Maui Vacation Testimonials

our guests say great things

We had an outstanding time!

My wife and I have just returned to the UK from our second visit to Hale O Ho’okipa. We had an outstanding time! Dave met us at the villa when we arrived to show us around and gave us some really great suggestions on places to eat and what had changed from our previous visit a couple of years back. We very much enjoyed talking with him and getting to know him a little. He is a great guy and will take care of anything you may need. Mahalo Dave! I highly recommend this villa and I feel sure any other that Dave manages would deliver the same quality and amazing overall experience.

The property was in excellent condition and was all that we hoped it would be.

The property and the unit are very well maintained. Wonderful views of the ocean. The unit essentially has two master bedrooms which was great since we had two adult couples. It is close to the pool, the owners provided towels, backpack chairs for the beach, boogie boards and toys for kids, if needed. The manager, Dave, was great and very helpful. The property is within easy walking distance of several good restaurants and an easy drive to shopping and dining.

Elegant Accommodations

Wake up to the sound of the ocean waves and enjoy the view with a cup of coffee! Right above the heated pool, 100 yards from the beach. Beautiful beach, good snorkeling, not easy swimming for young kids, but kid’s beach can be walked to on path about 15 minute walk away.

Spectacular views

This was probably our favorite VRBO property to date. The views are spectacular! Upstairs, downstairs, on the lanai, all around. The pool is a two minute walk from the unit and is one of several in the development. There is a 1.7 miles nature trail, most of it along the ocean just off the pool. Thoroughly enjoyed this property. Dave is a solid guy who was there for us when needed him. Well managed, well maintained. We took a couple of side trips with our 11 yr old. I would highly recommend Sail Maui for snorkeling at Molokai. You set sail from Maalaea, an hour drive from the property. Had a fun time snorkeling. Our son saw his first eel, along with an abundance of fish. Although this was a snorkeling adventure, it turned into a great whale watching trip as well. I would also recommend Skyline Eco Adventures for zip lining. They have multiple courses on Maui. This was our son’s first zip lining experience and we chose their 5 zip line course at the base of Haleakala. Great crew, great outing overall.

Kapalua perfect

Condo unit was perfect for two couples, very comfortable, clean and updated rooms. Large bedrooms, bathrooms and a small but adequate kitchen. Spent each morning on the lanai drinking coffee and watching whales, not bad. Ocean view was unobstructed and beautiful. Property common area was well maintained. Gated property with direct access to beach walk. Finally, Dave met us at the condo and did a great job explaining the unit details. We had a great vacation.

A week in Kapalua

Fantastic villa for two couples! Two beautiful master suites and tons of living area. We could not have found a better place to stay. Everything you could possibly need was at hand. Beach, pool, shopping, restaurants and privacy were right there. Dave was extremely helpful in getting us adjusted quickly. We highly recommend this villa.

Spectacular Villa

We spent 10 Days on a Golf Vacation on Maui and were lucky enough to rent this beautiful Villa. It was truly an amazing Villa, Two levels with awesome and stunning views from both. This Villa has a spectacular well equipped kitchen as well as snorkels and boogie board for the beach. Dave met us on arrival and explained everything about the unit, he also gave his recommendations on restaurants to try. It was an amazing place to stay, this Villa is one of the nicest beachfront places to stay in Kapaula. The golfing was just out of this world, and staying in Kapaula we received great discounts on green fees. With out a doubt I will be returning to Maui and certainly plan on staying here once again, OUTSTANDING !!!!!!!!!!. Thank you Dave

Fantastic Trip

My wife and I and our 12 year old twin boys spend a little under a week at this wonderful property in late June. Dave met us promptly at the villa and was very helpful explaining everything and he made it very clear that he was on call for us (didn’t realize this upfront) 24/7 while we were there. Fortunately, aside from a simple cable related question, we were able to leave him alone. We love Kapalua and to be able to stay so close to the water and have such amazing views was quite a treat. An added benefit that we took full advantage of for meals and the spa was having the Montage hotel about a 4 minute walk from the villa. This was when we didn’t make our own food in the fully stocked kitchen that had everything we needed. I would suggest, however, that some new frying pans would be a good idea as the 3-non stick pans were pretty scratched up–certainly not the end of the world though. Also, the beach in front of the Ritz hotel which is 5 minutes north is great for boogie boarding and body surfing in the waves as there is a life guard. The surf can be a bit treacherous at times but the life guards were always happy to explain in detail the current conditions and whether or not it was safe for children. All in all, we had a great time and it is not a matter of if but when we return again!

Wonderful, Beautiful Home with Great Location & Views

Spectacular home, the great video and pictures for this listing cannot do justice to the beauty of this home. Dave was a responsive and easy person to deal with ,who we appreciated. This is a home where you are immediately comfortable. It has a spectacular, well equipped kitchen and chairs and boogie boards for the beach. Close to shopping and restaurants, although easier with a car. Yet, away from hustle and bustle of south side of Maui. Great location on the coastal trail. We enjoyed walking that beautiful trail every single day. It is a very comfortable home that is a great place for a vacation. It is also a wonderful space that is very open with lots of views. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Plus, we loved the tempurpedic beds!
