Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Aloha and E komo mai (Welcome) to our studio condo which we have proudly named Hale a u’i lani (House of Beautiful Skies).

When you enter our Hawaiian home you will be immediately drawn to the spacious lanai overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. From our second-floor location your senses will be dazzled by the sights and sounds of Maui and all of the beauty you have dreamed about for your Maui vacation.

Resting just 20-feet from the water’s edge you will experience vibrant rainbows, spectacular sunsets, unmatched views of the islands of Moloka’i and Lana’i and the Humpback Whales playfully coming to greet you during their annual visitation (December - April). (No binoculars needed)

As spectacular as the beauty is outdoors … we encourage you to come back inside, make yourself at home, and experience the comfort of our condo; designed with classic Hawaiian furnishings and decor and filled with the Spirit of Aloha.

Once the warm Maui sun has set … enjoy preparing your meals in our fully-equipped kitchen, or sit back and enjoy one of the many DVDs that we have provided for you. Or if you prefer, mix up your favorite beverage, choose from one of the many Hawaiian Music CDs provided, and just relax on the lanai.

Even with all the beauty and excitement that surrounds you, at some point it will be time for sleep. Curl up in the queen size bed and let the sound of the ocean set the stage for a peaceful night’s rest. For additional space the sofa also pulls out to reveal a comfortable queen sleeper.

While on Maui, however you choose to spend your vacation, you will find the amenities available at our complex a good starting point.

There are a wide variety of beaches in the area to choose from. Beginning with our own Kahana Beach located just a few steps from the condo to the beaches of Ka’anapali, Kapalua and Napili; you are a 2-minute walk to a 5-minute drive from the beaches of your choice. We are in the middle of it all. No matter what kind of beach you are looking for … from rocky tides pools to explore, to wide sandy stretches, they are all here for you and your family.

We are nicely situated in Kahana between Ka’anapali and Kapalua; for dining and shopping you are a short walk to the fine restaurants and shops at the Kahana Gateway Center or a short drive to the world-class shopping found in Kapalua, Napili, Lahania, and Ka’anapali.

For more details on our condo and our resort’s amenities please see the amenities list provided on this site. ALSO, please look for the link to our personal website … we have packed even more information there for you.

Mahalo for choosing us for your Hawaiian Vacation.

About Michael and Jack

Hale a u'i lani (house of beautiful skies) is the name we have given to our home by the sea in beautiful Kahana, Maui. We have taken great pride in our Hawaiian home and, for you, we have created an atmosphere that is cozy and inviting for your Maui Vacation.

From our O'hana to yours we hope you have a wonderful vacation, and we send you warmest mahalo for choosing Hale a u'i lani.

To us ...you are no ka 'oi (the best) - Michael and Jack

Michael and Jack purchased this condo in 2004

Why Michael and Jack chose Lahaina

One of the outstanding qualities of our complex in Kahana is the fact that it is so very near all major attractions and sights in the area, but it is also enough apart allowing for a beautiful and tranquil spot to call home after a day out and about on the island.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting only 20-feet from the ocean you are treated to unmatched views of the islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i; whale-watching is outstanding right from our own lanai (in season); vibrant sunsets; and peaceful surroundings all make our condo the perfect spot for any occasion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The best value in Maui by far! My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon to Hawaii this November, and this condo defined cleanliness, style, and elegance. The decorative elements from pineapple and palm tree cabinetry hardware to a beautifully updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances was incredibly designed."



"I am an avid chef, and the kitchen was well stocked to meet my gourmet needs."



"We played tennis a few times during our visit on the court just across the street from the condo, and took a dip in the private pools as well to cool off."



"I talked with a travel agent who sat with us at the Old Lahaina Luau and was interested where my wife and I were staying. She noted that condos can be a hit or miss in Maui. I told her our place was definitely a hit - in retrospect it was hitting the jackpot. We also attended the Feast of Lele which Jack recommended for us in advance to book - we had the best seats at this terrific luau - definitely one of my highlights of the trip - Mahalo Jack!"



"Our honeymoon in November to Hawaii was our first trip there and an outstanding way to begin our marriage. We stayed at some of the nicest amenities like the top floor oceanfront of the Princeville Resort Hotel in Kauai (Rack Rate is $700+ nightly). We went directly from the Princeville in Kauai to this condo in Maui and although you won't get valet parking for parking spot #207 (it costs $15/day at the Princeville anyway), you'll get an immaculately designed and maintained condo unit which artistically rivals the room amenities and class at top resorts. Mahalo nui loa Michael & Jack."

You might be thinking, why this place looks so perfect? Simply because it is, you got to believe!

  • 5 of 5

First, I want to thank Michael and Jack for being great hosts. This was my first time visiting the island and, honestly, I couldn’t have asked for more. They provided me with very detailed information on every single topic I needed to know while on the Island ~Getting around, Directions to the place, Activities, Recommendation on favorite Beaches, Hospitals and Restaurant options among others.

This beautiful apartment is exactly as described but, pictures don’t make justice to how well put together this place is. Michael and Jack have done a terrific job and have thought about every single detail.

I grew up by the beach and coming to this place was like going back home. Kitchen area, appliances, cookware, dining ware…even some basic supplies, you don’t miss anything to make yourself at home. You even have a slow cooker you can use and by the time you come back home, have a nice meal.

Livingroom area and bed are super comfortable, you also have the option to sit down and have a meal inside or at the dining set outside in the lanai. It was relaxing for me to wake up to the sound of the waves and have breakfast while contemplating the blue waters. Same way, kind of magical sitting down to see the moon and the stars right before going to sleep.

Sunsets are truly amazing in Maui but, watching sunset at a place where you feel is like being at home is definitely the ultimate reward for your vacation time.

I really look forward to the next opportunity I have to go back and stay at this amazing place.

Beautiful lanai overlooking the ocean

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay in this condo, which is very accurately named “The House of Beautiful Skies.” Michael and Jack were extremely responsive and provided very helpful suggestions for dining and activities. They are clearly thoughtful hosts who take their role seriously and want guests to enjoy their island and home. The second floor lanai was my favorite part of the property - the view is stunning and the breeze feels amazing. It rained one day and I was perfectly happy sitting on the covered lanai reading a book and watching the ocean and palm trees. The sheets and towels all smell very fresh and the property is well cared for. Thank you, Michael and Jack, for your responsiveness and for ensuring I had a wonderful time in Maui!

Loved the condo and beautiful sunsets off the lanai.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely and just right for us. Beautifully appointed with tasteful, tropical-themed decor. Easy access to main road north and south without the noise and congestion of Lahaina. We will definitely be back!

We will return to this lovely studio condo!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk in you realize the pictures online are perfectly accurate. It feels like home because you've been looking at the site for months now, waiting for that plane ride to Maui! Jack and Michael are super hosts - they think of everything. We actually found nail polish remover under the bathroom sink so I didn't have to buy any! We ran into Michael a few times and once he even gave us a bunch of bananas he had picked from his tree at home!

We spent most of our time on the lanai. Morning coffee and breakfast or wine as the sun set, any time was perfect sitting out there listening to the waves crash and watch the sky. Your view is Molokai and Lanai and you find yourself just staring at these beautiful islands daily.

The kitchen was outfitted with everything you can possibly need, the living area was nice and roomy and the outdoor supplies they provide (noodles, boogie boards, cooler sacks, etc) were used daily. The pool across the street was fun and we were able to visit with a few of the residents there (homeowners and visitors alike). Truly I can't rave about this place enough.

We hope that our next trip to Maui comes quicker than this last one (10 years) and we will be staying at the House of Beautiful Skies for sure! Mahalo <3
