Why Fereshteh Tali chose Lahaina
Honua Kai offers the newest modern conveniences, with a beachfront Ka'anapali location. Multiple pools keep all ages interested. Fitness center, Dukes Restaurant and Aina Market on site. But still close to Lahaina, shopping, Whaler's Village, and many world class beaches. Enjoy the best that Maui has to offer!
What makes this Condo unique
Location, location!! Overlooks the quiet pool in the inner courtyard of the Konea building. Only steps to the pools, beach, Dukes, and fitness center. 3rd floor location allows a spectacular view of whales in season, and gorgeous sunsets.

Vacation in Paradise
Property was everything we could have asked for. Location was good for us and the setting was beautiful!

Very happy with the condo and amenities. My only complaint was to do with VRBO. Excellent help from the property owner.
Hanua Kai Resort--#K325
Our family of six adults just returned from a wonderful 9 night stay at the Hanua Kai Resort.
The condo itself was just as described in the VRBO ad; it was lovely with amazing ocean views across the grassy courtyard and quiet pool. The furnishings were quite nice and appropriately themed. Everything was there to fulfill our needs and we were very comfortable. It was very clean and neat.
However, our initial arrival was not pleasant. They seemed understaffed and the lack of assistance was evident. We were not greeted by valet as we were told we would be. We arrived about five minutes before the check-in time of 4:00 PM. The girl at the bell desk said to go away and come back at 4:00 because we couldn't get into the condo before 4:00. I explained to her that by the time we finished the check-in process, it would certainly be after 4:00, and that it would take us longer than five minutes to get to our condo anyway. She finally relented and continued to let us register. There were no available bell/valet people, so we made numerous trips to get our luggage, groceries, and three golf bags to our third-floor condo, by ourselves.
Once settled into the condo, our vacation was fabulous! The location is very convenient; Whaler's Village is a short drive south, and just a bit farther is Lahaina. A walkable distance from the resort is Times Market, other small shops, and "Slappy Cakes," a great place for breakfast. The pools were nice, with efficient service from the Duke's employees for lunch or drinks.
The wrist bands that worked as our condo keys, towel retrieval, and gate entry were a real convenience.
The only other negative comment I'd have (besides check-in) would be the grossness of the trash room down the hall. We frequently would empty our trash/recycling cans there and never saw it without many bags of trash on the floor. The room's odor was bad! It seems that the resort should monitor that small room more often.
All-in-all...we would definitely go back to Hanua Kai! I would have given a 5-star overall rating for our CONDO, but for the "overall" RESORT rating, the difficulty checking-in and disgusting trash room took it down a notch.
Thanks to Fereshteh Tali and everyone else associated with K325!
Top notch accommodations!
First of all, the photos on the website didn’t do this property justice. It’s an emasculate condo in a great location! From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. We arrived later in the evening so check in was quick. The condo is fully equipped. The view from the lanai is absolutely gorgeous. We spent every morning out there. Kitchen is a cooks dream. The three bedroom boasts lots of space so you don’t feel on top of each other. Pools and all the facilities are great as well. Friendly staff at the Honua Kai. Communication with Fereshteh was a breeze and she was certain to respond to any inquiry I had almost immediately. We didn’t get a chance to personally meet her but we will definitely be returning, so hope to meet her then. This condo is in a great location in Lahaina. Close to, or just a short drive to many stores and restaurants and just a short distance to every water sport available. Check out was a breeze as well. We hated to leave!!! Thanks Fereshteh!!
Very nice unit in Honua Kai
A true 3 bedroom unit with 3 ample bathrooms, very nice living area, and an outstanding balcony and view. I can't imagine there is a cleaner unit in the development, or one that has nicer finishes. This is a very nice unit.
View to the ocean and beach is excellent. Property has elevator access, and a small market on the main level for things you may need (but it is cheaper to do your grocery shopping in Lahaina).
By my count, there were 4 different swimming pools in addition to beach access. The beach at this part of Maui is a little skinny, but you don't have to go far and you get a much wider beach.
Underground parking was very nice to have. We never had to walk far and you were back in the unit. The vibe at Honua Kai is lots of families. We liked that the property is far enough away from some of the mega developments like the Hyatt and Sheraton so you don't have any Luau noise or things like that.
There were a couple small things about Honua Kai I would suggest the association work on, but those things apply to all units. We had the fire alarm go off a few times in the building during our stay, access to the most central elevator from the parking garage was acting up for about half the stay. The pools could stand to be cleaned more often. Again, those are points about the association -- this particular unit is immaculate, comfortable, and quite gorgeous.
Great place to stay
We just recently visited this property and specifically this unit. Everything in the listing including pictures was exactly what we got. We had 6 adults and 1 infant, and it was plenty of space for everyone. The unit and the property were top notch.
Fereshteh was extremely easy to work with and quick to respond and help with questions.
Would definitely recommend the unit and property.
