to Return!

Our stay at Hale Kamaole was amazing. The condo had a very homey feel to it. The king-size bed and the balcony with an ocean view were just a few of our favorite aspects of the condo. The binder, containing fun things to do and good places to eat, became an amazing resource for us, as well. We chose different beaches, restaurants, and activities to do to everyday, that were suggested in the binder, which were all amazing. All-in-all, we loved every minute of our stay here. We will definitely be back!

Great Experience!

Tom and Tami can be reached easily, I visited Maui for the first time with my family. Tom/Tami were very helpful answering all my questions and checking regularly if everything is okay. Tom offered pack-n-play and high chair, for which I cannot thank Tom enough :) This condo is spacious, clean and beautiful. Tom and Tami have done a wonderful job of making this place a top one. The complex is quiet and an excellent place for someone to relax and enjoy the stay. Kamaole Beach Park is just a few mins walk. In fact, I was able to view the ocean from the Lanai. Restaurants and shops are only a few miles away. Next time I visit Maui, Tom and Tami's place will be first on my list :)

Terrific Condo and Location

The location is terrific- just across the street from Kamoale III beach (a favorite with the locals), and a 10 minute walk from restaurants and stores. Less than 25 minutes from the airport in Kahului, or to Maalaea. The condo is in great shape- no signs of being a well-worn rental that often is masked by carefully taken photos for other properties. Quite the opposite; everything is in like new condition. The bed was comfortable. A/C is available in the bedroom only, and due to condo rules, cannot be operated between 10pm and 8am, the association's "quiet time". The temperature really wasn't a problem- ceiling fans were sufficient and things cooled off at night. We did appreciate the quiet. The owners showed a lot of thought and consideration in equipping the condo. Snorkels, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, robes, even bug spray (which was not necessary) was available. Plenty of back up supplies (e.g., paper products) were available. While all of my communications with the owners were via text and email, we found them very responsive and accommodating. They were genuinely concerned that their residence was to our satisfaction.

We'll Be Back!

We absolutely loved staying at Tom and Tami's beautiful condo at Hale Kamaole. Tom was extremely accommodating and responsive during the booking period and throughout our stay. The condo was beautifully and tastefully decorated, and included everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to create a home cooked meal inside or out at the lovely community BBQ area. We found the gas grills were a great addition to the Hale Kamaole property. The lanai closet contained everything we needed for our days at the beach - Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrellas, snorkel gear, cooler, boogie boards and more! Again, only the items that you would need on vacation, absolutely clear of any clutter or unnecessary items. We found the quality of the items and the organization of the entire condo to be top notch. We felt like we were at home within minutes of our arrival. The condo is perfectly located minutes from amazing Wailea and Makena beaches, golf, shopping and so much more. Take a look at Tom and Tami's detailed binder full of great recommendations for adventures and places to eat throughout the island. A wonderful personal touch! We have stayed at Hale Kamaole many times in the past, but truly, this was the best experience we've had there, and we look forward to vacationing at the "Island Style Ocean View Condo" again in the future. We highly recommend it to those looking to kick back and enjoy a wonderful Maui vacation. Thank you, Tom and Tami, for your genuine hospitality and for making our stay at your beautiful condo so pleasant and such a memorable one. Aloha!

Great Location!

This location is unbeatable! Located in Kihei, you are a short drive to scenic beaches and walking distance to numerous restaurants; and you have access to a fully equipped kitchen. Tom and Tami communicate very efficiently and are super understanding. Mahalo!!

Perfect Holiday!

Tom was a great host, he checked in a few times before our arrival, the condo was spotless when we arrived, with chilled white wine and home made banana bread waiting for us upon our arrival. Such a thoughtful touch. When we told Tom we were thinking of renting a crib for use during our stay since we traveled with our 17 month old daughter, he offered up a pack and play and a high chair, they were ready and waiting for us in the condo upon arrival and it made travel just that much easier. Tom and Tami have made a beautiful tropical get away, from the luxury linens to the cute decor, you will not be disappointed by a stay in their lovely condo across from one of the best beaches in South Maui. We look forward to returning to Maui and Tom and Tami's condo in the future, it was perfect!

Just Wow!

