... Whale skeleton suspended so that was cool to learn about. As we walked back towards our room they were having a nightly cliff diving ceremony. Basically the traditional tribe believed if you dove from Black Rock Cliff your body would join the plane of the dead and one day a revered Chief disproved this by diving and returning to the land of the living so they continue the ceremony every night to honour this. We were back on the shuttle to Lahaina for dinner at a place ...
I think it's Friday what does Friday mean when every day is the same :-) The rains hit hard early this morning but I do believe we are going to have a rather nice day what a treat.

Today James took a private kiteboarding lesson right where the sport was invented.
I had gotten some great advice to check out Paia a nearby beachfront town with lots of good shopping. So I left James to learn a new extreme sport and quickly burned 2 hours buying souvenirs and checking out lots of the boutiques. For a moment, I lamented not knowing the gender of our baby because there were so many cute baby ...
... foot dropoffs with no guard rail and your speed rarely exceeds 15 miles per hour. We made many stops along this highway to hike trails, visit floral arboretums, view spectacular waterfalls and black sand beaches. The road passed by coconut and eucyluptus trees and groves of bamboo. We visited a state park, Waianapanapa, and the Haleakala National Park of Kipahulu. At the national park we hiked to view Oheo Gulch which ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nohonani Condos Lahaina
Home In Paradise
We stayed in the Nohonani Condo room 403 and couldn't have had a better time. The condo was excellent due the the views, home feeling, and easy access. It was very clean upon entering and there were no problems while we were there (10 day stay). The cleaning ladies brought us extra towels even though we didn't need any, but they were very pleasant also. It is a great location to everything on Maui and the pool and beach were also great draws to this condo. I would rate this place an A+.
1. Great views, on the beach, whale watching was terrific.
2. Location was fine.
3. General building, grounds,surroundings were adequate.
4. We appreciated the roominess, 3 bedrooms worked perfect for us.
5. Replacing the carpet, at least downstairs, with tile would be a dramatic improvement, make it easier to clean and have a cleaner feel than the old carpet.
6. Kitchen, appliances, furnishings were all fine.
7. My wife would have appreciated better sheets on the large beds.
8. Overall, we were pleased; and for the price felt we got good value.
Awesome views from a beautiful condo
I have stayed in 5 star Hotels around the world for my job. The view from these units can not be beat. We rented a unit on the fourth floor from Blue Robinson and it was awesome. Our unit was nice for my family and I can not complain about a thing. The private beach and the fact that the complex is only 28 units made the vacation one our whole family can't wait to repeat next year. This place is a winner.
Wondeful Slice of Heaven
We have stayed at the Nohonani numerous times over the years. It has always been a special place to our family. From its ocean front pool to its own private white sand beach, the Nohonani is like your own private retreat on the shores of Maui. It has a quiet ambiance with just 28 individually owned units,
We have always found the grounds and landscaping to be well kept, the pool clean and the water sparkling. The property is 20 some years old but is well maintained and the public areas are all clean and maintained daily.
Many of the owners have upgraded their units over the years and they keep them in top condition. You have to request an upgraded unit from the on property rental person. There is also another rental agent off site, MauiLodging.com, which only accepts recently remodeled units at the Nohonani.
Some guests may have been placed in older, dated units that absentee owners have not maintained. All units are individually owned and therefore each owner's responsibility to maintain. By making sure you get an upgraded unit, you should have a wonderful vacation at the Nohonani.
A Huge Disappointment
My wife and I had the misfortune of staying at Nonohani in a 2 bedroom unit with another couple for a torturous twelve days. When we arrived, we discovered that the unit was filthy, from dirt on the walls to grungy carpet we didn't dare to walk on barefoot. The upholstered furniture was stained, and there was mildew growing on the carpet and in the bathroom. The kitchen was disgusting. I could go on and on....... Blue, the manager, refused to move us to a different unit. We tried to move to a different resort, but it was the Christmas season, and we couldn't find any availability elsewhere. She did have someone come back and attempt to clean, but they sprayed a little Windex around and said they were finished. We ended up washing all the sheets and linens before we would sleep on the bed, and we used the newly cleaned linens to cover the rest of the ratty, dirty couch and chairs. Our unit didn't even have a working smoke detector, as the top was cracked off. We have been coming to Hawaii every year for the past twelve years and have travelled to all parts of the globe, and we have never stayed at such an unsanitary place. We didn't get in the pool once, because it was dirty and the bottom always had debris in it. Not once did we see anyone put chemicals in the pool or clean it. The grounds were nothing to speak of, and had no flowering trees or bushes. After all, this is Hawaii!! Nohonani is no Paradise, so avoid it at all costs.
