- We found this house with the help of Mary Kress in your office. I told her there were certain absolutes we were looking for. After several minutes (half hour or so), we liked this one. Her help was invaluable. The description and the pictures were helpful in making a decision. We were expecting a house that needed "freshing up" . This was incorrect. It has a truly ranch style feel about it, which we found to be charming and delightful. There was nothing drabby about the place. The hosts (owners) were friendly and more than helpful in finding great restaurants and places to see and places to avoid, all the while respecing our privacy. The location in Kehei, was very convenient for the many places and things we wanted to do. This house may be one of the best kept secrets on the island. One thing for certain was, the owners take pride in this house. The house was spotlessly clean on arrival; we kept, and left it that way the best we could. They obviously only want tennants that will appreciate being there. We did not have a bad meal in Maui, but, our favorite restaurant was Mama's Fish House. We enjoyed being on beachfront property, but our favorite beach for swimming and body surfing was Big Beach. I recommend the helicopter tour (Air Maui), parasailing (West Maui Parasailing) and a snorkling trip by boat. Nor Ka Hale is truly a 5 star resort (home) at a 3 star price. The only critical (unimportant) thing I can think of is, I would have liked a wide screen TV. I suggested that to the owner. He is considering that. We accomplished every thing we set out to do.
