Honokowai condo description
Our direct oceanfront Paki Maui condos are located in beautiful West Maui along the Ka'anapali coast above Lahaina. While relaxing on your Paki Maui condo's private lanai, you will have incredible views of the islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i and the breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets will be a lasting memory. Listen to the local sounds announcing sunset every evening by the blowing of the conch shells up and down the coast.
The tropical grounds of Paki Maui include a tranquil koi fishpond and waterfall, grassy lawns that overlook the beach and ocean - just perfect for sunbathing. A set of stairs lead you to protected waters - ideal for snorkeling. During your snorkeling experience, you may see the magnificent Giant Sea Turtles, many tropical fish and colorful coral. There is a gated heated pool and Jacuzzi area surrounded by lounge chairs, beautiful Hawaiian flowers and plants. You may choose to barbeque your meals on the two gas BBQ grills in the recently renovated pool/cabana area and enjoy your meal on your oceanfront private lanai.
If your travels bring you to Maui from mid-December through April, you will be treated to the magical experience watching the migration of the incredible Humpback whales to the warm Maui waters. Watch these “gentle giant’s” frolic in the channel from your lanai or book a trip on a local whale watching boat where whale sightings are practically guaranteed during this time. Pods of spinner dolphins and giant green sea turtles can be seen year round. Occasionally a Monk Seal will stop on the sandy beach for a quick snooze.
We completely refurbished and refurnished both units in May 2010, so everything is brand spanking new. Both units have new stone flooring. We decided to remove the old bath tubs and tiled in nice big showers with sliding glass doors. Bathroom sinks and johns are new, and new granite counter tops have been installed in kitchens and baths. The furniture is all outstanding and comfortable, we’re sure you’ll be right at home in the new digs.
If it is time for a low key 'no worries' vacation,
then Paki Maui 402A is the place for you.

Best Vacation Ever!
Best Vacation Ever!
Loved, loved, loved this condo! So much that we have already booked for next year! Owners, Janette and Kent are awesome. Condo is exactly as advertised. Spent almost all of the 2 weeks sitting on the lanai watching whales! The full kitchen is wonderful, as we enjoy fixing most of own meals here, or even bringing in carry-out and eating here. Can't think of anything I would recommend that could be done better! Waking up each morning and just looking out at the surf and hearing the ocean, makes you want to just stay in bed! Absolutely the best!! Love the Farmer's Market across the street, and the accessability of stores and restaurants within walking distance.

Ideal location for a relaxing vacation!!!
Ideal location for a relaxing vacation!!!
In July I had posted on Facebook that my husband and I were in desperate need of a vacation...... luckily I had a friend reach out to me and recommend this location!! A true blessing indeed. That same day I made contact with Janette and proceeded with reserving this condo for our vacation. Let me tell you our stay here exceeded our expectations and my husband and I plan on returning as soon as possible. The property is clean, keyless entry so convenient, a safe in the closet for personal belongings made me feel secure, washer and dryer on site, I can go on but you get the picture. LOL We fell asleep listening to the waves crashing right outside our window and we woke up to turtles that we were able to see from the lanai. Not only that but my husband was able to swim with the sea turtles. I also have to mention the concierge service available was amazing and she made all of our activities easy to plan. We ended up renting a car after all and they offer free parking which made things easy. We planned so many activities which is nice but the best part of our stay in Maui was just laying out on the chairs on the beach watching the turtles. The view is amazing!!!! We are already planning our return visit to Maui and my husband wants to stay in the same place because our experience was so great!!! I have already recommended this location to family and friends! Truly I could not ask for anything more from Janette and her husband they truly exceeded our expectations and so did the property! Thank you Janette for making the process so simple and easy! We already look forward to our return!!!!! Paki Maui is our second home and we miss it already!

Fabulous Vacation "Home Base"
Fabulous Vacation "Home Base"
My husband & I were looking for an ideal "home base" for our Maui vacation. The listing description was accurate & actually exceeded our expectations! The owners went above & beyond to make sure we had not only what we needed & what was promised, but what they thought we might like as well. The owners provided us with their contact info and were readily available if needed; but we never had an issue or problem during our 2 week stay. Having a keypad entry was great--no key to fool around with. The location of the property is ideal if you want to fully explore & experience the island. We'll stay here again if we get back to Maui; and we've already recommended this condo to friends. Boss Frogs is right across the street--those guys are very helpful. We enjoyed a sunset catamaran cruise with Trilogy & we had an excellent kayak/snorkel experience with Makena Kayak & Tours. This was a very memorable 25th Anniversary Trip!