As Canadians, this is our first time in Maui! All I can say is WOW! Maui is an amazing place! We were fortunate enough to stay at Tom and Tami's place. If we could give this place 10 stars, we would have! Here are some of the things that we loved the most: 1) Location location location! This place is perfectly situated across from one of the Kamaole beaches. It allowed us to simply bring our boogie boards, beach towels and head out without having to bring any expensive things on the beach like phones, wallets etc. 2) Amenities. Their kitchen is full of spices and all the equipment you would want. They have BOTH a gas BBQ AND a coal BBQ that is cleaned daily. They have a swimming pool (great to swim in even at night). They have a closet full of beach items (e.g. lawn chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, boogie boards, bocce set, etc!) This saved us a lot of money as we didn't need to rent any of this from the local store. 3) Tom was very quick about replying to my messages and helped to answer any questions we had. 4) There is AC in the bedroom and a fan in the living room. In our time there, we never felt that it was too hot. The temperature was perfect. 5) The place looks exactly as advertised if not even better. The place was spotless and I felt very at home. We saved a ton of money just cooking on our own while there. We would highly recommend this place to others.

Truly the Most Wonderful Rental on Maui

From beginning to end, this experience was 5-star all the way. Tom was responsive and flexible throughout the booking process, the condo was clean, updated, well-stocked and the most well-thought out rental that I've ever had the pleasure to stay in. When I say that Tom and Tami have thought of everything you might need, I mean it! No detail has been overlooked - from kitchen gadgets to snorkel gear to a small library. An amazing location right by the elevator (if needed) and steps to the beach, pool and BBQ area. I love Hale Kamaole and will only be staying at this unit in the future. My stay was wonderful. Much aloha to Tom and Tami. Mahalo.

Great Vacation Experience

We want to thank Tom and Tami for providing a great vacation stay experience. From the time we arrived, until we left, they were available for any questions we had. The condo is in a great location and was clean and well kept. Tom and Tami thought of just about everything, the unit was stocked with items to help make our stay enjoyable...such as beach gear, towels, umbrella, coolers, beach bag, snorkel gear and more. I liked having a washer and dryer handy and the kitchen is well stocked with items you need for cooking great meals. The bed was comfortable too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look forward to returning and staying at Tom and Tami's place.

Beautiful Island Condo

Tom and Tami made us feel welcome and comfortable from the start. The condo was well furnished with a cheerful island flavor. There was a pitcher of cold filter water in the fridge when we arrived and some snacks and a note of welcome. We also enjoyed the CDs with an island theme and, of course, a player just a perfect complement to the island atmosphere. As expected all the kitchen and beach gear were provided. This was a hit! The Kihei location made it easy for us to access all the activities we had planned. Truly a great location just steps from the beach with great food and shopping close by as well. Tom and Tami also recommended a great concierge which made our activity planning a snap. The view was stunning especially at sunset. We would love to vacation here again.

Dream Come True

Tom and Tami's place is a dream come true! The location of the condo couldn't be better: steps away from the beach, and a short drive to restaurants, shopping, and the gorgeous Wailea beaches. The condo was so well appointed, there wasn't a single thing that we wanted for. In addition to this, Tom was such a kind, approachable and available host. Any inquiry we had was promptly addressed, and they were so thoughtful of our needs traveling with a 3 year old. I wouldn't hesitate to go back for a second! Mahalo Tom and Tami for opening up your lovely home to us!

Perfect Location

Our family fully enjoyed staying at Tom and Tami's condo - the location was perfect (across from a beautiful park and beach and easy access to stores and restaurants) and the place was immaculately clean (just as described). Don't forget to ask Tom for his recommendations on places to go and food to eat (including Ulalani's for the best shave ice ;)

Great Value!

We arrived to a bottle of wine and some island treats. The location was perfect for us. Very close to beach and park. Tom and Tami seem to know what they are doing. Almost everything you need to make your stay easier, they thought of. Beach equip, web access, a/c, local discount cards (saved us $57 at the Foodland), books, games. We are already planning our trip back. With all the little extras, it was a great value.

Best Ever!

We have stayed at various Airbnb locations throughout the world and your home was the best ever. Your eye for detail to make people comfortable is meticulous! It felt like a home away from home.

Amazing Anniversary Trip

Island Paradise

Not only was the condo filled with everything we needed but it provides easy access to the entire island! There are so many amazing restaurants and sunset-watching beaches within walking distance, so much so that you could spend your entire vacation right in Kihei.

