... I'll wager our pace is quite slow. ------------ The Maui Ocean Center is a good place to let the kids run and it has some attractive and effective exhibits. However, it is a little pricey at $70-plus for two adults and a child. Our online reservation allows us to return again in the next week at no charge. I think I've already lost the pass though. Henry has had some atrocious wind since before we landed and it ...
... world. :). We snagged a rental car, (Macyn had to wait for the rooster to leave before getting into the car) and a quick half hour drive Kehei and we were checking into our beach front hotel. The views stunning, the air was hot and wet, and the sound of the ocean filled our ears. This is a slice of paradise. After settling in we hit the beach for some play. The waves were big, Macyn got ...

Our destination is a waterfall. Around 5 P.M. we find it. The trail is under a dense canopy of trees and the day looks much later because the sun cannot get through. Since there are NO snakes on the island I don't have to watch for them under rocks and brush as I go.
It is a beauty of a hike and gives us both a good work out. By the time we reach the trailhead where we started it is not long until ...
... sitting on our back porch, looking out at the ocean as the sunset turned the sky and few clouds over the palm trees pink and orange. As it got dark we came inside, and now I am writing this blog listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach, and eating some caramacs. Caramacs are delicious chocolate and caramel macadamia nut candies. The Road to Hana was amazing, and gave us another glimpse at just how beautiful Hawaii really is.
... to a convertible. This time we got a black Chrysler. It looks mean. Haha. It cost us extra $15 per day and made Vlad very happy. We immediately took the top down and drove to Sonia's apartment in Kihei, about 25 min drive. Sonia greeted us in her spacious 4th floor apartment with a large lanai. After chatting for a bit we went to a nearby beach at Kalama State Park while Sonia continued working ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hale Kamaole Kihei
Individual units vary greatly
We just returned from a weeks stay at the Hale Kamaole. Thought we enjoyed our stay, we spoke with others staying there and found that units varied greatly. Each unit is individually owned and have different amenities according to the owner.
Some of the items that we in other units, but not ours, include: clocks and TVs in the bedrooms, beach chairs and toys, tennis rackets, coffee filters, toiletries, pen & paper, and briquettes for the BBQ.
Our condo was in one of the middle units giving us views of both the upper and lower units, which is much different than the one featured on their website (see posted photos).
The wireless internet access advertised doesn't have enough power to reach the majority of the units.
We stayed in unit #239 for 2 weeks and found it well equipped and confortable. the location is great, across from kamaole III beach which is great for snorkelling with minimal gentle waves. The complex is at the south end of Kihei which means a 10-15 min walk or short drive to dinner, although there is plenty of choice.
The Hale Kamaole met all our expectations as first time Maui visitors - just returned home Feb. 6 and we want to go back!!!
We just spent a week in Hale Kamaole suite #165 from Jan 8-16 and were extremely happy with the location and facilities. This is probably the best spot on Maui if you want to be in the center of all of the great places to visit. Kihei also seemed to have good weather when the rest of the island didn't, which is a main reason I would stay in Kihei again.
The Hale Kamaole is a nice place to stay and reasonable, but I am not convinced it is great place for a family with children. It seems to be an unofficial retirement complex. We were on the first floor close to the front (#169), and our upstairs neighbors were an older couple (60+), and they owned and lived in their condo. The wife harrassed us all week to keep our voices down, turn down the music, keep the kids from yelling and screaming at the pool...etc. I decided I had enough and went to the office to express my displeasure and they promptly gave me a $50 gift certificate to Foodland and apologized for her behavior. They said she does this all time. So that was a cool thing to do, I wasn't looking for a freebie but it was a nice gesture.
If you're happy with being across the street from the action...
Good, solid family property. We stayed in unit 136. Nice, clean ground floor unit with all amenities and steps away from the upper pool. I'd recommend it to people on a budget who are happy with not staying in a waterfront property. The only gripe I had was the lack of parking in the evening.
Holy Kamaole! Great Place to Be!
What a wonderful vacation my daughter and I had at this complex! The lkarge one bedroom unit we stayed in was lovely, newly upgraded,sleeps four and NOT crowded at all... with just about ANything one would need for a fun vacation, ie: Boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, lots of extra beach towels, etc. A pretty classy condo.
Although I am aware every unit is individually owned, there are some really nice ones at this property.
Kam beach 3 is directly across the street, Wailea a five minute drive, fanstastic eating establishments nearby. Close to everything :) At this vacation spot you get a real bang for your buck, without compromising comfort. BEST LOCATION!
I WILL GO THERE AGAIN< Definitely.
Our family of 5 just returned from a week at the Hale Kamaole. We were a bit apprehensive about staying there because we were not able to get much information about this condo. The one review we found on this website made us decide to give it a chance. Our unit was a two bedroom, split level with a loft, it was very nice. It was very roomy and had a great ocean view. It also had a washer and dryer as well as air conditioners in the bedrooms. Almost all units have a view of the ocean. Some of the ground floor units may not have those views. The grounds were well maintained and the ocean was a short walk across the street. The thing about condos is that they are individually owned and each unit can be different. Ours looked like it had recently been remodeled. For the price it was great.
Good family spot
Two family group spent two wonderful weeks there in two condos . Very clean condo units with good selection of kitchen accessories and bonus supplies in the frig. All condos are ocean view or partial ocean view.