Owner response: Aloha and Mahalo V and M: So happy you found the condo to your liking and it was what you had expected. You two left the condo in excellent shape. Mahalo for that as well, Thank also for describing the area so others are aware of what's around. I hope your trip home was great, and you are happy to be home as well. Mahalo for your very kind and thoughtful words. Angels on your day J and K
I have to admit, I was a little worried about what we might find once we arrived. Sometimes- heck most times things arent quite as they seem online. When we entered this condo which was fairly late in the evening.. and saw the place... we were THRILLED! It was exactly as the pictures showed, exactly as Jannette the extremely lovely and accommodating owner had said. The ocean, the breeze, the space... all of it couldn't have been better. When we woke up completely refreshed from sleeping in the more than comfortable bed, and really got a good look at things.. we were just delighted. The place was immaculate. We also thought that there wouldnt be much beach here but in low tide its perfect. You actually have the luxury of laying on the well manicured grass or lounge chairs or the beach itself. We went to Maui to get married and thought on our wedding night we would get a room at one of the pricier hotels on the island.. just in case the place wasnt as we hoped.. WE CANCELLED THE OVERPRICED ROOM THE MORNING WE WOKE UP! We would and WILL stay here again! and again.. and again....! Mahalo Jannette!! See you again soon! Michael & Yvette

Owner response: Aloha M and Y: I am totally awestruck by your review. Soooo many mahalos for such beautiful words. This review is profound. Wow.... But also in return, you two were such a delight. Normally I never knock on one of our guests doors, but when the adjacent guests told me of you two I couldn't resist. They described you both as having smiles from ear to ear. Now this I had to see. Oh and it was true, so very true. What a handsome and happy couple you make. And A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH. May your union be eternal. Bless you both, and please even if you don't come back, lets stay in touch. Ha Ha, but that's how confident I am, you WILL come back, maybe even for your first honemoon.. I'll get you the make and model of that comfy mattress as soon as I get back on Island. Angels on your day J and K.
Best honeymoon location
Best honeymoon location
My now husband and I absolutely loved this condo, it was exactly as depicted perfect! We will always remember this vacation as we had our wedding and honeymoon on Maui and have to say it is a beautiful place that we will return to and stay here again! We made great use of all of the amenities including the grill by the pool, we had many nice nights by the pool grilling steaks and talking to other vacationers or owners who all love the property but I have to say we loved our updated room the most:) The view from the top is the best! We left a standup fan to help add to the natural breeze you get and slept perfectly on the bed, which is saying a lot because we have a tempurpedic king bed at home, so I was concerned I might not sleep very well but the sound of the ocean put me right to sleep! I miss the sound of the ocean every night :( I feel that the condo was stocked with everything to make it our home away from home. It was very clean and relaxing. We can not speak highly enough of our entire experience and stay on Maui!

Falling asleep in the studio condo right next to the open sliding glass doors has got the be the "cats' meow" Ha Ha. Many Mahalos for your kind words and we look very forward to your return.