Best Unit at Hale Kamaole

We have being staying in Hale Kamaole for 15 years and this unit is by far the best one we have experienced. It exceeds the description on this site.Tom and Tami's excellent taste in decor has created a tropical, sophisticated feel to the unit, which is exceptionally well equipped with top quality linens and kitchen ware as well as general supplies and an lanai closet full of beach gear. The very comfortable Murphy bed was a bonus for us as we had family visit. We also appreciated the Netflix and free phone calls to Canada. The unit was super clean and well maintained and Tom was available any time we needed anything. We particularly enjoyed the lanai with views of the ocean and the mountains. Hale Kamaole is, and has always been a well maintained property with lots of lush greenery and tropical flowers. There is plenty of parking and it is located steps from sandy Kam 3 beach. I can't say enough about this unit except that we hope to make it our new "home from home" in January and February for may years to come. Mahalo Tom and Tami for making our vacation so comfortable.

Wonderful Getaway!

This condo is in a perfect location - close to great places to eat and across the street from a beach! And it's got everything you need while on vacation - beach supplies, board games, books, Hawaiian CDs...Tom was so helpful in providing recommendations to us before our stay and even had milk and banana bread waiting for us for breakfast after we arrived so late at night. These owners definitely go above and beyond!! We had a perfect vacation here!

This condo had everything we needed to feel like we were at home. While we were steps away to the beach, restaurants and shopping, we could also stay in and sit on the quiet lanai and enjoy the island sights and sounds.

Maui Superhosts!

Tom and Tami really deserve the SuperHost label. They went well out of their way to make sure we had a great stay in Maui. They really do care about their guests and it shows. Every detail is incredibly thought out from the awesome welcome gift of island banana bread, the Road to Hana CD and all of the baby-friendly items. We also loved your sheets, towels and toiletries. Kihei is well situated on Maui for travelers. It's right in between the West and East sides of the island and is kind of a suburban beach town complete with surf shops and health food stores. The condo itself is literally across the street from a nice park and beach. We loved it!

We Loved It!

Our two week stay at Tom and Tami's condo could not have been easier or better. The condo has everything you need and then a little bit extra awesome on top. Great location with one of the best beaches in Maui across the street. Really lovely, comfortable, pretty and fully equipped condo. The lanai is large and has a great view both ways - green vistas of Upcountry one way and the lush lawn, pool and swaying palm trees and ocean the other. Booking and connecting with Tom was easy, personable and simple. Highly recommend if you want to stay in the South Maui area. Can't say enough good things. I didn't want to come home! Thanks Tom and Tami! Mahalo!!

Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else on Maui

We've stayed multiple times at Tom and Tami's condo. We love cooking our meals at the grill and hanging out on the lanai with its awesome view of the beach, mountain, and sunsets. It's across the street from Kamaole III Beach and we've swam with turtles many times there. We love early morning beach walks, surfing, paddle boarding, and kayaking. The condo is clean and well-appointed, and you can't beat the proximity to many great restaurants like Monkeypod, Three's, Cafe O'Lei, Gannon's, Kihei Caffe, Da Kitchen and many more. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

Trip of a Lifetime!

We couldn't have wished for a better experience with Tom and Tami and stay at their condo. They were easy to communicate with before we arrived, Tom met us at the condo to go over the essentials once we arrived, and they touched base throughout our stay to make sure all was well. Just fantastic hosts. The condo is clean, perfectly equipped, comfortable, and ideally located - central to everything, really. We will be back (for sure!), and we look forward to staying here again. In fact, we've already begun discussing our return! Thank you, Tom and Tami, for such a wonderful stay. Maui is beautiful beyond words.

Wonderful Beach Condo

Tom and Tami have a wonderful beach condo. At the condo, there is absolutely everything you might need for your vacation (beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, coolers, snorkeling gear, water shoes etc.). The place was very clean with comfortable furniture, especially the bed! The location was spectacular, just a short walk to many beaches, shops, & food. When we first arrived, Tom was there to greet us and give us a tour of his place. He was so nice and made us feel comfortable right away. We originally were planning on staying at the Marriott in Wailea, but were SO happy that we decided to stay at Tom and Tami’s place because in my opinion, it was so much better than a hotel! If we end up going back to Maui, we hope we can stay at their place again! Mahalo!