This facility is a health hazard!
We stayed in various places in Hawaii five times. We have traveled exten-
sively thru-out U. S. and Europe and we have NEVER been to a place
that was this bad!
Our daughter arrived two days ahead of us (My son was being married
and thank God, staying at another hotel.) She spent two days trying to
deep clean this place. The wallpaper was hanging off the walls the
carpet was fiflthy. Blanket and sheets were smelly! There was black mold all over the fridge and the
showers. Our compalints where not responded to at all by management.
When it rained, water was running thru the louvered glass bedroom windows and the living room patio door. The rug consequently was
soaked and probably the source of the mildew thru-out the unit.
We went out a bought sheets to cover the couches so we could sit
on them. My daughter took photos and I am just sorry we did not
report this place to the Board to Health or police department there,
but we were trying to have a good time for my son's and new
daughter-in-law wedding. STAY AWAY IF YOU CAN HELP IT!
Great location and views.
We have been returning to the Nohnani for the past 19 years. We love it's nearness to the ocean, and especialy the oceanfront master bedrooms. It has it's own sand beach, which is a rarity when you get north of Ka'anapali, and an oceanfront pool. All units are oceanfront. There are only 28 units so the atmosphere is quiet and friendly.
There are 2 separate rental programs operating on the property. The first is Mauilodging.com which has an office just down the street. They will only accept the units that have been remodeled and upgraded.
The other rental program is located on the property. They control the balance of the rental units. Some of these are not in very good condition as they have not been upgraded since being built 30 years ago. You are generally not given a choice of unit, but assigned one by the management.
Nohonani Condos is a Great Value
Being in the travel industry my wife and I travel ... a lot. Rarely have we been more pleased than with the accommodations at Nohonani Condos. The complex was immaculate, and the condo itself was very comfortable and inviting. But it was the staff that really made our stay enjoyable. Blue Robinson reminded us of an Innkeeper at a Bed & Breakfast, not your usual front office manager. Very attentive and friendly. Pete and his staff keep the grounds in tip-top shape.
Thank you, Nohonani Condos for one of the most memorable vacations we ever spent! Keep up the great work!
Good value with homey ambiance
Quiet little condos in the lap of the ocean. We stayed in unit 302 for one week in October. 2004. When you drive up, they look older and dated from the outside. But inside, each condo has a beautiful oceanfront view that takes your breath away. Their reasonable price and location makes them a sure bet for taking in Maui's beauty.
Our first condo, a one bedroom unit, had a dirty, worn carpet and was rather hot and stuffy even with the windows open. We asked to be upgraded and were graciously moved to a two bedroom unit that was very nice and much cooler.
The master bedrooms face the ocean and we slept every night surrounded by the soothing rhythm of the ocean. Our unit was clean, and well equipped, but a little dated inside.
We did have to pay for our upgraded unit, but it was well worth it. Ask to stay above the pool and above the second floor.
The Nohonani is in a great location and close to many amenities. If you are looking for beauty, peace and quiet on a budget, the Nohonani is a great deal!
One of the few resorts on West Maui with a beach
The Nohonani doesn't look like much from the street, but the units are very well appointed (I've been in 20 or so, and my husband and I stayed in one of one-bedroom units a few years ago for a few days). What we especially like is that this is the only condo where every condo has a bedroom which is practically in the ocean: let the roar of the surf put you to sleep. There is an ocean-side solar-heated pool, plus Bar-B-Q's and of course the private beach. This is a very comfortable place, and "Blue" is an excellent manager. It's one of my favorites - and I've stayed in many because I refer people to condos on Maui (it's my specialty).