Our Best Stay on Maui Yet!
Our Best Stay on Maui Yet!
We originally tried to book the one bedroom next door, but found it was booked for part of our 12 day stay. I'm really glad we got this one instead though! While having a separated bedroom is nice, this studio is so spacious and roomy, and you can lie in bed and listen to the waves and look outside onto the palms trees, ocean and Molokai. The entire front of the condo is a wall of windows with large sliders that make the balcony feel like part of the condo. The ocean breezes keep the temp perfect, mixed with the quiet and efficient ceiling fan, you don't need AC at all. The condo is clean, and well appointed, it had everything we needed plus some. We typically go out to eat nightly in Maui, but this time around we only went out a few times, we actually started picking things up to go, or making food there and eating out on the balcony at sunset, it was way better than any of the restaurants on the island. We're also pretty active, usually we only use our condo for sleep, but found ourselves calling it a day early and just kicking back in the condo, at the pool, in the hot tub, the place made it easy to relax, which was such a nice change from our busy schedules. The bed was really comfortable, nice and soft, and nice fresh linens, including the duvet on the comforter. I think this particular unit has the best view of the entire complex, we checked out one a few doors down that had an open house, and it was amazing how a few doors down the view changed so much. There's a lot close by, a great coffee shop across the street, a natural market and a few small eateries all within walking distance. The complex too was well maintained, the woman at the front desk very friendly and helpful. Its also pretty quiet there, I've seen some reviews of the complex that say its loud, my guess is it was an isolated incident, everyone seemed really respectful, and kept it down when they were in the pool area and barbecues. Parking is easy, no assigned spaces, just get your parking pass when you get there. The keyless entry is fab, no worries about dragging around extra keys. I really can't say enough, the owners are great, they have a great place, you really can't go wrong. The worst part of the stay was leaving!

Owner response: Aloha and Mahalo SS: What a very very nice review. You covered everything and I couldn't have said it better. A special thanks for the fact that air conditioning is NOT needed. I can tell people that all day long, it just seems to be taken better by a previous guests. You review will be most helpful in future bookings, there's no doubt about that. Come back soon, we would love to have you stay with us again and again. Angels on your day J and K

We don't believe in perfection but our condo is just that. Everything promised was given and more. From early mornings on the lanai with whale watching/turtles and dolphins to the most breathtaking sunsets in Maui in the evenings, it was paradise. We had family in the adjoining unit and they are more experienced travelers than us but their comments were the same. The owners and staff are excellent at making everything clean/comfortable and complete. God willing we'll be back.

Owner response: Aloha and Mahalo back at ya D and E: I see everything has worked out with this attempt. LOL. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words. Your description is eloquent, I may have to use it some of my replies. You are very nice with your kind words. But I totally agree the condo is the best. Again I concur with you the sunsets are totally awesome. Mahalo for writing this review, I appreciate it so very much. I insist you must return. It's law now, and you must abide. Angels on your day JNK and KDK.
This condo was beautiful inside and out! The description was right on! The pictures are just as it is, breathtaking! It is a very clean and spacious studio. So much room! There is a closet and a large dresser. The kitchen had everything we possibly needed. A beautiful bathroom with a really nice sized shower. The bath towels are large, soft and wonderful! A king size bed and pillows to choose from. The bed was right next to the slider and lanai so you could listen to the waves all night long. The view from the lanai is magnificent! You are so close to the water! Watching the whales as the sun rose and all day long right until the sun sets. Words can't describe how beautiful the sunsets are. Even from the kitchen, there is a great view. Loved being on the top floor, it is a very quiet condo. The Paki Maui itself has gorgeous grounds and courtyard area. There is a nice lawn area with lounge chairs for sunning and enjoying the view. We liked being at a smaller complex without a ton of people everywhere. We also liked that we never had to run out early to grab a chair, there were always some available. The location of the Paki Maui is very convenient to everything. We were so glad to have beach chairs, a cooler, binoculars and large nice beach towels to use and not have to worry about bringing any of those items on our trip. The keyless entry was great! If we get the opportunity to return, we would definitely stay here again. We would recommend it to anyone! Working with Jannette was a pleasure. She was so helpful from the moment I asked our first question months ago. She was always quick to answer and happy to help. So glad we had the chance to meet you, Jannette! Thank you so much for everything!