We had a wonderful stay at Tom and Tami's condo. The location was great, with beaches just steps away by foot and easy access to everywhere that we wanted to go. The condo was clean and bright, and had everything that we needed. Tom was a great source of local knowledge. His binder on what to do, what to see, and where to eat was a real asset. The CD for the guided tour of the road to Hana was terrific. Tom met us at the condo and spent time getting us settled in and oriented. His welcoming gift of coffee and a box of chocolates was a nice touch. Tom was always available to answer our questions. We would certainly recommend this condo.

In Love With This Maui Paradise!

This property was perfect in every way! From the location, to the darling decor! Everything we needed was included in the condo. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, mats, boogie boards, cooler, etc! This was our third trip to Hawaii, and in previous trips we have had to purchase these items. It was wonderful not having to worry about that expense this time. This trip was a three- generation girls trip- My mother, myself, and my 20 and 18 year old daughters. Tom was incredibly helpful and welcoming and it was nice to know there was someone close on the island in case we needed anything! The condo was spotless and perfectly roomy for the four of us. We loved eating breakfast on the lanai that over looks the pool and ocean. We also REALLY APPRECIATED Tom's favorite things binder and email! Because of his recommendation we went on TWO Pacific Whale Foundation cruises and are so happy we did! We saw dozens of whales up close and are still in awe about how incredible it was! If you get a chance, you must absolutely do the PWF Island Rhythms Sunset Cruise with Marty Dread! You will not regret it, I mean, when can you combine a Maui Sunset, Whales, Reggae Music, Dinner, and Dancing???? We cannot wait to return and would stay in this property again and again!

Our family had a perfect stay at Tom & Tami's condo. The pleasant view of the ocean (with sunset!) and landscape, comfy bed, island decoration and the clean and fully equipped kitchen made us fall in love at first sight. The binder full of suggestions on activities and food helped a lot for us first timers to Maui. The pool is conveniently downstairs, and the beaches are not far away. A closet full of beach gears is a big plus, and the in-house washing machine and dryer are super handy. Tom is very responsive and kept in touch with us from even before our vacation, making sure we had everything we needed during our stay.

This Place is a Gem!

Tom and Tami had constant communication with us even before the trip with useful information about the area and the check-in process. The place was a gem. It has everything you need and a very convenient location. The condo is spacious, clean and cozy. Who wants to stay in a hotel when you can have this? They also greeted us with some souvenirs to take home! There are excellent restaurants and grocery stores around the area. The beach across the street is excellent and we even got to see some sea turtles during snorkeling! Tom was very friendly and relaxed. And he's always available to address any questions we had. It makes a huge difference for hosts who knows how to take care of their guests vs. the ones who don't. Tom and Tami are definitely the former and we have a lot to learn from them. Hope we will come back again. Mahalo!

Tom & Tami greeted us with a welcome gift of candy, coffee and souvenirs. The condo was well decorated, clean and so comfortable. It was well stocked with toiletries, dishes, washer/dryer and Netflix streaming from the TV when we wanted some couch time. The lanai was well stocked with boogie boards, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, sand mats and more. We were able to just walk across the street and swim with turtles morning and night. Another thing we loved about the condo is that they took the time to put together an activities book with some of Maui's must see places and eats. Since it was our first time on island we used it a lot. I definitely would recommend this property to anyone looking for an amazing, clean, comfortable getaway. Thank you so much Tom and Tami!

Absolutely loved this place. What is on your list? Ocean view, check. Miles & miles of beach walking, check. Awesome sunset view from lanai, check. Best part was all the great beach toys for your use - boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkels - check, check, check. Oh, and the furnishings are fantastic. Walking distance to all the great restaurants and bars. I've stayed at Kaanapali and Kapalua and Kihei is my favorite. Can't wait to go back & definitely want to stay at Hale Kamaole #214.

Great Getaway With 'Home Away From Home' Feel

Highly recommend this condo. The king bed is comfortable and the furniture is great. We sat on the deck and drank our coffee each morning while enjoying the ocean view. The complex is quiet and very well appointed. The community charcoal BBQ's are great and convenient to the condo. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook when we wanted (not that often) and make cocktails when we wanted (very often). It's just across the street to the Kamaole 3 beach and park which provides great snorkeling and other water sports and a perfect place to watch the sunset. Tom & Tami's place provides a ‘home away from home’ feel at a great value and we'll absolutely be staying here again.

