When we decided to go to Hawaii to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and a 60th birthday we were overwhelmed with which island to choose, where to stay and what to do? Well, we made the perfect choices!! Maui is an absolutely beautiful island with so much to offer for all interests! We did LOTS of research on where to stay on Maui and could not have made a better choice!! Highest on our priority was an ocean view and proximity to the water. HKOK208 had everything we were looking for and more! The view and proximity to the water is unmatched on the island! The highlight of our vacation was sitting on the lanai watching the sunset and enjoying a beverage. The condo was clean, extremely well stocked with high-end amenities, BEAUTIFUL views of the Pacific, and a convenient location. Kihei is centrally located so access to many beaches, reasonable restaurants and other parts of the island is very convenient. A grocery store is a 5 minute walk away!
We have worked with many other condo owners for other vacations in the past and Adam is by far the best! He thoroughly answered all of our questions during the booking process and continued to be responsive throughout our stay to be sure that we had a fantastic vacation. His attention to detail with things to do, places to see and restaurants to try were invaluable. We would highly recommend HKOK208 to anyone that has the opportunity to travel to Maui and, of course, when we return to the island we would only stay at HKOK208!
We hope that this review conveys the complete satisfaction that we had with our stay at HKOK208.
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for our honeymoon. In the time proceeding our trip, we could only imagine what Maui would look like from the pictures online. However, when we arrived at HKOK208, the view absolutely took our breath away. We knew the pictures were gorgeous but we had no idea what we were in for in terms of how absolutely breathtaking Maui is. I can honestly say that every person on this planet has to experience Maui at least once in their life. I have never been more happy or fulfilled!
With all that being said, Adam and Michelle of HKOK208 made this experience all the better. They made everything so incredibly easy from the check-in process, to having things available, to the check-out process. They do all the little things right and I mean every little thing. If you need things for the kitchen, they have it. If you need things for the bathroom, they have it. They also have everything you would need for the beach in case you didn't want to pack all your beach things traveling to Maui. To give you an example, I broke my toe walking on the Pipiwai Trail while on the Road to Hana (another experience I highly recommend). When we got back to the room, we came to find out the they had all the necessary equipment to bandage myself up. They literally have thought of everything.
The other thing that is so incredible about this place is the location. Kihei is such a relaxed and incredible little place. I can honestly say it was my wife and I's favorite spot to be in ALL of Maui. When we arrived in Maui we visited all of the cities. We loved Lahaina, but we thought it was a bit too busy and touristy for our tastes. We loved Wailea which is right down the road from Kihei but it is very upscale. Paia is beautiful but it didn't have the same hometown feel as Kihei. We could not have picked a better place with how it is located (close to shops, restaurants, beaches, and other towns) and the comfort/pace of the town.
I cannot recommend this place enough. Please give HKOK208 serious consideration as I cannot thank Adam and Michelle enough for giving us such an incredible experience.
What a wonderful condo. The rental process, check in, all the info sent to us beforehand made this a dream vacation. Adam was so helpful. We loved the low-key location of this condo, oceanfront. We had breakfast on the Lana’i each morning and watched the turtles pop their heads out of the surf. Great way to start the day. We will be back. Mahalo!
This was our first trip to Hawaii and staying at HKOK 208 played a large role in us saying that it was our first trip, not our only trip. Adam, the owner, has a great attention to detail and anticipating the needs of his and Michelle‘s guests. The communication with Adam via email was warm, inviting and detailed - as well as the instructions at the condo.
Our son gave us the gift of his frequent flyer miles to celebrate the conclusion of my husband’s 32 years at his job. We had our choice of many locations, and found that our choice of Maui (and HKOK 208) was paradise found. The condo lanai offered a different photo op every night of the sunset. We spent our time exploring Maui from top to bottom and swam and/or snorkeled at twenty or so Beaches.
We would definitely stay at HKOK 208 for future trips to Maui!
Thank you Adam for making changes to your schedule to allow us to stay at your place on our way home through Hawaii.
It's a long trip and we increasingly appreciate the chance to stop and recharge at your home before contining the journey back to ours.
The last few trips we were unable to stay with you and had to stay elsewhere. Walking back into your place and settling in reminded us just how much better the experience is when the owner takes as much care as you do. Not only was it like coming home, in so many thoughtful ways, it's better than home.
I read your guest book and clearly you and Michelle had another busy stay. I've never seen the place look better and, as usual, your attention to detail was reflected in our deep pleasure at being back.
Thanks. Your place is the best on the island.
This place is fantastic, just like advertised. Would stay again.
This is our second time staying at HKOK208 and we were very glad to be back. The condo is very well maintained, nicely appointed, fitted with everything you need and is quite comfortable. The view from the lanai is as good as it gets and we spent every morning out there. The owner Adam is super communicative and very easy to work with.
For us, Kihei is ideally located, providing central access to the entire island.
I have recommended HKOK208 to family in the past and they have also really enjoyed their stay. I would not hesitate to continue recommending this location for your stay on Maui.
The minute we walked through the door we felt at home. This was our third time at HKOK 208 and we were so blessed to stay six weeks. The sunsets are amazing a different painting every night. The first three weeks of our stay we saw the humpback whales put on an incredible performance. Thank you Adam for providing binoculars.
This is definitely paradise.
Thank you Adam for being so accommodating we appreciated having an early check in and a late check out .
God willing we will be back

Our stay at HKOK was incredible! The location was amazing for watching whales, seeing the occasional turtle, and walking on the beach! The property is well appointed with everything one needs for an enjoyable stay on Maui. We were very happy with the proximity to great food and beaches. The owner (Adam) was super easy to work with and very helpful. We will definitely be back!
Mahalo to Adam and Michelle for an amazing first visit to Maui! The condo is wonderful, exactly as pictured. The sunsets, well, I don't think there is a word to describe them. Such a great location, with just a short drive to anything we wanted to do (except of course Hana and Haleakala where there is no conventient location). Adam was amazing to deal with from the first day we booked. He provided a tremendous amount of valuable information before we even arrived. We saw turtles sunning on the beach outside the condo on our first day. We snorkeled with many turtles at Chang's beach, and did an awesome snorkel charter with Maui Snorkel Charters out of KIhei. We had an amazing whale watch with Ultimate Whale Watch out of Lahaina, and had a great experience doing the reverse road to Hana loop. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Maui - this is definitely where we will stay. P.S. The self-check in was wonderful and removed any stress you might normally experience trying to begin a vacation.
