Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Aloha, we are Terry and Jill, we are Realtors and we have been coming to Hawaii since the 1980's. We used to always go to Waikiki but now we find that West Maui in general and the Honua Kai Resort in particular take the Hawaiian experience to a whole new level. We love living in Vancouver B.C. but this place is exactly what we dreamed about in a 'home away from home'.
Jill purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Jill chose Lahaina
As Realtors we believe that it is all about location. (cliched but true) We scouted out several areas in Maui but found that the combination of easy access from the airport, beach front access, proximity to shopping, Whaler's Village and Lahaina made the location ideal. When you add in all that the Honua Kai Resort has to offer is was a 'no brainer'.
What makes this Condo unique
We love gourmet cooking and we find that having a fully stocked kitchen with everything from the salad spinner to the martini shaker was ideal for us. When we land at OGG we grab the rental car and then drive 1 block to Costco and load up. In the afternoon we will relax by the pool and then usually hit Duke's for Happy Hour to have a cocktail and an appie and listen to a little live Hawaiian music. We follow that up with some time on our lanai before either firing up the stove or heading to the bar-be-cue areas that feature many Viking Grills.If dining out is the plan we take a stroll down the boardwalk to one of many restaurants along the way or head into Lahaina. The boardwalk that separates the Honua Kai from the beach also comes in handy in the morning. We like to grab a coffee at Aina Market and take a leisurely stroll towards Black Rock and Whaler's Village. For those that love to run or jog the boardwalk is a scenic treat.

The beautiful Honua Kai
My family and I enjoyed every second of our 9 days at Honua Kai!!! The room was everything we were expecting from the listing and so much more! The views were beautiful and the attention to detail to the room itself, from the items provided for us to use to the instructions and user information that was left , all made our stay more enjoyable and stress free. You can tell the owners take great pride in caring for their home and the guests that stay in it:) Everything was clean and welcoming. It felt like our beautiful home away from home for those magical 9 days!
The Honua Kai resort itself was amazing! Our 2 children, ages 9 and 7, were never bored and did not want to fly back home when our vacation was over. The pools, water slide and plenty of beach access points were high on their lists of pluses ;) The snorkeling right of the beach at the resort was incredible. Mom and Dad enjoyed the breathe taking sunsets from our chairs by the pool while the kids swam their hearts out. We will definitely be planning a return trip as soon as we can!
Hi Matt, thanks so much for staying with us and taking the time to write a review!!

This unit should not be rented until it is remodeled for the water damage - mold and obvious bleach
My experience was one of the worst I’ve ever had and I did it even spend one night there the unit is so smelly and unhealthy -
Well it was bound to happen sooner or later. We have 3 suites at Honua Kai and have accumulated over 150 Five Star reviews with nothing less than a Four over 9 years of hosting.. NOTE: The same day this guest checked in the previous guest that checked out that morning took the time to write and posted a rave 5 Star review on the way to the airport. This guest arrived late, made no attempt to call us or our on island representative but sent us an email after midnight. They then proceeded to move the next morning to another hotel without even talking with us to allow us to help them. We had engineering sent up immediately the following morning who informed us the guest was still staying there. Engeneering even used a moisture scanner & they found zero water damage or any kind of mildew or moisture. We attempted to contact this guest several times but they had moved out and stated they were too busy and would contact us after they returned home. We asked that they at least cancel the booking with VRBO and open up the dates but they refused. Just in case we then had the AC serviced, carpets, drapes and grout cleaned. They still refuse to contact us but regardless we are dealing with VRBO to facilitate a refund. Please note that the next guests to check in after this ordeal just sent as an excellent review.
Highly recommended! The place was clean and well furnished. The owners were very accommodating and communicative.
Great condo near a great beach
Beautiful complex with awesome pools, shops, and a restaurant. Close to everything but still secluded. Can’t wait to return.
Very clean and well kept property! Easy to communicate with owners and they were very accommodating would stay again if we go to Maui and would recommend to others looking to stay.
We had a wonderful experience at the property! Will definitely come back back!
Whale watching, sea turtles and Dolphins. Some seasonal.
