About Barbara French

Barbara French purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Barbara French chose Honokowai
This location is perfect...central to lovely West Maui and all our favorite beaches, activities and places to visit. It is right on an uncrowded sandy swimming beach with awesome views and sunsets, and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Cooled by wonderful West Maui Tradewinds.
What makes this Condo unique
The privacy, the quiet, and the relaxing sounds of the ocean. The fantastic views of the ocean and neighboring islands and breathtaking sunsets to be enjoyed from the comfortable, private lanai....which also provides front row seats to whale watching in season, sea turtles at times and many other forms of marine life.

707 Valley Isle Resort
Lovely complex, direct view, and accessibility to the beach. The condo was well stocked. The unprecedented heat presented a problem as the unit is not air-conditioned. Living Room furniture is a bit outdated but okay if you do not spend much time in the unit itself. Home owners cordial and receptive.
Loved our stay
We wrote two pages in the guest book, but to summarize: The view was spectacular. The condo was well supplied; full kitchen, beach chairs, body boards even, wonderful updated bathroom. We didn't watch the TV or listen to music, but it was available. Our favorite thing was relaxing on the lanai and listening to the waves & just enjoying the view & read. It was the respite we needed.
I was sad to see the beach below us and the surrounding condos had to sand-bag part of the beachfront. However, there was still plenty of sandy beach to walk and take our chairs & relax on the beachfront next to ours. This did not detract from the enjoyment we had though.
Thank you so much. We hope to stay there again in the future.
We really enjoyed our time. Perfect Beach view from Lanai. We watched whales while having coffee from Lanai! Easy access to a beach and everything this Resort has to offer. We will come back again!!!
Great view, nice pool, no AC
The place is small, but cozy, with a neat view. Several eating options in walking distance: Miso Phat, Dollie’s, Maui Brewing Co, McDonalds. Come during whale season and see some whales! Unfortunately we didn’t anticipate how humid it would get in August and were regretful about it getting a place without AC, which is our fault. Thank goodness they supplied a couple fans, but if you are sensitive to heat as I am please think twice as there were several times when I had to go to the pool to cool down.
We are so happy we chose to stay in condo 707 at the Valley Isle Resort. The condo was extremely clean and well kept and had everything we needed during our vacation. The view was so spectacular that we spent almost every morning and night out on the lanai enjoying the picture perfect scenery. The beach is literally footsteps away and it never got that crowded which was great! We were always able to find 2 open chairs next to eachother and at times, the beach felt like our own private place. Richard and Barbara were so helpful and responsive to all our questions. We would definitely recommend staying here while in Maui and will stay here again on our next visit!
This studio condo is fant...
This studio condo is fantastic. It is our home away from home in
Maui. It is steps from the ocean with breathtaking views and ocean sounds 24/7.
The sunsets are beautiful and different every night along with an occassional
rainbow so photo ops are like none other. Being big fans of whalewatching,
we see tons of activity right from the lanai. We also enjoy cooking on the
equipped grills at poolside along with wining and dining on the lanai
especially at sunset. We are already booked in 2009 for our annual stay and
counting the days.
