Nothing better than laying in bed listening to the waves rolling in just outside your door/window.
Turtles coming up on the beach 10m away, beautiful

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).

Early start because the hairdresser from the wedding day said it could take us up to 1 hour to get to the airport in traffic during peak hour traffic but it only took 20 mins. It was nice to have extra time up out sleeve thou as the security system was almost as bad as flying an international flight. Full body scanner, had to remove all items from …
... do flips. Beautiful to look at, but not on our bucket list of things to do!
We ate at 'Da Kitchen' again and even on a Tuesday night around 5:30ish it was packed. We got the Beef and Chicken Teriyaki Bowl to split this time. It wasn't quite as good as our dinner the other night and the service was much worse. They lost our order and didn't keep the water glasses filled once they finally brought them over. Good ...

... possible of all of this as I place my camera in my back pocket and fasten the button, my eyes fixed on the world before me. To see the detail, I look out to the corners of my vision, the way you do when you want to see all seven stars of the Pleiades in the Taurus constellation, some 443 million light years distant. I relax and become part of the flow. I am alone. At first I hear only my own breathing through the snorkel. When the rythmic sounds cease ...
... but we didn't want to be like Jack was and wake up at 4am, so we thought we would try and stay up to a reasonable time tonight. Stopped off at Safeway on the way 'home' and got the last of the food and drinks, and went back to enjoy a cold drink before being lulled to sleep by the sound of crashing waves. Wow, this is paradise! I think we will sleep well tonight!!!
I cannot figure out how to get pictures uploaded...stay ...