Condo Was Perfect For Us!

Our time at the condo was fantastic! It was the perfect place for me, my husband and our 2 year old daughter. The condo is spacious, efficiently planned and has tasteful island decor. Tom met us at the door with welcome gifts and Hawaiian music on the stereo and we felt like our vacation had begun! The beach, as well as a huge grass park, is across the street and so beautiful. If you sit in the park, you'll have the perfect view of the sunset every evening. Tom has put together a binder with a ton of information on where to eat, play or relax and he even includes how far away they are and his own personal review. For me, the best suggestion was definitely Leoda's Pie Shop- the banana cream pie is a dream! For our next trip to Maui, we will definitely be staying at this condo!

Fantastic Base Camp!

Tom and Tami's place was fantastic. We needed a 'base of operations', as we were attending a wedding that weekend and this place delivered. Location is great - walking distance from shops and shores. Tom met us upon arrival and gave us a great walk through. They've really put a lot of thought and consideration into what one needs on their stay. They've added a lot of nice little touches (i.e: beach chairs, towels, and toys; easy-use Netflix; keychain with wrist coil so you don't lose it; teas and coffees; etc.) that made our stay easy and effortless.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer

My boyfriend and I only stayed a short time and wish we could've stayed longer. The condo was really nice, clean, and had everything we needed. The location is close to many restaurants, shops, supermarkets, activity guides and, of course the beach!! When we arrived, Tom met us at the condo, gave us a quick tour and even prepared a gift for us! My boyfriend loved their Hawaiian music CD collection, we listened to music whenever we were in the condo. Tom is a very nice, kind, warm and responsible guy. I highly recommend this place. We really appreciate everything and had a great time in Maui. Thank you so much.

Everything Was Perfect!

Tom and Tami's condo has the feeling of staying in a hotel with the privacy of your own home. All of the provided amenities are top quality. The king size bed was oh so comfy for our afternoon naps after walking back from snorkeling at the beach. The location was exceptional...and the ocean view from the balcony was quite relaxing. Tom greeted us upon our arrival and even brought by a water filter we inquired about. They live about a mile away and were fully available if we had any needs. Loved the goodies that were set out on the table to welcome us. We even met up with our host for a drink at a local restaurant one evening. Monkeypod...great Mai-tais!! We did take Tom's advice and barbequed one evening by the pool. Met some great people with fun stories to share of their Maui experiences while waiting for coals to heat up! It was nice to take a walk to the pool and refresh after driving around exploring, or returning from the beach. Overall, we would definitely suggest this place to our friends and hope to return to Tom and Tami's lovely condo someday. The space was perfect for 2 and we have already envisioned coming back with another couple and making use of the Murphy bed. Loved the artwork and the uncluttered feel of the space! :-) Mahalo for being so gracious and hospitable!

My Vote For Best All-Around Home Base

This condo has it all: Great ocean view, amazing location directly across from Kam3, fully-stocked kitchen, wildly comfortable bed, large array of beach accoutrements, Netflix on Demand--even soaps and lotions like you get at a Westin! The owners are local and responsive, the rates highly competitive. Unless you require a private butler to complete your vacation experience, I don't see how you could do better. :)

Loved Hale Kamaole #214!

My family stayed in HK #214 for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I have been to Maui a few times but never stayed in Kihei. What a great location to relax! The beaches and sunsets were beautiful. Restaurants, shopping, beaches and water activities were just a short walk away. The condo was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed, including sand toys for our toddler. :) We enjoyed relaxing on the lanai for breakfast and taking in the ocean view. The pool was also nice and well maintained. We will stay here again next year!

Best Place We've Stayed on Maui!

This is the best place we've stayed on Maui. Lots of sunshine and beautiful sunsets. The condo has a relaxed island feel along with the spacious tropical grounds at Hale Kamaole. We enjoyed dining on the private lanai and loved the nightly HK conch band at sunset. Scott graciously accepted a position in the conch band and has a T-shirt to prove it! :) Can't wait to come back next year!

Spectacular Sunsets

Thanks so much for the use of your condo. It's equipped with everything required in the kitchen and all the toys needed for the beach. The sunset views from the lanai were spectacular. We had an awesome time. Mahalo.

Well-stocked Condo!

