Previously, we had stayed in the Kaanapali complex. This trip we found a bargain $135/night, one-bedroom condo at the Kaleialoha. This was definitely a good-news, bad-news situation. We had put a deposit on an air-conditioned unit with a king-size bed, but they switched us to a non-air-conditioned unit with a queen-size bed. We had free parking, but there weren’t enough spots for all units. Luckily, we are evening-at-home people, so we always found a parking spot. The condo was beautifully decorated with a Martha Stewart-like kitchen, and the bath had been remodeled with a great walk-in shower. The best room in the place was the lanai with its view. Mornings were the best, mid-afternoon sun was way too bright, sunsets were wonderful, and the moon and stars over Molokai and Lanai were very special.
Beach access was a wood stairway at the corner of the property onto the sandy beach next door. From our lanai, sea turtles could be seen poking their heads up and waving their flippers. I did hear a snorkeler comment that there is nothing alive out there directly in front of our condo. Those turtles must be pretty lonely. Kaleialoha also has a lovely blue-tiled swimming pool.
We did experience a lot of noise at this condo. The condo next door was being remodeled, so we heard saws, hammers, sanders, etc., all day. The grounds’ crew had some leaf blowers that reached a very high decibel level. Our condo had quiet-time hours that were observed, but the one next door apparently didn’t do this.