Owner response: Aloha Trish and Vic: Many Many Mahalos for the kind words. I too enjoyed meeting the two of you. You have been very kind and thorough with your description of the condo. But since we are so passionate about the condos we feel the same way. The one thing I have not been able to enjoy is sitting out front for any length of time. When I'm at Paki, I'm always cleaning, Ha Ha. I loved your test "are you next door cleaning" That was great, yup who else would it be???? LOL I would so love to have you two back again. Please see that you bring her Vic. Again mahalo for you review, it is great and lets others get a feel for what it might be like for them. Angels on your day Jannette and Kent.
Dream come true!
Dream come true!
From the moment we walked up to the property, this vacation/second honeymoon was a dream come true for my husband and I. This trip was a second visit to Maui. Unfortunately our first visit/honeymoon was not so pleasant. We were in Maui when the events of September 11th unfolded. As for most people, this was a tragic and very stressful time in our life. One of the many occasions when marriage should be happy and joyful, we were overwhelmed with sadness. So with good reason, we were a little reluctant to return 11 1/2 years later. From the moment we booked our reservations, I knew this was going to finally be the honeymoon we deserved. Jannette was so pleasant and reassuring during EVERY interaction I had with her. She made us feel like we were truly going to our "home away from home." When we walked in, the room smelled so clean and refreshing, as if we were the first ones to ever stay there. The kitchen is gorgeous, and clean. I loved the shower and the decor. And the ultimate was to pull back the curtains and see the BEAUTIFUL view! The pictures do not do justice! To leave the sliding windows open at night and listen to the ocean and waves crashing, nothing compares. Literally sitting on the lanai watching the whales frolic in the ocean is a sight to see. And the sea turtles swimming right on the reef in front of us. As nervous as we were to return to Maui, I can assure you, we did not want to leave this time around! Amazing, breathtaking, refreshing, comforting, cozy, beautiful, are all some of the words that come to mind when I think of our "home away from home." If you are questioning whether or not this property is right for your stay in Maui, question no more! Book your stay at this property and have peace of mind knowing that you will not regret your decision! I know we will definitely be back, and we will be staying at the exact same place in the future! Thank you Jannette and Kent for allowing us to stay at your property. We were finally able to have the honeymoon we always dreamed of!

Hi Jannette, just had to comment on our stay. We couldn't have picked a better place to vacation, everything you told us about the condo was excellent. We didn't need to bring hardly anything. All was there waiting for us. We really enjoyed watching the whales from the balcony each day while enjoying a glass of wine. Sorry we didn't get to meet and say hello, but we really kept ourselves busy. Well, maybe on our next visit. Again, thanks for making our trip a very enjoyable one Ed & Sunshine Jasper, Texas

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are originally and still partially from Salt Lake City, Utah, we have lived in Maui for 11 years now, just down the street in Kaanapali. We love Maui, and hope to stay here forever more. We have become active in the community. We belong to Lahaina Yacht club and participate in many activities benefitting the children (the Keiki) of Maui. We have been in the hospitality industry (we owned a large nightclub/sports bar) for more that 20 years and feel we know how to take care of peoples needs. We are very friendly people, and if time allows we could get together for a refreshment or two. Yes, many people from Salt Lake really do occasion a cocktail.
Why the Owner Chose Honokowai:
As you already know, we have been here for several years, we have looked into many different locations and found that the Honokawai area and particularly Paki Maui to be the best of all worlds. Paki Maui has beautiful grounds that are exceptionally well maintained. It is located adjacent to a beach park. It is central to the Islands West side and has so much to offer within walking distance or a short drive. We are surrounded by beaches, golf courses, famous restaurants, the farmers market. Downtown Lahaina is only a few miles away where nightlife, shops and galleries abound. Whalers village is just a hop skip and jump away. Stop to see the Whalers museum and learn all about whales. If you are in the mood to stay in and enjoy the sunset from your lanai or the beach you have pizza, local cuisine, fresh fish, super market, deli's or numerous other food establishment only a short walk away.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
As brand new owners of these two units, we have checked and rechecked into vacation rental companies, and have decided to give it a whirl on our own. We did try a couple of them before we had renovated and they are just not good enough for us. We are way too fussy in the cleaning department. So if you are looking for somewhere that has taken extra care for your bedding, towels, dishes, floors and baths, you want to stay with us. We even ask that you remove your shoes. We want more for our guests than the big companies offer. We are in Maui most of the time and live only about 5 minutes away. If we are not available we have back up people (two) that can come to your every beck and call. About 50% of Paki Maui is run by Castle Management, and they man the front desk. About 25 % are people like us, or those that have chosen other Property Managers, and the remainder of the Paki is owner occupied. You are free to consult the concierges’ desk in the front office, and they are happy to exchange bills for the quarters you might need for laundry. Other than that we run our 4 units by ourselves.