Stayed at Hale Kamaole #214 for 5 nights. We usually stay at Kamaole Sands next door, but we couldn't find a unit we liked there, so we chose to book at Hale Kamaole. We are really glad we did! The complex is quiet, much smaller than Kamaole Sands, and very friendly. This specific unit was very well stocked (boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella for the beach; dishes for at least six and pots and pans in the kitchen) and everything was in good working order. The unit faces one of the pools and has an ocean view. We definitely recommend Hale Kamaole complex and this unit!

Maui Memories

How very special it has been staying in your beautiful condo. Your personal island touches truly exude the warmest aloha! We loved every Maui moment - especially the incredible sunsets from your lanai. It's been a dream come true, thanks so much!

Tropical Paradise

Thanks a million for sharing your tropical home with us. The condo is beautiful with a perfect location in South Maui. The coral just across the street at Kamaole 3 Beach is amazing, saw lots of fish and turtles. Had a blast on the Blue Water Rafting tour and the short hike into Haleakala. Altogether, an unforgettable visit to Maui. We've already booked our stay here for next year. Aloha!

Maui Wowie!

My wife and I stayed here for our 24th anniversary. It was our third trip to Maui and it is without a doubt the best place we have ever stayed. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious and the location could not have been better. We liked it so much we booked an extra night, something we have never done before. Everything was perfect and we would go back in a heartbeat.

Our Aloha Summer Home

We're going on our third summer at Hale Kamaole #214. We like it so much, we stay for a month at a time! The condo is beautiful, clean, cozy, and well-appointed - and we're pretty fussy about accommodations, so you can trust our judgment. It's also conveniently located to the Kamaole beaches, Wailea, and Keawakapu - home of our favorite yoga studio (Maui Yoga Path) and happy hour spot (Five Palms), not to mention what we believe is the most beautiful beach and view on Maui. Lots of activities are nearby too - surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling...all within walking distance. We love grilling here nearly every night, which is a fun way to get to know the residents and other visitors. Everyone is kind and the complex is a peaceful retreat. We enjoy breakfast on the lanai every day - with the mountain on one side and the beach on the other. The hosts, Tom and Tami, are warm, generous, and always leave a little "welcome" gift bag filled with island treats. It's so lovely to have it waiting there for you when you arrive. Yeah, so basically we're sold on this place. We've recommended it to many friends and will continue to do so. And of course, we'll keep coming back each year. Stay here - you'll have a wonderful, relaxing visit!

You Thought of Everything!

Could not have been happier with my stay in your beautiful condo. Everything was spot on from the welcome gift to the island feel. Appreciated all the beach accessories and loved the soaps and shampoo! Can't wait to come back!

Home Away From Home

Thank you for making our vacation a true home away from home. We didn't lack for anything and really enjoyed your island condo. This is our second stay a Hale Kamaole and will make sure our next visit is in #214! Mahalo!

A Perfect Tropical Holiday

It was our 7th straight year staying at Hale Kamaole and your unit is the loveliest we've stayed in. Your welcome gift bag was a wonderful touch - thank you! We enjoyed lots of sun, whales, turtles, snorkeling and visiting with old friends. In fact, we've already booked for next year - aloha!

Wonderful 52nd Anniversary

We can't begin to tell you how much we have enjoyed your island home. You provided everything to make our stay very comfy. We'll never forget our 52nd wedding anniversary celebration in your gorgeous slice of paradise. Hale Kamaole #214 is No Ka 'Oi! Mahalo!

Watch The Sunrise Over Haleakala and Sunset into the Pacific

We love this Maui location! Unit 214 has a great lanai view. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai as you watch the daybreak over Haleakala. You can watch the whales and the evening sunset ritual of the community blowing conch shells as the sun disappears into the Pacific Ocean. A short walk across the street takes you to the beach. You can look for sea turtles in the early morning if you walk along the ocean toward the harbor. This unit is well furnished and comfortable on the 2nd floor. You can walk easily to Wailea and walk along the ocean front.

Love the Island Decor

Thanks for the welcome gift - what a wonderful surprise! Love the island decor of the condo and location on the Hale Kamaole grounds. My son and I couldn't have asked for a better place to get away. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of paradise.

Great Linens and Wine Glasses

Thank you for the lovely welcome of the gift bag. We arrived late, so devoured the macadamia nuts! The unit was in great order and very well equipped. We've really enjoyed our stay & especially appreciated the beautiful bed linens and wine glasses.
